At Alternative to Meds Center, we provide a holistic approach to discover and address the originating causes of physical and mental health conditions.
We offer comprehensive medication withdrawal tapering techniques and an alternative to prescription medication that can allow holistic treatment success for Mal de Debarquement Syndrome ( MdDS ). Traditional prescription medication is not typically effective in the long term treatment of MdDS. If you have been told the only answer to your mental or physical health symptoms is prescription medications, holistic treatment approaches are available. You do not have to get caught in a routine of visiting doctors and taking prescription drugs. Read the success story below, written by a client who came to us on prescription medications with MdDS symptoms and who left our care free of symptoms and medications.
Are you struggling with medication issues, mental health problems, or Mal de Debarquement Syndrome?
Mal de Débarquement Syndrome, also known as Disembarkment Syndrome or MdDS, is an uncommon condition of perceived movement that most commonly develops after an ocean cruise, extensive auto, air, train, or boat travel, or other movement experience. Mal de Debarquement is a French phrase that means disembarkation sickness. Some people develop MdDS unexpectedly, i.e., they do not have a particular motion event. More frequent in women than men, Mal de Debarquement Syndrome symptoms include a feeling of motion (swaying, rocking, tumbling,) that is typically associated with imbalance, fatigue and cognitive impairment. Impaired cognition can include short term loss of memory, lack of ability to remember words, and lack of ability to multi-task.
We can provide scientific, safe and sustainable solutions to mental health and alternatives to medication that can also offer relief from MdDS symptoms.
Common symptoms of MdDS include visual disturbances, dizziness, migraines or headaches, anxiety, and confusion. It is also documented that some patients have described ear related symptoms such as tinnitus, hyperacusis, pain, and even decreased hearing. The severity of symptoms varies substantially between patients but can be quite disabling. In many cases, MdDS can continue for years, is commonly undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, the cause is unknown, and effective treatment is difficult to find. Prescription medication is usually prescribed for MdDS, however, is usually not effective. At Alternative to Meds Center, we may be able to offer an answer to MdDS with medication tapering, holistic medication alternatives and mental health solutions.
Don’t fall into a cycle of prescription medicating and doctors visits.
The symptoms of MdDS are often increased by mental health problems, medication, drug or alcohol addiction, lack of sleep, stress, crowds, sudden movements, flickering lights, busy or enclosed areas, and loud sounds. The syndrome is felt to be under reported in the medical literature, where less than 100 cases have been researched. If you feel that you may have MdDS, we may be able to help you overcome the syndrome through balancing mental health and providing effective alternatives to prescription drugs.
We employ holistic, drug-free approaches to stabilize the brain and body.
Traditional medicine notes that medications such as benzodiazepine clonazepam can suppress brain circuits and nerves involved in balance but that these medications do not appear to provide permanent relief. As the recommended medications for this syndrome do not typically provide lasting success, Alternative to Meds Center may be able to offer effective alternative options besides medication and subsequently alleviate the symptoms of MdDS.
Our professionals get to the bottom of why you started having symptoms.
Alternative to Meds Center achieved holistic treatment success for Mal de Debarquement Syndrome using methods of chelation to remove heavy metals from the body and detoxification methods to remove neurotoxins, such as built up pesticide burden. Through repairing the nervous system and providing other beneficial Disembarkment syndrome treatments, restoration of balance became possible. We use lab testing to determine levels of vitamins, minerals and toxicity and implement nutrition and dietary therapies to further benefit the transition to stability.
All aspects of treatment are customized to meet each client’s exact needs.

“I’m Jason and for 23 years I’ve been on very strong narcoleptic drugs to control my obsessive-compulsive disorder (O.C.D.) and Tourette’s syndrome. The doctor’s convinced my family and I that I would need to take the drugs for my entire life, this was incredibly discouraging to me. Two months ago, Alternative to Meds Center was introduced into my life. The director, Lyle, was very confident that he would be able to taper me off of my meds safely and implement a holistic, natural regimen. My first thoughts were that he was totally crazy. For 23 years, there hasn’t been one day that I’ve lived without them, and vitamins were supposed to help? At first I thought this was outlandish, but took a very deep breath, went into it and kept an open mind. Every day for my whole life, I have felt like I have to take these medications or else! When growing up amongst friends and my peers it was difficult to feel “normal” because none of the other kids had to take potent sedatives every single morning. When my taper was completed, my results were astronomical. I didn’t feel sedated or like a zombie for the first time in my life. My personality turned positive, happy, and optimistic. And get this, the Vitamins actually did work. I thought this was never possible… ever. My O.C.D. and Tourette’s syndrome symptoms had dissipated and I was also medication free, thank God! One and a half months later, I entered into a different program. After beginning the other program, the program supervisor chose not to allow me to have my vitamin packs. When I stopped taking them, Tourette’s syndrome came back with full force, and my head was literally spinning without control, I was a mess. I brought this to Alternative to Meds Center, and they put me immediately back on my vitamins and once again, the Tourette’s was gone. Being off of my medications was a dream I have had for many years, and the Alternative to Meds Center has made that dream possible for me. This is a real miracle, as far as I’m concerned.. For anyone who is plagued with similar situations as I’ve been, I would recommend that they go through this process. It is very effective and really does work.”
