Easing Withdrawal - Diet and Supplements

Excerpt:

"The following day take 2-3 grams of vitamin C to help to detoxify the
blood. Also take a high potency vitamin B complex*and the
minerals*selenium, magnesium and zinc. Essential fatty acids are also
helpful to reduce alcohol toxicity. L- Glutamine has been shown to
reduce cravings for alcohol and is used in many detox clinics. The
mineral chromium is also helpful with blood sugar problems linked to
alcohol consumption.

Diet and supplements are helpful during alcohol withdrawal. Withdrawal
can last from a few days to a week. The diet needs to concentrate on
more alkaline forming foods such as fruits, raw vegetables, vegetable
broths and soups as these are all soothing to the depleted nervous
system. Eat plenty of whole grains such as brown rice, millet, buckwheat
and rice pasta and light proteins such as chicken and fish.

The addition of amino acids can also be helpful. L -tryptophan which is
a precursor of serotonin in the brain (our feel good chemical) can be
taken, 2-3 grams, to help with sleep and relaxation.
L-Glutamine can be taken to help to reduce the craving for alcohol.
Vitamin C is excellent during the detox period. Extra vitamins and
minerals can be taken to replace the ones already lost from alcohol
consumption. High levels of B vitamins especially niacin with
vitamin*C have had excellent results.

Minerals such as magnesium, zinc and chromium need to be taken to
encourage healthy energy levels and to replete lost stores. A high fibre
diet will encourage the elimination of toxins. Olive oil will help the
liver and the gall bladder to clear the toxins that are released during
detox. The essential fatty acids, omega 3 and 6 are needed to help to
restore integrity to the cells and to reduce any inflammation that may
have ensued from alcohol consumption."

>Diet and supplements are helpful during alcohol withdrawal.
That's what I'm doin' now -fish for dinner tonight, olive oil and vinegar
salad, plenty of vitamins.

Yesterday I mixed a glass of "Lemon water with a couple of teaspoons of
olive oil and a quarter teaspoon or capsule of cayenne pepper will help
detoxify the liver." Pretty strange concoction, but maybe it did some
good. Feeling LOT'S better today...

Re: Easing Withdrawal - Diet and Supplements

fred,
don't fall for the "liver detox
crap"................................there is absolutely no proof
that the liver can be manually detoxed!
in between your meetings, (your going to lots of them right?) try
to eat well, take your vitamins and get some
rest.................your body will almost always, take care of
everything else!

Wishing you well, Fred.


Excerpts:

"Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum Frutescens)
Cayenne has been used medicinally for thousands of years: improves
circulation by its stimulating properties, reduces inflammatory
conditions of blood vessels, purifies the blood by its cleansing and
purging effect - it is an excellent expeller of poisons and toxins,
promotes healing, lowers cholesterol and reduces risk of heart disease,
helps to break down cholesterol deposits in the body.

Consumption of cayenne stimulates the gut's mucosal cells, which release
more slimy mucous that nearly coats the wall of intestines, including
sore and bleeding ulcers. Studies indicate that cayenne can be
beneficial for our health, especially for our hearts, by its blood
purifying, blood pressure and cholesterol-lowering capabilities.

As for its cholesterol-lowering capabilities, research showed that when
cayenne was taken along with dietary cholesterol, it prevented
significantly the rise in liver and serum cholesterol levels."



"Monounsaturated fatty acids - as contained in olive oil - reduce total
and LDL cholesterol concentrations without reducing the levels of HDL
cholesterol, thus leading to favorable changes in the serum lipid
profile and possibly to changes in the physico-chemical properties of
lipoproteins. In this way, olive oil with its high monounsaturated fatty
acid content may contribute to the prevention and management of
hypercholesterolaemia, a dominant risk factor for the development of
atherosclerosis, and to the prevention of CHD"

"The beneficial health effects of olive oil are due to both its high
content of monounsaturated fatty acids and its high content of
antioxidant substances."

"The oil from olives contains very low levels of polyunsaturated fatty
acids. In fact, around 70% is made up of a monounsaturated fatty acid,
called oleic acid. Olive oil contains just the right combination of
fatty acids to keep the cholesterol level under control, a quality no
other oil has."
