Have you been eating healthy, exercising and making lifestyle modifications with little to no results? A difficulty suppressing appetite is often part of the weight loss struggle. When your body senses a decreased amount of food, the stomach grumbling sets in. Appetite suppressants, whether prescribed or over-the-counter, can cause uncomfortable side effects. Don’t despair. Stimulating acupressure points on the ear can remedy the problem naturally.
A study published in Australian Family Physician determined frequent stimulation of specific points on the outer ear, “is an effective method of appetite suppression which leads to weight loss.” The sixty subjects were divided into two groups. The active group had magnetic balls (a metal version of ear seeds) attached to acupuncture points on the ear related to appetite. Researchers placed the magnets on the thumbs, where there are no acupuncture points, of individuals in the control group.
The pressure stimulates the auricular branch of the vagal nerve and increase serotonin levels, which have both been shown to boost the smooth muscle of the stomach leading to a decrease in appetite. The control group experienced no suppression in appetite and almost no weight loss. 95% of the active group noticed a decreased appetite and lost significantly more weight.
