The video is about you, it’s about your family, and it’s about your friends. Psychiatric treatment is all too common these days. Yes, sometimes it may be necessary. At the same time, the big pharmaceutical companies are pushing their products as a solution for just about anything. They are even going so far as to “create” illnesses to justify (unnecessary) treatment. Fortunately, there are alternatives to pharmaceuticals.
The following video is a great introduction to what is occurring in our culture. It’s packed full of quotes and research from credible doctors, scientists, and activists.
There are actually 11 YouTube videos in this series, all of which you can find here. We posted the first video here for you to see. I highly recommend taking the time to view all the videos.
Whether it’s depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, or an inability to concentrate, I really believe there are usually alternatives to psychiatric treatment. Creating a balanced life, with healthy habits, usually works for most people. Consider the following 6 strategies as an alternative:
Regular exercise: A good 7 hours of cardiovascular exercise/weight training a week is sufficient for most people. Exercise gets the blood going, flushes out harmful toxins, and keeps the mind healthy and active. I’ve seen numerous studies which indicate that people who regularly exercise do not get depressed or have anxiety attacks as much – if at all! Exercise does not have to be undesirable.
Find something that you enjoy whether it’s bike riding, hiking, swimming, roller-blading, or even brisk walking at the mall.
Healthy Diet: The average American diet starts with sugar and ends with fat. We are in an overfed, yet undernourished culture of people. Most of the food in stores and restaurants isn’t healthy; it’s full of toxins, and affects how your brain operates. It also lacks the nutrients our body needs compared to the food that was available 20 years ago.
Consider a diet with more whole grains (no enriched, bleached, or grain products full of sugar – look at the ingredients).
Consider meats that don’t have antibiotics or hormones, and if you can afford it, try to get organic meat when you can. Especially if you drink milk, buy it organic. Non-organic milk is full of chemicals and puss, all from the unhealthy methods used to raise non-organic cattle.
Try to get as many locally grown, organic vegetables as possible. This will make a radical difference in your health compared to if you consume the conventional, chemical laden, decaying, nutrient deficient varieties you will find in most stores. Harvard university researchers recommend nine servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day to keep the body healthy!
Get on a regimen of good, pharmaceutical grade supplements, such as cracked cell chlorella, chromium, major vitamins (A, E, B, B-12, C, D, etc), fish oil, resveratrol, and a good calcium/magnesium combination. In one of my favorite bestselling books, you can see more about nutrition as an alternative to pharmaceutical treatment: Nutritional Healing
If you, or someone you care about, seem to have abnormal psychological issues, consider getting a good allergy food test conducted by a credible doctor or nutritionist. This is oftentimes the cause of many mental/emotional conditions.
Make Your Life More Of A Life Worth Living: Are you in a toxic romantic relationship? Do you dread going to your job every day? Do you lack activities in your life that are exciting, rewarding, and inspiring? Take steps to create a better life for yourself. Clean out the garbage and design your life where you look forward to waking up every day and living your life to the fullest. If you struggle with how to do this, consider a Intuitive Counseling session with me. I have helped thousands of people work through these issues for many years.
Be Socially Active:Take steps to build relationships with people who are ambitious and intelligent; people who possess a sense of humor and a positive attitude about life. But most of all, communicate with individuals who are truly compassionate and caring. Living as a recluse is unhealthy and can be a sure path to mental/emotional issues.
Get Involved In Activities Which Require Compassion:It’s nice to enjoy the self-absorbed pleasures in life, at the same time, true living is about doing something to make a difference in the world – it’s about improving the lives of others. Whether your passion is to alleviate hunger, fight for human rights, clean up the environment, or some other endeavor, take steps to get out there and make a difference.
Ironically, helping others is one of the greatest and most rewarding things you can do for your own healing and peace of mind. Remember the saying “It is better to give than to receive.”
Meditation And Personal Development:There is so much research available that proves meditation and personal growth training is a viable solution to mental and emotional challenges. As an alternative to pharmaceutical treatment, working on your mind in this way will give you the same benefits, without all of the unnecessary side-effects (internal organ damage, hearing loss, suicidal tendencies, numbness of emotion, shorter life expectancy, etc).
Even the insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield, conducted a study in the 1980s which proved that people that meditate stay out of the hospital 80% more for clinical depression than people who do not. This observation is the tip of the iceberg. It doesn’t even mention the studies that also proved similar results with regards to age regression, improvement in relationships, increasing life expectancy, healing cancer, and more.
