I have a family friend who is a diagnosed alcoholic
I have a family friend who is a diagnosed alcoholic. She is the same age as me -31. If alcoholism came in stages like cancer, she would stage 4- close to death. She is in and out of hospital and has been resuscitated on several occasions.
Her mother is at her wits end and doesn’t know what to do. They have money so they have paid for her to go into several rehab clinics in the UK and abroad but she checks herself out. I know that until the person admits that they have a problem and acknowledges that they need to get better there is little that anyone else can do.
The nhs are useless and won’t section her.
So I thought I’d look into alternative ideas for her since I am pursuing this route too for my ill health.
Apart from the magnesium protocol are there any other ideas you would suggest? Could the htma test be useful in treating alcohol addiction? I feel like she needs a kick start, but from a new angle.
I’ve read that having the gene test for the mtfhr mutation might be a good idea?
And L-theanine to help with the side effects that alcohol causes in the liver?
Any other suggestions would be gratefully received. Thank you.
