Acupuncture treatments for weight loss can be used to have an influence on the “hunger” hormones which are the leptin and ghrelin. The Leptin is a hormone that is made by fat cells and decreases your appetite.
The second, Gherlin is a hormone that increases appetite and plays a significant role in the body’s weight gain. Acupuncture has shown to increase ghrelin while decreasing leptin – this effect can help curb an individual’s appetite.
Acupuncture is said to aid in weight loss because of the principals that it can help manage weight by curbing appetite and cravings. Acupuncture can also help boost the body’s metabolism, improve digestion and regulate obesity-related hormones. Acupuncture can help strengthen the function of the liver which produces many chemicals that are critical for digestion and the processing of nutrients and the breakdown of fats.
