The Treatment of Obesity by Acupuncture

Obesity could well become the most common health problem of the 21st century (Palou et al., 2000). Obesity is a disease resulting from the over storage of fat in the body. It is a problem concerning the balance of energy. An imbalance between energy input and energy consumption causes an increase in the body fat rate (Palou et al., 2000). It is known that the prevalence of obesity in adults and children has been increasing significantly around the world (Weinstock et al., 1998). In this century, obesity has been seen especially in industrial countries (Leonhardt et al., 1999). The over-consumption of delicious, high-calorie food and decrease in physical activity play major roles in increasing the prevalence of obesity in industrial countries (Campfield et al., 1996; Hill & Peters, 1998). The cost of treatment of obesity and obesity-related diseases is significant in general health expenditures in the United States (Bray, 1998).
