Antidepressant medications generally are administered prior to any substantial medical investigations or lifestyle interventions, and almost no consideration given to what Celexa alternatives and Celexa withdrawal might look like.
Depression can be the result of impaired hormonal states, deficiency of Vitamin D, substandard diet, adrenal fatigue, lack of exercise, failed life aspirations, and other factors other than a medication deficiency.
Are you really your Diagnosis?
Alternative to Meds Center has been primarily invested in medication withdrawal for over 15 years. Using Holistic and Environmental Medicine, we have published evidence demonstrating that over 77% of people discontinuing antidepressant medication and replacing them with a holistic lifestyle perform symptomatically better than they were while medicated.
15 Year Experience by Professionals Who Understand Your Journey.
At Alternative to Meds Center, we know methods of Celexa alternatives help that are better solutions than living life medicated with Celexa, also known as Citalopram.
This medication may work for some people; however, many other people are more interested in Celexa substitutes. This medication can present with intolerable Celexa side effects include fatigue, sleep disturbances, and nausea. In such situations and for individuals who would prefer it if they could avoid prescription medications; natural effective antidepressant alternatives for the treatment of depression or other symptoms are available. Some individuals are able to recover from their depression through talking over their problems with a therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist. Talk-therapy is another phrase for this approach. Natural medicines, supplements, nutrients and eating healthy can make all of the difference in depression. Lifestyle changes such as exercise can also have major impacts on depression. Our rehab can help you to customize an alternative to Celexa treatment plan.
Talk-therapy is not the only therapy, as there are many types available. A cognitive-behavioral therapist using the cognitive approach assists clients in understanding the maladaptive thinking patterns which might underlie their behavior and provides effective ideas to correct them. A counselor who is employing the interpersonal therapy approach, on the other hand, focuses more on the relationships the person has with those around him or her, such as the parents, friends, spouse, boss or coworkers, and how relations can be improved. And the iconic vision of psychotherapy with an individual lying on a comfortable couch talking with their therapist about topics such as childhood experiences is the psychodynamic approach. This approach seeks more to identify how the elements of childhood may be playing out in the individual’s adult life.
Considerations In Selecting Celexa Alternatives
Lifestyle changes are important factors in successful Citalopram antidepressant alternatives. For example, being deprived of sleep is likely to make you feel run down and in a funk. When an individual is treating their body well, it is likely to lift their mood. If one wants to sustain a positive life outlook, these changes in lifestyle should be adopted. Getting adequate sleep, eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and foods that are high in protein and low in fat is a great nutritional place to start with Citalopram alternatives. Effective antidepressant alternatives are usually a whole circle of healing activities and habits, rather than just one. Spend some time to share your thoughts with your friends and family. Keep stress, tension, or depression handled by avoiding situations that are nerve-wracking for you, or employing techniques for relaxation such as yoga and meditation. Our drug cessation program can help you learn naturally effective ways of relieving stress and overcoming depression with Celexa alternatives help.
A person is most often put on Celexa prior to any adequate efforts being put forth to investigate why the person is depressed. Are they really only suffering from a low-serotonin level and no other reasons why? What about if their thyroid is low? What if they have accumulated a collection of environmental neurotoxins like toxic heavy metals which destroy the metabolism of energy? Or food allergies where internal swelling substantially slows metabolism may also be a major factor.
The individual’s diet may be so poor in nutrition that they can’t produce what they need for brain health. We may forget that our brain is a victim to the same abuse of a poor diet that the physical body would suffer from. Or maybe they are surrounded in an unsatisfying life and need an environment that is more supportive to make positive life changes. Most people begin taking this antidepressant during an emotionally traumatic time, and several years later many individuals still are taking the drug and suffering Celexa side effects. Alternative to Meds Center rehab focuses on discovering the real medical reasons why an individual might be depressed. Our Celexa alternatives program includes the use of lab testing, natural substances to stabilize the neurochemistry, cessation from neurotoxins that have been accumulated environmentally, peer support, IV amino therapy, targeted nutritional treatments, massage, yoga, exercise, and holistic therapies to combat depression.
We facilitate successes and great victories on a daily basis in our drug cessation program at Alternative to Meds Center. Graduations are held each week in order to celebrate participant triumphs. Their friends and family members are included in the approximate 50 people who attend each of these events. During the graduations, we often hear some unbelievable stories, in which people recount years or even several decades of outrageous struggling; told now with clarity that is remarkable. It is inspirational to us when we see our participants graduating the program with ability to maintain their lives in happy healthy ways, and keep on acting as an inspiration to other people. We ask that you call us so we can talk, and so you gain a better understanding about the Celexa alternatives help that’s available.
