Obesity has bulged along with the age of the fast-food culture. From Big Macs to $6 burgers and 1680-calorie chocolate shakes, the two words that define the culture of mega consumption today is upsize me (or super size me). The rise of the United States’ “gross weight,” (and I do mean gross) made it essential and only natural, in direct proportionality to its heaving problem, the rise of weight loss centers.
Your weight gain is Jenny Craig’s financial gain and it may be too conspiratorial to ponder that maybe, just maybe, Jenny Craig and the fast-food corporate trolls are in cahoots in making America’s citizens eat as if there’s no tomorrow. Of course, I am just kidding.
Back to the topic, most weight-loss centers do promote healthy living and lifestyle. There are diet or fitness programs that are very good for the body. How can one say “nein” to a six-pack ab guarantee in just 2 weeks or a physique that rivals Arnold’s (no, not the present day Arnold (are you kidding?) but the multi-titled Mr. Olympia champion of yore).
The problem with these programs is that the term “no pain, no gain” or better yet “no guts, no glory” applies. What if there is a way to shed those love handles or beer bellies without the grunts and the groans or the hunger moans that come with these programs and guaranteed 100% safe? There is and it is called weight loss acupuncture.
Weight loss acupuncture is so safe and so painless one need not fear strains or injuries while on it or suffer hunger by the second. It has no side effects, unlike pharmacologically induced weight loss programs where heart palpitations and addiction among others happen.
Acupuncture Jacksonville is the treatment of pain and ailments with the use of reedy-thin, feather light needles inserted in the skin at points traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) calls meridian points. These needles allow the free flow of chi or life force along the meridian systems. The meridian system according to TCM, is the invisible part of the body’s system that channels chi throughout the body. It functions similarly to the circulatory system but instead of blood, chi flows through it.
Due to emotional or psychological stress or physical injuries; blockage or stagnation of chi happens at specific parts of the body, mainly around the body organs and if this happens, disease and/or ailments occur. To remove these blockages, acupuncture is performed.
When treating for obesity, acupuncture enables the release of endorphins in the body. Its release likewise frees the patient from his/her addiction to food. The chi also stimulates the body to facilitate the burning of calories and the excretion of waste materials. Acupuncture thus, not only assists the body to lose weight, it also cures the source of the person’s problem, which in this case is his/her addiction to food.
