There are a few considerations that need to be addressed when undertaking a weight loss regimen. Namely, the underlying cause/s of why the additional weight has been able to accumulate, and the mechanisms associated with preventing the body from metabolising and shifting this additional weight.

Commonly weight gain is associated with one or a combination of the following factors; Poor dietary habits (over consumption and irregular eating habits), leading a sedentary lifestyle (energy intake vs. expenditure), being an emotional eater (commonly a stress response), and the link with a deeper and more complex hormonal imbalance within the body.


Addressing weight gain can have a variety of positive effects upon reducing any associated health risks. Namely, protecting the body’s internal organs from strain, over-use and decline in function, reducing the likelihood of developing weight associated diseases such as Hypertension and Diabetes, and reducing pain in individuals with weight associated joint dysfunction.

Excess weight may also hamper ones ability to lead a normal and active existence, due to weight becoming an inhibiting factor in daily life. Perpetuating the likelihood of many associated mood disorders.

Healthy Weight-loss is the result of ones efforts to improve their daily lives by addressing their inner-health through the shedding of any unwanted additional weight.

Weight loss treatment involves undertaking regular Chinese medicine treatments (weekly/fortnightly), with the addition of concurrent herbal medicines; specifically tailored to suit the individual and to aid and bolster the treatment regimen. Lastly dietary and lifestyle changes will be addressed and a nutrition plan will be undertaken to help aid the individual’s specific requirements, to compliment their unique constitution.

Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle changes are the leading ways to attain this change. If you would like further information on what this involves, please contact us here at Freedom Chinese Medicine in Ivanhoe
