How Modern Life Is Making Us Addicted and Insane

Constant distraction creates an insecure attachment with kids, which can lead to addiction and mental health issues. Over the past decade or two, seasoned therapists who treat young people have been seeing some increasingly worrisome trends. Although solid statistics are hard to come by, one indication of a surge in troubled young adults comes from the reports of college mental health services. A 2010 survey by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California, Los Angeles of almost 202,000 incoming college freshmen at 279 colleges and universities showed a shocking decline in self-reported mental and emotional well-being—at its lowest level since 1985, when HERI began conducting the surveys. In this recent survey, the percentage of students who rated their emotional health “above average” fell from 64 percent in 1985 to 52 percent. According to the June 2013 APA Monitor, 95 percent of surveyed college counseling-center directors said […] Read More

2014: Clinical lycanthropy | People do believe they are werewolves!

Clinical lycanthropy is a psychiatric disorder that causes a hallucination in the affected person into believing that he is or can become an animal. This disorder has been primarily associated with schizophrienia, but may also occur in bipolar disorder (mixed type), severe psychosis, manic-depressive illness, seizure disorders, psychotomimetic drugs, food poisoning or hallucinogenic substances. The symptoms of lycanthropy varies over a wide range, depending on the local culture where this phenomenon occurs. Overall this syndrome resides in an imbalance mind, which makes the patient believe his actual metamorphosis into an animal and thus acquires their behavior: for example, growls, walks on all fours, biting objects, being unable to speak, being overly aggressive and suffering from eating disorders (i.e the excess of eating raw meat, etc..). Clinical lycanthropy does not only refer to the transformation from human to wolf; the metamorphosis is extensive. There are reported cases of lycanthropy in  […] Read More

The Meat Crisis Is Here: Price Of Shrimp Up 61% – 7 Million Pigs Dead – Beef At All-Time High

As the price of meat continues to skyrocket, will it soon be considered a “luxury item” for most American families?  This week we learned that the price of meat in the United States rose at the fastest pace in more than 10 years last month.  Leading the way is the price of shrimp.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the price of shrimp has jumped an astounding 61 percent compared to a year ago.  The price of pork is also moving upward aggressively thanks to a disease which has already killed about 10 percent of all of the pigs in the entire country.  And the endless drought in the western half of the country has caused the size of the U.S. cattle herd to shrink to a 63 year low and has pushed the price of beef to an all-time high.  This is really bad news if you […] Read More

This 122 Year Old Woman Has The Most Important Secret To A Life Of Longevity

The primary determinant of health for the average person is thought. Not genetics, not exercise or nutrition, but the mind. This has been shown over and over again by the scientific fields of psychoneuroimmunology, psychoneurocardiology, psychoneuroendocrinology, not to mention cancer research and all the various psychosomatic disorders that have been studied. If you doubt that thought affects health then I will be happy to have a truckload of research evidence dumped at your doorstep (at your expense) that you can take the next few years perusing. On second thought, why don’t I just relate a story. The oldest documented person that ever lived was a French woman named Jeane Calment who made it to 122 years, 164 days on this earth. What was her secret? According to French researcher Jean-Marie Robine, “She never did anything special to stay in good health.” Jeane Calment smoked cigarettes (started at age 21), drank port wine and […] Read More

1882: The Thoughts Of The Dead

A man dies of a contagious disease; months after his death, aye, years – a bit of clothing, an object touched by him during his sickness, may communicate the disease to a person more physiologically sensitive than the persons around him, while having no effect upon the latter. And why should not an idea, a thought exercise the same influence? Thought is no less material nor objective than the imponderable and mysterious germs of various infectious diseases, the causes of which are such a puzzle for science. Since the mind of a living person can so influence another mind that the former can force the latter to think and believe whatever it will – in short, can psychologize that other mind, so can the thought of a person already dead. Once generated and sent out, that thought will live upon its own energy. It has become independent of the […] Read More
