Houston, TX. (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Downtoearthvideo.com, a consumer advocate website that reviews the latest non-traditional treatments for alcoholism, calls an ancient supplement more than just a potent “buzz kill,” but a potential cure for those people interested in stopping drinking – or cutting back significantly.
In story published November 2, 2011, in downtoearthvideo.com, Sobrexa – a supplement with origins dating back more than thousand years – is becoming increasingly popular in the treatment of problem drinking, binge drinking, and chronic alcoholism. According to the website, the trademarked supplement is formulated from an ancient herb called kudzu, a fast-growing Asian vine that has long been known for it’s natural soothing effect.
“This herb has been used for a myriad of purposes for hundreds of years,” said senior editor Joe Brown. “However, we’ve know now that Sobrexa also has the surprising ability to literally short-circuit a person’s chemical reaction to alcohol, and by doing so, inhibit the ‘buzz’ sensation from drinking. Obviously, when you throw a roadblock in front of the endorphins stimulated by alcohol – you’re going to pour cold water on any motivation to tip a glass in the first place.”
Brown said that one of the most prominent programs incorporating Sobrexa as a focal part of its alcohol treatment regimen is a multi-prong system called Last Call. “Clearly, this type of at-home stop drinking program isn’t for everybody,” he said. “But for those people who would rather not share their personal problems with others in a biblically-based setting (such as AA), in home programs such as Last Call are rapidly becoming an attractive alternative. However, the bottom line is… will the supplement-based treatment really help people stop drinking?”
Brown says that nobody knows for sure just how this deep-rooted herb works in the brain, “But we now have more than merely antidotal evidence that suggests it does have a rather rapid effect on those people who are motivated to end their addiction and stop drinking.”
According to downtoearthvideo.com, “a study conducted with 1136 individuals were put on the Last Call Program, and were monitored after six months, and again after 12 months. Of the 1136 people who took part in the study, 955 participants reported that the program worked with 100 percent success, ending their cravings and the urges to over drink. We were surprised by such a high success rate – 84 percent – and while more research and data is needed, the system’s future to help the millions of alcoholics seems bright at this point.”
Brown, a former alcoholic himself who beat his addiction through non-traditional programs and supplements, says that far too many people who really want to stop drinking suffer in shame with their problem. “We believe there are cutting-edge, new programs and supplements that can be effective in treating this often-misunderstood disease. Our job is to look beneath the marketing hype of many of these programs for the scientific truth.”
The website points out that the vast majority of people simply won’t, or can’t afford to check themselves into a rehab center, spend tens of thousands, and lose time at work while living in fear that others might find out. “Still others, like myself, are not comfortable sharing our stories in such a very public way. And while AA and other support groups are wonderful for some people, for other alcoholics… it’s a nightmare, and they’ll never even give it a try.”
According to downtoearthvideo.com, research shows there are two categories of drinkers. “One group has absolutely no issues drinking socially, while the other group seems to experience a gradual chemical shift in their bodies and minds… turning the controlled social drinker into an alcoholic,” Brown said. “We believe it’s possible for alcoholics to regain control, and even enjoy an occasional drink socially if they wish. And that’s what our website is all about – reviewing the latest programs, techniques and products that could positively impact the lives of alcoholics and their families.
The website noted that most striking differences between Last Call and other programs is the fact that people are still allowed to drink socially after completing the system. “We talked to one graduate of the program who didn’t want her named used on our website, and she said, ‘I knew I was heading for trouble when I started choosing restaurants by the wine list. The program worked for me, and I still enjoy an occasional glass of wine, but I’m no longer obsessed with drinking.’”
