Abhyanga: Ayurvedic Oil Massage – Healing & Nourishing Ritual | Dylan Smith #090

Vital Veda Podcast Banner
Abhyanga: Ayurvedic oil massage, is one of the most popular and impactful treatments & practices in Ayurveda.

Abhyanga should not only be considered a treatment that is occasionally performed by a trained therapist, but also as one of the essential practices and integral parts of the Ayurvedic dinacaryā (daily routine).

The Ayurvedic sacred texts (Śastras) break down the great importance & healing capacities of Abhyanga, and most particularly the importance of incorporating self-Abhyanga as a daily habit.

This episode is for those that are absolutely new to Abhyanga, as well as those who have already been practicing it for years. On this episode, we break down the ins & outs of this wonderful healing practice.


In this Episode we Discuss:

What is Abhyanga & What Are Its Unique Features

Abhyanga is a form of Ayurvedic oil massage.
Abhyanga can be in the form of self-massage or it can also be performed on one’s body by a trained Ayurvedic body therapist. 
Ayurvedic massage is very different to the more common massages on the market - deep tissue, Swedish, Japanese, Chinese, Thai massage, sports massage, Lomi Lomi/Kahuna, etc.
The main differences are:
The Medicated Oils
This is a key aspect of the Abhyanga. 
Usually, coconut or sesame oil is medicated with various herbs according to the season and the individual's unique constitution.
Ayurvedic massage oils have the power to penetrate through all layers of skin and enter into all 7 body tissues (dhatus) to do their job of effective detoxification, nourishment, and more.
If you want to get a treatment you can either come to the Vital Veda Clinic in Sydney, Australia, or go to a nearby certified Ayurvedic therapist and take our precious medicated oils with you. 
For self-Abhyanga massage, you can buy the oils from us or prepare your own oil at home with our medicinal herb pack called Kumkumadi Powder.
Strokes
The strokes are selected and applied in a vigorous and rhythmic matter according to the client's constitution and imbalances.
Marma Points
Special consideration is given to the Marma Points.
  • Marma Points are the special storehouses of energy and concentrated life force. 
  • The Marmas are enlivened for vast harmonious effects. 
  • Perhaps when performing Abhyanga daily there’s no need for marma therapy or acupressure (which can potentially be very dangerous) as abhyanga already activates the marmas. 
Healing The 7 Chakras
The 7 chakras are also worked on to unblock any problems related to them.


Benefits of Daily Abhyanga

ābhyaṅgamācarennityaṃ sa jarāśramavātahā

dṛṣṭiprasādapuṣṭyāyuḥ svapnasutvaktvadārḍhyakṛt //

- Astanga Hrdayam, Sutra Sthana, Chapter 2, Verse 8.

Meaning:
Whoever does the abhyanga every day, for them:
  • Jarā – aging is reduced
  • Śrama – tiredness is reduced
  • Vāta - dosha is reduced
  • Dṛṣṭiprasāda – improves the clarity of vision and strengthens the eyes. 
  • puṣṭi – gives energy and nourishes dhatus.
  • Ayu – prolongs age.
  • Svapna – induces good sleep (when vata is pacified, you have good calmness and निर्मलत्वाम् / प्रसन्न)
  • tvaktvadādhryakṛt – improves skin tone and complexion.

Abhyanga should ideally be done daily, morning. 

Other benefits:
Lymphatic Drainage
The Lymphatic system is critical for good health according to Ayurveda, and Abhyanga specifically stimulates and strengthens the lymphatic system, thus improves immunity and stabilises hormones, and in this way it improves physical and mental states.
Pacifying the Nervous System 
The skin has more nerve endings then any part of the body, and this is why Ayurvedic massage, through appropriate strokes channelled harmoniously with the body's channels, is so effective in calming the mind down, grounding a frantic mind, releasing stress, promoting proper sleep, and providing a state in which the body can deeply rest. There isn't any other way to pacify 20,000,000 nerve receptors in the body’s skin in just a couple of minutes.
Studies have shown that people with hypertension and depression improve with massage therapy.
Massage appears to decrease cortisol, a disease-producing and degenerative stress hormone.*
It also increases dopamine, norepinephrine & oxytocin, which boost mood, reward, pleasure and wellbeing.*
  • Amazingly, research also shows that oxytocin*:
    • Extends life in cancer patients
    • Reduces cravings for sweets
    • Reduces anxiety and depression
    • Increases sexual potency and desire
    • Reduces cortisol and boosts immunity
Improve Immunity and Increase Stamina.
Massage has also been found to boost immunity and killer T cells in AIDS patients.*  
Enhance blood circulation.
Promote flexibility of the muscles, tissues and joints.
Strengthens The Skin, Muscles & Bones
Promotes softness and luster of the skin as well as youthfulness.
Correct injuries, specifically the muscle and bone tissue.
Enhance positive microbiology in your body (your skin is home to massive colonies of microbes).
Balances The Three Doshas
It opens the flow of Prana (Life Force) by balancing the three doshas.

“The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries, or strenuous work. By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age.”

Charaka Samhita Vol. 1, V: 88-89 (One of the Great ancient texts of Ayurveda)

Protection From Negative or Draining Energies 
  • Healthcare workers
  • Bodyworkers - massage therapists, etc.
  • Hospice
  • Death doulas
  • Drug and alcohol
  • Bacteria and viruses - energetic periphery
  • Viral or spike protein shedding
  • Meditation teachers
  • Occupational therapists
  • Overly sensitive people
  • Etc.
Develops Dhatu Metabolism and Enhances Mala Kriya
Between each of the 7 layers of skin is one of seven dhatu agnis.
Bhrajaka Pitta absorbs nutrients and medicaments we put on our body. 
So the more we do abhyanga, the more dhatu development happens.
 “When we are not oleating daily, and not protecting the communicating intelligence in our skin, then due to the dryness the channels will be blocked. Then the proper knowledge is blocked because the correct pathway is blocked. This blockage is the cause of disease“

~ Vaidya Krishna Raju







How to Do Self-Abhyanga

Download the Self-Abhyanga instruction poster here.
Verse 9: Important Areas in Abhyanga and When to Avoid Abhyanga 
śiraḥśravaṇapādeṣu taṃ viśeṣeṇa śīlayet 
varjyo 'bhyaṅgaḥ kaphagrastakṛtasaṃśuddhyajīrṇibhiḥ
Massage should be especially done on head, ears, and legs (these need to be done more). 
Also ears, feet (increases circulation) big toe good for eyes, navel (main vata places)
When to do - morning or evening before shower. Ideally in the morning.
Śiro Pichu + Pad Abhyanga - before sleep.
“Disease does not go near one who massages his feet before sleeping, just as snakes do not approach eagles”.
- Ancient Saying

Self-Abhyanga Contra-Indications

  • Increase in Kapha in the body
  • Soon after shodana karma like pancakarmas
  • During indigestion
  • During nausea
  • Congestion, cold, jvara, flu
  • Headache
  • Menstruation
  • Strong ama doṣa - e.g. amavata / Rheumatoid arthritis - or give svedana / with certain oils
  • Post certain surgeries
  • New tattoos - avoid that area
  • First trimester of pregnancy
  • 8th month of pregnancy - for receiving abh - or any body treatments, unless your physician applies.

