Injaculation Benefits and Risks: Know Before you Practice

Injaculation is keeping your semen/sperms inside your own body and don't letting it spill. The motive behind injaculation can be any one of the following: birth control, not wasting your energy, or to attain a higher level of meditation. Here we will provide some information about this less known topic and provide some insight to those who are researching for such tricks. While i was researching on the topic of Injaculation, i found that there is another medical term for it, which is "retrograde ejaculation". Ejaculation is normal release of semen through the urethra after some sort of sexual activity (as shown in figure with blue arrows). Injaculation is somehow uncommon and shown using the green arrow in the figure.

What is retrograde ejaculation ?

Retrograde ejaculation is a medical condition where sperms/semen travels backwards into the urinary bladder instead of going out of the body through urethra. We have got the same one tube in penis (urethra) that let us urinate and secrete semen. When a man is about to ejaculate the muscles at the base of urethra, known as sphincter, contract to block the way to urinary bladder, so that semen has only one way to go (i.e. outside the body). But if due to some reason sphincter fail to work or there is a blockage in urethra, then semen forcefully flows backwards into the urinary bladder. It is a leading cause of male infertility as very less or no semen comes out during the process of intercourse.
There are various reasons behind this condition. Some of them are given below.

  • It may happen after a surgery of prostate region.
  • Radiation therapy to treat prostate cancer may damage the muscles in that region.
  • Some medication can also cause temporary numbness in the pelvic region which may cause retrograde ejaculation.
  • Intentionally blocking the urethra to cause retrograde ejaculation.

Treatment of retrograde ejaculation depends on the cause. In most of the cases medication don't work as this condition is caused due to muscle or nerve damage. If the damage to the muscles and nerves is recoverable then treatment remains effective.

Deliberate Injaculation

Some people deliberately practice injaculation. There are various motives behind this practice. Some of them are listed here.

  • Sperm Retention: Some people practice injaculation to preserve their semen, which is life energy according to them and should not be spilled for pleasure. Know more about Sperm Retention.
  • Birth Control: Some ancient tradition of the world practiced injaculation as a way of birth control. However this practice was not 100% effective and was harder to implement. 
  • Meditation Practices: Some traditions believed that injaculation send the unused sperms into the brain and help in attaining higher level of meditation and consciousness level.

To practice deliberate injaculation people use to either press base of penis just before ejaculation to block the urethra or press a point below perineum to let the semen flow into urinary bladder. These methods are hard to master and often done incorrectly which may result in pain in genital.

Benefits of  Deliberate Injaculation

Most of the so called benefits of injaculation are already covered in above portion of this article, but one of the most important benefit that make men interested in it is that Injaculation can help you stay longer during intercourse and control your release time.

Risks of Deliberate Injaculation

According to medical science there are various risk factors connected to deliberate injaculation.
Sometimes pudendal nerve can get damaged due to incorrectly pressing the perineum, which may result in loss of sensation in genitals and nearby skin. It is a critical medical condition. Squeezing the base of penis to hold ejaculation is often advised by sex therapists to prevent premature ejaculation. So instead of pressing the perineum and damaging pudendal nerve, its better to press the base of penis.

Note: Those who believe that deliberate injaculation will send the semen back into body should know it that there is no scientific evidence to prove this theory. Even if the semen goes into the urinary bladder, it will come out through urine the very next time you urinate.

Does Sperm Retention makes a man Stronger !

Some people believe in sperm retention while some say that masturbation is healthy. Those who believe in sperm retention say that sperms take a lot to be produced and thus take a part of your life, and if you waste them then you shorten your life. While others who believe that masturbation is healthy say that sperms are produced naturally for the purpose of ejaculation and if you don't then you are going against the forces of nature. Whom should we believe is a tough decision to make. Human mind often believes the one which suits its own needs. Here we are going to find and answer to this tough question of sperm retention. 

