中醫減肥不只是減肥,是預防慢性病的開始。

香港註冊中醫師 游心慈

在臨床上常見到年齡超過35歲的人群,不論男或女,每天都承受著很多的壓力,身體出現疼痛疲勞、走路容易喘、胸悶頭痛、睡眠品質不佳,經常忙到吃不下或太晚吃東西,導致體重持續增加,大量的脂肪囤積在腹部與大腿外側,行動上經常感覺到肌肉無力及緊繃,這就是常見的的「過勞型肥胖」。當心肺功能不足,導致全身的氣機無法正常推動,就像道路堆滿了垃圾無法暢通,當垃圾無法排除,就像是身體堆積了多餘的脂肪、水液體,同時導致血液濁度增加,久而久之造成了代謝、免疫及心血管疾病等發生。

過勞型的肥胖有以常見是過度消耗心力,心肺之氣不足所導致水液代謝失去平衡,出現水腫的“虛胖”,也有過勞導致睡眠不足,肝臟解毒功能下降,造成的肥胖,透過強化心肺功能,和調節肝臟系統,使身體自行排除垃圾的能力提升。另外還有一種是脾胃陽氣不足,出現胃口差、食慾不振、大便不順或進食後較短的時間內就會想上廁所、容易有腹瀉,臨床上會強化腸胃功能,調補針灸、中藥和艾灸提升脾胃陽氣。而當脾胃陽氣功能下降時,也容易導致體內的水液分配不均勻,讓人感到口渴,需要飲用更多的湯水,也就導致身體形成多餘和無法代謝的水分,使的身體變得水腫、沈重、腹部和小腿逐漸變形,同時體力下降。

中醫改善肥胖的核心理念是透過平衡體內陽陰,以提升能量、調節體溫、促進脂肪代謝,達到中醫治療減肥的重要環節“增進代謝”。

中醫認為每個人的體質都是獨一無二的,因此針對個體體質的差異擬定治療方案是中醫減重的重要原則之一。

中醫通過辨證施治,針對不同體質的人提供個性化的治療方案,包括草藥應用、針灸選穴,同時達到身心健康的逐步平衡。

關於中草藥的應用:

每種中草藥都有其獨特的特性和療效,醫師根據每個人的體質和減重目標選出合適的草藥。

體內濕熱過盛的人群,可選用清除濕熱的草本,例如生薏仁,例如;體質虛弱的人群,可選用滋補養身的草本,例如:黃耆。 

同時適當的飲食結構和食療可幫助我們調節體質,促進新陳代謝,加速減重的效果。

關於針灸 :

耳穴治療是來自中醫的全息理論,依據個體的差異性,選擇穴位,調節食慾、控制飲食、促進新陳代謝,當然不只是減肥,有些人也因此改善了失眠的問題。

針灸依據個體差異性,選擇針對脾胃、肝膽及腎經上的穴位,提升整體代謝能力。

中醫減重療法為減重者提供了全面而有效的解決方案,不僅是減肥,同時透過調節代謝和體質平衡,維持身心的健康。

 

 

Weight loss with traditional Chinese medicine is not just about losing weight, it is also the beginning of preventing chronic diseases.

Hong Kong registered Chinese medicine practitioner Grace Yu (Yu Hsin Tzu)

Clinically, it is common to see people over 35 years old, regardless of male or female, who are under a lot of pressure every day. They suffer from physical pain and fatigue, are easily breathless when walking, have chest tightness and headaches, and have poor sleep quality. They are often too busy forgeting or too late to eat This diet leads to continuous weight gain. A large amount of fat is accumulated in the abdomen and outer thighs. Muscles often feel weak and tight when moving. This is a common “overwork obesity”.

When the cardiopulmonary function is insufficient, the Qi of the whole body cannot move normally, just like the road is filled with garbage and cannot be smoothed. When the garbage cannot be removed, it is like the body has accumulated excess fat and water, which will also lead to an increase in blood turbidity. Over time, Caused metabolic, immune and cardiovascular diseases.

Overwork-type obesity is commonly caused by excessive consumption of mental energy and insufficient heart and lung energy, resulting in a loss of balance in water-fluid metabolism, resulting in edema and “puffiness”.

There are also cases of obesity caused by overwork leading to lack of sleep and a decrease in liver detoxification function. By strengthening cardiopulmonary function and regulating the liver system, the body’s ability to eliminate garbage on its own is improved.

In addition, there is insufficient Yang Qi in the spleen and stomach, resulting in poor appetite, loss of appetite, irregular bowel movements, or wanting to go to the toilet within a short period of time after eating, and prone to diarrhea. 

Clinically, to strengthen gastrointestinal function, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine and moxibustion are used to enhance spleen and stomach Yang Qi. When the yang function of the spleen and stomach decreases, it can easily lead to uneven distribution of water in the body, making people feel thirsty and need to drink more liquid things, which also causes the body to form excess and unable to metabolize water, making the body become edema, heaviness, gradual deformation of the abdomen and calves, and loss of physical strength.

The core concept of TCM in improving obesity is to increase energy, regulate body temperature, and promote fat metabolism by balancing yang and yin in the body, thereby achieving “enhancement of metabolism” which is an important part of TCM treatment for weight loss.

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that each person’s constitution is unique, so formulating treatment plans based on differences in individual constitutions is one of the important principles of weight loss in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Through syndrome differentiation and treatment, traditional Chinese medicine provides personalized treatment plans for people with different physical constitutions, including the application of herbal medicine and acupuncture point selection, while achieving a gradual balance of physical and mental health.

The application of Chinese herbal medicine:

Each Chinese herbal medicine has its own unique properties and effects, and doctors select the appropriate herbal medicine based on each person’s physical constitution and weight loss goals.

People with excessive dampness and heat in the body can choose herbs that can clear away dampness and heat, such as raw coix seed; people with weak constitutions can choose herbs that nourish the body, such as astragalus.

At the same time, appropriate dietary structure and dietary therapy can help us regulate our physique, promote metabolism, and accelerate weight loss.

About acupuncture:

Auricular acupuncture treatment is based on the holographic theory of traditional Chinese medicine. Based on individual differences, acupuncture points are selected to regulate appetite, control diet, and promote metabolism. Of course, it is not only for weight loss, but also improves the problem of insomnia for some people.

Acupuncture is based on individual differences and selects acupoints on the spleen, stomach, liver, gallbladder and kidney meridians to improve overall metabolic capacity.

Traditional Chinese medicine weight loss therapy provides a comprehensive and effective solution for weight loss patients. It not only loses weight, but also maintains physical and mental health by regulating metabolism and physical balance.
