  1. There's one more thing you may consider if changing diet doesn't help but you'd need to be very open-minded to this. Eastern Medicine. It has been around for 4,000 years and unlike our western medicine, they do not treat symptoms but root causes. Quite often various symptoms are results of energy blockages, imbalances , lacking circulation, toxicity of particular organ etc.. I'm just throwing this out there for you. Have a walk around local China Town and see if there is a herbalist, acupuncturist, or eastern healer and just have a chat with them. Many of them are just nasty salesmen but there are some who have been trained by Oriental masters or who had the knowledge passed down through generations. Implementing activities such as Thai-Chi, Yoga, Diaphragm breathing could potentially help to resolve any blockages. Again, this is an alternative for you if you feel like you are stuck.
  2. Milk is most likely your number 1 symptom. have a look at these studies. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4507494/ "Acne patients should control their total calorie uptake and restrict sugar and refined carbohydrates, milk, whey, and casein protein supplements, saturated fats, and trans-fats. Acne patients should avoid pasteurized fresh milk intake that transfers bioactive microRNA-21, a most critical microRNA that downregulates FoxO1 and promotes inflammation. Beneficial and acne-preventive nutrients should contain plant-derived natural mTORC1 inhibitors such as green tea (EGCG), resveratrol, curcumin, genistein, and silymarin" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3470941/ "In conclusion, dietary factors particularly high glycemic load diets as well as higher frequency of milk and ice cream intake were positively associated with acne vulgaris development. Findings from this study further support the hypothesis that dietary factors play a fundamental role in acne vulgaris occurrences" A pasteurised milk is not a food for human beings. it has been stripped of all enzymes during the pasteurisation and our bodies have to put an incredible effort to digest it by creating own enzymes in pancreas. Not to mention that in your stomach, milk solidifies and forms a white layer around all the food that has already been in the process of digestion, making it very difficult for the chloric acid to do its work. Milk should be avoided at all cost unless it is fresh,not pasteurised, from a cow, , that has been naturally impregnated by a young bull and not fed faeces, dead chicken and remains of other cows, hormones and antibiotics. A pasteurised milk is responsible for everything from acne to rectal cancer to digestive diseases.
  3. Has anyone from UK been on one of those around the country? There are literally hundreds of them advertised on google. Any good or bad experiences? Any particular companies or websites you would recommend? TA!
  4. Finished it and got a lot of insight. Beware however, the course does not tell you: "this is your LP and this is what you do, here is a 10 step manual" It helps you to uncover this stuff yourself from within and at the same time gives you very practical advice on how you can go ahead and start transitioning. Deep inside all of us know these things, we just don't know how to access them. Having said that, I uncovered my passion that I always perceived only as a side interest before. I've signed up with a 3 year, weekend university to change my mayor and learn new information while keeping with regular 9-5 to make living. On evenings and early mornings, I work on starting a blog or studying different materials, which is just me testing waters and seeing what could work. Moving slowly but it gives me tremendous amount of satisfaction to know that finally my life started to head in meaningful direction. And if it has to take another 10 years to earn my first dollar while doing what I live, than so be it!! I'd rather do that than spend the rest of my life doing corporate career. My advice to you is definitely do it and finish all exercises. Especially values and strengths, those will be your guiding beacons when all other "lights fade." Follow your heart and intuition instead of your rational mind and keep extreeeeeemely open-minded. good luck !
  5. Following the herd will lead you down the cliff which is exactly where the herd is heading. You don't do personal development to become better than other people, you do it to become the best version of yourself. To become a reflection of what human being should think, act and live like, to get in touch with our long forgotten true humanity. There is not other way to become truly happy and fulfilled. The herd is chasing fame, approval, success, material possessions and pleasure. If you've ever experienced overindulgence of any of those, you'll know that it only makes you feel more miserable. Transcend your selfish motives and become great to contribute to humanity and to help people even if they don't accept your help right now. And in the process you may motivate many of them to follow you on this journey. You will be alone a lot and you will be despised, they will chase you and they will want to destroy you, but that's ok. You wish them well and send them your best regards while following your own agenda. your life is your life don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. be on the watch. there are ways out. there is light somewhere. it may not be much light but it beats the darkness. be on the watch. the gods will offer you chances. know them. take them. you can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. and the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. your life is your life. know it while you have it. you are marvelous the gods wait to delight - Charles Bukowski
  6. @brovakhiin it most definitely would. I was wheezing in my sleep like a duck. But never took the inhaler. Once you go down that road, its hard to come back. These things completely burn out your adrenals. Removing dairy and coffee did it. But it could also be small things like air pollution, dust mites, mold, stress and lack of purpose. Maybe your father has just learned to live with the respiratory condition and has accepted it as his reality. Many people learn to live with a disease that way. @SFRL I come from Europe as well, the Eastern part where it is exactly the same. I think the quality of dairy products we have are a bit superior to what US have. The market is not as massive and people don't generally over-indulge themselves and the animals have a lot of opportunities to feed on actual grass. Also the farming and planting is more ecological and sustainable based on what I'm seeing. That being said, some people can spend lifetime eating anything they want and never develop a disease. There are other aspects to consider. But often it can come out unexpected, having built itself over decades and once it strikes, it wreaks havoc and ruins the person. I'd rather not take the risk. And it is generally good for the well being of the planet to avoid animal products regardless of how sustainably they are produced.
