Alcohol Withdrawal

LifeSource Vitamins

Alcohol withdrawal is a set of symptoms that occur with the elimination of alcohol when a person is psychologically and/or physiologically addicted to it.


A majority of people who have been drinking alcohol and decide to stop (often for health-related reasons) are able to do so without much trouble. Alcohol withdrawal typically becomes difficult only when problem drinkers - alcoholics-attempt to quit. Almost inevitably, alcoholics need help in achieving this goal. Sometimes, this help requires medical intervention in detoxification centers.


Finding doctors who work with alcohol detoxification is often as easy as calling the local chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and asking for referral information. Most programs successful in getting alcoholics to quit drinking are either part of the AA network or employ AA techniques. Natural approaches to alcohol withdrawal should not be a substitute for detox centers or for AA or AA related programs, but can help to alleviate symptoms.


Alcohol Withdrawal

Prescription for Natural Cures by James F. Balch and Mark Stengler

Super Prescription #1 Milk Thistle / Silymarin – LifeSource Product

Milk thistle is commonly recommended to counteract the harmful effects of alcohol on the liver. Milk thistle may protect the cells of the liver by blocking the entrance of harmful toxins and helping remove those toxins from the liver cells. Milk thistle has also been reported to regenerate injured liver cells.

Super Prescription #2 Multivitamin – High PotencyLifeSource Products - See All of our Multivitamin Products.

Taking a multivitamin-mineral supplement every day has been shown to lead to significant reduction in withdrawal symptoms and decreased stress in alcoholics.

Super Prescription #3 L-Glutamine - Pure - LifeSource Product

Research has shown that glutamine supplementation reduces alcohol intake. Take 1 gram of glutamine per day in divided portions with meals to decrease anxiety levels and the urge to drink.

Super Prescription #4 Vitamin A – Beta Carotene - LifeSource Product

Vitamin A deficient alcoholics require a doctor's intervention, including supplementation with Vitamin A and assessment of liver function.

Super Prescription #5 Vitamin B Complex - LifeSource Products – See All of our Vitamin B Products.

Deficiencies in B complex vitamins are common in alcoholics. Taking a B complex supplement may reduce alcohol cravings. Take 100 mg per day.

Super Prescription # 6 Vitamin C - LifeSource Products - See All of our Vitamin C Products.

Vitamin C (coupled with vitamin B6, niacin, and vitamin E) helps to reduce anxiety and depression in alcoholics. Take 1-3 grams per day.

Super Prescription #7 Vitamin D3 - LifeSource Products - See All of our Vitamin D Products.

Deficiencies in alcoholics are caused by malabsorption and the inability of the liver to activate it. Vitamin is a vital nutrient for bones, teeth, and transfer of calcium to the bloodstream. Take at least 200 IU per day.

Treatment

Diet

Recommended Foods

Some of the nutritional deficiencies associated with alcoholism can be caused by a poor diet, a factor that needs correction on an individual basis. Improving the overall diet should be done in conjunction with a doctor. Sometimes liver or pancreatic disease associated with alcoholism contributes to nutritional deficiencies. Eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruit and including wheat germ.

Foods to Avoid

Research shows that diets loaded with junk food increase alcohol intake in animals. In human trial, restricting sugar, increasing complex carbohydrates, and eliminating caffeine led to a reduction in alcohol craving. Reduce sugar, junk food, and caffeine intake.

Other Recommendations

Most experts agree that alcoholics must stop drinking completely to overcome addiction. In order for nutritional supplements to be effective, treatment of malabsorption requires a complete avoidance of alcohol.
