How does Acupuncture Effect Your Mood?
Did you know that a foul mood or a short temper can be a consequence of chronic stress in your life? Over time, these emotions can progress into more emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression as well as other health conditions such as digestive problems, trouble sleeping, and the tendency to get sick more frequently.
Acupuncture increases endorphin, dopamine, and norepinephrine levels, which produces a positive mood state. It also helps regulate the autonomic nervous system to help counter the chronic stress we all feel in life.
Within acupuncture theory, emotional disorders can be associated with a number of different patterns of disharmony; however, anger, irritability, and frustration are all signs that our liver is not functioning as well as it should be. Using acupuncture, nutrition, and sometimes herbal formulas can help the liver function better, which can evoke an overall feeling of wellbeing.
Energy and Acupuncture
If you feel tired and drained, you are not alone. “Lack of energy” is one of the top five complaints that doctors hear in their offices.
When the ‘battery’ is running low, it puts all the organs and systems of the body at risk of not having enough energy to adequately perform their jobs. However, when it is full, this helps ensure that all the processes needed to sustain life can carry on, including the manufacture and usage of endorphins.
Acupuncture help the organs function better by bringing efficient blow flow and what acupuncturist call Qi(energy) to allow the organs to naturally function on a more optimal level. Acupuncture is sought after by many due to its ability to increase energy and induce clearer thinking.
At Balance Point, we know that weight loss is a primary concern for many people, and while we are able to help them with weight, it’s a multifactorial approach. In order to lose the weight ,we must first optimize the individuals mood and energy levels. This approach will help patients to lose weight, as well as maintain the weight loss.
In addition to acupuncture, many people can benefit immensely from injections. There are of course numerous combinations and select nutrients to help with various conditions, but when it comes to weight loss, the most effective combinations are listed below.
Injections for Weight Loss and Energy
Lipo-Mino Mix starts with a special lipotropics fat burning combination of methionine, inositol, choline, carnitine and B12. Each of these ingredients helps the body convert fat into energy and are also powerful antioxidants. In addition to the Lipotropics blend, Lipo-Mino also contains a mixture of B vitamins which further help to facilitate fat loss and increase energy. The formula is then completed by adding ingredients to reduce appetite, build muscle and promote a healthy immune system.
Balance Point also provides high-quality probiotics for weight loss and overall health.
