Dr. Cousens’ Blog

We live in an age of headlines and soundbites. The internet is packed full of information but typically runs low on wisdom. This is the reason I write such long and comprehensive blogs. My work is becoming known for its in depth analysis of today’s issues. My articles are repeated attempts to provide people with a substantial understanding of the issues at hand, and the wisdom to know how to address these issues in their personal lives. I typically provide an article summary, which distills the main points for those in a hurry. While some people think in soundbites, I tend to think in chapters and books. My approach is holistic, and, as such, requires that I present both a spiritual and a scientific overview in my ongoing mission of merging the heavens and the earth. As a scientist, a medical doctor, and an artist of consciousness, providing my readers with the option for depth is my way of serving humanity.

Instructions for Sprouting

sprouts6-1

Excerpt from Dr. Cousens’ book, Conscious Eating: There are several methods for sprouting, including using a glass jar, a sprouting tube, sprouting basket, sprouting bag, or organic soil. Generally, I recommend the glass jar method or organic soil, depending on the type of sprout. The glass jar method works well with all of the sprouts in the Conscious Eating recipes, except for buckwheat and sunflower sprouts (greens). These, as well as wheatgrass, are best grown in an organic soil base. People often enjoy growing a variety of sprouts in the same jar. Alfalfa and clover is one combination; fenugreek and […]

The Beauty of Skin Brushing

The skin is the largest organ in the body and aids tremendously in the detoxification process. Saunas and sweating have been shown to be one way of utilizing this huge organ but skin brushing is also effective.  Your skin is an organ of elimination. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin. Regular scrubbing is important because it unclogs pores allowing skin to release toxins trapped daily inside the body. Excerpt from There is a Cure for Diabetes by Dr. Gabriel […]

Spiritual Warriorship

fotolia_110620129

The unique walk is how we hold all of the levels within the heavens and the earth at the same time. We are multi-dimensional beings. This includes the physical, emotional, and mental planes, and the plane of direct knowing or the World of Atzilut. Integrating those levels is part of spiritual warriorship. Spiritual warriorship is a very important component of spiritual life.
