Drug Cocktail
Drug Cocktail

Ok, so a drug “cocktail” these days, can come in pairs…One drug to patch someone up after maybe an addiction to something “street”…Then its paired opposite to counter any side effects of the first drug…Drug pairing is newer thinking in the field of psychiatry…It tries to account for Iatrogenic effect-which means, doctor or drug induced problems…Unfortunately, the drug that you take to counteract any side effects of the first drug can carry its own signature side effects too…Which makes the cocktail into a rather complex drink…

Here are some classical drug pairs(opposites)…With where they stand on the Grove Body Part Chart & the Grove Brain Part Chart…

You might see one person take all 5 of the drugs mentioned below…This is a drug cocktail…

Xylac(treats schizophrenia):Aluminum (street drug this patches is marijuana)…Alternative medicines that are similar to Xylac in action:Maca Powder, Cacao Powder(Cocoa), Cinnamon Powder(these three when mixed together a teaspoon each in a mug of boiled water make a delicious morning drink to start your every day off right-have a Mug full every day)…In pill form you can get L-Carnitine which is stronger(but also stronger means be more careful)…

Trazadone:Titanium(this corrects the Xylac if it causes sleeplessness)…Alternatives to Trazadone:Include Mint leafs in boiled water to make a tea-steep for a while or simmer Mint leafs or just eat them straight, Chamomile tea, Frankincense water(put Frankincense tears into a pitcher of water & drink the next day), Boswellia capsules(just another name for Frankincense)…

 

Zoplicone(treats panic & anxiety):Phosphorus(the street drug this patches is caffeine)…Alternative to Zoplicone:GABA powder-gamma butyric acid (GABA) is just so wonderful for treating panic & anxiety-a teaspoon is like 2,000 mg so don’t take too much at one time-when you take GABA it causes all your acidity to rise up briefly & you may feel a “tingling” sensation briefly & then the CALM begins…But for that brief moment as it meets the acidity you may feel the panic emotion increase, just for a few seconds, & then it subsides quickly as it soothes & removes the problem…Because of this sensation, go easy on the GABA dosing wise…better small amounts spread out, than a large amount at once-really!!!

Effexor:Copper(if the Zoplicone is causing “hypnotic” effects like being in a trance, the Effexor wakes you up)…Alternative to Effexor…Licorice Root-St. Francis makes licorice root tincture, Triple Lead tea company makes Licorice root tea…or just buy the herb, simmer & drink…You can even just swallow bits of the herb raw with any liquid…Yerba mate also…Matcha tea also…Green tea also…Gingko Biloba also…Copper supplements also…Black tea & coffee also(though can be harsh on the stomach)…

 

Lithium(mainly treats manic phase of bipolar):Lead(the street drug Lithium deals with is cigarettes)Alternative to Lithium…Beta Carotene-fabulous-you can get a red Algae sourced beta Carotene 25,000 mg supplement at Nutrition House in the Eaton centre in Toronto lower level where the food court is ask for Fernando who seems to know just so much about nutrition & supplements & the language of all that…But you cannot take beta carotene ANd Lithium together-one or the other or you will be doubling up…Beta carotene is lovely for quelling manic type emotions…Summertime crazy feelings…

Note:If the habit ie: smoking cigarettes has not been stopped, then possibly a drug pair opposite will not be given…The reasoning is that the smoking will be sufficient to handle the side effects of the Lithium…Ironic though since quitting smoking is often the goal of getting addiction help…But if you take Lithium, it may indeed be very difficult to quit nicotine…Without it you may feel SAD & dopey, heavy boned & lethargic…A Naturopathic replacement for cigarettes might be Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, plenty of sunshine, Ginger root(slice bits of the ginger root & simmer in water to make tea)…

Other notes:

Depression lives in a cold, wet, Liver…

On our Chart, it is a Hydrogen excess…

Treat it with an Oxygen like apricot kernels…3 a day long term…(also stop drinking so much… a cold, wet Liver wants to be dry & warm, so flooding it with liquids isn’t helping…)

Here are our charts…The brain chart connects to the body part chart…Just find the appropriate body part…

While you detox from the Xylac, eat eggs…Just to replace the drug with something similar that is natural so you don’t go into withdrawal…Risks of going off Xylac & not replacing it with something natural instead:schizophrenia

The Zoplicone is a hypnotic which increases roadside accidents…Wean slowly…Eat tons of yogurt (Greek high fat low sugar) if you start weaning from that…Risks of going off Zoplicone without replacing with something natural:panic anxiety

Lithium is another to wean very very slowly off…Large amounts of carrot juice, organic carrots & potatoes will help while doing that…Potato salad…Risks of going off Lithium without replacing with something natural:manic phase bipolar

Effexor can be replaced with the herb called St. John’s Wort…They are similar…You could start St. John’s Wort while cutting back on Effexor…Go slow…A pill splitter costs $1.00 & can save your life…( cut pills in half or quarters to wean slow)…Amazing Grass Energy Greens powder(for example) has tons of plant caffeines(coppers) inside that you can take instead of St. John’s Wort…Risks of going off Effexor without replacing with something natural:lack of energy laziness out of work syndrome

Ok last one is Trazadone…Its a Titanium on my chart…You can replace it with eating Mint leafs- a lot daily…Or a supplement called boswellia serrata( frankincense in a capsule form)…You can just eat Hulled Hemp seeds for the Titanium…Risks of going off Trazadone without replacing with something natural:Can’t sleep, high cholesterol

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...

    Side effects of the drugs have not really been discussed…

    Xylac, for instance can cause “boringness”…Nothing to say, no new thoughts…
