The Truth Perspective: The Myth of Symptoms: Why Most People Are Actually Mentally Ill

Anxiety
For many people the term mental health is synonymous with the absence of symptoms. With this outlook our mental health rests in positive emotion, our ability to cope, maintain emotional balance, and adjust to the world and society. Viewing mental health in such a way leaves little room for good or evil, high or low, or better or worse ways of adjusting, or of experiencing certain symptoms. So what would a psychology of value look like, and how mentally healthy are we when viewed through that psychology? These questions were the subject of Kazimierz Dabrowski's formidable intellect over the course of his entire career.

So join us today, on the Truth Perspective, as we use Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration to explore and add real depth to the concept of mental health, also utilizing insights gained from our discussions on the hypnotic power of the crowd, Paul and the Stoics, and experiments into the nature of consciousness, today we're taking a new look at what mental health really is for us in this crazy, upside-down world.

The Health & Wellness Show: IV Vitamin C: The Miracle Cure You're Not Supposed to Know About

Vitamin-C-Infusionen

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient obtained from food and supplements. It is frequently the go-to supplement used for viral infections such as the common cold and flu. One downside with oral vitamin C supplementation is that only a small percentage is absorbed by the body and large doses can cause gastrointestinal upset making its efficacy hit or miss. Enter IV (intravenous) vitamin C. This master antioxidant can be absorbed at 100% when given IV. Vitamin C given by this route is not just effective for viral and bacterial illnesses but can also be used to treat a wide range of ailments not limited to Lyme Disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, burns, wounds and various types of cancer -- yes, Cancer -- thought to have a poor prognosis.

Vitamin C has a long track record of being beneficial to one's health so why isn't it used in every hospital in the world? It's cheap and effective with few side effects but it is still seen as a 'fringe' treatment and its use is actively blocked by mainstream medical professionals.

Join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss this miracle molecule and why it should become one of the main tools in your health arsenal. Also, stay tuned at the end of the show for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be excessive licking or grooming in cats.

NewsReal: Yellow Vest Protests, Brexit Farce - Revolutionary Climate in Western Europe?

newsreal yellow vests brexit
Is France going through revolution 2.0? La Terreur followed in the wake of the 1789 French revolution, so is last week's extraordinary coincidence of an 'ISIS/Islamist terror attack' at a critical moment in the French state's handling of the Gilets Jaunes' popular insurrection an indicator of what's likely to happen next? History may not repeat, Mark Twain said, but it sure rhymes.

Speaking of extraordinary coincidences, what is up with both France and the UK undergoing profound national crises at the same time? The Brexit chaos looks like its settling on the prediction we made two years ago: they're going to re-run the in/out referendum (then properly rig the result this time).

In this episode of NewsReal, Joe & Niall discuss the brewing revolution in western Europe, the latest Russiagate nothing-burger, and the American government's 'new' strategy for countering Russia and China in Africa.

The Health & Wellness Show: Water, Water Everywhere But Not a Drop to Drink

Students Karen Vallejo (background) and Ashley Garcia (foreground) examine triclosan extracts from plant tissues.
Water is the transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans. It also happens to be the main constituent fluid of most living organisms and an absolutely essential part of life. No known life form, including humans, can possibly survive without it. But what happens when our water becomes so polluted it's actually less harmful to go without?

Heavy metals, fracking chemicals, pharmaceutical waste, industrial pollutants, microplastics, agricultural chemicals, dangerous micro-organisms - it seems there's no limit to the amount of toxic stuff we find in our water. Gone are the days of pristine streams and clean lakes you could directly drink from. Now we need complicated filter systems just to get a drinkable glass of what we all need to live. And we in the modernized world are the lucky ones!

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness Show as we talk about this vital resource that the human race has managed to mess up for the entire planet. Is there a way out of this madness?

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, where she talks about how to get your cat to drink more water.

NewsReal: Mass Immigration And Climate Change: A Perfect Storm

newsreal climate migration
There are two major grievances that are motivating the ongoing 'Gilets Jaunes' protests in France (and similar protests in other European countries over the past few years). One is the the specter of mass immigration - 'accidentally' inflated by 17 years of the Global War on Terror - and the other is French and EU government policies aimed at 'preventing climate change'.

