You Might Be Eating the Wrong ‘Healthy’ Foods!

Did you know that according to Chinese Medicine, these popular diet foods actually cause weight gain?

  • Whole wheat bread
  • Skim Milk
  • Low Fat Cheese
  • Fruit
  • Salad

Surprised? Acupuncturists know that these popular diet foods slow your metabolism. That’s because they are mucus forming, ‘damp’ foods. Damp foods clog digestion causing an inability to process your food properly into vital calorie burning energy.

How Can Acupuncture Help With Weight Loss?

Acupuncture works by treating imbalances in your body that are at the root of your weight gain. These causes include: hormonal imbalances, slow metabolism, digestive disorders, anxiety and depression, sleep issues such as insomnia, fatigue, and food intolerances.

Dr-Mehmet-Oz-150x150Dr. Oz Says: “Of particular interest is the ability of acupuncture to influence obesity hormones. Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss found treatments increased ghrelin, a hormone that controls meal initiation and decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism.” – Dr. Oz

Weight Loss Research Studies

Acupuncture Affects Hunger Signal in the Brain

The rationale for using acupuncture for weight control is based in the premise that weight gain could be the result of disturbed energy flow to and from the regulating center of the brain, called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for maintaining “homeostasis” or functional balance that allows the body to run like a finely tuned instrument. It is the body’s dispatch center that regulates hormones and neurochemicals, and helps to control body temperature, circadian rhythm, thirst and hunger.

Acupuncture Helps Mom Lose Baby Weight

After the birth of her second son, Allison, 25, found herself in the same situation as many other new moms with a few pounds left to lose and no idea how to do it. While she tried cleaning up her diet and she was a regular at the gym, the weight wasn’t budging, so this mom turned to something a little less conventional: acupuncture.
