Alcohol is damaging, not only your body but your soul as well. By recognizing and addressing the effects of alcohol on your body and your faith in God, you can take steps to improve your well-being. Leading a healthier lifestyle is essential to the recovery of both the body and soul through an alcohol treatment center. Connect with God and others struggling in your community and walk the path of forgiveness and wellness.
What are the Effects?
Over time alcohol damages the heart, liver, and pancreas. The alcohol in your blood stretches the muscles on your heart, which can lead to irregular heartbeats, and other problems. The liver is your body’s filtration organ, and by drinking, the liver becomes inflamed and can’t filter toxic substances out of your body. Excessive drinking can also cause emotional stress and can be harmful to your relationships with others and with God.
Alcohol and Cancer
Besides the specific effects on certain body functions, alcoholism is tied to several different cancers. Most of the cancers caused by alcoholism include cancers of the mouth, throat, and liver. By cutting out drinking from your lifestyle, your risk of developing cancer drops significantly. Alcohol weakens your immune system and can make it harder for your body to fight diseases. A change of heart and faith can do wonders for your immune system and help you feel better about yourself.
