    The dos and don’ts of helping a drug addict recover

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Addiction is a learning disorder; it's not a sign that someone is a bad person.

    Tough love doesn't help drug-addicted people. Research shows that the best way to get people help is through compassion, empathy and support. Approach them as an equal human being deserving of respect.

    As a first step to recovery, Maia Szalavitz recommends the family or friends of people with addiction get them a complete psychiatric evaluation by somebody who is not affiliated with any treatment organization. Unfortunately, warns Szalavitz, some people will try to make a profit off of an addicted person without informing them of their full options.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MAIA SZALAVITZ:

    Maia Szalavitz is widely viewed as one of the premier American journalists covering addiction and drugs. A neuroscience writer for TIME.com and a former cocaine and heroin addict, she understands the science and its personal dimensions in a way that few others can. is the first book-length exposé of the tough love business that dominates addiction treatment. Her newest book is Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRANSCRIPT:

    MAIA SZALAVITZ: There are people who are trying to promote brain surgery for addiction using electrical stimulation of that area and it doesn't work any better than methadone. And that's not to say that methadone isn't the most useful drug we currently have, but it does not involve invasive surgery. I should say methadone and buprenorphine, the opioid agonists, are the best treatments that we have for opioid addiction. And what they do is two things: The first thing is they cut the death rate by 50 percent, which is – this happens whether you continue using on top or not. So that's pure harm reduction and that's wonderful. If we can keep you alive long enough that you stabilize your life, that is a lot better than having you die. The other thing that they do is they allow people, who are ready, to stabilize their lives. So you couldn't tell right now if I was on a maintenance treatment or not because basically once you get a tolerance to these drugs you are not high or impaired, and you can drive and you can work and you can love and you can do all of these things, but we don't understand, we think, Oh you've just substituted one addiction for another. No, what you've done is you've substituted compulsive behavior despite negative consequences, and now you just have a physical dependence. And that's not a real problem as long as you have a safe and legal supply.

    I think the most important place to start is that addiction is a learning disorder; it's not a sign that you're a bad person. And if you want to have a safe and addiction-free, or at least lower level addiction, workplace or school, you want people to feel included and comfortable and safe and you don't want this to be an adversarial thing. The research shows that the best way to get people help is through compassion and empathy and support, and absolutely not tough love. There may be situations in which an employer has to fire somebody because their performance has just degraded so much that there's no other option, but they shouldn't think, I'm doing them a favor by firing them, because that will make them hit bottom and it will help them. Sometimes that happens, but sometimes they just go on to a life of homelessness and then die. So you can't assume that creating extra-negative consequences is actually going to help a person with addiction. What you want to do is ally yourself with them and, presuming this is an employee that you want to keep, help them realize that this is not a sin. I am not trying to control you. What I want to do is for you to be at your best – at work, at home. And you're not being at your best right now, so what can we do to help?

    Well, I think the important way to start that conversation is to first not assume that a problem that you think might be drugs is drugs. The person could be having any number of mental illnesses, the person could be having, you know, there's a million things that could look like oh you think they have a drug problem and there's something else going on. So if you approach the person with respect and not assuming that you're going to find a drug thing unless, obviously in some situations it's completely obvious...

  • Be Recovered: Breaking free from the Disease of Addiction | Dean Taraborelli | TEDxSedona

    18:52

    NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We’ve flagged this talk, which was filmed at a TEDx event, because it falls outside TEDx’s curatorial guidelines. This talk only represents the speaker’s personal understanding of and experiences with medical treatment, mental health, addiction, consciousness, energy, and human physiology and is not corroborated by scientific evidence. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here:

    Addiction continues to permeate our society and our lives in increasing numbers and new ways. The traditional addiction treatment paradigm insists that addiction is an incurable and chronic disease requiring lifelong symptom management. Thanks to advances in neuroscience and epigenetics, we now know that when underlying issues are resolved, addictions, depression, PTSD and anxiety can also be fully resolved. For over a decade, Dean Taraborelli has challenged traditional models head-on with a revolutionary Integrative Addiction Recovery program that combines the latest advances in science with ancient healing modalities to treat the whole person and has helped hundreds of clients to be recovered from addiction and to live full, meaningful lives. This provocative talk will challenge fundamental, underlying assumptions about addiction and paint an exciting path to a cure for what was previously thought to be incurable. Dean Taraborelli: He is the Founder, Administrator, Counselor at the Sanctuary at Sedona. He has a BA in Political Science and is currently Senior teaching staff at Four Winds Society, an international school of energy medicine. His credentials also include being an Ordained Minister; a Certified Shamanic Breathwork® Facilitator; a Founding Member Society for Shamanic Practitioners; a Member of Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology; a Member of National Institute for Holistic Addiction Studies. Dean has traveled extensively to sacred sites in over 60 countries to study world mythology, religion, spirituality, wisdom traditions and indigenous healing and wellness practices.

