One of the foremost authorities on substance abuse treatment in the nation, Bean Bruce, has taken upon the task of compiling a book for the people of America on the dangers of drug abuse through his much acclaimed and widely read book, The Bean Bruce Solution. The book details the various symptoms and signs of drug abuse, the harmful effects of alcohol abuse, and how to get help for an alcoholic and drug addict. Drug rehab centers have been around for decades, but they have not been able to provide effective treatment to those addicted to drugs, particularly those suffering from alcoholism and/or addiction to illicit substances. According to a recent news article, in fact, more than one million American men suffer from drug addiction or alcoholism and as many as two million American women suffer from prescription drug abuse. Unfortunately, many people do not know that there is help available either through public or private drug rehabilitation programs, treatment programs offered by local hospitals, or halfway houses. What’s more, there are ways to get treatment without going through the trauma of admission to a drug rehab center.
The book The Bean Bruce Solution addresses the issue of treating drug addiction through nutrition. There is a large portion of the book that details the benefits of consuming raw fruits and vegetables in addition to healthy proteins, vitamins and minerals. However, there are some other helpful tips to overcome drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, such as exercise, yoga, hypnosis, meditation, and nutritional supplements. In many cases, the patient may not require drug addiction treatment from a drug rehab center but can instead turn to a healthier eating program to help them achieve their goals of a clean slate and a new life free from drug abuse and addiction. This idea would appeal to many recovering addicts and former addicts who were able to free themselves from their cravings and negative feelings through a healthier diet and a disciplined work out routine.
A recent study completed by researchers at Lehigh University found that people who consume adequate amounts of protein and healthy fats have better immune system function than those who do not consume adequate amounts of these nutrients. They found that people with a high protein diet have lower incidences of colds and flu. It is important for recovering addicts and ex-addicts to consume enough protein in their diets to help rebuild their bodies and help them keep off the temptation of drug abuse. If you or someone you know is suffering from drug addiction, it would be a good idea to speak with a doctor regarding a detox plan and a healthy eating plan, which could go a long way in assisting a person to stay clean again.
