For those who experience withdrawal from regular marijuana use, there are many common side effects to overcome. In my practice as a leading cannabis cessation specialist, I have found that diet can have a huge impact on withdrawal success rates and that eating right will speed up the process of getting clean. The question for those who want to stop using cannabis is: what is the most important food to stop drug addiction?
Three times a day, every day – Getting your diet regular will reap the benefits. When the right food is combined with the preparation of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it works well to prevent fatigue and keep your brain high.
Cleanse Your Liver – Your liver removes toxins – it works longer than you put medicine into your body. Milk thistle taken as a supplement is a useful liver tonic.
Improve digestion – Yes, this is as true for those who have retired from marijuana as it is for others – good digestion gives your body the best chance to function properly. So, start the day with great grains and roughage (bran and oats are good) and switch from highly processed white bread to whole food options.
Love Water – Cheap, rich, calorie free, sugar free, thirst quenching and refreshing for body and soul. The human brain is 85% water and even a small amount of dehydration will impair mental performance and quick response. Drink 2 liters per day, every day. Get Nuts – Packed with goodness and perfect as “distraction food” when you’re feeling tempted, or as a pick-me-up if you’re feeling down any time of the day. Less interference is better, so try to avoid highly salty varieties or those with a roasted coating. Heavenly Honey – During a detox, there is a temptation to turn to chocolate or other empty calories. This will undoubtedly lead to sugar highs and make the process of quitting cannabis more difficult. However, the sweet tooth will be happy to know that honey is a good alternative to stocking up on processed sugar. Full of antioxidants and easily added to various foods or drinks, honey is a unique natural remedy. Go for the least expensive design option you can find for maximum value.
An apple a day – You know, the popular song “keeps the doctor away” – well, maybe there’s some truth to that. Treat yourself to an apple about an hour or two before you go to bed, you will be rewarded with all the goodness of nature and pay for every meal of the night.
