The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs use a method called the New Life Detoxification Program. This highly specialized drug detox program helps clients rid their bodies of any drug toxins and drug metabolites left behind in their fatty tissues from their substance abuse. While over the years there has been some controversy on this specific method of drug detox, medical professionals and researchers agree it is a safe and effective method of total purification from drugs, alcohol and other environmental toxins.
This drug detox method is a precise protocol recognized for mobilizing fat-stored toxins and enhancing their elimination while restoring metabolic balance. The protocol has long been established as safe. Publications over the past two decades also show that this drug detox regimen can improve memory, cognitive functions, immunity factors and one’s overall general physical condition.
The New Life Detoxification method is a specific standardized protocol and includes the following:
- A daily regimen of physical exercise
- Immediately followed by forced sweating in a sauna at 140-180°F for two-and-a-half to five hours with short breaks for hydration to offset the loss of body fluids and cooling
- Nutritional supplementation centered on gradually increasing doses of crystalline niacin (nicotinic acid) to promote lipid mobilization of stored toxins and stimulate circulation.
- Administration of additional vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and oils includes vitamins A, D, C, E, B complex, B1; multi-minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, and iodine; sodium and potassium; and a blend of polyunsaturated oils including soy, walnut, peanut, and safflower.
Each of these drug detox components has biologic roles that support healing and the integrity of physiological systems. The New Life Detoxification method addresses physiological systems associated with detoxification, cellular repair, immune processes, and neural and endocrine function.
“Within just a few days to a week of doing the body cleansing and purification process, the participants have color back in their face, their eyes are brighter, their energy level increases and they are sleeping well at night, waking up the next morning feeling refreshed. The mood swings from anger to depression and general uncomfortability and anxiety levels diminish and many will say they feel more centered and balanced and more themselves again. Many of the participants will say that they have not felt this good, healthy, and alive since some earlier pleasurable time in their life when they were playing sports or other athletic activity. Our staff and counselors will generally see an increased willingness and motivation in the program participant which helps set them up for the next sections of the program dealing with the underlying issues and transgressions. All of the above positive effects are of course side benefits to the real reason and result of the New Life Detoxification Program, which is to eliminate future drug cravings and relapses on drugs or alcohol which is a huge accomplishment.” – Narconon Fresh Start
