Alcoholism usually causes deficiencies in vitamin B6, thiamine and folic acid. Individuals with alcoholism also often have an imbalance of fluids, electrolytes and protein. All of this can lead to a damaged liver and pancreas, as well as high blood pressure and seizures. Taking a good multivitamin can help to replace some of the deficient nutrients that commonly occur with alcoholism.
Someone in recovery from an alcohol use disorder will need a well-rounded diet to combat the often severe malnutrition. Women who have been heavy drinkers for a while will often benefit from calcium supplements because they may be at a higher risk for osteoporosis.

Stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine give a high that reduces appetite and the need for sleep. Because of this, your body will likely need lots of liquids to combat dehydration and may need increased calories to replace the energy that is lost with stimulants. Staying up for extended periods can cause several problems for your health and heavy stimulant abuse can cause permanent memory damage.
If you’re used to having dessert you can make some healthier indulgences. Try blending some frozen bananas, milk, and nut butter into “nice cream.” Top it with some cacao nibs or small pieces of dark chocolate.

Stage 1 – Weed
In order for our body to flourish and thrive, we need to ‘weed out’ pathogenic microorganisms and improve the immune system. Antimicrobial herbs, clean eating and keeping your pH levels within a healthy range will ensure these nasty critters are eliminated from your body.
A proper detoxification program needs to be thorough and holistic and will take at least six weeks to complete. Throughout a detox, it is important to keep your diet as clean, wholesome and healthy as possible.
Eliminate caffeine, smoking, alcohol and sugary, fatty foods to ensure proper detoxification. Drink plenty of water, exercise regularly, make yourself some homemade vegetable juices and treat yourself to regular massages to help the process along. Each stage of the detox typically lasts two weeks, ensuring a thorough cleanse.
Stage 3 – Feed
The final stage is all about nourishing and restoring the eliminatory organs and involves foods and herbs that have supportive and nourishing effects.
Stage 2 – Seed
This involves renewing the gut with beneficial bacteria and healing the lining of the intestinal wall. Not all probiotics are the same. They differ between species and strain. A naturopath will be able to help you determine which probiotic is most suitable for you.
Through the entire detox it is best to follow a clean, healthy diet. There is plenty of information available on clean eating on the internet and your local naturopath can give you the guidance and support you need as well.
