Are looking to lose weight? The MICC injections we offer at Inner Balance Acupuncture in Westminster, Colorado, are a great way to compliment your weight loss program. Combined with your lifestyle adjustments, a five minute appointment, once or twice a week, is all it takes to put your weight loss program on the fast track!
What are MICC injections?
MICC injections are formulated with lipotropic substances (substances that help to metabolize fat in the body and eliminate it) made up of three primary compounds (methionine, Inositol and choline) and B12 (the last C, Cyanocobalamin):
Methionine is an essential amino acid that prevents fat build-up and removes it from the liver.
Inositol is found naturally inside your body. It helps regulate your insulin and hormone levels, as well as break down fats and redistribute them in the body where they can be more easily excreted.
Choline is one of the essential nutrients required by the body to thrive. It helps speed up metabolism and the body to burn fat.
Cyanocobalamin is one of the types of B12. This helps to boost energy (for those B12 deficient), regenerate nerve tissue and improve cognitive function.
These compounds work collectively in assisting the metabolism of fat cells and the elimination of stored fat deposits in the liver and throughout the body.
MICC injections are a great way to kickstart a weight loss program, move past a plateau, or to be used with an existing weight loss regimen.
What do MICC injections treat?
At Inner Balance Acupuncture, MICC injections are used to aid in the weight loss process. Patients who have tried diet and exercise alone, but fail to achieve the weight loss results they desire, may benefit from MIC injections.
Who is a good candidate for MICC injections?
Anyone looking to shed some pounds may be a good candidate for MICC injections. Inner Balance Acupuncture recommends one MICC injection per week for patients looking to lose less than 50 lbs. But for those looking to lose over 50 lbs, you may need up to two MICC injections per week.
It’s important to note that MICC injections complement a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and diet.
What happens during MICC injections?
MICC injections are a quick, in-office procedure. During your treatment, your provider inserts a thin needle directly into your upper arm or another part of your body, such as the buttocks, thigh, or hip, which may contain more fatty tissue.
After receiving your MICC injection, there’s no downtime and you can return to your usual activities.
Your practitioner at Inner Balance Acupuncture may recommend a series of MICC injections to help you gain the most benefits, depending on your needs.
