Case Studies : Weight loss, giddy spells, 41 yr old
This case is a 41yr female client, since a bad fall in 2018, lost her sense of smell due to damaged nerves and had a big bump on her right shoulder to neck area. It was swollen and very painful when she lied down. Tuina helped to flatten the bump. However since then, she started to have giddy spells and light-headedness whenever she lied down and turned to the right. Pain in neck and shoulders never went away.
Many do not know that if your shoulder and neck area feels pain and achy, muscles are always tight or there are bumps, it actually affects your digestive system. The problem is not just poor circulation, but energy （气）is stuck. When we activate the acupoints on shoulders, you may burp or fart. Amazing right? Yes, the body is connected. And when any part of the body has poor circulation, it affects other parts.
This client needed probiotics for the past 2 yrs. Even with probiotics, she couldn't move her bowel everyday. She wanted to lose weight but if she went on a diet, she may faint. She had food cravings too.
As usual, I told her eating less or any kind of imbalanced diet is not going to give her sustainable weight loss. She was put on our #2oneresetdetoxprogram and a very happy diet (according to her lolxx. She could eat her favourite Korean food in unlimited amount.).
In 6 days she lost 1.5kg and 1% of body fat with an increased appetite and greater amount of food intake. How can this happen? Well, calorie-counting is wrong way of losing weight. Eating right is the right way. She is so happy that she can eat rice now and still lose weight. Many things she didn't used to be able to eat, now she can eat.
Her bowel movement is daily, without probiotics. We don't need probiotics, I emphasise. The more you take the more you short-circuit the digestive system and make it lazy to reproduce your own probiotics.
Now this client finds her taste bud changed. She doesn't like luncheon meat anymore. Her breathlessness totally recovered. No more pain in her neck and shoulder. No more giddiness when she lies down. She asked, "Food really makes such a great impact?" I laughed. What other proof does one need? The proof is in your recovery. Even if blood tests show that you are well but you still feel unwell, you are truly unwell! Food heals...
We all need wisdom....
