    Toxic Shaming: Speaking the Unspeakable Truth of Psychiatric Violation

    in Current Events

    Vast numbers of us find ourselves shamed or ashamed as a direct result of having been psychiatrized.  What if this is not an accident?  Could it be that toxic shame is a direct intention of psychiatry, not just a byproduct? Is psychiatry using shame in the same way it uses other so-called ‘treatments’ – as a means to silence dissent, marginalize critique and enforce compliance with dominant culture ‘norms.’  Regardless of intentions, what is the implication of an entire profession actively exploiting clinician-patient power differentials so that its members are free to force their will on vulnerable, unconsenting service recipients?  


    In this episode, we explore our lived experiences with what we are coming to term ‘psychiatric molestation.’  We discuss how the medical model has positioned psychiatry to ‘have its way with us’ in body, mind and spirit.  We openly challenge the violation inherent in any posture of ‘clinical intercourse’ which dictates that the psychiatrist is always on top, dominant and entitled to exercise power, while relegating patients to the bottom, submissive, receptacle role.  Finally, and most importantly, we ask how we can overcome iatrogenic shame and recover from the damage that psychiatry has done to us on physical, mental, moral, social and existential levels.

  • Can I Get A Like! Being Someone You're Not

    in Lifestyle

    Acceptance a poem by Barbara Dixion


    Dear self,
    This is who I am
    This is all I've got
    These are my mistakes
    And everything I'm not
    I'm not asking for your love
    I want you to accepct me
    LEt go of these chains
    Set me free
    Yes I mess up
    And I'm nowhere near perfect
    But are the brusises and scars
    Really worth it
    Maybe I'm just a kid
    Who grew up way too fast
    And I'm tryna make a future
    But i'm stuck in the past
    And you look so skinny
    But You feel fat inside
    You eat to cure
    The emotions that have died
    And you're dying to be loved
    Cause you don't even love you
    And you're sitting in pain
    Don't know what to do
    you look and smile in the mirrior
    But the smile looks fake
    And looking at yourself
    Was another mistake
    You hate yourself
    And you wish you were pretty
    And so you wallow
    In your self pity
    You're hoping to be accepcted
    Cause you're so misunderstood
    You'd change your life in a second
    If only you could
    Feel less worthless
    And gain some self esteem
    Maybe things wouldn't be
    As bad as they seem
    So you're writing yourself
    This letter
    In hopes that
    You'll get better
    Maybe one day you'll see
    That you're a shooting star
    You'll see that you've come
    So very far
    And accepct yourself
    For who you are

    Radio Show: How Your Gut May Guide the Workings of Your Brain

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:



    How bacteria in your digestive system may influence your moods, behavior, and feelings
    The real truth about how the way you digest your food influences your brain
    How your stomach acid affects the chemical communication system in your brain


    Background:


    If you’ve ever “gone with your gut” to make a decision or felt “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous, you’re likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain.  Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health, and even the way you think.


    Scientists call this little brain the enteric nervous system (ENS). And it’s not so little. The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum.


    Dr. Ritamarie is the founder of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, and has over 23 years of clinical experience as a functional medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist

    You Are What you eat: Please join us in this topic Call 646-478-5157 1-4pm est:


    If your mental image of an older person is someone frail and thin, it may be time for an update. For the generation currently moving through middle age and beyond, a new concern is, well, growing: obesity. Government figures show that Americans in their 60s today are about 10 pounds heavier than their counterparts of just a decade ago. And an even more worrisome bulge is coming: A typical woman in her 40s now weighs 168 pounds, versus 143 pounds in the 1960s. "People used to start midlife [at a lower weight] and then lose weight when they got into their 50s, but that doesn't happen as much anymore," says David Kessler, former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and author of The End of Overeating.


    If you're entering that danger zone now, be aware that it's not going to get any easier to lose weight, because people need fewer calories as they age. Blame slowing metabolism and the body's tendency starting in midlife to lose muscle mass—a process known as sarcopenia—and gain fat, especially around the abdomen. (Fat burns fewer calories than does muscle.) "All that conspires to make it harder for people to maintain the same body weight when they eat their usual diets," says Alice Lichtenstein, director of the cardiovascular nutrition laboratory at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University. "People have fewer discretionary calories to play with, so they need to make better food choices."

    Guatemala needs profound change- Months of protests have coalesced into unified outrage against Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina after the nation’s top prosecutors disclosed evidence that he was embroiled in a graft scandal. A national strike on Aug. 27 has shuttered schools and businesses and brought tens of thousands to the street, with many on SOCIAL MEDIAproclaiming, “I have no president.”  This is a fragile moment for a nation that has never reckoned with the bloody legacy of its internal conflict, from 1960 to 1996, which saw the deaths of more than 200,000 Guatemalans, mostly indigenous Mayans. Guatemala has yet to dismantle the inequality, poverty and racism that gave rise to that conflict. The U.S.-backed elites who used state-sponsored terrorism to crush the 36-year insurgency still wield power

  • The UnSlut Project: Stop "Slut" Shaming and Sexual Bullying

    in Relationships

    Have you ever been called a "slut"? If so, how did you feel? Whether you are sexually active or not the term can be hurtful and embarrassing. If you’re a parent of a teen, have you heard about "slut" shaming and the dire effects it can have on your impressionable teenager?


    "Slut" shaming and sexual bullying is occurring every day in America. Many teens are experiencing these issues and feel uncomfortable reporting it to their parents or other adults. Emily Lindin, who founded of The UnSlut Project in April 2013, found herself in this exact situation when she was eleven. She began journaling about these incidents of "slut" shaming and sexual bullying she faced in school.


    As Emily published her journal entries, she hoped that her words would reach teens experiencing the same thing bringing awareness about this prevalent issue. The UnSlut Project started as a small online personal submission and has now grown to incorporate the stories of girls, women, and men of many ages, backgrounds, and nationalities. Emily will be discussing the UnSlut Project and her upcoming video project “Slut: A Documentary Film” and her soon to be released book, “UnSlut: A Diary and A Memoir”.


    Emily Lindin is the founder of The UnSlut Project, ? an online community where survivors of sexual bullying and "slut" shaming can share their stories, and where girls who are currently suffering can find support and solidarity.


    ?The UnSlut Project's crowd-funded film, "Slut: A Documentary Film," is in post-production and Emily's book, "UnSlut: A Diary and A Memoir," will be published in Dec., 2015.
