Food Yogi Certification Level 1 – Enrollment open

Food Yogi Certification Level 1 – Enrollment open

The Food Yoga Academy, the brainchild of International director of Food for Life, Paul Rodney Turner (aka Priyavrata das) has officially launched.

The Academy’s first course is Food Yogi Certification Level 1, where students can learn the fundamentals of the food yoga lifestyle and how to enrich their lives through conscious eating and devotion. Based on the teachings of his book, FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul, students will learn the art and science of eating with consciousness and compassion to provide a framework to elevate the act of eating from the dry and mundane to a soul-satisfying experience.

In this introduction to Food Yoga, Turner lays out the 10 fundamental truths.

Students will learn about the more subtle aspect of food and how to achieve optimum health by practicing the Food Yogi diet and lifestyle, which includes, what to eat, when to eat, water therapy, detoxing and the sacred geometry of wholefoods.

The courses will also include raw vegan food demonstrations, including smoothies, pates and crackers, cheesecakes, and soups, etc.

Students will be tested at the end of the course to earn their certification.

WHAT IS FOOD YOGA?

“This Level 1 course gives the fundamentals of the prasadarian lifestyle,” says Turner. “However, in Level 2 we will dive deep into all the details of preparing food with love in order to nourish the mind and spirit.

His book food yoga was a direct response to the inspiration behind Food for Life, Srila Prabhupada who said that “Everyone should get a chance to take prasadam*.”

“I realized that we had to empower people with the knowledge of prasadam but in order to do that I had to build a framework for understanding. The book, therefore, takes the reader on a journey of first discovering how food and thoughts are energy and I present scientific proof to back these statements,” he explains.

The Food Yoga Certification Level 1 is available now for $97, however, a special limited launch discount is being offered to the first 100 students with the coupon code: 50yoga2018

Natural Cure for Hay Fever

Natural Cure for Hay Fever

Thistles2I remember the day well. It was around Christmas time in 1988 and my brother had a severe case of hay fever. His eyes were puffy and he could not stop sneezing. There was nothing I could do to help and he felt helpless. Nothing prescribed by the doctor was working either. He then turned to an old herbal remedy book and found a paragraph suggesting that scotch thistle, also known as scots thistle or cotton thistle could help alleviate hay fever symptoms. He decided to give it a try.

We just happened to be in the countryside near cow pastures and the weed was growing everywhere. He cut 4 flowers of the spiky bush and added it to a pot of boiling water. He let the herb steep and cool down and then drank the entire pot. Nothing happened at first, but then within a hour or so his sneezing slowed down and his eyes cleared. By the next day, not only had this tea cured all symptoms, but his hay fever never returned!

Based on this experience and some other friends of ours that tried the same, I became convinced that scotch thistle most certainly can help cure hay fever. The weed is typically ignored by most people as useless, but it has a long history of natural medicine and even modern pharmacology as a plant containing a chemical that can stimulate the heart.

Scotch thistle is indigenous to almost all of Europe, with the exception of the far north, the plant was introduced to North America. In anthroposophical medicine, it is used as a cardiac stimulant (Reference: PDR for Herbal Medicines, 2nd ed., p.678).

Scotch thistle (Onopordum) is also used in Cordiodoron Tablets

Give this remedy a try and let me know how it goes.
