6.During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain awakens.

7. Not Everybody Dreams in Color
A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full color.

Today, only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to color media.

8.Dream interpretations dates back to 3000-4000 B.C. were they were documented in clay tablets.It is said that people in primal societies were unable to distinguish between the dream world and reality. They not only saw the dream world as an extension of reality, but the dream realm was a more powerful world.


Studies show that we all have the tendency to daydream an average of 70-120 minutes a day. Day dreaming is classified as a level of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness. It occurs during our waking hours when we let our imagination carry us away. As our minds begin to wander and our level of awareness decreases, we lose ourselves in our imagined scenario and fantasy. Click here for a more in depth look at daydreams.


A nightmare is a disturbing dream that causes the dreamer to wake up feeling anxious and frightened. Nightmares may be a response to real life trauma and situations. These type of nightmares fall under a special category called Post-traumatic stress nightmare (PSN). Nightmares may also occur because we have ignored or refused to accept a particular life situation. Research shows that most people who have regular nightmares have had a family history of psychiatric problems, bad drug experiences, people who have contemplated suicide, and/or rocky relationships. Nightmares are an indication of a fear that needs to be acknowledged and confronted. It is a way for our subconscious to make up take notice. "Pay attention!"

Tulsi can help keep swine flu away: Ayurvedic experts
Lucknow, May 27: Wonder herb Tulsi can not only keep the dreaded swine flu
at bay but also help in fast recovery of an afflicted person, Ayurvedic
practitioners claim.
"The anti-flu property of Tulsi has been discovered by medical experts
across the world quite recently. Tulsi improves the body's overall defence
mechanism including its ability to fight viral diseases. It was
successfully used in combating Japanese Encephalitis and the same theory
applies to swine flu," Dr U K Tiwari, a herbal medicine practitioner says.

Apart from acting as a preventive medicine in case of swine flu, Tulsi can
help the patient recover faster.

"Even when a person has already contracted swine flu, Tulsi can help in
speeding up the recovery process and also help in strengthening the immune
system of the body," he claims.

"Tulsi can control swine flu and it should be taken in fresh form. Juice or
paste of at least 20-25 medium sized leaves should be consumed twice a day
on an empty stomach."

of inviting swine flu.
