Acupuncture is a natural way to help curb the craving for nicotine when one decides to stop smoking. Acupuncture offers relief, especially in the acute phase of withdrawal when you’re wrestling with fatigue, irritability and gnawing cravings.
Acupuncture has no side effects. In fact, it is very common to notice side benefits like improvements in sleep or mood. Studies show that acupuncture promotes the brain to pump out endorphins, our feel-good hormones.
Commonly, patients undergoing acupuncture therapy for smoking cessation report fewer cravings, decreased irritability, improved mood, improved bowel movements and improved sleep.
