Pranayama

The ancient Indian holistic practice of controlling the breath by a number of different techniques to increase the vital energy within the body. The regular practice of breath exercises can influence our physical, mental, and emotional state, in the most positive of ways, to initiate the body’s natural healing capacity.

Chakra Breath Exercise

The chakra breath exercise encourages harmony throughout the body by empowering the seven main energy centres, each of which is associated with specific endocrine or exocrine glands. Chakras radiate and receive energy and when in balance they enable the smooth flow of energy throughout the entire being to encourage optimum physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

To begin:

To practice the chakra breath exercise, sit comfortably and close your eyes.
Bring your awareness to your seven chakras, located in the subtle body.
Exhale deeply emptying your lungs completely.

The root chakra:

Inhale deeply and visualize your in breath entering your root chakra, located at the base of your spine.
Retain your in breath for a few seconds and visualize your in breath cleansing and balancing your root chakra.
Exhale deeply and visualize the negative energy from your root chakra being released through the soles of your feet.
Repeat two times.

The sacral chakra:
Next, inhale deeply and visualize your in breath entering your sacral chakra, located in your lower abdomen.
Retain your in breath for a few seconds and visualize your in breath cleansing and balancing your sacral chakra.
Exhale deeply and visualize the negative energy from your sacral chakra being released through the soles of your feet.
Repeat two times.

The solar plexus chakra:

Next, inhale deeply and visualize your in breath entering your solar plexus chakra, located in your upper abdomen and repeat as above.

Continue with your heart chakra located at the centre of your chest.
Throat chakra located at the centre of your throat.
Brow chakra located at the centre of your forehead.
Crown chakra located at the top of your head.

Practice two times a day.

Crystal Therapy

The holistic practice of placing the earth’s natural stones within the body’s magnetic field, to restore the flow of healthy positive energy within and around the body, by removing the toxic negative energy. The earth is crystalline as it is composed of minerals, and our bodies are crystalline in essence; therefore our energies resonate harmoniously with the vibration of crystals.

The following crystals can be placed on your table at mealtimes and under your pillow at bedtime, to assist in treating obesity and weight gain:

Citrine to cleanse the physical, mental and emotional body.
Amethyst to release addictive habits and unhealthy cravings.
Sunstone to suppress the appetite and alleviate stress and anxiety.
Moonstone to balance the digestive system and calm the nervous system.
Rose Quartz to encourage unconditional self-love and detoxify the emotional body.
Yellow Apatite to release deep-rooted emotional anger from the solar plexus chakra.

Yoga Asana Therapy

The ancient Indian holistic practice of physical postures known as asanas, each of which has specific physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits to unite the body, mind, and soul. It is believed that as our physical body becomes relaxed, flexible and open, this promotes a similar effect on our mental and emotional body.
The following postures empower the glands to treat the root cause of obesity:

Chromo Therapy

The ancient Indian holistic practice of applying specific colours to parts of the body, by various methods to heal energy imbalances. Sunlight is comprised of seven visible colours, each of which possesses its own unique energy vibration and carries its own healing property.

Colour can be absorbed by our body through our chakras, by sunlight, artificial light, the earths natural stones, water or visualization, to restore harmony by correcting physical, mental, and emotional energy imbalances.

Yellow is the colour recommended to treat obesity.

The ancient Indian method of absorbing the colour yellow for obesity is to fill a yellow coloured, sterile glass bottle with filtered water and cover the top.

Place the bottle outdoors, on a piece of wood, away from strong colours, in the sunlight for up to eight hours. Drink one glass, three times a day. Do not refrigerate. Continue this practice for six weeks. If a yellow coloured bottle is not available, double wrap yellow cellophane paper around a clear bottle.

Chromo Therapy Healing Visualizations

The ancient Indian holistic practice of using colour to create positive images of healing within the mental body, which allows the emotional body to respond, by becoming receptive to healing, which subsequently initiates the healing process in the physical body. Each colour has its individual vibration and carries its own healing properties.

The following visualization can be memorized, recorded or recited by a partner and practiced morning and evening.

To practice, lie down comfortably and close your eyes and visualize the colour yellow.
See the colour yellow as warm rays of yellow sunshine.
Sense the healing vibration within the warm yellow rays of nature’s sun.
Allow the yellow healing vibration to encompass your entire being.
Feel the yellow healing vibration resonating with your body, your mind and your emotions.

You feel warm, calm and relaxed.
Visualize your body being nourished by the yellow healing vibration.
Visualize your mind being comforted by the yellow healing vibration.
Visualize your emotions being embraced by the yellow healing vibration.
Bring your awareness to your heart.
Release any resistance and trust in your body’s innate capacity to self-heal.
Visualize each and every cell within your heart being illuminated by the yellow healing vibration.
Allow the yellow healing vibration to instil feelings of self-love and self-approval within your heart.
Release any further resistance.
Visualize your heart transporting the self-love and self-approval throughout your entire being.
You feel confident and empowered.
Allow the physical, mental and emotional imbalances to be uprooted and released.
Visualize yourself emerging as a bright, beautiful and vibrant being.
Open your eyes gently and repeat aloud, ‘Deep within my core I am safe, secure and at peace and this reflects in my life’.

Re-connecting with the ancient Indian wisdom of self-healing practices, we can learn how to care for ourselves from within, holistically, to treat the root cause of obesity and excess weight gain, by empowering our energies and releasing the imbalances to instill physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Traditional Indian holistic therapies recognize that the symptoms of our dis-eases are merely the body’s innate method of correcting the imbalances within, to allow us to return to our natural state of wholeness.

These imbalances originate in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies; therefore, treating only the symptoms of our dis-eases does not address the root cause.

Applying traditional Indian holistic therapies enables us to cleanse, balance, and empower our energies – and in her book, Diagnose, Treat, and Cure All Dis-ease with Traditional Indian Holistic Therapies, Vera Kaur shares these therapies with everybody, allowing people to create a smooth, harmonious flow of energy in the body, and instill physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
