Start the quit smoking
program today and succeed from today
You may have tried various
ways to quit smoking but have experience that it is, in most
cases, hard. This not only means it is hard to stop the
smoking, but also for many people, it is easy to start
Now you can try the Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
In the TCM, smoking is
regarded as a way to solve emotional stress. If not smoking,
people may choose to eat cake, chocolate; drink alcohol; to
abuse sexual activity; drugs…
If you ask your friends how they choose to release
their stress when they are frustrated, you may find that
there are various ways. Some methods used
stress could be by crying, laughing, absorbing themselves
into reading, by traveling, finding a friend..... All in
all, it means that smoking, is just another means to relieve
emotional stress, either consciously or unconsciously.
Therefore, to successfully quit smoking, we must work on the
TCM, uses acupuncture and herbal therapy for quitting
smoking. They work by the following mechanisms:
(1). Calm down the stress.
There is no doubt that the Chinese medicine works well for
emotional disorders. It works for stress, anxiety,
depression, sadness, madness, dementia. It also works to
activate the desire for life in those who have lost this
desire. Also, it calms down the emotional and physical
activity in children with ADHD.
Therefore in people who
smoke, the TCM therapies work to make them feel more calm
and less stressed.
(2). Reduce the
inflammation in the respiratory system.
After a long time of smoking, the inner membrane of
the respiratory system (your pharyngeal, laryngeal tract and
branch) becomes thick due to inflammation and swelling. You
become less sensitive to
cigarette smoke. So, you do not feel the discomfort
you may have felt when you started smoking.
TCM reduces the swelling of the inner membrane of
the respiratory system, reduces its inflammation, so
restores the sensitivity to the smoke. Therefore, along with
the reduction of the smoking, your previous symptoms, such
as cough, phlegm, shortness of breath, sour throat, dry
mouth, poor sleep, bad
breath… will all be corrected. It is a healing
process, not only a life style change.
Recommendation in the quit
(1). Have acupuncture treatment at least once every two
days. If you can have it every day, it works much better.
This is very important for the first week. This is similar
to starting a heavy truck. To start the truck we need to
give more gas. Once it moves, we only need to give it a
little gas to keep it moving.
The acupuncture points we are using are the ones on the
middle back of the neck, the ones between the nipples, the
one just under your xiphoid bone and some are on the back of
The typical acupuncture therapy means to insert
a thin needle on the acupuncture points on the skin. There
is another way to obtain a similar effect. It is to press
the acupuncture points on your ears. We can press them by
hand squeezing, or by pressing some beads, such as herb
seeds, on the ear acupuncture points. This therapy is called
ear acupuncture therapy,
or, more professionally, auricular acupuncture therapy.
In many cases, the effects of the ear acupuncture
excellent since the ear is one of the few places in our
body remaining sensitive to
physical stimulation. Our hands and feet may not
be as sensitive to such fine stimulation. This is
especially useful for those who may feel it difficult to
have regular acupuncture treatment.
To use the ear acupuncture therapy, we stick on some
herbal seeds on the acupuncture points on the ears.
You can use any kind of similar beads, if they
are round and smooth on surface. You need to keep them
on for five days. You can still
bathe or shower. The seeds will not fall off.
Five days later, you remove them. Some people are
sensitive to the stimulation. If you feel too much pain
or itch from the seeds, you can remove them at any time.
(2). We will also give you a kind of herbal oil for
smell, not to be taken orally. The oil works to reduce
your desire to smoke. You smell it three times a day, 10
minutes each time. You can also smear the oil on the
cigarette, vertically, in a thin line. So, you can smell
the oil whenever you smoke.
(3). Additional choice is to take the Stop Smoking Tea.
It is a mixture of several herbs. You drink it one pouch
in the morning and one in the afternoon, as ordinary
green tea. It works to calm your emotion.
How good is the quit smoking program:
The combination of these therapies makes the quit
smoking program very successful.
In our experience, the success of the stop smoking
program does not depend on the history of the smoking,
the length of the smoking, the amount of
cigarettes you smoke every day, or
whether or not you want to quit. Of course, if
you want to quit, it will work much better. This is
similar to feeling nausea, we will feel it no matter we
want or not.
The success rate can be as little as one acupuncture
treatment, together with the herbal therapy for less
than three days. For most cases, it needs 5 to 10
treatments to completely stop smoking from more than 20
cigarettes a day. Overall in our hands, the success rate
can be as high as more than 90%.
