I haven't formed an opinion on whether or not I trust his theory, but if I had and extra $5,000 - $10,00 lying around, I'd check it out just out of curiosity. It would be fascinating to see the results of Keven's brain, and my own.
Here it the entire article (its not long) and here is the gist of what it says:
"I think we should start by looking at their brains. How would we ever know if it was just bad behavior or a brain acting badly unless we looked? Psychiatrists, whom these people come to see for help, are the only medical professionals who rarely look at the organ they treat. Psychiatrists still make diagnoses today as they did in 1841, when Abraham Lincoln was depressed: by talking to people and looking for symptom clusters. Imagine if a cardiologist or an orthopedic doctor acted that way!"If he's right, then we should all be able to solve our issues with the right chemicals and nourishment of our brain. That sounds way to simplistic to me, but it sure would be wonderful wouldn't it? No more cheating spouses, no more psychopathic murderers, no more ADDICTS.
A lot of people think he's a "quack" and some of the reviews I've read from people who have been to his clinic and some of their stories are alarming.
As of yesterday, Keven is seeing a doctor we had used two years ago. Some people also think his philosophy is wrong and that he is a "dangerous" doctor. There has been an interesting controversy surrounding him but out attorney thinks he's a great doctor for addicts so .... I am trusting her judgement.
What are your thoughts on brain scanning etc? Have you or anyone you know ever tried it? Just curious.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
