ABSTRACT

Objectives The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical effect of oriental medical therapy on obesity and the progress of weight loss through an oriental obesity program. Methods The subjects were treated from January 2008 to February 2009 in J Korean Medical Hospital. Herbal medicine, electrolipolysis, auricular acupuncture were performed during the treatment period. We checked the change of weight every treatment time and measured the body composition by bioelectrical impedance analysis(BIA) every 2 weeks. Results The progress of weight loss was steady in the first 4 weeks except for the sixth weight check. After 4 weeks treatment, the weight loss was 3.52±1.98Kg and 4.83±2.68%. Total fat mass measured by BIA significantly decreased 2.58±1.30Kg after 4 weeks. Age and the weight loss were significantly negative correlated. Conclusions Oriental obesity treatment could be effective on obesity, but further studies would be needed for the foundation of a clinical guideline reflecting various factors.
