Interested in kicking the habit for good? Why not try a natural therapy? Acupuncture can help curb your craving for nicotine.
Auricular Acupuncture is extremely helpful to combat addictions, in this case, nicotine. The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association has created a protocol to treat addiction. In this protocol, needles are placed in both ears in specific locations to treat the addiction. Some of the points can calm the mind, relax mind and body, as well as detox organ systems. Other points are chosen specifically to customize your treatment, which differ depending on your own body constitution and needs.
Although you may not immediately quit after your first few sessions, there will be a change in the pattern of smoking. Each treatment will lessen the urge to smoke. Every person is very different, therefore, the time it takes for an individual to fully quit varies. However, talk to your acupuncturist if you have any concerns on your journey to freedom from the addiction.
