Zero Med is a small, non-invasive device for adults that will help you quit smoking. To use it, you won't need to ingest anything—all you'll need to do is clip it on your ear. Unlike other smoking cessation products, such as gums and patches, the Zero Med device contains no nicotine, and it doesn't contain any other harsh chemicals, either. It's registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration, and using it does not require a prescription from a doctor.
The cost of Zero Med is $39.99 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total price of $46.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at tryzeromed.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Zero Med and has taken down the website. Zero Med may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Zero Med operates based on the principles of auricular therapy, a type of treatment borrowed from traditional Chinese medicine, during which the ear is stimulated in order to correct various health problems. In this case, stimulation will help curb pesky nicotine cravings. The stimulating device contains small magnets that gently apply pressure, similar to ( but gentler than ) the pressure applied by acupuncture needles, to the ear. Each magnet is covered in 24-carat gold, thereby decreasing the chances that one will provoke an allergic response from the ear's tissues.
Wrap the device around the top of one of your ears ( it doesn't matter which one ). Ensure that one end of the device is touching the inside of the ear, and the other is touching the outside (each end contains a magnet).
Generally, you'll only need to wear your Zero Med device for 20 minutes at a time, but you should consult your instruction manual for more specific directions before continuing with the rest of your day.
Each Zero Med device has been made in the United States, so that means that certain health, safety and labour standards have been followed throughout the manufacturing process. The device has also been registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration, which indicates that the organization has found it to be safe for use.
Making use of this device is a natural way to quit smoking, since each device contains no nicotine or other chemicals that could be harmful to the body.
You don't need a doctor's prescription to obtain your own device, although there's no harm in consulting with a doctor before starting any new type of treatment program.
You won't need to poke yourself with any apparatus( es ) or take anything into your body orally in order to use Zero Med. If you're like the majority of users, 20 minutes of wearing the device won't even cause any irritation to either of your ears.
This device comes in a shade of royal blue, so unless you wear a certain hairstyle that covers your ears, others may notice the device if you wear it in front of them. Hence, wearing it could elicit some embarrassing questions at work or school.
A common method of quitting smoking is chewing pieces of gum that contain small amounts of nicotine, but having to keep chewing throughout the day can get annoying. Plus, users still expose themselves to nicotine's potentially harmful effects.
You can obtain a smoking-cessation patch from a pharmacy without a prescription, but like smoking-cessation gums, these expose the body to some nicotine.
E-cigarettes are compact, battery-operated vaporizers that you are able to use to mimic the actions of smoking, but while they likely aren't as harmful as smoking, most contain nicotine and other chemical material.
Some people successfully quit smoking by undergoing acupuncture treatments, but this can be painful, since it involves the skin being stimulated by small needles. Moreover, you'll need to visit a professional to receive this kind of treatment.
Do not use this product if you use any electro-medical device( s ), are pregnant, have a Latex allergy, or have thin or sensitive ear tissue. It is also unsafe for children to use.
