meditation therapy

Psychotherapy works by going deep into the brain and its neurons and changing their structure by turning on the right genes. Psychiatrist Dr. Susan Vaughan has argued that the talking cure works by ‘talking to neurons,’ and that an effective psychotherapist or psychoanalyst is a 'microsurgeon of the mind’ who helps patients make needed alterations in neuronal networks.

Never trust a man who makes fun of your self maintanence, especially when it's things like medication, therapy, meditation, biofeedback, catching all your meals on time, a set bedtime, or a daily schedule, especially when things like the stability of your brain chemistry depends on your self maintanence. My example is I have a hormone that my body doesn't produce. I have to inject it. If I miss it more than twice in a week, I lose the ability to form coherent sentences for a few days. Lots'o'fun
