Balancing Your Body for Sustainable Weight Loss

Obesity refers to a condition where the body's fatty tissue exceeds normal levels. It is a chronic metabolic disease that can lead to many health issues, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, fatty liver, and more. The causes of obesity are multifaceted, including improper diet, lack of exercise, genetics, and other factors.

When a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner assesses a person's constitution, they may consider multiple aspects, including body shape, digestive system, emotions, and behavior habits. The following are some common characteristics of obesity from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine:
  1. Damp-heat constitution: Individuals with damp-heat constitution may have problems with indigestion, thirst, halitosis, mouth ulcers, and other issues. They often have a preference for oily, spicy, and sweet foods that can cause dampness and heat in the body, leading to weight gain.

  2. Phlegm-damp constitution: People with a phlegm-damp constitution often have poor appetite, dry mouth, fatigue, and slow thinking. They may eat too much and exercise too little, resulting in poor metabolism and the formation of phlegm-dampness, which can cause obesity.

  3. Qi stagnation constitution: Individuals with a qi stagnation constitution may experience low mood, irritability, insomnia, and other issues. They may overeat to relieve their emotions, leading to weight gain.

  4. Yang deficiency constitution: People with a yang deficiency constitution may have sore and weak waist and knees, cold hands and feet, and pale complexion. They often lack exercise, resulting in muscle relaxation and affecting metabolism, leading to weight gain.

  5. Blood stasis constitution: Individuals with a blood stasis constitution may experience irregular menstrual periods, pain, dull skin, and other problems. They often have irregular eating habits and lack exercise, leading to poor circulation in the body, forming blood stasis, and causing obesity.


Obesity has various negative effects on the body, including but not limited to:
  1. Cardiovascular disease: Obesity increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and stroke.

  2. Diabetes: Obesity is one of the main risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

  3. Respiratory problems: Obesity can lead to respiratory problems such as difficulty breathing, sleep apnea, and asthma.

  4. Joint problems: Obesity increases the risk of bone and joint diseases such as osteoarthritis.

  5. Digestive system problems: Obesity may lead to digestive system problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gallbladder disease, and fatty liver disease.

  6. Mental health problems: Obesity may also have an impact on personal mental health such as low self-esteem, social withdrawal, and depression.

  7. Others: Obesity may also increase the risk of various health problems such as cancer, infertility, and skin diseases.

Therefore, maintaining a healthy weight and overall physical health is crucial.


Traditional Chinese medicine treatment for obesity mainly includes the following aspects:
  • Dietary adjustments: Traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes the nature, temperature, and five elements of food, and suggests adjusting the diet according to individual body constitution and condition, such as eating more vegetables and fruits, reducing high-calorie and excessively oily foods.

  • Herbal medicine: Herbal medicine can regulate the balance of yin and yang in the body, promote metabolism, and achieve weight loss effects. Specific formulas need to be adjusted based on individual body constitution and condition, such as using herbal formulas to tonify the spleen, promote diuresis, dry dampness, remove fat, moisturize the intestines, and promote bowel movements.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture stimulates specific acupoints to regulate the balance of qi and blood in the body, improve metabolism, and help reduce body weight. Common acupoints used include Zusanli, Guanyuan, and Shenque.

  • Tuina massage: Massaging the abdomen, waist, hips and other areas can stimulate the circulation of qi and blood and meridians in the body, promote metabolism, improve physical fitness, and help reduce body weight.

  • Magnetic Slimming Therapy: Using targeted acupoint positioning technology to reach fat cells and hydrolyze fat, this therapy unblocks acupoints, removes dampness and fat, and promotes healthy weight loss. Obesity is mainly caused by excessive dampness in the body and blockage of the meridians. The primary effect of the therapy is to remove dampness and toxins from the body and unblock the meridians.
