There are two victims here, one is clearly the woman who was being frightened by a crazed man. The remaining four supervisors were wise not to excuse his behavior.
At the same time, it is important to realize that demented behavior is just that—demented. In other words, Efren Carrillo was not his usual-- his real-- self.
Unlike a broken leg, mental illness is a fairly invisible malady. But it is not intentional. Nor is it strictly in the mind, but has a physiological basis.
Prescription drugs for mental illness are based on that very physiology. Therefore, everyone can grasp the concept that re-balancing one’s biochemistry will result in improved health. No one is born with a need for Prozac, but everyone requires various nutrients that are scarce in our modern diet.
Efren can use will power, prescriptions, talk therapy, and group support, but those won’t compensate for the lack of omega-3s (DHA, EPA), vitamin D, magnesium, iodine, and so many more, in his diet.
Joan Matthews Larson holds a doctorate in nutrition and is the founder and executive director of the Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, which has successfully treated several thousand people over the past 20 years. Her seventeen-year-old son’s suicide led to her search for more effective solutions to emotional healing. Her books 7 Weeks to Sobriety and 7 Weeks to Emotional Healing explain the complex biochemistry and the necessary tests, diet, and supplements that rebuild health. Three quarters of the people in her program are successful in achieving sobriety from drugs or alcohol.
We are all victims of the food processing industry that ‘buys low and sells high,’ putting cheap but addictive replacements for real food into pretty boxes and knowingly using the gateway drug of sugar to hook us on these non-foods. These food corporations are no better than drug lords.
A good place to start healing is NOT the “nutritional” standards set by the USDA, which have been shaped by immoral corporations, but with Primal nutrition websites, or nutrition that copies the foods which supported healthy populations for thousands of years, as explained at WestonAPrice.org. For ten years, Dr. Price, DDS, studied isolated groups that were still living and eating in traditional ways, and wrote the ground-breaking Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. Some call him the Darwin of Nutrition.
Efren will recover faster if he adds super nutrition to his treatment plan. In fact, anyone would regain their real selves faster with good nutrition. The computer axiom GIGO is also true for people: “Garbage In, Garbage Out.”
