Acupuncture can be effective in helping with long-term weight loss. Retaining extra weight can be caused by many factors including hormonal imbalances, metabolic fluctuations, or improper dietary and physical activity habits. As previously noted by Dr. Oz, Acupuncture helps with weight control by regulating the hypothalamus which can control hunger, thirst, and balance hormones. Dr. Oz noted the ability of Acupuncture to influence the obesity hormones, which reduces fat storage and regulates metabolism.

Combined with a specialized dietary plan and physical activity regime, Acupuncture is effective in helping to shed the extra pounds. Besides, losing weight, patients report feeling more relaxed, sleeping better, and fewer cravings for sweet and salty foods.

Acupuncture is best used when complimenting a healthy lifestyle. Overall, it is effective in balancing hormones, regulating metabolism and decreasing stomach bloat, which makes patients feel much more motivated immediately.
