Empower The Body:
The following tips are from Dr. Beasley's and Mary P. Cheney's Book,"How to Defeat Alcoholism" 2nd Edition:
- Eat a balanced diet including a wide variety of foods, as it is impossible to fill all your body's needs if you
eat only a few foods. Good nutrition with the proper balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, and
unsaturated fats will ensure a more steady supply of energy to every system of the body.
- Eat small frequent meals, with a small snack between meals to maintain blood sugar levels. Try to eat
something every two to three hours. Good snacks include cheese, nuts or seeds, small pieces of meat or
poultry, yogurt, fruit, or raw veggies.
- Eliminate or reduce consumption of sugar and sugar-containing foods and caffeine.
- Eliminate or reduce the intake of highly processed foods including refined carbohydrate
- Eliminate or rotate any known allergy-producing foods.
- Take a high quality vitamin and mineral supplement and follow a nutritional supplement protocol to ensure
you include all the natural neurotransmitter precursors to help the brain recover normal production of the
chemicals which provide the natural high of good health.
- Schedule regular time for exercise. Regular exercise (enough to work up a sweat) three or more times a
week will also increase stamina and vigor, particularly if the activity is something a person really enjoys.