Oils to Use

  • If you can get your hands on an Ayurvedic medicated massage oil that is suitable for you, that will be beneficial.
      • Medicated or herbalised oils are created when herbs are cooked into certain oils. This is different to just adding essentials oils to a base oil, which is not really an Ayurvedic medicated oil.
      • When the oil becomes medicated, it becomes a "nano-medicine" that has the ability to enter the body on a deep level (suksma karma).
  • Sesame oil in winter/cold climate & coconut oil in summer or for those with sensitive skin.
      • You can also use other oils like almond and macadamia, or whatever is locally grown to you, but the former two are primarily recommended by Ayurveda.
  • Warm up your massage oil. This will increase the effect and nourishing quality as the oil can penetrate deeper into the skin and tissues.

Giving Abhyanga to Others

After people receive an authentic Ayurvedic massage, mostly they experience an underlying sustaining bliss, while simultaneously their grounded, relaxed and refreshed mind is surprised. They often ask "what did I just receive?"

Ayurvedic Daily Routine, Guru & Spirituality | Vaidya Aditya Raju #089

Vital Veda Podcast banner
Daily routine, “dinacharyā”, is one of the pillars of health in Ayurvedic medicine.
Integrating certain practices into your daily routine that are rooted in natural law supports one to smoothly flow on their path of evolution with minimal friction and maximum health.
This podcast features world renowned Ayurvedic doctor, Vaidya Ādityā Raju, who generously shares wisdom on the Ayurvedic daily routine in such an elaborate way like you have probably never heard before.
This episode was auspiciously recorded on the eve of the fullest moon of the year, known as "Guru Pūrṇimā.”
Thus, we explore the role of Guru - which literally translates to “that which removes darkness”, and the multitude of qualities of “Guru consciousness."

About our guest: Vaidya Aditya Raju

In this Episode we Discuss:

The Essentials of the Ayurvedic Daily Routine (Dinacharya)

Firstly, waking up in the brāma muhūrta
  • For more information on the brāhma muhūrta click here.
Drinking cool water first thing in the morning (after cleaning your teeth & scraping your tongue) and later hot water the rest of the day. 
  • This assists in the cleansing of the body & the removal of ama (undigested toxic material). 
  • After washing your teeth it is advised that you do some form of gargling or oil pulling (ideally use the special Gandusha Oil or plain sesame oil)
Nasya नस्य (sniffing a drop of nasya oil like our Nasika Oil up each nostril) to lubricate, cleanse and protect the upper srotas (channels). 
  • Advice: don’t do nasya before taking a shower, before having a meal, before going to bed nor when having a cold/flu. 
Abhyanga अभ्यङ्ग massage to stimulate the lymph & blood flow around the body, hydrate the skin & pull toxins out it + much more.
  • You can read more about abhyanga massage, how to do it and its many benefits here
  • After your self-abhyanga practice you can take a shower or bathe in the sea/ocean. The water invokes the essence of ganga, the goddess or supreme intelligence of water that is all-purifying. 
    • It cleanses on the external/superficial level.
Practicing some form of meditation will allow you to de-excite the mind & to establish yourself in a state of pure being. Meditation is the way for you to cleanse the internal and deeper level.  
  • At Vital Veda we recommend the Vedic Meditation practice. 
    • To find a Vedic meditation teacher near you click here & scroll down to “Vedic meditation”. 
There is no need to be strict with your Dinacharya. Start gradually. Explore & implement different practices out of joy.

Other Powerful Practices

Bringing awareness to your hands and observing the three main aspects of the mother divine (Lakshmi, Saraswati & Uma). You can chant the Karaagre Vasate Lakshmi mantra. 

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मीः करमध्ये सरस्वती

Karagrei Vasate Lakssmi ∽ Kara-Madhye Saraswati

करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम्

Kara-Mūle Bhavet Gauri ∽ Prabhaate Kara-Darśanam

The upper hand is the seat of Lakshmi (fingers). The middle of palm is the seat of Saraswati, the base of the palm (lower pads & thumbs) is the seat of Gauri (Durga/Parvati). The first sight of the day has a special power and makes a deeper impression on the brain ~ especially during Brahmi Muhurta. So when we see our palms first while repeating the Mantra, we are enlivening all three special energies in our physiology because:

Before putting your feet on the ground you can chant the Samudra Vasane Devi mantra. 

समुद्रवसने देवि पर्वतस्तनमण्डले

Samudra-Vasane Devi Parvata-Stana-Mannddale

विष्णुपत्नि नमस्तुभ्यं पादस्पर्शं क्षमस्वम

Vissnnu-Patni Namas-Tubhyam Paada-Sparsham Kssamasva-Me

  • The meaning of this mantra is the following:
    • Line 1: (Oh Mother Earth) O Devi, You Who have the Ocean as Your Garments, and Mountains as Your Bosom.
    • Line 2: O Consort of Lord Vishnu, Salutations to You; Please Forgive my Touch of the Feet (on Earth, which is Your Holy Body).
  • This mantra or shloka beautifully describes the tolerance, compasion, patience and nurturing quality of earth and it is meant to enliven our appreciation for mother nature & all the organisms that it holds & provides for. 
Doing some asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breath regulation) early in the morning before the abhyanga
After your morning meditation, you can do a puja पूजा (a ceremonial worship). 
  • Firstly invoking Ganesha (the remover of obstacles) & afterward your Guru(s) and your ishta devata (your personal supreme deity) to show your appreciation & to ask for guidance. 
  • Everything that you do before the puja is a preparation for this moment. You first cleanse your body & mind, get established in being, and only then do you engage with the puja. 
    • This ideally is the first real “action” of the day. 
  • The puja allows for the enlivening of siddhis (divine-human capabilities)

Seasonal Routines

Ritucharya ऋतुचर्या translates to seasonal routine. The ritus are the Vedic seasons & the word charya means “routine”. 
  • The year is divided in 6 ritus of 2 months each:
    • शिशिर (śiśira) – Late winter
    • वसन्त (vasanta) – Spring
    • ग्रीष्म (grīṣma) – Summer
    • वर्षा (varṣā) – Rains
    • शरद् (śarad) – Autumn
    • हेमन्त (hemanta) – Early winter 
“There occur some special changes in environment and humans in every Ritu, and hence certain foods and exercises are specifically told for each Ritu, this process is known as Ritucharya”
Source – aruṇadatta commentary on aṣṭāṃga hrudaya, sūtra 3.1
For more information on the advised ritucharya for your specific physiology & the current ritu please schedule a consultation with Dylan. 
  • You can book a consultation with Dylan by clicking HERE.

