Mucoid plaque and one way to take it out...

Hi friends,

today as i was scrolling down facebook, i found this amazing woman(Jes Sie), that has done a miraculous cleanse by herself. She gave me permission to write her story in my blog for inspiration of others.
This is a cheap and difficult at the same way to detox the colon.... but hey, after these results, i think its worth it...
so here is how she did it...

She started Juicing for 2 weeks, drinking her urine (all of it) at the same time. She used enemas with aged urine everyday. Between day 10 - 14 on juices she started using bentonite clay and psyllium husk one teaspoon of each in a cup of water on day one and then two glasses the next day and so on, she kept increasing the dose everyday for 6 days. You can get the clay and psyllium everywhere in health food stores or in pharmacies. The juice loosens the plaque and the enemas are clearing the bowels. The plaque is coming out after the first day of clay.

Juice: Apples, celery, parsley, cilantro, lemon and ginger

There are many ways to clean your colon, this is one of them and its a powerful one, for warrior spirits. But there are lighter and softer ways too! My job is a detox expert and i use many different ways to support a clean colon. I have a page in FB where i upload all the "treasures" that come out of my clients and is called Colon Cleanse, im on the making of my web site that will be one of the best in the field of detox! please join in the fb page and follow me for more crazy cleanses!!!

For this one thank you Jes Sie !!!

