  1. DESCRIPTION SOCH is a grass roots mental initiative aimed at starting the conversation about mental health to first break the stigma surrounding the subject matter and second to empower our community with the knowledge and skills to better manage their own mental health. This event is our first gurdwara workshop where we will be having an open discussion with the Sikh community to break the stigma surrounding mental health, while discussing warning signs and available resources. We encourage you to attend this event with your parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends. DATE AND TIME Sat, August 12, 2017 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT LOCATION Sikh Spiritual Centre Toronto 9 Carrier Drive Toronto, ON M9V 4B2 Canada Source - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/breaking-the-mental-health-stigma-in-the-sikh-community-tickets-36359566442?aff=es2
  2. Diet vs Karma

    It's a well known fact that a correct diet ensures longevity, long life and resolves health issues. Youtube "Okinawa long life" and "Japan long life" for evidence. Over there since no pollution and junk food exists people aged 80 to 105 live lives like they're no more than 40. Even Gurbaani states "My appetite is simple daana paani" (simple cooked food like rice, steamed saabjia and water) or nature grown food. However, it's interesting to note that education fails to teach us of healthy living and benefits of it like after aged 80 the effects.The consumption rate of unhealthy food is high. It's also interesting to note that Swami Ramdev's yoga's been ongoing for 10 plus years, cure cancer yet cancer's STILL out there attacking people. Now there will be plenty of arguments on reasons for it; Governments see profit so will not stop selling junk, education/ parent's to blame, doctors to blame, Scientists do not do enough research... LOADS of arguments (Mind you, maybe people like me who buy such food meself now and then is added to the reason). Now, there's a Saakhi where Guru Nanak Dev Ji cures a leprosy man by placing a sheet over him. Guru Nanak Ji could have said "Eat simple you shall be cured within a year." However, I also think how a man got leprosy during that time? Fizzy and bad food did not exist anywhere let alone a place like India. That man was going through bad karma! What does this mean? "I am going through health problems because of my karma?" It may sound like I am going in that direction BUT, if by eating the correct food I believe health issues (like cancer too) can be cured. OF COURSE it's news under the carpet/ Scientists will not mention this fact... How else will they make a living? (100% answer means no researchers and scientists required so they get made redundant) AND on top, everyone's body's are different so what works on one individual will not on another. Doctors can pinpoint what will work and not by going through tests. HOWEVER! Everyone has their own doctor within them. Ever consumed sugar or ghee and thought "I get itching or inflammation problem?" Or rash by fizzy drinks? This is a sign to give up/ extremely limit such foods. By giving it up means you can move on to simple daana paani which will immensely improve on your jeevans. Also, you will automatically wake before dawn and the body will feel good. So good that waking up b4 dawn comes with ease and tiredness is not there. The energy it brings is awesome! But there is another problem. Imagine the whole world giving up on all junk foods. What will become of fizzy drink and crisps, mithaai manufactures? They will close then where will the people go? How about McD's workers who must provide for their family? One solution is they open up where they sell organic food and veggies/ fruits for customers. Then ALL restaurants will be 100% the same across the world. Second solution, if not first solution then to minimise our purchase of junk immensely like once in a while. When was the last time you purchased a sofa? Do you go every week to buy a sofa? Once a month/ year? NO!? But Businesses like DFS are still open as they get DIFFERENT customers everyday. If they can do it, so can McD's (Different customers that come in 100's to the branches) but it's up to us to make a change. NOW all this I wrote can be contradicted by adding Karma! Why does one suffer of ill health? Even if they eat the correct food their illness never went away? They went to doctors, 100's of treatments? yet they still suffer? This is clearly to do with Karma. Does this mean we should give up and eat all the junk? NO! It means we should first give a change of food a go before we come to a decision. Was it karma? Or just a change of diet was needed?
  3. If you or you know loved ones ill on health it may be ideal to try Swami Ramdev, a well renowned Yoga master (yeah yeah we all know him) in India. The Vilaum nirom (think it's called) is a form of breathing exercise where you close one side of nose, inhale deeply, then press other side of nose and exhale. Then inhale again before exhaling by pressing other side of nose. This should be done for 20 mins before breakfast and again in the evening after 2 - 3 hours gap if eaten anything. Also, food is important! Giving up fizzy drinks and only drink water, fresh home made fruit juices and milk. Instead of crisps/ biscuits go for dried fruits, almonds and kacchi sholay (Dariaa) all can be brought from cash n carry/ Indian shops. Speaking of fruit try consuming at least one different fruit everyday not just apple, banana and all the fruits we tend to find sweet n juicy. IN TWO WEEKS TIME of doing this there will be a massive improvement in health, whatever the ill health may be. (Include depression)! Food affects the brain and how we think, feel all is caused by chemicals signalled from the brain. How are the chemicals created? mainly by food MORE than life situations. NOW am sure some Sikhs may think "But isn't it against Sikhi to do such Yogas?" Simple answer, no. What will an obese person, who must lose weight, do? Meditate on Naam or exercise? which of the 2 will suit them the most? They're ill health, need help am afraid Naam will be shakti for the mind not the body here. So being open minded and taking an advantage of Swami Ji's yoga plus changing the diet should be used.
  4. VJKK VJKF, just quick question. I am a semi professionall athlete for my local running club. Im a amritdhari who regualary suffers from joint pain during long distance races and training. Recently, I started using a new external cream for my skin and joints which contains glucosamine, aloe vera, coconut oil and other healthy ingredients. . However after using it I found out that another ingredient within the cream called MSM contains a certain amount of shelfish amongst other normal ingredients. I am coming to the end of this small tub and want to ask sangat if theres any suggestions for any different types of knee pain creams? I prefer the creams instead of the tablets incase I internally consume anything which may have meat or gelatine type ingredients. VJKK VJKF

