Weight Loss

Finding the best path can be difficult for those of us who want to lose weight or avoid weight gain. With so many special diets and fitness programs, how do you know if one is right for you?  It can be a struggle to balance all our responsibilities and find time to care for ourselves healthily. 

We know that dieting can be a real social downer. Food and alcohol are a real part of business and family gatherings. Our center has developed a plan that is “real world” sustainable.  Crash dieting and bingeing – that’s old news.

At the Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition, we look to serve the whole patient by providing weight loss treatments and nutritional counseling that will help you attain and maintain your healthy weight.

This is a multifaceted problem, and the solution involves diet, exercise, and stress-reduction techniques. Acupuncture, nutritional guidance, gastrointestinal analysis, b-12, lipotropic injections, and targeted supplementation are also beneficial tools in the battle to lose weight.

How Acupuncture Can Help

Acupuncture is not a panacea or a wonder cure for weight control. However, acupuncture effectively makes it easier to lose unwanted pounds and stay at your ideal weight.

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 willpower and metabolism to combat weight gain.

We also offer B-12 injections, as well as lipotropic formulations, to assist in burning fat and increasing metabolism.  B12 injections boost vitamin B12, which is crucial for maintaining the body's energy levels and metabolism. Lipotropics, conversely, are a combination of amino acids and B vitamins that help the body metabolize fat and prevent its accumulation.
