Meditate And Live Longer
Before I practiced medicine at my Wellness Center, I was a sports physiology educator. So I know first-hand the value of a sound mind in a sound body. In fact, my “whole-body, whole-mind” approach led me to study anti-aging in depth, which as you know has become my main areas of specialization. In fact, I was one of the first physicians in the country to be certified as an anti-aging specialist. While advising a gymnastics team back in those early days, I often found myself dealing with the mental states of athletes. And that’s when I really discovered the power of meditation. I taught many of these gymna...

What to Do When the Toxic People in Your Life Are (Unfortunately) Your Parents
Parents: You can't live with them, you feel guilty not staying in touch with them. We always hear the advice "distance yourself from toxic people" to improve the quality of our lives. But what if those toxic people happen to be the people who raised us? Take this email I received from a young woman lawyer (let's call her Janine): My very volatile mother likely has borderline personality disorder. I did reasonably well for myself despite navigating the chaos that was my childhood in her home. Now that I'm married, I want to further distance myself.

Book Review: Unhinged
Anna Berry’s Unhinged is an intense read — a personal, in-depth account of the heartbreaking and grueling components of a life with mental illness. However, a pertinent takeaway message for readers is the optimistic road to recovery — one that doesn’t necessarily have to involve medication. Unhinged delves into Berry’s painful history with mental illness. The beginning pages depict a rather exhaustive list of the multiple diagnoses she has received over the years. She validates her diagnosis of borderline personality disorder — an unstable childhood upbringing most likely left a poignant...

Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder
Caring about someone with borderline personality disorder (BPD) tosses you on a roller coaster ride from being loved and lauded to abandoned and bashed. Having BPD is no picnic, either. You live in unbearable psychic pain most of the time on the border between reality and psychosis. Your illness distorts your perceptions, causing antagonistic behavior and making the world a perilous place. The pain and terror of abandonment and feeling unwanted can be so great that suicide feels like a better choice. If you like drama, excitement, and intensity, enjoy the ride, because things will never be calm. Following a passionate begi...

Fear of Success Masquerading as Fear of Failure
People often justify their lack of effort at achieving a desired goal to a fear of failure - as if failure by never making an effort is somehow less of a failure than trying and failing. Why would anyone assume failure before even making an effort? Often, the "fear of failure" is really a fear of success. Their successes may often provoke severe family dysfunction.read more (Source: Psychology Today Personality Center)

How to Spot Manipulation
We all want to get our needs met, but manipulators use underhanded methods. Manipulation is a way to covertly influence someone with indirect, deceptive, or abusive tactics. Manipulation may seem benign or even friendly or flattering, as if the person has your highest concern in mind, but in reality it’s to achieve an ulterior motive. Other times, it’s veiled hostility, and when abusive methods are used, the objective is merely power. You may not realize that you’re being unconsciously intimidated. If you grew up being manipulated, it’s harder to discern what’s going on because it feels famili...

The Third Wave of CBT
Conclusion Thirty years ago the cognitive behavioral approach to therapy was limited to the treatment of major depressive disorder and a very limited treatment for some anxiety disorders. Most practitioners at that time viewed this approach as rather simplistic, but admittedly effective for a small range of problems. The “deeper” and more “challenging” cases would be the focus for “depth” therapies of various kinds. Although those “depth” therapies provided little evidence of any effectiveness, they were seen as addressing the “real underlying problems.” Psychothe...