21st March Spring Solstice

OSHO SPEAKS ON HIS OWN ENLIGHTENMENT — 21st MARCH 1953
"I am reminded of the fateful day of twenty-first March, 1953. For many lives I had been working—working upon myself, struggling, doing whatsoever can be done—and nothing was happening.
Now I understand why nothing was happening. The very effort was the barrier, the very ladder was preventing, the very urge to seek was the obstacle. Not that one can reach without seeking. Seeking is needed, but then comes a point when seeking has to be dropped. The boat is needed to cross the river but then comes a moment when you have to get out of the boat and forget all about it and leave it behind. Effort is needed, without effort nothing is possible. And also only with effort, nothing is possible.
Just before twenty-first March, 1953, seven days before, I stopped working on myself. A moment comes when you see the whole futility of effort. You have done all that you can do and nothing is happening. You have done all that is humanly possible. Then what else can you do? In sheer helplessness one drops all search.
And the day the search stopped, the day I was not seeking for something, the day I was not expecting something to happen, it started happening. A new energy arose—out of nowhere. It was not coming from any source. It was coming from nowhere and everywhere. It was in the trees and in the rocks and the sky and the sun and the air—it was everywhere. And I was seeking so hard, and I was thinking it is very far away. And it was so near and so close.
Just because I was seeking I had become incapable of seeing the near. Seeking is always for the far, seeking is always for the distant—and it was not distant. I had become far-sighted, I had lost the near-sightedness. The eyes had become focussed on the far away, the horizon, and they had lost the quality to see that which is just close, surrounding you.
The day effort ceased, I also ceased. Because you cannot exist without effort, and you cannot exist without desire, and you cannot exist without striving.
The phenomenon of the ego, of the self, is not a thing, it is a process. It is not a substance sitting there inside you; you have to create it each moment. It is like pedalling bicycle. If you pedal it goes on and on, if you don't pedal it stops. It may go a little because of the past momentum, but the moment you stop pedalling, in fact the bicycle starts stopping. It has no more energy, no more power to go anywhere. It is going to fall and collapse.
The ego exists because we go on pedalling desire, because we go on striving to get something, because we go on jumping ahead of ourselves. That is the very phenomenon of the ego—the jump ahead of yourself, the jump in the future, the jump in the tomorrow. The jump in the non-existential creates the ego. Because it comes out of the non-existential it is like a mirage. It consists only of desire and nothing else. It consists only of thirst and nothing else.
The ego is not in the present, it is in the future. If you are in the future, then ego seems to be very substantial. If you are in the present the ego is a mirage, it starts disappearing.
The day I stopped seeking... and it is not right to say that I stopped seeking, better will be to say the day seeking stopped. Let me repeat it: the better way to say it is the day the seeking stopped. Because if I stop it then I am there again. Now stopping becomes my effort, now stopping becomes my desire, and desire goes on existing in a very subtle way.
You cannot stop desire; you can only understand it. In the very understanding is the stopping of it. Remember, nobody can stop desiring, and the reality happens only when desire stops.
So this is the dilemma. What to do? Desire is there and Buddhas go on saying desire has to be stopped, and they go on saying in the next breath that you cannot stop desire. So what to do? You put people in a dilemma. They are in desire, certainly. You say it has to be stopped—okay. And then you say it cannot be stopped. Then what is to be done?
The desire has to be understood. You can understand it, you can just see the futility of it. A direct perception is needed, an immediate penetration is needed. Look into desire, just see what it is, and you will see the falsity of it, and you will see it is non-existential. And desire drops and something drops simultaneously within you.
Desire and the ego exist in cooperation, they coordinate. The ego cannot exist without desire, the desire cannot exist without the ego. Desire is projected ego, ego is introjected desire. They are together, two aspects of one phenomenon.
The day desiring stopped, I felt very hopeless and helpless. No hope because no future. Nothing to hope because all hoping has proved futile, it leads nowhere. You go in rounds. It goes on dangling in front of you, it goes on creating new mirages, it goes on calling you, 'Come on, run fast, you will reach.' But howsoever fast you run you never reach.
That's why Buddha calls it a mirage. It is like the horizon that you see around the earth. It appears but it is not there. If you go it goes on running from you. The faster you run, the faster it moves away. The slower you go, the slower it moves away. But one thing is certain—the distance between you and the horizon remains absolutely the same. Not even a single inch can you reduce the distance between you and the horizon.
You cannot reduce the distance between you and your hope. Hope is horizon. You try to bridge yourself with the horizon, with the hope, with a projected desire. The desire is a bridge, a dream bridge—because the horizon exists not, so you cannot make a bridge towards it, you can only dream about the bridge. You cannot be joined with the non-existential.
The day the desire stopped, the day I looked and realized into it, it simply was futile. I was helpless and hopeless. But that very moment something started happening. The same started happening for which for many lives I was working and it was not happening.
In your hopelessness is the only hope, and in your desirelessness is your only fulfillment, and in your tremendous helplessness suddenly the whole existence starts helping you.
It is waiting. When it sees that you are working on your own, it does not interfere. It waits. It can wait infinitely because there is no hurry for it. It is eternity. The moment you are not on your own, the moment you drop, the moment you disappear, the whole existence rushes towards you, enters you. And for the first time things start happening.
Seven days I lived in a very hopeless and helpless state, but at the same time something was arising. When I say hopeless I don't mean what you mean by the word hopeless. I simply mean there was no hope in me. Hope was absent. I am not saying that I was hopeless and sad. I was happy in fact, I was very tranquil, calm and collected and centered. Hopeless, but in a totally new meaning. There was no hope, so how could there be hopelessness. Both had disappeared.
The hopelessness was absolute and total. Hope had disappeared and with it its counterpart, hopelessness, had also disappeared. It was a totally new experience—of being without hope. It was not a negative state. I have to use words—but it was not a negative state. It was absolutely positive. It was not just absence, a presence was felt. Something was overflowing in me, overflooding me.
And when I say I was helpless, I don't mean the word in the dictionary-sense. I simply say I was selfless. That's what I mean when I say helpless. I have recognized the fact that I am not, so I cannot depend on myself, so I cannot stand on my own ground — there was no ground underneath. I was in an abyss... bottomless abyss. But there was no fear because there was nothing to protect. There was no fear because there was nobody to be afraid.
Those seven days were of tremendous transformation, total transformation. And the last day the presence of a totally new energy, a new light and new delight, became so intense that it was almost unbearable—as if I was exploding, as if I was going mad with blissfulness. The new generation in the West has the right word for it—I was blissed out, stoned.
It was impossible to make any sense out of it, what was happening. It was a very non-sense world—difficult to figure it out, difficult to manage in categories, difficult to use words, languages, explanations. All scriptures appeared dead and all the words that have been used for this experience looked very pale, anaemic. This was so alive. It was like a tidal wave of bliss.
The whole day was strange, stunning, and it was a shattering experience. The past was disappearing, as if it had never belonged to me, as if I had read about it somewhere, as if I had dreamed about it, as if it was somebody else's story I have heard and somebody told it to me. I was becoming loose from my past, I was being uprooted from my history, I was losing my autobiography. I was becoming a non-being, what Buddha calls anatta. Boundaries were disappearing, distinctions were disappearing.
Mind was disappearing; it was millions of miles away. It was difficult to catch hold of it, it was rushing farther and farther away, and there was no urge to keep it close. I was simply indifferent about it all. It was okay. There was no urge to remain continuous with the past.
By the evening it became so difficult to bear it—it was hurting, it was painful. It was like when a woman goes into labour when a child is to be born, and the woman suffers tremendous pain—the birth pangs.
I used to go to sleep in those days near about twelve or one in the night, but that day it was impossible to remain awake. My eyes were closing, it was difficult to keep them open. Something was very imminent, something was going to happen. It was difficult to say what it was—maybe it is going to be my death—but there was no fear. I was ready for it. Those seven days had been so beautiful that I was ready to die, nothing more was needed. They had been so tremendously blissful, I was so contented, that if death was coming, it was welcome.
But something was going to happen—something like death, something very drastic, something which will be either a death or a new birth, a crucifixion or a resurrection—but something of tremendous import was around just by the corner. And it was impossible to keep my eyes open. I was drugged.
I went to sleep near about eight. It was not like sleep. Now I can understand what Patanjali means when he says that sleep and samadhi are similar. Only with one difference—that in samadhi you are fully awake and asleep also. Asleep and awake together, the whole body relaxed, every cell of the body totally relaxed, all functioning relaxed, and yet a light of awareness burns within you... clear, smokeless. You remain alert and yet relaxed, loose but fully awake. The body is in the deepest sleep possible and your consciousness is at its peak. The peak of consciousness and the valley of the body meet.
I went to sleep. It was a very strange sleep. The body was asleep, I was awake. It was so strange—as if one was torn apart into two directions, two dimensions; as if the polarity has become completely focused, as if I was both the polarities together... the positive and negative were meeting, sleep and awareness were meeting, death and life were meeting. That is the moment when you can say 'the creator and the creation meet.'
It was weird. For the first time it shocks you to the very roots, it shakes your foundations. You can never be the same after that experience; it brings a new vision to your life, a new quality.
Near about twelve my eyes suddenly opened—I had not opened them. The sleep was broken by something else. I felt a great presence around me in the room. It was a very small room. I felt a throbbing life all around me, a great vibration—almost like a hurricane, a great storm of light, joy, ecstasy. I was drowning in it.
It was so tremendously real that everything became unreal. The walls of the room became unreal, the house became unreal, my own body became unreal. Everything was unreal because now there was for the first time reality.
That's why when Buddha and Shankara say the world is maya, a mirage, it is difficult for us to understand. Because we know only this world, we don't have any comparison. This is the only reality we know. What are these people talking about—this is maya, illusion? This is the only reality. Unless you come to know the really real, their words cannot be understood, their words remain theoretical. They look like hypotheses. Maybe this man is propounding a philosophy—'The world is unreal'.
When Berkley in the West said that the world is unreal, he was walking with one of his friends, a very logical man; the friend was almost a skeptic. He took a stone from the road and hit Berkley's feet hard. Berkley screamed, blood rushed out, and the skeptic said, 'Now, the world is unreal? You say the world is unreal?—then why did you scream? This stone is unreal? - then why did you scream? Then why are you holding your leg and why are you showing so much pain and anguish on your face. Stop this? It is all unreal.
Now this type of man cannot understand what Buddha means when he says the world is a mirage. He does not mean that you can pass through the wall. He is not saying this—that you can eat stones and it will make no difference whether you eat bread or stones. He is not saying that.
He is saying that there is a reality. Once you come to know it, this so-called reality simply pales out, simply becomes unreal. With a higher reality in vision the comparison arises, not otherwise.
In the dream; the dream is real. You dream every night. Dream is one of the greatest activities that you go on doing. If you live sixty years, twenty years you will sleep and almost ten years you will dream. Ten years in a life—nothing else do you do so much. Ten years of continuous dreaming—just think about it. And every night.... And every morning you say it was unreal, and again in the night when you dream, dream becomes real.
In a dream it is so difficult to remember that this is a dream. But in the morning it is so easy. What happens? You are the same person. In the dream there is only one reality. How to compare? How to say it is unreal? Compared to what? It is the only reality. Everything is as unreal as everything else so there is no comparison. In the morning when you open your eyes another reality is there. Now you can say it was all unreal. Compared to this reality, dream becomes unreal.
There is an awakening—compared to THAT reality of THAT awakening, this whole reality becomes unreal.
That night for the first time I understood the meaning of the word maya. Not that I had not known the word before, not that I was not aware of the meaning of the word. As you are aware, I was also aware of the meaning—but I had never understood it before. How can you understand without experience?
That night another reality opened its door, another dimension became available. Suddenly it was there, the other reality, the separate reality, the really real, or whatsoever you want to call it—call it god, call it truth, call it dhamma, call it tao, or whatsoever you will. It was nameless. But it was there—so opaque, so transparent, and yet so solid one could have touched it. It was almost suffocating me in that room. It was too much and I was not yet capable of absorbing it.
A deep urge arose in me to rush out of the room, to go under the sky—it was suffocating me. It was too much! It will kill me! If I had remained a few moments more, it would have suffocated me—it looked like that.
I rushed out of the room, came out in the street. A great urge was there just to be under the sky with the stars, with the trees, with the earth... to be with nature. And immediately as I came out, the feeling of being suffocated disappeared. It was too small a place for such a big phenomenon. Even the sky is a small place for that big phenomenon. It is bigger than the sky. Even the sky is not the limit for it. But then I felt more at ease.
I walked towards the nearest garden. It was a totally new walk, as if gravitation had disappeared. I was walking, or I was running, or I was simply flying; it was difficult to decide. There was no gravitation, I was feeling weightless—as if some energy was taking me. I was in the hands of some other energy.
For the first time I was not alone, for the first time I was no more an individual, for the first time the drop has come and fallen into the ocean. Now the whole ocean was mine, I was the ocean. There was no limitation. A tremendous power arose as if I could do anything whatsoever. I was not there, only the power was there.
I reached to the garden where I used to go every day. The garden was closed, closed for the night. It was too late, it was almost one o'clock in the night. The gardeners were fast asleep. I had to enter the garden like a thief, I had to climb the gate. But something was pulling me towards the garden. It was not within my capacity to prevent myself. I was just floating.
That's what I mean when I say again and again 'float with the river, don't push the river'. I was relaxed, I was in a let-go. I was not there. IT was there, call it god—god was there.
I would like to call it IT, because god is too human a word, and has become too dirty by too much use, has become too polluted by so many people. Christians, Hindus, Mohammedans, priests and politicians—they all have corrupted the beauty of the word. So let me call it IT. IT was there and I was just carried away... carried by a tidal wave.
The moment I entered the garden everything became luminous, it was all over the place—the benediction, the blessedness. I could see the trees for the first time—their green, their life, their very sap running. The whole garden was asleep, the trees were asleep. But I could see the whole garden alive, even the small grass leaves were so beautiful.
I looked around. One tree was tremendously luminous—the maulshree tree. It attracted me, it pulled me towards itself. I had not chosen it, god himself has chosen it. I went to the tree, I sat under the tree. As I sat there things started settling. The whole universe became a benediction.
It is difficult to say how long I was in that state. When I went back home it was four o'clock in the morning, so I must have been there by clock time at least three hours—but it was infinity. It had nothing to do with clock time. It was timeless.
Those three hours became the whole eternity, endless eternity. There was no time, there was no passage of time; it was the virgin reality—uncorrupted, untouchable, unmeasurable.
And that day something happened that has continued—not as a continuity—but it has still continued as an undercurrent. Not as a permanency—each moment it has been happening again and again. It has been a miracle each moment.
That night... and since that night I have never been in the body. I am hovering around it. I became tremendously powerful and at the same time very fragile. I became very strong, but that strength is not the strength of a Mohammed Ali.
That strength is not the strength of a rock, that strength is the strength of a rose flower—so fragile in his strength... so fragile, so sensitive, so delicate.
