5 Alcoholism Remedies and Alternative Treatments

Sep 20, 2016

While some may attest that alcoholism has no valid link to natural medicine, or medicine of any form for that matter, alcoholism is considered a chronic disease. So, treating it as a disease makes sense. Natural medicine takes into consideration that an individual’s nutritional deficiencies may well be affecting behavior and aims to balance those issues to incur wellness. With that, natural remedies are among the most effective options to treat illnesses such as alcoholism.

What Factors Contribute to Alcoholism?

Research in recent years has identified the genetic roots of alcoholism as it is associated with specific psychological and spiritual imbalances. The condition is also considered a metabolic disease similar to that of diabetes. That being said, a number of factors are connected to the condition including blood sugar problems, and nutritional deficiencies.

Are There Any Natural Treatment Options?

As alcoholism has nutritional connections, the disease can be treated rather effectively using natural remedies. The types of treatment vary and actually are widely diverse as far as efficacy; however, most individuals respond better to natural treatment than any other form.

1. Vitamin B12

An important B-complex vitamin, B12 helps regulate the function of the liver. Restoring normal function of the liver can help ease alcohol cravings.

2. Vitamin C

The entire body, but particularly the brain, requires high levels of vitamin C. This nutrient helps mediate the activity of the opiate receptors in the brain, which helps reduce an individual’s interest in drugs and alcohol.

3. Amino Acids

Amino acids, specifically l-glutamine, are responsible for regulating a number of processes in the body. L-glutamine, in particular, helps stabilize the mood, which can help break the addiction cycle.

4. Acupuncture

A form of ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture accesses specific pressure points to release endorphins, relieve pain and anxiety in the body, and stimulate wellness. As such, this form of treatment is also effective for curing alcohol addiction.

5. Exercise

Exercise is another important daily practice for managing alcoholism. Not only does exercise provide a release for stress and an opportunity to engage in an additional activity, it also helps boost the endorphins in the body. Endorphins help improve the mood and decrease an individual’s reliance on drugs to achieve the same result.

A balanced approach to alcohol recovery is the best option. Pairing these treatments with an established recovery program will help you or your loved one regain control over life and health.

Alcoholism: Changed my body chemistry and followed an anti-yeast diet.. Since I have elimanted yeast, sugar all processed foods, I no longer have the cravings to drink alcohol. I have been on this diet now for 3 years..my family is so proud of me.I don't fight the urge anymore and is the most Wonderful feeling. I almost use to faint going by the beer & wine section in the grocery store. My husband has been able to have a full bar in our house for the first time in 25 years and I don't think about drinking anymore. I forget it is even in the house. At first it is hard to retrain your eating habits but it can be done. I have Candida Albicans, and cleaning out all of your insides can take years. I have done 15 Liver flushes and have removed liver flukes and thousands of stones.. Got this info from Dr. Hulda Clark.. I drank for more than 20 years, and I can tell you how happy I am to know that the food I was eating was the cause of my addiction and just stopping the food with chemicals from going into my body has saved my life!

Hi there, I have a problem with my husband's drinking. He says that he doesnt drink alot, just the occasional beer or glass of wine with friends but I believe it is more than that. I still want him to quit, since I think it is affecting his physical health (liver) and his mental health (he forgets alot).

Note that he doesnt want to quit and doesnt know that I want him to. Would apple cider vinegar help in this case? If so, how can I use it without him knowing?

True story.. My neighbor was a Alcoholic, every afternoon he would come over for a drink. One day I ran out of his favorite whiskey.. I put two Jiggers of Apple Cider Vinegar in the glass with orange juice and ice cubes.. I mixed it the same way I would mix it if I had used whiskey.. We sat down as we had done for months.. he drank his drink and did not say a word.. We did for 10 days.. no comment from Ken.. T hen told him I substituted Apple Cider Vinegar for the Whiskey.. He did not beleive me..He said it tasted the same. Now NO More Whiskey.. He switched to Apple Cider Vinegar.

Actually, the 'story' this guy told about his 'neighbor' may have been initially true but it is one of those circulating urban tales. I won't say it's an urban 'myth' but I have read almost identical stories on the web many times before with slight changes, ie: My neighbor was a pilot that had to quit drinking and used to drop by for a drink after work so one day gave have him ACV instead without him knowing and he didn't notice and was amazed when I told him what it was ... etc, etc, .

That said, I think ACV does work but people should just tell real stories and not resort to these sort of chain-letter email lies.

