Application of leaves and roots of the European clefthoof

In the treatment of alcoholism using the roots of the European clefthoof, there are two approaches: one is used when a person does not recognize his addiction, and the second, when there is a conscious desire to get rid of alcoholism.

For a person who is being treated by relatives, imperceptibly for himself, they cook such a decoction: one tablespoon of dry European clefthoof root is poured with water and boiled over low heat for 5 minutes. After that, the broth is infused for one hour, filtered, and placed in the refrigerator. The resulting product is poured into alcohol for a person at the rate of one tablespoon of decoction per 200 ml of vodka. "Medicine" causes a person to vomit and the treatment itself is generally based on the development of a reflex of aversion to alcohol, so you will need to add the broth to the alcohol several more times. As practice shows, after 3-4 times alcohol without addition of clefthoof broth will also induce vomiting.

If a person is being treated deliberately, it is desirable that the therapy takes place under the supervision of a physician. The recipe can be used the same. You can prepare such a remedy: one teaspoon of a teaspoon of clefthoof is mixed with two teaspoons of green pericarp of walnut and one teaspoon of this mixture is poured with wine (4 liters), insisted for 2 weeks, 1 glass of 1-2 r / day is drunk before meals. In the course of treatment, the patient feels nausea, tightness in the sternum, is in a painful state, he may periodically start vomiting. All these sensations make a person give up alcohol.
