"When we (@Metabolic_Mind) mention mental illness we're referring to severe
#depression #bipolar disorder or
#schizophrenia. But everything we say also may have applied to #ADD #OCD #anxiety moderate depression, #PTSD and more." (1/12)
@Metabolic_Mind I have seen it SIGNIFICANTLY improve or lead to remission in literally all of these disorders in my private practice and via my online Brain Fog Recovery Program. (2/12) #therapists #counselors #mentalhealthcounselor
@Metabolic_Mind It's ok to have hope that you can feel better. When you are suffering from any of these disorders, hope is a little scary. You don't want to be disappointed. Sometimes it's easier to practice acceptance of how you are feeling. (3/12) #hope #spoons #chronicillness
@Metabolic_Mind But I want you to know this is not some weird fad. This is not woo-woo. This is some hard-core #science playing out in people's lives. This is an evidence-based treatment for mental illness (4/12) #research
@Metabolic_Mind Sometimes, the first steps are just getting your head around
1) the possibility you can reduce your symptoms
2) allowing yourself to imagine what your life might look like without your symptoms
3) getting the courage to explore who you might be without those symptoms (5/12)
@Metabolic_Mind So if you want to start exploring this as a treatment, that's ok.
It's ok to hope.
When you are ready to explore this treatment, it will be there for you. (6/12)
@Metabolic_Mind I am happy to help you find providers through various directories trained in this therapy. Here are a few to explore - (7/12)
@Metabolic_Mind Don't start it willy-nilly if you are on any meds! SERIOUSLY. That can be dangerous. But let's find you prescribers willing to work with this metabolic treatment for the brain. (11/12) #metabolicpsychiatry
@Metabolic_Mind Let's find you the support you need in order to adopt the lifestyle and eating changes that bring the full power of this type of therapy to your fingertips. You are powerful and I firmly believe it is your birthright to feel kick ass. #justsayin (12/12)

Apparently, some of you consider yourself experts on cancer treatment but don't have any idea about up-and-coming data on the use of a #ketoenic diet as an adjunct for #cancer treatments. (1/9)
This thread holds some links to researchers talking about using ketogenic diets as an adjunct treatment for some cancers. People way smarter than me about the subject, and quite frankly probably better educated than you on the topic. 🤷 (2/9)
I don't want you all discouraging someone from asking their oncologist about it when it could be instrumental in saving their life or quality of life. That's not cool. Some of you need to check yourselves. #ethics (3/9)

I have had more than one female client between the ages of 14-20s who after receiving months of psychotherapy were not improving. I provided resources for actual informed consent they should have had access to in the beginning from their doctor. (2/4)
They decided to stop temporarily. Their suicidal ideation and mood disturbances vanished. So do many of the comorbid "relationship problems" with parents and partners) vanished. This needs to be on every parent and teen's radar. It's no joke, and it's very real. 3/4
