Around 45 million people smoke, and around half a million people die every year from smoking. Quitting smoking is important to good health, but it is one of the hardest habits to quit. Modern advertising might make smokers think that they have to choose between quitting cold turkey and taking dangerous prescription drugs to assist them, but alternative medicine offers a healthier option.
There are numerous drugs dedicated to quitting smoking, but all have side effects that can be disastrous. These side effects include deadly allergic reactions, depression, suicidal thoughts, headaches, fever, and other physical effects. Many people continue smoking because they are not willing to deal with these side effects, which can be dangerous and even life-threatening. However, remedies taken from homeopathy offer the same benefits without the disastrous side effects. In many cases, they are the best solution.
There are several natural remedies that have been shown through centuries of use to help people quit smoking. These include tabaccum, which is an extract of the tobacco plant that does not contain the carcinogenic chemicals of cigarettes and chewing tobacco yet has the chemical properties needed to relieve withdrawal symptoms.
In addition, natural preparations of botanical compounds can help to alleviate the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and help people find a new, tobacco-free life.
How can homeopathy help? Preparations of ignatia, nux vomica, abies nigra, aconite, and veratrum album can help to relieve the physical symptoms of nicotine and tobacco withdrawal, such as nervousness, jitters, increased appetite, and insomnia.
Avena and plantago, extracts of the oatmeal and plantain plants, are cleansing extracts that can help to rid the human body of toxins such as nicotine more quickly. These botanical products relieve the craving for cigarettes and the signature cough to subside in a timelier manner. St. John’s wort and other homeopathic remedies for depression and anxiety can help people work through the problems that led them to start smoking in the first place. All of these remedies can ease the transition from smoking to non-smoking.
Many people are quick to write off homeopathic remedies and alternative medicine, but these have been found in numerous scientific studies to help with smoking cessation where modern medicine and pharmaceuticals have failed. For instance, a recent study found that St. John’s wort increased the rate of smoking cessation by more than 35%. That means that more than one-third of the good people quitting smoking were successful because of a homeopathic remedy that has been discounted by modern medicine. It is easy to see how tabaccum, the extract of the tobacco plant, can help with cravings.
Other remedies, such as Ignatia, Nux Vomica, Abies Nigra, Aconite, and Veratrum Album have been found colloquially to help people deal with the overwhelming nature of tobacco withdrawal. In addition, there are studies finding that Avena helps with the long process of detoxification. Plantago is a delicious part of Caribbean cuisine that gives similar benefits.
The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that there are natural remedies to the very modern problem of addiction.
The pharmaceutical industry is invested in keeping people sick; after all, that is how they make money! However, the best homeopathic remedies have been proven by generations of successful use rather than biased studies run by profiteers. This evidence is enough to suggest that safe and botanical remedies are the answer. When people decide to quit smoking, they need a time-proven remedy on their side that will help them with the physical and psychological side effects of tobacco cessation. No one should continue smoking for fear of craving and other physical symptoms. Natural products can be the remedy.
