Elkridge, MD, May 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- An exciting new three week diet and exercise program fusing Chinese Medicine principles and scientific research officially launched on May 16th. Creator of the cleanse, Jennifer ("Jen") Yocum, M.A., M.Ac., L.Ac., is a licensed acupuncturist in Maryland, and a behavioral neuroscientist. "It's really exciting, because I was able to join my Western and Eastern medicine training into one easy to follow diet program. It's the best of both worlds," stated Jen.
Designed largely for the average American following the standard diet, the cleanse is beneficial for trimming weight. A small group of 14 participants were run through the program and out of those, 12 reported weight loss. Symptoms some participants saw lessen include low energy, stomach issues, acid reflux, foggy thinking, depressed thoughts, bloating, gas, fatigue, painful and/or heavy menstrual periods, numbness and tingling in the extremities, sluggishness, and joint pain. The cleanse works by limiting inflammatory and bloating foods, such as wheat, dairy, and sugar. "You can still have your cake and eat it too... just once a week instead of every day. Who wants to live a life without brownies?" Jen remarked. Professing to have a sweet tooth herself, Jen said that it was actually cutting soda out of her diet and limiting her sugar intake two years ago that had a dramatic impact on her weight. She lost weight, and realized that sugar had been fueling a lot of her hunger. This insight served as a catalyst for modifying her diet, and when she integrated nutritional principles from Chinese Medicine that she had learned and studied in her acupuncture training, she knew she had a winning combination.
Inspired by other 21 day programs on the market, she decided to bring her dietary recommendations to the mainstream to help people establish healthy lifestyle changes.
"It is said that it takes 21 days to reinforce positive lifestyle changes. I want people to be able to keep up these changes forever, so their symptoms lessen and stay that way. Some people have modified the cleanse recommendations slightly to add back in some of the limited foods in moderation and this has also proven successful. What I am most wanting to create is a community of aware people, who are taking an active role in their health," said Jen.
The preliminary results of reported weight loss and lessening of symptoms are very encouraging. "I want to do all I can to help people, and I get a lot of joy out of partnering with them on this wellness journey. I'm there to encourage them every step of the way, to give suggestions, and to watch them transform. It's really an honor," Jen commented.
