That's how the MCAT publisher's and the WHO and APA generate revenue.

    @Ian Weinberg A most fascinating case you have presented here..these days (especially) having what the early Cognitive-Behavioral theorists/therapists termed an ongoing "GSM" conglomerate that's gone completely on "autopilot" is...well, it's amazing (and I don't think coincidental) that infiltration had reached the cerebellum.

    GSM --it refers to a baseline, persistent pattern in which everything that is attenrionally sensed, experienced, combined with selected memories (thereby perceived/cognitively concluded), towards generation of subsequent behaviors --a pattern, that (on the "best of days") is:
    1) (G)lobal; meaning that it's applied to everything; all the time,
    2) (S)table; meaning that this is the "default experiencing-of-one's-life" (interestingly, there is evidence which suggests that learning which has become "AUTOMATIC" have actually become "NEUROLOGICAL ALGORITHMS "...and these algorithms are "filed in the cerebellum ") and,
    3) (N)egative; meaning always "BAD" --always seen in the worst light, always something that your behavior (anything you do or say) CANNOT "FIX".
    Add to that the very real external/SM amplified "events" that characterize the present "Nationalist/xenophobic" geopolitical zeitgeist...and
    GSM + Genetic predisposition + "bad" sociopolitical environment = disease (reaching The cerebellum) ..."filing cabinet" of automatic, pre-programmed algorithms. Potentially deadly ...yet also reprogrammable!

    #9 Thanks @Sara Jacobovici The patients that I perform surgery upon are all fully evaluated from a medical and psychological perspective, pre-operatively. Since I'm both surgeon and seasoned coach, I've selected the patients that I believe will have the most optimal outcome (based on my own data). In the earlier days I would use my online diagnostic (psychometric) to do the evaluation. This is no longer needed as I gained experience in the profiling. Obviously this doesn't apply to the essential, life-saving procedures.

    Great piece @Ian Weinberg. I really appreciate you outlining the whole process your patient goes through, from initial meeting to follow up. I am also glad that you included the amount of time, the 4 years of follow up, that was needed for your patient to achieve the positive and life changing results. I would be curious to know what kind of work (if any) you do with the patient pre surgery. Consistent with your framework of mind/body relationship, I don't have to tell you that how a person enters into surgery psychologically will influence the outcome of the surgery itself. My dad needed bypass surgery back in 1986 and we were lucky enough to have the best surgeon. The surgeon entered my dad's room prior to scheduling the surgery and asked to speak with him alone (myself, my mom and brother were with him at the time). After about half an hour, the surgeon called us back into the room and said that he has agreed to schedule the surgery. We shared with him our confusion as we had already assumed that he had agreed to do the surgery. The surgeon replied that first he agreed from a medical/physical point of view, but that then he had to meet the patient and get a sense of the patient's mental or emotional state and what the patient's expectations were of the surgery and of the surgeon. He said that he got from my dad what he needed to know that there was a very high probability that the surgery will be successful. And indeed, the outcome was very successful. As well, I have worked with individuals pre surgery who were afraid of the general anesthesia and helped them through that process. Thanks, as always Ian, for a very important post.

    #3 @Harvey Lloyd you've nailed the essence of the dynamic. Yes indeed our life narratives are a product of our nature-nurture heritages. And if there's been significant deprivation this will create limiting beliefs in our narratives. It's also unfortunate that we all settle into a comfort zone and accept the status quo for what it is. It's only with life trauma's, emotional or physical (the burning platforms), that we're asked to engage and question who we are and where we're at. But then only a relatively small percentage can make the break and transcend limiting beliefs (usually with professional coaching assistance). Thanks for engaging and giving your feedback. We're all after all, students in the University of Life!

    @Ian Weinberg this was a fascinating case study. In an effort to understand the concepts you have laid out i would like to reflect what i read. I want to understand these concepts in more lay terms.

    I picked up that stress over long periods of time can cause physical illness. Also that during our formative years we develop our sense of self that is the basis of our adult life in many instances. Given this building process out from our formative years, our life tends to become a self-fulfilling prophecy of our fundamental sense of self. Finally that given the right setting we can transcend the past through self-analysis up to and including coaching.

    The burning question, if i have stated your position even close, how can one recognize their dilemma from within the world they live? The tumor, in this case, shocked Jenny into a state of reverie where she was able to see and understand your discussions from a different perspective. I ask this question only because i have several folks in my life who are super humans and just don't know it. They seem to be bound by past experience in a continuous loop.

