The conference will revisit all the happenings of the year 2012 and will have lectures of prominent doctors of the society. A copy of the tentative programme is enclosed herewith.

Ego clash over LOC

India is a country known for its cultural values and Vedic knowledge. Very clearly Indian mythology teaches that one should learn to control one’s ego. In mythology, snake represents duality of mind and Naag is depicted pro-ego.

Naag is seen in the neck of Lord Shiva, protecting Lord Vishnu when he is sleeping and protecting Lord Krishna when he was born while traveling in stormy, rainy journey.

Everywhere when Naag is represented in mythology, it is with its hood (fun) directed inward and not outwards. It indicates that one should learn to control ones ego.

It should be ego-in and not ego-out. Ego in mythology and Vedic sciences has been known to destroy and ruin families, societies and countries.

One should not hurt the ego of someone else but always kill one’s egoistic behavior. One can prevent becoming egoistic by keeping ego directed towards soul and not towards outer world.

One can be egoistic about one’s oneness with the God or consciousness not egoistic about their mind and intellect.

Following are the situations if you hurt somebody’s ego, it can end up into serious retaliation which may end up with reactions of rage and destruction:

  1. Blaming somebody of financial embezzlement (Saala Chor Hai)
  2. Taunting somebody of racism (woh kaala hai woh gora hai)
  3. Telling a female that she is old (woh dhal gayi hai ya budi ho gayi hai)
  4. Telling somebody that he is impotent (saala namard hai)
  5. Telling somebody that he is no competent in his profession (saala nalayak hai)
  6. Telling somebody that he is stupid (saala ullu ka patha hai)

In the present controversy around the Line of Control between India and Pakistan, it has now become a major issue related to ego. The spiritual answer is very simple. The heads of the armies of both the countries should meet on the Line of Control and try to sort the matter out. Whosoever is at fault should say sorry and come out of it. But will the Kalyugi politics allow them to do so as Indo-Pak bad relationship always keep the politicians alive with their bread and butter.

If it is does not happen, I will not be surprised that either Indo-Pak war will erupt or both of them will have to withdraw under pressure of US, UN of UK.

Remember suppressed emotions are also bad. If both the countries suppress their emotions under pressure of any third country, these suppressed emotions naturally will come out with vengeance

    Constipation Update

What is the follow–up approach to a patient with acute fecal impaction?

Following management of an acute impaction, it is important to identify and eliminate potential causes of constipation. This includes discontinuing medications that cause or exacerbate constipation. For the institutionalized adult, improving availability of toileting and/or providing assistance is necessary to prevent constipation.

What are the contraindications to surgery in aortic stenosis?

With certain high risk patient exceptions, valve replacement should not be performed for isolated severe AS in asymptomatic patients. The threshold for surgery may be lower in such "high–risk" patients with critical valve areas of <0.75 cm2 than in those with valve areas of <1.0 cm2 but =0.75.

Most patient end up in receiving no aspirin

More than half of cardiovascular patients who could benefit from aspirin for secondary prevention were not prescribed the drug.

Aspirin or other antiplatelet drugs were prescribed for secondary prevention in only 47% of outpatient visits in 2007-2008, a rate "virtually unchanged from the 2005-2006 period," according to Anand K. Parekh, MD, MPH, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and colleagues. Also in 2007-2008, general medicine or primary care physicians prescribed antiplatelet medications to cardiovascular patients only 35% of the time, a decrease from 38% in 2005-2006, they wrote in a perspective article published in the Jan. 17 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Sugar is nobody's sweetheart any more

The intake of free sugars or sugar-sweetened beverages is a determinant of body weight according to a systematic review and meta-analysis conducted for the World Health Organization.

The findings are intended to support new WHO guidelines on dietary intake of sugar, which currently urge that it be kept to less than 10% of total energy.

High BPA Linked to Kidney Damage

Children with high levels of exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) are at increased risk for kidney damage with resultant low-grade albuminuria according to research published in Kidney International.

Children in the highest quartile of BPA exposure (=4.3 ng/mL) had a significant 0.91 mg/g higher albumin-to-creatinine ratio than children in the lowest quartile of exposure (<1.1 ng/mL) after adjusting for insulin resistance, elevated cholesterol, and various environmental and sociodemographic risk factors.

    Infertility Update (Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

What is the procedure of evaluating the intended parents and the gestational surrogate?

The intended parents should undergo a complete medical history and physical examination. Semen analysis should be obtained for the male partner, and an evaluation of ovarian function should be preformed for the female partner. The surrogate should undergo a complete medical history including a detailed obstetric history, lifestyle history, and physical examination. The surrogate should have an evaluation of her uterine cavity with hysterosalpingogram, sonohysterogram, or hysteroscopy. Infectious disease screening for syphilis, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Cytomegalovirus, HIV, and Hepatitis B and C should be performed on the intended parents and the surrogate.

