Protein supplements- side effects

Very recently, a patient came with very interesting symptoms.
He is only 26 years old. He is suffering from high blood pressure and migraine headaches for last two years. He is so young to have high BP. So, we decided to do complete body check up including his kidney function. Results are awaited. Meanwhile, I was very curious about his lifestyle and diet. I wanted to find out, how come a young person like him landed up with such bad health? I found out.....that more than two years ago, he joined a gymnasium. He wanted to develop muscles, just like the ones we see these days male film actors showing off on screen.
He was given three different protein powders, from three different companies. These he took for three months. Then he stopped going to gym. He gained a lot of weight after this. And, high BP as well as migraine headaches.
I just found out that creatine in the protein powers can cause high BP to those whose kidneys are weak already.
No one at the gym is bothered to know more about you...they just prescribe!
Food is so important...what we eat...we become! Don't take it lightly.

Bean coffee



I tried making coffee from soybeans. I soaked soybeans overnight. Next day, drained all the water. Use a tawa / flat pan to roast the beans on a very low heat. Took almost 90 minutes to get brown colour. We have to make sure, it is coffee brown colour, and not black or burnt. It can be also done in an oven. May take up to 4 hours, at 140 C or 300 F. I haven't tried it. Then cool and make powder. Use 1 or 2 tablespoon of this powder per one cup of water. Simmer, but not boil, gently for 5 minutes. Add soy milk. Sugar as required.

Taste like coffee but it is caffeine free. For some of us who still crave coffee taste and love aroma of coffee!

Tea & Coffee addiction

Since many months, we have given up drinking tea or coffee. We used to drink two cups of tea daily, with animal milk, for years. After stopping it completely, I observed a remarkable change in one of my symptom. I used to have diuretic effect of tea. That means, going to pass urine in large quantity after morning tea. Then gradually, I also observed that my bladder control was less. I had to frequently visit the loo. There was some nervousness also with it. Now, this is completely reversed. My bladder strength is now as good as I remember I had, as a child studying in school. Back to normal.
Tea or coffee is stimulating the adrenal gland each time we drink it. Our body interprets it as stress. Do we need this?
We take herbal tea every morning. No animal milk added.
It is made with Mint, Ginger, Fennel,Cardamom, Tulsi and chemical free jeggary added as required.

World Peace Diet - Book

A very nice book I am reading right now is called as 'World Peace Diet' by Dr. Will Tuttle. I was given a cd of the talks given by Dr. Tuttle at the Pea vs Pills workshop seminar. I listened to it, was very impressed and inspired. So, I searched the net, found the website and the book written by this author. It is very kind of the author to let us download the whole book in PDF format. I am reading it everyday. All that he writes makes sense. After being Vegan, I started noticing changes in my mind and body, totally unexpected. I decided to be a vegan with very open mind. The results are very good. Therefore, I started reading the book. The book describes a lot in detail about food's influence on us. The book can be downloaded from the website http://www.worldpeacediet.org/
My brother has become a vegan too. He has just heard me mentioning a bit about milk and violence to animals. He decided to give it a try. He stopped taking all the animal milk products. And from, literally day 1 onwards he saw change in his health. He had chronic sinusitis. His nose was always congested. That started clearing up. now he is free from this. He feels less tired. His memory is also improving. He is now completely convinced about health benefits of Vegan diet. He also told me that he used feel some kind of sadness & depression always at the back of his mind, all these years. He did not know what it was. Apparently everything going good in life, but this sadness, heaviness was always there. Now, that is gone. It is replaced by a sense of peace, calm. He has less aches & pains in his body.
Something for me...a doctor to learn!
Animal milk is Kaphajanya ( Mucus forming), according to Ayurveda also. So, when you stop taking animal milk, your exceesive kapha disturbance improves.
Drinking a sad animals milk can only make us sad.

Peas vs Pills workshop - being Vegan

I attended a very nice workshop on diet by Dr. Nandita Shah. It is called as 'Peas vs Pills' workshop. It is learning about being a vegan. I am already vegetarian. But I was not Vegan. Vegan is the term for those who do not take any animal products as food, which includes milk. I was taking all the animal milk products until recently. I was just like most of us, taking animal milk products traditionally. But I was not aware about the pain an animal has to go through to give us that milk. I was not fully aware that animal milk is indeed difficult to digest for adults. I decided to give it a try. I stopped taking all the animal milk products. It is more than a month. I am feeling comfortable, easy. No problems giving up ALL the animal milk products. This includes butter, cheese, curd, ghee ( Clarified butter ) etc.
In a way, I have disconnected my self from using animal products, where an animal may have been harmed. But, at higher level, in my consciousness, I feel very connected, for the first time to animal kingdom! I feel the same connection that I feel for the plant kingdom. I do feel an expansion in my consciousness by being so aware about the animals on this planet. I am happy to be a vegan now.

