    Lightbulb Alternative Approaches

    Its often repeated that the huge failing within mainstream medicine is its inability to address the source. Of course our medical establishments do a great job at treating the symptoms and looking after the sick. In fact the medical industry does this so well that most of the sick care less to heal. I don't know about you, but for me this process is getting old. Thankfully many people are wising up and opting out for alternative approaches; with good results. Helping to define where the medical industry is going wrong helps us to avoid making the same mistakes. Thats what this thread is all about. Finding new paths that lead to a self sustaining, happier and healthier life.

    I am a big fan of looking at the root cause of why anxiety occurs in the first place. I believe if you heal the root cause, the anxiety goes into remission.

    A good article that explains some recent research is called "gut feelings the future of psychiatry may be inside your stomach," if anyone wants to Google it.

    I don't have much faith in psychiatry; sadly. Unfortunately, my regular GP won't prescribe anything narcotic (I only require a low dosage of 5MG Valium for the rough times) and I don't like antidepressants at all. I've already tried almost all of then and they usually make me worse in the end. I have trouble remembering to take them regularly and skipping/missed doses is counterproductive to its benefit. A simply benzo to break through the anxiety attacks is best for me, but I have do do without and I don't have the money to see therapists with regularity, so I'm always searching for alternative approaches.

    Its a shame.. All I've asked for is something to help me with the anxiety attacks so I can maintain my sobriety. I can't go back to alcohol as it was only masking my illness and leaving me depressed and suicidal and hungover and destroying my physical health, and I've explained this to my doctor and its become even more apparent that the medical system couldn't give a hoot about my well-being.

    If you take the time to find and read the article, you'll discover that it has nothing to do with meds or Psychiatrists, and everything to do with healing the imbalances in your body. Namely, the gut-brain connection.

    Warmly,
    Jennifer

    Not sure where the article is but I will link Google for starters:
    Google Search

    I often like to provide links to specific articles/blogs and whatnot as it's not uncommon for many of us suffering with anxiety and likewise "disorders" to struggle with finding things in a list. Thus far I have only been skimming the first hit at the above google link I just shared above:

    >This One<

    Thx Jennifer ... I will favorite and look more into this. If in the mean time your able to link the specific article you referring to; that would be greatly appreciated. I'm very interested in this. As am still only skimming - I am always wary of agendas. Interesting none the less. Great share. TY!

    Yes - you found it!

    I had tried to post the link in the first time, but I wasn't permitted to on the forum because I hadn't yet posted 30 times. Glad you could do it for me...it's a juicy article!
