Smoking Cessation Therapy by BioVeda


Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do; however, it is one of the most beneficial steps you can take to improve your health. The Just Stop! Smoking cessation program is exclusive to BioVeda and integrated in the Health & Wellness Clinic. The “Just Stop!” program utilizes low level light therapy, herbal supplementation and homeopathic remedies to help reduce stress, cravings and irritability. Our program goes a step further by removing harmful toxins known to build in the blood, tissue and cells through habitual use of tobacco products.

We begin by stimulating specific acupuncture points on the body that are associated with cravings. The use of light triggers an endorphin and serotonin release that effectively and naturally calms the body. This reduces stress and the irritability many patients experience during the first 72 hours of being smoke-free. The herbal supplement and homeopathic remedies continue to help diminish and manage stress and cravings, while also pushing the toxins that trigger the cravings out of the body.

When the treatment is administered, a series of events occurs:

  1. Within 20 minutes after you smoke that last cigarette, your body begins a series of changes that continue for years.
  2. Twelve hours after quitting, the carbon monoxide in your blood drops to normal levels.
  3. After 24 hours, your lungs begin to clear out accumulated mucous and tar. Your pulse rate and blood pressure begin to decrease.
  4. After 48 hours, your sense of smell and taste begin to improve as the nicotine is eliminated from your body.
  5. After 72 hours, your bronchial tubes begin to relax, making breathing easier and lung capacity increases.
  6. After 2 to 12 weeks, circulation improves, making walking and physical activity easier.
  7. After 2 weeks to 3 months, your heart attack risk begins to drop and your lung function begins improving.
  8. One to 9 months after quitting, coughing and sinus congestion decreases. Lung function improves and shortness of breath decreases. Energy level increases 1 year after quitting, and your added risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker’s risk.
  9. Ten years after quitting, your lung cancer death rate is about half that of a smoker’s. Your risks of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decreases.
  10. Fifteen years after quitting, your risk of coronary heart disease and lung cancer returns to that of a non-smoker.
