Natural Treatment For Self-Destructive Behavior

15The absurd pleasure that those who abuse their bodies feel when they bleed is a shocking example of how the anti-conscience manages to generate false impressions, feelings, and beliefs that have self-destructive implications and become strange addictions.

We like what is bad for us because we are easily misled by absurd thoughts and false feelings sent by our anti-conscience to our conscience. A mentally healthy person would never feel any pleasure by harming themselves.

However, a mentally ill individual controlled by their anti-conscience feels pleasure with terror because his/her conscience is dominated by the satanic characteristics of their wild conscience. A simulated suicide attempt is pure terror, but those who abuse their bodies give different definitions to their absurd tendency.

They don’t believe that it is something terrible that makes them live in terror. They believe that it is a way to find relief, even though they know that it is an absurd relief that is killing them. They want to stop doing it at a certain point, but they are unable to stop.

They become addicted to this strange masochistic pleasure when they hurt themselves and

Don’t Panic, It’s Only Panic

13Imagine driving down the road one day with your window down. You’re enjoying a nice breeze and the radio is on. The songs aren’t your favorite, but you like them because you know all of the words to almost all of them. Feeling happy and carefree.

Then it stops. Everything just stops.

All of the sudden you can’t breathe. You’re choking! Why are you choking? There is nothing to choke on! Maybe something else is happening. Maybe you’re having some kind of allergic reaction! To what, though? There’s nothing to be allergic to. Now your skin feels weird. One second you can’t feel anything, and then the next it almost feels like your skin is about to burn off. Something is wrong! Your heart! Your heart is beating so hard! It feels like it’s about to pound out of your chest. You have to find a way to pull over because you’re having a heart attack.

Scared! No, not scared.

Terrified.

Think About Brain Health

11Although it is mainly older people that are concerned with brain exercises, new research suggests that we should pay more attention to brain health from an early age.

One in ten people over the age of 65 have dementia, after the age of 85 it is one in three. One research scientist has likened it to superannuation, in as much as you should start investing in the health of your brain as early as possible.

The decline in brain function can take decades meaning that lifestyle in the early years will impact on the brain as we age.

Brain exercises are now considered perfectly normal. It seems that everywhere you go these days you will come across people doing crosswords, Sudoku and various types of activities to keep the brain in shape but not so long ago the idea that the brain needed exercising would have met with derision or scepticism.

Simple Steps to Deal With OCD

In layman’s term, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental illness that causes a person to do something repeatedly for no reason. Living with OCD can be quite unnerving and difficult. It does not discriminate, and can inflict anybody ranging from the rich and famous to the guy next door. There are many famous people who suffer from OCD and they could still manage to achieve what they are famous for.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), OCD means having obsessions, compulsions, or both. As outlined by the CDC, obsessions are defined by the following aspects:

  • Thoughts, impulses, or images that occur over and over again. Mostly, these thoughts, impulses, or images are unwanted, causing a lot of anxiety or stress.
  • The person who has these thoughts, impulses, or images constantly tries to avoid them at best, but to no avail.

Compulsions are defined by these two aspects:

  • Repeated behaviors like hand washing, placing things in a specific order, or checking things over and over, like whether a door is locked. It could also be thoughts like praying, counting, or repeating words silently over and over again.
  • The sole aim of following the above rituals or habits is to prevent or reduce

Substance Abuse Induced Mental Disorders

Co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis is a condition when somebody has an addiction and a mental disorder together. Substance abuse can also trigger a mental disorder resulting in co-morbidity. A study titled “Substance Abuse Treatment for Persons With Co-Occurring Disorders” says “the toxic effects of substances can mimic mental illness in ways that can be difficult to distinguish from mental illness.”

“Substance-induced disorders are distinct from independent co-occurring mental disorders in that all or most of the psychiatric symptoms are the direct result of substance use,” it mentions. Mental disorders induced by substance abuse range from “mild anxiety and depression (these are the most common across all substances) to full-blown manic and other psychotic reactions (much less common),” according to the study. If consumed in large quantities and for a long period, any substance can lead to a psychotic state.

Here, we take a look at some of the most common types of substance abuse and their corresponding psychiatric symptoms seen in intoxication, withdrawal, or chronic use:

Alcohol: When people drink – moderate to heavy – they experience euphoria, mood liability, decreased impulse control, and increased social confidence. We call it getting high. But prolonged consumption of alcohol increases the incidence of dysphoria,

Best Way to Treat Dual Diagnosis

Around 8.9 million Americans suffer from co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders every year, and only 7.4 percent of them receive appropriate treatment, says a 2015 report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). When a person suffers from both the problems simultaneously, for example a mood disorder like depression or bipolar disorder and addiction to alcohol or drugs, it is known as dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders.

