Abrahamson is Israel’s leading clinic in the field of weaning off sugar and gluten, thanks to our 30 years of experience, and the thousands of people who hear of us by word of mouth, come to us, are successfully weaned, lose weight and live healthy lives. Most diets provide solutions for the symptoms of being overweight – usually diets don’t treat the causes. The treatment reduces the urge to eat sugar and gluten, and people who have undergone it are apathetic to eating sweet foods. The results speak for themselves – just a few days after beginning treatment people feel greater alertness and concentration, need fewer hours of sleep, and some report an improvement in their general feeling and mood. The price of the treatment sessions is £450, and the price unconditionally includes unlimited additional sessions as necessary for a year. We operate a guidance and support system which is unrivalled in Israel, a detoxification centre, and a staff providing nutritional guidance; we distribute recipe books and hold cookery and baking workshops. The program includes complete use of our range of services for a year.
The choice to stop smoking usually doesn’t come at the same time as other important life events. The process of stopping smoking is intrinsically made up of both psychological and physiological processes that are very difficult for us to deal with, especially against the day-to-day pressures that confront us constantly.
Physiologically – Our bodies are addicted – addicted to substances put into the body consistently over years. Through high school, military service, traveling to the Far East, work, university education and starting a family, all of these life stages have been accompanied by cigarettes and their addictive substances.
Psychologically – The automatic conditioning that we have accustomed ourselves to; the hand movements, the deep inhalations, the oxygen we take in with each puff, the habits of cigarettes with coffee, while driving, after meals and after sex – it seems that everywhere we have conditioned ourselves to be psychologically addicted to taking out a cigarette automatically. We take one out and light one up systematically and consistently. And let’s not forget when we realize it’s our last one. We start to get anxious as we think where to buy more at 2:00 am, even it means getting up, out of the house, into the car and finding an open kiosk at the other end of the city in order to answer our urge. This is the essence of addiction.
