Acupuncture is a common method of treating people with an overweight condition in China. The claims for success rate exceed 90% and clinics in China boast of huge weight losses with their patients.
The traditional Chinese theory behind using acupuncture for weight loss holds that like many other symptoms, an overweight condition signals that there are problems within the body. An overweight condition is most often caused by an imbalance in the body, typically in the digestive system. Through the application of acupuncture and herbal therapies the digestive, and other critical systems can be brought back into balance and the patient will lose weight naturally.
When the digestive system is functioning properly the nutrients in the foods we eat become more bio-available and the patient feels naturally fuller, reducing cravings and the desire to over eat.
