Post Cleanse Update

It's been a few weeks now since I did my gallbladder/liver cleanse and I have to say I feel fantastic! I have really felt a lot better, clearer and lighter since. My tongue is noticeably clearer and there are also no teeth marks on the side. This tells me that what I am feeling is true - I am happy on the inside! I was a little naughty last week and had some cake and chocolate. Once that genie is out of the bottle it sure does enjoy it's freedom! But I managed to get it back in quite quickly and easily compared to the past. I indulged and then moved on. However not quick enough and I also broke out as a result. You would think at 38 I really would be past spots! It just goes to show that my

PMS Therapies

I have had a few women recently complain about a variety of symptoms associated with PMS and it has prompted me to write this entry. It might seem that this is another post for the girls but not necessarily as I know a lot of guys are effected by their partners when they are suffering from uncontrollable hormones, pain, discomfort and a general lack of peacefulness within themselves. So this is for all the girls and guys out there who suffer in one way or another. There is a lot that can be done to help women to have a more comfortable monthly experience. Here are some things that you can try: Yoga. This is a wonderful way to help your body deal with the hardships of PMS. Firstly, it helps

Indigestion

I had the worst indigestion this afternoon. I don't know why, maybe my body is still adjusting after the cleanse. Well I'm pretty sure that has a lot to do with it. I was thinking about what I ate and trying to figure out what was going on and I'm thinking it could have been the pear I had at lunch. It was pretty crunchy but I just thought it was because it had been in the fridge but now I'm starting to suspect it wasn't ripe enough. Pears are aggravating for vatas so I figure they are probably even more so when they are crunchy. Vatas have the weakest digestion and as I have very recently been on a cleanse/fast my digestive system/agni is even weaker and needs to be treated carefully. Up ti

Words of Wisdom from Dr P.H. Kulkarni

I went to an Ayurvedic conference about 2 weekends ago and I was very lucky to experience some truely amazingly informative lectures by 2 of India's most highly respected Ayurvedic practitioners and educators. This post is dedicated to the little words of wisdom that Dr P.H. Kulkarni shared with us over the weekend. I hope you find them as inspiring and interesting as I do. What happens in the Universe happens in our body One who is born will die. Take care one day a week with food and rest. The weekends will be up and down so just let them be but make one day a week a day to bring balance and harmony into your life. If you enjoy everything then there will be no desires and this will bring

Lactation

Another post for the new mothers. I have come to realise over time as more and more people I know have babies that although breastfeeding is natural it is not always easy. This post is for all breast feeding mothers having trouble meeting the needs of their growing babies. Fennel seeds: They can be taken in a variety of ways. Added to food, made into a tea or chewed as is or roasted. 2 drops of fennel oil in honey water every 2 hours. Fennel and fenugreek tea Chrysanthemum tea Mangos Quality fats Warm cooked foods Reduction of dry foods Stewed fruits Milk (organic of course) Incorporating sweet, sour and salty tastes into the diet. Stress, fear, anger are best avoided if possible. Hot baths

Gallbladder Cleanse Part 2

Once again I have to apologise for my late posting. My plan to stay home, write about my experiences on my blog, cook healthy food, relax and recover from my cleanse took a different route early Saturday evening. Due to unforeseen family issues I had to travel 3 hours back to my parents house and did not return home until early last night totally exhausted. But that's OK some things cannot be helped and you just have to make the best of what life gives you. I will start from the beginning. At 6 pm Friday night I drank a mixture of Epsom salts and water and then 2 hours later I drank some more. At 10 pm I drank a mixture of olive oil and grapefruit juice. It is hard to say which tasted wo

Gallbladder Cleanse

So today is the big day! After weeks of waiting for a weekend to do my cleanse the time has finally arrived. I am going to do a Gall Bladder cleanse to rid my system of all the accumulated Ama (toxins) that have lodged themselves in my body over the years. I figure I can do all the best things in the world but if I don't get the rubbish out then all my efforts will only do so much. Ayurveda has been practicing purification practices called panchakama for centuries for the same reason. Panchakama is a major therapy in Ayurveda and usually people spend days, weeks or months at an Ayurvedic centre purging and rehabilitating in order to cure themselves of all kinds of ailments. I do not have the
