It has been known for decades that smoking can cause cancer, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, premature aging, and a variety of other problems. But there is a well-kept secret that the smokers do not know…
There are over 600 ingredients and 4000 chemicals contained in a cigarette. In addition to tar and nicotine, cigarettes can contain formaldehyde, ammonia, DDT, arsenic, butane, propanone and even cadmium.
The good news is that the human body can recover from almost anything. Even after prolonged smoking the body will begin to repair itself on the day smoking cessation begins. Self-Healing begins almost immediately, within minutes of the final cigarette.
Once the last cigarette is extinguished, blood pressure and heart rate return to normal almost immediately. Twenty-four hours later, carbon monoxide levels are not found in the blood. Inflammation begins to decrease and oxygen floods the body. Over time, the body will return to normal and repair itself, often to the stage before smoking.
But what about e-cigarettes? Is it safe? E-cigarettes also contain a host of additives and chemicals and can make a smoker even more addicted.
The real goal is to quit smoking right away. Do it easily with Medical Acupuncture at Satory Acupuncture Center and you will be on the path to improved health and well-being regardless of time.
