This article highlights some of these challenges in the design of lifestyle studies in PD, and suggests a more coordinated international effort is required, including ongoing longitudinal observational studies. In combination with pharmaceutical treatments, healthy lifestyle behaviors may slow the progression of PD, empower patients, and reduce disease burden. For optimal care of people with PD, it is important to close this gap in current knowledge and discover whether such associations exist. Introduction Parkinson's disease (PD) is an age-related complex progressive neurodegenerative disorder, with key p...

CONCLUSIONS: The results from this first-of-kind pilot study suggest that including BJJ as a complementary treatment to standard therapy for PTSD may be of value. It will be necessary to validate these promising results with a larger subject cohort and a more rigorous experimental design before routinely recommending this complementary therapy.

Evidence Based Approach As understandings of addiction and addiction recovery change, we constantly work to bring best practices into our treatment protocol. We recognize that not every treatment works for every person, so we use our resources carefully to gain access to all the latest therapies available. No two addictions are the same, no two circumstances are the same and no two people are the same. This means that no two addiction treatment should be the same, and everyone has an individualized plan using different main therapies that are available. With all treatment plans that are developed, evidence-based practices ...

The Therapeutic Alliance Simply put: the Therapeutic Alliance is the mutual bond between therapist and client, as well as the willingness from the patient to immerse in the treatment experience. While it seems like a little thing, it is the most powerful factor in the process of emotional and psychological healing, according to MentalHelp.net. If you do not trust your therapist, you will not be able to fully open up to them and have honest conversations. Without this openness, there will be no progress made on your past trauma. Without progress made on your past trauma, your addiction will fester again in the future and th...

Becoming serious about recovery When someone is in treatment, it isn’t always by choice. Sometimes, family and friends have to rally together and stage an intervention in order for their loved one to see that they need help. They are given harsh guidelines and consequences should they choose not to go, and are often feeling like they were “forced” against their better wishes. Some people who enter in these circumstances do so reluctantly, hoping to just work through the motions and get out as quickly as possible. However, there is hope for a successful recovery for each and every client who enters treatme...

Our Approach Cliffside Malibu is a world class luxury drug and alcohol treatment center. We want you to recover for good, and we do that with seven major factors. 1. We Stand By Our Commitment To Your Success. Our main goal is: We only want you to come to treatment once. 2. We Recognize The Root Cause Of Addiction As Pain/Trauma. Most treatment programs are based on the 12 Step Model.

While we use 12 Steps as an adjunct to other forms of therapy, we work to help ...

What is holistic therapy? Holistic therapy is defined as non-medicinal recovery methods. At Cliffside, we use holistic therapy to complement traditional treatment practices. Holistic therapy aims to bring the mind, body and spirit into alignment. It focuses on the patient’s overall well-being while also treating physical symptoms of addiction and withdrawal. They can be very beneficial to addiction therapy because they can be calming, healing outlets to use in place of old behaviors. They support the constant growth of each patient – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Holistic therapy aids in he...
