For most people looking to recover from addiction, they will turn to 12-step meetings, therapy, and pharmaceuticals to ease the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal. While these are effective methods used to beat addiction, those who turn to holistic treatment in combination are given a great chance of life long sobriety. The combination of proper nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, amino acid therapy, mind-body approaches and exercise with traditional medicine have helped thousands of people successfully recover from addiction, decreasing the probability of relapse and helping the addict start on the road to healthy, fulfilling and functional life

The Struggle With Withdrawal in Recovery

The severity of withdrawal symptoms you experience depend on the substance of abuse and how long you have been dependent upon it. There is no real way to predict the withdrawal you will experience, only an idea of what type of symptoms you will face as it is different for each person.

Withdrawal can begin within two to six hours after your last drink or use of an addictive substance. You may experience mild agitation, anxiety, restlessness, tremors, loss of appetite, insomnia, racing heartbeat, and high blood pressure. As the body begins to adjust to no longer having drugs or alcohol in its system, the severity of withdrawal symptoms will worsen, with an strong urge to drink or use drugs as cravings grow stronger. Holistic therapies will help to control these cravings and mild irritations, natural medicines will help to reduce symptoms of withdrawal and stress.


During the detoxification process, daily greens drinks containing chlorella,  will help to speed up the detox process and combat fatigue. These green drinks contain high levels of chlorophyll that assists with oxygen uptake at the level of the red blood cells, as well as magnesium that the body needs to produce energy and support the pathways of detoxification in the liver. Lemon water is also a drink that helps with the detoxification process as many suffer an electrolyte imbalance during withdrawal.  The lemon has about the same amount of potassium in a cup of standard sports drink.
