HOW TO HEAL SIDE EFFECTS of QUITING SMOKING

Updated on June 3, 2010

It is very mature decision to quit smoking, but body needs to adjust to the new situation. Some people pass through this adjustments very smoothly, some other refer many various health problems which occur after they stop smoking, to some of them problems persist for very long period of time:

  • problems with breathing
  • dizziness
  • lack of concentration
  • behavioural changes
  • cravings for food
  • hypoglycemia (dropping down sugar levels)
  • gaining weight
  • changes in blood pressure
  • slowing down metabolism
  • edema
  • and many others

Quiting smoking brings big change in overal body chemistry.

Did you know that quiting smoking affects dipping blood sugar level ? Due to that, you may experience constant craving for sweet food. Dizziness, concentration lapse and other behavioral changes partially occur because level of blood sugar drops down, which as a result produces lack of oxygen in the body .When sugar levels drop down, the other endocrine glands become affected as well, so body experiences overall hormonal imbalance.

The reason why blood sugar dropps down and so many other changes occur in the body is connected with chemistry of the tobacco herb which stimulates endocrine glands, brain and muscles.

Nicotine as stimulator

Tobacco herb does improve concentration and memory, and stimulates endocrine glands and muscles: nicotine attaches to acetylcholine receptors in our brain and stimulates them. Acethylcholine is very important neurotransmitter in our body which affects central and peripheral nervous system and:

  • activates muscles (by influencing membrane of the cells to open to the sodium ions which stimulate muscle contractions)
  • on that way, acetylcholine activates cells as well
  • stimulates neurons and brain to funcionate properly
  • stimulates endocrine glands (by stimulating nerves connected with them)

For the smokers, tobacco has the same effect on body as acethylcholine, so when body stays without this stimulator, very often suffers, because cannot produce enough of acetylcholine, which tobacco was replacing.

Be tender to your body

For some people, quitting smoking is not so harmless for overall health like it should be, especially if it is not performed gradually.

Sudden change of chemistry can have very negative effect on the body, some people never recover from this shock, if they additionaly do not heal themselves.

Human nervous and immune system cannot always stand sudden, big shocks, even if they are done for the best of health.

For the process of quitting, nicotine patches work fine for many people, so body can gradually adjust to the chemistry change.

Homeopathy and quitting smoking

Homeopathy has very effective methods which help people to quit smoking, there are several remedies which create aversion towards smoking and assure that you pass through this change very smoothly. Some remedies can replace to the certain point lack of nicotine in the body, and assure that brain functions stay the same by activating acetilcholyne receptors in the brain.

Please consider that you need personal consultation with homeopath. If you have chosen me, please contat me through my e-mail mhaelat999@yahoo.com Price for e-mail consultations is 50 US$

If you already quit smoking and experience mental and physical problems, there are remedies which replace good points of tobacco use ( by stimulating acethylcholin receptors), without causing any addiction to the body. On that way, all health disorders can be healed.

These remedies can be of great help in improving memory even when body of non-smoker experiences lack of acethylcholine, due to the diseases like:

  • Miastenia Gravis, or
  • Alzheimer Disease
  • Parkinson´s Disease

Very often people do not benefit of using one single homeopathic remedy, so I also personally prepare or recommend combinations of remedies.

If you are still not ready to quit

If you are still not ready to quit smoking, you can improve your health by regular use of vitamin C and Oxygen supplements. Smokers do experience lack of vitamin C which must be replaced. Oxygen supplements bring oxygen to the cells and clean it from toxins.

Breathing exercizes and outdoor activities will help you to cope better with negative effects of smoking and neutralize it to the certain point. Bioenergy and various remedies can help that body regularly cleans from toxins.

The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications

In the traditions of every culture, plants have been highly valued for their nourishing, healing, and transformative properties. The most powerful plants--those known to transport the human mind into other dimensions of consciousness--have traditionally been regarded as sacred. In The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants Christian Ratsch details the botany, history, distribution, cultivation, and preparation and dosage of more than 400 psychoactive plants. He discusses their ritual and medicinal usage, cultural artifacts made from these plants, and works of art that either represent or have been inspired by them.

      Thanks for the wise comment, Elisabeth.

      Love towards oneself is the highest form of love, we cannot love others if we do not love ourselves...

      Every addition to my Hub is more then welcome, as I said in the previous comment, I just wanted to inform people why is for some of them quiting - very painful and causes health imbalance.

      Great Hub Tatjana-Mihaela! Well thought out and well laid out, I agree with all that you recommend. I would add that a commitment to quit is required mentally. Once this realization that it is in your best interest to quit, then it is a demonstration that you have the capacity to Love yourself! No matter what others say, you must care for your own body, before you can take care of others. It is not selfish to Love you first, and in fact the benefits radiate out to everyone in your life!!

      I cannot agree more with you. Everyone has his/her own methods. Physical activities are of the highest value!!!

      The Hub is primarily dedicated to people who do experience health problems in this process or for months of years after quiting.

      They should know what is happening in their bodies.

      Many thanks for the visit and comment, and congratulations to your personal success.

      thanks for the tips they are great, but I think for differ people quitting works different. For example, I used to be a smoker and I have tried quitting in many different ways. But the best way for me is a cold turkey way. Nothing else is working. My advice to the people, if your quitting right now or having a hard time quitting, occupy yourself with physical activities and quit smoking will be so much easier.
