Good Morning to All,
(Note to JM)--
I think you sent me a private note, but for some reason, it was blank when
opened. Please re-send it. I'd love to read it.:)
I do want to offer a small follow-up to my comments last night on this topic...
I neither diagnose nor prescribe from this vantage point. To do so, would be
reckless to the point of being criminal. I offered a couple of general
recommendations about Dave's situation--beginning with a comprehensive
evaluation by qualified health professionals.
As to breathwork.. I think it has immense value for many people, including
myself. When practiced routinely, it can have intense effects on the body and
mind. However, there are indeed conditions wherein breath work is not advised
nor recommended without supervision or monitoring. To include:
--Some cardiac conditions (especially undiagnosed)
-- Hypertensive conditions not well controlled or not advised based on
prescription drug use.
--Psychological traumas or psychiatric conditions unless supervised
--Stroke and /or brain injury patients without supervision
The list goes on.. My point is that mis-information about health conditions
and treatment protocols are pervasive, especially on the internet.
To be clear, I am not at all directing that comment to JM or anyone else
here. I am saying that each individual should seek face-to-face guidance on
any health complaint with a qualified professional, to review treatment options.
I'm off to Asia in a week or so. My best to all here..

Stress the mind is the cause of the OCD.
Please share why you believe this is true.
