My friends, my name is William Jiang, MLS and I am the author of 72 books in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. I just released a book called My Natural Depression Fix: The Reason I was Featured in the New York Times and on CBS News (Aug 15, 2018), as the ladylove of my life explained to me that my books are generally too dense, and many people would just prefer a ‘recipe” for health. That book is available on Amazon.com for a small fee.
There are three books I believe can transform psychiatry as we know it. Drugs are useful sure. However, they control symptoms. I have been blessed to find a way to use natural techniques to cure schizophrenia and depression. William Walsh’s book that describes his powerful technique of methylation mostly depends on methyl B vitamins. I did not know that you could overmethylate. A doctor told me to cut back on my B vitamins as I was high, after taking 1 pill of Thorne Methyl Guard Plus, daily. I called Thorne, and the agent I talked to told me there was no problem in my taking 3 pills per day. Despite my gut feeling, I followed the Thorne representative’s advice. On August 27th, 2018 I damaged the mitocondria of my heart because the Thorne Methyl Guard Plus has way too much B12 in it. So the Plus, for me, was a minus. Now, because of the overmethylation due to the Thorne Product, I have a dangerous mitocondrial cardiomyopathy, and I pray I may be healed, but if not I leave this gift for you. If I post nothing else on my blog you will know what happened to me, that my life was lived in service to others, and all I ask is a small prayer from you, my friend, and I hope you find safe healing!
The three books that I feel can revolutionize psychiatry are the following
Bodymind (Body Mind) Energetics: Toward a Dynamic Model of Health (December 1, 1987) by Ph.D. DIPL. AC. Mark D. Seem et.al.
Dr. Seem proposes an integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and psychosomatics in this model of health care that acknowledges the connection of body and mind.
Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain Kindle Edition by William J. Walsh, MD
Psychiatry has made great advances in the past fifty years but needs a new direction. Today’s emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recent advances in epigenetics and the molecular biology of the brain have provided a roadmap for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that do not produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served society well over the last fifty years, but the need for drug therapies will fade away as science advances.
Nutrient Power presents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders. This approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body’s protection against environmental toxins. The author’s database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments that have produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh’s approach is more scientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at a true normalization of the brain.
Depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widely differing brain chemistries and symptoms. Nutrient Power describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types. Other book highlights include the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia, a new way to look at autism, a promising new treatment for Alzheimer’s, and recommendations for reducing crime and violence.
The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th edition by William Jiang, MLS
Author William Jiang, MLS is a former Columbia Psychiatry library chief, the author of more than 60 books in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, and has been featured in the New York Times and CBS News, as well as other major mental health news outlets. This is the 3rd edition of Mr. Jiang’s best-selling book. See the new edition titled “The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th edition.”
From the book jacket: “In sum, 1,000 years ago, if somebody had a mental health issue, they told the patient to pray about it, take this or that herb, rest, and take care of themselves- their body being their temple. That all changed when the first of the anti-psychotics, the major class of drug used to treat psychosis, was discovered in France in 1952, named chlorpromazine, more commonly known as Thorazine. Thorazine secured FDA approval on March 26, 1954 as the first psychiatric medication. Since then for pretty much all mental illnesses, the advice has been. Don’t pray, don’t take that supplement, don’t worry about anything, just take this drug. Now, with the nutritional psychiatry movement, medicine is incorporating the wisdom of the ages with the science of modern psychiatric treatments to reduce human suffering and increase mental wellness as never before, and it is about time.” -William Jiang, MLS
The thrust of this book is nutrition and complementary therapies for digital addiction, anxiety, bipolar, depression, and schizophrenia. Truisms that have been passed down through the ages about mental health that have stood the rigors of scientific inquiry are presented. How does belief make one’s brain stronger? The role of nutrition in ameliorating anxiety, bipolar, depression, and schizophrenia is discussed. Light is thrown on the benefits of meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, exercise, the healing power of music, and the detrimental effects of playing too many video games or too much electronic stimulation. The effect of light on bipolar disorder and the importance of good sleep hygiene is underlined. A question relevant to many of us, “What are the effects of being indoors all the time?” is delved into. A long list of things that can be helpful for ameliorating depression is presented including: natural herbal remedies, meditation, religion, yoga, the effect of too much or too little light, the role of exercise in fighting depression, the role of music on the mood, the role of a positive social network in recovery, the role of pets, the harmful effects of the digital lives we lead, and the healing power of scent. Finally, the amazing fact that nutrition can sometimes prevent psychosis or depression in its beginning stages before it becomes a fully-blown problem is presented. Many exciting and useful additional mental health tips are added to fourth edition. This is a book packed with word-class tips from a leader in natural mental health.
