Obesity, Excess Weight and Electro-Acupuncture
Electro-Acupuncture Treatment of Obesity
Russian scientists have discovered that acupuncture can help children suffering from constitutional exogenous obesity.
Electroacupuncture was given to 62 children with constitutional exogenic obesity and the children's body mass and lipid metabolism were monitored both before and after the treatment.
Reduction of Body Mass Index and Fat
The treatment was found to have a beneficial effect; not only did the children report feeling better within themselves, but tests showed that the treatment led to body mass reduction and decrease of fatty tissue content, increased performance abilities, recovery of cardiovascular function, and normalization of blood serum lipids.
The results were so significant that the researchers recommended that acupuncture treatment should be utilised for children with constitutional exogenic obesity.
