Benefits of laser therapy in quitting smoking
Quitting smoking can prove a difficult task, especially for people, who have turned the cigarette with morning coffee into a routine part of their everyday life. The problem is that smoking is more than just a part of your daily routine – nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, including irritability, cravings, excessive hunger and headache. The good news is that there is a fast and efficient solution, gaining more and more popularity.
Laser therapy has the highest success rate, compared to any type of smoking cessation method. According to experts, the method has a 90% quit rates and also takes no more than one hour to complete the procedure. Its mechanism is simple: a beam of light at a high wavelength is produced by the cold laser and then the light is focused on multiple acupoints. Stimulating them causes the organism to secrete endorphins, hormones that relieve stress and improve the mood. Moreover, these neurotransmitters block the nicotine receptors in the brain, which alleviates nicotine craving and completely
eliminates nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
Research has demonstrated that endorphin levels are closely related to addiction behavior. Intake of nicotine artificially increases endorphin production and thus, causes the pleasurable, addictive feeling, associated with smoking. Once the levels of the hormone decrease, however, the smoker experiences the negative effects of the nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Laser therapy can help you overcome the nicotine cravings and will completely remove the withdrawal effects, associated with quitting smoking.
The nicotine laser therapy is based on the ancient Asian art of acupuncture. Acupuncture is known to relieve stress, pain and various discomforts. Laser therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the symptoms of nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Moreover, it is also demonstrated to reduce tension, improve circulation and allow you to relax more easily. The laser treatment was introduced some time ago, but its popularity has increased significantly in the last 35 years. It has been recognized as a major and highly effective treatment for all sorts of addiction, including nicotine dependency.
