Much of my focus and writings are spent discussing how to change how you look on the outside. It is easily argued what is more important are internal changes that influence your health. For me the discussion is not worth spending too much time upon as an approach to improve either one will also benefit the other. Therefore, it is more prudent to see which focus engages the mind and your motivation the most.

One of my online clients has shown how the two sides interact, while he has lost a nice amount of weight he also got the all clear this week from his doctor to come off his medications for mental health issues. Here is what he said – 

“Just like to say a massive thankyou to Ben Wilson for playing a big part in my health & fitness and recovery journey. I’m finally medication free for my mental health and 4 years sober next month. He is really supportive and full of knowledge around the goals set out whatever they’re. I’m getting results were I didn’t think was possible so now I recommend this guy to others. So anyone thinking of getting a PT Ben will definitely help you achieve your goals and I’m looking forward to learning more from him. Enjoy your journey just like I am!”

I have been lucky enough to see many people come off their medications over the years. This has ranged from blood pressure to thyroid medication and various prescriptions for mental health issues. The key is working with your doctor so they are able to change your treatment schedule. There is a reason you are on them so something must change for a Doctor to be able to take you off them.

To do this you have to help your doctor by helping your body. So many health issues are benefited from changes in your exercise, sleep and food behaviours. Changes in body shape also benefit a variety of health conditions. As you change the stimulus on the body you will change its internal functioning also. This means you may be able to change your medications if your doctor sees fit.

The best way for this to happen is to ask your doctor what would they need to see to be able to think about changing their treatment plan. Then you must go out and deliver the health stimulus and see how the body reacts.  With an ongoing open dialogue with your doctor you will see if your body is one that responds enough to reduce or eliminate prescription drugs.
