Curcumin

Curcumin, also known as turmeric, is a medicinal herb that is most widely known for its presence in Indian curries. Its bulbous root has been hailed for its medicinal properties as an anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer agent. As you can see, its perrenial flower is strikingly-beautiful hot pink and blooms every year around Easter season. After a few weeks, the flowers are overtaken by beautiful green leaves with a purple stripe down the middle.

We use fresh curcumin in our healthy vegan food, and also as a topical medicine for treating some skin conditions in humans and animals.

Gandhi's Transformation

Gandhi, with mange and malnutrition, before healing at Vida Lotus

Gandhi, when he first walked past Vida Lotus Retreat & Spa, was on a starvation diet, was extremely thin, and suffered a severe case of mange. The following two photos do NOT do justice to how horrible his skin was. He had open wounds covering much of his body, with thousands of maggots and countless other parasites literally eating him alive. He may have been the saddest dog in history.

Immediate and Lasting Migraine Relief

My Protocol for Immediate and Lasting Migraine Relief

After more than two decades of experimentation, I succeeded in developing a highly effective, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment protocol for chronic headaches and chronic migraines. The hallmark of my system is a unique method of restoring the normal energy flow (wiggliness!) throughout the entire body, such that the body is able to “heal itself” quickly and efficiently. This self-healing includes proper oxygenation and detoxification, which are apparently hindered by a lack of “wiggliness”.

In most cases, my migraine-healing method can eliminate an acute migraine attack in under ten minutes. By the end of the first session (which typically lasts 1.5 – 2 hours), the energy flow has been restored to the extent that approximately 80% of migraine sufferers will not have a recurrence for an extended period, generally 6 months – 1 year, even without a follow-up treatment. In the remaining 20% of subjects where migraines do continue, they are generally more than 50% less frequent and less severe. In these cases, a follow-up treatment may further improve the condition.

What is Yoga

michael ducharme and yael side plank yoga pose

Yoga is unity, union. It is the reality of the entire universe; I am yoga, you are yoga.

Yoga is not an exercise. It is not an activity. You don’t have to ‘disconnect’ from the universe, nor is it possible. Sure, you can put your phone down for a bit. But you are always connected. Nothing to connect. Just be aware, that’s all.

Before Vida Lotus

The following videos are of Marilyn speaking in Spanish, but the full text has been translated and is given below.

“Before coming to Vida Lotus, I had many headaches, migraines, a bit of depression. Emotionally I was disoriented, unable to concentrate due to insomnia. I stayed awake for a long time… 24 hours … I couldn’t sleep. My diet was very, very bad. I had very much stress. I felt tired before coming to Vida Lotus. ”
