Presenting Shubham Stories on my blog as a part of April Invitations….
Hey Readers , As the April is started, its time to read some post of participants of April Invitations…
Here is the post from “My experiences with myself” which is about nature walk. How nature affects your body – mind and overall health.
First day of the ‘Shinrin Yoku’ Nature Walk…
9th Jan 2019
Jahanpanah City Forest
Today we went to the Forest. First day of the ‘Shinrin Yoku’ Nature Walk…
From 8.15 to 10.15 am
Amidst city, such a thick forest land. It’s Wonder! and especially, quite good maintained. Impressions are so vivid and real even now (2 pm).
I sensed the connection and established communication with silence of trees. Moist Air touching, really like ‘bathing’ experience… not just fresh air but gush of it in abundance… and trees so big and tall, they much above us (in physical sense obviously, but i mean here in overall evolution sense too!) we too small in front of them… we just feel big and inflated, whereas in nature, we are just nothing… they are connected, above as well as below… and they so magnificent, their shapes, they dancing, very many figures, each so…

Who don’t like summer cooler drinks in these Hot Days …? Tell me what’s your favorite drink….. these days?
I am sharing today a very very basic drink which you can make from only 2-3 ingredient & it is also an easy and quick recipe.
What do you expect to make from 2-3 ingredients? Guess….
Punjabi-o-di favorite LASSI. I made it last week and thought to share with you. I made the basic lassi not the flavored one. For that I used only 2 ingredient to make – Yogurt and Sugar. For garnishing I used chopped pistachio .
- Yogurt 1 and 1/2 cup .
- Sugar – 1/2 cup
Add both the ingredient into a bowl and blend it with blender. U can add icecubes to make it cooler. I used cold yogurt and after making I refrigerate lassi for half an hour so I didn’t used icecubes .
After blending the lassi is ready to serve. Pour it in the glass and garnish with your favorite chopped dryfruits.
Make it, try it & Enjoy your summer cooler. Share what else you prefer to get cool in these summery days.
Happy Summer . Stay Healthy , Stay Happy.
Summer is arrived in India with full fledged and we all are sweating all day long except those who don’t sit and work in Air-conditioned rooms and offices. Even if you have AC rooms at work place you may not have AC cars to save your self from the heat. Along with that problems we also suffer for what to wear in summer to be sweat-free all day long and also protect your skin from suntan.
Summer is all about wearing short and sleeveless clothes in cool prints and colors. So when you get sorted with the outfit for a day then the next problem will be unwanted hairs on your body, especially for women. Women always love them and feel confident when they look perfect from inside out.
To clear this unwanted hair problems, I got the Solution. You are having the options to do shaving or waxing immediately to remove those unwanted hairs. But for long term solution this product is best to choose. This is based on the Ayurvedic formula.
The product name is NEUD – Natural Hair Inhibitor. Firstly I love its packaging, comes in double packaging. So the glass bottle be safe and cap is also double so if one of them get damage the product still remains in good condition. The consistency of product is just like cream, so the little amount of cream covers a large area. According to instruction it should be massaged in circular manner and let it absorb into the skin. It doesn’t harms the skin. I also like its fragrance.
Effects of it will be seen after long time , approx 2 weeks. I have seen good results of it on my skin. I am going to continue it for long time. NEUD is natural hair inhibitor , it works on the roots of hair shaft and cuts the excess hair growth points.
NEUD reduces your hustle by :
- Painless freedom from unwanted hairs.
- Saves your time of salon.
- Hair-free skin for long period.
- Stops growth of unwanted facial & body hairs.
I would highly recommend this products to those who have fast & heavy hair growth. You can get this product from www.neud.co.in .
Estrogen is the Primary female sex hormone. It is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics.
Estrogen plays a critically important physiological role in the maintenance of pregnancy and in fetal viability.
Estrogen acts as a regulator of muscle energy metabolism and muscle cell viability. Menopause leads to the cessation of ovarian estrogen production concurrent to the deterioration of muscle function.
Menopause, is the time in most women’s lives when menstrual periods stops permanently.
Menopause and Lack of Estrogen – Effects on the body
- Lack of estrogen may play a role in the development of anxiety & memory problems according to a new study.
- Areas of the brain that are involved in mood, behavior and cognition have a high concentration of proteins that bind to estrogen.
- Menopause is associated with severity of disc degeneration in the lumbar spine.
- Available evidence strongly supports the involvement of estrogen deficiency in disc degeneration, as well as the benefits of hormone therapy (HT) on the total lumbar disc height in post menopausal women.
- Estrogen deprivation leads to the death of dopamine cells in the brain, a finding by Yale research. “Without estrogen, more than 30% of all the dopamine neurons disappeared in a major area of the brain that produces the neurotransmitter , dopamine.” Redmond said,”The results of the study shed light on why men, who have less estrogen in their bodies & more androgen to antagonize it,are more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than pre-menopausal women, and why post menopausal women are more likely then to develop the disease.