Mantras

The regular and intentional practice of mantras allows for them to fully imbibe their essence within one’s physiology, to the point of one being able to recognize the beeja and mudra for said mantra(s) naturally. 
  • When the mantras have been assimilated to that degree, one can recite them & do their mudras at astounding speeds - beyond what can be perceived with the naked eye. 
    • It is a level of mantra-mastery that is often only achieved by the most dedicated brahmins.
  • This deep familiarization with mantras has epigenetic repercussions, to the point where the energetic effects of these primordial sounds on one’s nervous system ends up being passed down to one’s own progyny.

What is “Guru” गुरु?

The traditional role of the guru is to allow for the shishya (disciple) to chip away old habits,  also known as Vṛtti(s) वृत्ति, that do not contribute to the evolution of the spirit.  
  • The cleansing of our karma & samskaras becomes severely accelerated when under the guidance of a master. 
  • When these imperfections are removed by means of a specific sadhana (spiritual practice), all that is left is pure chitta (awareness). 
The meaning of jagadguru जगद्गुरु - a term composed of the words jagat which means “the entire world” and guru meaning “spiritual master” or literally “remover of darkness”. 
  • A jagadguru is a spiritual master of the whole world.
  • There are several jagadgurus recognized in history, amongst them the legendary spiritual master Adi Shankaracharya, founder of the Advaita Vedanta school of philosophy; Veda Vyasa, the master who compiled the Vedas; and even Lord Kṛṣṇa who gifted the world with a lot of wisdom, especially in the Bhagavad Gita.
How Gurus manage to engage with the world in a completely frictionless manner due to their unique level of transcendence. 
  • Being established in pure being allows for one to flow through life effortlessly, free of attachment. 

The field of guru consciousness
A guru can be anything and anyone. A guru is everything that teaches you a lesson and removes darkness from your life. 
  • Guru can be a traditional master, but it can also be a mother, a father, a friend, one’s sangha (spiritual community), an event/experience, and even elements of nature like a tree, a butterfly or a stone.
The Mother is the first guru of everyone.  

Guru-Sishya Relationships
How these relationships come to be.
The love and devotion between student & master.

The Vedas & The Idea of “Spirituality”

Spirituality in the Vedas is not merely religious practices. It is not an isolated concept or something that is practiced in isolation from other things. 
The Vedas show that spirituality permeates everything, and all things can be spiritual. In the Vedas mathematics are spiritual, science is spiritual, the medical system (Ayurveda) is spiritual, etc. 
All things are integrated with each other in the Vedas, everything is a part of the whole, hence there is a Saṃbandha संबन्ध (connection) between all things.

Vargas (Caste System)

The karma of family lineages.

EMF EXPANDED: Geo-Electric & Human Generated Radiation | Gerard Bini #085

Vital Veda Podcast Banner
Awareness of Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMF) is increasing.
People are becoming more conscious about the frequencies emitted from technological devices like phones, WiFi, computers, cell-phone towers, smart meters etc.
But underneath these superficial frequencies emitted from man-made devices emits over 30 different types of harmful EMR fields in our homes and workplaces including Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), Earth Radiation (Geopathic Stress), Bioplasmic Radiation (Human Generated) and Solar and Planetary Radiation imprints.
This episode with explores the subtle and powerful types of EMR and EMF thatḥumans are exposed to, and that you may have never even considered.  
Health Practitoner Dylan Smith interviews Gerard Bini, the foremost Australian expert in the development of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) harmonizing products, as they reveal these 
“hidden frequency fields” and how to mitigate them.

About our guest: Gerard Bini

Gerard Bini, founder of Orgone Effects Australia and the foremost Australian expert in the development of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) harmonizing products, is a well-respected and internationally renowned Intuitive Building Biologist with 21 years' experience and research into EMF beyond the normal.
Gerard has acute intuitive senses that have been honed over many years of practice.
Intuitive processes fully involves scientific protocols of multiple testing, double blind testing, surveys of experiments to track and neutralize different types of EMF fields to produce, over time, statistical data to back up the results of whatever we are testing. Not just an ‘in my own mind it works’ attitude.
Gerard Bini
It is the knowledge base of Gerard Bini, an Intuitive Building Biologist and EMF Consultant, with his advanced intuitive energy reading and dowsing skills developed over many years, that all contribute to the uniqueness and outstanding performance of all Orgone Effects® products, which are sold in over 20 countries around the world.

In this Episode we Discuss:

Measuring Solar Wind Speed

The solar wind is a stream of charged particles released from the upper atmosphere of the Sun, called the corona. This plasma mostly consists of electrons, protons and alpha particles with kinetic energy between 0.5 and 10 keV.
Gerard checks spaceweather.com not only first thing in the morning but multiple times a day. 
Very high/strong solar winds generate a geoelectric current through the ground of the earth, which is then radiated up out of the ground. 
  • Strong solar wind speeds = 500km/second and upward.
    • Generates geo-electric current throughout the ground of the earth. can be 1.5m - 15m up the ground.
  • This radiation can cause a huge amount of geopathic stress in the body 
    • Geopathic stress happens when energies emanating from the earth cause ill health in human beings. 
Certain planetary arrangements like retrogrades can also lead to severe spikes in cosmic radiation, which has an impact on our physiologies. 

Human Generated Radiation Imprints

When someone dies in a state of distress they will always leave a positively charged bioplasmic imprint. 
Yogis that die by attaining maha samadhi only leave negatively charged bioplasmic imprints. 
When you measure the energies in the crypts of ancient civilizations like native Australian tribes, you find that the energy is very harmonious and negatively charged.
On the contrary, when going to the local cemetery, the energies tend to be very positive and abrasive. 

How to Measure The Radiations Accurately

Gerard is very fond of the Biotensor tool, which allows him to measure the Bio-field of a certain area. 

He has mastered the discernment to intuitively look at a property and its surroundings and have an accurate feel of the bio-field of the land. 

Negative charges tend to be beneficial for humans and positive charges tend to be more inflammatory and act in detriment to our health.

The Effects of Radiation in The Human Physiology

The Human Generated bioplasmic imprint left by previous land owners of a property can affect someone who is moving into a new house. 
  • E.g. If a previous land owner had a chronic disease, the whole house but particularly the sleeping area will be charged with his/her bioplasmic imprint. If the new bed is placed in the same place, that imprint can affect the new owner and promote the emergence of the same disease in their own body. 
There are hebenefitial geoelectric currents called Ley Lines. 
In general terms, bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, seas & the ocean have negative charges that can be beneficial for humans. 
  • If the solar winds are too high, these charges can be knocked down and turned positive (detrimental). 
Fissure / water veins - affects the body via stress.
Creates a kinetic energy charge and a radiation field roughly about 4m wide.

