Are Eating Disorders Racist? And Other Questions for Kati Morton
Therapist Kati Morton answers questions from her Tumblr readers, in a YouTube video. First, she talks about forgetting to talk about issues with your therapist during your appointment and ways to help remember, with helpful tips. The second question is, “Are eating disorders racist? …I don’t believe I can have one, because I’m African-American.” Kati replies that mental illness doesn’t discriminate, and that she’s had African-American clients struggling with eating disorders. The third question asks about switching therapists. Kati asks what work have you done on your own? If you&...

Hawaiian memories
In 1989 my family was renting a condo in Kaanapali.The one above us had a group of 4 college-aged women on vacation. We often heard them talking out on the balcony. They didn't bother us, we just noticed who the upstairs neighbors were.Anyway, one day my Dad and I were sitting outside, and we heard 2 of them upstairs, talking about some postcards they were sending back home. Suddenly, there was a huge gust of wind. The newspaper Dad was reading blew over the edge, and we saw some papers from the girls above get scattered into the air. We both went inside.A few minutes later I went out (I'd left my Diet Coke on the table) a...

Drink for Your Health
No doubt, if you’ve been following my blog, or reading Grain Brain, you’ve certainly gotten the message that you’ve got to do everything you can to avoid consumption of sugar. Scientific research has certainly made it clear that sugar consumption strongly relates to such maladies as coronary artery disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, this aggressive castigation of sugar consumption has led to an increase in people choosing to drink “sugar-free” beverages with the misguided sense that this represents a healthy alternative. The reality of the situation is that nothing could be ...

Dan E.
My wife Kate had long been suffering with, what I referred to as, an irritable bowel condition for quite some time. Her gastroenterologist after a colon exam, told her to eat a lot of “Bran Buds” every day and consume a daily fiber drink, along with a laxative. Upon following this advice, her condition deteriorated. She entered into phases of severe pain and sleeplessness, leading to extreme fatigue. We knew this wasn’t working and needed to try something different. After a few days on gluten-free, low-carb diet, her symptoms disappeared completely! Not only that, but her GP has previously put h...

In Grain Brain, I found a book that had resonated with what I had for so long believed to be the truth about optimal health. Prior to reading, I had suffered from severe headaches since I was eleven. Once I stopped eating gluten, lowered my carb intake, and increased my fat intake, my condition suddenly began to improve! Now, I rarely get headaches, and if I do they go away quickly. I also lost weight and my overall mood has improved. I’m very happy with my results! -Patricia C. The post Patricia C. appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D..

With reference to the latter, a new study published in the journal Neurology, correlated low levels of vitamin D to increased risk of develop...

Brain teaser to exercise your mental rotation cognitive abilities
Mental self-rotation is the cognitive ability to imagine yourself in different locations in space, and to imagine your body moving in space. We need it for everyday activities such as finding a place or reading a map. The ability involved is technically called egocentric spatial transformations (yes, that is the scientific expression) or mental self rotation, and the brain areas primarily involved are the parietal lobes. Here’s an example. — Figures above:The map is upside down (A). The red dot represents your car’s position. Your goal is to go to Walgreens (W). You can either pe...
