Alcoholism

Understanding
 
Liver cirrhosis is an abnormal methionine metabolism.  The enzyme methionine adenosyltransferase seems to fail to convert methionine in the presence of ATP to SAMe, the main biological methyl donor. 11/02 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition www.ajcn.org
 
 

Alternative Medicine

 
Alcoholism can cause loss of brain taurine activity.  Taurine is best supplemented as NAC, B6, and zinc. Shark & abalone contain taurine, an amino acid.  Take PM.

Benfotiamine (altered vitamin B1 or fat-soluble thiamine) may help prevent aging effects in alcoholics per 2/2005 & 12/2011 http://www.lef.org/magazine/
 
Betaine, an amino acid from raw red beet roots, may be helpful in autism and Down's syndrome. It stimulates the production of SAM-e (S-adenosl-methionine)  Sam-e is converted in the liver into glutathione to assist in liver detoxification (and thus is good for alcoholics).  It supports methylation (process of exchanging a hydrogen atom (H) for a methyl group (DH3).  It helps reduce homocysteine and thus may help in cardiovascular disease.  It can boost the body hormones such as dopamine and serotonin, and may be an extremely good anti-depressant.  2/20-26/2006 www.epochtimes.com  (Take after 3PM.) http://www.umm.edu/altmed/consupplements/betainecs.html   http://www.raysahelian.com/betaine.html  http://www.rawveg.info/beets.html
 
Glutamine suppresses brain messages that  cause sugar (alcohol) craving.  Isoleucine gets rid of excess leucine which spills vitamin B3 into the urine.  Liver cirrhosis is remediated with methionine (SAMe) + taurine.  Take PM. Other helpful evening supplements are glycine, tryptophan (5htp), phenylalanine, carnitine, zinc, selenium, aspartic acid, vitamin B12 & C per Erdmann's The Amino Revolution. www.amazon.com

DETOX - Drug Overdose

 
Dr. Alfred F. Libby, 520 West 17th Street, Santa Ana, California
http://www.seanet.com/~alexs/ascorbate/197x/libby-af-orthomol_psych-1977-v6-n4-p300.htm
"There may have been a great need to concentrate and obtain high levels of ascorbate at synapses to aid in efficient, nerve impulse transmission...If this hypothesis is valid, then the receptor sites should be renamed “ascorbate receptors” instead of “opiate receptors.”  Replacing opiates with vitamin C seems to do the detox trick.  "Sodium ascorbate can be obtained both as the pure crystalline powder and as 1 g tablets. The crystalline powder is very soluble in water, milk, and foods, is essentially tasteless, and a level teaspoon weighs about 3 g. A solution has a pH of slightly over 7. Ascorbic acid, while also quite soluble in water has a very sour taste and is limited in the number of foods to which it may be added because of this sour taste. It has a pH of about 3 and will curdle milk if added thereto. Sodium ascorbate is the preferred substance for the megadosages."  Especially at the beginning of therapy, sodium ascorbate is often preferred over ascorbic acid, because "the presence of high levels of sodium helps dislodge the narcotic from the receptor sites."
http://www.whale.to/v/kalokerinos2.html   Orthomolecular Treatment of Drug Overdose   Brain Receptor Sites
"As previously noted, ascorbate is a general detoxicant for many different poisons, but its mode of action is mostly unknown. Klenner (1974) points out, 'Ascorbic acid can be livesaving in shock. Twelve grams of the sodium salt given with a 50 cc syringe will reverse shock in minutes. In barbiturate poisoning and monoxide poisoning, the results are so dramatic that it borders on malpractice to deny this therapy.' The detoxicating effect of sodium ascorbate on narcotics appears to be so rapid that this very rapidity seems to preclude a mechanism involving direct chemical attack on the narcotic molecule to convert it into some inactive derivative. Also it works on so many different types of narcotic molecules. A more compatible hypothesis would be to view the action as a competition for opiate receptor sites of the brain wherein high levels of sodium ascorbate in the brain prevent the attachment and displace narcotic molecules already attached to these sites."
"Unconscious overdosed addicts are given the sodium ascorbate intravenously, 30 to 50 g while those able to swallow can be given the same quantity dissolved in a glass of milk. This antidote is non specific and works on all drugs, so no time need be wasted in identifying the drug. We speculate on ascorbate's action as due to the high levels of sodium ascorbate in the brain as competing lot and displacing the narcotic from the opiate receptor sites. If this be the case, then it might be possible to use this phenomenon postoperatively on surgical patients to quickly bring them out of anaesthesia."
"In the initial phases of the procedure, sodium ascorbate is administered at 25 to 85 g per day or more, along with high doses of multivitamins, essential minerals, and protein hydro-lysate (a predigested collagen amino acids). Under this treatment, the heroin or methadone is stopped and no withdrawal symptoms are encountered.
As a rough rule-of-thumb means of judging dosage: a $50 a day habit needs 25 to 40 g sodium ascorbate, $ 150-200/day about 60-70 g."
"After about 6 days, the dosages are gradually reduced to holding dose levels (about 10 grams sodium ascorbate a day) and the ex-addict is now ready for rehabilitation or psychotherapy programs."
 

Conventional HEALING

 
100% of all alcoholics have a deficiency in a liver enzyme "acetaldehyde dehydrogenase", and most are deficient in "adenylate cyclase"  and "monoamine oxidase" per Hampsch in Healing Your Family Tree. www.claretiantapeministry.org   hampschctm@aol.com
Fricks, Larry of Cleveland, Georgia, USA - Testimony is in chapter 6 of Richard M Cohen's Strong at the Broken Places book.  He has (had) a dual diagnosis (alcohol addiction + bipolar). (Typically patients self-medicate with alcohol.) With medication plus monitoring by self and mate, he is living with purpose and zeal. http://www.strongatthebrokenplaces.com/citizens/meet.html#fricks  
One may want to check out Cohen's MP3 radio archives at http://www.strongatthebrokenplaces.com/theauthor/other.html
or listen Sundays 6:05-7:00 PM at 77AM radio or online at wabcradio.com
Chapter 6 gives good insight into the medical establishment's attempted theft of the soul/mind/emotions/personality/identity of patients, by it's divorcing the spiritual part of humanity and calling spiritual encounters lies/imaginations/delusions/insanity.  The human is 3 parts - mind + body + spirit.  Spiritual encounters can be heavenly or demonic; nonetheless they are typically real and not imaginary.  Most tribes would verify this.  Modern medicine is violating it's oath to do NO harm.

"I prayed for 20 years that an alcoholic friend would lose his taste for alcohol...Nothing happened. 
Then I began to pray, binding and loosing...within a few weeks, this man declared that alcohol didn't taste good anymore...I then realized that for 20 years I had prayed against a symptom - the taste for alcohol.  Nothing 'happened' until I began binding this man's will to God's will and loosing the strongholds protecting the source or reason that he drank...You do not have to name the symptoms or identify specific sources in your binding and loosing prayers."  www.libertysavard.com
