Metamucil and Coffee to Poop, Alcohol to Sleep. These Health Band-Aids are not doing you any favors. 

If you’re using coffee to poop and alcohol to sleep, it’s not normal. Nor do you have to settle or tolerate feelings or symptoms. 

t’s time to rip off these false health band-aids. If constipation or chronic energy needs coffee or if relaxation and sleep don’t come without a nightcap, listen here for the damage these crutches, or health band-aids can have long-term. 

Other band-aids are Tylenol or Advil for headaches and migraines. We take them often without wondering why are we getting them or what do they mean. If sugar is calling you too often, why would that be and what could the sugar be doing to you as well as doing for you? 

It’s a no-judgment zone today! There may be something here for you and if not you, for someone you love.
