“Just Stop” Program

A Smoking Cessation Program That Works

Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do; however, it is one of the most beneficial steps you can take to better your health. The “Just Stop!” smoking cessation program is another integrated approach offered at Nourishing Wellness.  The “Just Stop!” program utilizes Low Level Laser Therapy, herbal supplementation and homeopathy to help reduce stress, cravings, and the irritability that often go along with smoking cessation.  Our program goes a step further by also helping to remove harmful toxins known to store in the blood, tissue and cells through habitual use of tobacco products.  The “Just Stop!” program will not only help you to stop smoking, you’ll also eliminate the longer-term side effects related to smoking.  The “Just Stop!” program also is beneficial for quitting cigars and chewing tobacco.

We start by stimulating specific acupuncture points on the body that are associated with cravings.  The use of the Low Level Light Therapy triggers an endorphin and serotonin release that effectively and naturally calms the body, reducing stress and the irritability many patients experience during the first 72 hours of being smoke-free.  The homeopathic and herbal formula helps diminish and manage stress and cravings while also pushing out of the body the toxins that trigger cravings.

If you are a smoker, then surely you are already aware of the danger that you are putting yourself in every time you have a cigarette. Heart disease and cancer are the most hazardous effects of smoking, but there are a slew of other conditions that effect smokers on a daily basis.

There is hope.

I’ve tried a lot of options. This is the only one that worked. Even after two months, I’m amazed I still don’t have any cravings!

Quit smoking and add years to your life!

  • Within 20 minutes after you smoke that last cigarette, your body begins a series of changes that will continue for years
  • 12 hours after quitting, carbon monoxide levels in your blood drops to normal
  • After 24 hours, your lungs begin to clear out accumulated mucous and tar. Your pulse rate and blood pressure begin to lower
  • After 48 hours, your sense of smell and taste begin to improve as nicotine is eliminated from your body
  • After 72 hours, your bronchial tubes begin to relax, making breathing easier and lung capacity increases
  • After 2 to 12 weeks, circulation improves, making walking and physical activity easier
  • After 2 weeks to 3 months, your heart attack risk begins to drop and your lung function begins to improve
  • One to 9 months after quitting, coughing and sinus congestion decreases. Lung function improves, shortness of breath decreases, energy level increases
  • 1 year after quitting, your added risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smokers
  • 10 years after quitting, your lung cancer death rate is about half that of a smokers. Your risks of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decreases
  • 15 years after quitting, your risk of coronary heart disease and lung cancer is back to that of someone who has never smoked

We understand that quitting smoking can cause cravings that are not only difficult, they can be more intense than those of a habitual heroin user.  We are proud to offer the “Just Stop!” program and believe it is one of the best, most successful and easiest ways to “Just Stop!”.

  • Smokers draw on ‘lite’ and menthol cigarettes harder (on average) than regular cigarettes; causing the same overall levels of tar and nicotine to be consumed.

  • Nicotine addiction is worse than a heroin addiction
  • There no is difference between regular use and only a few cigarettes a day

  • 3 Visits over a one week period – typically Tuesday, Thursday, and the following Monday
  • Each visit takes less than 15 minutes to complete
  • Use of the herbal product for 1 week in conjunction with the laser visits
  • Use of the homeopathy during the week of smoking cessation and then ideally continued for 1 month for each year of smoking

People considering this program should be committed to quitting and improving their long-term quality of life.  You will be asked to complete a questionnaire prior to qualifying for this program.

How Much is Your Health Worth??

On April 6, I will be 1 YR SMOKE FREE!!! I can’t thank you enough. I had no withdrawal symptoms or cravings that I’ve experienced with other treatments. I was smiling the first and second day instead of snapping at people. Co-workers couldn’t understand why I was so happy and easy to get along with and yet I just quit smoking. This really works! I’ve been smoke free since my first treatment and finally I’m living life! I’m happy, healthy, energetic, and have smiled since day one because I can live my life in control of it. Nicotine no longer controls me!  Lauri

 “We began offering the “Just Stop!” protocol a few months ago and it worked great. We can report that 4 out of 4 patients are completely smoke free! Anything that can help better than 80% of smokers quit quickly and easily is a homerun.” – Dr. Bryan Shuetz, D.C

“The “Just Stop!” protocol is amazing! We have seen six patients and are very pleased to report that 5 of the 6 are smoke free after 60 days. The therapy blows you away because it’s only 3 patient visits and within a week, they report the cravings are gone, little or no withdrawal symptoms, heightened sense of smell and taste and no desire to smoke.” – Dr. Andrew Hall, D.C.
