Why do we gain weight?
Today people are not doing enough exercises, eat lots of junk food and drink alcohols which are very high in calories. This results in lots of toxins building up in the body.
Because of the lack of nutrition and exercise this causes poor circulation of blood and energy then metabolism slows down. Slowed body metabolism fails to burn fat, so we gain weight. Chronic stress may lead to an increase in appetite—and an increase in cravings for unhealthy food. Slowly, over the course of several months or even a year, the weight gain may accumulate.

How Does Acupuncture Help With Weight Loss?
In order to achieve meaningful weight loss, lifestyle changes have to be made, and acupuncture can help people with this. People are often concerned about a lack of energy, increased stress levels, and difficulty coping with the pain that can occur when starting a new exercise regimen.
Acupuncture is helpful with weight loss as it increases a person’s energy levels, making you want to exercise. It also relieves the pain that you feel when exercising. It is also useful if there is a metabolic condition that results in weight gain, and it increases the body’s metabolism, reduces food cravings, and improves circulation all around the body.
Acupuncture tightens up flabby areas
More specifically, acupuncture has been found to reduce both weight and cholesterol levels by mobilizing energy stores. Studies have shown that people receiving acupuncture lost twice as much weight as those who were on a diet alone. In addition, it helps decrease levels of total cholesterols, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol.
Acupuncture also helps regulate sleep, which is also beneficial for weight loss. Regular sleeping patterns sustain the body throughout the day, help to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and allow the metabolism to find a balanced and steady rhythm.
