Trifextra: Week Sixty-Two ~ Heal thyself.

A thought for healers,

saints and incarnations 

did not use medicines, 

they destroyed the root of malady 

balancing time and mindset, 

eternal time is unfathomed totality, 

to treat is to complete the incomplete.

  1. I work with the elderly and see lots of polypharmacy.
    I have bipolar disorder and so unfortunately can’t be completely without medication, but I take far less than what has been recommended to me by doctors. I take a low dose of Lithium Orotate, which is more bioavailable than lithium carbonate, and is available without prescription.
    I also take 5-HTP rather than prescription anti depressants, because the prescription stuff made me crazier than a shithouse rat, no joke.
    Meds aren’t one size fits all, they’re overprescribed, and many of them have not been studied for long term effects. In other words, they be scary!

    • Thanks for coming and sharing 🙂

      I too see a lot of unnecessary and sometimes useless medication around me. The economic model of medicine and healing is hurtful to say the least.

      Wish you good health friend.

  3. But I am still searching for the magic pill, you know the one, the pill that will solve all my problems! I so agree, too much meds out there…

    • Thanks for coming.

      I think we need to go forward but we do have to look for another more holistic way. The solution may not lie in tinkering with chemicals and genes – may be it is much more subtle.

  4. I agree with the use of relaxation, exercise and rest. Meds can make the difference between a comfortable life and misery. I have a sister with schizophrenia and I can tell you she has a quality of life with meds that would be achievable no other way. I have diabetes and control it with diet. However, when the day comes I can’t, I’ll take the meds.

    • I agree that to a certain extent meds provide some symptomatic relief and when used with cautioun may prolong life and to a certain extent quality of life too – yet the whole system is over dependent on chemicals.

      Often the chemicals in meds just help in releasing or freeing or making available chemicals that are already present in our body.
      So this may well be possible by more subtle and safer triggers.

      Thanks for coming and for your opinion 🙂

      • I think you need to reconsider your simplistic view. Someone with heart disease will take their meds. Someone with mental illness will jump at the excuse to not take their meds. They may become homeless or create a great deal of misery for themselves and the people they love. When you dispense this sort of advice, you are responsible for how it affects people.

      • I will give it more thought.

        However, I am sure that no sick person is going to pay heed to spinner of yarns and the people who are in the business of making medicines care for perceptive thought ….. they are too busy examining objective data.

        🙂

  5. I think medications are over prescribed, as a first resort…but I also believe there are times when it is necessary. I dislike medications because it seems like it starts a loop of medicating for the side effects.

    • A very sane view. Unfortunately there is lot of pressure prescribing and there is little effort to find non pharmaceutical solutions (or non surgical ones).

      Thanks for the interest 🙂

  6. It is a catch 22 situation-difficult to say if the meds are required or not.Ofc in our country,both you & me know what the game is-pvt practitioners-most of them are minting money-pharmas depending on them to push costly meds-hospitals have become the breeding ground for more of such shenanigans-sad to see such thgs!

    An insightful piece & loved the pic u used:-)
