"Alcohol abuse remains an unsolved problem, enormously costly and enormously painful. Over 60 percent of adults drink alcohol and half of those drink heavily at some point. Excessive alcohol consumption contributes to violent crime, damages the liver and brain, impairs judgment, leads to depressive symptoms and causes nutrient deficiencies. But there is hope: nutrition can cure alcohol addiction. Alcoholism is not a disease. Rather, the person called an alcoholic has a sick body and seeks relief by consuming alcohol. Megavitamin therapy is cheaper, safer and more effective than drugs or counselling. Alcoholics suffer from a nutrient deficiency, especially vitamin B3. This book outlines the nutritional factors proven successful in treating alcoholism. This book can help those who suffer from alcohol addiction, their friends and loved-ones, and those in the relevant helping professions. "

About the Author:

I have lived a full, interesting and creative life supported by my family and many friends and irritated and spurred on by the hostile criticisms of a group of psychiatrists representing APA and NIMH. I was born on a farm in Southern Saskatchewan in 1917, completed High School in a rural school, my PhD at University of Minnesota and Medical degree at University of Toronto. By the time I got my first job I was 33 years old, had three children and was totally fed up with being a student. The last thing in the world I wanted to do was to become a psychiatrist, then the lowest branch of medicine. My wife Rose put up with these long student years while she brought up our three children. Bill became one of the world’s best antiquarian book experts. He died 6 years ago from lung cancer. John is a Professor of Medicine at McGill University in Montreal a great clinician and researcher into nutrition, and Miriam is dietitian at Women College hospital in Toronto and recently published her very good book Fueling Body, Mind and Spirit. Rose died in August 2001 and since then I am alone but absorbed with my family and my work. I have the support of remarkable friends and scientists and all of us working together will eventually overhaul medicine back to its interest in nutrition and in nutrients. Since they did not know me personally I never took it personally although I must admit I would have preferred had they been supportive. I give my critics full credit for having delayed the full introduction of orthomolecular medicine into the medical world and for having denied life, health and happiness for innumerable patients. Supporters of old paradigms never realize how much damage they do by their remarkable rigidity and adherence to old theories.

Andrew W. Saul, M.S., Ph.D., is editor-in-chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine NewsService and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Has published more than 180 peer-reviewed articles and has written or coauthored 12 books.
