Whether you want to just drop a few pounds or many, acupuncture works with you to make it easier!
Spring is definitely in the air, and for many of us, Winter helped us pack on a few pounds more than we’d like to admit.
Overeating is the obvious first choice, but there are many reasons people become overweight – poor nutrition, heredity, hormonal imbalances, a slow metabolism, and lack of exercise are also some of the most common.
Becoming overweight can also be the consequence of various medical conditions. This includes hypertension, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis.
The ancient practice of acupuncture helps to heal a host of ailments, and it also aids in weight loss!
Acupuncture can power up any other weight control strategy by helping to keep your appetite in check, easing cravings, improving digestion, and enhancing the way nutrients are used.
Acupuncture treatments release endorphins which have a calming and relaxing effect. It makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating fattening foods.
Those endorphins also affect the digestive and hormonal systems. Acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast, or in this case too slow; specifically your metabolism and will power. If lack of energy is an issue, acupuncture treatments will give you a boost!
In addition, acupuncture strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats. A healthy liver is a happy liver! Acupuncture can also increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach to help people know that they are full.
Acupuncture is effective, painless, and best of all, drug-free!
