Weight loss treatment
Weight loss is a difficult subject for many people. There are many reasons why some people cannot seem to keep the weight off and end up in a yo-yo situation which goes on for years. Not only is this a futile waste of effort it is also extremely bad for your health long term as it puts pressure on all the organs and particularly the heart.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used safely alongside western nutrition and exercise to help you to lose weight.
How does weight loss treatment work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic medicine which treats you as a complete person and not just the parts of you that require treatment. An initial consultation will take up to two hours so that all your medical history can be taken into account when treating you.
When you have weight loss treatment any other problems you have will be treated at the same time. This is important in order to create the smooth flow of Qi and a healthy body so that all the tissues are nourished. A healthy body and the smooth flow of Qi will allow your body to stabilise so that your metabolism works correctly.
What are the benefits?
You will find that any health problems you had will start to clear up and you will feel healthier and happier. Traditional Chinese Medicine also treats the emotions. If you have been struggling with any problems these may have been having an effect on your metabolism.
You may also have food intolerances or allergies which have been wreaking havoc causing such things as bloating and fluid retention, headaches, low energy and tiredness for example. How many of the following list of items can you say yes to?
- IBS and diarrhoea
- Eczema and other skin conditions
- Asthma and wheezing
- Headaches and migraine
- Depression and stress
- Insomnia and tiredness
If you can say yes to any of these then you are most likely suffering from food intolerance or allergies.
What does the treatment involve?
Treatment involves an holistic approach:
- Acupuncture. You will receive acupuncture in the first instance. This will help to stabilise your metabolism, stop food cravings and address any other health problems that you may have.
- Allergy Elimination. You may also wish to eliminate your allergies with NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques). NAET addresses the energetic properties of substances that cause a problem to the smooth flow of Qi in the meridians. When we come across a substance that interferes with the smooth flow of Qi this is called an adverse reaction or allergic reaction. The immune systems goes into action to deal with the invader. When we constantly come across the same invader toxins can build up in the body. This eventually causes illness to occur. NAET works to eliminate this response by sending a message to the brain to recognise the allergen as friendly rather than the enemy.
- Exercise programme
- Emotional stress release and counselling for emotional problems
You will find that any long standing health problems you had will start clearing up. It may be that these problems have had an effect on your metabolism. Many people who clear their food allergies start to lose weight once the effect of those trigger foods have been eliminated.
How long will it take me to lose weight?
This is a difficult question to answer since we are all unique and it depends very much on what the problem is that is causing you to hold on to your weight.
What usually happens is that after the first acupuncture treatment you start to feel less hungry in between meals and some of the food cravings you had will disappear. For example you may find that after a few days that bar of chocolate you used to eat every day is still on the kitchen side and has not been touched. This will really shock and surprise you. It is small changes like this that you will notice at first rather than a sudden weight loss. Also you may feel happier and be sleeping better and feel much more energised.
When you continue with regular treatments your weight will then start to drop slowly and regularly as your metabolism stabilises and you start to eat the right foods for your body. You will feel like exercising more and be motivated to keep to the new regime.
NAET treatment for your allergies will also help you to lose weight and is highly recommended as part of the programme.
Will I be able to keep my weight stable?
Yes, provided you have followed the programme, once you reach your target weight you can return for a regular check up free of charge. If there are new problems that have developed then you should return for more treatments.
