Agora's unique program provides the best possible option for treatment, offering an all-natural effective protocol with a 70% success rate achieved by collaborative clinics in the U.S. which administer the amino acid therapy along with counselling. Agora has added Naturopathic assessment, Infrared Sauna, Auricular Accupuncture, the Agora For Life Program, and Massage Therapy to ensure, and perhaps increase, this success rate.
Naturopathic Physical Work-up
A physical examination to diagnose overall health concerns and assess possibly compromised organs, diet and nutritional deficiencies, and to provide supplementation and herbs.
Licensed Naturopathic physicians conduct a thorough examination and create a personalised health program for you to use during and after you complete the Agora Protocol.
Other health issues which may be compromised by the use of drugs or alcohol are addressed, and you are given a 30-day supply of supplements and herbs to continue your program.
This is a gentle process of detoxification which eliminates toxins and allows stored drug and alcohol byproducts and metabolites to leave the body.
Saunas and steam baths have been used for centuries by many world cultures to induce detoxification.
Here's how it works:
Drugs and alcohol are filtered through the liver.
During the filtration process of food or chemicals ingested, by-products are created as protein-based molecules called metabolites.
These metabolites are stored in the fatty tissue of body and brain because both fat cells and drug metabolites are protein-based and therefore have a natural affinity for each other.
These stored metabolites can continue to cause problems for people with alcohol or drug issues, even after they have stopped using.
Therefore it is imperative to detoxify the body and then repattern the brain, thus eliminating the stored metabolites and regenerating and repairing the neuroreceptors of the brain.
We do this through infrared sauna sessions, which scientific research has shown to greatly assist in the elimination of these accumulated and stored toxins.
Without using needles, accupuncture points are stimulated to balance the flow of energy to the body, reduce anxiety and depression and enhance a calm state of mind.
Research indicates that when the ear is stimulated by acupuncture (with or without needles), an electrochemical response in the brain releases naturally-occuring neurochemicals such as endorphins and dopamine, which reduce anxiety and depression and in turn, promote a sense of well-being.
It also opens up the energy channels throughout the body, enhancing the next phase of treatment.
Neuroreceptor Repair and Regeneration
This unique, highly effective program combines the use of brain nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids to eliminate the craving, repair and repattern the brain and balance distressing emotions. It is gentle and long-lasting.
Drugs, whether prescription drugs (pain pills, antidepressants, stimulants, or benzodiazepines such as Ativan, Valium, Xanax, or Klonopin), alcohol, tobacco, or street drugs (methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, ecstasy, LSD, PCP and others) all have something in common: they overstimulate certain neurotransmitter receptors (nerves) in the brain. This is how they bring about their effects, but it is also how they cause lasting damage that leads to deeper addiction and the inability to handle the stresses of normal life.
NRR consists of an intravenous solution of amino acids (the building blocks that make up all the proteins in our bodies) which actually rebuilds the damaged areas of the brain. These basic amino acids are specially formulated to be able to penetrate and positively influence the brain. The brain can then function again much more normally, cravings disappear, stress levels become much more normal, and clarity of mind is restored.
When taking combinations of amino acids into the body, some will work against others. This is the way the body is designed so that it can ultimately get what it needs from the environment. Also, crossing the "blood-brain barrier" is a difficult process for most substances. Hence, the NRR formulas had to be designed so that only the proper amino acids which would not counteract each other were used, and so that they were very effective in actually penetrating the brain. NRR restores the body physically from the damage done by drugs or alcohol. The other major factor that will determine whether you succeed is your maturity level and strong personal desire to be done with drugs forever.
Agora For Life Program
The synthesis of several modalities which clears repressed trauma and re-establishes emotional, physical, and spiritual equilibrium.
Guilt can play an important role in lack of successful recovery. Drugs and alcohol are often used as a solution to relieve discomfort around not being able to resolve issues which come up in our lives. Then we feel guilty about our inability to solve the problem, and then we have further guilt around using drugs or alcohol to avoid dealing with it. This leads to great stress and our lives may start to spiral out of control.
Using a synthesis of modalities, Agora addresses guilt and other issues, enabling you to move forward in a positive way and to let go of old issues.
Deeply relaxing and restorative, massage further assists in the detoxification process by helping eliminate stored toxins from the body, while releasing physical pain and withheld emotional stress, often locked in muscles and tissues.
Massage therapy is the systematised manipulation of soft tissues for the purpose of normalizing them. Practitioners use a variety of physical methods including applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, or causing movement to the body. Therapists primarily use their hands, but may also use their forearms, elbows, or feet.
The basic goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being.
Touch is the core ingredient of massage therapy and also combines science and art. Practitioners learn specific techniques for massage and use their sense of touch to determine the right amount of pressure to apply to each person and locate areas of tension and other soft-tissue problems. Touch also conveys a sense of caring, an important component in the healing relationship.
When muscles are overworked, waste products such as lactic acid can accumulate in the muscle, causing soreness, stiffness, and even muscle spasm.
Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.
Therapeutic massage can be used to promote general well-being and enhance self-esteem, while boosting the circulatory and immune systems to benefit blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, digestion, and skin tone.
