Health is Simple — Don’t Be Fooled!
A Yogic Perspective by Morris Krok
From Living Nutrition vol. 5
Just about everything written or propagated about health makes it into something mysterious and complicated. Orthodox medicine, homeopathy, dietetics, yoga, and all other therapies confuse us. The health food industry is in a way just as bad as medicine, as it deludes people into believing that substances in bottles or their packaged foods will work miracles. The body is crying out to be left in peace to carry out the backlog of elimination necessitated by all the imbibing of unnatural food and and other harmful substances.
The beauty and efficacy of the yoga system is based on simple principles, yet the books and magazines on this subject make it into something mysterious and complicated: You must get a guru, you must make a pilgrimage to distant lands, you must stretch in special sophisticated ways, etc. The real key is what you do behind the scenes, such as eating only natural foods and eating only when truly hungry after the internal membraneous structures have been properly cleaned.
Tony Officer in his book Why Grow Old? (out of print) touches upon the simple truth that is part of the yoga teachings, yet not found in any yogic text. Officer wrote that after eating, whatever remains in the digestive tract the next morning is toxic waste and is best washed out. He recommended drinking between six to twelve glasses of water the next morning.
