New Answers to Mental Illness

– Posted in: Health/Environment

Revolutionary new thinking is breaking out in all areas of life right now as we have been reporting, and one of those areas that may be more surprising is the area of mental health. The mental health industry which has historically been plagued by draconian ideas, horrific treatments, and junk science, has finally started to step out of the dark ages and into the 21st century, and nowhere is that more evident than in the treatments they are starting to embrace and the ones they are leaving behind.

Going to the wind are the ideas of punishments, harsh confinement, and dangerous drugs, and taking its place are a plethora of new, innovative, and empowering treatments which show great promise and true results.

We thought we would give you a brief list of some of the exciting, new, and very encouraging discoveries coming to light right now.

Finally, after many years of pleading from the natural health community, diet and nutrition are being looked at more than ever, and the mental health professionals are admitting that diet and nutrition can play a much bigger role in mental health than previously believed. Deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals are now being isolated as the true source of what had previously been labeled as mental, emotional, addictive, or behavioral problems.

One previous drug rehab counselor stated “We had a girl just have an absolute psychotic break on us here, so we sent her to the doctor for more blood testing. They found a copper deficiency and corrected it and she suddenly turned back into the sweetest most coherent girl. It was amazing!”

A male patient who had suffered anger, depression, and rage, was found to have high iron levels to blame. When the iron levels were corrected, the symptoms disappeared.

Also getting a new look is Hormone therapy. Doctors and patients alike are now finally realizing what an incredible role hormones can play in emotion. One patient related that she could go from suicidal to happy and enthusiastic from as little as one dose of thyroid hormones.

NAD, or Vitamin B-3, has been shown to be effective at treating Schizophrenia, depression and addiction, as previously reported by RealGoodNews.

Truehope EMP, is a vitamin and mineral supplement that has shown huge success in the treatment of depression, anxiety, bi-polar and other depressive disorders. Truehope has an interesting backstory because it was developed by a man whose family had suffered from depression and suicide, and a pig feed formulator, who both just happened to run into each other and hit upon the subject. Their website offers products and information.

Lithium Orotate has been discovered by Dr. Mark Millar to be highly effective in the treatment of depression, suicide, and PTSD. The doctor founded Operation Set Them Free and has been urging it’s use in stopping veteran suicide. His website offers books, supplements, and information.

Heavy Metal Detoxing using Bentonite clay formulations or horsetail herb has proven effective in ending depression, anxiety, lethargy, electric limbs, and brain fog.

Sound Frequency therapy has proven effective at relieving stress, depression and anxiety. There are practitioners all over the world offering this therapy. There is even frequency therapy at a distance; quantum frequency therapy. There are even frequencies one can use on youtube to help raise one’s tone.

Biofeedback has proven effective at relieving stress, anxiety, depression, and other disorders. Biofeedback has been used for decades, however it’s applications and benefits are improving as technology improves. Quantum biofeedback is also available, which is again, biofeedback at a distance.

Traumatic Incident Reduction therapy, or TIR, has been very effective at dealing with past traumas and PTSD. The therapy promises an end to the continual suffering of past traumatic incidents, by recounting the incident until it no longer causes a reaction, so that one may go on to lead a happy life without feeling stuck in the trauma or effected by it in daily life. With a properly trained therapist, life changing results are usually achieved in one session, which is generally an hour or so long.

Legal Abuse Syndrome, or LAS, is a concern for many Americans at this time and can be extremely challenging. One therapist stated that one of the best ways to help someone recover is to “move the person into a position of being at slight, gentle cause over their situation”. For those suffering from Legal Abuse Syndrome, or LAS, getting good information and having an advocate on your side can have a powerful effect on yourself and your legal issues. Dr. Karen Huffer can offer this insight and assistance through her organization, Legal Access Advocates.

Animal Therapy has become popular in the treatment of addiction, anxiety, anger, depression, as well as many medical conditions such as autism and Tourette’s Syndrome. Many animal therapy centers are popping up all over the place.

Gardening has become another popular alternative for treatment of addiction, depression, and anxiety. There are centers that offer the therapy and it seems to be popular with patients and staff alike.

Music and art therapy are gaining ground and acceptance as well. Many therapists are recommending that patients begin an art class, or pick back up an art form they had previous interest in.

One therapy that has been successfully used in the treatment of extreme anxiety and PTSD is simply called “Reach and Withdraw”. It is a powerful therapy which can be done with a practitioner or alone. It is mentioned here due to it’s high effectiveness rate and ease of implementation. When done with a practitioner, the practitioner should give the commands and always acknowledge the person when they have completed the command with a “thank you” or “good” before giving another command. When doing the exercise alone, be sure and acknowledge yourself, you’re doing a great job after all! So the exercise goes like this:
Give a command such as “Focus on the anxiety and describe it”
Then acknowledge when that is done, “Thank you”
Then command the person to focus on something outside of the anxiety; “Focus on the ____________ (door, table, dog, etc…) and describe it”
Be sure and acknowledge “Good”
Repeat first command; “Now, focus on the anxiety and describe it to me”
Acknowledge; “Good”
Back out of the anxiety again; “Focus on the ___________ (door, table, dog, etc…)and describe it”
Simply repeat this until the anxiety lessens and the person feels better. It can be used over and over, and usually has to be in the beginning, but with time and repetition, it has been reported to lessen the symptoms greatly in frequency and intensity; it has even been credited with saving lives.

CCHR, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, reported in one of their documentaries that studies have shown that a kind word and a pat on the back could produce as high a success rate as many psychiatrists produce in months of regressive or “talk” therapy, which I think just goes to show grandma was right, when you feel blue, you should have a good meal, make a friend, and find a nice hobby! Outside of that, the above therapies are showing incredibly life changing results and merit investigation if you or someone you know is suffering from any of these symptoms.

In short, the whole industry is opening up to new ideas and having great success with them. The future is bright with promise, and more and more answers are being discovered all the time.

If you or someone you know is suffering, start with a really good analysis of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, look at hormones and possible toxins, and incorporate any or all of the above therapies and you are sure to find successful answers.

A Google search will turn up results for any of the therapies listed here.

RealGoodNews will be bringing you more in depth stories on some of the above therapies in upcoming issues.
