BETTER BRAIN, MIND & BODY HEALTH--PREVENT VIOLENCE

5-11-16  This is an addition to the 5-10-16  post below.

Greetings, Ruth White, founder and executive director of The Academy for Scholastic and Personal Success and all—

Your 475 word, “Proactive programs prevent violence” column in the 5-11-16 Gazette promoted The Academy for Scholastic and Personal Success and its focuses on proactively guiding students toward productive citizenship by surrounding them with positive models of color, and teaching history and cultural information that provides a platform explaining why they should achieve and excel in school.  Whew!

Since you didn’t  state how much violence the cited proactive programs prevented, or that you expected them to prevent,  Iowalive net workers filled the voids with the following numbers and chart—prepared with Iowalive’s proprietary algorithms and database.  Anyone claiming to have better numbers is asked to provide them.

The Academy for Scholastic and Personal Success programs most likely reduced acts of violence by 3% in the past 5 years in Cedar Rapids.   For comparison, raising the deficient neurotransmitter levels of  Dopamine, Acetylcholine, GABBA and Serotonin  by 30% and healthfully balancing them, for the students you work with, should reduce Cedar Rapids  acts of violence by at least 25% in 5 years.  The following chart is presented to show what Iowalive is talking about and to expand the discussion in the post below.

EFFECTIVE, PROFESSIONAL PR ACTIONERS OF THE EDGE EFFECT BOOK ETC. SHOULD NOT FIND THIS CHART SURPRISING

AND THEY LIKELY HAVE, OR COULD, RAISE AND BALANCE THE NEUROTRANSMITTERS TO REDUCE ACTS OF VIOLENCE AS CITED ABOVE

WHY HAVEN’T RESEARCHERS PREPARED AND PROVIDED SUCH A CHART?

WHY HAVEN’T NEWSPAPER EDITORS ASKED FOR SUCH A CHART?

Normal Refers to Healthy Neurotransmitter Levels

Chart prepared with Iowalive’s proprietary algorithms and database.  Anyone claiming to have better numbers is asked to provide them.

No one has refuted the post below nor has anyone claimed to have better numbers.   But Iowalive firmly believes you and Dan Strellner, CEO of AbbeHealth, are honestly trying to make improvements in people’s lives.  And there  is no argument about the need for making and quantifying substantial improvements. 

Sincerely,

BETTER BRAIN, MIND & BODY HEALTH

5-10-16

Greetings, Dan Strellner, CEO of AbbeHealth,  and all--

Your 740 word Time to integrate physical and behavioral health care column in the May 8 Cedar Rapids Gazette contained the following 3 high integrity paragraphs. 

The health care environment in our country is changing rapidly as we strive to provide care that results in better outcomes while controlling costs. One of the best ways to accomplish these objectives is the movement toward Integrated Health Care models. This approach requires a high degree of collaboration and communication among all types of health care professionals and addresses the needs of the whole person rather than any one particular diagnosis. Through community partnerships and affiliations, we can better systematically and cost-effectively treat the whole person.

The integration of behavioral health and primary care is an example of such an approach. While mental illness affects a significant percentage of our population, many health care systems have neglected mental health care for decades because of poor reimbursement, safety concerns and the stigma associated with mental illness.

In addition, payment systems and the infrastructure for treating mental illness vs. medical conditions have existed in silos, thereby facilitating and reinforcing the stigmas associated with mental illness.

Those 3 paragraphs  indicated you likely had read Dr. Braverman’s “The Edge Effect Book” about the brain, neurotransmitters and whole body health!  If you read the book, you should find the following Iowalive prepared charts of high interest and significance.   No one has claimed to have better charts—or any such charts at all.

Dr. Braverman penetrated the silos and left nothing to chance for people wanting to prepare themselves for beneficial discussions with their medical doctors and health care providers.  His book provides do at home self-tests to determine a person’s 4 neurotransmitter levels, corrective diets, supplements and prescription drugs to restore balance to the neurotransmitters that are out of balance and causing health problems.

DISASTROUSLY LOW AND FALLING NUMBER OF AMERICANS HAVING BALANCED (HEALTHY) BRAIN NEUROTRANSMITTER LEVELS

NORMAL REFERS TO HEALTHFULLY BALANCED NEUROTRANSMITTERS—DOPAMINE, ACETYLCHOLINE,  GABBA & SEROTONIN

Numbers were derived using Iowalive's  proprietary algorithms and database.

Anyone claiming to have better numbers is asked to provide them.

DOPAMINE RELATED SYMPTOMS LISTED IN DR. BRAVERMAN’S BOOK

 

ACETYLCHOLINE  RELATED SYMPTOMS & CONDITIONS LISTED IN DR. BRAVERMAN’S BOOK

Iowalive net workers have similar charts for GABBA and SEROTONIN neurotransmitters—and also for several groups of Americans.   Your column touched the tip of the disastrous American ill health iceberg.  In reality, it is similar to Iowa’s and the nation’s disastrous public schools. 

But the good neurotransmitter news is once they are effectively treated and balanced, much better health and productivity are gained!  This of course can include energy level, memory, taste and smell—regardless of a person’s age.
