Arm yourself with certain herbs Your liver takes the brunt of alcohol abuse. But your nervous system takes a hit too. Fortunately, treating the liver and calming the nervous system are areas where herbs excel. One of the best is damiana for its ability to enhance mood and reduce alcohol cravings.

Excerpt: Withdrawal from alcohol is the process of cutting back or stopping the use of alcohol. The kinds of symptoms you will experience will depend on your age, your personality type, and how long you have been addicted to alcohol. If you have a physical dependence on alcohol this means that if you don’t drink alcohol, symptoms occur and they go away if you take a drink. If you’re psychologically addicted to alcohol, you may believe you can’t communicate with people or attend a party without having a drink. Some people can’t even get through a normal day without alcohol, and others who drink more than the norm yet still manage to hold down a job and get by in the modern world may be described as ‘functioning alcoholics’.  Symptoms Of Alcohol Withdrawal While your body is adjusting to the absence of alcohol, you may experience some or more of these symptoms: Body tremors; Insomnia; Anxiety; Headaches; Nausea and vomiting; Changes in heart rate and blood pressure; Seizures; Feeling clammy or sweaty It’s impossible to tell how you will react to quitting alcohol or how long the symptoms will last. For this reason it’s best to seek professional help with this process. For example, if you experience heart problems, breathing difficulties or seizures while detoxing, you want to be sure you have access to medical supervision. My client John discovered that he was going to need a little extra help when he tried to cut back from 12 beers a day to none. Each week he lasted well until about day 5, then after that time he suffered crippling anxiety, heart palpitations and body twitches. We agreed that before he did any more hypnosis work with me, he would seek professional help to get through the physiological impact of quitting alcohol. One he did that he was able to stay off the grog for good. https colon //melbournehypnotherapyclinic dot com/how-to-get-off-alcohol-safely/ Another website: something different from above site is in yellow Healthline https://www.healthline.com/health/alcoholism/withdrawal#symptoms What are the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome? The signs and symptoms of AWS may appear anywhere from six hours to a few days after your last drink. These usually include at least two of the following: tremors; anxiety; nausea; vomiting; headache; an increased heart rate; sweating; irritability confusion; insomnia; nightmares; high blood pressure The symptoms may worsen over two to three days, and some milder symptoms may persist for weeks in some people. They may be more noticeable when you wake up with less alcohol in your blood. The most severe type of withdrawal syndrome is known as delirium tremens (DT). Its signs and symptoms include: Extreme confusion; extreme agitation; a fever; seizures; tactile hallucinations, such as having a sense of itching, burning, or numbness that isn’t actually occurring; auditory hallucinations, or hearing sounds that don’t exist; visual hallucinations, or seeing images that don’t exist; If you have severe AWS symptoms, it’s a medical emergency. Call for help or go to the emergency room. A high fever, hallucinations, and heart disturbances are all reasons to seek immediate help. Q What causes alcohol withdrawal syndrome? Excessive drinking excites and irritates the nervous system. If you drink daily, your body becomes dependent on alcohol over time. When this happens, your central nervous system can no longer adapt easily to the lack of alcohol. If you suddenly stop drinking or significantly reduce the amount of alcohol you drink, it can cause AWS…. Q: What nutrition advice can you provide for people recovering from alcohol addiction? A: This depends on the individual and the results of laboratory tests that their doctor may order. In general, blood work will test serum magnesium, and replacements will occur if indicated. Vitamins such as thiamine and folic acid will need to be supplemented. In addition, the doctor may add a daily multiple vitamin. The person should also try to eat three well-balanced meals per day and drink enough water to remain hydrated. Timothy J.

Membership in white supremacist gangs has nearly doubled in state prisons over the last 10 years, officials say, and they worry the numbers may continue to rise.

By William Tucker https colon//inhomelandsecurity.com/russias-assassination-campaign-continues-against-dissent/ Excerpt: Russia’s targeted killing campaign involves both internal security matters and external hybrid warfare efforts aimed at subverting former Eastern bloc states now looking to the West for security.In December, Germany expelled two Russian diplomats in response to the murder in August of a Chechen exile. The brazen attack was carried out in public and ultimately resulted in the arrest of the assassin. Moscow, of course, denies responsibility, but the Kremlin has either participated in assassinations of former Chechen rebels or looked the other way while those loyal to Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov carried out the hits.Murdering a former Chechen rebel abroad falls into the internal security category of Russian killings, and this recent murder in Germany is but one example of Russia targeting Chechens abroad. The same goes for the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal, or the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, both of whom were former Russian intelligence officers who defected to the West. Moscow used elaborate measures to target these individuals with the intention of sending a message to other potential defectors. Russia Is Also a Dangerous Place for Journalists Who Challenge the State Russia is also a dangerous place for journalists who challenge the state or any political opposition to Vladimir Putin. Numerous journalists in Russia have been murdered or disappeared in the last decade alone and the trends are not improving. What’s worse, Russia has been implicated in the murder of foreign journalists, making international criticism of the Putin regime a deadly gambit.Putin’s political opponents fare any better than journalists, but as Russian activist and lawyer Alexei Navalny would likely attest, harassment is commonplace. It is worth mentioning that Navalny has not yet met the same fate as the late Boris Nemtsov, another Putin foe. However, that may be cold comfort. https colon //inhomelandsecurity.com/russias-assassination-campaign-continues-against-dissent/ 2020/06/27-28; 2020/07/01 NO to Black Lives Matter (BLM) continues.  Bank Mobile.  Portland, Oregon 2015 car-break-in/theft/fraud-identity theft issue.

By Brett Swancer. https://mysteriousuniverse.org/2018/11/navajo-police-encounters-with-the-paranormal/ Excerpt: Perhaps one of the most interesting cases of reservation law enforcement dealing with the paranormal is a whole department devoted to such phenomena….The team is called the Navajo Nation Rangers, consisting of a group of specially trained federal officers that are typically in charge of a variety of tasks, such as managing national parks, archaeological sites, and fish and wildlife services. In this case, they expanded their operations to include the investigation of reports of the paranormal, and although such reports accounted for less than 1% of their total cases, they were taken very seriously by the department https://mysteriousuniverse.org/2018/11/navajo-police-encounters-with-the-paranormal/
