Shocking Video – Smokers Lungs Vs Healthy Lungs

While we do not want to discourage long term smokers from quitting, or to depress them about the realities of thier lungs this video must be shared.

It shows the stark difference between the lungs of a long term smoker and that of a healthy lung in regards to the capacity of the lungs.

If you feel short of breath you know why now …

So is this all bad news?

NO!

While you lungs may never get back to perfect health like the healthy ones in the video, much of that black gunk that is hardening your lungs can be removed over time as long as you do not smoke. The body works to remove this stuff, but it does take a long time to do if you are not taking significant actions to speed the process along.

A lung detox is the best way to really kick start this process and give you the best chance to turn those blackened lung back to a much healthier shade of pink!

More Evidence Smoking Destroys Your Lungs – Quit & Detox Now!

If all the warning you see and hear were not enough to make you consider quitting smoking, I found another extremely good image for the visual learners out there on what happens to your lungs after a long time smoking cigarettes. See below:

black unhealthy lungs

 

A perfectly healthy set of human lungs not abused by years of inhaling toxic cigarette smoke, tar and chemicals – and one that has. Black, bruised, falling apart, and whoever had that in their chest must have felt extremely poor for a LONG period of time as their lungs struggled to function under the strain of the sickness and pollution.

So no long post today – an image is worth a thousand words they say. Today’s image is 1000 words all saying QUIT SMOKING NOW!

A New Year, Lung Detox, And a New You

Opportunity For A Healthy Change, Or Same Old Same Old?

So here we are, a few weeks into 2013.  Has anything changed for you?  A new year is supposed to be brimming with new opportunities, isn’t it?  Have a quick look around.  See any?  If you do, congratulations, you are either very fortunate or are already working toward the sort of future you want.  But for the rest of us, we need to make some decisions and start working toward what we want.  And now we have the lucidity of being sober (compared to New Year’s Eve), and are over the holidays and back into our real lives, we should have the clarity of the everyday to make some lasting resolutions to create the sort of future we want.  Care to join me?

 

new-years-resolutions

But How Do I Make The Future That I Want – Right Now?

It’s very important when thinking about the sort of future you want, that you actually visualize yourself, being the way you want to be, in that future.  This will give you a goal to aspire to, and when you are in the ‘lows,’ threatening to give it all in (and let’s face it, we’ve all been there), you can remember back to your vision of yourself being the way you want to be, and hang onto that goal.  That’s where you want to be.  That’s WHAT you want to be.  No one is going to get you there but you, because it’s your goal, so you have to do it.  And keeping that in mind, push through and keep going.

But there will be times that you falter, step off the path, slip back a bit.  There are very few of us that achieve exactly what we want without going through a bit of 2 steps forward, 1 back.  The important thing is what you do at those times.  Do you give up, having ‘failed’ somehow?  Do you distract yourself, by shopping, or drinking, or some other ‘comfort’ activity?  Whatever you do when you have this sort of breakdown on the road to your goals, ask yourself ‘Is what I am doing now getting me any closer to my goal?’  If the answer is ‘no,’ then you need to change what you are doing!  Next time you ‘step back,’ catch yourself wandering off to distract yourself, forgive yourself your weakness, and get back in the horse.  It’s the only way to get to where you want to be.

That is because the only place you can make any changes in your life is now.  Right now.  Now is all we have.  But if you visualize yourself in the future being the way you want to be, that future will eventually become your now, and you will ‘live into’ what you have created for yourself. However, you can’t ignore the simple fact that nothing worth doing is inherently easy.  Notice I added ‘inherently’ to that old platitude?  That’s because the things worth doing become a LOT easier and more achievable with access to the right information.  Information is power; the power to reach your goals and be the person you want to be.

Getting The Right Information Is Crucial

If you’ve quit smoking recently or plan/want to start down that road in the near future, then you will maximize your results with the right information;  that is, to stay quit and detoxify your lungs as quickly and safely as possible.  I always feel so fortunate that Mark Freeman and I have been able to research and gather the right, crucial information on this topic and are able to share it with you, at a great price when you consider how much you’d spend, even over a week, on the dreaded cigarettes.

