Addressing Despair
(whether it's blaring, buried or "under control")

Yes, with everything going on in the world it can be a hell of a challenge to stay present, pay attention and manage to end the day without feeling despondent.

You don't have to be non-functional or outwardly troubled to be struggling with despair.

You may read this and be encouraged that you're holding up okay, all things considered. You may read this and be surprised to realize it's exactly how you're feeling. Or you might read this and see that it's describing a friend or loved one.

How we may experience despair, and how we respond to or even recognize it, can vary:

  • You feel like you're in a deep, dark pit and can't find the ladder.
  • The idea of the future is laughable, if you could feel like laughing.
  • It's taking more effort to convince yourself to get out of bed each day.
  • You're isolating yourself more than usual.
  • Watching or reading the news makes you feel hopeless.
  • Daily tasks take longer and are harder to think through than usual.
  • The world keeps turning, but it feels like you're watching rather than living in it.

If you need traditional support like one-on-one counseling or group therapy or other medical options — we encourage you to pursue them.

You can also make the most of what Perelandra has to offer. Start with what's do-able for you, add to it when you are ready, if you need more support.

If you would like to share Perelandra support with a loved one who is struggling, start with the simplest "good option" listed here.

The Good Option
ETS & EoP Infusion Pump

Take one dose (10-12 drops) of ETS for Humans 3 to 5 times a day. Keep doing this until you feel you have turned a corner in your day-to-day thinking and feeling.

If what you're feeling is of the more subtle variety, then 3 times a day may be all you need. If it's more extreme, stick with taking ETS 5 times a day for now.

Keep your EoP Infusion Pump in your pocket. This will help you more easily maintain your equilibrium through the normal ups and downs of your day.

Good Option

The Better Option
Add MBP Solutions

These kinds of feelings weaken your systems and can make you vulnerable. Support yourself with the basics. In addition to ETS for Humans, take the MBP Immune and Lymphatic Solutions twice daily.

And consider including MBP Balancing Solutions support for any other systems that you know could use some shoring up. We've found for despair and depression that the endocrine, nervous and digestive systems are sometimes in need. You can ask PIC which are best for you, or simply choose the Solutions that pique your interest.

The Best Option
PIC List Testing

Do a PIC List test with the focus of how you're feeling. You could write "life sucks" or "I'm sad/scared" or "I have no energy" or "I can't think" or "I want to fix my broken heart" as your PIC List focus and get a full read out of exactly which group of Perelandra Solutions and Essences you need to address that issue.

If you want to give it a try and you still can't seem to come up with something, look at the examples we gave in the beginning of this message. If you read something on that list and think, "Yep. That's how I feel." then that's a good focus to use for your PIC List test.

Note: You don't need to know PKTT and you do not have to own every bottle to test the PIC List and find out what you need!




A Bonus Tip
Never Underestimate Your Microbes

If this is something you have struggled with over time and isn't just related to current world circumstances, this might help. It's a personal story from one of you who has been through the wringer and found "The Missing Link" when she turned her attention to the health of her microbes.
