You have to keep in mind that it is not a quick fix, but rather a series of mindful, gradual choices that help build a new foundation for the body.
The healing effect of Acupuncture is through helping you gain more energy, reducing stress and stress-related hormone levels, improving the metabolism and absorption of nutrients, lowering the appetite and cravings. While using Oriental Medicine to aid in weight loss, you are still advised to have healthy eating habits, as well as to keep active.
Another important factor to consider when trying to lose weight is eating right for your constitution. Not all of our genetic make-up and body types are the same. According to Chinese medicine, each body type has its unique intelligence and needs different foods, types of activity, and sleep patterns in order to stay in balance. Eating lots of raw, cold foods might work for some, while other body constitutions strive when adding warming foods and spices.
Thus, considering our unique qualities is crucial when trying to make positive changes towards a healthier self. In a course of treatment, we provide Acupuncture, sometimes combined with electro-Acupuncture, Auricular medicine, Moxibustion, and dietary and/ or supplementation advice for you. Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal formulas can also be used if required.
By achieving balance and taking charge of your health, you can enjoy the fulfillment that comes with it.
