No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Well, my paxil weaning is over. My body doesn't seem to be able to function at a high level with less than 30mgs, which is a small dose. I was hoping to be free of meds but if I can't function on my job and if I'm SNAPPY with my family, what's the point. So for now, its back to 30 mgs a day.
I've had bad panic attacks the last week or so & haven't been able to work. While I'm still highly raw and vegetarian, I don't like feeling this way. It's…Continue
I have been at 15mgs now for 3 weeks. My next level will be 13.5mgs which I will start Friday. I haven't been below 15mgs since '97.
I have had NO side effects and have been feeling great ( except when I eat SAD junk food).
I had a totally AWSOME experience last Saturday. I went to North Bay, MD with 80 youth from our church.We did a POLAR BEAR PLUNGE in the Chesapeak bay. It was one of the most exilarating experiences of my 57 yrs!!! …Continue
Happy New Year!!
I am now down to 15mgs a day. The 1st couple of days after reducing, I can be somewhat touchy but for the most part I've been free of the terrible side effects people suffer when they try to reduce or stop an anti-depressant.
Food does make a HUGE difference. If you lay off the excito-toxins in most SAD food, you'll be less anxious. I'm in a great place right now with my food choices. I'm not 100% raw but I am Almost 100%…Continue
I am continuing to wean from paxil. I'm down to 17.5 mgs. I started at 30 mgs 3 months ago. I have had NO negative side effects to speak of.
Still eating very high raw, about 90%, vegan 99.5%, but I did have veal parm at a Christmas party last Friday.
Today, I started to walk again. I did 1.5 miles. This program suggested that you not exerise unless you already were active but I just can't stand the feeling of my gut being on my lap…Continue
I am in sales & with having to talk to so many people I need to be sure my breath doesn't offend. I don't want all the sugar that's in regular breath mints & candy. Does anyone know of a natural solution that will help?
Thanks & God's Love to ALL
I'm down to 22.5 mgs of paxil with sunday the day I reduce to 20 mgs. No side effects to speak of although it has been intense the last couple of days with my Father-in-law's passing. The supplements are doing what the makers said they would.
I will be glad when things settle down a little & I can visit the HAB more often.
I had a rough patch this week. I was discouraged because I haven't made any sales this week & $8 hr don't cut it. However, my health is more important than ANYTHING so I'll have to press on!!
I have experienced NO side effects so starting Monday I will be reducing my paxil intake to 22 1/2 mgs. I know the omega 3, vit E & jnk supplements are working well because I have had no Zaps down the spine.
Be Blessed & go to church…Continue
My computer has been fixed after 3 weeks without one. I have started and am continuing my quest to free myself from paxil. I tried before but always failed. The side effects are awful.
Fortunately, I found a program on the internet called 'The Road Back'. They have been helping people for 13 years get free of various psyco-tropical drugs with great success. I ordered the supplements that are used with the plan and after 3 weeks I am down to 25 mgs from the…Continue
I will be starting a new journey next week. While I'm vegan for sure I have 1 medication left that I want to eliminate. I take 30mgs of paxil (paroxitine) every day. My previous attempts to get off it were failures. This is not a high dosage but I want med-freedom. I don't use an inhaler anymore & I want to be able to cleanse which is next to impossible while taking this drug.
I found this program called 'THE ROAD BACK'. The book is free as a…Continue
While I haven't totally mastered patience I have grown alot in the last 10 yrs or so. Since going vegan 2 yrs ago I noticed that the people around me always seem to tell me to slow down, you walk too fast, etc, etc. I can't speak for anyone else but I do know it's starting to piss me off. Don't misunderstand I know life is not to be rushed thru but a journey to be enjoyed. With ALL the energy from my new lifestyle, you'd think maybe they'd want to change but NO......…Continue
I am very excited about this initiative. I've only made it 4 days on a juice feast twice b4. My new job is VERY challenging but I get VERY motivated as spring comes into season. My goal is 10 days TOTALLY raw with 5 days juicing. I can almost feel my body detoxing as I write this post.
I hope everyone is as excited & motivated. 1,000,000 people not eating SAD. I guess the supermkts will be over-stocked for April.
I lost a total of 30 lbs in 2011. After some holiday slippage I'm ready to begin....again. Today will be smoothies & raw foods with some brown rice for dinner. The best news is I start a new job next Monday as a family counselor at a local cemetary. I will be getting trained & licensed so I need a clear head. I will be meeting people who have lost loved one's & sharing God's love & compassion with them on what is probably the worst day of their lives.
Stomach is very quezy today. I had about 1/2 gallon of juice today. Yesterday was a good day as well as wed. I will be eating tomorrow. I wanted to go longer but I forgot my grandson is having a party & NOT going isn't an option. I will be starting another feast after my bday on 11/13. I am VERY pleased I made it 3 days. Looking to extend the time in the near future.
Have a great wknd all.
God's Love to You..............
I had an awesome day 1 Wed. I had 1&1/2 pints of apple & pare juice. Because I had to teach a life group at church last night, the rest of my liquids were water & 1 glass of green tea. Walked about 1 mile b4 I picked my son up at school. Feeling good today also. Will post tomorrow.
Blessings to ALL...................
I was making plans last week to juice feast but then my mother-in-law passed away. I stayed vegan the entire time because I knew I would be juicing after the weekend was done. Her service was wonderful because we know she received Jesus b4 she passed on. My wife went back to work today & is still working her way thru grief but she gets stronger every day.What was sad was that she suffered so much from poor dietary choices & wouldn't change no matter how bad the results…Continue
I have been mostly raw (85%) and totally vegetarian for 3 months now. I still walk 2-3 miles 5-6 days per week. I've lost 35 lbs since 1/1/2011. I haven't seen 210 lbs since 1997. However, one of the drawbacks to eating so healthy is when I do slip & eat SAD my body really lets me know it is NOT pleased with my choices. I get tummy cramps & fell so lethargic. On the positive side this helps me stay on course. I would be curious to know if anyone else experiences…Continue
I've been busy these last 2 weeks or so & haven't posted so I thought I'd take time to do so today. I am 95% or more raw every day. I've been eating black bean burgers from bj's. My 13 yr old son & I do 3 miles every day & we do 3 sets of stair runs in the stands at the track. I finally set up the 'total gym' we purchased & am about to begin resistance training. My weight has been pretty steady. My wife has started to work out occasionally with…Continue
I have been pretty much 99% raw for the last 3-4 weeks or so. Ever since we purchased our vita-mix for Father's day I've been having two 2 qt. smoothies per day. I usually have cilantro & kale with banana & watermelon. For dinner I have spinach & watermelon. We just purchased some cantelope which I will have for dinner with spinach. I have been moving away from nuts except for the veggie nut burger spread I top my green salads with.
While shopping at Whole Foods last Friday, my son noticed the vitamix display where they were making fresh smoothies. Without my input, he ( mr. SAD himself) proceeded to taste the spinach,kale,orange,white grape,& apple smoothie they were sampling. He loved it!!! He said we should buy one because they were ONLY $399 & came with some extras. I explained to him that we just don't spend that much money without mom's ok. However, since mom has an easier time…Continue
I can't remember where I read it but raw food eating makes one able to tolerate extremely hot weather better than when they eat SAD. Since I've been very high raw all of 2011 We've had 4 days of 95+ & that's going to be the case the next 3 days also. When I ate mostly SAD we had to set our central air thermostat at 68. This year I set it at 75 & I still feel VERY comfortable, even upstairs. When I travel by car to where ever I keep the windows open rather than…Continue
