I think CD is a game changer for ASD recovery and takes
care of so many co-morbid isseus. Even older kids/adults recover. CD costs very little so anyone can afford it.
It has worked for Lyme recovery too.
There are more than 93 cases of recovery which were in the presentation at Autism One 2013 in Chicago and a much larger number of people who have made very dramatic and rapid progress.
I had to >n<;; Steel myself to reach in there and try the touchy-feely so I could work it out.
Been suspecting pinwormies.
Had a cat at age 7, had massive snotty colds all that year. Was a farmcat.
200g organic cocoa butter
50g coconut oil
20 drops garlic essential oil
40 drops 'digestive trouble' essential oil blend
1/8 tsp vit C per suppository (ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate blend with a nigglybit of Alpha-liopic acid)
Made about 30 small suppositories out of that mix, was using them for only 2 days. Saw these buggeries on.. oh.. tuesday, half of the way through the day? I had used about 6 of the 30 suppositories over the weekend. It made me weird and wobbly.
BTW, virgin olive oil (the piquant type) was SO GOOD for falling asleep last night (usually can't sleep past 3-5 AM T^T; )
I've been otherwise only using the essential oils topically (in a carrier oil like coconut or olive), 1-3 drops of stuff like eucalyptus, lavender, frankincense, myrrh, a cleansing blend..
When I found out how good pomagranate smells, I started exploring the aromatherapy stuff closer.
I did the suppositories 'cuz they should help hit anything in the liver pretty fast. I have felt pings and pangs around the gallbladder and pancreas.. And the back where the pancreas-nerves attach.
Cypress essential oil 1 drops 2x a day over the pancreas, and doaked a Q-tip in it yesterday to try and use in the nasal passage where I've several times been annoyed by a wigglysquiggly feeling..
Other factors that can be effecting anti-pinworm success- been 2 months, mostly raw veg. Using thyroid extract (RAW brand with ginseng) instead of doc's synthroid/eltroxin, and valerian & tiny amounts of st. John's wort to replace antidepressant. Friend from naturehackerproducts (Oh c'mon peeps, just add a dot-com! and there you go, it's teh internets~) pointed out to use a tribulus-terrestris/diatomaceous earth/activated charcoal mix too, but I'm not really good right now at being regular with dosaging.. Never met anyone before with that sort of background knowledge on biochemistry mixed with herbal and nutritional knowledge though.
There seems to be nothing that we aren't able to criticize or should I say be annoyed by. CZ, a microcosm of our world's human society.
And after the first course comes life, kind of like a compost heap, and when we successfully wade thru it, circumnavigating the pits and the parts, the awaiting desert is sweeter than any previous taste but not cloying, it is perfectly tempered, unflappable love.
Hey will you shut that baby up, his laughter is driving me crazy.
Cheers, Vai, and a warm desert wind.
Yeah, my first reaction was to get annoyed, but honestly, it's only a systemic person that hasn't gotten the gift from others that it takes to appreciate a different shade of personality.
That is, we all usually get spat out torn up by society.
You know, I'm loving the civic? You've been a good advisor.
This may be long but i hope people take time to read it. i want to start out by saying that my family is of native American decent and i know that we have always attracted spirits to us. until recently i have never been lucky enough to see one. I've had an invisible guest in every single home I've lived in. leading me to believe that its one that follows ME. this Im ok with because Im used to it.
I've also experienced other things which i can deal with like smelling cologn of a deceased person I've never met or someone who Im missing.
there is also the curse of feeling emotions of others so strongly that its hard to distinguish if they are my emotions or not. i don't go to the mall at Xmas because i get aggravated and feel anxious. overwhelmed. i was diagnosed as bi polar or as having adjustment disorder etc but meds do nothing for me but make me tired or irritable. people say Im too emotional or mood swings. when someone in the room cries out in anger or frustration i become angered. watching sad movies and i don't mix. i literally feel like my heart is breaking and i cry in sobs. my family laughs at this of course lol! i know things about people and their feelings that i Prolly shouldn't know and can sense danger by being near certain people. i always say that person makes me ickie. and thats EXACTLY the feeling i get.
