What Can Be Enjoyed?
Ear point acupressure could prevent overeating, as well as unhealthy cravings.

Aside from that, based on research, despite the fact that the auricular acupressure is indeed effective in reducing BMI, there’s a more effective weight loss method through the use of vaccaria seeds. Tape the seeds to the ear point and apply pressure. Combining auricular acupressure with a low-calorie diet could also reduce the leptin levels, but further studies should be made to verify this.
