Friend with Fibromyalgia and Glaucoma
Hey Ted! I have been thoroughly rummaging through the Earth Clinic website and have come across many great remedies. I definitely would like to learn from this site, as I intend to learn more about herbal healing right now so I can possibly start a practice once I graduate from college. I have this wonderful friend who has severe physical problems and I feel horrible that such a terrific person should have to endure such agony. She has been on Paxil for 11 years, I believe from the research on the website that she may have been exposed to a chronic flouride poisoning. She has since been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Glaucoma. She has extreme depression and would like to get off of the Paxil, but she has horrible withdrawal pain and even higher levels of depression when she does not take the drug. Although, she is pushing through this and slowly lowering her doses while hoping to get off the drug completely this summer. She also has been experiencing a chronic third eye pain for the past few weeks and nothing seems to lessen the pain that is felt. The Doctor has recently decided that the pressure in her left eye is far too high and she will need to get surgery on December 9th for it. I remember her telling me that she could not eat a grapefruit because the acidity was too high, and that her doctor told her that acidity was bad for herfibromyalgia. So I was wondering about the ACV mixture...I would like to create a tonic for her as soon as possible! I have come up withan apple cider vinegar/borax/baking soda/cayenne pepper mixture I think would help her most as well as taking a 5HTP supplement for her depression. Would you recommend this/think this would be effective for her case? And if so, what amounts would I use if I were to make a large 2 liter tonic?
