Q: I’m probably your worst nightmare, but I’m a 43 yr old woman who started smoking around the age of 14. I have a 4yr old son, who means the world to me… Therefore I really wish I could quit smoking, but it is my emotional stress release, I have been through a lot in the past year which I turned to smoking and drinking… I am not going to lie I enjoy smoking, but I want to be around for my son, so I need to quit. Do you think a cleanse could help me in this… I know there is a lot of medications and things I can do, but I don’t like prescriptions of any sort… And I really want to cleanse out my body… Thank you in advance.
A: You can cleanse and heal your body from the damage that was done to it. The most important thing, and something you can implement right away, is to introduce more living foods into your diet. Living foods are fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds in the raw form (uncooked). If you can get them organic that would be preferable. Second, performing a juice cleanse would greatly benefit you and help kick-start the process. If you have never done a cleanse before, you could start with just two days and see how you are feeling.

Third, Lobelia leaf is an herb that is the best herb for helping to eliminate nicotine addition. It’s a great herb for people who are looking to stop smoking.
