ANALYSIS OF LIPID, LIPOPROTEINS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSES TO YOGIC PRACTICES IN MIDDLE AGED MEN AND WOMEN OF DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS By Dr. I. Devi Vara Prasad
Paperback: $8.84
Prints in 3-5 business days
Healthy men and women altogether constitutes wealthy mankind. The body of a woman is definitely very different from the body of a man as it has more duties to perform and greater weight to sustain.... More > In fact, nature has given the woman's body a greater purpose to fulfill. A woman has to become a mother, and for that reason, nature has designed a special system for her. Men have more chances of going out, playing sports and games, and taking a morning or evening walk. Most women are completely tied to their household duties and remain in the same environment all the time. They do not get as much time or as many opportunities for exercise as men do. Moreover, the system of a man is less complicated than the system of a woman. Good health means that all organs of the body are working efficiently. The important proverb is, ‘Health is wealth’, ‘if health is lost everything is lost’, and is realized more in its absence than by its presence. Middle age is not a time of life it is a state of mind.< Less

In A. D. 1300 in Poland, more precisely in the region of Kashubia, was coined the term "nachzeher" to define the female vampire, or "chewing the shroud" or "devourer of the... More > night." The Nachzehrer would be a special kind of vampire who lives in a constant state of numbness in his grave, without understanding what is happening around and just like a child, chewing spasmodically his dress. Martin Böhm wrote in 1601:"We have seen in times of the plague how dead people especially women - who have died of the plague make smacking noises in their graves, like a pig that is eating, and that while this smacking is going on the plague becomes much worse, usually in the same family, and people die one after the other." The theologian Philip Rohr's in 1679, in his presentation at the University of Leipzig, "Historico-Dissertatio Philosophica de Mastication Mortuorum" also known as "chewing Mortuorum", describes in detail the behavior of these dead.< Less
