Video Transcript: “Probably 2008 or 2009, here I am going through withdrawal, on the computer going what in the hell can I take to make this better? That’s when I learned about the Thomas Recipe which is a blend of six different things. It’s either Valium or another benzodiazepine with Imodium, so that’s for the anxiety insomnia restlessness, and even to some extent the muscle tension soreness, lack of appetite, and even also for depression for some people.
Imodium A-D which are the generic Loperamide HCL which actually acts as an opioid agonist on the myenteric plexus of the large intestine, so it stops all the opioid withdrawal, diarrhea, and stomach cramping and you have like no appetite and nausea. It’s really cool if you take that in the right dosage. So, it’s like your stomach (and) your digestive system is not going through the opioid withdrawal-induced… What’s the word I’m looking for… Ah! “Rebound effect”. the opioids induce constipation, and when you go through an acute opioid withdrawal, instead of going back to normal, you’ve been constipating, so there’s a rebound effect and thus you get the opposite of constipation which is diarrhea.
And then there’s a multivitamin-mineral, high in potassium you take, hot baths and then finally, l-tyrosine. So, l-tyrosine is something that in the Thomas recipe you add in around day five after the acute withdrawal’s over. That’s if you’re coming off short-acting opioids but it really helps like super good at dopamine that helps to lift the opioid withdrawal malaise, the fatigue, the depression.”
