With chapters 1 and 2 finished on our food therapy book, we’re stepping up to make the writing go faster. Our timeline is to have the first draft completed by next summer, so we can get final revisions done by the end of next year! The first chapter discusses the basic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine food therapy and our weight loss and digestion patients love it. We also finished the second chapter on Dampness and Phlegm. Next week we’re looking forward to starting the chapter on foods that calm the mind (to help with stress, irritability, and anxiety) and foods to uplift the mind (to help with depression and melancholy). This is one of our most exciting chapters because mental health is what we’re super passionate about here at Beautiful Ama. We do sell the chapters of our book to our patients as pamphlets, so make an appointment if you’re interested in learning more!
I’m so excited about the Holistic Weight Loss Program that I’ve developed as a collaborative effort with Senia at Healing InSight that I can’t sleep. We start with acupuncture, herbs, and food therapy (of course) and include other perks like weigh-ins, measurements, lifestyle coaching, books, and things you can do at home to increase your metabolism and lose that weight. Recently we’ve expanded the program to include a 7 day weight loss detox, meal ideas, and new chapters of the food therapy books we’re writing. My patients love the program so much that after the initial 10 weeks, they’ve been requesting phase 2 so they can continue losing weight with the same support that has been so successful in phase 1. So we finally finished putting that together and we’re too excited to sleep!
