We are all familiar with the word metabolism, regardless if you love it or hate it! Many of us are plagued with a "slow metabolism". Others faster. How can you tell?
Here is a secret I use in clinic every day. Did you know that you are supposed to have 2-3 bowel movements every day? Most people have just one daily, or every other day. Now, we eat three times a day, and if you are not eliminating 2-3 times, you have to think about where that extra food is in your body, and why is it not being processed.
What can you do about it? I like drinking herbal teas to stimulate the metabolism. Some common ingredients include green tea and orange peel. Other great choices include acupuncture and Chinese herbs!
Have a peaceful day!
