These 5 subjects were selected among the patientswho were 30 to 38 years old. We practiced combined therapy such as cultivated wild ginsengpharmacopuncture on 5 points of abdominal fat and thread implantation therapy on 10 points ofabdominal fat, twice a week, totally for 2 weeks. And the other therapies and recommendationsabout nutrition and exercises were totally excluded for 2 weeks. Body weight was reduced by 1.0kg. Fat mass was reduced by 1.36 kg. And waist circumference was reduced by 3.98 cm. Thus itwas acknowledged that waist partial fat could be reduced only by 2 interventions within 2 weeks.
