please also remember that everybody is different. Not everyone processes nutrtients in the same way. It depends on MANY factors. I know fat vegans, skinny vegans, healthy vegans and sick vegans and the same exact list for other diet standards... each individual should pay close attention to their body and discover what works best for their health. Personally I loved being vegan, spiritually, for 5 years. I was very happy mentally but slowly getting sicker. It was a sad and difficult day to go back to animal products but FOR ME it has helped and I'm slowly regaining my health. On the other hand I have a friend that only regained her health going vegan. REAL food matters most. unprocessed. untainted. seasonal. varied. and specific to your climate and your constitution. There is no one size fits all answer. I do not agree with scare tactics on either side. I actually have to guard against slipping back into vegan ways as my grain and nut consumption goes up and my health issues are exacerbated when I do. I actually tried "paleo" for awhile but that was just way over the top... a nice middle ground has been the most beneficial. I applaud (and am in fact a bit jealous) of those that thrive on a vegan diet...but no vegan should ever look down on someone who can't, or doesn't especially if that person has attempted and is conscientious enough to be aware of their health and diet.

well no...but if you put in as you are getting ready to shower, shower, and then continue while you dry off and oil up you should be good :) and it doesn't have to be 20 minutes 10 -15 will work :)

Yep I have noticed the whitening effect and don't use the peroxide.

Way. I found less "big cheek" swishing will lessen that. try not to do it like you might swish mouth wash but think more "squishing it around"

nidra is a state of being. You can achieve nidra while in the pose called savasana. You can also lay in savasana and do progressive relaxation or drift off to sleep or listen to your teacher read rumi :) If you have never experienced a nidra session just try it and see how the CHOICE to enter nidra differs from just laying in savasana.

I have been teaching Nidra for years and my completely unPC way of describing it has always been "savasana on crack"
