Stop Smoking Alternative That is Successful

June 1st, 2012 · No Comments

Dr CE Gant is one of the top Integrative medicine doctors in the country and also an expert on drug addiction. His article below outlines an effective way to quit smoking without drugs.

Irrational Stop Smoking Treatments Result in Sustained Irrational Behaviors

Despite a well-publicized cure for nicotine addiction (1) and other educational efforts, according to the Center for Disease Control, after decades of decline, the smoking rate in the United States has plateaued over the past seven years (2). About one in five American adults or an estimated 45.3 million people is a smoker (19.3% of all adults, aged 18 years or older). That percentage has remained virtually unchanged since 2005.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States (3) accounting for approximately 443,000 deaths, or 1 of every 5 deaths, in the United States each year (4). Another study (5) also released in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report found that despite an increasing number of laws that restrict smoking in public places, about 40 percent of nonsmoking adults and 54 percent of children still show evidence of tobacco exposure through secondhand smoke. Virtually all children who live with smokers — 98 percent — have some exposure to the toxic chemicals.

“We hope that this report is a wake-up call for the continuing threat that tobacco use poses,” CDC (6) Director Thomas Frieden told reporters.

A wake-up call!?

Perhaps Thomas Frieden, the CDC, the American Heart and Lung Associations, and every so-called authoritative expert and health organization needs a frigging wake-up call.

IRRATIONAL STOP SMOKING TREATMENTS DON’T WORK.

That’s why you are impotent. Not only do they not work, conventional treatments for nicotine addiction can’t possibly work because they ignore or violate the fundamental laws of biochemistry and neurophysiology which govern addictive behaviors. Currently accepted treatments for nicotine addiction are mostly worthless and many such as drug therapies may be as dangerous as tobacco itself. Just another example of widespread negligence, incompetence and fraud in American healthcare. The healthcare crisis is a crisis of stupidity.

Nicotine Addiction Solution

Here is the answer to nicotine addiction in a nutshell. If want more detail, read one of my books or take a look at my outcome studies. Our brain chemistry, specifically certain neurotransmitters or “feel good” mood hormones, govern our behaviors. If you don’t believe this, try holding your breath for a while. In seconds to minutes of not breathing, your brain chemistry will force you to breath despite your will power.

How To Quit Smoking Naturally

March 28th, 2010 · No Comments

The addictive substance in cigarettes, nicotine, is one of the most powerful poisons on earth.

Nicotine is so toxic that as few as two or three drops of pure nicotine applied directly to the skin of an average person will kill him or her within minutes. In lower doses, it can cause high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, heart palpitations and irregular heartbeat, tremors, convulsions, and central nervous system over-stimulation. There is no known antidote for nicotine poisoning.

How is it that so many people habitually use such a powerful and potentially deadly toxic substance on a daily basis?

How is it that smokers who are addicted to nicotine are given prescriptions to the very substance they’re hooked on in order to stop smoking? Doesn’t this seem strange?

The answer to both questions lies in the way our brains work. And by the way, so does the answer to the question, “How can I quit smoking without resorting to using nicotine (and other stop-smoking drugs) and without risking further negative health consequences?”

One Cigarette Can Have Harmful Effect On Arteries Of Young Healthy Adults

November 13th, 2009 · No Comments

Even just one cigarette can have serious adverse effects on young adults, according to research conducted at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress 2009. The study found that smoking one cigarette increases the stiffness of the arteries in the age group of 18-30 years by as much as 25%.

When arteries become stiff, this increases the risk for heart disease or stroke. The heart has to work harder when the arteries become stiff or rigid which increases resistance in the blood vessels. Even smoking just a few cigarettes a day can impact the health of the arteries. This was revealed in the study when the group of young people in the age range of 20-24 were placed under physical stress (e.g. exercise).

Patrick Swayze Addictions

September 15th, 2009 · No Comments

By now, the world has read the sad news about Patrick Swayze’s death as a result of pancreatic cancer. Perhaps what people didn’t know about him is that he had struggled over the years with addiction to alcohol and cigarettes.

Over the course of the years, Patrick had a three-pack-a-day cigarette habit in addition to his alcohol addiction that grew worse after his adored father died in 1982 from a heart attack.

During his illness, he even said in his own words that he is a ‘miracle man’ who is fighting a winning battle against pancreatic cancer. But that still didn’t stop him from puffing on cigarettes between breaks from shooting his latest TV show.

In one interview I saw with Barbara Walters, he was sounding like a “tough guy” and that he was going to beat this cancer disease. But then he admitted that he was still smoking!

In another interview he actually admitted that smoking had something to do with his pancreatic cancer.

