There are many fad diet ideas out there and I have heard about apple cider vinegar as a cure all. I chose to dig a bit and to see if I could find any scientific studies on the effects the fermented apples had on the body. I found the video above from Dr. Eric Berg DC. He goes into details of how ACV effects you.
Straight to the point: I have been drinking the vinegar every day for over a week now and I CAN feel a difference! The acid reflux is completely gone. I am not as bloated - can see the tightening all over my body and that nasty cold virus that has been passing around to everyone barely graced me with it's presence. This is just in one week!!!
As a fellow yogini, I care about my 'vehicle's' strength and vitality!
This is how I have drank it:
*In the morning on a completely empty stomach (the first day the taste didn't agree with me)
*I use 1 tsp in a large glass of water. I want to start slow. Dr. Berg recommends 1 Tablespoon.
*A few days ago I discovered squeezing fresh lemon into sparkling water makes the vinegar actually taste good! Like a yummy Kombucha drink! Maybe I'm dreaming, but it did help with the taste tremendously.
I'd like to thank Dr. Berg for the free and straight forward information he shares to the public. He has many videos on health topics. Please check his channel out on You tube.
If you try ACV, please leave a comment and let me know the results.
Knowing the asana's Sanskrit name is critical for the student to further their practice. Languages change over years. It's a natural progression. If we were to chat with an English speaker who lived 300 years ago, both of us would not understand each other though we are speaking the same language. Sanskrit however has not changed. The importance in Sanskrit not changing is in the meaning of the sounds a word makes. The form it creates. One asana can take a lifetime of study to possibly fully understand it. Take pascimottanasana for example. It's an 'eastern stretch' and in my own study of the pose and study of the injuries the pose has given; it's a back stretch, not the hamstrings. The meaning is in the Sanskrit. Tradition has us practice yoga facing the morning sun. The back in a forward bend is facing East. Think about it for yourself and leave your comments below.
Thank you 'Yoga Notes' for this really cute meme.
