Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
I’m in my early forties, and I am going through the weight gain and hormone changes that come with periomenopause. Additionally, constipation is a problem. I’ve ordered several of your products today; can I take them all at once? Are there any contraindications? What products would be best for me?
A: Thank you for purchasing my products. In general, my supplements are not harmful or contraindicated. Not knowing exactly what you have purchased, I would suggest that you take the tonifying products (elixirs) in the evening. Take the clearing or activating products during the day or in the morning. Our elixirs and combined five element powders are safe to take with no contraindications noted. The powders in the five element combinations will assist in cleansing your system and regulating your bowels. As for the hormonal changes and weight gain, the best product would be the “Passages Plus”. The elixirs are drops and can be placed directly under the tongue or with water so you can combine these with the pills or powders of the combination “Five Elements of Health“. Of course, you should discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
