A Different Approach – ToxaPrevent

After about 11 years med-free = no prescription medications at all, I accepted a prescribed antipsychotic drug to help me sleep. I have found that I sleep a little more when I take this, yet each day I am so very tired and doing (what seems to me) to be far too little.

TOXAPREVENT ‘Tim Animation’ – “Animation about the toxins, heavy metals and histamine that affect your digestive tract and skin.”

I have met with a nutritional therapist who has suggested that my troubles may be largely due to excess toxins. If this is so, then I need a way to get these toxins out of my body (and especially out of my brain). Can this be done?

Perhaps the best hope is with a product called ToxaPrevent(R). This film explains about toxins in the body and how ToxaPrevent may do exactly what I need it to do.

The instructions I have are to take both the powder (for detoxing from upper digestive system) and the capsule(s) (for detoxing from lower digestive system) 30 minutes before each meal.

I have just taken first dose of each, so now to cook, eat and see how I feel later.

Bipolar is Not a Separate Condition #notjustbipolar

Studying bipolar for 16 years led me to the realization that bipolar overlaps with other forms of emotional distress as in this diagram from our 2012 bipolar textbook:


Many psychiatric diagnoses have many similar symptoms

They also have similar causes

To tackle a disorder effectively we need a good idea of the true causes.

Causes can be divided up using these ‘five keys to well-being’ (developed from the work of Dr Liz Miller), with each cause being associated with deficiency or troubles in one or more of these key areas:

  • Surroundings
  • Health (including food, exercise and measurable, clearly defined illnesses)
  • Autonomy (including achieving what you need to do)
  • Relationships
  • Education

Causes of emotional distress match up with the causes of many other chronic modern disorders.

bipolar diagnosis overlaps other diagnoses

What are the common causes behind all these troubles associated with modern living?

Which common causes can I help people eliminate from their lives?

One common cause is simply;

What we put in our mouths

Recovery depends on being prepared to change what we eat and drink, whether we smoke and being able to question those who encourage us to take any form of drug.

When we can improve the ‘what, when and how’ of what we ingest (and may or may not digest), then healthy activities become easier, we sleep better and we can think more clearly.

Clearer thinking allows us to learn more, such that we can deal with other causes of disorder in our lives.
