We all know the negative consequences of smoking, but quitting can be difficult. Like any other addiction, treatment plans have to acknowledge the mental, physical, and emotional effects smoking has on a person. Mentally, we must overcome the thought that we need a cigarette; physically, we must manage the dependence and the withdrawal of nicotine; and, emotionally, we must deal with the feelings surrounding smoking and letting those feelings shift and change.
At the Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition, we develop a treatment plan that addresses all three of these areas. Physical changes that can be expected include, but are not limited to, reduction of cough, increased volume and lung function, increased energy, reduction of mouth odor, and improved sleep.
The “Stop Smoking” protocol consists of acupuncture, both full body and auricular (ear acupuncture) with electrical stimulation (very slight current that serves to increase treatment success), stop smoking tea, nicotine detox homeopathic formula, and auricular seeds. These seeds are taped on the outer ear in order to maintain stimulation of the anti-smoking points and lengthen the effects of the in-office treatment. This additional step increases success rate threefold.
