therapies Smoking Cessation

Quit smoking – not that difficult after all!

By our method „step by step“ you will manage to quit smoking in an easy way!

If  one stops smoking and gets smoke-free, often quite fast the positive changes in one´s own body become obvious. First of all efficiency and physical performance increase clearly. Relatively fast the side effects, as excessive sweating, odor, blemished skin, yellowish colored teeth and finger tips, as well as the well known bad smell disappear within a few weeks. The general well-being rises. Eating and drinking become a pleasure again as the taste buds function better. Also the olfactory sense will thank you for quitting. Doing without cigarettes will bring you a lot more advantages, also on the social level.

We would like to assist you in doing the crucial steps to get completely smoke-free.

Methods for weaning from smoking

  • Reduction method
  • Punch Line method
  • Substitution by vitamins
  • Autogenic Training
  • NLP
  • Acupuncture
  • Therapy with drugs
  • Glutathione-S-transferase, (GSTM1)


  • Behavioristic measures
  • Stress management
  • Self-esteem
  • Assertiveness
  • Group dynamics
  • Methods for relaxation
  • Sufficient exercise
  • Creating good mood

The important therapies for getting out of the habit of smoking, used by us, are presented below:


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese cure. By stimulating with needles on definite body parts, the so-called acupuncture points on the meridian lines, the blocked flow of energy gets activated and balanced again. On the short run acupuncture brings about high success rates of 80 – 90 %  shortly after the treatment.

Compensation by Vitamins (Orthomolecular Therapy)

First of all the central part of it is the high-quality supply of fruits, vegetables and dairy products. This is expediently expanded to supplements containing vitamins, which as radical scavengers (vitamins for body protection) are indispensable for the energetic metabolism. Furthermore minerals and micro-elements are administered which are involved in the bio-chemical interactions of the organism.

Suggestive Methods

Suggestion means influencing the consciousness. The most widely known suggestive therapy is hypnosis. The patient is shifted by suggestion into a different state of awareness. Thus he is especially receptive. Such a treatment needs to be received regularly, as otherwise there is the danger of relapse.

Reduction and Punch Line Method

Reduction in this case means reduction of damages. This method is applied with patients resistant to therapies and who suffer seriously from irreversible aftereffects of smoking. The target is not to achieve total abstinence, i.e. to be 100 % smoke-free, but reduced smoking. For backing up substitution for nicotine is employed.

In the Punch Line Method the ingestion of nicotine is immediately and completely stopped. This method has proved its value in most of the cases.


NLP is the acronym for Neuro Linguistic Programming and embraces methods, techniques and attitudes which we can apply actively for a better communication with ourselves and with others.

Glutathione-S-transferase (GSTM1)

This gene determines your ability to eliminate more or less efficiently the toxins and environmental pollutants from your body. We recommend that you have a one time check up on it, as in the end a deficient detox capacity will always cause considerable health disorders. More about it…


Quit Smoking

this is not accomplished with one single method, but by consciously joining many factors. Amongst others the success depends on the concerted selection of the therapies, on the consistent implementation and not at last on your cooperation. We do not leave you alone on this path, but we accompany you to a successful end.

Be tough and make the first step !

Scientific studies have proven that with each attempt the probability to become and stay a successful non-smoker rises.
