Stop Eating Your Emotions! 5 Steps to End Emotional Eating for Good
Emotional eating is something that everyone does once in a while. The problem arises when emo-eating becomes a regular occurrence. Many people who frequently emotionally eat usually have a tough time coping with strong, unpleasant emotions that they are currently experiencing. Eating becomes a way for the person to "escape" from the situation because planning what you will eat, preparing the food and then escaping into a probable "food coma" all are temporary distractions from whatever is going on in that person's life at the moment. If you find that you are reaching for food when you're not hungry quite often, use the fol...

The Strange Way LSD Both Mimics Psychosis And Improves Mental Health
Psychedelic drugs like LSD have the power to radically alter consciousness, giving rise to a number of psychological effects that are positive, negative, mystical and just plain weird. Research in recent decades has shown that LSD-assisted psychotherapy can potentially treat a range of mental illnesses, including depression, addiction and end-of-life anxiety. On the other hand, scientists have also used LSD to mimic the effects of psychosis.   But if LSD replicates the features of mental illness -- namely, early-stage psychosis -- how can it improve mental health in the long run?  New research points to...

How I Knew My Relationship With Wine Was Unhealthy
This is author Joyce Maynard's second part of a three-part series on drinking. You can read the first piece here. I was 12-years-old, which would make the year 1966 -- and I was home alone, except for my father, who was upstairs asleep. But he was not so much sleeping as passed out. Knock at the door: a police officer. "Do you know anything about the Oldsmobile outside?" he asked me. It was our family car. Abandoned in the middle of the street in front of our house. With the motor running. "I guess my father left it there," I told the policeman. This wasn't the first time. "Don't worry," he said, when he learned I was ...

How Studying The Minds Of Cultural Icons May Combat Mental Illness Stigma
Marilyn Monroe lives in our cultural imagination as one of the most iconic actresses in Hollywood history. But underneath the famous blonde curls and sex-kitten voice, there's a complex woman who likely suffered from borderline personality disorder, according to science journalist Claudia Kalb.   Biographers and commentators have long struggled to make sense of Monroe's contradictory personality. The actress "yearned for love and stability," and yet often lashed out at those she cared about. "What is clear is that Monroe suffered from severe mental distress," she writes in her stirring new book...

How Alcohol Use Affects Health
You may have heard of Dry January, a campaign run in the U.K. by Alcohol Concern. To promote alcohol awareness, it involves (as you’ve likely gathered) completely abstaining from alcohol for the month of January. It’s a valuable campaign with noble intentions, but a minority of participants may unfortunately miss the wider point. A month of strict abstinence does lead some to drink more than they should come February 1. Remaining alcohol free for a month is an achievement which deserves to be rewarded, but compensatory drinking is not what Dry January is trying to advocate. A healthy attitude towards consumption (not ...

Matching modern genetic profiles against genes known to have been inherited from Neanderthals has shown links to a wide range of current disordersModern European and Asian people may owe more than skin or hair colour to Neanderthal ancestry.

Healing Addictions: Does Getting High Equal to Getting Hooked?
For decades, scientists believed that addictions were driven by the pleasurable effects of the substance/behavior in question - that addicts compulsively seek the enjoyable "addictive effects" that make life fun, fun, and more fun.

And this belief was not unreasonable, given the fact that addictive substances and behaviors trigger a huge surge of dopamine (and other hyper-stimulating neurochemicals) in the brain, resulting in feelings of excitement, pow...
