The recent Jivamukti sexual abuse allegations have reignited a long-running conversation on power dynamics, teacher-student relationships, and cult-like status within the yoga community. Each time news breaks of another guru abusing their power, the yogasphere erupts in further controversy, but as much talk and (sometimes therapeutic) conversation there is, are we really making progress when […]

Gone are the days when powerlifting is reserved only for men and men alone, as women nowadays have come to embrace powerlifting as not just a way to gain super strength, but also help promote lean mass and firm muscles.
Many people may not be aware about the stresses and pressures that puts a powerlifter to the test. When we say ‘power’ it means really that, strength and determination. The demands are intense and the not many can excel at it.
Women, on the other hand, can benefit a lot from powerlifting. A lot of women doing it said it helps boost their confidence, gives them a sense of purpose and helps give them build strength of character as well.
It is more than just mental conditioning, rather it is a psychological behavior that lets them feel they are in control with their being that helps improve their self-esteem and is a good exercise to help them stay fit.
A lot of women also believe that they find it to be challenging, most especially when they feel they need to do more from that each weight level they are working on. It helps boost their sense of accomplishment every time they hurdle a challenge for every weight level.
Today’s powerlifting community promotes a very supportive environment for powerlifters, including women, where they find a mechanism where they could get help, updates and information.
Women today are more independent and are immersing themselves on ways to stay fit and healthy like men and powerlifting allows them to challenge their capabilities on strength and endurance.
It also keeps them heart and bone healthy, since powerlifting enhances the body’s absorption of nutrients that are essential for the body, especially the heart and bones.
Powerlifitng has also been proven effective in weight loss and is a good workout for women, who have the less capacity for weight loss than men. It has something to do with their metabolism that makes them lose weight longer and more difficult than men.
Powerlifting also allows women to feel the sense of competition, as many powerlifting events and contests now include women. This allows them to prove their competitive edge with the rest of the women competitors.

The quest to promote better health is now more prominent with findings that the battle to fight the bulge may go deep into the cellular level as the microbiome linked to a healthier body may be the key to finding out ways to further improve methods to fight obesity.
This was recently revealed after published in the journal Science, may have succeeded in breaking through the mystery of the human microbiome and how it plays a role in health and could someday hold the promise of curbing the global problem of obesity.
The researchers conducted the tests by drawing out bacteria from the intestinal tract of almost 4000 combined participants from across the Netherlands and Belgium, leading to evidence that lifestyle habits and diet significantly affect bacterial development and growth, thus, have its profound impact on health.
Stool samples were gathered from the participants through a uniform process of home-sampling and freezing which were then analyzed in order to determine how intestinal microbes interact with human health and general behaviour.
Although the researchers pointed out that up until this point they are still unable to provide a specific definition of a healthy microbiome, however, the studies indeed confirmed the hypothesis that the presence of a diverse microbiome population is somewhat correlated with improved health.
One of the findings also showed that there is a link, albeit small, of a less diverse microbiome population and a high body mass index (BMI), which measures if a person is overweight or not.
Also, the study found a positive link of a diverse microbiome and a diet high in vegetables and fruits.
Some medical experts, however, believe that additional tests needs to be conducted to validate these findings, as they pointed out that the results of these studies just scratched the surface of studies into the microbiome.
They pointed out that it still was not able to determine the link between microbiome density among persons and there is still no definite value that could serve as baseline data to support the findings.
In the United States, more than two thirds of adults are considered overweight, while 35.7 percent are categorized as obese, which means that a total of 3 in every 4 men are on the level of obese and overweight.

My first trip to Israel yields numerous culinary highlights, but it’s wandering through the markets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, each one bristling with distinctly charming character, which leaves me most captivated. And it is Carmel Market, or Shuk Ha-Carmel, with its sensorial barrage of shouts for straight-from-the-oven rugelach, wafting scents of garlic, and richly hued vegetables on display, I find especially soulful.

After a week of making a concerted effort to reduce the food packaging that came into — and went out of — my home, I realized there was plenty of low-hanging fruit to pluck: having my groceries double-bagged when I was too distracted (or just plain slow) to fish my nylon market bag out of my purse; the extra utensils, napkins, and condiments that came along with my takeout; the countless small plastic bags I used to transport items from the bulk bins to my canisters at home. All of these were items I could do without easily and with minimal inconvenience.
