Do you want to get off prescriptions? A prescription medication is what a physician prescribes for a symptom. In order to stop meds, there are some steps you can take.
Step 1. Tell your doctor to monitor you while you're making healthy changes.
You do not have to ask their permission, but let them know what changes you're making. If there is a reasonable conflict, then change your plan. For example, say you wanted to go on a grapefruit diet but were taking a prescription medication that prohibitively that. The doctor would be able to let you know that grapefruit has been shown to interfer with some enzymes that break down certain drugs in our intestines and liver, increasing blood levels of the drug which could lead to a higher risk of serious side effects. For this reason, any grapefruit product including dietary supplements that contain grapefruit flavonoids, can cause the same problems. In this situation, you would change your plan. Let's continue with the steps.
Step 2. Nourish your cells.
This is a big step. If you do not take this step, there's NO WAY you'll ever get off prescriptions. The reason? You can not eat the foods necessary to provide your body with the nourishment it needs to stay healthy, fight illness, and prevent disease. Unless you eat foods grown in nutrient substance soil, allowed to ripen on the vine, and ate without processing, it is impossible to get balanced nutrition. Plants get nutrients from the soil as they grow and ripen. If you pick an orange from a tree that has not got good soil, it will not have the 90mg of Vitamin C that it should have. Especially if picked early. Shipping foods, changes in temperature, and storage are also factors that depletes foods of nutrients. Then, we process the food. When I first heard about processing, I was not exactly sure what people were talking about. As I learned, it's not just fast foods, it's basics foods.
Let's look at eggs. They have really gotten a bad rap!
Once the agricultural revolution began, chickens were packed in together for large scale production. Then, they were fed readily and given hormones and antibiotics to keep up production and minimize illness. There is still an intense loss of these animals because of their lifestyle, just like us!
So … when you get the egg, it's very easy to break because it has a thin shell (the first sign of a bad egg). The yolk is pale (compared to a good egg), and the whites are, well, runny. Enzymes are lost and protein denatured when you cook an egg. I do not eat uncooked eggs though. Yuck! Some people do, and achieve the benefits. Did you know that an egg from a chicken that is not raised under those conditions has such strong nutrition, that it will balance cholesterol levels even when cooked? In our family, we eat up to 10 eggs a week – per person! No …