  • 3 Brain Systems That Control Your Behavior: Reptilian, Limbic, Neo Cortex | Robert Sapolsky

    3 Brain Systems That Control Your Behavior: Reptilian, Limbic, Neo Cortex

    Join Big Think Edge for exclusive videos:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You have three brains—the triune, the limbic, and the cortex—and they're all fighting for dominance as you go about your life. The so-called lizard brain (the triune) is perhaps the one we tend to think of as instinctual and gives us our basic instincts like, for example, staying alive or not touching fire. The limbic brain controls our emotions like fear and desire, while our cortex gives us the knowledge that makes us human. Basically, the three brains talk to one another and vie for rank in certain situations... it's sort of like Three's Company except with brain systems. For instance: you're reminded of something sad by your cortex and it triggers your limbic system, or you get cut off in traffic your lizard brain can trigger the cortex and the limbic. It is a pretty fascinating subject, and Robert Sapolsky waxes poetic about the three distinct characters that live up inside your head.

    Robert Sapolsky's most recent book is Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ROBERT M SAPOLSKY:

    Robert M. Sapolsky holds degrees from Harvard and Rockefeller Universities and is currently a Professor of Biology and Neurology at Stanford University and a Research Associate with the Institute of Primate Research, National Museums of Kenya. His most recent book is Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Transcript:

    ROBERT SAPOLSKY: What’s the best way to think about the brain? It’s insanely complicated. Everything connects to everything. A gazillion little subregions.

    Amid all that complexity there’s a broadly sort of simplifying way to sort of think about aspects of brain function when it comes to behavior. And this was an idea put forth by this guy Paul MacLean, a grand poohbah on the field, conceptually of thinking of the brain as coming in three functional layers.
    The triune brain—and again this is highly schematic—the brain really doesn’t come in three layers, but one could think of the first most, the bottom most, the most ancient as being what’s often termed the “reptilian brain,” where basically the parts in there, we’ve got the same wiring as in a lizard, as in any ancient creature. It’s been there forever—ancient, ancient wiring at the base of the brain, most inside. And what does that region do? All the regulatory stuff. Your body temperature changes, it senses it and causes you to sweat or shiver. It’s monitoring your blood glucose levels. It’s like releasing hormones that are essential to sort of everyday shop keeping. It’s just keeping regulatory stuff in balance.

    Sitting on top of that is conceptually what could be termed the limbic system, the emotional part of the brain. And this is very much a mammalian specialty. Lizards are not well known for their emotional lives. Part of the brain having to do with fear, arousal, anxieties, sexual longings, all those sorts of things – very mammalian. You’re off there in the grasslands butting heads with somebody else with antlers, and its your limbic system that’s heavily involved in that.

    Then sitting on the top is the layer three, the cortex. The cortex, spanking new, most recently evolved part of the brain. Everybody’s got a little bit of cortex but it’s not until you get to primates that you’ve got tons, and then apes, and then us. So functionally it’s very easy to think of this simplistic flow of commands. Layer two, the limbic system, can make layer one, the reptilian brain, activate. When is that? Your heart beats faster not because of a regulatory reptilian thing—Ooh, you’ve been caught in something painful but oh, an emotional state. You’re a wildebeest and they’re some scary menacing wildebeest threatening you and that emotional state causes your limbic system to activate the reptilian brain and your heart beats faster. You have a stress response. Not because a regulatory change happened in your body but for an emotional reason.

    Then it’s very easy to think of, layered on top, this cortical area commanding your second layer, your limbic system to have an emotional response rather than something emotional: Here’s a threatening beast right in front of you. Something emotional. You see a movie that’s emotionally upsetting. See a movie. These are not real characters. They’re pixels and it’s your cortex that’s turning that abstract cognitive state into an emotional response.

