Nutritional Interventions for Treating Alcoholism, Addictions, and Food Disorders

Since 75-90% of addicts of all kinds are unable to sustain sobriety over a 1-2 year period, harnessing the power of biochemical restoration through nutrient therapy offers hope and a missing link in the addiction treatment model.

Nutrient biochemical restoration is based on the theory that addiction is the result of unbalanced chemical messengers in the brain; therefore, the addict is using behaviors or substances in an attempt to make him/herself feel better. This is described by researcher Kenneth Blum as “reward deficiency syndrome.” This workshop will introduce how nutrient therapy, including amino acid therapy and vitamin/mineral therapies, along with nutrition and exercise plans, can offer not only relief from withdrawal symptoms but sustained recovery.
