Ayu -absence of symptoms of disease

Do you embrace the common perception that health is the
absence of symptoms of disease?

But then wonder about the times when you are not feeling
well, yet all the tests are normal?

A person is in good health when he or she is:

Has balanced bio-elemental energies. Vata,
Pitta, Kapha

Strong digestion and metabolism

Properly nourished and toxin free

Has timely formation and elimination of wastes
from body: urine, feces, sweat?

Good coordination between mind and senses, mind
and intellect and intellect and soul.

Happiness and contentment.


Earth: the state of solidity and stability

Water: the state of fluidity, moisture, and flow.

Fire the state of heat and transformation, that which
engulfs whatever it comes into contact with.

Air: the state of mobility and movement

Ether: the space or the field that contains the above four


Often people ask what is Ayurvedic food?

What food is most balancing for you, right now?

If its celery juice – it is astringent in taste, cooling and
calls for higher digestive strength.

If your pitta is hi, your agitated with acidic digestion, a
burning sensation. Then you need a shot of alkalizing fluid.


The golden rule of balance: 
Like increases like and opposite balance.


Semi-digested food is the root cause of inflammation.

Your digestive system grabs what is useful and sends it into
the body tissues and drives what is not useful our for elimination.  If your agni is low, undigested proteins, fat
molecules can be fully absorbed and linger in small intestine, irritating it
and causing allergies to heavy foods, such as those containing gluten, lectins,
or lactose.  The unused food then ends up
in the lymphatic system, which acts as a garbage disposal in the body.  Over time the lymphatic drains become
clogged.  The congested lymphatic system
can lead to accumulation of fatigue, belly fat, bloat, brain fog and more.
Ayurveda calls this semi-digested or unripe food residue AMA.  It is food we have eaten but has not
transformed to become a part of our body.

The more ama that accumulates and clogs the pathways in our
body, the weaker our agni becomes the more ama. Ama is heavy and sticky and
attaches to coronary arteries, digestive tract, lungs, sinuses, brain and thus
becomes the main cause of inflammation. This does not happen overnight; it is
years of eating unsuitable foods.

I am Not Healed

Written by Peggy Green The Grief Specialist

After Connor died in 2018, I knew I wanted to do something that matters. But how? How do I do that when I am
still hurting and grieving? I see others who work in grief, and they seem like they have it all together. I watch those who are well known and world renowned yet don’t see their pain and suffering. It seems that they don’t have the same
struggles that I do.

Peggy Green - Thee Grief Specialist
Written by Peggy Green Thee Grief Specialist

Are you afraid to talk about your loved one? You might think the pain is too great and every time you think of them, you get angry and upset. You avoid going to the grocery store for the fear of crying in public or are embarrassed to let others see you this way. You might give up on yourself with your basic needs such as food, sleep, water. You avoid taking care of yourself because you do not care about living or the others who depend on you.

Grief, Joy and Gratitude Can and Do Co-exist

Peggy Green - Thee Grief Specialist

Written by Peggy Green Thee Grief Specialist

August 9 is my first child’s birthday. She would have been 31 years old this year. I took her picture off the top of my desk where it was so carefully placed years ago. The frame is oval with gold and silver trim. As I looked at it, so many memories came flooding in. Her fuzzy blonde hair stood on end and her deep blue eyes stared back at me. I found myself studying her just like when she was a new-born.
