Got "Broken Brain"?


One of the hallmarks with anxiety is a total disconnect
between the emotional part of the brain and the logical
part of the brain.
October 27, 2018 - Cell Phones Zapp Your Brain! -
"... There are over two hundred million cell phones in the U.S.,
which means almost everyone has one (except me). ... It was
in 1984 that cell phone technology began to transition from
military to civilian use. At the time, no testing was done. So,
what could go wrong? Nothing, according to the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). Everything is fine.
When you look a little closer at the details, however, there is
reason to believe something did go wrong and the FCC might
be fibbing. Why would the FCC misinform us? Perhaps that
big fat revolving door between the FCC and the telecom
industry is the answer.
As is usually the case, the results of industry studies differ
greatly from independent studies. If you think the industry is
as pure as the driven snow, then you have nothing to worry
about. If you think billions of dollars might motivate somebody
to bend the truth a little, you might want to take a look at the
independent studies. They suggest there are problems not
just with cell phones specifically, but with wireless radiation in
general. Cell phone producers know this and actually say in
the directions or paperwork that come with the phone that you
should not put the phone directly against your skin. They also
know that nobody reads the directions, and everybody puts
the phone against their skin.
2

The industry will say that they have found no evidence of


harm from wireless radiation. That may be true. It is also true
that you won’t find something if you are very careful not to
look for it.
Apparently, a lot of women like to keep their phones in their
bras. The Generation Zapped video shows us Donna, who
developed five tumors on her breast marking the exact
location where she carried her cell phone. That is one of very
many examples that some might find suspicious. I’m sure the
FCC would have much to say about what an unfortunate
coincidence that is.
Other 'coincidences' include deformed sperm, sleep
disruption, bad memory, lack of mental focus and impaired
brain development in children. ..."[13]

Psychiatric Drugs Zapp Your Brain! -
"Simple Truths About Psychiatry: Psychiatric Drugs Are More
Dangerous Than You Ever Imagined", By: Dr. Peter Breggin,
MD -
"Dr. Peter Breggin is another voice in the growing chorus of
people warning us about what prescription drugs really do. He
goes through the various categories of drugs. Stimulants
cause brain shrinkage, increased suicide rates, cocaine
abuse and criminal behavior. Sedatives like Ambien shorten
life span. Zanax and Valium are very addictive. 'Antipsychotic'
drugs wreck the basal ganglia and also shorten life span. If
you want to shorten your life span, you have many options.
3

Doctors continue to prescribe these drugs. How did this


situation start, and why does it continue? As Dr. Breggin
points out, doctors only know what the pharmaceutical
industry tells them. He also warns that you need competent
professional supervision to stop taking these drugs or the side
effects could be worse than your original condition. These
drugs are also a common denominator in the epidemic of
behavior problems and waves of violence in schools. If
everyone knew about this, things could be much better, but
don’t wait for any big news flashes from pharmaceutical-
controlled mainstream media. ..."[14]

October 23, 2018 - Healthy Gut, Healthy Brain - An Event in
San Diego -
"In his groundbreaking book, Grain Brain, David Perlmutter,
MD, revealed that the fate of your brain is not in your genes,
4

but rather in the food that you eat. Over the past five years,
amazing research has uncovered much about the relationship
between what we eat and its impact on a wide variety of
health conditions.
Brain health is directly linked to what goes on in the gut. The
microbiome affects mood, libido, clarity of thought, and often
one’s perception of the world. A dysfunctional microbiome
could be at the root of headaches, anxiety, inability to
concentrate, or even a negative outlook on life.
Put simply, nearly everything about health—how we feel
physically, cognitively, and emotionally—can hinge on the
state of the micro biome."[12]

