I’ve written in another blog about giving mental health patients drugs over the long term and how that process doesn’t do anything to correct the problem and likely does more damage to their physical body in the process (Mental Health Tips to Limit Drugs). Mitigating a few symptoms seems to be the justification which would be fine if there wasn’t a better way. One of my guides had something profound to say about just that.
This particular message comes from Evee, a very old entity of 480 souls who were all master teachers in previous lifetimes. They told me,
“We specialize in the highest forms of healing work on the emotional level such as depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, manic conditions, paranoia and severe addictions. Although not all individuals are willing and not all are ready to be helped, those who are can find complete healing. Answers do exist for everything and we are quite naïve to believe God would have created this masterpiece of a universe with limitless potential without such answers existing.
“Medicines are for the convenience of others. These drugs are administered to (1) make physicians feel like they are helping – at least symptomatically, (2) for family so they need only witness muted symptoms from loved ones and (3) for temporary functionality because people are too fearful to stop their lives long enough to really heal. Drugs have some benefit for those reasons but for little else.”
It’s no secret that conventional medicine has not made dramatic inroads in the field of mental illness. They have not helped people completely recover from some of these serious conditions; they have just medicated them. Those individuals who live with mental illness or those who love people who live with such conditions can attest to the frustration associated with the chronic nature of these situations. People are frustrated because somewhere deep inside, they know there must be a better way – and there is. However, personal exploration is needed by patients and their loved ones to facilitate total healing.
It is possible to significantly reduce one’s dependency on psychiatric medications by exploring the emotional or physical root causes that might exist. The term mind-body-spirit medicine (a holistic approach) is not limited to healing physical illness – it also applies to our spiritual, mental and emotional lives. Consider exercise, diet, nutritional imbalances, toxicity, allergies/intollerances and other physical conditions as well as buried emotions to be part of the cause. What might be helpful are natural modalities such as energy medicine; acupuncture; water therapy; neuro-feed-back; nature and animal therapy; expressive art therapy; meditation & prayer; guided imagery; yoga and so many others. The answers lie generally to the things to which one is drawn.
Don’t be afraid to explore the Internet for alternative options to treat mental health issues – and remember – answers do exist if one can keep focused on the desired outcome. When that occurs, the patient (or patient’s caregiver) will be led to the perfect answers. Since total healing will be cumulative and progressive, don’t look for a quick-fix. But, please do look. If you stay positive and realize answers do exist with continual exploration, there will be hope.