- Urinary tract infections are among the most common diseases affecting over half of all women at some point in life & repeatedly in 25% of these. Menopausal women have an increased risk of recurrent urinary tarct infections, which has been associated with low estrogen levels.
- Estrogen stimulates the production of the body’s own antibiotic & strengthens the cells in the urinary tract. According to the study published in the journal Science Translation Medicine, show that estrogen supplements may help menopausal women to ward off recurrent UTI.

Hello Pretties , What’s happening at present in your mind?
Do you take care of yourself precisely? You may be thinking what I am talking about… Right? I am talking about the feminine hygiene. The most important thing of being women.
As you grow , become mature you will understand why feminine hygiene is important. I am going to share some facts which I came to know while reading other blogs on feminine hygiene. What products you use while menstruation ? After menstruation ? or what you do if you are having problem of vaginal discharge? While all these periods taking care of your vagina is very important. Why? Because you must be using sanitary pads, tampons, panty liners,etc.
Do you know how they are made?
- Sanitary pads are not purely made of cotton but they’re made of cellulose gel , cellulose fibers can cause cervical cancer.
- Pads are made of plastic materials, some chemicals that are made to plastic like BPA & BPS can complicate embryonic development. The plasticizers can actually lead to organ damage.
- The Dioxin (chemical which give white color to the pad) present in the pads can cause ovarian cancer.
- Pads contain pesticides and herbicides.
- Perfumed products can imbalance your normal body pH level and it increase the chances of developing bladder infections. Bacterial infection caused by staph. aureus can leads to Toxic Shock Syndrome.
After presenting this above information to you guys , I would recommend to use organic products which is made up of organic cotton (without pesticides and herbicides) , non perfumed. I recently come in contact with the brand which makes organic pads, panty-liners, intimate wash, menstrual cups. I got my hands on Everteen-Daily Panty Liners recently.
Everteen panty liners performed so well. In comparison with other brands which I was using regularly these were amazing. It’s 100% cotton so it was ultra light weight, gives protection for upto 8 hours. It doesn’t leave any rashes to the skin.
More information about Panty liners-
- A panty liner is similar to a pad or sanitary napkin, but a little lighter, thinner and not used to soak up too much of your menstruation/period blood.
- It can be used to absorb daily vaginal discharge. post-intercourse discharge or even a light period flow.
- If a panty liner is worn to protect against light menstruation, discharge, light urine leakage or spotting, it should be changed as regularly as you change a sanitary pad.
- If the panty liner is worn for any other purpose, it should be changed as soon as it feels moist, & probably after no longer than 8 hours.
- Use of pantliners regularly is not encouraged as they can be a source of infection or irritate the vulva skin. Their best use is as a temporary measure to prevent staining from light flow or discharge; if you do want to wear them regularly, choose non-fragmented and 100% cotton to at-least ensure less chemicals are in contact with you.
Everteen has a huge variety of organic products for feminine hygiene. You can check them at www.everteen.co.in
Hello, readers. Sharing a news about auto regulatory fabric invention by ‘the scientist of University of Maryland.
Source of the story : Scientists-develop-first-fabric-automatically-cool-or-insulate-depending-conditions
Despite decades of innovation in fabrics with high-tech thermal properties that keep marathon runners cool or alpine hikers warm, there has never been a material that changes its insulating properties in response to the environment. Until now.
University of Maryland researchers have created a fabric that can automatically regulate the amount of heat that passes through it depending on conditions. For example, when conditions are warm and moist, such as those of a sweating body on a summer day, the fabric allows infrared radiation (radiant heat) to pass through. When conditions become cooler and drier, the fabric reduces the heat that escapes. Infrared radiation is a primary way the body releases heat and is the focus of this new technology.
A paper on their work was just published in in the journal Science.
“This is the first technology that allows us to dynamically gate [regulate] infrared radiation,” said YuHuang Wang, a UMD professor of chemistry and biochemistry and one of the paper’s corresponding authors.
The researchers created the fabric from specially engineered yarn coated with a conductive metal that allows. Under hot, humid conditions, the strands of yarn compact and activate the coating, which changes the way the fabric interacts with infrared radiation to allows more heat . They refer to the action as “gating” of infrared radiation, which acts as a tunable blind to transmit or block heat.
The base yarn for this new textile is created with fibers made of two different synthetic materials—one absorbs water and the other repels it. The strands are coated with carbon nanotubes, a special class of lightweight, carbon-based, conductive metal. Because materials in the fibers both resist and absorb water, the fibers warp when exposed to humidity such as that surrounding a sweating body. That distortion brings the strands of yarn closer together, which does two things. First, it opens the pores in the fabric. This has a small cooling effect because it allows heat to escape. Second, and most importantly, it modifies the electromagnetic coupling between the carbon nanotubes in the coating.
