Since 1964 the use of benzodiazepines in this country has exploded to epidemic proportions. Librium, the first discovered, became known as "mothers little helper" and prescriptions for these "tranquilizers" were soon in the millions per year.
People began to expect a pill to solve their problems of worry and anxiety and we soon stopped "solving" our problems and took drugs to change the way we felt. No one knew or expected that the use of these pharmaceuticals would one day create a monster of a problem linked to their use.

support for the natural
replenishment of neurotransmitters depleted by the long-term use of tranquilizers or benzodiazepines."
As patients took these drugs for longer periods of time and then attempted to stop they were confronted with terrible psychological and physiological withdrawal symptoms which incapacitated them.
People in withdrawal have lost jobs, families, their very lives as the extreme anxiety, sleeplessness, confusion, heart problems and other extreme withdrawal factors prevented them from interacting in society in any meaningful manner.
Even patients who attempted to very slowly taper their dosages and gradually withdraw from this dependency experienced some degree of discomfort and the difficulty remained for months and years after use.
While these people were no longer "dependent" on the benzodiazepine they continued to suffer protracted withdrawal and a significant degree of disability.
Over the years even more potent benzodiazepines have been developed with the result that even more debilitating withdrawal is now evident.
Long term use of benzodiazepines results in the reduction of certain normal neurotransmitter availability, mainly those which are associated with the Gamma Amino Butyric Acid, GABA, receptor site.
As the GABA brain site is continuously provided with drugs which mimic the configuration and action of normal neurotransmitters the brain begins to reduce their production in favor of the easily available medication.
These drugs, while effective for short-term relief of acute anxiety, produce significant withdrawal difficulties if used for more than 2 - 4 weeks as recommended by the manufacturers.
Recently, persons who were familiar with NeuroGenesis products and successes with nutritional supplements ask that we look at the "benzo" problem and determine if we could help those suffering with this dependency with a nutritional supplement.
The result of our study was a product we call . . . Neu-Relieve™ (previously called NeuRecover-BZ)
Beginning in September, 2002 . . . thirty-five men and women from various localities in the United States agreed to participate in a blind, placebo controlled study to evaluate the effectiveness of Neu-Relieve in reducing the withdrawal symptoms associated with recovery from use of benzodiazepines.
Participants were given either a placebo (inert ingredients) or Neu-Relieve™, each for a one-month period, and did not know which they were receiving.
No one reported better effects with placebo . . .
And 9 out of 10 reported reduced withdrawal symptoms with Neu-Relieve™.
As previously stated this supplement has been shown to reduce the acute and protracted withdrawal symptoms, which make the recovery process so difficult.
