I just finished teaching The Aging Reversal Course, at Kamloops Adult Learners Society. As always a super group of people showed up for the six week course. The course will be offered again at KALS in Fall 2017.
In the first class there is a bit of skepticism but quickly students see that for the most part Ayurveda is simply a matter of making easy and pleasant changes. I’m tell the story of a student who returned for a day workshop a year after taking the course. She’d lost weight. Sixty pounds she proudly informed me. (She had not turned to skin and bones but just looked curvy and fit.) What did she do? She got in sync with Natural Law, followed an enjoyable Vedic Approach to exercise and ate a light, savoury supper around 5pm. She made these changes gradually. She didn’t force the change. And enjoying every part of it.
People ask me if I teach a course on weight management. I do, but I don't call it weight management. It is The Aging Reversal Course.
I recently spent a session with the dental hygienist. As a result of traveling these last few years it had been two and a half years between cleanings. The cleaning was not too gruesome but I asked myself what would I do if there were no hygienist? What I've committed to is to use Mishra’s Ayurvedic tooth paste, and to be more regular with the oil pulling.
The toothpaste label reads “Binds Amavisha (toxins), Alkalizes, Pacifies Pitta, Cools, Neutralizes Sugar, Creates a Good Environment for Friendly Bacteria, Nourishes.” The toothpaste seems expensive but I use about a quarter of the regular amount. www.chandi.com
Oil pulling is simply swishing a small amount of oil around the mouth and though the teeth for a few minutes. Sesame oil is the oil usually recommended though other oils - coconut, almond etc- may serve nearly as well.
Happy Spring to All,
