Kick the Habit with Homeopathy

|

Did you know that today is the 35th Great American Smokeout? Sponsored each year by the American Cancer Society, this day is observed on the third Thursday of November to encourage smokers to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day.

According to the American Cancer Society, only about 4 to 7 percent of people are able to quit smoking on any given attempt without medicines or other help. For others, kicking the habit may require more than just willpower or sheer determination. Homeopathy offers safe and reliable medicines that can treat symptoms associated with smoking cessation efforts. Two of the most often used single homeopathic medicines are Lobelia inflata 6C to relieve tobacco cravings and Nux vomica 30C to relieve irritability and the need to eat.* These two single medicines can be combined without risk of interaction. They can also be purchased individually and are available at most health food stores and independent pharmacies.

For more information on how you can quit smoking, visit the ACS website for this helpful guide.
