"ATITHI DEVO BHAVA" (The Guest Is God)

VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES IN INDIA India is a country of a kaleidoscope of cultures with umpteen variations in food, clothing, language, music, festivals and religious beliefs. The country is home to four of the world’s biggest religions and each individual has the right to practice their own rites and rituals.   The variations in climatic condition, land structure and political set-up have resulted in considerable differences in dress, food habit and social customs and practices.  With religion comes the spirit of celebration. Major festivals are celebrated across the country with equal fervor while several others are celebrated locally with great enthusiasm. In short, the variations of India’s cultural diversity are strung together with the string of peace and harmony. India is indeed an ‘embodiment of unity in diversity’. Keeping the spirit of  ‘ATITHI DEVO BHAVA’ (the guest is god)  alive, India has always provided opportunities for people across the world to volunteer in

UNDERSTANDING THE CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK

Corona viruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as  Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV)  and  Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) . It is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.  PREVENTIONS 1.       Regular hand washing : Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not visibly dirty. 2.       Covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing: When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands

Let’s WASH Coronavirus By Hand Washing !

Let’s WASH Coronavirus By Hand Washing ! Corona virus is nothing new.  It has been with us for a long time. Corona virus can affect both animals and humans. It is important to keep in mind that most corona viral infections are mild. In the last two decades, there were two serious corona virus infections–severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) which both had elevated death rates. Corona Virus: What To Do So, what can you do? Wearing a mask will  not  help protect you from becoming ill with any viral infection—corona virus included. I would check that off the list. First, it is important to maintain optimal levels of nutrients, particularly vitamins A, C, and D.

There is no bacteria, virus, parasite or fungus that is known to be resistant to iodine. Most people have suboptimal vitami

UNDERSTANDING RESPIRATORY AND URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (RTIs and UTIs)

  INTRODUCTION:   Respiratory tract infections can cause sinuses, throat airways or lungs. It is an infection that affects normal breathing. It can affect ones  upper respiratory system , which starts at the  sinuses  and ends at the vocal chords, or just the  lower respiratory system , which starts at the vocal chords and ends at the lungs. The immune systems of children and older adults are more prone to being affected by viruses. Children are especially at risk because of their constant contact with other kids who could be virus carriers. Children often don’t wash their hands regularly. They are also more likely to rub their eyes and put their fingers in their mouths, resulting in the spread of viruses. People with heart disease or other lung problems are more likely to contract an acute respiratory infection. Anyone whose immune system might be weakened by another disease is at risk. Smokers also are at high risk and have more trouble recovering. SYMPTOMS: 1.       Cong
