Natural Approach to Weight Loss

More than half of all American adults are overweight or obese, which can cause many health problems. Western methods focus on external factors, such as weight or food. Exercise and natural approaches to weight loss are important for establishing healthy habits. TCM addresses the root cause of weight conditions, which usually indicates a greater health problem. 

In order to have overall health you must have sufficient Qi and your internal organs must work in harmony. Without this balance, you will become unstable and develop energy function disorders which prevent your body from promoting the proper metabolism for releasing excess fat and water. Very often issues such as headaches, depression, and allergies can contribute to this imbalance. 

TCM advises a varied diet comprised primarily of vegetables, fruits, some grains, legumes, nuts, and seafood. When your Qi is strong and balanced, your body will be healthy and will “ask for” what it needs. Lotus Leaf and Astra 18 Diet remove food congestion and can help begin to bring balance to your digestion and Qi as you strive to reach your weight-loss goals. 

Exercise is an important part of a weight-loss plan; aerobic exercise burns calories and strength training boosts metabolism. Alternate workouts regularly to continue challenging muscles and quell boredom. Acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, and relaxation exercises are also beneficial for weight loss and management. 

Green, white, and oolong tea are rich in antioxidants and catechins, which have been found to increase metabolism and fat oxidation and make it easier to shed those pounds. Increasing water intake to about 8 glasses a day can also rev up metabolism, keep your stomach feeling full, and keep you hydrated and energetic for daily workouts. Nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables, can satisfy cravings and are crucial for a low-calorie and healthy diet. Removing sugar and refined carbohydrates and replacing them with whole grains, protein sources, fruits, and vegetables can help balance your diet and accelerate weight loss. 

Supplements can also help keep weight management on track. Vitamin D has been shown to support normal glucose metabolism, and a lack of vitamin D has been found to interfere with leptin, the hormone that signals your brain to stop eating. Calcium works with vitamin D to help shed fat and supports weight loss by preventing some fat from being absorbed into you bloodstream.
