Read this book and you will embark on a groundbreaking seven-week journey that will change your life. You will learn how to break your addiction to alcohol and end your cravings–and do it under your own power. Here, step-by-step, is a proven, seven-week program developed by Dr. Joan Matthews Larson at the innovative Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, that subdues your body’s addictive chemistry and puts you on the path to full recovery.
In recent decades, many of those studying alcoholism have come to see it as a disease, rather than as a character flaw or a failure of will. And yet, alcoholism is most often treated through counseling. Joan Mathews Larson and her colleagues at the Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, discovered a series of nutritional deficiencies in alcoholics, and found that with proper dietary adjustments, they could help almost three-quarters of their patients kick the bottle for good.
This book gives a natural way of fighting alcoholism as opposed to using chemicals. It is a must read for people fighting the disease and for their families. It is an incredible approach to alcohol addictions with implications for other addictions and behaviors such as ADD, bipolar, etc. Dealing with the whole person is so important in these issues and Larson provides this long missing physical/nutritional component.
