Treatment for Benzodiazepine Withdrawal

Treatment for Benzodiazepine Withdrawal

Treatment for benzodiazepine withdrawal at the Alternative to Meds Center begins with a foundation of Orthomolecular Medicine.


That foundation, blended with other holistic measures such as Environmental Medicine, allows our clients to improve health while they are tapering from prescription drugs such as benzodiazepines. And the new techniques they learn can continue to provide health improvements long after they leave the program.

We help our clients to re-establish healthy natural neurochemistry. We do this using plant-based, non-addictive nutritional supplements. Knowing what exact supplements are needed, when and in what amounts, is discovered and individually planned for each client.

Designing the individual's schedule for supplements is based in part on lab testing and upon other assessments done at the start and throughout their recovery program. We feel it is essential to educate the client on what they are taking and how it will support and benefit their recovery from prescription drugs. That is why education is another substantial part of the program.

As the client progresses through their program steps, the nutritional protocols change commensurate with the body's new states of health that emerge. After completing the program, our clinicians design a supplement regimen which can be purchased and used when the client goes home. There need not be any interruption in the continuing healing process as a person returns to their day to day living.

Environmental Medicine

There is not much point in putting supplements into a body that is so full of toxins that it cannot absorb or utilize them. For this reason, the program includes a full body cleanse, targetting the removal of accumulated toxins in the body. Heavy metals are known for their neurotoxic damage, so these make significant targets for removal. Other substances, such as pesticides, air and water pollutants, food preservatives, are some of the other common neurotoxins that testing reveals.

During the toxin removal process, supplementation, exercise, and low-temperature sauna provide the means for purging toxic load from the body. Supplements called conjugators are given that turn fat-soluble toxins into a water-soluble, non-toxic form, and then these toxic elements can be safely eliminated through sweat in the sauna, and through the excretory system. Chelators help bind to heavy metals trapped in the body and escort them for elimination.

Clients typically report being able to sleep better, enjoy improved appetite, and feel a reduction in anxiety and depression after finishing the toxin removal process. It is at this point that the medication taper can begin. Tapering is done gently, safely and under medical supervision.

Additional Therapies Used in the Treatment for Benzodiazepine Withdrawal

At the Alternative to Meds Center, we realize that improvements in health can be supported in a multitude of ways while tapering from medications.

Some examples of the many holistic treatments we offer in the program include:

  • Castor oil packs for improved blood/lymphatic circulation, reduced inflammation, cleansing the liver, helps constipation.
  • Nebulized glutathione, the master antioxidant given in vapor form, removes toxins, protects against radiation, and provides many other benefits.
  • Ionic foot baths can help even the most fragile program participant to experience the benefits of toxin removal.
  • Bentonite clay masks absorb waste (such as harmful toxins), oil and dirt from the body, provide nourishing minerals, reduce cellulite and wrinkles and more.
  • Targetted nutritional therapy provides the nutrients needed to correct deficiencies and imbalances, especially after toxin removal increases cellular absorption.
