Immediate for Addiction Support

Here to support your health and well-being.

Smoking cigarettes, cigars, vaping, chewing and other forms tobacco intake causes many diseases including cancer of the lungs, emphysema and COPD, with life-long implications that are often irreversible. Quitting smoking is truly challenging and rarely easy. Even intellectually knowing that cancer can present in the esophagus, mouth, throat, tongue, and several internal organs, often that knowledge cannot overpower the addiction to tobacco and nicotine.

Utilizing the NADA protocol and full-body acupuncture points for addictions helps to strengthen the lungs, reduce and relieve emotional anxiety, helps to manage pain wherever it presents on the body, and moves restoration to a healthy balanced state of well-being.

Here are a few tips to help you as you prepare to quit the tobacco habit, or as you move through the quitting process: drink plenty of water (filtered if possible); avoid sugar and eat a healthy mix of veggies, fruit and lean protein. You’ll notice food tastes better without nicotine interfering with the taste buds and keep in mind that no matter how tasty, sugary snacks add unwanted weight! When cravings arise, delay acting on them immediately a distract yourself with a project like wood carving, knitting or even a quick housekeeping chore. The cravings will fade within a couple of minutes as you busy yourself or distract yourself enough to remember all the reasons why you want to be free of this addiction. Even something as simple as taking a walk and enjoying the environment while doing a bit of deep breathing can get you over the moments of craving.

One of our favorite means of redirecting an impulse is to estimate the cost of each day’s addiction to nicotine, and then add up the savings of a week, a month, a year. Think about using all that money for a vacation, or new wardrobe or a home renovation project. In fact, start putting the cash you’d spend on nicotine into a jar or piggy bank and reward yourself when you’re ready to enjoy something new! A process of behavior modification helps to increase success when you are ready to detox from tobacco products.

Whether you want to eliminate pain, get pregnant, manage stress, or recover from surgery, we apply our in-depth knowledge of multiple treatment protocols to help you heal.
