New Year’s is a great excuse to quit smoking. After all, that ‘this is the start of something new’ vibe is still hanging in the air, the stress of the holidays is over, and, of course, there’s the tradition of the ‘new year’s resolution.
While quitting can be difficult, your friendly Toronto chiropractic clinic is with you, to not only offer you support, but to help you to reach your goal of either cutting back or quitting through ongoing chiropractic treatments.
Chiropractic Treatment Helps to Combat Negative Effects of Smoking
The health risks associated with smoking are numerous, and they’re certainly one of the most common reasons for trying to quit. Smoking has been linked to respiratory disease (such as asthma and emphysema), circulatory problems (such as blood pressure irregularity and heart disease), and neurological problems (such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s).
While there’s no way to “un-smoke” years worth of cigarettes, regular chiropractic treatments can help to improve your circulatory system, improving neurological functionality, and help your body to start repairing musculoskeletal damage that has accumulated over the years.
Chiropractic Treatment Can Reduce Frequency & Severity of Cravings
When those who attempt to quit end up sliding back into the habit, it’s very often not cravings alone that cause them to slip up; it’s often the cause of a ‘breaking point’, or a single event or condition that drives them back to the comfort of nicotine.
Chiropractic treatment can help to address many of these triggers, including chronic pain, stress and anxiety, headaches, and insomnia.
Chiropractic treatment also tends to help to balance out your body chemistry, which can help to reduce the severity of the cravings.
