October Inspired Musings: ADHD, Vaping and ACE's
Does Unresolved Trauma and chronic illness, have your neurological system stuck in Fight, Flight, Freeze? Are ACE's making it harder for your immune system to do it's job?
Teen Vaping: Know The Facts
Early puberty onset is associated with earlier initiation and increased frequency of nicotine and alcohol use in adolescent males and females (Harrell et al., 1998, Patton et al., 2004, Wilson et al., 1994). Today puberty occurs at increasingly earlier ages, up to 3 years earlier than 100 years ago (Gluckman and Hanson, 2006).
Gut Health Is Immune Health
Leaky Gut = Leaky Brain. You must have healthy digestion. You must have 1-3 bowel movements a day. Your stool is not supposed to be super foul smelling. Cut out gluten: bread, pasta, crackers etc. Gut health = Immune Health
Gut Health Is Brain Health
I run a very important lab for gut health called a GI Map. If possible I do nervous system testing for infection first, to confirm findings. Why do I do this? Because Imbalances in flora and bacteria (bad bugs) increase your cravings, make your gut leaky and create focus, impulse and emotional regulation issues.
Know Your WHY's.
I had an intake with an ADHD teen with mood and behavior challenges recently. This is my typical client now: head injuries/concussions (Cerebellum and PFC) processing issues, high IQ though, massive impulse and mood issues, low protein diet, no veggies in diet, sleep issues and often times never properly worked-up.
Communicate. Empathize. Rehabilitate.
The research has shown that if you have experienced trauma, even perceived traumas, it impacts your ability to resist disease. Your immune system is more impaired. You are more like to develop illness, especially autoimmune diseases. This is a problem for a healer like myself, and talk therapy will only go so deep.
Root Cause Issue
I love this image, it's one of the more accurate, albeit overwhelming explanations. We are missing EMF's and then this would illustrate the toxic soup that explains the Why. Why do I feel bad, and struggle, while everyone else seems to be fine? They aren't, you are just the canary in the mine, you are the sensitive one.
What is Integrative Therapy?
I love sitting and talking with clients, we problem solve, we create treatment plans, and we set goals. It's just not enough, to truly address Impulse control, Focus, Motivation and Brain Fog.
Pro Tip Cleanse and Detox
All melatonin is not created equal. Seriously consider liposomal melatonin to not only help with sleep but also detox the brain. I carry good brands at www.tiffanysfit4life.com
in the store. If you have bloating, gut inflammation, the gut can't absorb a pill well.
Check out my recent interview with Spectrum News, the topic is the new Netflix series "Insatiable". The debate is whether this new show, debuting 08/10 is promoting "fat shaming" or "fat-phobia". I was happy to weigh in on this important topic.

Mental and nutritional health
This is a great quote, and one of the many reasons that I integrate mental health and natural/nutritional health. You can’t separate the two!
I wrapped a 90 minute integrative session recently, with a young lady diagnosed previously with Aspergers and Binge Eating Disorder. After a mental health intake, plus a hair analysis, and food sensitivities assessment, I believe that the answer is different.

What about my Mood?
As an Integrative Therapist, the first thing that happens when I start to adjust the food part of my intervention, is fear! A typical client realizes that they have been using food to handle their feelings, when the terror sets in, because certain foods will be boxed out.

This F4L Integrative Clinic Minute by Tiffany Brown-Bush LPC, FDN is about Gratitude. Many clients are frustrated, angry, or disappointed about their weight loss, ability overcome an eating disorder, or their addiction. An important step within their treatment process is a gratitude practice. This video talks about treatment, goal setting, therapy expectations and why gratitude matters.
Black or White Thinking
A common thinking trap is Black or White Thinking. This is also known as All or None Thinking. We unintentionally cheat our ability to experience a great deal of happiness, by engaging in this type of thinking. It's a type of viewing things, as either one way or the other. "A person is either ugly or beautiful!" "A person is either on program or not!"
Just say YES!!
I'm an Integrative Therapist which means that clients will not just discuss their rational and irrational thoughts, but also their lifestyle. Nutrition is a very important part of treatment, and requires accepting that changes are necessary. Client resistance to change must be overcome to reach goals...
What should I expect during a therapy session?
I am a Rational Living Therapist, and we are very concerned with irrational labeling. This explains why I may we disagree with the labeling that results from needing to use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of Mental Disorders. Many of these "diagnoses" actually are only labels for a set of behaviors. However, these labels often create a perception that the client "has" or "suffers from" a "disorder."
