Introduction of Kolobara-Han (Isabey’s HAN in Sarajevo)

In the middle of 17th century, Evliya Çelebi mentions 23 caravansarays in Sarajevo. In 1878 there were 50 caravansarays in Sarajevo. There were Hans which had their distinctive names. Among them is „Kolobara“ in Sarajevo, Čardagija in Mostar,…etc. In towns a Han has often been built next to hammams ( a public bath) and also their are some folk poems which mention these hans.

Starting from 1462 until the first decades of 17th century, there wasn’t almost any renown endowment (waqf) without a han. Hans were bulit either in Baščaršija square (old part of Sarajevo) or in its immediate vicinity. There were cases where it was built on the outskirts of the town (e.g. Cicin Han in Sarajevo). Among those hans in Baščaršija, there is Isa Bey’s Han i.e. Kolobara, which was built just before 1462 as it can be seen from the endowment of The Isa Bey Ishakovic (who was Bosnian orderer and Bosnian sanjak-bey from 1464-1470). He has built a bridge over the river Miljacka (in Sarajevo), a public bathroom, traveller’s inn, a few mills on Miljacka, a palace or a saray which Sarajevo was named after. To maintaim his endowment he ordered from the royal estates the following: All the mills, which are located under one roof and one mezra behind these mills located in the mentioned village, a bathroom and water for its needs and the remaining water from the bathroom and a Han with shops that were built in. In the 18th century, some Sarajevo’s Hans have become  the meeting place of rebellious janichars (infantry), who were than in the final phase of their existence. These hans in the beginning of 19th century have been held by three prominent janichars. Kolobara was held by Pino Bajraktar, Novi Han wa sheld by Mustafa (later called Đul’s Han) and the other Novi Han by Ibrahim-aga Morić (later called Morića Han).

When some unfit decree arrived from Istanbul or a decree from Travnik, agas from Sarajevo used to gather in Kolobara Han in order to deliberate against the sultan or vizier. It was recorded by a folk poem „Abdurahman pasha cut Sarajevo’s bash’s“. There are these versus:

Pasha asks his ferdzumans

„Who rides on a cormorant?“

It is Pinjo, oh my bajraktar

His coffee is in the middle of Kolobara

When Saray agas want to

When they want to make a Council

They don’t go to mula

They go to Pinjo Bajraktar.“

Caravansarays and hans, as buildings of various construction, have been destroyed by fire and time, but they have been re-built again. Itis oficially known that Kolobara burned in 1697, 1788, 1831, 1842, 1852, 1937, 1992 and 2012. In these fires mostly the upper part of the building has been burned down. In the yard of Kolobara, there was a shadrwan ( a yard ornament that has a purpose of a fountain, in translation means „flowing che of a pool and fountain“), which burned down on the 9th July 1842 along with 2000 other objects in Sarajevo charshija. Probably, water dried from the Isha Bey’s water-supply from Bistrik, which supplied hammam and the other objects. In addition, Kolobara was also supplied from the water-supply in Mošćanica and Hrvatin. Modern water-supply have been constructed, the old fountain in Kolobara have been dissapeared and Kolobara was partially burned on 29th December 1937 at about 8 p.m. and the following year it was totally destroyed.

 

 

Make yourself beautiful with Wa Cosme!

If you want to know the secret as to why Japanese women have beautiful skin and hair, look no further than Wa Cosme!

The term ‘Wa Cosme’ is derived from ‘Wa’, meaning Japanese, and ‘cosmetics’, and is used to describe skin-care products that are made from natural ingredients and use ancient Japanese wisdom. The distinctly Japanese packaging adds to its appeal. Cosmetic brands are growing in popularity in Japan and the hottest one at the moment is “Wa Cosmetics”. It uses natural ingredients that have been used for beauty care in Japan for generations.

For instance, Tsubaki Abura, or camellia oil, has traditionally been used to maintain glossy hair. The oil extracted from the seeds of the camellia retains moisture and can be used not only for hair but also on the skin. Rice bran, the substance created when brown rice is polished, was once used as laundry soap in Japan, but women during the Edo period (early 17th century – mid 19th century) are also said to have scrubbed their face with rice bran-filled bag. Cloth bags filled with rice bran extract are still being sold today because of their moisturizing and whitening effects.

