Micronutrition and Supplements at Taproot Therapy Collective809c1

1/27/2024
Hardy micronutrition refers to the study and application of micronutrients that are essential for the robust health and well-being of living organisms, particularly humans. Micronutrients, which include vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, play a crucial role in various bodily functions despite being required in small quantities. These nutrients are vital for growth, disease prevention, and the overall functioning of the body's systems. They are especially significant because the human body cannot synthesize most of these elements, making it essential to obtain them through diet or supplements. Hardy micronutrition emphasizes not just the presence of these nutrients in a diet, but also their bioavailability and balance, ensuring that they can be effectively absorbed and utilized by the body. The concept of hardy micronutrition is grounded in the understanding that a deficiency or imbalance in these micronutrients can lead to a range of health issues. For example, a lack of vitamin D can lead to bone problems, while insufficient iron might cause anemia. Therefore, this field focuses on identifying and addressing gaps in micronutrient intake. This is particularly relevant in the modern world where dietary patterns have shifted, often leading to an inadequate intake of essential nutrients. Hardy micronutrition also plays a significant role in addressing specific health conditions and life stages, such as pregnancy, aging, or chronic illnesses, where the demand for certain micronutrients may increase. In practical terms, hardy micronutrition involves a multifaceted approach that includes dietary assessments, education, and sometimes supplementation. It advocates for a balanced and varied diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, as these are natural sources of essential micronutrients. In cases where diet alone is insufficient, supplements might be recommended. However, the field also stresses the importance of not over-consuming certain micronutrients, as this can lead to toxicity and other health issues. Overall, hardy micronutrition underscores the importance of a nuanced understanding of micronutrients in promoting and maintaining optimal health.

๐Ÿชท๐Ÿง˜Interview With Matthew Remski of the Conspirituality Podcast

1/22/2024
The term 'cult' often conjures sensationalist imagery and extreme behavior. However, a closer examination reveals a more complex relationship between cults, capitalism, and societal norms. This article delves into this interconnection, highlighting the need for a more nuanced understanding of cults beyond their sensationalist portrayal. The Cult-Capitalism Nexus The rise of figures like Keith Raniere of NXIVM has drawn public attention to cults. However, the fascination with such figures often overshadows similar practices in mainstream capitalism, exemplified by figures like Jeff Bezos. The cultish behaviors in corporations and the glorification of billionaire CEOs reflect a concentrated, localized form of capitalism, challenging the distinct boundary between cults and corporate culture. Cults often attract individuals in marginalized and vulnerable circumstances. Rather than addressing the societal failures contributing to these vulnerabilities, such as inadequate social services, the sensationalism around cults tends to ridicule and stigmatize their members. This approach diverts attention from the systemic issues at play, including the deep-seated inequalities perpetuated by capitalist structures. The Role of Media and True Crime The portrayal of cults in media and true crime documentaries often parallels the narrative strategies employed in cop dramas, reinforcing certain stereotypes and ignoring the broader context. This trend reflects a cultural tendency to oversimplify complex social phenomena, ignoring the underlying economic and power dynamics. The methods employed by cult leaders like Raniere are not significantly different from those used by some corporate leaders. This similarity suggests that the techniques of control and exploitation in cults are derived from the worst aspects of predatory capitalism. Such parallels necessitate a reevaluation of how society perceives and addresses the concept of cults. The discourse around cults often fails to address the deeper issues of power dynamics and economic exploitation inherent in our societal structures. By focusing on sensationalist aspects, we overlook the ways in which cult-like behaviors are embedded within and reflective of broader capitalist practices. A more critical and nuanced understanding of cults can shed light on these intertwined societal issues. Today we delve deep into the fascinating intersections of spirituality, wellness, politics, cults and conspiracy theories. Today, we're exploring the intriguing world of Matthew Remski.' Matthew, a former yoga teacher turned cult dynamics researcher, has been at the forefront of unmasking the often hidden connections between spiritual practices and conspiracy theories. In this episode, we'll dive into Matthew's journey, his insights into how spiritual communities can become breeding grounds for conspiracy theories, and his efforts to promote critical thinking and psychological safety in these spaces.

