NATURAL TREATMENTS

Cure for alcoholism, anxiety & depression, Joan Mathews Larson - 2 of 3 - Talk Therapy Doesn’t Work

Drug and alcohol problems are the result of biochemical glitches. They are not caused by a lack of will power and cannot be solved with talk therapy. Prescription drugs such as Prozac cannot correct these problems either. I believe the exact same thing is true for anxiety and depression.

In this audio clip, you will hear Dr. Julian Whitaker describe the research of American biochemist, Dr. Roger Williams.

He found that "alcoholic" rats could be cured of their desire for alcohol with large doses of nutrients.

You will then hear Dr. Whitaker interview Joan Mathews Larson, PhD whose son committed suicide about 30 years ago after returning from talk therapy.

Dr. Larson committed her life to finding a better way, and came across the research of Dr. Roger Williams.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS

The FDA says unpublished drug trials are unpublished because they were flawed, but Britain disagrees

"The FDA would say that some of these unpublished studies [of antidepressants] were unpublished because there were flaws in the way that the trials were conducted," 60-Minutes correspondent, Lesley Stahl said on the television show "60 MInutes" on Sunday, February 19, 2012 (11.5-minutes into the video) to Dr. Tim Kendall, a practicing psychiatrist and Joint Director of the National Collaboration Centre for Mental Health who reviewed both published and unpublished studies of antidepressants for Great Britain's National Health Service.


"This is a multi-billion-dollar industry. I doubt that they are spending $10 million per trial to come up with a poor methodology. What characterizes the unpublished [trials] is that they are negative. Now, I don't think it's that their method is somehow wrong, it's that their outcome is not suitable from the company's point of view," Dr. Kendall stated.


"Because of the review, new public health guidelines were issued," Lesley Stahl noted.


"Now, drugs are only given to the severely depressed as first-line treatment."


"For those with mild to moderate depression, the British government is spending nearly half-a-billion dollars training an army of talk therapists."

THYROID & MITOCHONDRIA

Hypothyroidism reduces mitochondria; involved in congestive heart failure, Alzheimers, etc, Dr Starr

Hypothyroidism reduces the number and activity of mitochondria, the energy-producing cells, notes Mark Starr, MD, author of the wonderful book Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic.

Mitochondria make up one-third of the weight of the heart muscle, Dr. Starr notes in this short audio clip from a speech he gave in 2007 at an Orthomolecular Conference.

This appears to the connection as to how hypothyroidism can cause some forms of congestive heart failure where the heart muscle is too weak to pump enough blood to the rest of the body (cardiomyopathy). It's an energy problem.

Dr. Starr's book contains the wonderful "Before" and "After" pictures showing X-rays of enlarge hearts that shrink back to normal size after the patient is given natural desiccated thyroid.

A decrease in mitochondria also appears to be the connection of hypothyroidism to Alzheimer's, which Dr. Starr noted in another audio clip. Again, it's an energy problem. Read the entire article | Email this article

But she also warns people not to go home and throw their drugs out or they will end up in the hospital because you will experience drug withdrawal, so it needs to be done carefully. Read the entire article | Email this article

Traditional psychiatrists will often tell you that that you are having "rebound anxiety" or "rebound depression" or "rebound psychosis", and that you need to take these drugs forever and will never be normal without them, but this is not true Gwen notes.

The withdrawal, according to Gwen, is your body trying to detoxify from these drugs. Read the entire article | Email this article

DEPRESSION

Evening Primrose Oil is a powerful antidepressant for some, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD

Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) found in Evening Primrose Oil is converted in the body into a powerful antidepressant called Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) as noted in this video of a speech given by Joan Mathews Larson, PhD.

She notes that even though Borage Oil seems like a cheaper source of GLA, Evening Primrose Oil is much better than Borage Oil because it is taken up by the brain much better than Borage Oil.

Dr. Larson gives a "loading dose" of one capsule with each meal in other words, 3 capsules per day and then backs off to 1-2 capsules per day according to an email I got from her office.

I've been taking Evening Primrose Oil for the past few months and I do like the effects.

I started off with 3 capsules per day each containing 1300 mg of Evening Primrose Oil.

I noticed lots of energy immediately.

But then after several days I felt a little anxious and had a little trouble sleeping, so I stopped for a couple days, then started with 1 capsule.

And after a couple of weeks, I increased it to 2 capsules per day and I feel great.

My muscles also feel better when I exercise.

Here is a video clip of Joan Mathews Larson, PhD speaking at a conference in San Francisco in Sept 2007.

For 30 years, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD has been treating addiction, anxiety and depression with natural supplements in order to correct the underlying biochemical problems which cause these conditions.
