In Chinese Medicine: Obesity is differentiated by excess stomach fire. Excess stomach fire causes excess appetite, intake of toxic food and generates damp heat in the digestive system. Damp-heat is characterized by excess fat remaining in the digestive system rather than being eliminated as it should on a daily basis. The use of acupuncture, ear seeds and herbal remedies can suppress the excess appetite, increase the body metabolism and clear the damp-heat accumulation.
