Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2004
Entrepreneur Craig Nabat, a Detroit native known for inventing the infomercial product The FINDITKeyfinder has brought low-level laser therapy for treatment of nicotine addiction to the United States. Nabat's company, Freedom Laser Therapy is turning smokers into non-smokers using a 30-minute smoking cessation laser procedure. Nabat says, "From our follow up client phone calls we are learning a good percentage of Freedom clients are saying they have quit smoking." "Clients express to us how easy it is to end their smoking addiction and are referring other smokers to our clinic."
Nabat learned about low-level laser therapy after being treated in Canada for his addiction to nicotine. Amazed at the ease of kicking his cigarette smoking addiction, Nabat has dedicated himself to establishing Freedom Laser Therapy Clinics around the United States. The Freedom Laser Therapy's staff is dedicated to freeing the world from nicotine addiction.
In May 2003, an Institutional Review Board (IRB) authorized investigational clinical trials using low-level laser therapy in compliance with FDA regulations. Clinical trials are being set up to measure the safety and effectiveness of low-level laser therapy to treat nicotine addiction. The IRB is an organization chartered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to oversee clinical trials, which collect data on new medical treatments. Institutional Review Boards exist to ensure the rights of human study subjects protecting them by being in accordance with FDA guidelines; all treatment being offered must be safe, as well as ethical. The FDA has already ruled low-level laser therapy as a "non-significant risk" and the US investigational trials are being funded through patient participation. Freedom Laser Therapy is one of the nation's first full scale nicotine addiction based clinic participating in this research study to test the efficacy of smoking cessation treatment.
Low-level laser therapy works on a specific acupuncture points along the body's central nervous system. Laser therapy is perceived as a modern form of acupressure. A soft laser light is used to stimulate specific energy points in the ear, face, and hands relating to the addiction. When the laser makes contact with the body's various energy points, a person may experience a feeling of relaxation and a state of well being.
For the past 35 years, this specific application in treating addiction has been available in Europe and Canada. After decades of use in these other countries, the treatment has been shown to be helpful in treating smokers and other substance abusers.
Treatment with a laser assists by promoting the release of endorphins in the body. Endorphins are the body's natural chemicals, which help keep a person calm and relaxed, making it easier to cope with their addiction, withdrawal symptoms, and cravings that arise from giving up nicotine.
Laser therapy mimics a similar type of endorphin release in the body, which a person receives from smoking cigarettes. After the laser therapy treatment is administered, the client may lose almost all physical urges to smoke. This is the marriage of two great technologies, the ancient form of Chinese acupuncture and the modern form of the laser.
The 30-minute treatment includes education on nicotine addiction, advice on coping with cravings and withdrawals, nutritional recommendations, a vitamin detoxification regimen, and detailed instructions on how to maintain a nicotine free lifestyle.
Freedom Laser Therapy, Inc. is one of the first full scale quit smoking laser therapy clinics in the United States. Freedom Laser Therapy has plans to franchise their customized quit smoking program nationwide.