  8. Mental Health

    Hello folks, I need some help. I have become very emotional again, as I think about some crazy things. Which I don't want to tell, as it is a bit weird. I feel that I changed as I grow up. I used to remember my self as being goofy, and happy when I was little, and now I feel that I changed. Some emotions had happened to me when I was in grade 5 I got bullied cause of being Indian, and in Grade 6 I was sad as most of my friends go to different school, even though I meet them at each other houses. I keep surfing on the internet, and when I see tragedies, it effects my mind. I don' t know what to do man.

  10. Sound Techniques.

    Ok I don't know much about your meditation techniques but have they anything to do with sound and vibration? I know a little about this subject: http://www.meetup.com/UK-Buqi-Alignment/events/220194133/ http://www.shenbuqi.com/6-sounds-daoyin/ I was wondering if you could read the articles and tell me if Sikh meditation has any similarities to this. Do you use sound and vibration as a method of reaching your ultimate goal? Thanks.
  11. Growing Your Own

    How many of your Singhs and Singhnis out there like to grow your own vegetables. My neighbours on either side both their own vegetables and sometimes I feel I should do the same but I am too lazy. Went to the local supermarket and bought some Spinach and green beans, when I looked at where they were grown one said Kenya and the other one Spain. Unless you are buying something like pineapples and bananas, why does vegetables that can be grown locally have to come from so far away.
  12. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/834247?nlid=69703_428&src=wnl_edit_medp_fmed&uac=201004BZ&spon=34 A high intake of milk might, however, have undesirable effects, because milk is the main dietary source of D-galactose. Experimental evidence in several animal species indicates that chronic exposure to D-galactose is deleterious to health and the addition of D-galactose by injections or in the diet is an established animal model of aging.[4-7] Even a low dose of D-galactose induces changes that resemble natural aging in animals, including shortened life span caused by oxidative stress damage, chronic inflammation, neurodegeneration, decreased immune response, and gene transcriptional changes.[5,7]A subcutaneous dose of 100 mg/kg D-galactose accelerates senescence in mice.[5] This is equivalent to 6-10 g in humans, corresponding to 1-2 glasses of milk. Based on a concentration of lactose in cow's milk of approximately 5%, one glass of milk comprises about 5 g of D-galactose. The increase of oxidative stress with aging and chronic low grade inflammation is not only a pathogenetic mechanism of cardiovascular disease and cancer in humans[8,9] but also a mechanism of age related bone loss and sarcopenia.[9,10] The high amount of lactose and therefore D-galactose in milk with theoretical influences on processes such as oxidative stress and inflammation makes the recommendations to increase milk intake for prevention of fractures a conceivable contradiction.
  13. I almost have a six pack now but I am now thinking what was the point all this time? To impress the females? I am a bit confused now...
  14. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I would just like to share some info about some radiation that is emitted by a lot of products in our homes. These include your wireless router for Wifi. cordless phones and mobile phones Please have a look at this video http://youtu.be/ICA19oKPi5I Cordless phone shows radiation emitting without making a call, even while on the base: http://youtu.be/2V4AmkMKg_0 Very High amounts coming from a mobile phone: http://youtu.be/GOgo0z_98JQ?list=UUaLwcpzmAp9cYPmMdKmhb9g From a laptop http://youtu.be/fCp8itdHYxg Please take the time to have a quick look at these videos, Its actually amazing that this amount of radiation is filling our homes, work places and schools day to day. I don't think this is good for health long term. This is rarely talked about at the moment, but I think these devices should be used with care to limit exposure. There are some tips to reduce exposure: Used wired internet access through an Ethernet cable and turn off your wifi capability from the router (you may need to go online to do this, its not as easy as just plugging in an Ethernet as it continues to transmit, please check it) Keep mobile phone calls short or use a hands free kit, use speakerphone, text Keep mobiles far from your body if possible, turn your device to airplane mode (or switch off if not using it) Don't sleep with your mobile near your head or body (turn on to airplane mode or even better switch it off) Use a corded phone, its safer When sleeping turn off cordless phones, wifi and other electrics as much as you can. even alarm clock radios close to your head transmit Use laptops on a table, try not to put them on your lap. When using a laptop it transmits much more radiation when on charge rather than not on charge Turn your laptop to airplane mode, (turn off the wireless function) This is massive subject area that is virtually unknown but is people are gaining more knowledge, Good youtube in depth talk http://youtu.be/dYjAAqUfHtE Mobile Phone Towers There are numerous mobile phone towers or antennas on building around the UK, They are in residential areas, these towers emit frequencies constantly day and night and there may be 3 or 4 in one area. Many people have bad effects from living close to them http://youtu.be/MvSTN5rMORM There is a website which you can look at to see how far you live from one: http://sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/ This information is virtually unknown to most people plus there is not a lot of scientific research at the moment but if you are suffering from fatigue, headaches, etc please consider these solutions and see how you get on. Please tell your friends and family about this if you find it helpful. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

