One of our members at the Curezone Iodine Group discovered this AMAZING cure for alcoholic addiction! Here is his story:
"What do they have in common, well plenty I must say!
When I turned 21, I began my journey into alcohol. It was all fun and games for the first several years, but then turned into something dark. I was having trouble falling asleep and all that was on my mind was liquor and beer. I began binge drinking almost everyday for the next 6-7 years, mostly at night. I developed an anxiety about being able to fall asleep, so I would drink at night until I passed out. Things were very bad, alcohol consumed my thoughts.
I turned 30 on November of last year. I started the Iodine protocol on October of last year too. Something miraculous happened...
From the very moment I started the Iodine protocol, all my urges and desires for alcohol COMPLETELY went away. I feel asleep really fast and slept throughout the night. No more are the nights of anxiety wondering how long will it take me to fall asleep and trying to fight the urge to binge myself to sleep.
Its been 8+ months since I touched alcohol, but I really don't care about the numbers. All that matters is that alcohol no longer consumes me. I go out with friends, have no desire to drink, and end up having more fun than I did with booze.
"At almost 2 years into Iodine supplementation, I've learned that if I dip below 300mg of 5% Lugols (which is 132mg elemental), my alcohol cravings come back with a vengeance.
I've dabbled into the 1-5 grams SSKI daily for several months, this was the only form I was taking, and that's when the cravings started to return. I added a dropper full of Lugols with it, but to no avail. While I felt great with good energy, the cravings really bothered me. I would cave and binge constantly.
Could there really be a biological need for that much elemental iodine? That sure is a lot of brown water to be drinking everyday! I'm not sure the long term consequences of ingesting that much elemental iodine, but it surely has to be better than binge drinking nearly every night and chronic dehydration it brings." //www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=2161684
"Based on alcohol cravings and how my testicles feel, I've seemed to level off at 100mg 5% Lugols and 1 gram SSKI . I will add more Lugols/elemental (300mg total) when my alcohol cravings rear their ugly face or if my testicles get tender.
