4 Alternative Therapies for Weight Loss

Sharing is caring!


There's a plethora of ways to lose weight: Low-cal, low-fat, low-carb — you name it, you’ve tried it. You’ve exhausted every option from the Mediterranean Diet to the Dash Diet and you probably couldn't get it to work for you long term.  However there is hope.

There's lots of alternative therapies out there to try and help you lose weight.

Here are the top 4 Alternative Therapies to Help you Lose Weight

1. Hypnosis

How does it work?

The term hypnosis comes from the Greek word that means “to sleep.” When used for medical reasons, specially trained clinical hypnotists use techniques to put people into a relaxed state of mind in order to reach their subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind is where all your 'life programs' are kept from your beliefs to your values.

When the hypnotist reaches the subconscious mind they can then give you suggestions in order to help you lose weight by giving you motivation, putting you off certain foods and giving you more control over your urges.

2. Acupuncture

How does it work?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing method based on teachings that “qi,” or energy, circulates through the body along 14 meridians, which roughly correspond to the body’s organs. Acupuncture’s underlying theory is that blockages in this energy flow cause imbalances that materialize as health problems such as being overweight. Acupuncture main aim is to restore the bodies energy balance.

Acupuncture practitioners insert thin metal needles into the skin at strategic points to stimulate the tissues and break up blockages in the energy flow.

3. Acupressure

How does it work?

The method behind traditional Chinese acupressure is to place firm pressure on several points of your body to ease medical conditions. Many people have used acupressure for weight loss by finding points on the body that can relieve pressure on the digestive system. Learning how to use acupressure for weight loss, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise, can help you reach your fitness goals.

4. Ayurveda

How does it work?

As we grow older, it can be extremely challenging to lose fat just through diet and exercise. To really fight that stubborn fat, the ancient medical system of India, known as ayurveda, uses age-old techniques that target the exercise-resistant fat by igniting your digestive fire. This is the biggest difference between ayurvedic weight loss and techniques and more conventional Western methods – ayurveda focuses on why your fat cells are getting bigger and gives you solutions that work long term. These techniques have worked for thousands of years and can be performed on a daily basis.
