Well Stevia is best known as a calorie-free sweetener. But studies in Germany have confirmed that stevia helps cure smoking – and alcohol – addiction. For anti-smoking therapy, buy a small bottle of liquid Stevia at your local health store, every time you feel a need to smoke put one drop on your tongue whenever you feel the desire for a cig. This simple ritual instantly and remarkably kills any craving for a smoke. You can also use it throughout the day in its powdered form if you drink coffee or tea. Stevia not only reduces high blood pressure and cures throat inflammation, it is also a good in the fight against chronic fatigue.
Stevia also handles another powerful issue with those who are trying to stop smoking. That is weight gain. Stevia helps balance your blood sugar, significantly decreasing your desire for sweets. It is safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics and has been used with great success in weight loss programs. (Remember, it is always best to check with your doctor if you have weight or blood sugar issues.)
The Stevia herb in its natural form is approximately 20 to 30 times sweeter than common table sugar. Extracts of Stevia in the form of Steviosides can range anywhere from 100 to 300 times sweeter than table sugar. And best of all, Stevia gives you a feeling of even energy, rather than the ups and downs created with white sugar.
Stevia has historically been used as a safe sweetener, a medicine (as it has antibacterial agents), a cosmetic ingredient, and as a dentifrice (in toothpastes) as it inhibits the development of plaque and cavities. In Brazil it is advertised as an anti-diabetic agent.
The Japanese tested stevia extract and found it without health risk. They incorporate it in numerous food products, including candies, ice cream, pickles, and soft drinks. In 1988, refined stevia extract was used in 41% of Japan’s multi-million-dollar market for high-intensity sweeteners.
The FDA in the United States has approved the usage of Stevia, not as a sweetener, but as a dietary supplement that helps balance blood sugar and blood pressure!
There are virtually no calories in Stevia. You can bake with Stevia since the extracts are heat stable.
Avoid Stevia formulas that are made as follows:
- Liquid formulas with alcohol in them
- White powder (just looking at it, you know it has been processed, just like white sugar).
- Stevia formulas that are liquid but are just the white powder in liquid form
Besides weight gain, ex-smokers often suffer from a dry, hacking cough that comes on suddenly and is accompanied by general anxiety. The remedy for this is Aconitum Napellus, otherwise known as the common herb monkshood, a perennial cultivated in the U.S. and Europe. Monkshood should be taken in the 30C or 30x dosage. Any higher dose should be monitored by a health care professional. Remember, homeopathic remedies are not conceived for long-term use, as they trigger the body’s own defense or immune system to take over. Licorice root sticks found in health food stores (the actual licorice root, not the black or red candy) satisfies the oral fixation for cigarette smokers as well as those who chew tobacco.
Monkshood is this bluish flower.
Lastly, all smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers should practice deep breathing to exercise the lungs.
Is Sugar a Drug?
White sugar is so altered from its original plant form that it is actually a drug.
Sugar and sweets can be as addictive as cigarettes, drugs, or alcohol. Sugar can be as difficult to give up as these health-damaging addictions.
Physiologically, sugar and sweets excite the same circuits in your brain that are stimulated by pleasure-inducing drugs, giving you a mild and short-lived high.
The immune system is immobilized and the body pulls nutrients to digest sugar, placing a heavy burden on the pancreas, liver, and entire body. It creates physical, mental and emotional problems.
- The average North American consumes 153 pounds of sugar per year.
- One can of soda pop contains approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar.
- Six teaspoons of sugar lowers the immune system 25% for 12 hours.
- Fifteen teaspoons of sugar lowers the immune system 95% for 12 hours
- Sugar causes the pancreas to malfunction, leading to hypoglycemia, diabetes, and mood swings.
- Artificial sweeteners are as dangerous as sugar.
Did you know that even tobacco leaves are soaked in sugar? There you have a double addiction. Also, what is in most alcoholic beverages? Sugar!
There is a solution, which in fact has been around for hundreds of years. The wonderful solution is the herb Stevia Rebaudiana.
