Not surprisingly, in humans our brain plays the key role in regulating our appetite and thirst. Specifically, a region of the brain called the hypothalamus is what is responsible for orchestrating a series of very complex biochemical reactions.
The hypothalamus is often referred to as the “brain of the brain”. The hypothalamus is extremely complex with even small portions being involved in numerous functions. As one example, neurons in the hypothalamus have been found to be connected to the pituitary gland, gastric reflexes, maternal behavior, blood pressure, appetite, thirst, immune responses and body temperature. We truly could not survive without this amazing part of our brain’s anatomy.
The Hypothalamus Helps Our Body To Respond To:
- Food (what and how much we eat)
- Smell (how to respond to odors)
- Changes in light (for helping us to fall asleep)
- Information transmitted from the heart, stomach and reproductive tract invading organisms (by raising our body temperature) and numerous biochemical reactions
What is known is that when we consume excessive amounts of sugar our body must release larger and larger amounts of insulin to regulate our blood sugar (again, this is tied into the hypothalamus). It has also been found that when we experience sugar cravings there are distinct bioelectrical changes that occur in the hypothalamus.
This is all to say that from the point of view of western science (as compared with Chinese medicine) in order to regulate our appetite it would be desirable to regulate the function of the hypothalamus since it is this tiny region of our brain that is responsible for maintaining balance in nearly all of our functions.

Changing your eating habits to include healthy, well-balanced meals can improve your weight loss and help give you a better quality of life.

Many people report that when using the SP6 Appetite Control patch their appetite and hunger become suppressed. Specifically, they notice reduced cravings for sugar, feeling “full” faster during meals, and simply not feeling the “urge” to eat as much. And despite eating less, they tell of having plenty of energy. Individual results will vary.
6.- What is in the patches and how do they work?
The SP6 Appetite Control patch does not contain any drugs or chemicals that enter the body. Instead, SP6 patches help to control appetite by applying mild pressure to acupressure points that are known to help control the appetite and curb cravings.
7.- Will I get the jitters?
No, you should not experience any jitters during the use of the patches. The SP6 patch is not a stimulant. SP6 is a non-transdermal patch where nothing enters into the body.
8. - Why use the patches only on the recommended acupressure points?
It is known in traditional Chinese medicine that spleen and stomach acupressure points are responsible for balancing and regulating the appetite; that is why we recommend stimulating these points.
9.- How long and how often should I wear the SP6 Appetite Control patch?
It is recommended that you wear a patch for no more than 12 hours per day. For best results use the patches 5 days a week with 2 days off. See directions for more details.
10.- Will the SP6 program still work if I don't drink water?
Supplying your body with the water that it requires each day is an important part of any health and weight loss program. If you want to lose weight and have optimum health you should drink the recommended amount of water each day.
11.- How long and how often should I detox?
This will depend on your lifestyle and dietary habits. We recommend a detox program that is designed to remove built-up proteins from the wall of your intestine. This will improve your ability to lose weight and digest nutrients more efficiently. Normally a 2 to 7 day intestinal detox will work well. If you require a special diet, consult a physician, a certified nutritionist or a registered dietitian before beginning any modified diet plan.
12.- Can I have more than one meal replacement a day?
We suggest using a meal replacement once per day for gradual weight loss. Try using a meal replacement at the meal that causes you the most trouble. Example: if breakfast is always a donut on the run, drink a meal replacement shake instead. If you require a special diet, consult a physician, a certified nutritionist or a registered dietitian before beginning any modified diet plan.
13.- Can I wear the SP6 Appetite Control patch while detoxifying?
Yes, wearing the SP6 patch while detoxifying is encouraged.
14.- Why use one meal replacement as compared to others?
We recommend using a meal replacement that contains a healthy balance of nutrients but does not contain artificial sweeteners, dyes or other chemicals. If you require a special diet, consult a physician, a certified nutritionist or a registered dietitian before beginning any modified diet plan.
15.- How much weight can I expect to lose on the SP6 program?
As with any weight loss program individual results will vary. The SP6 Appetite Control patch program is intended to help you control your appetite, reduce calories, eat right, and exercise. This winning formula is a path that will assist you in losing weight.
16.- Will the SP6 Appetite Control patch help with my metabolism?
The SP6 Appetite Control patch is not designed to boost your metabolism and it is not a stimulant. The SP6 patch is designed to help you control your appetite through stimulation of acupressure points. However, including exercise in your SP6 program may help boost your metabolism - and help you burn more calories.
