• Are you embarking on a renewed effort to reach your goal weight?
  • Are you having trouble attaining the results you think you should be seeing?
  • Do you think that your metabolism has slowed and become a hurdle in your weight loss efforts?

Losing weight is based on making sure you are expending more calories than you are consuming in the form of food. If you have been dieting and exercising, but don’t seem to be able to get the numbers on the scale to budge, it might be your metabolism that stands in your way. If your metabolism is slow for hormonal or other medical reasons, you will have trouble losing weight even if you do everything you know should be taking off the pounds. Dr. Oh, of the Newport Acupuncture Center, can create a customized plan for you to help you lose weight. This plan can include acupuncture, herbal remedies, and other services.

The Ancient Healing Art of Acupuncture Can Help You Lose Weight

Acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine that has concepts and practices that reach back more than 2,500 years. One lasting and practical practice is acupuncture. This is, in turn, based on the belief that a life force, known as Chi, runs through meridians, or energy channels in the body. Balancing your Chi through acupuncture can affect your energy levels. The meridians run through all your organs including the organs in charge of your metabolism. The system that regulates your metabolism is the endocrine system, which includes the hypothalamus, thyroid, adrenal glands, and the pancreas. By inserting needles at strategic points along the meridians, the Chi can be adjusted, and as it flows through these organs, your endocrine system, and your metabolism can be fine-tuned, which can help you reach your goal weight.

Another way your practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine can help your efforts to lose weight is by prescribing carefully chosen Chinese herbal remedies. Food is our first medicine, and by adding certain foods, avoiding others, and by supplementing your diet with herbal remedies, you can boost your weight-loss efforts.
