      Cannabis and psychedelic use! Both of these have helped me immensely. Psychedelics vastly have improved my mental health and outlook on life, keeping me grounded; same for cannabis, which also helps my chronic pain and diabetes issues. I recommend these both for anyone who it is safe (and ideally legal) for!

      Sound baths for ADHD. I have severe ADHD and During the sound baths I’ve done I have had the most clarity and relief from my brain than any other medication or therapy.

        @Soskae what is a sound bath and how can I get one? How long does the clarity last for?

      Apple cider vinegar, cannabis, honey, ginger, going to the chiropractor, taking walks

      apple cider vinegar, cinnamon and honey, and cannabis are lifesavers tbh

      I don't use it anymore but 5 HTP taken daily literally helped me with depression for a few years. I'm on prescribed medication now but 5 HTP definitely helped.

      I recently started taking ashwaganda root supplements during bad episodes and it's helped calm me down/shut my brain off for a little while. It's all natural! It may not work for everyone though but in my experience it's helped a little with my emotional imbalance

      Candles and essential oils. Smells help me so much

    • WhiteFlamingo

      I swear by regular exercise, fresh air, and unplugged time. No, they're not cures, but they are the difference between me feeling capable of action and feeling like nothing is worth the struggle. The exercise doesn't have to be an hour of lifting weights at the gym. I do ten minutes of the same yoga routine every morning in my living room. Anything that you enjoy or tolerate and gets the blood flowing. This also helps with my tics.

      • murdermittens

        537d

        @WhiteFlamingo I miss my yoga so much. It kills me lol. I can't do it until I heal from my many surgeries. I'm so glad it helps you. 💕

      Butterbur for migraines and Vitamin B2! Also, essential oils can be used for SO many different things! There are combinations for most illnesses that can help (but make sure you rub it behind your ear lobes and the bottom of your feet, in addition to whatever area you are having issues with)

      I use medical marijuana for my chronic pain. It is the only thing that I have ever found to deactivate the nerve signals that caused my pain. Narcotics do not work on my nerve pain, and they are very addictive.

      5-HTP supplement did wonders for me before i was prescribed medicine for depression. Highly recommend it for people even just having a severely intense depressive episode. Ashwaganda supplements also helped me sleep a lot (i can’t take melatonin)

      Here’s a list of things I utilize for different things! For Digestion issues: Antiacid tablets, the generic OTC kind. Chamomile, Lavender and Earl Grey Tea. Chicken Broth as well (Also works for decongestant, I rest my face over the bowl while eating and it works like a charm), Culturelle / Probiotics For Vitamin Intake: Complete Equate Multivitamins As for alternative medicines, I have considered CBT usage as it is legal for consumption in my state, but do advise to ask your therapists first—Some recommend it, some don’t. Mine didn’t due to my addiction history. My roommate does Hypnotherapy, and they say it works really well to calm the body. I do Chiropractic stuff for my Bilateral back pain (lower), but I one of these days am going to do Cupping or Acupuncture as well.

      • Freddi

        549d

        @Freddi Other things I was able to remember that I also utilize… Holistic Bowl therapy (I do not remember the exact term) & Crystal routines. I am practicing, so I utilize Tarot and other holistic (Including aromatherapy) to encourage self-care and healing. Having a structured religious routine helps me out too.

      aromatherapy. not that it would work for physical ailments or anything but when I’m having a panic attack, smelling comforting things like lavender, bergamot, and cardamom calm me down. maybe it’s the deep breaths or maybe it’s some ancient magic but i know for sure that it chills me out

    • CaptainHolmes

      647d

      Massage for pain and tension, peppermint tea and magnesium for headaches, turmeric for inflammation, sleepytime tea for relaxation. Golden milk is a yummy way to take turmeric. You warm milk or cocunut milk and add turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and honey.

      Marijuana is great for a lot of things less of an impact on kidneys and such. Also willow bark tea for pain (basically aspirin so if you can't take aspirin don't consume willow bark) mint oil for tooth pain sooo amazing for wisdom teeth.

      672d

      There is so many I swear by that I don't even know where to start tbh. ✋🙌 1st cbd. It's helps assist me with my spiraling thoughts! It honestly took me a whole week to even get the courage to try it and am I glad I did.❤️✋ I fell in love with how much it helped. 2nd is my dogs. I have 4 and they help me get out and talk to people I normally wouldn't. I definitely recommend it for people that don't know how to start up a conversation lol💕💕 3rd is yoga and meditation. Even just meditating for a few breathes a day helps tremendously. People think you need to do 10 mins or an hr when really all you need to do is a few breathes. Let me know if this helps

      • Dustmann

        672d

        @yogachailove I've been thinking of starting a yoga practice. I learned meditation, chakras, and yogic philosophy from yoga books. It's about time I got my butt on the yoga mat. I have a strong interest in Jnana yoga and Bhakti yoga, but any exercise would be a good start.

      Medical Marijuana has definitely been a godsend for me. I used to not believe in the benefits of it. Grew up in a cop family. My husband uses to help his after effects from his stroke. My pain has lessened and my flare ups only are bad when there is a combination of tiredness, stress, and food issues. I don't think I could go without it. I use gummies instead of smoking.

      Cbd, not just like edibles but like using soaps and lotions with it. As long as your cbd has no thc you don’t get ‘high’ and you should pass drug tests. If it’s legal for you to use go for it! I personally like edibles (it’s just safer than smoking and you still get the benefits). I don’t agree with daily use (even tho let’s be honest sometimes we feel like we need that 😅) cbd has helped me with pain, depression, anxiety, and more. I didn’t realize how many muscles I tense up until cbd helped me loosen them.

