Weight control is a concern for many people, and something that can be difficult to achieve with diet alone. Acupuncture is one treatment that can assist with weight loss.
In order to achieve meaningful weight loss, lifestyle changes have to be made and acupuncture can be a helpful tool in changing eating habits. It has been reported to increase the body’s metabolism, reduce food cravings and improve circulation all around the body.
Studies have shown that people receiving acupuncture lost twice as much weight as those who were on a diet alone. In addition, those receiving acupuncture decreased their levels of total cholesterols, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol.
Acupuncture may also help to regulate sleep and this is also beneficial for weight loss because regular sleep patterns sustain the body throughout the day and help the metabolism to find a balanced and steady rhythm.
When acupuncture is used for weight loss it is important to have a detailed consultation with your acupuncturist because she needs to know your eating habits and appetite in order to diagnose digestive problems.