Worked Temporarily

You know, actually... when I stopped drinking beer, the first time, I substituted with ACV and baking soda... fizzy and it actually tasted a bit like beer to me and became my new ritual. Lasted a little more than a month, but like smoking, I gave myself permission to have a beer after work and it became my once again newer ritual.

However, about to start drinking ACV and baking soda again. ;)

If you take some gold into the body, anytime you drink alcohol, it will make you sick. One way to do this is: Chloride of Gold Solution be taken internally - Begin with one drop in half a glass of water (the solution being in the proportions of one drop to one ounce of distilled water), every day for five days. Then take two drops every day for five days, then three drops every day for five days, then four drops every day for five days. Then leave off for five days. Then begin with the one drop again, and so on. Also, some people have great results with Castor Oil packs. To find chloride of gold just Google it. If you try alcohol during this time, it will make you feel nauseated and it might even make you vomit.

Warning

I beg you, for your sake... Do not do this!

Chloride or ionic gold is neuro toxin, it can do severe damage to your nervous system. It may eventually lead to Peripheral Neuropathy; where your skin will itch and feel like its burning, leading to permernant numbness.

There are some commercial products that will, upon alcohol consumption induce nausea and vomiting, also some strong antibiotics ( which ones I can't remember) will also produce a simmilar effect.

Alcohol dependency is often a symptom of depression or boredom, try st johns wort and go outside or read.

Few people know that alcohol and fructose use the same pathways in the liver. So, when you drink, do not drink pop, soda or any other product with High Fructose Corn Syrup in it that same day. Drink only very dry wine, as a sugar addiction coupled with an alcohol addiction makes it twice as bad and hard to break.

When trying to quit, do not let yourself get hungry, but avoid high carb snacks. Nuts, veggies with dips, moderate fruit all work. Shiritake noodles (yam based) work great with any soup, stew or sauce you like to satisfy appetite and fill you up with low carbs.

Alcohol depletes vitamin B1. It is water soluble and easily drained from your system. To fight back, buy the fat soluble form, called Benfotiamine, and use as a suplement. In short, you will lessen metabolic damage. Hopefully, this will mean it becomes easier to quit as the side effects of quitting are less.

Likewise, vitamin C is depleted. Same story, top up vitamin C as soon as possible.

Repair liver stress with silymarin and NAC (n-acytlcysteine).

Some people find niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) lessens cravings. | do not confuse with niacin (also B3), as niacin causes flushing.

Hi to C1265, well done giving up the alcohol. Google delirium tremons and you will find a lot of information about alcohol withdrawal, most people think that the dt's are a hangover but they are a lot more serious than that. You will find some extra information and I would try to find a forum where ex drinkers are discussing their symptons and what they did to relieve them. I do know that juice is quite helpful in restoring the sugar in your body that the withdrawals deplete. Hope the best for you. Lily.

It is not well known, but in addition to b vitamins, the body is also depleted of minerals, specifically magnesium and potassium. The muscle tightening sensation is a lack of magnesium, and potassium also helps with muscle cramps and nervous issues. This is why the apple cider vinegar works in providing those trace minerals, but you can take a 100 mg of magnesium, and a 100 mg potassium. We are all different, so some need more magnesium and potassium to get fast results. It works better taking them separately, than having them combined in one tablet.


Posted by Rich (Boca Raton, Fl) on 01/13/2009

For border-line alcoholics(5-6 beers per day), you can set rules like: no drinking before lunch. If you have kids, a rule like no drinking before the kids go to sleep might help.

Once those rules are in place, you can set a limit like 4 beers. When you get used to that, decrease to 3. At that point, change to a cheat day like 1 day per week. Alcohol steals your time, but it is possible for some to wean off of.

If beer is your alcohol of choice, and you're quitting, beer is high in b-vitamins, so a b-complex may be helpful. Unclear.

Since Ted mentioned liver damage, it would seem that this may be reversible. My chemistry isn't very good, but I see Phenyl and Sulfur, two anti-fungals in this Drug, so the closest natural remedy might be turmeric (which has both).

Over the past weeks I have been looking over the use of hydrogen peroxide to stop alcohol addiction and drug abuse addiction. The remedy is a straightforward one, a 3% H2O2 food grade one capful is added into an ordinary drinking water. Use this as a normal drinking water. If a person happens to be drinking wine, beer, liquor, the body will immediately reject it and tries to detoxify it, causing nausea, or vomiting when they take it. The body may also reject certain drug meds, such as birth control pills, cocaine, for example in a few cases. So if the drinking water with hydrogen peroxide is taken at one glass is taken within one hour, the effects is even more stronger and will encourage people to quit the alcohol use.

