Migraine is a debilitating condition characterized by moderate to severe headaches, and nausea, about 3 times more common in women than in men.

The typical migraine headache is unilateral pain (affecting one half of the head) and pulsating in nature, lasting from 4 to 72 hours; symptoms include nausea, vomiting, photophobia (increased sensitivity to light), phonophobia (increased sensitivity to sound), and is aggravated by routine activity. Approximately one-third of people who suffer from migraine headaches perceive an aura—unusual visual, olfactory, or other sensory experiences that are a sign that the migraine will soon occur.

Q.How to control Migraine Pain following naturopathy ways?

Ketki:Migraine pain can be due to various factors. it can be hormonal changes that induce such changes especially prior to periods or one of the accompanying symptoms for severe PMS ( premenstrual syndrome). The other factors we need to consider for migraine pain can be due to skeletal issues or misalignment , which then requires some adjustment. It can be dehydration, food allergies, constipation , lack of sleep. So a Naturopath would look at various factors and rule them out before deciding the treatment approach through diet, supplements and herbs.

Passionate lady at 73 years of age -Vera Waters

Age is no bar to keep on working in today’s times- Unless you are passionate!



I was never interested to know about Madam Vera Waters until I met her. She is a 73 years old lady from Hong Kong who is so much into her work that will put shame to any youngster who always complains about their workload and other things in life. Nobody can guess her age as she has maintained herself so well. You will never find a wrinkle on her hands, she carries herself with such a charm that is unmatchable. Though she gives all credit to Nuskin for her younger looks as she swears by NuSkin Products. Its her own positive attitude towards life which counts more.

Vera Waters is a 5 million dollar circle member elite in NuSkin-an Enterprises, a leading direct-selling company that distributes premium quality products and services. It’s not about the company I want to emphasize but it’s about only her. Madam Waters has basket full of achievement through her life. She has worked as a manager at Standard Chartered, she was the first lady in Hong Kong to set up a Beauty and Charm school, she has received Asia Pacific Life Time Achievement award, she was on the list of 100 outstanding women entrepreneurs of China, and now at 73 years of age she is as much passionate about her work in NuSkin as any newcomer who wants to bring change in others life.

Success is by choice, she proclaims. She is a super positive woman who believes in the quote that “There is no shame in justifiable failure. There is the shame only in fear of failure.” When somebody asked her that at what age she will love to retire, she answered with a smile “I will love dying while working”. How passionate she is for her work that reflects in the way she works for Nuskin. She is working for last 19 years for NuSkin.

Vera Waters is an inspiration to womenfolk in today’s times. She is setting up an example that it doesn’t matter what work you are doing, but how much you love doing what you are doing, that fills you with love for life and for the world too.So love your work and love the world around!

Children Parenting their Kids !

Its gives a strange feeling to even write  what I felt after seeing the photographs of boy Alfie holding his baby daughter in his arm!

No use of blasting the European culture of upbringing kids, or effect of modernisation on kids, or effect of access of different media on kids. It sounds cliche if we discuss it. Things are changing fast around but never realized that fast. Boy who is 12 year old involves himself with a girl, next door, sleeps with her and fathers a baby! He trys to portray himself to be a responsible father and says he will look after his child with full responsibility.

What to comment? That boy was living in such an environment that he was aware about the act of involving himself with a girl, and then getting her pregnant. Isn’t it alarming? Being a mother I am in a shock! How I will safe my kids childhood? How I will protect my child from all negativities of the media?

How I will safeguard his innocence? I am full of insecurity. But no choice I have to live with it….

Its really time to get alert. We as parents have to take certain steps to safeguard our kids childhood innocence. I am in a dilemma how to go about it! Should I remove all the access to media from my home. Should I stop bringing magazines, newspapers. Should I keep my kid at home only. Its tough to decide.

I am really confused. I can just trust my God and the way I am bringing up my kid. Morals and values definitely help in giving kids the right direction!
