Chinese Medicine and Weight Loss

Posted by on Mon, Aug 05, 2013

I am frequently asked: “Can Chinese Medicine help me lose weight?”

The short answer is “YES!”  but the true answer is much more involved and requires several more questions in order to decide how to best go about the weight loss.

I have seen Chinese medicine be an effective “assistant” to weight loss and weight maintenance but how do we go about finding out why there is a weight issue to begin with?

Weight Loss is Multi-Faceted

There are several factors when considering a weight loss plan that need to be discussed.  For example, is the weight gain due to poor dietary and exercise habits?  Is there a metabolic function issue that needs to be addressed? Are there psychological factors contributing to the inability to lose weight? Is there a hormonal piece?  Thyroid…gut mobility/absorption….?

Oh boy.   As you can see, there are many reasons why a person gains weight and, as such, there are many techniques to help lose that weight.
