Doctor Speaks about the Narconon Sauna Detox Program



Many addicts, although going through a drug rehab program, find staying clean is virtually impossible even after finishing the treatment. The cravings return, demanding satisfaction. The body and mind cannot resist the intense urge for more drugs or alcohol, and before you know it, the life of drug abuse has started once again. The only way to prevent relapse is to address factors which cause the cravings to take over. This is where Narconon comes in.

Narconon provides a unique method of detoxification for those addicted to drugs or alcohol. For more than forty-five years, Narconon has used the sauna detoxification method developed by L. Ron Hubbard to assist addicts in leaving drugs behind for good.

An Occupational Medicine Specialist, David Root, M.D., was asked to share his experience and knowledge about this effective solution to addiction.

"Narconon is designed to reduce the burden of drugs in the body and thereby reduce the tendency for people to go back on the drugs. They don't feel good when these drugs come out and any time they either fast or they exercise or they get stressed - and it can be stress in a sauna, it can be emotional stress - that tends to mobilize these stored chemicals out of the fat storage. The drug residues come into the blood stream, they circulate around the body and they make people feel bad. When the person feels bad, he figures, 'Well, the way to get over that is to take more drugs.' So he gets back on the drugs--and it's just a vicious circle."

The Narconon New Life Detoxification Program thoroughly flushes out drug residues using a combination of moderate exercise, nutritional supplements and time in a low heat sauna. These residual drugs have been stored in the fatty tissues and remain there, even for years after a person stops using drugs. This effective detox eliminates these poisonous residues and in so doing, clears the body as well as the mind. The person recovering from addiction feels brighter and more alert. After completing this program, recovering addicts often say that their cravings are greatly reduced or have disappeared completely.

Dr. Root adds, "In my professional opinion as a physician who has been using the Hubbard detoxification program in my office for nineteen years, it's far and away the best program available anywhere in this country or elsewhere for helping addicted individuals come off of drugs and staying off."
