Can you give me some tips on how to stop smoking?

Tips on how to stop smoking

Smoking is a combination of a nicotine dependence and a behavioral pattern, or habit. So one must tackle both of these areas in order to successfully quit. Nicotine dependence can be gradually reduced through dose controlled sprays and electronic cigarettes, but remember to try to go without these measures for as long as possible between doses. Try to keep your hands busy with beads, crystal palm stones or pens. Try to avoid social situations that provoke cravings until you have these under control. Some of our Health Renewal branches offer detoxifying infusions to assist in recovering the body from addiction, removal of toxins and antioxidant protection, so be sure to come and chat to us if you need help.

Dr. Maricia completed her MBChB degree at MEDUNSA and her two-year internship in Bloemfontein. It was during this time where she developed a strong interest in aesthetic medicine. She then decided to complete an introductory course in Botox and Fillers and fell deeply in love with the dynamic field. She moved to Kimberley in December 2015 and completed her community service in 2016 at the Kimberley Hospital Complex. She is a dedicated health enthusiast and especially takes pride in a healthy lifestyle as well as helping others to achieve the same. She struggled with many health issues during 2016 and could not find a single medical specialist who was able to explain what was wrong with her and how to treat it. She had to figure it out herself. It was through this journey where she came across many other women who dealt with the exact same problem and no one to help them. This made her realise that there has to be another way. There has to be a solution or place to look deeper into someone’s health and to solve imbalances that may occur. Along came The Renewal Institute. Their scope of practice is absolutely everything she is passionate about, everything her lifestyle involves and everything she lives to achieve every single day in her own life. Her goal is to dig deeper into wellness and health and to help people achieve balance and health. She wants people to feel great about themselves and to portray a health and beauty inside and outside. She is very excited about the promising future filled with opportunities to grow as a health ambassador at The Renewal Institute.

    The most difficult thing to do! Best thing is to start an exercise you really enjoy – gasping for breath might help.
