As we already know, unlike other medicines, acupuncture is chemical free, and has zero side effects. There are many health related resolutions of yours which can be perfectly taken care by acupuncture.  We will discuss a few of the most common ones.

3 Areas to Achieve New Years Resolutions with Acupuncture

1. Losing weight
A common resolution men and women all around the globe make is losing weight. It is an important step in improving your appearance, and cannot happen overnight. There’s no magical flick of a wand to lose weight. It requires measures to be taken—realistic changes in your diet and physical activeness.

Ever thought acupuncture could help you achieve that desired weight? Well, it is a natural way to stimulate the hormones in your body and provide balance, so that to lose your extra pounds easily. Hormonal imbalance is the reason for obesity in many cases because gratuitous amount of hormones like “leptin” and “insulin” can lead to uncontrolled appetite. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture has been used for centuries to lower the levels of insulin and leptin, and provides hormonal stability. When there is no disparity of hormones in your body, the carbohydrates and fats will be digested efficiently. Thus, acupuncture can help you lose weight by improving functionality of your liver. It helps the liver to function properly, so that your food cravings are reduced.

Stress creates Food Cravings

Another reason for food craving is stress. Stress makes you reach out for high fat or sugar, diminishing your ability to limit your craving for food. Acupuncture is useful in releasing stress and providing mental calmness. Acupuncture is a safe way to increase your metabolism, which therefore improves the blood flow in your body and burns your fat. So, for a healthy weight loss program, try out acupuncture to yield positive results across various acupuncture clinics around the world, like the RiverWest Acupuncture team of professionals.

2. Overcoming depression and anxiety

Depression is a very difficult condition to understand and explain. The sufferers feel like they are on an uphill battle and there will never be any sign of victory. Depression is different for different people, and there’s no ‘one fits all’ explanation for it. When depressed you feel void of empathy, become antisocial and nothing in the world feels real or meaningful. The future feels inconceivable and you feel like an outsider in your own life. Depression actually is stripping off of your motivation due to negativity pertaining to the imbalance of neurotransmitters in your brain and spinal cord.

How do you deal with depression? This new year, spare your antidepressants and try out acupuncture to help you feel free of depressions. You can complement other therapies with acupuncture. No harmful chemicals. Just stimulation of specific points using needle and your body realizes it’s abilities once again. Acupuncture will enable the proper balance of hormones that affect the feelings of happiness and positivity. It helps your nervous system to soothe and relax. Acupuncture helps your brain release a neurotransmitter called Serotonin, which helps the person get freedom from depression or anxiety.

3. Help in Infertility issues

If you have been trying to conceive and are unsuccessful in your repeated attempts, you need not be disheartened. Here is another way to help you through the problem of infertility. Acupuncture can be a natural, affordable and non toxic way to improve your fertility. Many women in the West have started to try out this technique. The acupuncture needling stimulates the energy flow that increases healing and harmonization in the body. Acupuncture activates those points in the body that help in supporting the functioning of reproductive organs such as the follicular, ovulatory, and luteal phases of the menstrual cycles.   It does it in such a way that encourages the body for conception and pregnancy in a better manner.

Acupuncture not only prepares the body for conception, but also improve other health conditions that impede fertility. Such as;
