Ananda Dhara Yoga Village: Helping People Attain Bliss, Part 1 of 3

Ananda Dhara Yoga Village: Helping People Attain Bliss, Part 1 of 3

Today, we are privileged to introduce you to Rutger Tamminga, the co-founder of a special institution that endeavors to spread the yoga spirit, the Ananda Dhara Yoga Village – Center for Applied Neohumanism. Based in Taichung City, Taiwan, also known as Formosa, the center was established in 1995 by Mr. Tamminga, who is originally from the Netherlands, and Mohamukta of Formosa. Ananda Dhara, which means “abode of bliss” in Sanskrit, is a place aspiring to promote and apply the Neohumanism philosophy of the venerated Indian spiritual guru Sri Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar, also known as Baba, through many initiatives, including yoga and wellness classes for different age groups and people with special needs, group meditation, yoga teacher training, and storytelling workshops. Starting from scratch 25 years ago, the couple eventually established this mountain spiritual retreat center in a beautiful setting. They have also founded a kindergarten, published an assortment of yoga-themed educational materials for children such as storybooks, music CDs, and kindergarten curriculums. In this episode, Rutger shares his perspectives on yoga and now provides an overview of the practice. Mr. Tamminga feels yoga practitioners should pay close attention to diet and discusses his vegetarian lifestyle. “Part of the reason why the world is heating up is because of meat production. But to come back to the yoga side of our diet, there are other foods we also avoid taking. Apart from meat, we don’t eat eggs. They are not good for our mental peace. This kind of sensitivity develops when you practice more. The idea of yoga is to develop a purer mind, a more stable and peaceful mind. And our food affects how we think.” Yoga has also been shown to help children with attention problems, as well as to support executive function development. “We also do yoga with children who have special needs. And together with my wife we have a kindergarten, and in our school, we get children who have maybe developmental problems. And we have found yoga to be beneficial to these children also. So actually, yoga is for everyone, but it needs to be adjusted according to every person.”

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 3 of 3

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 3 of 3

Today, we introduce TAH’s healthy lifestyle project called NEWSTART. This wellness initiative was created by the Weimar Institute in California, USA, an entity that was also founded by Adventists. NEWSTART is an acronym for Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest, and Trust (in Divine Power). To correspond with the hospital’s mission to maintain public health, TAH established the Sanyu Health Education Center as a NEWSTART program site, with the Weimar Institute’s support and guidance. The Sanyu Health Education Center, located in Nantou, Taiwan (Formosa), was founded to improve the public’s well-being by teaching disease prevention strategies and providing services related to physical and mental wellness promotion. We were honored to interview Dr. James Wu, the center’s chief executive officer who kindly shared his insights on how NEWSTART keeps program participants healthy and enhances lives. As a vegan, he advocates a diet of “4 Noes and 1 High,” with meals served at the Sanyu Health Education Center following these guidelines. Dr. Wu explains. “‘Four Noes and One High.’ This means no refined oil, no refined sugar, no eggs, and no milk, and a diet high in fiber. That means a vegan diet. Veganism was mentioned in the [Holy] Bible, in the Book of Genesis, which was written several thousand years ago. Records from 4,000 years ago say that we humans were herbivores originally. The evidence is in our dental structure, the wavy lining and length of our intestines, and the folds of our large intestine. Humans have a biological structure that is suitable for the vegan diet. Cows, sheep, horses, camels, and elephants are all vegetarians. They are physically strong and live very long lives. Their body structure is that of vegetarians. We humans, by nature, are vegetarians. In the [Holy] Bible, Genesis, Chapter 1, it is said that all fruits, vegetables, and plants are food for us. So, recently the plant-based diet has become a trend.” Our health is reflective of our daily lifestyle. An inappropriate diet and undesirable habits are the main causes of many chronic illnesses. The NEWSTART program provides a solution by helping nurture practices that are beneficial to one’s health, including mental wellness. A result of NEWSTART’s focus is an overall reduced need for medical treatment by people completing the program, thus lowering their healthcare costs. We are very grateful to Dr. Wu for sharing his knowledge and providing us with a useful background on the NEWSTART program. Let’s all make a new start, embracing the wholesome plant-based lifestyle, which brings peace and wellness to all beings.

