Eat Right For A Healthy Life
Dr. Shashikant Patwardhan

Our diet is an essential factor for the formation of our body. It is clearly mentioned in an Ayurvedic classic ‘Charak Samhita’ that consuming improper diet in improper way is the main cause of ‘Disease’.

According to ‘Charak Samhita -“An appropriate and suitable diet in a disease is equivalent to hundred drugs and any quantity of drug hardly compares to good results in disease without following proper dietetic regimen”

Ayurvedic has mentioned following principles for living full span of life with perfect health.

Diet should be regulated taking into account the ‘Desha'(territory), ‘Kala’ (Season as well as time of the day) etc. On should be in a habit of taking all six ‘Rasa’ (tastes) in order to prevent nutritional deficiency disorders.

Time of consuming food : A person should take meal only when he feels hungry. Lunch should be taken early between 12 and 1P.M. this coincides with the peak Pitta period, Pitta is responsible for the digestion. Ayurveda recommends that the lunch should be the largest meal of the day. The supper should be lesser and lighter than lunch

Quantity of food : Generally half of the capacity of stomach should be filled with solids, th with liquids and rest kept empty for the free movements of body humors.

Sequence of consuming food :Madhur (sweet) rasa food like fruits are advisable to take in the bigining of meal, food with Amla and Lavana (sour and salty) rasa in the middle and Katu,Tikta,Kashay (bitter ,astringent and pungent) foods should be taken at the end of meal

Method of consuming food :

* Wash the face hands and feet before meal. Dine in an isolated neat and clean place in pleasant environment with the affectionate persons in sitting position.

* Food should be taken after complete digestion of previous one.

* Hard items should be consumed in the beginning followed by soft and liquids subsequently.

* Few sips of water is advised now and then while taking meal.

* Heavy substances are contraindicated after meals and should be avoided

* Consumption of excessive hot food leads to weakness. Cold and dry food leads to delayed digestion. Intake of food prepared by giving extra

heat leads to ‘Glani’. Hence consumption of such food should be avoided

Incompatible Food (Viruddha ahara):

Milk followed by fruits and vice versa.

Soar substance along with milk.

Milk with salt, horse gram, green gram & cow gram

General Rules about food consumption :

Walk a while after meal to help digestion

No travelling, exercise or sexual intercourse within one hour after meal.

Avoid meals when thirsty and water while hungry.

Avoid meals after exertion

Avoid meals when you are having no appetite.

Creating A Healthy Skin and Clearing Acne Naturally

Creating A Healthy Skin and Clearing Acne Naturally

Creating A Healthy Skin and Clearing Acne Naturally
By Lena Sanchez

Acne affects more than 20 million teenagers, and hundreds
of adults according to the AAD (American Academy of
Dermatology). It is the most common problem in the United
States. Many over the counter remedies exist and hundreds
of thousands of dollars are spent yearly on them. I have
come up with some inexpensive home remedies that work
perfectly well and are healthier for the skin.

ACNE Symptoms: Persistent, recurrent pimples or
skin blemishes on the skin. Acne is commonly found
on the face but can also occur on the chest, shoulder,
neck and upper portion of the back.

What is going on? Usually because of clogging of the
pores in the sebaceous hair follicles, from oils and dead
skin cells that build up bacteria in the blocked follicle,
thus causes inflammation in that area.

Prevention: Keeping the area clean, eating less fatty
foods and sugars will most times prevent acne.

Cleanse::

Cleanse (not scrub) your face at least twice daily with
a gentle natural anti-microbial herbal soap such as calendula
(Calendula officinalis), lavender (Lavandula officinalis)
for both treatment and prevention.

After cleaning, apply one drop of tea tree oil – a natural
anti-microbial – to each blemish. *For an overnight treatment
that will dry and heal, use a clay poultice, worn all night.
Use either green clay or bentonite as a base. (Can be
obtained at most health food stores). Combine 1 teaspoon
of clay with enough water to make a paste the consistency
of toothpaste. Mix in 3 drops of tea tree oil and apply to
blemishes. Rinse off with warm water in the morning.

Facial Steam:

Give yourself an herbal facial steam treatment twice a
week to gently and deeply clean pores. Into a heat-proof
bowl pour 1 quarts of boiling water over 2 tablespoons
of dried lavender, which is both and anti-microbial and
anti-inflammatory. Cover your head and the bowl with
a large bath towel, steam your face for 10 minutes,
taking care not to burn yourself with the steam.

Natural Alpha Hydroxy:

From your own kitchen comes a great natural alpha
hydroxy healer.
~ Wash well and put into a blender: 2 or 3 ripe
unpeeled pitted apricots,
~ 2 large or 3 medium sized fresh Strawberries
preferred, but frozen will work as well,
~ of a medium to large avocado (equivalent
to a 3″X 2″ piece,
~ 1 heaping tablespoon of honey.
Put in blender and liquefy until frothy. Apply to face,
leave on for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Rinse with warm herbal soapy water. Then
open a capsule of vitamin E and apply to face.

If leftovers, store in a glass jar for no more than
7 days. Use this facial twice weekly for soft
blemish free skin. To remove small wrinkles
leave on overnight.

Natural Blemish Healing Astringents:

Apply Lemon juice and let dry, apply as often as
you wish. Acts as an astringent and a healer. Lemon
has a drawing affect and will help heal blemishes as
well as prevent pores from becoming clogged. For
abscessed pores apply a piece of lemon peel directly
on the spot, skin side out. Can be left on up to three
hours.

