ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of Ganoderma lucidum pharmacopuncture and moxibustion on abdominal obesity. Five women with abdominal obesity were treated 6 times in 2 weeks with Ganoderma lucidum pharmacopuncture on abdominal fat followed by 30 minutes of moxibustion on abdominal area. Before treatment and after 6 treatments were finished, body weight, body mass index, body fat mass, waist circumference, hip circumference and waist-hip ratio were measured. After all treatments, all average measured values were reduced. Body weight and body mass index were reduced by 0.34 kg and 0.46 kg/m2 respectively. Also, waist circumference and waist-hip ratio were reduced by 4.52 cm and 0.04 respectively. We suppose combined therapy of Ganoderma lucidum pharmacopuncture and moxibustion might be a time-effective treatment for abdominal obesity.
