These formulas are combined to lose weight, more gentle and safe than Ma Huang based formulas.

Treatment principle

Tonify Yang,raise metabolism

A total of 31 studies, which comprised a total of 3013 individual cases, were systematically reviewed. Owing to insufficient data in 2 RCTs, 29 RCTs were used for meta-analysis.

Compared to control of lifestyle, acupuncture was associated with a

significant reduction of average body

weight (95% confidence interval, CI) of 1.72 kg (0.50-2.93 kg) and associated with an improvement in obesity (relative

risk=2.57; 95% CI, 1.98-3.34).

Acupuncture significantly reduced a body weight of 1.56 kg (0.74-2.38 kg), on average, compared to placebo or sham treatments

Acupuncture also showed more improved outcomes for body weight (mean difference=1.90 kg; 1.66-2.13 kg), as well as for obesity (relative risk=1.13; 1.04-1.22), than conventional medication

Only four RCTs reported acupuncture-related adverse events, which were mostly minimal.

CONCLUSION

Our review suggests that acupuncture is an effective treatment for obesity. there is an urgent need for well- planned, long-term studies to address the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating obesity
