Alcohol Rehab

Alcoholism is a biological and chemical illness that has become major, ongoing, persistent and it can be critical. The theory about alcoholism is that problems with drinking alcohol are indicated by changes of the brain function and the brain structure.

The determination of alcoholism is the results of how drinking has affected your life or the outcome and consequences of drinking alcohol that will explain and establish if alcoholism is present. Alcoholism is not defined by what kind of alcohol you are drinking, how much alcohol you are drinking or when you are drinking.

If your alcohol consumption is causing problems in your life, home, or relationships, then a problem with drinking is present and would be considered to be alcoholism. It is not based on whether you drink daily or only on the weekends, beer, wine or whiskey, one glass or three bottles.

Brain Damage and Other Effects from Alcohol

Alcoholism is a chemical imbalance due to changes in the brain structure and function and is considered a disorder that will get worse without treatment. It can destroy the physical, mental and emotional health of a person and can lead to death.

The symptom of the effects of alcoholism can be headaches, muscle weakness, ulcers, staggering, slurred speech, blurry vision, nausea, stomach distress, changes to the function of the liver, and decreased activity in the brain.

Alcoholism can maximize the threat of depressive disorders, committing suicide and can lead to violent criminal activities, such as murders, domestic violence, legal problems, social engagements issues, education troubles, problems at work and isolation from friends and family. It can cause serious and fatal motor vehicle accidents.

Neurotransmitter Replacement Therapy

Alcohol Rehab is designed to improve, enrich, and reestablish efficient capabilities in a person's well-being and to provide a good quality of life. A variety of solutions is obtainable to enable you to heal and recover from alcoholism, such as nutrition, exercising, light therapy, counseling, and support groups.

The first step of the alcohol rehab program will be the detoxification process. There are home remedies that help in removing toxins from the body, regaining proper neurotransmitter replacement levels, and curbing the craving for alcohol.

Four Most Common Neurotransmitters

Having your urine tested will show the levels of neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain and body chemistry. This test will be able to tell what is causing any health issues. Keeping a well-balanced natural chemical neurotransmitter amounts is important in order to maintain good health. With the correct level of the natural chemical in the body, you'll feel less anxious, develop a better mood, have extra energy, have better sleep and have a healthier life.

By purposely increasing the correct level of neurotransmitter chemicals, normal mind and body performance can also increase to a normal level.

There are four most common neurotransmitters within the brain that is particularly important for correct brain and body performance.





These are natural chemicals neurotransmitters that provide feelings of happiness, feeling content and provide a feeling of well-being.

Diet & Nutrition : How to Increase Serotonin With Foods & Vitamins


The natural chemical neurotransmitters are used in the brain to signal to the body organs. If the body is out of balance it will cause many negative symptoms. Millions of people today are walking around with some type of natural chemical neurotransmitter shortage. It is estimated that 85 percent of Americans neurotransmitter levels are substandard minimal. Ways for the neurotransmitter levels to be reduced can be due to stress, poor diet, recreational and prescription drugs, caffeine, genetic type, and alcohol.

Serotonin is known as the happy natural chemical. It is the primary chemical that leads to feeling happy, relaxed, peaceful, optimism, controlling appetite, and feeling content. It is designed to regulate memory, learning, aging, mood and behavior. It blocks against depression and anxiety. If there is an imbalance with the serotonin levels this can result in a large range of mood and emotional disorders.

Serotonin comes from an amino acid called tryptophan that is created in the brain and body. Not having enough of the amino acid tryptophan can lead to depression. When the tryptophan levels are high in the brain, this will create an increase in the serotonin levels.

The Greatest Danger To Our Future Is Apathy


Dopamine & Norepinephrine

Dopamine is a main and important neurotransmitter. It is known to be the feel good natural chemical. It affects the brain processes that regulate movements, learning, motivation, emotions and the ability to feel pain and pleasure.

Dopamine also controls the bodily functions, blood pressure, digestion, heart rate and metabolism. It helps with focus and depression. Low levels of dopamine can cause fatigue, poor attention, alcoholism, addictions, and depression. Certain recreational drugs will cause an excessively high increase in the dopamine levels that can lead to schizophrenia. There must be a middle dopamine level, not low or high in order to get the healthy benefits from dopamine.

Norepinephrine is another natural chemical neurotransmitter and along with dopamine, has appeared to be regarded as taking part in a significant function in sleeping, attention, awareness, concentration and focus. When produced, norepinephrine has an influence on your body's biological reaction to anxiety and stress. In addition, norepinephrine is also required in understanding, knowledge, mood, feelings, emotions, movement and blood pressure.

      Great clinical facts here. Raising awareness about addictions is huge and that is why I appreciate articles like this one. As you know, I've been there, done that, and now can celebrate ten years of sobriety and a new, happier life...but for years it was a serious struggle. I guess I finally reached the point where I was willing to do anything to stop the madness.

      Very informative. I truly believe in educating people on the harmfull effects of drug and alcohol abuse. When i was young growing up, there were no life orientation classes at my school like there are today. I believe prevention is far better than cure.
