All the recent brouhaha about antidepressants ‘causing’ patients to become suicidal is not the fault of the antidepressants themselves, but rather the fault of this new laissez-faire treatment model, where psychiatrists are not keeping close enough tabs on their patients, and not talking to them about how they feel and why. Some of these antidepressants have been around for years. It’s not the antidepressant that’s changed for the worse, but the psychiatrists.
am appalled and saddened by the deterioration of psychiatry and psychiatrists, who have allowed the cost-cutting measures of insurance companies and governmental agencies to dictate the kind of treatment they give to patients.
It probably cliché to say that having a bad experience helps you appreciate the good. Yet it’s true! We went into our second round of therapy with much more confidence. Confidence in ourselves – that we felt in control, we could be outspoken and leave whenever we would so choose; and confidence in the therapist – we were able to ascertain that he was worth investing in.
Everything in my book is not “Hal Urschel’s approach”. I openly and willfully plagiarized the information from the NIH (National Institute of Health)! They have researched and developed really cool treatments but nobody is embracing them. The NIH is desperately trying to get clinical treatment providers to adopt these new breakthroughs, yet without much success over the last decade.
There is an archaic attitude that you should not treat addiction with medications. This myth could not be farther from the truth. That kind of thinking is left over from the 1960s.

Pay attention people. If you have been traumatized or abused or you have emotional problems your instincts tend to be slightly screwed up. You keep reaching for things you are already comfortable with and the things you are comfortable with are usually really harmful to you. You are like an addict in a way. Bad relationship addict or stupid choice addict or victim addict etc.
How many months of therapy will I need if I come to see you twice a week?”
Leslie thought for a moment. “Well, dear, you see, with your family history, you will most likely be in therapy for the rest of your life.”
Angelica felt as if she had been hit by a hammer.
And work is good. It gives us a sense of purpose and provides us with sustenance and keeps us from hanging out all day on the sofa watching T.V. and eating chips.
The raw and living lifestyle has had a dramatic impact on my life; mind, body, and spirit. The first 30 days, which are documented in my film, “Supercharge Me! 30 Days Raw” were the most dramatic. During that time, chronic aches and pains disappeared, my blurry vision cleared up, my sleep improved, my energy level increased, my mood elevated, my spiritual connection strengthened (at the end of the film Jenna is shown attending a church service), my mental function improved, my cholesterol dropped 50 points and I released 15 lbs. of excess weight.
