In June 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) officially declared obesity as a disease on the basis that it has the typical signs, symptoms and morbidities that qualify it so.
This is an important declaration coming from the nation’s leading healthcare organization. It is hoping that this announcement will help contribute more to policy, research and treatment approaches to obesity which is the cause of serious health problems which include diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, depression, osteoarthritis and certain type of cancers. An AMA board member remarked that recognizing obesity as a disease will help change the way the medical community deals with this complex issue that affects about one in three Americans.
The wrong dietary habits and lack exercise are the two main reasons for obesity in Americans. Once declared overweight, most people find it difficult to go by treatment plans and dietary regimens. But, there is one effective non-invasive solution that is pain-free and medication-free and offers effective results – auricular therapy.
This treatment involves the application of very light electrical stimulation on specific nerve points on the outer ear (auricle) to disrupt food addiction. It works to control the appetite, calm the nervous system and strengthen will power. This remarkably effective weight loss program has minimal side effects.
Choose a professional healthcare center for your auricular therapy. This will ensure that you are provided with personalized treatment plan after an assessment of your health status. Results can be seen after just a few treatments. You would also benefit with guidance on dietary changes and regular exercise to help maintain your weight and fitness.
