Explore the TCM methods of addressing obesity that can contribute to effective and healthy weight management.

Obesity has become a global health crisis, affecting over 1 billion people worldwide. Some resort to extreme dieting or intense exercise for weight loss but encounter significant challenges and a high risk of rebound. On the other hand, some individuals, despite controlling their food intake, experience water retention leading to a condition known as edema. In this article, we will explore several traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) methods, including acupressure massage, tapping therapy, and dietary adjustments, that can contribute to effective and healthy weight management.

Today, it is widely recognized that obesity is linked to cardiovascular diseases, Type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Therefore, successful weight loss can prevent the onset of many diseases.

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, from 1999 to 2000 to March 2017 to 2020, the prevalence of obesity in the United States increased from 30.5 percent to 41.9 percent. During the same period, the prevalence of severe obesity rose from 4.7 percent to 9.2 percent.
