Acupuncture and Weight Loss

The year is almost one quarter over – how are those resolutions coming along? Hopefully you have not abandoned them by now, as many of us do!  

The most common resolution that people make is to lose weight.  We all know that this is one of the hardest things to do, especially now that we’ve all come back to life and are attending social activities once again. Our busy schedules can make it very easy to give in to temptation and eat prepackaged foods, salty or sweet snacks, and postpone the trip to the gym. 

Studies have shown that acupuncture, combined with a healthy eating and exercise plan, can help you get back on track.  It can help in a variety of ways.

Gut health and digestion.  Acupuncture can improve how your digestive system functions, relieving bloating and constipation, which in turn can help you feel more energetic.  

Inflammation.  Acupuncture is a proven tension reliever, which can have a positive effect on your immune system. A properly functioning immune system can optimize your body for shedding pounds. 

Improved mood.  Do you overeat when you feel stressed? Stimulating the release of endorphins can ease stress and anxiety and help you get a handle on the urge to overeat. 

Relieve water retention. Acupuncture can also help stimulate kidney function, preventing bloat and water retention. 

Losing weight isn’t easy for anyone.  Acupuncture can be one more tool for you to use in combination with your healthy eating plan and regular exercise.   I’d love to explain more about acupuncture and all the benefits it can provide to an already beautiful YOU!  Make an appointment today by calling 917-620-9819 or by clicking here.