September 24, 2018 -
"... here is the wrap-up of last Monday's edition of the Dr.
Carolyn Dean Live radio show.
The brain is electromagnetic like the heart. We measure the
electrical activity of the heart with EKG's and the brain with
EEG's. Magnesium makes muscles and nerves work properly,
allowing calcium to enter cells and cause muscle contraction
or nerve firing and then pushing calcium out of the cells to
allow the relaxation phase. But if there is not enough
magnesium to get rid of the calcium the cell can keep firing
and be "excited to death." Brain trauma of any kind will cause
a release of calcium and if there isn't enough magnesium to
pull the calcium out of the cells, there is cell death. Studies of
animal and human brain trauma victims suggest that higher
5

magnesium levels are associated with a better recovery. Also,


giving sufficient magnesium will create a better healing
outcome. Intravenous magnesium sulfate significantly
reduces brain edema following brain injury and is used to treat
patients with severe TBI without adverse effects. This is
crucial information to give your doctor if your child suffers a
head injury or any family member is involved in a motor

"Many factors in the environment are new to the genome
since World War II and have been implicated in violent
behavior. These include changes and additions to the food we
eat leading to severe nutrient deficiencies, changes in
American agriculture and fertility of the soils, more chemicals
in the environment, cheaper goods and services, heavy use of
personal care and building materials that contain lethal toxins,
changes in the American family, vaccination programs and

August 28, 2018 - Magnesium Is Probably The Leading
Mineral For The Brain and Most People Are Deficient! -
Dr. Carolyn Dean reports:
Increasing magnesium intake may be a valid strategy to
enhance cognitive abilities. This comes on the heels of much
research and speculation that inadequate levels of
magnesium could impair cognitive function, leading to faster
deterioration of memory in aging humans.
In fact, because of the implications of magnesium deficiency, I
thoroughly researched and provided over 600 medical and
scientific references in the newest edition of The Magnesium
Miracle, 2017 Edition, many of which refer directly to the
function of the central nervous system!
The following excerpts citing magnesium's role in the brain
function and cognition is taken from The Magnesium Miracle,
2017 Edition:
* Stroke: The U.S. population, deficient in magnesium, is at
greater risk for stroke with severe post-stroke complications.
There can be poor recovery from head injury and escalating
neurological damage. Lack of magnesium can enhance
9

neurotoxin damage from vast numbers of chemicals in our air,


food, and water.
* Brain Trauma: Higher magnesium levels are associated with
a better recovery, and giving magnesium will create a better
healing outcome. IV magnesium sulfate significantly reduces
brain edema following brain injury and is used to treat patients
with severe TBI without adverse effects. This is crucial
information to give your doctor if your child suffers a head
injury or any family member is involved in a motor vehicle
accident. Good Neurosurgeons give IV magnesium to all their
surgical patients.
* Diuretics Dry Out The Brain: A journal case study reported
that an elderly woman's Serum Magnesium level became
depleted due to a diuretic she was taking for hypertension.
She was admitted to the hospital with severe weakness and
developed an overt psychosis with paranoid delusions.
Following large intravenous doses of magnesium, her
symptoms disappeared within twenty-four hours. However,
her symptoms returned as long as she was taking the diuretic.
People who are prescribed diuretics should check with their
doctor about taking at least 600 mg a day of supplemental
magnesium in divided doses. In that way, many of the side
effects of diuretics can be avoided.
* Aging: French magnesium researcher Dr. Pierre Delbet, who
practiced in the early 1900s, was convinced that the aging
body's tissues have three times more calcium than
magnesium. He knew that calcium precipitates out into
tissues that are deficient in magnesium. He observed the
toxicity of excess calcium in the testicles, brain, and other
10

tissues and concluded almost a century ago that magnesium


deficiency plays a role in senility.
* Memory: Research at MIT, however, produced a study in
2004 that elevates magnesium to the position of memory
enhancer. Particular brain receptors important for learning and
memory depend on magnesium for their regulation. The
researchers describe magnesium as an absolutely necessary
component of the cerebrospinal fluid in order to keep these
learning and memory receptors active. The term they use for
this activity, interactivity, and changeability is plasticity.
* Fear: MIT researcher found that "As predicted by our theory,
increasing the concentration of magnesium and reducing the
background level of noise led to the largest increases of
plasticity ever reported in scientific literature." In English, that
statement simply means that magnesium reduces the
physical reaction to fear, which can only be a good thing!
* Treating Telomeres: A telomere is an essential part of
chromosomes that affect how our cells age. Telomeres are
the caps at the ends of chromosomes that protect them from
unraveling or getting attached to another chromosome. The
current research on aging is firmly tied up with telomeres. It
should come as no surprise that magnesium is tightly
wrapped up with telomeres. But the real shock is how few
researchers are focusing on the miracle of magnesium in
keeping telomeres from unraveling. Instead, they are looking
for drugs or formulating expensive supplements to save the
telomeres – ignoring the solution that's right before their eyes.
* Alzheimer's & Parkinson's: There is evidence that
magnesium deficiency can trigger or worsen Alzheimer's
disease and Parkinson's disease. These conditions are the
11

