Is their go-to advice of using shrinks and "mindfulness" working?
The U.S. CDC is the gold standard around the world for curing infectious diseases like AIDS or Ebola. It's no exaggeration to say, the CDC is the "Michael Jordan" of infectious disease. So it is easy to see why so many smart people just blindly take the CDC's advice in regards to trying to improve their behavioral health, like healing early trauma or obesity.
However, the truth shows, this blind faith is not well placed and has been a deadly mistake of titanic proportions.
Like Michael Jordan's basketball greatness did NOT transfer into baseball. He was horrible. Even he admitted such. The shocking truth is; the CDC's greatness does NOT transfer into behavioral health. Their results are also horrible.
Look no further than the #1 behavioral health project of the CDC for the past 20 years—obesity.
What is the obesity report card of the CDC using an army of shrinks with countless PH.Ds spending our billions?
The CDC's utter failure here has caused millions of families to be ripped apart from downstream problems of obesity.
Above results come from the CDC's common advice of using shrinks and meditation to supposedly improve behaviors. In the '80s the CDC recommended Zen, now it's mindfulness—never mind it's pseudoscience and faux-Buddhism.
So regarding ACEs trauma; the CDC is regurgitating the same old failed quack advice—shrinks and meditation.
These have a "success rate" of about 7%. A near 100% failure rate, as empirical results (like above) and top studies show.
The final shocker, since the 1950's to present day, many ground breaking studies have shown; the individual (with guided knowledge and safe peers) is a better "therapist" to themselves when compared to shrinks. This fact doesn't even include cost, stigma, the slow response and inconvenience of seeing a shrink..., assuming you find a good one—which are very rare.
So do you want to be quacked by the "experts" or be your own expert at PUUR?
