Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Use of Intermittent Fasting for Health

Posted by Kenny Liang on 27/02/19 11:00 AM

There are two ways of getting energy for daily function, one is burning the nutrients from food, the carbohydrates and sugars especially. The other is burning stored fats. When we are eating, we derive energy to serve our muscular functions from the nutrients in the food. Extra nutrients are changed into fats which can be quickly oxidised or burned to supply energy if needed. When we fast or do not eat, if the body needs the energy to function, the reserves of fat are called up to be oxidised and provide energy for activities of the body that calls for it. After a meal, fat is stored. Between meals, stored fat is slowly released, keeping body cells supplied with energy. The brain needs the immediate, easily oxidised converted sugars (glucose) from food, the bodily organs burn the energy from stored fats. When we eat, nutrition not immediately burned is stored as fats. If we eat too much, we store excess fats until we have more stored fats than the body will reasonably use.

Natural ways to Detoxify your body with Foods and Herbs

Posted by Kenny Liang on 9/01/19 11:00 AM

The human body has many systems that function to detoxify itself. The kidney, the liver, skin cells, and lungs actively remove toxins as they operate. Yet the idea of an external detoxifier remains popular in the culture and in the marketplace. Much of this detoxification marketplace is discounted by medical science.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) lends its voice to the idea that healthy bodies should be left to operate without additional substances and artificial detoxification. The perspective of TCM is stated as "Go with the flow of nature and use its unlimited power to achieve and maintain a healthy balanced body."
