Some thoughts on Acupuncture:
(results are unproven)


Although this method is not one that I personally can endorse, while researching nicotine addiction, I stumbled onto some information that may be of interest:

Acupuncture, in the hands of a skilled practitioner, is often discussed as a highly effective aid in the control of smoking and other addictions.

In some studies it has helped to decrease the physical cravings for tobacco. It also lessened the symptoms of withdrawal and had a generally sedative effect on the nervous system. Beta-endorphin, the natural hormone which causes physical relaxation and reduces sensitivity to pain, is released by the acupuncture treatment. This production of beta-endorphin is part of the physical mechanism which makes it possible for you to quit smoking.

Treatments consist of inserting sterile, disposable needles into special points on the ear, hand and wrist. A mild electric current is sometimes passed through these needles to augment the effect. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Tiny sterile retainer needles or press pellets are inserted into the ear and remain in place for a few days. These serve to exert a constant mini-stimulus to special points found helpful in reducing withdrawal symptoms.

Acupuncture is said to be effective for many other conditions as well. Acupuncture has a 3000-year old history and has only recently been found to be useful for addictions. The World Health Organization lists over 40 disorders that respond favorably to acupuncture. Among these are chronic pain, injuries, back and neck pain, chronic fatigue, headaches, depression, stress disorders, hypertension, insomnia, digestive disorders, pre-menstrual syndrome and other women's problems, constipation, allergies and the common cold.
