Drug Detox Naturally

June 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Dr. Elson M. Haas, author of The New Detox Diet, lists some of his top steps for drug detox as follows:

  • If you are a heavy drug user, use the assistance of a health care practitioner or a clinic to support your detox. Going “cold turkey” from sedatives, stimulants, and narcotics can have very serious consequences, including seizures.
  • Drink plenty of water and eat an alkalizing diet.
  • Reduce stress and enhance your coping skills.
  • Use supplemental nutrients to support your body during detox. Include regular vitamin C, B vitamins, and most minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium for their calming effects.
  • Try herbal therapies to ease the detox process – white willow bark for pains, valerian root and others for anxiety and insomnia.
  • Consider acupuncture to ease the body through its transition.

In addition to detox from drug addiction, additional information is also available in his book about alternative health solutions for detoxing for sugar, nicotine, caffeine and alcohol.
