Oriental Medicine for Weight Management

5 Comments

In Oriental medicine the root of excess weight is an imbalance within the body caused by malfunctioning of the spleen and liver organ systems. A combination of auricular (ear) and body acupuncture points, as well as foods and herbs selected to assist with weight loss can directly influence the Qi of the spleen and liver systems and treat the imbalances that have caused weight gain.

The spleen is responsible for the proper functioning of the digestive system, ensuring that the food we eat is transformed into Qi, the vital substance of life. Disharmony of the spleen will result in symptoms such as fatigue, slow metabolism, water retention, loose stool and a feeling of heaviness.

The liver’s job is to keep the flow of your body’s Qi, blood and emotions running smoothly. Our modern, fast-paced lifestyle and chronic stress can negatively impact the liver’s ability to function properly and smoothly, which, in turn, can cause the spleen and the entire digestive system to function poorly. One result can be a decrease in your metabolism. Liver disharmony can also cause some of the “triggers” that lead to cravings and compulsive eating.

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have been shown to have positive effects on the functioning of the nervous, endocrine and digestive systems. They provide a comprehensive therapy for weight issues that promote better digestion, balance emotions, reduce appetite, improve metabolism and eliminate food cravings.

  1. Hi there, I believe your site could be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, if opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic website!

  2. Thanks for bringing this up! I’ve tried opening in I.E. on my computer, I didn’t see the issue you described. So I don’t get duplicate. Further possible advice?

  3. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found
    that it is truly informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.

    I will be grateful if you continue this in future.
    Lots of people will be benefited from your writing.
    Cheers!