The rock will be there, the flower can go any moment, but still the flower is stronger than the rock because it is more alive. Or, the strength of a dewdrop on a leaf of grass just shining; in the morning sun—so beautiful, so precious, and yet can slip any moment. So incomparable in its grace, but a small breeze can come and the dewdrop can slip and be lost forever.
Buddhas have a strength which is not of this world. Their strength is totally of love... Like a rose flower or a dewdrop. Their strength is very fragile, vulnerable. Their strength is the strength of life not of death. Their power is not of that which kills; their power is of that which creates. Their power is not of violence, aggression; their power is that of compassion.
But I have never been in the body again, I am just hovering around the body. And that's why I say it has been a tremendous miracle. Each moment I am surprised I am still here, I should not be. I should have left any moment, still I am here. Every morning I open my eyes and I say, 'So, again I am still here?' Because it seems almost impossible. The miracle has been a continuity.
Just the other day somebody asked a question—'Osho, you are getting so fragile and delicate and so sensitive to the smells of hair oils and shampoos that it seems we will not be able to see you unless we all go bald.' By the way, nothing is wrong with being bald—bald is beautiful. Just as 'black is beautiful', so 'bald is beautiful'. But that is true and you have to be careful about it.
I am fragile, delicate and sensitive. That is my strength. If you throw a rock at a flower nothing will happen to the rock, the flower will be gone. But still you cannot say that the rock is more powerful than the flower. The flower will be gone because the flower was alive. And the rock—nothing will happen to it because it is dead. The flower will be gone because the flower has no strength to destroy. The flower will simply disappear and give way to the rock. The rock has a power to destroy because the rock is dead.
Remember, since that day I have never been in the body really; just a delicate thread joins me with the body. And I am continuously surprised that somehow the whole must be willing me to be here, because I am no more here with my own strength, I am no more here on my own. It must be the will of the whole to keep me here, to allow me to linger a little more on this shore. Maybe the whole wants to share something with you through me.
Since that day the world is unreal. Another world has been revealed. When I say the world is unreal I don't mean that these trees are unreal. These trees are absolutely real—but the way you see these trees is unreal. These trees are not unreal in themselves—they exist in god, they exist in absolute reality—but the way you see them you never see them; you are seeing something else, a mirage.
You create your own dream around you and unless you become awake you will continue to dream. The world is unreal because the world that you know is the world of your dreams. When dreams drop and you simply encounter the world that is there, then the real world.
There are not two things, god and the world. God is the world if you have eyes, clear eyes, without any dreams, without any dust of the dreams, without any haze of sleep; if you have clear eyes, clarity, perceptiveness, there is only god.
Then somewhere god is a green tree, and somewhere else god is a shining star, and somewhere else god is a cuckoo, and somewhere else god is a flower, and somewhere else a child and somewhere else a river—then only god is. The moment you start seeing, only god is.
But right now whatsoever you see is not the truth, it is a projected lie. That is the meaning of a mirage. And once you see, even for a single split moment, if you can see, if you can allow yourself to see, you will find immense benediction present all over, everywhere—in the clouds, in the sun, on the earth.
This is a beautiful world. But I am not talking about your world, I am talking about my world. Your world is very ugly, your world is your world created by a self, your world is a projected world. You are using the real world as a screen and projecting your own ideas on it.
When I say the world is real, the world is tremendously beautiful, the world is luminous with infinity, the world is light and delight, it is a celebration, I mean my world—or your world if you drop your dreams.
When you drop your dreams you see the same world as any Buddha has ever seen. When you dream you dream privately. Have you watched it?—that dreams are private. You cannot share them even with your beloved. You cannot invite your wife to your dream—or your husband, or your friend. You cannot say, 'Now, please come tonight in my dream. I would like to see the dream together.' It is not possible. Dream is a private thing, hence it is illusory, it has no objective reality.
God is a universal thing. Once you come out of your private dreams, it is there. It has been always there. Once your eyes are clear, a sudden illumination—suddenly you are overflooded with beauty, grandeur and grace. That is the goal, that is the destiny.
Let me repeat. Without effort you will never reach it, with effort nobody has ever reached it. You will need great effort, and only then there comes a moment.when effort becomes futile. But it becomes futile only when you have come to the very peak of it, never before it. When you have come to the very pinnacle of your effort—all that you can do you have done—then suddenly there is no need to do anything any more. You drop the effort.
But nobody can drop it in the middle, it can be dropped only at the extreme end. So go to the extreme end if you want to drop it. Hence I go on insisting: make as much effort as you can, put your whole energy and total heart in it, so that one day you can see—now effort is not going to lead me anywhere. And that day it will not be you who will drop the effort, it drops on its own accord. And when it drops on its own accord, meditation happens.
Meditation is not a result of your efforts, meditation is a happening. When your efforts drop, suddenly meditation is there... the benediction of it, the blessedness of it, the glory of it. It is there like a presence... luminous, surrounding you and surrounding everything. It fills the whole earth and the whole sky.
That meditation cannot be created by human effort. Human effort is too limited. That blessedness is so infinite. You cannot manipulate it. It can happen only when you are in a tremendous surrender. When you are not there only then it can happen. When you are a no-self—no desire, not going anywhere—when you are just herenow, not doing anything in particular, just being, it happens. And it comes in waves and the waves become tidal. It comes like a storm, and takes you away into a totally new reality.
But first you have to do all that you can do, and then you have to learn non-doing. The doing of the non-doing is the greatest doing, and the effort of effortlessness is the greatest effort.
Your meditation that you create by chanting a mantra or by sitting quiet and still and forcing yourself, is a very mediocre meditation. It is created by you, it cannot be bigger than you. It is homemade, and the maker is always bigger than the made. You have made it by sitting, forcing in a yoga posture, chanting 'rama, rama, rama' or anything—'blah, blah, blah'—anything. You have forced the mind to become still.
It is a forced stillness. It is not that quiet that comes when you are not there. It is not that silence which comes when you are almost non-existential. It is not that beautitude which descends on you like a dove.
It is said when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River, god descended in him, or the holy ghost descended in him like a dove. Yes, that is exactly so. When you are not there peace descends in you... fluttering like a dove... reaches in your heart and abides there and abides there forever.
You are your undoing, you are the barrier. Meditation is when the meditator is not. When the mind ceases with all its activities—seeing that they are futile—then the unknown penetrates you, overwhelms you.
The mind must cease for god to be. Knowledge must cease for knowing to be. You must disappear, you must give way. You must become empty, then only you can be full.
That night I became empty and became full. I became non-existential and became existence. That night I died and was reborn. But the one that was reborn has nothing to do with that which died, it is a discontinuous thing. On the surface it looks continuous but it is discontinuous. The one who died, died totally; nothing of him has remained.
Believe me, nothing of him has remained, not even a shadow. It died totally, utterly. It is not that I am just a modified RUP, transformed, modified form, transformed form of the old. No, there has been no continuity. That day of March twenty-first, the person who had lived for many many lives, for millennia, simply died. Another being, absolutely new, not connected at all with the old, started to exist.
Religion just gives you a total death. Maybe that's why the whole day previous to that happening I was feeling some urgency like death, as if I am going to die—and I really died. I have known many other deaths but they were nothing compared to it, they were partial deaths.
Sometimes the body died, sometimes a part of the mind died, sometimes a part of the ego died, but as far as the person was concerned, it remained. Renovated many times, decorated many times, changed a little bit here and there, but it remained, the continuity remained.
That night the death was total. It was a date with death and god simultaneously."

