One of the beautiful aspects of Ayurveda is the concept of shad rasa, or the six tastes.  Ayurveda says that each food contains at least one of the six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. It is important for us to get all six tastes in our diet.  Rasa is the first short-term action on the body when we put food, drink, or herbs in our mouth.  Each taste has its own unique actions on the body. I will post a series of blogs on the six tastes and how they function.

Madhu rasa, or the sweet taste in Ayurveda seems to the most favorite for many people. These shad rasa correspond to various parts of the tongue.  Ayurveda statesit’s good to start a meal with the sweet taste as it’s the first taste on the tongue.  Now you have an excuse to eat dessert first!

I watched some wonderful movies over the summer with “ocean” themes and one was with Robert Redford called All is Lost. The entertainment value was good but it also made a statement about Man’s interference with Nature and how nature can strike back. I love films like All is Lost, Master and Commander, in which the imperial navy visits the Galapagos Islands and “Kon Tiki,” a story about a 4,000 mile trek across the ocean, because they show the unspeakable beauty and power of the world’s great oceans. Can humans actually destroy them?  Continue reading

How To Heal An Inguinal Hernia Naturally — WITHOUT SURGERY

Holistic Inguinal Hernia Remediation

INTRODUCTION

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 11.39.51 AM

IMPORTANT CAVEAT:
This alternative, holistic approach toward hernia remediation is applicable only to those inguinal hernia cases that have been evaluated by a competent physician who is experienced in this particular specialty.

If an inguinal hernia is in jeopardy of strangulation, then surgery may be the only intervention that will successfully repair the hernia site.  Likewise, if a hernia is irreducible over the long term and adhesions form, surgery may be the only alternative.

Self-diagnosis and self-treatment of an advanced or serious inguinal hernia is not recommended because of the potential serious consequences to both abdominal and overall health.

Regardless of the holistic approach utilized, it is highly advisable that a qualified healthcare professional, with direct experience in inguinal hernia remediation, be involved in the formulation and monitoring of any long-range treatment plan.

Did Robin Williams’ humor mask his disease?

Robin Williams’ Laughter Masked a Deadly Disease

PILOT

When someone as sparklingly witty as Robin Williams commits suicide — as the actor, once named the funniest person alive by Entertainment Weekly, apparently did last night — our first reaction is disbelief at the incongruity. Perhaps it shouldn’t be. Psychologists believe that some styles of humor can mask a greater susceptibility to depression. In fact, a certain sense of humor may be a symptom of a widespread, often untreated disease that disables and kills. Continue reading

THESE ARE THE 11 DIRTIEST THINGS IN EVERY RESTAURANT

KITCHEN DAILY

We tend to assume that when we go to a restaurant, everything will be spotless and sanitary. And for the most part, it is; no restaurant wants to make its customers sick. But some spots are more or less impossible to fully clean, and they’re the dirtiest places in every restaurant.

Click Here to see the Slideshow for The 11 Dirtiest Things in Every Restaurant

We’ve asked several leading chefs and food personalities what the first thing they look for is when they walk into a restaurant, and just about all of them tell us cleanliness. If they’re cutting corners in their front-of-house — with a dirty floor and cobwebs in the windows, for example — then they’re most likely cutting even more corners in the kitchen.

And even if the dining room looks clean, the best way to tell for sure if care is given to upkeep is to head to the restroom. Odds are that this is the only restroom in the restaurant, so if there’s no soap in the soap dispenser then the kitchen staff aren’t washing their hands. A good rule of thumb? If places that are accessible to customers are dirty, then places that aren’t — namely, the kitchen — are even dirtier.

It’s good to keep in mind that when you sit down at a table in a restaurant, you’re one of hundreds or thousands of people who’ve eaten a meal in that exact spot. The glassware, plates, and silverware are run through the dishwasher, obviously, but all the other stuff you might come in contact with — the table, chairs and menus — are rarely thoroughly scrubbed.

So if you want to limit exposure to bacteria and other germs in a restaurant, we recommend that you wash your hands before you eat anything, keep a bottle of hand sanitizer handy, or just try not to think about it too much.

Check out the slideshow above to learn the 11 dirtiest things in every restaurant.

How To Break The Cigarette Habit Once And For All

The right combination of e-cigs and vaping can save your lungs, and your life.

Every person who has ever wrestled with their addiction to cigarettes will attest to the extreme difficulty of “breaking the habit“.

Truly, there may be no addiction that is harder to break than cigarette smoking.  Arguably there are more people on Planet Earth who suffer from this plight than any other addiction.  Time and time again we have heard over the years just how challenging it is to “break free the cig fix“.  Young people and old people, educated and uninformed, rich and poor, alike have found their addiction to nicotine to be the greatest single challenge of their lifetime.

