Thanks to micronutrient therapy Amber is no longer suicidal or taking 6 drugs for brain disorders

Amber’s story

Hi, my name is Amber and this is my “Truehope story”. When I was four years of age, I was diagnosed with ADHD and was prescribed Ritalin. I spent my whole childhood, youth and young adult life on medications. I was told that I would always be on some sort of med for the rest of my life. There was even a time when I was on Lithium, Clonazepam, Loxapine, Baciofen, and Macrobid all at once.

I have tried suicide several times, causing me to be hospitalized more times than I can remember. The last time I ended up in the hospital was from March to June 2007. I had just had a visit with my doctor and he told me that I would never be able to reduce my meds, let alone get off them. I returned to the group home where I was living and proceeded to break into the med cupboard, where I took over thirty Lithium. When the staff found me, I was not breathing, and they called 911.

The Kingston General hospital is where I woke up from a coma. I had a breathing tube down my throat and my hands were tied to the bed. Three months later when I left the hospital, I was on very little medications, and it was then that I switched to the Truehope program.

I have been on micronutrients for two years now last June. I was able to get a job working 5 days a week, a big improvement from when I was on medications. Back then I was hardly able to work one full day a week.

I have weighed as much as 400 pounds, caused greatly by the side effects from all the medications I was on. I now weigh 200 pounds less, but my physical and mental well being has been affected greatly by the weight loss and the surfacing of all stored medications. Some days I feel like I am going backwards. I have sad days and sick days, but the support people at Truehope and I are working together once again. I am gaining an understanding of how and why these drugs continue to surface, how to deal with them when they do surface, and how to rid myself of them.

I felt like I was stoned all the time from the medications. From all the attempts to take my life, it was obvious that I was living in a constant despair. Then True hope came along.

The road ahead is going to be bumpy at times, but I hold onto the hope that I will one day be truly well. Thank you Truehope. If it wasn’t for you, I know I would not be here today.


Do know someone that needs to hear that there is hope, health and healing? Please share this story.

Livin’ Life eXponentially!
