For Curbing the Appetite

Acupuncture sites on the ears are also beneficial in curbing the appetite, and while it may be awkward to stick your fingers in your ears in public when eating out, it can be used at home. Figures 52 and 53 demonstrate these points. Simply place the index fingers into the ears as shown, pressing over the site. A fair amount of pressure should be used even if it is a little unpleasant. If done properly and persistently it will reduce hunger in many people.
