Chia Seed Pudding

With 2 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber in each tablespoon, chia seeds will help keep you satiated for hours. Chia balances and stabilizes your blood sugar because it slows the effect at which glucose enters the bloodstream, making it ideal for diabetics and those wanting to prevent diabetes.

Chia will make any meal more joyous, in other words, “healthier”. 



Healthy recipes that will not cause the blood sugar spike

Rich in protein, minerals and fiber, chia seeds also contain 500% more calcium than milk and the same amount of omega-3s as wild salmon.

Omega-3 fatty acids will help reduce any muscle inflammation you may have after a tough workout.

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.


Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.



The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
