October Newsletter

Falli's Word

Happy October dear family and friends! 


I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the start of the Autumn season. This time of year is always special for me as my birthday falls in the month of October. Birthdays are a time for joy and celebration, but each year for my birthday I prefer to share happiness and knowledge as opposed to receiving gifts.


I often host a speaker here at Seventh Wonder Holistic Spa to educate our community and Seventh Wonder family on different topics to share knowledge. With the understanding that the capacity for this year's event is limited due to COVID-19 concerns, I will be hosting a small cooking class to share the fun of creating and eating vegan cuisine to celebrate my birthday.


This class will be held during the month of November, so please keep watch for more details on this in the next few weeks.


Results from Luvin Arms 5th Annual Virtual Gala

Following up from last month's newsletter, Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary hosted their 5th Annual Gala during the month of September. 


For any who are not familiar with Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary, it is an organization that is near and dear to our hearts here at Seventh Wonder Holistic Spa. Luvin Arms provides a refuge for abused and neglected farm animals and promotes a more compassionate lifestyle through education and outreach programs throughout the community.


We would like to say a big thank you to all who participated in Luvin Arms' 5th Annual Gala. As many of you know, any gratuity given to Falli is donated to Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary. This year, because of the love and support of all of you, Seventh Wonder Holistic Spa was able to donate $6,000.00 to this wonderful organization, which was matched by an anonymous donor bringing our contribution to a total of $12,000.00!


In total, Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary received $133,277.17 in donations from this event!

 

Oil Pulling


Some of you may have heard of oil pulling as it has been an increasingly more popular topic over the years and much more so now due to people concerned about their health in the midst of COVID-19. But did you know oil pulling dates back thousands of years in Ayurvedic texts?


It was mentioned in Sanskrit texts as Kaval/Gandush. Oil pulling was used then as a daily practice just as many oil pull daily now.

 

What are some of the benefits?

There are many benefits to oil pulling on a daily basis, but some include

  • imporoving the muscle tone of the tongue and cheek
  • encouraging blood circulation
  • helps forms the protective layers of lipids that assist in preventing and removing plaque from the teeth
  • whitening of teeth
  • increases strength in jaw
  • assists in healing ulcers
  • scientifically proven to reduce bacteria and other microorganisims in the mouth by generating antioxidants that damage the cell wall of microorganisms ultimately killing them

How do I oil pull?

Oil pulling should be done in the morning before brushing your teeth and on an empty stomach. 

Put 1 teaspoon of lukewarm oil in the mouth and move it around the mouth by using your cheek muscles and tongue for up to 10 minutes. You may take breaks in between if needed.

As the saliva mixes with the oil, the volume will increase and it will form a soapy consistency within your moth.

When the 10 minutes is complete, throw out the oil and gargle with warm water gently to remove any excess oil.

Coconut oil and sesame oil are commonly used for this practice. In normal health conditions, there are usually no side effects of oil pulling. 



Be sure to store the oil in a clean bottle or jar to prevent any fungus growth.  

If you are unwell and are suffering from any illness, please consult a doctor prior to deciding to partake in oil pulling.

Kundalini yoga  is called the yoga of awareness and it awakens you to your full potential. This happens through stimulating the Kundalini energy, which lies dormant at 

the base of your spine, causing the energy to rise up through the energy centers, or chakras, of the body.  The goal of Kundalini Yoga is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.  Kundalini Yoga uses drishti (or eye focus), mudras (hand postures), asanas (postures), and chanting, combining all of these together, helps to increase physical healing and emotional peace.This session will include tuning in, warm ups, pranayama (breathing techniques), kriya (set of exercises), deep relaxation and meditation. It is suitable for all ages and stages.
