Quit Smoking with Chinese Medicine

First of all, don’t give yourself too hard a time.

Most people find quitting smoking to be a difficult endeavour.

You have taken an important step towards a healthier lifestyle by looking for a
treatment that may help you.

There are many reasons why you should quit smoking. It is important to have
control over your habits and receive appropriate treatment along the way. With
our help and treatments, we aim to improve your overall health significantly and
let you enjoy a prolonged life with your loved ones.

Smoking is a physical and psychological habit that is hard to eliminate. You will
face difficult physical symptoms that are often coupled with psychological states.
Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, fatigue, headache or flu-like aches.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) aims to facilitate your journey of becoming
healthier through different treatment methods. We can help you fight the urge
and resist the triggers together.

Smoking can be a multifaceted and personalised habit often interwoven into
various aspects of life such as socialisation, solitude, work breaks and
stress/anxiety management.

Although people can differ in regards to the reasons why they smoke, there are
several principles and actions that usually provide for an easier quitting process.

Most people find that quitting is easier if they make a plan. Ideally it is best to
choose a time that is not too stressful and that allows you to get away from your
usual routines that involve smoking.

If you don’t have this luxury then simply thinking of the typical times when you
smoke and coming up with some strategies or alternative activities can go a long
way.

An important thing to appreciate is that cigarettes and nicotine have key
functions in people’s lives and these often need to be accounted for via some
technique or replacement method.

For example an increase in exercise, periods of deep breathing or meditation can
alter brain chemistry in a way that is similar to that when smoking.

Stress or anxiety management are also key factors that will need to be
addressed, any brief activity that you find relaxing can be done routinely on your
breaks during work or any other key times.

Acupuncture assists people to quit by helping to regulate the actions of
endorphin and other neurotransmitters that are thrown into disarray when one
stops smoking

In this way it can assist with lessening the frequency and duration of physical
cravings.

Generally acupuncture is given twice weekly for the first month, depending on
the level of addiction. What Happens When I Quit?

  • In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved.
  • You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility.
  • You’ll make a saving on your health and your finances in the long-run.

What are the benefits of TCM?

  • All natural ingredients
  • Little to no known side effects
  • Safe and easy to use.

What can I do additionally?

  • Frequent exercise increases chemical hormones in the brain, which help aid to calm the body and the mind toward stress reduction.
  • Avoid eating junk food, caffeine or alcoholic drinks that may trigger your
    cravings for cigarettes.
  • Avoid social situations where you are surrounded by smokers and
    cigarettes until you are free from any desires.

Sugary food labels

Do you want to limit the amount of sugar in your family’s diet but get totally confused when looking at food products and labels at the supermarket?
Sugar comes in many disguises – there are 40+ names for different types of sugar that can be found in our food products – no wonder we are confused!

Some of the more common ones you will see are:
• Dextrose
• Fructose
• Sucrose
• Glucose
• Golden Syrup
• Maple Syrup
• Honey
• Malt
• Maltose
• Lactose
• Sugar
• Brown sugar
• Caster sugar
• Raw sugar

While some of these will be sugars that are found naturally in whole foods such as lactose in milk or fructose in whole fruits, others will have been added to the product by the manufacturer. Keep in mind that Lactose and fructose can also be added extras as well. AAAAARRRRHHHH

Food label guidelines do not enforce that added or natural sugars be listed separately although some manufacturers will clarify this information willingly.

Following are some tips to help identify the amount and type of sugar in a food:

1. Read the nutrition panel to identify the amount of sugar – does it meet the daily recommendations?

2. If the amount of sugar per 100g is more than 15g check the ingredients for what is natural from a whole food and what is added.

3. If a product states that it is all natural sugar – check the ingredients to see if it is from a whole food such as fruit or just fructose for example.

4. Natural sugar products can still exceed the recommended intakes.

5. To check similar items for one with less sugar – compare the 100g column on the nutrition panels for amount and then check the ingredients list for whole foods
Whole foods are whole fruits, vegetables, grains etc. A label may state that fructose from whole fruit or just the fruit. If it states fructose from fruit juice it will most likely be high in sugar.

If an ingredient is listed as just fructose or glucose it will most likely be added sugars.

This guide will help you to decipher labels while shopping.
