Acupuncture for Weight Loss

Did you know that Acupuncture can help with weight loss?

Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss found treatments increased ghrelin, a hormone that controls the tendency to overeat, and also decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism.

The guiding principal is for acupuncture to power up any other weight control strategy by curbing appetite, quelling cravings, boosting metabolism, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used. It also strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients, breaking down fats. Acupuncture may also increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach to help people know that they are full.

Along with doing Acupuncture, we have found and love,- Healthy for Life’s Herbal Cleanse for daily detoxification.

The presence of numerous carcinogens and toxins in our food, water and air make it essential that we reduce the toxic levels in our bodies so that we are not making ourselves more prone to health problems.

If you are interested in an Acupuncture treatment and/or the Herbal Cleanse, please let me know. We would love to help you with all your health goals!

"My treatment was awesome, my right ankle/foot sprain due to participating in a "MUD RUN".  After laser treatment, my bruising was gone in one week.  Full motion and I don't need to favor it weight wise.  Great Treatment, I will be back."
