Courageously move forward (contemplations on healing)

Courageously move forward and into every feeling you ever were unable to feel due to oppressive circumstances. Feel them, let go and be free. Our nervous systems have recorded each and every instance of repression and denial. We have a store of tension from our ancestors as well. This store of repressed emotions, denial, violence etc is stored in our DNA. It is our “karma” …to be transmuted in this lifetime. …

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.

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.

Mental health and diet: nutrition and gut health

Healing is a shocking process: protracted psych drug withdrawal syndrome (iatrogenic brain injury)

Update: September 2016 — I felt like revisiting this post from a while back. As I re-enter my body the shock continues. The good part is I am finally able to feel and deeply process that shock. It’s taken over 6 years of being drug free to get to this point, but I am here. Entering the body in a big way. Being reborn, quite literally. (re-entering the body is part of healing from the extreme trauma that is the nervous system/brain injury from psychiatric drug iatrogenesis) I am grateful for everything now as I become more and more aware of what is happening. I’ve healed a great deal more since the writing of this post. I share it for those who are in various stages of this healing process. (basically the fight or flight response that has been in high gear for over a decade is remitting. I’m left with this body, shocked) it’s somehow as beautiful as it is difficult)
