Five Ways to Improve Health

fat and thin

Agni or digestive power is an unknown concept in the West yet it is central to how disease occurs in Ayurveda  How agni is described metaphorically is like a campfire  It it's strong it burns wood to fine dust but if not the wood burns to charred debris  The agni not being up to par will leave undigested unprocessed food that the energy science calls which Ama is the beginning of the disease process according to Ayurveda  So we can see how agni is so important in the disease process...a fact that is completely unknown in the West 

Agni becomes abnormal when it is either too hot or too cold  It seems strange that agni can be too hot but it metaphorically is like a hot pot on the stove but the water or agni in the pot is ice cold....so the agni acts hot but functionally it is not effective

Clinically it looks like this....very strong appetite but once in the gut the digestion is not up to par and leaves charred undigested remains or ama   So when our appetite is too strong it doesn't mean good things

How to Get Agni Healthy Again

1 Use Green Composite Protein Recipe....write if you would like to know how to do it

2 Snacking ruins digestive power....so dont do it

3 Avoid incompatible food combinations ...fruit with other food etc

4 Use homemade yogurt as a probiotic and pappadam as a prebiotic

5 Don't overeat....noon meal biggest meal of the day....should be 2 handfuls

Energy Science Cookbook

CookbookCan it be that the current dietary recommendations by our nutritional gurus are actually making us sicker? I believe this is the case.

If our current system of nutritional recommendations is so hot, why do we see people such as Oprah struggling with weight control along with millions of others?

Time to re-evaluate, eh? There is no question that our molecular prowess has given us important information but the molecular scheme is outmoded for our biological understanding in the 21st century.

Can inappropriate and indiscriminate supplements make us sick? You bet.

So what's a confused and bewildered consumer supposed to do? Try an energy science approach to not only nutrition but to healing. Now that's empowerment.

Here's a list that should be part of a nutritional system. Notice I said system, I didnt say molecules.

Get this Ayurvedic Cookbook....you won't be disappointed http://goo.gl/wiP0qO

In the book you'll find great guidance on how to begin eating healthy from an energy science perspective

Establish a balanced healthy digestive fire

Monitor bowel function and establish healthy patterns

Avoiding incompatible food combinations

Establish healthy rituals around nutrition

This is an energy science approach to nutrition. It requires a paradigm shift from our molecular matter science approach. As has been said, "How's it workin' for ya?", perhaps provides some impetus.

Dietary Monotony

How about a technique to reduce calories, feel good, feel calmer, and maybe keep in touch with your weight?

Sound too good to be true? Then read on
Personal Experience

Over the years I've experienced different forms of the same food day in and day Some people call it fasting, some would just label it a monodiet

It can be done with juices, fruit, or just a simple vegetable dish that we've written about in the past And it can be done over a few days or weeks or even longer

The point is that it's the same Maybe a different type of fruit or juice based on my mindbody makeup, but it's still fruit or juice maybe the same vegetable dish but a different types of vegetables

Now my personal observation that I've had with this type of fasting or monodiet is that it's not monotonous
Monotony is a Product of the Mind

From an energy science medical view the Vata energy pattern is that of movement Anything that has to do with movement in the physiology is Vata energy and primarily expressed in the nervous system So a turbulent mind is a Vata aggravated mind Too many thoughts to process, too many emotions to deal with, too little time to accomplish everything

To say that always having the same foods all the time is boring is simply an agitated mind

And one of the simplest ways to calm the Vata aggravated mind is monotony Samo samo

Think about it How hectic would life become if you had to look for your toothbrush, purse or wallet, and carkeys everyday? Life would become quickly frenetic and inefficient

Furthermore the mindbody loves habitual living It's comfortable, less stressful And in the end I believe we often eat this way anyway People have their favorite dishes and the routine of eating the same "comfort foods"


Research Supported Nutritional Monotony

Now in the August 2011 American Journal of Nutrition, matter science researchers report on a study where people subjected to the same diets over and over again were observed to consume less calories

And as a opposite to this was a study showing recently that with increased variety at buffets can lead to increased caloric intake!

