Clinically Proven Quit Smoking Program

 

  • Are you tired of “trying” to quit, only to relapse a few months later?

  • Are you tired of having suboptimal health because of your habit?

  • Are you tired of constantly thinking about what life would be like as a non smoker?

 

Then this is the program for you!

There are so many ways these days to try to quit smoking:

  1. The nicotine patch

  2. Cold turkey

  3. Various quit smoking aids, etc. etc. etc.

 

Why should you try this program?

When many people think of hypnotherapy they think of people clucking on stage like chickens, or roaring like lions. However, hypnotherapy is much more than that and is clinically practiced by many practitioners to help people overcome debilitating habits, fears and phobias. In fact, it has been found that hypnotherapy can possibly double the success rate of other quit smoking methods you have already tried.

 

The program is simple, fast and easy. It involves a 2 hour hypnotherapy session with Dr. Stix. This session is powerful enough that it is the only in house session that is needed to shift your addiction. After that you will be given a personalized hypnotherapy CD to listen to at home.

 

Additional support is also offered in assisting the body to remove the chemical body burden and start out on a "clean" slate.  As we all know, there are many negative health consequences related to smoking, and cigarettes greatly increase our toxic load. 

 

Toxins in Cigarettes

 

If that is not enough, lets learn about the toxins that are in those cigarettes.

 

Chemicals in Cigarettes: Carcinogens

 

A carcinogen is defined as any substance that can cause or aggravate cancer. Approximately 60 of the chemicals in cigarettes are known to cause cancer.

 

TSNAs

Tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines (TSNAs) are known to be some of the most potent carcinogens present in smokeless tobacco, snuff and tobacco smoke.

 

Benzene

Benzene can be found in pesticides and gasoline. It is present in high levels in cigarette smoke and accounts for half of all human exposure to this hazardous chemical.

 

Pesticides

Pesticides are used on our lawns and gardens, and inhaled into our lungs via cigarette smoke.

 

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is a chemical used to preserve dead bodies, and is responsible for some of the nose, throat and eye irritation smokers experience when breathing in cigarette smoke.

 

Chemicals in Cigarettes:

Toxic Metals Toxic / heavy metals are metals and metal compounds that have the potential to harm our health when absorbed or inhaled. In very small amounts, some of these metals support life, but when taken in large amounts, can become toxic.

 

Arsenic

Commonly used in rat poison, arsenic finds its way into cigarette smoke through some of the pesticides that are used in tobacco farming.

 

Cadmium

Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal that is used in batteries. Smokers typically have twice as much cadmium in their bodies as nonsmokers.

 

Chemicals in Cigarettes: Radioactive Toxic Metals

There are a couple of toxic metals in cigarette smoke that carry an extra punch of danger for anyone breathing it in: they are radioactive.

 

Radioactive Cigarette Smoke

Lead-210 (Pb-210) and polonium-210 (Po-210) are poisonous, radioactive heavy metals that research has shown to be present in cigarette smoke.

 

Chemicals in Cigarettes: Poisons

Poison is defined as any substance that, when introduced to a living organism, causes severe physical distress or death. Science has discovered approximately 200 poisonous gases in cigarette smoke.

 

Ammonia

Ammonia compounds are commonly used in cleaning products and fertilizers. Ammonia is also used to boost the impact of nicotine in manufactured cigarettes.

 

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is present in car exhaust and is lethal in very large amounts. Cigarette smoke can contain high levels of carbon monoxide.

 

Hydrogen Cyanide

Hydrogen cyanide was used to kill people in the gas chambers in Nazi Germany during World War II. It can be found in cigarette smoke. Nicotine Nicotine is a poison used in pesticides and is the addictive element in cigarettes.