My son was drinking 4 to 5 thirty pks of beer a week! He was driving me and everyone else around him crazy, and he did not want to quit saying it was his life, so I had to trick him :) He had acid reflux so I gave him 2 tbls of Apple Cider Vinegar morning and evening. He also said he needed more energy so I had him use Bill Munro's method of inhaling 3% hydrogen peroxide 4 to 6 times a day. I noticed he was drinking a lot less after 2 weeks so to speed things up I bet him $20.00 he could not go 1 week without drinking. Not only did he win the bet that was 2 months ago and he still has not had a beer. Thanks Ted and Thank God for helping me find Earth Clinic.

Hi Ted from Bangkok, I have used Earth Clinic to research on many ailment and this is a gold mine, so 1st, thank you for putting it up!! Second, I am trying to cut back on alcohol intake before it is a problem. I drink about 1/2 bottle of wine per night and I have a hard time to skip a day. But I truly want to try (again) :) So yesterday, I looked to see if you had any idea about it and here you are, Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide.

I am starting today, very slowly. I had 3% FGHP on hand, so I will use that. I don't really want to deal with 35% technicality about the handling and online ordering.

I went with 3 drops of the 3% in a full glass of spring water. The water stayed clear, no bubbles, so as per the technique I should be good to go.

I feel compelled to write the brand, just because there is so much confusion and hype on which kind to use. Feel free to delete it if you don't agree. Essential Oxygen is the one I used from my health food store.

I ate a peanut butter toast at 10h and drank the water w/hp at 12h. So far, I felt a little dizzy and my toes tingles after about 5 minutes of my first sip. The tingle went away after about 20 minutes. I am still a little lightheaded after an hour, not like a glass of wine though, more like if I would be really hungry... (which I am not). I will try to eat an organic mix salad in 1/2 hour and see how it goes. I will keep posting here as I think so many people are frightened by everything surrounding the use of HP.

I will also use another glass 1 hour before diner...

If this works as I think it will, Ted from Bangkok, I will be forever grateful!! ( I already am but I have tried so many things to get rid of this problem: acupuncture, EFT, The vitamin cure, all the books I could find on the subject, regular psychological therapy, amino acid, diet, avoiding sugar, muscle testing, kinesiology, hypoglycemic therapy. I discovered alcohol at 11, so it is at cellular level.

So sorry about my mistake, Dear Deirdre Layne, thank you so much for this valuable website and the idea to have it brand free for objectivity sake, it is brilliant.

For some reason I always tumble across Ted's posts and they helped me so much, so I just assumed.

Follow up on the FGHP, everything went fine with the salad with chickpeas I ate at 1:30h. No nausea at all. I am pretty much vegetarian, so I read it was better not to eat meat, (perhaps not at the beginning anyway).

What I noticed in the afternoon up to 11h last night: Quite a bit of bowel movement without being loose. I am used to diarrhea (sorry for graphic description) because of the alcohol, but this felt definitely more like a cleansing, without cramps.

I also noticed I had to blow my nose a few times this morning and last night.

After my 3 drops FGHP this morning in 8 oz of tap water, still clear, without bubble. (We drink tap water on the top of my hill) This time my hands feel a bit numb almost 3 hours later. I am also still lightheaded. Not enough to prevent me to do anything but just enough for notice.

I am amazed by what 9 drops of 3% FGHP can do. I will also stick with 3 drops until the effects cleared out a little. I can't afford to get sick right now so I am glad I tried the 3% instead of 35%.

I will keep posting if there is any changes...

Most "alcoholics" don't realize their addiction is chemical and a direct result of being "hypoglycemic". The addiction to the alcohol is so strong because their blood-sugar level drops so severely and gets replenished so quickly with alcohol--because of the high sugar content. In other words, it's not your fault! This is the answer, if you are trying to cut back on your alcohol intake or go "cold turkey", just buy a bottle of "L- Glutamine" and take one every time you have a craving for alcohol. "Glutamine is an amino acid that your brain can use as an emergency substitute fuel when you haven't eaten recently or have been eating too many carbs and your blood sugar level is too low. This is a glucose stand-in that stops the impulse to run to the candy machine when it's low blood sugar time. L-Glutamine can stop your cravings and get you feeling steady and even within ten minutes." Julia Ross, from The Mood Cure-awesome book. I'm telling you, it works, now go help yourself!

