I appreciate your sharing the benefit of your experience. Once again I will say it sounds quite interesting and I do intend to pursue more information relating to it. However, I must say I take offense to your remark that 'most mental health professionals ... "dumb down" their clients with "meds"'. I think this is a dangerous and unfortunately common misconception that anti anxiety meds do nothing but make you numb, and anti depressants are happy pills. There are in fact chemicals in your brain that control these emotions, and if they are out of whack, no amount of meditating or introspective self discipline is going to change that. But the correct meds can put you back in balance so that you can be 'normal', meaning: you get sad, happy, anxious, nervous, and every other emotion, but you just don't get stuck there for no apparent reason. Anyway, that's just my opinion, and you are of course intitled to yours. I just ask that you don't refer to other people's choice of treatment as 'dumbing down'.
