Dr Freud had a lot of good ideas,great ideas, but the idea that bad toilet
training causes mental problems wasn't one of them.
However, Freud and many others since, have realized that stress is THE
major cause. What causes the stress is a different matter, often overlooked
in our "drug fix" world dominated by Big Pharma, the FDA (which is now
dominated by Big Pharma as well), and the "educationally handicapped"
medical profession in general.
One of the basic principles misunderstood by most of the above is
INDIVIDUALITY. I've found that this principle is much better understood by
the average person generally. MD's are too "cookbook" oriented by Big
Pharma, and they measure height and weight and prescribe, in effect, by
volume estimation. But, all too often, the individual person may require
either much more of that drug or much less, and may even get sicker on more
or less than correct. Individuality depends on what each person inherited
and what each person "learned" (both consciously and unconsciously) during
Another problem is that researchers with "wrong data" information for a
particular test get wrong answers as a result (The computer term is GIGO -
garbage in - garbage out). As a prime example, the RDA for vitamin C is 75
mg daily for humans, yet for optimum health the RDA for a 150 pound ape (or
other primates) in a zoo is 4000 mg daily. All primates (including us) have
the same lack of built in vitamin C manufacture (out of glucose - what a
shame, if we and the other primates hadn't lost the enzyme to convert
glucose into ascorbic acid 65 million years ago, we'd be a lot healthier on
the sugar rich diets in our culture today).
However, so-called researchers "fooled" by the RDA of 75 mg, often test
theories using amounts of 250-1000 mg per hour, or even day. They then put
out a "scientific" paper that states that "Vitamin C does not prevent colds
or flu". Their lack of knowledge causes their mistakes. By the time a
virus or cold is noticed by the symptoms, it has multiplied - doubling
every 20 minutes in the bloodstream. Now, it takes 3-4 grams within that
20 minutes to kill at a minimum.
The truth is that Vitamin C kills both bacteria and virus in the blood
stream very well, but the blood MUST be saturated with C to work
effectively. Vitamin C is used up quickly when any infection (viral or
bacterial) is present, and low doses only kill a small fraction of what may
be present. Both viruses and bacteria multiply in a binary way - doubling
their number in 20 minutes or so - If you even kill off half of the
infecting invaders, 20 minutes later, their numbers are back to what you
started with. 250 to 500 mg simply cannot saturate the blood!!
Another important factor - There is no such thing as a mental disease. At
best it may called a mental problem, or a mental condition. A disease is
again binary - you either have it or not. Measles, mumps, shingles, etc are
diseases. ADD/ADHD, autism, depression, insomnia, even schizophrenia are
all "conditions", and all vary depending on the individual. All of these
are "continuum's" with similar, but varying symptoms depending on the
individual. The attempt to codify these with many 100's of different
definitions, as is done by the DSM, is useless except for insurance
purposes. There is only one kind of depression, with hundred (or maybe an
infinite) number of INDIVIDUAL symptom responses.
If you understand all the foregoing fairly well, then the rest is easy.
Putting all the current reasonably good research together, it's easy to
separate and see the three basic causes of stress causing ALL mental
1. Nutritional deficiencies. This is a given in our modern world of
pollution of all food sources, processed food that "tastes good", but has
little nutrition we need. From a certain set of nutritional deficiencies in
two different people, one may exhibit mental symptoms, while another may
seem fine. Anyone with three brain cells that rub together knows that his
or her diet doesn't really supply what is needed for *optimum* health,
and even with dozens of supplements daily (which help dramatically as good
research has shown), few people reach optimum health. Few understand even
what they need, and the basic RDA misunderstandings don't help. It's so
much lower than actually needed for "good" health, that it's now actually
dangerous to our health.
2. Mineral Toxicity. Also in our modern world of pollution, we are
releasing some very toxic chemicals into the air, water, and food, Many of
these affect some people (individuality again) more than others. The autism
"epidemic" is now being seriously looked at as being largely caused by
mercury pollutions in the increasing number of infant and child vaccines,
along with increasing pollution of the atmosphere and the soil, and the
water, including the sea. The number of autism cases has increased
geometrically over the past few years. This autism evidence of mercury
cause is mounting, and the FDA (and Big Pharma) are looking more and more
like a cat trying to cover up their mess.
Mercury is also now very high in the fish food chain and this adds to
mother's milk to increase the mercury in infants. Even very low amounts are
accumulative, and any is dangerous. Lead in toys, and paint, copper in
various uses. Cadmium is high around smokers and other metal workers.
Arsenic is high around insecticides, etc, etc, etc.
3. Unsuspected allergens. I am constantly amazed at the lack of
knowledge about mental problems being caused by (usually) unsuspected
allergens. Most people, (even those with allergic shiners - puffy or dark
around the eyes like a raccoon - don't realize this is a sign of serious
allergy. Most think they don't have any allergies. Very few MD allergists
even know (or seemingly care) that every mental problem cataloged can be
caused directly by allergies. (None of four allergists in one allergy
clinic were even aware that allergies can cause mental problems directly
until showed proof of this.)
This is a negative going equation. The more stress put on you by life,
mineral toxicity and/or allergy(s), the more nutrition you need. So-called
stress tablets are mostly B complex and vitamin C. There's even a sort of
stress table that lists stress factors from loss of a spouse and other
serious stress factors, down to perhaps poor toilet training (who knows, it
could be a factor). However, mineral toxicity and allergen stress are the
two most important factors in all mental problems!
What to do? Where to start? This is again individual and requires some
serious detective work. What do you suspect first?
If nutritional deficiency, find a good supplement program, and try it. If
you are seriously deficient, you'll feel much better within a few days. I
recommend the following starting supplemental program.
Solgar VM-75 (2 of the new capsules for adults, and 1 for 6-12 year olds) -
take at least 3-4 hours before AND after any ascorbic acid vitamin C.
Available in most health food stores.
1 - 2000mg of vitamin C at breakfast and dinner - increase during flu
season if needed.
200 IU of Vitamin E per 40 years of life (minimum - add more if heart
500 mg of calcium citrate and 500 mg of magnesium citrate.
Of course, there are many other supplements to be added to this list
depending on your individual age and health history.
If you suspect mineral toxicity, get a hair analysis and if any toxic
mineral is double the average, learn how to chelate it out. More info at
If you suspect allergy, you're probably correct. The Neuroliminal Training
therapy apparently solves most of these "brain allergies" by changing brain
wave strengths. More info at www.drbate.com.
