Assimilating the Yoga Spirit into Daily Life, Part 1 of 2

00:14:47

Assimilating the Yoga Spirit into Daily Life, Part 1 of 2

Yoga originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and was introduced to Western society in the 19th century. The many benefits it brings to body, mind, and spirit have made yoga not only a popular form of exercise but also a kind of lifestyle. Meggie has been practicing yoga for 16 years and specializes in Hatha yoga, which focuses on asanas, or pose. Asanas, pranayama, or regulation of the breath, and meditation are some of the key fundamentals of yoga. “In fact, yoga is a spiritual practice method in India. The spiritual practitioners probably do yoga first thing in the morning, then do pranayama, and meditate. This process makes their meditation more stable and concentrated.” “In the three most important yoga asanas: Salamba Sirsasana (supported headstand), Salamba Sarvnagasana (supported shoulder stand), and Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend), Salamba Sirsasana gives you 10% physical and 90% spiritual enhancement.” “In yoga practice, bending forward is about your past. Bending backward is about looking into the future, and stepping outside the comfort zone.”

Gemma Newman, MD: Plant Power Doctor, Part 2 of 2

If you look at the top 15 causes of death, a plant-based diet can help to either improve, arrest or even - in some case - reverse 14 of the top 15 causes of death. Now, the only cause of death that it doesn't have any influence over is an accidental death, like a car crash. So the plant-based diet is really great for health, but not a lot of medical institutions promote it. My hope is that in the years to come, with the increased knowledge that we have, that more and more medical professionals will start to include the plant-based diet within their recommendations.

Dr. Lee Yu-Ming on Traditional Chinese Medicine's Profound Wisdom, Part 3 of 3

In addition to considering the results gathered from the four diagnostic methods of TCM, that of visual inspection, listening and smelling, verbal inquiry and physical palpation, when assessing a patient’s condition, a traditional Chinese medical doctor will use the Eight Principles of TCM to further investigate and discover the cause of a disease. The “Eight Principles” refer to “yin and yang,” “exterior and interior,” “cold and heat,” and “deficiency and excess.” However, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that the vegetarian diet is good for health, because in the “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic,” a lot of emphasis is placed on meat-eating being a potential cause of various kinds of diseases.

Dr. Steve Blake's Natural Approach to Osteoarthritis, Part 1 of 2

Dr. Blake, a vegan, has a doctorate in holistic health specializing in nutritional biochemistry as well as naturopathic medicine. I think that with a good natural approach, a nutritional approach, we can lower this number and help people who already have arthritis. One of the best things we can do for hip or knee arthritis is to lose a little bit of weight. The best approach to arthritis is to make sure you’re getting your mega-3s, the plant-based omega-3s. So, get enough flax seeds ground up and enough walnuts in your diet.

Dr. Lin Yeh-Jen: Healing with Forest Therapy, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

The forest is an ecosystem full of lives. Therefore, forest therapy is a method that uses lives to heal and guide other lives. A forest is like a mother who accepts us without saying a word. To put it another way, forests have a secret power, an invisible power. Dr. Lin has been working on adding a spiritual dimension to this therapy. May forest therapy continue to grow in popularity so that many more people can benefit from nature’s blessings and elevate their health.

What Compassion Can Do for Our Health

00:17:14

What Compassion Can Do for Our Health

When you hear the word "compassion," what do you associate it with? In multiple studies over the past 25 years, researchers have determined that this characteristic is an inborn tendency of all humans. In the fifth book of the New Testament, it is recorded that Lord Jesus Christ said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35) If performing acts of compassion make us happy, how does happiness translate into better health? In other words, when we are focused more on others than on ourselves, our life is rich in compassion and our wellness is enhanced. When the people around us are joyful and at ease, we become more cheerful ourselves.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Fredric Weiss on Plant-Strong Eating, Part 1 of 2

I have recently become acquainted with the importance of diet in treating the diseases that I treat. And so if we can somehow stem that by changing our diets and our exercise patterns, it will save us a lot of livers for patients who have congenital diseases or diseases that were certainly nothing to do with their diets or their lifestyle. Dairy, in particular, is a major cause of gas, belching, reflux, and abdominal pain. So, I think the dairy elimination can start to do wonders for patients who have upper gastrointestinal illnesses. Plant-based diets are hugely filled with fiber and nutrients that encourage water excretion by the colon.

