2 CE Credit Hours | Addiction - Do We Always Need More Drugs?

Are you concerned about the prescription drug use for preventing and recovering from addiction? This course teaches you how to get the job done without drugs.

Addiction: Holistic Treatment: Do We Always Need More Drugs?

We are living in a new and more creative environment when it comes to treating addictions as well as general health! More and more people are interested in low- to non-toxic ways to enable recovery and full healing from drug use as well as living a better quality of life and living longer.

This course explores two scholarly definitions of addiction, physiological, cognitive/affective, and spiritual effects of addiction, and the corresponding holistic approaches to each of these three broad categories. In this course we examine gene expression in relation to the brain’s circuitry, the immune system, the cardiovascular system, and more. We then provide information on newer approaches, such as those coming from the new and exploding field of epigenetics (how the environment interacts with our genes), and we also take a look at the field of nutrigenomics (how nutrition specifically interacts with our genes).

Approaches such as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), homeopathic detoxing, orthomolecular medicine, healthier diets and supplements, and spiritual beliefs plus altruism are highlighted. I hope you enjoy this course!
