Tune in as we discuss the facts which Doctors don't want you to know because they want you to depend on drugs and not have a quality of life.
Neurofeedback is an increasingly promising alternative treatment for a variety of psychiatric disorders. For readers who are unfamiliar with this type of treatment, neurofeedback is also known as electroencephalogram (EEG) biofeedback therapy. It uses sensors on the scalp to measure EEG frequencies, offering real-time feedback (through video or sound) that rewards frequencies associated with relaxed attention, and suppresses frequencies associated with under- or over-arousal. The goal of this training is to develop skills for self-regulation of brain activity.
Medications for bipolar disorder are very problematic due to their side effects, compliance rates, and the consequences of taking them over a long period. They can cause a variety of troublesome or even dangerous side effects, including:
Sexual side effects
Feeling “flat and robotic”
The morning of August 16, 2005 expectations for my future and the future of my family met with the harshest of realities. My husband had disappeared and I didn’t know if he was ever coming back. Colored by the destructive forces of bi-polar mood disorder, Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere is the story of Allison and Grant Johnson and their search for love in spite of seemingly impossible odds. Their “against all odds attitude” and the heartfelt sharing of the battlefield that became their life will touch your heart, magnify your faith and intensify your belief in God and his miraculous works of healing and restoration. How did they survive, and perhaps even thrive, in spite of the invisible ogre that threatened them at every turn?
Allison Johnson is the author of "Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere: Finding my way in a Bi-Polar Marriage". She has also written several articles and a short story.
As an eighteen year old Allison fell in love with Jesus and has been chasing after him ever since. She is passionate about Christian women’s issues and created Resurrectedgirl.com; a writing, speaking and life coaching ministry aimed to the wounded hearts of women.
Allison and her husband make their home in San Antonio, Texas with their son, Zachary (12) and their daughter, Kayla (11), and of course their big yellow dog, Yukon.

"Hopping Roller Coasters" tells the story of author Rachel Pappas who was an in-your face mother, but loved her daughter more than life. "Mom doesn’t play around when the neighborhood bully’s taunting got way out of hand. She stood up to hard-nosed teachers who didn’t get that you don’t punish a child who’s flailing; Marina needed help. And she sat in the front row, clapping till her palms hurt when her half-Greek, half-Jewish daughter took the podium at her predominantly African American school—glowing in her cap, gown, and greased cornrows." No one was going to hurt Marina. No one. Except Rachel herself, diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a condition her daughter would struggle with too. This is the story of a mother and daughter’s journey, a two-decade-long roller coaster ride. Actually you’re hopping from one roller coaster to the next through this openly told story of unexpected turns and pure love. A story that’s both intense and quite funny at times as Rachel takes you on the journey of Marina's psychiatric hospitalizations, cutting and overdosing, while Rachel deals with her own demons and the diagnosis of cancer. This openly, honestly told story finally comes full circle leaving us with lessons on redefining success, mortality, loving, forgiving and being forgiven.
Anarchy; a misunderstood concept, associated with violence, chaos and disorder, a word which the corporatemedia manipulates to suit their agenda. “I call myself an anarchist. What I am saying that I recognize the evils of the world, I understand who is responsible for them, and I refuse to be complicit.” “It was not the anarchists who dropped nuclearbombs on innocent civilians,” “It was not the anarchists who invented the gulag. The anarchists were not responsible for the extermination of the Jews or of the killing fields. We did not enslave the Africans or intern the Japanese. It was not in protest of anarchist atrocities that drove monks to burn themselves alive.” We are told that without government, there will be blood on the streets. But the facts speak for themselves: throughout history, it is politicians who have sent civilians to die in wars they wanted no part of, forced humans to kill other humans. We’ve got it all wrong, argues Anarchris argues. “Government is chaos.” “These horrors were carried out by groups of elite who maintain that human beings must be controlled. It is the anarchist who sees this and says, I will not be complicit in your sins. When you come to these realizations, the question is not why choose anarchy, but why choose government?
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.
One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.
How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.
“I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.
A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

True healing begins with TLC. If you’re like me, life with a thyroid or autoimmune disorder has been a bumpy, discouraging ride. It can feel like no one is listening and that even your doctors don’t really get it. Sometimes you just want to give up. It doesn’t have to be this way. The many (many!) symptoms of thyroid, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases can be dramatically reduced or even eliminated by reconnecting to your body’s own healing ability. I know because I’ve done it and in this book, I show you how to jump start your healing so you can live the vibrant life you desire. If your experience of health care has been frustrating and impersonal, with rushed office visits, a trickle of information and an avalanche of prescriptions, then prepare yourself for something quite different. Complex problems need loving solutions. You can reverse or even eliminate thyroid, autoimmune and inflammatory dysfunction as I have done by using the powerful tools of self-love and self-care. In Healing Hashimoto’s Naturally, we delve into what healing is and how to do it. My holistic approach to healing means taking the time to know you, to address your unique mind, body and spirit to resolve disorders that many mistakenly consider “incurable.” I invite you to dive in to my story. I think you’ll see some of yourself amongst these pages.

Viki Winterton interviews Anne Redelfs!
Anne Redelfs is a retired psychiatrist who has been studying human beings for as long as she can remember. She has a bachelor’s degree from Duke University and a medical degree from Tulane University, where she completed two years of residency in pediatrics and three years in psychiatry at Tulane-affiliated hospitals. However, she considers life her greatest teacher. She passes on this instruction to others that they too might learn to listen to their lives.
In her book, The Awakening Storm, readers join Anne on her evacuation from her New Orleans home as Hurricane Katrina approaches and in the trauma of the ensuing levee disaster. In between story lines, they learn about post-traumatic stress disorder in layman's terms and the stunted psychological development that results from chronic, untreated traumatic experience. Most importantly, readers become practiced in helping to remedy these epidemic conditions - within themselves, within their relationships, and throughout society.
