Whether you’ve just decided that it’s time to quit smoking or you’ve tried many times to do so without success, acupuncture treatment may be just the thing to help you finally kick the habit. There are many good reasons to quit smoking, not the least of which are the many symptoms and health problems that smokers develop over time such as chronic cough, shortness of breath and more frequent occurrences of colds or other illnesses. If those aren’t enough, many should consider the more serious health threats of cancer and emphysema as highly motivational factors when considering or deciding to stop smoking.
As we know through medical studies, nicotine is among the most addictive drugs known to man. Nicotine depravation can cause many psychological and physical symptoms and reactions, including headaches, anxiety, fatigue, nervousness, irritability and poor sleeping habits to name a few. Acupuncture treatment can help curb or cure these symptoms through increased relaxation, accelerated detoxification and ultimate restoration of total body balance in patients who quit smoking. The body’s natural healing process is then free to do its work in cleaning and restoring the function of the lungs and other organs.
