Numb Toes and Aching Soles: Coping with Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy (PN) blights the lives of about 15 million people in the US alone; sadly however, many sufferers and physicians alike don't appear to have even heard of it, let alone be able to treat the symptoms effectively. This horrendously painful condition appears to be one of those 'Cinderella' afflictions which makes an absolute misery of people's lives, as it did the author's, a sufferer of some ten years. In this disorder, the sensory and/or motor nerve cells of the peripheral (outside of the spinal cord) nervous system become damaged, from a wide range of causes, ranging from diseases such as diabetes and AIDS, to common environmental hazards, including toxins, poisons, drugs, nutritional imbalances, medical treatments such as chemotherapy and through repetitive strains caused by common everyday working activities, such as typing (carpal tunnel syndrome).

Overcoming Overeating Conquer your Obsession with Food

|The Fight-Back Response| Dr. Janet Polivy and Dr. Peter Herman have done extensive research at the University of Toronto to demonstrate that the restraints of a diet lead to a binge, regardless of the personality, character, or starting weight of the dieter. Through years of clinical practice we have concluded that dieters are like tightly wound springs - the more restrained their eating, the tighter the spring. Once a dieter goes off his or her diet, the spring releases. The tighter that spring has been wound, the more forceful is its release. The more restrictive the diet, the bigger the binge.

Momma and the Meaning of Life - Tales of Psychotherapy

I am not a psychotherapist, and yet have been spellbound by Dr Yalom's (Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University) masterful storytelling ability.

Born in Washington, DC of parents who immigrated from Russia after the first world war, Dr Yalom lived in an inner city ghetto, where he read voraciously and entered medical school to become a psychiatrist. As he says on his internet site – "Psychiatry proved (and proves to this day) endlessly intriguing, and I have approached all of my patients with a sense of wonderment at the story that will unfold. I believe that a different therapy must be constructed for each patient because each has a unique story. As the years pass, this attitude moves me farther and farther from the center of professional psychiatry, which is now so fiercely driven by economic forces in precisely opposite directions – namely accurate de-individualizing (symptom-based) diagnosis and uniform, protocol-driven, brief therapy for all."
