At Alternative to Meds Center, lab testing identifies when toxicity is the culprit. We then focus on clearing these toxins out. Our program aims to use natural substances and orthomolecular medicine to normalize and stabilize neurochemistry.
Saphris alternatives provide clients at the Alternative to Meds Center the means to utilize other solutions to treat mental health other than a lifetime trapped in a repeating loop of repeated hospitalizations and antipsychotic medications.
Why do we recommend considering alternatives to antipsychotic medications such as Saphris? Studies have shown that patients have achieved major progress from light therapies such as talk therapy in a supportive environment. Dr. Peter Breggin and other holistic doctors have voiced decades of disagreement against the overwhelming use of toxic drugs. Despite advertising claims that psychiatric drugs are both cheap and efficient, nothing could be further from the truth.
Antipsychotic medications can have many sideeffects that turn life into a waking nightmare. Indeed, antipsychotics can make mental conditions worse rather than better, especially over the long term. As well, prescribing these medications to children puts them at great risk. Records show that one of the known sideeffects in the first weeks of treatment with Saphris and similar antipsychotic drugs is suicidal thoughts or actual suicide attempts.
For these reasons, Alternative to Meds Center provides alternative antipsychotic treatments such as:
- individual counselling
- cognitive behavioral therapy
- exposure therapy
- and much more.
People who call us want to find out how to overcome the sideeffects of antipsychotic medications that pose dangerous risks to health. Because of these sideeffects, many individuals just don’t want to be medicated. A growing body of research demonstrates that children and adults can overcome many mental disorders without being prescribed psychotropic drugs. Many holistic practitioners would rather try alternatives to psychiatric treatments before resorting to prescribing drugs. Unfortunately, however, it is often the reverse. Patients are usually prescribed a psychiatric medication first, and then they seek Saphris alternatives when the drug fails to help them.
No one has to or wants to suffer from side effects such as dependence, becoming addicted, and the horrors of medication withdrawal syndrome. Alternative mental health options do provide nondrug based mental health treatment options. A Saphris alternative treatment plan usually contains more than just one treatment. Treatment plans can combine several or many different therapies.
Through talk therapy of various kinds, patients can honestly express themselves, come to understand their fears and identify and prevent triggers from knocking them down over and over again. CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) can help patients to create new strategies and rethink past negative patterns. Patients can gradually work towards a much more complete internal peace.
Talk therapy of a light nature is just one of many available alternatives to Saphris and other antipsychotic drugs. Such therapies used in conjunction with other stabilizing treatments, bring about successful outcomes. Holistic (drugfree) Saphris alternatives are safe and sound treatment choices to consider.
The Alternative to Meds Center provides these alternative treatments along with dietary changes, nutritional therapy, and other lifestyle changes. Additional treatments such as exercise, yoga, massage, chelation, aromatherapy, acupuncture, therapeutic massage, chelative sauna detox, meditation and other holistic treatments support the person's overall progress. Also, supplements can make substantial improvements in overall health.
In fact, research shows that nutritional deficiencies are often an overlooked contributor to mental disorders. Identifying and fixing deficits can produce amazing results all on their own. Saphris alternative treatments include purging toxic residues from antipsychotic drugs or other sources which have accumulated in the body.
Eliminating certain things from one's lifestyle can also contribute to overcoming mental disorders, such as:
- recreational drugs, alcohol
- refined flour products
- stimulants such as caffeine
- use of sugar
- preservatives and additives found in processed foods
- cleaning compounds which contain neurotoxic chemicals
- and much more.
The program at ATMC encourages the client to practice better lifestyle choices every day. For some people, it may be counseling once a week, exercising several times a week, eating healthy organic foods every day, drinking plenty of chemical free water, taking a daily supplement or vitamin, getting enough sleep every night and participating in healing therapies such as personal counseling, meditation, yoga or massage.
Doctors usually prescribe psychiatric medication after the person has suffered a psychotic episode, or after problems related to medications have surfaced. These drugs may seem to work during the onset of symptoms. Though, they are not well tolerated after prolonged use. Could there be a better overall approach?
The common denominator of psychosis and psychotic episodes is excessive Dopamine. Dopamine is the neurochemical that provides the feelings associated with reward and pleasure. Too much dopamine causes everything in the environment to overstimulate the person, which results in a manic state, also called mania or psychosis.
What precipitates the overproduction of dopamine?
Research shows that neurotoxins stimulate the overproduction of Dopamine. We also know this overstimulation causes mania or psychosis to present. With more research, we can also learn how a genetic problem may play a part.
At Alternative to Meds Center, lab testing identifies when toxicity is the culprit. We then focus on clearing these toxins out. Our program aims to use natural substances and orthomolecular medicine to normalize and stabilize neurochemistry. Body detoxification will remove environmentally accumulated neurotoxins. The center provides safe and comfortable medication withdrawal methods, IV therapy with amino acids and other targeted nutritional treatments. Peer support, yoga, personal training, massage, and other alternative mental health therapies offer additional treatment options.
You may be looking for a treatment plan that does not seek to use toxic drugs which can only temporarily mask symptoms. We invite your call, so you can talk to us and find out more about tailored treatment plans we provide if you or your loved one is seeking Saphris alternatives.
