Ask Dr. Orloff

How to help a someone who is overweight?

Question: I have been coaching a lady for a while now. She runs her own business and is extremely successful. It appears we have everything right except for one thing - her weight! She is grossly overweight. She has tried diets etc. to no avail. We cannot seem to get past this 'block'. What lesson is her weight issue teaching her?
Thank you.

Answer: People sometimes put on weight because they are buffering themselves from negative energy. You need to teach your client how to cope without taking on the vibes of others. See if this applies to her. My chapter on Centering and Protection in my book Intuitive Healing will be very helpful for you and her. It discusses everything from shielding to meditations for grounding. You are a very sensitive healer to ask this question.
