China has long been known for having a population that was almost devoid of overweight citizens. Now with the advent of modern fast food infiltrating their society, things are changing.
If you visit China, you might be shocked at how many KFC’s and McDonald’s there are now. And if you go inside any of these fast food restaurants you’ll find dozens of teenagers. With China’s recent economic rise, some Chinese have changed their lifestyle and eating habits for the worse. Some Chinese parents have checked in their overweight teenagers into the Aimin Fat Reduction Clinic in Tianjin in northern China.
The Aimin hospital specializes in treating weight loss with TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine)– acupuncture, herbal medicine and diet. They also encourage exercise such as swimming, badminton and basketball. According Dr. Shu Li Dong, director of Aimin hospital, the goal is to not only lose weight but help patients learn a healthy lifestyle to prevent gaining the weight back in the future.
Even some people from the US have flown to the other side of the world to get to this innovative weight loss clinic. But truth be told you don’t have to fly all the way over to China to loose weight with acupuncture. At our Minneapolis clinic we treat weight loss naturally daily.
The Acupuncture Weight Control is effective in making it easier to lose weight and maintain that loss.
Here’s how it works:
• Reduces hunger and food cravings so you can lose weight.
• Allows your body to take in less fat from the food you eat.
• Feel full so you can eat less.
• Eases the frustration and anxiety that triggers overeating.
Just read this testimonial from one satisfied acupuncture patient:
“The MOST amazing thing for me is…for the last FOUR weeks, I have not been binge eating! I had been binge eating for months and months, maybe years! This is something I really didn’t think I could stop! I also have not been eating after 8:00 at night! I usually graze with a junk food feedbag on from 8:00 – 10:00 at night! This was really quite spectacular for me! That’s a lot but wait…there’s more! I also have stopped drinking coffee and I haven’t had any sugar or sweets! Four weeks! That’s pretty much a miracle in my world! So…one would have to think that just MAYBE there IS truth to the fact that acupuncture can help you lose weight! I am a BELEIVER!
Did I mention that I haven’t had any cakes, cookies, donuts, ice cream or various heavenly delights? Even grocery shopping, I usually am compelled to purchase some yummy thing I see on display and I have been able to pass by my usual triggers!
I should tell you that part of the weight loss acupuncture stimulation is to help curb your appetite. It also helps with cravings! I wouldn’t have believed it, not a chance with me…but I’m winning more battles against my favorite non-healthy food choices than I ever thought possible!” J. Coulton, one delighted, continuing to slim down, acupuncture recipient!
