DISCLAIMER–WARNING–TAKE NOTE before you get all in a HUFF!
I am not ANTI meds or Docs. Obviously, I have used Docs (UAB EatRight Program), and Meds to keep myself healthy up to this point, and I DO NOT make a MOVE without my Docs keeping an eye on me. I haven’t been in a few months, but I KNOW they keep up with me through my blog so … there you go (… and I am going again next week).
Having said all this … I DO believe that we need to make sure, before we go popping pills, that we have tried everything else beforehand if we are not in a life threatening situation. All my docs have supported this line of treatment. No rushing to medicate. I was, however, scooting right up the scales in my need for massive amounts of medications. Much of that has changed over the last year. Thanks Largely to the fine medical staff at UAB EatRight. They have helped me change my life. I am excited. I wanted to share this with you all.
Had to share the above photo on my Facebook page. I have to take medicine–but honestly–the meds to help with one problem have caused other problems in my body and weakened my health. YUM! My doc and I are working to rid me of my meds. If your docs are pill pushers — you might want a second opinion. I totally believe in taking what YOU MUST HAVE — but no more!
Just a little up date on my meds:
- I used to take 6 diabetes pills, down to one most days and 2 if I eat too many carbs–no one thought I would ever get these down.
- My blood pressure med was cut in half … now, I have to take it every other day NOT to drop too low. Can’t yet drop it all together.
- My edema meds (fluid pills) have been at 2 a day for a LONG time. Now, one if I am not traveling.
My Life and Health are improving daily. As my fitness grows — there is a strong possibility that all I will need is the ONE fluid pill–maybe not even that.
Can you say, WAY TO GET YOUR LIFE BACK??
I feel 20 years younger.
Why do I train? Well … there’s your answer. 😀
Besides I love the way I feel and am starting to look — doesn’t hurt that Mikey likes it! hhehehehe
Well, … I am off to make a chicken salad lunch to take with us to the lake — going Kayaking! YEAH!
Send you some pics later ….S