Naltrexone  

Posted by Rsw (Uniontown, Oh) on 04/21/2015

In response to Jeanna's post on treating alcohol addiction:

A very effective way to reduce one's craving for alcohol is by taking a 50mg tablet of naltrexone one hour before having a drink. This is called the Sinclair Method. It works because naltrexone blocks the endorphin release from drinking alcohol or taking drugs, and as the user becomes accustomed to no "high" from drinking, the desire for alcohol is lessened or goes away. Here is the site to learn more:

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinclair_Method

There are many other sites and Facebook pages as well. There is also a book that details this process. Unlike low dose naltrexone, which most people on Earth Clinic know I advocate for a variety of illnesses and is sometimes difficult to get a doctor to prescribe, 50mg Naltrexone is an FDA approved drug and should be easy to get a prescription to use as this is what it was originally approved to do. It is inexpensive and easily taken by tablet before drinking to reduce the desire for alcohol, very effective and does not require the user to stop drinking to utilize it. Best wishes.

Hi Rsw Uniontown, Oh,

I just found out from reading that if one has been taking Naltrexone and then gets off that there is an increase of drinking alcohol that can lead to overdose and death. I also read that vitamin C in high doses can do the same thing that Naltrexone does without the side effects. One must start out with 1 gram per hour then increase to 2 grams per hour and then 3 grams per hour etc. until you have to run to the bathroom in a hurry then back down. Alcoholics can take a much higher doses than healthy people. Of course one must buy pure powder of vitamin C and mix with water. Pure Ascorbic acid is very sour so one might try Sodium Ascorbate powder. Buy small amounts at first to see what you like then buy it by the pound. Sweeten with stevia and erythritol. Pure Niacin powder is next and one needs to work up to 500 mg then on up to 1500 mg per day then move to twice a day over time. Niacin flushes will last until 2 weeks are over so one needs to stay with it. I am still reading on this. I may do a separate post as the cure is quite comprehensive.

Hi Wydo,

This article says that the naltrexone will have to be taken before drinking alcohol for the rest of one's life, although 25% decide to give up alcohol completely.

Naltrexone is an out of patent FDA approved drug and is not expensive. I am unfamiliar with the B3 approach, but if it works, then who can argue with success? Low carb seems to be a beneficial way of eating for many conditions, and alcohol often contains high levels of sugar, so a low carb diet to reduce sugar cravings would make sense. Best wishes.

Hello all,

There is a wonderful South African herb called Scletium Tortuosum. Scetium is an adaptogenic herb, treats anxiety, depression and addiction. I have used it many times, and it has greatly helped me. I quit smoking with this. I have recommended it to many people, who have also been helped from depression. My friend, who was abusing alcohol, took this and stopped drinking for a period. I cannot recommend it enough. You take 1 in the morning, and if it can help you, you will notice an effect in about 10 days. It basically balances you out, and you stop having those needs to go from one extreme to another. I used it for depression as well. Extremely helpful. When I didn't feel like taking it any more, I just naturally stopped.

I took the 50 mg. kind, as recommended by my healthcare provider, who happened to be from South Africa, thus knew about this remarkable herb. It costs $18. a bottle, a 2 month supply.

Finding a replacement beverage was a major key to giving up drinking for me. I drank a bottle of wine every day for many years and just stopped 2 months ago.

It's about that ritual and ceremony and feeling like drinking wine makes the end of the day special.

I started drinking "switchel" and I think not only does it allow me the ritual that I enjoy, there is something about the ACV that satisfies the same alcohol craving. There are some commercial switchels but they are too sweet for me (maybe try them but cut with water?).

With my juicer I juice a concentrate of ginger, tumeric, pineapple, rhubarb and mint. (these are just flavors I like, most switchel bases are just ginger and maple syrup). I put this in a glass bottle with a cork, that feeling of uncorking and pouring is satisfying! Each time I want a drink I pour about 1-2 ounces of the concentrate in a glass, add 2 teaspoons of ACV, and fill the rest with water.

When I started drinking this 2 months ago I wasn't trying to give up alcohol, I was just doing a 2 week raw diet that didn't include alcohol. But 2 months later I've kept drinking/craving the switchel daily and haven't started drinking wine daily again.

Good luck!
