Shed Those Extra Pounds! Acupuncture Helps You Achieve Weight Loss Goals

Acupuncture Aids in Weight Loss!

Acupuncture Aids in Weight Loss!

Summer weather has arrived, and acupuncture is your weight loss ally!

You are beautiful now. No doubt about it. But if you are looking to shed some extra pounds, acupuncture is an effective, natural and safe means of getting you to your optimum weight!

There are many reasons people become overweight – lack of exercise, overeating, hormone imbalances, slowed metabolism, and poor nutrition are a few of the most common.

Acupuncture is a great alternative treatment for establishing a healthy weight. It works as an appetite suppressant, aids in digestion, helps boost metabolism and enables relaxation. Acupuncture helps balance hormones, and decreases the hormones that contribute to weight gain.

It also strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats. Several studies have shown that when acupuncture is combined with traditional methods of weight loss, patients lose more weight.

Acupuncture releases endorphins, balances hormones and reduces stress!

Regular acupuncture treatments have also been shown to help tone and shrink the stomach muscle, and this helps you feel full faster.

Acupuncture affects both physical wellness and mental aspects of weight loss. An increased level of endorphins is helpful in curbing your cravings, and this can be particularly helpful for those who deal with emotional eating. This can help reduce binge eating. Acupuncture will leave you feeling calm and relaxed and often less hungry.

Best of all, with acupuncture, there are no harmful side effects and no possibility for addiction.

Along with a healthy eating plan and appropriate exercise, acupuncture is a wonderful way to help you lose weight.
