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 2: Rest and Relaxation

To increase your energy you have to relax more.  There are many thousands of processes going on in your body every millisecond that require (and generate) tremendous amounts of energy.  But all that work needs constant monitoring and repair and garbage removal — no wonder we're often so tired! 

The most important step is planned, conscious relaxation time.  This doesn't include watching TV or reading the newspaper, but things like guided imagery tapes, meditation and sitting outside in the sunlight.

Try taking a nap as regularly as you can.  Lying in the position "corpse pose," take a short 11 minute nap.  Corpse pose is lying on your back, hands resting on your abdomen, feet slightly elevated (during nap time elevating the feet helps to get the blood back up to your head), covered with a light shawl or blanket.  To relax you into the nap quickly, watch your breath flow in and out through your nose.  Consciously slow down and expand the amount of breath you take in and exhale.  Even if you don't fall asleep you'll get up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.  p;



Bonus Tip

Creative Relaxation

Guided imagery is like hypnosis in that you listen to a tape of instructions on how to relax your body and mind.  Most tapes start with changing your focus from outside to inside by having you watch your breath rate and/or tensing and relaxing the major muscle groups.  Then you are guided on a mental journey to a place of beauty and inner peace.  The advantage of this type of relaxation is that you have to actively relax and it incorporates not only your body but mind and spirit, too.

A study was done where a group of people used guided imagery once a week for ten weeks.  After the ten weeks their levels of interferon (an enzyme the body makes that is critical to healthy immune function) has risen 48%!  Imagine what your health would be like if you could make the time to practice guided imagery two or three times a week (or even daily).

Create and record your own tape based on your own specific health, wealth or relaxation needs or ask a hypnotist to make one for you.  You can also purchase pre-recorded tapes that take you deeply into a relaxed state.

Ask about the tape we carry which I have found very useful for deep relaxation called "Journey to Health."



Herbs for Health

When stress is all around and the deadlines are mounting...to aid you in relaxing try the following herbs individually or in different combinations to find the ones that best suit you .

KAVA KAVA (PIPER METHYSTICUM):
Used by the natives of the South Pacific in their religious ceremonies, the Kava kava plant is known for its relaxation properties of both the mind and the body (especially the muscles).  Kava kava is especially good to promote relaxation during times of anxiety and helps to reduce fatigue. 
(Kava Kava can have a numbing affect on your tongue!)

VALERIAN ROOT:
Valerian root has been used widely in folk medicine as a sedative (calms you) and antihypertensive (helps to lower blood pressure).  A 128 patient study in 1982 revealed that valerian root significantly improves sleep quality.  Valerian is also known for its anti-spasmodic (stops spasms) properties.  Just to warn you, valerian stinks!!

HOPS (HUMULUS LUPULUS):
Hops have been used as a medicine for at least as long as for brewing.  The flowers are used for their sleep-inducing, sedative effect.  Research has also shown that hop extracts relax smooth muscle, especially that of the digestive tract and also appears to reduce nervous tension. The ability of the hops to relax and soothe is complemented by the antibacterial activity of components lupulone and humulone which reduce inflammation. 

PASSION FLOWER:
The genus Passiflora is indigenous to South America and is now widely cultivated in Europe for its sedative and anti-spasmodic properties.  Passiflora has long been used for its sedative action. It is still employed against sleeplessness and seems to also have a profound effect against neuralgia. 

ST. JOHN'S WORT (HYPERICUM PERFORATUM):
When you think of relieving depression, think of St. John's Wort.  It is licensed in Germany for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders.  (Do not take St. John's Wort if you are currently taking a pharmaceutical anti-depressant)

NOTE:  If herbs are strong enough to help you, they must be strong enough (taken improperly) to cause harm.  This is not meant to scare you, only to remind you to use herbs respectfully.  Side effects from herbs are generally few and far between, so use common sense and/or get a professional opinion when necessary.

Detoxification for Health and Healing
Is Toxicity Robbing You of Vibrant Health?

Two of the most important keys to health, wellness and longevity are proper exercise and decreasing the toxic load on our body.  Toxins come from the outside (air pollution, water pollution, insecticides, pesticides) and from within (the waste products of our metabolism).  We'll discuss the downside and dangers of toxic buildup and ways to enhance your body's ability to eliminate toxins more efficiently.

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
