There can be many reasons why an individual can gain weight some of these may include stress, an imbalance or shift in hormones, a slower metabolism, overeating, poor nutrition, or lack of exercise.
Acupuncture should not be used to cure all weight issues but it can be effective in helping someone with their initial loss and also weight loss maintenance but only in the instance that the individual is willing and able to make changes that they need to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
Acupuncture treatments for weight loss can be used to have an influence on the “hunger” hormones which are leptin and ghrelin. 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.
What Should I do to help with Weight Loss?
You should add these principles into your daily living. Exercise, Hydration, Sleep, and Diet are also very important factors that play a role in the weight loss process while being treated for Acupuncture.
- Exercise – be active. You should strive for some sort of physical activity for an hour each day. A great suggestion is to find a partner so you can hold one another accountable for workouts – this makes it more fun.
- Hydration is key. Make sure you drink plenty of water, this will keep you hydrated, energetic, and trick your brain into thinking you are full.
- Rest – Make sure you are getting a proper amount of sleep. Sleep is important to make sure your body is getting enough rest.
- Eating well is also important for your weight loss success. When you eat balanced, whole foods that are fresh. Eating foods with a higher vibration will increase yours. By raising the vibration of the body, fungi, viruses, disease, and bad bacteria cannot survive.

“I can truly say Monmouth Pain took me out of my serious pain and let me live my life again! I had been to 3 orthopedic surgeons who ALL told me I needed knee replacements. I came into Monmouth Pain after seeing an ad in the newspaper. I met with Dr. Dandrea at the time and started my treatments which really helped! I then started Acupuncture down the line, which I was very skeptical about. I can tell you now that if I miss a treatment, I feel it! I can truly say Monmouth Pain took me out of my serious pain and let me live my life again!”

“I truly enjoy it which means it must be working.” I began acupuncture in January of 2014 and truly take advantage of the relaxation I gain from my treatments. Relaxation is hard for me to obtain outside of acupuncture so the time that I have for myself during treatment is amazing. I truly enjoy it which means it must be working.
