longterm use of agar-35 & semde

Postby dakini_boi » Tue Oct 11, 2011 6:07 pm

Is it safe to use these formulas long-term - like for a year, or even years? This is assuming one doesn't have any major health risks.

Namdrol,

Sorry, I did not read your previous explanation of this, but can you please explain how the body processes foods differently than medicines according to TM? My initial impression is that the body is going to process anything that is ingested p.o. in the same way via the same digestive processes. How does the body distinguish between a food/herb and a medicine?

Sorry if I'm being obtuse here.

Thanks.

HHDL: "My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."

Namdrol,

Thanks for the explanation. That's very interesting. I've never heard this before. So, if one eats a new food for the first time, does that get rapidly digested until the body recognizes it as "food"? I'm just trying to get clear about this process. It's still a little bit hard for me to grasp in a way that makes sense to me.

Namdrol,

One other question: Paltul Rinpoche has had me on the same three sets of TM pills for almost a year now. Does that mean they are being absorbed as food and not as medicine?

My mother suffers from depression and seeing on Siddhi Energetics site that Semde is for depression I'm wondering if it would be helpful to my mother? Are there any contraindications?
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.
