      In the last thirty years, there have been successful clinical results in using acupuncture to quit smoking. According to my experience, using acupuncture to quit smoking is safe, successful, and has few side effects. It is a real natural therapy. . . An experienced acupuncturist analyses the hobbies of the individual smoker and determines if he/she smokes due to stress, anxiety, depression, or due to brain blood/oxygen insufficiency. These conditions may lead to difficulty in concentration and fatigue; therefore the smoker may look to cigarettes to enhance their energy level and to find a peace of mind. Only choosing the right acu-points according to the individual's situation will the treatment of smoking be effective in both the short and long term.

  • 12/21/98 Filtrim Make your own "light" cigarettes.
      Now a recent university study indicates that smokers recommend using Filtrim(TM), a new stop smoking product from Smoke-Free America, LLC. (Call: 877-FILTRIM) See http://www.filtrim.com " . . . The unique thing about Filtrim' s gradual method is that it uses the cigarette itself to address a smoker' s nicotine addiction, as well as the psychological behavior of smoking. And unlike other methods, smokers enjoy using it and they stick with it, " says Herschel Thompson, manager of Smoke-Free America, LLC. Filtrim looks like a gold cigarette lighter. To use it, the smoker inserts a cigarette into an opening in the device, presses down, completely removes the cigarette, then smokes. This precision apparatus creates micro-perforations in the filter or end of the cigarette. According to clinical trials, this modification allows a smoker to control the levels of toxins and nicotine from a cigarette. By increasing the number of perforations, nicotine and toxins can be gradually decreased in four stages.

  • 02/01/16 NicStik (Canada)
      The original idea for nicotine replacement products came from the tobacco pickers in the 1900's. It was noted that the pickers who were not protected by long gloves were developing toxicity from the plants. When the wrist was exposed the plant extracts were absorbed through the skin into the blood stream. The concept for all nicotine replacement products is to give the brain an amount of the drug so the patient will be able to resist the strong urge to light up. Cigarettes contain many other chemicals and it is much better for them to be exposed to a small amount of nicotine only. The nicotine receptor in the brain is very sensitive and many smokers develop a habit where it has to be satisfied every 2 to 3 hrs. If not they get severe nicotine "stress" and are not able to concentrate on the necessary tasks of life. However more smokers are giving up their habit due to strong pressure from the health groups and the anti-smoking movements that have proved second hand smoke is a carcinogen. We are able to help our patients by giving them a small amount of nicotine as they use other programs to help overcome their addiction. The Nicstick allows our patients to control the amount of drug they need when they need it.
