You CAN Get Better

Don’t let doctors make you think you are doomed. You’re not.

Once I got it in my head that I would get off of the Neurontin to help my brain recover from the nerve injury, I realized (through the help of my TCM practitioners) that the only way for my body to correctly heal itself was to detox from all the medications I was on – MS Contin, Neurontin, Oxycodone, Klonopin, among other things. After two months of horrible detoxing (the movies do not lie – the sweating, puking, 3 AM in the bath with restless leg..terrible), I went into a beautiful remission.  It was glorious!! Suddenly my body felt normal.  After years of agonizing pain and poor motor function in my ankles, i could walk!  The remission lasted just a few months but I learned something valuable.  The issue is my brain chemistry and I can treat that better with food, needles and meditation than any drug.  In fact, I believe the drugs only make it harder for the body.

You absolutely CAN get better.  You have the power.  It’s not easy but it’s totally worth it.  Not a day goes by that I don’t have a huge grin on my face as I go run errands, take a walk, do things I could not do for so long. You are not doomed.  Help yourself to figure out what your body needs to get well.

  1. I have to say, a lot of progress and some frustration but overall, i can’t complain because i am SO much better. It’s just something i work at but it’s no longer the thing that’s running my life. Pain levels are very easily controlled now. I have more issues with swelling that i am trying to overcome. Those do not seem to arrive at the same time like they used to. What a wacky thing. 🙂 If I were to give any advice (because sometimes i forget this and overthink it – IV vitamin c- not my friend), meditate and do things that calm your body and mind. That’s what always makes the difference for me. Sometimes i mess myself up because i forget that and i try things that make me flare up. Please keep me posted on how you’re doing!

    • Glad to hear you’ve made progress!!! At least not going backwards, right? :). Can u tell me more about Vitamin C?
      How long were u on meds before u stopped? Thanks again!!

      I am learning the importance of finding ways to relax & stay at peace. Trying to figure it all out. Starting a new Devotional/Bible Study to help transform my mind. Essential oils – learning about those too!

      Keep up the great work & again, thanks for taking the time to write this blog.

      Praying for complete recovery for both of us!

  2. Awesome! I do feel like the relaxation/prayer/mind/body facet of this is HUGE. I was on the meds for a few years before i stopped but wish i stopped sooner for sure. But i think i had to do some healing before my pain levels were at a point that i could do that. The iv vitamin C…i would NOT do that again. In my mind at the time, the idea would be that i have inflammation and that’s an anti inflammatory so great. But it was entirely too strong for my body. Now i am happier trying to turn off the inflammation at the source and doing things on the back end to put it out that are not so intense. The dr said other RSD patients could withstand it but I just think it’s too much (for me). I think it’s over stimulating to the body which is, in fact, the opposite of what i am trying to do for myself. The Meyers Cocktail and the glutathione were more helpful to me. But as a cheaper way to get the glutathione, i try to each avocado every day and i try to get a lot of vitamin k in my foods.
    From what i have read about “typical” RSD patients, you are well ahead of the curve of people who break out of the pain med route. I have no doubt you will get on top of this and knock it into permanent remission.

    • How do u eat avacodo every day? I will work on getting more vit K in me.

      Shared your website on Facebook RSD group.

      Thanks for tip/info on vit c IV. I never heard of that before.

      Quinoa – I saw somewhere you posted on this. I make this often. It’s great in soups. If you want it as a side, you can boil it with a broth to give it flavor. I will use vegetable cube broths & just add double strength.

      Great site! Thanks again for the encouragement !! Keep fighting 🙂

  3. Great idea about the quinoa! Thanks. And i know…i was sick of avocado for a while. My brain fog is much less with them in my regular diet that i ended up going back to them. Much cheaper than IV glutathione. And at least i know what’s for breakfast every morning. No wondering about that. 🙂 The iv vitamins…i think i will likely stick with food sources for vitamins from now on. Very sweet of you to pass the site on. And thanks for reading my blog. I just figured only my family was reading it out of a sense of obligation 🙂 Keep kicking butt!!
