Alcoholism: Recovery And Healing With Herbs

Herbs for alcoholism

Dandelion Root * Ginseng root * Kudzu * Milk Thistle Seed * Passion Flower * Reishi Mushroom * Skullcap *

The liver takes the brunt of the abuse dished out by long term alcohol abuse, and recovery and healing should begin with healing the liver. Milk thistle is one of the best known and respected herbs for protecting the liver. The silymarin contained in the milk thistle seeds acts to help the liver eliminate toxins, including alcohol. In traditional Chinese medicine, Reishi mushrooms have been used as a tonic to prevent "fatty-liver" and cirrhosis due to alcohol abuse. Kudzu has shown amazing promise in the fight against problem drinking. Research has shown kudzu can curb the urge to consume alcohol in some populations. Kudzu may be more effective if used in its natural state, such as in kudzu tea. It is possible that persons of East Asian ancestry have the greatest response to kudzu as a treatment for alcohol abuse.
