Weight loss is a journey that many embark upon, but not everyone finds success with conventional methods. Whether it’s the endless cycle of dieting, the gruelling gym sessions, or the confusing array of supplements, achieving your ideal weight can often feel like an uphill battle.

That’s where Chinese Medicine comes into play. At Evolution Medical Care, we offer Chinese Medicine as a science-backed treatment option for weight loss, focusing on your holistic well-being rather than just the numbers on the scale.

The Science Behind Chinese Medicine for Weight Loss

Chinese Medicine takes a unique approach to weight loss, one that goes beyond calorie counting and strenuous exercise. It aims to balance the body’s internal systems to create a harmonious environment conducive to weight loss and overall health. But how does it work on a biochemical level?


One of the key players in weight management is your hormones. Imbalances in hormones like insulin, cortisol, and leptin can wreak havoc on your weight loss efforts. Chinese Medicine, particularly through treatments like Acupuncture, can help regulate these hormones, bringing them back to a balanced state.


Chronic inflammation is another roadblock in your weight loss journey. Inflammation can lead to weight gain and make it difficult to lose weight. Herbal and Mineral Supplements used in Chinese Medicine are rich in anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation and support weight loss.

Insulin Sensitivity

Insulin sensitivity is crucial for effective weight management. Poor insulin sensitivity can lead to weight gain and even conditions like Type 2 diabetes. Acupuncture and other Chinese Medicine treatments can improve insulin sensitivity, making it easier for your body to manage weight.


Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, is often termed the ‘feel-good hormone.’ It plays a significant role in mood regulation and can also influence appetite and cravings. Chinese Medicine aims to balance serotonin levels, helping you to manage emotional eating, which is often a significant barrier to weight loss.

In summary, Chinese Medicine doesn’t just offer a band-aid solution; it gets to the root cause of your weight issues. Our research-backed treatments like Acupuncture and Herbal Supplements offer a comprehensive approach to weight loss that is tailored to your individual needs.
