Illuminating Pathways To a Healthy Brain

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a medically unexplained disorder. Patients afflicted with CFS often report severe fatigue, flu-like symptoms, and neuropsychological impairments, which can include mental “fogginess”, decreased concentration, poor memory, low motivation, diminished mood, and increased duration of sleep. Dr. Henderson has recently published a clinical protocol that dramatically improves the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. In fact, some of his patients have been completely cured. Dramatic improvement in your Chronic Fatigue symptoms is a phone call away 800-315-9630 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that between 1 and 4 million Americans have CFS, but less than 20% have actually been correctly diagnosed. The diagnosis of CFS is usually not made until fatigue has been present for at least six months, is unrelieved by bed rest, and is accompanied by cognitive symptoms, such as memory impairment...

Depression

Depression is a profound problem in American and worldwide. Depression is more than “having a bad day” or “feeling blue”. It is a long-lasting experience of low mood, loss of enjoyment in life, loss of interest, low energy, changes in sleep and/or appetite, and a decrease in one’s ability to think clearly (cognition). Many people with depression experience extreme distress and anguish. They may struggle each day to get up and function. They may even struggle daily to stay alive – to resist suicidal urges.

Often family and friends cannot appreciate the depth of pain and suffering that depression can cause. “Pull yourself up by your bootstraps” or “Get over it” are familiar phrases. If it was that simple, then depression would not be such an...

Bipolar Disorder

Differentiating ADHD from Bipolar Disorder has been an important area of concern, given the negative impact of medications for ADHD in those with an untreated mood disorder. Some hypothesize that stimulant medication exposure can permanently alter the course of Bipolar Disorder in certain children. In addition, atomoxetine, FDA-approved for the treatment of ADHD, has been clinically found to be a potent mood destabilizer. In 2004, Drs. Henderson and Hartman found that roughly 33% of children and adolescents became mood disregulated on atomoxetine. In 2008, Europe warning labels for atomoxetine added mania, aggression, and hallucinations as dangerous side effects. No changes have been made to the American warning labels. It is concerning that the checklist of symptoms for ADHD is almost the same as that of Bipolar Disorder in children and adolescents. What if your child’s clinician guesses wrong?  ...

Anxiety & OCD

Anxiety is an exaggeration of the normal mental and physical sensations of fear. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, and uneasiness. Anxiety also can produce physical symptoms, such as trembling, upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea, headache, chest pain, trouble breathing, irregular heartbeats, muscle tension, and sleep disturbance. These physical symptoms are particularly likely during severe anxiety or panic attacks. While everyone normally experiences some small degree of anxiety in stressful situation, it is when anxiety becomes overwhelming or one changes their daily routine to avoid anxiety-producing situations (e.g., social situations) that it can be considered an Anxiety Disorder.        Approximately 27% of Americans suffer from one anxiety disorder or another. These includes Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (see below), Separation Anxiety Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.   Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a chronic...
