Weight Management

There is a secret that “they” don’t want you to know about.. All diets work short term and none of them work long term. In five years 99% of people regain all the weight back and more. Not very encouraging, right?

 

Wrong!

 

Most of it is in the functioning of our brain.

 

Our cells demand nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and other co-factors and they send signals to our brain (brain stem or lizard brain) to triggers hunger, food obsession or food-seeking behavior, slowing down our metabolism if the demand not met.

 

In turn, our lizard brain triggers the monkey brain to desire food on an emotional level. It causes anxiety if we are lacking or missing it and pleasure and reward when we do get it. A surge of dopamine, doesn’t help, which only reinforces such “addiction”.

 

Acupuncture and Auricular acupuncture and change the pattern of the way lizard and monkey brains interact. It can create new patterns that are healthy and not lack or scarce oriented. Together with a balanced nutritional plan (provided) and focus on healthy, whole foods, weight loss is just short of guarantee.
