Our amitriptyline antidepressant withdrawal treatment program guides a person through every step of getting off amitriptyline. We use natural substances and nutrients to minimize symptoms and stabilize the neurochemistry. We provide biochemical corrections that may be contributing to depressive or other symptoms. When administered correctly, nutrients and natural substances can completely restore a system that is depleted after using antidepressants and after being exposed to other chemicals and toxins. We aim to minimize withdrawal from amitriptyline and provide recommendations for dietary needs as well as items that should be eliminated to make withdrawal treatment more comfortable. Rather than adding other unnecessary medications as an attempt to decrease withdrawal symptoms, we use an approach that is natural and non-drug-based. With combined medical and natural approaches, you can become amitriptyline-free and experience natural mental health.

How can a person overcome depression?

The Alternative to Meds Center program focuses on discovering the root reasons which may have caused an individual to feel depressed and why they began using antidepressant drugs to begin with. We use cognitive behavioral therapy, which lets individuals comfortably analyze and decide better or different ways for people to get into alignment with their true desire or life’s purpose, something that, if missing, has often led to depression for some people. People are usually put on antidepressants before there was any adequate amount of investigation as to why they have become depressed. Our program uses lab testing to find medical reasons for depression. We also provide methods for stabilization of neurochemistry with nutrients, as well as amino acid therapies, colonics, targeted nutritional therapies, cleansing of accumulated environmental neurotoxins. Clients also enjoy nebulized glutathione treatments, bentonite clay packs, support from peers, massage, yoga, personal training, exercise, Equine-assisted therapy, and many other adjunctive therapies to significantly soften amitriptyline withdrawal treatment.