On the Psychology, Shadow, and Projection of Politics with Dr. Peter T Dunlap

12/4/2023
Join me for a discussion with Dr. Peter T Dunlap about politics projection and how to save the future with psychology. Welcome to our podcast, where today's special guest is Peter T. Dunlap, a remarkable psychologist with a unique blend of private and political practice experience. Raised by a psychologically aware mother and a father who was a liberal legislator in California, Peter has seamlessly integrated these diverse influences into his work. Peter's journey in psychology spans over three decades, beginning in 1990. His expertise lies in helping individuals discover meaning in their personal and professional lives, navigate relational challenges, and embark on a journey towards self-improvement. He is the acclaimed author of "Awakening our Faith in the Future: The Advent of Psychological Liberalism" (Routledge, 2008), among numerous other scholarly articles, book chapters, and contributions to Tikkun magazine. Dedicated to fostering emotional intelligence within communities, Peter has been pivotal in founding a distinct Jungian political psychology and cultivating the role of "citizen therapist". His work aims to empower community leaders, activists, psychotherapists, and individuals eager to strengthen their civic engagement through both individual and group settings. By extending emotional intelligence to a public sphere, Peter's approach seeks to transform interpersonal dynamics and celebrate the diversity of values in our society. At the intersection of Jungian psychology and political practice, Peter has made significant contributions to international Jungian communities, serving on boards like the International Association of Jungian Studies (IAJS) and the Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies (JSSS), and as a guest editor for the Journal for Jungian Scholarly Studies. His commitment to group transformative practice has been a highlight at numerous Jungian conferences, fostering conscious group formation and exploration.

๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ŠExploring the Impact of Micronutrients on Mental Health and Chronic Inflammation

11/15/2023
Check Out Hardy: https://try.hardynutritionals.com Special Thanks to Jared Hardy and Cory Rasmussen for joining us to talk about micronutrients. In today's episode, we're thrilled to dive deep into the world of micronutrients and their impact on mental health and chronic inflammation. Joining us are experts from Hardy Nutritionals, a pioneering company at the forefront of nutritional psychiatry. Founded by David L. Hardy, their innovative approach has opened new avenues in treating mood, stress, and anxiety-related disorders. So, whether you're a healthcare professional, someone struggling with mental health issues, or just curious about the power of nutrition, this episode promises to shed light on how micronutrients can transform lives. Stay tuned for an enlightening conversation full of insights, research, and holistic health strategies. Let's get started! Here are some notable research studies conducted or supported by Hardy Nutritionals: Efficacy and Safety of a Vitamin-Mineral Intervention for Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression in Adults: A Randomised Placebo-Controlled Trial "NoMAD": This study investigated the effects of micronutrients on anxiety and depression symptoms in adults. The results showed significant improvements in the micronutrient group, especially in younger participants, those from lower socioeconomic groups, and those who had previously tried psychiatric medicationโ€‹โ€‹. Non-Pharmacological Interventions for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adolescents: This study evaluated the efficacy and safety of non-pharmacological treatments for pediatric ADHD. It concluded that multinutrients, mindfulness, and polyunsaturated fatty acids can be effective secondary treatments in combination with primary treatments or when primary treatments are not suitableโ€‹โ€‹. Micronutrients for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Youth: A Placebo-Controlled Randomized Clinical Trial: This trial focused on the benefits of micronutrients for ADHD and irritability in children. It found that micronutrients were more beneficial than placebo according to clinician ratings, but not according to parent-report ratings. The study highlighted the safety and efficacy of micronutrients for treating ADHD in youthโ€‹โ€‹. Do Changes in Blood Nutrient Levels Mediate Treatment Response in Children and Adults With ADHD Consuming a Vitamin-Mineral Supplement?: This study aimed to determine whether changes in serum nutrient levels could mediate the clinical response to a micronutrient intervention for ADHD. It found a weak association between a decrease in ferritin and an increase in copper with a greater likelihood of being identified as an ADHD responderโ€‹โ€‹. Multinutrients for the Treatment of Psychiatric Symptoms in Clinical Samples: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials: This meta-analysis reviewed randomized controlled trials of multinutrients for various psychiatric symptoms. The results indicated significant clinical benefits, particularly in ADHD populations, with improvements in global functioning and symptom reductionโ€‹โ€‹. ๐ŸŒ Website: https://gettherapybirmingham.com/ ๐ŸŽฅ Check out the YouTube: https://youtube.com/@GetTherapyBirminghamPodcast ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Podcast Website: https://gettherapybirmingham.podbean.com/ ๐Ÿ”Š Podcast Feed: https://feed.podbean.com/GetTherapyBirmingham/feed.xml ๐Ÿข Taproot Therapy Collective ๐Ÿ“ 2025 Shady Crest Drive | Hoover, Alabama 35216 ๐Ÿ“ž Phone: (205) 598-6471 ๐Ÿ“  Fax: (205) 634-3647 ๐Ÿ“ง Email: Admin@GetTherapyBirmingham.com