Flowers at Munnar

Flowers growing at Munnar: Carpet of colours!

The best place we liked in Kerala, was Munnar. It is a hill station. The temperature is so nice that most hotels don't have even a fan, forget the air condition machine! It is cool most of the time. It is famous for tea plantation. However, I was so delighted by the flowers! So many varieties! I brought some plants home, hoping it will survive Mumbai weather! This is the place, I wish to also visit again! Just to rest in the company of flowers! To breath oxygen! The fact that we make remedies from flowers, we are always on the look out for the flowers growing all over India. This is indeed one special place to see flowers.
Tea garden visit and tea factory was indeed very eye opening. We have stopped drinking tea or coffee since a few months. This had very positive effect on our health. We guess now why tea may be harmful for health, after checking the process of tea making at the factory. However, we are suspecting that green tea might be helpful for health. We are doing research on this.

Visit to the Sivananda Ashram




Our visit to the Sivananda Ashram at Neyyar Dam was very memorable. It is indeed a very calm place, away from the fast, busy world that we live in. It is at a height near the dam. The first picture shows me standing and some yoga pose statues in the background, near the dam. I wish to go there again for yoga vacation of 15 days in near future. The people at ashram were very helpful, friendly. I felt at home with them. The second picture shows Atul standing near the dam.

Kerala Impressions






We just returned home from a very happy trip to Kerala. Kerala, called as coconut country, is truly God's own country. I feel we are blessed to have such beautiful, calm, serene place to be here in India. Coconut trees, rice fields, spice gardens, tea gardens, babanas, clean beaches, vast lakes, cool mountains, elephants, flowers, Yoga, Ayurveda, fresh air....so many nice things to remember. I will be sharing more here later. For now, some pictures to see.

Tomato Story














These are two pictures of same tomato. The green tomato picture, taken with my cell phone camera THREE months ago. The same tomato, still ALIVE, picture taken by our Sony camera. Tomato looks a bit dehydrated, but no sign of disintegration!
This tomato was treated by energy remedies in the beginning, only once.After that, it it is still OK. It is kept on our clinic table. Daily, it is seen by visitors. It is kept at room temperature. This is the power of Energy Remedies! There were some tomatoes, refrigerated by me. After two weeks, showed all signs of disintegration! We plan to do more such experiments to show, how Energy Remedies can be used for prolonging the shelf life of food items.

PAS Machine From Russia

We have recently added PAS ( Pulse Analysis System ), a computerised pulse analysis of human body according to Acupuncture and Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis. Earlier, we used to take pulse diagnosis directly by feeling pulse with our own fingers. This machine is very helpful in judging the Vata / Pitta / Kapha component of our constitution. It also does Meridian analysis and tells about functioning of various organs of body. Also guidance about the mineral imbalance etc.
We will be also adding the AcuGraph Machine next week.
These machines are helpful in guiding about the diagnosis in a patient. After giving remedies, there is usually change in the reading.
It is intersting to note that some patients showed very high level of tension. Some showed stress on the heart condition. One patient showed Mg deficiency. Same day laboratory test also showed Mg deficiency in blood test.

POPPING CORN WITH YOUR CELL PHONE,.....SCARY

My dear friend, Patricia Meyer from California forwarded this video link to me. It shows how a few cell phones kept near corn can actually make 'pop corns' ! Watch it!

http://www.koreus.com/video/telephone-portable-mais-popcorn.html



We have been saying this for more than 10 years now. Using too much cell phone can actually 'cook' tissues in your body! This video is eye opener. Please do be careful about your cell phone use and how close you hold it on your body.

We are offering the cell phone device which may reduce some of the harmful effects of the cell phone.

Vaccination induced brain damage

This boy was only two month old, when he received his first dose of vaccination, called as DPT. He was unlucky, as he reacted badly to the vaccine. The vaccine caused massive brain damage. He is now six year old. Taking flower remedies since 4 months. He had large tonsils. He was advised surgery. He gets convulsions often. His intake of food was very less. His recognition of sounds was very less. His ability to express emotions by making any gesture or sound was hardly there.
There is much improvement in his condition. He is able to sit without support now. Stands with support for hours now. Claps while other children clap. Expresses joy or fear. If left alone in room, he makes sounds to call people. Eats very very well. No more enlarged tonsils. Convulsions less than before. He used bang his head against any object. Now he has forgotten that. Healing continues.....We are not sure how much of the brain function we can revive with the help of flower energy remedies...time will tell.

Monsoon is here already! but no earthen fragrance!



Last week, it started raining. We thought it was just pre-monsoon showers. But on the night of the 7th June, it did rain heavily. Once again, our area was flooded.


