Acupuncture & Addiction Therapy, Finding Your Way Back to Self-Empowerment
According to Chinese Astrology, 2014 is the year of the Wood Horse. The strong, decisive, and quick energy of the Wood Horse may be exactly what you need to finally quit that vice for good! For many, that may sound appealing, but don’t feel that they have the will-power to actually do it, as the cravings are too intense. Thankfully, Acupuncture has been proven in numerous studies to cut cravings, reduce stress, and help addicts quit for good.
Various forms of Acupuncture help treat addictions. The most commonly known method used worldwide is the NADA (National Addiction & Detoxification Association) protocol. Here is a link to the website: www.acudetox.com for more information. The NADA protocol is an ear Acupuncture treatment that consists of needling 5-points in each ear, which have been proven through various research studies, to help addicts fight cravings. The ear is a microcosm of the body, with the lobe being the head, and the internal organs residing in the concha cava.
Researchers are not clear on the exact mechanism of auricular acupuncture, but scientists do agree that endorphins are released during treatment, which causes a natural body high and extreme relaxation. Another method of treatment, involves the stimulation of points along the spine with electrical stimulation, and is especially useful for heroin and more severe addictions. Here is a link to the most recent research on this topic.
Acupuncture is not a silver bullet for treating addictions, but within a comprehensive care plan, it has been proven to be significantly beneficial for addicts that are serious about quitting their drug of choice. Whether that drug is smoking, alcohol, heroin, or food, or…. you name it! Remember, as a human being, you have the ultimate free-will to decide your life course. Every choice you make today, will effect your future tomorrow. Allow yourself to create the amazing, beautiful, healthy life that you have always dreamed of. Your Human body is an incredible machine. You innately have the Self-Power to overcome any obstacle. Make a strong-commitment to your life today, get the acupuncture and other self-care you need, and kick that bad habit for good!
