Alcohol and Drug Addiction
Stimulation of acupuncture points on the ear for addictions is a useful tool in relieving the symptoms of withdrawal, including decreasing the severity of cravings, body aches, headaches, nausea, sweating and muscle cramping. People also report that they sleep better, feel less depressed and more relaxed. Based on 3000 years of Chinese medicine, ear acupuncture is being used in over 1000 addiction treatment centres in North America.
Lifestyle Behaviours that respond well to Low Level Laser Therapy include the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Withdrawal from Drugs or Alcohol can be difficult, but with the advancement of Low Level Laser technology withdrawal and cravings can be minimal or non-existent.
If you have never experienced a real addiction, then it may be hard to understand. You may be tempted to criticize, lecture or moralize. We all know that approach doesn't work. The addiction centers in the mind and it is the only disease that tries to convince people that they don't have it. Psychologists call this the state of denial.
Healthy Coping Mechanisms
Many people are stuck in a cycle of addiction because their unhealthy lifestyle behaviour is a substitute for healthy coping mechanisms. This means their emotional growth was stunted at some point and it stays that way until they recover. Using drugs or alcohol feels like a quick escape solution but always results in serious long-term health and relationship problems. Far from seeking substance abuse treatment, many addicts and alcoholics persist in self-destruction despite knowing the extreme consequences.
You want to quit but you feel trapped. It has nothing to do with will power. Your brain is physically addicted to "feeling good" and demands the substance.
