Freezing your nerves is the weight loss trend you should know about!

Science has come up with an interesting yet unique way of losing weight. It does not require hours on the treadmill or a genie diet which makes you shed kilos in hours, but rather a technique which can make you lose weight in a short period of time.
At the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society of Interventional Radiology in Los Angeles, a study led by Dr. David Prologo, an Interventional Radiologist at Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, discovered that freezing the hunger nerve can actually usher up to weight loss.

The hunger nerve, also known as the posterior vagal trunk, is responsible for sending hunger signals from the gut to the brain. This nerve is located at the back of the neck. The group of scientists found that if this nerve is numbed, it means a significant change in the weight of a person since they will not unnecessarily eat food.
To complete the technique, scientists insert a hair-like needle in the nerve. To ensure that the needle is placed at the exact nerve, scientists use a CT scan. Next, the experts release argon gas from the needle instrument into the nerve to freeze it. This gas is used to bring the temperature of the nerve down. Ultimately, this paralyzes the nerve and eventually, no signal can be transferred due to this.The study included 10 individuals ranging in the age group of 27 to 60 with BMIs varying between 30 to 37. The average BMI of a moderately obese person ranges between this.In an interview with a leading media portal, Dr. Prologo mentioned the average weight loss percentage to be 14 per cent in participants in a span of 90 days, “Ideally, if you are following a healthy weight loss routine, this is how much you should be losing in the first 90 days, otherwise you rebound and get back to your old eating habits.”Some dangers of this method can be nausea and vomiting, however, studies are still going on. Dr. Prologo, in his interview, has also spoken about the possibility of prolonged bleeding in this procedure.
It is also important to keep in mind that different bodies will respond to this technique in a variety of ways. The method of freezing nerves is yet to get an approval from the medical and scientific advisory board as the study is not done on a large group.
