Dr. Andrew works with patients in recovery
Does this sound familiar?
- I know I’ve trashed my body and I want to get healthy.
- Even though I’ve been sober, I still crave alcohol or drugs. Are there some supplements I can take?
- I’m bloated and gassy, I know my digestion is off and I want to feel normal.
- I know my liver probably seems some help.
- I’m moody, cranky, anxious, depressed; can I fix this without taking prescription drugs?
- My brain hasn’t been right since that one time I did [fill in the blank].
- I am eating a ton. I seem to crave junk food a lot, especially sugar and fat and things I know aren’t good for me.
Dr. Andrew explains: “There are different types of addictions – some are chemical, some are process. They both need nutritional help. Alcoholics often have functional hypoglycemia. They need alcohol-free remedies and nutrition to support their recovery, and often, they need brain balancing to balance their biochemistry.
“Almost all patients in recovery have abused their body. Some did so for many years. They almost all need some kind of digestive and liver support, and often hormonal / brain support (thyroid, adrenal, brain-functioning-optimization). They often have a lot of mental and emotional stress they’re carrying in their bodies that we’ll do emotional releasing around (stress triggers, etc). Often, the client relationship starts with 3-4 sessions, and some will choose to come every 1-4 weeks for ongoing treatment.”
During the initial intake, Dr. Andrew will do a full exam to hear about your symptoms, looking for patterns and contributing factors to dis-ease in the body and determining which modalities will be most useful in treating you. All disease is treated physically, biochemically, mentally, and emotionally—your body will tell us what it needs—so that you can start feeling better, ideally within one or two visits.
