The muscular system aids in movement, blood flow, and other bodily functions. The muscular system is made of three different types of muscles. (1) Skeletal muscles that are connected to bone and aid in voluntary movement. (2) Smooth muscles that are found inside organs and help to move substances through organs. (3) Cardiac muscles that are found in the heart and help pump blood.

Muscle disorders include a large group of conditions which fall under the umbrella terms of muscular dystrophy (a genetic disorder), neuromuscular conditions, and neuromuscular disorders. These conditions can affect skeletal muscles (and may overlap with skeletal issues), organs such as the heart and lungs (and may overlap with cardiovascular or respiratory issues), as well as muscles in the arms and legs. These disorders may cause weakness, loss of motor function (cerebral palsy), or paralysis even in the presence of an intact nervous system. Other conditions include: myasthenia gravis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), rhabdomyolysis, mitochondrial myopathies, fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, bursitis tendinitis, myositis, dermatomyositis, and polymyositis (inflammation and progressive weakening of the skeletal muscles), rotator cuff injury, myofascial pain, muscle cramps, and sprains or strains.

Ayurveda identifies the particular dosha imbalance and corrects it with treatment and remedies.

    The book club will be discussing The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri.

    Are you interested in reading and discussing novels, plays, and poems by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is a fun opportunity to indulge in some great works by women writers.

    We will begin each discussion with a little background history and tidbits on each female writer. I’ll ask a few questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. My hope is that together we gain a little more insight into these books (and perhaps the authors as well).

    Some of these books you may know well. Some may be books you always meant to read and never got around to! It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you are passionate about discussing books and would like to build up your repertoire of works by women, this might be the perfect place to start. To quote Mary Shelley: “The beginning is always today.”

    January: Jhumpa Lahiri “The Namesake” 2003
