11/19/12 - Managing and Overcoming Addiction

6:00PM - 7:00PM

 

Addiction can plaque anyone at anytime. Americans suffer from a variety of addictions from drugs to alcohol, even different eating habits. Often addiction is a way of "self-medicating" so to speak. Imbalances in neurotransmitters, can result in a desire to participate in addictive behavior in order to alter the neurotransmitters and substitute for what is missing. Balancing neurotransmitters and correcting addictive behavior is easier done in a system that is well. While we tend to think of neurotransmitter imbalances starting in the brain, as much as 90% of neurotransmitters are made in the gut. Eating a whole foods diet has specific research that it decreases addictive behavior. This may be because of the higher nutrient quantity, and it may be because it is healthier for overall gut terrain. Many other organ systems when functioning optimally can help us to battle addiction. By improving the thyroid and adrenals, which make other molecules involved in sense of well being and pleasure and decreasing brain and overall body toxicity, the cycle of addiction can be broken. Healthy solutions exist to reset balance and restore life.
