Addiction: Food, Sugar, Medication

Facebook Live Series #2

Addiction or Dependence Syndrome is defined as:

as being a cluster of physiological, behavioral, and cognitive phenomena in which the use of a substance or a class of substances takes on a much higher priority for a given individual than other behaviors that once had greater value. World Health Organization

Substance abuse refers to the harmful or hazardous use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. Psychoactive substance use can lead to dependence syndrome – a cluster of behavioural, cognitive, and physiological phenomena that develop after repeated substance use and that typically include a strong desire to take the drug, difficulties in controlling its use, persisting in its use despite harmful consequences, a higher priority given to drug use than to other activities and obligations, increased tolerance, and sometimes a physical withdrawal state.

Can tea help with Emotions?
Not exactly. We human beings can be over whelmed with emotion. For some, the thought of being sick can paralyze. If you have fought a cold, virus, or cancer you may have experienced emotional discomfort. Did you know there is scientific evidence for this?
