The Truth About Addiction
The Biology, Morality and Politics of Addiction

New Hope for Treating
& Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Criminalizing Addiction is Barbaric and Medieval
Addiction, attention deficit disorder, mild cognitive impairments, obsessive compulsive disorder and some other destructive behaviors such as obsessive violence which involve obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and probably also Alzheimers, all may involve a deficiency in the trace element arsenic.
The negative and destructive behaviors which constitute addiction, with elements of getting on the wagon and getting off the wagon, involve elements of compulsive behavior (obsessive compulsive behavior). It will be found that central in this is a deficiency in the trace element ARSENIC. (Liebig’s Law of the Minimum in chemistry). [This is the same as with deficiency of Chromium in diabetes, which is treatable, according to a physiologist at The specialty center of The Cleveland Clinic Wooster, with over-the-counter Chromium picolinate.] Theoretoically, all the conditions discussed in this article are treatable with tbe use of a 10-natural-element nasal spray found at www.hellolife.net (the number one ingredient of which is arsenic); OR by the use of blue drinks [which are blue because they contaiin that element arsenic (it is the arsenic which makes them blue)]. Examples include blue Kool-Aid, blue PowerAid and blue Monster energy drinks. It may also be found that this arsenic is important in disorders involving something like attention deficit disorder, such as Alzheimers.
TOO MUCH arsenic can cause problems too. Foods high in arsenic (to be consumed for obsessive-compulsive behaviors) include Brussel Sprouts, dark meat fish, rice and chicken and poultry. See 5 Foods Loaded With Arsenic, Prevention, November 26, 2013, by Emily Main for RodaleNews.com. It may be that consuming foods and beverages strong in arsenic IS in fact unhealthy in some regards, but that in the case of addictions, the cure is far more important than any health risk involved. And Beer and wine In the Dartmouth study, men who had 2.5 beers per day had arsenic levels more than 30% higher than nonconsumers. People with addictive obsessive compulsive patterns drink or consume these beverages/chemicals to release the endorphins which sustain them, psychologically. Arsenic may help.
What addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder and Alzheimers have in common then, i sa deficiency in the trace element arsenic. It will probably be found that deficiencies in various trace elements (mineral nutrients) are at the heart of many medical disorders, and this offers an excellent opportunity for research (and relief) in the future. It will probably also be found that the abuse which Dr. Matte speaks of as important in the formative of this chemical imbalance or deficiency may in fact in rare cases occur not just en utero or in infancy but also at any time in an individual’s life, (whether fairly or unfairly). Dr. Mate suggests a very strong relationship between any extended sort of TRAUMA (whether physical or mental) and addiction.
Dr. Gabor Mate on Addiction
Text of the YouTube video:
See Gabor Mate: Attachment, Disease, and Addiction YouTube video – 1:19:57.
Dr Gabor Maté reveals the biological basis of addiction, and the insanity of the statist war on drugs.
Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1944, Gabor Maté emigrated to Canada with his family in 1957. After graduating with a B.A. from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and a few years as a high school English and literature teacher, he returned to school to pursue his childhood dream of being a doctor.
Dr. Maté ran a private family practice in East Vancouver for over twenty years. He was also the Medical Coordinator of the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital for seven years.
Currently he is the staff physician at the Portland Hotel, a residence and resource centre for the people of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Many of his patients suffer from mental illness, drug addiction and HIV, or all three.
Dr. Maté has had regular medical columns in The Vancouver Sun and the national Globe and Mail.
Widely recognized for his unique perspective on Attention Deficit Disorder, and his firmly held belief in the connection between mind and body health, he is a sought-after speaker and seminar leader on these topics.
He is the author of four books — When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress, and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder. The third book, Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers, he co-authored with developmental psychologist Gordon Neufeld. Most recently published is In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction.
Speakiing Truth on Addiction
Paul Evans: The Truth is THIS: EVERYONE has addictions and we should never judge ANYONE anyway, much less just because a person got hooked on something. I see all these great “Christians,” and they always reject peeople because they JUDGE them and then feel free to slight or hurt them, when Jesus taught to NEVER judge anyone and to love your enemies. Maybe Jesus will meet you on your death and say “I never knew you.” What are you addicted to? …righteousness and doctrine, or to living as Jesus really taught? IF you want to go to Heaven. REALLY don’t judge people and REALLY be kind and CARE, and YES it matters to God. What are you addicted to, feeling righteous, fancy houses, clothes and cars, money and power, Facebook for heaven’s sake? God’s grace is a free gift, but being a Christian COSTS and it’s not so easy to “walk the walk.” Don’t feel bad, don’t judge me, don’t do anything except change your attitudes and behaviors, and also our society must end the barbaric practice of criminalizing addiction. “Judge not, lest ye be judged, and in such a manner as ye judge others, so God will judge you.” Anyone with addiction issues who needs help or wants a friend to talk to, email me, Paul Evans, and get to know me and maybe we can talk on the phone, too. God Bless and Blessed Be!
