Tomorrow I plan to stop drinking as I have put on weight, not lost, and dread meals but am hypoglycemic so need to eat. I am sick of wine, sick of it and don't enjoy it anymore. I take lots of vitamins (multi B 100, Magnesium, calcium w/magnesium, chromium, evening primrose oil, Co-Q 10, Esther C 500, Psyllium Husk, Flax Seed Oil, Kyolic Garlic, and a few others). What can anyone tell me about what is going on and why booze affects appetite.
From Hulda Clark "Cure of all Diseases". Should give you some Ideas to try.
There are many definitions of addiction. My definition is
based on the special brain toxins, beryllium and ergot.
The brain has a region called the addiction center. If this
center is stimulated it produces pleasure-chemicals. It is carefully
controlled so that not too much pleasure or happiness can be
When a toxic substance, beryllium, is inhaled it circulates
with the blood to the brain and may land at the addiction center.
The more beryllium is inhaled the bigger the chance that it will
occupy the addiction center. The brain cells in the addiction
center have receptor sites for glutamate (the same glutamic acid
that comes from the protein in our food). Normally, glutamate
activates the addiction center. But when beryllium has “stolen”
these seats, the glutamate is powerless to activate the joy and
happiness center. The result is a low level chronic depression.
The more beryllium there is to clog the receptors the worse the
depression. Giving glutamic acid does not help but giving glu-
tamine does! Addicted or depressed persons should take glutamine,
no less than 3 grams (3000 mg) a day. It comes in 500
mg. tablets. It is completely harmless.
When we drink alcohol or put it on the skin (as in mouthwash,
tinctures, medicine) or produce it by fermentation in the
intestines (Candida produces alcohol) a substance, salsol, is
formed. Salsol reacts with beryllium. If the beryllium is in the
pleasure center it reacts with it there. This reaction has the effect
of activating the cells! Now a large amount of pleasure-chemical
can be released. The amount is larger than normal because so
many clogged cells are activated together. This explains the
alcohol “high”. In all the alcohol-addicted persons I studied,
salsol was present, along with beryllium, on the receptor sites
normally activated by glutamate (or NMDA or kainate). As we
removed the beryllium we saw that the salsol also disappeared.
The solution to alcoholism is to avoid ergot contaminated
food and avoid beryllium inhalation. We also remove the brain
beryllium using thioctic acid. Stopping the use of alcohol may
save a life or career but does not correct the problem. Even after
30 years of abstinence, I still see the beryllium present in the
addiction center and the salsol, derived no doubt from endogenous
sources, still attached to the beryllium. This is why the addiction
is never gone even after years of abstinence.
If any member of the family is, or was, addicted to alcohol
the house should be searched for beryllium sources. Hurricane
lamps or antique lamps are the most common sources. Remove
them permanently. Washing does not clean them. Remove all
solvents, cleaners, lighters. Switch to a butane lighter. The air
should be tested for beryllium. The garage door to the house
should be permanently closed, and the car and lawnmower kept
out of it. Addicted persons should not be painters! Nor walk into
a dry-cleaning business. Soon you will see a more cheerful