  7. You said it yourself. Work your 9-5 to make living and in your spare time develop your skills. That's how most of us do, the transition could honestly take few years. It helps to create a good morning routine so that by the time you are off to work, you would have already spend 1 hour or more, working on your skills. I have learned that in my life the reason for lack of energy was that I had many unhealthy habits like late night TV and PC games and my nutrition was really poor based only on cooked and processed food. Turn this around and you will have a lot of energy even after work. There are no excuses, only solutions that are more or less obvious. Reading Steven Covey's 7 habits could definitely give you some ideas on how to optimise your routine and how to focus on what is really important. Cheers !
  8. Please don't take this the wrong way but if a house chore gives you this much anxiety, you better start working on your emotional development or this kind of victim behaviour will seriously f**k you up in couple years. Your parents restricting you is not an excuse. Everybody has things they need to do and most of it is not pleasant yet we do it regardless. Life is not all shiny object and pleasure and the earlier you wake to that reality the better. In this case, I'm not sure if Tao can help you. Start doing daily meditation and taking responsibility for your own feelings and actions. Do not give in to your negative emotions, learn to recognise them. The Emotional Intelligence might be something of an interest to you to get you on the proper path of personal development and self actualisation.
  9. There are several thinks you may try that Chinese Taoists have been practising for millennia. Acupuncture. Visit your local Chinese area and look around if there is something Also, try signing up for Yoga class. Not the modern fitness shit Yoga but genuine oriental Yoga. Kundalini for example is gaining a lot of popularity. Fasting to give your body and organs an opportunity to rest by stopping digestion and focusing on recovery. Combined with colonic cleaninsing if you can. Get in touch with nature. Go hike into a national park or just spend some time in a forest by your own. Look into proper diaphragm breathing with focus on various body parts. Clean your nutrition of all pastry, processed food and add more vegetarian meals. Meditation would definitely help you with focus on releasing tension from individual parts Finally, look into the source of your stress. What is it? Being stiff, means you hold in a lot of tension. Something's gotta be causing it. Do you have a stressful job/ Quit it then before your health starts to diminish. If there was one book, I'd recommend to you it is: Tao of health, sex and longevity.
  10. A fresh Milk from a farm raised Cow, fed on grass, that has been naturally impregnated by the young Bull is actually very healthy and beneficial. Unfortunately, in most US countries, it is forbidden and even in Europe it is nearly impossible to obtain. What we drink is pasteurised shit of artificially impregnated, malnourished, poor creatures that has been made pregnant 10 times a year. Pasteurised dairy is nothing but problems for humans. We are lactose intolerant by nature, of course everybody gets acne. A natural Milk contains enzymes that body utilises to digest the Lactose. In a pasteurised milk, those enzymes are gone. Ourpancreas has to create its own enzymes that are nowhere near as effective and that comes at a big cost. Everybody says "not me". Well you just wait 20 years down the road... For the love of your health and this planet, stop eating and drinking all dairy products and you will see a miraculous transformation of health. For me, dairy was a cause of Asthma some time ago and taking it away cured it forever. That being said, Coconut and Almond Milk are good replacement. So is Soy Milk, chestnut Milk, Hazelnut Milk. There are so many choices nowadays. By the way, the cause of your problems may as well be pastry. Removing that would definitely help in removing your acne. For some alternative treatment try to do a 24 hour fasting one day a week combined with collonic cleansing.
  11. You may just be catching an illness of some sort. Measure your temperature, notice how you feel. Have some extra sleep. Alternatively, "reset" your digestive system by 30 hour fasting and see what that does to you
  12. @SimonH you are asking questions that need to be replied by you only. Realise that everybody is wired differently. Start a journaling habit and put your thoughts on a piece of paper. Alternatively, work with Life Coach. He/she may help you find the answer you are looking for not by giving it to you but by guiding you so that you find it yourself. Good luck!
  13. no, it will still hurt like hell.
  14. @Annie There are certain hormonal changes that appear at different ages for females, usually this would be after 45. I don't know if that would be your case. However I would recommend you to look into an e-book section from Markus Rothkranz. He has a lot of content on youtube as well. All of them are paid, but not very expensive. Some time ago I was developing Symptoms of Asthma and downloading his ebook helped me realise what were the factors causing it and also to add some more foods into my diet which certainly helped. I haven't had any symptoms for over a year now. These books are very exhaustive listing many many herbs and foods so you only need to pick what sounds right for you but it may definitely have some value. Browse the list, maybe there is a condition that is close to what you are experiencing. http://markusrothkranz.com/online-store/e-books/index.html Hope that will be of some value to you
  15. @Annie try using a coconut oil on your skin, could help. For me it does better job than any other skin care. I would advise you to get your hormonal levels checked by a medical professional before undergoing any self treatment.
