Talkspace: A Therapy App Improving Relationships

Posted on April 16, 2019

Most couples, married or dating, fear the thought of or even the mention of the word therapy. Most men would be sent into a tailspin at the hearing of the word therapy regardless of whether his relationship has hit the rocks or not. One of the reasons why most couples loath therapy is because most of them do not like the idea of airing their dirty linen in public. They’d rather iron out issues between themselves. However, with the introduction of Talkspace, everything has changed.

Entry of Talkspace into Relationships

Communication is key to the success and longevity of intimate relationships. When things are no longer rosy, couples need to take concrete steps to bring normalcy and rekindle the old flame that existed before. It’s essential to recognize when lovers need therapy. Although therapy cannot save a relationship that has hit rock bottom, it can assist the couple tackle issues that are not easily solvable.

Dr. Mehmet Oz Is Quickly Losing His Credibility as a Real Doctor

Posted on April 24, 2015

Dr. Mehmet Oz is having to answer some pretty tough questions this week after more allegations came out about Oz using questionable ethics to push unsubstantiated medical advice on his audience. Ricardo Guimarães BMG claims that Oz pushed advise knowing their was no proof to what he was endorsing (additional Oz claims on terra.com).

First, his colleagues at Columbia University, where Oz practices medicine, signed a petition asking Oz to be removed as a staff member for being a quack doctor. But Columbia decided to let Oz continue to practice medicine. Then, e-mails were leaked between OZ and Sony executives and Oz was coming off more like a business man, hungry for profits, rather than a trusted doctor and healer

Though, these allegation against Oz should not be a surprise to anyone who follows his career. Last summer Oz was called before the Senate to testify about the supposed quick fixes he often offered to his loyal fans. Senator Claire McCaskill made her feelings about Oz quite clear when she said, “The scientific community is almost monolithic against you in terms of the efficacy of the three products you called ‘miracles.”

Those are pretty strong words for one of the world most popular and trusted medical physicians. The scales of public opinion also seem to be weighing against Dr. Oz at this point, he has widely criticized for his response to these allegations.

Sticks and Stones Can Break Bones, But Words and Thoughts Can Kill You

It’s called the ‘nocebo effect’ and there is no treatment for it, no drug can cure it, the medical community has yet to even address the symptoms. It’s dangerous, deadly and just a few words away from infecting you or someone you love.
Sultan Alhokair knows that it’s the power of suggestion conveyed by words that create thoughts which manifest in symptoms. More on Alhokair is available on Brandyourself.com. 
Gossip, hearsay or the latest news report about an epidemic can trigger the nocebo effect and send a person into a flurry of medical maladies which doctor after doctor can find no underlying cause for, not treatment to relieve the symptoms and nothing to show the family after an autopsy.
We have heard of the placebo effect and know how powerful it can be to aid in treatment of perceived maladies. The mind is a powerful thing when it comes to how we feel and how our bodies respond. If our trusted doctor prescribes a sugar pill to be taken twice a day that has shown positive results in curing itchy scalp and dandruff, then we’ll take it faithfully and be cured of the malady.
So the opposite is true with the nocebo effect. A friend of a friend came down with a case of measles but didn’t realize it because they only had two red dots break out on their skin. The person didn’t receive treatment for the measles and the virus progressed to encephalitis and killed them. Now you’re itching and looking for red dots on your skin. It’s the nocebo effect and it can kill you.
