Is acupuncture for weight loss supported by any scientific evidence or is it nonsense? Is it worth trying?

Check the NIHACM: National Institute of Health for Complementary and Alternative Medicine database to read on the studies done on this, and associated studies. Acupuncture works on the meridian systems that are integrated with our body, and can work even on smoking cessation, through placement of needles or magnets in specific spots on the body. Give it a try and see if it helps you.

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. An imbalance of qi (too much, too little, or blocked flow) causes disease. To restore balance to the qi, an acupuncturist inserts needles at points along the meridians.

Does acupuncture for weight loss work?

Does acupuncture for weight loss work?

Yes: Ask my patients. I work mainly with an active duty military population who can loss their career if over-weight. I have quite a few patients whom I see weekly - who have lost between 25 to 40 pounds. But - you need to be physically active, ensure that calories burned exceed calories in and have a healthful lifestyle. The needles simply help to suppress appetite (esp. Junk carbohydrates).

Can acupuncture help with depression, weight loss and other things tell me about acupuncture?

Can acupuncture help with depression, weight loss and other things tell me about acupuncture?

It can help some: But not all. It is not covered by insurance. But when it works it is very effective treatment. It is sticking very fine needles that you can hardly feel into parts of the body that affect other parts of your body to make it feel better to put it simply. They stay there for a while then they are taken out.

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.

Is "magic slim" a safe drug for weight loss?

Is "magic slim" a safe drug for weight loss?

Internet garbage: There are no safe and effective supplements on the internet that help with weight loss and have been scientifically evaluated. We don't even know what's in them until people taking them start to get sick or die. You don't need weight loss, you need to learn how to eat and exercise properly for the rest of your life. Check w/registered dietitian, weight watchers or other good info sources.

How effective is the medi slim weight loss program?

How effective is the medi slim weight loss program?

Depends on You: The bottom line for any weight loss program is how well you can maintain that lifestyle. I don't like to put patients on a "diet", because that means sooner or later, the patient is "off the diet". I like to help patients learn how to live a healthy lifestyle which is enjoyable for the patient. That is the only way you will maintain results. See more at my website www. Jhsurgery. Com.

No: It's a total waste of money. Learn to eat and exercise properly for the rest of your life, to lose the weight and keep it off. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams.

I've been thinking about taking the weight loss drink mix called plexus slim. Is this a safe thing to do? They claim it's natural

I've been thinking about taking the weight loss drink mix called plexus slim. Is this a safe thing to do? They claim it's natural

Safe to try, however: Please be aware the term "natural" on a food label is meaningless- foods with gmo's ; toxic chemicals are often labelled natural! However, plexus slim is natural ; appears to be safe. However, there is little evidence it works- see http://supplement-geek. Com/plexus-slim-review-ingredients-side-effects/ the key to losing weight is never a supplement but diet ; exercise- see comment for my advice:.

What is good for weight loss... I'm currently taking slim fast shakes and eating no meat for 3 weeks now. Is this safe to do?

It is safe: But what you really need is a well-designed program of diet restriction, education, exercise and weight reduction that you can follow for the rest of your life. Check w/your physician and a good registered dietitian rather than relying on commercial products. Real food is cheaper and healthier.
