I never know anymore how to even approach this subject as this has gone so far away from anything that is real or sane that it defies description. Its as if those that practice this 'medicine' are so far in the dark of fear and not knowing that they continue to bury themselves without concern.
Lately I have been coming across a lot of people who are taking medication needlessly. Heavy duty drugs like anti-psychotics and highly addictive antidepressants - given to children, teenagers and everyone in between, for seemingly any reason. Rather than deal with the issues that are causing anxiety etc, why not just eliminate it with a chemical cocktail and voila - choose your emotions!
We have arrived in the world of falseness - to the point where we cannot feel anything and if you do, shut it down, rather than deal with something unpleasant. Or worse yet, why would we bother to work it through step by step until it is sorted. Of course, this is where food comes into the picture.
I, and a lot of other people have long ago discovered that when you change the way you are eating you also change the way you think, feel and perceive the world around you. Taking a chemical cocktail is not ever the answer - not when you can make such a difference to your life by removing toxins such as sugar and feel better immediately.
I was reading a report recently on the fact that nearly one million people a year die from being given the wrong (combinations as well) or too much medication in the US. This is astounding - all I could think about was the fact that this is hardly even reported and certainly not talked about.
The next time you are unwell, think carefully about your choices. Why not change the way you are eating and take some herbal teas until you are feeling well again.. Or better still, make those changes now and start using some herbs in your diet to strengthen your mind and body.
Which herbs? Well, they do not have to be exotic or anything out of the ordinary. Kitchen herbs such as parsley, coriander, sage, thyme, basil and many others add vitamins and minerals to our cooking and diets in a gentle tasty way. And invigorate our immune systems at the same time.
Something to think about before you reach for the chemicals and poison yourself...
