The Ill-Effects of Alcohol

Poison

The word “intoxicate” means to poison or be affected by a drug or alcohol where physical and mental control is greatly compromised.

A name describes the purpose, function, and activity of something. An intoxicant is a poison. Wine, like other spirits, is a poison. Poison has no place in the human body because it impairs good health and eventually kills or destroys life.

The etymological root of the word intoxicant tells us that wine, an intoxicant, is a poison. Many people drink wine on a weekly basis and will proudly tell you that drinking a glass of wine makes them feel good. Others will tell you that drinking wine is good or healthy for them. A person who consumes alcohol on a regular basis may tell you this in order to justify the habit of drinking alcohol.

Some people have told me that their doctor told them that drinking wine is good for the heart. If wine is poisonous, then how can it be beneficial to the heart? The heart actually had to work harder and faster to speed up the flow of blood, causing toxemia and high blood pressure. Toxins can lodge in the heart area for a substantial amount of time and possibly kill the person.

The human heart requires clean, unadulterated blood.

Dangers

Wine desensitizes you, causing you to forget about your worries and woes. It dulls your senses and lets you escape from your normal thoughts.

Ironically, drinking wine or other intoxicants can often make matters worse. Overconsumption of alcohol can result in dangerous and life-threatening situations. Dulling your mind down can’t or won’t help you to solve a problem.

You must be in your right, natural state of mind to successfully tackle a challenge.

Rather than being under the influence of their own minds, drunk or inebriated people are under the influence of alcohol.

Many arguments are caused by overconsumption of alcohol. It makes us shout and talk loud in a boisterous manner. Many college women are raped weekly due to an overconsumption of alcohol.

Pathologies

Consuming too much wine can cause many pathologies. Its harmful effects include:

  • Pollutes the blood.
  • Toxifies the liver, and causes the eyes to become bloodshot red.
  • Corrodes the kidneys and bladder due to its high acidity.
  • Causes chemical dependency and many neurological disorders.
  • Increases the chance of yeast infections in women.
  • Destroys the pancreas gland and is implicated in pancreatic cancer.
  • Impairs liver function and causes a host of hepatic diseases, mainly cirrhosis of the liver.
  • The chemicals found in wine corrode the brain cells and greatly impair cognition and memory, as well as impair mental coordination.
  • Implicated in female infertility and frigidity.
  • Causes birth defects in unborn babies.
  • Plays a pivotal role in male impotence.

European Wine

Some wine addicts who love drinking wine and do not want to give it up, simply start drinking European wine from Italy or France due to the health benefits surrounding the French Paradox of wine drinking. The French eat high amounts of dairy products but don’t have the high incidence of heart disease associated with consuming large amounts of dairy products, mainly cheese, like Americans do.

The French drink a lot of wine that is pressed with the grape seeds intact, unlike American wine, which is not pressed with grape seeds and has strong antioxidant capabilities. The French say that moderate wine consumption appears to slow down low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol oxidation and inhibit the blood’s tendency to clot.

Grape seeds are a powerful source of antioxidants but it is still not a good enough reason to dink wine. Taking grape seed extract is a healthier way to enjoy the health benefits of grape seeds.

Labeling

In America, the most popular legalized drugs include, but are not limited to, sugar, salt, cigarettes, coffee, and alcohol. People who drink wine, beer, and spirits don’t mind that the ingredients are not even listed or printed on the bottle or can, much less the process by which they are manufactured.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requires labeling of ingredients on all consumable products such as food, beverages and medicine. When it comes to alcohol and cigarettes, there are exceptions to the rule.

Recognizing the tax potential of alcoholic beverages, Congress delegated the regulation of alcohol to the Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). The TTB regulates the labels of all alcoholic products. The labeling rules differ between wine, beer and distilled spirits.

  • For distilled spirits, the percent of alcohol must appear on the label. For wine, the rules depend on the percent of alcohol.
  • Wines that contain 7 to 14 percent alcohol are required to list the amount of alcohol.
  • Wines that contain less than 7 percent alcohol are under Food and Drug Administration regulation, not TTB. Nutrition Fact labels with calories, nutrients, and actual ingredients are required. However, they are not required to disclose percent alcohol.
  • Substances that may cause sensitivity to people must be labeled. Includes sulfites and yellow No.5.
  • Natural Solutions

    Detoxify the body on a cellular level. Herbs such as Dandelion, Burdock, Chaparral, Echinacea, and Oregon Grape are excellent blood cleansers. Milk thistle seeds, Boldo leaves, and Artichoke will greatly cleanse and repair the liver. Uva Ursi, Cornsilk, and Juniper berries will detoxify the kidneys and bladder. Stevia leaf, Jambul seeds, Licorice root, and Gymnema Sylvestre will eradicate the sugar craving and desire. Licorice sticks can be chewed on daily, in addition to drinking a cup or two of Licorice root tea.

    Kudzu root will help rebalance blood sugar that wine throws off, and will neutralize the acidity of the body caused by wine. The anti-alcohol effects of daidzin, one of Kudzu’s flavanoids, make it a specific for recovery from alcoholism.

    Another important and powerful herb to eradicate alcoholism and winebibbing is Carbon, also known as activated charcoal. It will neutralize every harmful chemical in the human body.

    And undoubtedly, the greatest and most effective herb overall that would not only cure alcoholism, but would also cure every other kind of drug addiction, is the great African herb Tabernathe Iboga while banned in the United States, the Iboga plant helps to cure Africans and all other peoples of drug addictions. Once inside your body, Iboga creates a distaste of the drug you are addicted to. The momentum for Iboga is picking up, especially in Canada and Europe, but no so for the United States.
