how acupuncture works for Smoking Cessation

Acupuncture is an excellent tool in an effective effort to stop smoking. Acupuncture detoxifies the lungs, liver and kidneys. In addition, it raises the level of endorphins released providing relief from the powerful cravings associated with addiction to tobacco products.

 

VIDEO TESTIMONY

FINALLY WON THE BATTLE

"It's been 21 years since I've smoked a cigarette. Before then I was at a pack a day. My wife says I was at close to two packs a day. I visited Tom Williams. We went through three treatments. I tried to disprove it, and then on my last treatment, I decided not to smoke. 

"The thing for me for smoking was physical. Psychologically, I would tell myself I wanted to quit smoking, get myself prepared, and then at one or two days be overwhelmed with physical craving for smoking cigarettes. That was the one piece that was just really hard for me.

"With the acupuncture, I was able to not have that physical craving for cigarettes. Therefore, I finally won the battle of trying to quit smoking. It's been 21 years that I have been cigarette free. I'm just really thankful. I have my health back. I feel so much better now. For something to actually own me like cigarettes did was really a tough thing for me. So really, it's been many gifts."ng was physical.
