Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, acupuncture physician and clinical herbalist. Today, I will be demonstrating some acupressure points on the ears commonly used for weight loss. There are many different points that we can use in auricular acupuncture to help with addiction, which any time you're overeating we see that as an addiction, and it's one of the hardest ones to get rid of, because let's face it, you need to eat every day. So, I'm going to swab the point with some alcohol wipes here so that my little ear pellets here stay on for the maximum amount of time. So, we're going to give that a little chance to dry. What I'm using here are these Vicarious seeds from the Vicaria plant. Energetically they're neutral, and they have a little super sticky Band-Aid on them, and these will stay on for about four to five days and they're fantastic when you're treating weight loss because they give you something do with your hand and some sense of control when you're having a craving. So, the first point that we're going to do is Shen Men, and that's almost in all of our auricular prescriptions. Shen Men is located up here in the top hollow point of the ear and what that does is it helps to calm the nervous system. Now if you come straight down from that point right in this ridge right here, and you can see our model here actually has a little white spot at that point. That point is called Point Zero, and Point Zero is supposed to help reset the body back to its natural state of balance. So, you can see how these two points would be really effective when you're trying to lose weight. Another two points that I sometimes use are the mouth point for obvious reasons, kind of helps with that oral fixation which is located inside the ear almost in the ear opening right behind the Tragus so not on the other side of the Tragus but if you were to like go straight back from the Tragus which is that little pointy thing that sticks off your face and then the last one I'm going to use is the Endocrine Point just in case there's any hormonal aspect to it and the Endocrine Point is located right in this hollow point in the ear on the ridge and what you want to do is you want to stimulate those throughout the day anytime you're feeling a craving. You can't over stimulate those points, nothing bad is going to happen to you or anything like that and it should help. Most of your cravings should pass within two minutes so if you can use your hands to stimulate these instead of going to the fridge and getting some food, you stand a much better chance of actually balancing your caloric intake for the day which is, that's what weight loss is all about, you know how many calories come in versus how many you burn off throughout the day. So, for more points that are specific to you and your condition, I encourage you to visit your local acupuncture physician. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure points on the ears for weight loss.
