According to Chinese medicinal system, excessive gain of weight is mainly an imbalance within your body due to malfunction of the spleen and liver organ systems.
From the perspective of Chinese medicinal system, foods, acupuncture points and herbs that are specifically picked to help with weight loss directly influence the Qi of the liver and spleen to cure the root inequalities that are leading to weight gain.
From the western point of view, Chinese medicinal system and acupuncture shows an effect on the functioning endocrine system, nervous system, digestive system and food cravings.
All these are helpful to energize your body, improve the intake of nutrients, control overeating, regulate elimination, reduce anxiety and suppress the appetite.
For acupuncture points, the practitioner chooses the points for treatment according to your problem and then the needles are inserted at those points. These needles remain in place for 30-45 minutes.
Acupuncture points in the ear are substituted with ear staples and an adhesive is placed over them. Application of pressure on the ear staples and rubbing the staples suppresses the urge to eat in between the meals or when it is unnecessary. This causes the production of endorphins in order to relax you in regaining the control.
Endorphin hormone develops a physical and psychological environment in making decision to beat the temptation of overeating. If you want to lose weight quickly, then you need to take the acupuncture sessions frequently.
Acupuncture points for weight loss include:
Kidneys and endocrine system: To treat water retention, stimulate hormonal and nerve rebalance.
Shemmer point: Benefits in suppressing anxiety, frustration, anger, and insecurity.
Thyroid gland and spleen: For hormonal and sugar rebalancing.
Adrenal and ovarian glands: To reduce weight gain due to PMS or menopause.
