When I studied Neuroscience in we were still being taught that neurons could not regenerate themselves. What this translates into is a basic belief that while most any part of the body that sustains injury can be expected to heal and recover, any damage to the brain was permanent and irreversible. In other words, if you break your mind, you will never again be “sane”.
Though many discoveries have been made since then that stands that notion on its head, most doctors still deeply believe the myth that any form of mental disorder is forever. This crazy belief has driven the creation of terrible inhuman institutions, treatment, and drugs that are essentially little more than attempts to sedate, contain, and “keep away from US” anyone manifesting a mental disorder. The paradigm is insidious.
Then, because we have so little understanding of what causes the brain to “break” in the first place, ordinary folks have a long held tendency to fear mental illness and the mentally ill. Of course, this vast generalized fear leads to all kinds of mistreatment and cruelty. Perhaps more importantly, it leads to a trust in a system of medicine that keeps the ill permanently in that state of suffering and illness.
I have discovered there is a cure. I have discovered a cure to every kind of mental illness. In fact I would go so far as to say that I have discovered that there is NO ILLNESS of the brain or mind. Each state that we so carefully pick apart, categorize and name with our DSM-5′s, then maintain with our vast array of psych meds, is actually a useful process or an important function in the brain. Most mental illness is actually a transition into better brain function. But, fearing the worst, we shut it down. We rarely see the other side, the side where brain function blooms magnificently before our very eyes.
The brain is easily the most perfect of all organs. It never stops healing itself. It never stops growing. It has no limits. Babies are born with all the knowledge of the ages in their little heads. As they learn and grow their tiny brains eliminate neurons that are not stimulated in their everyday life. That’s right, babies learn to dumb down their brains to better function in the home in which they find themselves. Babies are dumbing down their vast remarkable brains to better deal with us and our world. Nice.
But the Very Cool Thing is that vast array of neurons, knowledge and performance ability is not lost. Nothing is lost. Our DNA remembers each pathway we came in with and, given the right stimulus, can and will re-grow.
True, the regrowth process is daunting. Imagine, if you will, that you a store and see signs stating “pardon our progress”. You see hung everywhere, dust, drywall, tools. You hear the grind and buzz of power tools and have to brush past busy workmen. Some of us would want to turn around and go someplace else. Well, imagine that store is a person’s brain. That person cannot leave and go to another store. That person must find a way to run his life working around and through the frustrating, slow and sometimes inadequate brain filled with new construction, dust flying, plastic drapes, and the buzz of tools. This is the dynamic state that we see and call “illness”. There is no illness, there is only a transition through a period of deconstruction and recreation. Then, if we are patient, gentle, and kind, there are remarkable new abilities and ways of functioning never before dreamed of.
Isn’t it funny that the highly motivated graduate students particularly in sciences have such a high rate of mental “breakdowns” and suicide. No. Not really, when you stimulate brain growth enough, the brain begins to grow by leaps and bounds. Once it has exhausted its present capacity, the brain is spurred to grow physically. It begins that remarkable growth by literally breaking down neuronic pathways. Unfortunately, that student only has the one brain to work with and will feel rather incapacitated with all that dust flying and staircases leading to nowhere. But treated correctly, the process can be completed in only THREE DAYS.
Now, I expect it will be many years before all the double-blind placebo controlled, AMA approved, insurance certified tests have been done and published to give the go-ahead to believing in and treating the brain (and patients) with the respect they deserve. Until then, you do have an option. I am presently treating and CURING a vast array of mental “illness” and “disorders”.
If you or anyone you know has had a mental breakdown of any kind, ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, IBS, or any undiagnosed state of mind that reduces function, I can help. Call me…504-312-3097