Which is why we are compelled to share the following very powerful personal testimony.  It has been provided by one of our clients who for years has tried to give up cigarettes.  You name it, he’s done it.  Nothing worked until his experimentation with the e-cig/vaping system came along.  Here’s his story … in his own words.

Vedic Astrology Report: Jupiter Transits Into ‘Place Of Great Service’

Jupiter in Pushya nakshatra

by  on JULY 9, 2014

Brihaspati (Jupiter)

Brihaspati (Jupiter)

A very momentous planetary transit has just occurred in Vedic astrology, or Jyotish.  The most revered benevolent planet in Vedic astrology has moved into its highest spiritual placement.  An exalted Jupiter has changed constellations or nakshatras from Punarvasu to Pushya. Jupiter in Pushya nakshatra is a placement that Indians highly anticipate, as it occurs once every twelve years.

Jupiter went into exaltation in Cancer last month.  Jupiter is considered to be at its greatest point of exaltation in Pushya nakshatra.  Each nakshatra has an associated symbol and presiding deity. The symbol for Pushya nakshatra is the udder of a cow. Cows are revered as sacred animals in India for their capacity to selflessly provide milk, which can also be turned into butter and yogurt.

The cow is also the only animal which will provide milk to animals which are not its own.   This innate inclination to nurture can manifest in Pushya dominant individuals (particularly those with Jupiter in Pushya, Pushya Moon, or ascendant natally in Pushya) in a multitude of ways – physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc.

The presiding deity for Pushya nakshatra is Brihaspati, another appellation for Jupiter. In Sanskrit, Jupiter is translated as Guru. Guru is a name given to a (often spiritual) teacher. The prefix gu- translates as darkness and the suffix –ru translates as light. Thus, a Guru is one who can take us from ignorance to enlightenment.  Therefore, Pushya also has the auspicious association with spiritual and religious themes.

Jupiter is the significator for religious and spiritual activities in Vedic astrology. Thus, Jupiter in Pushya nakshatra can be a very significant time to perform spiritual austerities and to reap the rewards of your practices.  Jupiter is the planetary ruler for Thursdays in the Vedic calendar. Thursdays are known as Guruvar or the day or the Guru.

Pushya nakshatraPushya nakshatra is considered the most humanitarian of all 27 nakshatras, and Jupiter the most benefic of the nine planets.  Jupiter in Pushya nakshatra is an ideal time to partake in situations which allow you to advise, mentor, and guide others. It’s a time for selfless open-hearted giving.

Astronomically, Pushya nakshatra is situated from 3 degrees 20 minutes Cancer to 16 degrees 40 minutes Cancer.  Jupitet’s greatest exaltation is at 5 degrees Cancer. This is when we can most optimize our spiritual practices and nurture others.  Jupiter reaches this point on July 11 and 12.  This very auspiciously coincides with the Indian holiday dedicated to honoring one’s Guru - Guru Purnima.  If you have revered teachers, it is very uplifting to honor them on thisGuru Purnima 2014.

Jupiter remains in Pushya nakshatra until September 2, 2014.  Then Jupiter enters Ashlesha nakshatra and remains there for its duration in Cancer.

 

Why was tobacco laced with Polonium-210 and Zyklon B?

TOBACCO AND POLONIUM 210 AND ZYKLON B

GENOCIDAL DEMOGRAPHIC MANAGEMENT NON-WORKING LIFE AND USELESS EATERS

by Arden Gifford, MD

radio

I worked with my cousin Fred Bock PhD in his lab identifying the Polonium 210 the detonating trigger for nuclear devices and measured it in lab rabbits that were in plastic cages with smoking tobacco. I measured the Geiger counter reading on all the body tissues and after they all died of cancer and heart disease and stroke I saw the damage radioactive fallout has on the body. This is combined with Zyklon B cyanide laced in to destroy the immune system to prevent any body response to stop the disease.

My uncle Tom Braden was the Director of the Foreign Intelligence dept in the CIA and was a founding member of the Bilderberger conference in the Ditchley Castle for the lieutenants of the Central Committee the Bilderbergers and was the funding representative for the Bilderbergers to be an organized CIA operation. The topic of concern in the first meeting was the growing post war population that would consumer the global national product in entitlements. The Po210 Zyklon B program was begun then to lace into liquid vats for two years in curing all tobacco products to dose it to kill people genocidally on or before their becoming useless eaters and non-working life.

They appointed Fred Bock PhD to the Roswell Park Cancer Institute Orchid Park Research program in Buffalo, NY and he with JFK and Nelson Rockefeller put the warning label on the cigarettes.

This is the largest global systematic state sponsored genocidal extermination program in the world. It is marketed with 3x the laced toxins to China India and Portugal for the reduction of the aging population.

