Smoking

 

 

smoking-pigeonAll of us know by now, or at least I hope so, that the smoking habit is a real killer!

I remember as  kid my parents telling me never to start smoking!  But my father did (and he eventually passed from emphysema).

But it’s hard for someone to actually believe that smoking is bad, when you feel fine, and others smokers that you know also feel fine!

This dichotomy between one’s own experiences and what one is being told, makes it a tough sell!

smokingHowever nowadays the detailed information available to us makes it even harder!  The evidence is overwhelming!  Below I offer a summary of what is now known.  If  a smoker is aware of these FACTS and doesn’t immediately seek help to quit, they are probably deserving of the inevitable consequences!

  • Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals!  At least 50 of these are KNOWN CARCINOGENS (cause cancer in humans) and many are just classified as poisonous!
  • Tobacco kills up to HALF of its regular users!
  • Tobacco caused 100 MILLION deaths in the 20th century!
  • Cigarettes are on of the few products, which can be sold legally, which can harm or kill you over time, if used as intended!
  • Scientists claim that the average smoker will lose 14 YEARS of their life due to smoking!
  • Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled, and has been found in every part of the body  as well as breast milk!
  • Sugar approximates to roughly 20% of a cigarette, and many diabetics are unaware of this secret sugar intake.  Also the effects on the body of inhaling burning sugar is unknown!
  • “Lite” cigarettes are produced by infusing tobacco with CO2 and superheating it until the tobacco “puffs up” like expanding foam.  the expanded tobacco then fills the same paper tube as a “regular” tobacco!  
  • On average, smokers draw on “lite” and menthol cigarettes harder than regular ones, causing the same levels of tar and nicotine to be consumed!
  • The manufacturer uses several active ingredients, and special methods of production to ensure that the nicotine levels in a cigarette is many time more potent than that of a tobacco plant!
  • Cigarettes cost a lot of money, $5 to $14 (in New York)!  That’s a lot of cash (more than $5000 for NY) over a year, even if you only smoke one pack per day!

We have many methods available today, to help a person quit, such as:

  • Gradual reduction
  • Nicotine replacement therapy
  • Patches
  • Gum
  • Nasal sprays
  • Inhalers
  • Hypnosis
  • Acupuncture
  • PEMF therapy
  • Low level laser therapy

These methods have varying degrees of cost, time, and success!  And, most important of all, the person MUST want to quit! If someone really enjoys smoking, and they don’t have any medical symptoms (yet), they will not stop, no matter what method they use!

Tobacco is a nasty addiction that ONLY affects your health and life in a negative way.  Think of what you could do with all that extra cash you will have on hand after you stop!

With the huge downsides of the smoking habit, which include poor health, complaints from friends and spouse, dealing with the many “Non Smoking” areas being enforced now, and the cost, it would behoove any current smoker to find a quitting option that will work for them!

TOXIC!

ToxicEver wonder why so may people are sick and dying?  The older I get, the more I hear of people succumbing to chronic diseases and some dying.  I know of a few friends that have been affected as well!

Well I wonder this on a day to day basis, as I am a holistic practitioner, working with a Naturopathic Doctor, in a Holistic Wellness center.  We see people suffering from a vast range of problems, that have “accumulated” over many decades of life.  Just about all these issues can be attributed to toxins and a lack of proper nutrition.

There seems to be a common thread in just about ALL these people – chronic toxic exposure – coupled with the inability of their own bodies to eliminate these toxins.

And why can’t their bodies eliminate?  Well, they haven’t been giving the body what it need to perform at the best level! Clean nutritious food, air, water, and environment!

Unfortunately it’s getting harder and harder to ingest a “CLEAN, NUTRITIOUS” source of food, drink from a “CLEAN, NON CONTAMINATED” source of water, and breath real “FRESH AIR”.

The other problem is our exposure to toxins in our immediate environment.  Where we work, how we clean our houses, and or exposure to EMFs!

If we don’t go the extra mile to obtain good sources of food, water, and air, and mitigate our exposure to chemicals, we will suffer!

Toxic2We also must mitigate our exposure!  Some people are not aware of potential sources of toxins:Toxins TILTThe exposure to these toxins, coupled with the inability to rid the body of them, results in just about ALL chronic disease!

And it goes even further to include STRESS!  FYI there are 3 basic types of stress PHYSICAL, CHEMICAL, and EMOTIONAL!  Your body does not know or care about which stress it is – it reacts the same.  So you must also address the emotional issues.

So to conclude, the answer to the opening question is now very clear!  We can all help eliminate chronic disease, and it’s consequences, by making simple changes, Eat organic foods (or grow your own), drink only distilled water (it’s the best to help detox the body), and check your environment – make the needed changes to mitigate your exposure!

Lasers To Implement Health!

We have recently added another tool in our arsenal  – an Induction Laser, also referred to as Low Level Light Therapy.

The New Tool

The New Tool

This is truly a unique combination of ancient information and new technology!  The first working laser was developed in 1960.  First laser

Laser treatment offers a very unique way to present information to the body.  The body is a “light body” (actually a crystalline substructure) and when we are able to present information to the body through the light, the body receives it in a way that is very profound and unique, and it responds exceptionally well!  Now lasers are quite small because they a solid state, and use much smaller amounts of power.

Laser diode

 Our new Aura PTL II laser is utilized for a variety of health applications, from easing chronic pain, to mitigating skin problems, allergies, weight control, and even to stop smoking!  The laser itself can be used as an acupuncture needle to stimulate various points on the body (with no needles!).   But this laser combines various carrier frequencies (carrier waves enable the transmission of information such as radio) with certain frequencies riding on it.  These various frequencies represent many items of our world such as types of foods, allergy causing substances, and nutritionals.

There are about 130,000 items, that are placed in 74 programs that available thru the PTL Laser therapy ranging from sensitivities that balance the body and helps the body reset itself so it does not continue to respond to things inappropriately like pollens, foods, environmental, animals, etc., to sleep issues, stress, pain, nerve issues, hormones, and the list goes on and on!  By communicating these frequencies (that the body has lost, due to trauma or illness) the body can deal with these issues effectively.

We use these programs in various combinations to help our clients get well.  The treatments can be for 5 to 30 minutes (depending on the programs utilized) and are completely non-invasive and pain free.  Treatment plans can be anywhere from 3 to 12+ visits.  As an example the Stop Smoking protocol treatment is only 3 visits, with compatible supplementation for a 2 month period.  You basically stop smoking after the first visit!

By combining these laser treatments with a suitable supplementation plan, we get extraordinary results.  I would highly recommend having this type of treatment for any chronic, or pain condition you may be suffering from.

To Your Health!