Some thoughts in favor of Sperm Retention

Just like other animals human body is made to reproduce and keep its genes and species alive. If we keep mating or masturbating then our brain thinks that the natural process is going on smoothly as it can't distinguish between real and fake sex. But if you abstain yourself from masturbation or real sex then our brain starts believing that something is wrong and the very first step that it takes is to improve your looks and voice to attract the opposite sex for mating. It does so by extracting the energy from the unused sperm which is itself a combination of proteins, minerals, vitamins and healthy enzymes. Those we believe in this theory say that our body absorbs the sperms back if they remain unused for 15 days. Positive effects are described as good looks, deepness in voice, improved confidence level, improved muscles,  and high testosterone level. All these things are done by our brain to attract women but same can be utilized to earn success in life.

While researching on semen retention i found that it does not mean totally abstaining from real sex but to keep yourself from releasing the semen and learning the art of self control. 

Facts in support of Sperm Retention

  • Every animal on this planet has a particular mating season while humans don't.
  • Other animals keep saving their energy all around the year and save their sexual desire for a few weeks to month during a year.
  • Jews abstain from masturbation due to religious beliefs and they are one of the most successful and most rich people around the world.
  • Some Tibetan Buddhists practice sperm retention to achieve higher levels of meditation.  

What does Medical Science say about Sperm Retention

While researching on sperm retention some experts advised not to do so as it is against the natural process and we should let the sperms be released in the natural way. Forcefully abstaining from releasing the sperms can result in sperms/semen congestion and may create some medical condition.
Some medical problems that are often encountered by those practicing sperm retention are:
  • Pain in the penis and testicles upon arousal.
  • Inflammatory discomfort in seminal vesicles and testicles.
  • Unintentional erection is another problem as a result of biological response from body.
Morning and evening walks with bit more physical activity like exercising is necessary if you want to practice sperm retention.

What will happen to unused sperm ?
This is a common question that comes to the mind if you start sperm retention. Some say that stale sperms can cause diseases while some say that they are used by body as a source of energy. The truth is that unused sperms are absorbed back by body and all nutrients present in it are used for nourishment. Our body is a very efficient machine and takes care of all those aspects that we don't even know. Sometimes we get indulged in sperm retention unintentionally, for example due to busy schedule or due to some emotional challenges (such as death of a close one). At such time we practice it unintentionally and don't get any disease due to it as our body handles it naturally. 

Final Conclusion about Sperm Retention

This final conclusion is a personal opinion and you may believe it if you like but keep in mind that it is not an expert advice. Usually we start believing something first and then try to find some facts that support that something, which is a bad practice. Instead of infecting your mind with some preconceived notions, we should search for truth. Here the truth understood by me is very simple. Don't force yourself for sperm retention, as if you do it forcefully and going from a high speed to zero then most probably some accident will occur. Natural things take time. Cold turkey abstaining from sex or masturbation may harm and cause medical conditions which are stated above. So instead of that practicing the self control is the better way which is stated in italics in the middle of this article. Diverting your mind from sexual thoughts to other intellectual thoughts can help you in this practice and you may do so by engaging yourself in some intellectual group or by reading some literature that suits your needs.
Compared to a teenager, a man in his 50s can easily practice sperm retention as it is natural in that age. A teenager should not be encouraged for sperm retention as that is the age when sexual feelings and organs start to work and practicing sperm retention at that age may create some abnormality. Abstinence is something that comes from mind and can't be imposed on someone, so it should not be forceful.

How does Porn harm your Brain Body and Life !

Watching porn is just an addiction like smoking and drinking. Fun fact is that people are not aware of that. If you are also one of them then it is better to read this complete article before you watch some porn again on internet. Pornography got popular in past few decades at a very high speed due to invasion of internet in our daily lives. However porn was there even before internet in the form of pictures and videos, but that was less accessible and people don't use to keep them in their mobile phones. This porn is not only corrupting our social life but changing the way we think. You will understand this thing as you reach the end of this article.
We will tell you the harms that porn has done in two sections. First section contain only the easily visible effects on body while the later sections contain some deeper information about porn addiction an its effect on brain and social life.

How porn harms your Body ?