Our flagship product, The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide Series is all about giving you the knowledge you need, and the preparation tips to maximize your chances of success. We do this with a straightforward lung detox and the tools necessary to stay quit, or a quit program and lung detox.  It’s all included.  Now the Guides themselves give you a wealth of information that will help make your Lung Detox quick and highly successful (several months rather than up to 10 years), as well as a mass of Quit help, Stress Reduction tips, and Motivation methods that should hold you in good stead as you create that new future and work your way into it.

So sit down, make some plans, and start creating that future you want for you, right now.  I wish you all the very best of good fortune in the endeavor!

Happy New Year, stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.

Awesome Quit Smoking Video From Thailand

Its been a while since we last posted as we are working on some additions to the lung detoxification guide. We are also approaching the season where people often completely forget about quitting, or losing weight, or anything motivational because its Christmas time. We indulge in food and drink and parties, we see friends and families, and we wind down from work and the hustle of all this pushes us to forget about the dangers of smoking – or at least we think it is all too hard.

After New Year we will see a HUGE spike in people wanting to quit, but if you are now looking down the barrel of Christmas and thinking you can do it next year – well if you can do it now you will be much better off and will have a better Christmas as everyone will be in the Christmas spirit to give you a hand and encourage you i am certain!

To help you out, i had to show this amazingly awesome video from Thailand where they have spawned a viral sensation – take a look at how children can cause the most amazing reactions in smokers:

Pretty good right? Did you see some of them almost jump out of their skin as they realise what they just said as they continued smoking. So if you are thinking these things, imagine if a child came up to you asking for a light – how would you react? Would it help give you the motivation to quit?

What is a Lung Detox – Video

For those who hate long reams of text, or perhaps your eyes are just tired and need a break.

Here is a video we did to inform you about a lung detox and what it is!

Hope that explains it well!

Cheap Drug May Improve Your Chances Of Quitting Smoking Cigarettes

quitting smoking cigarettes with cheap drugsSometimes quitting smoking cigarettes and cleaning up your lungs can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride with a repeating patter than might look like:

  • Quit
  • Start to clean up
  • Fall back into the habit
  • Rinse and repeat …

Some have tried gums, patches, and more drug related alternatives such as Chantix and Zyban. But these sorts of quit smoking aids get expensive over time, and a lot of us these days don’t have that sort of money to throw around with a rising cost of living. For those of us who have a rough time sticking to a quit attempt and affording these quit assisting treatments, there may be a cheaper alternative on the way.

Cytosine – An Old Drug That’s Showing New Tricks

Smokers are three times more likely to stub out the habit if they take a course of pills that costs just $3.20 a week, according to a British study. Scientists at University College London said that using cytosine, a nicotine substitute naturally found in laburnum seeds, could become the first stop-smoking treatment that costs less than a packet of cigarettes without subsidies.

The study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, involved 740 patients who took cytosine or a placebo for four weeks. Participants on cytosine were 3.4 times more likely to succeed than those on the placebo.

For the approximately 1 billion (that’s a million million) smokers around the world, it could be the affordable assistance they need to finally break the habit. The next step will be US Food and Drug Administration approval, but once that is achieved, it could be a cost effective alternative to nicotine gums, patches and drug treatments such as Chantix and Zyban, presuming it’s released at a competitive price in the US and other countries.

World No Tobacco Day, 2011 (May 31)

It’s hard to believe that it has nearly been a whole year since we last blogged about World No Tobacco Day (WNTD).  So many things have happened since then, and yet it feels like just a few weeks ago, and I’m sure that your lives have been busy in the past year too.  But have you taken the plunge and begun a new, healthier way of life?  If not, May 31st might just be the perfect time to quit smoking cigarettes for good!

quit smoking on world no tobacco day

Ash trays with fresh flowers are a common symbol of World No Tobacco Day

When The Whole World Says No

One thing that can help you in taking on a major change in your life (such as quitting smoking and cleaning up your lungs), is knowing that you are not alone.  Knowing that there are thousands of people all over the world doing the same thing you are.  That is the beauty and the benefit of WNTD for the individual; that it can give you that final kick of motivation that gets you exchanging a destructive, dangerous habit for healthier, better ones.

