Beating Addictions

1. Balance brain chemicals

After addiction the brain chemicals are out of balance and need to be corrected. Biochemical imbalances can also cause mental problems.

To identify your imbalances, complete the Food for the Brain Questionnaire at the following web address Imbalances can differ from person to person and genetic makeup and type of drug used can influence brain chemicals. Interventions are nutritionally based.

2. Rectify nutritional deficiencies to support withdrawal symptoms

Once a patient has stopped using drugs, a number of symptoms may remain like:

  • Drug cravings

  • Sugar and carbohydrate cravings

  • Salt cravings

  • Depression

  • Internal shakiness

  • Trembling

  • Restlessness

  • Impulsitivity

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Lack of energy/fatigue

  • Hypersensitvity to noise, pain and/or stress

  • Irritability

  • Sleep problems

  • Negative self-talk

  • Sense of emptiness

The above symptoms can lead back to addiction. By adding a nutrition-based program most of the symptoms disappear and lay a foundation for the patient to lead a normal life and be integrated into society.
