THE CLINICAL TRIAL

A tried and tested weight loss system.

The Acc(u)Life clinical trial was conducted in 1996 by Dr. Joseph Cheu, assisted by Dr. Charles Schwartz, studying the effects of acupressure on weight loss.

The hypothesis:

• The medial (middle) hypothalamus governs satiety (feelings of fullness).

• The lateral (side) hypothalamus governs the amount you eat.

Twenty-eight subjects were chosen to participate in this 13 week study.

The study combined Asian and American weight loss concepts without the use of medications to achieve results. Looking to prove the hypothalamic hypothesis, the trial focused on weight loss results when utilizing acupressure, Chi Gong breathing and nutritional change to enhance appetite satisfaction.

SUBJECTS

Acupressure Group

Six subjects were given a program of just Acc(u)Beads with no other modifications to their lifestyle.

RESULTS

Acupressure Group

Subjects reported a reduction in appetite, resulting in less food consumption. Over the 13 weeks, average weight loss was 3 lbs.

CONCLUSION

Acupressure Group

Acc(u)Beads caused more awareness of food intake causing subjects to modify habits, contributing to their weight loss.

Diet Group

Six subjects were given a food protocol with no other modifications to their lifestyle.

Diet Group

No subject completed more than 2 weeks.

Diet Group

Weight loss without Acc(u)Beads slowed the body’s metabolism and the subjects were literally starving.

Acupressure + Diet Group

Sixteen subjects were provided with the total program of Acc(u)Beads, food protocol, and Chi Gong Breathing.

Acupressure + Diet Group

Over the 13 weeks, average weight loss was 46 lbs.

Acupressure + Diet Group

Acc(u)Beads appear to: Signal the hypothalamus that food satisfaction has been achieved, thus clients do not experience hunger. Signal the body that it is not calorie deficient but is getting all the basic fat, protein, and amino acids necessary.

Clients are losing mainly fat, but little muscle or organ mass.

Chi Gong Breathing appears to enhance weight loss as well as increase energy by increasing the body’s ability to use oxygen.

No medical contraindications have emerged since the program began. In fact, just the opposite has occurred. Clients and their doctors report reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as improvement with other medical conditions such as diabetes.

Since then, our program has helped more than 50,000 people lose 1 million+ pounds and build happy, healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
