The cofounder of the holistic lifestyle website DailyOM presents a gentle and accessible step-by-step guide to moving from excessive reliance on medications to fundamentally healing yourself through four pillars of natural wellness. Madisyn Taylor was plagued by depression and anxiety, suffering from chronic physical problems that left her desperate for solutions. Spending decades searching for answers, she first turned to the medical community, which put her on a rollercoaster course of numerous doctors, tests, and an unhealthy reliance on medications that left her numb and lifeless. With her happiness and future on the line, she then made the decision to become unmedicated, reaching out to the natural, holistic health realm. And after years of practice and research, Madisyn developed an integrative wellness program that put her back in the driver’s seat of her health, and ultimately, her life. Unmedicated is her thoughtful account of how she broke free from binding mental chains and physical ailments to be happy, healthy, and productive; it is also a guide for you to apply her practical techniques to your own healing journey. Madisyn offers a daily program of easy-to-follow actions based on four pillars that will build a lifelong foundation for health: clear your mind; strengthen your body; nurture your spirit; and find your tribe. Whether you want to be happy and stay happy, find relief from depression and anxiety, or heal and create a healthy change, Unmedicated is a gentle, compassionate, and achievable path that empowers you to take back your life and live fully.
The writings in this book are very real feelings that have been felt by me. They are real emotions that have gone through and still go through from time to time. As I have said to all of the people who in my life I have come to love, when you read these words know that I wrote them when my mind was in darkness, my heart felt cold and all I wanted was to knock on deaths door. Read this book with an open mind and heart, I myself the writer suffer from depression and am a diagnosed bi-polar. What I thought yesterday is so different from today.
The second in a four-part series, COTUM V2: School reads like a self-written psych report, detailing chronic underachievement, perpetual inattention and endless tales of teacher torment. Focusing on school-based stories of inattention and calculated defiance, expect the unexpected in this laugh-out-loud summary of school in the 1980’s. Along the way, lockers are violated, field trips go bad, languages are mangled, teachers are pranked and unspeakable stunts are pulled with apples and squirrels.
There have been books about ADHD before, but nothing quite like this funny ebook series. Undiscovered author Benjamin Tomes outlines the distinct line between discovery and origin as he details a childhood impacted by ADHD in a world not yet familiar with the disorder. Many have treated ADHD as a pandemic that sprang from nowhere, sapping the attention spans of scores of school-aged children. Nothing could be further from the truth, yet few have delved into our past to examine instances of the disorder before it was recognized by modern medicine. This humorous memoir entertains while it recounts life in the 1970's and 1980's, before anyone had ever heard of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In his four part humorous memoir entitled Confessions of the Unmedicated Mind, Tomes provides an unprecedented firsthand account of ADHD. His take on a childhood impacted by the focus disorder and dysfunctional family is as hilarious as it is poignant, albeit not for the faint of heart. Despite home tumult and academic failure, Tomes would go on to become an award winning coach and successful teacher, providing an interesting perspective on an unlikely ascent from rural miscreant to urban legend. Set primarily in the small towns of Northern Wisconsin, Tomes uses heavy handed humor to deliver blunt force drama drawn from his personal war on boredom. His birth to twenty-one account is broken into four key areas and the series is issued in volumes along those lines. Volume 1: Home Home reads like a self-written psych report, detailing family idiosyncrasies, dalliances with girls, experimentation with alcohol and meandering through life without regard; as well as a potential road to redemption. Along the way, fish are thrown at tourists, prank calls are made, children are led astray in church, a bowling alley is defiled and socially challenged relatives are antagonized. Nothing is sacred as Tomes spins a classic piece of humorous non-fiction with his true stories of bad behavior. In vivid detail, Tomes recounts his dysfunctional childhood, the genetic roots of his ADHD, the influence of ill behaved cousins and extended family, his parent's awkward religious beliefs, and a laundry list of bad behavior, stunts, pranks, and a life heavily influenced by a chronic intolerance of boredom.

Recent years have witnessed major advances in the study of neuroscience which have increased our understanding of the relationship between cerebral processes and behavioural, cognitive and emotional disorders. This series aims to monitor important research developments in the field of biological psychiatry and their relevance to clinical practice. Since the 1950s there has been significant progress in our understanding of the neurobiology of schizophrenia. This important volume illustrates these new developments, particularly in terms of pharmacotherapeutics, pathogenesis and research methodology. Eminent scientists from around the world discuss conceptual issues, epidemiology, genetic analysis of psychotic disturbances, neuropathological changes and brain imaging studies, atypical neuroleptics, psychopharmacology of schizophrenia, neuropeptide involvement, neurophysiology and information processing in schizophrenia. Also highlighted are the similarities between childhood developmental disorders and schizophrenia, as well as the relatively neglected area of biological factors in childhood psychosis and their predictive value in adult psychopathology. Psychiatrists, neuroscientists, pharmacologists, psychologists, physicians and general practitioners will find this authoritative state-of-the-art review important and informative reading.
The book reviews research and clinical observations on this timely topic. The authors look at attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder, all of which are common among youths and often share similar symptoms of impulse control problems.
