“Overall, more than 10% of the world population is obese”
(World health organization- WHO)

Superfluous food and the ease with which we can attain all the things we need has made physical activity almost extinct. It’s safe to say that obesity is the gift of modern era; a gift that can potentially be deadly. For instance, according to the same report almost 2.8 million adults die each year of obesity! If you’re suffering from this disease of modern era, this last point should give ample reason for you to try get rid of obesity. This book discusses how dangerous obesity can be and gives you a complete plan regarding how you can get rid of this curse of the modern era.
Is obesity as evil as it sounds? Yes, it is. Not only it makes you look unfit but also makes you susceptible to a number of health hazards like high blood pressure, metabolic disorders, diabetes, stroke, joint complications, cancer and heart attack.
It’s ironic that how the hearts and souls of people tremble when they hear of diseases like cancer, heart attack and stroke. Obesity; who cares about it? I love food, I live for eating, and eating is my life. People try to hide this foe behind these statements. Why wait for a heart attack or a stroke? Why not try to nip the evil in its bud? I feel no hesitation in saying that obesity is the mother of hundreds of other diseases. It’s not a disease in itself but is the risk factor of several other maladies.
By now you would be wondering; “if obesity is so dangerous then it should take a magical pill to get rid of it”. That magical pill is in your hands. A healthy lifestyle is the only way to get rid of this condition. Who needs a doctor when you can cure a condition all by yourself? The major portion of this book focuses on describing the dietary habits, different exercise, herbal alternatives and home remedies to burn extra fat. But sometimes, things do get serious and you need a doctor. The last few pages describe the medicinal and surgical remedies of obesity. Read more…

If you are an artist in search for further knowledge about drawing to enhance your skills then this is not the book for you. This book is for the individuals who want to be an artist but know nothing about drawing yet.

I know how it feels when you want to illustrate an idea but you just don’t know how to start. And when you finally grabbed the confidence to mark that paper but then it turned out really terrible that you don’t want to show it to anyone.

This instructional manual is for making that ‘two circles’ cat of yours into something more pleasing and distinguishable, for enhancing that sheep which looks like a cloud with a face, for turning your stick figures into cartoons, and more.

Learn the very basics of drawing easily by following this step-by-step tutorial and realize that drawing is something that is fun to do, and not something that becomes a cause of frustration.

To give you a hint of what this book is all about, look at this short list of tasks that you will learn to properly initiate after reading and following the tutorial.

Tasks:

-Start with a loose sketch.

You need to define the first look of your drawing by sketching it first so it could serve as a pattern for your permanent outlines (defined outlines). If the lay-out of your primary sketch is too far-off from the final piece that you are after, the latter parts are going to be difficult.

-Define permanent outlines.

Trace your sketch to clearly define the contour shape (primary shape) of your drawing, and clean it up by erasing the sketch markings.

-Show/illustrate some texture

Texture contour provides a better portrayal of the shape’s dimension values. The details such as scales, fur or any print and texture should curve and flow with the contour shape of your subject and adjust with it accordingly.

-Draw the necessary details.

Use a variety of line thickness and line weight (given pressure on the pencil) to show the right balance to the whole drawing, use thick lines for the parts that should visually dominate the drawing, and less visible and thin lines for the secondary details and parts that merely describe the object/subject’s form.

Knowing more about Aloe Vera

As a child, growing up in wild woody jungles and in mountain regions, where one had to continuously fight against the encroachment of the wild woods trying to take over one’s gardens, I noticed that some plants grew only in our gardens, while others grew only in the woods.
One such garden plant was the Aloe Vera, which was a must on every gardener’s gardening list. It was always grown in a sunny area, outside the kitchen, and watered once every four or five days, or when one remembered to water it. This green plant was not very attractive to someone who liked flowers around them in their strictly regimented and well disciplined borders and beds. But it was extremely attractive to all those who wanted to know all about the medicinal qualities of this bitter tasting mucilaginous succulent. Also, it did not need lots of fussing to grow. Once it was planted, it flourished as an everlasting perennial
Aloe Vera has been used for millenniums in ancient medicine recipes and remedies, down the ages and in different ancient civilizations. There was a time when it was supposed to grow over large areas in the wild in North Africa, Morocco and other regions around the Sahara desert region, which was once covered with green forests. But as the now desert area began to dry, this plant started dying out in the wild.
Every ancient civilization’s medical teachers would tell their students, “Do not underestimate the power of the humble Aloe Vera, my son, because this plant under your kitchen window is going to keep you and your family healthy. Your children shall never suffer from any grave disease internally or externally, your wife shall remain everlastingly beautiful and you shall live a happy and prosperous life, as long as you know all about the benefits of this magical plant.” No wonder, it was considered to be a wonder plant by ancient herbalists and medicine men.
Women knew all about its skin rejuvenating quantities millenniums ago, and I am sure that any ancient Egyptian queen would have told her tire woman – are you making up a skin beautifying remedy for me, with asses milk and spices and attar of roses? Add some Aloe Vera to it so that I may look like a goddess for mankind to worship.” Cleopatra did that and so did Nefertiti.

