Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, Acupuncture Physician and Clinical Herbalist. Today, I will be showing you acupressure points to reduce appetite. So, first we're going to actually clean the ear with some alcohol so that it gives these vaccaria seeds here, little band-aid on them, the opportunity to stay on for a couple of days instead of falling off after a couple of hours. So, after this dries, I'm going to seed a couple of different points. Now, the first point that's really helpful in appetite control is located on the triggest of the ear. So, the triggest is this little pointy thing that kind of sticks out off the face and protects the ear cavity. So, I'm just going to place this right on the center and give some firm pressure. So, if you don't have these seeds at home, just pinching this area while you're having a craving will often, often help to reduce that craving. And then a couple other points that I always use with weight loss are Shen Men. So, Shen Men calms the nervous system 'cause a lot of times, overeating is due to being stressed out for anything like me and then, the endocrine point. So, if there's any hormonal involvement or issues with the thyroid or maybe you're going through hormonal change such as menopause and you've gained some weight, this point is also pretty effective. And then the mouth point. Just in case you have a bit of an oral fixation, the mouth point is helpful as it is constantly stimulated, so that actually helps to reduce cravings. The mouth point is located inside like almost in the opening of the ear, right there. Now, there are lots of other points that we can use depending on what other symptoms are presenting with your weight gain or out of control rapidness appetite. So, I encourage you to seek out your local acupuncture physician and find out which points are right for you as this can be as simple, simple and easy way to reduce appetite cravings. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure for appetite reduction.
