Weight Loss and Management in Chinese Medicine
A major concern in today’s world is weight loss. Many people become depressed and feel immense stress for this reason. Excess weight and obesity are medical conditions that increase the following risks.
Popular Methods & Side Effects
This method can cause malnutrition and loss of glow and elasticity of hair and skin. More importantly, it can decrease metabolism. Once eating begins again, the body cannot easily process excessive carbs, which will result in more fat.
This method can lead to acid reflux. The esophagus can also suffer from damage and result in future eating disorders.
3. Eliminating fat from the diet
Fat in foods is not completely bad. The human body needs fat to maintain normal organ structure and supply energy. Complete elimination of fat can cause constipation.
4. Fruit diet instead of staple food
Eating fruits alone and nothing else can cause nutritional imbalances. Our body needs proteins, iron and other minerals from a variety of foods to function normally.

Within 45 minutes, the pain was gone and I could move my neck and shoulder again. The acupuncture treatment was so effective! Dr. Liu located an acupuncture spot in my right hand that was connecting to my neck, shoulders and back. It was like magic! He massaged the point on my right hand, and the remainder of the pain was released. Thank you
Raisha Liriano, Back Pain
“I was suffering from the worst back pain ever! I couldn’t stand for long, I couldn’t sit for long. Even lying down was painful. I decided to try Acupuncture. I have to admit I was skeptical.
