Last March I drove by this chiroprators' Buisness that advertised this weightloss ear clip so I called to see how much it cost and set up an apointment. The cost was $40.00. I was given this white piece of plastic shaped like an oddly hooped earring. I was shown to put it on the upper part of the cartlidge of my ear. To follow directions you are supposed to do this before anything you drink or consume other than water. What you do is press it together so it pinches your skin 10 times wait ten minutes before you eat or drink then repeat. It is designed to supress your appetiete. I did this and a few minutes after I tried it I felt very faint. Next I was extremely dizzy. I stayed dizzy. For days I was having spells of dizziness even just sitting down. It made me disoreinted. I went to the Dr. but they couldn't pinpoint it. I fianlly got ahold of the chiropractor and he told me it was not high enough and hit a nerve that filled my ear with fliud. It would have been nice to know it could do this before. any more quetions on my experience jsut ask!

You can buy very cheaply magnetic accupressure pads for your ear .. they work in just the same way but safely .. no side affects and no permanent damage ... and you can just leave them in place for the day ... give them a little press a short while before eating and hey presto .. you might lose weight ... If it does nothing more it will at least keep you focussed on choosing better food options .. so whether the magnetic acupressure works or not you should get a pleasing result .. and they are quite pretty to

that sounds awful. I hope you aren't still using this. I have tried some werid diets myself in the past. The best that has worked has been the low carbs high protein diet but I have a hard time staying away from junk food and soda

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I would not recomend this novelty to anyone. It turned out to be an expensive piece of junk.

It's the first time I've heard of this appetite suppressant. It must work for really overweight people but then the directions for use should have been more detailed. Look what happened to you. I wouldn't have tried it anyway as I'm not really that overweight to worry or spend money to suppress my appetite.
