Is Alcoholism a Mother Trauma? #1

Re: do you have any experience with alcoholism?

Yes, I do, and some of it is very personal.

Many of my relatives were alcoholics, and I, myself, was something called an “event alcoholic.”

An event alcoholic goes on a bender only one or two times a year, but, when he does, it’s over-the-top and balls-to-the-wall.

One bender took me to the hospital, and another to a psych ward for an overnight visit.

(My gift of gab saved me from a three-day stay, and perhaps longer depending on the head shrink’s evaluation.)

Alcohol abuse has a lot to do with mothering and nurturing.

Freud was definitely right when he connected it to the sex force (especially masturbation) and the death force.

He called the first Eros, and his pupil, Wilhelm Stekel, named the other one Thanatos.

Eros and Thanatos are two sides of the same psychosomatic coin, like the Angel of Death (Angelique) in the 1979 movie All That Jazz.

Why is Freud discredited today? Because he was too close to the truth, so he was dismissed as a dirty old atheist.

John E. Sarno, M.D. (Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine) wrote …

“In view of the widespread Freud bashing of recent years I may be courting disapproval to state that my concepts descend from Freud’s clinical observations and theories. But I know this only in retrospect, for I did not set out to prove Freud right. My developing ideas were the consequence of clinical observations; they were not based on preconceived notions about the mindbody connection.”

Meanwhile, the American Psychiatric Association can’t cure alcoholism, so they’ve been busy redefining it.

Alcoholism used to come in two flavors …

alcohol abuse

alcohol dependence

Now both are grouped together into one category …

alcohol use disorder (AUD)

    The esophagus is associated with unresolved “oral” issues.

    This includes “heartburn.”

    Karl Menninger, M.D. (Love Against Hate, 1942, 1970) wrote …

    “Dr. Smith Ely Jelliffe used to say that the child’s first decision was whether ‘to holler or to swaller,’ when he discovers that the two cannot be done simultaneously. Yet simultaneous emotions exist in the heart of the child which he finds it is difficult to reconcile as he does crying and swallowing. How shall he resolve the problem if the same person who brings him his bottle also takes it away? No matter how ideal the mother is therefore, the child is bound to have both positive and negative feelings toward her.”

    Heartburn is also connected with those four or so grains of rice in the throat (or sometimes the chest) known as the parathyroid glands.–e-books.php

    Dr. John E. Sarno gets these amazing results with only generalities …

    Body Dowsing provides specifics.

    Man? Woman? Which one or ones? Who’s the matter with me?

      Bought his book about 10 years ago. Had trouble finding a doctor who does similar treatment. Since then I have tried everything and turns out Bikram Yoga has been my saving grace. Bikram not only has exponentially helped my back pain, but has helped me mentally too. Appreciate all you do, Atom!

    The four major Cognitive Shocks are …

    1) Change

    2) Sex

    3) Power

    4) Death

    The forces of Sex and Death (Eros and Thanatos) are BIGGIES.–illustrated.php

    Hi Atom,
    I want to buy a wooden product from Tokyo. Is it likely to be radioactive ?

      Re: I want to buy a wooden product from Tokyo. Is it likely to be radioactive?

      Yes, No, Maybe, and, without a Geiger counter, there’s no way to know for sure.

      Wayne Biddle (A Field Guide to Radiation, 2012) wrote …

      “Finding radioactive hotspots in Tokyo months after a reactor meltdown 160 miles away was not enough to budge the Japanese government. ‘Nobody stands in one spot all day,’ responded Kaoru Noguchi, head of Tokyo’s health and safety agency. ‘And nobody eats dirt.’

      “Such bureaucratic callousness is reminiscent of the cold war bravura of T.K. Jones, an undersecretary of defense in the Reagan administration, who declared in 1981 that a nation can survive nuclear war if there are enough shovels to go around.’ (The shovels would be for digging holes as fallout shelters.) It’s the dirt that does it,’ Jones explained about shielding the populace from radiation.”

      I’d be equally vigilant about anything coming from Washington state, the site of the “American Fukushima,” Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

    yes i have this problem mother earth and mother love

      We’re polluting Father Sky and Mother Earth.

