It can be easier to adopt the ketogenic diet as a treatment for mental illness if you're not taking medications. But many other clinicians and I have seen many people taking medications for psychiatric disorders benefit from it. (1/6)
So, as @bschermd says in this video, don't let that hold you back. You just need the clinical support of a cooperative prescriber. (2/6)
@bschermd @Metabolic_Mind wants you to have this information so you can advocate for yourself and find a cooperative prescriber you can work with! (3/6)

🤬Express Scripts is sending cease & desist letters to pharmacists for calling out unethical acts on Twitter. It's time to get louder as they're destroying pharmaceutical care, forcing patients to bake meds or risk delays as the only coverage option @DGlaucomflecken @linakhanFTC
Express Scripts uses billions of $ to monopolize the industry. They buy lobbyists to ensure that legislators don't hear the cries of patients & pharmacists. Their attempts to silence will not work. This fight to save pharmacy is to save lives. Silence isn't an option. @BedoyaFTC
What is Express Scripts going to do? Take away $$ that pharmacists have worked hard for? They're doing that already. After starting Twitter & uncovering daily fraud w mail order, I learned a lot from #RxTwitter. Some pharmacists have now closed their doors due to Express Sxripts

What’s the deal w/ people in #pain using #opioids? (Read entire thread.) We are not “drug addicts.” We are physically DEPENDENT on our meds, which we need to function w/out pain (i.e, to function). Physical dependence occurs on heart meds & #antidepressants too. #ThisIsUs
And I am not trying to stigmatize #addiction here. But rly, let’s talk; chronic pain patients (#CPPs) have been forced to KILL themselves due to untreated pain, due to bad #policy, due to the #stigma, foolishness & financial incentives of others. This has a name: opiophobia…
If you took me off ALL opioids, I (like most #painpatients) would go through ugly opioid #withdrawals (and make sure to poop/puke on YOU for causing them)! 😂

#Battle of Kikan. The courageous #Jats & #Meds
The 3rd #Caliph was Usman ibn Affan (644–656 A.D.). Usman wanted to conquer #Sindh. He appointed Abdullah to Iraq & commanded him to send an agent to gather info about Hind & Sindh. 1/13
Abdullah deputed Hakim to acquire the desired info. Hakim reported that, “Its water is dark; its fruit is bitter and poisonous; its land is stony and its earth is selfish. A small army will soon be annihilated there and a large army will soon die of hunger.” 2/13
The 1st invasion of Sindh by land was carried out in 660 A.D. This expedition included many nobles & chiefs, & which was led by Haras, proceeded towards the mountainous region of Kikan or Kikanan unhindered. 3/13

Thinking of taking your loved one out of #longtermcare during the #covid19 ? There is *no easy answer*. But here are few things to think about:
1) Do they need to be transferred (bed / toilet / shower) and how would you do that?
2) Do they need a Hoyer lift? (thread continues)
3) Do you have the medications and expertise to provide the medical care?
4) Are you in danger of infecting other vulnerable members of your household?
5) How will you support them if they have dementia?
6) Do you have knowledge on how to support #incontinence & the products?
7) Who will you call if they get sicker either with #Covid19 or their underlying #health issues?
8) are they going to lose their #placement in the #nursinghome (in Ontario - the answer would be yes)
9) who else in your home needs care?
10) how will you support #socialengagement?
