Principles of acupuncture for weight loss

Acupuncture for weight loss is to adjust the functions of the two systems of hypothalamic‐

pituitary‐adrenal cortex and sympathetic adrenal medulla by stimulating the meridians and

acupoints, accelerate the basal metabolic rate, thus promoting fat metabolism, increasing heat production and consuming the accumulated fat. Then adjust, improve and repair the body's own balance.

First, weight loss through acupuncture can effectively regulate the process of lipid metabolism. The lipid peroxide in the body of obese patients is higher than the normal value. After acupuncture opens the body's weight loss point, the content of lipid peroxide in the body can be reduced, and the metabolism of fat can be accelerated, so as to achieve the purpose of weight loss.

Second, it can correct the abnormal appetite of the patient, and through the regulation of the nervous system, it can inhibit the excessive secretion of stomach acid, and achieve the purpose of not being weak and not hungry. After acupuncture, the emptying of the stomach slows down, the stomach is not empty, naturally there is a feeling of fullness, you can not want to eat too much.

The third is to effectively regulate endocrine disorders. Obesity patients have a very high

incidence of endocrine disorders, why women who have children will gain weight, not only

excess nutrition, but also after giving birth to children to break her endocrine balance, causing weight gain, women to menopause, endocrine disorders also cause weight gain. Adjusting the two systems of "hypothalamic pituitary adrenal cortex" and "sympathetic adrenal cortex" can correct endocrine disorders and accelerate fat metabolism when using acupuncture to lose weight, so as to achieve the purpose of losing weight.
