All clients undergo a complete blood chemistry analysis at Passages Malibu to test for potential chemical imbalances and nutritional deficiencies. It is not uncommon to mask the symptoms of a chemical imbalance or deficiency by using drugs and alcohol. Resolving the chemical imbalance can significantly reduce or even eliminate cravings for drugs and alcohol.
Chemical imbalance is but one of four possible causes for developing a drug and alcohol addiction. Our luxury rehab center in California can identify which of the four main causes of addiction applies to you or your loved one and provide them with a safe and effective recovery, so please call (888) 566-9165.
The physiological changes brought on by a prolonged drug and alcohol addiction vary from client to client. Depression, for example, is a common chemical imbalance often resulting from the disruption of proper serotonin and dopamine regulation. Bipolarism, insomnia, ADD and other similar disorders can likewise be a consequence of other hormonal irregularities in the brain and throughout the body.
Remember: a chemical imbalance does not always take place in the brain. The thyroid, kidneys and other areas of the body can independently cause a wide assortment of problems ranging from obesity to extreme anxiety. This can lead to self-medicating with drugs and alcohol to the point of addiction. Only a complete blood chemistry analysis can test for chemical imbalances within the body and brain.
Your body needs proper nutrition to adequately create and maintain proper hormone levels and active neurotransmitters. A vitamin or mineral deficiency can disrupt the endocrine system, which is responsible for body’s entire hormone production, and this can disrupt any of the other main systems of the human body in return. Sleeping, eating, mood and other important aspects of life are negatively impacted by a nutritional deficiency, and this could lead to self-medication for relief.
Passages Malibu rectifies any nutritional deficiencies using all-natural supplements and gourmet meals prepared by world-class chefs. Massage therapy, yoga and tai chi are used to improve blood flow, restoring oxygen-enriched nutrients to vital areas of the body.
