What BIOTYPE are you when it drinking?

Alcohol Metabolism – the 5 alcohol biotypes:

Biotype 1.

Suffers from the unpleasant effects of acetaldehyde poisoning. Therefore this biotype can quite easily develop problem drinking over time. This is because his/her tolerance to alcohol increases and his consumption rises to meet the demand, his brain is eventually forced to adapt to the acetaldehyde by product made by the liver. But instead of acting as a drinking deterrent, acetaldehyde mixes with neurotransmitters in the brain to form addictive morphine-like substances called THIQ’S and anxiety- causing substances called THBC’S. This causes an addiction to alcohol

Biotype 2

Is allergic to grapes, grains and amyl alcohols phenols or ‘congeners’ in alcohol and addicted to the opioid-like substances they free in the brain resulting in a short term high followed by bad physical withdrawal. They experience depression, aggression or crying spells and allergic toxic withdrawals the morning after. This biotype may also develop cravings for alcohol after exposure to stimulant chemicals like petrol, formaldehyde; printer’s ink and hydrocarbons with activate the same processes in the brain as the alcohol

Biotype 3

Would suffer with a lifelong depression resulting from a genetically low level of the neurotransmitter prostaglandin E1(PGE1). Alcohol drinks stimulate the release of PGE1 which temporarily lifts the low mood until brain stores are depleted and depression returns. The rebound depression that follows is often worse than before because alcohol frustrates his body’s naturally slow production of fresh PGE1 which has to be made by the body from omega 6 essential fatty acid.

(This person may crave crisps or other fatty acid sources)

Biotype 4

The hypoglycemic person who is addicted to the sugars in alcohol because his body ordinarily produces too much insulin in response to sugar in the drink, which starves his brain of the glucose it needs. Feeling a rapid lift after drinking from the sugar, followed shortly thereafter by and exaggeration in his original hypoglycemic symptoms: light headedness, spaciness, confusion, weakness, sleepiness and lack of co-ordination. Consequently he gets very hungry after drinking and has a low tolerance for alcohol, with severe hangovers. He is often mistaken for an out of control drinker.

Biotype 5

This person inherits a genetic defect in the Dopamine D2 inhibitory auto-receptor and possible other receptors in the brain. This has been dubbed ‘reward deficiency syndrome’ and results in an increased likelihood of addictive behaviors that temporarily raise dopamine, such as drinking and risk taking. This group contains many of the seriously committed alcoholics, often incorporated with traits from other groups.

This groups’ behavior depends on their genetic tendencies to one of four dopamine receptor genes called the A1, A2, A3 and A4 alleles. Biotype 5 is made up of the risk takers, gamblers, sexually promiscuous, compulsive overeaters, drug takers and alcoholics who may show a lifelong tendency to antisocial behavior, conduct disorders, violent behavior and criminal tendencies
