This is our second "Second Time Around" SelfWork episode as the team takes the holidays off (and I work on Book #2!) I loved this series on the most recent research on depression and what it indicates are the diverse potential sources or "reasons" for someone to experience depression. These episodes were first recorded in 2019 so the information was the newest I could find then... What I will say is that the research I've seen since have been further evidence that depression is NOT simply a chemical imbalance. I'll also reference a recent conversation I had with neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf as to her most recent research and what it shows, as well as another episode that feature the most recent findings in gut research and what it has to do with depression as well! You can click on those links for even more information! In this episode, sponsored by Athletic Greens or AG1, we'll focus on the  non-neurological things that have a tremendous influence on whether or not you could become depressed — specifically stress, trauma, medical illnesses and medications themselves. I'm again using a very well-written article by a team at Harvard as a guide.And I throw in some of my own observations and thoughts. And as always, there's a focus on treatment — or what you can do about it. This listener's question is a poignant one. She and her husband have been booted out of her daughter's life, who seems to have a history of significant emotional problems and is in therapy. So the question is how this mother could approach this very painful estrangement from her daughter as she wonders if the therapy itself is encouraging this behavior.

Here's the graphic from the Harvard article: Figure 1: Areas of the brain affected by depression Amygdala: The amygdala is part of the limbic system, a group of structures deep in the brain that's associated with emotions such as anger, pleasure, sorrow, fear, and sexual arousal. The amygdala is activated when a person recalls emotionally charged memories, such as a frightening situation. Activity in the amygdala is higher when a person is sad or clinically depressed. This increased activity continues even after recovery from depression. Thalamus: The thalamus receives most sensory information and relays it to the appropriate part of the cerebral cortex, which directs high-level functions such as speech, behavioral reactions, movement, thinking, and learning. Some research suggests that bipolar disorder may result from problems in the thalamus, which helps link sensory input to pleasant and unpleasant feelings. Hippocampus: The hippocampus is part of the limbic system and has a central role in processing long-term memory and recollection. Interplay between the hippocampus and the amygdala might account for the adage “once bitten, twice shy.” It is this part of the brain that registers fear when you are confronted by a barking, aggressive dog, and the memory of such an experience may make you wary of dogs you come across later in life. The hippocampus is smaller in some depressed people, and research suggests that ongoing exposure to stress hormone impairs the growth of nerve cells in this part of the brain.

This is a mindset that is similar to the “if only, could have, would have” mindset I discussed in a previous podcast and blog.

En 1 Tesalonicenses 5:18, el apóstol Pablo escribió: "Dad gracias en toda circunstancia, porque esta es la voluntad de Dios para con vosotros en Cristo Jesús". Vivir como personas agradecidas es la voluntad de Dios para nuestras vidas. Dios sabía antes del comienzo del tiempo cómo nos afectaría positivamente la gratitud, mucho antes de que se escribiera un artículo o un libro sobre el tema. Así que, sea que estés caminando en la vida sin problemas, o si sientes que caminas en arenas movedizas, aun así debes considerar añadir estos hábitos diarios a tu vida: CREAR NUEVOS CAMINOS. La Dra. Caroline Leaf, neurocientífica cognitiva y autora, dijo: "A medida que piensas, cambias la estructura de tu cerebro". Esto no es fácil. Pero podemos elegir en qué pensamos, así que permitamos que los pensamientos de agradecimiento llenen nuestra mente.ELIGE CINCO COSAS. Acostúmbrate a decir o escribir diariamente cinco cosas por las que estás agradecido. Puedes hacerlo en cualquier momento del día, por la mañana o por la noche.Establece una alarma de gratitud. Elige diferentes momentos del día. Cuando suene la alarma, pídele a Dios que te traiga a la mente las bendiciones y los regalos de tu vida y dale las gracias por ellos. CUÉNTASELO A ALGUIEN. Cada día, habla con alguien sobre lo que agradeces. Tal vez sea su amistad, el amanecer, un momento poderoso con Dios o una bendición inesperada que hayas recibido. Decirlo lo hace más real.#agradecimiento #AccionDeGracias#SemillasDeFeDevocional #RandyArreaza #IPUHPortArthur #IPUHPuertoArturo #SemillasDeFePodcast #IPUH#EduardoRodriguez #gratitud#ActitudDeGratitud➡️Enseñanza: Eduardo Rodriguez

