Emotional health is the unseen substance supporting our good sense, and providing that something “extra” when our good sense is spent. We’ve all had those days when the only good choice left is to laugh at the mess you’ve made of today while keeping faith for a better tomorrow. What happens when the inner strength is gone, the soul inside crumbles under the slightest provocation life has offered. Each day becomes a series of trials to be failed in sad succession until blessed sleep frees one from reality for a few precious hours.
Are there any real answers for rebuilding our spent or broken emotional health?
Yes, I do believe there are and the hordes of antidepressants proscribed by the medical practitioners are not it. The health of the mind and body rise and fall together. One cannot be any healthier physically then they are mentally or rise mentally above the physical health of the body. This is not to say someone with a birth defect or debilitating injury cannot be emotionally healthy. The health of the body and mind are all about clearing toxins from the internal systems. The more toxic the system the poorer the health of the body, the less emotional strength to deal with life’s little frustrations.
Emotional health is realized when a healthy mind/body connection is achieved and maintained. The mind supports the glands in their production of the system’s balancing hormones, which support a since of emotional wellbeing as well as physical health. Toxins prevent the proper absorption of the healthy food we eat, even the highest quality extracts will be of little use if the liver is too backed up to properly utilize the nutrition provided.
An effective natural approach for emotional health issues is to make sure the elimination organs are open and functioning well, (bowel Cleansing) then embrace a good system wide detox while nourishing the mind with herbal and natural supports. It is also important to deal with the emotional junk that caused the mental overload in the first place. No one can untangle all the emotional issues choking the life out of their life all alone. Find someone to talk to, an experienced guide to keep you pointed in the right direction.
Herbal Supports: One of the most important is Kelp. The master herb for the thyroid is also food for the entire glandular system, energy in a bottle. Energy, motivation, and desire are three important elements of any great day. Kelp is helpful. Superfood; when needing an emotional or physical pick-me-up four tablespoons of Superfood in a glass of juice and I’m firing on all cylinders again. There is nothing like a powerful hit of Nutrition to clear the cobwebs, while sending usable nutrients to every cell of the body. The real grabber is its all real, no caffeine, nothing to make you feel better when you’re actually not.
My Depression Testimony by Dara Dietz
Depression for me was a deep sense of hopelessness, an unshakeable sadness that filled my waking hours. Life had been robbed of joy by the heartless actions of those who were my heart. Only a handful of close friends were aware that for two years, without warning, tears of hopelessness would silently fill my eyes, spill over and running down my face. Even so anxiety never filled my heart with fear; faith in my Heavenly Father was as firm as ever, I knew my life and times were in His care.
Before sharing the herbal program I used it needs to be understood how important the services of a qualified Christian Psychologist are. During this difficult period I was fortunate to find my own wonderful counselor. I determined from the beginning to be as honest as possible, to listen and learn about myself through the eyes of this person.
Just as we have physical blockage that must be cleared before we can heal our bodies, so it is with emotional blockage. Believing a lie will not only prevent you from embracing the truth but the lie will block the free flow of emotionally vitality in the life. Learning to Love me and forgive myself was the first step in my emotional healing.
Please believe me when I say, “There is no truth that cannot be faced squarely when you face it with a trusted Counselor or friend and the Heavenly Father on your side.”
Once faced and understood, you can own life’s most painful moments. They no longer own you. Learn from them and grow through them, this is how emotional giants are born. They rise up from the wreckage of life’s most painful moments, decide to face their responsibilities and by the grace of God ascend above it all.
The Herbal Supports I used
There are many effective herbal remedies that will aid in clearing the toxins from the mind enabling emotional healing to happen. Below are the herbals I used.
These herbs should be taken six (6) days a week:
- 1 oz Each Day Echinacea*
- 2 Olive Leaf Capsules 3 times a day (East Park: d-lenolate caps)
- 1 tsp St John’s Wort 3 times a day. (or Antidepressant Formula 1tablespoon 3 x a day)
*Echinacea: Boosts the immune system enabling it to process the die-off created by the other two cleansing herbs being used in this program.
