The benzo crisis is out … of … control, but we are pleased to see a growing trend toward seeking healthier lorazepam alternatives for mental wellness.

For best results, lorazepam alternatives treatment must be designed specifically for the individual. We have seen the consistent results from this type of approach and consider it crucial for each client’s success.  At Alternative to Meds, we know the “ins and outs” of benzos.

Does Your Diagnosis
Require Lorazepam?

successful lorazepam alternatives
Alternative to Meds has been providing effective benzo alternatives for over 15 years. We have published evidence demonstrating our success with clients who could not find help anywhere else in many cases. Benzodiazepines like Ativan can cause a neurotoxic reaction in the CNS. As a result, drug reactions spin out of control and unleash great suffering on the person. For persons in this situation, the depth of suffering is hard to express in words. Resolving the impacts of neurotoxicity can allow the CNS and brain to regulate once again. We understand how to promote natural, sustainable mental health without drugs. That is why so many have had success with our treatments.

Scientifically Proven Lorazepam Alternatives

proven holistic lorazepam alternativesFor people who have a hard time with anxiety, insomnia, or other symptoms and are intolerant to lorazepam side effects, are unresponsive to the medication, or are concerned about physical dependence, lorazepam alternatives can change your life.

How powerful is lorazepam? Lorazepam is so powerful, that it has been used as a “knock-out” drug by sex criminals and thieves — so powerful that it can render the victim unable to respond or flee. Lorazepam is also highly addictive and has developed an increased street presence as a drug of abuse.1

We offer scientifically proven and well-researched lorazepam alternatives that are also powerful but in a good way. Our services are fundamentally non-drug-based (with the exception of the taper process) and these methods are designed to ease tapering off this medication. It is possible to safely transition to the use of effective, natural benzodiazepine alternatives. Prescription medication is not the only option — you do have other choices. Below is a list of some examples along with references to studies and clinical trials showing their efficacy.

Lorazepam Alternatives include:
  • Upgrade the diet 53
  • CBT 6,7
  • Managing symptoms strategically with diet, using unprocessed food choices free of pesticides & chemicals 5,8,9,10,11
  • Eliminate Aspartame©, caffeine, and other stimulants 9-14
  • Test for and correct vitamin/mineral/micronutrient deficiencies 5,15,16,17
  • *Neurotoxin removal (mercury, lead, toxic mold, other pollutants) 18-28
  • Learn relaxation techniques 29-32
  • Herbal remedies — kava, passionflower, valerian, lemon balm, lavender, etc.33-41
  • Build a healthy gut microbiome — support the “second brain” in the gut with prebiotics, probiotics, and fermented foods — This is key to recovering natural mental health, despite it being largely ignored in most drug treatment centers.9.15,52

*Sibelrud et al.’s study showed evidence that higher anxiety, anger, and depression occur in women with mercury dental fillings.1

Why Choose Alternatives to Lorazepam?

Lorazepam’s side effects can be deeply troubling. Benzodiazepines have a high risk for addiction and cause severe and disabling withdrawal symptoms. Many individuals who end up on this medication would have likely preferred natural alternatives to lorazepam if these options had been made available to them. Drug regulators class lorazepam as a benzodiazepine that is FDA approved to treat anxiety and other symptoms. However, the risks of addiction, lorazepam withdrawal symptoms, potential overdose, memory impairment, slowed learning ability, and other severe side effects are well-established.2,43,44

We offer the opportunity to get off medication comfortably and treat mental health naturally and effectively. The center also teaches doctors how to work with alternatives to benzos for their patients.

Benzodiazepines and GABA

stabilize brain chemistry All benzodiazepines are believed to act upon the inhibitory neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA for short.45

As covered in the video above, GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. If you have not done so yet, watch the video for a better understanding of this subject. It makes a fascinating study.

Benzodiazepine drugs do not produce more GABA, but they do manipulate its transport in the body. GABA is inhibitory in nature, resulting in a calming of the brain. This may sound like a fairly straightforward cause-effect action, but exactly how this drug affects the complexities within the central nervous system and brain is not yet completely understood. A mega-complex pinball machine might make a very rough analogy. But it is thought to primarily affect two things that might explain the drug’s effects. Firstly, it is hypothesized that the synapse is made more permeable to GABA molecules. Second, lorazepam is thought to make calcium less available, which initiates a muscle relaxant effect. Over time, benzos make the synapse become less responsive to GABA, meaning more and more of the drug is needed for the same relaxation effect. This medication dependence phase is quite common in benzodiazepine treatment, especially when the period of drug use expands out to months or years. Then when the drug is discontinued, especially if done too rapidly, GABA levels will be low, (meaning high stimulation levels) and excess calcium (elevating stress, muscle contractions, seizures, and other reactions) will be high. This may explain, at least in part, why benzodiazepine withdrawal that is done improperly can be excruciatingly wretched.45,46,47,48,49

AVOID Cold Turkey Withdrawal

When an individual has been using this medication for a long time and desires to transition into a lorazepam alternatives treatment plan, they can experience physical withdrawal while the drug is leaving their system. Cessation can introduce many side effects including vomiting, convulsions, tremors, muscle cramps, and even seizures that have occurred in individuals who stop the medication too abruptly. However, when a gradual taper is done correctly, with nutritional neurotransmitter support in place, the process becomes fairly uncomplicated and vastly more tolerable. Alternative to Meds Center uses treatments designed to significantly relieve withdrawal phenomena while this drug is leaving the system.

