Your Tools for Health, Issue #008 is here
March 31, 2005
Welcome to the promised weight loss issue of Tools for Health. Most of us need to lose a few pounds -- many of us need to lose a lot more. What is your goal?
Starting out, especially if someone needs to lose a lot of weight, but even if only a little, it is generally a good idea to focus on losing about 10% of your body weight. This makes the process much more manageable. It is also easier to measure progress and celebrate successes!
Just about everyone already knows how to lose weight. So why don't we? The Cause of Stubborn Weight quiz may give you an idea why a particular plan of action isn't working like it should. Remind yourself which weight loss tips you are NOT doing and make some changes. And of course, expect the best results because you choose high quality resources, naturally!

Weight Loss Tips
You must respect the fact that your eating and exercise habits have a direct effect on your health and appearance. When you have the skills and knowledge needed to change your attitude toward food and exercise, it will lead to lifelong weight management and good health
Resources for Weight LossBefore beginning any herbal program, I usually recommend clients do some type of cleanse. The only time that would be contraindicated is if one is nursing, pregnant, extrememly weakened, or emaciated. Dieter's Cleanse is one of several you may want to start with.
An interesting testimonial about Dieter's Cleanse:
"You know those women who crave sugar and get constipated the week before their cycle?If a meal replacement type drink is helpful to you, try Nutri-Burn in either chocolate (my favorite) or vanilla. Personally, I mix my Nutri-Burn with oat milk (or any other type milk that I have on hand) instead of water. Something you may want to try as well. It is delicious. This is also helpful for those who tend to skip breakfast -- a big No-No for weight loss!
Every body is unique. What one person needs, another may not. Use this advanced search to choose those tools that are right for you.
In the "Select Product Category" drop down box, choose "Weight Management." Then simply choose which items you'd like to learn more about by clicking on them.

...and click on "The Mind Connection" or just scroll down to about the middle of the page.
Health QuestionsKathy asks: "How can I get rid of sinus drainage? Which supplement would help?"
In the absence of an infection, I would use either Sinus Support or ALJ. I would probably also do some type of colon cleanse (Tiao He cleanse would be good here). Frequently when there are problems, especially with one of the elimination channels, getting the colon working at its best helps alleviate problems with the others.
If you enjoy essential oils, to the above, I would add Frankincense and/or Lemon Oil. Both are favorites of mine so I would have a hard time choosing and would find a way to use both probably via the Terra-Cotta Pendants.
