A California college is now offering doctorate degrees in alternative medicine in a first-of-its-kind program.

California College of Ayurveda President Marc Halpern is a pioneer in alternative medicine, and he’s thrilled that after months of applications, there’s now a major step forward for the profession.

“This is the first time a doctor of ayurvedic program has been offered and one that’s accredited and recognized in the state of California,” he said.

Halpern says ayurvedic medicine is nothing new or new age, and it’s a traditional form of medicine in India where doctors are fully licensed.

The bark of the tree can actually be effective in treating urinary tract infections like trichomonias, vaginitis and also pelvic inflammatory infections. Trichomonias is a common sexually transmitted infection and causes symptoms like vaginal itching, pain during intercourse and urination and abdominal pain. ‘Banyan tree bark is administered to patients in the form of capsules or even loose extracts. Other than this, bark decoctions can also be used as a vaginal douche, but that isn’t as effective as taking it in the capsule form,’ says Dr Palep.

In fact, a form of Ayurvedic treatment known as Panchavakal, uses barks of five trees from the Ficus family including fig tree, peepal, albizia lebbeck, plaksha and banyan tree for treating these disorders.

Unable to understand why the baby is crying? This app can help you

An app that can differentiate between a variety of crying sounds made by babies has been developed by Taiwanese researchers.

The Infant Cries Translator was developed at the National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin and can differentiate between four separate crying sounds by recording the sounds of babies and comparing them against a vast database.

Over a two year period researchers collected around 200,000 crying sounds from approximately 100 new-born babies, and uploaded them to an online database. Analysis of the frequency of individual screams among these helped researchers, led by Chang Chuan-yu and Dr Chen Si-da, distinguish subtle differences in acoustics.

The resulting app shows analysis of a baby's cries on the user's phone within 15 seconds. Researchers say the app has an accuracy of 92 percent for infants under two weeks old, helping inform parents when their child is hungry, sleepy, in pain, or has a wet diaper. The analysis becomes less accurate the older the baby is.[msn-news]
