Weight Loss

 

If you struggle with your weight you’re not Alone

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), It is estimated that over 1 billion adults are overweight, and at least 300 million are clinically obese.

In fact overweight people spend billions of dollars annually on weight loss products, but obesity is still on the rise. People turn to fad diets, diet pills, extreme fasting or even drastic surgical measures in an  attempt to manage their weight.

Unfortunately excess weight isn’t just a cosmetic issue. It’s a risk factor for many health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Good news is that maintaining a healthy weight can reduce these risks and it’s never too late.

Quick Fact:

People seeking to take control of their weight concerns are turning to acupuncture as a natural and effective way to approach weight loss.

Acupuncture works to control weight on various levels.

  • Releases Endorphins- Cravings in the body are often due to a lack of endorphins. Acupuncture assists to balance out the cravings by helping the body to release endorphins
  • Reduce Stress- The stress hormones cortisol can also be neutralized through the release of endorphins
  • Support Digestion- Acupuncture can support the body to generate an effective digestive process

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine takes a holistic, or whole-body approach to health. There are many reasons why people find it difficult to lose weight. Here at  Acu-Fit we can perform diagnostic exams to uncover the root causes or imbalances that have affected your weight.

As your Acupuncturist, Nutrition consultant and Fitness coach, we will also take into consideration other factors that may have led to weight gain, such as lifestyle, emotional and mental well-being. By taking your whole self into account, together we can get to the root of your health concerns, rather than treating the symptoms.

As you can see throughout this website, we support your path toward a healthier you!
