Does depression affect adults only? No. For singer and songwriter Judy Collins, depression began in her teenage years and is as vivid to her now as it was then. For Collins, her depression led to alcoholism, which damaged her vocal cords and threatened her career.
Can depression travel through families? Yes. In her particular case, Judy Collins described her depression as a family legacy. It affected her father, herself, and her son, Clark, who committed suicide in 1992. In fact, scientists are currently investigating the hereditary, genetic bases for depression.

Three Dimensional Therapy puts a whole new spin on healing core belief systems. It addresses surface level beliefs, deeper beliefs and a deep core belief. So, to address the faulty belief system, one must get to the core issue to release it as well as all the associated faulty beliefs on these three levels.
So how do you go about addressing your belief systems on all three levels?
Join me as I interview Three Dimensional Therapy Experts, Gwen S. Legler, MSW and Leilani A. Alexander, B.S.naswe discuss:
How you can gain understanding of your Core Desire and how it affects your belief systems.
How Three Dimensional Therapy allows you to identify your core belief systems at much deeper levels including their origins, removing them, and replacing them with empowering beliefs.
How “cording”, PTSD, Conception Energy and Vanishing Twin Syndrome can be quickly addressed with Three Dimensional Therapy.

Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol? Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs. People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction.
KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

Sad news recently that singer/songwriter Glen Campbell has released his final song and that he is in the 6th of 7 stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s doesn’t just affect those afflicted; it takes an enormous toll on the caregivers: family, spouses, the children. The baby boomers are facing a crisis. If no effective treatment or cure, 50% of those over 85 will get Alzheimers.