While i was searching for answer to this question, i found a lot of website telling the good effects of masturbation as it is the direct effect of watching porn. Watching too much porn means too much masturbation. However some say that masturbation is healthy but there is a some difference in opinion between different writers. What i understood is that Masturbation is healthy if it is not an addiction, else it will make one's body weaker than before. Those who masturbate a lot after watching porn often complain of weakness in legs at the end of the day. Some common notions in society is that porn addicts have one arm stronger than other as they use it during masturbation. But this factor can't be proved because one arm is always stronger than other. All right-handed people use their right hand for most of the tasks such as writing, throwing or to do anything with a precision, which makes it stronger than the other. Apart from this physical effect some believe that masturbation makes a person more skinny and cheeks start to shrink. Some people believe that masturbation weakens your bones and joints and joints start to make sound like an old age person. After masturbation your body needs rest and long sleep, and if you don't get it your body will show some signs of it. Some sports coach often advise their students to abstain from sex or masturbation to keep that energy for their competition.

How porn harms the social life ?

Those who are addicted to porn try to remain alone so that they get enough time for their addiction. It cuts them from from social life and causes a decrease in confidence level. Sometimes such people often face depression and inability to talk to other gender as porn remain in their mind all the time. Some teenagers also find porn a reason behind poor grades in their academics. These poor grades can also become a reason behind low confidence during other phases of life.

How porn harms our Brain and Social Life ?

You must have hear the proverb, "Practice makes a man Perfect". You will understand its implementation now. Our brain learns from our basic senses of seeing, hearing and smelling. This process continues for whole life (not just the schooling phase). Watching porn engages our two senses with full concentration, i.e. eyes and ears. Even if you watch with no volume, you use one sense with full concentration. Even if you watch it for a minimum 15 minutes per day, then it is sufficient to make changes in your brain.
In normal consequences sex binds a person to other (usually a man and a woman). It makes some changes in our brain and creates a bonding with the one you were intimate with. But when it comes to porn, you create that bond with pornography, not will something real. Our sexual behavior affect that part of our brain which is responsible for our social behavior as well. So pornography can easily affect our social behavior by changing the way we see ladies in a social circle. The more you watch pornography, you will start feeling differently for the women. Overall impact on our brain is that instead of creating a sensual and intimate image of just your girlfriend or wife, porn enslaves your brain to fit every women under that image. Even if you try to not think so, your mind will say that there is no harm in just thinking. But the reality is that your thinking will be visible in your unintentional behavior, which affects your social life.

Just like we fight against other addictions, we need to understand the severity of porn addiction and save our close ones from falling prey to it.

What should be the TDS value of your RO Water purifier

Most of us stop worrying about purity of water after installing a RO water purifier, which is an essential part of modern kitchens. The truth is that we never care about the TDS value of the output water. In 1980 WHO published a research paper which said that low TDS water is harmful for human body. Today we are drinking water packed in plastic bottles with very less amount of minerals in it. In our last articles we discussed how this low TDS water is acting as a slow poison for our body. Here we will tell you about the appropriate TDS value of drinking water to live a healthy life.

TDS value of Natural Water
TDS value of water differs from one geographical region to other depending upon the minerals in the soil and their solubility. Therefore TDS value of water differs from 30 mg/litre to 6000 mg/litre.

TDS value and the taste of water

Water of different locations with same TDS may have different minerals in different proportion. Taste of water changes with their TDS value and the minerals present in it. According to a WHO report the taste of water and their TDS value is directly related to each other. Following table show that relation
Taste of Water
TDS level (mg/litre)
ExcellentLess than 300
Good300 to 600
Fair600 to 900
Poor900 to 1200
UnacceptableGreater than 1200
If you talk about the taste of water with very low TDS then its taste will also be unacceptable due to its flat and insipid taste. You may find the above information in a WHO document on the following page.

"If it tastes good then it is healthy"
Some of you might not agree with the above statement but some will. If you have got a healthy body then your tongue can better decide what your body needs. The nutrients that your body needs will be found tasty by your tongue. However it might not be true if your are suffering from some medical condition such as diabetes, where psychological factors make you like those things from which you should abstain yourself. For a healthy human being tongue is the best  testing kit for nutrients. If you are finding the water tasty enough to drink then most probably it will be of correct TDS value.

If the TDS value of your water is between 200 to 500 the most probably it will be good to drink. The WHO report of 1980 recommended that the minimum TDS in drinking water should be 100 mg/L. It also recommended that the TDS should be about 200-400 mg/L for chloride-sulphate waters and 250-500 mg/L for bicarbonate waters. You may take the following WHO page as a reference to this information. 

