Acupuncture can help individuals struggling with weight loss issues and obesity. It must be used as an adjunct therapy alongside proper diet and exercise. Acupuncture is extremely helpful for those struggling with obesity because the treatment releases endorphins that have a calming effect, making it easier for weight loss patients to handle the stress, frustration, and anxiety that may derail dieting attempts or lead to overeating and bingeing. Endorphins also have an effect on the digestive and hormonal systems, and can rebalance systems that are running too slowly (such as metabolism).
