The benefits of a medication may be at least somewhat offset by its side effects.

First off Obesity does not necessarily have to be the result of Food addiction.  The body may have a peculiar reaction to food.  I know someone who gets fat simly by drinking water, even by ealing less food.  That said addiction of any form could be the result of a 'space" in the brain and turning off pleasure centers will not help in that case but it can decrease the feelings of pleasure in other aspects..your laughing your crying your sex drive etc hense one can be plunged into a depression of lack.

For those who have firm faith the best solution to addiction is to refocus on the joys of the none material instead of self, through the recognition that the Higher Being (GOD) has rested an automatic system in you where a cry for help will give a READY answer from him.  Sounds simple but this writer has proven this to be a fact.

For those who fail to see or cannot see this shoulder which God Provides the depression of lack is serious and can only get temporary relief if any at all by being addicted to the so called
"curing drug" with it's many side effects which can damage the body in other ways.

The "space in the brain" will in time be proven to be the tunnel which leads to the light of the Eternal that moves from shoulder to shoulder down to the hands and reflects back to the soul..the healing "oven' of the faithful. This is the way to thier healing