  17. I Need To Lose 70 Pounds !

  18. Share ... for most people its weight loss. Guru Nanak devji says ' "Dhrig eheva jeeveiya jit khai vadaiyaa pet" Having pot belly is not just a health concern , its also against gurmat as it symbolizes indulgence in pleasures of tongue. It also goes against - "Alap ahaari sulabh si nidra " and "thora save thora hee khave" From my experience I alwyas had a pot belly before i went vegan .... animal fats are extremely hard to burn off ......so quit that dairy and see ur didh disappear ... and the cows will be so much happier too...

  22. Countries consuming the most milk products also have the highest rates of degenerating bone disease (like osteoporosis), heart disease, breast cancer, allergies, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. The United States consumes more dairy than the rest of the world put together and yet has the highest levels of osteoporosis and weak bones in the world. Milk does NOT put calcium in our bones- it does the opposite- it PULLS calcium from our bones making them weak, soft and brittle. Why ? Because dairy products are acidic to our body, which forces our body to protect itself by pulling alkaline minerals from wherever it can get it- namely our bones- to neutralize the acids. This ironically leads to calcium deficiency. Cow's milk is not the same as human milk. The calcium in cows milk or cheese is not the same as calcium from organic plant sources like leafy greens (that's where cows get their calcium !) Milk and cheese are the leading cause of arthritis, constipation, allergies, asthma, colic, sinus issues, heart disease, ovarian problems, anemia, insulin-dependent diabetes, cataracts, obesity, congestion, lung problems and even cancer. It has been directly linked to heart attacks and stroke. When people are autopsied, they cut open the heart and all this white thick goo pours out... gues what it is ? Calcium plaque ! That's like trying to use cement instead of oil in your car's engine. Dairy creates mucus which clogs up our intestines, lungs and reproductive systems, overloading them with slimy mucus that smothers our cells so they can't breathe. When white spots start appearing on different parts of the body, it means fat and mucus has spread throughout the respiratory and reproductive systems. Hormonal imbalances often result, including thyroid, pancreatic and gonad functions. This condition results in cysts and tumors, eventually leading to cancer, expecially breast, colon and reproductive areas. All animal products lead to fat and cholesterol deposits in the arteries and heart, lining them with a white thick pasty cement made of inorganic calcium. Nothing clogs up your intestines faster than cheese and dairy. It is glue. Cows milk contains higher levels of saturated fat than human milk, meaning cholesterol buildup and blood circulation problems in babies and adults. Too much bad unusable calcium is actually the real cause of osteoporosis. Milk and cheese is one reason more women are dying today of heart problems and cancer than ever before. People have all kinds of inorganic calcium clogging up their bodies and hardly any good absorbable calcium. If you think cheese isn't an addictive substance, try and separate a woman from cheese. Pasteurizing milk (boiling at high temperature) kills the enzymes, so the milk cannot be properly digested. The pancreas can't replace these missing , so here comes diabetes. Homogenizing milk makes fat particles so tiny they go through the intestinal mucus, directly into the bloodstream where they become an alien substance ( like hydrogenated oils or margarine) that he body doesn't know what to do with, it so it accumulates in the arteries, joints, heart and other organs. Pasteurized milk is dead food. Calves (baby cows) fed pasteurized milk normally die after 8 weeks ! Even if you drank it raw, you wouldn't want to. Most cows are sick and diseased. They are milked by a machine causing blood and pus to be in the milk. When a human drinks milk, only half of the protein is used, the rest becomes foreign protein in the body... and foreign proteins are the number one cause of all disease in humans. It puts a serious strain on the kidneys ( the kidneys of a meat eater or someone who drinks milk or eats cheese) has to work 3 times harder than the kidneys of a vegetarian. They ultimately turn to stone. It's very hard on a baby because the kidneys aren't even fully formed yet. A 12 year Harvard study of 72,000 showed those who drank the most milk (3 or more glasses a day) had more bone fractures than those who drank very little. Where do cows and horses, goats and elephants get calcium ? From grass. Greens have more nutrition than almost anything on the planet. The best way to make greens digestible for humans is to put them in a blender with some fruit. That makes all the nutrients instantly absorbable. Excerpt from HEAL YOURSELF 101 by Markus Rothkranz We don't eat meat because of compassion for animals - then why do we steal milk that was intended for calves ? Also as we all know cows at dairy farms have horrendous living coniditions - why be part of a system that is hurtful ?
