Something is very wrong with our food. Most know this to a degree, but not quite as well as we all should. Still a mystery to me as to what exactly it
is, but I have my theories and workarounds.
I was once diagnosed schizophrenic and have recovered greatly through various traditional and non-orthodox means. I have spent upwards of $3000
dollars in the past 5 years trying to combat side effects from medication with alternative means, which I have accomplished quite well, and to fight
symptoms themselves. Anyways, here is what I have realized for my body and mind.
Most of the problems associated with my illness were caused by a malfunctioning liver. Without realizing it at the time, my liver was quite swollen. A
vegetarian diet for 8 months allowed my liver to digest the fatty accumulation that had somehow happened. I am not and was not fat, my liver was
overloaded with something I know that for sure, what exactly - who knows, but I remarked one day 3 or so months into vegetarian diet, when i pulled my
head back as far as I could and looked down my chest, and noticed my liver area was skinnier, and realized previously it was swollen. I didn't lose
any body weight when I went vegetarian at all, in fact probably was bloated.
Anyways, so I did that and slowly my mental state was returning to the more normal relaxed person I was before I ever lost it. Not anxious around
others unless I wanted to be, and just in general, more in control of myself.
The next successful thing I did to help my mental state was take an essential amino acid blend. Not protein powder, not the non essential aminos, the
9 (8 or 9 - its debatable) essentials, and not mega-doses either. This coupled with a low protein diet gave my body the best form of protein
available. Free form protein building blocks, already broken down and stripped of all the non-essential amino acids that my body could produce on its
own from the essentials, as needed and in proportion to my body's own self regulating mechanisms.
I've tried it all, b3 mega-doses, isolated non-essential aminos (gaba taurine etc etc), herbs (skull cap, combinations), vitamins and minerals, and
whatever. Like I said i spent more than $3000 dollars on these things searching for the magic bullet and never really found it. The key is to treat
the body as a whole, not to treat the brain. The brain is usually fine if you can walk straight and move you extremities and whatnot. If the liver is
in good shape then your digestion will be fine, elimination will work, repair will work, sleep will be better, etc etc.
So to sum it up, go on a low protein diet to allow your body to make use of what it already has and really needs and not to flood it, after a few
months or so of your body will have adapted to a different diet, take the essential aminos that will provide the basic nutrition. Do that for a few
months, wait till you start craving meat again, and go back on. Rotate your diet. Less is more. Take away before you add. Good luck
