Withdrawal from tobacco products requires support to the respiratory and nervous system.
Nicotine is an alkaloid present in the tobacco plant that attaches to receptor sites in the sympathetic nervous system.
Lobelia contains lobeline, an alkaloid with a similar structure that attaches to these sites and blocks them.
The difference is that lobeline relaxes the nerves while nicotine stimulates them. Using lobelia can help reduce the craving for nicotine while lessening withdrawal symptoms.
Cigarette smoke is particularly lethal, whether you smoke or inhale it secondhand.
Cigarette smoke decreases the hemoglobin in the blood and, as a result, the blood cannot carry as much oxygen to the cells.
It also paralyses the cilia, tiny "hairs" that sweep the lungs of any debris. This, in turn, causes the lung to produce mucus that covers the cilia preventing them from doing their job.
As debris accumulates, it damages the alveoli which reduces their abilities to take oxygen.