It is difficult to know which of the two problems leads to the other. When the mental problem occurs first, a person may turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate or improve the mental health symptoms. In the other case, dependence on some substance may lead to some mood disorder.

A report by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) states that about one-third of people with a mental illness also battle a substance abuse. Dual diagnosis has a wide range of symptoms because of the presence of more than one conditions.

Identifying the signs

Some of the warning signs of dual diagnosis are extreme mood changes, isolation or lack of participation in social situations, confused thinking or problems in concentrating. Considering the symptoms, it is important to seek specialist advice

Dementia Is Not Just in Your Genes

It has been found recently that there are several genes that are directly associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease which is one of the most common causes behind the development of dementia. There are the genes that increase the chances of being affected by Dementia. More research is still being carried out on this new finding.

The functions of the cells of our body are controlled by our genes. Genes also determine our various basic characteristics like determining the color of our eyes. It has also been found that genes are not the sole reason behind the development of this disease. In the condition Dementia, thinking and memory of a person are affected.

Researchers also say that not only the genes are the cause behind the development of Dementia rather than there are a number of other factors that directly have an effect on our mental health. Our lifestyle has a big effect on our mental health. The food items we consume also affect our mental health. So, we can then say that dementia is not just in your genes.

Why Fiction Is More Favourable Than Fact and Dangerous to Mental Health

The importance of facts in our daily lives is overridden by fiction and make-believe that can wipe out fear and impact one with a brief taste of joy. In other words it is a drug and the wearing off of it causes pain and a longing for more to overcome it. The hooks sent out by fictional characters impact on one’s own life and they may even try to emulate a character from their favourite story. In any case what you take into the brain is food from which the body takes sustenance.

It’s easy to watch a movie than to take care of the house, if you are a housewife. It’s easier to send the kids off to watch television than to deal with their million and one questions. It’s also easier to read a book rather than worry about where the money to pay the overdue bills will come from.

Why Debt Is a Trigger for Suicide

Fear is the greatest motivator for most actions undertaken during one’s life. Society plans to make what we become part of the ‘norm’ and to be in a situation where control and power is in the hands of governments and religions. The Spirit within, which most have at birth, is at risk of being severed by what one learns during their early years. That is why indoctrination and early schooling is important. Capturing the mind and heart of the young is the best way to destroy their spirituality.

Religious leaders claim that one is born with evil within and that it must be overturned before the individual can be brought to God. The reverse is the reality, however, as one is already linked to God through that spiritual spark within that they call the ‘devil’.

Once the connection to our inner voice is overridden then things like fear and debt take shape. Babies have no fear before they are instructed into it. They want to explore and taste the world for themselves but parental hands prevent them from doing so. It’s the same as they grow up. They want to taste the world and discover the limits for themselves, This time there

Mental Illness in Children

It’s an outstanding fact that children today have far more mental illnesses today than say 50 years ago. They may appear smarter and many are but the majority are struggling beneath the surface to cope with day-to-day life. More is expected of them but in the society of my region they are not prepared for it physically or mentally. They are mollycoddled when young to the extent that they don’t know how to overcome their difficulties. But that is only one of the problems.

As a grand-mother and one keen on early training into later-life occupations the report on local Australian television’s Sunday Night program of extreme parenting (13th March, 2016) was of great interest. It showed parents pushing young children into adult type adventures and training them to use their own skills to escape when things went wrong.

In one location where mountaineering and abseiling were on the agenda there was not a single case of ADHD or any other mental illness in the young. In cities, however, where children are taken into day care and given other forms of opportunities the number of cases of these things are alarming.

How the First Three Steps Heal in Sexual Recovery

Step 1: We realize that we are powerless over sex-that our lives have become unmanageable. Admitting one’s powerlessness is the first defeat of infantile egoism (a narcissistic view of one’s self as the center of the universe). This is the first step towards the goal of assuming responsibility, and becoming a healthy, mature individual.

During Step 1’s acceptance process, the addict starts to believe he can no longer engage in his addiction. The reality of the situation-that he has become powerless when dealing with overwhelming sexual desires and no longer has control over his own behavior-becomes a steadfast truth. He must face this key component of his life. Denial starts to give way as the addict quickly sees that his harmful impulses are having wide-ranging, debilitating effects. The addict comes to realize this unavoidable paradox: you have to lose to win.

One key aspect of the first step is the concept of “surrender,” of which there are two facets in Step 1. The most significant change during this period is the formation of the deep belief that one has no power over their sexual addiction. During this period, the addict also surrenders his sense of uniqueness. After admitting one’s powerlessness, one no

Think About How You Think Thought Forms

I recently had the privilege of working with a client that clearly showed me the power of long held thought forms and patterns. It has led me to reflect on how powerful the mind is at interpreting our individual world based on the programmed thought patterns that form our inner world and become our outer experience as well.

