Weight Loss, Summer Confidence

WEIGHT loss Blog

Hello Summer Fun fans!

Our post today is about how Acupuncture can help you lose weight and achieve greater self confidence. From a Chinese Medicine perspective, weight gain can come from many different types of issues. It is the goal of Jun’s New Life Acupuncture to create an individualized program for each person to treat the specific root of their problem.

For example, if someone is gaining weight because of a decline in energy and therefore a decline in desire for physical activity, the root of the problem for them may center on Qi sinking or organ imbalance creating the reduced energy. For an Acupuncturist to design a program for weight loss, the root of the problem must be addressed. In this case, the doctor would work towards balancing the organ system and correcting the flow of Qi with acupuncture and herbal therapy.

As another example, long term poor eating habits can cause damp accumulation in the body, which is heavy, sticky, thick and causes weight gain. For this the treatment principle would likely be to drain damp and strengthen the transforming and transporting function of the organs. By doing this, you can get the body drained of excess dampness, and create smooth flow of Qi that helps you lose weight.

The reasons for one’s unhappiness with their physical appearance or physique are many, and the treatment principles equally diverse. The way that Acupuncture can help with your weight loss and self confidence is by creating a program using our herbal, acupuncture, diet, and advice system that the doctors 25 years of experience in treatment has designed. For this purpose, Jun’s New Life Acupuncture is equipped with the Venus 21C machine as an aid to weight loss. This system is used in conjunction with acupuncture, herbs, and dietary suggestions. The Venus System is a machine that uses cups and ultrasound technology to promote greater fat loss that is effective but side effect free.

Does it work one may ask? Yes, it is an effective system and you will not be discouraged by your results!

New Year, New You! Time to Detox!


Hello Everyone!

Do you want to start your new year with a detoxification?

It’s the beginning of a brand new year! Lets kick off the New Year with detoxing our bodies to make room for new changes, a slimmer appearance, and clear complexion. We can give you some simple tips today to help you get your cleanse under way.

Here is a good recipe to start you off:

Detox Juice
Boil Cabbage, Broccoli, Carrot and Tomato in water for 10-15 minutes. Then, you make this into a juice! If the taste is bad, you can add honey or fruit that will improve the taste.
This very simple recipe is low calorie, and it will clean you out to get rid of constipation, food stagnation, and some of those extra calories you packed on during the holidays. You just drink this every day! Cabbage especially will help you stay hydrated and give you nutrition. You can even use this juice instead of your regular meal once a day to help your weight loss and digestive issues. It is important to note that boiling these foods is better because it is more nourishing boiled than as a cold or raw juice. Nourishing your body is important when detoxifying it.

Lets briefly discuss what it means to detoxify yourself. Detoxing yourself is as much a physical issue as a mental issue! When we detox, our minds and bodies detox! It starts with recognizing the mental clutter you are experiencing, and letting go of those things that don’t serve you. If you can commit to 20 minutes of meditation a day for 1 week you will feel mentally clear and rested! Also, when cleansing your body, it is important to eat as organic as possible. Try very hard not to eat out during detox and make foods at home instead that are fresh, organic, and unprocessed. Lean meats, vegetables and fruits are best. It is also important to drink a lot of water and not to consume alcohol or sugary drinks.

Here is a few more tips for detoxifying the body:

*Drink Lemon water on an empty stomach
*Eat salty nature foods like kelp, seaweed, and lean fish
*Eat, sesame, mung bean, garlic, and Reishi Mushroom dishes
*Drink strong ginger and green teas

If these tips do not help you detox and feel better, then come in to the clinic and get a treatment! We can find the root of your problem and build a treatment plan to help you detox your body to be slimmer, think clearer, have a good complexion, and reduce digestive problems.

Wishing you the best for this New Year!

Healing the Mind, Body, & Soul, a Healthy and Stress Free Life is our ultimate Goal.
