Plant Medicine and Natural Supplements to Reduce or Eliminate Chemical Over-the-Counter and Prescription Medications
Mary Helen has specialized in helping her clients switch from toxic chemical pharmaceuticals to herbs and nutritional supplements for the past 30 years. She has had tremendous success with natural remedies to treat the symptoms of, and heal the underlying causes of disease. Some medications can easily be replaced, while others need to be reduced gradually with the help of your prescriber. People try multiple times to get off of anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, steroids and other pharmaceuticals, only to experience such strong withdrawal effects that they are forced to continue the drug. However, many report success with the support of herbs and acupuncture. Acupuncture detox protocols are used around the world to help ease the withdrawal process from addictive substances, such as tobacco, alcohol, and recreational and pharmaceutical drugs.
