6 Natural Remedies to Help You Stop Smoking Cigarettes

stop-smoking-cigarettes

While smoking tobacco has been viewed differently over the years, it has been understood for some time that it can cause major health problems such as heart disease, lung cancer, and even erectile dysfunction. According to the American Heart Association, roughly 25 million men and over 21 million women in America smoke cigarettes, and nearly 1 in every 5 deaths is cigarette related.

 

Nicotine, which is the naturally occurring, addictive ingredient in the tobacco plant, is the thing that keeps smokers addicted. When a person inhales tobacco smoke, it directly enters the lungs and nicotine gets released into the bloodstream, which makes it travel to the brain in seconds. Nicotine increases the release of dopamine, which is a chemical that improves your mood and feelings of pleasure. Smoking tobacco can then make you feel good, which is why people become addicted. Since smoking cigarettes negatively affects your health, here are 6 natural remedies to help you quit.

 

#1: Exercise

Exercise can help relieve the body of stress and help take the mind off smoking tobacco. When you’re exercising, your focus is not on smoking, rather, you concentrate on the way you feel. Exercise helps to boost the body’s production of endorphins, which improve one’s mood and decrease the desire and need for tobacco.

 

#2: Acupuncture

Acupuncture also helps release endorphins by using certain pressure points. It may help to relieve anxiety and increase overall wellness. Placing the needles in certain points actually neutralize stress hormones, which the body releases into the bloodstream when stressed.

 

#3: Do a Cleanse

Taking a biochemical approach to repair the body is a great natural remedy that can aid one’s path to quitting tobacco use. First one must detox, repair the damage, and then care for the body. Remove tobacco or mind altering substances, caffeine, or sugar from your diet. Stick to plant-based foods that provide the nutrients you need for recovery because a poor diet can lead to tobacco cravings. Additionally, refrain from hanging around people who smoke tobacco.

 

#4: Drink More Water

Nicotine is addictive and hard to quit because it lives in your body as a toxin. It can be hard to flush out of your system, but drinking lots of water can help rid your body of nicotine because water is a natural detoxifier. Drinking the recommended 8-10 glasses of water every day can help detoxify your body. You can also drink half your body weight in ounces of water to be properly hydrated. If you weight 150lbs and divide that by 2 to get 75, you should be drinking 75oz of water every day.

 

#5: Eat More Ginger & Ginseng

Ginger and ginseng can help you on your path to quitting tobacco use. Both of these herbs help soothe the digestive system, and combating nausea, which commonly occurs during withdrawal, may help you overcome the urge to smoke.

 

#6: Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way

There has to be a will to stop smoking cigarettes. The individual needs to commit to stop smoking and use the herbal remedies in this list to avoid continued tobacco use.

    Q: I have been a heavy smoker for eight years and I recently felt the cigarettes start taking a toll on me. Three weeks ago I started having this irritating throat ache, so I starting skipping a few cigarettes. The more smokes I skipped the more I felt my throat getting better. Shortly after I started back smoking heavily again I experienced bronchitis/pneumonia symptoms. Such as Fevers, Soar and swollen throat, congestion, wet coughs, loss of appetite, and a few other symptoms. I immediately stopped smoking. It’s been 6 days now and my symptoms have decreased, but I am getting these nasty night sweats. I am waking up at least 4 or five times a night drenched in sweat. I feel it could be a number of things causing the night sweats such as nicotine withdrawals, my body's immune system going to work and sweating out toxins, and a number of other reasons. I would like to hear your expert opinion on why you think I am experiencing these sweat episodes, that sometimes happened in the day too. Also I took one capsule of Super Milk Thistle 3 days ago.

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I'm on the Weight Release kit. I'm drinking the water and making sure that I drink a glass full each time I take one of the product. But at present I'm very bloated and not having a bowel movement. Could you please tell me what I need to do? This is not a good feeling.

    A:

    Drink some herbal laxative tea (i.e. senna, cascara sagrada, Smooth Move, etc.) and a cup of prune juice 1-3 times daily. You may also try performing an enema. What you're feeling is natural. The bloating will soon give way to numerous bulky bowel movements.

    Q: I just sent you an email yesterday regarding my husband, but I am sending this one because I have read through a lot of your articles and one thing that I didn't see was your outlook about smoking weed. How do you feel about smoking weed? I mean isn't it suppose to be an herb and if it is smoked through a bong as oppose to blunt paper isn't weed healthy? Please forgive my ignorance.

    A:

    Please read our article THE BLUNT FACTS OF MARIJUANA. The substance is banned by your government so why take the risk? Why not just meditate or work with crystals or yoga? No herb should be smoked. You're putting fire to it, which changes the molecular structure of the thing being burned.
