Weight is an essential issue for many people. There is no doubt that under weight and overweight conditions are, like any disease, partly due to cleansing and detoxification 101 in herited genetic patterns. Thyroid function, amino acid performance, metabolism in general, liver function, and the well-being of the stomach and pancreas all have great bearing on how well or badly we store or use our fat supplies. We would all love to be just the right weight, but few of us are.
Those who are underweight would love to be more formed, muscular, “fi lledout,” or simply warmer and having more energy; those who are overweight know only too well that it is unhealthy and slows us down. Obviously a whole-body tuning using cleanses and organic foods will help to compensate. Taking plenty of water helps remove excess toxins, which are always stored in fatty tissue.
Eat less, but eat well. Desired weight loss is aided by spirulina algae, kelp, evening primrose oil, chickweed leaf, dandelion root and leaf, and burdock root, whereas desired weight gain is aided by fenugreek seed tea or decoction, marshmallow root, and slippery elm inner bark. Weight can plunge during cleanses in those with chronic diseases, and when switching to new food programs.
This can be unavoidable, but olive oil massages will help “feed” the body. Slippery elm inner bark, fenugreek seed tea or decoction, and miso gruel will help to feed and nourish and keep undesirable weight loss at bay. Superfoods like algae or wheat or barley grasses will ensure proper nutrition while (or if ) weight loss is occurring. Eventually the weight will creep back on and metabolism will be optimal, as all organs and systems find a greater harmony and wellbeing.