Yet the nature of human sensitivity is often misunderstood, especially when it comes to recognizing and dealing with highly sensitive people. As I discuss in this week's with psychologist and best-selling author Dr. Elaine Aron, a significant percentage of the population (regardless of gender, race or nationality) are highly sensitive individuals, although many of them don't know they are highly sensitive, or what that means for the way they interact with others, express their emotions, deal with disapproval or parent their children.

There are some people who are both humble and brilliant and Dr. Caroline Leaf is one of those people. She's a world renowned Neuroscientist, mental health and mind expert, bestselling author  of Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess and host of Cleaning Up The Mental Mess podcast. In this episode, we have a fascinating conversation about the mind-brain connection and how this plays into mental health, how our minds differ from our brains  - and why learning the difference is important for self-regulation and SelfWork. Dr. Leaf also teaches listeners how to foster and cultivate the power of their own thinking and direct their own brain changes by providing a simple five-step roadmap to create sustainable, true change. Her technique, what she calls mind-management, helps facilitate talk between the conscious, the subconscious, and the nonconscious mind. And she's definitely into “what you can do about it.” Dr. Leaf defines five steps that, when followed closely, can get brainwaves flowing in a healthy way, optimizing brain function. So, in this episode sponsored by AG1, please sit back and listen in to what I hope will be eye-opening to all of you. Dr. Leaf wants you to know that your brain isn't broken when you're depressed - and it's so important to know that you're not broken either. BetterHelp, the #1 online therapy provider, has a special offer for you now! You can hear more about this and many other topics by listening to my podcast, SelfWork with Dr. Margaret Rutherford. Subscribe to my websiteand receive my weekly newsletter including a blog post and podcast!

The most dreaded phrase you can receive from a doctor or a friend: “it's all in your head.” Many people who have walked through the fires of physical pain have experienced the sinking feeling in their stomachs when someone suggests that their pain is in their head, because it feels like the person is accusing them of making up their pain; it feels like their pain is invalidated. Since our goal at Heal is to provide a holistic view of pain and healing, it would be as unfair to say that your pain is not real as it would be to suggest that physical pain never has mental and emotional roots to it. God designed our bodies to be interconnected, and often the unconscious lies we believe have huge impacts on our physical health. Joelle Jensen has experienced this firsthand, and I cannot wait for you to hear her testimony. After 25 years of chronic back pain, a technique addressing her anxieties and internal pressures completely relieved her pain. Considering the gospel, it makes total sense that God could both validate Joelle's pain and use a modern technique to heal her of it. Y'all. This episode is gold.

What are some of the gifts that have come out of this experience?   Guest Bio: Lacey Johnson is a doting wife and mom, self-belief enthusiast, and multi-passionate, award-winning journalist who sparks conversations that unlock hearts, energize minds, and celebrate the human experience. Having worked with a fascinating range of famed entrepreneurs, spiritual thought leaders, and top mental health professionals (including Deepak Chopra, Daymond John, Gabby Bernstein, and Dr. Caroline Leaf), her words can be read in a collective of top magazines and media sources including Oprah.com, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, POPSUGAR, O, The Oprah Magazine, Woman's Day and more – many of which have been syndicated by Apple News, MSN, and Yahoo! millions of times. With a deep intrigue for human beings, and a fiery passion for smacking her readers in the face with comfort and truth, she calls upon her vault of compelling experiences such as a family-wide tragedy in early childhood, life-long grief, domestic violence in young adulthood, infertility, a collective of personal and professional heartbreaks, and a near-death experience a year ago. Her writing and bold reporting unlock possibility and invite epiphany. While in the process of finishing a massive book project about transforming pain and setbacks into providence and power, she recently released a digital workbook as a prelude, entitled The Radical Life Renovation: A Guided Program to Anchor Joy, Explode with Confidence and Redesign Your Future. It's garnering rave reviews, grateful shares, and tearful praise from readers.
