Why Detox With Niacin Works
An individual that is addicted to alcohol and or drugs will go through a process called detoxification when he or she wants to rid the body of these toxins. It can be very scary. If a family member or you are afraid to go through this process, trained professionals are here to help.
What is the Detox Process?
For an individual to recover and live a drug free life, detoxification is necessary. The drug use has to stop and the toxins that remain in the body have to be taken out. During this time period, the body realizes that it is not receiving the drug or alcohol. Cravings for the drugs and or alcohol temporarily develop, and withdrawal symptoms begin.
Dangers of Not Using a Detox Program
When the body is deprived of its normal daily intake of drugs and or alcohol, it can greatly be affected. It is very important that a trained professional manages the progression of the body getting use to not taking in these toxins. The addict can exhibit strong mental cravens and physical withdrawal symptoms such as hallucinations, sweating, vomiting, uncontrollable shaking, diarrhea and mental outbursts, to name only a few.
Withdrawal symptoms can be different from one individual to another due to the type of drugs that were abused and to the overall health condition of his or her body. As the detoxification process continues, the body learns to operate without the drugs and adapts. The withdrawal symptoms lesson as time goes by and until they finally go away. There are medications that will ease and manage the withdrawal cravens and symptoms. Sleeping aids will help with sleeping at night.
The Niacin Detox Program
Niacin is an organic compound that contains nicotinic aid and Vitamin B. It has the ability to reach the fatty tissues in the body by diluting the capillaries or small blood vessels that are around them. The fatty tissues are where the toxins from the drug use are stored. When the niacin is given, a brief exercise period will help increase the individual’s heart rate. This will speed up its distribution throughout the entire body. Then the niacin flushes out these toxins through plenty of sweating and the drinking of water. The sweating is activated by sitting in a sauna for about three to four hours. To keep the toxins from re-entering the body, the individual needs to shower.
Pros of using niacin
- Improves blood flow within the body, which increases the circulation
- Lowers an individual’s cholesterol
- Lowers cardiovascular events such as a stroke or heart attack
- Cleanses the body of many different toxins besides the drugs
Cons of using niacin
- Can cause an individual’s face to flush in a red tone
- Skin irritations such as itching and or rashes can briefly appear
- Elevated heart rate, indigestion, fainting or shortness of breath can briefly occur
