    NATURAL TREATMENTS

    Cure for alcoholism, anxiety & depression, Joan Mathews Larson - 2 of 3 - Talk Therapy Doesn’t Work

    Drug and alcohol problems are the result of biochemical glitches. They are not caused by a lack of will power and cannot be solved with talk therapy. Prescription drugs such as Prozac cannot correct these problems either. I believe the exact same thing is true for anxiety and depression.

    In this audio clip, you will hear Dr. Julian Whitaker describe the research of American biochemist, Dr. Roger Williams.

    He found that "alcoholic" rats could be cured of their desire for alcohol with large doses of nutrients.

    You will then hear Dr. Whitaker interview Joan Mathews Larson, PhD whose son committed suicide about 30 years ago after returning from talk therapy.

    Dr. Larson committed her life to finding a better way, and came across the research of Dr. Roger Williams.

    SKINNY ON OBESITY VIDEO SERIES

    When you add sugar to processed food, you kill it, and it’s killing us says Robert Lustig MD

    SKINNY ON OBESITY VIDEO SERIES

    Fructose is a chronic, dose-dependent, liver toxin just like alcohol notes Robert Lustig MD

    "Alcohol is metabolized to fat, and so is fructose, driving more liver fat then it can export, you get more insulin resistance, which drives the pancreas to make extra insulin, driving energy deposition into fat cells [increasing body fat], driving your weight gain, and the extra insulin is driving high blood pressure, driving heart disease, driving cell division which leads to cancer, driving changes in the brain that lead to dementia. Driving every single one of these diseases," notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in a 7-part video series called "The Skinny on Obesity" (Episode 2).

    "When the pancreas can't make enough insulin, and it burns out, it drives diabetes as well."

    BOOK - MALIGNANT MEDICAL MYTHS

    No proof that red wine reduces the risk of death notes Joel Kauffman, PhD

    "[N]o long-term trials exist on the effect of red wine specifically on all-cause mortality [that is, that red wine reduces the risk of death]" writes Joel M. Kauffman, PhD, the author of Malignant Medical Myths: Why Medical Treatment Causes 200,000 Deaths in the USA each Year, and How to Protect Yourself.

    One to three alcoholic drinks per day has a slight protective effect against cardiovascular disease, but this does not extend to other causes of death Kauffman notes. Read the entire article | Email this article

    DRUG AND ALCOHOL PROBLEMS

    74% of alcoholics sober & stable after 3.5 years with nutritional therapy, Joan Mathews Larson PhD

    Seventy-four percent (74%) of alcoholics were found to be sober and emotionally stable 3.5 years after going through the Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA founded by Joan Mathews Larson PhD who treats drug and alcohol problems as well as anxiety and depression with a nutritional approach.

    This compares to about a 5% success with "Talk Therapy" based programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

    She opened the Center in 1980 after her son had committed suicide in the 1970's after returning home from a hospital-based "Talk Therapy" program. She thought there must be a better way.

    Her treatments are all based on scientific research.

    I am posting this because in the past few weeks, US actor Charlie Sheen, star of the Number 1 show on television, "Two an One-Half Men", who has had a problem with drugs and alcohol, has been all over television.

    Addiction specialist, Drew Pinsky, MD -- "Dr. Drew" -- the doctor on the US television program "Celebrity Rehab", has also been on several television shows saying that Charlie Sheen needs to go into rehab -- a Talk Therapy-based rehabilitation.

    I disagree. As Joan Mathews Larson, PhD notes, addiction problems are the result of biochemical glitches.

    Biochemical glitches cannot be "talked away". They cannot be solved with Talk Therapy.

    Hopefully someone will tell Dr. Drew and Charlie Sheen about Joan Mathews Larson, PhD and her very successful treatment for drug and alcohol problems.

    There needs to be a paradigm shift in the treatment of addiction problems, away from Talk Therapy, and to where it is recognize it as biochemical problem that requires nutritional therapies to solve. Read the entire article | Email this article
