A Fresh Look at Psychiatry, The Mind/Body/Gut/Heart Connection, Depression and The EGO
Since the conventional approach to treating all mental and physical disease with pharmaceutical drugs is obviously and statistically failing and counterproductive; try applying some basic settled science. Life undeniably operates on creative energy in the form of metabolically produced ATP electrons and electron-rich antioxidants, the electrons that bind complex bio-molecules together….acidic oxidative stress being the countervailing destructive force resulting from inadequate nutrition, environmental toxins, a dysfunctional gut-heart-brain axis, chronic infection and emotional stress that oxidize and burn-down living structures. Correcting these 5 conditions along with the withering effect of time is The Key to health and healing, a major break from the pharmaceutical paradigm that constitutes redox medicine. A mind can’t be healthy in a low voltage body,…and a body cannot remain healthy ruled by acidic emotions. Cells must operate on 45 millivolts, the brain and heart over 100 millivolts equating to a slightly alkaline pH of 7.45; lower voltages and pH indicate dysfunction.
Improving nutrition, probiotic populations and detoxification protocols are straightforward, yet emotional stress as a function of an invisible ego can be countered by maturity, logic and the application of “spiritual” principles. Prevention is best.
We come into this world wide-eyed and innocent…we are given a name and begin obedience training…and so we become the ego; our self-conscious self-image. Since we know nothing at a young age we respond to praise and comply with “rules” to avoid punishment and learn to lie. We are confounded when we learn of the inevitability of death. Parents, teachers and other kids react to our appearance and behaviors and judge our personalities. Self esteem is shaped by this social environment and we take on the personas we construct based on the arbitrary opinions of others. Some learn to transcend attacks on their ego and ignore cultural narratives, while most remain in an ego-locked hell all their lives. Purple hair, tatoos, graffiti, joining odd groups, plastic surgery, etc. are cries for identity and even more separation from the faceless throng. Pssst…The media and peer police are “people whisperers” demanding “calm-submissive behavior,”….training the masses like Caesar Millan trains disobedient dogs.
***Recent studies on the use of psychedelics like psilocybin to eliminate depression agree on at least one point; they allow the patient to transcend and dominate the EGO! Beyond the imperative of improving physical chemistry and body charge terrain, coming to grips with our egos is essential to physical health and personal evolution into states of higher consciousness, vibrant health and ultimately…bliss and enlightenment. This has been the underlying message of prophets and gurus throughout human history; Jesus, Buddha, Kabbalists, Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden and yes,.. George Carlin. You can learn from them, but must complete your journey alone.
Governments allied with religions have always maintained their power by crippling individual will and