We can help you quit using lorazepam and live your life without residual anxiety and medication cravings.

Cleanse Neurotoxicity — Effective Alternative Treatment

Poisonous toxins like cleaning solvents can damage or irritate the nerves, and cause symptoms like anxiety.4

Clients at the center get tested for the presence of toxic poisons that may have accumulated in the body over time. The body stores toxins in fat tissues as a defense mechanism. These toxins can come from many sources, not just benzodiazepines. Chemical exposures occur too frequently in the workplace. A person can come into contact with pesticides used outdoors. Many personal care products and home cleaning products contain deadly pollutants. Preservatives or flavor enhancers that are used in processed food and chemicals used in water treatment can also leave a toxic residue behind. These toxins can be damaging to neurotransmitter function.

We believe that toxicity is imperative to address, as it can contribute significantly to problems encountered during benzodiazepine tapering. The solution we have found workable is to cleanse out the toxicity, along with treatments designed to strengthen neurotransmitter repair, before any major tapering. This softens and eases the withdrawal process considerably.

Medical Lorazepam Alternatives

Due to the severity of benzodiazepine withdrawal, extreme caution needs to be exercised when tapering an individual off of the drug as these effects can be severe and lingering.48,49

At Alternative to Meds, we provide medical lorazepam alternatives such as bridge medications when needed to help to ensure a safe and smooth taper. At the earliest opportunity, after stabilization, the person can successfully begin transitioning to lorazepam alternatives to manage their anxiety or other symptoms. Our drug treatment program not only focuses on relieving the pain and discomforts of coming off the drug but just as importantly, focuses on discovering the root causes of initial symptoms that led to benzodiazepine use. We work at discovering and correcting the underlying causes of anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, or other symptoms that led a person to be medicated in the first place.

Overcoming Anxiety and Panic Disorders

natural alternatives for anxietyAnxiety and panic disorders are traditionally described as resulting from chemical imbalances in the neurotransmitters, and benzodiazepines are supposed to correct this imbalance. We wish it were that simple. The tranquilizing effects of drugs like lorazepam are thought to come from causing available GABA to remain suspended in the nerve synapse (see video for picture). These molecules of GABA would normally pass through to be continuously recycled along the CNS. Benzodiazepines prevent this from happening. The suspended GABA molecules become spent, and degrade into unusable waste products. Benzos do not create more GABA, so once the body’s stores of GABA have been used up in this way, everything will seem too stimulating for the person. This creates further complications in the chemistry of the brain and body. If a person took benzodiazepines to treat anxiety or panic attacks, this is where the symptoms would be prone to recur, or “rebound” and sometimes with a vengeance.50

Fortunately, Alternative to Meds does provide drug-free options for resolving panic and anxiety disorders. These same neurotransmitters can be influenced by natural substances and drug-free strategies for mental health,3,5 that not only lessen unwanted anxiousness but can also support manufacturing new GABA molecules. Diet is extremely important in this regard.54  We place emphasis on enhancing natural functions in the body to work better, instead of artificial manipulation with medication. Our medical staff members create customized plans for each client.

CBT vs Medication

Research has begun to show a remarkable trend that counseling such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) can have not only better outcomes than drug-based therapy in reducing unwanted symptoms but that those benefits are more enduring than drug therapy. CBT and other forms of talk therapy provide workable lorazepam alternative treatment to help to resolve upsetting emotions and other symptoms that have often been targeted only with the prescription pad.6,7

Natural Lorazepam Solutions

holistic lorazepam treatmentsWe find it ironic that these medications were prescribed to get rid of anxiety, insomnia, and panic attacks. But the same symptoms typically rebound — viciously — especially after long-term benzo use. Even short-term use can cause these effects, according to published research.50

As discussed earlier, testing reveals that the person with these symptoms is most typically suffering from an accumulation of neurotoxins. These toxins can include many different elements like heavy metals and quite a wide range of chemicals. Studies show that these can overstimulate the nervous system.4 This could have been what led to the initial use of benzodiazepines. Our alternative benzo programs include gentle taper methods, cleansing of neurotoxic accumulations, natural substances such as nebulized glutathione for neurochemical support, individual counseling, peer support, and relaxation techniques. Other therapies include a clean, well-designed diet, supplementation for neuro support and correcting deficiencies,5 acupuncture, mild exercise, massage, biotransformational sauna, art therapy, yoga, equine therapy, IV therapy, meditation, colon hydrotherapy, and more. One of the most fundamental actions is to rebuild gut health so the microbiota-gut-brain axis is functioning, which supports mental wellness to the maximum.51,52

The scientific methods we use to discontinue medication and stabilize brain function have assisted thousands of our clients to become medication-free, and symptom-free. Our goal is long-term success for our clients, not temporary fixes. We offer safe, holistic, non-drug-based approaches to achieve balance and natural mental health.
