Unwanted weight gain is a continuous problem for many individuals, even outside of the holidays. Some people will turn to drastic diets, diet pills or even surgery. Unfortunately, this may only be a cosmetic or short term fix, but may not get to the root of the imbalances or cause(s) of the weight gain. Luckily, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture offer a natural approach to losing weight.
Acupuncture can work to control weight through a number of methods. First, many cravings are often the cause of a lack of endorphins. Acupuncture can help the body to release endorphins and thus balance out cravings. Stress can be another factor relating to unwanted weight gain. Through the release of endorphins, the stress hormone can be neutralized.
In addition, having a good digestion system can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. Acupuncture can help support the body to generate an efficient digestive process.
Whether it’s help losing that holiday weight, or a goal you’ve had for a while, call to make an appointment for acupuncture to help you lose today!
