Homeopathic Treatment for Drug Addiction

What is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is a condition in which a person develops a compulsive habit of taking drugs. An addict is unable to control the use of drugs. He continues to have the drugs, despite being aware of the harm they cause. People become addicts because of various reasons. Initially, it may be voluntary, out of curiosity, to have a good time, or to ease problems such as stress and depression. Some people take drugs to improve athletic performance. Once a person starts having problems at a physical, mental, and social level due to drug intake, it is a clear indication of drug addiction. An addict does things to get the drug which he normally wouldn’t do, such as stealing. Drug addiction makes a person dull, lacking in energy and motivation. People are mostly addicted to alcohol, cocaine, morphine, heroin, marijuana, hallucinogens (LSD, PCP), and crystal meth. Homeopathy is an effective way to deal with drug addiction. Homeopathic treatment for drug addiction uses a three pronged approach to address the problem. Firstly, homeopathic medicines help in recovering from symptoms that a person is experiencing because of the drugs. Secondly, they help in curing withdrawal symptoms. Lastly, homeopathic medicines help a person to fight the compulsive habit of drug taking. Homeopathic medicines are very safe and effective and are free from any toxic effects. Homeopathic treatment along with proper counseling can help a person regain control of his life.

What are the Symptoms of Drug Addiction?

The common signs and symptoms of drug addiction are dullness, confusion, headache, vomiting, hallucinations, and insomnia. An addict has a sense of euphoria and an elevated mood. Indifference to, and a reduced sense of pain are also present. Red eyes, a dry mouth, and violent throbbing are seen in people who are addicted to drugs. Drug addiction is a severe problem, and patients experience withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop the use of drugs. These withdrawal symptoms are similar to the effects of drug addiction.

      Dr. Sharma,
      What remedy can be used for methadone withdrawal if the drug becomes unavailable to my son at his methadone clinic? I am a nurse and use many otc remedies with great success. I’m afraid Covid will cause lockdowns and his clinic will not be dispensing his daily dose of 120mg of methadone. I want to help him through withdrawal if this occurs. Thank you for any advice you can give.

        Dr. Sharma:
        My son is addicted to opioids and tobacco for the last 20 years. Even as a young child I knew something was off. We saw many, many doctors with no results. I believe that it was brain issues. Never seem to be happy without using alchohol, drugs. A lot of depression and anxiety. Zack had a lot of trauma in his life. At the age of 14 his friend hung himself. He lost a lot of friends due to drugs. He has very low self esteem. He has two beautiful little boys that need him. He is a kind loving man when he is not on drugs. Has never hurt anyone but himself. Yesterday he signed back up to the metrodome program. I’m not convinced that this is the right path for him. At this point he is spiraling out-of-control. He smokes cigarettes way too much! Please…can you give me a starting point for this man before it is too late.

  4. Paula Wynburne says:

    I have a friend who is addicted to heroin. Currently she is on substitute and reducing her dosage. I gave her Nat Mur 1M as she has a history of abuse, deaths in the family (5 in last year). She described it as a miracle and is feeling much better. I then gave Staph 30 as she had been sexually abused. She feels able to cut her morphine. I want a support remedy to aid her with pain as she reduces further.

    Many years ago my boyfriend in India was given 2 remedies and he withdrew with little side effects and he stayed off long term. I can’t recall the names. Both began with C.

    Can you suggest remedies that might help.

    Many thanks

  18. Heather Hughey says:

    I just want to acknowledge how interesting and appropriate for the current opiate/drug addiction epidemic. Thank you for devoting time and knowledge towards something that has the potential to make a difference.

    Now I would like to ask for your advice and help with the destructive, traumatic, and relentless addiction {DOC: IV heroin w/ meth=speedballs but if truth be told I have a problem with anything that can be IV used or be a head change, along with perfectionism and people pleasing to the extremes. I have been dependent on drugs (DOC in beginning was marijuana, pain pills, and cocaine but once I went IVing it I feel like it took any kind of hope from me and has been a struggle in its self aside from the actual drugs) since I was 15 years old, and I am now 30 years old and have not achieved a full year yet of sobriety, the longest I’ve been without drugs was 8 months last year then slipped up again for 4 months but had been clean7 months only to let myself be defeated AGAIN by this disease 2 days ago. Yes I am now looking into different approaches to recovery and seeking new solutions or treatments for the mix of psychological problems that accompany my poly drug addiction. I’ve tried to be very thorough and transparent so that you have all the areas and issues I require attention and healing.

    Also how would I go about finding a way or someone that would let me try a formula that is designed personally for the areas and problems specific to me. If I am not able to sample one what is the price range I am looking at and would it be counteracting with Methadone.

    Thank you for the work you do and the passion and empathy that is shown thru helping people find a more balanced and pure solution to problems that are such a threat to humanity. Perhaps people need to be enlightened on the approaches to combat addiction, OCD, trauma and all the baggage that accompanies them–new and effective ways that have been a part of eastern medicine for centuries—Our generation has to find different, more natural and safe ways to heal our bodies physically to emotionally then mentally also spiritually bc it allows for us to be centered with the universe and ultimately that will be a healthy place to be.

    If you could send me some more information on the holistic/homeopathic approach to addiction and trauma–also I am interested in anything there is to know about using holistic methods on children
