Is there a Chemical reaction that occurs in the brain when someone gets high? Now I will answer this with medical research but I just want to look at it from a COMMON lay person perspective. Common sense tells us that when one becomes drowsy, lethargic, hyper, alertness etc…these are are responses to the brain being affected, whether it’s from extreme tiredness or fright or flight response to a horrifying situation. Autonomic Nervous system response. In each situation NATURAL chemicals called endorphins are released to give a proper response to each given situation.
So what happens when someone takes drugs? These drugs such as, cocaine, opiates, hallucinogens, mimic these natural chemicals that are released in the brain. The user enjoys the chemical reaction therefore seeking to experience over and over again even at the detriment of his or her life. When one is using chemical dependent drug they no longer have a natural control over there PLEASURE center it is not triggered by natural good and wholesome things in the world but only by taking a substance that is short lived and destructive to the individual, physically, mentally and morally.
Unfortunately when the user decides to quit using drugs they experience withdrawal symptoms from the decrease levels of the chemicals in their body and these symptoms are extremely difficult to withstand. Are there any Natural foods that have these chemicals in them? YES…everything that is found in MANS BODY is found in MANS ORIGIN….EARTH AND WATER. There are foods that are high in GABA, that also triggers the dopamine receptors to release the chemical. This is the Natural physical and chemical side of how we plan to treat the BODY of the addict.
