Alcohol Problems and Solutions

This book explains the basic facts of alcohol abuse and  the consequences. Alcoholic Beverages are the "Great Imitators," since regular ingestion of alcoholic beverages in excess produces many disease patterns involving every part of the body. Even moderate alcohol abuse can distort the personality, emotions and intellect of the "social drinker," producing the commonest patterns of psychopathology that afflict our society. The personality distortion is a consequence of brain dysfunction cause by ethanol, other chemical pathogens in alcoholic beverages and malnutrition.

We have different readers in mind:

  • People who are close to an alcoholic and are learning more about how to help
  • People who suspect that they are drinking too much and have enough common sense and instinct for health that they are learning about alcoholism, defining their own problem and planning to solve that problem before it gets out of control
  • People in recovery who are already involved in AA, other programs and are struggling with addictive patterns of eating and drinking and need to learn more about long-term recovery.
  • People who are involved in alcohol abuse prevention programs.
  • People who are involved in the treatment of alcoholics.
  • Good self-care has several components:

  • You learn as much as you can about the problem
  • You avoid dogmatic positions and unrealistic beliefs.
  • You plan to sustain beneficial changes for years to come.

There are a variety of drinking patterns and the range of injury among alcohol abusers is great. Some are mildly injured and can recover on their own with the right tools and techniques. Others are critically injured and need hospitalization and prolonged rehabilitation with custodial supervision. The book also explains how a recovering alcoholic can restore healthy nutrition that will support long-term success. A food holiday on Alpha ENF is often the best way to begin recovery and the Alpha Nutrition Program is an ideal way to design a safer, healthier long-term diet.
