6 Natural Ways to Fight Withdrawal Symptoms

By Mountainside

Withdrawal symptoms occur when an addicted individual has stopped consuming drugs or alcohol. While withdrawal affects everyone differently, you can expect to experience emotional symptoms such as anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, depression, and irritability. Once you quit using substances, your body needs to recover. Common physical withdrawal symptoms include headaches, racing heart, muscle tension, tremors, difficulty breathing, and vomiting.

These symptoms can lead to high levels of stress, which can increase the chances of relapse.

Incorporating these holistic therapies into your daily life can help reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms.

2. Yoga

3. Meditation

5. Art therapy
