Weight loss can be difficult to attain, even if you cut calories and increase movement. Traditional Chinese medicine suggests that a spleen Qi deficiency plays a large role in weight retention and weight loss difficulties. This deficiency means that you may have a weak digestive system and that the food you eat is not easily absorbed, leaving you hungry. Being perpetually hungry promotes overeating and the cycle continues.
There are signs of spleen Qi deficiency which you should be aware of. Bloating, sugar cravings, bowel issues, sagging skin are all classic signs of a spleen deficiency. Other more serious conditions could be palpitations, dizziness, period problems and anxiety. If you are experiencing these symptoms you may benefit from some of our Chinese medicine solutions.
