Different Reasons Of Weight Gain And How Acupuncture Can Help To Reduce It?

Different Reasons Of Weight Gain And How Acupuncture Can Help To Reduce It? | Health | Scoop.it

Gaining weight is a common phenomenon for women over 30 years of age. Although becoming overweight or obese is not a great thing to experience, many women do not exactly know how to lose it. Many people take weight loss pills for burning fat but they are not good to take.

 

Some think dieting is enough whereas many other people think exercising, walking and running to be the only solutions for losing weight. Dieting and exercising actually goes together. None can reduce fat or weight without doing both these things- it is true but this is also true that in modern scenario working ladies hardly get time to walk or go to the gym for burning their unwanted fats. For all of them who do not like to visit gym or do not get time for exercise they can go for a substitute solution called acupuncture.

 

Any good weight loss process starts with a good digestive system. If you are having problems regarding constipation, tiredness or bloating it is the sign that your digestive system is not working properly. It becomes essential to work on the specific acupuncture points. Working on the specific acupuncture points on women body showed a positive impact on womens health in Northern Beaches, Australia.

 

Here I have discussed about the different reasons of weight gain and how acupuncture can help in reducing it and make you look slim and fit.

Acupuncture: The Therapeutic Method for Pain Relief

Acupuncture: The Therapeutic Method for Pain Relief | Health | Scoop.it

 

Acupuncture is getting huge acceptance in the mainstream medication in Northern Beaches. It is already used in a routine way in several emergency departments of Northern Beaches and is presently going through a trial in a few hospitals for alleviating pain like back pain, migraines and ankle sprain.

Researches in the UK have mapped the effect of acupuncture on the brain and have found out that the therapeutic method changes some neural structures, deactivating a few areas in brain that is associated with processing of pain. What I have found out is that people who have come to into the emergency department in pain and tried out acupuncture, have been relieved of pain in a very short span of time.

This treatment is even safe when combined with most of the treatments and conventional drugs. It has no side effects.

Today, acupuncture is the most accepted therapeutic treatment in Northern Beaches.

In Comparison to Men Women Suffer More from Depression

In Comparison to Men Women Suffer More from Depression | Health | Scoop.it

There are many psychological differences between males and females. The main difference, which has tuned up more reliably, is prevalence of depression more among women than men. Until the teens, both men and women develop symptoms of depression with same frequency. In fact, boys happen to be more depressed in that stage but once the stage of puberty hits, both of the genders become susceptible to depression. However, females become twice as susceptible to men.

 

What’s rather interesting is, the gender difference in depression starts winding down among those in their fifties. Depression even seems to be especially a disorder for women at the time of their childbearing stage.
