Yes folks another beautiful starlet has taken to the needle ! Famous women including, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Celine Dion and Sheryl Crow, to name a few, have incorporated acupuncture into their lives. Celine Dion used acupuncture for fertility and Sheryl Crow as a way to help her through breast cancer treatments. Now JLo has joined the crowd. In a recent article, OK! magazine reported that Lopez used acupuncture and Chinese herbs for weight-loss and dropped 15 pounds.
Here’s the scoop from the examiner.com
“She’s been gushing about how obsessed she is with acupuncture and herbs,” a source revealed to the mag. “Dong Gua Pi [winter melon seed, like cucumber] is Jennifer’s favorite, but she’s been using [many different herbs],” the source adds.”
“Licensed acupuncturist and herbalist Joey Komada, who does not treat J.Lo, says acupuncture is useful when the individual is willing to make lifestyle changes to accommodate the program.”
“We know that acupuncture needles inserted into specific points on the body and in the ear release endorphins which have a calming and relaxing effect that makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating and bingeing on fattening foods,” says Komada via her site. “Also endorphins affect the digestive and hormonal systems so acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast- or in this case too slow—i.e., the metabolism and the will power.”
