Q&A: Shen – Emotional and Mental Balance, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia | Gabriel Cousens MD

(soothing music) – Let’s go back to the principle. It’s a very good question. So the principle is,
when Shen is in order, it is the general for all the other emotions. When Shen is in retreat, which is what happens when we abuse it, it recedes, and all the emotions come up and you have mental imbalance. Follow what I’m saying here? So, in general, the reishi will be calming and relaxing and centering, and whoever because it’s gonna balance Shen, and Shen then begins to take back in control, and it
controls all the other chaotic emotions, then
become less chaotic. Shen becomes, acts as the general. When we abuse it, shen retreats. That’s how they describe
it, ‘Shen retreats.” Then you got all the chaos. That’s what you want, that’s what you get. – [Woman] Can you give an example for mental imbalance? What about people, or what about…? – Bee pollen? – [Woman] Bipolar, or schizophrenia, or– – Oh, bipolar! – [Woman] Bipolar, sorry. – I thought you said bee pollen. (audience laughs) So in my book, “Depression Free For Life,” I talk about a 90 percent success rate. So I don’t say, “Here, take
reishi for your depression.” I don’t do, you know, I’m
looking at the whole thing. So please understand that. And a 90 percent success rate, and an 80 percent
success rate for bipolar. Success rate means no relapses. No relapse. So I use all the angles. I make sure you’re not allergic, I make sure your blood, optimal pH for the blood
is 7.46 for mental health. Brain cells are working optimally, so I make sure you pH is optimal. I make sure you’re not taking things that create brain allergies. You can go into a schizophrenic state, I’ve seen this, in 30 seconds, if you take something that’s gonna
create a brain allergy. Your brain swells, and
your mind just goes. That really does happen. Hey, welcome. So, the concept here, is that we look at your nutrients that balance and build your neurotransmitters. We look at neurotransmitter building, and we talk about going vegan because when you take meat, fish, chicken, and dairy, genetically people don’t do as well. They did a study in Russia, with incurable schizophrenics, and they simply water fasted ’em. And after 28 days, 65 percent of the incurables became normal. Stopped being schizophrenic. What happened? And then they observed more. So when they went back and people stayed vegan, they were fine. But the people who ate meat became schizophrenic again. What happened? Well, the certain substances of the meat that the schizophrenic people had lost their ability to convert. Do you see what I mean? And so they had six times higher level of that substance, and that made their brains go haywire. So, when we add all those together, we’re looking at pretty
overall good results, like depression, I say 90 percent, meaning no relapse, and 80 percent success rate using totally
natural approaches, like I mentioned, the five levels, with manic depression. – [Woman] The water diet, is that, something you use it? – Absolutely, absolutely. Add schizophrenia, I’m gonna say 50, 60 percent. That’s not my research. Abram Hoffer, you know, 40 years ago, out of Vancouver, Canada, was, would use certain supplements,
just supplements alone, would get about a 50 percent success rate. I get a little higher than that using all the pictures. He just used B3, B6, E, and vitamin C, and he got results. So yes, improving brain function. Yes, improving
neurotransmitter functioning. Yes, improving kinda the
inner spiritual energies, like with the plant herbs,
we’re getting a lot stronger. Like anxiety, the research can show that all the anti-anxiety medications, they can help initially, cause they can regulate, but after 25 weeks,
people start to relapse, and what’s worse is
they end up having more anxiety because the circuits
are affected negatively. But by using the different
herbs we’re using, and, you know, looking at the reishi, and looking at, you know, we’re getting more sustained repair of the system, which is quite important. Do you follow what I’m saying here? So we’re looking again about repairing the systems rather than simply putting in regulate kinda suppresses it, and it only works for
really, research says, maybe 25 weeks before really you start having a four times higher rate of relapse than if you didn’t do anything. And guess what? Schizophrenia’s the same thing. This is amazing. They showed, in 1947, at
Boston State Hospital, they took the records versus
when Thorazine came out. Do you know what Thorazine is? One of the very first anti-psychotics. And people were calmer, but in five years, there was many more relapses with the people on Thorazine
because it actually caused a shift in the
brain shape and function. To the extent that when they looked around the world, it was so
lopsided, that in a five year what we call relapse,
63 percent of the people on Thorazine had relapses. And I’m saying that fits with the modern stuff we’re using today
too, anti-psychotics, versus that, well, 63 and
then you look at 37 percent, didn’t have relapse, and it
flipped around the other way. When people got no medications, their five-year relapse
was actually better. Why? Because these drugs interfere with brain metabolism and actually cause long-term imbalances. Follow what I’m saying here? – [Woman] They affect the
liver, or toxicity…? – They affect the nervous system. Tardive dyskinesia,
irreversible type things, but they actually change
the shape of the brain. They make your brain much more super-sensitive to dopamine because the medications suppress dopamine, so the brain, says, “Fine, I’ll
just become more sensitive.” And that becomes a structural change. And that’s part of why they get a relapse. But you follow what, I’m kinda, I wanna get back to the question of we think pharmaceuticals
are doing the job. They are not doing the job. – [Woman] They’re treating the symptoms, and not doing repair? – Worse, they’re making you worse in the long run. They suppress the symptoms temporarily. You have more five year, more relapses within five years, on the medication versus if you didn’t take anything. They compared, they say the records at Boston State Hospital,
in ’47 they didn’t have any of these drugs, less relapse, compared to taking medication. Because it changes and it causes, the head of the National
Institute of Mental Health, said, “perturbations in the brain.” It’s actually changing
the brain physiology, not in good ways, since
there’s more relapses. (soothing music)
