We came across this extra ordinary brand name – DRANC and wondered its origin. We learnt that DRANC is the abbreviation of Chennai’s new promise- a cosmetology clinic with promising future whose flag bearer is a woman , Dr. Anitha. Well, DRANC expands to Dr. Anitha’s Clinical Cosmetology. Our team hunts down Dr. Anita for an interesting interview that throws light of many new beauty treatments and lifestyle courses. Here are the highlights from the conversation with Dr. Anitha. Can you brief us about your journey to become passionate clinical cosmetologist? My interest towards Beauty is the key factor where it all started. Clinical Cosmetologist is not just taking care of the external appearance of the person, it is becoming healthier internally. I realised the small healthier cha
Globally, billions still live without safely managed sanitation and hygiene services, which are most critical for the protection of human health in this pandemic era. One in three people worldwide still lacks basic handwashing facilities with soap and water at home, leaving the most vulnerable to the unseen virus. Advancing transboundary water cooperation plays a crucial role in preventing conflicts and supporting wider regional integration, peace, and sustainable development. Sanitation is at the core of sustainable development, sanitation and hygiene services are desperately needed to prevent the virus from spreading. The world is not on track to achieve Goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goal, 2030. Urgent action is needed to overcome this global crisis, as it is affecting all cou...
In recent years, many doctors, scientists, and researchers have been confronted with the ills of the century, brain diseases, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Dementias, etc. They are all anxiously inclined to a probably fruitless search, the discovery of a drug, a therapy that works for everything, a substance that is the panacea for these ills. Little is known, however, about the role of changes in nutrition and lifestyle and how much these can increase diseases whose cause is often not yet known. Today neurological diseases and mental disorders can be traced back to biological and pathogenetic processes of brain function, a sort of “neuro-inflammation”.Investigating the main dietary changes that took place in our "era", the Anthropocene, we see that sugars, cereals, carbohydrates, in ge
Ketones are certainly a less harmful alternative to the sugars that dominate the sports supplement market, but there are some clarifications that I would like to make in this regard. "In nature, nothing makes sense except in the light of evolution". In reality, there are numerous core habits that man, like any animal, plant but also bacterial or fungal species, must respect to stay healthy, simply because every reaction, every enzyme, every structure is made for a specific condition, generally different from what we could define as “the new normal”, which is not so normal. On the other hand, a dog cannot stay indoors all day and even those of us who thought that man was a sedentary species probably changed their minds during the lockdown. There are things that are good for a part
With the world’s deadliest Covid-19 outbreak, Italy was hard-hit by the pandemic in February 2020. North Italy evolved to be the epicenter of the pandemic and the world witnessed Army trucks that transported victims of the virus for cremation. Italy came to a stand-still throughout the spring 2020 with extreme restrictive country-wide measures imposed by the Italian government emphasizing everyone to ‘stay at home/ resta a casa’ which gained international praise. As a result of this, Italy was hailed as a model to the whole world as it battled this deadly virus. One year later, as the world continues to battle with the deadly virus - with the second wave, third wave and so on. It shows how unprepared and vulnerable we are individually and collectively. The Italian politics on the
The BBC recently reported on the vigor with which India is rolling out its vaccines, whilst reminding us of India’s high rate of infections. “India has confirmed more than 11 million cases and over 157,000 deaths. The country has recorded the second-highest number of Covid-19 infections in the world after the United States” we are informed. However this is a partial picture. For while India has had many infections, the rate of infection compares favorably with large swathes of the rest of the world. Perhaps even more importantly, as this map shows India has consistently maintained some of the lowest rates of death found anywhere until very recently. Most surprisingly India’s highest spike in death rates last September came plummeting down in October last year at precisely the time w

In the words of Denis Waitley, ‘time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.’ It is fair to say that the greatest miracle we witness everyday is the ability our human body to self-heal. Therefore we ought to take finest care of our body because it is the only place we all ‘live’ in [in its literal sense!]. Mr. Vitantonio Cav. Colucci, BIN Marketing Specialist from Italy opined that ‘health is bona fide wealth and if good health is deficient strength becomes fictional as a result wisdom does not manifest itself.’ Therefore it is vital to pay keen attention to good health and Vitantonio opined that ‘life expectancy amplifies by soaring boundaries with a balanced diet’ and believes that ketogenic diet makes him feel healthy and

It is by a feel of astonishment that I read news / articles on mental health of men during the lockdown days. My astonishment was nothing else than that the word “ mental health “ unveiled itself from the stigma of being a hushed topic that was ever before. It was not only the news or articles, many memes and social media posts started appearing, citing the seriousness of the issue apart from the fact that many governments had started serious plans to tackle the issue of mental health by giving online counselling , creating help desks etc .,while fighting the biggest of epidemics. I stand by the government for their action. Of course, mental health of its subjects should be given priority and has to be tackled with utmost seriousness. No arguments. But what I am pointing out here is
