Patient discussion about simple

Q. Can any one help her to reduce her weight in a simple way? Hi, my cousin Lee; 2 years ago she got married. Now she have 1 child. After her delivery her weight increased to 200 pounds. She tried to lose about 40 pounds but she reduced up to 160 pounds. Now she is unable to maintain those pounds. Now she started to gain some more weight again. She didn’t change her diet. Can any one help her to reduce her weight in a simple way? And how can she maintain it?

A. Generally some women will gain weight after their delivery. I feel happy to hear that your cousin tried to reduce her weight and she was success in it. But her problem is that she didn’t maintain it. Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and 2 servings of low-fat milk. Not even diet soda. Balance a 2:1, protein, carbohydrate ratio in every meal and snack. Don’t eat meat, crabs or any heavy food within 5 hours of bedtime. And try to exercise at least 2-3 times a week. These are some easiest way which helped me to reduce my weight. Hope this will help your cousin too. All the best!

What makes TCM close to modern medicine and what are 5-element treatment and their role in depression and related disorders like bipolar.

A. To be simple let me say that TCM is similar to modern type of system as they try to link the diagnosis with the biochemical nature of the body. TCM diagnoses and try to treat bipolar and other depression related disorder from physiochemical understanding., whereas 5-element therapy does not treat body as it is concerned with spirit treatment and is completely different subject to understand and yes it has been reported to heal depression in many.
