Cycling to Paris,  Gournay-en-Bray to Conflans St. Honorine

Sahasika

Today was always going to be tough: the furthest distance and the most ‘undulating’ terrain. Carrying 11kg panniers uphill when you aren’t the strongest of cyclists is tough, never mind doing it over and over again for several hours in blazing heat. I had argued strongly that we should stop regularly, and make sure we were in the shade when the sun was overhead between one and two o’clock. We set off back down the path to the nasty busy road, then into the town centre which had been like a ghost town centre last night. Today, by contrast, was market day and it was buzzing with stall holders getting set up for the day. I managed to catch one of the stalls with my pannier as I went past… nobody noticed so I made a quick getaway!

After just 9 miles we came upon a small village – St…

How childhood trauma could be mistaken for ADHD

ACEs Too High

Dr. Nicole Brown’s quest to understand her misbehaving pediatric patients began with a hunch.

Brown was completing her residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, when she realized that many of her low-income patients had been diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

These children lived in households and neighborhoods where violence and relentless stress prevailed. Their parents found them hard to manage and teachers described them as disruptive or inattentive. Brown knew these behaviors as classic symptoms of ADHD, a brain disorder characterized by impulsivity, hyperactivity, and an inability to focus.

When Brown looked closely, though, she saw something else: trauma. Hyper-vigilance and dissociation, for example, could be mistaken for inattention. Impulsivity might be brought on by a stress response in overdrive.

“Despite our best efforts in referring them to behavioral therapy and starting them on stimulants, it was hard to get the symptoms under control,”…

I would like to thank Dr. Terry Lynch for forwarding me an advance copy of his book for review :”Depression Delusion” (Volume One, The Myth Of The Brain Chemical Imbalance). I have been honored to get to read it before the general release in September 2015.

The basic premise of Terry’s book is to bury the so called ‘chemical imbalance theory’ once and for all. After reading through the 336 pages of his brilliant ‘depression delusion’ I think I can confidently say that Terry has not only buried the ‘chemical imbalance’ hypothesis but he has also given it its last rites, danced around it merrily at its wake, incinerated it thoroughly in the crematorium, and then plunged its ashen remains to the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. This is the definitive book on ‘the chemical imbalance theory’. It is a game-changer in terms of how people will perceive psychiatric diagnoses, the…