A matter science observation (measurement of reduced caloric intake) has been made but from an energy science nutritional view the explanation is that this form of monodiet(loosely called fasting here) is Vata pacifying, that is, it creates more physiologic calming which in turns less food intake

Not because it's boring but because the monodiet is calming

Ups and Downs of Healing

Levels4 As we have talked about in the past, foods create imbalance. There becomes an accumulation of vibrational frequencies induced by the foods that we eat that are imbalancing to us according to the energy sciences. This promotes an ever increasing energetic imbalance with the typical timeline represented in years and decades.

This energetic state of imbalance reaches a nadir when symptoms become inevitable and periodic. This usually begins in the 30's and 40's but may be sooner dependent on the defective space where these accumulated vibrational frequencies may congregate.

These waves of imbalance continue and usually patched with pharmaceuticals or operations based on the dis-ease. And it's not that these are right or wrong. The point of this discussion is to point out that the unconscious choices that we are making with respect to foods have direct impact on our energy mindbodies.

Once we begin to make conscious choices on behalf of our mindbodies, we begin the conscious journey to restore balance in our mindbodies. No matter what the imbalances, it is possible for all of us to regain balance and our health. And in the process make health a skill. To good health DrBill

Dealing with Osteoporosis

bigstock_Highlighted_Colon_3730501

We have all seen the thin frail elderly lady making it along and hoping that she won't fall because of her fragile appearance

And we are right in our assumption that she is fragile because this is a situation that is associated with an increased incidence of osteoporosis

Where did the calcium go? Why did it get leached out of her bones? What can be done?

The answer to these questions are difficult to answer from the matter science medical model today but the energy science medical model has a lot to say about the health of bones in chronic Vata aggravated states

The energy science states that the health of the bones is related to the health of the colonic mucosa If the lining of the colon is not healthy due to the excess influence of the Vata energy the qualities of dry, rough and hot predominate and the surface no longer becomes an absorptive surface

Where do the minerals of the body get absorbed? The colon

What happens when that energetic surface becomes dry rough and hot? Yep lack of absorption of all kinds of minerals

So how to improve the health of the colon

Use triphala on a regular basis....chandika.com

Use a nutritional format appropriate for our mindbody energy constitution...foodsheal.com

Avoid poor food combining...foodsheal.com

Use ghee on a regular basis

Work on having a regular bowel movements

Supplement with high biological available calcium and magnesium and avoid "dumb" nonintelligent calcium

Supplement daily with white sesame seeds

The Neti Pot

Some of you may have used the neti for clearing mucous for the common cold which energetically is a Kapha release Kapha is the energy pattern of stability in the physiology It is composed of the qualities of heavy, slow/dull, cool, slimy/smooth, liquid, dense, soft, hard, static, and sticky The mucous of the common cold during its course exhibits many of the qualities of Kapha which supports bodily structures

Unblocking PVWhen Kapha becomes excessive in the physiology it brings the static and heavy qualities in excess which block the lighter qualities of Vata and Pitta  In the diagram one can see that the columns of Vata and Pitta get blocked by Kapha but when Kapha becomes less then Vata and Pitta can flow once again

The Kapha energy pattern is involved in the many disease processes and one of the simplest ways to deal with this imbalance is to use the neti pot in order to remove excess Kapha from the sinuses and  remove excess Kapha from the body particularly when neti is followed by a breath technique of kapalabhati followed by oil drops in the nose(nasya) which will gradually and slowly loosen Kapha's blockage in the physiology

Releasing this blockage allows Pitta and Vata to move once again and unblock the channels in the body leading to improvement in symptoms

Neti potTo do neti one needs a good sized container...500cc available on Amazon If you'd like more information I can send you more on request
