Butting Out for Good

By Gianni Vigna

In the past, you may have worked hard to quit smoking; perhaps some of your attempts to quit may have been somewhat successful. Our approach helps you build on these more successful attempts to quit and give the tools to make the journey more straightforward and a lot easier.

Strategies and techniques given to cigarette quitters should be well thought out and easy to use because the research suggests that nicotine withdrawl and cravings euals the difficulties experienced by cocaine of heroine quitters.

For many, cigarettes become so much a part of their life: after supper, during stress, work breaks, conversations starters etc., that attempts to quit must include strategies to replace a friend. Many strategies are available to help one quit. This article will focus on an alternative health approach known as homeopathic medicine. Homeopathic is the second most widely used medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in Canada and the US has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade.

Homeopathy is extremely effective when the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent.
Homeopathy is completely safe, even babies and pregnant women can use homeopathy without the danger of side effects. Remedies can be taken in conjunction with allopathic medicine without unwanted side effects.
Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines, which suppress the immune system.

Homeopathic remedies are not addictive. Once relief is felt, you should stop taking them. If no relief is felt, you are taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with homeopathy do not recur.

“Like cures like” is homeopathy’s foremost principle. This means if a given substance can produce symptoms in a healthy person, it can cute those symptoms in a sick person when administered in infinitesimal doses. For example, arsenic can produce violent abdominal cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, shortness of breath, burning pains, fears and paranoia. Yet a homeopathic dose of arsenic (asenicum album) is a very important remedy in curing many digestive, respiratory and psychological disorders.

Homeopathy is par excellence when dealing with symptoms one experiences when quitting nicotine. Remedies are prescribed to help curb the withdrawl or cigarettes and in turn remedies are prescribed to deal with the various craving indiviuals experience during an attempt to quit. Further, homeopathic remedies can be prescribed to deal with other symptoms that may arise. (For example, insomnia and low energy) Weight gain is sometimes a concern with quitters – using Homeopathy and sound nutritional advice will help individuals make the transition to a healthier lifestyle.

Homeopathy and solid counseling can be the perfect combination to helping you butt out for good. Research suggests that homeopathy can bring about 20% improvement on top of what conventional methods of quit smoking programs can promise.

All the best with your present efforts…. give homeopathy a try soon.