neurological equivalent of heart disease. After all, both heart


and brain are excitable tissues that give off electrical energy,
and both must have magnesium.
In spite of all these potential outcomes, boosting your brain
power can be simple! You can supplement your dietary intake
of magnesium and other beneficial minerals such as zinc with
our very own ReMag Magnesium Solution, a 60,000 ppm
concentration of 99.99% pure elemental magnesium and
ReMyte, our very same mineral product, both designed to slip
right into the mineral channels of your cells and saturate your
entire body, mind and spirit with magnesium and mineral
delight![10]

November 25, 2018 - Head Injury & Magnesium -
A recent Medscape article reported that “Head Injury Tied to
Long- term Cognitive Decline, Dementia Risk”. A quarter of
the 13,000 head injury victims in the study experienced long-
term cognitive decline and a greater risk for dementia over the
20 years of follow up. One researcher said that the increased
decline for those with head injury is equivalent to aging them
by 4 years.
Head injury is known to be associated with short-term
cognitive but research on the longer-term cognitive effects
has been lacking. So, now we know. But the big question is
what is medicine going to do about it. As with most studies it’s
“just the facts” and no indication about how to prevent or even
teat the problem.
12

I wrote about head injury and magnesium in The Magnesium


Miracle (2017) and I think this information is important.
A second study noted an incredibly high frequency of even
mild head injury in the US that is associated with steep
cognitive decline with approximately 23 million US adults 40
years of age or older reporting a head injury with loss of
consciousness.
Head Injury And Magnesium
From animal studies, we know that brain magnesium levels
fall dramati cally at the site of a head injury, as this mineral is
depleted in a nonstop cascade of acute events.4
In sixty-six human subjects with acute blunt head trauma, the
greater the degree of injury, the greater the calcium-ion-to-
magnesium-ion ratio. More calcium than magnesium in brain
neurons is never a good thing—excess calcium causes
ceaseless neuron stimulation, leading to cell death.
Measuring magnesium ion levels in the blood after TBI can be
of both diagnostic and prognostic value in treating brain injury.
5 Studies of animal and human brain trauma victims indicate
that higher magnesium levels are associated with a better
recovery.6 Also, giving sufficient magnesium will create a
better healing outcome. Intravenous magne sium sulfate
significantly reduces brain edema following brain injury and is
used without adverse effects to treat pa tients with severe
TBI.7 This is crucial information to give your doctor if your
child suffers a head injury or any family member is involved in
a motor vehicle accident.
13

Ionized magnesium testing, used in research studies, makes


the diagnosis of posttraumatic headaches much eas ier.
Abnormalities in magnesium ion concentration and the
calcium-ion-to- magnesium-ion ratio were found in children
with posttraumatic headaches even though serum magne
sium levels were normal.8 Obviously, studies using only the
serum magnesium test would miss the diagnosis and doctors
would fail to properly treat these patients.
Magnesium depletion created by a head injury is slow to
reverse. According to neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock,
magnesium takes thirty minutes to get into the spinal fluid,
three hours to reach the cortical area directly under the skull,
and a full four to six hours for sufficient amounts of
magnesium to reach the deep brain tissues.9
You get the point, magnesium, especially in the form of
ReMag, is important for anyone who has suffered a head
injury, whether acute or chronic. Here’s what one of our
customers recently related about her Completement Formulas
keeping her from having any sequelae from a head injury.
“I missed a step and fell at a gas station – hit the cement on
the right side of my forehead. A friend drove me to the ER as
my bump was the size of a jumbo egg. The ER doctor did a
scan. I had a hematoma and a concussion but no internal
bleeding or fracture. 10 days later, my GP was amazed that
the area was healed with no discoloration nor a black eye.
She asked if I had a headache: No. Dizziness? No. Nausea?
No. Fuzzy thinking? No. She concluded that I healed much
better than her patients in their 20s and 30s. Their problems
last longer, for weeks and months. That’s because I take
14

ReMag, ReMyte and RnA ReSet Drops and bathe my brain in


good fats from a Keto diet.”

