In today’s society the convenience of options are on the rise to cater for our busy lives however we often don’t realise how harmful they can be for our health. Many people will find that eating healthily can be either difficult or done incorrectly.
You may find yourself saying the following:
- “I’m too tired”
- “I don’t have time to make food”
- “I’ll just get takeout because it’s easier”
- “I feel so bloated”
- “I don’t have the energy to do anything”
- “I don’t have time to exercise”
THE COMMON CAUSES OF WEIGHT GAIN
- A unhealthy lifestyle and unhealthy habits.
- Other health conditions that causes weight gain or difficulty in losing weight.
- Medications that causes weight gain as a side effect.
People who try to lose weight many times can often find it discouraging when they are not achieving their the desired result. It is very common to hear, “I’ve tried so many methods and nothing works!”
SO HOW CAN TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE HELP YOU?
It all starts with the consultation. You’ll be asked questions in relation to your health in order for the most suitable treatment protocol to be developed. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system which includes a range of treatments such as Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Together, they can help make a positive change to your health. As you start to feel better on the inside, you begin to choose better habits for your lifestyle. The treatment strategy will aim to strengthen and restore harmony within your body in order for them to progressively function at an optimal level again.
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPECT AND HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE?
Small changes make all the difference. You will find improvements in your energy levels, sleep and quality of life. This may occur instantly or after a period of time, it is entirely based on the extent of what your body has been through and how quickly it can respond. As your health is improving, you will start to feel lighter and even begin to lose weight.
You must REMEMBER that TCM helps improve your overall health, it’s not just focused on weight loss only; that would be similar to ‘putting a band aid on a deep wound’ – it would not be effective at all in the long term.