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 2 of 3

In today’s show, we are honored to hear from Dr. Hsieh Chia-Ming, a breast cancer surgeon, Taiwan Adventist Hospital’s Cancer Care Committee’s chief executive officer, and the former director of the hospital’s breast surgery department. He will share with us his perspectives on the relationship between a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and breast cancer prevention as well as about his hospital’s compassionate care for breast cancer patients. Breast cancer is a condition where a malignant tumor has developed from cells in the breast. “Breast cancer occurs most generally around the age of 40 to 69 or 70. It is lucky if the disease is diagnosed and treated in the early stages so that she still could keep her roles in the family and workplace. It is not only helpful to her health, but also mental sustenance for her. So, it is necessary to have regular check-ups. The most important point is to never let the disease happen in the first place. Therefore, a proper diet, a vegetable and fruit-based diet, and regular exercise, may be the most fundamental and better way to prevent diseases.” Dr. Hsieh discussed with us the research findings of Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Scientists concluded that women who consume high amounts of fruits and vegetables each day have a lesser chance of having breast cancer. “It was led by America’s Harvard University. Thirty years ago, they began tracing the relationship between the breast cancer risk and intake of vegetables and fruits – that is, if your intake of vegetables and fruits is high, then your breast cancer risk will be lower. In fact, according to our long-term follow-up tracing, it is really beneficial to have a correct diet and proper exercise. These can activate the immune cells in our body to fight the cancer cells. They can suppress the cancer.” We appreciate Dr. Hsieh Chia-Ming's sharing of his medical expertise about breast cancer and how his hospital is supporting those with the condition.

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 1 of 3

Taiwan Adventist Hospital is one of over 170 healthcare institutions run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a Protestant Christian denomination with approximately 25 million people attending weekly worship worldwide. The facility is Formosa’s first vegetarian hospital and was initially founded in Shanghai by the legendary vegetarian American physician, Dr. Harry W. Miller, before shifting to Taipei. Known as the “China Doctor,” this Seventh-day Adventist served as a medical missionary in China for almost 70 years. In the latter part of his life, he fundraised to help establish 20 Adventist hospitals in the Far East. “We follow the spirit of Jesus Christ in providing holistic care,” is Taiwan Adventist Hospital’s mission. Holistic care is a system that cultivates a harmonious relationship among patients, families, and medical professionals while addressing the needs of the body, mind, and spirit to achieve the attainment of optimal health. To further this Christian holistic care mission, the hospital has adopted the SHARE concept to provide patients and visitors with thoughtful and heartwarming service. The goal is to also deliver compassionate and professional medical treatment. Taiwan Adventist Hospital has been providing vegetarian meals since its establishment, reflecting the guidance of Ellen White, one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. She greatly influenced church doctrines, particularly concerning health and diet. In medicine, it’s well known that prevention is better than a cure. Unfortunately, many people only begin to value their health after they become seriously ill. That is why the Taiwan Adventist Hospital promotes a vegetarian diet, along with a healthy lifestyle. The vegetarian recipes used at the Taiwan Adventist Hospital feature whole foods that are low in fat, salt, and sugar. Since these recipes are beneficial for disease prevention as well as aiding treatment and postoperative care, the hospital provides healthy vegetarian food not just to patients, but also to visitors.

Healing through Playing with Art: Art Therapist Joan Stanford (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Healing through Playing with Art: Art Therapist Joan Stanford (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Today, Joan will continue to elaborate on how this treatment modality assists individuals to achieve better lives and how creativity is associated with our physical wellness. “Whenever people talk about wellness, they talk about diet, nutrition, exercise, meditation, and relaxation, but very rarely do they talk about creativity as being an essential pillar and I think it really is because when we tap into our creativity, it's so enlivening enlightening; it’s energizing.” The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Joan teaches a class called “Artful Nutrition” and explains how the creative process she teaches in this course can help remove negative thoughts. “My part in that is to get to the underlying saboteur that tends to get in the way of your good intentions. So I've usually had them make some representation of that voice inside them that says, ‘Oh, you'll never do it, or you're not worthy of being healthy, or you're too this, or you're too that,’ that very nasty, nagging voice that stops our good intentions. Again, it's a very emotional process for a lot of people because it's a message they heard from someone else usually that they're not good enough or whatever and I'll have them make some representation of that voice or that critic, that I call the inner saboteur, because to me it's the underminer and it stops you from doing what you say you want to do.” In terms of nourishment, a vegan diet is recommended by doctors and been proven in numerous scientific studies to be the most healthy and energizing lifestyle choice. By not consuming animals, our mental wellness is also uplifted as our conscience is clear. Joan and her husband Jeff are both vegan, and she now shares with us why they chose plant-based eating as well as how it benefits them. “We did a lot of radio interviews, and we both said it was like we essentially see it as eliminating a huge conflict. And I think whenever you can eliminate conflict in yourself, inner conflict, two voices, you're more at peace and when you're more at peace, you're healthier, and you're happier.”

