I'm not even sure why I read this book, but it opened my eyes to a new understanding of nutrition. I don't have what most people think of when they think of addiction: drugs, alcohol, smoking, etc. But I DO have an addiction to carbs, just like probably every person walking down the street with an expanding waistline. And for me, this book stopped that expansion in its tracks.

Before reading this book, I had only a vague understanding of what neurotransmitters were and how important they are for the brain. I had NO idea more are produced in the gut than in the brain and how you treat your gut is going to impact everything from cognitive function to every aspect of your mood. Once that door is opened, nutrition becomes awe inspiring.

Dr. Gant puts forward the idea that when you become deficient in a particular neurotransmitter, through poor nutrition, mal-absorption or genetics, you settle on a "drug of choice" to cope. But this only makes things worse because instead of your body getting what it needs to produce the neurotransmitter itself, it relies on an unsatisfactory crutch. Plus, more than one neurotransmitter may be involved so more than one crutch may be sought.

He has put together tests in the book to help you discover in which areas you might have deficiencies. Through his three decades of experience treating people with addictions, he has discovered different neurotransmitters correlate with specific "crutches". But if you don't have any of the traditional addictions, these tests may be of limited value. It's too bad because he gives the nod to the fact that sugar/carbs are some of the most addictive substances there are, but then doesn't really address them in this book as much as he does the traditional addictions.

As an addictions counselor, I highly recommend this book. The approach is something most doctors overlook...our nutrition and how it affects our feelings, neurotransmitters and over all health.

For those of you who are skeptics because of the legal investigations, do a little more digging and research before you question the man's ethics, and try the program before you question his expertise (think about other scientists who were "ahead of their time" and bucked the system and what happened to them historically). Some of the charges were for coding billing so that patients' insurance company would pay for testing. While not strictly up and up, I can't fault him for trying to help the patient afford to get healthy. I have tried the program, and it truly works. Felt positive changes within four days, took about three weeks for me to really feel great.

I have only a rudimentary understanding of the chemistry behind the theories here, but the text is written in easily understood language and makes sense. Most importantly, it works. Author is honest about timelines, withdrawal, etc. When you read something that promises an almost instant benefit, you're naturally skeptical, but the supplements work. You can feel a difference in mood, energy level, and optimism right away. You really can use this program to kick your cigarette, alcohol, drug, or carb addiction.

Format: Paperback
I've been addicted to anime/manga/alcohol/pornography for so many years. Though, this book help me in some level, it didn't help me so much on reducing my cravings in a long term.

I'm still far from being cured but my addiction improved when I read the Alcoholism and Addiction Cure by Chris Prentiss. I combine it with the things I learned from Charles Gant's book.

I notice that my cravings will be severe based on my "state of mind." Even if I'm taking large doses of amino acid I learned from this book, my cravings is still VERY strong based on my emotional state. It happens on time whenever I got traumatic events, wrong mindset and beliefs, something like that.

So, basically I learned that I could control my addiction the most if I have the right mindset. (which I learned from Chris Prentiss books)

Respects,
John

I am a personal trainer and this book has given me the truth and the facts behind addiction and real, lasting healing. I've been following Charles Gant for some time now and have read almost every article he's put out. The man has a powerful and comprehensive understanding of health and healing. (see "grand unified theory") You get more than you anticipate from this book and have the opportunity to see the realities behind addictions of all kinds and how it begins at the biochemical level. in a world now filled with potent and readily available drugs (legal and illegal) this is one of the most important books of our generation and a must have for anyone who has a loved one struggling with any kind of addiction.

The major focus of the book is on healing the brain neurotransmitters. If they work right, you work right. Various chapters cover overcoming sugar addiction, smoking, alcohol abuse, cocaine, painkillers, marijuana and more. Specific nutrients for each disorder are outlined so that you can take immediate action to start healing your body and brain. Every rehab center in the country should also have this book to help prevent client relapse.

I also recommend this book by Dr Gant: ADD & ADHD: Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM) Solutions