    An Inspirational Story

"God Bless You" Speech

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety–three students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt. Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and moms freely brushed away tears.

This class would not pray during the commencements; not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling.

They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.

The speeches were nice, but they were routine; until the final speech received a standing ovation. A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then he delivered his speech –– a resounding sneeze! The rest of the students rose immediately to their feet, and in unison they said, "God bless you."

The audience exploded into applause. The graduating class found a unique way to invoke God’s blessing on their future –– with or without the court’s approval.

   Laugh a While (Dr GM Singh)

Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement centre were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: "Slim, I’m 83 years old now and I’m just full of aches and pains. I know you’re about my age. How do you feel?"
Slim says, "I feel just like a newborn baby."
"Really? Like a newborn baby!?"
"Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants."

 
    Medicolegal Update

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Additional Prof, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

What is rape trauma syndrome?

  • Rape trauma syndrome describes that rape survivors go through fear experienced during a sexual assault particularly violent sexual assault. Each victim has their own experience; but there are common characteristics the victims possess. These characteristics are the direct result of the fear inherent in sexual assault.
  • The acute phase lasts from a few days to a few weeks after an assault. It is a response to a complete disruption of one’s life and the humiliating experience of being sexually assaulted. The acute phase produces as many responses as there are survivors. Some survivors may cry, others may laugh, and still others may be completely silent. It is important that there is no "wrong" way to cope with the immediate after effects of sexual trauma. During the acute phase, survivors may feel disbelief or in some way frozen. It has also been described as if survivors "left their body," forever being unable to reconnect with the woman or man who was raped. Survivors may feel humiliated, confused, dirty, ashamed, or in some way at fault for the assault; especially in the case where the assailant was an acquaintance. Physical concerns may arise during the acute phase as well. These concerns may be the direct result of the assault or fear of the possible physical ramifications of the assault i.e. pregnancy or STDs.
  • Following the acute phase is the Reorganization Phase where the survivor attempts to reorganize her life. This phase invites a myriad of emotions such as fear, anxiety, denial, and most of all the loss of security. The shattering of security as well as trust is inherent in sexual assault. This loss of the fundamental need for security wreaks havoc on the survivor’s life. The feeling of being unsafe looms over the survivor causing a heightened state of anxiety, difficulty with intimate relationships, and overcautious such as constantly checking one’s surroundings.
  • Chronic reactions to sexual assault include the inability to find peace at the level of soul. Sexual assault can change the individual forever as well as the world as they know it. The end result is a constant state of turmoil in thought process. At times, the survivor may not even recognize what is happening within. Sexual assault causes the body to be an unfriendly environment leading the survivor to at times feel dirty and ashamed. These feelings cause the individual to disconnect from their body entirely. Without a connection to their body, the survivor is unable to listen to internal states which assist her in navigating through the world. This contributes to a feeling inherent in many survivors, the feeling of being "lost." The patient needs close monitoring/treatment by doctor and counselors.

Exercise impact on the knee

Different exercises produce different impacts on the knee joints. The best and safest exercises causing minimum impact on the knee for patients post knee replacement or knee arthritis are walking, biking, hiking, riding an exercise bike, riding an elliptical trainer and walking on the treadmill. In sports one can play doubles tennis and not singles. One can also participate in downhill or cross-country skiing, said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India & National Vice President Elect IMA.

The maximum stress-producing exercises are jogging and golf swings.

Impact

  • Biking generates the least force, producing impact of about 1.3 times the person's body weight.
  • Treadmill walking was next best, producing forces of 2.05 times the body weight.
  • Walking on level ground generated forces of 2.6 times the body weight.
  • A game of Tennis produces forces of 3.1 to 3.8 times the body weight; serving produces the highest impact.
  • Jogging produced forces of 4.3 times body weight.
  • Golf swings produces forces of 4.5 times body weight on the forward knee and 3.2 times body weight in the opposite knee.

Ref. Do Not Believe In Claims

Most of the claims which come in television and newspapers may not be based on the facts. Whenever somebody comes and tells me that he has cure for HIV AIDS, I only ask him a question, “Did you get Noble prize so far?” or “Have you patented your claim?” If the answer is no, I do not believe in that claim.

Claims are usually observation based and not fact based. Everyday you see in the newspaper quoting studies, for example, alcohol is good for health. Studies are not reliable as they are based on observations. Unless they are double blind cross over studies or meta analysis they should be digested with a pinch of salt.

Remember that observations and judgments are two separate things. Judgment usually involves facts and observations only what one has seen from his own experience.

