And was she helped in the hospital? I hope she is returned to good health.

Prednisone, in high enough doses, can also trigger cortisone psychosis, which can take years to recover from because it causes a complete break from reality. This happened to my elderly mother who was diagnosed with giant cell arteritis, an inflammation of the arteries leading to the brain. It causes horrific migraines, but no one thought to flood her body with alkaline water, or try medical marijuana, ingested as high grade oil, to combat the symptoms and reverse the inflammation. Instead, her 55 mg per day dosage of Predinisone led to her becoming compley bedridden, her body swollen, unable to even toilet herself, until finally she gave in to hallucinations and falls, resulting in bone fractures. Traditional medicine has failed us compley.
What’s the deal? Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Lovan and Luvox belong to a class of drugs which alter the mechanism that balances levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain.

This has been shown to alter mood and behavior.

Many of my friends and I are using essential oils instead of pharmaceuticals and getting back to Biblical healing methods. I’m off of most of my prescriptions and haven’t had a sick visit to the doctor in the two years I’ve been using essential oils. Lots of people laugh and call it snake oil, but those of us who witness the benefits are laughing at the lines at the pharmacy. I even use them on my dog.
