This Month's Tip

How to increase your energy in 9 easy steps

Step 1:  "Breathe"
Step 2:  "Rest and Relaxation"
Step 3:  "Reset Your Aura Daily"
Step 4:  "The Power of Water"
Step 5:  "Reduce Your Stress"
Step 6:  "Exercise"
Step 7:  "Food"
Step 8:  "Structural Care"
Step 9:  "Goals and Dreams"

Step 4: The Power of Water

We are made mostly of water.  Next to the breath, water is your most important constituent.  While you can go for weeks without food (if you had to), you can only live for minutes without breathing and only days without water.

What is the magic of water?  It helps to maintain your balance of acid and base.  Water carries nutrients into your body and wastes out.  Water also helps to maintain the proper temperature of the body.

When you are under a lot of stress or need a quick energy boost, try the following:

Drink a large, cold glass of water.  Drink it from top to bottom without stopping.  Then go urinate.

Here's how it works.  By going to get the water you'll disengage from the stressful activity.  When you drink the water non-stop you'll change your rate of breathing—remember that the slower you breathe, the calmer you'll feel.  Making the water cold will change your body temperature and “cool you off,” helping dispel any anger or stress.

A lot of our stress and frustration is mediated by our nervous and hormone (messenger) systems.  By drinking water you change the hormone balance.  Similarly, when you urinate you also will change the water balance in your body. 

(Review last month's newsletter in the section Herbs and Nutrition for Health where I talk about how much water to drink)

Bonus Tip

Stop Depression With Water

Here's a quick and easy way to utilize the power of water.  When you're feeling fatigued, wash your face with cold water.  If you're feeling depressed, splash the cold water into your eyes.  This will quickly bring you into a new, more relaxed state.

Bonus Tip 2

Bedtime Secrets

Its often hard to get to sleep due to the fact that we haven't released the stress that has built up in us all day.  In addition to left nostril breathing  (click here to review this topic), use water:

Sit on the edge of your bathtub and turn on only the cold water.  Put your feet under the cold running water.  Briskly massage your feet using your feet:  rub your feet all over each other, rub the soles together.  After you've done this for 30-60 seconds, roughly dry and stimulate your feet with a coarse towel.

Feel refreshed?  Now enjoy your deep sleep!!

Herbs and Nutrition for Health

Drink your water(melon)

One of the most irritating problems you can have is a kidney or bladder infection.  Allopathic medicine recommends antibiotics routinely for these urinary tract infections.  Want to try an alternative method?

If you access to a juicer, juice watermelon (without the rind) and drink about one cup of the juice (diluted in half) 3-4 times daily.  This is very cleansing to the urinary tract, but be careful not to wander too far from the bathroom because watermelon is a potent diuretic!

Another recipe from the Ayurvedic tradition of medicine is to take 2 tablespoons of watermelon seeds and boil them for 5 minutes in a pint of water.  Turn off the heat and leave the pot uncovered and let it stand until cold.  Drink one cup 3-4 times per day during the acute phase.  After things have stabilized, drink 3-4 cups per week.  (Note:  Ayurvedic medicine says that this remedy is for women only.)

Wellness and Longevity
Reverse Your Aging, Increase Your Vitality

There are immutable universal laws like gravity.  Similarly, there are laws in nature that govern how our bodies work most efficiently.  When we ignore these principals of health we invite disease and aging.  Dr. Khalsa will explore the causes of disease and premature aging and the principle-centered health steps you can take to slow the natural progression of aging and disease.

We will cover the Three Steps to Total Well Being:

  • Determining your level of health now
  • Designing a health regimen tailored to your specific needs including exercise, diets for cleansing, the power of detoxifying, proper use of supplements, herbs and enzymes
  • Creating a lifestyle that supports long term wellness
This lecture will include exercises, foods and relaxation techniques that you can use immediately to enhance your well being and slow the aging process.

"I am very passionate about this course.  It is the cutting edge information on health, wellness and longevity that I have spent the last 25 years gathering and applying both personally and with my patients." — Dr. Khalsa
