Do you have addictions to alcohol, drugs, eating, gambling, shopping, sex/love, co-dependency, etc.?
Been to 12 step programs, counseling, took various meds but still relapsing? There may be an answer!
On Nov 17, 2014 at 8 pm (Eastern) Dr. Jess Armine will discuss addiction and relapse and the common neuro-physiological basis for addictive behavior as well as the genetic polymorphisms that lead to relapse. He will discuss how consistent cravings, "JONESING", or "white knuckling" are what lead up to relapse. Until now, The Build Up To Relapse has been treated predominantly with psychosocial modalities. The physiological causations are downplayed or remain un-attended. Based on the research of Kenneth Blum, PhD & Bill Downs PhD, these physiological and genetic imbalances are key causes of the cravings that build to relapse. Genetic pioneers like Sterling Hill, Dr Ben Lynch, Shawn Bean, Cynthia Smith and Dr. Jess Armine have furthered the genetic/epigenetic portion of this research
This week Dr. Armine discusses the physiology of all types of addictions, the genetic contributions, and the new non-drug methods of addiction treatment NAAAT (NeuroAdaptive Amino Acid Therapy) and how combined psychological and physiological treatment gives the best prognosis for long term recovery.
READ THIS PLEASE!!!: Guys, I am a great supporter of the 12 Step Programs and other forms of conseling. NAAAT is to treat the physiological "part" of addictions and is best utilized IN ADDITION TO, NOT INSTEAD OF the 12 Step Programs, etc.
Join Us and Learn! There will be a .pdf and time for Q&A. See you then!!
