As a comprehensive behavioral health facility, Casa Palmera understands that eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction, and trauma are not only physically exhausting, but also cause a breakdown in mental and spiritual sense. What makes Casa Palmera distinct from other treatment facilities is our desire to not only heal the body, but also aiming to heal the mind and spirit. Casa Palmera is a consistently successful program because with our holistic perspective, we analyze the physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values and challenges of each individual in recovery.
There are, however, factors that make a difference, the NIAAA reported; how much and how often a person drinks is number one. A growing body of research suggests drinking alcohol moderately can improve a person’s health. Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found drinking seven drinks per week (one per day) was associated with lower risk of heart failure in men and a 16 percent lower risk in women compared to those who didn’t drink at all. One study published in Vaccine even found moderate alcohol improves the immune system’s response to vaccines.
