Stop Smoking with Acupuncture Therapy
Can Acupuncture really help me quit smoking? That is the question I expect to answer over the next month to a number of callers. It seems that many people like to start of their New Year with the resolution to QUIT SMOKING. Wonderful idea and now for the goods news. Yes Acupuncture has been extremely helpful to the people who truly desire to Quit Smoking.
Some people say that nicotine is one of the most addicting drugs. Who cares? That is not an excuse to be a slave to the American tobacco industry. Tobacco smoking is the cause of at least 30 % of all illness today. This includes hypertension, atherosclerosis, lung cancer, prostrate inflamation, respiratory disorders just to name a few. According to American Heart Association cigarette smoking is responsible for over 440,000 preventable deaths each year.
What should you do? Contact a licensed Acupuncturist in your neighborhood. Tell them Dr. Browne recommended this treatment for you. What should you expect from a skilled practitioner of Oriental medicine? You should ask them do they have a Stop Smoking Program. If they say yes, then you know you have called the correct practitioner.
There are a number of ways to treat substance abuse. Yes I said substance abuse that is exactly what tobacco smoking really is all about. For the most part I recommend a series of 12 treatments to be completed in six weeks. During the first two week you will be helped to cut down so that when you actually quit it will be a breeze.
Your Acupuncturist may give you an herbal formula to help ease the craving and discomfort during the first week. Once you have managed the first week off tobacco, the next three weeks will be much easier. I must say that the people who complete the entire six weeks program have the best statistic for Stop Smoking.
Acupuncture has been very successful with a number of substance abuse issues, to include heroin, cocaine, tobacco and food. Again I will like to emphasize that Acupuncture alone will not do the job, it needs your help and that means your strong desire to make a change in your life for the better. You put in 30 % drive and we will help you get to your goal.
