Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Is ear stapling for weight loss safe? How often does it have to be done to be effective?
A: I am assuming you are referring to ear acupuncture or sub dermal ear tacks; these are often used as treatment protocols for addictions and appetite control. The treatments are safe if under the care and supervision of a licensed practitioner. Proper hygiene rules need to be followed to prevent infections.
You may also try the specially formulated herbal formula “B-Slim” from the Traditions of Tao. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
