50 years ago, the idea of piercing your tongue may be bizarre, but nowadays such piercing has become usual. Ear piercing may also be usual, but ear piercing for weight loss is not the everyday piercing that you will see.
For today freaky Friday, I will write about a weight loss staple which will put piercing in your ears which are supposed to make you lose weight. The inventor, Dr. William Burrows, would not reveal his secret on how the staple works. And it sounds very shady since the only information that could be gathered was that this staple utilized a acupuncture method to make us lose weight.
Dr Burrows must be making very good money from this since he claims that he has stapled approximately 30,000 innocent ears in fourteen years. But again it might be that his credential that delivered so many people to have their ears stapled, Dr. Burrows has a degree as a doctor of chiropractic, Bachelor of Science degree in anatomy, and holds an acupuncture certificate. But still there's not any scientific back up of having your ears nastily stapled will make you lose weight. Let's find out more about the side effects, result and cost.
Dr. Burrows claims that most people who get their ears stapled will lose staggering 10 - 30 pounds a month without any exercise! Although Dr. Burrows cannot really guarantee the amount of weight lost since literally the heavier you are then the more you can lose. Weight loss staple uses a small surgical stainless steel staple which is pierced in your ear so that it stimulates the effect of appetite suppression. Of course you will lose weight then, since you won't feel hungry. But doesn't it sound nasty?
The metal staple is placed on the stomach point in the ear, the stomach point will send a signal to the brain saying that it's full resulting in lose of appetite. There's not any notable side effect according to Dr. Burrows save for few beneficial side effects such as eliminating sugar cravings and curing diarrhea and constipation. This sounds too good to be true, but there are several die hard patients who testified for KFOR.com. Brenda Garett testified that she lost 10 pounds within a little over a month.
How much does it cost? If you are going to sacrifice your ears to be stapled then it is going to cost you US$50 to pierce one ear and US$70 to pierce both according to his website. The amount of ears that he has pierced indicates that around 15,000 people (assuming one people get piercing for both ears) were desperate enough to lose weight. Geez, in my opinion the piercing looks nasty and I don't hate my appetite that much! Heck I am not that desperate to lose weight. If I have to choose between pooping in my pants and having my ears pierced then I will gladly choose o poop in my own pant. This looks nasty even though it works. And the side effects might not be apparent now.
Anybody want to get their ears stapled? This is Dr. Burrows website.
