Using Homeopathy To Combat Withdrawal Symptoms


Homeopathy is a wonderful support for those withdrawing from drug or alcohol addiction. Not only does it relieve the immediate symptoms, it also works to heal the underlying cause, whether withdrawinherited, acquired, emotional or psychological.

Does that mean homeopathy is the only therapy that will help or that withdrawal becomes completely trouble-free? Not at all, but the process becomes so much easier with homeopathy.
Maura Henninger agrees. In her Huffington Post article on holistic treatments for withdrawal symptoms she says:

“Homeopathy is also incredibly effective for supporting patients in the early stages of recovery. By its nature non-toxic, homeopathy stimulates a person’s bodily systems to deal with stress and illness more efficiently. Research is currently being undertaken to understand how and why these remedies work on the mental and physical level. Specific homeopathic remedies may be helpful during the period of withdrawal from alcohol or drugs. Remedies are chosen on a highly-individualized basis. But there are a few main remedies that help the addict going through withdrawal, including Arsenicum album, Nux vomica and Lachesis.”

Arsenicum album and Nux vomica have long been used in my household for upset stomach, food poisoning, or any excess (such as overeating or drinking), and later transferring their use to helping my daughter detox. Now after reading about it, I come to find that Lachesis is an excellent remedy to help combat alcohol cravings. Although not a magic cure-all, homeopathy will peel off layers of pain, like peeling an onion, bringing relief in a subtle and deep manor.

Keep in mind that there are more than just three remedies that can be used. Maura’s article also provides other helpful advice in managing the symptoms of withdrawal.

Here is the link to her complete article, with other tips for detoxing such as green drinks and herbal support, along with insomnia remedies, since sleep is so important when detoxing.

More and more people are making the paradigm shift from standard AMA and Big Pharma protocols, to a safer and cheaper healing with holistic, non-toxic, natural vibrational healing such as homeopathy. This does not mean you must throw out all of your existing health practices. The beauty part about it is, there are no contrary indications when taking homeopathy and traditional medicine at the same time, along with no side effects and no chance for overdose. The worst case scenario is that the remedy just might not work!
