Chinese Herbs For Weight Loss

Last week I got an email from a woman asking which herbal remedy she should take for weight loss.

According to Chinese medicine it's not just bad diet, overeating and lack of exercise that lead to weight gain. There are a number of underlying internal causes, i.e. organ imbalances, involved and which make you more susceptible to weight gain.

By organ imbalances I am not just referring to physical imbalances but also emotional imbalances - in Chinese medicine each internal organ has an associated emotional component, e.g. the liver and anger, kidneys and fear.

Chinese medicine can address the underlying physical and emotional imbalances related to weight gain. It does this through such things as herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary and lifestyle modification and specific exercises and self-help techniques.

My reply to the woman is here.

Also, the new program (Chinese Self Massage Techniques) is still 50% off. For more info see the Programs page.


Any questions, as always just let me know.
