Autoimmune issues manifest in many ways affecting both mind and body http://wp.me/p5nnb-arm


Recommended Posts

Autoimmune issues manifest in many ways affecting both mind and body. Celiac disease and gluten intolerance are autoimmune issues…there are many others. My own experience with autoimmune disease suggests that psych drugs exacerbate these problems…(hence the phenomena of some of the very serious protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal issues which deeply affect the whole body and mind rendering many completely disabled)

The below article discusses a study in which auto-immunity is considered among those with the label of schizophrenia. Autoimmune disorders are likely implicated at least in part in a lot of cases of all psychiatric diagnosis as far as I can tell.

It’s my opinion, based on lived experience and helping 1000s of folks come off psych drugs, that many people can heal from these issues at any time. Healing may be complex and people may need a lot of support but it’s possible. At this point though we’re largely on our own while supporting one another because the mental health system is largely ignorant about such aspects of well-being.

Remember we are holistic beings and EVERYTHING MATTERS! 

I wrote the above in response to seeing this article from New Scientist see: Autoimmune attack behind some cases of schizophrenia

Hi Gia,

Thank you for the educational and informative articles and links that you provide ..

I love reading what ever material you share here, and on your sites.

I wish you continous wellness and healing Gia ..


I am tapering Lorazepam, and my daily dose is 1.125 mgs.

I followed a long hold for 5 months, ( Nov-March 2019) hoping to find some stability, 

but it did not work. So I resumed my taper and hold pattern.
For the last 3 years, I have been using a daily microtaper, cutting .001mgs per day, with holds as needed.
Symptoms are head pressure, labored breathing, palpitations, abrupt surges of dizziness, this being my worst symptom for now, internal tremors, my latest nemesis, unsteadiness, anxiety, plus many other symptoms that cycle in, and cycle out consistently. Not a day passes, without grief :(

I take no other meds.

January 2013 - 15 day quick taper off 10 mgs of Lexapro, and 25 mgs of Sertraline,

at a detox clinic.
