Nicotine withdrawal is one of the most difficult of all addictions to break. Until recently, many people were not aware that the tobacco companies might manipulate the amount of nicotine in each cigarette in order to increase the frequency and strength of a smoker’s addiction.
Treatment Plan for Nicotine withdrawal
Although it is difficult to eliminate a nicotine addiction unless one is truly ready, an herbal program with anti-addictive herbs can be helpful.
*Antiaddictive herbs (wild oats, calamus)
*Adaptogens/adrenal tonics (eleuthero, rehmannia, schisandra, gotu kola)
*Liver cleansers (Oregon grape root, chaparral, burdock, gentian)
*Blood purifiers (red clover, echinacea, burdock, sarsaparilla)
*The lobeline-containing herb, lobelia, which has a similar but less toxic effect on the nervous system than nicotine.