How Ancient Cultures Harmonised Geo-Electric Stressors

Harmonisers of different types have been around for thousands of years. 
In Autobiography of a Yogi, Sri Yukteswar gives Yogananda an astrological bracelet made of copper silver and gold which is a very well known form of a harmoniser. 
Mantra chanting can also chant as a harmoniser because it can produce a negative or positive charge that can help cancel out other frequencies. 
Smoking ceremonies done by native indigenous tribes also act as harmonisers. 

Building Biology

Building biology is the science that investigates the health hazards in any built environment. 
Mold, technological infrastructure, geopathic stress & 5G exposure are some of the most pressing issues that most buildings face. 
Streetlights and their devastating relationship with 5G. 

EMF Blocking Technology

It’s a very amateur Industry where a lot of production is being made without having proper science to back up the products. 
Marketers are exploiting the market and putting as many products out there as possible and they are not effective. 
Gerard started producing harmonisers almost 20 years ago and has refined the technology immensely to produce state-of-the-art harmonisers. 
The Effect of Electronic Watches
They are pumping EMF straight into your bloodstream.

Being Conscious and Aware vs. Fearing EMF

It’s not a matter of falling into despair or becoming paranoid or fearful for these frequencies. That will only increase their detriment to your life. 
It is more a matter of understanding and becoming aware  so that we can take appropriate action to reduce their impact on our daily lives.

Heavy Metals, Minerals and Bhasma in Ayurvedic Herbology and Herbal Products (3rd Biggest Myth In Ayurveda) | Dylan Smith #084

Vital Veda Podcast Banner
When ancient wisdom gets popular, confusion and misunderstanding tends to arise within.
The essence and authenticity tends to blur, and this has happened with the knowledge of Ayurveda - the Sacred Science of Healing and Higher Consciousness.
Ayurvedic practitioner and educator Dylan Smith, known for his authenticity and devoted role to keeping the purity of Ayurveda alive and thriving, dispels the 3 Biggest Myths of Ayurvedic medicine.
These MYTHS are:
  1. “You have to be vegetarian” according to Ayurveda - or even that “Vegetarian is the best diet.”
  2. “Onion and garlic are prohibited”.
  3. “Ayurvedic medicines are commonly contaminated with heavy metals.”

In this Episode we Discuss:

Bhasmas: The Root Of This Myth

Ayurvedic practitioners not only prescribe herbs & foods but also purified minerals. 
One of the aspects of Ayurvedic Herbology is mainly centered around bhasmas - highly purified metallic & mineral preparations. 
  • If the purification is done the right way, Ayurveda says taking them is not only safe, but they can have very powerful medicinal & healing effects

The Importance of Metal Purification For Ayurvedic Compositions

The Ayurvedic purification process is known in Sanskrit as shodana samskara
If the purification process of the metals is not done right, there can be detrimental effects caused by these formulas. 
Getting your formulas from reliable sources is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to formulas that contain bhasmas.

Shedding Spike Proteins Cvd Vx((een | Stephanie Grutz #061

Vital Veda Podcast Banner
An all inclusive discussion about the potential shedding of spike proteins that are generated by the body after receiving the CvD Vx((een.

These proteins may be what is causing the adverse health effects being reported by many of those who don’t receive the vx((een, but simply are around those who have.

- What are spike proteins?
- How are they being transmitted?
- How can we detox and overcome side effects after receiving the vx((een?
- What precautions should we take to prevent transmission?
- How can we prevent receiving spike proteins and the adverse effects?
- Why are so many women having hormonal and gynaecological imbalances after being around others who have had the vx((een?

About Our Guest: Stephanie Gurtz

Stephanie is an integrative nurse practitioner with over 12 years in the field of medicine.
In 2009, Stephanie was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and eventually diagnosed with Crohn's. She started down a path of biologics and steroids with deteriorating health. As she desperately searched for answers, she stumbled upon integrative medicine. She went all in, changed her mind, body and spirit and started treating herself holistically. Since 2014, Stephanie has been using her skills and experiences to help empower others to work towards their healthiest selves.
I chose once again Stephanie to be on this podcast because of her extensive, non-biased independent research on the C19 vx((een.

In this Episode we Discuss:

Stephanie's Daily Routine (Dinacharya)

Stephanie’s medical background and why she turned to integrative/holistic medicine

Becoming a certified nurse and going through all of the western medicine paradigm.
Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in her twenties and looking for alternatives to the life-time use of immunosuppressants. 
Going through a consciousness shift that affected her entire life and eventually healed her condition. 
Developing an integrative practice in which she provides a range of services that allows for people to detox their bodies.

Spike proteins

Spike proteins essentially are what our body manufactures after receiving the vx((een. 
The members of the coronavirus family have these sharp bumps - or little crowns - that protrude, these are spike proteins.  
These proteins act as the key to the lock that is our immune system, they allow the virus to enter certain cells and start the self-replication that will lead to our bodies getting sick.
Ficus Religiosa Trees
Coronavirus (the red "crowns" are the Spike Proteins)
The idea behind the vx((eens is that when these spike proteins are introduced into our bodies, they will make our bodies create synthetic proteins of the same nature. Therefore, if and when the wild exterior coronavirus enters our bodies, these synthetic spike proteins that our bodies have already developed will help fight back against the infection.
Dr. Lee Makowski - from North Eastern University - published a hypothesis in the journal of viruses saying that the spike protein in the wild coronavirus might mimic proteins that, amongst other things, regulate blood vessels and the formation of blood clots
  • That spike proteins we are making via contact with the virus or vx((een are mimicking proteins that regulate other cellular structures in our body.
    • It is for that reason that these proteins wreak havoc in our bodies and trigger certain responses that might not have been foreseeable by those that do not have a complete understanding of these spike proteins and the role they play in both the wild virus and vx((eens.

The effects caused by the shedding of spike proteins

Several cases of women bleeding during very extended periods of time (3-6 weeks), others bleed with heavy clotting & what they call “tissues”, others don’t bleed at all
Some menopausal women suddenly started bleeding again
Pregnancies that became severely compromised and ended in miscarriages - women's hormonal system is very delicate. To get pregnant and stay pregnant is an enormously complex system. We know that that the spike protein antibody cross-reacts with Cinsiden 1 and 2 - proteins absolutely essential for the placenta, for fertilization and maintaining a pregnancy
Some men have been experiencing blood clots, scrotum & prostate swelling
Stephanie’s Crohn's disease started to flare up after several years of not presenting any issues, just after attending a venue with a high concentration of vaccinated people. 

Information from the inside

One of the founders of the mRNA technology (which is used for Pfizer and Moderna vx((eens) - Luigy Warren- tweeted:The vx((een shedding of the spike proteins is real. But it is occurring in small amounts that is mostly not harmful.”. 
Later twitter suspended his account saying it was alleged “fake news” - another example of censorship by Big Media in the pursuit of a political agenda. 
Warren then put out a statement saying: “The tweet you locked me out for is correct. I am the inventor of the technology of which Moderna was founded. Look it up. I think I know what I am talking about.” 