World No Tobacco Day was created in 1987 by the World Health Organization (WHO), and 2011 is WNTD’s 23rd year (actual observance of WNTD began in 1988).  Each year has a theme that follows through press releases, to promotional flyers, pamphlets and other media materials.  In 2011, the theme is “The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).” Now you might just be saying ‘wha?’ to this.  This year’s theme is not a particularly personal one (as it has been in past years), but rather, an important WHO agreement that attempts to persuade governments and corporations to agree on reducing the production of tobacco, and tobacco products, and to replace tobacco farming with other, healthier crops.  To quote the WHO:

“The world needs the WHO FCTC as much as, if not more than, it did in 1996 when the World Health Assembly adopted a resolution calling for an international framework convention on tobacco control. Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death. This year, more than 5 million people will die from a tobacco-related heart attack, stroke, cancer, lung ailment or other disease. That does not include the more than 600,000 people – more than a quarter of them children – who will die from exposure to second-hand smoke. The annual death toll from the global epidemic of tobacco use could rise to 8 million by 2030. Having killed 100 million people during the 20th century, tobacco use could kill 1 billion during the 21st century.”

If you’d like to know more about this years WHO World No Tobacco Day theme, please follow this link.

World No Tobacco Day Can Be YOUR No Tobacco Day Too!

On a more personal level, WNTD is, at its core, a day where people that have a tobacco habit can forgo tobacco and tobacco related products for a whole day (Tuesday, 31st May), knowing that tens of thousands of others all round the world are doing the same thing.  It is in this sharing that you gain power and motivation to do something positive for yourself, just as the WHO is working for positive change in the world.  By observing World No Tobacco Day, you are being a part of that, and if you can do it for one day, perhaps you can go for longer… and make not smoking a part of a new, healthier life for yourself and for your lungs.

And don’t feel left out if you are a reformed smoker, now living healthy and free of nicotine!  This is your day to celebrate the effort you have gone to in making your life healthier. One way to really celebrate this is to start something designed to improve your health even further.  I can think of nothing better than building on a day of no tobacco by consider our flagship product, ‘The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide’ Series.  Whether you have already quit, or in the planning stage of saying goodbye to nicotine for good, our Lung Cleansing Guide has all the advice you need to turn one day free of nicotine into a lifetime of better health, and to speeding up the removal of tar and mucus that clogs up a recently reformed smoker’s lungs.  Trust me; you want this stuff out of your lungs, and your life.

So consider quitting smoking on World No Tobacco Day 2012, you could be feeling a whole lot better and having a cleaner set of lungs as well!

Until next time,

stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.

News From The Front Lines Of Quitting Smoking

quitting smoking geneday, there are news reports and journal articles about discoveries and developments in the fields of quitting smoking and lung detoxification.

Here are a just a few:

You Think Smoking Doesn’t Affect Your Life Expectancy – Think Again!

According to a paper in the latest edition of Journal of Tobacco Control, smoking is responsible for up to 60% of the longevity gap between men and women in most European countries.  That is, smoking is the main reason why men die sooner than women.  Recent World Health Organization figures on death rates were the source of the discovery.

In the UK, women live and average of four years longer than men – although, in recent years, the gap has been closing.  Second to smoking, alcohol accounts for 20% of the disparity.

So guys, quit now, clean yourself up, and have a better chance of living as long as your woman!

Science Finds Quit Gene

According to a very recent study, scientists have pinpointed a source of nicotine craving in the brain, opening up a new path toward drug treatments to kick the habit.  This is highly desirable, given that tobacco kills more than five MILLION people every year, and accounts for nearly one in EVERY 10 adult deaths, 90% of them involving lung cancer.

