I’m a big believer in a multi-pronged approach to resolving things. It boosts up the probability for success. And today I’m going to discuss a multi-pronged way to quit smoking. In acupuncture, there is a well known protocol called the NADA that involves the stimulation of five ear acupoints. However, I provide an enhanced form that involves stimulation with microcurrent and color light. Additionally, stress and anxiety points can be added to prevent the most common urge trigger for smoking. Ear beads are left taped on to the five ear points to provide constant stimulation. Another remedy that can be added is CBD (from industrial hemp, not cannabis). It is probably the best thing that can be used internally for anxiety. It can effect specific receptors in a beneficial way that no other known substance can. The vaporized form can help compensate for the oral habit of holding something to your lips. I’d like to clarify vaporized- not smoked. I believe that anything inhaled that is smoked is detrimental. Be sure however, to obtain CBD from a reputable source. There are new CBD companies popping everywhere and there is no standardization yet for quality control. However, here at Miami Acupuncture Therapy, we did all the research to screen out for the highest quality of CBD.
What the patients are saying
“I will begin by saying that Miami Acupuncture Therapy & Dr Melero NEVER disappoints me. I always return when everything else fails me…The place has an excellent ambiance, very relaxing and most importantly very clean”
“Adrian Melero helped my heel pain and return to competing much sooner than I expected.”
-Elliott Mason- Professional Endurance Athlete
“So many wonderful things to say about Adrian. He was highly recommended by my uncle’s coworker that suffered of carpal tunnel and was against having the surgery, which turned out to be exactly my case. Therefore, I was excited about trying acupuncture and with a couple of acupuncture and heated lamp treatments, I manage the pain without pain medication and feel a lot better. Aside from it all, Lisette is wonderful therapist, when she massages me I always feel extremely relaxed and as if all my stress is fully gone! Also from day one, I immediately loved how clean this place is. They truly are a great team that do wonders together! I recommend them.”
“I had been suffering from lower back pain for weeks. The orthopedic put me on steroids for two weeks. I didn’t like the idea of taking prescription drugs because of the side effects. I decided to schedule a visit, and it was a game changer. My shoulder pain and lower back pain disappeared. I’m so glad I did. I will do two more sessions and then will continue as needed, again I’m very pleased with the results.”
