A Natural Way To Quit Smoking

 Lobelia and St. John's Wort can interact with each other and also the rest of the remedies here. 
Do NOT use them at the same time ! - Huan the Pharmacist
  1. Cayenne Pepper: Desensitizes the respiratory system to tobacco and chemical irritants helps stop cravings for cigarettes. Take the spice daily: add a couple of pinches to a glass of water.
  2. Ginger: Ingesting pure ginger helps you quit smoking. Ginger has a warming and heating effect in the body, which promotes perspiration. When your body sweats it excretes toxins and relieves some chemical loads from the body. A great detox for a smoking addiction. Also - Drink ginger tea. Instead of smoking try preparing a cup of ginger tea. This is effective because it helps form a new habit instead of smoking. 
  3. Ginseng: Prevents nicotine-induced releases of the neurotransmitter dopamine found in cigarettes. Take a teaspoon of ginseng powder in some cereal or maybe a health shake. (prevents cravings)
  4. St. John's Wort: Recommended 450 mg capsule 2 times a day
  5. Peppermint: nausea can be alleviated with peppermint tea or peppermint oil. It's great for relieving nausea but is also helps relaxation. It has an anesthetic and pain-relieving effect on the body - that's perfect for combating this dirty habit.
  6. Lobelia: Active ingredient is lobeline, thought to have similar properties as nicotine. Research has shown that lobeline may increase levels of dopamine in the brain similar to cigarettes.

The truth is - you will feed yourself whatever lies you need to hear to keep doing what you want to do. The choice needs to be made deep inside of you. Once you have made this choice then and only then can you start to lose weight naturally and keep it off. It works the same as an addiction. You can not be helped unless you are committed to doing this and going the full distance.

Can it be? He did eat the right stuff!..

Li Ching-Yuen was a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor who lived to the age of 256 having over 200 descendants during his life span and surviving 23 wives.

How did he do it?