Unfortunately magnesium is not introduced into modern


trauma treatment because doctors never learned about it in
medical school. However, if you or a family member has
suffered at TBI please inform your doctor of the need for
magnesium. Take them my book. And show them Chapter 5:
“The CNS, Stroke, Brain Injury, Brain Surgery”. Or you can
download the free eBook Magnesium In The Central Nervous
System and print out Chapter 12: “The Role of Magnesium in
Traumatic CNS Injury.”

March 10, 2018 - The Significance of MSM and DMSO -

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring sulfur


compound in your body that's well known for supporting your
joints, but it's also useful in other areas of your body. ...
Perhaps the best way you know if you don't have enough
MSM in your system is by symptoms that may include fatigue,
prevalence in experiencing high stress, physically and
psychologically, depression and even degenerative diseases,
such as Parkinson's disease, arteriosclerosis, osteoarthritis
and cancer.
MSM metabolizes dimethyl sulfoxide, a controversial anti-
inflammatory and analgesic compound known as DMSO,
which, unfortunately, is approved for use in veterinary
medicine only, not in humans. ...
16

One article discusses Dr. Stanley Jacob's research on DMSO


and its benefits in many applications, including the treatment
of head trauma. According to Jacob, its ability as a free-
radical scavenger and diuretic is part of the key to improving
the blood supply to the brain, which reduces swelling:
"This improves blood oxygenation to brain tissue. Injured
brain cells often aren't dead. When these cells get increased
blood supply and more oxygen, and when the free radicals
are scavenged, dying cells can recover, and brain swelling is
reduced very rapidly."[6]
-
DMSO's diuretic benefit is especially to be noted for both
brain injuries and during the healing crisis that occurs at the
crossing from conflict active into a cardiological healing stage.
Following is Q&A with Dr. Hamer, founder of German New
Medicine, regarding this healing crisis:
Question - What happens when a biological conflict has been
solved?
When a biological conflict has been solved we can see very
clear symptoms, on the psychic level, the brain level and on
the organ level. On the psychic and vegetative level, we see
that the patient is no longer dwelling on the conflict content.
Hands suddenly get warm again, appetite improves, weight
normalizes and the patient sleeps better. There may also be
fatigue and weakness and a need to rest. This is in no way
the beginning of the end, but it's a very positive sign. This
healing phase varies in duration, depending on the duration of
the prior conflict. At the height of the healing phase, when the
17

body retains a lot of water, we see the epileptic or epileptoid


crisis, which shows a different symptom for every disease.
After the epileptic-epileptoid crisis, the body expels water from
the edema (infiltration of tissues with water) and slowly
returns to normality and the patient feels his strength
returning. ...This epileptic or epileptoid crisis, triggered by the
brain, marks the high point of the edema and, respectively,
the turning point to normality. In the second half of the healing
phase, the brain's harmless connective tissue, the glia, fills ...
to repair it. This really harmless connective tissue, which we
can colour white on the CT scan with an iodine contrast
substance, was previously mistaken as a brain tumor and
operated on. Since the brain cells themselves CANNOT
multiply after birth, REAL brain tumors cannot exist.
... the epileptic crisis appears on the corresponding two levels
as well as on the organ level (psyche, brain and organ).
Question - Can you describe such an epileptic crisis? -
The epileptic crisis is something Mother Nature devised a
billion years ago. It runs on all three levels at the same time. It
happens at the height of the healing phase, its purpose being
to normalize again. What we usually call an epileptic cramp-
spasm with muscle cramps is only one form of the epileptic
crisis, namely, after resolving a motoric conflict.
Epileptoid crises occur in every disease but with some
variations in each. Mother Nature created quite a trick for this
meaningful event. In the middle of the healing phase, the
patient experiences a recurrence of the physiological conflict,
which means the patient experiences his/her conflict for a
short time (stress phase) all over again including cold hands,
18

