There’s no denying the fact that obesity rates have reached epidemic proportions. According to data from the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one third of all adults in the U.S. are classified as being “obese.” Obesity is a dangerous and often life-threatening disease that increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer, but hope might be right around the corner in the form of acupuncture for obesity and weight loss.
Losing weight isn’t always an easy task. Even if you watch what you eat and exercise on a regular basis, you may still have trouble shedding those unwanted pounds. A large factor in determining a person’s weight is genetics, which is completely out of the individual’s control. If your genetics say you are predisposed to obesity, you’ll have a harder time losing weight, and even harder time maintaining that weight, than someone who isn’t predisposed to obesity.
Can acupuncture and Acupuncture Boca Raton really help you lose weight? As you may already know, acupuncture is form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves the placement of thin needles in specific areas of the body. The general belief is that places these needles in “acupuncture points” will stimulate the body’s self-healing process while correcting blockages of life force (known as Qi). This powerhouse combination is believed to treat a wide range of physical and mental disorders, including obesity.
