As Americans, we automatically turn to antidepressant medications for our stress, depression, and anxiety. But these drugs have many side effects ranging from nervousness, drowsiness, blurred vision, dizziness, sexual problems, and even thoughts of suicide.
I was one of those who turned to drugs for help. I started taking antidepressants to help my postpartum depression, but over time my postpartum kept getting worse and depression became part of my normal life. I lived for several years in this endless world of depression from stress and anxiety. I got to the point where I couldn’t leave my house, my health suffered, my children suffered, my life was slowly deteriorating and I was dying inside. I would try to take the kids to activities only to find that I couldn’t do it. I would make them stop these activities just because I can’t cope. Then I would feel more depressed because I made them stop the fun stuff. It was an endless cycle.
We know that living in this cycle of depression, anxiety, and stress is detrimental to our bodies. We know that it is not good to remain in this state, but what do we do when “modern medicine” fails? He was doing everything he could do. I was taking what the doctor gave me. I was constantly praying for help and relief, but it didn’t seem like I was getting any answers. Finally, my answer came. My best friend called me and told me about a new natural product she was using. Due to the chemical makeup of the product, it actually works to balance all of your body’s systems. The first thing I used was “Joy”. It totally changed my life. A month after the day I started using Joy, I felt like my eyes had opened and woke up from a very long sleep. I started to feel like a completely new person. I started using several of these products on myself, my husband, and my children. I wanted to see what it would all do. I started the children with “Peace and calm.” It was the most wonderful thing for them. My oldest daughter was so stressed that she was having trouble with OCD trying to control some area of her life as our home life was so out of control. I started it with Frankincense, Clary Sage and Stress Away and it started to calm down dramatically. He was able to function better and also started making friends. As I felt better and my body was more balanced, I was able to start allowing the children to do activities again. I was able to have friends again. It has been two and a half years since I started using my emotional balancer. I don’t miss a day using it. I make sure we all have what we need, always. I would not change it for anything.