Dr. LaMaitre, MD Director of MD ANDERSON CANCER CENTER here in Houston, is the current Director of the Tobacco project for the hospital. He was my Dean in Medical School. He said he knew all about this when I was in training but was instructed to never tell the medical students about it for fear they would stop the program and spread the word. Dumbing down. Two Thirds, 2/3 of the cash in the cancer industry is directly due to this tobacco/polonium 210/zyklon B program. As Director of the Tobacco Program he does not mention that and the lab in MDA Hospital Director does not know what Polonium 210 is and has no lab test or vendor to check for it at all as all cancer centers in the country. He was informed if he did the research grant money for the school would dry up and there would noHill-Burton Funds to add additional parts of the hospital complex from the government. the residuals to the government was partially past on to the doctors and medical institutions in form of fees, building money, and research grants based on the organized silence muzzling throughout the medical education  industry.

Tobacco deliberately laced with Polonium 210 and Zyklon B cyanide

is the cash cow of medicine and led to the 

massive growth in the medical field in recent decades.

The Gulf of Mexico Is Still Dying

Featured

Pathogenic Micro-organisms Proliferate Due
To Polluted And Poisoned GOM ‘Bioterrain’

by Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Cyber-Conference

There have been several significant developments over the past few decades in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) which now require special and immediate attention.  The multitude of oil spills — both large and small — require extraordinary remediation measures, as well as the application of safe and proven technologies which will not make the existing hydrocarbon pollution worse. There are other major sources of water pollution in the GOM which have also became apparent, particularly since the eye-opening 2010 BP oil spill.

The Gulf of Mexico is Dying: A Special Report On The BP Gulf Oil Spill

The BP Gulf Oil Spill drew the world’s attention to the GOM for a variety of reasons. The sheer volume of oil spilt was unprecedented, as were its profound and lasting effects on a large geographic area.  Because it occurred in such a large body of water, many population centers were adversely impacted as they continue to be up to this very day.  However, it was the incompetent and negligent oil spill response from BP that received the justified scrutiny of the entire world.

Some have since advanced the notion that global oil spill response has been forever changed for the better, because of how profoundly BP mismanaged the spill for all to see. In this regard, they speak of a literal sea change regarding the methodologies and modalities, process and procedure, science and technology that are now accepted by many of the nations of the world.

The entire world watched in horror as millions of gallons of the dispersant Corexit were used to ‘disappear’ the gushing oil in the Macondo Prospect throughout 2010 and beyond. Disappearing the oil actually meant sinking it, after micronizing it, so that both BP and the US Federal Government could be ‘applauded’ for a successful response.  However, the known health risks/dangers and environmental damage caused by Corexit became so well publicized that it has now been banned in those countries which have learned from the BP fiasco.  The following article provides more details in this regard.

Dispersant Use Like Corexit Sees Precipitous Decline Worldwide

The single revelation about the ramped up toxicity of Corexit-treated oil* served to awaken many stakeholders about the safety of dispersant use in our coastal waters. More importantly, this issue also triggered a variety of concerns about the overall condition of the Gulf of Mexico.  Residents along the GOM coast, business owners, annual vacationers, property owners and the like began to research and discover the true state of the Gulf.

*We can make the following three (3) statements about oil, dispersant (Corexit 9500) and dispersed oil as per this EPA website link on the relative toxicities of Corexit and petroleum:

(1) 10.72 parts per million (ppm) of oil alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.
(2) 25.20 parts per million of dispersant (Corexit 9500) alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.
(3) 2.61 parts per million of dispersed oil (Corexit-laden) alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.

It was through a confluence of many disparate circumstances during the gushing, “ginormous”  oil volcano which brought to light the following critical observations about the overall status of the Gulf of Mexico. These various perceptions and insights, when considered in the aggregate and within a much larger context, have allowed to surface an assessment of the GOM which can no longer be denied or ignored.  Continue reading

Does The Nickel In iPads Cause Rashes?

98f2ad30-0b69-11e4-be5a-4b04da5c6e6b_rash-copy

Nickel is one of those metals that has been found to induce allergy symptoms.  It is frequently found in computer equipment and other forms of information technology hardware.  The iPad is the electronic device which recently triggered a visit to a hospital in California for a young boy due to an allergic skin reaction.  A recent Associated Press article pointed  out the following:

“Nickel rashes aren’t life-threatening, but they can be very uncomfortable”, said Dr. Sharon Jacob, a dermatologist at Rady Children’s Hospital, where the boy was treated. Jacob, who co-wrote the report, said the young patient had to miss school because of the rash.

 

The boy discussed in the Pediatrics report had a common skin condition that causes scaly patches, but he developed a different rash all over his body that didn’t respond to usual treatment. Skin testing showed he had a nickel allergy, and doctors traced it to an iPad his family had bought in 2010.”[1]

It became clear to the healthcare professionals that the coating of the iPad, after testing the device, contained nickel. Upon putting the iPad in a protective case, the allergic reaction began to subside and the young boy eventually got better. Continue reading