      Ultimately, they are wholesale male and female traumas.

    Atom you’ve suggested that acids youth a person and minerals age a person. What are some midday foods with acids? meats? Cooked tomatoes?


    • August 27, 2016 @ 4:30 am Atom

      Minerals are necessary, so overloading from supplement abuse is a major problem.

      The primary pH regulator in the body is the sterol/fatty acid axis.

      Fatty acids (especially omega-3 oils) alkalize.

      Sterols (cholesterol, etc.) acidify.

      <> a previous blog entry on the subject <>

      Lipids are a group of organic molecules that are greasy to the touch, mostly insoluble in water, and mostly soluble in alcohol and ether.

      They have a wide diversity, so be careful what you “know” about them.

      Also, do you know your Lipid Type? More specifically, your Lipid Phenotype?

      Or do you know your Small Intestine Type? The small intestine (most active at 2:00 p.m.) plays a crucial role in determining your Lipid Phenotype.

      Lipids include fats, sterols, fatty acids, waxes, phospholipids, fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K), etc.

      Lipids are subject to circadian rhythms, so they have different effects during different times of the day and night (and during different seasons).

      Generally, if you get your lipids from natural foods and eat them according to the proper Growth Zone Time, it’s hard to screw up.

      It’s easy to screw up if you supplement, by supplementing at (1) the wrong time and (2) in excess.

      According to The Lancet (Jun. 29, 1996), “There have been previous reports of lipoid pneumonia being indistinguishable from bronchial cancer but this is the first description of fish oil resulting in lipoid pneumonia.”

      First description? Hardly. MANY cases have been recorded of fish oils and squalene causing lipoid pneumonia.

      (Squalene is from sharks, and is sold as a supplement and used in vaccines as a replacement for mercury. It’s alleged to be a cause of Gulf War Syndrome.)

      According to Andy Coghlan (“Right kind of fat gives body the edge over TB,” New Scientist, Aug. 30, 2003), over-consuming fish oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids and eicopentenoic acids raise the risk of contracting tuberculosis.

      Don’t forget to eat your lipids during the proper Growth Zone Time.

        There are two ways to die …

        (1) death by acid

        (2) death by alkali

        In other words, we can choose to die from …

        (1) mineral underload

        (2) mineral overload

        Or …

        (1) excess sterols and steroids

        (2) excess essential fatty acids [1]

        These two ways to die are also called …

        (1) cancer

        (2) old age

        Cancer is the cure for old age, and old age is the cure for cancer.

        We’re caught between the rock and the hard place unless we walk the razor’s edge.

        We die from either …

        (1) tumor

        (2) ulcer

        The razor’s edge is the Middle Way …

        (3) colloid

        Our flesh can be as hard as a martial arts fist and punch through a wall, or it can be as soft as a pillow.

        Cecilia Wessner, Art Friedland, Michael Moyer, & Gunjan Sinha (“FYI,” Popular Science, Sept. 2000) wrote …

        “The pH of water can range from about 3 in peat swamps to very alkaline conditions of about 9 in lakes. Naturally acidic water may result from dissolved organic acids, as is the case in a peat swamp, or from sulfur deposits. Alkaline waters usually result from mineral deposits.”

        What can you find in an acidic peat swamp?

        An almost totally preserved BOG BODY, including the skin, and the internal organs, but the bones are dissolved. [2]

        What you can find in an alkaline lake?

        Bones, but the rest of the body is missing.

        Dwight L McKee, M.D. (Emanuel Revici, M.D.: A Review of His Scientific Work, 1985) wrote …

        “In general, Revici found an anabolic character for the positively charged alcohols, amines, and amides and a catabolic character for the negatively charged acids, aldehydes, and ketones.

        “Using his general method for the recognition of this action, Revici separated the vitamins into two groups with A, D, B6, and B12 showing catabolic activity, whereas vitamins B1, B2, K, E, pantothenic acid, niacin, nicotinamide, and folic acid were found to have anabolic properties.”


        [1] Essential fatty acids cause an adrenal response and excess alkalinity.

        [2] Even the fingerprints are preserved. Acidity, low oxygen, and cool temperature are necessary to create a bog body.
