"Natural supplements used to treat alcohol and drug abuse, reduce craving, decrease withdrawal symptoms or reduce the risk of relapse include vitamins, magnesium and zinc, Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal formulas, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Taking certain amino acids including taurine, and L-tryptophan may reduce alcohol craving or consumption and diminish withdrawal symptoms. One study found that taurine in doses up to 3gm/day significantly decreased alcohol withdrawal symptoms in hospitalized alcoholics undergoing acute detoxification."

Another natural way to overcome any hurt habit or hangup is introduce yourself to the character of God thru a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you intelligently delegate control of your life (surrender) to God (2 Cor. 12:9*10), you will behave with self-control (Gal. 5:22-23), with Christ like thinking and direct healthy behavior that honors God ( Romans 12:2).

The antidote for any hurt, habit or hangup: Is when you choose to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, when you replace the rewards of displaced behaviors or addictions with the rewards of direct Christ Driven Behavior (CDB) that honors God. When you give God control that control will be returned to you with the fruits of the spirit including self-control. We develop new transformed thinking, new values, motivation, purpose and character. Christ is a great motivational mentor if you let Him; if you are willing to intellectually delegate control to a more qualified entity. Jesus Christ has been teaching behavior therapy for more than 2000 years with 66 books written by proxy. Through prayer and scripture we Recognize our emotional weakness, our helpless situations, we Reframe the pros and cons of our behavior and Replace the cons with new CDB behavior.

God is our creator and Jesus Christ is His incarnate son who gave humans the core values, connection and system template for healthy human behavior. At the core of Scripture are VALUES that drive us, systems that take us to the desired result and a focus of communicating the message to love God and love others. Jesus Christ taught His basic psychotherapy over 2000 years ago. He authored by proxy, 66 books on it. We all need to read the Bible to be wise, believe it to be saved and practice it to be holy and healthy. Most addiction experts perceive that Science and Scripture are antithetical; this is a misconception. We need scientific explanation to understand nature. We need meaning to understand human behavior. We need God to know the answers to both.

Change your thinking and let God change your life with direct healthy assertive behavior and not displaced behaviors.

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
