You need to find out if you are suffering with “Tolerance Withdrawal” and if that is the real reason for your weird symptoms!
Let’s be honest with each other, and in this letter I will reveal my own personal horror story of my benzodiazepine addiction.
Because I have suffered too, I know how miserable, desperate and alone you feel right now.
I know how feeling hooked on a drug you can’t stop – desperately needing it just to cope with your life – can make a person feel like life is not worth living.
Yet, the worst thing is… it seems like no one knows what you are going through!
I AM HERE TO HELP. I have been where you probably are right now.
You may be experiencing any number of ever worsening symptoms such as:
- extreme anxiety and rising fear
- feelings of anger and betrayal
- constantly thinking morbid thoughts
- worsening insomnia and bad nightmares
- aching sore tight muscles and muscle spasms
- loss of appetite
- nonstop flu like symptoms
- abdominal pain and cramps
- heart palpitations
- and not wanting to leave your room/home (Acrophobia)
- these are just a few of the many symptoms you can experience.
You don’t feel safe in the world anymore…
You may be feeling angry and betrayed by the very people you trusted your health with. You know deep in your heart it could be possible that they are not taking your complaints seriously.
You’re scared and rightfully so; no one seems to understand the pain that you are going through.
They don’t believe you when you say it’s the pills that you are taking – not your doctor, your best friend, your partner – no one!
In fact, you may not even have realized it yourself (the problem is – it’s the pills!) until recently.
Everyday your agony gets worse…
the symptoms get harsher and the living hell goes deeper.
You look for help but it’s so confusing – you don’t know who or what to believe. There is so much conflicting information from so many people and sourcesyou don’t know what’s good for you and what’s not – a lot of it is downright dangerous to your health!
I understand your pain.
I know what it is like to feel totally alone and not in control of your life.
People tell you what they think you should do but they don’t know. You suspect that they think you are crazy. They tell you to take up yoga, meditate, and learn how to relax, because they have no idea what you are really enduring every minute of every day of your life.
But I do, I have been there, addicted to a drug through no fault of my own – just like you.
Have you ever heard the story of Stevie Nicks, lead singer of Fleetwood Mac? In a private interview she tells how she lost years of her life after being incorrectly tapered from the drug Klonopin. It has happened before, it is happening now. It is happening every day to good people like you and me.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
There IS a way out and I’m here to help you.
This letter I am writing to you will show you the right way to taper off safely and in time you can be drug free living a normal life again.
Yet, first let’s talk about where you are right now.
You are probably completely overwhelmed by the conflicting information available on the Internet, what you see on T.V., read in magazines and the medical advice you hear from your doctor.
If you suffer with emotional and anxiety disorders and use benzodiazephine you may be headed for a life long dependency on prescription drugs or if things get worse — a stay in a psychiatric ward.
I want to help you avoid those horrible fates.
Because, when you’re hooked on benzodiazephine — it’s a nightmare.
Not only does your health suffer, but your close relationships with family, friends co-workers do to.
That’s not even counting problems with your employment, and medical claims for health insurance and — the high price of Doctor’s visits and expensive prescription medication plus the time lost from work (and pay) spent going to appointments!
FACT: Complications with drugs and related treatments can lead to life-long dependence, and rising levels of dosages (and being prescribed more hazardous drugs!) which in turn can lead to worsening health problems resulting in — a stroke, seizures and even pre-mature death!
Take a benzodiazephine and you will quickly become dependent on it and your life will revolve around “taking your meds”.
That’s why I am here to help people just like you, do all you can to — avoid that horrible nightmare.
I’ll show you what you need to know to naturally heal, regain the function of your mind and body and naturally restore your health and reduce your dosages and even stop taking benzodiazepines.
WARNING: DO NOT REDUCE OR STOP BENZODIAZEPINES UNLESS you are working with your Doctor. Let me reveal the HORRIBLE TRUTH YOU MUST KNOW TO HEAL YOURSELF.
Self-education is vital with the right withdrawal procedure — SO YOU DON’T HARM YOURSELF.
Many doctors and psychiatrists (even the one I went to once or twice and left) don’t possess the proper education about correct benzodiazepine withdrawal procedures. In fact this also applies to most alternative health care practitioners and drug withdrawal facilities.
Did you know?
Drug withdrawal facilities generally use the same methods as for heroin or other illicit drug withdrawal – these methods are completely inappropriatefor benzodiazepine withdrawal!
NEVER adjust your medication without appropriate medical advice from a “Benzo-Wise” Doctor.
Benzo-Wise Doctors can be hard to find close to your area, but they are out there.
And I can help you find one.
But as a quick alternative you can take the Ashton Manual with you and ask for their help. (There’s more about this in the downloadable book below.)
PLEASE BE ABSOLUTELY SURE you find THE RIGHT DOCTOR BECAUSE YOUR DOCTOR CAN BE YOUR BEST RESOURCE.
Educate yourself on the dangers of the inappropriate reduction of a benzodiazepine drug.
Proper knowledge of and the safest way to “taper off” benzodiazepine drugs is what this letter is all about. Don’t assume, like many medical practitioners do, that once the drug is out of your system that all is well.
Many Practitioners fail to understand that the body can take a long time to adjust and heal from the damage that has been inflicted by these drugs.
You already know you want to lower your dependence on your medication and return to a more natural life and you want to do it SAFELY without using any drugs, or resorting to any type of “cold turkey withdrawal therapy” or an extended stay in a Withdrawal Center.
That’s what you really want, isn’t it?
But you probably didn’t know (or your doctor didn’t tell you) when you got your prescription that…
Your Dependence on Tranquilizer Medications Like Benzodiazepines
WOULD BE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!
After many years of taking Mogadon, a sleeping pill belonging to the Benzodiazepine class of drugs, I began to experience a wide range of strange and uncomfortable sensations. I had no idea what was wrong with me, nor did anyone else. Certainly not the doctors I sought help from.
My symptoms were a sign that I had reached tolerance ceiling.
This means that the drug that I was taking was no longer having its desired effect and my body craved more of it.
Once I reached that point, my symptoms rapidly escalated in number and severity.
Didn’t Your Medical Doctor Tell You About All of This?
The fact remains. People who take benzodiazepines don’t get this critical information!
You may be wondering why that is true.
It’s because of the way medical doctors and psychiatrists are trained in medical school there are things they don’t want you to know. (In some cases the medical treatments they are taught may be due to pressure from the profit-motivated medical and pharmaceutical industries which fund medical schools and research studies!)
But you already know that, don’t you?
Fortunately for you, today, you found me.
If you feel like you are sick and tired of enduring ever worsening problems with your anxiety and insomnia…and you’ve done everything your doctor prescribed to medicate to alleviate your problems – and that’s not working…then please listen closely to what I have to say.
