Cutting down medicines

I have cut down on many of my asthma medications like Montelukast and Deriphylin which I have been taking fairly regularly. I did this after I read that Montair ( thats Motelukast) a very important Asthma preventive can also aggravate depression and sucidal thoughts. I am also worried about my obesity which seems to have its roots in many of the medicines I have been taking over the years. Havent had any distressing symptoms ( touch wood) after cutting down my pills but I am keeping them at my side just in case.

My psychiatrist suggested lifestyle changes and shifts in priorites and I have more or less been able to implement them with better results. Learning how to swim and feeling good about it.Have made some noticable progress, that too without proper coaching inputs.

What about this past life business? Well for one, I havent been really able to follow it up regularly though I do think that there is something there which one has to find out and probe into further. Ashwini and I attented one free seminar on Self Hypnosis organized by Indian Council of Hypnotherapists and got some useful information regarding practicing hypnotherapists and doctors. I am going to give it a shot and try for myself. The doctors said that hypnotherapy helps asthmatic patients a great deal. One of them said that in adults asthma, psychological factors have a far greater role to play in comparision to childhood asthma, which is more about allergy.

Lets see where all these buffaloes lead me!!!!!
