Editor’s Summary

For patients with obesity, weighing the advantages and disadvantages of various non-drug therapeutic methods and helping them choose the right method is the best way to fight obesity.

Abstract

Obesity, which bring a great perplex to family and society, has significant contribution to the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other comorbidities. In past four decades, the incidence of obesity has been on the alarming rise and so far about a third of the world's adults are affected by obesity. Due to the side effects and adverse reactions of drug treatment, obesity patients tend to select non-drug treatment. The present review summarizes the non-drug treatment of obesity in recent years, including acupuncture, exercise, surgery, lifestyle intervention and psychological guidance, to summarize their underlying mechanism and provide further guidance for clinical practitioners. Auricular acupuncture was proved to have the positively influence in Ghrelin, a novel obesity-related peptide hormone. Exercise could treat obesity by reducing the inflammatory factors associated with obesity. Furthermore, obesity surgery can not only reduce fat intake and nutrient absorption, but also inhibit the generation of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) by increasing the secretion of Peptide YY (PYY). Besides, breaking down psychological and behavioral barriers to lifestyle treatment of obesity will have a significant effect.

This paper expounds the scientific nature of “the co-treatment of the neck, chest, and waist” from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine theory and modern medical research.

Editor’s Summary

This review proposes a new approach in cervical diseases in terms of the co-treatment of the neck, chest, and waist, which not only improves clinical efficiency but also decrease recurrence rate.

Abstract

Cervical diseases are frequently occurring diseases. Currently, the local physical therapy is the most commonly suggested treatment method. We believe that cervical spine lesion cause spinal instability and then the physiological function of the thoracic and lumbar spine is also affected by it. Therefore, the study on cervical lesions should not be limited to the local part of the cervical spine but should extend to the restoration of stability of the spine, to achieve the same curative effects on the chest and waist. Therefore, we propose a new concept for the co-treatment of the neck, chest, and waist. The concept of this proposed therapy is based on three theoretical aspects: syndrome differentiation, disease prevention, and Du meridian and its relationship with other meridians. This was elaborated from the perspective of spinal static balance, anatomy, epidemiological evidence, and biochemistry. The relationship between cervical vertebral lesions and thoracic and lumbar vertebral lesions indicates the scientific nature of the “co-treatment of the neck, chest, and waist”. This article also summarizes the methods of non-drug therapy under the guidance of this theory.