How can this shedding be transmitted and assimilated by others

The hypothesis is that it can be airborne, saliva, urine, seminal fluid, feces and possibly even flatus transmitted.
Given that proper scientific studies haven’t been performed yet, this is mostly speculation based on the lived experiences of those who come forward with stories related to this topic.

How should we protect ourselves (both the vaccinated and unvaccinated)

What is fundamental is to strengthen your immune system
If you have had the vx((een, a bit of body cleansing/detox is also very recommended. 
Intermitent fasting:
It is one of the most powerful interventions for overall health. It really helps detox the whole body.
Intermittent fasting is very helpful in triggering autophagy, which is the body's way of cleaning out damaged cells in order to regenerate newer, healthier ones. 
Ayurveda considers intermittent fasting to be “the supreme medicine”. 
If you want to take fasting seriously then consult a practitioner and make sure you are guided through it, it is a tremendously powerful and yet delicate process. It needs to be done the right way. 
Not recommended for those who are excessively losing weight or suffering any sort of anemia. Pregnant women should also abstain from fasting.
Sauna:
Sauna allows for deep sweating which helps in the detoxification of the body. 
If a sauna is accessible to you, doing it 3-5 times a week is recommended. 
Get in the Sun:
Vitamin D strengthens your immune system, it heals and supports all areas of your body.
Vitamin D obtained naturally from the sun is much more powerful than what any supplement can provide
Side-note: sunbathing the soft tissue areas of your privates (testicles and breasts) is very helpful to deal with cancer’s that are lodged nearby. Sunlight triggers the production of healing hormones and allows for the creation of a protective layer. 
Get your lymph moving:
These spike proteins - and any viruses for that matter - tend to go and lodge in the lymph because it is responsible for removing toxins.  
A lot of times the lymph system gets sluggish and doesn’t move much. Therefore:
Doing lymph massage, vibration plates, dry brushing, yoga (even deep belly breath only), self-oil massage (Abhyanga) 
Do Nasya every day (along with Abhyanga):

Nasya is the practice of sniffing a drop of ayurvedic medicated nasal oil (Nasika) up your nose. 

The nose is the gateway to the skull, so it creates a coating in the nasal passages so that toxins, environmental pollutants, viruses, pathogens and bacteria don’t get in. 

Things that you can internally take:
Dandelion Tea - Is an excellent source of potassium. Potassium helps the kidney filter toxins more effectively and improves blood flow. The polysaccharides in dandelion are known to reduce stress on the liver and support its ability to produce bile. 
Fulvic acid - is believed to help block reactions in the body that cause allergy symptoms. It also seems to have anti-inflammatory properties along with immune-stimulating and antioxidant effects.
Smriti herb - "smriti" in sanskrit means memory. This powerful herb helps enliven the genetic memory within the body that promotes the appropriate functioning of all organ systems and propitiates intense healing.

The Yoga of Time, Vedic Medicine & The Veda Mandala | Prashanti de Jager, Master Herbalist #059

Prashanti de Jager Podcast Banner

Prashanti’s clinical forte and specialty is his ability to use many of the “Vedic sciences” - Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology, Yoga, Vaastu (Vedic Architecture), Advaita and Dhanurveda (the yoga of warfare) to analyze, diagnose, treat and empower his clients.

The episode is for the “Vedic nerds”, as we explore with a scientifically eccentric perception, the richness that the Laws of Nature: The Veda, has to offer.
Prashanti has unique capabilities to perceive the subtle in all areas of life, as well as an expanded spectrum of awareness on the true depths of wisdom traditions.

About Our Guest: Prashanti de Jager

Prashanti’s clinical forte and specialty is his ability to use many of the “Vedic sciences” - Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology, Yoga, Vaastu (Vedic Architecture), Advaita, Dhanurveda (the yoga of warfare), too analyse, diagnose, treat and empower his clients. 

He shares these potent vedic sciences through The Veda Mandala.

This powerful “confluence of factors” is comparable to having a session with ten different wellness guides all at once. After earning many degrees from the University of Michigan in the fields of Math, Engineering, Biophysics and Emergency Medicine, and studying numerous adjunct healing modalities, Prashanti moved to India in 1990 to study Advaita and the Vedic Sciences.

Prashanti De Jager holding a herb in the Himalayas

On his travels, he experienced the very good fortune of a decade of sitting at the feet of epic paragons like Sri H.W.L. Poonja, Annamalai Swami, Lakshman Swami, the Dalai Lama, Urgen Tulku, Jamgong Kontrul Rinpoche, Hart de Fou, Kaviraj Vaidya Nanakchand Sharma, as well a dozens of eminent Yogis, Priests, Scientists and many truly empowered Grand Mothers.

Traveling all over India training as a Yogi, Clinician and an Ethnopharmacologist, he settled in Lucknow, North India, where he started to treat hundreds of locals and foreigners that came to him with a vast number of health issues.

To ensure high-quality formulas for his clients, he started an Ayurvedic herb company in 1993 in North India where he grew, wild-crafted and processed the herbs by hand. As the reputation for these herbs grew worldwide, a beautiful team/Vision called ‘Organic India’ emerged to serve the demand in a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable way.

Besides being a Founder of Organic India, he also is a trustee on other projects like the Dunagiri Foundation Trust, instilling sustainable herbal wild-crafting amongst thousands of tribals in central India and also in the fragile ecosystems of the High Himalayas.

He edits & writes articles for numerous magazines and his own books, and teaches classes on herbs and Ayurvedic Medicine around the world.

He is one of Tulsi’s (holy basil) humans.

a.k.a. Haldi Baba (Haldi being turmeric) - Prashanti wrote one of the most comprehensive - spirit world view, on turmeric. “Turmeric The Ayurvedic Spice of Life”


In this Episode we Discuss:

Sahanau Vavatu

ॐ सह नाववतु। Om, May we all be protected

सह नौ भुनक्तु। May we all be nourished

सह वीर्यं करवावहै। May we work together with great energy

तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु May our intellect be sharpened (may our study be effective)

मा विद्विषावहै। Let there be no Animosity amongst us

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥ Om, peace (in me), peace (in nature), peace (in divine forces)

Understanding the root value and spirit centric worldview of Sanskrit

Tripura Darshan (Three worldview)
  1. Spirit centric
  2. Energy centric
  3. Mass centric
Beginning of the Rig Veda
4 levels of Vat (Truth)
  1. Para-vak - the ultimate reality in the form of vibrations, of which thought and words are rough representations. It is the absolute expressed as transcendental           sound (Mantras come from here). 
  2. Pashyanthi vak - here you can have the spirit centric worldview. This is where creativity and genius are. The Heart is dominant.
  3. Madhyama vak - truth touches our minds. The middle between subtle thought and gross speech. The Throat is dominant.
  4. Vaikhari vak - truth touches our lips. Most people are here. Where words come out the mouth in the form of gross physical sound.

