Success Story – Matt
“I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder several years ago, and doctors began to prescribe me psych medications to stabilize my behavior, but the medication side effects were life changing. I was having a hard time functioning at work and in life in general as I never felt good about myself and constantly lacked energy. My father discovered Alternative to Meds Center, a place which could taper me down from my meds in order for me to get back to living happily and successfully. When I arrived I saw an orthomolecular doctor that performed some tests and said I had been misdiagnosed and that actually I was hypoglycemic. The doctor also said that many if not all of my issues were a product of too much caffeine, sugar, and white flour. The doctor said if I were to eliminate those things from my diet and began a vitamin regimen I would see dramatic changes in my life. I am so incredibly grateful to Alternative to Meds Center. The best thing I could ever have done for my life is this program."

Do you want to end side effects or other
medication issues, but you fear the effects
of withdrawal or ongoing symptoms?

Alternatives to sedatives are alternative medicines and therapies that do not involve the use of sedating medication. These alternatives produce similar relaxing effects without sedative side effects, risks of addiction, dependency or withdrawal. Alternatives are an excellent choice when a sedative drug is not effective, intolerable or causing a physical dependency. Alternative to Meds Center combines the best aspects of several different types of medicine to form unique and effective sedative alternatives treatment plans.

Prescription drugs are not the only
options; there are other, better choices.

Just like with pharmaceutical drugs, the same natural sedative alternatives will not work for every single person. Thankfully, there are tons of different sedating herbs and natural medicines that have a range of tranquilizing actions, including pain relief ( analgesics ), antidepressant, and anti-anxiety ( anxiolytic ) effects. Numerous herbs produce tranquilizing actions; one herb often produces two or more of the following actions: anti-anxiety, antidepressant, analgesic, and hypnotic. Sedating drugs act on the central nervous system, alternatives to sedatives, unlike centrally acting pharmaceutical drugs, are gentle and mild in activity. In addition to supplementation, vitamin and mineral therapies, removal of toxins, herbs and natural medicines, Alternative to Meds Center provides cognitive behavioral therapy, acupuncture, group counseling, massage, educational courses, and several other healing activities and treatments.

or medication issues alone.
We have scientific answers that can help you.

Sedating herbs are used to treat hypertension, depression, insomnia, sleep disturbances, pain, and anxiety and are also used by practitioners to ease withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs, particularly benzodiazepines. Forms of herbal benzodiazepine alternatives help include passionflower, which has shown to be as effective as some of the sedatives that are in the benzodiazepine family. Passionflower is also antispasmodic and is perfect for people with nervous twitching. Ashwaganda is a perfect herb for stress, it works wonders for people who are agitated or debilitated by stress. Indian snakeroot is an herb used in low doses for hypertension; this herb has complex and many pharmacological effects. These are just some examples of the natural forms of medicine that can be used to relieve symptoms as effectively as prescription drugs do. Alternative to Meds Center also focuses heavily on underlying causes of symptoms and correcting these causal factors.

Our goal is to find and correct the underlying
reasons that are causing the symptoms
which led to sedative use.

Other than all of the natural and herbal sedative alternative medicines, there are several activities that are therapeutic and relaxing that can also be used as alternatives. Massage therapy works wonder for relieving stress, inducing relaxation and pain relief. Yoga is a supremely relaxing and exercising therapy, exercising can be an imperative part of an alternative treatment to sedatives. Exercise allows blood to flow, balance to restore and a release of the natural painkillers within the body; endorphins. Meditation is often be a worthwhile practice to learn for a long term alternative. Mediation allows you to relax and get in touch with your inner self, physically and mentally. Physical therapy, swimming, sitting in a hot tub or sauna, walking and other therapies such as acupuncture should all be explored for effective sedative alternatives.
