Yu Zhu LAc, MD(China) - Rated the BEST Arlington Heights Acupuncturist - 5 STARS


What are the best ways to lose weight? The truth is there is no single cause for all obesity and as a result, there is no single approach that can prevent or treat it. This is why so many succeed on one weight loss program and so many others fail on the same weight loss program.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs for Weight Loss
Possibly One of the Easiest and Best Ways to Lose Weight

Serving Arlington Heights, Mt Prospect, Rolling Meadows and surrounding suburbs for more than 35 years First Health’s Center for Integrative Medicine is proud to offer our patients Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) including the use of Chinese herbal medicines and acupuncture for weight loss. Our Arlington Heights acupuncture clinic is led by author, researcher, professor Yu Zhu, MD (China). Dr Zhu has more than 30 years clinical experience and over 27 years TCM teaching experience. In addition to using various Chinese herbal medicines and acupuncture for weight loss she treats an array of conditions including general pain management.

Most of us are aware that being overweight or obese can lead to serious health issues. Some of the more serious conditions include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis and stroke. At First Health we often combine behavior counseling, Chinese herbs for weight loss, weight loss teas and acupuncture for weight loss to increase energy, reduce hunger and cravings, improve mood and increase relaxation.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views the body as a complex system of energy channels, or meridians. TCM focuses on identifying disharmony and imbalance in these channels that can lead to obesity and chronic illness. The qi (pronounced “chee”), the vital energy or life force that travels through these meridians, can become blocked or overstimulated due to unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor diet and lack of exercise. Acupuncture, individualized weight loss teas and specific Chinese herbs for weight loss can affect the qi of the spleen and liver. All herbs are selected and individualized based on the needs of the patient. Our Arlington Heights acupuncturist can restore the balance and harmony to the qi creating a state of health, so that the body naturally has decreased food cravings and more energy. Acupuncture for weight loss is a natural, safe option and one of the best ways to lose weight for many who struggle with weight.
