The human body is a latticework of energies vibrating at different frequencies, which encompass physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. It has been perfectly created to provide optimal function as long as we observe the laws of nature. When we divert from these laws through breathing polluted air, eating food far from its natural state, drinking chemical-laden water, ingesting toxic medications, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, usinginorganic body care and household products, being exposed to electro-magnetic pollution, and even thinking negative thoughts, imbalances result within our energies, leading to dis-ease.

  How To Heal Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Naturally   How To Heal Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Naturally

Kundalini yoga meditation shows promising effects for those suffering with PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has spread in plague proportions throughout many countries, especially those in the war-torn Middle East. However, in the U.S., we mostly only hear about PTSD since the VA Hospital system has been overloaded for nearly a decade and is failing to effectively treat the vast majority of military veterans who have returned from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. The U.S. mainstream news is not covering the millions suffering from PTSD in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Gaza, the West Bank, Yemen, and Libya, where war and terror are a daily, if not at least a constant threat.

Namasteak: The Food/Yoga Connection

Most view food as the most important factor in getting or staying healthy. Of late, even the less nutritionally enlightened have begun to understand the importance of eating a clean, minimally processed, plant-emphatic diet.
