People can only lead a balanced and happy life when all three areas of their being are in harmony with one another and free from symptoms of deficiency.
Our experience at the Dr. Albrecht Health Academy over many years has taught us that treating just one of these subareas on its own or in isolation does not achieve stabilisation, or only does so for a very short time. With the illness that has brought you to us, you are in a life crisis. As far as possible, a crisis requires comprehensive, expert and experienced treatment of all the aspects that have caused it to be triggered. It is usually the case that having knowledge, taking medication as the only treatment for an addiction, or even being given warnings and threats does not lead to any improvement, and in most cases these even result in the situation deteriorating. There are also feelings of guilt and shame, social exclusion and stigmatisation, as well as problems at work, with partners or with family members. Simply giving up alcohol, drugs or other harmful, addictive substances or habits often only lasts for a short time, because this does not address or treat the actual causes. These approaches only treat the symptom, and not the illness itself.
At our Health Academy we will care for you and treat you holistically, individually for your own specific problems and needs, and as intensively as possible.
In most cases the psyche comes under severe attack, as both the cause and the consequence of the addictive behaviour. This not only calls for intensive research into the causes and an appraisal of the psychological wounds, but also a form of “reprogramming” needs to be undertaken. Harmful patterns of behaving and thinking have to be broken, changed or “overwritten”. But on its own this is not enough.
How often in recent weeks have you read a book or gone to a concert? Your mental activities are probably greatly restricted by your life crisis, or might even have been lost altogether. How are things with your spirituality or belief? Do you believe in (a) God or a higher being, or do you feel abandoned and alone in a vacuum? Are you still able to be happy? About your partnership, children, grandchildren, job etc? Do you still enjoy the things you used to do with passion?
We have to work together intensively and comprehensively here, to reawaken your “animal spirits” and teach you to feel joy and happiness again. It will happen. And it is an essential basic factor for your recovery and stability.
Exercise and sporting activity are also an essential part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The objective of our gentle exercise therapy, which is individually tailored to your level of fitness, is not just to strengthen you muscles, bones and joints. It will also strengthen your immune system, prevent cardiovascular disease, and you will have one of the best stress management and relaxation techniques to hand. Our experienced and broadly trained sports therapists will gently and carefully reintroduce you to exercise and sporting activity. Our aim is for you to have fun and enjoyment, and you will be under no pressure to perform. You yourself will determine the duration and intensity.
