I studied Chinese Medicine for 4 years (Masters in Science/ Eastern Medicine) and can apply almost everything I learned to all aspects of health! There is something we used in diagnosing all patients called the 10 Questions. I still use it today for my weight loss clients to see where they are at in terms of overall health. As I review each question below, answer on your own to see if you have any imbalances!
As you answered the above questions, did you think “yes, I do have that problem” OR “yes, I crave that all the time” OR “yes, I only have a bowel movement 1X every few days!”? The bad news is, if you answered that way to several questions, you likely have some imbalances in your body and your health. These imbalances could eventually lead to illness or further chronic issues. The good news is that you can likely harmonize these imbalances with healthy food and exercise! I have seen clients completely change the answers to the 10 Questions with 6-12 weeks of guidance in nutrition and exercise!
Never underestimate the power of clean food! Not only is food your fuel, but it can also have medicinal qualities. In Eastern Medicine, we prescribe different food choices to patients instead of giving them a pill that only masks the true problem. If you clean up your system with proper nutrition and exercise, you can often fix the underlying issue in your body without simply masking the symptom! So, the next time you have a craving or an irregular menstrual cycle ask yourself, “am I eating clean and working out?” If not, you know where you can at least get started in feeling better. Start taking care of you!
