Pâté bread

– All purpose flour
– Water
– Dry baking yeast
– Black seeds, fennel seeds, anise seeds, dried grapes, etc.

– Add the baking yeast (about 1/2 tea spoon for 300 gm flour) to the flour and, then, add water little by little and treat your dough meanwhile. The desired dough consistency is midway between tough and soft.
– Cover the dough and leave it to ferment for 1-3 hours.
– After the desired dough fermentation, treat the dough by your hand to make one large ball.
– Take handful of desired size from the dough and minimally shape it so that its surface would accommodate little of the tasty additions you like: olive, fennel seeds, etc.
– Do not use oil or flour while you cut your dough into small pieces.
– Put your pâté bread in the clean vessel as such.
– Cover the bread doughs, and leave them to rest for a few minutes.
– Preheat your oven to 250-280 C.
– Put the dough bread into the oven, and watch carefully.
The pâté bread is lighter and more tasty 🙂 Enjoy!

Sweet cake with orange juice

– 3 whole eggs
– About 2/3 cup sugar
– 4/5 cup vegetable (corn) oil
– 1 cup all purpose flour
– About 1/2 gm vanilla powder
– About 1 gm baking powder
– Juice of 1 orange

– In a suitable pot add the sugar, oil and eggs together and mix well.
– Add the vanilla to the mixture, and mix again.
– Add the flour and the baking powder to the contents in the pot and mix well. Use an electric mixer to have a good mixing, if possible.
– Add the orange juice, and mix again very well.
– Pour the contents into the oven vessel after covering its floor gently with few drops of vegetable oil.
– Preheat the oven to 180 C, and then put vessel with the raw cake into the oven. Watch carefully until the cake is nicely cooked and smells good.
This time we had 3 eggs (more than we did in the first try) and only one cup of flour (compared to 2 cups we had before), you will notice the cake this time is much lighter: a semi-sponge cake! Good appetite 🙂



Tank dynamic model of disease – an interview –

Interviewer: Welcome to our program Mr. physician21.
Physician21: Thank you, Sir.
Interviewer: In your opinion, why is there a need for a model of disease?
Physician21: Well. There are indeed many views of disease that came up with the understanding of the disease process. In my new model I try to make use of all these views in one working model.
Interviewer: Great, then, let’s get closer to your model!
Physician21: The model considers the environmental variables, the physical elements including food and drinks, the emotional experiences and the personality.
Interviewer: Yes. Those 4 components are known to contribute to human health state. So, what is new in your model?
Physician21: The model assumes that everybody has a residual disease state at any point of time, and the disease is just an outbreak point of an already existing and ongoing process. The point is that one should take care to set that residual disease state as low as possible, so that such outbreaks would occur very infrequently.
Interviewer: What examples would you tell us in this respect?
Physician21: For example, the negative feelings such as hate and jealous, these are very inappropriate for one’s health. In the Islamic rituals, it is recommended for a sick person to give out money as alms or charity, and it is believed that this would directly or indirectly help cure the sick. This act can be understood in my model such that the act of giving money to the needy would creat a positive feeling or positive energy for the sick and the surrounding persons that would boost their readiness for cure and resolution.
Interviewer: So, your model emphasizes that health state comes from within the person, and encourages everybody to take care of naturally given health elements in those 4 discrete categories: environment, matter, emotions and personality.
Physician21: Yes, true. The process is very interesting and intricate. Everybody owns the keys for good health, just on realizing their proper use. The way one walks, talks, and behaves, all that speak either for or against the health state. So, one should be careful.
Interviewer: So, the progression of a disease state is largely controllable especially at its early beginning.
Physician21: Yes, of course.
Interviewer: You talked about positive and negative energy. is it the energy ‘halo’ of the body?
Physician21: Yes. According to physics matter can ultimately change to energy and both are interchangeable. Pictures, actions, meanings, thoughts, colors, sounds, clothes, objects and food can all take part in outshaping of the energy environment and feelings and, thus, health of the person.
Interviewer: Good. What about the biological and physio-chemical agents as disease causes in your model?
Physician21: These are called extraneous factors that may cause harm or not according to the basal disease or readiness of the person. So, they are not in the center of disease process in our model.
Interviewer: Thank you very much, Mr. physician21 for this great information.
Physician21: You are welcome, Sir. Thank you very much.
