Fight Alcoholism Through Nutrition

April 30th, 2007 · No Comments

After years of research, Joan Mathews Larson, Ph.D., author of Seven Weeks To Sobriety – The Proven Program To Fight Alcoholism Through Nutrition, set up an addiction treatment clinic in Minneapolis, MN that has over a 70% success rate. The Health Recovery Center was a pioneer in a holistic way of treating patients.

Dr. Larson states that “talk therapy” can help with coping skills and serious emotional issues but it cannot repair your alcohol altered brain and nervous system or banish the depression, unstable moods, and cravings that stem from the biochemical changes alcohol brings about. The program focuses on biochemical repair and restoration.

The recovery program is built around two premises:

1. Addressing the substances that must be kept out of the body (including alcohol and other drugs, such as nicotine, caffeine, and refined sugars).

2. Addressing the substances that must be restored (brain and body nutrients depleted by alcohol or drugs)

An extensive lab test is first conducted to determine the overall status of the body. This is usually followed by a detox program and then a custom nutrition and supplement schedule. By the end of 7 weeks, most patients have made dramatic progress.

It makes total sense that you need to correct the body chemistry to solve the health condition.
