Acupuncture for Weight Loss / Obesity / Overweight


David, G.       Real lift testimony about weight loss acupuncture treatment

       When my neighbor and some of my close friends discussed the option of acupuncture I was a bit skeptical. “ Needles and stuff on me, I don’t want to do that” was always my initial thought.  However; going to the mall to purchase my last pair of “ Fat Jeans” I decided enough was enough and I would give acupuncture a try to assist with my weight management journey.
      Like I stated initially I went into this being a pessimist, but let me tell you, 4 weeks later after following my recommended regimen, I was 30 lbs lighter.  After the first week I had to take by my fat jeans and go down 2 sizes.  Afterwards the weight just melted off.

      I would recommend Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic to anyone!  Try it once- it will make a believer out of you!

Success case-

One female patient, age around 55, has had a history of severe depression. Taking medications for depression for years. Due to the depression, the patient created her eating disorder; there was consumption of a lot of sweet foods, fast foods, and soft drinks. Patient gained 30 pounds in a year.
After taking Chinese herb treatment for one week, patient lost about 8 pounds, with no diarrhea, or use of stimulant herbs. Patient felt calmer. Concentration is great improved. Craving for sweets is gone. Automatically change diet to vegetables and water. 08/06.

In Chinese Medicine, overweight or obesity is caused by deficiency of Qi and excess of damp phlegm. When the calories taken are more than the body consumption, the extra calories accumulate and turn into fat and are stored in the body.
As recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), the standard weight = {body height (measured by centimeter) –100} x 0.9. There are two ways to measure over weight/ obesity:
1. Actual weight is 20% more than the standard weight,
2. Body mass index ( BMI ) over 24.
Simple obesity includes genetic obesity, and acquired obesity which is caused by overeating and no exercise.
Secondary obesity is causes by a hypothalamic disorder, pituitary disorder, or other hormonal disorders.

Etiology and Pathogenesis of over weight

Due to old age or genetics.
Over weight/obesity mainly related to the deficiency of Kidney Qi. The age condition or congenital obesity causes the kidney Qi deficiency. Kidney Qi is the root of the body system. When it is weak, the Qi could not help much in the body’s transformation and transportation process, therefore the retention of damp phlegm increases, showing as symptoms like edema and weight gain.

2. Due to overeating.
Overeating might damage the function of the spleen and stomach in the transporting and transformation of food and water. Therefore it results in damp phlegm – increased weight, obesity.

3. Due to lack of exercise
Exercise plays an important role in the weight problem. Lack of exercise for a long period of time will cause the deficiency of spleen Qi. Spleen Qi deficiency will cause failure to distribute the food Qi to muscle and causes damp phlegm- water retention and weight gain.

4. Due to chronic diseases.
Chronic diseases could easily cause the deficiency of Qi, blood, Yin and Yang. Qi and blood deficiency will cause the heat from Yin deficiency and result in the circulation problems. Blood stasis occurs and damp phlegm is produced, overweight / obesity shows up.

5. Due to emotional stress.
In Chinese medicine each Zang Fu (organ) has it own emotion. Excessive worry damages the lungs, excessive grief damages the liver, over thinking and over eating damages the spleen, excessive joyfulness damages the heart, excessive fear damages the kidneys.
When a patient has depression, anxiety or other emotional stress will damage the spirits of Zang Fu, and then destroy the balanced relations of the five-organ systems. Due to the emotional obstruction, it results in overeating from stress and further disables the transformation and transportation of body and food essence. Then obesity occurs.

Diagnosis of overweight/ obesity:

1. Due to Qi deficiency: the symptoms include general fatigue, palpitation, shortness of breath, spontaneous perspiration, drowsiness, and no desire to talk. Pale complexion, white tongue coating, enlarged tongue with tooth marks at the edge. A deep and thready pulse.

2. Due to damp phlegm: the symptoms include a big abdomen, heaviness of the head and limbs, some feeling of fullness in the chest. Greasy tongue coating.

3. Due to severe water and dampness retention: loose stool and edema would be accompanied.

4. Due to Zang Fu (organ) impairment:

         Lungs and heart impairment:
palpitation, shortness of breath, fatigue, spontaneous sweating, no desire to talk.

         Spleen and stomach impairment:
fat abdomen, fatigue, heaviness of limbs and head, excessive phlegm production.

         Kidney impairment:
