Garcinia cambogia extract – a Southeast Asian weight-loss...

Hey everyone! Hopefully you're interested in the world of plants and herbal remedies, because wow, do they hold a lot of promise. Nearly every medicine known to mankind originally came from a single plant or a mixture of them, pounded together, boiled, and drunk or prepared and imbibed in some other way. The short of it is, there are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of medicinal plants out there whose properties scientists have barely begun to explore, if they've started it at all. But there's a different source of knowledge, one that simply doesn't do for science, but that every one of us “normal people” should pay attention to. That is traditional knowledge and herbalism, which most people around the world practice. Unfortunately, Western medicine is often quite categorical and strict in a way that shuts out much traditional medicine practice. Western medicine requires details and specifics of what molecules and chemicals give the beneficial effect, and in reducing it all down to one compound, pretty much ignore the complex interactions that form the basis of traditional medical preparations. So I've been doing research on the topic, trying to educate myself on little-known traditional medicines and weight-loss aids – that is something that is important for me in my life right now. ;) Have you heard about garcinia cambogia? Do you know anything about it? I came across the info about it here, from a place called Investigative Reviews. Basically, what the garcinia apparently does, is that it both helps to burn fat as well as slowing down the speed at which the body absorbs new fat. So it's kind of like a two-pronged approach, you know? In traditional cultures, it is used as a purgative – that is, a detox food. What a lot of people write about traditional herbal medicines is that they're slower-acting than the pills produced by the pharmacological industry, but also much less “sharp” - with less (potentially health-wrecking) side effects, and a gentler effect on the body. I've been burned a few times with really chemical, terrible weight-loss pills that just put me on a crash diet, that left me worse off than when I started. So I think I'm done with that, and want to focus on natural stuff. Do any of you have any experience with garcinia cambogia? It's still quite new, so I'm not sure what to make of it, but apparently a lot of people have had a good experience with it. :) A Southeast Asian weight loss secret – http://www.prnewsw ire.com/news-relea ses/garcinia-cambo gia-extract---cruc ial-data-released- 231403591.html  (Mar 28, 2014 | post #1)

Yep! If a guy's tired, hungry, uncomfortable, stressed, or has his mind on other things.... might not happen. You can't snap your fingers and have it pop up  (Mar 21, 2014 | post #506)

Omnipod pods - OLD style

It doesn't seem like this is a great place for selling items. I keep seeing posts where someone has something available, someone asks about it months later, then the seller replies a month later and then nothing...  (Mar 21, 2014 | post #3)

Yeah, it doesn't seem like something I'd want to take, with that laundry list of side effects.  (Mar 21, 2014 | post #3)
