Wednesday, the 14th of March, was my last dose of Cymbalta. I am free at last !! 20 days ago, I began to taper off by removing 10 beads a day out of the 60 mg capsule to eliminate as much of the withdrawal symptoms as possible. I have read some horror stories, let me tell you. If you don’t believe me, go to www.cymbaltawithdrawal.com and check it out.
I can truly say that I did it with lots of prayer, whole, natural food and supplements. The one that seemed to help the most with keeping side effects at bay were the Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and lots of fish/krill oil. Oh, believe me, when I tell you I have a ton of supplements that I have been using to get healthy. Although when I first started my journey back in late September, it has continually changed. At first, it was just plain Nature Made vitamins until I started doing research.
I have shrunk from a size 26 to almost a 16 since October, 2011.
Only God could have done what He has done with me. I have learned so much via research and study. God said in Matthew 7:7 to “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
My life has been a roller-coaster of diet programs. I lost 75 lbs on the Sugarbusters diet but it was not a lifestyle change. It was not for my health. I gained back twice that. I tried Weight Watchers back in the day when you ate green beans and tuna. To this day, I am not a fan of green beans and tuna.
I had to find something that worked for my body and something I could live with the rest of my life. It had to be a lifestyle change. Hallmark Man has even joined in since he’s seen such a difference in me and let me tell you, I am seeing a difference in him as well.
Whole, natural, unprocessed food is the way to go. Supplement with a good, whole food, organic vitamin; krill oil; garlic; gingko, magnesium, 7-Keto, Alpha-lipoic-acid, L-Carnitine, L-Lysine, Spirulina, Chlorella (gets rid of toxins!), vitamin D3, Ubiquinol (CoQ10), and a good psyllium husk fiber (organic is best).
Of course, everybody’s body is different but that is what works for me and I am seeing changes all the time. Thank you, Lord!!!