Today, we will continue to introduce her (Joan) publication and explore other beneficial aspects of art therapy. “The book came out of wanting to let other busy people know that this is something they could do and add to any spiritual practice they have or anything really. So it’s letting people re-own that they have this creative spirit and re-own that child that desperately wants to play and enjoy life, rather than kind of see it as a drudgery.” “Because it opened up such a world for me and changed my attitude towards my own life, I wanted to invite other people, other busy people that would never consider playing with art materials, playing period, really. So that’s why I came up with the idea of offering playshops. I want to keep it light, but it’s always therapeutic when you do something and have fun.” “Imagery is evocative. So, if you ask someone to do something with imagery, it’s pulling from that inner self and to me that’s how it connects to being more aware of your own projections, prejudices, and misconceptions. It clarifies how you see the world. You get more in touch with it. Everybody that has any kind of sense of spirituality, you understand the mind, body and all of that, but it really makes it real; it really makes it real.”

According to the British Association of Art Therapists, art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication. Art is not used as a diagnostic tool but as a medium to address emotional issues, which may be confusing and distressing. We are honored to feature and interview with Joan Stanford, a vegan board-certified art therapist, who will graciously introduce us to the practical uses and positive effects of art therapy. “The directive that I was taught in my training was to hold it in your hands as though it was your heart or you. Something, so you’re very gentle with it. Like you spent five minutes just holding clay in your hands and manipulating it in some fashion. How did that make you feel? And often, people cry because it’s a tactile medium, so it’s a very early stage in our development, pre-verbal and all of that, and it just opens up things.” “A dramatic example I remember was with a young boy that had night terrors. He had a really horrific thing happen in his life. And I asked him to, on this piece of paper, put something symbolic of the fear, so he put… and then I said, ‘Well, now fold that up, hide it.’ So, he folded it up… but over the next few weeks, he stopped having the night terrors.”

Hydroponics for a Sustainable and Healthy Life

Hydroponics for a Sustainable and Healthy Life

Hydroponics has gained popularity in recent years. Hydroponics may be defined as the science of growing plants without soil. A nutrient solution that contains all the essential elements needed for optimum growth and development is delivered directly to the plant. Hydroponics is not only a convenient and affordable method of farming but also contributes to a sustainable lifestyle. The growth rate of a hydroponic plant is 30-50% faster than a soil-based plant grown under the same conditions. Hydroponics can help address the issue of food shortages globally and bring fresh, healthful produce closer to densely-populated areas. With the advancement of technology, the footprint required for hydroponics is decreasing. Hydroponics allows people to grow plants year-round, regardless of unfavorable weather or environmental conditions such as poor soil. Hydroponic cultivation in urban and suburban spaces can be a bonding activity for family and friends, thus boosting people’s mental health.

Stopping Zoonotic Diseases: The Vegan Lifestyle Matters, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will talk about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and provide some tips from experts to help lessen the risk of infection. Like other coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 jumped from animals to humans. Some scientists theorize the pathogen started in bats, jumped to pangolins, and then to humans. The data and research findings from previous zoonotic disease epidemic and pandemic events and the current situation with COVID-19, clearly demonstrate that emergency action is needed and governments worldwide should now immediately ban all animal livestock raising and the sale of meat whether from domestic or wild animals to not only to protect global public health and save lives but also to show kindness and respect to our animal friends. Currently, the best way to protect yourself from getting infected by the novel coronavirus is to avoid being exposed to it. Regular hand washing is strongly recommended to help prevent infection. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers (at least 60% concentration). To avoid crowds and large gatherings, skipping non-essential trips outside the home and avoiding close contact with others by foregoing greetings like handshakes and hugging. A surgical mask is designed to guard against splashes and droplets and also wall off the droplets from the wearer.

