The neti pot and see I’m not crazy
A veterinarian friend of mine, Suzanne, asked me the other day about nasal cleansing (the most popular being the Neti pot system — a ceramic pot that looks like a cross between a small teapot and a watering can). Although nasal douching (yup- that’s actually what it’s called) using the Neti pot has been around for centuries, its use is on the rise in the U.S., thanks to an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show and some news coverage and magazine articles. The Neti pot originally comes from the Ayurvedic/yoga medical tradition. That is how I first learned about it. Although nasal irrigation ( sounds better ) is recommended by ear, nose, and throat surgeons for their patients who’ve undergone sinus surgery to clear away crusting in the nasal passages, many people with sinus symptoms from bacterial infections, allergies, and environmental irritants also have begun to regularly use the Neti pot or other nasal irrigation devices for overall improved health.This system alleviates congestion, facial pain and pressure, and reduces the need for antibiotics and nasal sprays. Research backs up these claims, finding that nasal irrigation can be an effective way to relieve sinus symptoms. The basic explanation of how the Neti pot works is that it thins mucus to help flush it out of the nasal passages. Simply buy a nasal device ( health food store or drug store) almost fill it with warm water ( not hot) add pinch of non-iodized salt ( usually health food stores carry this- not drug stores) and….ok watch a utube neti pot demonstration 🙂 ps did i mention that you can put wheatgrass juice in the neti pot ?

Hi everyone! Even though I have a tab for wheatgrass benefits on my site I thought it prudent to blog some benefits today as a reminder. One Shot of Wheatgrass Juice
* One ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
* One ounce of wheatgrass juice represents as much nutritional value as approximately 2.5 pounds of fresh green vegetables.
* Wheatgrass juice is high in chlorophyll.
* It is very high in vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E and K.
* Wheatgrass juice is a natural source of laetrile (B-17).
* It contains beta-carotene, which is found in red, green and yellow pigmented fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene acts as a scavenger against harmful molecules flowing naturally through the body or through toxins inhaled from cigarette smoke, air pollution and other damaging sources.
* Wheatgrass cleanses, purifies and feeds the body by activating the white blood cells, which boost the body’s immune system.
* Wheatgrass juice is also beneficial for people who need to lose weight or cleanse their bodies.
….even though it was a Passover supper, absent from any account or depicting pictures of the “Last Supper” is meat!
Jesus believed in simple living and nonviolence, and felt that this was part of the law of God. Jesus was undoubtedly vegetarian, since this was the original teaching of Jewish Christianity. Jesus did not bring a new theology, but rather a radical understanding of the law. For Jesus, the law commands nonviolence; we are not to shed blood, whether the blood of humans in warfare or the blood of animals in meat consumption or animal sacrifice. Jesus risked and gave his life to disrupt the wicked and bloody animal sacrifices in the temple. But the religion of Jesus has been lost from modern Christianity. I do not believe that the Christ ate meat. There is NO mention of Him eating meat in any testaments. In fact He multiplied fishes but no mention of even a taste. Jesus’ spirituality and highest consciousness would be in contrast to meat eating. I personally do not believe it is a sin for someone else to eat meat but I believe it is a sin for me to…. And God said: ” Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.'”(Genesis 1: 28,29).Having decreed the kind of food that was to sustain life on earth, the bible does not discuss diet again until the ninth chapter of Genesis. And by then the known world had already been destroyed by the great Flood. The scripture juxtaposes the report of that catastrophe with the information that the world had been defiled by the human beings to whom stewardship of the earth had been given. “Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.”(Gen. 6:11)
A world that could no longer support the degeneracy of its inhabitants was washed away by the Flood. But the bible reports that there was a man who escaped the common fate. His name was Noah and the Lord said of him: “I have found you righteous in this generation.” (Genesis 7:1–Emphasis added) This is a very qualified endorsement of Noah’s character: he was the best that could be found in the midst of a depraved and violent society. And although there was to be a new beginning after the Flood, it was hardly a return to Paradise.
Just as life after the Fall in Eden was lived at a much lower level of existence, life after the Flood had deteriorated even further. The violence of the pre-Flood world reached the point where earth’s inhabitants had begun to feed on the flesh of each other. And Noah and his family, conditioned by that society, continued its carnivorism.
In some of the most chilling passages in the bible, the extent of human depravity is plainly stated. When its inhabitants first leave the Ark, they are told that the earth will not be washed away again even though “the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth.” This statement is followed by a summation of the state of affairs that now exists in the world. “The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea.” (Gen. 9:2)
All creatures will fear and dread mankind, because human beings will abuse them. Obviously, the God of creation is not commending humans for their violent and abusive behavior. The bible is simply stating that there was no miraculous imposition of a higher state of development on earth’s inhabitants. The imagination of man’s heart would continue to devise evil, and violence would remain a hallmark of life on earth.
This perversion of God’s intent would also be apparent in man’s continued carnivorism. “Every living thing shall be meat for you; even as the green herb, have I given you all things.” This verse of scripture is not an approval of carnivorism. It is a statement of fact: human beings will continue to consume the flesh of other creatures. But human chauvinism has prompted scholars to interpret this as God’s blessing on man-turned-carnivore. Even their translation of this scripture tries to obscure its meaning. I picked Einstein first. I should have started with Jesus the “Christ”
How will I ever fill all the wheatgrass orders?
Glenn Beck is drinking wheatgrass juice. Let me repeat that: Glenn Beck is drinking wheatgrass juice!!! He is a wise man. I was going to write about a famous vegetarian today but I can’t top the Glenn Beck drinking wheatgrass story so I will wait till tomorrow.
Who cares what anyone else does? Really? We all care at least a little. For those few who might not, then this won’t be as fun for them to read as it is for me to write. I am going to feature a famous vegetarian from time to time. I am usually not going to differentiate between vegan and veggie. Most of my readers are aware of the difference and can find out more about each person on their own. Today’s famous person is non other than Albert Einstein. He is an exception ( huh?) so I will just use a few of his quotes: “So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but am feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore.”
This was from a letter written to Hans Muehsam, and dated March 30, 1954, which was about 1 year before Einstein died. This indicates he adopted a vegetarian diet at the end of his life. Previously, on August3, 1953 Einstein had written the following in a letter to Max Kariel, suggesting that he was still eating meat at that time: “I have always eaten animal flesh with a somewhat guilty conscience.” I like this one: “Although I have been prevented by outward circumstances from observing a strictly vegetarian diet, I have long been an adherent to the cause in principle. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons, it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.” Translation of letter to Hermann Huth, December 27, 1930. Einstein Archive 46-756. I have read two thick books about the life of Einstein and the only thing I didn’t understand was E=mc2 🙂
