This unique holistic weight management journey will help you to manage cravings or lose weight and keep it off by bringing your body, mind and emotions together.
How does it work?
The 8 week journey will be tailored to your individual weight loss goals, health and lifestyle. The focus of the journey is to help you achieve the best healthy version of you by guiding and supporting you in three main areas:
1. Food & Diet
In Chinese Medicine food is viewed to be more than vitamins and minerals; it acts as medicine to help boost your well-being and prevent illness. On this journey you will be given guidance on a healthy eating plan tailored to your individual health requirements, food preferences or allergies. The foundation of the eating plan is to limit refined sugar and processed foods and one that strengthens your health based on the energetic property of food that will heal you.
You will be given acupuncture once a week to help regulate hunger, balance your hormones and boost your metabolism and energy. A recent study showed acupuncture to be very effective in weight loss and reducing waist circumference, this treatment will help your body to detox, rebalance and shed excess weight.
You may feel other health benefits of acupuncture such as improved immunity, more energy and better sleep.
3. Mindful eating
Mindful eating is not a new fad diet but a healthy, healing way of eating. It is based on the ancient Buddhist art of mindfulness that brings your awareness to live in the moment. When we live on autopilot rushing to get things done we are rarely focused on what we are doing in the present moment. Busy lives lead us to grab food on the go or binge eat. In such cases we will have lost track of when we are hungry or when we are full. Mindful eating heals this disconnection between our body and mind. The NHS is now recommending this ancient technique as studies have proven it to be effective for reducing overeating, binge eating, lowering weight and body mass index, helping to cope with anxious thoughts about food and chronic eating problems such as anorexia and bulimia as well as helping to improve the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes.
If you are interested in embarking upon a journey that changes your relationship with food that gives you better health, vitality, more energy and the confidence to feel good about yourself then this is for you…
“I have just come to the end of my first week of the eight week mindful eating journey and I have lost 5lbs in weight and an inch off my waist. I am extremely pleased with my results and I am even more motivated to carry on. The diet plan has been very practical and easy to follow, with so much variety, so I enjoy following it. The acupuncture alongside has been brilliant as it has helped me to detach my emotional links to food and now I’m not craving food that as I was previously. I am much more in control of my eating habits. I feel more calm, balanced and in control. Thank you so much Mita for your help”. Mrs M, Coventry
