The onset of winter makes us yearn for spicy foods with extra fat Fried

buttered curries, mirchis- bhajilyas, dal with ghee and regular cafeteria

jaunts for hot samosas and tea is the order of this season. Sadly, such

comfort food can be quite unhealthy and fattening. In addition, added

reluctance to exercise in cold weather means most people will gain

weight in winter

There is a huge difference between what and how much food the body

requires and what the mind yearns for in winter. While, cold weather

demands extra calories to keep warm, the energy needs of winter and

summer are not poles apart in India. In India most of the regions

(barringa few freezing northern parts) have mild and sunny winters

Does Spicy Foods & Alcohol Keep us Warm?

Strictly speaking, spicy foods and alcohol do not warm up the body

of sweat. Alcohol also has a similar end effect.

to be cooked in lard or re-heated oil that is rich in trans-fats that clog the

fresh oil is a much healthier proposition


Here are some diet tips for winter:

Alternative Healing Theraples
Do they really cure?
People from all ages have turned to the spiritual world for healing trom
diseases. Seeking divine positive interventions for one's health 1s an
essential part of many major religions. As science can investigate tne
natural world only, it surely cannot show whether divine intervention
is possible; that question can only be left to a person's faith.
Amongst religious heads who operate, so to speak, "in good taith,
lurks another kind of faith healer: a seething pantheon of godmen,
gurus, fakirs and faith-healers whose practice of faith healing is
deliberate hoax. Their aim is money and fame, so it is no surprise
that these cheats tend to operate through public performances.
Using basic conjuring tricks and the ignorance of people, these take

empires that are Worth millions.
Faith Healers
The notion that divine intervention,
prayer or the care of a supernatural
healer can cure disease has been
popular throughout history.

famous mostly curing mentally Approximately
all Indians seeking help for mental-health problems, first, consult
local traditional healers be it in villages or big cities. Faith healers,
fakirs and godmen are by far the most socially acceptable way to try
to cure mental illness in the country.
Some faith healers claim to get medical information about the
diseases of their audience from God. Their unexplained knowledge
evidence of their divine healing ability, but in reality, they
get hold of this information through some cheap and ordinary
means to trick these gullible audiences.
Talking about these growing phenomena, DrJ. Mayurnath Reddy,
consultant psychiatrist, Yashoda Hospitals, said, There are very few
psychiatrists in India and very few mental hospitals (only in cities) to serve
India's entire population. It is one of the lowest ratios anywhere in the
world. But even if there were more professionals, it might not matter. As
lack of awareness, inadequate hospitals and social stigma attached with
mental patients lead them to seek faith healers help. Psychiatrists compete
not with each other but with healers and gurus in India.
This means that most people in the country go untreated for severe
depression, substance abuse problems and psychotic disorders. Or rather
these people go untreated by qualitied doctors. instead, they turn to the
Faith healers disseminate extremely hazardous misinformation in defending
their practice of withholding medical treatment and seeking spiritual means
Solely for the cure of diseases.
Is there any proof that faith healing really work?
The first step in approaching this question is to identify what should be
considered as evidence that an ailment was cured by a supernatural
method. In my view, the evidence must be based on 3 basic criteria:
1. The disease must be the one that normally does not get well without
medical treatment
2. There should not be any medical therapy involved that may intluence
the disease.
3. Both diagnosiS and recovery should be provable by detailed medical
As far as I know, none of the above criteria were ever met. No faith healer
has ever sent the medical records ot his/her patients. None of their clients
(or patients) were ever examined by a physician before and after the
healing was administered. No faith healer ever compiled data, inquired
about his/her patients health, months or years after the healing, or even
kept statistics to show what percentage of people with various diseases
ere healed. On the other hand, there are many documented cases wnic
shows that people with serious disease have died due to abandoning
effective medical care after being healed by these so called faith healers
Tips to identify fraudulent Faith Healing Frauds
Faith healers are, simply said, con artists seeking money. Their trade
depends on our ignorance and sometimes lack of scientific or medical
investigation. Accordingly, it is apt to be careful with any godmen (sod
women), spiritual gurus, fakirs, faith healers, etc., who seek favours and ask
for money in return for healing, and that tells the patient to avol
conventional medical therapy.
