WITHDRAWAL LEVELS OF ADDICTIVE REACTION

Posted by admin

A food of chemical susceptibility usually starts with an addictive type of response, a “high” reaction. In time, however, this usually gives way to increasing periods of illness or depression. Sooner or later, the “down” phases become predominant, and it becomes more and more difficult for the addict to get any stimulation at all from his addictants.

The onset of this predominantly negative period of withdrawals is usually identified by the patient and all concerned as the “onset of the present illness.” This phase of the disease may be preceded, however, by a prolonged period of hyperactivity or other stimulatory symptoms. Even after the withdrawal reactions have become predominant, the individual may still experience periods of elation and stimulation, although less and less frequently.

The negative states, or withdrawal levels of reaction, cover a wide gamut of human ill health. They span both mental and physical diseases, since in actuality these are not distinct, totally separate entities, but rather parts of the same overall spectrum. Because of the many and varied symptoms involved, patients with such withdrawal reactions are frequently tagged “neurotics” by their physicians. Many physicians lack the theoretical framework within which to understand this disease.

In the following chapters, five common problems associated with food and chemical susceptibility are reviewed: headache, arthritis, fatigue, “brainfag,” and depression. Many other common or rare illnesses, however, can be associated with withdrawal reactions. It might be helpful, therefore, before proceeding with specific cases, to review the kinds of withdrawal reactions frequently seen by a clinical ecologist.
