For those of us who want to lose weight or simply avoid weight gain, finding the best path can be difficult. With so many special diets and fitness programs out there, how do you know if one is right for you? We also struggle to balance all our responsibilities and find time to take care of ourselves in a healthful way.
At the Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition, we look to serve the whole patient by providing weight loss treatments, in addition to nutritional counseling, that will help you attain and maintain your healthy weight.
This is a multifaceted problem whose solution involves diet, exercise, and stress-reduction techniques. Acupuncture, Oriental medicine, and digestive-aid exercises are also beneficial tools in the battle to lose weight.
Acupuncture is not a panacea or a wonder cure for weight control. However, acupuncture is effective in making it easier to lose unwanted pounds and stay at your ideal weight, if you are willing to make lifestyle changes.
Acupuncture needles inserted into specific points on the body and in the ear release endorphins that have a calming and relaxing effect. This makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration, and anxiety that can trigger overeating and bingeing on fattening foods. Endorphins also affect the digestive and hormonal systems, so acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast or, in this case, too slow. With acupuncture, we can impact both willpower and metabolism to combat weight gain.
We also offer various B-12 injections, as well as lipotropic formulations, to assist in burning fat and increasing metabolism.
