A note about Acupuncture and Weight Loss Effects
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
Another theory indicates that TCM is effective in regulating the functioning of the central nervous system, digestive systems, endocrine system, thereby increasing the rate of metabolism, absorption of nutrients, facilitates elimination of excess food, decreases the tendency to overeat, and decreases anxiety.
Some of the techniques employed for acupuncture and weight loss treatment includes what is described in the rest of this article.
Acupuncture or trigger points in the body are selected keeping the total health and wellness of the patient in mind. The idea is to increase and improve blood circulation and energy or qi, thereby increasing the rate of metabolism and relaxing the nerves and nervous system. This is one way which accounts for the link between acupuncture and weight loss.
Also, depending upon the cause or reason for weight gain, different trigger points could be selected for acupuncture treatment. If weight gain is resulting from overeating because of the underlying problem of premenstrual syndrome or PMS, then the acupuncturist will work on treating the problem at that particular time that PMS would manifest.
Treatment could also include auricular and body acupuncture combination to facilitate decreasing appetite and increasing metabolism and releasing energy blockages. Acupuncture ear points have been very effective in reducing or decreasing the overall weight. It is believed that human ear has points that are connected to all important organs in the human body.
Auricular points used for effective weight loss are stimulated by placing small tacks behind the ears during acupuncture sessions. After the acupuncture session, small-sized pellets or magnets are fixed behind the ears to increase effectiveness of the auricular trigger points at home. These small beads will continue to remain there for about five to six days and will need to be gently massaged for about ten seconds if food craving arise.
Thus, by controlling hunger pangs, need to over eat, and releasing blocked energy, people suffering from abnormal weight gain can benefit from acupuncture and weight loss treatment which is much less painful compared to other weight loss programs being offered.
