Diet and cooking tips

Better and lasting results by combining diet and acupuncture

Combining a low-carb diet with weekly acupuncture sessions not only regulates hormones and changes the body's metabolism, but also reduces the feeling of hunger, helping you follow the diet without perceiving too many sacrifices, and maintain your results over time.

Sinomedica Shou Shen®

The Sinomedica Shou Shen® program consists of an innovative therapy that combines a low-carbohydrate diet with weekly acupuncture sessions aimed at regulating hormones and changing the body's metabolism.
All in!


The complete program promotes the treatment of overweight and obesity. 

More restrictive than the "Half Diet", it is based on blending simple foods to create tasty dishes. Specifically, it is a low carbohydrate diet made up of vegetables and proteins (meat and fish) that, combined with acupuncture sessions, changes the metabolism from anabolic to catabolic, causing the body to gain energy from burning its own fat.

In the first week, patients generally lose 3 to 6 kilos and 1.5 to 2 kilos per week afterwards, until the ideal weight is reached.

Step by step...

Half diet

Sinomedica Half Diet is ideal for those who need to lose up to 10 kg, for pregnant women, athletes, and children.

It is again a low-calorie diet, although less restrictive than the first one. An important difference is that, unlike the former, it is an anabolic diet and not a metabolic one, so the metabolism does not change from anabolic to catabolic.

As in the restrictive diet, the combination with acupuncture reduces hunger and activates metabolism, significantly reducing the feeling of hunger and promoting the elimination of accumulated fat. 


The three dietary rules for maintaining results

Less is more

Eliminate carbohydrates, sweets and dairy products. Replace them with more fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, tofu, nuts, seeds and eggs.

3 meals a day
Eat only at main meals, without snacking between meals. Serve yourself one plate per meal and without filling it up.
Quality, not quantity
Reduce quantities, but choose foods that are more satiating, low-calorie, and bulky (the eye wants its share, too!).
