A Lay Person’s Guide to Addiction

This video by Janis Dougherty came to us from Dr. Holloway following a discussion about how NuCalm can help heal addictive behaviors by remediating stress at the midbrain level.  Regardless of the substance – whether it is food, drugs, alcohol, or habitual behaviors, the process is the same.

Such a true cascade of events, that can easily touch us All.
The disease can take on so many forms throughout your life that it can/does make it hard to identify the early stages and various manifestations and when it is happening….so thankful to see you all recognize the impact! We use 1-2 units almost every hour in our practice and in our personal life. Thanx! Kent