Basic skin care products that use Japanese drinks that have existed for a long time such as soymilk, green tea and sake are also produced by a variety of makers. These drinks contain amino acids, mineral that are considered to be good for health and isoflavone and vitamin C that are said to have good effects on beautiful skin. Japanese researchers that study beauty applied these ingredients to cosmetics. However, those who have allergy have to be careful as they sometimes can cause a reaction with the skin of some people.

Most Wa Cosmetics with which you can feel the tradition of Japan are available for purchase at drugstores, department stores and airports. They are practical souvenirs not only for you but also for your family and friends, making everyone happy.

Preventivna medicina: kako poboljšati cirkulaciju i ugrijati stopala i šake

Zimi nam se često događa, da nakon kratkog boravka napolju, uđemo u toplu prostoriju, a ne osjećamo ni stopala, ni šake. Koliko god da smo toplo obučeni, i u toploj prostoriji, treba nam dosta vremena da se ugrijemo i vratimo u normalu. Riječ je o lošoj cirkulaciji, koja nastaje kada vene i arterije izgube elastičnost, što otežava protok krvi kroz cijelo tijelo. Loša cirkulacija može nastati uslijed nedostatka fizičke aktivnosti, ishrane siromašne vlaknima, visokog nivoa holesterola, pretjerivanja s masnom hranom, pušenja i svakodnevnog stresa.

Simptomi loše cirkulacije su:

-vrtoglavica

-utrnulost

-svrbe(peckaju) nas šake i stopala

-bolovi u nogama pri hodanju

-stalni ili čest umor

Ove simptome ne smije ignorirati, jer mogu dovesti do većih zdravstvenih problema, i čak srčanih i moždanih udara. Da bi se donekle izliječila slaba cirkulacija, potrebno je povećati fizičku aktivnost. Ukoliko ste „kućni tip“ i vani izlazite samo ako morate, cirkualciju ćete poboljšati vježbama istezanja (u kućnoj varijanti), koje će vam oduzeti svega 15-20 minuta dnevno. Nakon što se probudite, lagano izmasirajte svoja stopala i ušne školjke. Nakon masaže, uradite vježbe istezanja (istežite ruke, prvo jednu pa drugu, pa obje, zatim noge), koje će vam poboljšati cirkulaciju i učiniti da mišići tokom zime ostanu u dobrom tonusu.

  1. Rotirajte vrat-glavu okrenite u lijevo, zatim u desno brojeći do 10. Poslije ovoga, vrtite glavu u krug, i vježbu završite spuštajući glavu tako da dotakne prsa.
  2. Vježba prsti-peta-ovaj vježba je odlična kada osjetite bol u nogama, utrnulost i peckanje jer pumpa krv u noge. Sjedite tako da vam koljena budu pod uglom od 90° u odnosu na pod. Podignite prste od poda, držeći pete na podu, zatim ih spustite nazad. Ponovite najmanje 10x.
  3. Istezanje mišića tijela-jutarnjim istezanjem se budite i istovremeno aktivirate svoje mišiće. Uhvatite zglob ispod šake i teglite ruke iznad glave. Ponovite vježbu s drugom rukom. Postavite šake na donji dio leđa i gurajte karlicu naprijed. Iskoračite i spustite se u polu-čučanj. Zatim istežite mišiće nogu. Vrtite šake da razgibate zglobove. Zatim vrtite stopala da zagrijete članke oko nogu.
  4. Kraće šetnje– najbolja vježba za cirkulaciju je hodanje. Mišići nogu se stežu i opuštaju svakim korakom. Na ovaj način se pumpa krv u cijelo tijelo. Hodanjem se snižava krvni pritisak. Počnite sa kratkim šetnjama 2 do 3x sedmično.
  5. Istezanje šake-raširite i istegnite prste na rukama. Potom stisnite šaku u pesnicu i držite tako nekoliko sekundi, pa opet raširite prste. Ova vježba spriječava grčeve i poboljšava cirkulaciju. Ruke opustite pored tijela i kružnim ih pokretima okrećite u ramenima u trajanju od 1 minute.

