Frequently Asked Questions:
1) I have tried so many treatments, if I were to take this course would I feel different right away? Or would I need to practice these teachings for days or weeks to feel the benefit?
Unlike the disease centric approach of conventional medicine, these tools we offer here are health centric, designed to remove blockages in the proper flow of life force in our mind and body. However, ofcourse, please do not expect over night cures and we recommend that no change in your prescribed medicines should be done without the approval of a qualified medical doctor.
With that in mind, we have seen these teachings do start to yield benefits right away for many people. Studies have shown the reversibility in chronic health ailments to varying degrees and a reduction in the dependence of drugs through a continued, diligent practice of these principles shared. That’s why it is a journey over 5 weeks where you will be able to track your progress and we will be available to guide participants and help them move forward, answering questions that may arise at any point.
2) What is the best and most spiritual diet one can follow?
According to Yogananda, food should be viewed in terms of life force and energy. Life energy sustains us and is responsible for our well-being. Therefore our diet should include only foods that are easily converted into energy. Also, our thoughts, actions, and health are generally determined by the foods that we eat, so we need to choose foods that are rich in life force, calm our nervous system and help to uplift and expand our consciousness.
Foods that are refined, processed and preserved should be avoided because they have lost their life force. So, gradually eliminating from one’s diet overly processed foods and focusing more on foods that are naturally produced will help us feel more alive and well.
The diet that Yogananda recommended for the body includes: fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes, nuts, seeds, some dairy products, and spices. This is a diet that help us to live a balanced life, keep our worldly duties, and meditate deeply. Yogananda recommended for a person with good health a diet that includes: 60% fruits and vegetables, 20% protein, and 20% starches and simple carbohydrates. If you are interested, we go through this in much depth over the 5 weeks of this course and invite you to join us on the journey!
3) How does this course work? Are the videos pre-recorded or are there live sessions?
This course is open at certain times in the year, so once you register, you will begin the course on the designated date with others in your batch. The course is pre-recorded and you can watch it easily on your app or in your email. You will have access to new sections of the course per week (as mentioned in the outline) and you will also receive complementary reading materials and handouts, log-sheets to track your progress, as well as tips to practice and implement daily during the week. We will have live sessions with the Doctors, and you may send in your questions at any time if you have any. You will also be able to schedule an Online Consultation session with the doctors once you have completed a few weeks of the course.
“Keeping out of the hospital is not health. To be able to resist disease, to bear strain, to stimulate mental vitality, and to feel the body as a luxury– as a bird feels when shooting through the air, and as a child does always — is health.” Paramhansa Yogananda
