Weight Loss - Quit Smoking

Pack: 100 ml / 8 weeks supply
Dose: 15 drops added to liquid and taken three times daily.

It is common knowledge the smokers who quit, often find that they put weight on and some actually take up the habit again, simply in an effort to regain control over their weight.

The simple arguments that putting food in your mouth rather than a cigarette as a nervous reaction or that nicotine suppresses your appetite are both true to some extent but not very helpful to those struggling with the situation.

It is hard enough exercising enough self-control to break a habit as addictive as smoking without having to exercise a whole other lot of self-control to stop from compensating for the loss of smoking, by snacking.

The herbal formulation for the Quit Smoking Weight Control program works at a whole lot of different levels to try to support the entire process. It contains herbs to begin the process of rehabilitating the lungs and clearing the toxins from the system; to begin the process of repair to the heart and circulation system and; to rebalance the metabolism especially insofar as the management of adrenal energy is concerned. All this is necessary work, but it does not stop you putting snacks in your mouth instead of cigarettes.

To understand what is really going on besides the withdrawal of a physical addiction, you need to know why smoking is so popular especially in a social context.

In the energetic sense smoking is a way of placing a smoke screen over the heart Chakra. This is to say it helps protect you from others seeing what you really have in your heart. If you fill you lungs constantly with smoke and toxins you somehow protect your heart from exposing its innermost feelings, normally because you are afraid of opening up and being hurt. Another way of protecting yourself from being hurt is to build up a bigger layer of padding around you.

Of course, neither smoke nor padding really helps at all much, but giving both these strategies up also involves facing up to the whole issue of why you are so afraid of exposing your feelings and that is a whole new bag of worms.

For these reasons I also include herbs and homeopathic remedies all to do with sensitivity, vulnerability and to support the process of change in the emotional sense. You will need to take the opportunity of giving up smoking to also do some work on the emotional sensitivity and, if you manage to do this as well, you can really leave a lot of baggage behind, as well as the smoking habit.

My Quitting Smoking Weight Control support program contains; Blue Flag, Cactus, Elecampane, Garlic, Hawthorne, Horsetail, Liquorice, Maritime Pine, Nettle, Oats, Rosehips, Rue, Violet Leaves, and a selection of appropriate Bach Flower remedies.

15 drops three times per day taken in water, a little reflection on your heart, and dietary changes including healthy meals and no snacking at all between meals, should all help to turn things around. Good luck.
