Biomedical Psychiatry Evolves To Include Current & Ancient Wisdom

Judy Susanne Reis Tsafrir MD is a board certified, conventionally trained adult and child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, a Harvard Medical School faculty member, with a private practice of holistic adult and child psychiatry located in Newton, Massachusetts. She maintains a deep curiosity about development and healing, and with an open mind uses diverse approaches based upon biomedical psychiatry for evolved treatment strategies.

She is familiar with a traditional medical/psychiatric diagnostic and treatment paradigm and is now much more drawn to the functional medicine, biomedical psychiatry model. She addresses the root causes of illness, rather than simply suppressing symptoms with pharmaceuticals.

She is also skilled in the use of energetic/spiritual methodologies, and is trained in a variety of energetic approaches including Kundalini Yoga, Reiki, Astrology, the Tarot, and Shamanism, and includes these modalities when there is interest.

As they say in thousands of meeting rooms, “It works if you work it.”

You will much enjoy her spirited and straightforward assessment and fresh maps for next steps in the evolution of biomedical psychiatry.

Consider: No Boundaries

I chose a bridge as the symbol for my practice. I am drawn to consideration and inclusion of disparate contrasting elements in my understanding of people and situations. I like to keep the past and the present, the traditional and innovative, the ordinary and the sacred, the heart, mind, body and soul. It is only through healing ourselves, can we most effectively contribute to healing the planet.

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode

210 Steven Gundry MD, discusses his new, very interesting book The Plant Paradox on the challenges with lectins and leaky gut leading to brain challenges, weight gain, and emotional unpredictability.

He has discovered unconventional truths about human nutrition. The Gundry MD philosophy is a radical departure from the traditional dietary “wisdom” which has failed so many Americans over the past few decades. His research may offer a breakthrough for those who have struggled for years with energy levels, chronic body maladies, and overall health. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked – Dr. Gundry would like to offer you peer-reviewed hope.

The Gundry Perspective Evolves

For over thirty years, he practiced as one of the world’s pre-eminent experts in heart surgery. My experiences took me to new frontiers of medical science. He was a driving force behind major breakthroughs in medical technology and surgical procedures – breakthroughs that revolutionized the way doctors save lives.

But back in 2001, while he was Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda University, he was asked to treat a chronically ill, overweight patient. This man was considered a hopeless case, someone who couldn’t be helped even by surgery. But “hopeless cases” have been a specialty of mine over the years, and he was willing to take on this man’s challenge when no one else would.

Dr. Gundry discovered that the patient had actually reversed his heart-threatening symptoms – symptoms he was told were inoperable – with nothing but a combination of natural, dietary nutrients. This led him to pursue further research of his own. The conclusions he made were unmistakable… and they led directly to the foundation of GundryMD.com.

New Microbe Rules Apply

“The key to strong, sustainable health lives in all of us arrives in the form of beneficial microbes. These “good bacteria” are in danger of dying out, due to dietary and environmental issues that overload our systems with threatening “bad” microbes. Once you begin taking care of your “good” microbes – or, as I like to call them, “your gut buddies” – you can begin an incredible transformation.”

Dr. Gundry provides exceedingly interesting detail on his views regarding lectins in his interview, next here at CBJ/210. Must listen. His views may be controversial for some, and yet they appear to significantly contribute to healing or he couldn’t document these observations with hard data. His explanations matter.

Skeptical? Stay tuned here at CBJ, we will address both sides of this interesting issue.
