Title: Master Your Metabolism
Author: Lewis Harrison
 
Excerpt
As a long-time teacher, writer, and consultant on health matters, I have often been asked by readers, students, clients, physicians, and practitioners of various healing arts to compile a book about using herbs and spices to facilitate weight loss. Welcome to Master Your Metabolism.You are beginning an exciting journey of discovery. You will experience how easy it can be to manage your weight with herbs. Your body will reward you by becoming stronger, cleaner, and more energized. I promise you will feel the difference! Along the way, you’ll gain valuable and up-to-date knowledge about herbs, spices, and whole-food meal planning. The first section of this book is designed to provide you with the fundamental knowledge you will require to succeed at the program. By learning about the history of herbs, the anatomy and physiology of weight management, the emotional and physical aspects of working with herbs, and more, you will have a better understanding of all the many ways that herbs and herbal-based products can help you slim down so you won’t have to resort to extreme, unbalanced approaches.Master Your Metabolism provides a complete step-by-step guide to detoxifying, healing, and rejuvenating both body and mind through the proper use of herbs. This book demystifies herbs by fitting them into daily, practical use for direct results in detoxification and weight loss. It provides recipes for herbal supplements and teas based on ingredients that are easy to obtain and directions that are easy to follow. The book also shows how nutritious but inexpensive food can be prepared to rebuild and maintain vigorous good health.I wrote this book in order to provide the public with a safe and effective herbal weight-loss system. The key to its effectiveness lies in the unusual combination of thermogenic and detoxifying herbs, essential nutrients, and foods that suppress your appetite through their rating on the Glycemic Index. These herb and food combinations boost your fat-burning metabolism and promote optimal detoxification and cleansing, helping to maintain optimal energy levels.The herbal preparations, recipes, and meal menus in this program are designed to both detoxify and nourish. The program is designed to help you lose weight while relaxing and regenerating nerve and muscle tissue, improving cellular absorption of oxygen and other nutrients, strengthening intestinal muscles, improving peristalsis, and increasing bowel evacuation to bring about the gradual cleansing of the intestinal tract. The temperature and viscosity of the blood are normalized, thus normalizing blood pressure. These simple and natural elements of good health are arranged and indexed for easy reference and provide a unique guide to the enjoyment of good food to anyone wanting to lose weight and rid the body of toxins.The overall result of the program is a fuller, more vigorous life. A variety of more specific results can be expected, including major improvements in digestive system functioning, reduction of arthritic pain, elimination of some types of menstrual pain, and an increase in mental concentration. The program also results in an increase in general stamina, rejuvenation of the skin, reduction in allergic reactions, increased capacity for relaxation and restful sleep, reduction and control of food cravings and mood swings, and improved mental outlook.Each page is packed with valuable herbal and nutritional information to help you organize a complete weight-loss and health-building regimen. Some steps of the program call for ordinary fruits and vegetables, while others require easily obtained herbs, spices, grains, beans, and other ingredients. The book offers specific suggestions and guidelines to increase the vitamin, mineral, protein, and healing value of each herbal dish.Part One of the program integrates Western and Eastern herbal healing modalities, using herbal nervines and blood cleansers along with aromatherapy and flower remedies. Much of the program involves using herbs to both cleanse the blood and increase body metabolism. Clean blood carries nutrients to the cells and removes waste from the organs and tissues. A healthy nervous system ensures proper coordination of the elimination and rebuilding functions. Part One also addresses the emotional issues connected with obesity. On a nutritional level, I address hormonal factors in obesity and explain why a high-refined carbohydrate, low-fat diet may not be the smartest choice in an effective weight-loss program.Part Two provides the complete program, including meal plans and recipes. The herbal dietary recipes are simple to prepare, some requiring only a few minutes. Each meal will revitalize your body.Following this program will have an immediate impact on your health and will lead you to the threshold of a greatly improved quality of life.
