Transform September 17 2014

To change, especially to correct the metabolism of water, ie edema.

 

SCIENCE

Puffiness is water in the body that is remaining where it should not (under the skin, in the tissue). To transform it means to encourage it back into the circulation so it is used where it is needed, not pooled where it is creating imbalance.

HISTORY

Because movement is needed to effect transforming action, many herbals that have this action are quite Yang in nature.
