“I had been to Psychiatrists before. I had had hypnosis, which did not work. I had been dosed with medication, which worked for a few weeks but always the side effects were not worth the waning “help” that the “medication” gave. I tried many different Anxiety and Antidepressants, all of them failed within a month or so. Much like putting a band aid on a cancer, maybe it “seems” like it will be better but it’s really no help at all; messing up the mind and body in different ways, making one sluggish, dull and disrupting the digestive system. I never had any faith in modern pharmaceuticals, so I avoided medication for decades, but had come to a breaking point, so I had to try something. But then, none of it worked, repeatedly.
Dr. Tummala provided a fresh look at life, not an easy one, but one that promised remedy.
After having been through sessions with Dr. Tummala I have come to realize that I am not only not Bi-Polar, I am not Depressed and I am not Anxious. I have, like so many others, been broken, and suffered through trauma in my childhood being shaped, and reshaped by my reactions to this past trauma.
After a time with Dr. Tummala I have come to hear my own inner voice, the true version of my soul that has finally been allowed to speak and take center stage. My anger issues have diminished, I can choose to be happy for myself and see the world and existence from a larger point of view. I have addressed both sides of myself, the light and the dark, without trying to run or medicate the darkness.
The diet has helped me to be conscious of every moment of my day, to love myself, as I should have from the beginning. It is a whole system of wellness, not just a pill to fix the problem. It requires an open mind to change the way one thinks, and to engage life, in a new fashion.
I can certainly say that I do not in any way feel the need to be medicated, I do not feel “bi-polar” or depressed as I previously been labeled. Instead, I feel human, real and awake.”
