Worship: All About Trials / Wellness: Stop Smoking Remedy


Stop smoking remedy

  • 3/4 cup, honey
  • 1/4 cup, fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 teaspoon, pure peppermint oil
  • “just a pinch,” cayenne pepper
  • 1 oz bottle, lobelia extract

Stir and store in an airtight jar. This makes about 1 cup of the solution. It needs no refrigeration. Make the solution as often as needed.

When you get a craving, that indicates that the blood sugar is low. The honey will raise the blood sugar. Lemon juice cleanses out the nicotine toxins that trigger physical cravings. It also is a tonic for the body. Peppermint oil calms the nerves. The cayenne makes everything work more efficiently. Lobelia is close to the tobacco in its properties, so that it provides a calming effect.

Take the teaspoon of the solution when you get the craving and keep moving through your day. Drink plenty of water. At the very least, drink half of your body weight in ounces. Divide your weight by 2 and convert the pounds to ounces. That is your body’s minimum daily water requirement.

Also drink vegetable juices, and eat largely of sprouts. The more nutrition your body receives, the fewer cravings you will experience.

Contrast showers will help pull out toxins through the skin. Do 3 minutes of very hot water, immediately followed by 30 seconds of very cold water. Repeat this for at least three to seven rotations. When time is limited, do 1 minute hot, followed by 10 seconds of cold water. This also would be done for at least three rotations. Using a long-handle skin brush during the hot cycle will increase the benefit of the contrast shower treatment. Then wrap the body in a cold, wet sheet. Lie down on a plastic-covered bed and sleep, covered with blankets the entire time. Repeat this daily or nightly until the dampened sheet shows no discoloration of nicotine stains.

Avoid foods that will increase the craving for tobacco or nicotine, such as refined or white sugar products; the flesh of animals; animal byproducts, like dairy and eggs; and products containing caffeine, like coffee, tea and chocolate.

Also, be mindful of what you watch. Television programming that stimulates the brain’s urge to smoke and music that triggers cravings should also be avoided.
