Mental illnesses, whether they be nervousness, depressions, phobias, neuroses and psychoses, can be healed and prevented. Mental illness usually results from a toxic body and poor health. If the body is kept clean, wholesome and free from toxic materials, then physiological manifestations of disease, could not develop from purely psychological causes.

Accumulated waste products and poisons from extraneous sources, are irritating nerve cells in the brain. They cause all types of abnormal thoughts and produce mental illness. Dr. Herbert Shelton said, "Practices that increase mental health are: Fasting and eating sparingly, eating a raw fruit and vegetable diet, obtaining sufficient sleep to replenish nerve energy, meditation, being aware, vigorous exercise, receiving adequate sunshine, in taking fresh air, being free of toxins, daily mental exercises, self confidence and self mastery." Dr. Shelton further said, "Practices that decrease mental health are: overeating, eating cooked foods, eating non-vegetarian, unnatural and/or artificial and/or adulterated foods, detrimental habits (alcohol-tobacco-coffee-drugs, etc.), inadequate sleep, lack of rest, lack of vigorous exercise, lack of sunshine, polluted air, impure water, experiencing worry, stress and frustrations on a continuous basis."

Dr. Wilhelm Reich, the famed psychiatrist and psychoanalyst said, "It's not the psyche (mind), but the soma (body)". Reich's successful psychotherapeutic approach to neuroses and psychoses, was to manipulate and relieve the patient's muscular body tension. Reich chose not to use the Freudian, orthodox psychoanalytic approach of talking to the patient lying on the couch. Reich proved that after manipulating the mentally ill patient's muscular tension, the patient's mental repressions, inhibitions, neuroses and psychoses, got better and disappeared.

If one fasts and/or maintains a proper diet, one will not have any negative emotions. Do not eat when you are mentally or emotionally depressed because "Good digestion depends upon emotional poise." Particular energies exist within our foods that effect our thoughts and our bodily functions. In an experiment, rats fed proper nutrition, showed an increase in weight, were strong, healthy, peaceful, playful and reproduced without a single abortion or death. Another group of rats who ate unwholesome foods, were anemic, lost weight, were not active or lively, were ferocious, fought each other to death, were neurotic and died before the rats who ate wholesome foods.

What we eat, assimilate and absorb, effects how we feel, think, perceive and respond to the world around us. Improper food eating causes depression, anger, fear, instability, anxiety and other forms of emotional dysfunction. The brain and body are nutritionally interrelated and interdependent. Deficiencies of Vitamin B1, B3, B6, and C, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium and Magnesium, cause mental illness.

Close your eyes to mentally feel better. You cannot be mentally ill when your eyes are closed. You can only be mentally ill when your eyes are open. With your eyes open, you may be perceiving and deciding things incorrectly and irrationally. If you are nervous, depressed, phobic, neurotic or psychotic, to feel better and to get well, close your eyes and keep them closed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, i.e. every moment you can! Closing the eyes, rests the brain and mind. An electric rhythm starts as soon as the eyes close and ceases immediately when they open. This rhythm serves to clear "negative charges" from the brain. Activity of the eyes prevents recuperation from occurring. Nervous energy is produced by the blessed elixir of sleep and/or closing your eyes. Sleep and/or closing your eyes are nature's great restorative healing processes. Nervous energy is used up by all the activities of life. Nervous energy is used up by physical activity, by digestion, by emotions, by thinking, by seeing, by hearing and by sex. After activity, the brain grows weary and the physical demand for sleep and/or closing the eyes is great. Nerve cell fatigue or exhaustion, is deep seated and much time is required to recover.

It is the lowering of vital energy in the nerve cells which leads to physical and mental trouble. Carried to an extreme, it leads to a "nervous breakdown". Close your eyes to replenish your nerve cells and your nerves will feel better and get better. Nobody can make you mentally ill with their verbal abuse to you. No one can take advantage of you without your permission. Nothing can bother you unless you let it. "Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never harm you". only your auto suggestion and your personal belief that this verbal abuse is true and that you deserve it, can cause you to be mentally ill.

If another person does not physically touch your body, space or property, then this other person, cannot effect you. Nobody can control you, but yourself. Nobody can hypnotize you. Hypnosis is nothing but auto-suggestion. You can only be hypnotized if you believe that the words the hypnotist utters to you, are true and should be applied to you.

