Naturopathic therapies can help a committed individual to successfully quit smoking.
Smoking is related to a number of illnesses, most notably the increased risk of cancer, COPD, and heart disease. However many individuals find it difficult to quit smoking, partially because of the addictive properties of nicotine. The ND Smoking Cessation can help you successfully overcome cravings and quit.
Therapies & Strategies Used:
Commonly used therapies and strategies may include vitamins and minerals, detoxification, lifestyle and nutritional counseling, botanicals and homeopathies. In addition, acupuncture is increasingly being used to treat problems of chemical addiction. Auricular Acupuncture is considered the most effective body location for treating chemical withdrawal symptoms by stabilizing the rate of the release of endorphins into the body.
Addressing Endorphin Levels: A Key Step
When the body is addicted to nicotine, it will naturally have higher endorphin levels. When an individual makes the step to give up smoking, the endorphin levels will drop and will need to be maintained. In this way, patients that have quit, and need help with withdrawal can be treated. Using naturopathy and acupuncture, you will detoxify your body from the toxins that are accumulated in the body over years of smoking, and be able to control and remove the cravings for cigarettes efficiently.
