The first step for clients whose population may also include gamblers and people with eating disorders is to undergo a preliminary screening to see if toxins, heavy metals and nutritional deficiencies exist. Hair analysis screening is a useful tool for discovering imbalances. A complete biochemistry balancing program includes tests based on blood and urine evaluations. Testing of amino acids leads to evaluation of dietary protein adequacy, brain chemistry balancing and food allergy results, among other conclusions.
Clients overhaul every aspect of their lives as a multitude of issues are examined from nutrition, exercise, group therapy sessions, vitamins and herbal supplements to intensive self-reflection. All client treatment plans include yoga, spa therapies, massage, acupuncture, karate, meditation, 12-step meetings and faith-based services. Using the twelve steps pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous, the center is devoted to rebalancing clients' body and brain chemistry.
