Tobacco Smoke

Smoking tobacco causes approximately 418,000 deaths each year to smokers, and 65,000 additional deaths through passive smoking. Compare this to 105,000 deaths from alcohol, 43,500 from auto accidents, 24,000 homicides, 22,500 deaths from AIDS, 4,500 related to all illegal drugs, and 4,200 from fires. Smoking affects everyone. Second hand smoke alone kills more non-smokers each year than alcohol, auto accidents, homicides, AIDS, fires and illegal drugs! Smoking is also the number one cause of fires that result in loss of life. Children whose parents smoke have more respiratory infections and other lung problems, including reduced lung development. All told, smoking costs America $100 billion dollars a year, much of which is paid in higher taxes for government health programs, as well as other health insurance and medical costs. Taxes even pay for millions of dollars in subsidies to support tobacco lobby giants like R. J. Reynolds and Philip Morris.

With nearly one in every five deaths linked to smoking, it should be clear that the health care profession should work diligently to support all patients in quitting. With this all-natural herbal anti-addiction program to help smokers quit in 7 days, we are very excited about the hope this gives to so many addicted smokers and their families. The program has proven itself 95% effective, even for long term and heavy smokers. With over 60 million Americans using tobacco every day, almost everyone in America is affected in some way. We certainly need to pull together and help each other out if we are to accomplish the kind of change in these statistics that is now achievable with a proven, safe and effective program.

A breakthrough in preventive medicine:

Quit Smoking in 7 Days. No nicotine. All natural. Controls cravings. Eliminates tissue residues.

Fact: 18.7% of our adult patients smoke.

Smoking causes more premature deaths than AIDS, drug abuse, alcohol, injury, suicide and homicide combined! Smoke is a major factor in both cardiovascular disease and cancer, even for non-smokers exposed to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). ETS, a class A carcinogen, causes 53,000 deaths a year according to the EPA.

Fact: 25% of expectant mothers smoke.

Smoke increases spontaneous abortion, doubles low birth weight and is responsible for 10% of infant deaths.

Fact: 26% of high school students smoke.

90% of tobacco addiction starts in children and adolescents. Smoking among 8th graders increased 30% between 1991 and 1994. Students who smoke heavily are 30 times more likely to try illegal drugs. 23% of high school students try to quit in a given 6 month period. They need your guidance to find effective support.

Fact: Smoking cost Hawai’i $292 million in 1994.

Businesses pay $4600 extra annually per smoker through insurances, absenteeism and decreased productivity. Smokers are 50% more likely to be hospitalized, and have 50% higher absenteeism. Smoking hurts everyone.

SmokeFree:

The SmokeFree Program has a tremendous success rate among those who have used the program and remained off tobacco products. The product is designed for all nicotine addictions: cigarette smoking, chewing tobacco and snuff. As with any program, those who succeeded had a true desire to quit.

~1. A is for the Addiction:

The first product is the Anti-Addiction Capsules labelled Formula-A. These capsules contain a blend of 16 all-natural herbal ingredients. They work on the habit of smoking – everything from lighting the cigarette and smoking it, to all the surrounding habits every smoker has and probably doesn’t even realize. Some of these habits are: always knowing where your cigarettes are, lighting up before starting the car, lighting up after a meal or when hearing the phone ring. Little habits not addressed in other ‘stop smoking’ products that for the tobacco user create a sense of loss. This normally leads the smoker to thinking of smoking which ultimately guides him back to tobacco use. The capsules now go to work.

The ingredients in the anti-addiction capsules are:

Latin-name: Common-name: Part:
Capsicum, longum Cayenne pepper dry fruit
Carthamus tinctorius Safflower flower powder
Cymbopogon, citratus Lemon Grass leaf powder
Echinacea, purpurea Echinacea root
Eleutherococcus, senticosus Siberian Ginseng root powder
Glycirrhiza, glabra Licorice root powder
Hordeolum, vulgare Barley grass leaf powder
Lobelia, inflata Lobelia leaf & stem powder
Mentha, piperita Peppermint leaf powder
Myrica, cerifera Bayberry root powder
Passiflora, incarnata Passion Flower leaf & stem powder
Piper, longum Pimpali dry fruit powder
Piper, nigrum Black pepper Bioperine dry fruit powder (enhances bioavailability)
Sambucus, nigra Elderberry flower extract
Smilax, spp. Sarsaparilla root powder
Zingiber, officinalis Ginger root powder

~2. B is for the Being: Nicotine-Free:

The second product is the Denicotizer, Formula-B. These capsules contain a blend of 12 all-natural ingredients. They assist the body in ridding itself of nicotine the body has stored over the years of smoking. The body would rid itself of this stored nicotine naturally after a person quit using tobacco, however, this could take many months. During that time, a former tobacco user would be vulnerable to the nicotine in the body demanding more. In order to have a successful ‘stop smoking’ program, it is essential to cleanse the body of nicotine. In any program dealing with addictive substances, the first need is to cleanse the body of the addictive substance. Nicotine is the most addictive substance known. In 1988, the U.S. Surgeon General reported that “nicotine is just as addictive as heroin and cocaine.” The natural ingredients in Formula-B are:

