Quit smoking with acupuncture – why you should consider acupuncture to help you quit smoking.
According to the U.S Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 17.8% of people in the US smoke, 3200 people under the age of 18 start smoking every day and 2100 people go from occasional smokers to daily smokers every day. Annually in the US there are 42000 smoking related deaths.
Over many years, acupuncture has been clinically shown to be extremely effective in helping people quit smoking. Acupuncture needles are inserted into different points on the body and outer ear. You will also have special needles inserted on the outer ear, which will stay in place with a flesh colored plaster for about a week. The treatment is calming and cleansing for the body and makes the quitting process far more manageable. When you do this treatment with us, we will give you some homeopathic and herbal medicines that assist to reduce cravings between acupuncture treatments.
Some patients find this treatment enables them to quit “cold turkey” ,while others notice a significant change in their smoking habits – cravings satisfied quicker, forget to smoke and are often completely put off by their or someone else’s cigarettes.
There is never going to be a perfect time to quit, so if you are a smoker and want to quit, give us a ring today. If you know of anyone else who may benefit from quitting with this treatment, do them a favor and pass this mailer on or just suggest acupuncture.
