Nutritionally Assisted Detox: A natural way to begin treatment
Withdrawal can be a long and painful process. Severe nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, depression and even seizures are all associated with withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms can be daunting — or even dangerous — to treat at home. For this reason, professional detoxification is often an essential step in the recovery process. After withdrawal symptoms are minimized or eliminated, patients can more easily focus on long-term recovery.
Sovereign Health’s Nutritionally Assisted Detox program, or NAD, is a unique, all-natural rapid detox process that is designed to help individuals detox from substances and fight cravings with the use of NAD supplements. Instead of fighting the brain’s natural healing process, NAD works in tandem to reduce the painful symptoms associated with withdrawal. This natural detox program can be found at one of our rapid detox centers in California.
What causes withdrawal symptoms?
Individuals who pursue sobriety often experience uncomfortable or painful withdrawal symptoms as they wean themselves off their substance of abuse. Withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the drug that is causing the symptoms.
Why? After long-term substance abuse, the brain adapts to the substance in question, reducing the presence of certain neurotransmitters, culling cellular receptors and otherwise changing the way in which brain cells function so that the drug can “fit in” more easily. When the substance in question is no longer available, the brain must struggle to fill the void that the drug left behind. This struggle is what causes withdrawal symptoms. The potential danger associated with withdrawal is also why natural alcohol detox and natural drug detox can be so important.
