Luxury Sober Living and The Benefits

June 27th, 2014 9:55 am

Much of the demand for space in these facilities is being driven by individuals who spent time at a luxury residential drug rehab center, and want continued access to the types of amenities they experienced while in treatment there.

Although the cost of luxury sober living may be prohibitive to some, there are some undeniable benefits to this high level of care, including:

The cuisine. Luxury sober living homes offer their residents the finest, healthiest cuisine available. Many will either staff a full-time chef, and others will have meals catered to the facilities every day. Either way, the meal plans are designed to help individuals get healthy and discover ideas for their new eating regimens.

The amenities. Comfort is an essential part of luxury sober living. As such, these residences are stocked with comfy furniture, high-definition televisions and other top-of-the-line home accents. The idea is to create a comfortable living space where the individual can better ease back into the real world following rehab.

The location. Sober living homes can be found anywhere, in any community around the United States. But luxury sober living is generally located in nice neighborhoods with quiet streets and gorgeous vistas.

The staff. Every luxury sober living home is overseen by a staff of professionals whose job it is to make sure that the residents needs are met and that everyone is able to live in a safe environment.

The aftercare. Luxury sober living homes are well-connected into the aftercare community. That means residents have greater access to follow-up counseling programs and other means of maintaining sobriety. Sober living home coordinators may even arrange for meetings on site on transportation to groups and meetings.

Individuals who live there are all expected to follow a strict set of rules regarding guests, chores and of course substance abuse (immediate grounds for expulsion). The goal of every sober living home is to help recovering addicts re-learn the responsibilities that they abandoned in the name of alcohol or drug addiction.

Sober living is a transitional step between rehab and life. Just because a facility offers four-star amenities to its residents does not mean that important lessons aren’t being learned and new habits are being born.

7 Considerable Ways to Health and Longevity for Your Pets

October 25th, 2013 3:08 am

1. Know the current level of health. Most health problems are the result of an underlying energy imbalance. As we cure animals of “disease”, we find that other things we thought were normal go away. Your goal is for your animal to have great energy, no doggy odor, no hairball vomiting, little shedding, a glowing coat and many more. Go to the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy for a complete list of these signs. In young animals, these apparently “normal” problems may be the only indications to start exploring new options for lifestyle or treatment.

2. Feed the best. What are the best diets for people or animals — the most processed or the freshest, most organic? The best ingredients should be the most consciously raised – local, organic vegetables, free ranging protein sources. Briefly, the best diet for dogs and cats is raw meat including raw bones, pureed raw and cooked vegetables and a few supplements (Calcium if no bones are eaten is critical). Start as young kittens and puppies. Second best is same quality, but cooked. Even grocery store quality meat and vegetables are much better than most processed foods. Commercial raw food diets can be great to medium quality. Every animal needs and wants a different combination at different times in their lives, just as we do. With any food, observe each of your animals for the effect that food has on them.

3. Vaccine the least. Researchers in conventional veterinary medicine agree that we vaccinate too often, in too many combinations, and that this level of vaccination, while preventing epidemics, is harmful to the health of susceptible animals. The AVMA now recommends that cats and dogs only be vaccinated every 3 years. On-going studies show that antibodies are high 10 and 16 years later, so I recommend just a few baby shots then only rabies as needed to be legal. The insert in vaccine packages says “Give only to healthy animals”, so if your animal is ill in any way, or undergoing treatment, they should not be vaccinated. Vaccinated animals often develop many chronic conditions including cancer.

4. Use the fewest chemicals. Each animal is an individual and will respond differently to heartworm, flea and tick preventatives. Some are very sensitive to chemicals used in the yard or the house. Chemicals in foods can cause allergic type reactions. Healthy yards have lots of weeds. House cleaners can be made from foods and microfibril cloths clean like a charm. Healthy animals never get fleas and ticks.

5. Understand how animals become ill and how they heal. First there is an energetic imbalance (they are just not right), then functional (the dog is itchy), then inflamed (skin is red, infected, swollen and hot) and finally tissue changes (thick, black skin). Results of any treatment can be no change, amelioration (current symptoms disappear with no other improvements, then return), suppression (current symptoms disappear and they become more ill) or a cure (everything about the animal to begins to improve, especially the overall energy level.) Keeping a journal is critical to determine what treatments are helping problems to become less frequent and less severe. You can stand firm with what you feel is working even if your professional disagrees and change approaches when needed.
