Overcome Addictions With Herbal Remedies

September 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Herbal medicines can be part of a vital and successful strategy to combat addictions. They can be used to calm nerves, fight depression, detoxify, and help restore damaged organs and encourage healthy life choices.

Here are some examples:

* Milk Thistle – Especially helpful in the support of the liver, helping to cleanse toxins and encourages new cell growth.

* Lobelia – helps reduce craving for nicotine

* Oatstraw – Helps to rebalance the levels of endorphins.

* St. Johns Wort – For use as an anti-depressant.

* Valerian – Acts as a good sedative and helps relax the central nervous system and decrease levels of anxiety and stress

In case you do not know what herbs are, here is a definition: (Wikipedia): Herbs are plants that are valued for qualities such as medicinal properties, flavor, scent, or the like.

Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, or in some cases even spiritual usage. The green, leafy part of the plant is often used, but herbal medicine makes use of the roots, flowers, seeds, root bark, inner bark (cambium), berries and sometimes the pericarp or other portions.

Some types of herbal extract, such as the extract of Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), or the Piper methysticum (kava plant) can be used for medical purposes to relieve depression and stress. However, administering high amounts of these herbs may lead to poisoning, and should be used with caution.

There are natural solutions for whatever your addictions may be. Use prescription drugs as a last resort or only on a temporary basis when going through recovery.
