Re-Connect with Ancient Indian Holistic Wisdom to Treat the Root Cause of Obesity and Weight Gain (1)


Everything in the universe is composed of energy including the human body. Traditionally, when we lived in harmony with nature our body’s energies vibrated in resonance with the universal energies, we experienced optimum physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Today, as we strive to meet the demands of our fast paced lifestyles, we have unknowingly become detached from nature through breathing polluted air, eating unnatural food, drinking chemical-laden water, ingesting toxic medication, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, using inorganic body and household products, absorbing electro-magnetic pollution and being exposed to continuous stress. This has resulted in our energies becoming congested and imbalanced, which is the foundation for dis-ease.

Traditional energy healers had a wealth of knowledge on how to diagnose and treat the root cause of dis-ease by natural, holistic methods, and through the generations a great deal of this ancient wisdom has been kept alive. Traditional Indian energy healers believe that the root cause of obesity and excess weight gain stems from energy imbalances within our thyroid and reproductive glands.

The thyroid and reproductive glands are part of the endocrine system. The endocrine glands have a profound effect on our entire being as they regulate the functions of our systems, organs, tissues and cells by secreting the numerous vital hormones essential for our physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Our endocrine and exocrine glands act as buffers to absorb the negative impact of emotional, mental and physical stress, including toxic chemicals from our diet and environment. If our glands are exposed to excessive amounts of negative stress, energy imbalances result, and our glands become impaired, leading to dis-ease. The glands are inter-related; therefore if one gland becomes imbalanced, the health of the remaining glands are affected.

To empower the endocrine and exocrine glands, and treat the root cause of obesity and weight gain, follow these ancient practices:

Plant-Based Diet

Traditionally, a plant-based wholefood diet was well known to nourish and balance the endocrine and exocrine glands. Nature’s food absorbs an abundance of life-giving solar energy from the sun, which makes it positively and negatively balanced, to nourish each and every cell within our physical, mental and emotional body in a form that it recognizes, to reduce unhealthy cravings and compulsive over-eating.

Include the following to empower digestion and generate weight loss:
– Black Pepper and Turmeric Root assist in weight loss by preventing the accumulation of fat deposits within the body.
– Cinnamon and Ginger Root assist in balancing blood sugar levels, to suppress the appetite and reduce food cravings.
– Raw Garlic and Onions are abundant with digestive enzymes to increase the digestive power to encourage weight loss.
– Bitter Gourd assists in regulating blood sugar levels, purifying the blood and stimulating the liver to improve fat metabolism.
– Fenugreek Seeds cleanse the detoxifying organs and are rich in fiber which creates a feeling of fullness to reduce food intake.
– Sprouted nuts, seeds and legumes are highly alkaline and detoxifying to assist in balancing the endocrine and exocrine glands.

Acupressure Therapy

The ancient Indian holistic practice of diagnosing and treating the root cause of dis-ease, thereby curing dis-ease by applying intermittent pressure on specific areas of the body, that correspond to specific organs, glands, nerves, tissues and so forth. This regulates the vital energy within the body part, empowering it to function optimally.

Apply the following energy balancing treatments to empower the endocrine and exocrine glands and alleviate stress and anxiety, to treat the root cause of weight gain and obesity:

Barefoot Walking

The ancient Indian holistic practice of walking on the natural earth, barefoot. Within the earth there lies a powerful and unique energy source which we can draw upon. The earth is composed of minerals and the body is mineral in essence, therefore our body’s energies resonate perfectly with the energy of the earth. The earth’s energy is greater than that of the body, and this enables it to be absorbed naturally through the soles of our feet.

Practice walking barefoot on the bare earth, grass or sand for thirty minutes in the morning as the sun rises and thirty minutes in the evening as the sun sets. This traditional practice enables the body to discharge the accumulation of harmful free radicals and electromagnetic pollution, absorb a concentrated source of anti-oxidants and balance natural energy rhythms to re-charge the endocrine and exocrine glands.
