Acupuncture for Weight Loss

I love it when research supports alternative medicine! A study published in the journal Acupuncture in Medicine was reported in Men’s Health magazine showing a clinically significant reduction in weight and BMI. The participants were controlled with the same diet and exercise regimen for 8 weeks. The group that received a specific 5-point acupuncture protocol showed a 6% greater reduction in weight and BMI.

Another researcher compiled a meta-analysis of randomized controlled studies, the overall results of which showed that acupuncture: “significantly enhances the efficacy of integrated programs resulting in enhanced loss of body fat… helps to suppress “an excessive desire for food” and regulates bodily metabolism… significantly prevents weight rebounding.. [supports] abdominal adipose tissue reduction, BMI reduction and serum leptin level reduction…. and assists in cardiovascular disease treatment and prevention.”**
