After cancer treatment children may have trouble sleeping or suffer from fatigue and anxiety. But Casey Hooke, a nurse, has a theory about how to help them.

Starting next year, Hooke will invite 48 children who have finished cancer treatment to take part in a six-week yoga class as part of a research study at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

“It is known that yoga helps adult cancer survivors with sleep and fatigue problems, why don’t we try that with children?” Hooke said.

She’s sure that yoga, with its focus on breathing, stretching and meditation, can help all those areas, as well as with an overall sense of wellness.

Last month, Hooke won a $40,000 grant to expand the study, thanks to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises money for research on children's cancer.

First Tibetan School Celebrated Golden Jubilee This Monday

On the arrival to India in 1959, the main concern of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and government in exile was for the education of Tibetan children. There were about 5,000 children below the age of 16 in 1959. The education of children therefore received top priority in his talk with prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru in 1960. Under the stewardship of Pandit Nehru, a special education scheme was set up for Tibetan children.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed his gratitude to the government of India on the 50th anniversary of the first Tibetan school in exile (Central School for Tibetans, Mussoorie, India).

His Holiness the Dalai Lama said in his message, “Upon our arrival in India in April 1959, Prime Minister Pandit Nehru assured me that the real way to serve the Tibetan cause was to give our children a proper education. He followed up this advice by taking a personal interest in the establishment of separate schools for Tibetans, with the direct support and assistance of the Government of India.”

“When children have the opportunity to receive an education they have the chance not only to improve themselves as individuals but to contribute to the development of society as a whole,” the Tibetan leader added.

If you think homoeopathy doesn’t work in the case of chronic illnesses and genetic disorders, it is time to change your mind because it is slowly evolving to treat them.

The five-day workshop on homoeopathy, jointly organised by the Hahnemannian Education and Research Forum (HERF) and Banaras Homoeopathic Doctor's Association (BHDA) on October, raised the hopes of successful treatment of genetic disorders including the Down's Syndrome with the help of homoeopathy.

According to reports, Praful Vijayakar, a famous homoeopathic expert from Mumbai with specialisation in genetic disorders, has successfully shown the treatment of the Down's Syndrome and other chronic mental disorders, including Schizophrenia, with homoeopathic approach.

“But there are still a lot of things to be done to popularise homoeopathy besides creating awareness among the general public," said Virendra Singh, secretary, BHDA.

Question/Answer for November 18

Q: If everything is pre-decided, then what is the need for karma/ action?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: We cannot live without karma. All is pre-decided for an animal but not for a human. Some things are pre-decided and some are not. If everything was pre-decided, why would we be doing bhajans here? It would be no different than being an animal then. Humans have responsibilities to fulfill and humans take on responsibility. An animal has neither any responsibility nor any demand. Humans have freedom as well as an intellect.

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has addressed the Uttarakhand government to provide him with ‘Z-plus’ security because he fears attacks from his opponents.

"Baba Ramdev has been exposing the intentions of MNCs in the field of health and beverages, launching a tirade against corruption and establishing Indian tradition and culture. So, he has become a target of his opponents," Acharya Balkrishna, a general secretary of Ramdev's Haridwar, said.

Since he also floated a political party 'Bharat Swabhiman Trust' and announced to contest the next general elections, the number of opponents who may harm him have increased, he said.

Donate Your Blood!

Blood can't be manufactured but there are a lot of situations when people need blood transfusions, including surgery, burns and even childbirth. Therefore the only way for hospitals to keep their blood banks full is through volunteer donors. However, fears often hold people back from donating blood.

The doctors want you to consider the following facts if you are reluctant to be a blood donor:

-Giving blood will not make you weak. Most adults have 10 to 12 pints of blood in their bodies. And you donate just one pint.
-If you take medication, it doesn't mean you can't give blood. Many people with hypertension and diabetes can donate blood without a problem.
-It doesn't take very long. The entire process lasts no more than an hour, including paperwork and blood collection.
-You can safely donate blood every 56 days. Your body typically replaces the fluid lost within 24 hours.
-Your blood is never wasted. It is stored and shipped directly to hospitals and clinics around your city or country. They keep it on hand and routinely use it in emergencies.
Remember that the pint you give can save someone's life!
