Holistic Treatment Success
Alternative to Meds Center is excited to report our holistic treatment success for Mal de Debarquement Syndrome ( MdDS ). Since Hippocrates first mentioned the condition in early medical literature,1 we’ve come a long way.
The center provides a holistic approach to discover and address the originating causes of unwanted symptoms. Sometimes prescription drugs have been used to suppress these, but not eliminate them. Where necessary, we offer inpatient comprehensive medication withdrawal tapering. Prescription medication is not typically effective in the long-term treatment of MdDS. You may have been led to believe that the only answer to your mental or physical health symptoms lies in prescription medications. This is FALSE! Many holistic treatment approaches are available. Are you caught in a routine of visiting doctors and taking prescription drugs, but you are still suffering? 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 develops after an ocean cruise, extensive auto, air, train, or boat travel, or other movement experience. Mal de Débarquement is a French phrase that means disembarkation sickness. The main diagnostic “tell” is a rocking, swaying, or bobbing sensation, which is characteristically different than the spinning sensation of vertigo. Some people develop MdDS unexpectedly, i.e., when they have not experienced a prior motion event. The condition is found more frequently in women than men.2 Mal de Debarquement Syndrome symptoms include a feeling of motion that is typically associated with imbalance, fatigue, and cognitive impairment and 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, 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.3 The severity of symptoms varies substantially between patients but can be quite disabling. In many cases, MdDS can continue for years. The cause is unknown, and misdiagnoses are fairly common.4 Prescription medication is usually prescribed for MdDS, however, is usually not considered effective beyond reducing the stress caused by having these strange lingering sensations.5 At Alternative to Meds Center, we may be able to offer an answer to MdDS with medication tapering, holistic medication alternatives, and naturopathic mental health treatments.
