Accupuncture is great for a whole host of problems, even including belly fat! A handful of needles can help you drop a whole pants size, say researchers at Kyung Hee University and so many Health Care Plans include acupuncture, physical fitness and nutritionists as part of the plan right now. The study claims that individuals who received acupuncture for 8 weeks saw a 6 percent reduction in BMI, a smaller waist circumference and a loss in overall body fat!! As it happens, stimulating specific points can help suppress appetite and increase metabolism. The needles were placed into points on the ear thought to correspond to hunger and activity in the stomach, spleen and endocrine system.
I actually went to an accupuncturist in order to get fit for my College Reunion. She was located in Mamaroneck and placed balls behind my ears. I was told to “rub my balls” at certain points in the day to suppress my appetite. For five weeks I lived on a limited amount of fruits, vegetables and very little dairy (only in the form of milk.) It worked like a charm! If you have a very special event like a wedding, reunion, stage appearance, and need to get “red carpet ready” this process works. Following the regimen for up to 3 months can make a tremendous difference but it is not practical for everyday life in general.
