Earth Therapy

Earth Therapy

       The second step and element of Pancha Bhoota is the Earth Element or the food aspect. The most important constituent of our body (73%) is water and rest is  solid matter or the Earth element. In this second step we will discuss the purification of the mind and body using the earth or food element.


 "Thou shalt not abuse Food!" (Annam na nindhyAth)

"Thou shalt not discard Food!" (Annam na pari-chaksheeta)

"Thou shalt grow Food in abundance!" (Annam bahu kurveeta)
                                                        Taittiriya Upanishad: "Brghuvalli

Food Abuse: The Primary Cause of all Disease

    A knife can be used either to kill a man or to cut fruits and feed the same man. Similarly, abuse of food can cause disease and non abuse can prevent disease. We grow food in amounts more than we need so we indulge in overeating thereby depleting  the Earth of its energy resources.

    Most of the diseases known to man are directly or indirectly caused by the food he eats. Health and disease are equally affected by food. Food taken in balanced amounts influences the health of the body. There is no good and bad food; all depends on the quantity and quality eaten at a given time. Food eaten moderately and nutritiously is healthy. Unbalanced and un-natural foods only cause diseases. Thus, you can eat to live a healthy life or to die unhealthy. You can thus use the sword to protect you or point against you. THERE LIES YOUR CHOICE!

        The human body is a bag of chemicals where millions of chemical reactions run the "great show". The nature of the reactions and the outcome is dependant on the materials that flow into the human bag. Thus food decides the functioning of the human body.

Castor Oil Cleansing

Method
For adults and children above 12: Pour 50 ml to 75 ml ( 2 ounces) of castor oil in a cup and add equal amount of freshly squeezed orange juice (or any citrus fruit juice like freshly squuzed orange or lemon) to it and mix well. You can also drink without addition of juice. Juice is only for a flavor. You can add if needed triphala half teaspoon to hide the oil taste (optional).

Babies after a wekk of birth can be given one drop a month, two drops in second month and so on till age three. 

Children from 3 to 6 years old - 20 ml oil

6 to 12 years 30 ml

Another way is to drink the oil first and immediately the juice to remove the oil taste from the mouth.

Drink on an empty stomach at around 6-7a.m.  After 15 - 30 minutes, start drinking hot water (like you would sip tea). Drink approximately 3-4 cups at intervals of 10 - 15 minutes. Dont drink too much water at a time because you may feel vomitting sensation. You can use ginger flavored water instead of plain water. You may sip ginger candy incase you feel too much nauseating.

After you drink hot water, you will have flush bowel movements. When you have had 6 to 8 flushes, stop drinking warm water.  Best is to watch out if you feel  oily yellow water in toilet. If oil stays back in your intestine you might feel discomfort. so drink hot water for good flush.   The bowel movements can be stopped by drinking a glass of buttermilk or fat free yogurt.  Try to use home made yogurt and buttermilk, because you are now going to introuduce new bacteria (lacto-bacillus) which will change the whole functioning of the body.

For the rest of the day try to eat very light food and avoid fatty , fried and spicy foods.

Why cold pressed Castor oil not good?

If Sesame oil, Coconut oil, Peanut oil are machine pressed, the heat produced by machine will destroy many vitamins in the oil. Therefore it is healthy to use cold pressed oils. Whereas Castor oil should not be done so because it has a deadly poisonous chemical called ricin.

The traditional ingenious Indian method meticulously removes this water soluble toxin away from the castor oil. Castor oil seeds are fried briefly and then pounded in stone mortar. Copious amount of water or tender coconut water is added and boiled. The oil is then carefully decanted and extremely beneficial for health.

This healthy traditional pressed castor oil is absorbed into absorbed to the lymphatic system and boost immunity by increasing lymphocytes. It also helps the lymphatic system to remove toxins from our body and makes our body healthy along with strong immunity.