  • Controlling Your Dopamine For Motivation, Focus & Satisfaction | Huberman Lab Podcast #39

    2:16:32

    This episode serves as a sort of “Dopamine Masterclass”. I discuss the immensely powerful chemical that we all make in our brain and body: dopamine. I describe what it does and the neural circuits involved. I explain dopamine peaks and baselines, and the cell biology of dopamine depletion. I include 14 tools for how to control your dopamine release for sake of motivation, focus, avoiding and combating addiction and depression, and I explain why dopamine stacking with chemicals and behaviors inevitably leads to states of underwhelm and poor performance. I explain how to achieve sustained increases in baseline dopamine, compounds that injure and protect dopamine neurons including caffeine from specific sources. I describe non-prescription supplements for increasing dopamine—both their benefits and risks—and synergy of pro-dopamine supplements with those that increase acetylcholine.

  • 15 HABITS THAT MAY KILL YOU

    15:11

    HARMFUL HABITS

    These habits are really shocking but that's the ugly truth. You probably haven't realized that we do most of these almost every day.

    During her lifetime, a woman eats 1.5 kg of lipstick if she uses it every day. Here's what ends up not only on her lips, but also inside of her:

    WAX
    - paraffin accumulates in the liver, kidneys and lymph glands.
    - vaseline dries the skin of your lips.
    - lanolin disrupts the work of the stomach and intestine.

    SYNTHETIC COLORINGS
    - carmine can cause skin irritation or allergies.
    - mica and silica, these produce the glimmering effect, but can cause skin irritation.

    PRESERVATIVES disrupt the work of the internal organs.

    AROMATIZERS can cause strong allergic reactions.

    AROMA AGENTS raise blood pressure and cause migraines.

    Try to use lipstick with more natural ingredients. Instead of lipstick, use lip balm more often. It's colorless, and therefore less harmful.
    Don't ever squeeze blackheads!

    The core won't fully come out. The skin will be damaged and inflamation will occur. Don't squeeze them in the 'danger zone'. This risks the appearance of the infections in the brain.

    Blackheads are easily confused with moles. Don't use tweezers or needles to remove them. You can damage the facial nerve. Plus frequent squeezing of blackheads exhausts the skin's resources. Scars and slashes can be left on the face.

    Try to avoid these harmful habits. Stay safe and sound! ; )

  • Dr. Jason Fung: Fasting as a Therapeutic Option for Weight Loss

    1:11:28

    Dr. Jason Fung, MD, is a nephrologist and expert in the use of intermittent fasting and low-carbohydrate diets for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. In this presentation, delivered on Aug. 2, 2018, at the 2018 CrossFit Health Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, Fung shares his first-hand experiences with “The Mess” and discusses how he shifted his research and medical practices as a result of those experiences.

    Fung’s objectives for his presentation include:
    1. Understanding why long-term weight loss is so difficult.
    2. Introducing the concept of therapeutic fasting.
    3. Understanding some myths and misunderstandings associated with the fasting process.

    He recalls treating obese and diabetic patients with traditional methods, which included what he characterizes as poor dietary recommendations and a slurry of drugs. He explains, “It became obvious that I’m just sort of holding their hand until they get their heart attack, until they get dialysis, until they go blind, until we chop their feet off.”

    “It’s really sad to realize that the profession that you’ve chosen is not really helping people,” he says. This realization compelled him to diagnose the problems associated with traditional care and seek alternative treatment methods for his patients.

    Fung historicizes what he calls “the modern eating pattern,” which emerged in 1977 in the U.S. with the development of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. He notes the 1977 guidelines led to the consumption of more grains and sugars, which in turn led to people “eating often, eating late, and eating all the time.”

    Incidences of obesity and Type 2 diabetes reached epidemic levels, and the most common treatments long have been drug interventions. Unfortunately, the prevailing non-pharmaceutical prescription — to eat less and move more — has a 99.9% failure rate. Fung observes that popular wisdom tells us to blame the patient and assume he or she did not adhere to the prescription. He claims a basic understanding of metabolism suggests otherwise, however.

    Fung explains why a significant reduction in caloric intake leads to a decrease in basal metabolism. This biological inevitability is ignored by the proponents of the “calories in, calories out” fallacy, he observes.

    He also explains why intermittent fasting is an effective alternative to traditional treatments for obesity and diabetes. The modern eating pattern keeps our insulin levels high all the time as we eat over long durations, and when insulin remains high all the time, Fung explains, our bodies store food energy as fat, and we remain hungry.

    Intermittent fasting, on the other hand, allows insulin levels to drop, which puts us in burning mode rather than storing mode.
    Fung claims his recommendations are so effective that patients no longer need to say, “Oh wow, I have to go see my doctor to see what pill I need,” or, “I need to go see my doctor to see if he needs to stick a stent in me.” Instead, Fung explains, “We’re giving you the power to take back your own health, because you’re not gonna get it from anywhere else.”

