You want to quit smoking, you know all the bad effects it can have, you keep making excuses that now is not the right time, you tried it once and found it too difficult. We are here to help you get rid of these thoughts and find the healthiest way to #LiveLifeWell and quit smoking.
Smoking can have some severe side effects. Some of these include:
- lung disease, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cervical cancer, pregnancy complications
- Females can experience early menopause, osteoporosis, cervical cancer, decreased fertility and pregnancy complications
- Males may experience low penile blood pressure which may contribute to impotence.
Quitting can be hard due to nicotine addiction. You can also experience other withdrawal symptoms such as nervousness, irritability, headache, tremors, and disrupted sleep.
How do you get past this? Proper supplementation and diet can help to control these symptoms, getting you back to normal in no time.
Here are some of our suggestions:
- Smokers cleanse kit – this is a three-part program that contains herbs, vitamins and amino acids aimed at respiratory system cleanse and support, reducing cravings and stress relieving.
- Total lung therapy – Helps to expel mucous from deep in the respiratory system, sooth and heal the inflamed tissues as well as protecting and strengthening the system.
- Antioxidants e.g. Coenzyme Q10, grape seed extract, N-Acetyl cysteine (NAC.) These protect the system against the oxidative stress and improve circulation and oxygenation of tissues. They also help to repair lungs and the other damaged cells.
- A potent multivitamin and mineral complex which provides important nutrients such as Vitamin C which is depleted by smoking and Vitamin B3 which helps to lessen the cravings.
- Peppermint, lavender and orange essential oils – they can help to fight the urge to smoke and can reduce headaches associated with nicotine withdrawal.
- Consume more fruits and vegetables to get all the beneficial nutrients you need such as vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
- Consume more cayenne and ginger- cayenne helps to desensitize respiratory tract cells to irritants from cigarette smoke.
- Consume more onions and garlic as they contain nutrients that help in detoxifying harmful substances from the body and can boost the immune system.
- Consume herbal teas that help in blood cleansing, relaxation and general well-being.
- Consume nuts and seeds that have nutrients with nerve-calming properties.
