In reply to Where I can still find the 3 minutes cure prog.?, posted by Carmen-L on September 3, 2009, at 4:45:21
I saw some talk about this a long time ago on this site. Received a link in my in box today here so I looked it up a little,
First I ( or anyone I assume ) can no longer get to:
so maybe he is not selling it anymore or maybe it is under something different, which is what I might suspect I might find if I put more effort into finding it!
I also found the following site which I found rather amusing:
And lastly I looked it up at the BBB and found the following:
I have my own opinions of course. My brother is a Naturopath and he always tells me they teach them that (I forgot the exact %) but like 30% or more of a "cure" is believing in the "cure" or the "doctor" providing the "cure" I have some great stories he told me about placebos. Funny but true.
I believe if one is not "clinically" (my vernacular is probably off here but for lack of a better term)depressed a lot of things could potentially help. In my experience even being "clinically" depressed some things helped because I believed they would, but I could only "fool myself" for a limited amount of time.
Unfortunately just as one's mind cannot "cure" a diseased liver or kidney neither can it"cure" the diseased brain. An organ is an organ. That is how I explain my depression to people who try to tell me that I can "think" my way out of my depression. I am weak and need to believe and pull myself up by my own boot straps... You all know what I mean , it is told to us all in many many different ways. I ask them to try and think their way out of cirrhosis or pick the organ! A diseased organ is a diseased organ be it the liver , the kidney , the heart...or the brain!
I have no doubt that changing routine or ritual behavior that is born from long term depression (commonly accepted treatments like DBT or CBT)(I don't know if I am getting all the acronyms right here)can help alleviate some of the symptoms we with long term clinical depression have to live with. At least I believe it can help some. But that is my opinion based on personal experience and the belief that these practices would not continue in the main stream of therapy if they did not bear out some success, even if it were temporary. I could be wrong. Not trying to argue here, am open to others opinions about it all.
Changing behavior could have an impact on the internal chemical makeup? Changing our external environment , be it air , food , company we surround ourselves with, eliminating all sorts of "toxins" could potentially alleviate symptoms of many different diseases of different organs. By my brothers account most of the diseases we have are caused by our routinely putting "toxins" into our bodies by eating or breathing, taking medication (toxic chemicals)... Not that I believe medications do not have their place in many of our lives.
Sorry I got off on a tangent today.
If you actually read this whole thing kudos to you. I am willing to read any and all response if anyone has any.
