Benzodiazepine Alternatives

Benzodiazepine Alternatives

Alternative to Meds Center recognizes that there are benzodiazepine alternatives and other resolutions for mental health problems than lifelong benzodiazepine use.


For people who struggle with anxiety or other related disorders and cannot tolerate benzodiazepines side effects, risks of addiction, or are non-responsive to treatment with these drugs; benzodiazepine alternatives can change your life. At Alternative to Meds Center, we provide benzodiazepine alternatives help that allows people to comfortably taper off anxiety medication and transition into using natural alternatives to benzodiazepines. We work to find and correct the underlying reasons that are causing the symptoms which resulted in being medicated.

Talking with a counselor, or support group, to openly discuss your feelings and find empowerment will encourage you to stay positive and allow you to connect with others that you can verbally express your feelings with. Through counseling you can start to challenge your anxiety, rationalize your negative thoughts and fears and learn to accept uncertainty. Focusing on diet and nutrition is very important in benzodiazepine alternatives treatment, including drinking plenty of water and avoiding things like caffeine. Nutrient deficiencies have also been found to contribute to mental disorders such as anxiety. Through nutrition, vitamins and supplements, these deficiencies can be corrected and make big differences in how we feel.

Herbal remedies, orthomolecular medicine and natural therapies are often beneficial for people with anxiety, insomnia, depression and other mental health conditions. Alternative to Meds Center combines the necessary aspects of traditional medicine with the commonly overlooked aspects of holistic treatment to provide an integrative mental health approach. Unlike traditional doctors, practitioners who focus on the physiology of the brain are more likely to be better equipped to recommend the right alternative mental health treatments. Benzodiazepine alternative treatment modalities often include more than just one therapy. There are several tools that can be utilized as natural alternatives to benzodiazepines to help people overcome anxiety without prescription drugs. Complex treatment programs are customized for each client’s success.

Through cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), a type of talk therapy, you can learn how to undo negative and anxious thinking patterns and replace them with more positive and rational outlooks. When you start to feel anxious or get into a negative thought pattern, you can ask yourself if there is a better way to look at this situation. Other important parts of benzo alternatives include learning how to relax, relieving stress in healthy ways, and there are many easy, positive ways to achieve relaxation. Meditation is something we all do every day whether we realize it or not, as everyone practices meditation in their own way, and this is undoubtedly a wonderful exercise to practice on a conscious level regularly. Meditation is calming, balancing and tends to put things in perspective.

We use natural, scientific and drug-free approaches to balance brain function. We provide  the following methods for benzodiazepine alternatives help: lab testing, deep breathing skills, yoga, massage, acupuncture, sauna therapy, swimming, aromatherapy, biofeedback, counseling, dietary adjustments, and comprehensive nutrient therapies. Through talk therapy, lab testing and alternative to psychiatry methods, we can discover where your anxiety stems from and help you get rid of anything that no longer serves you. The benzodiazepine alternatives treatment that is commonly most successful is one that finds the real underlying reasons that cause symptoms of anxiety and personalizes treatment on an individual basis.

Underlying causes of anxiety can include neurotoxins, toxins; can build up in an individual’s system over their lifetime. The toxins can produce over-stimulated nervous system effects. A good example is pesticides. Pesticides are created to kill insects, such as grasshoppers, and works in this way: The toxin is absorbed into the exoskeleton, and then it finds its way into the nervous system. A pesticide will cause acetylcholine nervous system channels to remain open, not allowing the channels to be closed. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that is stimulating and it will cause a grasshopper to jump. Constant release of acetylcholine puts the grasshopper into catatonia and death. This is the way pesticides kill pests. Accumulation of this toxin occurs very similarly in humans, as the nervous system uses acetylcholine for stimulation also. Other toxins such as heavy metals, mold MSG mycotoxins, aspartame, and literally there are thousands of other chemicals in processed food and hygiene products that have similar effects. Our goal is to teach clients to be their own experts on mental health.

We find that in the majority of cases of chronic anxiety, there is an accumulation of neurotoxins including toxic heavy metals in the anxious individual which are over-stimulating their nervous system. Add to that increasing demand at work, foundering relationships, and other external stressors, it can be too overwhelming. Often this is where the person is at when prescribed anti anxiety medication. This is our most common class of medications addressed, as unsupported benzo discontinuation can be very difficult. We can help you get off benzodiazepines with little discomfort and live without ongoing anxiety or the need for medication.

Our methods may be diverse for this specific type of medication, but they include very careful medication withdrawal and taper techniques, neurotoxin removal, peer support, natural substances to create neurochemical support, orthomolecular nutrition, and many beneficial alternative mental health treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and sauna which are designed to induce relaxation and stability. We can offer help with Ativan alternatives, Klonopin alternatives, Xanax alternatives, Clonazepam alternatives, and other medication alternatives. Our scientific approach to discontinuing medication and stabilizing brain function has helped thousands of people become mentally healthy. We invite you to call us for antidepressant alternatives help.
