A funny thing happened when I listened to my gut...

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

As some of you know I have been going through some wacko things with my muscles and nerves and that "they" want to reboot my central nervous system...

Well...I said no to all the drugs they were giving me to try...yes, some helped the pain, yes, some helped my anxiety, but it made me feel like an emotionless turd...that is so NOT me. No thanks!

I decided to try something...I stopped drinking green tea everyday (caffeine makes your nerves active...I didn't need that), I started wearing my mouth guard because of my headaches and anxiety, and I because I had a bit of soreness one night, I tried taking 2 Panadol....I have done the same thing for over a week and I feel great! Started getting back on my eating plan, and walking and I actually feel good.

Weird how simple things work sometimes. :) I think unless you experience stuff it's hard for you to tell people what to do. Doctors that don't know how it feels...anyone remember that movie with Denzel Washington where he would touch people and they would feel what he feels??? I often feel that way. Pay attention to your body. Trust your gut, and don't be afraid to try things that are logical and make sense to you!
Have a great week!

    emoticon I'm so glad that you found something that works for you. Doctors only know how to push medications. I had 2 doctors dropped me because I believe in holistic care. One told me that was witchery and the other told me. I'll see you when you need some real drugs. Now I see a doctor who believes in medical & natural pathways to medicine. Sometimes the simply things can heal us. We all don't need some type of pill to reboot our system. Great advice with the Green Tea. I cut back when I get aches and pains in my muscles and it always work. I get them mainly when I drink it and weight train on the same day. IDK what's going on with that, but it does help to not have the green tea on my weight training days. emoticon