Stopping Zoonotic Diseases: The Vegan Lifestyle Matters, Part 1 of 2

This two-part series focuses on certain epidemics and pandemics from the past two decades that have killed many, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome(SARS), Ebola, swine flu, avian flu, and coronavirus and their roots in meat consumption or animal livestock raising, or both. We also cover how a plant-based diet is the best way to minimize zoonotic diseases or infectious diseases caused by the transmission of germs between animals and humans. “Scientists estimate that more than 6 out of every 10 known infectious diseases in people can be spread from animals, and 3 out of every 4 new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from animals.” This is known as zoonotic disease transmission. The CDC defines an epidemic as the number of cases of a transmittable disease arising suddenly above the expected level in a given population within a short period of time. A pandemic is “an epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, usually affecting a large number of people.” It turns out that Mother Nature has already warned humanity about the meat-eating habit. The simple solution of adopting a vegan lifestyle to prevent zoonotic epidemics has been known for a long time. However, this obvious answer has been ignored….

Aerobic Dance – A Fun Way to Get in Shape, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, we’ll talk about selecting appropriate workout gear and dance music as well as give some tips to help with forming an exercise habit. For aerobic dance,it's best to wear material that is stretchy, breathable, and moisture-wicking, such as lycra or spandex, or wear loose-fitting sweatpants and a t-shirt. Since aerobic dancing involves plenty of footwork such as twisting, sliding, jumping, and leaping for extended periods, wearing proper dance shoes is crucial. Combining aerobic dance workouts with a healthy vegan diet will further improve your fitness. A plant-based diet is usually high in carbohydrates, which is the major energy source for aerobic exercises. Music is an integral part of aerobic dancing, and for those exercising at home, choosing tracks based on enjoyment and rhythm help you build momentum to keep you going. Aerobic dancing is a great exercise that everyone can benefit from and enjoy.

Aerobic dancing is a great way to have fun, speed up your blood circulation, and keep your body in good physical condition. Multiple studies have proven that doing aerobic exercises regularly may help to regulate weight, improve cardiovascular heath, lower blood pressure as well as sugar and cholesterol levels, boost the immune system, and reduce chronic pain. In addition to the physical benefits just mentioned, these exercises may also enhance brain power, boost your mood, and alleviate stress. Dancing has a number of advantages over other aerobic exercises and has become one of the most popular ways around our world to get healthy and stay fit. Once you have decided on the right exercise frequency, you will need to select your preferred dance genre. The main types of aerobic dance are Jazzercise, Zumba, ballroom dancing, belly dancing, and Masala Bhangra. Once you have selected the intensity and genre of your dance workout, you need to choose the way to do it - hiring a private instructor, joining a group course, or dance at home.

Dr. Stephen Gorad (Vegan) on Quinoa - Supergrain of the Future, Part 3 of 3

Dr. Stephen Gorad (Vegan) on Quinoa - Supergrain of the Future, Part 3 of 3

This supergrain has many different colors and other distinguishing features. Dr. Gorad explains more. “There’s red, white, and black. There are actually several thousand different quinoas. So that’s something that concerns me, because when I started with quinoa, one of the things I talked about was the diversity of genetic material in quinoa.” As our world transitions to plant-based eating, those engaged in animal livestock raising will also change to compassionate livelihoods. “The spiritual meaning of respecting animals’ lives is one thing. The other thing is the kind of ecological disaster that raising animals is causing on the planet. Someone calculated the amount of energy it takes to produce a unit of protein. So the ratio for meat is 50 to one. For fish, it’s 10 to one. Chicken is four to one. Soy is two to one. You only need two units of energy to produce a unit of protein. Quinoa. Less than one and a half to one.(Wow.) It’s the most efficient plant for producing protein. Maybe it’s not so important now, but it’s going to be important in the future.”

He was so impressed with this crop that the felt a calling to make quinoa a food that can be enjoyed by people everywhere and has spent over four decades on this mission. “Because as the climate changes, agricultural practices are going to change also. And quinoa has several advantages. Quinoa is drought-resistant. It’s frost-resistant, and it’s salt-tolerant. I think quinoa is a miracle. It’s a miracle food in that it’s the mother grain.” Quinoa is called a superfood for its many beneficial nutritional properties. This supergrain is high in iron, an essential mineral that makes up hemoglobin that is found in oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Quinoa is also rich in riboflavin or vitamin B2 that aids with metabolism in brain and muscle cells. “You put quinoa in a glass of water. Four hours and it starts growing. So it’s like the quinoa grain is bursting with energy to grow. That’s the energy that we’re taking into our bodies when we’re eating quinoa.”

