2.The time day. Credit: Anita Dunn-2011. It determines our level of habits; since during the day, we eat, we worked, we slept, etc. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Dr Jee Hyun Kim. 3.The time year. It makes specific our level of project. In years we finished the studies, we have children, projects, etc.
4.The time century. Mark our existential level, since in a century we are born and we died. As there am saying, the framework of the time, is a structure of fundamental support for our psychic character. If you visualize these four temporary layers, as if they were a defensive barrier as a ” skin psquica” , imaginaros, that the mental disease strikes on that barrier. Whereas the neuroses erode the most superficial layers of the levels existential and vital project, the psychoses at the most abren to deep step of ours ” temporalidad”. They can get to destroy the habits of the person (in many psychoses the patient at night lives and to duer to me by day), forcing to him to a change of reality (delirium). A way to try to maintain to us afloat and to survive as much fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia, is the use of drugs. But when we spoke of drugs, not only I talk about to which they are sold in the pharmacies, but to that car we prescribed to us.
We are going to give to a small stroll by the car medication and its numbers: 1. Against the fatigue: Caffein, sugar or cigarettes 1500 weekly million of drinks with caffein (tea, coffee and drinks of tail) 6 million kilos to the week in sugar 2 million kilos of chocolate to the week 1500 million cigarettes to the week 2. Against the anxiety and depression 120 million spirits to the week 10 weekly million of porros 3. If the thing is put very badly: To the doctor. To pay attention to the following numbers, because as I indicated in Nutrition and Psycotherapy, the continuous pharmaceutical industry rubbing the hands. 540 million tranquilizers to the year 465 million of sleep-inducing annual 824 million antidepressants to the year 10 million visits per year to the psychologist The World-wide Organization of the Health says that the problems of mental health, are becoming the main problem of the 21st century: 1 of 4 people will undergo some problem of mental nature throughout its life and 1 of each 10 will undergo, it during all their life. As you see, there are a great imbalance in our lives due to many years of inadequate nutrition, permanent exhibition to polluting agents and environmental toxins. Most serious, it is than those numbers grow every year and seems impossible to attenuate them. As it said to Marcel Proust ” the true act of the discovery does not consist of finding new earth, but of seeing with new ojos”. We need a new form to think about the mental health, where the paper of the nutrition and the chemical surroundings is included, accepting that both play a decisive role in our form to live. I consider that it is fundamental to combine an optimal nutrition, with a good psycotherapy in a great variety of problems of mental health. In numerous occasions, this combination acts far better that the single drugs; and in addition, without its indirect effect.
