Menopause & Weight ControlI am a 64 year old female who has been in menopause now for several years. The onset of symptoms were many, but the most problematic for me was Uncontrollable weight gain in my mid section. Believe me when I say I had Tried as many different diets I could get my hands on, some of them worked, but Most of them had limited results, Coupled with many hours of exercise at the gym, I lost the weight, only to have it come back faster than losing it. It seemed as though my body was literally making fat.
I even tried hormone therapy, but had little affect on the abdominal, muffin top, bra line annoying fat!!!
Out of desperation, and I what I felt was my last resort, upon recommendation from a friend who had seen Dr. Zhang for hormonal imbalances, I decided to see her for a consultation, just to see if there was anything she could do, all the while Being skeptical that no one could help stop the fat accumulation. We started Acupuncture therapy and within a few sessions, the inches literally started to Melt away. And once we saw results, it kept getting better and better, and the Fat cells kept shrinking. By the end of my first session, which lasted several weeks as I was preparing for a wedding, I had lost a total of 5 inches in the Mid section and was down 3 dress sizes !!! I felt and looked fantastic !!!
Back to what my shape was prior to menopause. And my self confidence came back, because I was feeling good about the way I looked, and felt. That was 3 years ago, and every year, I revisit Dr. Zhang for a refresher, just to keep on track and maintained, to keep my body balanced. The results do not happen overnight, be patient, because the mid section abdominal fat is very difficult to treat, and if you are reading this, then you already know that. Dr. Zhang will work with you to fine tune your treatment to your individual body composition. No two are the same. What worked for me, may not work for you, but Dr. Zhang will create a treatment plan customized to your unique body’s needs.