    Not really wanting an answer here, as it would complicated. Really wanted to say thank you for reinforcing some ideas of stress, professionally. Please though, if i am not on the right planet, set me straight.

    No puedo negar que a veces, sobre todo en procesos psicóticos agudos, no queda más remedio que prescribir medicamentos. Pero yo siempre advierto a los pacientes de que estas drogas no los van a curar, que solo tratan síntomas, ramas sueltas que no dejan ver el árbol y mucho menos el bosque. Es cierto que, como las muletas, nos ayudan a caminar cuando nos rompemos una pierna. Pero hay riesgo de adiccion a las muletas y a las medicinas; hay multinacionales que son escuelas patrocinadoras de la patología crónica, de cómo permanecer enfermo sin morir en el empeño. Por eso debemos aprender a escuchar las palabras rotas, persecutorias, abatidas, delirantes o ahogadas y no sucumbir. Afortunadamente, la naturaleza nos ha regalado una gran capacidad de auto-curación y supervivencia en situaciones extremas."

    #44 @Gerald Hecht Had to laugh at your description of your brain cell ganglion, I expect her illusions of grandeur are based on her being legion and not single at all, or having a a name like Gang Lion! I did find her - tripped over her actually, and busted a toe. Mine's called 'Granule'. She's probably been eaten by the cat.
    I've just been studying the links. I remember etanercept and now understand the perispinal injection administration procedure/effect, which I had trouble visualizing without a...er...map? I get it now; the Trendelenburg maneuver and why it would work. Thanks for the tutoring, dude!

    #43 @Lisa Vanderburg If you find my brain cell along the way...that would be so awesome; she calls herself "ganglion"...I learned the hard way to just let her have her way with that one and to ignore the "delusion of grandeur aspect"...oh, and yes; the amazing thing is that the ventricular lining and the parenchyma do communicate... at the very least with regard to pro inflammatory cytokines -- (TNF-a stops "acting all crazy and shuts up") and noradrenergic auto receptors alpha 2 also are reached...and sure enough --this procedure is also working just as dramatically with all of the chronic neuropathic pain syndromes that it's been tested on, and rapid reversal of major depression that is even more dramatic than the ketamine infusion procedure!

    #37 @Lisa Vanderburg intranasal doesn't work; causes severe sinusitis...which could progress to necrosis.
    The mechanism that is allowing Perispinal Administration to work is 1) the particle size of etanercept itself, which allows it to enter the CSF in surrounding the spinal cord WITHOUT having to perform an actual lumbar puncture (Perispinal Administration is actually non-invasive 2) Trendelenburg maneuver gets it into the ventricular system., and 3 ) it doesn't actually cross the BBB (doesn't have to)...it signals neurons and glial cells "on the other side"...fast!

    Okay @Gerald Hecht...you know I'm a slooooooow learner. This is absolutely fascinating (I think)! Just to get it right without pictures, do you mean an interface [of sorts] between para-vascular spaces in the human cerebral cortex - that is your way in? How is that considered non-invasive; not an accusation but you are sweet enough to understand my academic prowess. From that most impenetrable of crossings (unless you're a virus), the BBB with its 400 miles of blood vessels is a bit of a bastard to overcome, no doubt.

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich There are clues as to potential escapes...biochemically, there is the fact that dopamine itself (ironically, and "teasingly" in the context of the Perispinal administration route) IS a neurotransmitter, which, in the periphery, CANNOT CROSS THE BLOOD-BRAIN-BARRIER...most of the "discussion" regarding this consists of avoiding the full discussion and starting another --on the role of peripheral dopamine as a QUITE SPECIFIC regulator of Renal Blood Pressure...whereas the functionality equivalent catecholamines elsewhere in the peripheral circulatory system are epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline). To me, although this is so vague and intuition based as to barely qualify as a hunch...perhaps; there is some sort of (stem cell commonality?) between cells comprising portions of the kidney, and dopaminergic producing neurons in at least one of the 4 dopaminergic circuits in the CNS. We know that the dopamine in the periphery cannot enter the brain. We know that both the brain and periphery contain dopamine. To me that is "strange" --it "feels" like the disconnect there shouldn't just be left "dangling" --dismissed with a shrug (as tonsils and the appendix once were). This could be worth further exploration (in fact, it now seems to have captured my attention). #24
