Beschreibung der Methode "Quit smoking"
Was ist „Quit smoking”?
Smoking is an addiction. But only the smoker knows how difficult it is to renounce the daily enjoyment of cigarettes. It depends on the individual, on his motivation, his firm will. Without the firm intention of "I do not want to smoke anymore", neither group cessation, nicotine patches or other therapeutic approaches work.
But once the will to withdraw has been made, there are actually some ways to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms and to permanently renounce the cigarette.
Acupuncture for smoking cessation and nicotine withdrawal
A promising option to be accompanied by smoking cessation is acupuncture treatment. It makes sense to stop smoking before treatment with acupuncture for 24 hours. On the one hand, this has the advantage that the smoker can already perceive the withdrawal symptoms and classify them to what extent acupuncture treatment will help him, on the other hand, the therapist will be able to determine more precisely the now sensitive points in the smoker.
Stop smoking with ear acupuncture
As with all addictions, acupuncture is performed on the patient's ear to achieve the goal of "quit smoking". It is up to the therapist to treat other points on the body in order to increase the well-being of the patient. Traditionally, up to six points are "needled" on the ear - this is the name given to the placement of acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture to help the self-healing of the body in a smoking cessation
Acupuncture does not manage to cure the body of addiction. However, it helps the addicted person to significantly reduce the withdrawal symptoms. The needling points on the ear make it possible for the patient to be more susceptible to irritability, nervousness, restlessness, aggression, increased desire to eat, difficulty concentrating and general malaise. In addition, the treatment often means that the cigarettes just do not taste more, should the needled smoker succumb to the temptation again.
Duration and effectiveness of smoking cessation in acupuncture on nicotine withdrawal
The data on how often and how long acupuncture should be used vary. If a permanent acupuncture is done, leaving the needles permanently in the ear for a few days, it will be less often necessary to go to the therapist than if an outpatient therapy is being followed. Here it comes to a treatment sequence of two to six times, depending on the individual need.
