Scientific Islam-Physiology Contributions of Islam to Modern Science! The Qur’aan was revealed 600 years before the Muslim scientist Ibn Nafees described the circulation of the blood and 1,000 years before William Harwey brought this understanding to the Western world. Roughly thirteen centuries before it was known what happens in the intestines to ensure that organs are nourished by the process of digestive absorption, a verse in the Qur’aan described the source of the constituents of milk, in conformity with these notions. To understand the Qur’aanic verse concerning the above concepts, it is important to know that chemical reactions occur in the intestines and that, from there, substances extracted from food pass into the blood stream via a complex sys- “And in cattle (too) ye Have an “And verily in cattle there is A tem ;sometimes by way of the instructive example: From lesson for you.

It needs a tropical climate that is dry. The papaya leaf contains beta-carotene, calcium, carpaine, fats, flavonols, niacin, papain, tannins, & vit C.The benefits of Papaya leaves are numerous; Papaya leaves can cure acne, thus used as acne medicine.

It increases appetite, and this effect is primarily observed in children. It is a fact that there is no cure for dengue fever and therefore it is a much feared fatal illness. However, recently there has been a lot written about papaya leaves that seem to prove itself as a cure to dengue fever. Only two spoonfuls of raw papaya leaves juice, taken once a day can help dengue patients increase their platelet count. Papain is so powerful that Papaya Leaves have been wrapped around meats to tenderize them.

Cardiac irregularities, malnutrition, hypertension organ failure mental illnesses are the additional gifts for drug addicts . tion includes no medications but the treatment of co occurring disorders such as depression and post traumatic stress disorder may require certain medications. Family involvement is an integral part of an effective drug treatment in long term sobriety. The individual’s loved ones support is very necessary to promote good health. The problem is that all this rehabilitation institutes are running under virtually No cooperation from the government. ill we see the news tickers of so called CRACKDOWN over drug suppliers? How long will it take to practically enforce the writ of the Government over those Political forcers running this mafia? How long will we see the Medical societies arranging conferences in Five Star hotels stressing the Drug Rehab, but showing practically no influence on the results followed?

THE POWER OF HUMAN TOUCH (PAIN MANAGEMENT & MASSAGE THERAPY)

W

hen a child falls and hurts himself and his mother rubs him the child forgets pain similarly when an athlete is indulged in competitive sports and undergoes message therapy afterwards he feels relaxed and muscular pains are managed . his is just not a dogma but in fact it is a scientific phenomenon.Pain management with the help of massage therapy is because of the following factors ; Vasodilation - Deep tissue massage often leads to a sense of relief and peace, because it causes vasodilation in the skin and muscles by stimulating sympathetic receptors. This increased blood supply helps remove the accumulated lactate and other metabolites that act on the nerve endings in muscles as experienced after exercise causing muscle soreness and pain ndorphins Release - Deeper tissue massage may cause the release of endorphins (the bodies natural pain killing opiates) leading to the sense of wellbeing, similar to acupuncture which often leads to endorphin

release, and since deep tissue massage works over many points in the acupuncture meridians, and finger pressure is often used over such points, it seems likely that such massage also elicits this release. nhibition of Pain Mechanism It is obvious that massage stimulates the sensory proprioceptive and fine and crude touch nerve fibers of the skin and underlying tissues, and that these messages pass along the afferent fibers to the spinal chord, along with pain nerve fibers from nociceceptors through posterior sensory root. Here the fine touch and proprioceptive fibres cause lateral inhibition to sharpen their signals as well as send collateral neurons to the pain fibers through connector neurons thus causing inhibition of this pain mechanism . assage bombards the skin and subcutaneous tissues with stimuli, and this not only produces a local effect but may exert either a stimulating or soothing effect on the body as a whole.

