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

1. Starvation

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.

2. Purging

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.

Our Program

Plan A:  Combination of acupuncture, ear seeds, and herbal tea. This 3-month program will:

How it works:

After the initial consultation, we customize a treatment plan based on your body’s conditions

Herbal medicine and acupuncture increase gastrointestinal motility, speed up metabolism and burn fat

Ear seed/pin is a small magnet placed on the ear that is squeezed every time you feel hungry. It helps reduce food cravings and increase metabolism

  1.  Acupuncture 2-3x/week, herbal tea or pills, and ear seeds
  2. Herbal tea or pills and herbal ear seeds/pin
  3. Herbal ear seeds/pin only

Plan B:  ZERONA®, a cold laser treatment which makes a hole on adipocyte and removes excess fat noninvasively.  More information about ZERONA® can be found under our Services section and at www.myzerona.com.

Healthy Lifestyle

While acupuncture and herbal medicine can help enhance digestive functions and suppress appetites, eating right and exercising regularly is also very important.

Lorraine Yamm, Neck Pain

“I came into the office unable to turn my neck or shoulder to the left without feeling shooting pain down my right side. I was so afraid I had pinched a nerve and would be immobile for months. 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 Dr. Liu.”

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. How could this tiny needle make the pain go away? But IT WORKS! After the first treatment, I felt no pain.  With only three treatments I am PAIN-FREE.”

Michael De Leon, Shoulder Pain

“I came to Dr. Liu with left shoulder pain and numbness on my left index finger. Through his knowledge of Chinese medicine and acupuncture he took the time to explain to me where my injury was located. Within the completion of my first session of acupuncture, I felt results immediately. The pain was less and the numbness to my index finger had resolved and I have finally had a good night’s rest. I look forward to completing the rest of my acupuncture sessions as recommended. I would highly recommend Dr. Liu to anyone. He is a true professional and kind and gentle soul.”
