It is uncommon for today’s medical facilities to provide Latuda alternatives and we don’t just mean switching drugs or putting the client in a drug-induced coma for “relief.”

Being prescribed antipsychotics like Latuda (lurasidone), even if correctly indicated during a time of demonstrable crisis, does not always mean that a lifetime of being medicated is necessary.

Does Your Diagnosis
Require Latuda?

Why Consider Latuda Alternatives?

More than ever before, new information is available about healthy alternative treatments for schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, BPD, and many other typically baffling conditions. This is positive news and gives hope where there may have only been despair in the past. We invite you to share this and other information on the website with family or any others who might need to be reassured that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Are you looking for Latuda alternatives that are less risky than continuing heavy drugs? Latuda is an “atypical” antipsychotic medication that is FDA-approved for the treatment of BD (bipolar depression), schizophrenia (audio/visual hallucinations and/or disordered or delusional thoughts). It is also prescribed “off-label” for certain other conditions that might include psychosis and bipolar-related mania. Please remember the FDA recommendation that Latuda, generic lurasidone, should not be used by elderly patients with dementia due to the increased risk of death. Antipsychotics, in general, are risky for heart disease, stroke, and cardiac arrest and many other adverse effects that may begin to outweigh any benefits of taking the medication.1

Latuda alternatives at Alternative to Meds Center present superior options over drug-based treatments where drugs have not been helpful and have not provided relief. Latuda users don’t need to continue to suffer when effective Latuda alternatives exist. We have scientifically proven ways that reduce and eliminate unwanted side effects and the past symptoms that can be resolved. Alternative to Meds Center has shown that there are many non-drug-based treatments that can allow a person to regain robust health and happiness without drugs, and without being chained to side effects and unnecessary Latuda withdrawal symptoms.

Diet in Treating Mental Disorders

keto nutritionOne example is a study showing that schizophrenia patients very often (50%) respond remarkably well when switched to a ketogenic diet. In one astounding clinical report, the effects of a keto diet were highly significant as far as the reduction of hallucinations and delusions.
Nutrient deficiencies are often disregarded entirely and even mislabeled, unfortunately, as mental health disorders. Instead of numbing the symptoms with drugs, a more expedient approach is to discover these missing or out of balance elements and correct them using a keto-based clean diet consisting of mostly organic and locally sourced produce and other nutrient-dense foods. Supplements are key as well, used strategically to provide necessary nutritional armor and the raw materials needed for a healthy microbiome and natural neurochemistry in good order.

This type of non-drug treatment is sustainable and does not create harmful or intolerable side effects that are often inherent in medication-based treatments. There are many such non-drug-based types of treatment that may have been overlooked in your own experience.2

Latuda Alternatives in Treating Bipolar Depression

It has been well known for some time that Latuda alternatives ought to be considered for treatment-resistant bipolar. Some clinicians or physicians may try medication after medication, including experimental medications and veterinary medicines for people, without success and may even resort to electroshock treatment with equally dismal, even heartbreaking results.3

Alternative to Meds Center offers alternatives to antipsychotic treatment protocols that are based on natural and scientific principles and methods in preference to guesswork and dubious pharmacological “solutions,” and ours is a very high success rate.

Discovering and Addressing Root Causes is Key

Information gathering and batteries of testing are crucial for a clear snapshot of each client, their history, their current symptomology, their diet, testing for vitamin/mineral deficiencies, the presence of toxic load, allergies, genetic factors, and other pertinent information. From this data, an individualized program is designed to address the factors which are likely causing unwanted symptoms to persist.
We can know when a toxic load is present in the body because it shows up on tests. Whether it was acquired from long-past chemical or recent exposure in the household or industrial or work environment, past drug or vaccine residues, heavy metals like mercury, lead, or from other sources, these can be purged from the body using gentle and non-invasive means like low-temperature sauna, chelation, mineral baths, ionized foot baths, colonics, and other methods. It is well-documented that the presence of toxins in the body can wreak havoc on both physical and mental health and in the vast majority of cases the clean-out can improve mood, sleep, appetite, and other aspects of feeling well and functioning at an overall healthier level.4
