Alcoholism - orthomolecular point of view

• Nearly 10% of adults suffer from alcohol addiction due to vitamin B-3 (Niacin) deficiency (http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2981).
Ortho Molecular research suggests that the body's metabolism of alcohol is believed to be decreased resulting in excess chemicals in the brain that ultimately result in addiction (http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/aa/alcoholism.php).
• Alcohol is essentially liquid sugar. Alcoholics have likely had an addiction to sugar developed in childhood that later develops into alcoholism.
• Metabolic defects of the body may lead to anxiety, tension and fatigue which as life progresses are self treated using alcohol.
• A customized prescribed dietary and nutritional supplement program is used by Ortho Molecular therapists to reduce or eliminate symptoms of alcohol dependency.
• Many modern diets are high in calories and low in nutrients. An alcoholic is in search of these essential nutrients missing from the diet and replaces them via alcohol.
Balancing health and brain chemistry is believed to reduce the likelihood of relapse for alcoholics.