More ublažava sve tegobe i okrepljuje dušu i tijelo

Koliko je more važno? Odlazak na more, udisanje toplog morskog zraka i bilo koji vid spajanja s morem, produžuje ljudski život i stvara osjećaj blaženstva.

05.08.2017 1734

Blagotvorni utjecaji mora su višestruki. Osim plivanja, ronjenja i svih ostalih aktivnosti u vodi, okrepljujuća je i šetnja i trčanje po pijesku. More je ljekovito, istovremeno djelujući na dušu i tijelo. Ako samo sjedimo na plaži i gledamo u more, istovremeno osjećamo njegovu ljekovitost.

Morska voda je dodatni lijek za naš organizam. Morska voda sadrži mješavinu natrijuma, kalcijuma, kalijuma, magnezijuma, fosfora, željeza i svih minerala koji se nalaze u ljudskoj krvi, a podjedanko su važni za rad svih ćelija organizma. Morska voda osvježava tijelo,  jača mišiće, stimulira cirkulaciju i rad srca, tonizira kožu čineći je glatkom.

Najbolji lijek protiv stresa, anksioznosti i razdražljivosti je more. Morska sol raspršena u zraku tj. aerosol djeluje podsticajno na nervne završetke u koži, pomaže u ublažavanju kod otoka i povoljno djeluje na disajne puteve. More je prirodni lijek za sinuse, alergije i prehlade.

  1. Morska voda i koža-morska voda ublažava tegobe kod pojedinih kožnih oboljenja, naprimjer psorijaze i dermatitisa. Kalijum-hlorid, sastojak morske soli ubrzava zarastanje oštećene kože. More je prirodni antiseptik i pomaže kod nestajanja ekcema. Morska voda je antihistaminik, odnosno otvara disajne puteve. Pretjerani boravak u morskoj vodi isušuje kožu. Zato se preporučuje redovito tuširanje i korištenje krema za sunčanje.
  2. Zdravi uticaj mora na ljudski organizam-slana morska voda pomaže kod razdraženosti sluznice nosa i kod šmrcanja uslijed alergije i prehlade. Kada god imate priliku, rukama zagrabite morske vodu i prinesite ih prvo jednoj nosnici, pa udišite, potom drugoj pa udišite. Iako morska sol peče, istovremeno dezinfikuje nosnu šupljinu. Osobama sa proširenim venama se preporučuje da uđu u vodu do polovine bedara i hodaju pola sata, 2x dnevno. Uslijed kretanja, masaža zateže i jača vene. Korisna je šetnja po plićaku. Ispiranje morskom vodom se preporučuje ženama koje imaju upale mokraćnih kanala ili pojačan vaginalni sekret.
  3. Plivanje je sport i rekreacija-Kupanje u moru osvježava i puni organizam nedostatnom energijom. Zbog minerala u sastavu mora sličnog sastavu tečnog dijela krvi i plazme, more nam daje energiju. Pomjeranje tijela u morskoj vodi je savršena gimnastika za mišiće i cirkulaciju krvi. Hodanje u morksoj vodi spriječava zadržavanje tečnosti u organizmu i stvaranje celulita. Na kupanje ne bi trebalo ići neposredno nakon obroka, jer hladna voda blokira varenje i dovodi do iznenadnog osjećaja slabosti. Ako je more hladnije, ne preporučuje se dug boravak u vodi.
  4. Blizina mora opušta ljudski organizam-Šetajući ili sjedeći duž morske obale udišemo morski zrak bogat negativnim jonima. Negativni joni pomažu kod ogsigenizacije organizma. Joni emituju energiju koja stvara psihičko i fizičko blaženstvo. Osjećaj smirenosti. Zato se negativni joni nazivaju i vitamini iz morskog zraka. Najvažniji element u tragovima koji dolazi iz mora je jod. Morska sol i alge su riznica ovog minerala. Jod je važan za proizvodnju hormona štitne žijezde, koji utiču na brojne procese u organizmu. Ovi hormoni kontrolišu brzinu, kojom se obavlja razmjena materija u organizmu, i brzinu kojom se materije razgrađuju, a novonastala jedinjenja ugrađuju u ćelije.
