Yoga for weight loss, digestive support and a tighter core with Wind Removing Pose (Pavanamuktasana)

In addition to understanding the factual truths about human dietary nutrition so that we can eat the right foods for weight loss, we can also practice certain yoga poses that will help us to naturally lose weight.  One of the easiest, most soothing yoga poses for weight loss is Pavanamuktasana, aka Wind Removing Pose, which massages the ascending, descending and transverse colon and allows us to eliminate any excess gas from within our digestive system.  With the elimination of excess gas, wind removing pose helps us to in turn naturally absorb more nutrients from the food that we eat while improving the functions of our liver, kidney, spleen and pancreas.

Siddhartha: Review and Insights

A quick, easy and entertaining (and quite enlightening) read, Siddhartha immediately caught my eye as I saw the cover at a local bookstore in old town Chiang Mai a few years back.  After reading over the description that was provided on the back cover, I knew that this was the book that I would buy on that particular visit.  Herman Hesse, the author of Siddhartha, writes in such a unique way as he describes the tale of Siddhartha growing from young adult to wise old man.  It amazes me how many of my personal friends and other people that I randomly meet who have read this book (and love it, too).  Perhaps the best thing to note about this masterpiece of a book is that it can be read and re-read and re-read and then re-read some more as the messaging behind the words becomes more insightful and relevant with each re-read. Another book to buy and add to your reading bookshelf.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about fat

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about fat

Shining the light on body FAT and it's admirably essential role in our everyday well-being

Taking a blurb from my weight loss eBook (about me losing 20lbs of weight in one week), I highlight body fat, something that a majority of us have been conditioned to not think too fondly of.

Fat is an essential bodily tissue. Fat is found in the limbs and torso regions of the body, just between the skin and the bones. Fat, in its healthy form, makes for healthy bones. Fat functions to provide lubrication for the body, supporting, protecting and preserving our bones. Fat acts as an internal air conditioning and heating system for our bodies, producing sweat as a byproduct to cool us down when our bodies get too hot and expanding to its full capacity to insulate and keep us warm when our bodies get too cold. Fat is a symbol of love and warmth and, without fat, our bodies feel forever cold (and our minds are simultaneously flooded with cold thoughts, cold emotions and cold feelings). Fat is literally necessary for our vitality and fat deserves our utmost love and appreciation for its active support and functionality in our overall health and well-being.
