Imagine you just recently arrived at Alternative To Meds Center. You’re excited, anticipating what the day will bring and what to expect. While you are here, you will partake in a very structured schedule that will keep you busy from morning to evening. But what exactly does that look like? Below, you will find the answer to that question and more.
ATMC Morning Schedule:
7 AM: Breakfast.
Following breakfast, your day continues by taking part in delivery. Delivery consists of a special supplement and medication protocol (if you are taking medications). Your medical team has carefully tailored a supplement protocol just for you that will evolve and change throughout your stay. You will meet with the naturopathic doctor weekly to review your supplement protocol and make changes to assist you with your medication taper or drug detox.
9 AM: The Detox Shoppe: Chelation, Sauna, & Bodywork
The Detox Shoppe boasts a relaxing and tranquil spa environment. Here, you will take part in our holistic chelation and detoxification programs. First, you take a series of supplements designed to both pull toxins from your cells as well as replenish essential nutrients and minerals in the body. As you go through the process of pushing toxins out and flooding your cells with nutrients, balance begins to be restored in your neurochemistry and your symptoms begin to decrease.
The program consists of both a chelation and a sauna program. You begin by exercising before getting in the sauna. Following this, you dry brush your skin, which stimulates the lymphatic system and increases circulation. You then spend up to two hours in the sauna, taking breaks every 15 minutes and releasing toxins. Our staff will monitor you closely to ensure that you are hydrated and healthy throughout the experience. There are three different saunas capped at different temperatures that you can choose from, depending on your preference.
There are many other adjunctive detoxification therapies in our spa room at the Detox Shoppe. For instance, ionic foot baths are offered, which help to pull toxins through one of the main detoxifying pathways, your feet. Castor oil pack treatments are applied around the area of the liver and kidneys, using an Ayurvedic method of pulling toxins from these detoxifying organs. Clay masks are also available which help to pull toxins from the skin. Re-mineralization foot baths with Epsom salts and relaxing essential oils and moisturizing facials are also offered. Nebulized glutathione is also available, which is beneficial for the respiratory tract. Today, you decide to try a castor oil pack in our relaxing environment where you experience peace and tranquility as your body is detoxifying.
Bodywork is another essential component of the Detox Shoppe experience that you will experience during your time here. Everyday that you’re at the Detox Shoppe you’re able to get some form of bodywork or group acupuncture session. Group acupuncture is offered twice weekly. Bodywork treatments are available up to three times per week. You can choose from our bodywork menu of therapeutic massage, shirodhara, Reiki, spiritual insight healing, B.E.S.T., and Aromatherapy.