centralized cold sweat and all the symptoms of the conflict


active phase. This happens so that the brain edema gets
suppressed and the fluid eliminated from it and the patient
can return to normal.
After the epileptic crisis, the patient will warm up and then
experience the first small urinary phase. From this epileptic
crisis on, the patient is on the road to normality. In other
words, if the patient can get past this crisis, a further
complicated or serious crisis is unlikely. The second urinary
phase occurs at the end of the healing phase when the body
eliminates a mass of urine which is the rest of the edema. The
danger point lies just before the end of the epileptic-epileptoid
crisis when it will become evident whether or not the epileptic
crisis was enough to steer the regulator or controller (in the
brain) around. The best-known epileptic crisis is the heart
infarct. The epileptoid crisis is a lung embolism, hepatitis crisis
or pneumonia crisis.
To assist the body in making the necessary changes,
especially in conflicts of long duration, a strong cortisone
injection is sometimes necessary. In very difficult cases, the
cortisone may be given sooner. [7]
-
Comment: I’m interested in researching whether MSM can be
substituted for the cortisone.

Hamer Brain Focus -

If we experience an overwhelming stress (ex: “Mr., your son is
dead”), this is similar emotionally to a large power surge on
the electrical transmission line caused by lightning. At the
19

moment of high voltage, the appropriate circuit breaker


switches “off”. If there is no circuit breaker greater destruction
is assured; in the case of the brain, a larger part of the brain
may be damaged. With this “breaker procedure” the brain
isolates the conflict in a smaller area: a Hamer Brain Focus.
Most diseases are linked to emotional conflicts. The Hamer
Brain Focus (neuronal center) in the brain is targeted at the
moment of the emotional shock and it modifies the function of
the related organ (in correspondence with the disease).
The Hamer Brain Focus concentrates all of the psychological
conflict into an area which occupies about 1% of the brain.
This Hamer Brain Focus controls and causes disease in the
targeted organ.
Becoming sufficiently aware of the unconscious programming,
the brain releases the old emotions and replaces the old
programming thus resolving the disease. Current evidence
suggests that this equates to awareness at the cellular level
as well, which then resolves the disease.[8]

January 22, 2018 - Initial Post -
For the past several days I've been watching some of a
documentary titled: "Broken Brain"[1] that has greatly
captured my interest - primarily because of the tremendous
extent which people (seemingly everywhere) have been
suffering from some form of a "broken brain" condition!
20

Currently in Episode 5 now and I am deeply impressed with


the interview of Dr. Jennifer Love who says: "conventional
psychiatry, is ... driven by the pharmaceutical industry ..."
...My nursing professors—I apparently used to drive them
crazy. I was always asking questions about, "Well, why does
this work? If we do something in this system, how does it
affect this other system?" They would just throw their hands
up in the air and say, "Go to medical school."
I finally ended up down that path and going to medical school.
After about nine years of medical training, I got my first job. All
these questions that I had, there's so much information in
medical school that you get, they say it's like drinking out of a
fire hose. There's so much coming at you. But I realized when
I was out in the day-to- day world that I was still stuck with the
question of why. Why is this happening? So much of medicine
is treading water. It's taking care of symptoms. I found myself
trying to figure out how to get to the root of all of this. I've
never really thought of myself as a functional psychiatrist. I
just like getting in and coming up with something better than
trying to calm down symptoms.
With conventional psychiatry, it's largely driven by the
pharmaceutical industry and managed care. Physicians are
under time constraints to only spend a certain amount of time
with patients. The reimbursements are for very short visits. It's
difficult to be able to spend the time you need to really get at
the heart of the issue. I think that's true not just in psychiatry,
but in every discipline.
[Psychiatry is medication based] -
21

