How to get off long term painkillers and lose weight

Are you on painkillers daily for arthritis and is your health declining? Read on…

Michelle suffered from arthritis for over 20 years. There is no cure from modern medicine for arthritis.

The only thing the doctors can prescribe are painkillers and anti-inflammatories.

The problem with using these two drugs long term is that the body gets used to them.

Inevitably, you end up taking more and more painkillers, increasing your dosage and strength. Meanwhile the actual cause of the pain has not shifted in any way. Nobody has addressed the actual problem – what is causing the pain in the joints.

Daily painkillers have a huge long term effect on the liver which has to process these man-made drugs. They also have consequences on the gut – which is only designed to process natural food substances.

You end up with more problems then when you started.

Michelle suffered for decades with high levels of inflammation in her body, and arthritis in most of her joints mainly in the knees, hands, shoulders, upper and lower back.

This was her daily regimen for over 20 years:

  • Co-codamol 8 x 500 mg daily high dose
  • Inflammatory naproxen 2 x daily
  • Anti-depressants with a sedative called Mitrazapine 1 x daily
  • Lansoprazole 1 x daily
  • HRT 1 x daily

Michelle came off came off all her meds apart from HRT two weeks before she started the detox. She started getting really bad withdrawal symptoms such as shakes, headaches and nausea.

Detoxing painkillers actually reduces pain – what does that say about what those drugs are actually doing to your body?

I prescribed a Co-codamol detox over 2 months with liver supports to help ease the toxins out of her body. She took this detox with a constitutional remedy which matched her arthritic symptoms.

Michelle saw positive results very quickly during the detox, even though she is still on HRT.

Within 20 minutes of taking the first Co-codamol detox pill her was headache she had for a week had gone!

“All inflammation gone!

Hardly any pain sleeping now.

I am going to the toilet regularly now for the first time ever and I have lost a stone in weight in 5 weeks.”

This is not a one off.

This isn’t a co-incidence.

I am detoxing drugs that people have used for long periods of time constantly. I detox Tylenol/Calpol in children and see improvements in long term stomach issues and constipation.

I detox anti-sickness meds, paracetamol, aspirin, anti depressants, contraceptive pill, etc, and see original complaints disappear.

This is Michelle’s story. I hope her words reach out and touch someone else wanting another way to treat their pain.

It can be your story too. If you have been on long term medicines you can still heal.

HPV- Gardasil and Cervarix Injury New Criteria Guidelines

If you are a Gardasil injured person looking to book in, please read this new criteria first.

As we are the most experienced homeopathic team dealing with this type of case, we have decided to only take on clients who fit the new criteria below. If you do not fit the criteria below then homeopathy can still work for you, but we are not the right therapists for you.

1. The patient has to be committed to healing themselves and understand that they are fully responsible for their health.


That the patient doesn’t rely on us and the pills to do all the work. To understand that their lifestyle choices will speed up or impair recovery and that no medicine can be a substitute for lifestyle choices that hinder recovery. At the end of the day, we are all responsible for ourselves, and the choices we make.

2. To begin working with us the patient has to have in place or commit to having a clean sleep routine.

This means going to sleep with the lights out by 10 pm the latest and being on no devices an hour beforehand. All of our patients have adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. When you go to bed late or are on devices late, then too much light is being emitted from phones/tablets a few inches from your eyes. That amount of bright light signals the body to make more adrenaline because it thinks it’s in the afternoon and that then creates more cortisol that prevents sleep and makes you tired in the morning. Melatonin and pineal levels are messed up too. Our patients have severely imbalanced hormones, and melatonin, the pineal gland, adrenals and the thyroid all need to be in balance to recover. If your sleep cycle is out, you don’t need pills to correct it – you just need to get a clean sleep routine and your body will get into balance in a couple of days. What you do when you are recovered is up to you – but if you want to work with us, this is a non-negotiable requirement.

3. You are not on the contraceptive pill or are on steroid inhalers.

These are synthetic hormones and are a big block to curing. When someone is on these, we can’t really get started as they are contributing to the hormones being unbalanced. We can work with you if you intend to come off the pill before your prescription starts or if you intend to come off inhalers before we start detoxing. We cannot start detoxing or bring you to a full recovery unless these 2 medicines are out of the picture. We can help with period pain, and asthma anyway in the prescriptions. If you are fully reliant on these medicines then we are not the therapists for you.

4. You have a good diet and eat vegetables.

What you eat affects your health. A lot of the imbalance in the body centres in the stomach. This doesn’t mean you have stomach pains – but your microbiome is key to healing. We are looking for patients who eat some vegetables and fruits. We cannot work with patients who just eat processed food and no fruits and vegetables at all. We can work with patients who have a limited diet but are committed to eating a wider variety of healthy foods. If you don’t meet this criteria it will take too long to help you fully recover and we will only get halfway.

5. If you are on prescribed medicines it is your wish and intention to get off them.

Some patients want to stay on medication while asking us to fully heal them. All medicines come with side effects, which we can’t heal while the patient is on them, therefore we are being asked to do an impossible task. Of course, we see many patients on meds and they end up reducing their dosage and not needing them. They actively don’t want to be on them. If you are happy with any medicines and want to stay on them, then we are not the therapists for you. We are interested in working with people who want to be fully and holistically well, and only then can we work to the best of our ability.


If you fulfil this criteria then we are confident that we can heal the majority of patients in 1-3 sessions.
