Obesity has become an epidemic in the United States. As many as one quarter of all Americans are considered overweight. Consequently, nearly $33 billion will be spent annually on weight loss programs and almost 85 percent of those trying to lose weight will fail. There are many reasons why Americans are getting larger waistlines, but ultimately, the most common cause is related to when, what, and how much they eat and exercise.
Acupuncture is a drug-fee, safe, and effective method for helping with weight loss. A vast majority of people tend to look for the “quick fix” which usually doesn’t work in the long run. However, if a person is able to take control of their actions and make healthy decisions, then acupuncture can greatly speed up the process of shedding pounds.
When it comes to weight loss, acupuncture helps to increase your metabolism, reduce water retention, rebalance hormone levels, regulate sugar metabolism, and reduce stress, which can lead to binge eating and other unhealthy eating habits. Acupuncture for weight loss is not a “magic bullet” that automatically cures the problem. Controlling your diet and getting proper exercise and rest are all crucial when trying to lose weight. With our support, many of our patients are able to do all these things together and as a result, they’ve had great success in losing weight when all other attempts have failed.