I think some of the challenges with conventional psychiatry is


that it's really based on symptom management. There's not a
lot of research that isn't funded by pharmacological
companies. It's really medication based and physicians are
expected to prescribe medication, and then the insurance
companies want therapy to be done by therapists because it's
less expensive. You have this division of ... you have
prescribers and then you have people who are coming in and
trying to use therapy to get at the underlying issues. There's
just a disconnect.
My first job out of my fellowship training was with a big HMO
company. If I said the name, you'd recognize them. I used to
get in trouble for spending too much time with my patients. I
would have patients who would come in and they were
alcoholic or having a major depressive episode, and they'd
never seen a physician to discuss it before. I was expected to
do their entire evaluation and treatment in 20 minutes. It just
didn't make sense to me that someone who is suffering from
an alcohol use disorder ... My supervisor literally told me that I
need to give them Prozac and Trazodone for sleep and then
you're done and send them out. It just wasn't a good fit for me
at all.
When I fell into the practice and group that I'm with now, I
think the biggest draw was the ability to take time with people
to really get to know what's going on with them so we could
look beyond treading water and trying to manage the
symptoms of the moment, but get really at the heart of
everything.
The first question is: why is a person anxious? I think there
are a lot of different reasons. I think every person who comes
22

into my office has a different story. Some people have a very


strong genetic predisposition to anxiety. Some people have
been anxious since childhood. Some people come from very
chaotic backgrounds. Some people have an onset in college
and later. Finding out what is at the cause will then help me
come up with a treatment plan that's individualized for them.
I think one of the big issues with anxiety for a lot of people is:
if it's been going on since childhood, people may be really
anxious and not even realize their level of anxiety because to
them they're so used to it. They've always functioned that
way. ...
Expert Interviews – Jennifer Love, MD everyday existence is
and talk to them about anxiety that they go, "Oh, wow. I
actually really am anxious." One of the hallmarks with anxiety
that I see is a total disconnect between the emotional part of
the brain and the logical part of the brain. ...[2]

August 30, 2018 - Antidepressant Neurotoxicity -
"Antidepressants are neurotoxic, that is, they harm the brain
and disrupt its functions. As a result, they cause innumerable
kinds of abnormal thinking and behaviors, including mania,
suicide and violence. In the process, they cause detectable
damage to the brain of the child or adult, and also to the fetus
of pregnant mothers who take the drug.”[11]

Dr. Breggin is author of: "Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal" - A


Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and their Families.
23

This book provides a roadmap for prescribers, therapists,


patients and their families that enables patients to taper off
their drugs and achieve emotional and physical recovery. It
also provides treatment approaches for patients on or off
psychiatric drugs.
And -

August 16, 2018 - "Eliciting the Patient’s Agenda - Secondary
Analysis of Recorded Clinical Encounters" -

"Clinicians often fail to elicit the patient’s agenda and when
they do, they promptly interrupt patients".
Abstract - Background -
Eliciting patient concerns and listening carefully to them
contributes to patient-centered care. Yet, clinicians often fail to
elicit the patient’s agenda and, when they do, they interrupt
the patient’s discourse.
Objective -
We aimed to describe the extent to which patients’ concerns
are elicited across different clinical settings and how shared
decision- making tools impact agenda elicitation.
24

Key Results
Clinicians elicited the patient’s agenda in 40 of 112 (36%)
encounters. Agendas were elicited more often in primary care
(30/61 encounters, 49%) than in specialty care (10/51
encounters, 20%); ... In 27 of the 40 (67%) encounters in
which clinicians elicited patient concerns, the clinician
interrupted the patient after a median of 11 seconds ...
Uninterrupted patients took a median of 6 s ... to state their
concern.
Conclusions
Clinicians seldom elicit the patient’s agenda; when they do,
they interrupt patients sooner than previously reported. ...
Failure to elicit the patient’s agenda reduces the chance that
clinicians will orient the priorities of a clinical encounter toward
specific aspects that matter to each patient.
INTRODUCTION -
The medical interview is a pillar of medicine. It allows patients
and clinicians to build a relationship. Ideally, this process is
inherently therapeutic, allowing the clinician to convey
compassion, and be responsive to the needs of each patient.
Eliciting and understanding the patient’s agenda enhances
and facilitates patient-clinician communication. Agenda setting
is a conversational strategy that allows clinicians and patients
to negotiate and collaborate to clarify the concerns and
expectations of both parties. This results in a constructive
alliance that leads to focused, efficient, and patient-centered
care. A review of the literature, evaluating communication and
relationship skills, identified six studies in general clinical
practice, in which setting the patient’s agenda enhanced
25