Since ricin is only water soluble, this is safe for babies and adults. The castor oil sold in market are machine cold pressed and is very cheap with most of the medicinal compounds lost. Those castor oils are not intended for internal use but clearly stated as for external use only. The Nalam Castor oil which is prepared through traditional method is very good for the health and has many added advantage of using it with ease. The regular castor oil is very bad in taste and gives an unpleasant burp after ingestion and usually takes 4 to 5 hrs to do full cleansing. Whereas by using Nalam Castor oil, the cleansing can be done within 1 to 2 hrs and hardly any unpleasant burps. The Nalam Castor oil is hot boiled hand pressed oil and gives the highest benefit to your health. see www.shopawareness.com

How to avoid nauseating feeling?  Keep sipping ginger candies to avoid nausea. Try not to vomit the oil. Sipping hot water and also ginger candy helps to prevent vomiting.

How often to do?
Do this once in two weeks for three months and then once a month or once in two months. This can be easily done on the weekend.

After the Cleanse

Drink one glass of home made butter-milk (A2 milk yogurt the best) because you are going to bring the best gut-bacteria in your system.  If hungry mix rice with buttermilk and eat. Eat very light food; not fatty, fried items. Fruit juices are fine or steamed vegetables are good. If you feel too hungry, just plain rice with some beans without any fat is good.

Try to avoid junk fooods and processed foods to avoid bad-bacterial population in your gut. The bad bacteria will repopulate but you try to delay by eating yogurt/buttermilk with regular red-rice or fermented-red rice for 5 to 10 days with steamed vegetables spiced with black-pepper  and rock-salt. 

 

 

Other options- Traditional Indian food is khichari. This is  mung dal and rice cooked together, with minimum spices. Recipe for Khichari is given at the end of the page Do not eat nuts that day but fruits could be eaten. But the best is to eat yogurt rice or rasam rice.

Who is this cleanse for?
For children above the age of four it is safe but use less amount of castor oil (one teaspoonful to one tablespoonful depending on age). Care should be taken not to dehydrate them. So stop after they have had one or two bowel flushing.

Avoid
Pregnant women. However, before planning for pregnancy doing this is excellent. This keeps the body healthy for the baby. Do not do this cleanse on the day if you are suffering from fever or have diarrhea or dysentery.  Please note: people with liver problems or poor liver functions should  do cleanse only after few weeks of toning the liver.

Modern Research & Diseases

     We do not deny that modern science has given us the benefits of antibiotics and other discoveries. But at  the level of knowledge about food it has seriously failed because of its unholistic view. We will explain with the following example showing  how traditional practices  had wisdom (holistic view) with regard to food.

       Understanding the modern and traditional approach in the case of iron would suffice to clearly see how modern food habits cause diseases. Scientists do not see the whole picture or holistic view. Scientists found that phytates bind iron and this  causes less iron to be available in the food to be absorbed by the intestines. So, during the last century, they recommended that whole grains are bad for health and we should use refined products. The people, after suffering from constipation and diabetes, are slowly understanding that whole grains are indeed healthy and prevent these diseases. Now in the turn of this century scientists discover that  use of whole grains and beans can only decrease incidence of diseases. So, now, food scientists have created a new food pyramid  giving high importance to whole foods.

       There is still the great blunder of prescribing and supporting supplements. Earlier, when scientists found that whole grains and beans contain phytates which bind to iron and prevent iron from being absorbed by the intestines, they not only recommended the use of processed or refined foods, they also added iron supplements in foods and called them enriched foods. The blunder of  recommending refined foods is at least getting corrected by increasing the awareness about whole grains. But the very serious mistake of iron fortification still continues with the declaration that developed countries do not have incidence of anemia. But the sad fact is that the fortified iron causes serious oxidative reactions in the body causing oxidative stress, the number one killer of genes, or genetic information. Oxidative stress causes mutations resulting in diseases and hereditary diseases.

      More serious than this, vitamin C is also fortified with iron. This is a double killer because vitamin C oxidizes iron faster than anything else and doubles the oxidative damage to the body. This is the predominant cause for most diseases. The people do not have a clue regarding this poisonous nature of supplementation. After a heavy toll on health, we hope modern research will open its eyes to this blunder of supplementation.

     Popping vitamin and food supplementing pills may cause some known benefits, but no one knows the unknown damages it could cause.