now my 2nd problem. for years now especially recently i somehow just KNOW things. not visions or promotions. on occasion Im able to tell someone your mom is gonna call and the cell rings of course its who i said. i always get the corner of the eye look when that happens. i seem to ALWAYS just KNOW when Im being lied to or what someone will do or say. but when confronted with what i just KNOW its always denied. i know when someone far away is upset with me. i have dreams of people i haven't talked to in a while and the next day they call. all of my romantic relationships have pretty much told me i was crazy. i always just knew when they were doing wrong. am i paranoid? or gifted
Tortured, human beings are born with instincts that are soon extinguished as they age. Empathy - the ability to "feel" the emotions of others and imagine those feelings is not a "bad thing," though it can really get out of control if we're particularly vulnerable due to childhood traumas, etc.
You've been properly diagnosed BiPolar? And, you've been prescribed medication that is closely monitored? Sometimes, this is helpful, but medications are not the sole answer to any chemical imbalance. I would strongly urge you to engage in counseling therapy with a PSYCHOLOGIST and not a psychiatrist. Psychiatry approaches the chemical and medical facets of the human brain while psychology addresses the emotional and behavioral facets of human behavior. There are techniques and methods that can help you to manage mood swings, cycling, and hyper-emotional states, but it requires dedication, resolve, and practice.
Nobody would ever "choose" to be BiPolar, Tortured. It's a very painful disorder and not something that anyone "deserves." Having typed that, you are the sole keeper of your own emotional and physical health. In addition to prescribed medication, counseling should be a requirement to help you learn how to manage your own emotional health.
my bi polar diagnosis was retracked by another health care provider. He did not feel that i was bi polar in any sense of the word. i have also had doctors say borderline personality, low frustration tolerance, adjustment disorder. I have no idea what is wrong with me...medications do not work for me. I am currently on depression meds and anxiety meds. which help me from not sleeping all the time. i know im depressed right now. i have so much going on in my life.
I just want to stop feeling either sad or angry all the time. i cant seem to find happy and motivated in my list of emotions!
thank you for responding to my post i appreciate your input.
Just because many human behaviours and emotional talents are a challenge to understand does not warrant a psychologically-challenged label!
You sound extremely sensitive tortured1 - and indeed must feel at times a torture. You are not harming others with your perceptions - indeed, at times you are possibly a huge help with having such razor sharp intuition and inner knowing.
Because the majority of people have not experienced this, they seek to find labels for those considered 'emotionally abnormal'; as already suggested - these innate parts of self tend to become diluted into adulthood, swamped-out by the distractions of career/toxins/responsibilities/worries..the cerebral focus is solely tuned-in to problem-solving, mundane issues etc....and the ability to utilise all areas of consciousness are limited.
I worked with adults with learning difficulties - diagnosed with all kinds of medical 'conditions' like downs syndrome etc - and sure, despite being intellectually challenged, they were extremely healthy emotionally and could 'tune-in' to people/groups with ease. I also experienced with them the death of a close member of the group and they accepted death as part of life, without any undue grief. While 'normal people' can mourn for months, cry extensively, become ill etc due to death - yet this behaviour is indicative of emotional immaturity/insecurity.
So regard yourself with the respect you deserve and look after your sensitivity. It IS a gift, and as i said - it doesn't harm anyone - it seems to only harm yourself if you consider it a bad thing...it sounds as if the suggestion of it being 'unhealthy' is CREATING unhealthy emotional feelings - which you should definately let go of.
I have known a few empaths like yourself, always such beautiful, sensitive souls who are easily bruised by this label-dominating-extrovertive society.
Please take care if you are resorting to antidepressants medications - they alter brain chemistry, synapse pathways, are not kind on the liver and ultimately do not allow you to be you. There are other ways to find peace. Accepting who you are is the main one. Treating your body well with nutritious foods and quality water is another.
Wean off all medication slowly - it's important never to just stop those kinds of meds.
