Acupuncture has been practiced since time immemorial and is known for its healing and relaxing benefits. It is said to be performed to unblock the disturbance in the qi, or the flow of energy in our body.
Most people resort to acupuncture to resolve health issues and physical pain. However, did you know that it is also used by TCM practitioners as an assistance to weight loss?
Here are some ways on how this traditional therapy can aid in the reversion of obesity:
Acupuncture can fix your hormonal levels, including your hormones for hunger and satiation. Ghrelin tells your body when it’s looking for food, while leptin signals the body when it is already full.
With acupuncture helping out in maintaining their balance, your appetite will be reduced and your diet will be managed.
Hitting certain points along the stomach channel system with acupuncture enhances the function of your digestive system. This leads to better nutrient absorption which consequently improves your gut health.
Moreover, it can lessen the occurrence of gastrointestinal problems such as bloating and constipation that can trigger weight gain.
Breaks Saturated Fats
Saturated fat is a dietary fat that increases the level of cholesterol in your blood. They are commonly found in red meat, tropical oils, and dairy products such as whole milk, butter, sour cream and cheese.
When coupled with the right diet, electro-acupuncture can accelerate the dissolution of these unhealthy lipids.
Reduces Fluid Retention
One of the causes of bloating and swelling of your body parts is the retention of water in your body. Too much of this can make you appear larger and can even lead to serious illnesses like heart failure, kidney disease and liver cirrhosis.
By stimulating the endocrine system, acupuncture can help address the effects of the abnormal retention of fluid.
The acupuncture process also stimulates the thyroid gland, the body part responsible for regulating your metabolism. It speeds up your body’s ability to burn fat, causing you to move more easily and quickly shed off unwanted weight.
Acupuncture is a great way to naturally get rid of extra pounds without having to spend a huge amount on ineffective supplements. It also saves you from the side effects of instant weight reduction, which poses major risks to your own health.
