A lot of people have turned to acupuncture as a weight loss method. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice is an effective method of boosting weight loss when on a diet. Here’s how acupuncture can help your weight loss goals.
The reason why acupunture is used for weight loss is because it can solve the energy distribution problem of the body that normally causes weight gain. Chinese medicine has it that what causes obesity is the disruption of energy flow of the body, which results to the malfunctioning of certain organs such as kidneys, spleen, and digestive system. These disruption of energy flow also affects a part of the brain called hypothalamus, which controls the rate of hunger and thirst of the body.
More still, these disruptions of energy impact negatively on fat accumulation, water retention, and stress development, which is the main contributor of our extra pounds weight.
Acupuncture increases metabolism, improves the cholesterol levels and the functioning of the intestines. Also, it helps in improving moods and reduce stress by releasing specific neurotransmitters to the body. Most importantly, it helps suppress appetite, thereby keeping you full at all time.
Acupuncture appears to be quite effective at reducing body mass and aiding weight loss when used together with diet and exercise. However, before you start using acupuncture for weight loss, you’ll need to discuss with your acupuncturist about the real cause of your weight gain. Some people gain weight as a result of stress – here, the best weight loss method will be to help the individual relax more often. For others, habitual eating may be the reason for weight gain – here, treatment will be focused on problems related to cravings.
When your acupuncturist must have identified the problem, he/she will now be able to decide the appropriate combination of points to push the needles for about 2mm. This is done to break up the energy nodes that are causing disruption to the proper functioning of your body.
The most important points to be observed for acupuncture weight loss are:
Stomach – to prevent compulsive snacking
Mouth – for those who eat too much
Kidneys – for water retention treatment
Lungs – to treat addiction to certain foods
Spleen – to solve sugar related problems
It’s advised that you follow 2 sessions every week for about 2 to 3 months. Researchers recommend that pairing acupuncture treatments with other healthy lifestyle choices like portion control, healthy foods, and regular physical activity, will lead to amazing results – Always remember that.
Good luck with your weight loss goals!