“You can think of this coupling effect like the bending of a radio antenna to change the wavelength or frequency it resonates with,” Wang said. “It’s a very simplified way to think of it, but imagine bringing two antennae close together to regulate the kind of electromagnetic wave they pick up. When the fibers are brought closer together, the radiation they interact with changes. In clothing, that means the fabric interacts with the heat radiating from the human body.”
Depending on the tuning, the fabric either blocks infrared radiation or allows it to pass through. The reaction is almost instant, so before people realize they’re getting hot, the garment could already be cooling them down. On the flip side, as a body cools down, the dynamic gating mechanism works in reverse to trap in heat.
“The human body is a perfect radiator. It gives off heat quickly,” said Min Ouyang, a professor of physics at UMD and the paper’s other corresponding author. “For all of history, the only way to regulate the radiator has been to take clothes off or put clothes on. But this fabric is a true bidirectional regulator.”
According to the Science paper, this is first textile shown to be able to regulate heat exchange with the environment.
“This pioneering work provides an exciting new switchable characteristic for comfort-adjusting clothing,” said Ray Baughman, a professor of chemistry at the University of Texas who was not involved in the study. “Textiles were known that increase porosity in response to sweat or increasing temperature, as well as textiles that transmit the infrared radiation associated with body temperatures. However, no one before had found a way to switch both the porosity and infrared transparency of a textile so as to provide increased comfort in response to environmental conditions.”
More work is needed before the fabric can be commercialized, but according to the researchers, materials used for the base fiber are readily available and the carbon coating can be easily added during standard dying process.
“I think it’s very exciting to be able to apply this gating phenomenon to the development of a textile that has the ability to improve the functionality of clothing and other fabrics,” Ouyang said.

Hello buddies, Hope you all are getting healthy knowledge from my blog. Must read & share all the post if you are interested to be health and make your community healthy.
Today’s talk is about Soft Drinks. Why you consume soft drinks? You really love them, Are you sure ? You love them as a drink for energy? or for taste? or for your digestion? For what reason you consume soft drinks? You can answer it in the comments. So give the the answer first and then read further.
What is soft drink? It is a high fructose, caffeinated beverage.
Consumption of sugar sweetened soft drinks and fructose is strongly associated with an increased risk of Gout in men, finds study published by The British Medical Journal.
Okay, don’t consider that it is risky for only men. It is not at all beneficial to any age human. Not for women , not for your child , because soft drink consumption is associated with aggression, depression and suicidal thoughts in adolescents. Aggression , attention problems and withdrawal behavior are all associated with soft drink consumption in young children.
You may find soft drinks beneficial when you are thirsty in summers, especially. But that is only for your mind. Soft drinks doesn’t serves any benefit for your dehydration. The first fluid you drink to re-hydrate following a period of dehydration should be plain water not a sugar-ladden drink.
New research suggests that drinking sugary, caffeinated soft drinks while exercising in hot weather may increase the risk of kidney disease. The study is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology — Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. “The consumption of soft drinks during and following exercise in the heat does not re-hydrate,” the researchers explained. ”
Have you find any other good reason to drink sot drinks at anytime for any need?
Thank you for being here. Share it in your family and friends to apprise them.
STAY HEALTHY, STAY HAPPY.
Hello Readers, Coming back after so long with this post , An eye opener post. Always love to share healthy information and here again with that.
Presently every food contains some unwanted unhealthy nutrients. either to keep them fresh for long or during their production/manufacturing or for taste betterment. Today’s information is on Salt, the basic needed ingredient in almost every meal.
Over 90% of sampled salt brands globally were found to contain micro-plastics, with the highest number coming from salt sourced in Asia, according to a new study co-designed by Kim, Seung-Kyu, Professor at Incheon National University and Greenpeace East Asia.
Recent studies have found plastics in sea food, wildlife, tap water, and now in salt. It’s clear that there is no escape from these plastics crisis, especially as it continues to leak into our waterways and oceans,” said Mikyoung Kim, Campaigner at Greenpeace East Asia.
The study highlights Asia as a HotSpot for global plastic pollution meaning that the ecosystem and human health in Asian marginal seas could potentially be at greater risk because of severe maritime micro-plastics pollution.
Assuming intake of 10 grams per day of salt, the average adult consumer could ingest approximately 2000 micro-plastics each year through salt alone, as the study suggest.
“The findings suggest that human ingestion of micro-plastics via marine products is strongly related to plastic emissions in a given region,” said Professor Kim, Seung-Kyu, corresponding author of the study. “In order to limit our exposure to micro-plastics,preventative measures are required, such as controlling the environmental discharge
So that’s it guys , Reduce your plastic use for your upcoming generation’s health and of-course for your health. See what you are eating at present and what people will eat in future – Plastic Plastic and Plastic ?
