At Alternative to Meds Center, residents participate in regular exercise activities, including hiking, going to the gym, and physical training.
The resident usually starts the day program with a cardiovascular workout that lasts up to 20 minutes. At the capillary and cellular level, new oxygen and blood is pushed in by physical activity, which helps force toxins out. Exercise raises the natural painkillers of the body, and often provides a noticeable boost in mood and self-esteem. Exercise is of particular benefit to the depressed and also to former opiate users.
We offer yoga, Qigong, and other forms of physical activity so as to further the benefit of exercise.
Alternative to Meds Center advocates exercise for health benefits such as detoxification as well as for happiness, confidence and feelings of wellbeing. We have estimated that it takes 12 minutes of exercise per day to process the toxins from one normal day of metabolism. With the added burden of needing to remove a lifetime of accumulated toxins, we estimate the minimum time necessary for exercise to be effective is 20 minutes. Of course these times may need adjustments based on the health of residents.
