Urbanangie here. Now I realize that I haven’t posted anything in several years. Let me explain how that happened.
First my health deteriorated to the point where I spent more time in the hospital than i spent at home. I couldn’t figure out why I kept getting so sick. I took the medicine the doctors said I needed, I followed all of the instructions the doctors gave me, and I still got worse. It was quite the mystery. Finally I started investigating the medicines and diagnoses online and was quite surprised to find that the medications I was prescribed were also prescribed for at a minimum of at least three or four illnesses that I didn’t have.
Wow. Can you believe that? I wasn’t taking a medication that would fix me I was taking medication that masked the symptoms. I continued to investigate and became horrified to find that not only did my medication mask my symptom but it actually could cause even worse symptoms.
My solution…I STOPPED taking the medication. I began to investigate herbal and natural treatment solutions for my medical issues. I found that I could treat my symptoms with herbal teas and essential oils. Ok my road to recovery has been rough but at least I feel like I am taking control of my health.
So yes my friends in the prepping community I had fallen for the hype of big pharmacological companies but I am done with that now. I try to control my health with natural and homeopathic practices. Suffice it to say that not only does my doctor not approve my choice but neither does my family. Both my doctor and my family think I have a death wish because I no longer want to pump my body full on dangerous drugs that I really don’t know what they are for, what they are made of , and what they do. I assure you I don’t have a death wish I just want to be free and in control.
So I haven’t been posting while I was investigating and changing how I handle health care issues. I still see my doctor and I do take some prescription medications that I understand and that I am certain do what they are supposed to do but most of my symptoms are treatable with herbal teas and essential oils.
I have been prepping while I was away however my beloved family threw out most of my stored water while I was in the hospital and used a lot of my stored food supplies rather than spend their money on groceries. So I feel as if I had to start over. (Sigh…Life is hard when the people you love don’t understand you…Sigh)
I am not going to say my health is perfect or even good. I will give my health a fair. So I am not going to promise to blog every day. I may not be able to. I will instead promise that I will blog at least three times a week and I hope that someone out will read it. I don’t have illusions that lots of people will be reading what I write I just hope to reach out and help someone someday.
God Bless and Good Luck until next time