Native Americans herbs


These are the natural plants that provide amazing health benefits:
Big Stretch (Wild Ginger)
Cherokee tribe believed that the mild tea from the root of wild ginger stimulates digestion, and treats the upset stomach, colic, and intestinal gas. Also, the strong tea from the root of wild ginger can eliminate secretion from the lungs.
Another Native American tribe, The Meskwaki, cured earaches by using crushed, steeped stems of wild ginger. The rootstocks can replace regular ginger and flowers as flavoring for numerous recipes you prepare.
Hummingbird Blossom (Buck Brush)
The Cherokee used this medicinal plant to treat mouth and throat issues, inflammation, cysts, and fibroid tumors, and it has been found to regulate high blood pressure and treat lymphatic blockages.
The Cherokee usually used it as a diuretic to stimulate the function of the kidneys, as well as in the case of:
  • enlarged spleens
  • hemorrhoids
  • inflamed tonsils
  • menstrual bleeding
  • enlarged lymph nodes
The Cherokee would steep the leave and flowers in a boiling water for 5 minutes and then consumed it warm in order to obtain best results.
Pull Out a Sticker (Greenbriar)
This plant’s roots are rich in starch, which is full of calories, but has a strange flavor. The stems and leaves are high in numerous minerals and vitamins. As it has a rubbery texture, you can use its roots like potatoes.
This plant has been used as a mild diuretic in the case of urinary infections and to purify the blood. Its bark and leaves have also been used for the preparation of an ointment which heals burns and minor sores.
Its leaves can be added to tea in order to treat arthritis, and the berries can be either consumed raw, or made into jam.
Mint
Mint is extremely popular nowadays, and it is often consumed in the form of a tea. However, only a few know that it has strong antioxidant properties and that it is high in vitamin C, A, fiber, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus.
It has been used by the Cherokee to improve digestion, and its leaves were made into ointments, crushed and applied as cold compresses, or added to baths in order to treat skin itchiness.
Moreover, its leaves and stems were also used as a treatment for high blood pressure. You can also prepare a mint water to treat your cracked nipples while breastfeeding!
Blackberry
This has been the most popular medicine in the case of an upset stomach, but it also has numerous other uses. It can be used to relieve bleeding gums if you chew the leaves.
You can make a cough syrup by preparing a decoction from the roots, sweetened with maple syrup or honey. The strong tea from its root reduces the swelling of the joints and tissues.
These delicious berries are rich in important nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin K, riboflavin, thiamine, folate, and niacin, as well as potassium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous. Furthermore, they are abundant in essential amino acids and dietary fiber.
These are some other benefits of this plant:
  • strengthened immune system
  • relief from endothelial dysfunction
  • cancer prevention
  • healthy functioning of the heart
  • improved digestion
Cattail
This plant has been regarded as a potent preventative medicine, which is easily digested and promotes recovery from various health conditions.