11/6/2023
Blue Medicine Journal Podcast Today, we have the immense pleasure of hosting an extraordinary guest, Dr. Sandra del Castillo. With an illustrious academic background, holding both a Ph.D. and an M.A. in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, Dr. del Castillo is not just an academic but a true embodiment of the teachings she imparts. As a teacher, storyteller, and ritual artist, she has traversed the rich cultural landscape of Mexico, living in four different states over fifteen years to connect with her ancestral roots. This profound journey not only inspired her dissertation on the Mexican Day of the Dead but also deepened her understanding of the archetypal wisdom woven into the fabric of Mesoamerican cosmovisions, philosophy, poetry, and mythology. Dr. del Castilloโ€™s work comes at a critical Kairos moment in history, as humanity stands at the precipice of the Sixth Great Extinction. Her artistry in ritual is a dance with the numinous, each piece a conduit of the soulโ€™s language, offering healing and transformation to both the creator and the witness. With nearly three decades of facilitating ritual in diverse settingsโ€”from the classrooms of California and Oregon to the ancient pyramid sites of Mexicoโ€”she has honed her craft to perfection. Dr. del Castillo also offers her wisdom through classes and workshops, including the transformative โ€œThe Art of Living Ritual: Re-animating an Ensouled Worldview.โ€ Today, she brings her insights into our studio, sharing reflections and conversations that are not only thought-provoking but soul-stirring. Her podcast, Blue Medicine Journal, is a treasure trove of Jungian wisdom, dedicated to the re-enchantment of our world. It's a call to awaken from the spell of disenchantment and journey into the blueโ€”the soul realmsโ€”where dreams, myth, ritual art, and imagination become vital tools in the face of extinction. So join us as we sit down with Dr. Sandra del Castillo, a Jungian mentor, ritual artist, dreamer, and the heart behind Blue Medicine Journal, #DepthPsychology #JungianPsychology #ArchetypalWisdom #SoulJourney #RitualArt #AncestralRoots #DayOfTheDead #Mythology #PsycheAndSoul #DreamsAndSymbols #MexicanCulture #Cosmovision #Mesoamerica More Info: https://gettherapybirmingham.com/

๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฟ๐Ÿ™The Spirituality of Urban Planning With Will Selman

7/17/2023
Central to the discussion is the ancient Greek concept of 'Temenos' - a sacred space extending beyond the confines of a temple into the city. This idea is crucial in reimagining urban spaces not just as functional entities but as extensions of sacred, communal areas. The book argues for viewing the entire city through this lens, transforming urban planning into a more holistic and respectful practice toward both the environment and its inhabitants. Urban planning and depth psychology may appear as disparate fields, yet their intersection offers novel insights into city design and architecture. The article further explores how contemporary urban planning can benefit from this approach, especially considering today's societal and environmental challenges. It discusses the need for cities to transcend utilitarian views, integrating practicality with a deeper spiritual and communal essence. There is also a critique of modern furniture design and architecture, contrasting the intentional and lasting designs of the past with the transient and utility-focused trends of today. This critique extends to discussing how the values reflected in our buildings and urban spaces have evolved and why a reevaluation of these values is essential.

Let's get started! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽง The unfortunate state of our cities and towns is not so much a problem of design and policy as a reflection of a loss of spiritual values and purpose on a civilizational scale. But if our built environment reflects our deeper spiritual intentions, the experience of the city can be a source of psychic uplift. So argues urban consultant Will Selman in his tour de force book Temenos: The Design and Experience of Urbanism as Spiritual Path. Selman begins with the assertion that the fundamental task of humanity, throughout time and across cultures, is the spiritual quest to awaken to greater insight and more conscious awareness. This is an evolutionary process on the personal and collective level, and, as he then illustrates, our built environments have an important role to play in that psycho-spiritual awakening. Temenos takes the reader on an eclectic journey through ancient mythology, shamanism, Jungian psychology, integral spirituality, sacred geometry, money and materialism, the history of suburban sprawl, and urbanism as storytelling, to name a few stops along the way to his final destinationโ€”a new approach to design he calls โ€œSymbolic Urbanism,โ€ based on the example of Lโ€™Enfantโ€™s plan for Washington, DC. Using images and compelling storytelling, Temenos is an engaging read for spiritual seekers who desire to discover the potential of urban towns and cities to support their journey, and for advocates of urban placemaking who desire to infuse their work with a more soulful approach. -------------------------------------------- Will Selman, CNU-A, is a New Urbanist land planning consultant in Washington, DC and founder of the Institute for Symbolic Urbanism.

