Herbal Remedies for Drug Addiction

Herbal Remedies for Drug Addiction - Ayurvedic Medicines-Natural Treatment

drug addiction

Why are people addicted? In the majority of cases (excluding tragic situations such as babies who are born addicted because of their mother's addiction), people who are addicted start out simply seeking more pleasure and joy in their life. Their life is difficult and unhappy, their relationships may be painful and unfulfilling, they may be dissatis?fied and stressed at work, and they simply don't know how to deal with the situation. So they escape from the reality of their cir?cumstances into drugs or alcohol.

Whether the addictive substance is tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, or something else, it soon goes beyond being a psychological escape and becomes a chemical dependency.

Then, unless a certain level of the addictive substance is present in the blood, the per. son's brain doesn't function properly.

Treatment depends on how serious and long-standing the addiction is. For milder addictions, such as a recent smoking habit, the person may simply be able to stop. Bul it a chronic alcoholic suddenly stops drinking, it creates alcohol withdrawal syndrome that is difficult to deal with.


To effectively handle the problem of addiction, it is important to do pan-chakarma, an effective Ayurvedic cleansing and detox program. There are herbal products like Triphala capsules or Vara Churna, Aloe vera Juice, Yakrit Plihantak Churna ( For Liver), which are useful for cleansing and preventing liver damage due to alcohol.

Yakrit Plihantak Churna - Yakrit Plihantak Churna is a herbal mixture of rare herbs to improve liver function and remove toxins from within the body. It is one of the best detox remedies. It is useful even in many complicated diseases of liver, like liver cirrhosis. It is also useful in many skin problems as all the skin problems are related to liver disorder. Skin problems like Acne, eczema, Psoriasis, etc. respond very well to this formulation. Other herbal formulations like Kumari Saar, Kaishore Guggul, Neem capsules can be used along with this to get immediate results. It helps the liver in clearing away the toxins. It regenerates the liver cells and prevents liver failure. It is useful in liver cirrhosis, jaundice, liver damage due to alcohol, toxins and infection. Here are how different herbs in Yakrit Plihantak Churna helps to restore liver function. The herb Katuki increases the bile production whereas Makoye, Bhringraj and Kalmegh improve liver function. Punarnava and Bhumi amla regenerate liver cells and are useful in liver enlargement and inflammation. Giloy is immunomodulator and corrects liver metabolism. The combination of herbs is a wonderful remedy for all liver problems and 'pitta' disorders.

Dose Reduction

Along with this cleansing program, slowly decrease the dose of addictive substance. According to Ayurveda unless some strong medications are available to deal with withdrawal, it is not good to completely stop using the addictive sub stance all at once, or a stressful withdraw~ syndrome will probably occur.

With nicotine toxicity (which affect the lungs and cardiovascular system) and alcohol toxicity (which affects the liver) we have to strengthen the affected organs. For alcohol toxicity, use this formula:

  • chitrak 3 parts
  • kutki 3 parts
  • Take 1/2 teaspoon of these herbs, with) tablespoons of Aloe vera Juice (Kumari Saar), 3 limes a day.

Ayurveda suggests a bitter wine made of Aloe vera juice. (It is called kumari Saar.) In place of hard liquor or other alcoholic drinks, the person who is addicted to alco?hol can take small amounts of this light, dry wine. Try 4 teaspoons diluted with an equal amount of water. Then gradually reduce the amount of herbal wine in the dose, while at the same time using the above herbal formula to strengthen the damaged liver. Use along with Yakrit Plihantak Churna as suggested above.

The same applies to tobacco. For a person who is addicted to nicotine, remove one third to one-half of the tobacco from each cigarette (at the end you light), and fill the paper with a mixture of rose petals, brahmi, and jatamamsi (equal proportions). Smoke it until the tobacco starts burning. The mo?ment the tobacco starts, put out the cigarette and discard it.

Nasal Medicine

Doing nasya with brahmi ghee will also reduce the toxicity of nicotine (see appendix 3).


Most of the time, whenever there is the desire to drink or to smoke, the per?son should go out for a walk in the fresh air, or do some other exercise, or go for a swim.


If there is strong alcohol addiction and the person experiences a head?ache, tremors, drowsiness, depression, or other alcohol withdrawal symptoms when he or she stops drinking, see a doctor right away: Medical help is needed.

Appetite Stimulation

Some people drink because they have a low appetite. Unless they have a drink, they never feel hungry. In such cases, instead of alcohol, they can have some ginger tea to stimulate their appetite (see also "Appetite, Low"). Or try this recipe for a tea to stimulate agni, the digestive fire:

Yoga Asanas

Some yoga exercises will also be beneficial. Sun Salutations Should be included, and some Alternate Nostril breathing. So Hum Meditation will also be helpful.
