Acupuncture (Definition)

Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Achieving the proper flow of qi is thought to create health and wellness. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to Chinese medicine, everything in nature has both yin and yang.

They stay there for a while then they are taken out. ...Read more

Is acupuncture helpful in losing weight?

Is acupuncture helpful in losing weight?

Probably not: If a person snacks or eats more when he is stressed out, then acupuncture might lower stress and decrease eating. If he is at the acupuncture clinic, then he is not at the grocery store, the bar, or the restaurant, so he may be eating fewer calories. However, if he eats the same or more calories after starting acupuncture as before, then he will probably have no weight change or get even heavier. ...Read more

Is it generally less difficult for a slimmer person to lose weight than someone overweight?

Somewhat: They're used to being slim, are probably more active so their metabolism is higher and they burn off more calories, and they're not as Insulin resistant as their obese counterparts, so they don't have to work as hard against their body's mechanisms to lose weight.
