Tribe Sober - inspiring an alcohol-free life!

My guest this week is US integrative doctor - Dr Grace

A self confessed "science geek" Dr Grace has a deep knowledge of how the body can function at its very best

She's the perfect person to help us understand how we can repair our bodies and minds after years of alcohol abuse.

In this Episode

  • Dr Grace believes in optimal gut function and repair as the foundation of good health
  • She explains how alcohol damages the gut and produces acidity - making us more prone to diseases like cancer
  • Alcohol harms our brains as well as our bodies - and actually decreases our brain plasticity
  • It causes our estrogen levels to increase and that's why it's linked to breast cancer
  • The best thing we can do for our health is to stop drinking - that should be the foundation of our good health
  • We discussed how we can rebuild our health in early recovery - one of the most important things is an alkalising diet
  • We need supergreen smoothies and fermented foods like kaffir, yoghourt, kimchi and sauerkraut
  • Fermented foods will help our bodies to absorb vitamins and will also help with sugar cravings we get when we quit drinking
  • Stevia is a very sweet plant - a few drops of Stevia in our tea will satisfy cravings
  • Alcoholics are always dehydrated - every glass of wine robs your body of 4 glasses of water - so drink lots of water
  • If you are feeling low in early sobriety due to loss of dopamine then take a 5HTP supplement which should lift your mood.
