To Alternative to Meds Center I am so thankful and I hope that many other individuals take full advantage of the program and everything that it can offer … I’m so happy that I am medication-free and I feel that I’m a totally renewed person.
My name is Matt, I’m 25 and was diagnosed seven years ago with Bi-Polar Disorder, and it was horrible. Doctors began to prescribe me psych medications to stabilize the up and down behavior I was exhibiting but the medication side effects were life changing, I always was tired which even caused me two car accidents when driving to work since I was medicated and so drowsy from those prescription drugs. I was having a difficult time with functioning at my work and difficulties in my life in general since I was never feeling good about myself and was constantly lacking energy.
My father looked on the internet and discovered Alternative to Meds Center, a place which could taper me down from my psychiatric meds in order for me to get my like back to living happily successfully. At first I felt reluctant but then decided I would try it out. So I arrived to Alternative to Meds Center about 6 weeks ago from my home in Michigan.
Upon arrival I saw an Orthomolecular Doctor, Dr. Lesser, who gave me some tests and then said I was misdiagnosed and that actually, I was Hypoglycemic. He also told me that all my problems could be attributed to too much caffeine, white flour, and sugar. The doctor said if all those things were removed from my dietary regimen and if I began a daily vitamin regimen that dramatic changes would be apparent in the way I felt.
I recently completed a 4 week psych med taper from the medications I was on and I had no problems weaning off the medication with the assistance from the staff, exercising and eating a healthy, organic diet. I already notice some very amazing changes; the level of energy I have has doubled or tripled. Now I have been working out every week at least 3 or 4 times and have also started going to classes that help me a lot. My family has told me how much happier and better I sound than when I talked to them on the phone last time. The people here that I have been living with have said that I’m like a completely different individual than who I was after first arriving here and cannot wait to be able to see all of the positive end results when this program is completely finished.
I think that this is great and I’m feeling very excited about getting back to living my life. Now I have the confidence for the very first time that I am able to accomplish great things. I’m so happy that I am medication-free and I feel that I’m a totally renewed person. I can’t believe how deeply the medication affected my life while I was taking it.
To Alternative to Meds Center I am so thankful and I hope that many other individuals take full advantage of the program and everything that it can offer.
