What Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan Must do to Stay Clean and Sober
Both Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears have unsuccessfully gone through three stints in rehab in the past year and the question still remains, “Will they ever be clean and sober for real?”
Harris Stratyner, a psychologist with Caron, a nonprofit addiction treatment organization says, "It is making a mockery of rehabs." Research from Caron shows the relapse rates for addictive diseases range from 50 percent for resumption of heavy use to 90 percent for a brief lapse.
Lohan and Spears have been seen smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee on their first days out of rehab and beyond. Though most people do not view coffee and cigarettes as hard drugs, they do indeed contain very addictive chemicals. So if someone with a chemical addiction continues to give into another chemical craving, will that person ever overcome their problems?
Clinical nutritionist Thomas Von Ohlen, MS, NC does not believe so. “Without a natural cleansing of the body’s major organs like the liver, kidneys, and digestive tract, it is next to impossible to recover fully from chemical addictions,” states Von Ohlen.
Von Ohlen is a co-author of the book “101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health,” and the author of “60 Days to Healthy Weight Loss and Whole Body Cleansing.” He goes on to say that, “Research shows that over time, your body absorbs thousands of chemicals from air, water, and processed food, as well as prescriptions and recreational drugs.
Once your cells become congested with these chemicals, your body can no longer process chemicals or nutrients efficiently which leads to further chemical cravings, especially for stimulants. It is imperative to cleanse your whole body in order for your cell chemistry to return to normal. When this is accomplished, your energy levels will be restored and you will no longer have the same cravings for stimulants such as sugar, nicotine, cocaine, caffeine, and alcohol.
Some other symptoms of a toxic body besides drug and alcohol addiction are weight gain, fatigue, acne, rashes, sinus congestion, burning or dry eyes, headaches and memory loss. Von Ohlen suggests using an all organic natural whole body cleanse from www.BestOnEarthProducts.com to ensure an easy and safe removal of toxins from the body.
You don’t have to party like a rock star to be toxic in our society today. Unfortunately, it appears Lohan and Spears along with millions of others will continue to struggle with their addictions if they do not get to the root chemical cause.
