I'm not saying either is correct, just that I find it amusing that the TMO, being as obsessive compulsive as it is about all the stuff one has to do to stay healthy and safe (like not being outdoors during a solar eclipse and men not looking at or touching their woman for the first half of the first day of their periods) that they would applaud Dr. Ozzy who gives out anti-ayurvedic advice.
As the cook Vince said to me when I told him at MIU I was making a friends birthday cake with honey instead of sugar (the friend was adamantly opposed to refined sugar, boy was he out of place at MIU) anyway, Vince told me how un-ayurvedic it was to sweeten baked goods with honey and I said "Man, people have been cooking with honey for thousands of years." To which Vince replied "People have been unenlightened for thousands of years too!" Evidently he equated the practice of not following ayurvedic precepts in the baking of cakes with ignorance in world consciousness. ________________________________ From: obbajeeba <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Saturday, June 22, 2013 2:05 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Dr. Oz Water Michael is correct...or at least I was always warned the same thing. My God! Ice cream will increase Pitta (and this may be so) so we were told to eat whipped cream instead if we craved such a Kalpha delight. Ice was bad..and so was cold water. Carry a thermos full of hot water with you at all times. Sip through out the day. Not dissing the practice, but it is ODD that OZ said drink cold water..."Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore!"
