SNRI drugs, like Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), may have been helpful during a time of acute crisis. But for some, a lifetime on Pristiq is unwarranted and can impose unwanted side effects and drug tolerance issues.14
Fundamentals About Pristiq Alternatives Treatment
What is Pristiq used for? Pristiq is an SNRI, used for managing symptoms of major depressive disorder.6 There are many such pharmaceutical products that have entered the consumer market, but not without controversy. Often, antidepressant medications can produce troubling side effects that may obfuscate their overall usefulness.1,4,5
Pristiq is a drug that doctors and patients turn to for treating (suppressing, not curing) a very wide array of symptoms, such as depression as well as anxiety, OCD, panic disorders, and others. Truly, these symptoms can ruin the quality of a person’s life. Therefore, it is no wonder that in times of desperation, doctors prescribe medications to give their patients relief. Many would agree that medications are not a perfect solution. In some cases, there are extreme antidepressant reactions that can be truly horrific.7 However, medical schools do not adequately train medical practitioners or psychiatrists on how to use natural antidepressant alternatives treatments, which can provide other options besides pharmaceutical drugs.1,8 And holistic care providers such as naturopaths may not have the prescriptive rights to be able to manage or alter the medications. This is why Alternative to Meds Center staff has the combined skill sets and licensing rights of both psychiatry and naturopathy to provide an overlap and a Complementary and Alternative Treatment in Mental Health Care (CAM) model.
Pristiq Alternative Treatment Includes Addressing Underlying Causes
Undoubtedly, one of the key aspects that increase the effectiveness of Pristiq alternative treatments is searching for the underlying causes of symptoms. Various medical tests can help by demonstrating that certain factors are present such as heavy metals or other toxic materials, and are contributing to a person’s unwanted symptoms. We also want to test for missing elements such as essential vitamins and nutrients so these can be corrected. Pristiq alternatives have demonstrated their effectiveness for thousands of clients at Alternative to Meds Center for more than 15 years.
As our studies show, for many, unwanted conditions can be improved and even resolved completely without relying on drugs. For many years, Alternative to Meds Center has developed and refined non-invasive, non-harmful ways to reduce or eliminate unwanted symptoms. And also, these protocols allow individuals to taper off Pristiq comfortably. And so, our clients can transition onto a holistic medicine treatment regimen. In these ways, you or a loved one can be emancipated, and can start living the life you know can be possible without relying on harsh, potentially harmful medications, and stop suffering from their side effects.4,5
