My distinguished award-winning book clients, integrative psychiatrists Richard P. Brown, MD and PatriciaGerbarg, MD, join colleagues on-line to support the public during the current public health and mental health crisis.
Drs. Brown and Gerbarg, New York-based medical school professors known for their continuing trauma relief work at Ground Zero NYC, and with Syrian, Sudanese, Rwandan, and Rohingya refugees, have written innumerable articles and six noteworthy books.
See The Healing Power of the Breath from Shambhala Publications as welcome reading for these times.
Their participation in the Corona Virus Mental Health discussion begins March 31, 2020 Greenwich Time (London, UK) and continues for the next two weeks.
Details may be found in the press release I posted on the Internet at the following links:
The Hospital Civil “Fray Antonio Alcalde”, also known as the Old Civil Hospital, produced its 21st International Geriatric and Gerontology Symposium July 7-9, 2016, at the Hilton Hotel auditorium in Guadalajara, Mexico. The theme was “Enfermedades Neurodegenerativas en la Vejez”, or, Neurodegenerative Illness in Older Adults.
There were about 250 attendees as well as one pharmaceutical company (Asofarma de Mexico, S.A.), one hospital supply company from Switzerland, and a private pay day care senior center (www.vidavi.mx) offering business cards, pamphlets, free pens, and carry bags to participants in the registration area.
Four geriatric physicians from the hospital organized the event – Dr.David Leal Mora (the international section), Dr.Hector Ivan Cruz Neri, Dr. Julio Alberto Dias Ramos, and Dra Rocio Garcia Talavera. Guest speakers were from Guadalajara, Leon, Mexico City, and the U.S.
There were memorable talks about the Use and Abuse of Antipsychotic Drugs, Managing the Symptoms of Parkinson’s, When a Day is 36 Hours, Evidence-Based Geriatrics, Government Assistance Programs for Older Adults, and Can We Prevent Dementia?
What stood out most were the physicians, both American and Mexican, who are exploring and interested in alternative non-drug options for dementia prevention. The common theme – we must all be vigilant in keeping our cognitive skills sharp to the very end, if possible.
http://www.AlzheimersDementiaSummit.com focusing on dementia prevention and alternative remedies that already exist for protecting our brains and our minds. Produced by Jonathan Landsman, a natural health advocate with physicians and others as guest speakers – Dr. Russell Blaylock, Dr. David Jockers, Donna Gates, Dr. Mark Hyman, Josh Axe, Sayer Ji, Michael T. Murray and many others. I missed this July 2016 summit on line but believe it might be available to listen to.