We don't encourage people to stop drinking purified water, but to make them drink water of correct TDS value that can provide them sufficient amount of minerals.

Low TDS water is a Slow Poison

When we talk about poison, we take it as a organic or inorganic compound that can kill us within a certain time. Here we are comparing low TDS water with slow poison. Some of you might not be aware of that, but it is a reality. Several researches have confirmed the health hazards of low TDS water. These hazards are listed in detail in this article and it will open your eyes about the severity of this issue. In our previous article we revealed the fact about how leaching capability of water increases by reducing its TDS, which is usually done by most RO water purifiers.

How does low TDS water become more reactive?
TDS means total dissolved solids, which includes minerals and other organic ingredients (such as some bacteria and other micro organisms) dissolved in water. These solids dissolved in water make it stable and unable to leach anything else from the containers. When TDS is lowered using RO water purifiers the reactive capability to leach chemicals increases. It makes that water absorb solids from the nearby environment such as its containers or the air coming in its contact. Low TDS water become a slow poison if its nearby elements contain any such chemical which is harmful for health.

How does leaching capability of water affects our health?

  • Plastic: We all know that plastic is harmful for health, but we don't take it seriously. BPA is a harmful chemical compound present in plastic. It might harm us less when normal water is stored in it, but when you store low TDS water in it then due to higher leaching ability more BPA can be absorbed by that water. If you have a RO purifier then please notice the container. Is it made up of plastic or something else. Most of the RO purifiers use plastic containers. BPA can cause infertility in men and hormonal imbalance in body. It is severely harmful for fetus and infants.
  • Heavy Metals: If the Low TDS Water is coming in contact with metal, such as a pipeline or a metal container, or the nearby air, then it can absorb some heavy metals from it which can affect our health later. If calcium and magnesium are present in water then they protect the water from absorbing heavy metals like lead and cadmium. Low TDS water have lesser amount of calcium and magnesium and makes that water prone to absorbing heavy metals.
  • Leching of minerals from body: Yes, Low TDS Water can leach minerals from our own body. Instead of providing some minerals to our body, this water can leach minerals from our body and drain them out through urine which can make our body mineral deficient. Sodium and potassium are the main minerals leached in this process, which are necessary for proper functioning of our nervous system.

 Now you know why low TDS water is slow poison for our body. If you want to save yourself from this effect then

  • Stop using the plastic containers for your RO water storage.
  • Don't store the RO water for too long as by the time time you drink it, it would have done sufficient leaching.
  • Most important is to keep the TDS level of your RO high enough to provide you sufficient nutrients.

If you want to know how much TDS level should be appropriate to drink then read our next article.

RO water of low TDS is harmful for Health

A few days ago i was watching a video claiming that RO water, which is now common in most households, is decreasing the immunity. Immunity power is that power that makes us capable to resist from different types of virus and bacteria and keep our body healthy. That video claimed that the purity of RO water makes our body loose its resistance power and we become prone to more diseases. In this article we will try to figure out if there is some truth in such claims or not.

When we researched on internet and the official website of WHO (World Health Organisation), we came to know that the claims about low TDS and its effect in decreasing immunity were correct. If you want to know how then read further.

How do water of low TDS impact negatively ?

