Therapy

Erika Slater Head and upper torso image2Therapy, in the context we use it here, involves treatment of conditions by professionals using discussion and dialogue to help an individual achieve a specific outcome. Medications and surgical procedures can bring a patient a long way to recovery, but in many cases they tackle the symptoms and not the root cause.

Therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), have emerged as viable compliments to medical treatments and prescriptions. However, unlike taking medication it requires active participation by the patient and requires work outside the sessions.

In this selection of materials, we cover therapies used to overcome Opioid addiction, Misophonia and Hyperacusis, Orthorexia, facial tics and much more.

New types of therapies, and variations of those mentioned above, are being introduced in an attempt to reduce the dependency on prescription drugs with harmful side-effects.
