Alcohol Tobacco and Drug Addiction Solutions

Integrative Medicine methods can prove to be a powerful healing force to people in recovery from addictions to Alcohol, Tobacco and Drugs.

Integrative medicine has advanced recently but very few of the powerful and healing integrative medicine methods have been made available to those in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions.

Recovery of the whole person – mind, body and spirit is crucial to recovery. This also describes precisely the Integrative Medicine approach to any physical or mental disorder provided by NIHA (National Integrated Health Associates) .

Addictions may be the cause of 90% of prison incarcerations, 50% of psychiatric admissions and 25% of admissions to general medical hospitals, as well as a major factor in the incidence of suicides, murders, vehicular homicides, spouse battering, divorce and other kinds of social and occupational upheaval. When a loved one is suffering from an addiction, the stress of that relationship (codependency) can be at the root of any medical or psychiatric disorder, and this cause of illness is often overlooked by both conventional and non-conventional health care providers.

Generally speaking, when a recovering person or their loved one looks for help, they will find assistance for a recovery of mind and spirit – but not the body. You may even find “energy” treatments like acupuncture, but few resources are available to assist you in the natural regeneration of neurotransmitters like serotonin, or to assist in detoxifying your body from the residual poisons left over from the use of drugs and alcohol.

NIHA offers this missing link in recovery- a recovery of the body. For instance, they offer amino acid precursor therapies to help restore the imbalanced neurotransmitters that may have caused substance abuse in the first place. These amino acid and nutritional therapies can be delivered through nutritional supplements, intravenously and trans-dermally (through the skin).

How To Quit Smoking Naturally

March 28th, 2010 · No Comments

The addictive substance in cigarettes, nicotine, is one of the most powerful poisons on earth.

Nicotine is so toxic that as few as two or three drops of pure nicotine applied directly to the skin of an average person will kill him or her within minutes. In lower doses, it can cause high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, heart palpitations and irregular heartbeat, tremors, convulsions, and central nervous system over-stimulation. There is no known antidote for nicotine poisoning.

How is it that so many people habitually use such a powerful and potentially deadly toxic substance on a daily basis?

How is it that smokers who are addicted to nicotine are given prescriptions to the very substance they’re hooked on in order to stop smoking? Doesn’t this seem strange?

The answer to both questions lies in the way our brains work. And by the way, so does the answer to the question, “How can I quit smoking without resorting to using nicotine (and other stop-smoking drugs) and without risking further negative health consequences?”