Vaastu Sastra

The Vedic science of harmonious design.

Vaastu is fundamental, it is at the base of the Veda Mandala because from Vaastu you can create every other science.

Vaca (calamus acorus)

To read our article on the many uses & benefits of Vaca click HERE
acorus calamus (vaca) roots

Two types of memory

  1. Episodic memory: centered around experiences and events
  2. Semantic/Terrain memory: memory of general knowledge (facts, ideas, concepts and the general meaning of things).

The importance of Dinacharya (daily routine)

The importance of waking up before the sunrise
The value that there is in watching the sunrise.
Surya Traataka:
Various practices to honour the sun.
Starting and watching the rising sun.
The frequency of light that a ghee lamp emits directly impacts the third eye.

Sunrise in Nepal

The Eight Limbs of Yoga

Yama (attitudes toward our environment)
Niyama (attitudes toward ourselves)
Asana (physical postures)
Pranayama (restraint or expansion of the breath)
Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses)
Dharana (intention & intent): Tejas (Fire, energy, brilliance) is developed in this sixth limb.
Dhyana (meditation)
Samadhi (complete integration)

Vaidyas (Ayurvedic Physicians)

Balaraj Maharishi
He sent Prashanti to Tirumula around 1993 to find a very special majik plant and he found it!

Dr. Triguna
Famous pulse physician.

Siddhis - Divine Human Capabilities

How do humans achieve siddhis?
  • Past lives influencing siddhis.
  • Sampradaya - the core of the lineage that has sampradaya has a living goddess (vidya / supreme knowledge) at it’s core. Vidya comes from Pashyanthi vak.
  • Mantras call the Devis (divine beings) and Mahavidyas (10 aspects of mother divine)
  • Bhutas (any encapsulated intelligence with an agenda or energetic force) give siddhis. e.g. Nazi Germany was a Bhuta.
  • Bhutas hide in the life of your own identity. 
Studying elemental bhutas by going close to bush/forest fires and storms.
  • Studying how nature's elements are Beings.
Trigunas (Three Prime Attributes): Sattva (Purity), Rajas (Stimulation), Tamas (Inertia)

Rare, Endangered and Divine Healing Herbs

Divya Aushadhis (Divine Herbs)
Dronagiri Mountain in Tibetan Nitti Valley (where Hanuman picked up a mountain to heal wounds).

Once you're in Joshimath, you go left to Badrinath , to the right you go to Tibetan Nitti Valley. Half way up that valley to the right is Dronigeri. You can see at the top of the mountain Hanuman scooped a trench off the side.

Sanjeevani Booti - the herb Hanuman used to heal Lakshman according to the Ramayana. 
Astavarga -  8 High Himalayan deep nectar rejuvenation orchid herbs.

Very rare and hard to find. Prashanti is probably the only person in the world which produces a formula close to Astavarga (he calls it “Orchid Ojas”).

Hanuman holding mountain
Using “substitutes” for rare herbs.

Prashanti created a whole new metric scale to grade herbs and create the “Astavarga formula.”

The corruption & lies in the Ayurvedic herb industry.
The Processing of Herbs (Shodasha Samskāra):
  • Some of these herbs hate metal, e.g. Amalaki hates metal.
  • Preparing herbs after “lighting up” your chakras and chanting mantras.
  • Preparing herbs in the presence of or nearby Guru.
“The ultimate medicine made, is the medicine maker.”Becoming medicine via medicine making.

Tulsi (Holy Basil)

Prashanti’s huge contribution to Tulsi
For more information on the many healing properties of Tulsi read our article HERE

Turmeric & building resilience in the body

When Prashanti “received the codes” for Turmeric.

Eating 30-40g of turmeric (haldi/haridra) & 10-20g of ashwagandha per day.

Difference between dried and fresh turmeric and ginger.

The myth that black pepper increases the absorption of turmeric. 

Trikatu (ginger, long pepper, and black pepper), especially ginger, is the spice that increases the absorption of turmeric.

To read more on Turmeric and its many health benefits click HERE 

Trikatu (Three Pungents)

  1. Ginger - Sattvic - To read more on Ginger click HERE.
  2. Pippali (Piper Longum) - bonfire rasayana (elixir) that has heat but also is a rasayana. It is agni (fire) and amrit (nectar) at the same time.
  3. Marica (Black Pepper) - the most rajasic (stimulating) of them all. Rajas agitates itself to decay. 

Herbal Formulas

Single Herbs vs Formulas.
3 herbs in a formula are great // 5-to-10-ingredients formulas can be challenging for the body.
  • More than three ingredients in a formula - can create confusion. 
But when you cook all together, even 50 ingredients, you can make it sama (healthy and compatible). e.g. preparations like Avaleham (paste), or Amrit/Aristam (herbal wine).

How to apply the principles of Ayurveda to every given situation

3 main concepts:
  • Kala - time.
  • Desa - place.
  • Patra - lineage.
E.g. Treating a 19-Year-Old San Francisco Goth Using the Principles of Ayurveda: Through fashion advice, advicing to wake up at 3am to go party and herb consumption. 
Diversity and curvature vs. straight line.
All the polarities coming into the singularity.
All chakras being in the heart chakra. 

The Puranas

  1. Exegesis - the methodology of how you read or interpret any ancient text or book. 
  2. Repetition - you see it all over the place.
  3. Hyperbolae - e.g. “If you stand on your head for 3 hours you will be enlightened”, said like that to remember, do not take it literally.
3 recurring themes in the Puranas (“The Old Things / Old Ones”)
  1. Tulsipurifies family karma. Points to the epi-genetic qualities of tulsi. Genes don’t change, but their expression changes.
  2. Sirsasana (Head stand).
  3. Ēkādaśi.
    • Literally means 11.
    • 11th lunar day, 2x/month.
    • There is one Purana all on Ēkādaśi.
    • Fasting not only fasting from food, but from the mundane, the heavy - feast on the light, energy and shakti.
    • It’s a great way to cyclically fast.

Prashanti’s Veda Mandala

The Veda Mandala - bringing all vedic sciences together, protecting their essence.
5 Principles for evolving:
  1. Pattern interrupt - e.g. rising run, winter solstice. 
  2. New frame of reference
  3. Trim story
  4. Curate memory 
  5. Shift identity.
Allowing for a truer understanding of “inauspicious” times.
The Veda Mandala
Shamshan sadhana
Practicing it at midnight on the ghats (river banks) of Varanasi.
When the world gets destroyed, Rudra (Lord Siva) maintains Varanasi. 

The Power of Tejas

Tejas =   

It signifies creative will power, splendor and brilliance. At the same time being a very grounded, intentional and spirited force. 

India, Powerful Holy Places and Herbs

Certain places where reality gets thin. Then and there you can see so much truth.

