Quit Smoking with Homeopathy – an effective, safe and inexpensive way
By Angelica Necula
Smoking is a dangerous addiction, because it can cause serious illnesses, even cancers, even death. When someone smokes every day, his/her blood gets addicted to carrying nicotine and carbon-dioxide from lungs to each and every cell, instead of oxygen and in the lung volume gets reduced and every cell in body is deprived from oxygen. Smoking may cause cancers of the esophagus, bladder, kidney, liver, stomach, pancreas, and several problems in pregnancy as well. Several severe heart conditions may also be developed.
Despite knowing that smoking is very dangerous for one’s health, many people are smoking every day. Homeopathy is a natural, safe, effective and inexpensive way of helping people quit smoking. Homeopathy also offers a natural way to cope with nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal
There are many smokers which attempt to quit smoking every year. Experts though believe that smoking is one of the hardest habits to get rid of.
What is making quitting so difficult is the extremely unpleasant withdrawal symptoms people will experience. Withdrawal is a set of physical symptoms that occur when the addictive substances are not used anymore.
Nicotine withdrawal symptoms will likely peak within a two to three-day period. The symptoms mentioned below will often disappear after two weeks, but some may experience nicotine withdrawal for several months. The following are symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal: coughing, intense nicotine cravings, tingling in feet and hands, insomnia, headaches, sweating, nausea and intestinal cramping, depression, weight gain, sore throat and coughing, difficulty focusing, irritability, anxiety, etc.
Quitting Smoking with Homeopathy
After a detailed case taking, the homeopath will find the remedy that is most suited to your physical and emotional symptoms. It is always best to consult a homeopath for correct dosage and protocol. For long-term after-effects, or to detoxify from tobacco, it is best to be under the care of a homeopath.
Most Used Homeopathic Remedies to help quit smoking
Among the most used homeopathic remedies to help quit smoking are: Tabacum, Nicotine, Plantago, Nux-Vomica, Avena Sativa mother tincture, Staphysagria, and more.
A well-trained registered homeopath will have to match all the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal (diarrhea, vertigo, constipation, palpitations, extreme nicotine craving, etc.) as well as those symptoms or sensations the person would experience as being part of their own constitution and present before starting the process of quitting smoking (coughing, heartburn, itchy skin, UTIs, to name a few).
A follow-up couple of weeks after taking the recommended homeopathic remedies is crucial, so that the Homeopath will adjust based on the given feedback, the potency of the homeopathic remedy, the frequency of taking the remedy. It is very possible that the need of another homeopathic remedy would be required at a later stage, or that the need of a complementary homeopathic remedy may be needed.
Everybody is different; therefore talk openly with your homeopath to create the best homeopathic protocol that fits you as a whole. Homeopathy treats the person, and not the disease or the health issue
There are other natural treatments (acupuncture, natural supplements, herbs) to help you quit smoking, but homeopathy is considered the safest and fastest natural one.
Quitting smoking may have been the best thing you have ever done for your health!
