Finally, there is a facility that can successfully help a person navigate comfortably through medication tapering using Citalopram alternatives in a health-restoring way.  

Certainly, medication may have played a role during a hurried doctor’s visit, or desperate time of crisis, however, often medication such as Citalopram does not prove to be a permanent solution when alternatives to citalopram may serve a person better in so many ways.

Why Choose Citalopram Alternatives?

citalopram alternatives / natural alternatives to citalopramIt may seem from reading learned textbooks on psychiatric drugs in the modern age that drugs create mental health. Where did that idea ever come from? It is a point many will discuss for a long time. Nonetheless, there are many justifications for using drugs for mental health, but in simple terms, SSRI drugs are designed to “flood the engine” in the brain. In other words, the serotonin receptors get flooded because the drug blocks serotonin from being re-absorbed in the brain, and this occurs all along the central nervous system. As a result, the drug introduces unnatural changes that can harm the brain, not heal the brain. Drugs change the brain, they do not heal the brain.1

However, if a person does start taking SSRI medications, one must be extremely careful when coming off them because of this invasive disruption. 


ATMC treatment protocolsAt Alternative to Meds Center, we use nutrition as a necessary and healing support strategy. For example, a client tapering off Citalopram uses correct strategies to initiate the healing process after drugs have damaged or disrupted natural neurochemistry. Important to note, nutrition can also act as a very effective treatment instead of drugs. For example, nutrition can treat depression, anxiety,  or other mental issues. In short, good nutrition provides excellent Citalopram alternative therapy. 


Overall Health Includes Physical and Mental Health

Certainly, exercise, fresh air, sunshine all support natural mental health. Additionally, there are a whole host of other therapies that can speed up the healing process. So, this is especially true when done in an atmosphere of compassion and encouragement.

natural alternatives to citalopramIn this way, at Alternative to Meds Center, we use many treatments to ease the taper process, and these same treatments are also safe and effective when used as alternatives or substitutes for psychiatric medications. For example, counseling gives relief that is more permanent, and more effective than drugs. Certainly, few things are nicer than resolving mental anguish or fear, and re-gaining clarity and joyful interest in one’s own life.


natural therapiesFurther, the Center uses methods to cleanse the body of neurotoxins. We utilize testing for allergies and resolve them using natural methods. In addition, we teach our clients pain and stress management techniques and our many therapists are ready to deliver massage, Reiki, and much more. Also, soothing mineral baths and colonics, nebulized glutathione treatments, and other protocols give maximum client comfort. To summarize, many genres of treatments blend together in tailoring an individual’s program.

As an example, Assisted Equine Therapy provides benefits and is a very popular therapy at ATMC
