How Nutrients Affect Mental Health, the Importance of Good Nutrient Balance

Though medical science has made significant advances in researching and treating mental health diseases and developed new drugs each year to control the conditions and symptoms, mental illness remains one of the most persistent issues in society today. “Mental health problems are the single largest cause of disabilities in the world,” reported the Pan American Health Organization in 2019, before the ravages of COVID-19. The organization writes that depression, dementia, anxiety, and alcohol abuse are some of the major disabilities caused by mental health problems.

Research into the root causes of mental health issues has provided promising solutions. Walsh Research Institute, for instance, has made significant breakthroughs in research to unravel the biochemistry behind mental disorders, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

The successful application of research into nutrient-based therapy protocols and other alternative solutions …

Natural Remedies for Depression

You can’t watch TV these days without seeing advertisements for pharmaceutical treatments for depression. The current ads offer drugs to take in addition to the drugs you’re already taking that aren’t working. This would be funny if depression wasn’t widespread, incapacitating, and potentially fatal. It would be funnier still if these pharmaceuticals weren’t linked to an increased likelihood of suicidal or homicidal behavior. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV, commonly known as the DSM IV is the diagnostic manual used by mental health professional to classify mental illness. (It is currently undergoing revision and will soon be released as the DSM V).

There are several classifications for depression: Adjustment Disorder with Depressed Mood, Dysthymic Disorder (which the DSM V seeks to reclassify as Chronic Depressive Disorder), Major Depressive Disorders, and Bipolar Disorders. The DSM V proposes the inclusion of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder. If you’ve been paying attention to big …

Kevin McCarthy Moves Into Speaker’s Suite With Bid For Gavel Uncertain

Although the race for House speaker remains unsettled, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is already moving into the speaker’s suite.

Sharing a video of a man carting a stack of blue containers in what appeared to be the U.S. Capitol, NBC News’ Haley Talbot reported McCarthy “has moved into” the suite of offices and will have to move all his stuff back out if he loses the vote Tuesday. In fact, boxes from McCarthy’s office were spotted being transported to the speaker’s suite as early as last week, per CNN.

GOP Leader McCarthy has moved into the speakers suite but if he fails to secure 218 he will have to move all his stuff back out ⁦@AllieRaffa⁩ — Haley Talbot (@haleytalbotnbc) January 2, 2023

The flurry of activity kicks off the new year in which Republicans take control of the House by a small margin. McCarthy did not get into …

China’s Xi Is ‘Doing It Again’: Pompeo Suggests Cutting Off China Travel As COVID Surges

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that the United States and the rest of the world should cut off travel from China to prevent another global outbreak of a COVID variant.

The former Trump administration official appeared on Cats Roundtable, a local New York radio show hosted by John Catsimatidis, on Sunday and warned that a mass outbreak in China could cause a second COVID pandemic nearly three years after the first.

“We’re about to do the same thing again. The data is no good, but it sounds like we might have as many as one million – one million, John – Chinese people infected, fifty percent of their population traveling,” Pompeo said.

“There is no reason we should allow the Chinese to do this again, to send Chinese-infected persons around the world knowingly infecting people all across the globe. [Chinese President Xi Jinping] got away with this once. I regret that he wasn’t …

A “Futbol” Legend Passes Away


AMAC Exclusive – By Barry Casselman

American football fans are sometimes puzzled when they read stories from England about “football” or from other parts of the world about “futbol” — and realize that the sport referred to is not the game played by the Green Bay Packers. In fact, it is what Americans call soccer.

U.S. sports fans divide their interests among many professional sports, including baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and hockey, but the rest of the world favors some other sports, especially soccer, which I believe is the most popular global sport.

The ultimate professional soccer championship is the World Cup, which occurs every four years and was just held this year in Qatar. The tournament was watched on TV or listened to on the radio by billions of people.

Soccer originated in England and was called football, and was occasionally nicknamed soccer. Eventually, the British stopped …

You Can Be the Pebble


Sometimes, when you least expect it, things change markedly. Sometimes, the change is driven by one person, a pebble on the scale. Suddenly, the whole balance tips. Around us, scales are in equipoise, inertia seems in charge, little ever changing. Until … the pebble.

For those given to doubt, quick with comebacks, sure that inertia – in physics and human relations – carries the day, my preemption, recommendation without hesitation: Think harder.

You are at a town meeting, school performance, sports event, or ballet, witness a courageous remark, poignant recital, solo instrument, great move – and you clap. Suddenly everyone claps. You were the pebble.

Less common, more difficult, you break further from the crowd. Seeing something spectacular –a great speech, well-acted play, moving concert, great shot, win hard fought, and you speak up, maybe stand up, give a standing clap. Suddenly …

Experts: We must defeat gender ideology and protect children

On Sunday a panel of experts in the area of gender ideology addressed the crowd at the National Conservative Conference, explaining the effect that gender-affirming care has had on individuals and families, and what can be done to protect future generations of children.The panel consisted of Jay Richards, William E. Director of the Heritage Foundation’s Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Life, Religion, and Family; Dr. Miriam Grossman , child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist; Kelsey Bolar, Senior Policy Analyst at the Independent Women’s Forum; and Terry Schilling, President of the American Principles Project.Speaking first was Richards, who described to the crowd exactly what gender ideology is.Richards said that half of his job is persuading people that “it really is as awful and as crazy as it seems to be.””Gender ideology is so extreme, so anti-human… anti-biology, that people tend to think I must be misunderstanding or this must just be something that happens …

NY Times Blames Refusal to Teach America is Racist for Complaints by Disabled Students

Sometimes I’m not sure if the education beat at the New York Times might not be worse than its foreign policy. And I’m not just talking about the paper’s prolonged antisemitic campaign against religious Jewish education.

Here’s a straightforward issue. Complaints by disabled students and their parents are high. So the New York Times blames Trump and the refusal by some schools to incorporate racist critical race theory texts and graphic sexual content for the problem.

Strife in the Schools: Education Dept. Logs Record Number of Discrimination Complaints – New York Times

The New York Times leads with claims of racism. It briefly concedes that, the “majority of complaints in the past year, as in previous years, allege discrimination against students with disabilities — a population whose plight became more visible during the pandemic when schools drew federal scrutiny for failing to serve …

Times Square Terrorist: A Broken Family and a Conversion to Islam

Like most cults, Islamic converts are recruited from the ranks of broken people who are disoriented, uncertain, and have lost a sense of purpose in their lives.

In today’s article, “Three Muslim Knife Attacks on NYPD Officers in 8 Years”, I noted that two of those three attackers were converts to Islam.

The latest Times Square attacker was a white kid from Maine.

Trevor Bickford, 19, had taken the train down from Wells, Maine: a town of less than 10,000 souls.

How does a kid from Wells find Islam? That part is still open to question, but the origins, like that of a lot of school shooters, appear to lie with a broken family.

Bickford, of Wells, Maine, is believed to have “found religion” in recent years following the death of his father, Tom, from an overdose in 2018 at the age of 41. The teen’s father played a “very active” role in the lives of his three …
