The Omega Smoking Cessation Program
The Program consists of *Counselling, *Laser Treatment, *Vitamin therapy and Back up Support. Combine this procedure with a true “Desire to Stop” and you’re on the road to success and getting rid of smoking. It’s not unusual for people to change their lifestyles after they see improvements in their general health & fitness very early on. In fact, your body can improve from the moment you stop smoking.
How Does The Program Work?
Medical reports have shown that smokers have a higher level of “endorphins.” These are the body’s natural calming and stimulating chemicals which are triggered by the intake of cigarette smoke. These are the least harmful effects from smoking. It’s the many other toxic, caustic, carcinogins and chemicals a smoker intakes that are particularly deadly. When you stop smoking, the sudden drop in endorphins is the main reason for the craving effect.
L.L.L.T. (Low Level Laser Therapy) used on acupuncture points, helps to stimulate and maintain the body’s natural mechanism to balance the endorphin levels. It is completely safe, painless and even relaxing, using Laser pure light energy. Laser light is providing a success in many other forms of therapy as well as addictions, e.g. Physiotherapy, Sports injuries, “Problem” tissue healing, as well as a brilliant tool in Acupuncture.
Some Facts About Smoking
For many people it is love at first puff. Cigarettes contain 4,000+ deadly toxins including nicotine. A nicotine “high” reaches the brain within seven seconds. Nicotine, when first ingested, causes a person to feel awake and alert, shortly after that person feels calm and relaxed. This is due to an elevation in endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain reduction and pleasure chemicals that are produced in the brain. After time, more and more nicotine is needed to achieve the same pleasurable feeling, leaving the smoker addicted.
The usage of this narcotic creates a roller coaster effect in your system that is very hard to break free from. Once you are a habitual smoker, your mind and body develop a physical dependence for nicotine. Smoking excites your body’s pleasure chemicals, endorphins, and puts them into high gear. This makes you feel very good – until your body summons you to replenish the depletion of nicotine in your system. So you smoke again, and again, and again. It is a vicious cycle that never stops until you quit smoking for good.
Laser therapy treatment works to stimulate the release of endorphins in a healthy way mimicking similar endorphin rush caused by nicotine. The laser helps to balance the body without harmful effects.
Stimulation of acupuncture points on the ear for addictions is a useful tool in relieving the symptoms of withdrawal, including decreasing the severity of cravings, body aches, headaches, nausea, sweating and muscle cramping. People also report that they sleep better, feel less depressed and more relaxed. Based on 3000 years of Chinese medicine, ear acupuncture is being used in over 1000 addiction treatment centres in North America. Lifestyle Behaviours that respond well to Low Level Laser Therapy include the abuse of alcohol. Withdrawal from alcohol can be difficult, but with the advancement of Low Level Laser technology withdrawal and cravings can be minimal or non-existent. If you have never experienced a real addiction, then it may be hard to understand. You may be tempted to criticize, lecture or moralize. We all know that approach doesn’t work. The addiction centers in the mind and it is the only disease that tries to convince people that they don’t have it. Psychologists call this the state of denial.
Healthy Coping Mechanisms
Many people are stuck in a cycle of addiction because their unhealthy lifestyle behaviour is a substitute for healthy coping mechanisms. This means their emotional growth was stunted at some point and it stays that way until they recover. Using alcohol feels like a quick escape solution but always results in serious long-term health and relationship problems. Far from seeking substance abuse treatment, many addicts and alcoholics persist in self-destruction despite knowing the extreme consequences. You want to quit but you feel trapped. It has nothing to do with will power. Your brain is physically addicted to “feeling good” and demands the substance. How long will it take to overcome your addiction? Every person and situation is different. But if you are ready to begin, Omega Laser is a positive step towards freedom.

Laser Acupuncture for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Previous research has shown that acupuncture can help ease anxiety by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry. While the components are much more complex, acupuncturists believe that by balancing Qi energy correctly throughout the body and responding to diagnoses using these acupuncture points has the potential to provide a safe and effective cure.
The Value of Laser Acupuncture for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Laser acupuncture represents a very valuable anxiety treatment by providing three separate benefits that are important to those living with anxiety:
Reinforcement is also a serious problem for those with anxiety, especially panic attacks. With panic attacks, a person’s fear of getting a panic attack can actually cause a panic attack, which in turn confirms the fear and makes it more likely to happen again in the future. Acupuncture, if effective, will reduce these thought processes completely, which in turn should reduce the potential for your anxieties to reinforce themselves.
Finally, while anxiety is a standalone condition, it doesn’t create itself. Often you have other issues in your life that can cause you some anxiety or contribute to the severity of your anxiety symptoms. Omega Laser should help with those as well. For example, you may find that you become more anxious or on edge after you feel like your heartbeat has increased. Laser Acupuncture could then help.
