Kicking Addiction

Addiction in one form or another affects millions of people in this country. Scientists are now beginning to understand why some people fall so easily in using addictive substances while others can literally take or leave them. If you have ever been addicted to drugs, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, sugar or other foods, you know how difficult it may be to give it up.

The word "addiction" is usually used to describe cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. But the term can also be used to describe certain behaviors. For example … gambling or sex. People can also add food.

Many people who do not have a drug or alcohol or smoking addiction could not be so quick to accept the idea that they are fond of caffeine, sugar or carbohydrates. According to the Burton Goldberg Group's "Alternative Medicine" book, addiction can be defined as a physical or psychological dependence that adversely affects one's life. Reasons for food are not as powerful as drugs, alcohol or other addictive substances. But if we find that some food starts to control our behavior (desire) or if we experience physical or emotional discomfort if we do not have food, we are probably impressed. The easiest way to tell if you have addiction to food is to give it up, cold turkey a week. If you're addicted, your longing for it will be very strong.

It's a neurotransmitter in the brain called dopamine which is a common thread in all kinds of addictive behavior. Dopamine with seratonin is one of the neurotransmitters in the brain that affects our mood. Seratonin gives us a sense of pleasure and feeling that everything is OK (Prozac is an antidepressant that is seratonin stimulant). Dopamine makes us not only persistent, it also participates in emotions of pleasure and elation. Some scientists believe that dopamine is a lack of people easily affected. Addictive substances such as caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and other drugs increase dopamine concentration in the brain.

It's a theory that basically states that if dopamine is an imbalance or deficiency, you will be at greater risk for addictive behavior. Several addictive substances (heroin, amphetamine, cocaine, marijuana), all contributing to the amount of dopamine in the brain, are used by a safe small number of people and three others (alcohol, nicotine and caffeine) are used by over 100 million people each month.

If the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain is and enough seratonin and dopamine are produced, one is not likely to become addicted. So, something that interferes with the balance of neurotransmitters can cause or maintain addictive behaviors. Both sugar and caffeine can interfere with the proper metabolism of tryptophan (predominantly seratonin) and may cause depression and neuropathy by inhibiting the production of neurotransmitters. Sugar and caffeine are two addictive substances that can increase or maintain addiction to other substances. For this reason, many anti-drug programs ensure that customers provide sugar and caffeine.

We should explain that we are not just talking about coffee. Black tea, coal, soda, chocolate, cocoa and analgesics, such as excedrin and stimulants, such as Vivarine, are all high in caffeine. Too much caffeine in liver function, restrict blood flow in arteries, cause high blood pressure, rob the body of minerals that lead to bone loss, adrenal gland and a hormonal imbalance that can lead to breast cancer and uterine uterine. There have been PMS, bladder infections, hypoglycaemia and diabetes.

Scientists believe that one cup of coffee a day (about 100 mg of caffeine) is probably not a problem for most people.

How to Kick Caffeine and Take Care of It:

– If you drink more than one caffeine drink a day – move to one. Scientists have found that one day will satisfy the caffeine need and prevent withdrawal symptoms like headache.

– Then extract caffeine by 50% each week. If the coffee is coffee, drink half-decaffeinated and semi-regular – next week drink 3/4 decaffeinated and 1/4 normally.

– Then switch to ginseng tea, which will support energy without focusing on the adrenal glands.

According to the National Coffee Association, 130 million people drank coffee last month. This would definitely put coffee on the addictive factors used in this country. But there is one ingredient that even tops caffeine. The average American eats 52 teaspoons of sugar a day. It's almost 140 pounds of sugar a year. Is there any doubt that sugar is addictive?

Alcohol and sugar are chemically identical. All substances that deteriorate blood sugar levels are either addictive or aggravated by other addictions. Excess sugar we eat Americans every day keeps our edema and pancreas in a stable state of shock. These two organisms, together with the liver, are responsible for managing healthy blood sugar. Excess sugar produces very unclear blood sugar and very unstable energy levels. Our brain is highly dependent on blood sugar and uses up to half of the blood sugar in our body. If our blood sugar collapses, the brain will feel a bit and we will feel late, spacious, tired, depressed and annoying. Our instinct is going to consume more sugar, which is the worst thing we can do. This desire we have for something sweet is addiction to sugar. Like all addictive substances, continue to make it a bit worse. Because sugar destroys the blood sugar factor of our body, it allows us to get more because we can no longer balance our sugar. We long for it all the time to relieve depression and low energy we believe. Key medical periods have reported diabetes mellitus in all of the following:

What is the best strategy for someone to kick the diabetes?

