Zerosmoke, a method to quit smoking that has enjoyed wide success in helping smokers quit the habit in Europe, is a Class I medical device and is registered and listed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will now be available in the United States and Canada.
The Zerosmoke method of quitting smoking is based upon the precepts of auricular therapy, or the stimulation of acupressure points in the ear. The product features two small magnets that are placed opposite each other on a determined point of the left ear. This magnetic acupressure therapy eliminates a person's desire to smoke. The magnets are comprised of 24K gold, in order to abolish allergic reactions. The treatment involves using Zerosmoke for three to four hours daily for six days, while continuing to smoke as normal. On the seventh day, users quit smoking without the cravings, while wearing the magnets for an additional 20-25 days to complete the cycle.
