Hooponopono is a Hawaaiian healing technique

Hew Len apparently cleared a ward (healed them) of mentally ill inmates (plus the hospital benefitted too apparently)

using paraphrasing i think remotely (not in person) "i love you, please forgive me, im sorry, thankyou" (google to confirm exactly what he did)

I cant guarantee this technique helps (ive tried it but not much) -
**not medical advice** not a replacement for other healing modalities
just a headsup for you to use your intuition, your good judgement as to what to do with this information

Sleep experts say that most mental illness is due to poor, and little, sleep. To get the sleep you get at the coast when the wind blows in from the sea just heat salt water in an oil burner overnight. In just five nights insomnia is cured and this takes with it the symptoms of mental illness.

got cut off below:

"The (mental disorder) diagnosis is based on arbitrary symptom lists that are non-specific and almost always gleaned from self-report and pure speculation. We have no way of objectively validating anything" Dr. John Sorboro, Psychiatrist

"...there exists absolutely no independent test to confirm a (mental disorder) diagnosis, i.e. no blood tests, no urine analysis, no MRI test, no CT scan test..." Dr. David Stein, Psychologist

(regarding some objective diagnostic test for any mental disorder) "Not only is there not any definitive test, there's not any even a slightly useful clinical test" Dr. Colin A. Ross, Psychiatrist

'Health Guru'---One quarter of the American public has a mental disorder? Are you out of your mind? Of course that's using the unproven theoretical subjective diagnoses of a single field----Psychiatry---and their approx. 400 mental disorders that they have created to label people with.

Can you say 'monopoly' regarding human mentality and emotions and feelings and society as a huge experimental institution?

As of 2004 Health Canada advised that...."SSRI's and other newer antidepressants carry stronger warnings...that patients of all ages taking these drugs may experience behavioral and/or emotional changes that may put them at increased risk of self-harm or harm to others".

."...when they go to see a physician and they have anxiety, depression, or even bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, there's just no evidence for that (that the person has a biochemical imbalance in -the brain)..." Dr. Peter Breggin, Psychiatrist

.“There are no objective tests in Psychiatry---no X-ray, laboratory, or exam finding that says definitively that someone does or does not have a mental disorder.” Dr. Allen Frances, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry

"All these (psychoactive) drugs are very very similar to illicit or illegal drugs, except more dangerous" Dr. Bruce Levine, Psychologist

"The ('mental disorder') diagnosis is based on arbitrary symptom lists that are non-specific and almost always gleaned from self-report and pure speculation. We have no way of obje

I am a current Mental Health and Human Services student, and lately I have been looking into the idea that the American society its self is causing mental health problems. I say this because people from other societies seem to be in good mental health until they start living in the American society. A big part of this seems to be linked to the idea that families and societies are closely knit in other parts of the world, but not in the US. It makes sense to me if you look at the simple fact of self-help groups. Groups are always the most effective at helping each other, but they must be formed in the American society, where they are a automatic part of almost all other societies.

My daughter is a social worker and deals with this on a daily basis. She has stated many times that this is an area that needs lots of attention and research.
