The long term effects of alcohol abuse can be life threatening, and if not properly addressed can lead to premature aging and serious health problems. If you are a recovering alcoholic or have been clean for a while, reversing the effects of prolonged alcohol abuse is probably something you are concerned about. Thankfully, there are ways to go about reversing the damaging effects.
One important step in treating health issues caused by alcohol or drug abuse is living a clean lifestyle. This doesn’t only refer to being drug and alcohol free, but giving your body as much nutrient rich and chemical free food as possible to give it the chance to heal properly. Eating a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables, avoiding processed foods and juicing are all great ways to kick start your healing.
Because your liver is one usually the most affected by prolonged alcohol abuse, doing a juice cleanse and drinking a lot of water is important to promote liver health and healing. Flushing out your system of toxins can also help with cravings and aid in your sobriety.
In many cases of prolonged drug abuse, there are many visual effects, such as sores and premature aging. Although these will usually improve some with time and as your system cleans out, in many cases the effects are lasting. The use of cosmetics can help mask some of the long term effects of drugs.
Helping your body heal and repair itself after prolonged alcohol and drug abuse is important. Making sure you eat right, exercise and give your body the nutrients it needs to repair the damage is very important. Drinking a lot of water to flush the toxins out of your system can help your liver heal from the damaging long term effects.
