According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM ), the root of excess weight is an imbalance within the body caused by malfunctioning of the spleen and liver organ systems. Acupuncture with TCM can make it easier to deal with stress, frustration, and anxiety that can trigger over-eating and bingeing on fattening foods.
Endorphins also affect the digestive and hormonal systems so acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems. Some people may not initially choose the more natural, effective weight loss programme but instead try drugs or fad diets, a practice which is often counter-productive. The problem may well be that after years of impaired digestion, their metabolism may simply not be functioning as well as it should.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs may be used to stimulate the metabolism, dissolve fatty accumulations, regulate the appetite and strengthen the digestive system. TCM gets to the root of the problem, brings the body back into balance and allows the body to heal itself. Why not pop into Care & Cure for a free consultation or phone 086 215 9282 for more details.
