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.

Heal with whole foods: transform body/mind/spirit. Heal drug damage too

I’m sharing a book today. Healing With Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition. The reason I was drawn to this work is because Paul Pitchford understands my experience with food as psychedelic and about food “reactions” having correlates in the psyche. Reactions that remain biological and physiological realities that can even be deadly at times. They act like true allergies. Healing requires engaging body/mind and spirit all. I love that this is intrinsic to his work.

Eating real whole food is important to our mental and physical wellbeing #foodie Friday

Many people who withdraw from psychiatric drugs discover excessive food sensitivities…we’re forced to change the way we eat. It seems that it may be wise for everyone to think about what they’re putting in their bodies. More and more people are also discovering this the hard way (by getting sick one way or another…psychiatric drugs just seem to be an extra catalyst). … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Many people who withdraw from psychiatric drugs discover excessive food sensitivities…we’re forced to change the way we eat.

The woman in the below video was triggered to action when one of her children had a reaction to food. Her talk is an important part of the picture. It’s a great introduction to the issue of what has happened to our national food supply.

Food for thought or contemplation

I’m mostly not blogging anymore, it’s true, but I do still jot down thoughts from time to time. I’m sharing a bunch of those thoughts from the last couple of months. I’ve included links in some of them where you might find more similar thoughts explored and collected here on the website. They are a loose sort of documentation of my process as it continues. Be well. Remember, healing is not a linear process! Love to you all.

Shades of awakening interview: food sensitivities and the psyche

In this interview, we talk about:
*The relationship between food and the psyche
*How healing and detoxing with whole foods can actually unearth past memories and emotions
*Why informing yourself with science AND your own inner knowing is key to finding out what works for you
*What your gut health has to do with your emotional and mental health

Food and diet for profound healing

I didn’t choose it in any conscious manner…the path chose me by necessity. Healing this particular heinously injured body required this particular sort of consciousness…I love Paul Pitchford’s work…he articulates everything my body/mind has been learning over the years and supplies answers to numerous outstanding questions. This is a little excerpt from his brilliant, seminal, encyclopedic book. – This is where mindfulness with food leads to eventually…with consciousness and practice.

Homemade ghee (clarified butter) #Foodie Friday

It’s been a long time since I did a food post. I suppose some of you don’t know that I do that sometimes. There is a collection here on Beyond Meds. I also have a food blog that I’ve not posted on in a long time that has a lot more variation because I was doing it while my diet kept changing and changing as I learned what my body needed at any given time. …
