If you want to lose weight naturally and without drugs, why not try Acupuncture for your weight loss program?
According to traditional Chinese acupuncture, excessive weight gain, are due to disturbances in qi, a type of energy that flows in meridian paths through the body. Acupuncture for weight loss aims to correct any energy disturbances that affect eating, digestion and weight maintenance. According to TCM, the root of excess weight is an imbalance within the body caused by malfunctioning of the spleen and liver organ systems. It triggers the necessary and accurate function of the nervous system, digestive system, endocrine system, and of course metabolism.
When combined with a nutritious diet and regular exercise, acupuncture has been found to significantly improve weight loss and reduce cholesterol levels by:
- reducing food cravings
- decreasing appetite/addiction
- decreasing stress levels by releasing endorphins which may have a positive effect on your digestive and hormonal systems. Anxiety and stress increase your cortisol levels, which can slow weight loss as well.
- increasing energy levels to encourage motivation
- boosts bodies metabolism improving digestion
- improving circulation
Acupuncture sessions combine body and ear points according to the individual’s condition. A series of 10 to 15 sessions is deemed sufficient to initiate weight loss, and each session provides effects for five to seven days.
In the struggle to eat less and expend more energy, you may find that acupuncture is just what was needed to overcome cravings, boost energy, enhance your metabolism, and increase your willpower to succeed!
