Child ’s science experiment solves chronic disease mystery
“Chew this.” I was instructed. “But don’t swallow. Just tell me when IT happens.” IT? What was IT? I’d have to find out. My researcher’s son — who enlisted me in his science experiment — wasn’t telling. So I obliged and started chewing. It tasted just as I expected at first. Bland. Almost cardboard-like. And then the strangest thing occurred. After about a minute, a hint of sweetness tickled my tongue. I kept chewing. A few seconds later, it intensified… like I was sucking on candy. And a few seconds after that it felt like I had an entire spoonful of sugar...

All the gorillas were dying… Over 50 years of trying to breed gorillas in zoos and nothing was working. It didn’t matter where they tried — San Diego, Cincinnati, St. Louis — not even the best zoos in the country could get these gorillas to reproduce. They were facing extinction. And everyone simply accepted that it was impossible to breed gorillas in zoos. That was until one caretaker took a closer look at what the gorillas were eating. For decades, zoos fed the gorillas what they called gorilla biscuits. But, on top of being unable to reproduce, the gorillas were developing diseases like heart di...

The goal is to reprocess these memories in an adaptive way — eliminating emotional distress and reducing physiological arousal.  Francine Shapiro, PhD, discovered the effects of EMDR by understanding “dual awareness”.
