Acupuncture Is A Globally Recognized Treatment For Losing Weight

by Alexander Ezzati

When it comes to losing weight, acupuncture is definitely a great form of therapy to achieve this. Most people find it very difficult to follow an exercise plan and diet that could help them lose weight. This is why they search for easier alternative modalities to reduce body weight. It is wiser to choose acupuncture treatment over the variety of diet pills that have adverse side effects and contain harmful chemicals. Acupuncture has been used in the Orient for thousands of years and is fast becoming a very popular alternative treatment in the West due to its proven effects.

People often gain weight because they often overeat, causing their body to store extra food which converts into fat. People who are overweight tend to be more anxious, frustrated, and stressful in life and based on current studies, they tend to overeat when they are under extreme stress; if this stress is mitigated, they stop over eating.

Acupuncture works by piercing filiform needles into the body in order to stimulate physiological points in the body. The treatment generates therapeutic outcomes and elicits a numbing or tingling sensation but never pain.

In Chinese medicine, the ear is believed to be the primary focal body area that is associated with weight loss. When a person begins craving for food, acupuncture needles inserted in the ear or body stimulate the release of endorphins which help the person relax intern reducing or eliminating their cravings. A bead or magnet can also be attached and manipulated to an acupuncture point on the person’s ear to suppress any food craving that may arise.

This helps the person control their weight and curb the cravings. With the help of a proper diet, the person can stay fit, healthy and full of energy. Although the sound of getting your ears pierced to lose weight may sound bizarre, it has been for thousands of years the most effective way to lose weight.

Acupuncture treatment is done two times a week until the person attains the desired weight. Besides acupuncture, the treatment plan also includes regular exercises and a healthy diet in order to lose weight and preserve the desired weight.

Ear or auricular acupuncture is a globally recognized, very effective treatment for losing weight and has many times been proven to work. Consult with a licensed acupuncturist to see how the time tested methods of Chinese medicine can start you on your journey to better health.
