i just finished my annual panchakarma cleanse. Panchakarma means 'five cleansing actions.' it's a rejuvenating and healing process from the ayurvedic tradition of Inida, involving diet, herbs, purgatives, sweating, lymphatic-style massage, sinus cleansing, and more, administered over a time span of about a month. i've lost ten pounds or more, plus i've lost toxins galore. I feel great! Let me tell you, it isn't exactly easy to do, but with persistence it gets easier every time, and has helped me to make some necessary changes in my regulator diet and lifestyle. my practitioner has a fantastic line of products - without exaggeration the best herbal products I have ever used - Sarada's Ayurvedic Remedies. Here is her website.
Just before I began the cleanse, I had the flu, so it's been about a month of being caught up in the process of working with my physical health. I've been making daoist perfumes to handle the spiritual side of things. They are also very effective, not to mention extremely pleasant. I learned this technique from my daoist medicine teacher, Jeffrey Yuen, of the Jade Purity School.
Pica, Lori, Carrie, Peter, Dave, Yemi, Dick, Beth and other supporters of my site, if you think you'd like a personalized daoist perfume (for free of course) please email me.