Tortured, I would like to see you change your CZ ID because you are placing a negative connotation on yourself. I agree with many of the points in the response, above. Human "sensitivity" and instincts are there for "A Reason." That your own sensitivity has survived childhood reconditioning is, indeed, a "gift" of sorts. There is nothing "wrong" with being A Sensitive! It can be a challenge, but it's not an indication that you're "crazy."
The emotional issues that you're experiencing that you feel are a challenge can be addressed through proper counseling therapy with the "right" professional - that would be someone that doesn't necessarily support over-medicating and takes a more personal and holistic approach.
If we understand our core issues, we can learn many priceless techniques and methods of managing those issues without mind-altering chemicals. As an example, I was suffering from extreme anxiety, and I was prescribed a relatively "routine" anti-anxiety medication that was to be taken 3X's daily, or "as needed." Initially, I snapped these things in half and took 1/2 twice daily. After a short time, I began weaning myself off of this chemical because I was learning coping techniques in sessions that helped me to relieve the anxiety. I no longer take these medications because I learned how to manage triggers and reactions.
I'm rather in agreement with "labels" because I've seen NUMREOUS people rely upon a diagnosis to "excuse" their behaviors - in fact, it allowed for them to actually make some very "bad" choices and decisions, and then blame the "condition" that they had been diagnosed with. This is a result of psychiatry, which is the study of brain chemistry. I would urge you to consider counseling sessions with a psychologist that addresses human behavior and emotions to learn the core of your anger, etc. These things can be safely managed, Tortured.
Most important for you to understand is that not one of us on this planet is without some sort of issue. Each one of us carries our own imperfections and foibles, and this doesn't make us "bad" people! It's how we manage these foibles is what determines whether or not we mean harm to ourselves or others. You sound genuinely interested and committed to sorting yourself out, and that is NOT a symptom of someone who doesn't care or means harm. So, in essence, your sensitivity and creativity can be a beautiful thing if you take some steps to sort out the emotional core issues.
I'm new to this site, but that's what I thought to when I read it. I thought that because I am one as well and have been since as far back as I can remember. I can remember back when I was very young, like 4 or 5, I ALWAYS knew right away when I met someone, if their intentions were good or bad - same with their character and integrity. And while I was a shy child who would never discuss that, well mainly because I didn't know HOW to at that young age, I ALWAYS thought EVERYBODY was like that - I thought THAT was normal until I got a little older, like closer to 20 and I started realizing, NOT TOO MANY people I knew WERE like me, as in an empath. It's very taxing and draining on one's spirit though to be an empath if you don't learn to control the flow, and you don't clear that energy from your person. I take a Sea Salt bath EVERY NIGHT to clear what's left over from others. If I DON'T get a Sea Salt bath - I can literally FEEL ALL of ALOT of different vibrations and they're usually negative, i'd know it right away from whoever I'd been around that day, whether I knew them or not. I'm one of those people THAT a complete stranger will come up to and just start telling me their problems. It USE to upset me because what would happen would be I would make them feel better with my words and my spirit, BUT THEN, I had to hold on to THEIR stuff til I got home or somewhere to clear it. I use to think it wasn't fair, but now that I know about the clearing of it and everything else that goes with that gift, it's not really an issue anymore, UNLESS I come across someone really ill intentioned, and I have, SEVERAL TIMES. Those who seem to possess a very strong power within themselves only they're not good people, so they use that so called strong will to manipulate and destroy others. When I'm in the presence of someone who is a REALLY REALLY BAD person, and yea, I do mean bad - because they're out there everywhere - but when I do come across one, my WHOLE BODY begins to tremble from the inside out, and it's quite noticeable. I've learned to take THAT as a sign to get away from them, because it's always been THAT KIND of energy that will bring an empath to their knees.Anyway, sorry so long, I just find it interesting to meet others who are gifted with empathy as I don't usually get the pleasure of doing that.
I know this is an old thread and the op may no longer be here, but I am replying anyway.
Tortured, you sound normal to me, except the empathy is a little too heightened. I'd recommend visualizing an invisible shield around you before you go out to be among people until you learn to take a step back in your mind.
