Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are a natural and effective method of healthcare to reduce weight and assist in achieving a healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture and herbs in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise may assist with weight reduction. Acupuncture has shown to play a significant role in weight loss by reducing food cravings in people who are overweight or obese. The benefit of acupuncture treatment looks at underlying issues that may be contributing to the weight problem and seeks to treat these conditions.
- Assist in general well being
- Increases energy
- Assists with cravings
- Achieves a relaxed state of mind
- Increases metabolism
Some people with weight problems can feel tired and lethargic which can hinder a more active lifestyle. If they are able to increase their energy levels through acupuncture treatment, then they are more likely to participate in exercise which will in turn assist with weight loss and improvement of fitness levels.
Acupuncture may also be used to treat a range of related conditions such as metabolic syndrome, anxiety and depression which if treated, may assist with maintaining weight loss and feeling better in life.
There is no magic solution for weight loss – it requires a whole of life approach. Acupuncture can be part of an holistic approach aimed at fixing the whole problem rather than just a quick slim down solution.
