There are a lot of studies out there about the effectiveness of ear stapling for weight loss. The claim is that a small surgical staple placed at a point on the ear affects your stomach and decreases appetite by sending a message to your brain that "you’re already full." Ear stapling comes from the tradition of auricular acupuncture, the manipulation of points on the ear to affect general health and to control addictions and cravings. Auricular acupuncture has been used successfully to help cigarette smokers and heroin addicts kick their drug habits and, properly administered by a qualified acupuncturist, may help some people lose weight. Has anyone out there experienced ear stapling?
