If you are like me then you likely have tried anything and everything to lose weight. Some of these things work and others don’t but we all have tried them at one point or another. The good news is that Chinese medicine seems to be working to help folks lose weight and keep it off!
I will be honest with you and tell you up front that even in Chinese medicine, one of the keys to losing weight and keeping it off is regular exercise. If you thought you were going to get around that this time, sorry to disappoint you. Exercise is essential to helping any weight loss system work like it is suppose to.
When you go to see a doctor that practices Chinese medicine for weight loss, the first thing they are going to do to help you is to analyze your metabolism. Once the doctor can figure out why your metabolism is working slowly then and only then will they be able to help you. They may choose to use acupuncture or they may choose to use moxibustion and even diet modifications.
In Chinese medicine weight loss is focused on the spleen. The spleen directly affects the bodies flesh, muscles and transformation of fluids. Once the spleen gets damaged by a person eating too much fat, the person becomes heavier. The methods I mentioned in the above paragraph can help your spleen to work as it should after it has been damaged.
Your Chinese medicine regimen is most likely going to include some herbs for weight loss as well. Some of the best ones for losing weight are Shan Za, Zhi Ke, and Sheng Jiang. Your doctor will find the right herb for you.
