Federal government to fund horse therapy for injured veterans

Post by Ex Member on Tue 19 May 2015, 22:33

I am now down to 215lb i have my mango or pomegranite green tea 3 times a day with saffron added to it. saffron is a natural anti deppressant i dont even miss coffee anymore you dont have to diet just give up the salt sugar and processed foods i eat steak,pork cutlets,chicken, fish(basa) stir frys and fresh veggies etc etc. i cant believe how fast the weight came off 5 weeks 5lbs a week it took 4 weeks for the salt to come out of my system it comes out on your lips and in your mouth and thats all you can taste. natural non harmful spices adds enough flavour to any dish. this is so easy to do and becomes a habit you will enjoy sticking to after a week. i am no longer taking any med not even blood pressure, monitor every day better than when i was on meds. feeling happy, energetic, feeling alive again i didnt give up anything but processed poison!!!

Thanks gang...stumbled upon this thread...good advice Trooper. Fedora. Not yet. I too am eating better and losing weight. Trying to decrease my pain by decreasing my size. I remember being 240 and full of muscles...not 240 and full of taters! Small steps leading to big changes.
Slightly slimmer Sap

I would agree that changing your eating habits an changing your lifestyle does have it's rewards.

Being medically impaired makes it hard to sometimes make these changes as the answer usually always is in taking prescribed medication , prescribed by doctors to help with your condition - or conditions.

I think there are many ways for individuals who are medically impaired to better themselves , one way is to want the change , it's easy to say that I'm disabled an I will just take my meds an hope they will help an leave it at that.
Wanting the change - or trying to change - taking the time to research, an educate yourself on what changes may help is all part of it.
Knowing the difference between what meds are a must for your conditions , an what meds may just be put aside for a need basis only is key.
Doctors have an obligation to prescribe meds for conditions , patients have an obligation to know exactly what meds there putting in there system.
This can be difficult at times as we are normal in the way that we just want to either get better - or feel better from what was prescribed , an the mindset that they are doctors an who am I to question a doctor.
Well it's simple you are the one taking the meds , therefore the last call has to come from you.
That said , there are certain meds that for certain conditions that will leave you with no choice but to take them , I call these life or death - or close to death meds that if questioned by the patient could result in death - or close to death.
There are other meds that if not taken could result in further harm to the patient if not taken.
So it's really a question of how much the patient is determined to search the whole Idea of making the change in taken control of what you are putting into your body.
When I hear someone posting that they put the booze away, eating better , an now feeling better , it truly makes me proud of that person , it really does , they are proving to themselves that it can be done , an they like the rewards there getting from it.
They are fully in control of themselves.
One member posted that he has stopped taking a certain pain med because he was getting severe side effects from it , he now only takes it when absolutely necessary , again taking control of there own body.

It's not for everyone , an there are no absolutes here , if one chooses not to change for whatever reason they may have , that may just be the best thing for them , they are the only ones that really knows there own body , don't look at it as a pressure tactic used to convince individuals to change , look at it simply as some sharing there own results for the purpose of trying to help others , again not to change others , but to share stories that just might help others who may already have been looking into change.

Yes teen and bigrex I also love reading. Most times I could not tell you what I read 1 page before, but it's all good..lol. I have a little lap dog that is 8, and she helps me focus, and stay grounded when I need it. She is not a therapy trained dog, but to me she is awesome.

Good suggestion about reading, teen. I use puzzle's and Sudoku to achieve the same result. They help get me out of my own head, and allow me to focus on something, other than my pain.

Don't know if this is of value. I don't have PTSD but I do have chronic depression due to long term illness. Been analyzed and the shrink suggested reading. So got me a kobo and started reading and it is helping.

Because the weather is nice I get that natural Vitamin D and read. Read before bed. Read during the day when I start to get, let's call it 'flustered'.

Rags and pinger, great discussion on to take or not to take drugs. I have ptsd and have decided not to take the prescribed pills. But I will admit this route is not easy at times. I try to eat well, walk, and do melantonin at night. But I have been on the fence sometimes. These are mostly when my moods are up and down like waves. I know drugs would even it out but at what cost? I have friends that are on several drugs, and one seems to interact with the other, and I wonder if they are better off. I have been prescribed a couple , got them, but then waited, I am conflicted. Any thoughts/ideas on others who decided to do the natural route. I just know this head spacing crap ptsd sucks,,

I agree with the clean eating and fitness very much Rags. Can't punch my clock back but geez... wish I could still do that 1+1/2 mile in 10+ minutes working on the 9 minute mark.

About that medication. I know nothing of it. JMO but I am always leary of NEW medications until the verdict is out... 5+ years unless your very desperate. Dire straits.
I am neither a guinea pig or a pin cushion. My choice. pinger.
