In recent years, more and more people use acupuncture to lose weight. Many people don't actually know acupuncture can help to lose weight. So, is acupuncture effective for weight loss? What are the precautions for acupuncture weight loss? To this end, we will introduce to you the traditional treatments of acupuncture and moxibustion and how they can help in weight reduction.

The principle and effect of acupuncture for weight loss

No obvious side effects have been found in traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture for weight loss. Acupuncture and moxibustion treatments mainly stimulate the acupuncture points of the human body, thereby promoting body metabolism, regulating body functions, and hence achieving effective weight loss. In addition to the effect of weight loss, acupuncture is very helpful for irregular menstruation, insomnia, stomach upset, and infertility.

Why is acupuncture effective for weight loss?

  1. Regulate gastrointestinal function: The comprehensive effect of gastrointestinal conditioning is mostly reflected in the two changes of decreased appetite and smooth stool. We know that many reasons for obesity are because of too much food intake, so the conditioning of gastrointestinal function has a great effect on weight loss. "I don't want to eat so much". This is a phenomenon that many people who have undergone acupuncture to lose weight can observe. Because acupuncture can prolong the time of gastric emptying, it can suppress or even decrease the originally hyperactive appetite. In addition, it can improve intestinal function. For example, some people with constipation have enhanced intestinal peristalsis and enhanced excretion during the process of acupuncture to lose weight. This is the result of acupuncture enhancing the intestinal effect.

  2. Improve body metabolism: Acupuncture can enhance the metabolism of the body which includes sugar metabolism and fat metabolism, etc. Acupuncture can enhance the speed of metabolism, increase the body's burning of fat, and thus achieve the purpose of losing weight. In addition, many obese people have metabolic dysfunction, some are fat metabolism disorders, and some are glucose metabolism disorders. During the acupuncture process, you can see the improvement of metabolisms, such as patients with diabetes and hyperlipidemia, the condition can often be adjusted during the acupuncture process.

  3. Improve the function of the endocrine system: Many obesity occurs in the stages of adolescence, postpartum, and menopause, especially for women, these stages are periods of severe endocrine changes. In the process of acupuncture to lose weight, many women who are accompanied by irregular menstruation, amenorrhea and other symptoms did not treat these symptoms during the weight loss process, but often acupuncture can improve the original symptoms. This is all endocrine. get improved results.

Precautions for acupuncture to lose weight

  1. Acupuncture to lose weight is a gradual process. It is unrealistic to expect that a few needles will be able to become slim. At the same time as acupuncture and moxibustion, it is necessary to develop good living and eating habits in order to effectively prevent rebound.

  2. During the acupuncture weight loss treatment, there may be anorexia, thirst, increased bowel movements, fatigue and other reactions, which are all normal phenomena. Through acupuncture treatment, the internal functions of the body are constantly adjusted, which accelerates metabolism and consumes energy. When the body re-establishes balance, these symptoms disappear. If the patient experiences dizziness, pain, nausea and other symptoms during acupuncture, it is an adverse reaction of acupuncture, and the treatment should be interrupted immediately to prevent accidents.

  3. Increasing fat burning is the result of acupuncture weight reduction. However, strenuous exercise is not advocated, and endurance and lasting exercise are advocated. For patients with abdominal obesity, abdominal breathing and abdominal pressing activities for about 20 minutes before going to bed are very beneficial to reduce abdominal fat and laxative.

  4. In order to lose weight with acupuncture, you should also pay attention to controlling your diet. During the acupuncture process, overeating and eating indiscriminately will not achieve the goal of losing weight. But diet control is by no means equal to "starvation therapy" and does not advocate excessive dieting.

  5. Acupuncture and moxibustion in traditional Chinese medicine is a profound science. Patients can achieve weight loss only if they go to a regular weight loss clinic to receive a plan that has no side effects but also carries out overall adjustment and treatment.
