I have finished dumping out my meds, except for 2 I know I have to wean off of. I'm one of those people who gets worse health wise every time they add something new. It is craziness on my part to keep taking something that is destructive to my health, instead of helpful. My body does NOT like lab produced meds!
The latest offender is a blood pressure med. (unable to take most due to allergy or serious side effects) I spent today, all day Saturday, with recurrent chest pains like 30 minute heart attacks. Been there, done that, and know it is the med to blame. I'm detoxing my system, and taking it easy until this crud is out of my system. If I hit the ER, I know they would admit me. I am not advocating anyone else do this, but it is the choice I've been forced to make. My body is weird.
My doctor's answering service won't page him and yes I consider this an emergency, my EKG is already messed up. I have clean coronary arteries, stumped the cardiologist, and was dismissed. He was as helpful as the neuro who didn't want to figure me out - 3 visits, no tests done, and wrote scripts for 2 meds I already had told him I was unable to take. There's more and worse horror to tell but I'll spare everyone.
So yes, modern western medicine has lost all of my trust. I'll trust my own heart and God, and find a better way towards wellness. Nutrition and supplements. natural healing helps, PT, massage, exercise as I am able, ancient healing traditions, whatever it takes. And I'm handing them back the ABC list of 42 and I stopped counting diagnosis too.
I'm not physically well, but I intend to do whatever I can that is helpful, and loving towards myself, to get as close to it as possible. I really don't give a rat's backside any more who disagrees, from my family and friends to anyone else.
If I'm not welcome here because I will not advocate big pharma meds and pill pushing doctors, it's alright, I will go.
safe to come back out now.
