MindBody medicine is the essence of healing and consists of evaluating and restoring the natural wisdom of the body, and, uncovering the origins of disease within the conscious and unconscious mind as well as reducing stress.
Whereas conventional medical practice focuses on the treatment of disease using drugs and surgery, mindbody medicine is based on promoting health as the best treatment for disease. Medications and surgery are great for infections and trauma, but they are not so effective for the epidemic of chronic disease in modern society.
The first step in addiction recovery at MindBody Medicine Center is a functional medical assessment looking for conditions in the body that contribute to fatigue, anxiety, depression, reduced pain tolerance, poor focus and more. These common underlying conditions include food sensitivities, gluten intolerance, adrenal and thyroid imbalances, malabsorption, neurotransmitter deficiency and NAD deficiency. While these issues are treated, mostly with nutritional supplements and diet, the patient receives intravenous NAD and amino acids based in individually designed protocols for a 10 day period of time, supervised by our medical staff. The IV NAD and amino acids improves brain function based on higher levels of cellular energy production along with increased neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. There is some withdrawal symptoms for two or three days, but reduced by 70 to 80% when compared to “cold turkey” withdrawal. After three to five days as withdrawal symptoms disappear, craving subsides and clarity of thinking is restored..
We offer a free live lectures and webinars Tuesday evenings from 7 to 8:30pm on a variety of important medical topics.
Chronic diseases arise from what we do to ourselves day after day. They are a result of our lifestyle and mind style. The purpose of disease is to get your attention so you can listen to your body and make changes in order to live with more health and happiness. The purpose of disease is to produce healing, not take a symptomatic medication designed to make the message go away.
