The Best Cleansing Diet - The Kabalarian Cleansing Diet
The Kabalarian Cleansing Diet is considered the best cleansing diet because it combines right eating, right breathing, and right thinking. The body, mind, and spirit are interconnected and balance between these three leads to good health.
Balance is created by understanding and eating the foods that build physical health, incorporating breathing exercises that strengthen one’s inner core, and gaining relaxation and peace of mind that comes from understanding the power of relaxation and what constitutes balanced thinking and living.
The Kabalarian Philosophy stresses and teaches how a balanced mind may be acquired with its attendant peace of mind, health, and happiness. Fear plays one of the greatest parts in the drama of health versus sickness. Remember that happy thoughts are healthy thoughts.
To understand the spiritual power that came with your first breath of life and to express those qualities can lead to joyful living and fulfilment. Constructive thought energies of happiness and contentment serve to strengthen the body and increase the potential for lifetime good health.
Right Eating - Organic Vegetables and Fruit
The high-speed pace of life often means that we do not take the time consistently to prepare nourishing meals. We rely upon fast or quick energy foods. In youth, we get away with eating improperly. Over time, however, these foods contribute to the failure of the body to maintain lifetime good health because they do not provide the essential nutrients.
The Kabalarian Cleansing Diet is composed mainly of vegetables and fruits.
In adopting the Kabalarian Cleansing Diet, it is important to look for organic
foods, to avoid genetically modified foods, and to ensure that a variety of
vegetables and fruits are incorporated into your new diet. Both booklets, written
by Alfred J. Parker, the founder of the Kabalarian Philosophy, The Right Way
to Health and The Kabalarian
Cleansing Diet are available and outline foods that will build
good health. After a few days of effort, you will begin to see a new you! Your
skin will take on a fresh glow, your eyes will sparkle, and you will feel greater
energy and buoyancy.
Breathing exercises are essential for a clear mind and a healthy body. Health and balance are maintained through different forms of breathing. Various breathing exercises lead to physical and mental development, but deep and rhythmic breathing is essential to personal growth in all areas. Breath is life, so live life to the fullest with closer contact with the life power contained in the breath.
Spend some time each day practicing deep rhythmic breathing.
• Sit upright in a comfortable chair and focus on relaxing your entire body. Put aside the day’s activities and focus on a nature scene, for example, or anything that does not disturb your emotions.
• Inhale the breath gently through your nose focusing on the breath going to the back of your throat and feel it filling the lower part of your lungs as it pushes the diaphragm outward and downward.
• Then fill the middle part of your lungs pushing out your lower ribs, breastbone, and chest.
• Then fill the upper portion of your lungs forcing your upper chest outward and lifting the whole chest while completely expanding your ribs.
• While you retain the breath, make sure the muscles at the base of your neck and shoulders are relaxed. Make your shoulders droop so that you do not create tension.
• Then gently exhale the breath.
• Try to inhale the breath to the count of six, hold for the count of three or six, and exhale to the count of six. Start with five minutes a day and increase the time as you are able to keep your mind and body relaxed.
This is only one of the many powerful breathing exercises taught in the Healthy Living course program that builds bodily strength and vitality and produces anti-aging effects. Breathing is the elixir of life. Without breath, there is no life. Greater use of the breath brings life-long energy and freedom from aches and pains.
Right Thinking - Relaxation
“Full throttle” and “extreme” are words we often hear today. Less and less time is given to the power of relaxation to create health in the body. Relaxation should not be confused with inactivity. Relaxation is a method of withdrawing consciously from the active states of existence. The demands of modern life are intense. Living to those demands is exhausting, weakening, and devitalizing. Relaxation, on the other hand, is invigorating, recharging, and vitalizing. After a day of physical hard work or mental concentration, it is important to withdraw, detach—to separate oneself from the work, and to relax.
Try this simple Relaxation Exercise:
• Sit on a chair with both feet flat on the floor or ground, hands on your knees, with head, neck, and spine straight. The fingers should be well apart.
• In this position, let yourself go; i.e., relax completely all over, without a single muscle in tension in the entire body.
• Keep the thought of peace in your mind; push away any other thoughts that will tend to disrupt your relaxation time.
• From five to fifteen minutes of this relaxation will bring unexpected results in the process of recharging a devitalized body.
• Do not fall asleep.
• If you can, practise relaxation two or three times a day. It will keep you from being unnecessarily irritable or angry.
The Relaxation Exercise is one of many techniques and approaches to good health
taught in the Healthy Living philosophical study program.