Latin-name: Common-name: Part:
Arctium, lappa Burdock root
Berberis, aquifolium Oregon Grape root powder
Fel: tauri Ox: gall bile powder
Hordeum, vulgare Barley grass leaf powder
Hydrastis, canadensis Golden Seal leaf & stem powder
Hyssopus, officinalis Hyssop leaf powder
Medicago, sativa Alfalfa leaf & stem powder
Myrica, cerifera Bayberry root powder
Rhamnus, frangula Buckthorn bark powder
Rhamnus, pershiana Cascara sagrada bark powder
Taraxacum, officinale Dandelion root powder
Zingiber, officinalis Ginger root powder

~3. C is for the Continuation of the Cleansing-support:

The Maintenance capsules for continued detoxification of nicotine and anti-addiction support are labelled Formula-C. The formula is nearly identical to Formula-A and contains the same herbs.

~4. D is for Dabbing for the Cravings:

The fourth product in the SmokeFree Program in The Essential Solution for cravings, called Formula D. This is an aroma therapy product. When getting an urge to smoke, place a drop of the liquid on your finger and rub it under your nose, then take a few deep breaths. The aroma will travel to the demand center and help satisfy the urge to smoke. If needed, also dab the essential oils on your temples and wrists, where circulation is close to the surface for systemic absorption. The essential oils in this formula are:

  • Ylang Ylang
  • Rosemary
  • Peppermint
  • Lemon
  • Camphor
  • Eucalyptus

To begin the program, throw away all cigarettes, take the anti-addiction capsules at night before going to be, then continue the program for the next seven days as directed. Upon completion of the program, you should be ‘smoke-free.’  If you were to light up, your reaction would be similar to the first time you had a cigarette and experienced the coughing, gagging, or dizziness. It simply would not taste good.

More options can be provided for those in need:

Nutrition for the Smoke-Ender:

Vitamins:

A:

Vitamin A & Carotenoids are protective to the linings of the lungs. Limit Vitamin A intake if pregnancy is a possibility. 25,000 to 35,000 I.U. of beta carotene daily is suggested.

B:

B-Complex Vitamins (Coenzymate B Complex, 1-3 times a day early in the day) supports cellular energy and nerve functions. Activated forms of B vitamins bypass the need for other factors before they can be utilized.

Vitamin B1 (up to 100 mg/day) is important to prevent nerve damage by nicotine.

Vitamin B3 (Flush Free Niacin) can reduce cravings. Avoid high levels of straight niacin if there is liver stress.

Vitamin B5 (up to 1,500 mg/day) helps support adrenal function.

Vitamin B6 (up to 50 mg/day) helps support adrenal function.

Vitamin B12: Extra sublingual B12 (Methylcobalamin) is also helpful for neuroprotection.

TMG (up to 3 scoops of 500 mg daily dissolved under the tongue or in drinks). Trimethylglycine is an antioxidant, oxygenator and energizer.

Phosphatidyl Choline (PhosChol 900, up to 3 a day) supports sensory nerve function as a precursor for the neurotransmitter Acetyl-choline, which is depleted by nicotine. Repleating this important brain nutrient helps reduce tobacco cravings.

C & P:

Vitamin C & Bioflavonoids at least 1,500 to 3,000 mg/day (Magnesium ascorbate or polyascorbate/ester). Maxogenol (up to 3 a day) supplies bioflavonoids (OPCs) as protective antioxidants.

E:

Vitamin E (Unique E, 1-2 capsules daily). Unique E supplies the only stable, undiluted, unalterred Vitamin E complex supplement available. As much as 3,000 I.U. per day is suggested by some authorities.

Q:

Coenzyme Q10 (up to 400 mg/day, e.g. CoQ10 with Hawthorn up to 4 times a day) if there are any indications of heart stress.

Minerals:

Ca:

Calcium is alkalizing and helps with detoxification. Alkalizing reduces both cravings and cleansing symptoms. Structural Integrity Plus (a tablet up to 3 times a day) or Sango-Coral complex capsules (3 times a day) are recommended.

Mg:

Magnesium (up to 800 mg/day as Magnesium glycinate, taurate and/or ascorbate) helps relax muscles and nerves, and allows improved circulation.

S:

Sulphur (high potency NAC, up to 2 a day) is one of the top 4 minerals in the body and is essential for both detoxification and antioxidant protection (e.g. as glutathione).

Se:

Selenium monomethionine (200 mcg/day) is the preferred organic form. Selenium works synergistically with Vitamin E to protect cells against free radical damage.

Zn:

Zinc monomethionine (Opti-L-Zinc) is one of the best absorbed forms.

Multi:

Multivitamin/mineral (StarGold) provides essential vitamins and minerals in a cleansing, energizing green herbal base.

Homeopathic Multivitamin/mineral/amino/cofactor/botanical/glandular (Natural Resource A-Z) stimulates cellular uptake and utilization of other nutritional products. When taking B vitamins, bright yellow urine indicates intestinal absorption, but a lack of cellular utilization. When Natural Resource A-Z is added, urine becomes less yellow, providing visual proof of its cellular effectiveness.

Glandular:

Adrenal supports energy for detoxification.

Brain supports nerve cell detoxification and repair.

Lung provides direct support to the lung tissue for cleansing and regeneration.

Thymus enhances immune function.
