Acupuncture for Weight Loss Works. But it’s not a magic bullet, a cure-all, one needle wonder as some claim it to be. However, acupuncture for weight loss has been shown to increase weight loss. In fact in 2003 a study was published in the Journal of Medical Acupuncture that showed participants in a weight loss program lost over 3 times more weight than the control group. In addition a growing body of research supports the use of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for weight loss and weight control.
For instance, another study, this time published in 1998, by the University of Adelaide in Australia conclusively showed that 95% of its participants experienced a suppressed appetite using acupuncture. But having a lower appetite is just one of the many benefits.
Acupuncture for Weight Loss becasue in TCM, we view the body as on organic whole, each part contributing to the health of the other, and when an imbalance within the body occurs it creates imbalance and disharmony. If that imbalance caused affects the Spleen or the Liver, this can in turn lead to excess weight, and without treating this, the root of excess weight, it is unlikely a permanent solution to weight loss can be affected.
The spleen in TCM thinking is responsible for the proper functioning of the digestive system, ensuring that the food we eat is transformed into Qi — the vital substance of life. Symptoms such as fatigue, slow metabolism, water retention, loose stool, and feeling of heaviness all manifest when the Spleen isn’t functioning correctly. In addition undigested food can give rise to what we call Phlegm and Dampness – a physical manifestation of which is body fat.
The Liver in contrast is in charge of keeping our lives and our body’s running smoothly. Along with this and many other functions, mostly to do with our blood it produces digestive enzymes that support the function of the digestive system. The Liver is very much affected by stress, and in the current economic and social environments we find ourselves in, stress is all too common.
This stress prevents the Liver from performing it’s function and the smooth flow of the body, the blood and the digestive system is interrupted, leading to stagnation, a decrease in metabolism, and an increase in emotional sensitivity which all too often triggers our cravings for poor food choices. Acupuncture for Weight Loss resolves these problems and helps you take permenant control of your weight.
Of course this is a very simple overview of just some of the many facets that may be preventing your weight loss and the management of you weight. I know, I’ve struggled with my weight, ballooning as high as 190lbs at 25% body fat with a 41” waist and in 6 weeks was at 11% body fat with a 31” waist, using Acupuncture for Weight Loss and the dietary and exercise techniques I teach.
Here at the Meridian Acupuncture Clinic, I have devised and designed a unique program, truly unlike anything else in the world. The results are nothing short of breath taking. I’ve experienced them first hand. But let me give you some more examples –
In Just 1 Week one participant
In 4 weeks one participant
In 8 Weeks One patient…
Compared to other leading weight loss programs that produce about 0.5% Body Fat loss at best per week, my program is over 3 times faster. Not only that, but my clients spend less that 20 MINUTES a week training. Acupuncture for Weight Loss works, and it works over 3 times faster than any other system out there.

Here’s just one from the hundreds of testimonials I’ve received –
The following testimonial is from one of my earliest weight loss patients – her results were spectacular.
Total Fat Loss – 26.4lbs. Total % loss 16%, Total waist inches lost – 11.3”
I first started the “Program” on 7/01/09, to lose weight, a stone I hoped if not more. I have benefitted greatly both from the Acupuncture treatments and the nutrition program. I lost a stone in weight with such ease it amazes me. I have learnt a great deal from program and am still learning. I enjoy reading the books and the audio cd’s are very helpful.
Paul’s professionalism, friendliness, guidance and humor made it easy to adhere to the program, and I looked forward each week to the treatments. I would certainly recommend Paul and his nutrition program to others, not just those wishing to lose weight but to anyone who wants to feel good.
