More Prescription Drugs"
by Sue Ellen Dickinson
the most frequently asked questions I get is....."did you continue
taking your medications along with the nutritional supplement
program you started, and how long did you continue taking those
prescriptions after that?"
is ...."yes, I continued taking the medications my doctor prescribed
without interruption at first." But once I began to see
that there was a real difference in how I was beginning to feel,
especially after doing my first colon detox, I made the
voluntary decision that it was high time I started getting off
all those drugs.
when I began detoxing, and taking the nutritional supplements,
the improvements were so slight and subtle I thought maybe I
was entering another period of remission. But after a few
weeks of taking these "baby steps" in overall improvement
and progressively feeling a little better and stronger, I felt
the time had come for me to take deliberate action of my own,
and try to get off those prescription drugs.....permanently!
I knew these
pharmaceuticals were medical protocol for someone like me with
MS, and my doctor prescribed them with my best interest at heart. But
the truth of the matter was, that I didn't feel they were doing
me any good. In fact, the side effects were awful, leaving
me ( among other things) feeling dopey, drowsy, and 'out
of it', like I was living life (if you could call it that) on
another planet, and outside the general flow of the rest
of humanity around me.
I felt like
I was dangling in a Twilight Zone kind of limbo, unable to connect
properly with my natural senses. I felt isolated, and I
didn't like that one single bit!
with all the courage I could muster, I told my doctor what I
planned to do. He knew I'd already completed the colon
detox program, but now I was laying these new plans out in front
of him, and I was met with a cold, icy stare of abject disapproval.
I knew these
were very powerful drugs I was taking, and it wasn't a safe
idea to try and get off them all by myself. I needed his
help, and asked for a tapering-off schedule. After giving
me the long-winded version of how I shouldn't even entertain
this wild hair of an idea, he could plainly see that I meant
business and wasn't going to take 'no' for an answer.
he wrote out a tapering off schedule with instructions how I
could get off these medications.....slowly at first, but nevertheless,
the road I needed to travel that would lead me to becoming prescription
do I attribute partial success to having eventually accomplished
this mammoth achievement, but also to such simple things as
a change in my diet. I broke my bad habit of eating processed
and prepackaged foods. Fast foods, dairy and soda pop became
things of the past.
today I avoid them altogether. I eat a lot of fresh steamed
vegetables and raw salads. Fish and chicken became staples
in my diet, and of course I use everything that's organic as
much as possible.
these changes, I began detoxing my body at least twice a year. I
still do that today. And, I also learned how important
it is to incorporate a strict daily regimen of nutritional supplements.
another question I often get is...."well, did you go back to
your doctor and tell him what you did and how successful you
I did, but frankly, he didn't want to hear about it. Again,
I knew deep down my doctor had my best interests at heart,
but he didn't want to know about anything I'd done solo on my
own that produced positive results, when his methods clearly
failed. His mindset was that only the list of prescription
drugs he made available was the only answer to my MS problems.
I beg to
differ. The bottom line is that for me the natural approach
to healing ultimately worked whereas the pharmaceutical industries'
chemical concoctions did not.
to walk away from that. I know I made the right decision
to take the natural approach to healing...... even though I learned
the hard way that everything we need to sustain life and
good health has been put right here on the face of the earth. It's
there for the taking.....if only we're willing to open our eyes
and look for it. And then have the courage to apply it.
I did. And even though it wasn't easy by any measure, it
was more than well worth the effort. After all, that decision
ultimately gave me my health back. It gave me my life back.
