I want to be a breatharian: a case of TV emanation
DC, a 42 years old woman comes for exhaustion and frequent infections.
DC: “I have been sick a lot. It is these glands. I feel like they are knife-like pains in my glands. I had lumps that came and went under my arms. I had strep throat in November and I just was not recovering. I am just exhausted. But then I did it to myself. I am always staying up late. I will go to bed at 2 or 4 and then I am up at 8.
“I really want to change my diet for raw vegan food. I have been eating green smoothies and stuff. I feel like I would feel better. I feel like my adrenals are really bad. I keep buying cook books and never do anything with them.
“In fact I am not doing anything at all. I am really enjoying TV way too much. My memory isn’t good. It is just procrastination. I am with my son and then I am mentally wiped out and I turn on the TV. My husband gets hooked too. It is the way we spend time together. I did not have a TV for a long time because I know I am like this.
“When I am exhausted I am very tired and just dragging. By the end of this past summer I was exhausted with being a mother and then I would stay up watching TV to get some ‘me time’, but then I would get hooked watching one show after another. I would be exhausted the next day and then I would sleep and let my son watch either videos on the iPhone or TV. He was watching an hour or two of TV a day.
“As a kid I didn’t even like TV and I was just staring. People would walk by me and I didn’t even notice. I did not acknowledge anything. I would be terrified when my parents would go out at night and leave me. I would sit and stare at the TV to distract myself.
“I never had a bed time and so I would stay up watching late night TV. I would watch it with my dad. He was an alcoholic and I was holding his hand and watching TV with him and he would be drinking.
“I took care of my mom when she was sick and I would sit with her and watch TV. I remember sitting in the dark and watching the glow. I don’t even remember what I would watch, just the glow of the TV I guess. I didn’t really like the TV; I just don’t think I had a choice.
“I want to be a Breatharian. If you believe that your body is energy then you can live on energy.” (A breatharian is a person who is nourished by light and has no need for food or drink.)

I saw DC over the course of the next year, but it was always for her son. I could see she was getting better. She was much more productive and no complaints of illness. Finally, I was able to have a follow-up with her.
“I did not want to come in for a follow-up because I thought you might want to change my remedy and I didn’t want you to. I love this remedy!! I feel really, really healthy. Everything is manageable. I took control of everything. I was working on the house. I remodeled the kitchen… which I had wanted to do forever. I got rooms painted. I will move through my day and get things done. I was doing a raw diet and I was sleeping deeply and meditating a lot more. I have lost 30 pounds.
“I am feeling very strong and I have not been sick. I am feeling really healthy and not even worried about getting sick.
“In the beginning I would get drawn into watching TV to a degree, but I would become aware of the time and I would realize it was getting late and I would go to bed. Simple as that, I had control…… not the TV!
“But now I have given up TV. It is out of my life in a clear way. It was like a drug for me, sitting in front of it for hours and hours, so to not have that in my life is good. I used to feel this numbness and I would say 'I want to watch just one show' and it would turn into hours. So to have that out of my life is a relief.
“My meditation is better and I have resolved a deeper issue. I was attacked by a person I was living with and loved and I saw hell and I felt like God had turned me away. I was 18 and that was hanging over me for a long time, the feeling that I could not trust God. The resolution was that God did intervene, but not in the way I had expected. There was help, but I had not taken it. I have finally seen that God was there for me.
“I feel like I am much less judgmental toward myself and towards others as well. I have much less conflict with people. People are saying how nice it is to work with me, but it is because I am so much more comfortable in my skin. It is miraculous for me to have things go so smoothly with other people.”
