Stop Addictions and Compulsive Behaviors in Irvine CA

stressed woman

The disease of addiction is multi-factorial having genetic, metabolic, environmental, psychological and spiritual components. Addictions are our way to compensate for not feeling good about who we are. We seek temporary feelings of being satisfied and peaceful through substances or activities. It has been estimated that up to 20% of our nation’s population suffers from one of the following five addictions: Work, Food, Sex, Gambling and Chemical (nicotine, alcohol, drugs (both illegal and prescription), and even caffeine).

We can rebuild the normal “feeling good” pathways to your brain. It is possible to reset and rebuild your nervous system through the use of nutriceuticals, chiropractic techniques, and auriculotherapy. These protocols can break the addiction cycles for the person who is ready and willing to make a change.

Nutriceuticals
Nutriceuticals are nutrients used at levels to achieve pharmaceutical like changes in the body. They consist of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. In specific combination, these nutrients have been found to be effective in the treatment of addiction. They work by increasing the levels of chemistry in the brain necessary to make specific neurotransmitters. These same neurotransmitters are also seen in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. These messengers communicate to the brain a feeling of calmness and well being.

Chiropractic
Chiropractic medicine has begun its second hundred years with break through research in addictive/compulsive disorders. Chiropractic’s natural non-drug approach has been well recognized over the past one hundred years.

Included in this, is the recent finding that the Torque Release Technique has been shown to have a positive effect on brain function. The adjustment is a gentle procedure designed to have maximum benefit from minimum input.

Utilizing specific adjustments in conjunction with auriculotherapy and nutriceuticals has given the field of addiction and compulsive disorders an alternative to current drug therapy. This approach can be used safely with most current traditional forms of therapy.

Auriculotherapy
Auriculotherapy is similar to ear acupuncture but it uses no needles. A microcurrent stimulation is placed on reflex points on the outside of the ear. These points then send a message to the brain based on the location of the reflex point being treated. Most people feel only a tiny tingling at the ear reflex points during the treatment.

Imagine your brain as a computer. Inside this computer is a “map” of the body. This “map” is like using a computer’s keyboard or mouse to gain entrance into the system. With this system we are able to directly treat a number of problems and conditions through the “brain’s computer”.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

"I thank you Dr. Roch for helping me lead headache free days, and also for knowing that I was not doing something wrong in my every day life in order to not be able to deal with stress!"

- Leslie E.

"I can't sing enough praises over the care Dr. Roch gives each of his patients. When my son got hit in the head accidentally and his headaches came blazing back, Dr. Roch saw him immediately and had him back in headache free state once again. I don't even want to think of where my son would be without Dr. Roch. He has proved to be a blessing in our lives."

- Julie H.

"With periodic adjustments and stretching exercises recommended by Doctor Johnston, my posture is better, I can touch my toes. I have no aches and pains when I am in adjustment and my body is more flexible in general. I have become quite picky about how I want to feel now that I know what to look for as signs of trouble. Thank you Dr. Johnston."
