Acupuncture & Detoxification
- Posted on: Dec 9 2016
We are fast approaching the New Year and trying to maintain the resolutions we set for ourselves. If your resolution includes giving up any substance which our body becomes accustomed and dependent upon, consider Acupuncture to help you save your sanity and maintain your commitment. Whether it is food, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, or drugs. Acupuncture can help your body detox.
Auricular (ear) acupuncture protocols are used around the world to help people deal with and recover from substance abuse. National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) and American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders (ACACD) protocols are beneficial in the process of detoxification as well as to help with the emotional, physical, and psychological aspects involved in addiction.
It is easy to say I need to make changes in my lifestyle however, one of the toughest hurdles everyone faces is committing to letting go of bad habits. It can be difficult to stick with your decision to improve your overall health, when all you can focus on is acute physical and emotional feelings during this time of change. Acupuncture helps individuals during this struggle by speeding up the process of detoxification in the body, while relaxing the mind and body.
