Yuliya, thanks for being an invaluable mine of info relating to HCRV-accessibility at Dhamma Dara! You have alleviated all of my concerns and so I feel much more confident about going there. I suppose that I'd rather have oranges with miniscule amounts of DDT residue than eat cooked starches for a week. After all, both of those things are just external manifestations of my own fears anyways ;-) I'll totally check the audiobook out, thanks for the recommendation. Good luck with the water fast, I hope you reap great benefits. And I will certainly share my experiences once I complete a course there. -Peter
Thanks so much for the info. Sounds like it won't be too difficult. I'm on a waiting list for a course there in March but I may postpone till later spring because of work (for some reason, my priorities are backwards :D) Are you planning on bringing a couple cases of your own fruit; assuming that their fruit box will underestimate your tummy? I feel like the more of "us" who go to the centers, the more the various assistant teachers will be open to the natural human diet not as an ego maneuver but as yet another step on the path. Thanks again for getting back to me.
Yuliya! I see that you have been to the Vapassana center in Massachusetts (I read in the Vapassana group here). I am considering going there soon. I am rather concerned about your account of how you were treated in regards to your diet (receiving a lecture about arrogance and the ego, my gosh!). I am prepared to get a chiropractor to write me a note, but I was wondering if you remember the name of the assistant teacher - if the same person is there now, I will know to definitely get a doc's note and be more cautious in presenting my case. Thanks, -Peter
Is calcium bentonite clay diff from just "bentonite clay"?
Not sure about gums, but I hope you get it sorted. Teeth are such a difficult one, but yea chew greens, keep them clean, try SOLE and Bicarb and it should all clear up. I try to chew greens while gardening as much as possible.
Aloha Yuliya, thanks for your message ;) Well yea the teeth issue brought me here and since I started 811 I have not had issues. I did a few weeks back after I went out and ate some packets of chips and the salt I think really caused issues.. But otherwise they are feeling good, I rinse them very often, chew garden greens and herbs, gargle SOLE + Bicarb and don't eat sugary food anymore, especially chocolate in bed (cough cough, nawty me!).. I feel in time they will heal naturally as the rest of our body does when treated with love.
Hey Yuliya! Hope all is well with you. I remember you being very knowledgable on dental health, and I'm wondering about a couple of things. What do you think about the practice of rinsing your mouth with baking soda dissolved in water? What about brushing your teeth with baking soda? I hear conflicting reports on this. Lastly, what is your opinion on rinsing with a food grade hydrogen peroxide solution? I appreciate your knowledge and expertise. Hope youre not working too hard on this year's WFF :)
i am eating either oranges or grapes for breakfast, bananas for lunch, and celery and dates for supper followed by a leafy green salad with pineapple / tahini dressing or just pineapple squeezed on top of the salad. What out of those do you think is causing me the trouble?
Said project involves plenty of presenting and I'm hoping to gather like minded people over here in the UK to also help. A force of Raw Foodists to educate children! I'll keep you updated on the project as I should be networking via social media (via O2...that's how the corporation profits!)...So I would certainly love to be involved in whatever way with Woodstock. On another note, whereabouts in Brook do you live and have you ever been to Westchester? Or Yonkers? :)