This book is going to tell you all about the magic of aloe Vera, its beneficial health and beauty properties, the use of Aloe Vera in ancient medicine, and also how you can use it in cooking. Read more…

Introduction
In this book of our Magic Series, the author is proud to bring pomegranates to the readers’ notice. Since ancient times, pomegranates have been an integral part of ancient medicine and natural remedies. Pomegranates have been called the Poor man’s doctor, because since ancient times, man has been curing himself with spices, fruits, herbs and nuts.
That is why people of the 21st century are coming back to nature and looking for natural remedies, which are going to cure them of diseases and ailments. Chemical-based drugs may heal you very well on a short-term basis, but they are going to have an everlasting long-term effect on your body. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables as well as herbs are going to heal your body naturally, while making sure that you do not suffer from any sort of side effects. This is the reason why the magic series are going to tell you all about the wonderful medical and beauty enhancing benefits of different herbs, spices, fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Ancient medical treatises in Egypt and Persia consider pomegranates to be a powerhouse of good health. That is because they thought that this fruit could cure people of many ills. The Latin name for pomegranate is Punica granatum. One wonders whether the Romans fought the Punic wars with Carthage, to rule over lands where they could get pomegranates, because after all, everybody knows that the Roman emperors ransomed Kings for black pepper, exotic fruit and other spices.
According to ancient treatises, the pomegranate had the power to purify your blood, which would mean that your skin would not suffer from any sort of skin ailments, including pimples or boils. Also, when I was talking about pomegranates, with an ancient naturopath, he told me that sages of ancient time used to use pomegranate seeds to enhance brain power and vision, get rid of odema, renew the mineral resources needed for keeping our body working properly and reduce urinary inconsistency.
In fact, he handed me some pomegranate seeds, mixed up with rock salt, to make me feel hungry. [I had lost my appetite, because of illness and also due to stress.] He said that that activated the stomach and made it do its job properly and naturally. It worked. So if you have a continuous access to pomegranates, lucky, lucky you!
The pomegranate peels are going to keep you beautiful. The pomegranate seeds’ juice is going to keep you healthy, both externally and internally. Read more…

Introduction
Nobody really knows who first discovered yogurt. Butter is supposed to have been discovered millenniums ago, when camel’s milk was placed in animal skin hides while being transported from one place to another by Arab or Turkish nomads. The ambulatory movement of the camel walking across the desert seem to have a churning effect on the hides, and in the evening, when the milk was taken out of the sack, two new products were discovered. Butter and buttermilk.
This possibly apocryphal serendipity is on par with the supposed discovery of wine. Millenniums ago, a Greek slave was suffering from toothache, and that was so painful that she found an earthenware pitcher full of fermenting grape juice left by some other careless slave. All those bubbles made her think that it was poison, and she would rather drink that, than suffer the pain of a toothache. So she did drink of the juice of the grape and fell asleep. And the miracle of wine was discovered to gladden the hearts of generations. No wonder the Greeks had a God Bacchus – also known as Dionysus and the Roman equivalent Liber to whom you liberally paid libations, before you drank wine – for wine.
But nobody has told us how yogurt was discovered and by whom. But in ancient Indian medicine texts, the mixture of honey with yogurt eaten every day is considered to be the food of the gods to keep you everlastingly healthy.
Along with yogurt, the side products of bacterially fermented milk included buttermilk and butter. Every house proud woman made sure that she kept some yogurt back from yesterday’s batch to prepare today’s batch of yogurt. These cultures have enzymes and bacteria, which are extremely beneficial for your digestive system.
The enzymes produce lactic acid. Lactic acid is what is going to ferment the lukewarm milk. It is also what makes your yogurt sour if you leave it in a warm place after the yogurt has been made. So the moment you see the yogurt set, put it in a cool place. Read more…

