Is losing weight or lowering stress levels part of your New Year’s Resolution Goals?
Check out how Science shows ways that Acupuncture can help keep you on your path!
Tell me, how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Hopefully quite well! Sometimes we do need a little help sustaining our goals though. In fact, according to a recent study when individuals have support with their resolutions, they are more successful in sustaining their goals even after one full year.
Yes, acupuncture can help with achieving the new goals we set for ourselves!
Losing weight, physical health and improving eating habits are the top three New Year’s resolutions. Amping up or starting a new workout, beginning a new diet, or refining our diet are common actions taken when trying to improve these habits. Acupuncture has been shown to help in many areas when it comes to losing weight including increasing energy and curbing cravings. For many, this is huge.
Acupuncture can also help balance hormones. Hormonal imbalances can lead people to eat more than they should and a lot of the things they shouldn’t, like sugary treats. Adding regular acupuncture treatments to proper diet and exercise can greatly increase the likelihood the weight will slowly come off, which is exactly how it should be approached.
When amping up your workouts or starting a new workout program muscles can become sore or overworked. This is another area where acupuncture can help. Relieving pain and muscle spasms is the most common reason people go to see an acupuncturist. Unfortunately, it is usually after they have tried everything else without success. Why not avoid the middleperson and just go straight to the source? Acupuncture is great for helping relieve pain and spasms, which will allow you to return to the gym more often, thus helping with resolution number one, losing weight.
Finally, regular acupuncture treatments can help relieve stress. According to a study out of the University of Scranton high stress levels are one of the top three reasons why people who make New Year’s resolutions let their resolutions slip. Moreover, many studies have been conducted on the connection between stress and its negative effect on health and wellness. Acupuncture is a wonderful way to relax and unwind and numerous studies have shown acupuncture can not only decrease stress and anxiety, but it can also lower blood pressure. For those who are on blood pressure regulating medications, this can be a great adjunctive therapy that can ultimately lead to taking less medications or even being able to stop them altogether.
Acupuncture is not a trendy weight loss and stress relief fad; it is a scientific evidence based health care system.
Acupuncture helps get to the root of what is causing your concerns to help you achieve the balance you are looking for.
So don’t forget to include regular acupuncture treatments as a part of sustaining your New Year resolution goals. You might just be surprised how much easier it is to keep resolutions and achieve your goals!
