How Does Acupuncture Help in Weight Loss?
Acupuncture can help with weight loss by regulating neuroendocrine function, improving the metabolism, optimizing digestion, reducing inflammation, suppressing the appetite, lessening water retention and optimizing other bodily functions that are related to obesity and weight loss.
Leptin and ghrelin are the hunger hormones in the body; ghrelin tells the body that it is hungry, while leptin tells the body that it is full. Acupuncture can modulate the levels of these hormones to reduce appetite and curb overeating and snacking habits.
Acupuncture will improve the function of the digestive system, which can increase the number of nutrients absorbed by the body. By improving digestion and gut health, one can address symptoms such as constipation and bloating, as well as other gastrointestinal issues that lead to weight gain.
Inflammation in the gut, muscles and other tissues of the body can slow down the metabolism which can strain the immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. By modulating inflammation and regulating the immune response of the body, acupuncture for weight loss can reduce oxidative stress and optimize weight loss.
Reduces Fluid Retention
By stimulating the endocrine system, acupuncture is able to help reduce fluid retention in the body.
When hormone levels are out of balance, many body systems can be negatively impacted, from digestion and cognition to healing and immune function. Acupuncture, along with Chinese herbs and supplements, is highly effective in balancing hormone levels, particularly for perimenopausal women who have experienced abdominal weight gain.
Acupuncture is able to stimulate the thyroid and pituitary glands, increasing baseline metabolism. Treatments will improve fat-burning, making exercise and daily activities more effective, resulting in more calories burned and potential weight loss.
Acupuncture is able to induce the release of endorphins in the body, which are feel-good hormones that can reduce stress and anxiety. Many people overeat when they have high levels of stress hormones or are feeling overwhelmed. Acupuncture can help to eliminate those urges.