I was particularly trying to smell the earth! But, no sweet fragrance of earth with new, fresh rain! I was so disappointed. How can there be any fragrance? We have not left an inch uncovered! Every day, this city is adding tons of cement on the surface of earth! The earth cannot breath! It feels suffocated! Therefore, no smell. I feel sad. No mitti ki mehek and no dancing in the rain!


The other day I visited many plant nurseries, as I wanted to buy earthen pots for our little city garden. Almost all nurseries had only very expensive plastic pots. The plants, I guess love to be in earthen pot, so that the mud/mitti can breath!


Mud, Mitti, earth...disappearing from urban scene. I miss it far too much! I was brought up in an environment of huge garden and many trees in the surrounding area. I miss all this year after year in the city which has lost touch with nature and nurture!

Mangoes........





Finally more than 700 Mangoes we got from our tree this year! Mango are very sweet. Excellent quality. We all had great time watching it grow on the tree. The tree was a great attraction to kids this year as they were constantly making attempts to catch a mango or two. Kids were coming well equipped with a long stick, may be stones! Early morning, first thing to do was to look out in the garden for fallen mangoes! Finally removing most of the mangoes was a big task, took two whole days of labour.
We are looking forward to repeat this experiment next year also.

Mango tree in full bloom!




We are lucky to have a mango tree at the Healin' Temple. It is large size. It did flower only once many years ago, and yielded mangoes that year. After that, we don't know what happened to the tree. We did not see any flowering. Perhaps, we guessed that tree needed some flower remedies! We tried some! We gave the flower remedy combination to the tree! And see, this year! The tree is full of the bloom! And we have already started eating small mangoes from the tree recently! All organic mangoes taste good!
Flower energy remedies do work. No placebo effect here!

Lord Dhanvantari at Healin' Temple




OM DHANVANTARAYE NAMAHA
'I bow down to Lord Dhanvantari'
This is the prayer offered. The statue is kept near the entrance, in the north-east corner.
Dhanvantari (also Dhanwantari, Dhanvanthari) (धन्वंतरी) is an avatar of Lord Vishnu from the Hindu tradition. He appears in the Vedas and Puranas as the physician of the gods (devas), and the controller (god) of Ayurvedic medicine. Lord Dhanvantari was an early Indian medical practitioner and one of the world’s first surgeons. The worshippers do pray to Lord Dhanvantari asking him for improved or good health for themselves and/or others.
May God bless us all with good health!

O2 Zone






Last week, we went to a beautiful place called as Khanvel. It is about three hours drive from Mumbai. About 25 km from there, we drove to this lovely village called as Dudhni. Here, we went boating on Daman Ganga river just an hour before sunset. The place looked so majestic. Cool air. Water. Expanse of the place around was very mesmerising! I call this time as O2 time. It feels so good to breathe clean air! Stay quiet and listen to Nature sounds!

Zeenews Program

Zeenews channel showed an entire episode of 30 minutes on Healing Power Of Flower Remedies. The response was very good. It created a lot of awareness amongst people about gentle ways of healing. When I get the video, I will upload it here some parts of it.

Yaga classes already started....it is the best way of 'Body Meditation'!

A nice poem by Kabir....thought to write it down here.

Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O Friend ! go not there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus,
and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty.
Sant Kabir

Ashoka Flowers

The last weekend was spent at my brother's very nice organic farm at Umergaon. This is the picture of Ashoka flowers. Right now, it is in full bloom. It is called as Saraca Indica. A very popular ayurvedic medicine is prepared from this tree, called as Ashokarista.
We use the Ashoka flower remedy for persons, who are experiencing very deep seated sadness. For dark depression, grief, aversion to do anything in life- this flower remedy may help. Ashoka in sanskrit means without grief.

Flame Of the Forest

Come March and Spring begins. So starts the flowering time for the Flame of the Forest! As it appears like a flame in the forest by its colour! It is originally an Indian Tree. Also known as Parrot tree because the petals look like a beak of a parrot. In sanskrit is called as Palaash. Or in Gujarati, we call it Kesudo! This is the special flower for orange colour for the festival of Colour Holi. Flowers have three petals and it is believed that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh reside in this tree. Brahmans believe it is a sacred tree, call it as 'Brahma Vriksh' ,and do use this tree in Ceremony and prayers.
As a flower Essence: It is an enhancer for public speakers, who need to improve the timing of their elocution along with better co-ordination between thought and speech.

International visitors to Healin' Temple


Healin' Temple is attracting many visitors from around the world. Here is the picture showing Barbara ( Yamuna ) Smith from Australia. We met her in 1992 in Australia at the International Flower Essences Conference. She remembered us after all these years and made it a point to connect again with us while she visited India. On the right is Thrity Engineer from UK. We spent a day sharing all the healing experiences with our patients.
