ADDICTION – reality in treatment!
Points for consideration ©copyright 2011 Bert Seelman
Why is there so much failure in current styles of treatment?
Too much focus on counseling before actual focus can be given by the patient!
The problem: wrong or improper prioritization with addiction
Chemical or nutrient Imbalances not addressed correctly or in proper sequence!
Substance abuse – think what this is saying?
Too much of something while causing too little of something else.
This started with use of some substance / chemical / food etc.
Fact: chemical / nutrient imbalances are present, this is the reality
Cravings – because of the imbalances these cravings worsen causing the habits continue (especially depression). Cravings cause agitation or actual physical feelings. Agitation (physical feelings) becomes more intense as the nutrient balance becomes worse. Again causing worse feelings!
The Mind then fighting agitation tends to not be able to HEAR the consulting
Ability to concentrate is minimized at best!
Improving the chemical / nutrient balance would obviously stop or greatly lessen agitation! If there was a better balance the mental focus being shifted toward the agitation or imbalance i.e. feelings would be lessened or stop!
These physical feelings from imbalance with addiction are real, powerful and need to be addressed. Now counseling would be “heard” or at least have a chance at better reception and or effect!
If nutrient balance was implemented first at the start, then the ALL IMPORTANT FOCUS could greatly improve, thereby greatly reducing stress and strain on the individual, increasing their possible progress to a much greater degree.
POINT: The original problem is usually a “wounded Spirit.” Then the individual seeks to avoid the inner hurtful feelings by COVERING IT by utilizing another feeling or distraction! Whatever is utilized (chemical / food / action /etc) usually means more of that particular something bothering in their spirit is being increased cause the person to USE MORE SUBSTANCE depleting something else. This problem starts in the Spirit or the perception of the mind and ends up putting the physical out of balance. Once the physical feels bad, the individual wants to LESSEN that feeling too! So the action to lessen the feelings tries to control it! The vicious cycle starts in the Spirit or mind and must start with the physical (end stage / imbalance) to get the starting stage to receive its help more effectively.
Simply put, the physical must be brought back to some closeness of balance, before any minimally effective resolve can possibly happen! Or when the body stops screaming on the inside, the spirit and mind can start to hear better, for counseling to have any effect!
