Losing weight with acupuncture Miami is one of the easiest and most effective ways by far to achieve one’s desired weight. The basis of weight loss is simple to the core: if you burn more calories than what you take in, you will lose weight. However, factors such as flavor enhancers like monosodium glutamate (MSG) work by suppressing the mechanism that tells the body that it is already sated with food. So the body keeps on eating even though it is already filled up. Another factor is junk food that contains poor nutrients. The body needs to eat a lot of these to attain the daily nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Therefore, more food intake means more weight gain. Another factor is stress. To counteract stress, the body sees food as a source of comfort since eating itself releases endorphins that help relax the body and remove stress.
People are triggered to turn to food in stressful situations especially when one is sad or unhappy. However, people can also turn to food during happy times especially when they feel they have accomplished something meaningful for them. Food can be a source of reward or solace in a person’s life. Some people suffer from slow metabolism. This may be good at times in preserving nutrients but after a while the excess weight can become a liability. Carrying excess weight makes it more difficult for mobility which makes it difficult to do activities which then is another factor in weight gain.
To lose weight naturally, effectively and safely, acupuncture treatment can be a very viable option. Acupuncture is often combined with Chinese herbal medicine to help the person lessen his/her food cravings and to improve body metabolism allowing the body to burn calories more efficiently. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that too much weight gain is caused by energy imbalances in the spleen and liver. These two organs directly affect the endocrine and digestive systems. Restoring balance and harmony to these two organs helps regulate and normalize the functions of the endocrine and digestive systems.
There is no doubt that acupuncture truly works in helping people lose weight. However, unlike conventional treatments like gastric bypass surgery, it does not work overnight. Also, without lifestyle and diet changes, acupuncture can only get one so far in reaching one’s desired weight level. It is important to do daily exercises and eat nutritious foods that make one feel filled after only a few food intakes. Acupuncture will make it easier for one to stick with a diet since acupuncture can help control the food craving and make one eat only as much as the body really needs to maintain a healthy life. If one is tired of taking pep pills that do not work, acupuncture is a much better alternative to losing weight.
