ADDICTION

The WholeHealth Difference.

Addiction is a neurotransmitter problem, but the current medical model for treating addiction is not based on correcting this. Current methods focus on having patients abstain from the substance for “long enough”. Long enough breeds frustration, disappointment, shame and guilt.​​​ Abstinence is not recovery.

How Does Addiction Affect The Brain?

Certain substances and behaviors cause an increased excretion of neurotransmitters into the synapse between neurons. Over time, this causes two problems: 1) it depletes the body’s amino acid resources, which are the building blocks of proteins and used to make more neurotransmitters; and 2) it alters the number of receptors, affecting proper functioning.

b. it alters the number of receptors, affecting proper functioning.

How does Amino Acid Therapy Heal Addiction?

Amino Acid Therapy replenishes the supply of organic ingredients so that the body can resume making normal amounts of neurotransmitters. When normal levels of neurotransmitters have been restored, two beneficial things can happen: The regular cycle of neuronal message transmission resumes and the number of receptors goes back down to normal. This lays the groundwork for addiction recovery

Amino acids are essentially the building blocks that are used to build proteins and are intricately involved in nearly every structure in our bodies, including neurotransmitters.

“Before I met Dr. Petersen my life was at an all time low, and no other doctors were able to help. I stopped having faith I could ever be back to the person that I was before my addiction and mental health issues. With the treatment I received I not only feel as though I did in the past, but I am able to function better than I could have ever imagined.” – August 2017 Tyson
