California Alcohol and Drug Programs

May 31st, 2009 · No Comments

nutrition for addiction recovery Renee Zito spoke at the “Brain Repair” conference I attended last month. She was appointed Director of the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on February 22, 2007. In her role, she leads the State’s alcohol and drug treatment and prevention efforts. She oversees approximately 300 employees in the Department and is responsible for an annual budget of $600 million, which includes funding for both the federal Substance abuse Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant and the Drug Medi-Cal program.

Ms. Zito supports successful drug court programs such as the Sacramento Drug Court Program which has saved the taxpayers millions of dollars. Instead of pharmaceutical bandaids, Sacramento actually cures the core reason for the drug addiction with the emphasis on brain repair with specific nutritional supplements.

Sugar Addicts 7 Step Solution

May 31st, 2009 · No Comments

Kathleen DesMaisons, PhD, was one of the speakers at the “Brain Repair” conference I attended last month. She is author of “Potatoes Not Prozac“, “The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program” and others. She is the first person to receive a doctorate in addictive nutrition and has more than 30 years experience working in public health and nutrition.

Many people who suffer from sugar sensitivity don’t even know it and they continue to consume large quantities of sweets, breads, pasta, or alcohol. She says her research shows indulging in sugar highs should be treated much more seriously like heroin or alcohol dependency because sugar causes damage in various neurotransmitters just like those drugs and can eventually wreak your health and relationships.

Below are Dr. DesMaison’s seven steps that will free you from the Jekyll and Hyde Syndrome of sugar addiction.

7 Step Solution for Sugar Addiction

2. Journal what you eat and how you feel

Cigarette Manufacturers Lose Case

May 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

A federal appeals court on May 22, 2009, agreed with the major elements of a 2006 landmark ruling that found the nation’s top tobacco companies guilty of racketeering and fraud for deceiving the public about the dangers of smoking.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington upheld requirements that manufacturers change the way they market cigarettes. The requirements, which have been on hold pending appeal, would ban labels such as “low tar,” “light,” “ultra light” or “mild,” since such cigarettes have been found to be no safer than others because of how people smoke them.

Danger of Toxic and Heavy Metals

May 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Anyone who has a drug addiction should be tested for toxic and heavy metals as they are probably the most dangerous because of their potential to cause long-term and potentially irreversible brain injury.

The most common elements to test for are lead, mercury, and aluminum (also cadmium for smokers).

Do you have mercury tooth fillings? If yes, then have them removed.

Do you still have aluminum cookware? If so, throw it out!