Being Vegan Can Improve Our Cholesterol Profile

00:15:34

Being Vegan Can Improve Our Cholesterol Profile

University of Toronto researchers in Canada have found that people eating a plant-based diet lowered their LDL cholesterol by nearly 30% in just four weeks, a result comparable to taking cholesterol-lowering medications. In addition to reducing LDL cholesterol, the researchers found that the diet led to an estimated 13% reduction in the overall risk for cardiovascular diseases, which include angina and heart disease. A study published in the “Journal of the American Heart Association” in August 2019, further supports the health benefits of a vegan diet. Dr. Rebholz and her colleagues examined data from 12,168 middle-aged people who had enrolled in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. The results showed that the reduction in deaths from heart attacks, and other severe cardiovascular events, is correlated with people consuming more vegetables, legumes, nuts, and whole grains.

Ayurveda: The Science of Life

Ayurveda: The Science of Life

Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, and is one of the oldest medical systems in our world. In Sanskrit, the word “Ayurveda” has two components, “ayur” meaning longevity and “veda” meaning science. In the beginning, this method was passed down through the generations by Indian physicians and sages through oral teaching. Later, this precious healing knowledge was recorded in books. The three key ancient texts that document Ayurvedic medicine practices are famously known as the “Great Trilogy,” namely the “Charaka Samhita,” “Sushruta Samhita” and “Astanga Hridaya.”

We are honored to feature the insightful perspectives of Dr. Lee Yu-Ming, a vegan TCM physician in Hong Kong, that will provide us with an introduction to the age-old Chinese healing art that he practices. Traditional Chinese Medicine’s origin dates back thousands of years, and this science emphasizes health maintenance and prevention of illness. This healing system relies on four diagnostic methods and is based on eight key principles. The diagnostic procedures are used to observe the signs and symptoms of an illness, while the principles are employed to summarize and analyze the observations to help the doctor find out the cause of the disease.

The Traditional Chinese Way to a Healthy & Happy Winter

00:16:20

The Traditional Chinese Way to a Healthy & Happy Winter

“The Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor” also states that winter is a time for lower metabolism and energy storage. It is best to go to bed early and rise with the Sun. As the kidneys represent the reservoir of willpower, we should let our minds enter a state of dormancy and refrain from focusing on the outside world. Avoiding the cold and keeping warm is recommended. As to which parts of the body especially need safeguarding from the cold, it is crucial to pay attention to the back and feet. According to TCM, one’s winter diet should focus on nourishing the yin and tonifying the yang to enhance the body’s resistance and immune system. Black-colored vegan foods are thought to be good for the kidneys and thus should grace our dining table in the cold season.

Thomas Tadlock: Reversing Disease and Changing Lives Through Vegan Fitness, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

We asked Thomas to explain why people experience plateaus and tell us what he does as a trainer to help his clients move forward again. “And it just boils down to two things, that’s it. It’s either their workout strategy is not working for them anymore, or their nutrition strategy is not working for them – or both. Once you go into plant-based training, you start eating the right way. That doesn’t really have to change much from a training standpoint.” “The most powerful driving force for a lot of people that I run into, to make the switch to go vegan, is seeing that it works better and faster. Once they try it, and they do it, and they get results faster than they ever have doing it any other way, they are like, ‘I am in. I can do this for life.’”

And so we decided to survey our list at the Institute for Responsible Technology. And 3,256 people reported getting better from 28 different conditions when they switched to non GMO and largely organic diets. That the number one condition was digestive problems, and number two was fatigue, number three was overweight or obesity, and number four was clouding of consciousness. Number five was mood problems, such as anxiety or depression, and then there’s food allergies and sensitivity, and every one of those is 50% or above.

We are privileged to have Dr. William Glatt, an esteemed internal and addiction medicine specialist, share with us his expert knowledge on opioids, pain treatment, and the nature of drug addiction. Opioids are morphine-like chemicals primarily used as analgesics to relieve severe pain. However, employing opioids for pain management has its inherent risks. Pain management need not be drug-based as there are many options available. Nowadays, more people are using meditation for pain issues. Inner contemplation is also another way to prevent, control, or resolve certain long-term conditions.

The Healing Power of Music

00:16:21

The Healing Power of Music

The latest scientific research tells us that music does just that - healing our bodies and minds. Perhaps it is obvious that music can uplift and heal us emotionally in several ways. New research demonstrates that music therapy can be highly effective in treating anxiety disorders, depression, chronic pain and other mental stressors. It can also help people recovering from emotional trauma. Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) is also being treated with music. Music therapy is a burgeoning field with many applications. For example, music can actually help to heal an injured brain! Music therapy research is reaching into many other aspects of medical care as well. The Music-Heals Project in the United States is, “researching and composing specific rhythms, tempos and key signatures that will resynchronize the out-of-sync brainwaves of children with autism.” The organization is also studying how music may improve a “Parkinson’s patient’s ability to walk, and researching the type of music necessary to assist an Alzheimer’s patient with memory and recall.” The ultimate goal of the Music-Heals Project is to use music as a medical therapy for patients with these conditions.
