Weight gain can occur due to a variety of causes, such as genetics, certain health conditions, and even stress. At Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Westport, CT, we help with weight loss and achieving your goals with Acu-Thin. Before scheduling your appointment, learn more about this treatment below:
What is Acu-Thin?
Acu-thin is a type of ear acupuncture, or Auriculotherapy, that helps suppress your appetite and assists in helping you meet your ideal weight. Treatments are typically performed with acupuncture needles. However, Acu-thin patches and an Acu thin pen may also be used. These treatments also rely on pressure rather than needles.
How Does Acu-Thin Work?
You may be wondering what your ear has to do with weight loss. It turns out that the ear, along with the foot, represents the entire body. You might also have heard of reflexology, which uses pressure points in the feet to treat a variety of conditions. Acu-thin works on a similar principle. Since the ear is connected to all of the body's systems, stimulating different points in the ear can provide various effects.
Reduces Cravings and Appetite
This treatment reduces cravings and your appetite, so you naturally eat less. It also reduces compulsive behaviors and can be an effective addiction treatment. Along with that, it will help decrease food cravings. Acu-thin reduces grehlin, which is the body's hunger hormone. Reduced grehlin levels mean that you won't be as hungry and will consume less calories.
Cortisol is the body's stress hormone. It also tells the body to store calories as fat, particularly belly fat. Our weight loss chiropractor also utilizes this treatment since it reduces cortisol and stress levels, which can lower the amount of fat your body stores. It also helps balance your hormones that can contribute to stress and weight gain.
A slow metabolism is often an issue when trying to lose weight. Generally, when you reduce your calorie intake, your metabolism naturally slows down. However, Acu-thin regulates your metabolism, so it helps you burn more calories and keeps your body in balance.
Reduces Fluid Retention
Fluid retention is often a component of excess weight. Acu-thin weight loss treatment reduces the amount of fluid your body retains, which can help you reach your desired weight.
