We’re in the midst of an addiction crisis of epic and tragic proportions — not just drugs, but foods, tobacco, sex, pornography, technology (that’s a HUGE one) and general behaviours. While the face of addiction is changing, the approach hasn’t.
Our systems still prescribe to the notion that either you have an addiction, or you don’t. In reality, addiction exists on a spectrum, like most other diseases; it’s not just an on or off switch or change a certain behaviour. Certain addictions light up parts of the brain, and the body, unbeknown to you or me, requires those lights to be turned on at times. When one knows of one’s addiction, why is it that we cannot say NO when you know the consequences and the impact it is causing.
Dr. Paul Thomas, your host of The Addiction Summit, has helped thousands of patients with addiction, including his own family members. He truly knows that being an addict, whether food, tobacco, alcohol, opioids, meth, stimulants, technology and/or other behavioural addictions, does NOT have to be your genetic destiny. He’ll share that wisdom with you during The Addiction Summit, August 13-19, 2018.
Like me, you probably are or have been addicted to one thing or another. Addiction shows up in many forms. Could it also show up in the form of attachment to people or things or money. In this form is our identity shaped by what we attach ourselves too?
You may also know someone who has an addiction. Someone really close to you and if they cannot hear you, maybe it’s time to share a message that is life giving and not soul destroying. Helping others to see hope in the midst of their pain or even treat oneself to being free from being addicted.
Andrew Saul, an expert in supplementation who we truly trust for such advice, often tells the true story about Abram Hoffer being Bill W’s personal doctor (Bill W who founded AA). When Bill W’s anxiety and depression got almost totally cured through Hoffer prescribing a natural supplement (email us if you need the protocol), Bill W actually wanted to include the supplement protocol as an element in the seven steps program. He was overruled by the AA medical board, who thought he had no business messing around with vitamins. There is a lot of other research that deals with other vitamins being used to treat addiction – and very successfully as well.
An example is vitamin B1(Thiamin) deficiency which is common with regular alcohol consumption. The consequences of the deficiency has an affect on the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and neurological system. Taking high doses is vital to combat and replenish this deficiency. This must not be done in isolation from the complete and suggested protocol as vitamin B1 in isolation, is known to deplete other vitamins.
Lifestyle changes can help protect, prevent and keep an addiction from moving any farther toward the severe end of the spectrum. Paul has helped thousands of patients with addiction, including his own family members and he genuinly knows that being an addict does NOT have to be your destiny. It is NOT in your genes.
