Acupuncture for Weight Gain

A person’s appetite can be rebalanced with the use of Acupuncture. Ancient Chinese medicine operates under the principle that a life force known as ‘Qi’ runs throughout the body on channels. These channels, or meridians, correspond to the various parts of the body. Acupuncture for weight gain generally concentrates on the stomach and spleen meridians in order to bring the body into a natural state of balance and regain normal appetite.

Chiropractic’s Role in the Weight Gain Process

Correct spinal alignment is essential for the health of the body; when the spine is misaligned (subluxated) a host of problems leading to weight loss can occur.

In any discussion of Chiropractic Care for weight gain, it’s important to remember that proper spinal alignment is tied directly to the health of the central nervous system. The central nervous system works closely with the endocrine system to regulate bodily functions and maintain balance. The endocrine system is responsible for the production of hormones, including those related to appetite and metabolism. Excessive or deficient amounts of certain hormones within the body can cause both weight gain and loss.

Chiropractic care ensures that the central nervous system and the endocrine system are working properly by addressing the health of the spine.