MATTER OF MOMENTOUSNESS Our region is victimized by extreme climate change. Flood of 2010 caused the loss of 10billion$, 2000 people demised, 15 million displaced and one fifth of our land went under the water, the misery from last year`s flood was not over that we were struck by one more last year causing further loss. 20 out of 22 districts of Sindh were affected and loss was just unthinkable, this situation is now changed in to a vicious cycle. We are going through drastic climate changes and we have to equip ourselves to combat with this catastrophe. Scientists are virtually certain that 5 degree temperature would increase in the mid of this century and 10 till the end of this century as a result of global warming .Pakistan is amongst the top countries which are vulnerable of these climate changes. Government should take some serious action on this issue of climate change and national climate change policy should be followed properly but, the role of community is more important if we want to save our land and our next

generation, electronic media should highlight this momentousness disastrous problem as much as they can, but they are busy in talk shows. Environment friendly awareness campaigns should be launched as soon as possible in schools, colleges, universities and industries to save our land from global warming. We cannot stop the climate change, but we can reduce its vulnerability, mitigate risks and build resilience. Society can play an important role in decreasing global warming by energy conversation and decreasing pollution. A mega mass communication campaign is required to aware the masses of Pakistan about this climate change as very few peo-

ple are aware of the problem they are going through; our next generations are liable of extinction if we took this problem carelessly. Internationally KYOTO PROTOCOL should be followed by all developed countries and help developing countries in reducing global warming. My country is on verge of ruthless and merciless disasters, I want to tell people of Pakistan that this is the biggest problem we are facing in this century. People like me who want to save their land, are ready to volunteer themselves in public awareness campaigns to save our land and people. Please! For God sake all stake holders, community and government should work on it, so that humanity can be saved from TERMINATION.

HYPERTENSION & EXERCISE THERAPY Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a complex disorder with no simple exclusive cause and a risk factor for many cardiovascular disorders in the form of myocardial infarction and stroke. Structural modification of vessels, abnormal regulation of the vasomotor tone, enhanced vasoconstriction, reduced vasodilatation and micro-vascular networks all seem to contribute to the disease. It has been shown to be associated with a reduced micro-vascular network in various tissues including skeletal muscle. We can manage and prevent hypertension by making some positive changes in our life style. It has been proven that aerobic exercises improve the oxidative capacity and oxygen diffusion in skeletal muscles by normalizing the endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients suffering from hypertension. Losing weight, quit smoking and intake of DASH diet (rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and reduced in red meat, fats, and sweets) are the other non- pharmacological strategies to deal with hypertension. If you are suffering from hypertension don’t hesitate to consult your physiotherapist immediately for cardiopulmonary exercise testing and exercise prescription for hypertension and weight loss.

1 LEUKEMIA DRUG KILLS CANCER CELL, SPARES THE IMMUNITY

2

Leukemic cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (L-CTCL) is a leukemia arising from Tcells, a type of white blood cell. This cancer can involve the skin and other organs, and patients often die within three years. The study suggests that low-dose Campath (alemtuzumab) not only treats patients with L-CTCL but does so without increasing their risk of infections. Campath only kills T-cells that enter the bloodstream, but it spares a newly discovered population of T-cells that live long-term in the tissues.

Common infections in children pose a high risk of ischemic stroke. In a review of 2.5 million children, the researchers identified 126 childhood ischemic stroke cases and then randomly selected 378 age-matched controls from the remaining children without stroke. They discovered that 29 percent of those who suffered a stroke had a medical encounter for infection in the two days preceding the stroke versus one percent of controls during the same dates.

HIGH ANIMAL FAT DIET LINKED TO GESTATIONAL DIABETES

According to researchers at the National Institutes of Health and Harvard University. Women whose diets were high in total fat or other kinds of fats -- but not in animal fat or cholesterol -- did not have an increased risk. Moreover, the increased risk for gestational diabetes seen with animal fat and cholesterol appeared to be independent of other, dietary and nondietary, risk factors for gestational diabetes.

CHILDHOOD INFECTIONS - A RISK OF ISCHAEMIC STROKE

PROTEIN - CAUSING PARKINSON DISEASE IDENTIFIED

A protein called RGS4 normally helps regulate the activity of neurons in the striatum -- the part of the brain that controls movement. But in experimental models of Parkinson's disease, RGS4 does the opposite by actually contributing to problems with motor control. The result is a deterioration of movement and motor coordination, which are the hallmark symptoms of Parkinson's. More than 10 million people suffer from Parkinson's worldwide, including the boxer Muhammad Ali and the actor Michael J. Fox.
