The laser therapy treatments for weight loss are recommended in addition to a healthy diet and exercise plan, or can compliment any other weight control program that you may be using.
When acupuncture points on the ears and body are stimulated with low-level laser therapy, the body releases its own endorphins and serotonin, which help:
Laser therapy suppresses the appetite by stimulating involuntary reflexes of the stomach and intestines by raising endorphin and serotonin levels, both of which increases smooth muscle tone in the stomach wall and decrease the duration of peristaltic waves (involuntary contractions that pass along the walls of the intestines and forces the contents onward) which inhibits nerve activity in the stomach and intestines, leading to a delay in the stomach emptying and a sense of fullness and early satiety. As well, the release of endorphins and serotonin enables the body to utilize food more efficiently and so the body burns fat more efficiently.
Not all people react in the same way to laser therapy, and one person may not always react the same way after each treatment. Some pharmaceuticals can interfere with the laser therapy treatments and produce varied results. Also, certain underlying conditions may need to be addressed first before weight loss can occur.
