She (as I was informed) had Depression, was Bi-Polar or Schizo Effectiveness where she hears voices and gets angry easily. She talks quite loud and is Passive-Agressive. Top that off with PMS and smoking a 12 pack of cigarettes per day and 2 liters of pop to boot. Overweight and seeming not to care about any of it. She trusted me enough to tell her story and I told her I would besides the fact that I assured her I would not give her real name.
She was on Wellbuchin(a mood pill that treats massive mood disorders), Latitude(a drug for breathing), Seroquel(another depressive order drug or bi-polar and schizo plus it helped her sleep) and Abilify(again for depression).
I started talking to her a little bit about pop and how to much was not good for a person. I mentioned cigarettes as being harmful and encouraged her to cut down. A month ago and now this month she informed me she has tossed all the drugs except Abilify. She has cut down to less then a pack a day on cigarettes, and only a 2 liter of pop a day also. She has lost 18 pounds in less then 2 months and looks so much better.
I am so proud of this young lady. I told her that and gave her a couple big hugs and lots of praise. She basked in that and well she should. She has and is still fighting a battle to become her without all this crap in her body. I applaud her for doing so.
I am against the use of Big Pharma stuff in one's body. For every problem there is a natural solution.
It is all in the wanting, learning and being determined to do it that way. Should you choose not to that is your choice to do so. Should you choose to do it the natural way then again, that is your choice. But the Government and Big Pharma would not like to let you have that choice.
Many illnesses are due to a wanton and carefree lifestyle. Why haven't all these pills that are pushed solved the problems? Heart disease and cancer still exist. Why? Millions of dollars and hours of research later these problems are still with us. The list could go on and on. Food is heated and pasteurized killing most of the nutrients that exist in them. Fortified food is full of chemicals. Our water is fluoridated which is poison to our bodies.
Our ancestors did not suffer from these diseases. Maybe they died early from other things but not that. We have a diet anymore that is suicidal. Just read your children's cereal boxes and you will be if you have any knowledge astounded and sick to your stomach. Of course they like the taste. Who would not like it with all that sugar and preservatives. It is geared to be in attractive boxes, look pretty and appealing and the ads on TV.....well....what child would not want it.
But I digress as this is more about a young lady and her desire to fight back and stop the insanity of all the drugs she was on. She still has a long way to go to change her diet to more healthy stuff. Whether she will ever buy organic is another story. With all those problems she does not have a job and may never have one or at least for a long time.
She receives her monthly government check so her budget is limited. But even so, if she gives up the junk and eats healthier and exercises she will improve and that my friends is something to be applauded. She does want to eventually get out in the world and get a job and I hope she succeeds. I hope to continue to be part of this adventure she is embarking on and to encourage her in this endeavor.
