During this pandemic outburst, it can be difficult to find yourself a detoxification center that helps you go free from your addiction. But worry not, for in this blog, we will tell you how you can get rid of your addiction at home as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc
What is detox from alcohol and drugs?
Detoxification also called ‘detox,’ is the process in which an individual’s body rids itself of a drug or toxin. The purpose of detoxing from alcohol and drugs is to remove all toxins from the body so that it can begin to heal itself and rebuild any damage.
The benefits of detoxing
Detoxification from alcohol and drugs provides many physical, emotional, and psychological benefits such as:
- Improved energy levels
- Clear thinking
- Better sleep
- Relief from cravings
- Restoration of natural hormonal balance
How to detox at home?
There are many methods you can detox at home from drugs to get rid of your body of all toxins following
Drinking lots of water: Water is a natural diuretic and helps flush toxic substances out of the body via urination. It also has the added benefit of helping reduce cravings.
Eating well: Food is fuel for the body and provides it with essential nutrients. In addition, eating well helps maintain a stable blood sugar level, which is important as fluctuating blood sugar levels can trigger cravings for alcohol and drugs.
Milk Thistle: This herb contains silymarin, an antioxidant that protects liver cells from toxins and supports the regeneration of new liver cells. Milk thistle is particularly useful in the first few weeks of your detox
Dandelion: The root of this weed stimulates bile production, which helps improve digestion and stimulate the elimination of waste by the liver. It also has a mild diuretic effect and encourages overall detoxification throughout the body.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine): This vitamin is a powerful detoxifier, particularly when combined with the other B vitamins. It helps to break down alcohol and toxins in the bloodstream and supports liver function and cell regeneration
Vitamin C: Another powerful antioxidant, which also helps to reduce cravings and depression.
Arnica: A homeopathic remedy made from the herb arnica, can be used to treat bruises, pain and swelling associated with alcohol withdrawal
Nux Vomica: Another homeopathic remedy made from the herb strychnine, nux vomica, can be helpful in treating cravings for stimulants such as cocaine and amphetamines.
Risk of detox at home
Detoxing at home can be effective and safe for many people, but it is not suitable for everyone.
Some factors that may make detox at home unsuitable include:
- Poor health
- Presence of a medical condition
- Inability to remain abstinent from alcohol or drugs during the recovery period
- Having recently relapsed
It is important to note that detoxing at home is not suitable for everyone. If you have any medical conditions or are on any medications, it’s best to check with your doctor before beginning a detox program.
