Sattvic Health Tips and Know-hows
For Body, Mind, Soul
Firstly, I present the requisite disclaimer in tacit bold letters, that I am not a medical or health professional, as we know it. I am, however, an advocate for healthy lifestyle and therefore what I share in my coming book, are collections of tried and tested home remedies, summaries of advice I’ve received from medical and alternative health professionals and that of my own research spanning well over a two decades. Therefore, this book reflects largely how I live my life and my own personal experience with the contents, having grown up with a lot of things; such that, if there was to be no more internet, medical or health books, I would still be able to draw from my own inner resources, as the knowledge have become a part of me.
The contents doesn’t market products or discount them, but merely strengthening that which people are already aware of, or have walked passed in Ethnic, Asian, Oriental, regular supermarkets and health food shops, but may not know how to benefit from them, ultimately. The adage ‘prevention is better than cure’ is a timeless pocket philosophy, which seems to have lost its value, when practically the whole planet is drowning in a sea of illnesses and dis (eases), attributed a lot to lack of knowledge in how to properly combine foods and live healthy.
Of course, many will frown and say, ‘excuse me, I’m living a healthy life,’ as the default defense mechanism is stimulated, but what does that really mean? One person’s ‘healthy lifestyle,’ may be death on the face of it to another, which makes it a term as meaningful as the word ‘spiritual,’ often used in cases of taking mind-altering substances. Still, people are entirely at liberty to live how they choose to live. I’m not here to judge. We either have a life worth living or live a life worth having. This book is one from which inspiration can be drawn and apply what’s applicable. It surrounds everyday ailments and targets everyday people.
I feel confident to speak on many areas of health, because of my own experiences and results from different treatment protocols, as well as, I come from a family background of productive people, some of whom were medical professionals. With as much deftness and clarity my limited faculties prevails upon me, I present the information which I feel is accessible, without delving into areas that one would otherwise need to be under professional medical guidance.
Utilising my past experience as a qualified Chef, also, I incorporate few references on how to prepare things, germane to diet. This manual contains everything that matters to me and dotted with Vedic references, because I’ve been affiliated with that culture since 1998 and counting. What is your reason for creating this manual?’ someone might ask. Primarily, it is my hope that kindred spirits can gain from any of the contents, which could prevent a mild ailment turning into something more severe. Not least, (having traveled the world extensively in the past and visited countless health and medical practitioners because of my own ill health), I was fortunate to gain a potpourri of knowledge which I believe could help someone.
I feel satisfied that my book differs to others on the market, simply for the fact that it’s diverse in knowledge, which everyone including infants, can benefit from and it’s personalized, as opposed to mere research work on paper. I was encouraged over the years (by people who know me and those with whom I have shared such knowledge), to make this manual available. But having fallen prey to unbearable distress with my head, so harrowing that it defies death, I didn’t have the motivation or brain power to undertake what presented itself to me, like an invitation to climb Mt. Everest.
In the back of my mind, I thought I would attempt it when I get better, but four years later, I still suffer from an unrelenting problem with my head, which haunts me 24 hours a day without as much as a few seconds break. Only recently, I finally found out by a comprehensive bioresonance test, that I’m afflicted with heavy metal toxemia. Now, I’m on an intensive heavy metal detox programme to eliminate them from every which part of my body they have lodge themselves… the journey continues. Yet, without falling back on the knowledge I’d gained throughout my life, I would be far worse or perhaps two foot in the grave.
There is a saying ‘don’t put away for tomorrow what is behind you, for you can wake up tomorrow with what’s behind you, in front of you.’ This is in essence, what happened. All the bits and pieces of paper I had jot things down on, over the years, were glaring at me to tidy it all up into this presentation. Though the term ‘physician, heal thyself,’ has sprung to mind on several occasions of my passing on many health tips to others, when ironically, I am not able to cure myself with all the knowledge I’ve accumulated, I’m still convinced that others can make use of it. To me, it’s like writing a will. Just because I’m suffering, doesn’t mean all this knowledge should go to waste. Knowledge is meant to be shared and if this is my little contribution in giving something back, then I will feel I have not come into this world for absolutely no reason and then die uselessly. Had I known what I know now, I might have saved much of my health from deteriorating to the degree it has, now.
Finally, as my last write(ous) words of introduction:
Gone are the days in which we could address general ailments with simple home remedies, having been almost lost like a piece of diamond in snow. Fear has replaced one’s innate sense of judgement, so we now have medical practices and hospitals flooded with a simple cold, because God forbid, it could lead to the ticket to one’s next incarnation. Therefore ‘seek medical advice from your Doctor,’ for everything under the sun, is the pulse of the climate we live in. As a matter of principle, I’m obliged to echo that mood, though I’m not one to subscribe to fear in any shades of grey. Nothing I present in this book, (especially of herbs and supplements) is to replace professional medical advice, if you feel there is something more serious with your health.
Again, whatever I share is from my own experience and what I’ve gathered over the years from health and medical professionals I’ve consulted with. No amount of money can buy back your health when it’s gone. I’m a living testimony to this. Always be mindful of your health and listen to your body. Never neglect its warning signals, as I’m paying for this, bitterly. It’s not totally up to medical advisers to take care of your health; you are. They are only trained so far and will only do so much and I say this without reservation, as when I recently had an in-depth and privately funded bio-resonance done, I finally realized that the so called ‘mental illness’ I was diagnosed with by conventional doctors, was not in fact my condition, but rather something more organic was shown up in my skull.
Use your sense of discretion and spirit of discernment, to take advantage of all the resources at your disposal and maintain your well-being in the best way you can. Mind, Body, Soul; they go hand in hand and even as we are not quintessentially these bodies, we need our body in a healthy condition as our vehicle in which to carry out our respective duties. Not everyone will appreciate the contents of this book, but such is the nature of this world. It is better to do my own duty even imperfectly, than to try to do another’s, perfectly. Not everybody will like a person or what they represent, but we proceed with conviction, because we believe in what we set out to do.
This is my third and perhaps final book; yet, I live in hope. All photos are mine and some of them are from the time, years ago before I fell ill with my head, when I was living in Denmark, attempting to compile a healthy-living cook book. I felt spiritually guided to complete this book, when the words on pages mirrored the whisperings of my heart.
Part 1 talks about health and how to tackle general ailments and Part 2 presents how to do or how to make things related to food, in this book. It’s punctuated with tips throughout and contain hidden secrets about food items and how to combine them properly. With everything and anything from how to successfully detox heavy metal from even the brain, reduce if not get rid of tinnitus, uterine fibroid tumours etc. to how to make things like your own home-made coconut oil, (presented with high quality photos and illustrations), this book promises something for everyone, including infants. It is also composed with a sense of humour. Wishing you good health and well-being.
Please see a sample from the book under ‘Recent Posts’ and for those who are just seeing my site for the first time, you may view my other two books also under ‘Recent Posts.’ The pictures in the sample are not edited but they will be in the final product, at which point I will make another post about it. Thank you…
Wisdom from the Dalai Lama
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
