Valuable nutritional information included in this slim book, written by a physician after she watched her son lose his life to alcoholism. Frustrated with the available treatments she has created a great support program for anyone struggling with the process of better health habits. She debunks the theory that it is a simple matter of weakness, and addresses the varieties of physical symptoms, allergies, and remedies to nourish the system, and nurture the spirit. Little shared information about how such chemicals as those inhaled by painters, or chemical compounds, shows the little known triggers which create imbalances beyond those of alcohol. The steady process of suggestions has made my body feel a tremendous benefit where I used to feel 'lost'. The message does not blame -- rather gives a lifeline to one who is looking for ways to make improvements and regain health. I highly recommend this book, and have benefitted from it.

The information in the book was the first time I ever heard chemical triggers suggested as one of the causes for addiction or relapse. The study of how to support the mind nutritionally made more sense than anything else I had read to support recovery. At a time, when I wondered if it had beneficial effects the nearly immediate benefits of the aminos and B's was something that would benefit anyone. I highly recommend implementing this and if the package of nutrients is a bit of a strain on the budget, take the lists to your local health food experts and begin with their recommendations, adding to the complete list as your budget allows. Your body and mind will thank you for it!

What a quack -- selling an "easy alternative" to genuine addiction recovery.  People have tried diets for thousands of years, diets simply cannot change the deeply rooted personality defects of the addict.   Until medical research comes up with an antidote or a vaccine, only a spiritual recovery or basic personality change can offer any hope of recovery.  Conveniently, diets and herbal remedies are legally exempt from DFA testing, allowing  nutrition and herbal quacks to make any claims they like.   Meanwhile, addicts and alcoholics on the verge of liver failure, desperately in need of drug and alcohol recovery can actually die because of bogus, "magic wand" solutions such as this.   I am a drug addict who has been clean, sober, and happy  for 15 years through Alcoholics Anonymous..
