The smoking cessation program at National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA) is a medically supervised program which uses drug-free and effective, natural options to help smokers quit. The link between nicotine addiction and cancer, heart disease and other medical disorders is irrefutable, yet there are few safe, drug-free options to help tobacco users quit.
Addiction is a complicated problem which may involve physical, mental, biochemical, behavioral and even spiritual factors. Many find it difficult to stop smoking because all of these issues are not addressed simultaneously by treatment providers. NIHA’s comprehensive, integrative approach to quit smoking is multi-factorial and addresses these components of addiction in a truly holistic, mind/body/spirit manner. The NIHA smoking cessation program combines motivational and mindfulness counseling, low intensity laser therapy of acupuncture points (no needles), education and nutritional support.
The Smoking Cessation Program includes:
The patient is educated to understand the medical, biochemical and psychological problems from long term nicotine use. Dr. C.E. Gant M.D.,Ph.D, who supervises the program, has worked in the field of addiction for over 35 years and is the author of "End Your Addiction Now" and "End Nicotine Addiction Now." Ana Vargas, M.D. (Mex.), M.S., will administer the laser treatments and provide professional counseling services. She obtained skills certification from the Center for Tobacco Research and Training of the University of Massachusetts, Medical School.
Stopping smoking leads to major health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure and mood, heart rate, sleep patterns, cancer and heart disease prevention, improved carbon monoxide levels and exercise endurance. The NIHA multi-faceted, integrated, smoking cessation program may help nicotine users quit for good.
