Can Using Eucalyptus Oil And Hot Water Eliminate Nicotine In The Lungs?
Hello doctor goodnight. I want to ask if using eucalyptus oil which is dripped in hot water can eliminate nicotine or cigarette poison in the lungs?
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Nicotine is an addictive substance in cigarettes that can cause dependence. Within 24 hours after smoking, the nicotine levels in the blood will decrease and excreted through the rest of the metabolites in the urine. The number will decrease to very low even disappear after 5-7 days after stopping smoking. Although the body has the ability to eliminate nicotine, but if smoking continues, the nicotine levels will be difficult to reduce.
The use of eucalyptus oil mixed with hot water will not be able to eliminate cigarette toxins in the body. There is no research in the medical field also related to this matter so the effect was not known with certainty.
Cigarettes contain various chemicals that are harmful to the body. Cigarette smoke containing thousands of toxic chemicals will enter the blood vessels in the lungs, then enter the blood circulation throughout the body and absorbed by the body. If done repeatedly, the risk of disease will increase because free radicals and toxic chemicals can disrupt the process of cell metabolism in the body.
Therefore, try to do the activities to stop smoking gradually. Start with intention and seek the support of people around you to help reduce smoking.
So much information that I can do, hopefully it helps