My sister and I had this favorite thing to use as
teenagers.

Take 1 raw egg and 1 tablespoon of lemon
juice, whip until frothy and apply to skin, let dry then
wash off with herbal wash and cool water. Egg is a
great drawing healer. Do this two or three times
a week, will help keep your face free of blemishes
and blackheads. I have never experienced the black
heads and acne others have, could it be due to this
habit as a child and teenager and the fact that I
don’t ingest dairy foods?

Natural Preventions;

*Lotus Root tea two or three times a day will improve
blemishes.

Take 30 to 45 mg of zinc a day and Antioxidants helps
the regeneration of skin tissue!

If you, like me, tend to have very dry skin you have probably
spent lots of $$$ on lotions and potents that don’t
give lasting effects. Well I live in a very arid part of the
world, which does nothing to help my dry skin but
rather made it worse until I discovered something to
nourish and restore it:

Bath in a luxurious 15-minute bubble bath two to four times
a week with 1/4 cup Life Transfusion Liquid Ionic 84 Minerals.
Such softness and smoothness you can not imagine as
well as the relaxation it does for my mind If you don’t
know where to obtain liquid minerals
mailto:health@antibiotic-alternatives.com?subject=LocateIonicMin

Oriental medicine has a teachingblemishes or
pimples on the different body areas correspond to
specific organs or parts of the body before they actually
show up. Areas being:
A) Forehead indicates a problem with the intestinal tract.
B) Cheeks indicate lung or breast problems.
C) Nose indicates heart area.
D) Around the mouth indicate reproductively area.
E) Jaws indicate kidney area.
F) Upper back indicates lung area.
G) Shoulders indicate digestive area.
H) Chest indicates both lung and heart area.
Not to panic anyone but this only indicates that people
with blemishes/pimples should improve their overall
health as the road to ridding the body of blemishes!

A good start is by eliminating some of the dairy products
saturated animal fats and sugars, ad daily minerals and
vitamins. The medical profession for the most part, says
diet has nothing to do with it. Do you want to believe that?
There are far more studies and histories that prove otherwise!

Take charge of your own life and treatments for your
own optimum health.

Go out and get healthy Now!

pH miracle diet creator Robert Young

The pH diet is an innovative way to interact with food. The diet stresses the need for balance in the diet of alkaline and acid. This balance will help maintain a healthy flow through the bloodstream and keep cellular growth and development working at optimum levels. By lowering destructive acid levels with more alkaline a host of benefits can result, namely sustainable energy and good health. By following a simple regimen of balanced eating along with testing saliva for pH levels, one can achieve better health. The primary proponent of this alkaline diet is a man by the name of Dr. Robert Young.

Dr. Young heralds that a diet that is made up of 80% alkaline producing foods and 20% acid producing foods will allow people to achieve their healthier bodies and healthier lives. Through his research Dr. Young has surmised that the optimum pH level of the human body is 7.35. The pH spectrum is from 1 to 14 with 1 being highly acid and 14 being highly alkaline. With the body leaning toward moderately alkaline he contends that people can supplement their diets with more alkaline. Dr. Robert Young stresses that a body that is ravaged by excess acid will be more prone to serious health problems.

Dr. Robert Young began is studies in the early 70s at the University of Utah, where he studied biology and business. He earned as MS in nutrition, a DSc in science, a PhD in nutrition, and a ND from Clayton College of Natural Health during the 90s. Critics of Dr. Young question the validity of the school in which he received his degrees. The impact of his teachings is undeniable, he has helped many people obtain better health through a regimen of increased fruits and vegetables and more water consumption. He also stresses avoiding caffeine and alcoholic beverages to maintain vitality.

He is also a staunch supporter of pleomorphism, the belief in the ability of bacteria to morph shape dramatically or to mutate into many morphological forms. This idea has firmly split the microbiologist community into two schools of thought, the pleomorphists who support the claims; and the monomorphists who vehemently dispute them. In the current scientific community the monomorphic perspective of microbiology has emerged as the dominant theory. Modern medical science supports the monomorphic theory of cell development in which cells derive from previously formed cells of the same size and shape.

Dr. Young holds retreats where he educates the patrons on the Alkali Diet as well as a live red blood cell examination in an in-depth microscopy seminar. According to the National Council Against Health Fraud (http://www.ncahf.org/digest05/05-14.html#young) Dr. Robert Young pleaded guilty in 1996 to a misdemeanor charge of attempted medicine without a license. He was promised that the charge would be dismissed if he stayed clear for 18 months. Young allegedly had examined blood samples from two women who were seeking nutritional advice.

Critics of his live red blood cell examination conclude that his test have no scientific validity. Dr. Young counters his critics citing many papers and sources validating his claims including Understanding Acid-Base by Benjamin Abeloh, M.D., a lecturer of medicine at Yale school of Medicine and Clinical Physiology of Acid-Base by Burton David Rose, M.D., a Clinical Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

According to his website (http://www.phmiracleliving.com/press-kit.htm), Dr. Young is a member of the American Society of Microbiologists, the American Naturopathic Association, and an honorary member of the Connecticut Holistic Health Assocations, the Presidents Council at Brigham Young University. He is also a consultant for InnerLight, Inc. and an advisor to Dean Lawrence Carter at the Martin Luther King Chapel, Morehouse College. He was also honored by Professor Lawrence Carter at Morehouse College with an induction into the collegium of scholars as well as placed on the advisory board. He has been praised by Professor Carter for his efforts in understanding the balance of body chemistry and the effects of this balance on health.
