Please allow me to introduce you to my favorite relative – Aunt Ruby.
Aunt Ruby was a nurse – and I’m convinced that there has never been a better nurse than Aunt Ruby. She was 80+ and together. Then, one day she wasn’t.
When Aunt Ruby came to live at our home,she was wearing a back brace. She barely knew the day of the week. She fell asleep repeatedly throughout the day. She walked with the aid of a rollator and a cane. She wore a lift on one shoe. A mysterious rash covered one leg.
Aunt Ruby could no longer dress herself.
It took us 18 months to get Aunt Ruby back again. One reason it took so long was that we weren’t sure what the problem was.
And, what was the problem? After much trial and error, we finally found out. Aunt Ruby, as good as she was a nurse, took whatever pills, drops, lozenges, creams she felt she needed at the moment. And, when she didn’t need the particular product anymore, she just kept on using it.
Aunt Ruby ruined her health by overmedicating herself with several OTC and prescriptives that never should have been taken beyond their practical use.
And, truth be told, Aunt Ruby’s story is pretty common.
A number of medications are commmon culprits.
Antacid drugs – Heartburn drugs
All of the above listed medications can and will help you if you need them. If you don’t need them, they can change your behavior, alter your personality, give you an itchy rash, make you feel so tired you can’t walk across the room.
However, they should be taken if they are needed.
They can cause many health problems if they are taken with other medications which don’t mix well. Taking several drugs can create interactions: fatigue, depression, confusion, jumpy skin, insomnia.
An interested medical professional should periodically monitor every pill, liquid, salve, you use. If they don’t work, and if they don’t work together, they should be discontinued.
If a product doesn’t work, doubling the dose is not going to help.
Very few drugs should be taken for an extended period of time without periodic blood tests and observation to be sure they are still doing what they need to do without causing problems.
Sometimes, when these drugs are discontinued, these feelings are replaced by mental clarity, and better energy. If you feel better after stopping the medications in question, work with your physician and/or pharmacist to discover the way to your best health.
While this is happening to you, you will feel very different as your body returns to a healthier state.
Regular reflexology and Reiki therapy sessions will keep your body grounded and encourage homeostasis as your body gains its new good health.
And, ideally, regular reflexology or Reiki therapy sessions are a part of your weekly wellness schedule over time to help you maintain your best possible health.
Aunt Ruby’s body underwent many changes while some drugs were discontinued. Other drugs were adjusted so that she received fewer amounts. The homeostasis encouraged by reflexology and Reiki helped her daily life balance itself.
This whole process took months.
I’m definitely not suggesting that all people taking several drugs or even one or two drugs are over medicated. However, a periodic review of your medications can help you learn whether or not you are taking the proper medications in the correct amounts.
This includes your vitamins. I get all my vitamin and mineral preparations from Woodstock Apothecary. I recently reviewed everything I take.
This also includes many herbs and other preparations sold without prescriptions. Any product which has the capacity to improve your life can also wreak havoc with your life if it is not the right time for you to be taking this drug or herb or other medication you are considering.
I hope the information in this blog post will help you.
