Acupuncture is increasingly becoming the most preferred treatment method when it comes to weight loss. When needles are inserted in strategic parts of the body or skin, endorphin’s – the feel good chemical in the body – are released. It is generally thought that when endorphin’s are released, it affects insulin levels by lowering it. With less insulin, there will be less fat in the body. And with less fat, there will be no weight gain.
The main reason that acupuncture is able to help with weight loss is because it acts as a supplemental therapy, but the patient will need to commit to a proper, nutritious and healthy diet with regular exercising and lower stress levels. The method is also known to significantly decrease cholesterol levels, and the pressure points which have been carefully determined earlier will play a major role in improving the overall health. The treatment also improves blood circulation and relaxes the nervous system. Acupuncture is a completely natural process, and therefore comes with no harmful side effects
