Obesity is always been a great problem for everyone who are suffering from it. Many treatments for obesity had ended up in disappointment. Do you believe that treatment on your ear can reduce your overweight? Do you still believe and want to know more about it?
Yes, the new methodology of treatment called ear acupuncture can help reduce your excess weight.
Early during 1956, it was first used by Dr. Paul Nogier in France. He put forwarded this method of treatment after he observed that the patients with backache are been cured after they received a burn on the ear. This made him to begin the research and come to a conclusion that ear acupuncture is the best way to lose weight. He began his treatments to people by mapping the ear and pinpointing the spots that actively correlate to various organs and systems of our body.
The concept behind the ear acupuncture theory is the outer ear represents the whole parts of the body. The ear acupuncture treatment is divided into two parts as single point treatment and five point treatment.
The single point treatment requires a single needle been inserted to the ear part which represents the hunger and appetite. The five point treatment involves stimulating the five parts of the organ. This method involves inserting five needles to the key points of the ear which react simultaneously to reduce the over fat in the body. It is also been reported by the scientist that it is better to use five point treatment if the patients are suffering from central obesity.
A study was carried over by the researchers to find which is the best treatment to reduce the body weight. They selected people who were suffering from obesity and divided into equal groups and started the treatment.
One group was given single point treatment whereas the other group underwent five point treatment and the other group of people were given a sham treatment. A single needle was inserted to the point of the ear which stimulated the hunger and appetite and it was carried over for a period of 8 weeks after which the patients were instructed to carry a dietic structure of food for some days. On the other hand patients who were under the observation for five point treatment where inserted with needle in the five parts of the ear which represents the organs of the body such as stomach, spleen, hunger, endocrine, shen-men. Even this was carried out for the same 8 weeks period of time and was given a dietic structure to follow.
All the three groups were informed not to do any exercise and was advised strictly to follow the dietic structure
At the start of the treatment and the end of the treatment the following were measured such as Blood pressure, waist circumference, body mass index, body fat mass and percentage of body fat.
Though at the day of result only few people were eligible as the other didn’t follow the diet properly.
It was observed that there was a huge difference in the BMI of the five point treatment group having 6.1% of reduction in weight loss and the single point treatment group as 5.7%.of reduction in weight loss while the sham treatment group didn’t find any weight loss .
The researchers also noticed that the blood pressure remained the same for all the three groups.
Thus the researchers concluded that the ear acupuncture helps a lot to reduce the body weight than compare to other treatments. And among the ear acupuncture treatment the five point treatment is better than single point as it gave the best results comparatively to lose weight.
