“The foods we take should be fresh and less processed. The processing of food is well known to devitalize the food (destroying natural enzymes) and deplete important vitamins, minerals and trace nutrients (trace minerals, fiber, co-enzymes and much more). In recognition of this, the food industry sometimes replaces a token amount of the lost vitamins by adding synthetic versions.
“It is interesting to note the makeup of feces, as its color, consistency and smell are of considerable importance to Ayurvedic practitioners. Fecal material is made up primarily of water, bacteria and roughage. Its color is naturally light brown and is determined primarily by the presence of bilirubin derivatives. Bilirubin is a breakdown product of bile. Excess bile production turns stools a greater green or yellow color. The presence of mucous causes stools to appear more pale or white.
“Eat Less.” Two simple words, and yet to follow them is among the most difficult tasks many people face. Self-control is a great challenge but if a person can be successful here, studies show that life can and will be extended. On the average, people consume 30% more food than they need. That adds up to a lot of extra pounds. Ayurvedic and yogic food guidelines have promoted for thousands of years the idea that a person should only eat till they are 75% full.

Do you feel a calling, deep down in your heart?
You probably wouldn’t be reading this unless you have a yearning in your heart to make a difference in the world. This means either the world within your own heart, or the greater world around you. Either way, you likely see things differently. The ancients called such people rishis, seers.
