and the insanity of it all
I'm of the opinion that this treatment can be very helpful for managing pain and stress. We know from clinical studies that any placebo can help alleviate pain due to the sheer power of belief. If the best meditation offers is a placebo effect, you still have the possibility of relief at little to no cost. I think this technique can help manage stress and, if used with cognitive behavioral therapy, can probably help people reprogram their thoughts. It's amazing how many false or negative ideas continually flow through the mentally ill mind and those need to be corrected. I definitely wouldn't substitute it for medication or professional treatment but I think it could be an excellent supplement that might give some people the edge they need to stay well without harming their pocketbooks.
I really enjoy comments and hearing from new people but if you are here to complain or challenge my personal thoughts and feelings go elsewhere. How is that for blunt!
