How acupuncture can help you stop smoking?
In a typical treatment session we use both auricular and body acupuncture. The auricular acupuncture is mainly used to stem the physiological urges of smoking, but also helps to regulate the lung, heart, and calm the nervous system. While the body points in conjunction with herbs, aim at clearing heat and phlegm from the lungs, encouraging the body to rebuild damaged tissue, providing nourishment, supplementing lung Qi, and replenishing dried up and lost fluids. They also supplement other organ systems which have been compromised by the heat generated by smoking.
One of the most difficult things to control in addiction is the withdrawals; this is due to an upset in blood sugar levels. You might experience nervousness, irritability, anxiety, and mood swings. Acupuncture is very effective at restoring and maintaining both sugar and insulin levels so your urges don’t spike; and it can regulate any emotional upheaval that may occur.
