From the Western perspective the problem of obesity in our country has to do with decreasing physical activity combined with increasing availability of fast foods and especially processed foods that lack fiber and are high in calorie density.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the increase in percent body fat has to do with an unbalanced Diet which causes an imbalance in the Spleen and Stomach with the pathogenic cause being an accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm. In most cases the obese individual has more Dampness, Phlegm and Deficiency. Therefore, the treatment principle is to eliminate Dampness which has caused the Spleen to lose its transporting functions. Spleen deficiency leads to Dampness. Then it is the accumulated Dampness which induces the Phlegm which becomes turbid Phlegm and this leads the body to become fat. The treatment principle must be to clean viscera for those who eat a heavy and fatty Diet and also to eliminate gastrointestinal Excess Heat.
