Quit Smoking With Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatments reduce cravings, alter the taste of cigarettes, reduce irritability, and increase well-being and relaxation. 

Acupuncture is a highly effective method to quit smoking by adjusting your body and brain chemistry to reduce cravings. Scientific studies have confirmed that acupuncture treatment alters the content of certain chemicals in the body, affects the nervous system and reduces withdrawal symptoms. According to traditional Chinese medicine theory, acupuncture needles in the ears influence the blood flow to the brain and the brain's response to various stimuli, including light, sound, and smell.

Most smokers try to quit before they are truly successful. This failure is because withdrawal symptoms are often much more severe than the effects of nicotine withdrawal itself. Smoking and nicotine are two of the five million Australians who will never be free. Still, those who help people quit will receive much support by reducing withdrawal symptoms and managing the dreaded cravings.

Successfully, acupuncture can help with withdrawal symptoms and allow you to quit smoking entirely without chemicals' continued use. Other methods used to quit smoking have tried to dissuade you from using nicotine, but only to find that they are returning to the habit. Acupuncture treatment can counteract this by continuing to smoke in people who only see their withdrawal symptoms and cravings return.

Acupuncture is also an all-natural method that helps curb cravings for nicotine and reduce the risk of nicotine addiction and withdrawal symptoms.

If you are trying to quit smoking, acupuncture is an all-natural way to curb nicotine cravings. It provides relief when you struggle with fatigue, irritability and gnawing cravings.

Most people associate acupuncture with pain relief and relaxation, but people can use it to help quit smoking. Some people try acupuncture because they cannot tolerate the drugs to quit tobacco. [2]

Acupuncture treatments reduce cravings, alter the taste of cigarettes, reduce irritability, and increase well-being and relaxation. There are particular acupuncture points on the wrist that people can use specifically to reduce the craving for cigarettes without actually changing the cigarettes' taste. Auricular and laser acupuncture can also help people quit smoking by reducing cravings, stopping the tremors associated with withdrawal, and cleaning the body.

There is also an approach, which Tim Mee calls "cognitive behavioural therapy," like smoking cessation treatment as acupuncture treatment.

In general, acupuncture practitioners take the symptoms into account and design a therapy that considers the specific needs. I, therefore, propose that public education on acupuncture to help quit smoking should be encouraged by providing community lessons, sending advertising materials on acupuncture, and explaining the theories and benefits of acupuncture.

We have concluded acupuncture is a safe way to quit smoking and helps smokers to stop. Therefore, acupuncture could be considered a method to help smokers to quit smoking. Further, studies on the efficacy and differences between acupuncture and nicotine are needed to determine the benefits of acupuncture and replace varenicline and bupropion treatment. Successful cases should be introduced so that more people have a clear understanding of smoking cessation with acupuncture.

At Acupuncture Adelaide TCM Clinic, we can offer you acupuncture treatments to help you quit smoking. Such acupuncture treatments will relieve lingering chronic pain as well.

These treatments focus on eliminating tremors, cravings, irritability and restlessness. The treatments will also provide relaxation and detoxification.

When smokers crave a cigarette, they can press a pellet that stimulates acupuncture points gently in their ears. Acupuncture has successfully helped wean people off cigarettes. It has turned a growing number of cigarette smokers into non-smokers. Acupuncture can make the transition from smoking to smoking free - and forever.

Smoking cessation has a high relapse rate after stopped smoking. A study found amounts of cigarettes per day decreased by acupuncture treatment, and the average relapse time was more than 71 days, which is more than two-thirds of the time for other smokers who did not under acupuncture treatment. They concluded that acupuncture is an effective and safe way to help smokers quit.

The numbers of acupuncture sessions can significantly impact success, with most people receiving eight sessions in the first month. This easy-to-use, highly efficient treatment offers the first positive effects of therapy in less than 10 minutes.

Ear acupuncture requires gently press the ear pellets to stimulate the points, calm the mind and eliminate cravings. Acupuncture works by regulating the desire to balance the brain chemistry of the body and is used to help people quit smoking. It is also effective in curing the damage caused by smoking and is ideal for treating various addiction and addictive behaviours.
