Before we continue, let me present you with a bad news. Quitting smoking is very tough. According to the research, many people who try to quit smoking restart within a week and about 90 percent relapse within a year. But there is also a good news. It is possible to quit and we have helped many people on their way to becoming nicotine-free.
We are not going to preach to you about all the danger of nicotine addiction. (Just in case you are interested, click here) Frankly, you have heard it all before. And besides, smoking is your choice and you should have freedom to make decisions for yourself. But if you decided to kick the deadly habit, we are here to help you all the way!
We, at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area, do not believe in “one-size-fits-all” solution to quitting smoking. We are all different human beings, and should approach every situation individually. In our 30 years of experience, we have developed a unique and time after time proven program that is customized to every patient’s individual needs.
The program includes:
Acupuncture treatments are totally painless and the effects are long lasting. The World Health organization (WHO) of the United Nations recognizes forty-seven different health conditions that are successfully treated by acupuncture. One of these is nicotine addiction. While some smokers have tried using the nicotine patch to stop smoking, they are often unsuccessful. The reason is that the patch puts nicotine back into your body. Acupuncture detoxifies the body. It takes nicotine out of your body while allowing your natural endorphins to take over the comfort level. Most of the people who quit smoking experience insomnia, anxiety, and crankiness in the first weeks after quitting. Acupuncture and hypnosis can greatly decrease of completely eliminate the unpleasant side-effects of abstinence. Our acupuncturist Peter Melamed, LAc, PhD has more than 25 years of experience helping people like you.
So why do people relapse? It is well known that physical cravings disappear within 3-7 days. A tricky few days and then a lifetime of freedom. So why hasn’t it been that easy previously? Simple, you didn’t deal with the psychological addiction of smoking. If you think that stopping smoking is depriving you of something, then it is just a matter of time until you start again. It makes no difference how strongly you consciously want to quit. No amount of so-called willpower will get you to quit smoking if you are subconsciously opposed to quitting. Simply speaking, you will not quit smoking until you are subconsciously ready to do so! On the other hand, once you are subconsciously ready to quit, you won’t be able to smoke! Hypnotherapy is ideal for this. Using hypnosis, you can deal with all of the emotional and psychological aspects of giving up smoking.
Hypnosis is highly effective because it addresses the subconscious. The results can be felt immediately.
Here are just a few of the many and marvelous benefits of hypnosis sessions for those who have made the choice to become nonsmokers:
- Hypnosis strengthens motivation and reinforces the positive goal of being a nonsmoker;
- Hypnosis helps to remove patterns of habit (e.g., Every time I read a book, I light up);
- Hypnosis can lower and/or eliminate the level of desire for nicotine;
- Hypnosis assists in relieving and/or completely eliminating withdrawal symptoms;
- Hypnosis offers constructive and healthy relaxation methods to reduce stress;
- Hypnosis reinforces wellbeing and the positive feeling of success!
There are many hypnotherapy practitioners who sell CDs to help people quit smoking. Those “all-purpose” CDs may or may not help you. We do it differently. As a part of your hypnosis session, we will record a custom made CD, prepared exclusively for YOU to take home. By listening, you will be able to continue with hypnosis in the privacy of your home.
Our hypnotherapist is Certified in Medical Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis by National Guild of Hypnotists.
Most people who quit smoking worry about gaining weight. It seems to go with the territory. While a small gain is normal, excessive weight gain when you quit smoking can create new health problems and erode your determination to stay off cigarettes. Why do people gain weight when they quit smoking? Smoking affects a person’s metabolism and also burns calories:
- Smoking burns up to 200 calories a day in a heavy smoker
- Because smoking burns calories, metabolism is boosted (increased) slightly
- Nicotine is an appetite suppressant
Our customized diet, food supplements and hypnosis can help you address your weight gaining concerns. Taking herbs and food supplements can also address some of the health problems that you have acquired during your years of nicotine addiction.
