Quitting Smoking? Body Cleansing Advice for Afterwards
Your body is relieved to be rid of the deadly chemicals contained in cigarettes. To show how happy it is, within 24 hours of quitting smoking your heart rate is reduced, blood toxicity level (carbon monoxide gas) is back to normal, and you are breathing freer with an improving lung capacity. Amazingly, the body is very forgiving to smokers, it naturally responds to rectify damage to tissues, with every effort employed to get it back to a fully functioning state. This is the initial obstacle cleared, well done, but there is more to do. While nicotine-the primary addictive ingredient in cigarettes-is mostly cleared from the body, the other 4,000 added carcinogens are not. Cleansing your body of these toxic substances becomes even more significant, particularly when you realise you have been ingesting dangerous chemicals such as arsenic, cyanide, tar, and DDT, just to name a few. Added to the aftermath of smoking, are the inevitable withdrawal symptoms commonly experienced when nicotine is removed from the blood. The symptoms normally include, mood swings, constipation, coughing, dizziness, and headaches. Anticipate these withdrawal symptoms and have a plan ready to help you lessen the unpleasant phase. This is a vulnerable time when many smokers return to the habit when will-power wanes. To support your body in its natural healing process, here are 6 tips you can use: Tip #1: Water Treatment (hydrotherapy)
Hydrotherapy is often used in alternative medicine. It simply uses water as a therapeutic agent to bathe and cleanse the cells. For this therapy, the premise is that if you drink water sufficiently you can not only cleanse, but also prevent and even cure some diseases. The guideline for water treatment is easy. Every day for the first week you would need to drink 1.5 litres of pure water. The difficult part is to consume it all at once-after drinking you should not have any food-- for 1 hour. Drinking this amount of water may seem daunting but can be gradually introduced into the body. Try drinking parts of the amount needed with only a 2 minute break in between drinks. Tip #2: Remove all Stimulants
The first week will be the hardest to resist smoking. What helps with the cravings is removing other stimulants from your diet that weakens your resolve to remain smoke-free. For example, coffee will incur the need for a cigarette, it often does, and if this combination is also a habit for you then all caffeinated beverages should be removed from your diet; so too should condiments, spicy foods, red meat, and highly processed foods (white products). Tip#3: Drink Lime/Lemon Water
Another excellent craving inhibitor is lemon or lime water which is an effective blood cleanser. Both citrus fruits are high in anti-oxidants, capable of destroying germs and eliminating free radicals from the body. Lemon or lime water will do the job of expelling built up toxins afters years of smoking and get the digestive tract, liver and kidneys in optimum working order. Also scientific evidence suggests that lime/lemon water has a drying effect on the palate reducing saliva while curbing the taste for smoking. Tip #4 Herbal Teas
Herbal teas are filled with a wide variety of medicinal properties that purifies, heals, and calms the body. Several teas contain antiseptics, antipyretics (fever reducer), anti-inflammatory and decongestant. No one tea contains all the active ingredients needed for a full therapeutic effect. Consider including a wide variety of teas into your day and weeks to come. Choose from among:
• Burdock root
• Ginger root
• Elder berries
• Catnip leaves
• Alfalfa leaves Tip #5: Juicing and Blending
Juicing or blending fruits is a great way to introduce concentrated blends of natural vitamin C and E, as well as other essential phyto-nutrients to cleanse the body. Consume a variety of fruits and vegetables into the diet to fight free radicals, and replenishes nutrient stores depleted from smoking. Drink grapefruit juice with added water, pineapple juice, cranberry or carrot juice a few minutes before a meal. Tip #5: Eat High Fibre Foods
Cleanse your bowel with high fibre foods such as root and cruciferous vegetables, nuts, beans and grains. Because toxins tend to accumulate in the lower bowels and extremities, regular elimination will enhance the removal of poisons from the body. Tip#6: A Healthy Lifestyle
Take a multi-vitamin and mineral; get plenty of fresh air, rest and incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Adopting a new healthy lifestyle will involve maintaining a high percentage of wholesome foods most of the time in the diet. Ultimately, time will be your best friend as your body attempts to heal itself. So while there is no precise regime that will immediately detox your body the power of healthy foods to nourish, protect, and regenerate cells is the next best alternative to time waiting.
