Patient discussion about Re

Q. Re: They are treating him like an experiment I have to disagree with Lixuri on this topic. Holistic healing can work wonders and I also am a spiritual person, However with an illness such as bipolar disorder it is very dangerous to make statements such as a spouces love and presance can or will heal anothers emotional state. All of the love and affection in the world would not have made any difference at all with my partners illness. I am a very loving, patient and doting partner and all of my love and all of my presance could not stabilize her mood in any way. Encouraging people to take a holistic route with bipolar disorder can have devistating effects. I would say to combine the two, conventional medication and holistic health. Eating fresh foods free of chemicals etc, drinking water, becoming one with your inner self, aligning your shakras, meditation etc are all really good ways to stay healthy and active and moving and clensing but they are no substitute when dealing with the real illness this is...

A. I am so glad that the methods you have chosen are working for you, and I agree that those methods are helpful. Not only for people suffering from bipolar disorder but for humanity as a whole. We all hold on to our pasts and clensing is vital in maintaining a healthy happy life. In all respects. I do respect what you have done for yourself. You have to buy into that lifestyle in order to make it work for you. you seem to believe in reincarnation and karma enough to find the strength to stop yourself from hurting yourself and others. I guess my fear would be that if someone did not have that strong belief it would not be enough. Thank you for your insites, I would actually enjoy talking to you more about your methods and beliefs. Thank you also for your contributions

Q. How do you prevent an asthmatic attack from re-occurring? I am very anxious about having another asthmatic attack, because this doesn’t happen very often. How can I make sure I avoid having it?

A. reflexology. that's what helps me. have you tried alternative medicine before? as the asthma is only an outcome of something deeper- medication are usually more a treatment then a prevention. try reflexology treatment-it can help prevent another attack- maybe even make it never come back.
