Medication Mantras

In the third of a series of videos about LBD and the medical system, Pat Snyder, author of Treasures in the Darkness and LBD teacher, talks some more about LBD and medication. Because she doesn't list the mantras until the end, I'm listing them here so you can connect each one with what she says about it.
  • Make one change at a time
  • Start low
  • Go slow
  • Learn what drugs to avoid
  • Be excited about what drugs are available
Here's Pat's 7.5 minute video: Medication Mantras
