Drink this to shed the pounds Puerh Tea Pu-erh Tea is a Chinese Cholesterol Remedy and Overall Health Tonic Saturday, August 01, 2009 by: Zephyr Faegen (NaturalNews) Pu-erh Tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for generations to inhibit "internal dampness" (a term used in Chinese medicine to describe a build up of internal energy due to the spleen`s inability to transform energy that it receives from the stomach) and to invigorate the activity of the spleen and stomach. Other traditional uses include the removal of toxins from the body, curing dysentery, weight loss, improving eyesight, promoting blood circulation and reviving those who have over indulged in alcohol. More recently, researchers have taken interest in Pu-erh tea for its ability to reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, protect connective tissue, and its ability to attack free radicals within the body. In multiple studies done in several countries, Pu-erh tea has shown significant success in reducing blood cholesterol. One study done at the Wun- Shan Branch Tea Research and Extension Station in Taipei, Taiwan compared the effects of green, black, oolong, and cooked/black Pu-erh teas on cholesterol in rats. The study showed the rats fed the cooked Pu-erh tea leaves had an increase of HDL-C (good cholesterol) and a decrease in LDL-C (bad cholesterol) where the rats given the other teas had varying decreases in both types. This means that with Pu-erh tea you get the best of both worlds, an increase in the cholesterol that you do want and a decrease of the cholesterol that you don`t.

Are mice smarter than men? Fitness and exercise In a 2009 study, scientists made two groups of mice swim a water maze, and then in a separate trial subjected them to an unpleasant stimulus to see how quickly they would learn to move away from it. Then, over the next four weeks they allowed one group of mice to run inside their rodent wheels, an activity most mice enjoy, while they forced the other group to work harder on minitreadmills at a speed and duration controlled by the scientists. They then tested both groups again to track their learning skills and memory. Both groups of mice improved their performances in the water maze from the earlier trial. But only the extra-worked treadmill runners were better in the avoidance task, a skill that, according to neuroscientists, demands a more complicated cognitive response.   The mice who were forced to run on the treadmills showed evidence of molecular changes in several portions of their brains when viewed under a microscope, while the voluntary wheel-runners had changes in only one area. "Our results support the notion that different forms of exercise induce neuroplasticity changes in different brain regions," Chauying J. Jen, a professor of physiology and an author of the study, said.   There is an easier way!

Theory Behind Qigong Weight Reduction Regardless of the cause of the overweight, the end result is the same: the accumulation of fat somewhere in the body. Therefore, weight reduction requires the removal of the excess fat from the body. The Chi Kung exercises described in this program are suitable for losing weight gained for whatever reason--overeating, inadequate exercise, low metabolism, hormonal problems, etc. However, it is important for those suffering from underlying diseases to receive proper medical treatment for them in addition to doing these exercises. According to our records, by practicing the Chi Kung exercises discussed in this book, a number of patients not only brought their weight under control, but they even succeeded in improving their underlying overweight- producing diseases.
Statistical Data Three months observation after the program Table 13 shows that no regaining of weight was observed three months after the program.
