Headaches, menstrual cramps, stiffness of arteries and ligaments, brittle bones, cataracts, and many symptoms of aging can be prevented, alleviated, and even reversed with proper levels of this vital substance, which is written in Chinese by putting together the signs for mineral and beautiful.

Vaidya Mishra, was the heir of a millenia-old lineage of ayurvedic healers whose origins are recorded in the Puranas (ancient Sanskrit Vedic texts). They practiced the purest and most elevated form of ayurveda and had the highest understanding of the human physiology; an understanding that went beyond body organs and functions and holistically took into account the connection, communion, and harmonious balance of the physical body as the housing of the soul, put in motion by the flow of Prana and kept in harmony with the natural laws of the universe, as the true means of attaining HEALTH and BLISS.

#16 Here's Why Ayurveda Says We Should Cook Our Food
9:02Many people nowadays have lots of raw vegetables, cold salads and juice their vegetables for various reasons. Some state that the cooking process destroys the enzymes in the food, others say juicing is good because it breaks down the cellulose fibers in the vegetables for better absorption into the cells. Lots of people would rather toss together a quick salad rather than standing over a pot cooking the vegetables. Plus the raw salads look so green and healthy. This video debunks all these myths and shows what the knowledge of Ayurveda has to say about these misconceptions. Ayurveda is based on sound knowledge, cognized from enlightened seers whose knowledge which is passed down to us is known as “siddhantas,” or eternal truths. Learn why the cooking process prevents the formation of ama and shleshma (sticky substances that clog the body’s vast network of physical channels. And that while cooking may destroy some of the enzymes in the food, there is far more absorption into the cells than if the vegetable is raw. Not only that, there are lots of dangerous compounds in raw vegetables which will evaporate out once the vegetable is cooked. And finally, eating raw vegetables and juicing cold vegetable juice will throw your Vata out of balance over time, as raw vegetables contain all the attributes of data, which is cold, dry and light.

#15 How to Make Home-made Yogurt - The Miracle Food for Your Gut Health
13:38Yogurt is an excellent way to replenish your gut with its probiotic cultures. However, it is best to make your own from a good yogurt starter as described in this video. Even the healthier brands of yogurt found in the health food stores are somewhat lacking in their live strains of probiotics. So if you make your own yogurt you can replenish the strains every two months with the yogurt starter powder to insure the highest quality cultures. In addition, the ancient texts of Ayurveda stated that the yogurt needs to have an alkaline taste or else if it is too acidic the acids could kill off some of the friendly bacteria cultures in the yogurt. Yogurt could be very channel-clogging and create ama (heavy undigested food which remains undigested in the gut) if not taken in the correct way. This video describes various ways to take yogurt properly in order to prevent this clogging from occurring. Also explained is why yogurt is better than kefir, and which foods don’t combine well with yogurt. It’s important to have a thorough understanding about yogurt as it is one of the more important foods to help us retain robust health into old age, yet it has to be both prepared correctly and taken as described in the ancient texts or else this important food can just sit in the gut, rotting and fermenting if we aren’t aware of these issues.
