Lose Weight With Acupuncture


Acupuncture can assist in your attempts to lose weight and can be done in a couple of ways, both involving the ears. One way is to use very small needles placed at strategic points in the ear in order to trigger responses in the body that control appetite. Another equally, if not more effective way is to place small magnets behind the ears which, when tapped during cravings, help to eliminated them. 


Magnets (placed in and around the ears) can assist in weight loss. This process is called "bio-magnetism" which increases cellular respiration thereby breaking fats and carbohydrates down into more usable forms of energy. Increasing cellular respiration causes more efficient use of calories and you lose weight by burning stored fats.


"Acupuncture stimulates the auricular branch of the vagal nerve and raises serotonin levels, both of which have been shown to increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach, thus suppressing appetite".
