As I mentioned in the last blog post, obesity can cause lots of diseases such as Heart Disease, Stroke, Joint Disease, High Blood Sugar and High Blood Cholesterol and variety of other health issues. That’s why it’s very important to us to lose the excess weight. Acupuncture is the fastest and most convenient way of losing weight and it has been used for this reason for thousands of years and it has been proved to be very effective and safe.
How acupuncture reduces weight
The most significant benefit of using acupuncture for weight loss is that it naturally suppresses your appetite and increases your metabolism. By inserting needles into patient’s body we literally send messages to the brain to stop hunger and food cravings and bring the sense of satiation. There are certain points in our body that are linked to the specific parts of our brain, which are responsible for sense of hunger and our appetite. By stimulating these points we lighten up the centre of satiety in our brain. It works very easy and effective. It is amazing that these points are located in our legs and hands and ears but are directly linked to our brain.
Centre of satiety inside our brain
There is a gland inside our brain called Hypothalamus. It has lots of functions including producing substances, which regulate Thyroid, Ovaries and Adrenals and many other important organs in our body. Therefore, proper functioning of hypothalamus is very critical to our health.
Inner part of Hypothalamus is responsible for sense of satiety and the outer part is the one that produces sense of hunger. By inserting needles in patients’ legs and hands and ears we stimulate inner part of the Hypothalamus to create the sense of satiety for the patient. There are other points in our body, which can reduce the function of the outer part of the Hypothalamus and decrease the sense of hunger. Combination of stimulating the inner part and decreasing the function of the outer part of the Hypothalamus makes Acupuncture one of the fastest ways of reducing weight.
