The Dosha Breakdown

The Spiritual Nutrition live-food diet is qualitatively different from the classic Ayurvedic diet, which aims primarily at balancing the doshas to prevent or heal disease. Although classical Ayurveda does not usually recommend a 100-percent live-food diet, we can certainly employ its principles to create an optimal, individualized, Spiritual Nutrition diet for ourselves.  Tridosha Defined There are many perspectives we can use to help guide our choice of diet. The tridosha system of the science of Ayurveda is particularly useful in helping us maintain our awareness of nutrition as the interaction between the forces of food and our own dynamic forces. […]

Cycles of Global Cooling and Warming – What Is Going On!

This is an in-depth article on the cycles of climate change. The intent for this extensive essay is to provide those that are ready with a deeper, science-based analysis on the issue. What Is Going On! There is overwhelming evidence that global warming has happened. The question addressed in this article is, in 2017 (after 58 peer reviewed papers were published in the first six months of the year clearly indicating that we’re no longer in a global warming cycle) is global warming still happening or does the science now suggest that we are moving into a cycle of global […]

Oxygen-The Life of the Party

Oxygen is the life of the party. Without oxygen there would be no party. Oxygen strengthens all of our systems – metabolism, mental functioning, cell regeneration, vitality, and anti-aging. Oxygen is the element of enthusiasm and youthfulness. If there’s an excess of oxygen, we tend to get excesses of those characteristics such as being too optimistic and expansive. These people tend to be completely led by feelings and instincts because the brain is overstimulated. In oxygen deficiency, on the other hand, we have people who are nervous, stubborn, hypersensitive, and have an increased amount of bacterial and fungal infections, as […]

Why do we Need Nitrogen?

Nitrogen

Nitrogen is an interesting element as it exists in balance with oxygen. Oxygen has a radical, explosive quality while nitrogen is more restrained. If nitrogen replaced oxygen, we would die of suffocation. If nitrogen were removed from the air, we would burn up from the oxygen. So it’s part of a life-giving balance. There are about 3.8 pounds of organic nitrogen in the body. Nitrogen is the critical element in protein. When we talk about nitrogen, we are, in a sense, talking more about protein. What contains nitrogen in our body are albumins, protein compounds, alkaloid agents, and ammonia and […]

The Great Red Way

The Great Red Way

As humans we have the task of simultaneously integrating the heavens and the earth. When we don’t do this, we become imbalanced in our health, in our relationships, and in our awareness. Much of spiritual life is balance. How do we balance the heavenly with the earthly, avoiding extremes, in an integrated way that helps us, our planet, and our relationships to evolve and become sacred. It is no small task. Spiritual wisdom isn’t about great philosophies and ideas, but about how we walk on the earth. In the Native American tradition, we call it the Great Red Way. How […]

Awakening From the Dream

A liberated being has woken from the dream. In liberation we realize we are free to move in any direction, experiencing everything as multidimensional beings in multidimensional ways. An awake person is alive. We are the expression of God as life. Through the Divine Force (the kundalini or the ruach ha’kodesh), the Divine Urge is activated. It just pulls you along. The awakening of the Divine Urge, as the awakening of the kundalini, is an act of grace. It is the divine kiss that begins a love affair with God. We have built an entire way of life based on […]

Magnesium: The Must-Have Mineral

Magnesium

Magnesium, the relaxer mineral, is one of the most important minerals. Magnesium is important for all muscles, heart function, and the digestive system. Magnesium deficiency is associated with a chronic stress state and decreased adrenaline function. More than 80 percent of the population is deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is very important in the treatment of all people with chronic exhaustion, adrenal exhaustion, and depression. It is very important for the optimization of neurotransmitter function. Almost all the clients seen at the Tree of Life are deficient in magnesium. This is particularly true with people who are experiencing tension, anxiety, adrenal […]

Airplane (or airport!) Yoga

Airplane Yoga

This is an excerpt from Dr. Cousens’ book, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine: In the process of working out the best overall exercise system for airplane travel I have sought the guidance and direct input of Kali Ray, a Master Yogini, who is the founder of Kali Ray TriYoga®. (See Resources Directory.) It is said that yogis of old became so accomplished in their spiritual practices that they developed special powers, including the ability to fly. However, in the West, since the technology already exists for people to fly at high speeds and with a lot less personal self-mastery than the […]

A Vegan Diet is Safe for Children

Vegan Diet for Kids

Research initiated by myself and completed by graduates of Cousens’ School of Holistic Wellness, involving 119 vegan children, whose diets comprised an average of 80% live food and 20% vegan cooked food, suggests that a vegan, live-food diet is quite safe for children. Vegan parents, who ate approximately 80% live food during gestation, had newborns with an average in the upper 58th percentile for weight. These newborns were in the upper 88th percentile for length, and their body mass index (BMI, comparing weight to height) was in the upper 71st percentile. Although height, weight, and BMI do not entirely define […]

7 Steps to Prevent Jet Stress

Airplane Travel

An excerpt from Dr. Cousens book, Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine: The prevention of jet stress begins with maintaining good health as a prerequisite before traveling. The next level of prevention is stabilizing cellular, organ, endocrine, tissue, nervous system, and brain functioning while on the airplane. The stability and integrity of the subtle energy centers and acupuncture meridians also need support. Prevention of jet stress is accomplished using a blend of approaches that protect cellular integrity from both in-flight stress and the disruption of biological rhythms. The jet stress program I have developed has seven steps. The fundamental idea is […]
