Auricular Therapy and Smoking – If you are a smoker, acupuncture also can help you recover from withdrawal symptoms. Nicotine withdrawal can produce anxiety, irritability, problems focusing, and an increased appetite. The goal of the acupuncturist in auricular therapy is to guide the body back to a balanced condition, helping to maintain control of the addiction. Auricular therapy has helped many of our patients, and it can help you too.
Weight Loss and Auricular Therapy - Auricular therapy is said to block messages to the brain that call for more food or eating. Other points in the body can strengthen willpower to eat less. If you follow a reduced-calorie diet while receiving treatment, you are creating an ideal environment for losing weight. Dieting will actually allow you to lose the weight, while auricular therapy allows you to stick to the diet much more easily then you normally would.
