I'm writing this post to worn about the dependence on addictive pain drugs and to share the experience of getting off them.
I heard recently of someone's mentioning that the feeling of depression she felt after getting off the pain medication taken for just 1 day! was worse than the pain itself.
Memories started overflowing my mind this morning, and I had to release them: of my mom refusing morphine for the unbearable pain from the colorectal tumor, and my own experience.
I was given morphine after my unfortunate C-section. I was appalled when I discovered that! Being on that drug, I remember still feeling pain and inability to concentrate. My fear was for my baby - I did not want any more drugs entering his precious body. Therefore, I only took 1/2 extra strength Excedrin.
Recently, I got to know someone, who was on Methadone for the last 20 years. She was determined to get off this drug, even though. she still had many ailments, physical and old deep-seated emotional scars (since the age of 6-7!).
Our emotional scars become physical: the anger may effect the liver, for example. I do not really want to give more examples here, to create negative ideas in anybody's head. However, if you need to read more on this subject, check my post Essential oils for emotions.
The lady has been on her path of ridding off of medications. I really felt for her and wanted to give her my all.
A nutritional change, incorporating living foods, as well as the physical and emotional support were a must for her.
She had MANY, and I mean MANY health issues accumulated over the years as a consequence of taking medications and having surgeries. It is a cascading effect!
I find therapeutic grade essential oils most effective in balancing health.
Here are a few of the therapeutic grade essential oils / blends and products we used to support my friend in her quest.
- Valor (my personal favorite) - for emotional and physical support
- Valerian - for nervous system support
- Deep Relief - (another personal favorite, so diversified use) for healthy tissue support
- Juva Flex - for liver support
- Breath Again - for lung support
- DiGize and Digest & Cleanse - for digestion support
- Frankincense - a powerful emotional and physical booster
- Ningxia Nitro - for an energy boost
- Slique Tea - Ocotea Oolong Cacao
- Peppermint, Thyme, Lavender and others
She drank chaga tea, green juices, herbs, made fermented drinks, aloe and adhered to living foods.
What a transformation!
When you have a strong desire, there is a result!
One thing, I wish, she made a homeopathic remedy from the methadone. But...
She is off methadone and continuing on her quest for reclaiming her health! so that she can enjoy being with her grandchildren and children.
Love, awe and respect to you, my good friend!
