Share your story of pharmaceuticals, sharing experiences-knowledge & alternatives. I understand that pharmaceuticals are important in some cases. But there are alternatives that worked fine before the Corporate market began. My concern is supporting the abusive uses and how our society is addicted to many. How our Doctors fail to want to cure but just mask symptoms not looking further to cure the problems. Knowledge of Nutrition and herbs Mother Earths medicine can heal. I understand this is just my opinion. I thought this topic was good. Sharing our experiences and knowledge may help someone. What works for one may not work for another, I do the best I can..  This link will take you to the page on this website that lists many helpful things and ways I have learned in the past. This link shows you a diet change to replace the need for pharmacy pills,

Antidepressants do not ease the longing for the deceased that grievers feel. So in most cases, treating grieving people for depression is ineffective. I do not agree with this article completely with it’s views how long to grieve. I have found my grief has taken longer for those I had closer relationship with and more memories to change from painful to heartwarming. I have journaled in another blog on this site.

STORY This is an amazing story on how your body will try to talk to you. Luckily this body belonged to someone who always tries to listen. This person I will call M for the story. So M has had a food allergy test before but had another more detailed recently that came up with very different results, we concluded the Lab that test matters. M was also having major mouth issues gums bleeding swelling M was even scheduled for major Oral Surgery as they did not understand what was going on. Before surgery M received the food test back and one of many kinds of Cinnamon was second on the list. I learned at this moment that there are many kinds of Cinnamon depending on the country it comes from. Well, M soon saw that M’s favorite new toothpaste was Cinnamon and yup you guessed it it was the same cinnamon on M’s list. M discontinued use. When M saw the Oral surgeon next he said this is not the same mouth, what happened and surgery was canceled. You just never know how your body will react to what you put in it is the moral of this story.

STORY When my Grandson was 3 his Dad would stress very important to not feed Grandson Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Burger King no fast foods.  Back then I did not understand but soon I studied and learned that his Dad had given me an eye-opening gift and then it began. Also my oldest daughter when listening to husband and I talk about how Potatoes and vegetables just do not taste as good as they use to, she says “try an organic potato and see what you think.” We did and never went back to non-organic potatoes. I felt saddened that we now had to shop Organic “higher cost” to get what we use to get before Organic was a thing. Currently Monsanto products “poisons” in my opinion where now being used to grow our foods.

STORY I have luckily created a habit over the last several years of a morning hot shower with stretching and expressing gratitude for my life and for the gifts from lost loved ones. I find this helps me mentally to avoid prescriptions. In past Spring and Summer times garden work, my back really hurt mostly when I got out of bed in the morning. The showers hot water and stretching with deep breathing the warm moist air gets things moving from that oh so stiff feeling. CBD or other creams help maybe. But I have a wonderful ice pack that I can fasten and wear around in the morning as I have my morning foods and drinks, getting ready for the day. After the ice pack, I am all better, it took a lot more than just swallowing a pill but I am glad I do it. This is what feels good to me and starts my days. When I came to the realization that my body discomforts can be lessened by diet n exercise I also found that SUGAR is so evil a big cause to my discomforts.

Knowledge Amazing the human body, enjoy this knowledge video, this is really long and educational.

Knowledge;The center in Berkley is also developing a program for educating the public about this rapidly advancing field of research. Initial experimental studies will use psilocybin, the principal psychoactive compound in magic mushrooms.“Psychedelics have a particular value later in life, because that is when you are most stuck in your patterns. They give you the ability to shake them loose,” he said. Yet, much remains unknown about the brain mechanisms behind the efficacy of psychedelic compounds in treating mental health disorders. Also poorly understood is the ability of these compounds to improve cognitive flexibility, alter visual perception, engender feelings of awe and change patterns of brain activity.
