Ear Staples - How Acupuncture Techniques Can Help With Weight Loss

Aug 18, 2007
The use of a procedure called ear stapling can help you with weight loss, according to various representatives and users. You can learn from both those who have gone through this procedure, as well as from those who would not do it. It is considered one procedure that can help weight loss in some people, in both men and women.

The use of ear staples involves a similar technique as does Chinese Acupuncture, which has been around for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture is a process that is becoming more and more widely acceptable in western countries such as the United States. When applying ear staples in the right spots on your ears it can relieve pressure points that can help decrease tension levels and stress, assist in curbing your appetite, and reduce (or eliminate in some cases) your desire to smoke.

Some that have undergone the ear staples procedure have encountered some complications. The most common is infections, similar to the kind that many people get when having a part of their body, such as the nose, ear (of course), belly button, or even a part of their personal anatomy pierced. There is always this risk when having your skin pierced in any way.

These staples that you get in your ears for weight loss are usually inserted by a representative and in one case costs about 65.00. The reason why these have to be removed by an acupuncture representative (or similar specialist) is because special tools are needed to remove them.

The general procedure for having Ear Staples is to wear the first set of staples for up to six months, and then have them removed for a week. Then, when the week is up, usually the staples are reinserted. The exact period of time that these staples are left in may not be the same every time, so you should consult your acupuncture specialist to find out more information about it. In fact, another source on the Internet suggests leaving them in for about 3-4 months as long as there is no sign of redness or swelling in your ear.

From one source, women are said to be able to lose between 2-5 pounds per week, while men are said to lose an average of 4-10 pounds per week. This same source says they have a 90-95% chance that it will work for you, and that there is a chance you can have it repositioned so it will work for you.

The staple that is used to complete the Ear Staple Procedure is a surgical steel type one, very similar to the type of metal that is used for ear piercing. Other risks to a person besides infection could be soreness in some people, and stinging while the piercing of the staples is taking place.

If you need more information about the effectiveness of ear stapling the best thing to do is to seek professional advice regarding ear stapling. Many people are for it, but some people think it is not a good idea because it has been known to cause pain in some people, and soreness in a persons jaw as well. However, if you contact a professional and ask as many questions as possible you will find the information you need regarding this procedure.

Remember that no diet plan or weight loss procedure is 100 percent effective. This means that you need to still have a regular diet and exercise program. Furthermore, changing your lifestyle, such as reducing the amount of caffeine and alcohol that you take in, and quitting smoking can help as well (even though smoking can cause weight gain your life usually depends upon you quitting).

If you follow the instructions that you are given when receiving your ear staplers, and before and after the procedure has taken place, you will have better chance of success at weight loss. Also, if you learn enough about this procedure ahead of time you will know exactly what the risks and benefits of this procedure will be to you.

The effects of receiving ear staples are different for everyone. Besides asking professionals about this procedure, you can also read more articles such as this one in order to learn more about this type of weight loss procedure.
