Weight loss Care
When it comes to weight loss, the most important difference between Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Medicine is that Chinese medicine does not espouse the theory that there is a one-size-fits-all solution.
As acupuncture and Chinese medicine has become more popular, there have been studies done on the effectiveness of acupuncture.
There have been some studies performed looking at the treatment of obesity with acupuncture.
One study demonstrated the effectiveness of electro-acupuncture for weight loss.
There were 54 patients separated into two groups; one doing sit-ups and the other doing electro-acupuncture. The study lasted 13 weeks. The acupuncture points used were Ren 6, Ren 9, St 28, KD 14, St 26, St 40, and SP 6. The electrical stimulator was connected on the points on the abdomen. The results of the study showed that acupuncture was more effective than doing sit up exercise.
Another study used auricular acupuncture for weight loss. The study was done using bilateral auricular acupuncture points with electrical stimulation. There were 55 patients studied and 63.6 percent showed a decrease of body weight.
Besides acupuncture and herbal medicine, individuals must also exercise and practice correct dietary guidelines. Acupuncture and herbal medicine combined with exercise and food therapy can greatly enhance the treatment of obesity and help individuals mange their weight. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is an effective treatment for overweight and obesity.