In their arrogance, however, European elites have decided to double down on these massively unpopular polices by:

(a) encouraging mass migration into Europe - with Macron currently in Morocco where he will sign the UN Compact on Migration, where signatory states are required to formalize and legalize structures for accepting and financing large numbers of migrants, and (b) implementing an EU/globalist 'ecology tax'.

So the question is: what do climate/earth changes and mass migration have in common, and what do governments know that they are not telling the people?

On this week's NewsReal with Joe & Niall, we reveal why the elites' view of the people and the people's view of the elites are so out of sync, and why the discrepancy is signalling an impending showdown of, literally, biblical proportions.

The Truth Perspective: Herd Behavior: What Gustav Le Bon's Classic Book Can Teach Us About 'The Crowd'

madness of crowds
Today on the Truth Perspective we discuss the French polymath Gustave Le Bon's most famous work, The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind. Le Bon was a physician, soldier, and author of numerous works ranging from anthropology, medicine, physiology, and even physics, where he is credited with anticipating Einstein's theory of relativity.

But it was defeat during the Franco-Prussian War, the radical mentality of the Paris Commune of 1871, and his extensive studies of peoples in Europe, Asia and North Africa that gave him that unique insight into the nature of crowds which, when he published them, resulted in a book which has been described as "one of the most influential books of social psychology ever written."

The Crowd may have been an instant bestseller in the late 19th century but it remains just as relevant today. From radical Islamists in Syria to Antifa in the US, and most recently the Yellow Vests storming Paris, Le Bon provides us key insights regarding the crowd's susceptibility to suggestion, the individual's loss of control, and its potential to be radicalized in the name of senseless violence. If nothing else this knowledge can help to keep us moored while others are swept away in the tide.

The Health & Wellness Show: News of the Weird: Vaccinated Transgender GMO Babies Drink Glyphosate And Go To Jail For Scientific Discoveries

vaccines
Health and wellness news is getting stranger and stranger as humanity is thrust into a dystopian future. Changes that beggar belief are occurring right before our eyes. Scientists are arrested for doing science. Rogue researchers are creating genetically modified babies. Big Business is hellbent on poisoning the food supply. Big Pharma is permitted to kill and maim at will with their biological products. Ideologically possessed nutjobs are supported in convincing children that they were born in the wrong bodies.

This isn't some B-movie horror flick. This is but a small sampling of the utter madness of life on Earth in 2018.

Join us as we delve into the weirdness and stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment on GMOs and their effects on pets.

NewsReal: Révolution Jaune? France Revolts Against Macron

France MAcron yellow vests protests
As the gilets jaune movement continues in France, with protests entering their third week, the French government's response has been to hold firm with proposed increases in fuel and other taxes, and to task anti-riot police with beating back protesters in the heart of Paris. While this movement may also peter out like many before it, the scale, intensity and cross-party grassroots support for the 'yellow vests' speaks to the general discontent with corruption in France, and Emmanuel Macron in particular.

This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall discuss the violent stand-off between elites and working people in France, the 'Ukrainian' Navy's provocation near Russia's new Crimean Bridge, the latest lunacy from the legacy media regarding the Russiagate affair, and some of the antics at this year's G20 Summit.

The Truth Perspective: How To Survive A Totalitarian Nightmare: The Psychology Of Tyranny

kremlin leadership USSR
What is it like to live in a country with a brutal, totalitarian government? According to Dr. Andrew Lobaczewski, the only way to truly know is to actually experience it. Literary accounts and news reports can provide some data, but even that will only be theoretical. Actually experiencing it is something else entirely: a punch in the gut that can cause anxiety, depression, and PTSD. But there's one other way to get an idea: a first-hand experience with malevolence at the hands of someone with a severe personality disorder.

Today on the Truth Perspective we discuss chapter 6 of Lobaczewski's book Political Ponerology: "Normal People Under Pathocratic Rule". The reason people who have lived with a pathological individual know what it's like to live under a pathocracy is because the two experiences are analogous: they both involve personality-disordered individuals in positions of authority. And without an understanding of psychopathology, we can't understand totalitarianism.

In this chapter, Lobaczewski discusses the experience of living under pathocratic rule: the deformations of normal human psychology that result, as well as the skills and values that develop after years of terror. The current polarization we are experiencing in our own society is not a good development, but if we don't do something to stop where it is leading us, the time will come when both sides of the political spectrum are equally terrorized. Ironically, it may only be a real pathocracy that will bring both sides together: a solidarity bred by shared suffering that seems unimaginable to us now.