Like all addictive substances, it's best to avoid it completely, including table sugar, fruit juice, maple syrup, honey and any hidden sugar in foods (most in "ose" – maltose, dextrose). Gaining enough protein helps stabilize blood sugar. Eating protein for two or even three meals a day will take a bit of sugar threads. The protein sends a message to the liver to get rid of glycogen that keeps blood sugar levels.

Although protein will endure sugar cravings, it will eat white flour and other refined carbohydrates. For example, after a starchy meal like pasta, people will often require sugar. When we eat refined hydrocarbon products we can also eat sugar. There is no fiber to slow down the progress of carbohydrates in the blood. This interferes with blood sugar levels and puts us up for craving for candy.

Combined carbohydrates, such as whole grains, beans, jams, lentils and legumes, are those that nutritionists suggest to be good for you. If someone is trying to standardize blood sugar levels and balance neurotransmitters, the maximum percentage of total carbohydrates should be 70% of vegetables and fruits. Balance of hormone levels requires fewer carbohydrates (40%) and more protein (30%). Healthy fats, such as olive oil and nuts, seeds and avocados, help increase serotonin production, which gives us a sense of well-being and relaxation.

As food allergy can trigger desires and increased addictive behavior, elimination or dietary changes can help.

· Download diet: Remove all common allergies (flour, dairy, fruit, sugar, yeast, mushrooms, eggs, soy, coffee and cereals)

· Eat a diet in the cave (protein and vegetables with a few grains – quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth)

· After a few months, the body's challenge to one of the common allergy symptoms listed above in a few days to see if there is a problem.

· Turn your diet: Turn foods so that no possible allergic reaction is eaten more than once in 4 days

Because blood glucose is so important, blood sugar may be useful for kicking any addiction. The following are some aspects of hypoglycaemia:

· Small, often meals up to six to eight daily, instead of 2 to 3 large

· Small amounts of protein in each meal – can be animal or vegetable – nuts, seeds, sprouts, beans, beans, soya, tofu, avocado

· Protein calls for release of hormone glucagon which causes liver to release glycogen stores that keep low blood sugar [19659002] Medium amounts of complex carbohydrates, full of fresh vegetables and whole grain will help stabilize blood sugar levels

· Good digestive antibiotics taken with regular meals will help stabilize and control hypoglycaemia.

Another very important factor in kicking addiction is detoxification, both blood and liver. Cleansing of blood drugs is necessary because the medicine changes the brain's chemistry and continues to crave it. It can take one year to completely detoxify the blood of drugs. Because all addictive substances, including caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and sugar, change chemistry in the brain, they need to be cleansed from the body to get out of control. Liver cleansers and toxins are one of the best ways to reduce withdrawal symptoms and shorten recovery time. Finally, it's the liver that separates drugs, chemicals and toxins from the body. The better it is to work, the faster we get well. The liver also plays a major role in keeping the blood glucose-induced brain. Toxic, slow liver inhibits mental activity.

The following are some tips for help detoxifying the liver:

· Citrate water every morning – helps hepatic phase an old bile

· Fresh vegetable juice is very cleansing in the liver – 3 times a week.

· Milk thistle is proven to clear and support the liver

· Oftstraw, burdock root, echinacea, dandelion root and licorice root tea and tinctures help cleanse the blood.

It is also very important to support the adrenal glands. The following are suggestions for suppression of adrenal glands:

· Take adrenal gland

· Start the day with easily absorbed protein [19659002] · Vitamin C with bio-drugs helps to build a weak adrenal gland

· All vitamins, especially pantothenic support for kidney function

· Resists the motives for using stimulants (coffee, sugar, guarana, coconut) that all destroy fossil fuels, blood sugar instability and focus more on the adrenal glands

· Avoid sugar that destroys B- vitamins needed to activate the brain and the central nervous system. Low blood sugar leads to fatigue, depression, anxiety and mood swings that are going to exercise for any type of addictive substance much worse.

Herbs that may be useful for kicking bad eating habits or addiction are:

· Skullcap, valerian and vervain have calming or soothing properties and help with arrogance that one can find when they are addictive substance

· Siberian ginseng is a toning and body balance

· Superfood, such as blue algae, spirulina and chlorella can be very useful for cure cravings. They are nutrient-tight and loaded with trace elements and proteins that most drugs are missing. They also nourish the brain (help nerve peptide production) and contain chlorophyll, which is very cleansing.
