Struggling to Break Free from Smoking? We’ve Got Your Back!

Have you found yourself caught in the cycle of attempting to quit smoking, only to find it incredibly challenging each time? If you’re nodding in agreement, you’re not alone. Quitting smoking can be a huge struggle, and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. For most individuals, it takes multiple attempts before successfully kicking the habit for good.

The decision to quit smoking must stem from your genuine desire to do so, driven by your internal commitment rather than external pressures from friends or family. Mental and emotional readiness plays an important role in this journey.

If you’re currently grappling with the struggle to quit smoking, perhaps it’s time to explore Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). Here’s why LLLT might be the game-changer you’ve been searching for:

1. Safe, Easy, and Affordable: Laser therapy provides a safe and non-invasive alternative to traditional methods. Unlike acupuncture, it doesn’t involve needles, making it a comfortable experience, not to mention, a cost-effective option.

2. Proven Effectiveness: A couple of recent trials in Scotland have shown that LLLT is ten times more effective than popular alternatives such as patches, gum, or hypnotherapy. The success lies in its ability to address the three primary symptoms associated with withdrawal:

  • Blocking the need for nicotine
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Suppressing your appetite

3. Empowering Self-Success: At Calgary Laserworks, our focus is on empowering individuals to take control of their journey towards a nicotine-free life. We understand that true success comes from within, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

If you’re ready to break free from the chains of nicotine addiction, why not give us a call today? For more information call us at 403-301-3750. Your healthier, smoke-free future awaits!

You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.”

All it takes is one extended bout on the sidelines of life and you understand the truth in that expression. Studies have shown that any number of things can have a detrimental effect on your health.

Smoking is a HUGE factor in the state of your health. It has been proven to cause lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown, to name just a few.

Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart-related issues. Studies show that being thankful and happy can reduce stress. Research also shows that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic, something you can’t effect very much, 10% is based on surroundings (job, money and family), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through behaviour.

So how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?

We can help you take deliberate actions! We’ll help you stop smoking, reduce stress and anxiety, and help you relax, all which can improve your immune system and much, much more.

Call 403-301-3730.  You’ll be so grateful and proud of yourself for taking the steps to improve your health and well-being!

What is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease?

According to the Canadian Lung Association COPD is short for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. COPD is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory (non-reversible) asthma. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.

While COPD is a disease commonly caused by smoking, and there is currently no cure, you can slow the progression of COPD and improve your lung function by quitting smoking.

Click here, What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?, to view a slideshow with a good overview about COPD and ways it can be treated.

The best way to prevent COPD is to never smoke, but of course many people do. If you’re ready to end your addiction to nicotine, contact Calgary Laserworks at 403-301-3730. We are truly here to help you succeed.

Dangers of Secondhand Smoke

“Secondhand smoke is a mixture of two forms of smoke that come from burning tobacco: side-stream smoke (the smoke from the lighted end of a cigarette) and mainstream smoke (the smoke inhaled and exhaled by a smoker). Side-stream smoke is more toxic than mainstream smoke, as it has much higher concentrations of cancer-causing substances. There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.” — Tobacco Stops with Me.com

Exposure to secondhand smoke continues to be a serious health problem. In fact, non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke absorb the same harmful chemicals as smokers. Studies show that even low levels of secondhand smoke exposure can be harmful causing numerous health problems including increasing your risk for lung disease, heart disease, heart attacks and strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and many life-threatening cancers.

Secondhand smoke effects everyone and everything around you — children, pregnant women, people with breathing issues, your family, your friends, your co-workers. If you’re a smoker, isn’t it time to let it go? It’s truly never too late.

Calgary Laserworks is here to help you succeed…FREEDOM…at last! Get in touch today at 403-301-3730.
