Kindo Integrated Health Center’s New Weight Loss Program Utilizes Acupuncture

Aug. 6, 2010

The Kindo Integrated Health Center has kicked off its Intentional Eating Program, an integrated

system to help patients lose weight and achieve optimal health.

“Our Intentional Eating Program can enhance the function of the hypothalamus, the portion of the

brain that controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, and fatigue. Our program will do so by normalizing

metabolism, reducing physical hunger, eliminating emotional eating and food cravings, and stopping the

abnormal storing of fat,” says Dr. Arthur Rapkin, director of the Kindo Integrated Health Center, 890

Elm Grove Rd., Elm Grove.

”The program can reshape the body and achieve weight loss. We can achieve these through a

combination of acupuncture treatments, the ingestion of a protein called HCG (Human Chorionic

Gonadotrophin), and coaching.”

According to Dr. Rapkin, HCG is a naturally occurring peptide that safely and effectively resets the

hypothalamus, which can be adversely affected by the chemicals in food and environmental stress.

“When these attack our hypothalamus, obesity and rapid weight gain can occur. It’s the hypothalamus

that controls digestion, sleep, food intake and energy and metabolism,” he says. “It also controls fat

accumulations and deposits as well as endocrine functions and the sex drive.”

Dr. Rapkin explains that acupuncture is used to stimulate parts of the brain that activate the

hypothalamus and the body’s principal survival systems, i.e. the nervous, endocrine, immune, and

cardiovascular systems. “Acupuncture promotes normal and physiological activities in the whole body,”

he says.

To reinforce Kindo’s Intentional Eating Program, Dr. Rapkin offers support and coaching. “Our

coaching involves group meetings that allow participants to meet with other individuals who have had

success with the program and others who are just beginning the program. We provide useful

information on how to eat intentionally and wisely.”