          @StrugglinMama just be aware of Kratom & it’s ability to become addicting. It attaches to the same receptors as opiates/opioids, & thus can be abused. This also means that the more you take, the more tolerance you build, you have to take more, & so forth. I have heard good things about what it can do for people— pain, addiction, etc. Just be sure to do your diligent research, as with anything :)

      I wouldn't say it's alt med. But diet is very important. Look at what your disease does. Not symptoms but if it releases anything. Like my mast cell releases a lot of things in masses. I've noticed I feel a lot better after I introduced pineapple and dark chocolate because they have natural inhibitors. (I do take medication. A lot. But they only do so much.) Foods can also help your meds work better. But ask your doctor. I know many people can't eat things like grapefruit with their medication. So be careful.

    • PrettyHate

      921d

      I don't if it worked, it wouldn't be alt medicine, it would just be called medicine. Evidence based only for me. #Science

      • AngelVII

        723d

        @PrettyHate sometimes there just isnt enough motivation to do studies. Who does studies to determine the efficacy of different medicines? Largely, pharmaceutical companies. Now if Im a pharma company, what am I going to do if I discover that dandelion tea has promising anti inflammatory properties? Make a pill from it that I can sell and never tell people where I got that property in my pill from. Every pharmaceutical drug is made and derived from plants, minerals, animals, and other things found in the natural world. Alt medicine is about finding the plants/minerals/etc that pharmaceutical medications are derived from and using them in their unprocessed state. Its like eating whole foods instead of processed foods. The pill is more pure and therefore, often more effective because of its processing, but the natural stuff still has value, especially when you are unable to afford the pills, but you can go to a field down the street and pick a bunch of dandelions. I would NEVER advocate a person use alt medicine in place of medicine that is backed by peer review and well conducted scientific study. Ever. Science first. BUT As a person with pretty severe chronic pain, I can speak confidently that many "alt medicines" DO have value. Marijuana- good for pain, insomnia, nausea, appetite stimulation, stress, and a myriad of other stuff. Best jack of all trades medicine on Earth. This is the hill I die on. Hot epsom salt bath- good for its anti inflammatory and muscle relaxing properties. Ginger root- the number 1 prescribed anti nausea in recorded history. Also, I can't remember for sure, fact check me, but I *think* has anti inflammatory properties as well. People have been using ginger as medicine forever. Verified treatments from qualified medical professionals will always take priority for me too. But please don't completely dismiss the medicines found in their natural and unprocessed forms. Sometimes they're the only medicines people have access to because they can be found or grown in your own backyard. Pills are expensive.

        • Starlightie

          647d

          @CreativC This is quite literally impossible. Delta 8 IS weed. Marijuana contains 10 levels of THC known as "deltas". The level you typically find in medical grade is Delta 9, which is what the marijuana laws restrict. Delta 8 THC is just low enough to be legal but high enough to feel almost indistinguishable from Delta 9 and up. The claim you're making that you get med interactions from Delta 8 isn't even arguably false, it is 100% false. Delta 8 is simply a different strength level of THC. It's definitely not for everyone, but don't spread misinformation just because you don't like how it makes you feel.

        • AngelVII

          723d

          @CreativC weed isn't legal everywhere. The Delta 8 pens are more accessible and a safer option legally for many people. Additionally there just aren't any studies backing up your claim. A small number of THC pens were linked, years ago, to popcorn lung issues. That was caused by very specific ingredients that have since been banned. No such studies for the Delta 8 pens have been conducted to my knowledge. Im a mother and my husband has a government contract job. Being in possession of marijuana is too high risk for our family despite having a perscription for it where I lived before. But the Delta 8 pen I can purchase totally legally from the convenience store down the street and it provides very similar relief with none of the risk of legal ramifications. I agree with you that marijuana in its natural form has no known side effects and much higher efficacy, but its simply not an option for everyone. Please don't join the smear campaign against Delta 8 without really understanding it. Its the only alternative for some of us and has brought a significant deal of relief to my pain over the last couple years. I can continue functioning on my bad PCOS/adenomyosis flair up days because of the pain relief Delta 8 has given me.

        @AlwaysInPain82 I have been looking into this, how do you use it? How has it helped? Where do you get it from a reputable source?

      I have gotten the most relief from Fibro with CBD oil and an all natural product call Fibro-Response by Source Naturals. No pharmaceutical has given me more relief.

      Medical MJ for pain. For period cramps/health (because I have endometriosis: a blend of raspberry leaf, dandelion root, chamomile, lavender, ginger, turmeric tea. 🍵 We totally underestimate the power of plants I also just started chiropractic care Pelvic floor physical therapy also changed my life. Most women have stress on their pelvic floor.

        @Mae my Dr just rx low dose naltrexone, haven't started yet cuz my pharmacy doesn't compound. But it's good to know it's working for you

        • EDSdancer

          545d

          @PibblesandTea Belmar pharmacy in Denver compounds LDN if you’re looking for a place to get it. My specialist prescribed mine there because it’s the cheapest for my insurance, then they just ship it to me 👍

      • KitKat1450

        729d

        @Mae I tried LDN and felt horrible. I wasn’t in a place to where I could feel that bad so I stopped. I’ve thought about trying again now that I have more control over my schedule. How long did it take you either to get over the initial symptoms if you had any and/or to feel improvement from LDN?

      Acupuncture helped a lot with my pain. I was very skeptical of basically every kind of medicine which isn’t mainstream or western, but it turned out to be a life saver

      Surprisingly, I discovered the best alternative medicine for my migraine in this app! Someone here suggested to rub an ice cube on the temporal forehead during migraine, and it really works!

        • luteallady

          697d

          @DanyGirl it doesn't hurt. It's just a little prick. The needles are so small. The relief is worth it. You'll feel it instantly.