Daily schedule for self care

For any reader to be here, reading this, it means that she/he has heard or researched enough about his well being, with so many information, advices, on the net, do this, do that its always a challenge to find your own personal daily routine that will win you some health and well being. Here are some tips for changing YOUR routine, YOUR life-style, finding YOUR well being! Well being is an inner job.


Writing down the present moment (consciousness):

My job the past 17 years has been to create powerful programs for people that can be used in the daily. My understanding is that the programs must change every 3-6 months and fit in the needs of everyone, needs change, situations change and we need to be adopting to all the new changes. If nothing external change try to keep it for a full year and watch what happens to your health.
Most people do not even know where they stand, what they want, what is wrong and how to move on for their well being. Having this as a starting point, the first step is always a reality check. Finding out where you are right now, in your life, what your needs are, what the situations that you are in right now, allows you to do, how deep, how quick, how much you want to dive in.
Start by writing down everything, where you live, with whom, how much do you make per month, how many time you would like to spend on yourself, how healthy you eat, what kind of water you drink, are you exercising? are you happy with your job? are you happy with your life? and what is missing from your life? what would you like to do in the year that is coming, everything that you can think. Write it in a clean note book and keep this note book till the end of the process. Knowing your present moment, accepting what is consciously, is another key for your well being.


Flow of movement (meditation) in anything is one major key for well being:

Is good to find what you like to do in general but also specifically using your hands like cooking, ceramics, gardening, playing with toys, knitting, caressing, meditate, yoga, qigong, arts and crafts, playing or learning an instrument, exercising, paint, massage, dance, writing, cleaning the house, washing the car, whatever makes you use your hands is a plus to your well being. The reason is the mechanics behind it, when hands move in a continuous move, the body is utilizing its energy properly and when we move our hands and feet, in a continuous way, the kinetic machine that the body is, is functioning in its best. So we need those hands moving most of the day. It does not matter what you do, as long as you flow in the movement.  Let that settle in a bit. Flow of movement in anything is one major key for well being. Mopping the floor can be as strong as a chi-kung exercise if it is performed in a meditative way. Try to make the figure of 8, or the infinity symbol while mopping your floor, you will find that this effort keeps you concentrated, it energizes the floor, while you are diving deep and then mopping becomes your working meditation. Please do try this at home, you will have a very juicy energy.


Action for self care:

Continuing writing your daily issues, start from the morning routines, till the time you go to bed. Write down how you wake up, how you take your breakfast, your lunch and dinners, how do you snack, how good is the water you drink? how many times do you go to the toilet. How well you sleep, why? what are your favorite foods, are you moving during the day? Do you have any health issues that your ancestors had? Find out who your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents were. Create your family tree, taking action, asking your family members to tell you about your ancestors relationships. Find out secrets and situations you never knew, we tend to repeat the history of our DNA, this taking action exercise will help you tremendously in realizing yourself!
When you write everything down, take one by one the routines and try to make it as lighter as possible for you in this moment. For example: waking up later than 9.00am every day is not healthy. If you wake up at 10.00am, change this first step to waking up at 9.00am and watch the results.


Program:

First thing in the morning the best is to sit in the head of your bed and close your eyes for 10-20min as this is the best time for deepening your meditation.
Second best thing to do is drink good quality water, drink from 200ml to 600ml every day for one year, watch what happens to your health.
Try to get the best quality of water that you can find within your limits(ask me which one is the best in my email aponiraw@gmail.com or go to my page on Face Book Anna Korakaki).

If you eat heavy breakfast and you enjoy it - do not stop eating it but instead try having an apple or a fruit 15-20min before the full breakfast.
After breakfast take 10-20min to relax before rushing to work to allow the food to go down. If you drive have nice music that you LOVE playin and start the day in beauty.

After each meal wait before eating or drinking anything else for 2,5 hours. Then have a snack, dessert, fruits or drinks (if you want to work on line and travel, ask me how in my email aponiraw@gmail.com or my Face book page Anna Korakaki).

Try walking for 15-20min around 11.00am -12.00pm every noon.
Try reading something every day, even if it is for 20 min. (maybe lunch break?)
In the afternoon try using your hands consciously in creating things, making something, clean, touch or anything you feel like. After using your hands consciously try to have a nap, or rest even if it is for 20min, if you can not take this nap, try instead massage your feet by yourself (many tutorials of self feet massage in youtube!).

