I was curious if any of the women(or men) have gotten their ears stapled?

If so, did it work for weight loss or to stop smoking?

It may be old news for some of you but we are just starting it in Arkansas.

My brothers fiance just had both her ears done and so far she has eaten double the amount she normally eats. They did say if may take a few days to take affect. Plus they told her to take it out after 3 months...how do you get it out? Its not like an earring...

Do you think its just mind over matter???

Thanks

lol I think I agree with everyone on here when they say wtf? Are we talking about something real here?

I think its about focusing all of your attention on why the heck your ears are stapled and so you stop eating ... I think thats it

i googled too, here is an update to msE's link

link



Jessica says she was stapled by a woman working out of her vehicle.
"When I pushed on it, stuff would come out the holes. It came out of the top hole and the bottom hole where the staple was. It was real hard for me to open my mouth; it was hard for me to chew and stuff like that. It was just unbearable; I couldn't sleep on it or anything."

It's based on acupuncture. You stick the staple in the right spot, it sends a signal to the stomach that makes you feel full sooner and suppresses your appetite. People are also doing it to help stop smoking. It makes you have a bad taste in your mouth when you try to light up. Some people say it works, some say it doesn't. Cowboy thinks its mind over matter.

I can't beleive nobody else has heard of it? Its all the rage around here right now.

Thanks for posting some links...I was out all day yesterday and didnt get a chance to reply quick enough.


I am shocked that no one has heard of this. Everyone is saying that its the thing to do in the big cities.

They charge like hundreds of dollars to do it in some places. You can get it done here for 30-50 dollars per ear.

I will update if my brothers fiance actually starts losing weight.

I'm not surprised that they're doing this - Pig Farmers have been cutting knotches in pigs ears for years to help them gain weight. I would think though that people would have better sense to make a life style change with a healthy diet and exercise than something as dramatic as stapling your ear.
