Healthy Weight loss and Optimal health are more than just a result of what you eat and how much you exercise. Weight gain, fluctuations and difficulty losing weight may also be the result of genetics, hormone imbalances, chronic pain with mobility restrictions, illness or chronic disease, sluggish digestive functioning, food sensitivities and chronic inflammation. There are many weight loss programs, but few that truly offer a Holistic Strategy.
At Brisbane Livewell Clinics, Weight Loss Acupuncture can be used on its own or in combination with a weight-loss strategy. Studies have shown it helps curb cravings and control appetite whilst also addressing other underlying health concerns that may contribute to weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Studies also show that Acupuncture can provide relief for the impacts of stress on our physical and emotional wellbeing during our journey to Weight Loss. Headaches, sore muscles and difficulty sleeping is just what happens when you have a busy life, right? Wrong!
Most of us experience the symptoms of stress every day, but unfortunately, they’ve become such a ‘normal’ part of our lives that we’ve forgotten what life without the side effects of stress feels like.
Thankfully there’s a solution! Acupuncture can assist with relief from the added stress that Weight Loss may create. Acupuncture appears to be able to improve mood by increasing the release of neurotransmitters and suppress appetite by the serotonin and endorphin-induced decreases in stress and depression. In contrast, this effect was not seen by exercise and diet.
‘Fad’ diets are not only detrimental to your health, but the weight is often regained very quickly in the weeks to follow. When you restrict your body from essential nourishment, it goes into protection mode conserving everything you eat, which generally results in weight gain and problems losing weight in the future. Studies have shown that Acupuncture will support your Healthy Weight Loss by reducing your body’s inflammatory reaction, draining excess fluid and kick-starting your metabolism.
Naturopaths design our programs to help you lose weight and sustain a cleaner, healthier and happier you moving forward.
It’s time to be kind to yourself and support your Healthy Weight Loss with Acupuncture.
