One of the ways to get a clearer mind is to become more balanced in the body. The series of poses in yoga called asanas work to safely stretch the muscles. This can release the lactic acid that accumulates with muscle use; built-up lactic acid can cause tension, pain, fatigue, and stiffness. Certain styles of yoga use meditation methods that help quiet the “mind chatter” that commonly underlies stress.
Among the anti-stress benefits of yoga are a variety of biochemical responses. As an example, there is a reduction in excitatory neurotransmitters, and the hormones (for instance cortisol) which are created by the adrenal glands as a response to stress.
Decreasing these levels – dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine – produces a feeling of relaxation. Some research suggests that a boost of the hormone oxytocin occurs during yoga. Oxytocin is often referred to as the “bonding” and “trust” hormone which is associated with feeling relaxed and connected to others and it can also generate a feeling of self love.

Acupuncture has shown to be effective in drug and medication withdrawal. It also helps to alleviate pain. We offer auricular acupuncture in the standard program, and full body acupuncture as an add-on service. Our acupuncturist is specifically oriented to the nature of drug treatment, and detoxification assistance. Even people with extreme anxiety and insomnia have been observed sleeping during treatments. This impressive art is taken to a whole new level at our center.

Colonics and Basti Enemas
The holistic detoxification program at Alternative to Meds Center is geared towards removing one’s stored toxic body burden. The chelators and other toxin removal products we administer have that effect. When these toxins are being pulled from the system, they often deposit themselves in the colon. These are the same toxins which destroy brain chemistry, and that altered brain chemistry then results in cravings and drug addictions. Colonics help ensure that the liberated toxin burden is completely exiting the body, rather than getting reabsorbed and deposited elsewhere.

Ionic Foot Baths
In today’s world we are living in a highly toxic environment; the chemicals in the food we eat, in the water that we drink, in the clothes we wear, and the pollution in the air which we breathe. Some of these toxins are polarized, which means that an ionic field can attract them. Using that polarity, we can assist in their extraction. And since the pores in the feet are the largest in the body, it makes a perfect exit route for these type of harbored toxins.

Massage therapies are not just sessions that promote relaxation, massage can also help your body with detoxifying. We love that we provide a spa like treatment for mental health, which helps people feel cared for. But, it also gets things moving out of the tissues like stagnant lymph. The lymph pathways need to be cleared for the deeper detoxification work that we do to be effective. We feel that these toxins are highly implicated in mental health issues. Unless they are removed, these toxin can continue to alter one’s neurochemistry, the same neurochemistry that conveys emotion.

Environmental medicine is founded on the idea that what we eat and what we are exposed to in the environment has a potent effect upon our health. Environmental medicine examines the effect of air pollutants, heavy metals, toxins, pesticides, and other environmental factors. This approach to medicine explores the pertinent interactions between the environment and health, and the function of the environment in causing or contributing to mental health, disease and even addiction issues.

Glutathione is also known as a master antioxidant. Glutathione is integral for optimal action of any other antioxidants, such as CoQ10, vitamin C and vitamin E. It provides protection against radiation and eliminates toxins from the cells. The body’s intracellular function is to create glutathione with three different amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. We administer the glutathione with a nebulizer (vaporizer), therefore eliminating the use of needles, in order for it to get in the bloodstream directly without the use of IV’s.