๐Ÿ˜ˆIcky, Mean, Hateful: On the nature of evil in psychotherapy

5/31/2023
#EvilRevealed #AuthenticHonesty #RelationshipCounseling Join us on this thought-provoking episode of GetTherapyBirmingham.com's podcast, "Taproot Therapy Collective" ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ, as we explore the profound impact of labeling and confronting bad behavior in relationships. Discover how accurately identifying and acknowledging problematic patterns, regardless of their size, can be the key to fostering successful transformations. In relationship counseling, it's not the size of the problem that determines success; it's the willingness to accurately label and agree on the need for change. From monumental challenges like addiction or infidelity to seemingly minor issues like avoidance and white lies, the biggest predictor of success is the acknowledgment of the problem and the commitment to transform. ๐Ÿ”’โŒ In this episode, we dive deep into the nature of evil and its origins in rationalization and avoidance. ๐Ÿค” We unravel how avoiding the label of bad behavior perpetuates negative patterns and shields us from personal growth. We all bear the responsibility to change, but when someone deliberately chooses to make the world a worse place, it's crucial to be honest about their actions. Defend their soul's potential, but not their refusal to change. ๐Ÿ”€๐Ÿ’ก We challenge societal norms that discourage speaking ill of the family or the deceased, and instead advocate for authentic honesty as the foundation of meaningful change. After all, if we lack authenticity, what else do we have? Join us in this candid conversation as we unravel the complexities of evil, personal growth, and the power of embracing genuine honesty. ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก Get ready to shift your perspective, engage with thought-provoking insights, and explore the transformative power of authenticity. ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒŸ Tune in to this enlightening episode by visiting GetTherapyBirmingham.com/podcast or clicking the link in our bio. ๐ŸŽงโœจ For more information about relationship counseling and therapy services, visit GetTherapyBirmingham.com or call us at (555) 123-4567.

The intent is to encourage critical thinking, question implicit assumptions, and explore alternative ideas.

What would money look like if we didn't have these traditional forms of value storage? ๐Ÿ“‰๐Ÿ’ฐ Through intriguing examples, such as the Yapese island's unique monetary system, where massive limestone disks served as currency, we explore alternative means of storing value.

4/22/2023
#HealingandGrowth #PersonalizedTreatment #NeuralPlasticity Click here to find out more and book: https://gettherapybirmingham.podbean.... ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ก What You Need to Know About Neurostimulation and Brain Mapping ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ”ฌ Discover the cutting-edge therapy technique known as neurostimulation, designed to unlock new neural connections and rewiring pathways in the brain for growth and healing. Unlike other forms of brain feedback, neurostimulation emulates the natural learning process we experience as children, restoring plasticity and facilitating the formation of fresh neural networks. Whether it's trauma, brain injury, aging, or neurodevelopmental conditions impeding brain growth, neurostimulation offers a natural solution. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ซ Enter the realm of brain mapping, the most precise method for analyzing brain function and personality. Far surpassing the insights gained from therapy or psychometrics alone, brain mapping provides invaluable information. Utilize your brain map to validate your intuitive understanding of your diagnosis, collaborate with your therapist to plan treatment, make informed decisions about medication, and determine the necessary steps for healing and growth. ๐Ÿงญ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ญ At Peak Neuroscience, we harness the power of your brain map to create a personalized neurostimulation plan that revitalizes your brain and promotes growth and healing. By identifying areas affected by trauma, injury, mental health conditions, or aging, neurostimulation taps into the brain's innate healing mechanisms. Through direct communication with the brain's neurons, our neurostimulation allows us to guide the healing process, potentially leading to permanent results and reducing or eliminating the need for medication in specific disorders. Gain the tangible proof you seek about your brain's state, as brain mapping provides undeniable evidence of its functioning, unlike many therapists and clinics that fail to listen. ๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ช Within the intricate web of neural networks, frequencies play a vital role. During learning, these frequencies harmonize, establishing functional connections. However, when interruptions occur, these frequencies break down, hindering effective communication within the brain's channels. At Peak Neuroscience, our clinicians refer to these frequencies as "phases," using them to comprehend your personality and determine the healing your brain requires. Neurostimulation emerges as the sole method of gentle, personalized stimulation that targets your brain's unique neural network. Unlike feedback or stimulation approaches based on a clinician's opinion or external measurements, neurostimulation is grounded in your brain's distinct fingerprint, with every aspect of treatment tailored specifically to you. ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿง ๐ŸŽฏ Unlock the transformative power of neurostimulation and brain mapping, unravel the frequencies that shape your brain's communication, and embark on a journey of healing and growth guided by your brain's unique needs and diagnosis.