Toxins in Electronic Cigarettes

July 24th, 2009 · No Comments

The photo shown is a disassembled cigarette-shaped electronic cigarette.
A. LED light cover
B. battery (also houses circuitry)
C. atomizer (heating element)
D. cartridge (mouthpiece)

The mouthpiece is a small disposable plastic cup affixed to the end of the tube. Inside, the piece contains an absorbent material that is moistened with a flavored propylene glycol/nicotine liquid solution. The mouthpiece is referred to in the industry as a “cartridge”. When the liquid in the cartridge has been depleted, it can either be refilled by the user, or replaced with another pre-filled cartridge.

Federal health officials stated this week they have found cancer-causing ingredients in electronic cigarettes, despite manufacturers’ claims the products are safer than tobacco cigarettes.

FDA scientists said they tested 19 varieties of cigarettes, half of which contained forms of nitrosamine, a carcinogen known to cause cancer in humans. Many products which claimed to contain no nicotine actually had low levels of the stimulant.

Nurses and Smoking

A recent UCLA School of Nursing study is the first to reveal the devastating consequences of smoking on the nursing profession. Published in the November–December edition of the journal Nursing Research, the findings describe smoking trends and death rates among U.S. nurses and emphasize the importance of supporting smoking cessation programs in the nursing field.

“Nurses witness firsthand how smoking devastates the health of their patients with cancer and respiratory and cardiovascular diseases,” said principal investigator Linda Sarna, D.N.Sc, a professor at the UCLA School of Nursing. “Yet nurses struggle with nicotine addiction like the rest of the 45 million smokers in America. We are concerned that nurses who smoke may be less apt to support tobacco-control programs or encourage their patients to quit.”

Sarna led a team of researchers who analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study, a historic study on women’s health. Launched at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the mid-1970s, the study relied upon surveys completed every two years by 237,648 female registered nurses about their health, including smoking habits.

The Nurses’ Health Study is the largest study of women’s health in the world,” Sarna said. “From a workforce perspective, however, the findings also hold a mirror up to the well-being of nurses, the largest group of health care professionals in the country.”

The current UCLA research explored changes in smoking trends and death rates among female nurses enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study between 1976 and 2003, a span of 27 years.

The research compared the differences in death rates among nurses who never smoked, former smokers and current smokers. In all age groups, roughly twice as many current smokers had died in comparison to nurses who never smoked.

Peer Pressure Hook

September 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Peer pressure, including the media, is one of the main reasons many people smoke.

Before World War I, tobacco was smoked mainly in the form of cigars and primarily by the wealthy. Cigarettes, which were basically leftovers of the cigar making process, were used by the less fortunate.

The number of people who smoked cigarettes boomed when tobacco companies started to mass-produce them. Their clientele: soldiers of World War I. This marketing broadened of course after the war.

In my research, I discovered ads from JAMA – The Journal of the American Medical Association that promoted various brands. One ad pictured a military doctor promoting Camels. Wow! Not only are you being patriotic by using them but a doctor is promoting the brand. I am sure this ad influenced many to smoke, especially military men and women. If your peer was a soldier next to you that was smoking, don’t you think that would have a powerful influence on you?

Another JAMA ad I discovered was telling you how much more “pleasure” you will get with the Chesterfield brand. An ad will state anything favorable to entice you to take it up.

It is my understanding that the AMA did not take a position against smoking until the 1980s even though there was plenty of evidence that it was dangerous to your health and could cause cancer among other diseases. Do you think money influenced this attitude?

Smoking has been very prevalent in the movies and especially in the 1950s and 1960s, on television. Even the actors were advertising various brands in commercials during a TV show. They made it seem classy and romantic.

Some of you may recall the “Marlboro Man” (rugged-looking cowboy). There were actually several men who modeled for print and TV ads. At least two of them have died of lung cancer from smoking.

Corporate Funding By Cigarette Company Taints Lung Cancer Study

April 19th, 2008 · No Comments

cigarette buttsCorporate financing can have subtle effects on research and lead to bias. Studies have shown that sponsored research tends to reach conclusions that favor the sponsor, which is why disclosure is encouraged. The tobacco industry has a long history of underwriting research, sometimes through independent-sounding foundations, to make cigarettes seem less dangerous.

In October 2006, Dr. Claudia Henschke of Weill Cornell Medical College jolted the cancer world with a study saying that 80 percent of lung cancer deaths could be prevented through widespread use of CT scans.

Small print at the end of the study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, noted that it had been financed in part by a little-known charity called the Foundation for Lung Cancer: Early Detection, Prevention & Treatment. A review of tax records by The New York Times shows that the foundation was underwritten almost entirely by $3.6 million in grants from the parent company of the Liggett Group, maker of Liggett Select, Eve, Grand Prix, Quest and Pyramid cigarette brands.
