THE REASON FOR THIS WEB SITE

 

 

Every human is born with instincts. These instincts are regulated by a brain mechanism controlled by genes. These genes come in different forms called alleles. Different people are born with different forms. Some of these alleles are low (hypo) in activity. Low activity regulating genetic alleles turn out to be highly motivating and very low activity alleles cause addictions to drugs which are natural instinct regulating chemical neurotransmitter substitutes and the instinctive behaviors themselves - what I have named Hypoism. Understanding how these genetic alleles work and the brain system they work in leads to a rational approach to addiction prevention, recovery, and helpful public health policies. My book explains all this in detail.

Imagine you were born with a disease that would eventually kill you after causing you and your family years of suffering from a variety of damaging symptoms that both ruined your health and all areas of your life and you were told that you could not be treated until your symptoms had either already killed you or at least brought you to death’s door with both feet on a banana peal – hitting bottom. Moreover, the only treatment available at that point is only about 20% effective or less, for those who get that far, only partially effective at that, and based on superstitious rituals! To add insult to injury you were also blamed and frequently punished for having caused all your symptoms and problems willfully, consciously, antisocially, and maliciously, and told you had to stop all this “self-destructive” behavior with your own willpower or be punished severely. Can you think of any disease that sounds like this one? You would probably say there is no disease that fits these characteristics and that no one would be so cruel as to deal with anyone having such a disease in this way.

Well, I estimate that 65 million people in this country alone with this kind of disease are actually handled this way and no more than a handful of them know they have such a disease. They don’t know about this disease nor do they know that this disease could be diagnosed at birth and that once diagnosed they could begin a process of recovery that would PREVENT all its symptoms and problems. To add insult to injury they are also being kept from knowing about their disease by their government, all disease experts, treatment providers, specialists, the media, and even their own recovery programs who are all actually censoring any information about this disease from the public and are being told that instead they have very different kinds of reasons for their symptoms and problems, all caused by their own willful and self-destructive behavior and character deficiencies.

Is all this possible? It is not only possible but actually exists. The disease is called Hypoism. It causes all addictions and many other symptoms. It’s genetic and in-born. See the list of addictions at bottom of the home page.

This web site is the only place where information can be obtained about this disease, its cause,  prevention of its symptoms, its recovery, and what people can do about it personally and publicly. Besides the book, Hypoic’s Handbook, that goes into the science behind this disease (and debunks all current incorrect theories about its symptoms), the brain mechanism altered by the genetics, and the delineation of the correct form of recovery based on this mechanism (not discussed on the web site because to understand the recovery one needs to understand the disease first), the web site also presents an organization, The National Association for the Advancement and Advocacy of Addicts, the N4A,  where people with this disease can band together in their own interest. Use this information and let others know about it. Support the N4A, the only organization in existence today that  primarily and solely advocates for people with this disease.

You can take the addiction out of the hypoic, but you can't take the Hypoism out of the addict.
