Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal: The levels of alcohol withdrawal

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal is not the end of alcohol addiction but just a strategy of containing the vice which can make you a prisoner

Before we can talk about alcohol withdrawal, one must have been into drinking for a long period of time. This is so because alcohol withdrawal is pegged on the ex poser of alcohol to the brain over a given duration that is considered long enough to cause such damages. It is important to note that alcohol withdrawal is different from withdrawal from most other drugs. This is so because alcohol withdrawal can be fatal and deadly. Ideally studies have indicated that the only drugs capable of reacting like alcohol to the point of causing death from withdrawal are the benzodiazepines. It is not like other substances heroin withdrawal for example will rarely be that fatal let alone ever killing anyone. But untreated major alcohol withdrawal can kill one person in three. The good news is that these fatalities are almost completely preventable if people are properly tapered off from their alcohol use. Therefore as it is always said that prevention is better that cure, experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of Doctor Dalal Akoury’s care are doing all that it takes to create awareness about all the mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal so that we may have a healthy society we can be happy to call home. On that note, doctor Akoury is going to help us come to speed with the understanding of the levels of alcohol withdrawal as follows.

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal: The levels of alcohol withdrawal

Professionally across the board globally, doctors generally recognizes the three levels of alcohol withdrawal in the following order:

Level one minor withdrawal – Shaky hands sweating, mild anxiety, insomnia, nausea and headache. These symptoms may appear within 6 to 12 hours after quitting drinking.

Level two Mid-level Withdrawal – Minor withdrawal symptoms at a more intense level plus visual, auditory or tactile hallucinations. The patient generally is aware that the hallucinations are not real, possible seizures, racing pulse and irregular heartbeat. These symptoms may appear within 12 to 48 hours after quitting drinking.

Level three Major Withdrawal – Delirium, alcohol-induced hallucinations, patient generally cannot distinguish hallucination from reality, profuse sweating, seizures and severe blood pressure spikes, sever tremor, racing and irregular heartbeat, fever and possible death. These symptoms may appear within 48 to 72 hours after quitting drinking and peak in five days. Remember that mild or mid-level alcohol withdrawal are rarely if ever fatal unless you have a very weak heart. Major withdrawal is the most dangerous one.

Popular slang in the United States refers to the shakiness which comes with mild alcohol withdrawal as “D.T.s”. This is a rather confusing use of terminology since properly speaking “D.T.s” refers to delirium tremens which is associated with major withdrawal. Real delirium tremens is life-threatening and can kill one in every three untreated patients. The shakiness associated with minor withdrawal is not life-threatening either. Now that you know of the three levels of alcohol withdrawal and their intensity of damage they can cause your life and that of your loved ones, it would be very important to carry out a self-evaluation about yourself so that you can take percussions in good time. You may want to schedule for an appointment with doctor Akoury for her professional touch about your situation and you will not regret it all the days of your life.

Your Health is Wealth with Dr. Akoury: AMERICAN ADDICTS Special guest: Dr. Gregory Smith

From a recent CBS NEWS report:

American Addicts according to researchers

Researchers find that nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and more than half receive at least two prescriptions,reports CBS Atlanta.

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic, a non-profit medical and research center, report that antibiotics, antidepressants and painkiller opioids are the most common prescriptions given to Americans.

Twenty percent of U.S. patients were also found to be on five or more prescription medications.

If you aren’t shocked by these findings, you should be! American Addicts are growing in numbers and are destroying our families, our communities and our economy

Americans are becoming addicts at an alarming rate, and doctors are becoming legalized drug dealers, some unwittingly contributing to the epidemic of prescription drug addictions.

American Addiction

America Addict

Dr. Gregory Smith and Dr. Dalal Akoury are two doctors that are out to change the attitudes and assist Americans out of the slavery of drug addiction, and all types of addiction. (smoking, alcohol, sex, food, etc.) Addiction is not just a problem with lower economic citizens, it’s found it’s way into the lives of the professional sector and is growing rapidly. Many professionals with addictions are reluctant to seek help, embarrassed to admit there is a problem, and oftentimes lose everything, family, money, jobs, and most important, their health.

American Addicts Documentary is a Story

American Addicts is the story of how America has gone from the land of the free to the land of the addicted. America represents 5% of the world’s population but consumes 50% of the world’s prescription pills and over 80% of the world’s prescription narcotics; this is NOT a coincidence. This film reveals the relationships between the FDA, big Pharma, physicians and the media that are in place to ensure that medical problems are treated primarily with pills. The horrific consequences that result from this practice results in overuse, abuse and unnecessary deaths. American Addicts is the most important film of 2012 because it could literally save your or a loved one’s life.