Introduction
Somebody asked me once why I did not become a doctor and then join the Defense Services as a Doctor like the majority of my family members? Here was I with an easily obtained Degree in Natural Sciences and all my knowledge – garnered during a peripatetic childhood and youth-about natural remedies, ancient medicine and natural healing processes.
The medical or the engineering fields were the only options left for good students, during the time I was at University. And I give them my stock answer, which I consider logical and sensible, “If I become a doctor, I will be giving my patients chemical-based medicine, and I will just be curing their bodies. On the other hand, if I stick to my habit of learning more about natural remedies and ancient remedies, I will be curing their bodies, as well as fighting the disease from the root onwards.”
My grandmother had learned about natural remedies and beauty recipes from her grandmother, and this wisdom was passed down the ages, from mother to daughter. For millenniums, every mother in every ancient civilization taught her daughters the rudimentary art of survival and staying beautiful and youthful with fruits, vegetables, spices, and herbs. This is now considered to be alternative medicine by doctors in the West. But this was the medicine with which people survived through centuries and stayed healthy.
So if you believe in natural remedies, and naturopathic treatments, the cures are right around you. But many of us would rather go to a doctor and get some expensive medicine. The side effect of that medicine is going to be that some other part of our system is going to get affected. After that we go back to the doctor again and get some medicine to treat that side effect. That medicine produces another side effect. This is going to be your way of living for the rest of your life. However, if you eat natural medicines, you are never going to suffer from any sort of side effects. That is because natural products are more tuned to your body’s systems and natural needs, than chemical drugs are.
Say no to chemical drugs as far as possible
For all those who have read Lloyd C Douglas’ Magnificent Obsession and liked it, Mr. Douglas had some more words spoken by another of his popular characters, in “Disputed Passage”. That doctor said something on the lines of – it is not our duty to just cure the body. We have to cure the mind and spirit too and heal them”, much to the disgust of doctor Tubby Forrester, who considered every human to be a machine which needed to be put right, and where did emotions and spirit and soul come into this curing process?
At the end of the story, Dr. Forrester had to accept the fact that human beings had to be treated by doctors who understood their psychological, mental, spiritual and emotional makeup. Unfortunately, this is not being done today, because doctors are harried, and have to see a number of patients till the end of a day. Read more…

Introduction
Man is a social being and that is the reason why his life is going to be filled up with social occasions celebrating good times with other like-minded social beings. So naturally if you are fortunate enough to have a full social life with parties, celebrations, and family get-togethers throughout the year, you would want to look just that bit extra scintillating and fascinating, would you not?

Now she knows how to look good all the time. So can you!
Yes, it is said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but do you know that some of the most “beautiful” women in history were plain looking. But their vivid personality made them really fascinating, and that is why people forgot that they did not have perfect classical Grecian features and the immediate allure of a Venus – Aphrodite. Nevertheless, when you get 1 months prior notice with an unspoken hint of “make sure that you Be There with bells on” and also “here is hoping that the gift that you bring will be substantial,” you know that you will need to be looking your best. And if you happen to be the bride, that means that you are going to be the cynosure of all eyes. That puts on that extra burden of you outshining all the other lovelies who have spent the whole month leisurely getting ready for just this occasion, while you rushed around getting things ready for the wedding.
Anyway, this invitation is quite enough for all the women recipients to immediately make an appointment with their favorite beauty parlors, or start to plaster and paste their faces with chemical cosmetics in the hope that they will look exquisitely beautiful on D-Day and also be the envy of all the other women around them.
It is not necessary to spend so many dollars upon expensive chemical cosmetics when the ingredients are available in right there in your kitchen or easily available in your favorite store.It takes just 6 days for you to know that you are looking your best, that your complexion is glowing and clean and that you are feeling good.
So this six-day regime is going to tone you up from top to toe, and all you have to do is sit back and smiled graciously at the appreciative looks and comments on D-Day. Read more..
