Stop Drinking and Drugging With This Herb

Scientist on Aug 22, 2010 at Gilead Sciences Inc reported in the Journal of Natural Medicine that an herbal extract from kudzu vine was being developed to treat alcoholism may also help treat cocaine addiction. The study reported Gilead gained the experimental drug last year when it bought CV Therapeutics Inc.

In the field of medicine there is no effective treatment for people addicted to cocaine. Even though despite the deep understand of neurobiology of addictions.

Kudzu is an old remedy for alcoholism that has a long history of use in china. The vine has sprung up across much of the Southeast of the U.S. after being imported to control soil erosion.

The research concluded that the herb could stop rats from giving themselves cocaine. It also prevented relapse after the rats were weaned off cocaine.

Kudzu works by raising the levels of a substance called tetrahydropapaveroline or THP. Cocaine cravings make levels of dopamine, a brain chemical, rise and THP interferes with this.

Pharmaceutical companies are trying to extract the active compound out and create a patentable medication which usually includes side-effects. However, you can take the safer over the counter kudzu herb if your fighting addictions. Always check with a natural health professional before beginning any herb.
