That is the question Deepak Chopra asked the Harvard professor of Neurology, Rudy Tanzi, and it was the start of their research on lifestyle as preventative and curing of disease. At Olive we have 7 Principal Principles and #2 goes: We Are a Process not a Product. It’s clear what we think of the brain. It’s a verb! We think everything is a process. Even the stone with its high density mass is transforming over time. We definitely are! In seven years we don’t have one single cell that is the same. There is no power in Now, the power meaning the energy of life, Prana, is in accepting the change and being aware of it. Have a mind, don’t let it have you.
Decisions we made in the past was done in another context than now, in another cellular body, in another mind. There is no point in beating ourselves or others up for something we did 10, 20, 30 years ago. We weren’t we then. Let go of the now, accept the change, feel the Here. Yes! Here, be in the Here. That’s what the Now means. Not in time but in space. Be where you are; at work, with a friend, eating, on the phone, at a museum. That is healthy! The mind as the body is a tool, an instrument, a device, or much better, it’s a gift. A gift that nature gave you and that you can use. So ask yourself if the mind is using you or you are using the mind. Step our of yourself and observe. Meditate!
So very often we do the opposite. We hang on to the memory. Actually the strong memories cannot be forgotten, we can always go back and find them. But we can transform them. See them from other angels, other perspective and we can then ‘rewire’ our emotions that are connected to those strong memories. That’s what we call a Mind Detox. There is something hugely freeing to get out of a memory and see it with other eyes. The old Ayurvedic recommendation on how to do this works; Observe yourself from the outer perspective.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
