July 14th, 2008 autore

Instantant therapy, Publisher Pitagora, 2004 Bologna (Italy), A text on simple new methods of cure which can quickly resolve a wide range of clinical, psychological and educational problems. In the work relates a series of demonstrations carried out in public concerning cases resolved by and large on the spot. Techniques mentioned are also successfully related to chronic disease and certain pathologies considered irresolvable. Methods described go from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to Neuro-Digital Programming. The latter, formulated by the author, is essentially based on information transferred from one hemisphere to another, data contained and elaborated respectively in the right and left hemisphere of our brain. Within the text physiology, dream functions and neuro-etymology with author’s explanation concerning how words signify meaning.

A Psychosomatic Antivirus of Elia Tropeano

July 4th, 2008 autore

The idea of an antivirus came to the author’s mind while he was studying a case of gastritis. The patient was convinced that his problem could not be attributed to extrinsic factors as he followed a correct diet, led a regular life and did not make excessive use of any medicine. When asked by the author to think about something connected with his problem, the image of a company manager rebuking him with a certain tone of voice came to mind. He was then asked to make believe he could curtail the image of the company manager and the patient quickly reported that the malaise had disappeared. The episode confirmed one of his theories: past experiences, mental images, inner descriptions etc., hidden within our memory, within the right hemisphere of our brain, can cause psychosomatic disorders as time goes by. Thus, all we need to do is identify and correct such causes and resolve the problem. He tested the validity of the method with other psychosomatic disorders such as epilepsy, allergies, tumours, etc. and this proved to be effective. He then participated in a forum on the web ( and avowed that through his therapeutic techniques tumours could be easily eliminated thus he was looking for something more complex, for example degenerative diseases. A few days later he received the following message: I’M A 7 YEAR OLD BOY WHO HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED A GLIOMA TRUNCUS TUMOUR SINCE JANUARY 4TH 2005. I HAVE UNDERGONE CHEMOTHERAPY AND RADIOTHERAPY. NO IMPROVEMENTS ARE NOTICEABLE. AT THE MOMENT I AM ALMOST TOTALLY PARALYSED. NO SURGERY IS FEASIBLE UNLESS ARBORIZATION RETREATS. CAN THIS NEW THERAPY HELP ME? THANK YOU, I NEED YOUR HELP A HANDSOME YOUNG BOY ANDREA (ANDREW) The author contacted the young boy’s parents and after experimenting his therapy, which proved effective, the glioma rapidly disappeared and the young boy became perfectly healthy.

Dreams, in short

July 3rd, 2008 autore

Dreams perform various functions: they quickly help us find our sense of orientation when we wake up; they salvage data gathered during the day prior to sleeping and they upload all programmes related to behaviour and thought. Should we awake abruptly without dreaming we would encounter great difficulties moving around or coordinating simple movements. This is the central issue reported in an article written by Elia Tropeano which recently appeared on Internet. The article however does not mention the case of a school teacher who relates that one night, while she was studying for a state exam with a friend it got very late and she fell asleep on her books. She suddenly woke up and started screaming out in terror because she was unable to understand why the other woman was at her house. It took her a while before she was able to get a hold of herself and recognize the woman as her friend who was bewildered by the episode. Nor does the article mention the case of a woman who, having read the article, felt reassured about what had happened to her fifteen year old son. One night she heard a noise. She turned on the lights and saw her son walking around the room with great difficulty. He was unable to speak and explain what he was doing. At first she thought he had been hit by a stroke and did not know what to do. Her husband quickly intervened and they tried to assist him. Later on the son recovered completely and explained that his problems, including a paralysed arm, all began when he woke up. What had happened was that he woke up accidentally without experiencing a dream.

The physiology of Dreams

July 3rd, 2008 autore

The transition from a state of wakefulness to one of sleep comes about gradually and coincides with reduced bodily functions. Once a physiological loss reaches the critical level, the left hemisphere(dominant hemisphere of our brain) is activated and starts building upon images, sounds and sensations: dreams, with the aim of restoring those chemical-physical values which belong to a state of wakefulness. Once restored a new loss occurs and the cycle repeats itself for the entire period that we are asleep. Dreams can raise the chemical-physical parameters but need to be continuously interrupted in order to avoid high levels thus the risk of waking us up. Continuous interruptions induce a deeper state of amnesia proportional to the interruptions. When we dream, lacking total access to our right hemisphere, we are without identity, nor do we remember anything rather, our mnemonic function is restricted to those events which have occurred during the day. We cannot conceive time, distance or residence. The sole mnemonic function which remains concerns space-time which is activated by rapid access connections to the right hemisphere. Both hemispheres must be activated when we awake and more so when rapid access connections to the right hemisphere become more frequent. In this case the greater number of space-time coordinates are achieved, the more dreams are linked to real life.

Memory and Recollections in Neuro Digital Programming

July 3rd, 2008 autore

Recollections, according to Elia Tropeano, are nothing but the by product of compression processes perpetuated upon the three principle portrayal systems of information which make up a sensorial experience. This means that events, experiences, simple descriptions, etc. before reaching our memory are, as familiarly stated, “zipped” (compressed). Compression accounts for inevitable loss of specific information. This denotes that past events do not influence our experience rather the way they are portrayed. The process of compression is obvious when we think of the entrance channel to our memory which allows a modest quantity of information to be transferred, approx. 7, more or less two pieces simultaneously. At times compression produces irregular elements which obstruct the passage of information to our memory and the portrayal of real events remains at the access level for unlimited time. The learning process is the final result of a complex process of restriction, transmission and memory displacement. If asked to observe a street full of shops, people hustling and bustling, parked cars etc. and then told to give an account of the scene, we might remember the experience as a fixed image, motionless or a scene in motion without sound. Someone might recall the scene curtailed or in black and white. Others, might recall colour and natural dimensions though out of focus. We might remember the shops but not the vehicles or we might exclude people in order to remember the car. When a car accident occurred, the witness was convinced that the car involved in the accident was in motion. Another person remembered the car being motionless. One of the two had omitted a piece of information which did not alter in any way details concerning dynamics and responsibility.

Inside Out: How depression can infect a whole family

May 12th, 2008 Smyrne

Jane was nearly 40 years old when she came to see me for poor self-esteem. Despite her achievements, she never felt good about herself and was unable to sustain a relationship with a man.

She attributed much of her difficulty to her father, whom she described as angry and judgmental. “It seemed everything I did was never quite good enough for him,” she said.

Naturally, she internalized these criticisms and spent much of her life feeling flawed.

After a few months, she agreed to invite her father in for a session. When he came in with Jane’s mother, he did seem angry and short-tempered. He said for most of his life he had had “a short fuse” and didn’t take much joy in anything.

After further exploration, I suggested that he was depressed and had been most of his life. I explained that his irritability, along with his pessimism and negative worldview, were classic symptoms of depression.

Unfortunately, he disagreed with me and refused to get a second opinion. Read the rest of this entry »
