Mind Body Balance Class Final – Overview

Course description “An 8 week course to reboot for health” and “In this course, you will learn what it takes to achieve your best health, alongside other like-minded people on the same journey.”

This class came to us when we were working on fine tuning our “Third Eye” (Intuition) and looking for something that would help us attain a solution to a spiritual block we have been meditating on for weeks.  When we received the brochure from Erin it sure felt good and we jumped on the chance to take this course and we called the same day later in the day.  Our excitement grew when we were signed up for the class and given a starting date.  Even though we were excited about this class we have learned that when something new comes along we choose to go into it without any expectation, this way nothing is expected and if something surprises us then we can enjoy the revelation.  (A good tip from us to you)  As it turns out we were constantly surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed every moment.  After meeting all our “class mates” we enjoyed the energy they emitted to the entire room.  Being a Reiki Level II healer from the first day we wanted to heal everyone from the onset, so everyday we did a “energy send” which usually requires an acceptance from the “patient”, but we made a point of starting the “send” just before class to the entire room and continued to the daily end of class.  Our thought process was “The energy will go to all and be used where needed without any judgment on our part”.  The following description is a weekly overview, which we are working on the details for later posts.  There was just so much information that the weekly post will be lengthy enough and hopefully interesting because we will present it in “our words” and one of those words will not be “Try”.  (Ok Teach?).  Our intuition turned out to be spot on and the “energy blockage” was solved and we are now moving along at “break neck” speed.

Overview:

Week 1:  We started with an overview of what the next 8 weeks subjects by week will be.  Then we talked about stress and how life events create stress and affects the onset and course of many illnesses.  Stress on the immune system might dysfunction, hormones levels, nervous system and the effects of stress on our DNA.  Then we discussed Mind Body techniques to relieve stress mainly meditation.  The “present” moment in particular and the book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle was suggested reading.  (We agree)  (We of course would suggest that you the reader could also read through many of our posts and get to the same results.)  We discussed the benefits or meditation and then did a group meditation.

Week 2:  “The art of eating” We admit before this we knew nothing in detail about food.  Back in the day we were working there we many days of “Pizza, coffee, and junk food in general”, but now we have learned about organic foods however, nothing in particular.  We discussed nutrition, the digestive process, Protein, “Animal vs. Plant Protein”, Fat, Saturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat (Omega 9), Polyunsaturated (Omega-3), Cholesterol, Omega 6, Trans fats, Carbohydrates, Fiber, Micronutrients, and Phytonutrients.  (When we do the detailed week post, please bring a dictionary with you).

Week 3:  More about foods like Poultry, Fish, Caffeine, Sugar, artificial sweeteners (Very bad), Glycemic Index, Junk Food, Water, Oils, Cookware, Ayurvedic Dietary, and how to read the labels on food products and the trickery involved by the companies providing foods.

Week 4: This week the subject was Toxins that are basically everywhere and how toxins get in our body.  An awesome site for checking toxins in specific products is “EWG ORG Site”.  Toxins and the Effects of Endocrine Disruption, Mercury, Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, BPA (Bisphenol A), Dioxin, Atrazine, PCB, Phthalates, Plastics, Organophosphate Pesticides, Detoxification our Liver, Cell Phones, various forms of “detoxing”.

Week 5:  The subject was Vitamins, Herbs, and Natural Supplements.  Whole Foods vs. Nutrition Supplements, Vitamins, A, C, E, D, K, B, (WE knew two A & C and none with numbers added), Vitamin Deficiency, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B% (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pridoxine P5P), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate), B12 (Cyanocobalamine), details of B, C, D 1&3, E, and then moved on to Herbs.

Week 6:  Herbs (We though “herbs was a group of Herbert s) Aloe Vera, Black Cohosh, Ashwagandha, Boswellia (Frankincense), Calendula, Chamomile, Chasteberry, Chondrointin, Dandelion, Echinacea, Garlic, and many others.

Week 7 & 8:  Subject description “Integrative Medicine and Complementary Therapies”, East vs. West, Terminologies, Acupuncture, Meridians, Qi, Musculoskeletal Points (Ear), Reiki, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Vatta, Pitta, Kapha, and Aromatherapy with Essential Oils.  (CBD Oil was discussed)

At the end of the day everyone applauded our beyond awesome teacher Susan Payrovi M.D. and if any of you out there wish to take this class there is another class starting soon.  Please Call Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine at (650) 498-5566 if you choose.

For all our friends who know us you know that this entire post was copied from documents e received in class, because there is no way we could even come close to spelling some of these words and even now most of the correct spelling words are coming up with red lines under them.  There is so much to learn and the overall solution to healthy eating seems to be “Vegan”.  We admit that we are following up with this thought in our mind however our focus is simply eating healthy; the “vegan” might come along later.  When we do the weekly posts we will for sure go find a medical dictionary for spell checking because this page looks like some kind of foreign flag.  (CR + numbers – no email?)

Thanks to all my new friends and subscribers who take time of their day to read our posts.  God bless all of you many time over.

We have nothing to except a reminder that we once read in a book by Marianne Williamson that a miracle is “A change of thought” and we have to say this class was one miracle after another.
