More on food sensitivities and healing with whole food

These are not complete or exhaustive lists. I'm simply sharing this for illustrative purposes without a whole lot of commentary. Suffice it to say a lot of people develop severe sensitivities (including food) when they withdraw from psychiatric drugs. It's a possible manifestation of the challenged and injured autonomic nervous system. More information about food sensitivities and healing from them is included in the links at the bottom of this post.

Returning to Dialogue – The Core of Healing Madness

When people are “mad,” they are often insisting that certain things are so, and frequently seem unwilling or incapable of appreciating or learning from other perspectives. Yet when the supposedly “sane” mental health system approaches those who are mad, it typically does the same thing ...

May we all honor the mystery of our individual paths

When I was in the throes of my life's worst trials I was only occasionally able to deeply appreciate how I was growing and evolving. I'm now often grateful for my heinous experience - I've learned so many things. I also acutely remember what it was like to be in the dark.
