It's Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature
Thursday, September 13, 2018
I have one more acupuncture session left at the end of September, and my treatments have been a huge factor in my hip sprain and plantar healing. That said, at my last session, I asked my doc if I had correctly found two acupressure points, from my research, that suppressed appetite.
My doc said no. And then went on to give me a brief opinion. She feels that it is not healthy to suppress appetite as hunger is a tool that our body uses to signal the need for food. She believes that a person should learn healthy eating rather than do anything that suppresses hunger. I've read the same for coughing, when ill. That the body being suppressed leads to other possible problems as we cough for a reason.
I'm back to my regular walks and am thrilled - on one hand. But on the other hand, I became lazy during the time I had to give up walking. Getting back to it has been as much psychological adjustment as well as physical, even for someone like me who loves it. Since I've been walking again, I've given myself a short break from the gym exercise classes. Back to them tomorrow.
The bottom line here is that I can become very lazy, very fast. Sad, but true. Hope all stay safe during the incoming hurricane. There's a live camera tracker, if interested. https://sportsmansparadiseonli