  • It is a tendency of water to extract the minerals from nearby substances to increase its TDS and become less reactive. When a RO decreases the TDS value of water, it become highly reactive. If that water is stored in plastic container of a bottle then it can become severely harmful. Even if it is not stored and just used for drinking purpose, then it will try to add minerals into it from the mineral reserves in our body and drain them out through urine. 
  • TDS is Total Dissolved Solids. TDS measures the amount of solids, both organic and inorganic, dissolved in the water. It also contains soe essential minerals for human body. When a RO purifier reduces the TDS value of water, several essential minerals are also lost along with the micro-organisms that are harmful for us. Water with low mineral content is harmful for our body. 
  • According to a research published on WHO website when some rats are given water of TDS less than 75mg/L then it increased the water intake, diuresis, extracellular fluid volume and serum concentration of sodium and chloride ions and their increased elimination from body. Overall it is a very negative effect on rats. The reduced amount of minerals in water can't be compensated by balanced diet which is adequate in caloric value, nutrients and salt.
  • A similar experiment was done on human volunteers as they were given water of TDS value less than 100mg/L. They reported the same results as rats and increased the elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium ions from the body. It confirmed that water of low TDS is severely harmful for human body.
  • Some symptoms that are often seen in people consuming low TDS water for short duration are tiredness, weakness and headache. If it is done for prolonged duration then more severe symptoms are muscular cramps and impaired heart rate. Low TDS water leaches the essential minerals from body and function of some of the vital organs of human body is affected.
  • Those who are familiar with Water Poisoning, know that if very high amount of water is consumed in a short time then it can be poisonous sometimes. Chances of water poisoning is quite high with RO water due to it low TDS value.
  • Minerals such as sodium and potassium are very important for nervous system to work properly and their deficiency can result in problems in brain functioning.
  • Deficiency of these minerals not only make us sick but also unable to fight diseases due to weaker immune system.
  • Lack of minerals can also create hormonal imbalance in body.
  • You may visit this link of WHO if you want to confirm the facts written above.
In our next articles we will tell you how much TDS is considered good for health and how low mineral water can act as poison for you. 

Onion Juice and Hair Fall Treatment

99% of hair loss treatment don't work at all. Hair loss treatment is a complete industry working side-by-side with medical industry. This industry is worth 4 billion dollar. It is a large amount and growing continuously. Stress level is increasing day by day and  nutrition level is decreasing which is causing more hair fall and thus more demand for treatment. Different people have different reasons for hair fall ranging from heredity to some particular skin disease. But fun fact is that commercial advertisements offer the same remedy for all of them without diagnosing the problem. It is the reason that 99% of the treatment don't work at all and people spend more and more money on different products with the hope of getting their hair back.

There is a myth popular among the bald that hair once lost can't get back, however the remaining hairs can be saved with correct treatment. This myth made millions of people around the world go for hair transplant which has its own risks. Such myth can only give profit to hair transplant industry. The truth is that if the hair loss is due to lack of some particular nutrient then availability of that nutrient can make those hair grow again. If it is due to some skin disease the treatment of that disease can help you in getting your hair back.

What causes hair loss ?
The factors listed below are the major reason behind hair loss.

  • Heredity
  • Hormones
  • Stress
  • Poor diet/missing nutrients
  • Chemical hair styling services
  • Certain medications
  • Surgery or high temperature

Most of the people suffer hair loss due to a combination of these factors. Most common of them is stress. When stress combines with lack of nutrients then hair fall occurs at a high pace.

While doing research for the hair fall treatment we found an interesting fact that some people use onion juice to treat it. The usage is onion juice is still under research but we found some interesting facts worth sharing.

Onion Juice and Hair Fall Treatment

  • Sulphur is a main nutrient in Onion, which plays a major role in production of keratin, a protein found in hair.
  • Onion Juice can check the scalp infections (if any) and also promotes hair growth.
  • Methylsulfonylmethane is a form of sulphur which is highly absorbable and found abundantly in Onion.
  • Onion juice can be used with allopathic medication.
  • Onion juice on scalp can also fight with lice and dandruff as onion is a natural antiseptic and antibiotic.

How to apply Onion Juice on Scalp

Extract the juice of onion by using a juicer, mixer or grinder. Apply it thrice a week for 20-40 minutes on the scalp before taking a bath. If you find the smell of onion a little irritating then you may mix honey and powdered fenugreek seed and keep it overnight before applying on scalp. Olive oil can also be mixed in it before application.
Note: Aspirin,  NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and beta blockers can increase sensitivity to onions. So if you are using such medication then consult your physician.

Those who oppose the usage of Onion Juice to treat hair fall have got following points.

  • Onions can be quite caustic to the skin.
  • Side effects may include redness and itching of skin.

Final thought: Using onion juice to treat hair fall is usually safe if you are not allergic to onion. But the actual result is under research. There is no harm in treating yourself by using this low cost treatment. After all it is safe and affordable. Even if there is a little chance to get your hair back using a few kilograms of onions then it is better to wait before spending a fortune on hair transplant.

Does body hair tell something about your health !

