Low Dose Lithium Improves Chronic Alcohol Problems
As the old song goes: 'I get feeling better when I'm feel no pain'. So, what does alcohol do, and why do so many people get 'caught up' drinking so much? As with many conditions, circumstances and the patient's history, including family history direct us to the root cause for the situation. Next at 7,000 feet, alcohol has 3 times the affect that it does at sea level: it’s easier to get in ‘over your head’. For some people, this is why they have an even harder time in the ‘high desert’.
When we talk about 'history' affecting people we mean: their personal history, their family history, AND the the history of humankind. In researching this third kind of history we find some crucial insights which allow us to understand why certain conditions exist today. Centuries ago, in this country, or in certain third world countries to this day, there exist a first group of people who attack other groups of people, and they steal, rape, rob, and kill the second group: this is how the 1st group survives. The 1st group provides no service, they provide no product. Given these facts, most people would not want to be in the 2nd group (the one attacked). Given these circumstances, certain genetic features evolved in some people, allowing them to stay awake for the entire night (to sound the alarm and to repel the attack at 2 a.m.) when everyone else was sound asleep.

Who are these experts?
This is a highly unlikely scenario. Lithium is used to treat serious disorders. While is a very effective treatment, it is not a safe one.
There are many side effects and those who are unfortunate enough to need Lithium, have to take routine blood tests to make sure that the levels are not too high and its not destorying the liver.
Lithium is a medication that needs to be respected. They would never put it in a drinking water supply.
Americans are the dumbest group of monkeys fluttering around on this planet.
