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
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

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.
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.
