There is a time for everything: odds and ends as they emerge…

Remember: inflammation, when not gone awry, helps the body heal. Everything has it’s place and time. *** Some people need to quit drinking coffee. Others need to start drinking it. Oh, hell, yeah. One person’s poison is another person’s medicine After a decade of not drinking coffee (because I really had to quit!) it is […]

Gut bugs and healing diets: prescription for profound healing

The bugs in our gut, good and bad, have consciousness. Good ones keep us happy and healthy. The bad ones mess with us in a multitude of ways. Many bad microbes colonize in ways that underscore and support neural pathways of trauma. As we heal our gut we heal both our minds and bodies. This is a synergistic relationship so one can work on emotional and psychological issues and heal the gut and one can also work on healing the gut and find that emotional and psychological issues also reveal themselves that way.

This collection was created with the intent to help those who are currently dealing with the iatrogenic (medically caused) injury from psych meds…so that they might know that we can heal from it all. The series was a weekly occurrence for some time a few years ago now. The series is also intended to help educate the masses to the realities that so many of us face. Protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal is real. It’s also sometimes gravely disabling. The fact is it’s largely denied in the medical community. We are routinely blamed and told that the experience is psychiatric…this leads to more drugging and sometimes forced drugging with the very drugs that have harmed us. This must end. …

About that which animates all of life…

Seems my thoughts as they’ve pertained to my healing process have been essentially planted by life-force so that I would achieve through my responses to my somatic experience, what was needed in order to heal the whacked out nervous system, gut, and immune systems etc. Never has it mattered if anything was clinically true or not…what mattered was that the narrative made sense to my ego so that I would follow directions and ultimately heal. …