People of different ethnicity have different amount of body hair. An average adult male body have 5 million hair follicles, out of them one million are on scalp. The color and thickness of hair on scalp and body changes as we age. This change is an indication of your overall health. Some changes such as graying of hair is normal as we age. But some changes indicate lack of some nutrients or some underlying medical condition. Here some facts about your hair will make you look again at them.

We will start with some fun facts about our hairs. Most of you will be amazed to know them. These facts will also make you understand the importance of hairs for human body.

  • Hair is the fastest growing tissue of human body.
  • Hair cells in the inner ear convert sound wave into electrical signals to send them to brain.
  • In a life time the nose hair can grow up to 6 feet (2m) .
  • The body hair stop growing in length after reaching certain length while the hair on scalp continue to grow.
  • A single human hair can support up to 100g of weight.
  • An average human shed 50 to 100 strands of hair on each day.
  • Beard is the fastest growing hair on human body. It can grow up to 30 feet in a lifetime.
  • Some researches found that higher amount of body hair means more intelligence.
  • In women the sense of beauty and self esteem is found connected to their hair.
  • Hair color is used by 11% men and 75% women in America.
  • Shaving does not increase the thickness or hardness of hair, as some people believe.
  • Goosebumps in humans is an ancestral property which made them look bigger in size when they get scared of something. The only difference is that now we have shorter body hair, which makes us incapable to look bigger.

Facts for better Hair Health

  • Sulphur is the third most necessary mineral for body after Calcium and Phosphorus. Sulphur is necessary for our hair. Its deficiency can cause brittle hair. The protein keratin is made by body by using sulphur in our diet. Dietary sulphur can save your hair and make them strong.
  • Hair can also stop growing as a result of lack of blood circulation. So if you keep your weight / fat / cholesterol in check then you may have better hair.

  • Rough or dry hair can result due to lack of lack of thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).
  • Too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) can also cause early graying of hair.
  • Iron deficiency can also lead to hair loss.

Body Hair and IQ are connected

Dr Aikarakudy Alias, a psychiatrist, researched on relation between a hairy body and intelligence for past 22 years and concluded that people with more body hairs are comparatively of higher intelligence. A similar study done in Kerala, India concluded the same, where hairy people were in higher proportion among the doctors and engineers while in less proportion among the labor class. Those who have more hair on back as well have comparatively higher IQ. Garry Kasparov and Charles Darwin were most famous hairy men of higher intelligence. But that does not mean that people with less or no body hair will have low IQ. Albert Einstein had no body hair.

The above information must have increased your knowledge about body hairs including the hair on your scalp. The present condition your hairs tell a lot about the nutrients that you might be lacking. Feel proud of your hairs even if they are on your back and do comment in the comments section on what you feel about body hairs.

Your Feet and overall Health are heavily interconnected !

Usually people take care of their whole body ranging from hairs on their head to nails of their toe, but most of us never look under the feet, especially the sole, which is responsible for bearing all the workload throughout the day. Health issues such as back pain that comes with age is often misunderstood as an age related issue while most of the times it occurs due to negligence of feet. Most of us don't even try to wash the sole properly while taking a bath. This negligence often lead to some diseases as we grow. Here will try to put some light on your sole and make you look at them.

Why are our feet so important ?

Our feet bear our weight for most of the day. Even a slight problem in your feet can make you feel paralyzed and incompetent to do anything in proper way. Health of our feet impact our overall health. Our feet not only helps us in burning calories to remain healthy but also supports our whole body structure. Fun fact is that such an important organ is farthest from our heart, so it needs extra care. Till we reach our 30s the heart remains powerful enough to take care of foot. As we grow we not only need to take care of heart but our feet as well. Acupressure is a healing science that tell us how much our feet is connected to our whole being. There are various points in our foot that deals with different parts of body and pressing them can heal several medical conditions.