    4:17

    Unfortunately or fortunately, the human tooth is connected with so many nerves and when it's damaged, you will feel serious pain.


    There are several signals that tell you the degree of tooth decay so if you have any pain or symtoms, I hope you visit the dentist as soon as possible.

    Brain Tumor: Symptoms and Signs

    Headaches, which may be severe and worsen with activity or in the early morning.
    Seizures. People may experience different types of seizures.
    Certain drugs can help prevent or control them.
    Personality or memory changes.
    Nausea or vomiting.
    Fatigue.
    Drowsiness.
    Sleep problems.
    Memory problems.

    Symptoms of a brain tumor can be general or specific. A general symptom is caused by the pressure of the tumor on the brain or spinal cord. Specific symptoms are caused when a specific part of the brain is not working well because of the tumor. For many people with a brain tumor, they were diagnosed when they went to the doctor after experiencing a problem, such as a headache or other changes.

    General symptoms include:

    Headaches, which may be severe and worsen with activity or in the early morning

    Seizures. People may experience different types of seizures. Certain drugs can help prevent or control them. Motor seizures, also called convulsions, are sudden involuntary movements of a person’s muscles. The different types of seizures and what they look like are listed below:

    Symptoms that may be specific to the location of the tumor include:

    Pressure or headache near the tumor

    Loss of balance and difficulty with fine motor skills is linked with a tumor in the cerebellum.

    Changes in judgment, including loss of initiative, sluggishness, and muscle weakness or paralysis is associated with a tumor in the frontal lobe of the cerebrum.

    Partial or complete loss of vision is caused by a tumor in the occipital lobe or temporal lobe of the cerebrum.

    Changes in speech, hearing, memory, or emotional state, such as aggressiveness and problems understanding or retrieving words can develop from a tumor in the frontal and temporal lobe of the cerebrum.

    Altered perception of touch or pressure, arm or leg weakness on 1 side of the body, or confusion with left and right sides of the body are linked to a tumor in the frontal or parietal lobe of the cerebrum.

    Lactation, which is the secretion of breast milk, and altered menstrual periods in women, and growth in hands and feet in adults are linked with a pituitary tumor.

    Difficulty swallowing, facial weakness or numbness, or double vision is a symptom of a tumor in the brain stem.

    Vision changes, including loss of part of the vision or double vision can be from a tumor in the temporal lobe, occipital lobe, or brain stem.

  • How to get rid of homosexuality? - Dr. Sulata Shenoy

    3:49

    Even today people continue to believe that homosexuality is an abberation, an abnormality or even a criminal behavior. However it has been scientifically or legally proved and it is not so and it is one of the choices that we make in the process of growing up. Infact there is a huge body which suggests that sexual orientation is establishes in as young as a child of 3 years the person may grow up with these characteristics and they may grow up with these characteristics and while the process of growing p may show an attraction to the opposite sex or to one’s own. This has caused a lot of animosity from religious groups, sociocultural groups saying that this has to be corrected. However the psychological manuals no longer describe homosexuality and a mental disorder or something that has to be corrected. It is better when it is left alone and the person needs to be clarified in his own mind about his true sexual orientation and help him or her get on with life just as any other individual. In the past there were cruel methods to deal with homosexuality such as lobotomies or brain surgeries, medical castration or drugs being given to decrease the hormonal content in the person as well as lot of aversive and noxious stimuli in addition to noxious stimuli in an attempt to help the person to get over these impulses. research has shown that 88% of the people who were done like this had no change in their sexual orientation, rather it made them more anxious and even suicidal because It has exacerbated their guilt feelings and feelings of hopelessness and dejection. It was only 3% who had a different sexual orientation because end of such cures because it could be because they were not truly homosexual. In conclusion, let us not follow blind methods to cure homosexuality. Rather embrace the different kind of sexual orientation in a humane and a beneficial manner for all people.

    14:51

    Video for use in teaching CBT formulation, aiming to demonstrate some of the triggers, thoughts, feelings and responses linked with elevated mood. In order to try and provide information to build a formulation, the session moves faster than an average session might and does not include all aspects of standard CBT (e.g., agenda setting). An actor plays the character of Tom [Sam Newton], but the dialogue is not scripted, and as such this represents a natural therapeutic exchange. I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, but this is not a perfect example of CBT!

    Filmed and edited by Leeds Trinity University [Ricardo Barker]. The video was awarded a top video award from Healthline.com in 2015.
