Mindfulness has been found to alter regions of the brain associated with memory & awareness: https://t.co/ndcotXhNQF. But many activities can make brain changes, running, yoga, juggling, etc. there is no special effect to Mindfulness here. Us: https://t.co/CFTtRIymIU
The Psychiatric Times author of the ART (aka EMDR) infomercial, Dr. Wendi Waits, is also a " Master ART Therapist", a COI Psychiatric Times should note. EMDR as pseudoscience: https://t.co/PqEfLAZnq5, & on Quackwatch: https://t.co/i6MURVUfz1. Us: https://t.co/vCyo9ZNPlb.
Psychiatric Times is plugging EMDR as ART: https://t.co/IQcIwH2Zxd. Listed here as pseudoscience: https://t.co/PqEfLAZnq5, EMDR has a long history on Quackwatch: https://t.co/i6MURVUfz1. Us: https://t.co/vCyo9ZNPlb.
Borderline Personality will self-harm, ADHD persons get hyper: https://t.co/gSayzpsaks. There is really no way to differentiate these diagnoses & if a personality disorder is better explained by another disorder, the other disorder takes priority. US: https://t.co/GwwzyYyjaI
CoQ10 is now thought to be an "effective" treatment of bipolar depression: https://t.co/lmszHHrIY2. This is interesting, but only 89 subjects were randomized so that we still need a large confirmatory trial. US: https://t.co/GwwzyYyjaI
Psychiatric Times, great mag, still plugs EMDR: never single/double blind placebo study, is viewed ineffective and over-marketed, selling EMDR courses: https://t.co/PqEfLAHMyx. Also, see this https://t.co/J5SXAxPDy7. Us: https://t.co/1HKbrHrzuS
Dr. Seeman says schizophrenic females did not have flat affect and were social: https://t.co/41wUioqZna. She says low estrogen causes psychosis, could be true, but its only conjecture. Seems her patients probably had a non-schizo psychotic disorder. Us: https://t.co/bYwFMNTDK7
https://t.co/CgpnuNNVNt: doesn’t mention the exclusion criteria for a personality disorder when the criteria can be explained by another psychiatric disorder. I.e., the diagnosis for BPD notes 7 traits that could easily be due to a mood disorder. Us: https://t.co/59gLBhYuMX

Dr. Steven King promotes efficacy of CBT for pain as best: https://t.co/QZzwfBWpnz, but there is no blind placebo-controlled study of CBT vs any other type of psychotherapy. Modesty in conclusion of efficacy is warranted. US: https://t.co/NExjz3T3Z3
Dr. Tasman starts on physicists questioning relativity vs quantum mechanics: https://t.co/Y0sjD2Tuos, leading to what is inner reality in psychotherapy? Dr. Tasman seems removed from understanding Einstein & Bohr's quantum discussions vs human reality. US: https://t.co/NExjz3T3Z3
Dr Moutier lists treatment modalities w/evidence for reducing suicide risk but surprisingly doesn't mention medication for agitation, anxiety, or sleep: https://t.co/5eSWg2sJOk. Neither CBT or DBT have ever had a double-blind placebo controlled study. US: https://t.co/We7OmvxoYF
Only 2 of 265 disorders in DSM-5 have known causes, PTSD & substance abuse: https://t.co/bSc3KukmiK. However, PTSD is still a subjective diagnosis: stress is known, symptoms are unprovable. US: https://t.co/We7OmvxoYF
Dr. Graham says genetics cause catastrophizing leading to anxiety: https://t.co/FuhKznWX7M. So, the symptom of a disorder is also the cause? The therapy they sell treats catastrophizing though. Us: https://t.co/FxEfrGmpKC
Could mania may be caused by beef jerky because of nitrates? https://t.co/p8CPn5zRgU. Could it also happen with hot dogs and bacon? You may not want to eat these products for other health reasons, but the mania-link is still weak at best. Us: https://t.co/FxEfrGE0Ca
