Beverly Hills Shrink-Dr. Carole Lieberman, Part 2

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

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.


Beverly Hills Shrink-No Holds Barred Interview with Dr. Carole Lieberman

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

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.


Therapy Gone Wrong: Paris Tells Her Story

Monday, May 24th, 2010

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.


Healing the Addicted Brain: Interview with Dr. Hal Urschel, Part Two

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

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.

At a subsequent session, after she tentatively questioned him again, Dr. Lange told her she simply must trust him. “How can you expect to ever trust your husband if you don’t trust me”?


Therapy-Gone-Wrong: Angelica in Her Own Words

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.


Work Can Cause Stress; More Work Causes More Stress

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

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.


Food and Mood: 15 Pounds Lost in 21 Days

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

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.
