“Anne, you mentioned that you did work with a naturopath and were using magnesium to ameliorate your binge eating. Can you tell me more about that?”
Reader, I am working with a homeopath, not a naturopath—big difference. I am taking mercurous acetate, not magnesium, and it is not for binge eating, it is for over-all healing. In the process of recovery, I have achieved a level of emotional stability that I have not had in decades. Homeopathy is doing good things that no psych med ever did.
However—and this is a big HOWEVER—do not go out and buy mercurous acetate and expect it to work for you. This is NOT a remedy that is designed to cure all psych ills; it is a remedy that was chosen by the homeopath specifically to heal MY ills. Homeopathic remedies are a very precise fit for a specific individual. Mercurous acetate is not a cure for depression; it is a cure for Annie.
My worst problem is the damage that pharmaceuticals have done to my immune system. You may have a perfectly healthy immune system but your agonies may be coming from some entirely different source. Depression can come from psychosocial, biomechanical, biochemical or environmental sources. Other emotional distress can have other roots.
Go see a good homeopathic practitioner. Let him/her do what they are trained to do and figure out what remedy is right for you. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND homeopathy. It is healing without harm. But it is not a do-it-yourself project. Anne
