This is from your post above.

currently on wellbutrin SR 100 mg, ortho tri cylen (for the past 8-9 years), and lunesta (i am prescribed 3mg, but i usually cut it into quarters, and only take when i am stressed).

in the past year i have been on zoloft 50-100mg, cymbalta 60mg, clonazepam 0.5 mg (occaisional, for anxiety and/or sleep), rozerum. i was diagnosed two years ago with major depressive disorder, but my latest shrink thinks i have a mood disorder.

when i was a teenager, i was always on meds for my acne (one of my dermatologists called it "angry acne"). the only ones i can remember right now are clindamycin, zythromax, and accutane.

It states in the past year you took zoloft, 50 to 100mg.

I never said you were bad, and I am not your enemy.
However, you take alot of meds. Do you think they have no side effects?
Sorry, but I don't "sugar-coat". I call it like I see it.
Check out EMpower plus. Its a natural product that many (with mood disorders) swear by.

Dom, no one is labelling you as bad, just that what you take may not be as good as you hoped.

Medications made in the mainstream carry side effects, even if it's just a possibility of a mild headache or slight drowsiness, a side is a side regardless.

These days the consumer has more choices, no matter what some sections of the media, medical industry and politcal circles try to do.

Evidence and results etc etc, will leak out, via dedicated individuals, personal testimonies, and those people in the three above catagories, that don't play charades with the individual on matters of health.

There are other ways if you want to find them, and other things out there for you to consider.

Mainstream and the alternative have no consistent record. Alternative is now well publicised enough, to know it's practicioners and exponents cannot shine like Gods of creation, and expect everyone to leave Mainstream in the dust, as the human body has been altered that much, by new and everyday things over cenruries, it's micro-evolution, remains a constant challenge to all, be it mainstream or alt.

No one is ever going to call you bad for thinking well of mainstream, as mainstream has success, but ultimately anything in life has success even with downsides. A vast majority of new things in science and technology, deemed highly positive, come with at least one con, for all the pros, because that's life.

You can believe in what you want with medicine, like I choose to be atheist in religious terms, but it doesn't make you a bad person my man, it really doesn't, but in this ever changing world, you sometimes have to realise, that it doesn't necessarily have to be the case, that you sit back, and narrow the scope of vision, hoping for vindication of your actions when you're old.

You can still believe in your mainstream principles even if you choose to look at other ways of doing things. It's not about who's right or wrong on here, or if you're right or wrong about anything, it's about you choosing the path you feel best suited to you, and knowing it's not the definitive route in life, and you can walk a different path, but ultimately, you'll still be walking in the same hypothetical shoes, from cradle to grave, and if you are having to take several meds in your life at your age, then to increase your understanding of what is possible for you, can only serve to benefit, even if you choose to stick to what you feel is best.

Don't take anything others here say the wrong way, but if some people didn't express concerns for a young man with your situation, and physical issues, they wouldn't feel too good, knowing they could say something and didn't.

You can choose to take on board what's said or not, and choose to diversify what you know, even if you end up always believing in what you are doing now, but don't mistake care and concern for personality bashing of any kind, it's not the case, and I've been here long enough now to say, I can vouch for every single member of this board, in regards to their honesty, human gifts, and quality of Heart and personality, and I hope you'll see it too.

We want what's best for you fella, but we'll NEVER force you to think or believe anything you don't want to. You're old enough to sensibly and rationally make those choices now, but we'll never stop as a community, looking out for one of our own okay

It very may well be the cause of his problem, Shawn-Lee

It becomes a very difficult situation. And he will likely get no support for change from his doctor.

The best option is to seek out an alternatively minded MD or an ND willing to take on the challenge (not all will) and get him off of those meds. It will take considerable detox, counseling, and big big diet changes as well as nutritional supplementation....perhaps a Clinical Nutritionist can also help. especially if you go with an alternatively minded MD.

People are brainwashed to believe that diet and nutrients have nothing to do with mental disorder but this is an out and out lie and and research on clinical nutrition done in many major US and European Universities has been repressed by the AMA and is not taught in medical school so don't expect to find help from the vast majority of medical doctors with this line of thinking.

Thank you. That helped me out a great amount, on both areas of my curiousity... the psychiatric question and the teeth.... Thats one question down.

The thing is, could it possibly be maintained using something else? I do know that too much flouride causes teeth problems and that the medicines that he is on are chock full of fluoride... but, could there possibly something that could be used... like a toothpaste or a set of natural remedies that could be used? .... that also is in regulations with state prision facilities? Or could the brittle teeth be caused when the psychiatric drug regimine is catalyst and combined with illegal drugs? (ie: heroin) ...

I do hope he could be helped... I mean, even if he can't be pulled off the psychiatric drugs, I really hope there is something that can be used to help him. The way he's going, he may need a full dentures set or a root canal or something equally painful and awkward... or, since there probably isn't dental offered where he is, he may loose his teeth all together? Is it a possibility?

Thank you for your time.

Default 4 year old root canal

OK I have been reading and a lot of you are blaming flouride for brittle theeth.
I have have hard teeth, but they are not brittle.
I didn't get my first cavity until I was in my 30's.

My wife on the other hand has very soft teeth.
She is like domisoaradian.
She had braces when she was younger.
Her dentist told her her teeth became brittle from the glue the dentist used.
She is now in her early 30's and has full dentures.

Now getting to the point.
A dentist once told me that the reason I did not have any cavities yet was because I had a very low acid level in my saliva.
I think this was the opposite end of the fulcrum from my wife.

I know this because I have a four year old daughter that had a root canal yesterday on her right lower bi-cuspid.
She will have another one this Saturday on her lower left.
This is all after having eight (8) cavities filled two weeks ago.
She uses childrens non-flouride tooth paste, and she has drank well water all her life.
She has a normal diet with all the food groups.

Now you may think this might just be coincidence, but that does not explain my other four (4) children.
Aging from 6-11, who have between them a combined total of 3 cavities.

Sorry to make this so long, but this is my question.
I can't remember who told me that you can change/balance the PH level in your body.

They didn't remember how just hearing about it when I was telling them about my wifes teeth.

I am just trying to find out if anyone has heard about this.
I don't want my daughter wearing dentures in highschool.

Default brittle teeth

Hi,

I'm 23 years old, I've never had a filling or anything wrong with my teeth.

I've used dentist teeth whitening twice in my life. I've drunk melbourne, australia water my whole life... and I've never had a problem with my teeth breaking. I've only taken antibiotics a handfull of times in my life, however twice this year (for infections).

In the last year my teeth have started chipping & breaking. I'm on a natural (but quite high) dose of thyroid extract to treat an underactive thyroid, and have been on it for nearly 3 years.

Would the thyroid have anything to do with my teeth suddenly becoming so weak? Or would it be the increase of antibiotics?

I'd be very appreciative of any help you can give!
