Author William Jiang, MLS- Celebrating Milestones, and a Heartfelt Thank You to Columbia Psychiatry

mental health books author william jiangAfter a month of life-threatening struggle, my new doctor at Columbia Psychiatry saved my life. Listening and understanding me better than other doctors, he had the deep knowledge of  the medicines I do well with better than any other doctor I have ever had. My life was at risk from a side effect of Navane. The side effect is a tardive dystonia which can be caused by antipsychotics, especially the older ones, where especially at night my tongue violently contracted. I was in danger of choking to death on my own tongue. For 25+ years, I had been taking Navane. For me, it has been by far the best medicine. Some time back in an attempt to take care of me, other doctors had tried me on Clozaril. I ended up in a cardiac ICU for a blood pressure of  50/30 or less, some insanely low number. Clozaril is a great medicine for many, many people. It is not for me. Last month, I was put on 4mg of Risperdal; when that didn’t work out well, 20 mg of Saphris. I did not do well on these medicines; I even ended up in the hospital for a week and a little more. When I finally got out, my new Columbia Psychiatry doctor put me back on my old friend 10mg of Navane. To control the life-threatening tongue contractions he put me on 25 mg of Benadryl. It worked!!! Last year I was over 260lbs; and now because of a Spartan diet and exercise program, I am down to much healthier 222 lbs as of today.  I want to reiterate how lucky I feel to live close enough to Columbia Psychiatry to make use of their services. I want to say there are doctors and there are doctors. Thank you to my new great Columbia Psychiatry doctor!! You are a real lifesaver!!

I want to share with you my new gained knowledge; this why I love to write! I write my books for others, but I also write them for my own knowledge. How so? I used to suffer from severe clinical depression between the years of 2008-2011. I took lexapro and wellbutrin. At the end of 2011 my depression was getting worse. I was about to start a competitive second masters in the Baruch Zicklin MBA program. At this time, I had almost uncontrollable urges to throw myself in front of subway trains, off of bridges, and out of windows. I taught myself some natural healing techniques to go along with the most basic intervention, the star that is Omega-3 fish oil.  I have not been depressed or anything resembling suicidal since that time at Baruch @ Aug 28, 2013. It is now 2018, almost 5 years later. I thought it was time to share that big success on my blog with my readers. Also, sometime, around 2010 I had to take a dose of Navane up to 23 mg per day, with an average dose of 15 or more mg. Now, I take the “minimum” effective dose, which I mentioned before which is 10mg. The highest dose of Navane I have ever taken was 40mg. So, I have cut the amount of antipsychotic drugs drastically, also using natural techniques that I write about in my book Guide to Natural Mental Health.

Currently, I am in the process of finishing up the 4th edition of The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health, so please wait to get that book as the third edition is old news. I am very excited for this book to hit Amazon, because the book has a lot more great information that I have learned since the 3rd edition. If I am lucky, I may have Dr. Lieberman, the former APA President write the foreword. Finally, I am starting book number 66 which will be titled “William Jiang and the Gammacore”, which will detail the true story of how I discovered how external Vagal Nerve Stimulators like the Gammacore can sometimes control severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS).  I am committed to writing for wellness and healing, for myself and others, and I am fortunate I have much to share with you. I am blessed to feel so well today. Happy 2018! Salud y felicidad para ustedes este año nuevo!

Author William Jiang, MLS on Fluoride, Intelligence, and Mental Health and Next Book

To understand about author of 65 books William Jiang, MLS on fluoride, intelligence, and mental health we can see a snippet from one of his other books, A Historical Reader: The New York Times and Madness, 1851-1922

From the New York Times

Published: September 29, 1912
“America Facing Its Most Tragic Moment” by Dr. Carl Jung

“Whatever a man builds is likely to devour him, and the builder in America is in danger of being destroyed—but why should I call him names for that reason? He has to express himself in big buildings, in trusts, in systems, of which we in Europe have as yet only have the beginnings. We envy you. We have not learned to think in such great abstractions—and we are not in as great danger as you Americans.”

Carl Jung is talking about Americans as very forward thinking people, seemingly much more advanced than Europeans, putting Americans on a pedestal in this regard for our intelligence, social systems, architecture, trusts, and systems. Seemingly, according to Dr. Carl Jung, we Americans were the most advanced people in the world in 1912.

I ask you. What happened? Do we think of Americans in general as the most intelligent people in the world in 2017, a little over 100 years later? When I think of the great thinkers today, invariably I think of Europeans or Asians. What the hell happened?

Fluoridation

America was known for its Engineers up until the 1920s at least. It had the best engineers and educational system in the world. What changed all that? Fluoridation of the water, maybe?  In 1945 they first started fluoridating the water in Michigan. Let us get this sequence right. In 1912 we are on top of the heap as a group. In 1945 most of America’s water is fluoridated. Something changed. Riddle me this. Why are we drinking a neurotoxin? It is great for the general dental health, yes, we get that. It’s generally safe and well tolerated in adults.  Sure. However, when this powerful neurotoxin can pass both the placenta and blood-brain barrier into helpless children in utero, you have the crux of the issue. Hey, do not take my word for all of this. Check out this article on CNN, hidden in plain sight. By the way, most of Europe and most of Asia do not put fluoride in their water.

Mental Health and Modernity

ALL of my books deal with mental, physical, or emotional health in some way. Why do I talk about mental health in a brief article about IQ and Fluoridation? In a nutshell,  my contention is that it turns out in this modern age of fewer jobs, more fast foods, and overdosing on electronic technologies en masse, as well as drug use and abuse, we have lost much in terms of our mental and physical health. Indeed, due to our continuous environmental stressors, we are not only more isolated while damaging our own health but the also the health of our progeny, through insults to the epigenome, and epitranscriptome and eventually to the genome and our very evolution as a species. I am waiting on a possible foreword from arguably the most powerful psychiatrist in history Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman for my upcoming book The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th Edition. The good news is that you be proactive and protect your mental health, naturally! Your mom will thank you, and so will your kids, even the unborn ones!  In the meantime, I invite you to check out my author blog for more intriguing writing and interesting books! Please share for the children!

While Christmas is known as “the season to be jolly,” it can be a significant source of stress, pressure, and conflict for many of us. Some people can feel overwhelmed by the excess, expectations, and exchange and become depressed during the holidays.

A lack of time and money, credit card debt, and the pressure of gift giving can often contribute to stress during the holiday season.