Dr. Gorad, a vegan, attended school in the USA, starting with the Bronx High School of Science and then studying at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He ultimately earned a Ph.D. from Boston University and became a clinical psychologist. He did not feel fulfilled by this career path and thus decided to pursue spiritual practice. As part of his spiritual journey, he traveled to the South American Andes and found out about quinoa. “So, the bottom line is that quinoa is a food, and not only is it a food, but it’s the type of food that could be a staple food. The main thing was that quinoa has more protein than an+H5y of the other grains. So quinoa has all of the essential amino acids. So, in that respect, they call it+G5 a complete protein. But more than that is the ratio of the quantities of each of those essential amino acids. Quinoa has that perfect balance. It’s a perfect food for everybody. Quinoa has no gluten. Quinoa has antioxidant effects on the body. It has anti-inflammatory effects in the body. And some research indicated that it’s actually protective against cancer.

What You Eat Matters: Dr. Caroline Trapp (vegan) on Diabetes, Diabetes, Part 2 of 2

Some are under the impression that once a person has acquired diabetes, he or she will need to take medication, or live with the condition, for the rest of their life. Dr. Trapp sheds light on this common misunderstanding. “Well, I no longer think that that’s true because I’ve seen people who just by making this significant diet change, have gotten healthier, and who don’t need medication, and who able to turn this disease around. In terms of diet, these are some of the reasons that I hear people or doctors say that their patients can’t do a plant-based diet. So, one is concerns about a lack of protein. No, it doesn’t happen. Another concern is that it’s too hard for most people. It’s doable. And I applaud all of you. We not only want to use less medication, but we want to use more plants. Exercise is really important, but, by itself, it often isn’t enough. Getting enough sleep is also really important. And of course, if you smoke cigarettes, that is the number one recommendation. Quitting smoking will go a long way to protecting the blood vessels that are at risk of damage from diabetes.”

She is a vegan American nurse practitioner with a doctorate in nursing practice and more than 30 years of experience in taking care of people with diabetes. “A plant-based diet is a great way to prevent getting diabetes in the first place, and if you’ve been diagnosed with the disease, a plant-based diet has been shown to turn the disease around. The research is in. A whole food plant-based diet is really beneficial for diabetes and also for heart disease and for stroke prevention and all these other concerns for people who have the disease. A whole food plant-based diet is mostly carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans are all carbs. So, I highly recommend healthy carbs.”

Forgiveness for Good Health

00:13:22

Forgiveness for Good Health

In recent years, the scientific community has been actively exploring the mind-body connection. In its simplest terms, this means that our thoughts and emotions can affect our health. A study published in the “American Journal of Cardiology” found that forgiveness protects heart health, while negative emotions have a toxic effect on the heart. Another scientific study that demonstrated the benefits of forgiving was done with type II diabetes patients. Dr. Ece Yazla from the Department of Psychiatry at Hitit University in Turkey and others discovered that as patients forgave more and more, the stress caused by the disease became less and less. The quality of relationships between the participants and their loved ones improved. Also, they were more able to cope with their health situation and had more support from others. Forgiving can improve our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It’s good for our own peace of mind, happiness, and health. Apart from the mind-body connection, spiritually speaking, forgiveness is ending the negative thoughts and resolving the negative karma with another person. Once we forgive by dropping the negative feelings toward others or ourselves, we will feel lighter and happier.

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

Yoga is not simply a workout; it’s also a form of spiritual cultivation to achieve a balanced life and liberation. Yoga practice involves both active qualities, such as the various postures performed, as well as static like meditation. All of the practice elements require relaxation and concentration to obtain the best results. How does Meggie quickly tune into the desired state? “When I do yoga practice by myself, I will pray first. I usually pray that today I will be able to bring the flow of God to the students through this exercise; and allow the students to benefit, whether it’s physical, emotional, psychological, or spiritual. They can give feedback and contribute positive energy to the universe.” For those who have a desk job, movement during the workday is likely minimal. Meggie has some asanas that can be done in one’s chair for better health. As we’ve just seen, yoga can be done practically anywhere. Here are some postures we can do in the comfort of our home.

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.”
