The Communication Cure

I think this is my favorite TED talk ever! “The CEO and founder of Intuitive Intelligence, Dr. Neha Sangwan is an Internal Medicine physician and corporate communication strategist empowering healthcare practitioners, organizational leaders and corporate employees in their own self-care. Dr. Sangwan is an international speaker and media spokeswoman on the topics of conflict resolution, leadership and team transition, power and hierarchy, stress management, and employee wellness.” She covers everything from the mind-body-spirit connection (Medical Intuitive awareness from an allopathic doctor!) to Saudi-Indian-American relations to media misrepresentations of conflict when there’s truly a connection among cultures. All in all, this is a fabulous, heartwarming talk. Enjoy!

  1. lol! i haven’t watched the video you posted, but total synchronicity! i was just telling allison i was going to post a TED i saw last night that was my favorite so far, for totally different reasons. so stay tuned as we synch up the TED high vibes together today! LOL! so much synchronicity taking place moment to moment and rapidly speeding up. also was talking about that too as another discussion this morning was then mirrored by today’s Morning Blessings with Reverend Angela Peregoff (a very good one too worth posting), and as you and i have seen with things we feel, visions and signs we receive, dreams, stuff we talk about and then hearing/seeing it at the same moment from each other, others something like a radio show or tv show or an article, or whatever mirroring the same exact thing we are hitting on. always has been this way, but it sure is in mega overdrive. We are plugged in and the line between individual and other is completely blurred and integrating into collective on a conscious and very visible/tangible way now. yay magic!

  4. I was wondering if you ever posted what a lightworker is. I have a general idea, and my kitten keeps on messing up this comment so maybe I shouldn’t post it. Cats and keyboards… If you haven’t do you know of someone who has made a good post?

  5. Reblogged this on Intuitive Voyage and commented:
    I heard from a Tedx video posted on Laura Bruno’s site that some cultures believe depression is an ailment of the soul. Dr Sangwan mentions a book about how to get out of depression without medication. What about Bipolar disorder? What am I thinking. For my level of illness I am in too deep.

    Did you know that when I was first Bipolar I thought I had suddenly become extremely psychic. I wanted to find a psychic to argue this so I could get off medication. Depression kept me from doing this.

    At first I was worried that everyone was lying to me. That they were trying to force me to take medication that was poison to my brain. It was to keep me in line because I was able to see things that would have pushed others out of line.

    But something occurred to me, I did not want to live in a world without belief in the higher good. If there was some conspiracy to drug me, it was going to happen no matter what. They could force nutrients and drugs into my veins if I refused to eat. So I needed to choose which world I wanted to live in.

    I had enough logic in my brain to see this. Some people living in psychosis have lost the ability to rationalize.

    I was also afraid of if God wanted me to take medication, but God could burn the drugs out of my blood if s/he/it wanted.

    Still at times I wonder, am I running away from my destiny? Could I survive without medication? I know the answer is no. If you saw me when I was on less medication you would understand. There is no magical technique to cure my symptoms. No mind frame to keep me from pain.

    All of this is why I hate science. Science gave me a chance to escape hell, but it also puts me in a boring life with little real excitement. While unmedicated I was on fire. A fire that would sooner or later burn out my brain taking memories and empathy with it.

    Or at least this is what science told me, and I have trouble letting go of science. I will never know if I could survive Bipolar without medication, because I gave in without a fight. At times I regretted this. Sometimes I felt that, even the cost it would have been to my brain, I should have put up a fight.

    This post isn’t exactly what a doctor would like me to tell someone with Bipolar. I guess I am trying to say that while I have always taken my medication, because of what scientists have told me, I see the benefit in fighting. I once found a book on how to naturally fight Bipolar disorder at a library.

    If you choose to fight, listen to yourself honestly. Are you happy? Not the crazy happiness of mania, but the softer healthier happiness that really lasts? Is this working?

    I am leaving tag Bipolar off of this post. I cannot let go of what science tells me, and do not want to hurt another Bipolar soul. Bipolar souls suffer enough as it is.

    Thanks for sharing the link and your story, peacenowflower. I know from working with clients who would prefer not to be on meds that it’s a complicated process that needs to go hand in hand with personal development, awakening, nutrition, as well as close contact with the prescribing physician. Since those drugs do alter brain chemistry, it’s always wise to have the scientists at least able to monitor a gradual decrease. Parasite cleanses and having a doctor or nutritionist who can monitor blood chemistry usually help, too. I’ve also found that most people do well when they forgive themselves for not being “perfectly natural” right away. Those who just go step by step, gradually changing their life and diet often find they need far less or eventually no medication.

    This is totally not medical advice, but you might want to check out B12 supplementation and its connection to bipolar disorder. There have been some studies done, and I have personally known people who had “bipolar” attacks when they were really just low on B12. Getting their levels and absorption up to normal removed all or most of the bipolar symptoms. I’ve known others who were radically able to cut back on pharmaceutical dosage just by supplementing with B12. Again, NOT medical advice here … the people who did this successfully did so while still under care. They just upped their nutrients, especially B12 and added a lot of fermented foods to correct gut health and improve absorption. Then they asked their doctors to check their blood and experiment with lower doses of meds. I personally know someone who cut all meds down to only 1/3, just with dietary shifts and B12. I know others who made radical lifestyle shifts, alkalized the blood, got rid of parasites and stopped taking meds altogether without ill effects. This isn’t something I’m legally allowed to diagnose or treat, but there is research available if you are interested and determined.

    Blessings to you in any and all cases! Your sweet, sincere spirit shines through. 🙂
