Story of Mrs. Vink
I had given up the courage to lose weight for a long time. Because I was a migraine patient, I wasn’t able to follow a diet because I always ended up having more migraines.
At some point I decided to do something about my migraine and made an appointment at “ChinaMedic”. The acupuncture worked very well; a year after starting the treatments I occasionally suffered a little headache but that was it. No more migraines!
Because I went to “ChinaMedic” to be relieved of the migraines and soon benefited, I wondered if it was possible to do something about my weight as well. Of course, no problem. So, on Tuesdays I came in for 4 weeks for a migraine treatment and on Fridays for weightloss.
The slimming treatment consisted of 4x classic acupuncture leaving you with 3 very small needles in one ear after each treatment. This has to do with regulating your blood sugar level, which should not drop too much, because then you will feel like sweets. To support the weightloss you also get 4x herbal tea
Apart from the 4 visits I didn’t have to do much to lose weight. I have always exercised such as cycling and walking. During the treatments I started to do that more frequently. Cycling for an hour every day (in a heavier gear) or walking, not walking fast but walking briskly. ChinaMedic also gave me nutritional advice but I did a little more myself. I never felt hungry, not during the acupuncture nor after. What I do now is to look for carbohydrates in every food product I buy. I used to pay attention to fat but that never helped me lose weight. After 4 weeks of treatment, I had lost 5.6 kilos!
After 4 weeks I had to continue without the incentive from the ChinaMedic team. But my environment started to say: “You look good!” and that also stimulates. After another 9 weeks I lost another 5.4 kg by paying close attention to the carbohydrates and getting sufficient exercise. Paying attention to carbohydrates has now become second nature. It is wonderful to weigh a 59 kg instead of 70 kg. I now have size 38 and feel full of energy a year and half after I started with acupuncture. With their acupuncture treatment and friendly support, the ChinaMedic team helped me get rid of two ailments that had a negative impact on my quality of life: migraines and obesity. By not having these ailments any longer, I feel like a different person. I can advise anyone with overweight and / or migraine to make an appointment at ChinaMedic. Success is assured, I am proof of that!
The treatment is by no means painful, although it takes some getting used to getting needles in your body in all kinds of places. When the needles were inserted, I was usually so relaxed that I slept the 45 minutes that you were lying down. The ChinaMedic team is incredibly nice. If a few pounds were off, they would be just as happy as I was!
