At Primary Care Partners of South Bend, we explore the world of integrated medicine in some cases. Integrated medicine utilizes non-conventional medical treatments and combines them with more traditional practices. One way that we practice integrated medicine in our office is through using acupuncture to aid is smoking cessation.
Acupuncture for Smoking Cessation
We understand how difficult it can be to quit smoking. If you have tried to quit smoking but are struggling, it does not mean you are weak. In fact, smoking regularly conditions the smoker’s brain to be dependent on nicotine, a highly addictive substance in cigarettes and other tobacco products. For this reason, we offer an alternative approach to common methods for curbing the want to smoke. If you have tried remedies that have not worked and are looking for something new, consider acupuncture.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine derived from traditional Chinese treatment. During an acupuncture procedure, your doctor strategically places very thin needles into your skin. Then, these needles stimulate and regulate your nerves, muscles, and organs. Primary Care Partners of South Bend uses acupuncture to boost brain chemicals that deter the desire to smoke. Additionally, it can aid symptoms of withdrawal while subduing your addiction. Importantly, we can assure you that acupuncture is a safe procedure with very little side effects and can be done easily right inside our office.
Primary Care Partners of South Bend offers acupuncture treatment for smoking cessation in our offices. Quitting smoking at anytime is beneficial to your individual health and society as a whole and it is never too late to quit. Namely, acupuncture can directly stimulate your brain at the source of wanting to smoke.