communication efficiency. However, despite these potential


benefits, the use of this communication skill in general clinical
practice appears to be limited. In a landmark clinical
communication study published in 1984, Beckman et al. found
that in 69% of the visits to a primary care internal medicine
practice, the physician interrupted the patient, with a mean
time to interruption of 18 s. Fifteen years later, Marvel et al.
found that physicians solicited the patient’s concern in 75% of
primary care visits and interrupted this initial statement in a
mean of 23 s. Similarly, Dyche et al. found in 2004 that in
approximately 60% of general medicine visits, the clinician
inquired about the patient’s agenda, that only 26% of the
patients completed their statement uninterrupted, and that the
mean time to interruption was 16.5 s. In addition, failure to
elicit the patients’ agenda was associated with a 24%
reduction in the physician’s understanding of the main
reasons for the consultation. Although the prevalence of
agenda setting has been studied in general medicine clinics,
the prevalence of agenda setting in specialty care remains
relatively unexplored. One study evaluating psychiatric
consultations found agenda inquiries in 90% of these visits,
with 67% of these proceeding without interruption. These
studies, performed decades apart, suggest that clinicians
often fail to elicit the patient’s agenda and when they do, they
promptly interrupt patients.[9]

In another blog post I presented the importance of being


heard within the therapeutic relationship. The importance is
unparalleled! Another words being heard is essentially all that
is needed for a resolution for the psyche which s the epi
26

center for healing of the mind-body as a continuum. The flip


side of this is the need for "mind clearing" when an incomplete
communication has adversely impacted an individual. The
most positive expression across the spectrum of
communication is when one experiences their communication
is life! The findings in the above quoted "Abstract" are rather
astonishing in light of the potential for communication within
the therapeutic relationship. Medical doctors can argue that
they are not psychologists however there is such a thing
known as patient-centered medicine although that hasn't been
fully realized, yet.
Doctors apparently need to be trained (or better trained) in
doctor- patient and patient-doctor communications. I'd love to
contribute toward that training! I can easily visualize a
community-based model that is provided through community
health-service organizations that offer support services for
patients. The start of this could be easily implemented with
basic dyad communication exercises. Staff members in the
organization would be given an introductory workshop on
dyad communications with the intention that they would
engage their clients who want support in communicating with
their doctors.
The client would learn the dyad technique and practice it with
the staff member till the client was confident in their ability in
both functions of communication: as the active communicator
and as the receptive listener. When one community service
organization has implemented the training then other
community health orgs can be introduced to it as well. With
enough track records in at least a few community
organizations then pre-med schools could be approached. All
27

of this is locally available where I live and so it is feasible to


launch this initiative right where I am!

February 14, 2018 - The Consequences of Modern Day
Education, Processed Food and Agriculture on Brain
Development -

The ramifications in suppressing clear logical thinking by way


of the public educational systems extends in all directions –
within the “human being” (declining individuality if it ever was
there) and externally into the social/political/economic spheres
(as another child subject to however the prevailing winds are
blowing). A few decades ago the materialistic science could
not detect the physical impact but now that is possible. Yet the
impact was known a hundred years ago:
“What we call power of discrimination, power of judgment in
man, in other words the logical thinking of the thinker, brings
about a definite change in the whole structure of the human
brain. Clear thinking causes a change in the physical
instrument of the brain. Scientific research knows little of this,
but it is a fact that a physical brain that has been used by a
thinker has a different appearance from the brain which
belongs to a non-thinker.”[i]
28

Food is another way that is used to conquer a nation. The


missing vital nutrients consequential to modern day food
processing as well as modern day (so-called) agriculture
impact the ability to think. The brain functions differently
according to the type and quality of its food somewhat
comparable to operating an automobile. The nutritional
consequences in this instance are mental disorders as
documented by Dr. Weston A. Price.[ii]
There are a number of additional factors that play into this
phenomena as well. Jon also has presented some of these.
In Grattude!
