I initially heard about Anthony William, the Medical Medium, through a podcast. I was super fascinated by what he had to say at the time, but I wasn’t ready to go there yet, and by go there, I mean dig into one of his books.
At the time I had a lot of health issues going on, the most notable and debilitating of which were severe depression and anxiety. But still, I didn’t feel ready to investigate the Medical Medium way just yet.
Insight: We all have our own growth schedule, and oftentimes, we have to revisit an idea or theory a few times over before we actually get on board and put it into action.
So instead of buying one of his books, I decided to start following him on Instagram. I was inspired by how generous he was in sharing information. He would and still does offer condensed chapters from his books to his followers.
He also shares real-life accounts of Insta-folks who recovered from true medical mysteries with the help of his eating and supplement suggestions.
But still, I didn’t buy the books, until the day I received an email from one of my favorite spiritual seekers and writers, Danielle Laporte.
She mentioned she had put “read all the medical medium books” on her 2017 to-do list. And I thought, Well, if DL is that committed to the Medical Medium way, I’ve got to investigate this more. (She really is one of my faves.)
Since following the medical medium’s suggested eating and supplementation plan my anxiety and depression levels have lowered substantially.
This is life altering for me because I’ve suffered from debilitating anxiety and depression since the age of 12.
I’m talking sporadic episodes of comatose on the couch depression, and can’t-leave-the-house-because-I’m-terrified anxiety, on a regular basis.
I was medicated for over 20 years, and nothing my doctors gave me helped.
In fact, the drugs my doctors did give me – and I was on a lot of them – numbed me so badly that I often chose to use drugs and alcohol in order to actually feel something, even just to laugh.
While I also used drugs and alcohol because of the PTSD I suffered from (FYI: medical medium has a lot to offer about healing from PTSD, too) it doesn’t change the fact that the medications I was prescribed to stop feeling anxious and depressed were also a catalyst for me wanting to get wasted.
I was totally void of feeling while medicated, and being the uber creative that I am, I was desperate to feel something. This is where taking pills to mask symptoms fails miserably. In my case, pills weren’t an anxiety and depression solution, they added to the problem.
To say I’m grateful to finally have found something that actually helps my anxiety and depression symptoms is an understatement.
When I stick to the medical medium way of eating and living, I experience way less anxiety and depression symptoms. And there are a few more things to hive-five over, too:
- Less brain fog, which means I’ve stopped putting things in weird places (Always an interesting recovery process. Still wondering where that necklace is though…)
- No more acid reflux symptoms.
- You know when you’re in the shower and wads of hair come out and you think, That can’t be good? I only see a few strands now.
- My nails are super strong, the tips are naturally french white, and they don’t peel anymore. And they peeled for as long as I can remember.
- No more toe fungus.
- I experience way less panic type symptoms and social anxiety.
- I sleep better.
- I have more energy.
- I’m happier.
- I’m better at my job.
- I’m kinder to myself and others.
- I’ve gone from a size 28 waist to a 26 without feeling starved or malnourished.
While the physical changes are great, too, the side effect I’m most grateful for after reading the medical medium books is how much my mental health has improved.
In conjunction with therapy and a daily commitment to being kind to myself, my mental health is better than it’s ever been.
Which is why I’m going to suggest that if you experience anxiety or depression, or suffer from any type of mood disorder, you read these books.
There’s nothing to lose and plenty to gain in reading one with an open mind. There are three on the market right now, Thyroid Healing, Life Changing Foods, and Medical Medium.
And Liver Rescue was released on October 29th, 2018. It’s living up to the hype! ❤️
If you can’t afford to buy a book right now use the Medical Medium Instagram feed and medicalmedium.com as a knowledge base. You’ll find a ton of information on both to get you started.
As I said, Anthony is very generous in sharing information. 🙏🏻
It’s important that we acknowledge the connection between our mental health and the foods we eat.
Take the time to read these books. What you learn will empower, motivate, inspire you, and most importantly, help you heal your body, mind, and soul.