In experiments with mice and rats, researchers have mapped the functioning of a gene called CHRNA5, previously linked with nicotine addiction.  The gene controls a receptor – an entry point on the surface of brain cells – which responds to nicotine molecules.  With a normal version of this gene, anything more than a tiny dose of nicotine triggers a message to the brain which says in effect “stop consuming,” the scientists found.  Larger doses [of nicotine] unleash a sense of repulsion, similar to ‘bad tasting food or drink,” said Paul Kenny, lead researcher at the Scripps research Institute in Florida.  But the effect was quite different in mice in which a tiny sub-unit of the receptor, known as alpha5, had been knocked out.  The negative message was never sent, and as a result the rodents couldn’t get enough of the potent drug [being nicotine].

Researchers believe a similar scenario occurs natural in some humans, genome-wide screening studies have identified genetic alterations which impair alpha5 unit functioning.

So there you go.  Your genes effect how easily you get addicted to nicotine, and likewise make it harder for some to quit.

Nicotine Patch Prices To Be Slashed

It appears that the Government in Australia has decided that nicotine patches are effective enough to be added to that country’s Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.  Before this sensible move, the smallest pack of patches cost nearly three times what a pack of cigarettes cost.  With a doctor’s prescription, the price drops from between Au$100 – 140 down to Au$34.20, or $5.60 with a concession card.  Australian residents are eligible for up to 12 weeks supply of the quit smoking patches per year.  This is indeed good news.

If you don’t have the good fortune to live in Australia, our product, ‘The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide’ Series, has other, more cost effective ways to help you quit, stay quit, and detoxify your lungs as quickly as possible, saving you years of tar lung that increases your chances of cancer, emphysema and other related diseases.  Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

Until next time,

Happy New Year, stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.

Exercise In The New Year – Vital To A Successful Lung Detox

Shake A Tail Feather, And Feel Better

exercise for lung detoxI’ve spoken on the importance of exercise in a successful Lung Detox before, but it’s worth repeating myself at this time, being the New Year period, when we all at least consider either starting, or ramping up and exercise program to help burn the holiday calories before they preeminently lodge themselves around our middles. But besides being important for general health, exercise is doubly important for your Quit Attempt/Lung Detox.

Work The Body, Work The Mind

Your body and your mind are intrinsically linked, and as things that negatively affect one have the same sort of effects on the other (e.g. smoking), positive things, like exercising the body, can help the mind as well.  During a Quit Attempt and Lung Detox, regular exercise improves your overall circulation, blood pressure, immune competence, reduce feelings of stress, and mildly taxing exercise will prompt the brain to produce endorphins, the body’s natural ‘feel good’ hormones.  As an ex-smoker doing a Lung Detox, endorphins are your friends, as they can take the place of any ‘good feeling’ you got from your previous, and oh so destructive, habit.  And if you get your exercise by participating in a sport that you like, you an even have fun while exercising!

Exercise has so many benefits, it amazes me that so many people actually WANT to sit in front of the TV and avoid it.  Sure, if you overdo it you can get aches, but here’s a tip; if you have a good dose of protein after your exercise, and again the next day (such as a big glass of grass fed milk, or a protein bar/shake etc, or a good serve of meat), then you will reduce those aches considerably.  Exercise can help you feel better about yourself, help you lose weight (best if you exercise in the morning), and help you sleep better (if you exercise in the late afternoon/early evening).

Then there are exercises that are specifically designed to open up your chest, working your poor, battered lungs to improve their function.  Our product, ‘The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide’ Series gives you a heap of good tips, and exercises to do, both to improve your general health (which helps your body clean your lungs) and breathing exercises to help open your chest and improve your lung function.

Tomorrow Is The Day!

Tomorrow we release the updated Guides for 2011!  We’re really pleased with how they’ve turned out, and we think you’ll get so much out of them, you’ll never look back.  So check back tomorrow for the release blog post, where I’ll give you an outline of the updated product, which will see you happily smoke free in 2011!

Until tomorrow,

Happy New Year, stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.