The holiest of holy temples in Arunachala, Tiruvannamalai and Manikarnika ghat in Varanasi.

Tirumala, an area around a Visnu temple (Sri Venkateswara Swamy Vaari Temple) which is the most visited and wealthiest temple in the world.

Up the mountain from the city of Tirupati.

The Ramban herb - “Rama’s Arrows”
  • Prashanti was told by Balaraj Maharishi to find, identify and process it. Around 1993.
  • Not mentioned anywhere.
  • Prashanti was selling one leaf for $10-100.
  • Incredibly nootropic (cognitive enhancing). 
The Blue Lotus
  • Vertical element of integration.
  • Makes you feel like you are walking two inches off the ground. 
Kushta (Saussurea lappa)
  • Rasa - Bitter, pungent, sweet
  • Virya - Hot
  • Vipaka - Pungent.
  • Gunas - Dry, light, sharp.
  • The brother of Soma. Also going extinct. A high Himalayan Angelica.
Blue Lotus Flower

More on Powerful Vedic Wisdom

Haasta - the combination of Vastu, Jyotish and Ayurveda.
Non-linear knowledge: 

Prana in the Himalayas and the grace, you start receiving non-linear knowledge. 

Covid being part of a major transition that the world will undergo in the next 20 years. 

Prashanti’s definition of Dharma
The Yoga of Time
Solstice:
  • When the sun stops. “Sun stillness.”
  • Siva, masculin.
Winter solstice:
  • A time to dive deep and shift your identity, and then take action and dharma.
  • Adaptogenic herbs, build your ojas (Article on Ojas VV).
  • Take Ashtavarga around the start of winter solstice. Then don’t have to take it for the rest of the year.
  • Trees don’t dry out, they shift their juice from their periphery to their core.
  • Taking herbs.
Equinox:
  • Shakti, feminine.
  • Half way between the solstices.
  • When the energy is it’s fastest.
  • Power, shakti.

The Magic, Mystery & Science of Water | Isabel Friend #042

Vital Veda Podcast Banner: The Benefits, Magic, Mystery & Science of Water

You may think water is a simple molecule, such a basic element, but the truth is, Water is NOT simple. At all.

Water is actually profoundly complex and mysterious.

We know very little about water. It behaves anonymously, unlike anything in the universe. And its functions completely baffles scientists.

We are made of water. We are 99.92% water molecularly.

We need a strategy to optimise our water!

Post  Fukushima and mid-fracking. The water that most of the population are drinking, showering in and made up of is very low in quality. Stripped of it’s nature, structure and life-force.

We are literally bodies water living on a body of water. You better get to know yourself.

About Isabel Friend

Isabel Friend has a borderline obsessive fascination with water.

She teaches full time about water and facilitates ceremonies and host retreats about water all around the world.

She’s a public speaker, certified nutritionist, Mystic dance and Integral yoga teacher and Reiki master with a passion for understanding the power of earth-based living and 5 element integration.

She has also trained extensively in aromatherapy and herbalism.

With 10 years of experience in the field of health, her wellness philosophy centres around the idea of being close to nature.

She is a nerd who is passionate about bringing modern scientific understanding together with ancient ancestral wisdom in a way that grounds primal living strategies into our 21st century lifestyles.


In this Episode we Discuss:

Water is Profoundly Mysterious to Modern Science

  • The science of water completely baffles scientists because it is profoundly mysterious to modern science.
  • How water holds the answer to life’s mysteries.

64 Anomalies of Water

Water can push through hard surfaces like concrete.

Water floats as it becomes more dense.

Unlike any substance. Usually when a substance becomes more dense, it sinks!

Quantum Coherence Anomaly

Water molecules under extreme physical pressure  can arrange themselves into super small hexagonal states around a ring and enter into a Quantum tunnelling state - It can pass through SOLID walls - bilocate, trilocate but also sextolocate - the same water molecule can occupy more than 6 locations at once! Simultaneously present in multiple spaces.

This is similar to what is in the vedas are Siddhis (divine superhuman capabilities).

Water has the ability to communicate with water all around the world.

How we lack the full spectrum of elemental nourishment

All the 5 Elements (PanchaMahabhutas: Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) are in Water.

The Water Element is Feminine

Water is the sacred communion of masculine and famine - Hydrogen and Oxygen.

The Fourth Phase of Water

  • The water that has a highly structured matrix of hexagonal clusters of water molecules.
  • Bulk water that is in formation, thus stores information.
  • Drinking, eating and absorbing fourth phase water shifts experience of hydration and therefor of being human altogether.
  • The crystalline state of water - it acts like a crystal.

Crystal

If it’s in a formation, they can store information.

Functions of a crystal - Absorb, Store, Eat, Amplify and Transduce.

Cosmic Phases of Water

Water inside star nurseries that give birth to stars and inside stars themselves.

Why it is so important to consume structured water

  • Influences the way our body generates energy (ATP).
  • Structured water allows more effective communication between our cells.
  • Longevity and DNA health - It determines the shape, the integrity and the electro-magnetic field of the DNA and the tele mores in the DNA.

Dr. Alexis Carrel

A a French surgeon and biologist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1912 for pioneering vascular suturing techniques.

He showed the cell itself is immortal. It can live as long as it’s extra-cellular environment is optimal.

The Fifth Phase of Water

Ageing is Essentially the Body Drying Up

Is your body optimally retaining water?

You are not going to get hydrated and lubricated by drinking more water, it has to be a structured so that it going into the cells.

The Importance of Lubrication

High quality lipids and fats to maintain the cellular membranes and fluids so that out body can absorb specific beneficial kinds of hydrogen and water.

3 Kinds of Hydrogens

  1. Tritium - or hydrogen-3 is a rare and radioactive isotope of hydrogen
  2. Protium
  3. Deuterium - a heavier hydrogen. Double the mass of regular (Protium) hydrogen. If our channels our inadequately lubricated, we get sluggish etc.

The Importance of Proper Hydration for Mental Health

Only 20% of our brain function is neuro-chemical and 80% electrical. What is the electrical capacity of your osmotic flow? That is what influences mental health. And that as is influenced by proper hydration.

Phase Angle as form the measure electrical capacity of osmotic flow and hydration.

Dr. Van Annroy - A neurologist and psychologist who addresses hydration first. Even in cases as severe as bipolar disorder.

Cancer can be traced back to intra-cellular hydration.

Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 Oils

The First Signs of Dehydration

  • Brain fog
  • Sleepiness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • General irritability

Thirst is one of the last signals that you are hydration.

Fascia

A layer which covers and surrounds blood vessels, muscles and nerves.

  • Around 80% water. The other 20% is proteins and collagen.
  • Your fascia water is high structured. It is a breathing, moving web of structured gel.
  • One of your body’s main hydraulic pumps, the way your body delivers hydration to eery cell, and it delivers electrical signals faster than the nerves at the speed of light! (700 miles/hour).
  • Healthy fascia is essential to transport hydration.

