We get many phone calls asking if acupuncture for weight loss works. We respond by saying it is an important part of any weight loss plan. The truth is there is no magic bullet for weight loss. It requires a comprehensive approach that includes dietary and lifestyle changes that are sustainable over time; stress reduction and addressing and emotional issues; uncovering food intolerances and allergies; creating hormonal balance; and, of course, exercise.
Luckily, acupuncture is effective at addressing many of these. Your acupuncturist can help you come up with a nutritional plan based on the wisdom of Chinese dietary therapy. Acupuncture reduces stress and emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression. Acupuncture also effectively helps your body come back to a state of hormonal balance. It can also help overcomeallergies and give you more energy to exercise. With all these benefits,no wonder acupuncture is the treatment of choice for many when it comes to weight loss.
