The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism can help those who suffer from alcohol addiction, their friends and loved ones, and those in the relevant helping professions. Its central message: optimally-nourished individuals do not get addicted. Alcoholism is primarily a metabolic disease that should be treated nutritionally first. The person called an "alcoholic" typically suffers from nutrient deficiency, especially vitamins B1 and B3, and seeks relief by consuming alcohol. Megavitamin therapy is more effective than drugs or counseling. It is also cheaper than counseling, and far safer than any pharmaceutical drug treatment.

Behavioral and psychological treatment approaches have lacked long-term success, largely because they pay little attention to the nutritional needs of alcoholics. In fact, Bill W., the man who cofounded Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), actively promoted the concept of megavitamin therapy. Bill W. had long suffered from severe depression, which promptly ended when Bill began to take large doses of vitamin B-3 under the personal direction of Dr. Abram Hoffer. 

Surprisingly, The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism also discusses how nutrition can help stop addictions to cigarettes and hard drugs, including narcotics. If this sounds impossible, then why did psychiatrist Abram Hoffer write this book? If it is possible, this is the missing information that alcoholics and other addiction sufferer need right now.

About the Author:

Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D., published over 600 reports and articles as well as thirty books. His early work led to the use of vitamin B3 for schizophrenia and as an anticholesterol treatment. He introduced Bill W., cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous, to the concept of megavitamin therapy.

Andrew W. Saul is the author of over 180 peer-reviewed publications, and is author or coauthor of a dozen books (four of which are with Dr. Hoffer). He is featured in the popular movie FoodMatters, and is editor-in chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service.

Review:

"If you or a relative are troubled with alcoholism, The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism is a great read."  (Ronald Hoffman, M.D.)

"Having the foremost advocates of megavitamin therapy, or orthomolecular medicine, tell us how they define and treat alcoholism and other addictions, is quite exciting. Both authors have that great ability to boil down highly technical material into clearly understandable language."
(Ralph Campbell, M.D.)
