Yoga: The truth behind the trend

Yoga is now a lifestyle trend across the globe. The curiosity of people has been sparked and they can now see the impact of this everyday practice on their physical fitness, their mental health and their emotional balance. This has piqued their interest in deepening their knowledge and broadening their experiences. Yoga is more than physical postures and breathing techniques, it is a holistically healthy approach to everyday living, the method to living life to perfection, to be the best version of ourselves and ultimately be one with the universe. To bask in the happiness of a physically fit and mentally peaceful life is the most attractive quality that draws people to the birthplace of Yoga.

Ayurveda: the scripture for Life

Ayurveda teaches us everything we need to know about living our lives in a manner that brings us the most health and happiness. Every human body is defined by the five composite elements namely, Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Space. Ayurveda is the science of manipulating these elements within our bodies through various external practices to bring about a balance. Much like the saying goes, no plant grows on this land that is not of some benefit to the health of humankind. Ayurveda can account for every single plant, fruit, flower or herb that benefits the body to not just bring about everyday health but to even cure a myriad of illnesses. Such rejuvenating experiences where the body and mind are cleansed are opportunities that people truly need and greatly look forward to.

The pursuit to understand our place in the grand scheme of things, as more than a speck in the ever-expanding universe is what drives us to wander. The more one explores the outside world, the more you get in touch with the world within. Truly, the path to the inner self is the road less travelled. This search for answers is a spiritual and divine experience. This deep craving is what draws people to this mystic land where the first greeting is. (IANS/AD)

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies, which help the immune system recognize and fight viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria and other causes of infectious disease. The gene -- FAM72A -- facilitates production of high-quality antibodies by enabling the effect of an enzyme called AID (for Activation-Induced Deaminase), the researchers showed.

Immunologists have known for two decades that AID is essential to produce antibodies capable of clearing infections, but the full mechanism of its effect has remained unknown. "Our findings answer the long-standing question of how AID does its work," said Alberto Martin, a professor of immunology at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine. "FAM72A helps AID to promote mutations in antibody genes that are essential for the development of effective antibodies," he added.