The Epidemic of Chronic Dehydration

Within 5 minutes of drinking water, it becomes your blood

How to Structure (Thus Optimise) Your Water

  • Think how nature does it, then mimic nature.

Spring Water - Harvesting your own or getting it delivered

  • Go to a spring and harvest your own spring water. (See Resources below how to find a spring near you).
  • Ask the elders where a nearby spring is if you cannot find one.
  • So alive, energised and structured that makes you feel energised.

You can replace your entire body value water after drinking 5 gallons or drinking water for one month.

Hot Springs

  • Mineral dense hard water.
  • Good occasionally and medicinally.

Balneology

The practice of partaking of the waters. Water therapy.

Traditional hot spring spas for therapeutic use.

Filtering & Structuring Your Tap Water

To clear out toxins, neutralise chlorine, giving it prana.

Ways to Structure Water

  • Movement - especially vortex methods.
  • Near infrared radiation.
  • Magnetic.
  • The present of hydrophilic (water loving) surfaces like crystals.

How to Power a City’s Entire Electrical Grid from It’s Plumbing Alone

Spiralled copper pipes.

“Get a Filter, or Become the Filter”
~ Commonsense Proverb

BPA Free Plastic

BPA Free plastic has more Oestrogenic Agents than plastic with BPAs.

Reverse Osmosis

Dead water.

Alkaline Water

  • What makes the water alkaline? Does it have ionic minerals or has it been electrocuted by an ioniser machine to separate the hydrogen.
  • Drinking alkaline water long term hampers the digestion and causes excess detoxification of good tissues.
  • Testing the body’s pH level.

We Are Still Aquatic Beings

As a foetus, we had gills.

“We carry oceans within our selves in order to be able to adapt to walk on land.”
~ Isabel Friend

Marine Plasma

  • The primordial soup. An oceanic broth of everything necessary to sustain life that contains the entire periodic table of elements, DNA, RNA, fatty acids, the entire spectrum of genetic information going back to the primordial soup.
  • Marine life swims thousands of miles every year to get to this in the sea.
  • Found in a few different vortexes in the ocean.

The Origin of Water

Thermo-Haline Circulation

The oxygen we breathe is coming from the depths of the ocean.

All the elements are born from water.

Further benefits of Structured Water

  • You need 20-50% less water when using structured water in agriculture - less pesticides, healthier minerals in soil, healthier plants.
  • Food can be grown anywhere - we can put an end to world hunger.
  • Renewable energy - if the pipes to transfer water were switched to pipes implemented with vortex technology to make it spiral - it could generate renewable and sustainable energy. You can get pipes like this from AliveWater.com

Considerations and Care for Cancer

Below are a few considerations for those on the journey to helping heal cancer.

1. Slow Down, Cancer Is Mostly Not An Emergency

  1. Firstly, in most cases, cancer is not an emergency. Although diagnostics and specialists may urgently rush you into treatment, the truth is, the cancer has probably been in your physiology for quite some time before the diagnosis.STOP. Ground yourself. Establish yourself. Explore avenues of how to treat your unique self. Seek various specialists and health practitioners. Don’t rush into any treatment. Don’t delay, but take action efficiently and gracefully. Inappropriate medical treatment is a worldwide crisis.

The prestigious John Hopkins Hospital conducted a study investigating what percentage of medical care is unnecessary.

21% was the average!

They asked a random group of physicians who broke it down in medications, diagnostic tests, surgeries and procedures.

When you have people in the industry saying that one fifth of all the services are unnecessary, that is a crisis!

Questions to Ask Your Oncologist About Chemotherapy

Ask these questions in your initial consultations as well as when they say “we are getting really good results/sponsors for this drug or suggest a treatment.”

  1. What are the chances this will cure me. – not make me feel better, not make the tumour shrink for a little while, not make me live 6 months longer.
  2. What is the known death rate for chemotherapy used. – 1-2% – 10-15% are dying from the treatment.
  3. Would you give this therapy to your family or take your self.

2. Pleasant and Blissful Mind, Senses and Consciosuness

Reduce stress. Remove fear. Remind your body it is safe. You have infinite potential to heal. Your body is miraculously capable. Directly experience your Pure Absolute Self which is free from disease on a regular basis to give your body a “free zone” and reinforce the memory of That in your cells.

This is known as “Smriti

3. Team of Health Practitioners

Work with a multitude of health practitioners. From oncologists to natural health practitioners to whatever healer  you resonate with. All working as a Team for your wellness.

4. Drop the War Mentality

A cancer cell is the loneliest cell in the body. It doesn’t know if it is part of your organism anymore. It literally feels like the last man alive. So it has to reproduce. Fast.

When you recognise and appreciate the cancer cell, then it says “wow, let me drop the over-ambitious drive, let a stem cell replace me.” The tumour goes into apoptosis (programmed cell-suicide).

“I don’t need to have this drive for life, the organism has a drive for life now. I can now be in harmony with the biology. This is truely what I wanted.”

5. Most cancers are a metabolic disease

One of the best ways to activate autophagy and apoptosis is fasting. There is a multitude of ways to fast (langhana), and I recommend you work with a quality health practitioner to assist with fasting and diet for your unique self.

6. Precious and Potent Ayurvedic Herbs

Precious and Potent Ayurvedic Herbs are wise to boost the healing process.

They help restore the memory of perfect health (smriti), reduce tumour growths and metastasis, trigger your body’s healing mechanisms and optimise metabolic and immune health.

Panchakarma is also wise in most cases.

Is Your Morning Shower Toxic for Your Health?

Hot water opens the skins pores and allows the volatile toxic compounds that are abundant in tap water to be absorbed through the skin and lungs.

Lungs - there is plenty of space. Thus, it is a common place for ama (toxins and undigested food materials) to deposit and lodge.

The skin - the largest organ of the body with a large surface area where these toxins can directly enter the bloodstream without being processed by the liver.

This is why in Ayurveda, herbs are trans-dermally administered via medicated oils, pastes (lepams) etc. - to bypass the liver and effectively deliver medicine deep into the tissues.

You are now using organic cosmetics, soaps, shampoos etc., Great! but you are still flooding yourself with toxins that absorb into the blood and reap havoc throughout the body.

Chlorine and disinfection by products in your tap water irritate the mucous membranes, disrupt the skins microbial balance, clog the skins pores, strip the natural oils from your hair and create dry, itchy skin.

These volatile toxins also damage the structure of your home, imagine what they can do to your body!

The best way to prevent volatile compounds entering your blood stream during bathing is to install a whole home water filtration system.

Luckily my friend and genius, Dr Marc, has developed one of the best whole home water filtration + re-structuring systems on the planet.

You deserve the best. A whole home system can protect your family from harmful toxins and provide you with the life-force, prana filled water you deserve.
