Holistic Steps to Recovery
for ADD/ADHD, Addiction, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Autism
Who’s Crazy Here? is a concise guide for people seeking options to psychiatric drugs. In a mere 113 pages, author Gracelyn Guyol (a recovered bipolar patient) convincingly explains what you can do to end or reduce the symptomsof nine major mental ailments: ADD/ADHD, Addiction, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Autism.
How is this possible? Conventional medicine treats each symptom separately - as if it is disconnected from the rest of the body - with drugs that often have side effects and long-term health risks. A “holistic” approach considers symptoms throughout the whole person, seeking to identify and correct these causes with natural substances or therapies, restoring the body’s own healing systems.
The first half of Who’s Crazy Here? describes causes that commonly contribute to all mental disorders. Under “Brain Basics,” Gracelyn covers what every brain needs for optimum performance. Substances to eliminate that disrupt mood and mental ability are discussed next, followed by how to counter biological imbalances and four “genetic quirks” known for their role in mental disorders since the 1960s. Other chapters explain what to do about flawed digestion, food allergies/sensitivities, environmental toxins, and emotional trauma—all significant triggers of mental malfunctions.
Each chapter in the second half of the book focuses on a specific diagnosis and its unique causes. Pioneering medical researchers or practitioners are introduced who have developed effective, drug-free treatments for these disorders over the past 60 years. Each diagnosis chapter ends with bulleted Steps to Recovery, a summary of holistic options to be discussed with alternative mental health practitioners.
Don’t expect to hear about these non-drug treatments from conventionally trained doctors or advertised on television soon. Inexpensive, all-natural supplements and therapies cannot be patented and earn billions of dollars like psychiatric medications, which is why they continue to be ignored by a medical industry primarily focused on profits.
When patients at workshops confessed they could seldom “wade through” the science in health books, Gracelyn listened. To keep this book short, she eliminated most scientific studies and footnotes, instead recommending DVDs, books, and web sites in a Resource section following each chapter, for those who want more data and details. She also responded to patient calls for help locating doctors trained to restore mental health without drugs. Chapter 1 of the book provides key words, web sites, and tips for finding these rare gems around the world via the Internet.
Discover doctors that emulate the approach of the late Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, who enabled 75% of his schizophrenic patients to recover sufficiently to attend school, hold jobs, have families, and enjoy a “normal” life using the “right” molecules.
Learn about the clinic that ended Gracelyn’s bipolar mania in just four months, which for two decades has been guiding patients to recovery from a range of mental illnesses utilizing only natural supplements.
Most addiction programs achieve long-term abstinence of 3-10%. The approach Gracelyn recommends—which instead of suggesting improved will power actually treats the physical causes of addiction—enjoys a 60-74% success rate.
Even children with autism, the most complex disorder, can often recover. Discover which remedies are most effective at reducing autistic symptoms, the on-line resources to trust, and steps toward improving behaviors and functioning.
