Hi Everyone, I study ways to stay healthy. Along the way I studied Neurological symptoms, knowing what I already know about vitamins and minerals I felt that could be a connection with well rounded knowledge. What I found was most if not all of those symptoms had a common deficiency. Something kept sounding wrong though. Then I looked into Acidic Crystals and how too much acid in the body prevents mineral absorption. Not only does it prevent absorption properly it forms acidic crystals that cause`s inflamation and pain. It is my belief these crystals are also associated with Morgellon`s Disease. Fibers mixed with GMO vegatable dna. The fibers could be partly acidic crystals. I also believe these crystals can form anywhere in the body causing Gout, Fibromialgia, Arthritis, ALS and on and on. Why not Shingles also ? It seems to be the real reason minerals are not absorbed, result it opens the door to pain and who knows what else. My own personal experience is Cherries and Milk ( do not drink skim milk ) resolved a real problem. I`ve seen cherry concentrate get rid of Gout in 5 days also. Look into this deeply because I am confident many can benefit with it. It may be just that simple. Garlic can get rid of many infections if that occurs also.
Hello, i'm a 22 year old male. i've been medicating myself with Marijuana for over a year now. In my early consumption phase, i started up with 1 to 2 Joints everyday and ended up being continuously High for a Whole Weeks (5 to 8 Joints per day). I started feeling the secondary effects as anxiety and depression kicked in. The more i thought i should stop, the more i wanted to consume. It then came to the point where i went to support groups and lately to a Psychiatrist. I moved out to my brothers place. After a week i was prescribed Citalopram 20 mg. However i did not stop smoking weed. It's been 6 Days that i am taking Citalopram and i smoked weed once since then. It feels like the effect of Citalopram is augmented by weed and vise versa. I'm afraid i would finish by doing harm to myself, pursuing this path, but it seems it's what my body and mind are craving for. I would like to have contact with people who are or were in my situation.