My Dear KK,

Usually I respect your opinion, but I'll like to raise a debate on you’re a/m comments:

  1. All great phenomenons commence with a simple human observation, viz., the falling of an apple as observed by Newton; Archimedes' Eureka, Galileo's observations, etc. None of them were considered for a Nobel Prize nor did any one of them patent their observation! It was the follow-up of their observation by open minded non-acclaimed unconventional thinkers (I call them scientists) to work on these observations that became the foundation of what is science or ‘scientific’ today!!
  2. All of the practices used in ayurveda, siddha, Unani and homeopathy systems, or the science of yoga as well as acupuncture are the products of ‘simple observations’ over the millennia and have withstood the test of time. None of them were subjected to the methods of modern scrutiny nor were they ever patented - till some one thought of making business out of some of them recently.
  3. You are more aware than anybody - just a matter to introspect - about the fate of many drugs launched with a bang in your own life time after all the so called “double blind cross over studies / meta analysis" and the "scientific evidence" created by their promoters that they were awarded the status of ‘gold standard’ in practice by the profession in recent past. Isn't revealing that many of these were products of mini-skirt 'statistics' and even ‘bribery’ to well known professionals. The truth had to get finally exposed, but only after the harm they caused! You are yourself in the fore-front of breaking down the well known pharma-medical nexus!! Don't the drug companies work on the marketing principle of 3Cs: Convince, Confuse, else Corrupt!!!
  4. On the contrary, many of the successful drugs are a consequence of accidental discoveries rather than innovative inventions!
  5. In my opinion promoting the concept of the so called 'Evidence based Medicine' is itself quite akin to 'Evidence based Judgments' dished out by honourable courts all over the world after a very laborious process by very upright judiciary!!
  6. At the same time, all the traditional systems of health are based on the fact of "reproducibility” – which is itself considered the hallmark of a "scientific" phenomenon. Further they have gained “credibility” for unblemished record of serving the humanity, over time immemorial, beyond even comprehension of modern technology.
  7. We are wasting precious time and causing tremendous harm to the public, we promise to serve, in the blind pursuit of these slogans engineered by mafias for their self propulsion at the cost of human health. Why else the cost of healthcare is at its all time high at a time when morbidity due to all known diseases continues to rise, in spite of great advances claimed in modern medicine??
  8. We may seriously introspect whether there is any inverse relationship between these technology based advances in modern medicine with credibility of the profession in public eye?
  9. Does the profession care why 'spiritual' well-being, as recommended by World Health Assembly way back in 1986, has not been added as the fourth dimension of health to physical, mental & social well being? For its own sake it needs to understand its benefits - Earlier the Better - that there is “No Life without Spirit”, and there can be “No Positive Health without Spiritual Well-Being”.
  10. Is the world 'spiritual' so unscientific, and that's why not acceptable by health authorities even after a lapse of > 25 years? To my understanding the term spiritual stands for what manages the spirit - the very factor of life - its healing, health and wellness. No Spirit - No Life - No Healing - No Immunity - No Health!!
  11. You are an exponent of mythology & spirituality, and pioneer in teaching its scientific basis. I implore upon you to tap and apply this wisdom, beyond public talking, for true wellness & health of our patients and the nation.
  12. Current medical practice treats the human being as a machine with specialists dedicated to respective components of the body. All medical interventions, at most, only give symptomatic (? false) relief to the patients without ever thinking of the root cause of their problems, viz., plumb a coronary as if the remaining vascular tree is fine and independent of the pathophysiology! Best of such palliation breaks down sooner or later, for the patient to finally succumb to the problem.
  13. But, the various traditional systems of health aim to promote overall health & wellness of each individual, prevent sickness and effect cure by removal of the underlying cause of sickness, leading to better rehabilitation and higher ‘quality of life’. They, therefore, offer a huge complementary scope to markedly improve the role of modern medicine in healthcare.
  14. Our National Health Policy promulgates integration of all the officially recognised systems of health, viz., Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy besides Acupuncture & Hypnotherapy as recognised modalities for all inclusive comprehensive holistic care of health. But, there is serious deficiency of expertise in enabling this ‘synergy’.
  15. To avoid any unknown drug interactions due to medicines of different systems, we should complement practice of modern medicine with various harmless drug-free modalities of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Counseling and Hypnotherapy. In my experience this model of health care tremendously enhances efficacy of patient management in all diseases at all the stages!
  16. We need to establish global evidence of the benefits of this all inclusive holistic practice of medicine through “multicentric double blind cross over studies/meta analysis" and develop appropriate scientific protocols. I call upon you to extend your leadership, if you agree to this concept, to promote “Health for All” in our country.

Dr. R. K. Tuli
