The Truth about Depression: Choices for Healing - Charles L. Whitfield


The Truth about Depression: Choices for Healing

Almost 40 percent of the U.S. population suffers from some form of depression or mental illness yet the causes of mental illness remain largely a mystery. The prevailing theory sees the cause as a trans-generational genetic defect of brain chemistry, which is best treated with medication.

New breakthroughs made by health professionals dislodge this theory, and show that frequently previous traumas are what lead to mental illness.

In this bold new book, renowned physician and psychotherapist Charles Whitfield takes a new look at the common problems of depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, schizophrenia and other mental illness. "The Truth About Depression" shows the strong and at times causal relationship between childhood trauma and future depression and other mental illness; he explores the risks, side-effects and high cost of treating these disorders with anti-depressant drugs, and; provides an alternative treatment and recovery program for people with depression and a history of childhood trauma.

Dr. Whitfield's book offers hope and help for those who have been held hostage by depression, and provides clinicians with new solutions and alternatives to high-risk medications.

Insight: Reflections on the Gifts of Being an Introvert - Beth Buelow


Insight: Reflections on the Gifts of Being an Introvert

Have you ever felt like something was wrong with you, just because you were an introvert?

If so, you’re not alone.

Over the past few years, I’ve been witness to thousands of introverts who have experienced a greater understanding of what exactly it means to be an
introvert in an extroverted world.

They’ve discovered that introversion isn’t just a quirky thing that gives us an excuse to leave the party early. It’s a way of being in conscious relationship
with our energy. It influences how we show up in the world.

Above all, we’ve learned to see it as a strength.

This book shares insights and inspiration for introverts who want to create life on their own terms.

"Insight: Reflections on the Gifts of Being an Introvert" is a compilation of my favorite blog posts and articles that speak specifically to the introvert, mixed in with topics that are more general but still interesting to anyone who wants to deepen his or her self-awareness.

False Labels: Don't let people Label you - Marie-Claire Kuja


False Labels: Don't let people Label you

Who hasn’t felt stuffed into an identity they never asked for at some point in their lives?
As children and adults, plenty of us are still trapped inside those identities.
Throughout life people are constantly putting us down with derogatory words. It’s just like they are sticking a label on us. Too short, too old, too tall, too slow, too many mistakes, not talented enough, can never amount to anything, can never do anything right etc. These stories we hear are from the beliefs, attitudes, assumptions and labels that have been bestowed upon us by our scolding parents, our uptight teachers, and our rejecting friends. Unfortunately, negative and demeaning words impact our lives and deliver a crushing blow to our fragile sense of self worth. They leave a lasting scar.

But how can we combat this? How can we empower our spirits and minds and the generation to come?
Fl which transcends age and gender is packed with inspirational stories which encourages personal empowerment, self esteem and spiritual growth. FL addresses the virtually universal pain that we are never good enough. Every man, woman, boy or girl is encouraged to embrace their own story joyfully, completely and with pride. In Fl we are further reminded that it is possible to always be exactly who we are and its perfect to bring our own special brand of joy and charm into the world.
FL further encourages us :
To believe that we are not who people call us but what God created us to be.
We have the power to choose and believe in our own stories
To believe that God created us for a divine purpose.
That everyone is unique in their own right,
To use our words to build and not to destroy
To be ourselves instead of an imitation of someone else
To celebrate our uniqueness
And to believe that there are much better truth if we look beyond false labels.
