Press release: Alcoholics are not weak-willed – their brain chemistry runs amok

Researchers now know that the psyche has had its day as an explanation for the urge to drink alcohol. If you can’t keep your hands off the glass, it’s mainly due to nerve messengers such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA or glutamate, which alcohol throws off track. The person affected feels permanently stressed, depressed or unmotivated – and reaches for the glass again and again because alcohol promises short-term improvement.

The addiction spiral is turning. This book explains for the first time in a medically precise but easy-to-understand way why quitting alcohol is so difficult. Brain chemistry runs amok, weakness of will is not.

As if that weren’t enough, alcohol robs the body of vital nutrients. The symptoms of nutrient deficiencies range from A for anxiety to Z for shakiness, but are often enough blamed on the psyche. Yet it would be so easy to close these gaps, thereby ensuring greater well-being and avoiding relapse. But alcoholics are expected to fight all this with sheer willpower. It’s no wonder that only about one in five drinkers manages to quit in the long term with the current treatment methods.

The authors have developed a nutrient plan that supported the successful alcohol cessation of Gaby Guzek – herself a sufferer. In the USA, some clinics have also been using nutrients in the treatment of alcoholics for some time. Their successes are far above average. Even the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill W., was only able to become abstinent with the help of nutrients.

Anyone who has read this book will come to understand the disease of alcoholism as a physical problem. Once you have understood this, you will have a great help in getting out. Tips and tricks also reveal how a dry life can be implemented in everyday life. The book is aimed at all those who drink too much, at dissatisfied dry people and relatives of alcoholics.
