Opioid and Heroin Treatment
Opioid and Heroin Treatment
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioid deaths have quadrupled since 1999. Every day, about 40 Americans die from an overdose of prescription opioids which is more than from traffic accidents.
Heroin “street names” include skag, smack, thunder, junkbrown sugar and Big H.
Long term effects of the drug abuse include:
*Weakening of the immune system
*Bad teeth and gums
*Reduced sexual capacity and inability to achieve orgasm (women and men)
*Loss of memory and intellectual performance
*Loss of appetite
Why would you use an addictive drug (such as methadone) to treat a heroin drug addiction?
Would you use gasoline to put out a diesel oil fire? It doesn’t make sense!
Addiction is caused by biochemical imbalances which can be assessed by testing for neurotransmitter and hormonal imbalances, toxicities, nutritional deficiencies, immune stress and food allergies and many genes.

“Doctors have always recognized that every patient is unique, and doctors have always tried to tailor their treatments as best they can to individuals. You can match a blood transfusion to a blood type — that was an important discovery. What if matching a cancer cure to our genetic code was just as easy, just as standard? What if figuring out the right dose of medicine was as simple as taking our temperature?”
— President Barack Obama, January 30, 2015 – Precision Medicine Initiative
“Far too many diseases do not have a proven means of prevention or effective treatments. We must gain better insights into the biology of these diseases to make a difference for the millions of Americans who suffer from them. Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.”
