Diet Hints To Assist With
Alcoholism Withdrawal 

 

There are quite a few adjustments that can be made with regard to alcoholism and the diet when it comes to trying to work through the affects of alcohol withdrawal.

There are some simple steps that can help make some long term gains. Also, there are some things that a person should understand about alcohol withdrawal.

Lets have a look at alcohol withdrawal.

Withdrawal as relates to alcohol abuse is marked with symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, trembling or shaking, various physical reactions and mental disturbances. This occurs when a person suddenly removes the daily habitual intake of large amounts of alcohol that has been practiced for a long period of time.

The result is some major changes the body will go through as alcoholic dependency causes great changes to chemical levels that affect the brain.

For example, an alcoholic has basically exposed his or her brain to a constant bombardment of sedation with each and every drink. With this extended exposure to alcohol, the brain chemistry is altered to make up for the sedative.

It starts pumping out chemical relatives to adrenaline in quantities the body isnt meant to be exposed to on a regular basis.

The Result? Well what do we have? A turbocharged brain that is sedated too. What a contrast. Now, take away the sedative from that racing brain and what do you think will happen as it continues to pump out jet fuel? You get a very stimulated excited brain.

Alcohol suddenly removed under these conditions causes reactions involving major over stimulation that is actually harmful to the body and mind. But there are dietary changes and additions we can make to help the body deal with the changes involved with alcohol withdrawal.

First thing is to remove the junk foods and drinks as well as, coffee and dairy related products. Many alcoholics can stay sober easier if they eat whole foods, you know wholesome stuff, and vegetables and fruit in abundance.

This works best when the practice is maintained for an extended time. The vegetables and fruits with their wholesome nutrients help repair the damage wreaked by the excessive and prolonged alcohol consumption.

These components in the diet also help to reduce cravings for alcohol. It is also necessary to provide some much needed vitamin and mineral supplements to the regimen.

The Alcoholics body needs them to recover, needs them to repair, needs them to help stay away from future alcoholic drinks.

There might also be other injuries and damage to the internal organs as a result of excessive consumption of alcohol. Those that have ulcers should eat many small meals. Not only would they be doing as advised to treat the ulcer but would have something more to distract them and to interest them.

You know, cooking several meals a day can take time and shift the direction of someones thoughts.

Consequently, they might think about something other than booze. Eating healthy again due to other concerns about blood pressure or cholesterol might cause a person to remain home more and away from places where alcoholic drinks are served.

You can use self-help books where the alcoholic is taking responsibility for his own health. This can work well because once the person knows of the problem it becomes easier to resolve.

Another thing that someone with alcoholism can do to recover from it is to use a combination of approaches.

This could involve working on self-help issues, going to AA meetings and involving other people in the process for support.
