In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a poorly functioning digestive system is the root cause of problems such as constipation, bloating, acid reflux, bad breath and unwanted weight gain. Acupuncture gives an interesting perspective as to how organs work: not only do they have physiological functions, they also have emotional characteristics as well. And if left unaddressed, it can turn into a vicious cycle; digestive imbalances trigger feelings that cause you to eat more, thus worsening the problem. In TCM, Qi, or the body’s life force, courses through energy pathways throughout the body, which are also known as meridians. When an individual is unwell, the Qi is said to be out of balance, and specific points on the body considered to be connected to the meridians must be stimulated to correct the imbalance. Apart from regular auricular acupuncture treatments, studies have noted that patients wearing auricular acupuncture devices such as staples or beads experienced reduced food cravings.
Moreover, acupuncture also facilitates the quick release of neurotransmitters in the body, which may improve moods and reduce stress and depression,  and in turn help control food intake. Traditional Chinese Medicine, on the other hand, helps burn fat more effectively, slows down carbohydrate absorption, lowers blood pressure & cholesterol, and cleanses a fatty liver.


Side by side, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine will go a long way to help achieve weight loss goals.
When the spleen and stomach (the main organs associated with digestion) are not working in harmony which is manifested through feelings such as anxiety and overthinking, this affects your ability to metabolise food properly.
There are said to be 14 major meridians, which loosely translates  to the Western definition of organs. Acupuncture needles are then applied to these points to correct any Qi excesses or deficiencies. Common auricular points used in the treatment of obesity include Hunger and Stomach points (for satiety and fullness) and Shenmen (for sedation and pain relief). Adding spices such as cinnamon, ginger, peppermint, fennel, or licorice to your favourite cup of coffee or tea enhances digestion. Sustain Health’s highly qualified natural health practitioners can create a tailored treatment plan specific to your needs.
As a result, the body is not able to absorb the nutrients that it requires and it can’t fight substances it doesn’t need or that may even be harmful to your overall health.


Experts have theorised that stimulation of the auricular nerves inhibits hunger pangs and curbs appetite. Pause in between bites, chew slowly, and pay close attention to the texture and flavor of what’s going into your mouth. So aside from green leafy vegetables, add butternut squash, corn, yellow peppers, golden beets, and sweet potatoes to your menu. Transform your worries into a concrete action plan, even if it’s as simple as making a to-do list for the day. Sit down for each meal and stay away from distractions such as your laptop, TV, or smartphone.
