The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free BY LESLIE CAROL BOTHA
Do you need caffeine or sugar to help you wake up and/or get through the day? Do you turn to alcohol or other substances to help you relax and unwind? Do you hide how much you eat, drink, or smoke? Are concerned about your current dependence on antidepressant or other mood-altering medications? Have you been in recovery, but still have cravings?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then listen to Dr. Hyla Cass share information from her e-book The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free. All too often people with addictive behaviors are subject to judgments from family and friends. But no one judges them more than the negative messages they give themselves.
Dr. Cass will explain that your addiction is not because you are a âweakâ or âbadâ person â it is because your brain chemistry is out of balance. She will share how the correct combination of healthy diet and specific nutritional supplements can correct these problems so you can reclaim your happiness and well being. Tune in September 26th, to Holy Hormones Honey! at 9 am PT for the show!
