Houston, TX. (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Downtoearthvideo.com, a health-related consumer website that researches and publishes articles dealing with non-traditional treatments and the latest news about alcoholism, calls a new herbal pairing “an extremely promising” supplementation detox cocktail in the battle against alcoholism.
“With an estimated 17.6 million people struggling with alcoholism in the U.S., and countless millions of family members and friends also caught up in the fallout of addiction, the market for alcoholism treatment products have never been stronger,” said downtoearthvideo.com Senior Editor Joe Brown. “We’re currently looking at two specific herbal supplements called Kalmaro and Sobrexa, which are part of an at-home system marketed to the public called ‘Last Call.’”
According to the website, Sobrexa and Kalmaro, are naturally occurring herbs that have been used in various forms for hundreds of years. It’s only recently, they say, that these two herbs have been packaged together to address alcoholism at its source – the brain.
“For example, Sobrexa processes the surprising ability to literally shutdown an alcoholics chemical reaction to drinking, and by doing so, inhibit the ‘buzz’ sensation that drinkers crave,” said Brown. “By inhibiting the endorphins in the brain stimulated by alcohol, this product is designed to lessen the motivation to start drinking In the first place.”
Brown said the second supplement in the one-two herbal system is Kalmaro, which has been shown to help lesson the withdrawal symptoms associated with alcoholism. “The makers of this at-home detox system have basically brought together two interesting supplements as part of sobriety program designed for alcoholics, or anybody with escalating drinking problems,” said Brown, who refers to himself as a former alcoholic.
Brown says people who purchase the system are instructed to use the two supplements over an eight-week period. “For example, the customers receive nine bottles of Sobrexa (the key supplement in the system) in liquid dropper form, and are told to consume the entire contents over the eight-week program,” he said. “This supplement doesn’t affect the taste of a person’s favorite adult beverage, but it does kill the ‘buzz’ and help to slow down any cravings,” he said.
Brown says that nobody knows for sure why this herb, which is a common, fast-growing vine native to Asia and other parts of the world, works in the brain, “But there seems to be more that antidotal evidence to suggests that it does have a positive in turning alcoholics into former alcoholics.”
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 alcoholics and problem drinkers seem bright at this point.”
Brown points out that at-home programs such as Last Call are attractive to those people who are unwilling to join a group our Church for a number of reasons. “According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), 16 million people in the U.S. are dependent on, or abuse alcohol, while only one million seek help of any kind,” he said. “That leaves the door wide open for other home-based or out patient detox programs to gobble up market share.”
The former newspaper investigative reporter, who joined the down to earth video last year as senior editor, says that many people 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. “Even if people can afford expensive rehab centers, many others, including myself, are not comfortable with sharing our stories in such a public way. And while AA and other support groups work for some people, millions of other alcoholics continue to suffer in silence, right along with their families and friends.”
The down to earth video website categorizes drinkers into two distinct groups. “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. “Evidence suggests it is possible for alcoholics to regain control, and even enjoy an occasional drink socially if they wish.”
And that’s the most striking difference between this supplementation-based program and other systems on the market, reports Brown. It’s very controversial, but 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.’”
