Do you remember when you could do anything, go anywhere without experiencing debilitating anxiety attacks? Panic attacks are one of the most horrible things anyone can go through. I should know. I had my first panic attack when I was 15 years old. I literally thought I was going to die. I felt weak, shaky, and sweaty with a dry, cotton mouth and terrifying heart palpitations.
From the time I was a teenager to the time I was in my late twenties, I was on a prescription medication called Klonopin for my anxiety attacks. Benzodiazepines like this are very difficult to get off of because of the terrible withdrawal symptoms. They’re just as bad if not worse than the panic attacks they’re used to treat.
Since I have gastrointestinal problems, I don’t use conventional antibiotics and won’t unless it means my life. Chronic overuse of antibiotics can lead to chronic yeast infections, leaky gut syndrome, and antibiotic resistance. According to research, overuse of antibiotics can destroy your immune system.
The Benefits of Natural Antibiotics
I used to get sick all the time. Every cold, flu, and virus would knock me for a loop for weeks. Sometimes, I’d get a sinus infection in January and wouldn’t get over it until May only to get one again a month later. It got to the point where my immune system was so poor, I didn’t even know what healthy felt like.
Back in 2007, I was told I had skin cancer. Now, I’m almost as pale as a vampire so I don’t ever go tanning. As a matter of fact, I hardly ever go out in the sun. I will burn, badly within 5 minutes. Because of this, I couldn’t understand how I got skin cancer on my left calf of all places. I had the surgery. There were no complications and everything was fine. I was lucky because melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer you can get.
I started doing some thinking and some research. If my complete and utter lack of tanning didn’t cause my melanoma then what did? Could it be that I’d given in to being called “Casper” and “vampire” my entire life by slathering on copious amounts of chemical-laden self-tanner along with enough synthetic sunscreen to block my pores? Maybe. Until I started reading about the dangerous effects of chemical cosmetics, including self-tanners and sunblock, I thought I was doing the best for my skin. It turns out, I was very wrong.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve noticed an increase in searches and questions about intestinal parasites. The blog I wrote a couple of years ago about the subject seems to be a bit too vague. So I’m writing my personal account of how I cured my intestinal parasites in 2010 with a product called Paragone from ReNew Life.
Back in January of 2010, I suddenly began feeling very sick to my stomach and getting diarrhea almost every day. At first I thought I may have been somehow getting gluten in my diet but that didn’t make sense. I always ate the exact same things. I scoured my fridge and cabinets and threw out anything suspect just to be safe but things went from bad to worse.