For all your meals follow an organic diet and try to do fasting or detox more than one time per year. Eat whatever makes you feel happy, in the rule we put above, that after every meal you wait 2,5 hours before eating or drinking anything else. If you have eaten enough meat in your life and want to stop it for at least a year or so, it is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. If you have been vegetarian and want to stop dairy, now is a good time to start! LOVE your food! If there is nothing god to eat one day, then it is a good day to fast.

When it is about 17.00 - 18.00 ask yourself if you have drunk more than 1 lit. of clean water this day and if not, try to drink at least 1,50 - 2,00 till the end of the day.

If you have not related to anyone this day in a meaningful way, is good to call someone or go for a walk with friends. Make it a daily habit that you speak to people in a meaningful way.

De-cluttering, if it is a Saturday or a Sunday and you have followed the program all the week, then you might be feeling like de-cluttering your environment. Make a give-away afternoon date or ex-changing date with friends and give anything you do not use the past year. From books, to clothes, to anything that you might be storing in your house! Clean up, make room for creativity!

Another weekend activity can be go to nature and walk barefoot for more grounding. This is something that you could do every day if you have the option, it heals so many things to walk barefoot and watch the sunrise and sunset!

If you are overburden with activities, try cut some and find more time for yourself and loved ones, you never know when you will have this opportunity again, life is not a given.
Another option is to leave some activities for others, for example, if you had enough of your salsa lessons, leave the dancing for a while and try to walk to your neighborhood or another one, and get the homeless food to eat. Make an appointment with friends in need or your parents and family.Try to be of service to others in your free time, or make free time in order to be in service to the others, this is found to be a great anti-depressant medicine. When you feel blocked or your energy is low, try doing something for others, it will lift your spirit to the skies and you will be filled with energy and love!

Try to have your last meal-snack of the day around sunset for better digestion and better sleep. Before bed sit or lay down for 5-10min to forget your worries and sleep peacefully. Sleep at least 8 hours every night, in order to wake up fully energized the next morning. If your body needs more hours to rest, give it an earlier time for bed!

Thank you, enjoy your life & enjoy being of service for others.

Testimonial by Greta Negri

Greece. It's here that I learned and experienced a looot of important lessons for my life.💙•

One of the most important ones was to learn how to clean my body inside and not only outside. That's how I got rid of my intestine problems 4 years ago.•
• 
I did a very intense detox-week at @okreblueyogaparos , where @sasyparoswas teaching Yoga and @noniaponi was the therapist for the colon cleanse. Sasy is one of the best Yogateachers and Aponi one of the best Therapists I know. Both a big inspiration for me and I'm forever thankful to them.💓•

Since my first cleanse I try to do a cleanse once a year. Right now I'm again doing an intense cleanse with Aponi, this time in Italy, at home.•

I can promise you that you will never regret doing a deep cleanse. I experienced a deep emotional and physical healing. You will feel your body and sensations and perceive everything around you clearly. It feels like waking up.•

After the first cleanse my period pain, skin problems and much more disappeared, even my taste changed completely: many things I didn't like to eat before the cleanse, became my favorite foods after the cleanse. 
You will learn to listen to your body and intuition and know exactly what is toxic and what is good for you. All this has an impact on you but also on the environment because you will choose what you buy and consume consciously. 
Still today it feels like a miracle to me. It changed my life. And everytime I do it I discover something new about myself.

Namste ☀️💚•

Η καλύτερη vegan spaghetti!

Καλησπέρα!

Θα φτιάξουμε μια πεντανόστιμη συνταγή για vegan spaghetti!

Η μακαρονάδα μας σήμερα έχει ως εξής...

Σερβίρει 2 άτομα.
Ιδανικά χρησιμοποιούμε το dinkel spaghetti ή σκληρό για καλύτερα αποτελέσματα. Αναλογη ποσότητα για 2 πιάτα.
Αφού βράσει al dente κατεβάζουμε απο τη φωτιά και -σημαντικό- δεν πρσθέτουμε λάδι, απλώς το στραγγίζουμε και το αφήνουμε στην κατσαρόλα, μακριά απο το μάτι που καίει.

Για την σάλτσα θα χρειαστούμε ένα μεγαλούτσικο και βαθύ τηγάνι όπου θα βάλουμε μέσα 2 μεγ. κουτ. ελαιόλαδο και θα κόψουμε
1 κόκκινο μεσαίο ολόκληρο κρεμύδι
1-2 κουτ. γλυκού ρίγανη
1 κουτ.γλυκού πάστα μίσο λευκό(γλυκό)
και λίγο αλάτι

σοτάρουμε τα υλικά μέχρι να μαλακώσουν τα κρεμύδια, αν εξαφανιστεί το λάδι, προσθέτουμε ένα σφηνάκι νερό και συνεχίζουμε το σοτάρισμα.

Όταν είναι έτοιμα τα λαχανικά μας, προσθέτουμε βιολογικό νερουλό πολτό ντομάτας 200ml την οποία την έχουμε αραιώσει ξανά σε ακόμα 400-500ml νεράκι ή φρέσκια τριμμένη ντομάτα κατά προτίμηση, στην ίδια ποσότητα.

