Across the world, alcoholism (or Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)), claims the lives of 3.3 million people every year. That’s one person every ten seconds. That’s more than suicide, gun crime and all global wars combined. Teen alcohol use kills around 4,700 people every year in the US alone — that’s more than all illegal drugs combined. In 2015, 10,265 people died in drink driving crashes in the USA – that’s one every 51 minutes.
If you suffer from, or know someone who suffers from AUD, you will know all too well how crippling and insidious the condition can be. It can be incredibly distressing to witness this disease devouring a loved one and to see first hand, the often permanent collateral damage it can bring with it. You will almost certainly be under the impression that the only ‘cure’ for
alcoholism is abstinence. However, this astonishingly frank, eye opening talk from actress and singer Claudia Christian reveals a little known therapy called TheSinclair Method, which may in fact ‘reverse’ alcohol addiction.
We’ve included a link to Roy Eskapa’s ground breaking book; The Cure for Alcoholism, which already seems to have changed and possibly even saved many lives. We’ve also included links below to Adam Schomer’s film about The Sinclair Method entitled “One Little Pill”. It’s available to rent or buy on Vimeo now. As the rate of alcoholism continues to increase year on year, the value of such knowledge, especially to those of us who ‘know’ can hardly be over estimated.
ADENDUM The drug used in this therapy, Naltrexone, is now known to be effective (in a slightly different form), for an array of other diseases. We are currently working on this story and it’ll be available here in the coming weeks.
