[ARTICLE] Want to Shed Some Pounds? Give Acupuncture a GO!
Filed Under: Acupuncture | Published: Jun 6, 2017 | Author: Pacific College of Oriental Medicine

Eastern medicine offers an alternative method to help those who are trying to slim down: acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that entails the insertion of very fine needles at specific locations in the body to treat and prevent different types of medical conditions. Acupuncture focuses on bringing back balance to the body and treating the root cause of a problem. Combining this form of alternative medicine with exercise can have tremendous results in the race to lose weight.

Acupuncture helps a person lose body fat by reducing appetite and thus reducing the calorie consumption by the body. On the other hand, it increases the metabolic rate of the body and aids in burning more calories. Acupuncture also stimulates the release of endorphins that help to reduce the body fat and insulin levels.

Ear acupuncture, known as auricular acupuncture, is most commonly used for weight loss.
