Healing from addiction – Restoring your Prana or Life force energy

Addiction changes not only the chemical composition (neurotransmitters) of the brain but the neural pathways too. Damage to the body & mind from chronic addiction can take a considerable amount of time to heal. Fortunately, our bodies have a natural tendency towards vibrant health, even after decades of damage caused by addiction. 

When an addict becomes entirely depleted of life energy, they reach a point of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion. Dumped into a state of despair & depression, filled with cravings & without protective energy, they are vulnerable to a new addiction. 

It’s important for all humans to have an inner balance of Prana or“life force energy”.

Ancient Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine all point towards the importance of maintaining balance in the body – something which has been lost in today’s Western medicine approach. 

Ayurveda or the “Science of Life” endorses a holistic view of keeping our bodies in balance by combining applied principles of yoga, meditation, and diet.

In an article in, Yogi Amrit Desai, founder of Kripalu Yoga, points out that addictions prevent us from connecting to the innermost core of our being. “With the release of unconscious, stress-producing conflicts, an individual naturally becomes more securely established in their core self; thus, their life force is freed to activate and accelerate the power of pranic healing.”

A vital way to take in pranic energy is through the foods we eat. Food can heal, and correcting your diet can begin the framework for your healing from addiction. Our life force is replenished by the food we eat, the water we drink & the air we breathe. 

Here are some vital foods that assist in the healing process & promote Prana:

  • Raw fruit and vegetable juices
  • Fresh lime or lemon
  • Ghee
  • Beans – all of them
  • Grains – Basmati rice, quinoa, oats
  • Cumin, ginger, turmeric, fennel
  • Fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts

Ensure that all meals contain all six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent
