Ayurveda is an alternative healing technique that goes back to ancient times. It is an ancient traditional Indian medicine system that believes that the human body is made up of the five elements earth, water, fire, air and space energies. According to it, each living being have 3 types of energies in them vata, pitta and kapha. Any disturbances in these energies cause diseases. According to this holistic method of healing, diabetes is the result of imbalance in kapha energy, which contains the earth and water elements. Diabetes happens because of a decrease in the digestive fire. It prevents the body from metabolising energy and eliminating toxins.A study at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, says that Ayurveda can successfully treat diabetes. Researchers from this university conducted a controlled clinical trial where participants had to undergo a six day Ayurvedic based wellness programme. This programme included a vegetarian diet, meditation, yoga and massages. All participants reported measurable decreases in a set of blood based metabolites associated with inflammation, cardiovascular disease risk and cholesterol regulation . This study is published in Scientific Reports.

ICE Isn t NICE, read one woman s poster, styled with an upside down Amazon smile. The climate is changing. Can we?, read another. Sporting T shirts and hats from pro worker and immigrant rights organizations, the group sang protest songs and chatted with local media. Near the curb, a stack of empty shipping boxes mimicked the now ubiquitous urban sight of Amazon s package debris. They were also spray painted with faux cautions: WARNING: Contains Jails Cages. Contains worker abuse. How did Amazon s automated convenience mart become a rallying point for multiple justice movements? For many, the powerful mega retailer serves as a one stop shop for climate, immigration, and labor rights concerns. We see all of these issues as intertwined, said Kung Feng, an organizer for Jobs with Justice San Francisco, a pro labor coalition. Our health as families, our health as workers, and the health of the planet these things are all connected.

So, Land Rover has pulled off the impossible replacing the iconic Defender with a car that doesn t fill the internet cauldron with boiling bile and a dash of vitriol.Weirdly, in 2011 Land Rover revealed a concept car showcasing what, potentially, just maybe, a possible Defender like reincarnation could look like.

Los Angeles can be treacherous for mountain lions. Poisons, wildfires and endless streams of traffic all make navigating the urban landscape to seek out what remains of the wild a difficult task. And dealing with both may have gotten P 61 killed. The mountain lion, collared and enrolled in the longtime National Park Service study of the pumas, may have encountered an uncollared mountain lion, believed to be roaming in the hills east of the 405. Pumas are brutally territorial. P 61 may have retreated from the eastern hills to save his own life only to die in traffic trying to get to safe territory.It s a sad reminder that, if we value the presence of these wild animals in our midst, we have to work harder to make it easier for them to survive. The California Legislature just squandered a great opportunity to protect mountain lions by stalling a bill that would have banned second generation anticoagulant rodenticides. Mountain lions that eat animals killed by the rat poison end up sick or dead themselves. It s ridiculous that legislators caved to the pesticide industry on this.
