How acupuncture can help you quit smoking

It’s an effective treatment that has helped many people overcome addiction

There are no quick fixes dealing with any recovery. Smoking is especially difficult and there is nothing that will make you stop smoking. However, regular acupuncture treatment can help minimise cravings and make withdrawal more manageable.

Because of it’s proven effectiveness, the National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) has developed a simple acupuncture protocol to assist in the detoxification from addiction, including quitting smoking. This protocol is the gold standard for withdrawal management and is used widely in detox clinics and withdrawal management centres.

Acupuncture is a useful tool, but is only useful to the extent that you use it. Much like how you need to take antibiotics daily over a course of a week as opposed to all at once, acupuncture works better with frequent treatment rather than just once. It is the recommendation of this clinic, and many others, that treatment is best done at least three times a week for at least three weeks. It is also very important for you to be committed to quit smoking when you begin, as well as throughout your treatment. Acupuncture makes it easier to quit smoking, it doesn’t cure the addiction.

The clinic has a special treatment package, the NADA protocol with additional treatment to help clear your body, at a special rate.

The NADA Protocol

Acupuncture for smoking, weight loss and more

The NADA protocol began for addiction treatment but has been used for all sorts of substance use, mental health issues, weight loss and chronic pain. Recent applications include Battlefield Acupuncture, used by the American Air Force and other branches of the armed forces around the world to help returning veterans deal with chronic pain, PTSD and other issues related to combat service.
