My doctor had a medicine for everything and none of them worked!
THIS TIME LAST YEAR…
I’m an allergic person. I was diagnosed with eczema younger than I can remember, and some of my earliest memories involved my mother slathering my skin down with hydrocortisone and calamine lotion.
I was also told there was no cure for any of this. It was just “the luck of the draw.”
This time last year I was on over a dozen medications, including: 2 types of antihistamines plus antihistamine eye drops and three courses of prednisone; nasal spray and asthma puffer; three cortisone creams and ointments; specialist low-allergy hair shampoo; heavy moisturiser for my crazy dry skin that hurt, cracked and peeled; and a few others as well.
I was not well, but all my doctor could do was prescribe me more drugs and say it was “genetic”. I was miserable.
Furthermore, my doctor said my blood sugar was rising and I was likely to be diagnosed diabetic soon.
THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
My doctor was giving me drugs that masked, rather than healed my illness. That clearly wasn’t working, as I was getting sicker and sicker, so I dumped my doctor and began to find out more about my actual illnesses, and how they were caused.
The rest is history.
ONE YEAR ON…
One year on, I’m a different person. I’m on NO medicines at all, and I need none of them. I’m healthier, happier and thinner. While not where I want to be yet, regarding weight, I’m on a good path and heading in the right direction.
I’ll talk about how I’m doing all this in upcoming posts. And I’ll be clear: I am NOT a doctor and have no medical training.
However, I’ll also point out that no doctor could help me. I needed to help myself.
So read on, and I’ll share what I’m doing and how it’s going. You might want to give it a try too, especially if you’ve been down the path I’ve been on.
Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of health.
