I first heard about Anthony William, the Medical Medium, through a Hay House podcast.
I found what he had to say fascinating. His insights were unlike anything I’d ever heard before, particularly in relation to the power of fruits and vegetables to heal the body and mind.
I already had a strong suspicion that food was medicine, but familial beliefs held me back from fully embracing the concept.
Like most people, I was taught to rely on modern medicine for the answers to all my health woes.
Some of my family members believe that food has no impact on our health and that what happens to us is a byproduct of genetics and luck alone.
But there was no denying my family doctor’s inability to provide solutions for my debilitating depression and anxiety symptoms.
I was growing increasingly frustrated with how often I was being offered prescriptions that only served to cover up the problem, not seek the cause of it. Yet still, I was a little skeptical about what the medical medium had to say.
The idea of abandoning my familial beliefs scared me, as did ditching my reliance on food as a form of comfort.
If I had a bad day, a pizza was my salvation. The thought of giving that up for healthier options didn’t sit well with me.
So I didn’t purchase any of the medical medium books at the time. I just hummed and hawed about it, and continued to struggle with my mental health.
I had a lot of other health issues, too.
On top of severe depression and anxiety symptoms, I had been hospitalized with mystery back and chest pain, was rarely able to sleep through the night, and suffered from chronic shoulder and hip pain.
There were a lot of heavy beliefs within me about what it took to get healthy that didn’t help matters.
Mind over matter! Meditate and affirm it away! Make another doctor’s appointment: maybe this time you’ll get some answers.
Nothing worked. Not the affirmations, or the pills I was prescribed. And my doctor couldn’t provide solutions.
I just kept struggling with severe anxiety and depression.
Time for a hard-earned wellness insight: We all have our own growth schedule. Oftentimes, we have to revisit an idea or theory a few times over before we actually get on board and put it into action.
I got sick of feeling sick and tired and decided to start following the Medical Medium on Instagram.
I was incredibly inspired by how generous he was in sharing information. He would (and still does) offer condensed chapters from his books.
He also shares real-life accounts of people who recovered from medical mysteries with the help of his eating and supplement suggestions. 😳
Fast forward a short time later, when a random email from a wellness writer I follow arrived in my inbox. In it, she shared her ambitions to read all the medical medium books, which gave me the push I needed to finally read one myself.
I added Medical Medium – Thyroid Healing, to my shopping cart, and it changed my life.
Since following the medical medium’s suggested eating and supplement plan my anxiety and depression levels have lowered substantially.
It’s been life altering for me. I 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.
I was medicated for depression and anxiety for over 20 years and none of the pills I was prescribed worked.
At one time I was on 3 different medications, which numbed me so badly that I chose to use drugs and alcohol in order to feel some semblance of emotion.
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 have finally found something that alleviates my anxiety and depression symptoms is an understatement.
I am now medication free and am thrilled about the following improvements to my health:
- I have less brain fog, which means I’ve stopped putting things in weird places and forgetting about them.
- No more acid reflux!
- You know when wads of hair come out in the shower and you think, That can’t be good!? I only see a few strands now.
- No more prescriptions to fill!
- My nails are super strong, the tips are naturally french white, and they don’t peel anymore.
- No more toe fungus.
- I experience way less panic attack type symptoms and social anxiety (I work with a psychologist on this as well.)
- I sleep better.
- I have more energy.
- I’m happier.
- I feel motivated about my life and my career!
- 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.
The physical side effects are great, but what I’m most excited about is the impact the Medical Medium way has had on my mental health.
In conjunction with therapy and a commitment to being kind to myself, following the medical medium eating plan has drastically improved my state of mind.
I highly recommend you read the medical medium books if you experience depression or anxiety symptoms.
There’s nothing to lose and plenty to gain by reading one with an open mind.
Thyroid Healing, Life Changing Foods, and Medical Medium are great.
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, no worries, 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 depression and anxiety symptoms and the foods we eat.
The longer we live in denial over the impact food has on our mental health, the longer we suffer.
Please, take the time to read these books. What you learn will empower, motivate, and inspire you.
