I truly love your story/life Jane. Thank you so much for sharing. You give so many people hope. XO
Like you, I believe most mental illness is NOT a life sentence and can be cured naturally.
My son's been bipolar since he was 7-years-old. He had chronic ear infections and was on Antibiotics and addicted to Sugar from the time he was a baby until he got tubes in his ears the doctors prescribed him pink 'bubblegum flavored' Antibiotics and gave him lollypops. He's 21 now and in trouble with gangs and drugs.
After reading Dr. Towbridge's 30-year-old book "The Yeast Syndrome" I realized candida (they called a yeast infection back then) causes mental illness, specifically schizophrenia and bipolar, and a ton of other nasty stuff, even death.
I'm a psychiatric technician at a state hospital where I attempt to care for mentally ill men who are also felons. All I can do is show them I care in little ways while medicating them through the conventional "sick care system" which usually means forced over medication. It's heartbreaking because I can see they're all very sick with candida and could possibly be cured by diet alone but they're addicted to sugar, cigarettes and drugs.
My peers think I'm wacko when I mention candida, diet and curing mental illness without drugs. It's going to take many more years of educating doctors and clinicians before we see a change. As we all know, the Sugar industry stopped the scientific data on candida 30 years ago when it was becoming big news and they moved daylight savings time a week before Halloween to sell more candy! And you all know the power of "big pharma" trying to ban natural cures. How do we fight all that money and power?
We peacefully overcome it through grassroots efforts like these. The internet could be our saving grace if we keep telling the truth lovingly, people will hear.
