Mi padre era endocrino y cuando tenía ocho años ya sabía lo que eran las proteínas, las vitaminas... y me involucró mucho en sus cosas... y le decía a sus pacientes: "Ayúdese con rábanos, con zanahorias" y conseguía que muchos pacientes con sobrepeso en lugar de ponerse un trozo de pan, se comieran una zanahoria o un rábano para evitar caer altas ingestas de pan, rico en almidón que se convierte en azúcar.

What we call medicinal plants are among the primary agents by which erring humans are brought back into the ecosystemic fold. They can help bring our own disordered ecologies of body, mind, will, emotions, and social relations into entrainment with their own internal ecologies (their constituents or energetic architecture), which resonate with successively larger and more organized eco-systems. Plants can thereby pull us into harmonic relations with the metabolic functionings of the planet. The planet thereby teaches via the conditions of its healthy functioning. This dharma upwells through the plants and into the understandings and practices of those who are “listening.” It has inspired and guided the world’s great herbalist traditions. Herbalism in its most perennial forms has internalized this dharma and applied it to the microcosm of the human body to understand states of well-being and to treat illness.
While dieting, the dietero will have an austere and plain food diet, without salt or sugar. They will only eat green parboiled plantains (inguiris), oats, or rice. The dietero cannot be seen by another person, only by the healer, who will give them the preparation of the plant being dieted and will prepare and carry their food. During the diet, they will be in isolation from any personal relationships, but not of sensory stimuli, since one is in the jungle, in contact with the song of the birds, the vegetation, and the sound of the river.
La sibutramina actúa disminuyendo el hambre y haciendo con que la sensación de saciedad llegue más rápido al cerebro, ayudando a controlar la cantidad de comida ingerida. De esta forma, este medicamento puede ser usado como primer tratamiento en personas con obesidad. Cabe acotar que en algunos países de América Latina su uso ha sido restringido, debido a sus efectos secundarios.
