Acupuncture For Addiction, Dependancy And Detox

  • Addiction is a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance.
  • Acupuncture is a great compliment to outpatient or inpatient treatment for addictive disorders and substance abuse.
  • Acupuncture has been proven through controlled clinical trials to have a therapeutic effect in treating opium, cocaine, heroine, tabacco and alcohol dependence and detoxification.

 

  • Acupuncture works to balance the body, mind and spirit.
  • This helps to make the patient solid emotionally, physically and spiritually for the upcoming task.
  • Acupuncture may help to remove the relevant substance from your open energy system as well as your "trash cans".
  • This may help to lighten the burden someone has to carry during detox.
  • Acupuncture has been proven to help the physical symptoms such as pain, nausea and headache.
  • Acupunture may also help purge the organ systems that have been trying to hold toxicity to spare the rest of the system.
  • Acupuncture may also work to help bridge the chemical gaps that happen during detox on a physical level.
  • If you or someone you know is looking to get extra assistance through acupuncture for dependency or addiction make sure that they get into a program or to see an acupuncturist before trying to quit.
  • Addiction and dependency are multifaceted, they may have chemical, physical, physiological and spiritual components that all need to be addressed and supported before the added strain of removing the toxicity from the body begins.
  • Attempting to detox one's self without the proper support teams may lead to bodily harm, as well as failure to succeed.
  • Unsucessfull attempts at something, even when we acknowledge we did not approach the situation as prepared as we should have, can make the following attempts even more mentally and emotionally daughnting.
  • It is important that you give yourself or loved one the best possible chances for succuess whether this be a structured program, therapy and/or holistic support.