Ψήνεται σε 15-20λ περίπου με ανοιχτό καπάκι για να δέσει γρήγορα.

Για το σερβίρισμα,
αφού σερβίρουμε τα μακαρόνια και βάλουμε την σάλτσα απο πάνω,
κόβουμε ένα ώριμο αλλά όχι να λιώνει αβοκάντο στη μέση και με ένα μαχαίρι κόβουμε το αβοκάντο σε λωρίδες και μετά τετραγωνάκια που απλώνουμε απο πάνω.

Τόσο νόστιμη!!
Καλή απόλαυση,

Άννα Κορακάκη

Οδηγός Χορτοφαγίας Για Αρχάριους


Οδηγός Χορτοφαγίας Για Αρχάριους

Πολύς κόσμος πιστεύει ότι το να γίνεις βίγκαν είναι κάτι δύσκολο. Ότι δεν θα τρως πλέον νόστιμα φαγητά, ότι θα σου λείπουν πολύτιμες ουσίες ή ό,τι άλλο τυχαίνει να υποστηρίζουν οι σχετικοί αστικοί μύθοι.

Ευτυχώς τα πράγματα είναι πολύ πιο απλά. Αν αναρωτιέσαι από που θα ξεκινήσεις, για αρχή κατέβασε αυτά τα δύο αρχεία:

Χορτοφαγικός Οδηγός Για Να Ξεκινήσετε
https://www.greekvegans.gr/downloads/Xortofagikos-odigos.pdf

και

Χορτοφαγικός Οδηγός της Ethos & Empathy
https://m.facebook.com/notes/ethos-empathy/367966813661461/

Χρήσιμες πληροφορίες, συμβουλές και υποστήριξη θα βρείτε αυτές εδώ τις ομάδες του Facebook

Vegan τρόπος ζωής - υποστήριξη-βοήθεια-απορίες

και

Ελληνικό Κίνημα Φυτοφαγίας

Αν θέλεις κάποιον ειδικό για συμβουλές διατροφής μπορείς να απευθυνθείς στην κυρία Δήμητρα Μακρυγιάννη που θα σε κατατοπίσει πλήρως:https://www.facebook.com/makrigiannidimitra

Εδώ θα βρεις μια λίστα με γιατρούς και διατροφολόγους φιλικούς στη φυτική διατροφή:www.facebook.com/groups/ELKIFY/permalink/726910687419212

ΣΗΜΑΝΤΙΚΟ: Οι φυτικές τροφές δεν περιέχουν Β12 η οποία είναι μια βιταμίνη απαραίτητη για τον οργανισμό. Πριν σταματήσεις να καταναλώνεις ζωικά θα πρέπει να πας στο φαρμακείο και να πάρετε συμπλήρωμα B12.

Μην κάνεις το λάθος και το αμελήσεις γιατί θα έχεις προβλήματα υγείας. Όσοι χορτοφάγοι δεν παίρνουν Β12 παθαίνουν ζημιές και μετά οι κρεατοφάγοι ισχυρίζονται ότι οι βίγκαν δεν είναι υγιείς (και έχουν και δίκιο).

Σε ό,τι αφορά το φαγητό σου, αν κάνεις μια αναζήτηση στο διαδίκτυο για βίγκαν ή νηστίσιμες συνταγές, θα βρεις άφθονες. Ενδεικτικά παραθετουμε το κανάλι Love is Vegan:www.youtube.com/c/LOVEISVEGAN

Επίσης κάποιες πολύ ενδιαφέρουσες συνταγές υπάρχουν εδώ: www.facebook.com/recipes/vegan-recipes

Σε κάθε περίπτωση αν δεν θέλεις να ζοριστείς, μπορείς να γίνεις πρώτα vegetarian και όταν δεις ότι δεν είναι και τίποτα δύσκολο να κόψεις εκτός από το κρέας και τα γαλακτοκομικά ώστε να γίνεις vegan.

Μια άλλη λύση είναι να τρως κρέας μόνο το σαββατοκύριακο. Και όταν θα δεις ότι δεν το χρειάζεσαι να το σταματήσεις τελείως. Ο καθένας μας ακολουθεί την δική του πορεία και τους δικούς του ρυθμούς.

Μην δίνεις σημασία σε όσους λένε ότι για να είσαι σωστός/πραγματικός/αυθεντικός κλπ. βίγκαν πρέπει να κάνεις ή να μην κάνεις το ένα ή άλλο. Οι απόψεις, για οποιοδήποτε θέμα, είναι σαν το ΑΦΜ. Ο καθενας έχει και από μία. Αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι πρέπει να τον πάρεις στα σοβαρά.

Κάνε μέχρι εκεί που μπορείς και μείωσε τα ζωικά από την καθημερινότητα σου όσο σου επιτρέπει ο χαρακτήρας και ο τρόπος ζωής σου. Ο καθένας ακολουθεί διαφορετική πορεία και με διαφορετικούς ρυθμούς. Αλλά κάθε μικρό βήμα έχει τη σημασία του. Μην το ξεχνάς αυτό!