Self control is the great law of mental health. Be not quick to anger. Learn to control your emotions. Don't react, only act. Analyze every one of your thoughts before you act. Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it. We are our experiences and what our attitudes towards these experiences are. "As we think, so we are." When awake, always be in the "here and now." If you are loving, you can't be mentally ill. Love heals all mental illness. Give, show and tell love to ourselves, everyone, all animals and all plants. Touch, warmly grasp their hands and limbs, hug and kiss every living being. Nobody can make you happy. Only you can make yourself happy.

Incorrect overindulgence in sex with resultant loss of nutrients in men's and women's ejaculations, causes nervousness, anxiety, fear, fatigue and mental illness. When you have sex have all the orgasms you wish but do not ejaculate. Injaculate but do not ejaculate. Injaculation is an orgasm without ejaculation. By injaculation, the semen is recycled and reabsorbed into the blood stream. Everyone can learn not to ejaculate, can learn to injaculate, can have as many very pleasurable orgasms as they wish and as frequently as they wish.

Stress exists in every aspect of life. If we cope successfully with stress, we have good mental health. If we do not cope successfully with stress, we have poor mental health, become debilitated and enervated. All social relationships require compromise. A good index of mental health, is flexibility and ability to compromise. Forgive and be tolerant of ourselves, everyone and everything. To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. Forgiveness is healing. If others have mistreated you, they have acted out of ignorance. Can you not forgive ignorance? Mary Baker Eddy said, "An intelligent person will never insult me and no other can."

Maturity is the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even. Hate and revenge on someone, will cause you to be mentally ill. You will never be happy unless you have your mind free of hate. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Nonviolence means avoiding not only external violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him". The victim who will not forgive, will often live in psychological bondage to the victimizer, leading to a kind of paralysis. To forgive is to set a prisoner free and the prisoner is you. A proverb says that when you seek revenge on someone you had better dig two graves. One grave is for the person upon you seek revenge and one grave is for yourself. Learn to love, forgive and help your enemies.

Mental and physical health cannot be divided. The mind and body are not separate things but one entity. We feel and think with our bodies, and sensations arising in the body, in turn, express themselves through what we call thoughts or feelings. Every cell in our body has a mind, thinks and remembers. There are varying degrees of mental health and mental illness. Dr. Herbert Shelton said, "There is no such thing as absolute mental health" ... "Perfect mental health is not found anywhere among mankind" ... "Mental disease depends upon the same causes for their origin and continuance as do those other pathologies that we call physical disease". .Nobody should be confined in so-called mental state hospitals.

Mental hospitals are barbaric and are using brain surgery, electroshock, tranquilizing drugs and other means of abusing mental patients. These mental institutions don't help anyone, don't work and make those confined, more mentally deranged and incurable. No so called sexual criminals should be punished and confined to prisons. Whether these so called sexual criminals are pedophiliacs (child molesters) or rapists, etc., they can be helped and rehabilitated.

They should be lovingly re-educated not to pursue sexual activities that hurt other living beings. Sexual criminals are irrational and mentally ill. Men and women become so called sexual criminals because they lack self esteem, are mentally ill and have never learned how to have loving, satisfactory relationships with loving members of the opposite and same sex. The governmental authorities have a vested financial interest to perpetuate the myth that sexual criminals can't be rehabilitated and must be punished.

The general, uneducated public, hate these sexual criminals. The uneducated public do not know the facts about sex and therefore do not discuss sex in a rational manner. Consequently, the uneducated public fear sex. What they fear and don't understand, the public misinterpret and develop into hate. The above suggestions that should be applied to sexual criminals, should be also appropriately applied to all other so called criminals.

Closing all prisons and mental state hospitals, would save the government billions and billions of dollars, wipe out our national, federal and state debts and balance the budget. Never hurt or punish any living being. No living being should be confined to any kind of institution or cage. Every living being can learn to be loving and respectful of every other living being's body, mind, space and property. Every living being can learn not to be irrational or mentally ill. Mental illnesses, whether they be nervousness, depressions, phobias, neuroses and psychoses, can be healed and prevented!
