Treating alcoholism appears to be impossible, unless the person in question is really stubborn and has lots of willpower. Friends and relatives simply cannot understand why someone continues to drink in spite of all the obvious disadvantages - crashed car, split marriages, loss of jobs etc. This book does a great job of explaining how the brain actually starts to "misfire" because it is not fed properly. That in its turn means the persons logical and emotional powers are not normal. Not only that - it provides "self tests" to gauge what kind of vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutritional supplements you need ,and gives you clear directions on what to take and when.
