MADRID--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The problem of alcoholism continues to wreak havoc in society and is a family crisis which currently affects millions of homes, causing more than 3 million deaths per year in the world according to the most recent data recorded in a WHO report. The WHO is forecasting a worrying upward trend in alcoholism, and according to this data, every 10 seconds one person in the world dies as a result of harmful consumption of this substance.
In Spain in particular, the current data is alarming. Almost 10% of the population between 15 and 64 years has consumed alcohol on a daily basis over the last 30 days. More significant still, more than 4.5 million Spaniards have practiced “binge drinking” (consumption of 4-5 or more drinks within a 2 hour period) over the last month. In other words, one of every four people who has consumed alcohol over the last month has "binged" on alcohol, according to the most recent EDADES inquiry, published a few days ago by the National Drug Plan.
Despite being a legally accepted and widely consumed drug in our country, it is clear that abusing alcohol, in addition to creating a dependency, is a key factor in the development of more than 200 diseases according to the WHO. These diseases range from psychiatric diseases such as anxiety or depression, to alcoholic cirrhosis or cancer
In these advanced cases, clinical treatment is difficult. One such case is that of a 50 year old man with a daily consumption of 10 units of alcohol over 20 years. Before treating his alcoholism, he suffered from alcoholic liver disease, arterial hypertension, chronic heartburn, COPD, renal lithiasis and insomnia.
Rapid neuroregulation initiates significant changes in the patient's brain, and is a pivotal factor in their recovery.“It involves neural recovery which helps to re-establish cerebral functions which have been altered as a result of substance consumption”, according to the Director of TAVAD, Dr. Juan José Legarda, the creator of these unique advanced treatments for addictions in Spain.
