A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Addictions
I had a question the other day about addictions.
The term “addiction” describes a compulsive act causing harm to a person over which you no longer have control.
The definition of addiction has historically been applied to substances, like alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs.
The addiction definition can also be applied to behaviors, like gambling, sex, exercise, and shopping.
Addiction is considered a mental illness and can be treated similarly to other mental illnesses through therapy, medication and lifestyle changes.
Did you know modern day cigarettes not only contain habit-forming nicotine, they also contain many toxins.
Things like pesticides and herbicides are used on tobacco crops, bleaches are used on cigarette paper, sugar and yeast are added, and many toxic chemicals are used in the manufacturing process.
It’s been said each puff of cigarette smoke contains over 4000 chemicals, including tar, nicotine, benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide.
If you smoke 1 pack a day, it’s about 73,000 puffs of chemicals accumulating in your system over a one year period.
At 20 cigarettes per day, 150 ml of tar can accumulate over one year’s time.
That’s equal to a regular coffee cup full.
Also, each cigarette burns or uses up vitamin C in your system.
So, the more you smoke, the more vitamin C your body needs.
Be aware tobacco can alter the absorption and effectiveness of many medications.
It’s time to do all you can to reduce and/or eliminate this dangerous habit.
Just think of all the money you’ll save once you’ve broken this habit!
You have a lot of detoxification to do.
Our program is designed to help those recovering from any addiction.
If you’re dealing with an addiction, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Burdock root and red clover help with cleansing toxins from your bloodstream.
*Siberian ginseng helps people recovering from cocaine withdrawal (don’t use if your have hypoglycemia, high blood pressure, or a heart disorder).
*Milk thistle helps to detoxify your liver.
*Pueraria, a Chinese herb, has been used for centuries as a cure for alcoholism.

*Eat a well-balanced, nutrient-dense diet emphasizing fresh, raw foods (organic whenever possible).
*Add high-protein drinks to your diet.
*Avoid heavily processed foods, all forms of sugar, and junk food. These foods are a quick source of energy, but are followed by a low feeling that may increase cravings for drugs.
*Consider consulting a qualified acupuncturist. Acupuncture has been known to help addicts by decreasing stress, anxiety, and the craving for drugs.
*There’s no single treatment that will help all addicted people. Treatment needs to be tailored to fit the different needs and problems facing the individual.
*Consider liver, gallbladder and/or colon cleanses.
*Rebalance intestinal microflora.
*Exercise; deep breathing; relaxation techniques, etc.
*Get professional support.
*Avoid stimulants: alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, soda pop.
*Understand any side effects of any medications.
*Discover and avoid events, places, people, situations, times you associate with or that trigger/encourage your habit.
