Acupuncture Helps With Smoking Addictions
Acupuncture has the ability to reduce cravings for cigarettes and alleviate withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, restlessness, anxiety and difficulty concentrating. It also aids in relaxation and detoxification.
More than 50 million Americans smoke. The numbers are even higher in other parts of the globe, with worldwide statistics showing that one out of three people over the age of 18 are smokers.
Study conducted at the University of Oslo, Norway, acupuncture was found to significantly reduce the desire to smoke up to five years after the initial treatment. Subjects of the study also reported that cigarettes tasted worse than before treatment and that the treatments had effectively reduced their taste for tobacco.
