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”
SPECIAL GUEST: Nanci Schiman, MSW, CAPSW is the Program Manager for the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation (www.bpkids.org). She coordinates all of the on line support programming for families raising children, teens or young adults with bipolar disorder, depression or related disorders. In addition she is responsible for the team of volunteers who answer emails for BringChange2Mind (www.bringchange2mind.org), the anti stigma campaign founded by actress Glenn Close.
Nanci has three teenage daughters, the oldest and youngest whom have bipolar disorder and were diagnosed at 9 and 10 respectively. Her personal and professional experiences have given her extensive knowledge and understanding of mood disorders, treatments, parenting strategies, resources and the challenges and barriers that can limit access to care.
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.

Could you manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, or bi-polar disorder after a disaster? You probably know someone close to you with one of the conditions listed above, because a significant percentage of Americans are on anti-psychotic prescriptions. These drugs are linked to dangerous side effects, like thoughts of suicide, hallucinations, and violent behavior.
Join me for the next episode of Herbal Prepper Live this Sunday, August 3, 2014 at 7pm E/4pm P for a discussion on viable alternatives for mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, and bi-polar disorder, in a post-collapse world where pharmaceuticals are not an option.

Catastrophizing is an irrational thought a lot of us have in believing that something is far worse than it actually is. Catastrophizing can generally can take two forms. The first of these is making a catastrophe out of a situation. This kind of Catastrophizing takes a current situation and gives it a truly negative spin. The second kind of Catastrophizing is closely linked to the first, but it is more mental and more future oriented.This kind of Catastrophizing occurs when we look to the future and anticipate all the things that are going to go wrong.
