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