I’ve been sober for 40 some odd days now and I’m feeling 100% better than I did when I first came to Narconon Fresh Start. I’m sleeping better now than I can ever remember; probably since my teenage years. I can feel my brain coming back to life. Well, as much of it as I can get back. I am thankful for my choice to get help and even more happy that I did not end up some place else. The New Life Detoxification Program has, and still is helping me more than I imagined. The results are so wonderful that I want to build a sauna in my home to continue removing chemicals and environmental toxins from my body monthly. Thanks to this program I feel well balanced and stable.
Over time, drug addiction and alcoholism take a huge toll on the user’s body. To be able to fully recover from one’s addiction issues and restore a person back to their peek physical condition it is essential that the person in recovery understand all of the conditions that could hinder their rehabilitation process. Getting a complete physical is a necessary part of understanding one’s current physical state and what is needed to improve their overall health.
In addition to addressing the general health of a recovering individual, working to flush out the toxins and metabolites left behind by drug and alcohol use is a key step in one’s recovery process. When a person consumes alcohol or takes drugs their body stores the toxins and metabolites in the user’s fatty tissue. Going through a total body purification process will effectively remove these remaining toxins and metabolites giving the person’s body new life and vitality.
This chemical buildup of drug toxins and metabolites does not necessarily create any effect while they are stored in the person’s tissue; it is when they are ultimately released into the person’s body that they trigger cravings and physical compulsions to use. The toxins become dislodged and released at haphazard times – anything from exercise to stress can cause them to become dislodged and circulate in the blood, essentially re-stimulating the user once again. When this happens the user experiences a physical, emotional and psychological reaction to the re-stimulating effects of the drug/alcohol toxins and metabolites.
A sauna-based detoxification process cleanses the person’s body of any residual toxins and metabolites and works to end physical cravings for alcohol and drugs. Narconon Fresh Start uses the New Life Detoxification Program to fully detoxify their clients. This program consists of a protocol of medically supervised exercise, time spent sweating in a dry sauna and scientifically formulated nutritional supplements that target the fatty tissue to release the residual drug and alcohol toxins and metabolites.
The New Life Detoxification program is a process that takes several weeks. While it can be a challenging part of the rehabilitation process, the results program participants gain from completing the sauna detoxification program are numerous. Within the first week of the New Life Detoxification program clients begin to have color back in their face, their eyes appear brighter and clearer and their energy levels increase. As they progress through their sauna detox program clients comment that they are sleeping better at night and waking well rested in the morning. Their mood swings diminish and their anxiety levels balance out leaving them feeling more centered and balanced than they have felt in years; often when this portion of the Narconon Fresh Start program is complete client’s state that they feel more like themselves and more alive and healthy than ever before.
I feel a lot better after completing sauna detoxification; I no longer crave drugs and I want to lead a healthy life. I am sleeping all night, which is a drastic improvement from when I first started the program. A big thank you to all the staff and sauna buddies who helped me get through the New Life Detoxification Program.
I know that completing this drug rehab program will benefit me in more ways than just ending my addiction. I’ll be able to have a real relationship with my family again. It has been years since I’ve been able to be in the same room with them without wanting to leave immediately. Now, with sober eyes I see that all their meddling and questions were out of love and concern for me. With the skills that I’ve learned here at Rainbow Canyon Retreat I’ll be able to have healthy conversations with them and not turn to drugs because I’m feeling overwhelmed or cornered.
