The picture shows herbal powders I am blending into capsules for a patient presenting with, among other things, type 2 diabetes. One of the benefits of this blend, as part of a wider holistic treatment, has been a fairly consistent and healthy degree of weight loss over the last month. Obesity is an important consideration in the balancing of patients presenting conditions like type 2 diabetes, but in itself can be a symptom of other imbalances. An investigation into diet, lifestyle and emotional conflicts is important. It is my experience that an unresolved emotional conflict can often be the catalyst to a decline in many of these other areas that support good health.
