How Auriculotherapy Can Help with Weight-Loss


Auriculotherapy is acupuncture of the ear and is used to help control and/or suppress addictive behaviors. There are specific points in the ear that can be stimulated through acupuncture therapy to help control a variety of behaviors and is used around the world to help people recover from addictions by relieving cravings. As a weight-loss therapy, Acu-Thin is side-effect-free and provides patients with a safe method of appetite suppression. Dr. Guerin and Gabriel are Acu-Thin certified acupuncturists are prepared to answer any questions you may have and help you determine if this is an appropriate treatment for you.

The Acu-Thin Program

Once you’ve decided to begin Acu-Thin treatment, our Westport chiropractor will help you develop a customized plan that is focused on achieving your specific goals. Though not necessary for every patient, in addition to auriculotherapy sessions, our Acu-Thin chiropractor can also help you begin the Acu-Thin diet to supplement your acupuncture treatments.

The Acu-Thin diet has three distinct stages:

  • Stage 1: In this phase, your diet includes egg-substitutes, low-fat cheeses, meat, fish, and vegetables. Though the most restrictive stage of the Acu-Thin diet, most people will only be at this stage for a single week.
  • Stage 2: Foods such as fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat milk are added back into your diet. Most people will be at this stage for one to two weeks, depending on their weight-loss plan.
  • Stage 3: The least restrictive phase; additional fruits and healthy carbs, such as whole grain bread, whole grain rice, and sweet potatoes, are reintroduced into your diet.

Furthermore, when appropriate, and as part of your Acu-Thin therapy, Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture also utilizes Acu-Thin ear patches and the Acu-Thin pen, which is an effective, needleless acupuncture method.
