Yoga Poses and Workouts
Stretching consists of two elements flexibility and alignment. Both are developed and enhanced by yoga. When you combine raw foods with yoga, you tune into a phenomenal state of being. The Sunfood Diet radically improves your metabolism and the biochemistry of your body. Yoga reforms physiology by the consistent practice of different stretching poses. Yoga helps squeeze toxins out of the tissues, open up tensions, and improve the mechanical functioning of the body. Yoga is about letting go to increase flexibility. Yoga will get the spine straight beginning with opening up the hips and sacrum. Practice yoga stretching after sleeping, sitting, or walking. If you have chronic back pain, start looking into yoga and eating more green-leafy vegetables to get your body alkaline (also consider sleeping without a pillow to allow the spine to rest in its natural position).
Generally, these specialty classes focus on thorough warm-ups, cool-downs, aerobic workouts, and stretching. In some instances, they might also include strength training and yoga. All exercises are carefully choreographed to keep you energized, but in a comfortable and appropriate fashion. Furthermore, you won't feel self-conscious because everyone in the class is in the same boat give or take a few inches (or yards) around the waist. In other words, it's highly unlikely that the woman standing next to you will be wearing a thong leotard (and if she is, more power to her). It's also a nice place to bond, swap pregnancy war stories, and meet other women who are soon to have kids the same age as your own.
Chinese oriental medicine claims that some people do not have enough fire in their constitution to thrive on raw foods. Anyone, however, can increase their fire to help digest raw foods. The best way to increase the fire one's constitution is to Sunbathe. It is my experience that the more direct Sun energy the body receives, the greater is the digestive strength. Other ways to increase the fire in one's constitution is to practice vigorous exercise, deep breathing, and astanga yoga. In yoga we find the breath of fire, which entails inhaling passively, exhaling in bursts through the nose as you pull the lower bell in, drawing up from the perineum.
You can also try alternative remedies such as taking enteric-coated capsules of peppermint oil three times a day between meals (skip this one if you have heartburn), or explore yoga, meditation, or hypnosis to lessen stress and anxiety, which can sometimes wind up in your gut. Also, for women who notice IBS flare-ups around the time of menstruation, take evening primrose oil or black cohosh.
Antioxydants, vitamins and nutrients helped me bypass the bypass. Improved nutrition, as well as the daily practise of yoga, and Taoist physical exercizes reestablished my previous health. The progress and improvements observed as years passed by, and the new information available about human nutrition and longevity made me impatient.
Clean and light foods allow the blood to become clean and light, which in turn allows the lymph to become clean and light. Over a period of years (at least three) on The Sunfood Diet, as the body is purified, it will change from a solid, rigid, weakened condition to a comparatively elastic, fluid, and energetic state. Yoga, exercise, and massage speed up this process by stimulating the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid.
