As a therapist,I have clients ask about natural methods for mental health.
The first recorded nutritional experiment is in the Bible in the Book of Daniel. As the story goes, the king of Babylon captured Daniel and his friends during an invasion of Israel. When the king invited them to eat his rich foods and wine, Daniel and his friends declined. They explained that they preferred vegetables, beans and water in accordance with their Jewish dietary restrictions. The king agreed to allow them their diet on a trial basis. Daniel and his friends ate their diet for 10 days. Afterward, the king compared their health to that of his men who had been on the richer diet of heavy meats and wine. The king concluded that Daniel and his friends appeared healthier and were allowed to continue with their diet.
Over the course of time, scientists have continually investigated the effect diet and nutrition have on well-being. By the 20th century, scientists had used nutrition in the treatment of every...
More and more clients are requesting recommendations and referrals from psychotherapistfor complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). These therapies, which range from nutrition to body work, are often done in conjunction medication, rather than as a replacement.
Harvard University researchers and psychologists found that more than half of those reporting anxiety attacks or severe depression used a form of alternative treatment such as herbal remedies, special diets or acupuncture in the past year, while only one-third visited a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker or physician. With the exception of chronic back or neck pain, depression and anxiety were the conditions that most frequently led people to try alternative treatments, according to researchers.
People with anxiety or depression who are attracted to alternative therapies tend to like self-administered strategies. About 20 percent of the respondents in the Harvard study who used alternative treatments reported visit...
In developing countries, up to 80% of indigenous populations rely on herbs for primary health care needs. In France and Germany, 30 to 40% of all medical doctors -- including psychiatrist -- rely on herbal preparations as their primary medicines in mental health counseling. German physicians, for example, frequently prescribe ginkgo, hawthorn, St. John's wort, horse-chestnut, saw palmetto, echinacea, valerian, ginger, garlic, and cranberry.
In Europe, herbs and herbal products are regulated in a different manner than in the United States. In 1978, the German Federal Health Agency established the German Commission E to investigate the safety and efficacy of herbal remedies.The commission studied evidence from literature, anecdotal reports, and clinical studies. In response, they developed monographs on over 400 herbs. These writings are now used worldwide as essential references on herbal therapy. The commission also established indications of how an herb is used medicinally and dosage...
According to researchers, anxious children are more likely to be submissive and therefore their worries tend to be overlooked. As such, parents should be attentive to their kids’ worries, create a list of their worries, observe their kids’ behavior in social situations; i.e. parties, pool, play grounds, and understand their kids’ anxiety rather than ignoring it and/or assuming their worries will go away as they grow older.
If you see that your child is avoiding activities and performances, is constantly concerned about negative thoughts such as losing a parent or a loved one, or is preoccupied with checking, tapping, and washing, it is time for your child to deal with his/her anxiety in a healthier way...

11:30 PM. Off to bed. Tonight I am going to sleep. I have to. I am just so tired. How will I get all that work done tomorrow if I don't sleep? How can I explain it to people? They will think I am so crazy, never sleeping well. And if I can't work, how can I pay my mortgage? What will I do? I am such a failure! I cannot do anything right...
12:30 AM. Oh no, I am still awake. Who is that talking in my head? Why can I not shut off that voice that keeps worrying and worrying? It is driving me up a wall. TV fix..quick, watch a comedy, that will help.
1:00 AM. OK now I should be able to sleep. I drank some hot milk, relaxed. I will try some deep breathing like the doctor said.
2:30 AM. Was I sleeping? Was that a dream? But I am awake now and my shoulder hurts me. I am so stupid, why can't I sleep? What is wrong with me? I will never sleep. I cannot survive without sleep. My whole body is tingling, my mind is racing, my heart is beating so fast, I cannot breathe. I must be having a ...
Cali is set to kick off her private island retreat this month down in the Bahamas. The Addictions Coach has teamed up with the anonymous property owner in the beautifully secluded outer islands and has put together an ALLSTAR team to work one on one with the program’s clients. This scenario works perfect for the person who is serious about his or her recovery and there is no better place on earth to lay the foundation of a personalized “treatment plan” than this gorgeous stretch of secluded beach. Once on the island the client will be shuttled to the property where you instantly feel at peace in the personalized “resort like” bungalow cabins. The closest neighbor to the North is 7 miles and the closest to the South is 12 miles. The main house is a beautiful 2 story home with a dining room, living/entertainment room, and a large commercial kitchen where a personal chef will prepare all of the clients meals. The outer grounds consist of fire pits, hanging ham...
