Additional Information

There are several factors to consider in regaining a healthy relationship with alcohol. Certainly from a psychological and emotional perspective, Annie Grace, her book and podcast are fabulous. From a physical point of view there are some fundamentals that can really assist a person in helping their body cope with the change in alcohol consumption.

A cornerstone of supporting the body in alcohol recovery is addressing fluctuations in blood sugar. Alcohol is a refined carbohydrate and as such produces big swings in blood sugar. Almost all people who have alcohol control issues have low blood sugar states called hypoglycemia. In this state, irritability and cravings are common. 

If there is a blood sugar issue, there is an adrenal issue. The adrenal glands modulate stress in the body and are intimately involved in blood sugar regulation. Therefore it is crucial to support the body’s blood sugar handling system with targeted nutrients that help stablize the blood sugar on many levels including adrenal support.
 

Another important foundational principle in alcohol recovery is supplying the right amino acid to help heal the gut and brain. Alcohol damages the lining of the gut and alters the composition and response of the feel good chemicals in your brain. To help repair the gut and provide the most important building block in the production of the anti anxiety neurotransmitter GABA, it is essential to consume this amino acid called L Glutamine.
 

Finally, people who have a hard time controlling their alcohol intake have a quirk in their metabolisms of omega 6 fats. It is very important to provide the depleted  element in fat metabolisms to help control the craving of alcohol consumption and to help with depression. 

To feel better, people drink excessively in an attempt to achieve higher levels of a compound called Prostaglandin E1, an important brain metabolite derived from essential fatty acids (EFAs). Alcohol stimulates temporary production of PGE1 and lifts a person’s mood. When drinking is stopped, PGE1 levels fall again and depression returns. To banish it, people turn again to alcohol. Thus, a downward spiral toward alcohol control issues begins. 

During the past 15 years, researchers have found that if they restore the PGE1 levels to normal range in patients suffering from alcohol control issues, they can eliminate both the depression and the need to drink for relief. This can be achieved with a substance called GLA, which can be easily converted to PGE1.  

Although there are many nutrient approaches for excessive alcohol consumption the best 3 supplements to start with to support a person wanting to control their alcohol intake are:

Bioglycozyme Forte (1 bottle)

L-glutamine powder (1 Bottle)

Black currant seed oil (4 bottles)

It is best to start with half the dosage for the first 3 days or so.

These are no ordinary supplements. They come from a top nutritional company in the world that tests the raw materials before they are manufactured for purity, effectiveness and lack of contamination. The same thing happens after the supplement is produced.

PROTOCOL

Bioglycozyme Forte (1 bottle) take 2 capsules three times a day in between meals

L-glutamine powder (1 bottle) take 1 scoop per day in any liquid

Black currant seed oil (4 bottles) take  2 gel caps three times a day

This combination should last about 45 days.  

It is best to start with half the dosage for the first 3 days or so. 

Please allow 1-2 business days for order processing (this does not include ship time).

If you have any questions about these nutrients I encourage you to call the office and speak with me.

To your health!