Being human we all are imprinted with thought patterns – beliefs, judgements, opinions, etc. that come from our caretakers as children and then added to by friends, acquaintances, significant others, educators, and many more. Some of these patterns are benign – causing us no inner limitations that transfers to our outer experience. If, as the thought forms and patterns are initially imprinted, they are done so with elements of emotional difficulty – pain, fear, disempowerment, denial of the self, loss, disrespect, etc. then it creates thought forms and patterns that are limiting and disrupting in the present moment. It seems that sometimes these negative imprinting patterns are done without intent or malicious design – but the most damage to our inner thought forms is done when the patterning is done by purposeful, malevolent intention.

Anxiety and Depression What’s the Difference?

Anxiety and depression are commonly used diagnostic terms that often confuse people. In a nutshell, both are emotional disorders which are having correlation with each other but not the same. Anxiety is known to lead to depression whereas for depression, it could be worsening when increased anxiety is applied to a person who has depression.

When an individual is overwhelmed by anxiety, it may be a common sight if it is under control. However, when it gets out of control, it could bring lots of problems to emotional health and personal well-being.

Anxiety is an emotional state characterized by persistent feelings of worry, nervousness and unease. It would cause the persons to be drawn into beliefs that something unpleasant would happen. This would lead to lots of anxious thoughts and uncontrollable physical sensations which could make them fret over things. They might react in such a way that they will avoid doing things that shouldn’t be avoiding due to the doubts and indefinite future events which they aren’t confident of themselves being able to overcome them.

Depression, on the other hand, is a negative emotional state as a result of constantly blaming and regretting the past action. It may arise in the individual’s

You Really Are As Happy, Loving, Kind and Peaceful As You Choose to Be

“Happiness is a choice. You are as happy as you choose to be.” ~Richard Duane “Rick” Warren”

Take a moment, get in touch with yourself, and think about the choices you are making. And now think whether these choices will lead you to everlasting happiness and joy or will they bring pain, sadness, guilt, frustrations and emotional, mental and physical discomfort, now or in the later run. What do these choices say about you and how do they define you? Do they give you a feeling of joy, peace and love, or does it seem like they’re pulling you down? If it seems more like the latter, then ask yourself this: Do I choose to stick with these choices, or should I make new, positive and better ones that’ll help me in my emotional, mental and spiritual growth? Am I courageous enough to shape my life the way I choose to? Or do I want to continue to live like a slave to my situations?

Identifying and Treating Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis is a broad category of mental illness wherein a person suffers from more than one coexisting disorders, usually a mood disorder such as depression or anxiety and substance abuse problem like addiction to drug or alcohol. Also termed as comorbidity or co-occurring disorders, it may affect an individual physically, psychologically and socially.

It is difficult to determine which problem led to the other, as any of the two – mental illness and substance abuse – can develop first. A person experiencing a mental illness may turn to alcohol or drugs to improve the troubling symptoms they experience. However, substance abuse only worsens those symptoms. At the same time, abusing substances can also lead to mental health problems because of the effects drugs have on the person’s mood, behavior and brain chemistry.

Addictions are chronic, deteriorating brain disorders that change the brain functioning – with effects of drugs being much harmful, and often, self-destructive to the brain. According to a 2014 report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), addictions cost America more than $800 billion annually and causes nearly 90,000 deaths.

Over the years since the Spirit commissioned me to remove the wall of confusion that fogs people’s brains there have been many healed by it as they come to me for counselling and help. Mostly they are lost in webs of lies and distorted facts and they can’t find their way out. The stories they tell are often horrendous and all are based on some kind of religious propaganda or laws and they concern themselves with what happens in the after-life.

The Spirit worked in her case to get her back on track.

A Natural Bipolar Disorder Treatment That Really Works

Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder that clearly reflects the existence of a second, independent conscience in our brain, which replaces our human conscience after destroying it.

If you have manic or hypomanic periods when you are controlled by euphoria and you don’t pay attention to various dangers, and if after a certain period of time you are immersed in an unbearable depression, this probably means that you are bipolar, but you can have cyclothymia, which is a mild mood disorder. You have to understand how serious your mental health problem really is by translating the meaning of your dreams.

Your dreams reflect your psychological system, showing you how to fight the absurdity that invades your conscience, and how much this absurdity is affecting your mind and behavior.

If you are bipolar you are controlled by your anti-conscience during the period of mania and during the period of depression. This means that your human conscience is not working. You are controlled by your wild conscience, the terrible anti-conscience, which destroyed a big portion of your conscience and keeps trying to completely destroy your conscience.

When one is faced with seemingly insurmountable problems how can we motivate the individual to help him or her change their perception of reality?