Some facts about feet health

  • Choose your footwear wisely. It should have ample space for your toe. Heel should never be too high as it can affect your spinal chord and cause back problems as well.
  • Moisture in feet cause serious infections in your feet. So wash them regularly and dry them properly. Moisture due to sweating can also harm them so a good footwear with enough space for air and high quality cotton socks can help you in that.
  • Proper cleaning of your feet is also necessary as it not only removes the dirt and dead skin but also saves you from getting cracks in feet.
  • Choose your footwear wisely. Different footwear should be used for different activities. You can't use a slipper to run on a track. A correct footwear not only makes it comfortable for the activity but also saves your feet from excess pressure and risk injury.
  • Nicotine in Cigarette can decrease blood circulation in your skin by 70%, which is very harmful for your feet. 
  • High sugar content in your diet can harm your feet by causing tissue inflammation. Refined grains and trans fat in junk food also encourages inflammation. Diabetes or high blood sugar can also harm you, so diabetic people need to take extra care of their feet and diet.
  • More weight means more burden on your feet. Try to keep your weight in check by having healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • Peripheral Artery Diseases caused due to buildup of plaque or cholesterol in arteries reduces the blood flow in feet and leads to lack of nutrition for your feet. So take care of your fat / cholesterol level in a timely manner and make the necessary corrections by adjusting your diet and physical activity level.
  • If you use to have cold feet and losing hair on your toes then it is better to get your feet examined.
  • If you use to have heel pain in the morning the it might be due to strain in muscles which may be due to tight shoes, flip flops or some worn out footwear.

Diabetes and feet care

  • Neuropathy occurs in 70% of diabetic people which is responsible for lack of feeling / sensation in your feet or hand due to damage in nerves. It makes it harder to feel the sores and cracks on your feet. Keeping yourself away from diabetes can save you from this condition.
  • Diabetic people should use their elbow to check the temperature of water before taking a bath or going inside a pool, as sometimes the nerve damage makes their hand and feet unable to feel the temperature.
  • Diabetic people should always wear some comfortable foot wear, even inside the house as it saves them from any minor cuts that they can't usually feel.

Next time you go to buy a pair of shoes, keep in your mind to give the best to your feet as they are responsible for your whole being. Don't take your feet as granted. They will lead you for all of your remaining life.

Decide the sex of your upcoming pregnancy yourself ?

Sex determination of fetus is crime in various countries and should not be encouraged. It can help in creating an imbalance in sex ratio that naturally occurs. But what we are going to tell here comes far behind the range of sex determination. Some old knowledgeable persons of  old civilizations provided some ways to get child of the desired sex. Not even that some of them also provided the knowledge to get the desired qualities in them. We don't have any research findings to support their findings but still they are worth reading. Some people may believe them while some may not.

  • Some people claim that Ayurveda has remedy to get child of preferred gender. If the pair indulge in the act after the 4th day of menstrual cycle and before 16th day of menstrual cycle then chances of fertilization are more. The day of successful intercourse decides the sex of fetus. Impregnation on even days of menstrual cycle results in boy while on odd days results in girl. The quality and characteristics of the boy or girl becomes better if they are conceived on final days of cycle (i.e 15th or 16th day).
  • One old Sanskrit text Sarvodaya says that if women is inhaling and exhaling through right nostril at the time of intercourse then it results in female child, while the opposite results in male child.
  • According to Aristotle, if the egg cell and the sperm are from the right ovary of woman and right testicle of man then male child will be produced. If the respective things are from left the female child will be produced. While writing this article i am thinking, "what if egg and sperm are from opposite directions ?". Aristotle knows.

It is good to have faith in your religion and sculptures but if believing something can create and imbalance in nature then it is a stupidity to do so. Nature has not provided us with the ability to decide the gender of fetus due to some reason. Being god can sometimes create bigger problems. If you indulge yourself in judging the gender then most probably you will ruin your love life. Health of the upcoming baby should be the first priority of parents not the gender.

Note: We don't support the knowledge provided above because it can create imbalance in sex ratio. One more reason is there to not support it, it is the impractical nature of the implementation of these techniques. Some methods are really hard to implement for both men and women, especially when they are in mood to make babies. It is really hard to decide through which nostril you are going to breathe at that particular time. Hardest thing in the above described method is to know from which direction the egg cell or sperm is coming.
We have not researched if the information provided above is really a part some ancient texts or it is just a hoax spreading on internet. So it is better not to take these information seriously. Our motive is to let you know what type of information is available out there to misguide those who really want a baby of desired gender.
