America’s New Disease

Posted by on Jun 20, 2013 in acupuncture, lifestyle, obesity | 0 comments

The American Medical Association took a vote on Tuesday and declared that 78 million American adults and 12 million children have a new medical condition requiring treatment. That’s right folks, obesity is now a disease. obesity_epidemic_america

In some ways this could be good. For some it may be an eye opener and they will realize that being fat like everyone else isn’t ok, it’s a disease.

However, for those stuck in the medical system, this may mean more lap band surgeries and medications. Very good for the surgeons, the pharmaceutical companies and the manufactures of plus size clothing, but not so good for the consumer.

If you’re reading this and are struggling with you weight, acupuncture can help with food cravings but that’s just to get you started. Check out our Anti-aging Body Make-over and rev up your metabolism, learn to eat for health. Your body will thank you.
