It’s the beginning of a New Year and time to reflect on healthy changes to improve our overall wellness. Did you know that acupuncture could effectively assist you in sticking to some of the most common health and lifestyle resolutions?
Most common New Year’s heath goals and how acupuncture can help achieve them:
1.) Weight Management
Acupuncture has been shown to have an effect on the functions of the nervous system, endocrine system, digestive system and metabolism. It helps reduce food cravings and stress induced eating, and balance hormones in situations where there could be hormonal imbalance, such as post-partum, menopause, thyroid conditions or PCOS.
2.) Eliminate Stress
Stress is often the cause of illness and deterioration of the immune system. Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of acupuncture in treatment of stress, anxiety and high blood pressure, as well as secondary illness associated with these issues. (IBS, ulcers, migraines, etc.)
3.) Quit Smoking
The stress and anxiety that comes along with quitting smoking are most often what derails the quitting process. Acupuncture helps to reduce stress and anxiety, while curbing cravings as you quit. Acupuncture also stimulates cell repair and helps detox the body of nicotine.
4.) Pain Relief
Even the slightest pain can keep us from living life to the fullest. Acupuncture not only reduces or eliminates pain, but speeds up the healing process by increasing the circulation and blood flow to an injured area. Acupuncture has no side effects and can beneficially treat all types of pain, regardless of cause or location, and can often provide relief that can last for months.
5.) Get in Shape
On a physical level, acupuncture can relieve sore muscles, joint pain and even help with speeding up recovery time for injuries. These are the most common reasons that prevent us from sticking to a work out regiment. Another common reason for not sticking to an exercise regiment is lack of motivation. From an eastern medical standpoint, this lack of motivation is caused by energy being stuck in the body. Acupuncture balances out the flow of energy in our body and can improve the emotional aspect of sticking to a health/fitness regiment, as well.
