Ear Staples for weight loss?
I've been doing a lot of research into the Auriculo staple for weight loss. Anyone had experience with this? Or know someone who has?
This is based on accupunture points and a doctor will insert a small staple on the ear. From what I've read about 20% of people have excellent results, 60% lose about 1 -2 lbs. per week and the remaining 20% lose nothing.
Before you say it is a bunch of bunk read the study in the link. They came to the conclusion that there is something physiological with it, it is just not because you want it to work or believe that it will. People also did not regain the weight lost.
I am seriously considering having this done since I've had a impossible time trying to lose weight after being diagnosed as Hypothyroid. It is about $100. for both ears and that also includes adjustments and removal. You can leave these for 6 months. They also can put in staples to help you stop smoking. And yes, some people will get infections - these must be cleaned several times a day.
Here is a photo of what they look like:
