Holistic Treatment Benefits in Detox

In 2009, there were around 2.1 million hospital emergency department visits resulting from drug abuse or misuse alone. Drug or alcohol abuse are both serious addictions that can affect your life negatively. After being addicted to a substance for so long, detoxification can be a challenge. On top of that, you may fear becoming addicted to a new drug or treatment in your recovery program.

Holistic therapies can be combined with modern medicine to help you overcome addiction more easily without the use of traditional medications in some cases. Detoxification can be a difficult process both mentally and physically.

With the right combination of treatments, you can overcome your detoxification and work through withdrawal without the severe symptoms you may fear. Holistic therapies can be combined with traditional treatments, which is why they are sometimes called complementary therapies. These combination treatments can work to benefit each other, helping you work through minor withdrawal symptoms or medicate for severe symptoms as needed.

The Main Benefits of Holistic Treatment

There are a few major benefits of holistic treatments. These include things like:

  • Improvement of health in general
  • The quick relief of pain
  • Assistance with a well-balanced lifestyle
  • The application of natural methods of treatment including nutrition, exercise, and non-invasive treatments
  • Awareness of environmental safety and health
  • The use of natural herbs and medicines

For instance, those who receive these treatments may benefit from reduced stress or anxiety thanks to human touch during a massage or the increased circulation in the body following an acupuncture session. The quick relief of pain can sometimes be attributed to increased circulation and the release of tension with massage.

Natural herbal treatments, like with the use of aromatherapy, can help lower stress and stimulate the body. For instance, peppermint or spearmint is known to help open the airways and increase circulation to the skin.

Exercises like yoga or stretching can help reduce tension and anxiety as well, benefitting patients who may not want to take medications or who want to learn to work through side effects or withdrawal symptoms.

How Do Holistic Therapies Help During Drug Rehabilitation?

Spiritual counseling can help a person feel more connected to himself and others, while exercises help reduce physical stress.

Complementary therapies can provide many benefits, including:

  • Reducing pain or relieving pain
  • Improving circulation
  • Providing time to relax
  • Providing relief from stress, anxiety, or stress
  • Improving your emotions or moods
  • Boosting your immune system
  • Improving the speed at which the body removes toxins

What Are Some Holistic Therapies Available?

Some commonly used holistic therapies include:

  1. Holistic Massage
  2. Aromatherapy
  3. Manual lymphatic drainage
  4. Acupuncture

Holistic massage focuses on the needs of the patient. The patient may want a light touch or firm pressure. Certain parts of the body may be massaged, like the shoulders or neck, to release tension in that specific area. Holistic massage’s purpose is to introduce not only a massage that reduces pressure and tension but also to put the body at ease with human touch and compassion.

Aromatherapy uses scents to address stress, tension, and anxiety. Essential oils are created from many natural plants, seeds, bark, roots, and so on. The oils can be blended into a scent that the individual likes and they can also be mixed into massage creams. The room may be fragranced with the essential oils or diluted to use on the body.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle method of massage that helps improve the flow of the lymphatic system. The lymph nodes contain white blood cells, so massaging the nodes can help drain the nodes of the toxins that may have accumulated. During the massage, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, helping promote recovery and growth. The muscles are calmed, immune system strengthened, and lymphatic flow improved.

Acupuncture, another kind of holistic therapy, is used to stimulate the skin, muscles, and body’s circulation. Small needles are inserted around the body to stimulate the nerves and release tension and anxiety.
