Hey, this is Matt with a brand new training video on home remedies for opiate withdrawal. In this video, I’m going to teach you how to eliminate your opiate withdrawal symptoms from home. So we’re gonna start off with the most powerful home remedies for opiate withdrawal that anybody could possibly use to reduce your symptoms and feel better fast.
The two main ones that help you the most are gabapentinoids and the two main gabapentinoids are the brand-name drugs Neurontin and the generic name for that is gabapentin and then the generic pregabalin drug which is named Lyrica. So both of these drugs can reduce your withdrawal symptoms absolutely the most.
I’ve been doing this for over six and a half years now and I got to tell you that the most benefit you could ever get using anything to reduce your opioid withdrawal symptoms from home, is one of these two medications.
So if you have one of these or if you can get one of these prescribed from your doctor, these are gonna offer you the most opiate withdrawal symptoms relief and then another very powerful medication is benzodiazepines.
These are drugs, anti-anxiety drugs so the brand names as you see are here on the left things like Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Ativan, and Librium these can also offer you very good opioid withdrawal symptoms relief.
I forgot to add that end but clonidine is a blood pressure medication that can work extremely well to reduce opiate withdrawal symptoms, it can help with anxiety it can reduce your high blood pressure that comes from opiate withdrawal.
It can help you sleep so that’s a very amazing one as well and all those drugs that I just mentioned can be very addictive, habit-forming and they can cause dependence and you can get withdrawal symptoms if you have a dependence so it’s always best to use them short-term at the most 7 to 12 days – maybe 14 days under the care of your doctor.
Don’t use any of the things in this video out talking to a doctor first, this is just an informational use not medical advice but those prescription medications I mentioned can work extremely well and now we come into the over-the-counter medicines things like Imodium AD which is the generic name which you can buy has loperamide HCL this can really help with not only the diarrhea but can also help with the stomach cramping, it can help you eat food without getting nauseous and if you take enough of it a little bit over the prescribed amount on the box it can even reduce all of your opiate withdrawal symptoms or most of them.
Now I don’t recommend megadosing Imodium AD like some people suggest you can actually get really high off this and it’s very addicting some people add white grapefruit juice to it and Tagamet and that pushes it past the blood-brain barrier normally it’s an opioid agonist on the myenteric plexus of the large intestine so it acts as our opioid on the intestines but it doesn’t cross the blood-brain barrier so some people mega dose this, taking much more than prescribed adding white grapefruit juice and Tagamet which help to break down certain enzymes and get it past blood-brain barrier and you can get extremely high and addicted to this, so be careful only use it as prescribed for diarrhea, drink plenty of fluids when you’re taking it.
Another very powerful over over-the-counter medicine for opiate withdrawals Robitussin but you want to get the one with only DXM HBr IN the ingredients, you find something that has 15 milligrams of DXM Hydra bromide that can really help to reduce withdrawal symptoms not only does it increase serotonin but it’s also an NMDA antagonist and those types of drugs whether natural or prescription have been shown to radically reduce withdrawal symptoms.
Then we got Benadryl, so the active ingredient that is diphenhydramine which is an antihistamine that can help you with anxiety and help you with insomnia.
Advil is not very powerful you know ibuprofen but it can it’s like putting a band-aid on a broken leg taking some Advil during home opiate withdrawal can help a little bit with the pain that you’re going to be going through and then we got topical pain relievers so a lot of people get Restless Leg Syndrome caused by opiate withdrawal so if you put Icy Hot Tiger Balm or any of the other popular topical pain relievers on the back of your legs and then put a hot washcloth around it and then a towel around -a dry towel around that and wrap them that can really help with the achy legs and the restless legs.
Then we get into natural drugs kratom or kratom or in Thailand where it mostly originates they call it Kratom, this is a plant that’s in the coffee family.
The name is mitragyna speciosa and so this one is an opioid agonist and it does bind the mu opioid receptor so this plant again and can help opiate withdrawal symptoms due to the binding capability to the opioid receptors however kratom or creative can become very addicting and habit-forming and many people have replaced one addiction for the other.
Now my thought on that is I think it would be a lot better for your body and brain to be addicted to a natural plant than a pharmaceutical medication but a lot of people – most people actually are able to use kratom for opiate withdrawal and they’re able to get off the kratom as well. Some people do get addicted so do more research on this.
Cannabis aka marijuana can also help to reduce opiate withdrawal symptoms, specifically the indica strains of cannabis are the most sedating and relaxing and can induce the most sleep but some people like to use the sativa forms of cannabis which are more mentally and emotionally uplifting and so this is now legal in some states, I don’t recommend using it if it’s illegal where you live but if it’s legal medicinally or recreationally where you live, then this might be a very powerful plant for your opiate withdrawal symptoms.
And that brings us to supplements all of these things here have been shown to reduce opiate withdrawal symptoms either in studies or anecdote so we got all these herbs right here passionflower, valerian root, milky oats, chamomile, I won’t read all of them but as you can see I wrote much more there because there are just dozens and maybe even hundreds of herbs that could help with opiate withdrawal.
What I’ve listed here are some of the ones that can help the most but again there’s much more and I know of much more but these are just some of the most amazing ones and then we got amino acids L-Tyrosine, DLPA, L-Theanine, GABA, L-Tryptophan, and there’s just so many more aminos that can help vitamins and minerals, as you see we got vitamin C, B complex, magnesium, vitamin D3, and then we got down to the other nutrients things like 5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP, maca root powder, omega-3’s, and much much much much more. So all of these what you’re trying to do with supplements is increase neurotransmitter production primarily so all these supplements can either increase serotonin or GABA or endorphins or dopamine or a combination thereof and some of the other supplements that do not crease in neurotransmitters can help in other ways.
So these are very amazing supplements you’re not going to get much benefit from just using one but if you use several of these you know maybe four or five or even up to ten of these or even more for some cases, they can help a lot and that brings us to the final slide of the remedies part and we’ve got all these other remedies so as you can see there is a ton of stuff you can do to taking home remedies for opiate withdrawal to reduce your symptoms.
We got things like exercise and sunshine, Epsom salt baths, yoga, meditation, come down to coconut water or these things to hydrate you, spring water and green tea all these things can help a lot when it comes to eating things like well done, super well done well done toast, protein shakes and crackers, fruits and veggies, healthy proteins and fats you’re looking for foods that you can digest easily when you’re going through opiate withdrawal, the well the well-cooked toast is a really good one that one is very good on your stomach.
My mom is a herbalist she taught me about that. And then you can watch movies or shows. Comedy movies and comedy stand-up can really get you laughing hard and what that does is that elevates your natural endorphins radically.
Inspirational movies can really uplift you and then binge shows so there are so many awesome shows on Amazon and Netflix and you could just get so absorbed in the show that you actually forget that you’re going through opiate withdrawal at home, if you use a combination of some of these powerful opioid withdrawal remedies and then you’re watching these shows, it’s just a great combination.
And then we got things like meditation, qigong, tai chi, biofeedback… and really there’s just so much more but this video I just wanted to give you some of the most common ones some of the easiest ones and the most well-known ones.
At this point, I’d like to offer you something if you haven’t already downloaded what it is it’s called the Free Opiate Recovery Toolkit and what that is it’s a free digital download that you can get totally private, go straight to your email, your email is never shared with anyone totally confidential and it comes with three things.
