Weight loss is often difficult because many people who need to lose weight have trouble controlling what they eat. Eating less can help with significant weight loss, but that is difficult to do when the body still feels hungry throughout the day. The hungry feeling is Ghrelin, which is a hormone produced in the body to help signal an empty stomach. Auriculotherapy helps to suppress the production of Ghrelin, which means the body won’t get the signal that it’s hungry as quickly after meal. This allows the patient to feel full longer, which means they eat less and can lose the weight they want to lose.
