Session: 01 Hour
Digestive Health - Harmonizing Earth According to Oriental Medicine, a strong Earth, or digestive system plays the most important role in our overall health. It enables us to extract life supporting nourishment and Qi (life energy) from our food as well as providing the first line of defense against harmful microorganisms, i.e., parasites and yeast. Our digestive system is a complex harmony between healthy and unhealthy bacteria. When unhealthy bacteria begin to grow out of control it is called dysbiosis (not living in harmony), this can lead to such symptoms as bloating, gas, irregular bowel movements, constipation, acid reflux, gallbladder issues, food and environmental sensitivities. The Digestive Health Wellness Protocol introduces a simple elimination diet and targeted nutrition that helps clean and strengthens the digestive system, resulting in better absorption of nutrients and elimination of harmful microorganism and toxins.

Detoxification and Inflammation - Removing Stagnations According to Oriental Medicine, the liver and the lungs are responsible for maintaining the free flow of Qi. When the Qi is not constrained, the body is able to effectively remove harmful toxins and manage pain and inflammation. However, when the liver Qi becomes stagnate, it is unable to effectively perform these functions resulting in such symptoms as chronic pain, inflammation, fatigue, chemical sensitivities, tumors or cysts, acne, rashes headaches, food and environmental allergies, fertility issues, memory loss, neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s syndrome) and certain types of cancers. The Detoxification and Inflammation Wellness Protocol is designed to support the movement of Qi and facilitate the cleansing process safely and effectively removing stored toxins. These include pesticides from food and water, environmental pollutants, heavy metals (lead and mercury), pesticides, and internally produced toxins resulting from a highly processed diet and poor eating habits.

Weight Loss – Harmonizing the Middle According to Oriental Medicine, when the digestive system is able to transform food into nutrients and the liver can maintain the free flow of Qi, the muscles and tendons will remain strong and flexible. When the digestive system and the liver are not in harmony, body shape is altered, our muscles become soft and weak, our tendons become hard and inflexible and we begin to accumulate food, dampness, and phlegm, resulting in weight gain or obesity. Research shows that obesity contributes to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. The Weight Loss Wellness Protocol introduces targeted nutrition and a simple elimination diet, with food targeted to support the liver and the digestive system. There are also specific exercises that are simply an easy to follow to enhance and maintain your optimum weight. Applying the principles of Oriental Medicine, we maintain the balance between the liver and the digestive system, we will remain strong and lean.
Session: 01 Hour
Stress Management – Calming the Spirit According to Oriental Medicine, our emotions are controlled by the heart, which houses the spirit, or 'shen'. In today’s fast-paced society the vast majority of individuals are under constant stress. An unhealthy response to stress can lead to adrenal burn or exhaustion. Research has shown that stress can be a contributing factor to obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and psychological and neurological disorders. The Stress Management Wellness Protocol introduces nutrients and herbal adaptogens that are targeted to calm the spirit by reducing the harmful effects of stress. The Protocol also includes simple lifestyle changes such as meditation, tai chi, and a healthy diet. Following the principles of Oriental Medicine, calming the spirit will lead to compassion and happiness in your career, your relationships, and your life.
Session: 01 Hour
Anti-Aging & Longevity – Building Essence According to Oriental Medicine, the Kidney’s are responsible for maintaining our Essence, or life force energy, and slowing down its depletion. Our Essence or life force energy consists of Qi, blood, yin, and yang. These elements are regarded as the most important influences on the aging process. Poor nutrition, poor absorption, an unhealthy diet, not enough sleep, working too many hours, chronic illness, certain medications and stored toxins are all contributing factors that can begin to rapidly deplete our Essence, creating such symptoms as bone an hair loss, immune deficiencies, malnutrition, sagging and wrinkling skin, infertility, low sex drive, fatigue, and memory loss. The Anti-Aging & Longevity Wellness Protocol introduces certain nutrients, herbs, exercises and a healthy diet, which assists the process of regeneration by building Qi, Blood, Yin, and Yang – Essence. Applying the principles of Oriental Medicine, one can say that Strengthening and preserving our Essence is the key to anti-aging and longevity.
