Q: How can I lose my weight?

A: An ideal way is to try conventional techniques such as exercising and dieting. If it doesn't work, you can benefit from the advanced weight loss programs we offer at HealthQuest. Our program will be based on auricular therapy and dietary changes that address the root cause of weight gain, which is appetite.

Q: What is auricular therapy?

A: Also known as auriculotherapy, this is an alternative treatment modality to suppress the appetite. This six weeks program offered at our multi-specialty healthcare center in Brooklyn, New York helps to address the root cause of weight gain.

Q: What does the treatment involve?

A: Used to suppress appetite, this therapy involves electrical stimulation of the reflex points of the ear. This stimulation releases chemicals or endorphins that affect the digestive and hormonal systems of the body, minimizing cravings and controlling the appetite.

Q: Is the treatment painful?

A: This is a simple and painless procedure. Without surgery, medication or any other invasive procedures, the treatment helps to

  • Increase metabolism
  • Reduce food cravings and binge eating
  • Lose weight quickly and easily

Q: Is it the same as acupuncture?

A: Although not the same, auricular therapy is a form of acupuncture specifically targeting the ear.

Q: Will I be explained the treatment strategies before this therapy?

A: During the initial consultation that lasts approximately 1-2 hours with 5-6 follow-up treatments, our experienced weight loss physicians will examine your food diary and discuss the potential issues of certain food consumption and dispel common food myths. With reference to the latest information and studies, they educate you on all aspects of your own diet and help to set goals in terms of weight loss and general health.

They also provide a detailed explanation of the auriculotherapy treatment and how it naturally and non-pharmaceutically treats cravings and what the protocol and expectations will be over the next several weeks.
