Successful long-term weight loss can be difficult to achieve. Many people have tried diets and later regained the weight they lost, plus some additional pounds.
According to traditional Chinese medicine healthy body mass equals sufficient qi (energy ) moving through the body system. If there is not enough qi, or the energy becomes blocked in the spleen, stomach, or liver, then weight gain results. TCM maintains that when your flow of qi is strong and your body is in balance, weight problems will naturally disappear and a healthy weight can easily be maintained.
For example a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help you to boost your metabolism, increase circulation, reduce cravings, suppress appetite, and improve bowel movements.
Most people report a market decline in appetite and cravings with acupuncture alone, but herbs can definitely enhance the effectiveness of weight loss treatment.
The benefit of using traditional Chinese medicine for weight loss is that, unlike other medications, there are no harmful side effects and no chance of addiction.
