Great repost of a Dr’s response to the question “do you believe in natural therapies for cancer?”.
Interestingly my partner & I have been discussing this a lot lately as there are a number of patients in this situation at the hospital where he is an intern.

As an occupational therapist I work with a lot of children who have ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders that cause significant challenges with attention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Some of these children despite consistent intervention are unable to successfully participate in their primary occupational roles (student, players, siblings and friends). The worst thing about working with these kids when they are not medicated is that their self-esteem deteriorates in front of your eyes because of their chronic deprivation of success. These kids can describe what they should be doing or have done but are just unable to make it happen & they don’t know why. Reducing the stigma associated with medication for children with various psychological and developmental conditions.
I kind of don’t mind this polished version its nice to see a central female character owning it.
Michelle Dean on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” and whether Virginia Johnson was really so sexually liberated: http://nyr.kr/1c6dazC
“The Johnson of this show never makes a misstep, never seems seized by either regret or indecision. She becomes more like what the culture seems to want from ‘liberation’—a woman who has left the judgment of others behind, who doesn’t give a damn, who in her new omniscience sees both past and future clearly—and less like any recognizable human being who has ever lived.”

What will be another chapter in our own Horrible History… Mandatory detention of asylum seekers is not a solution just a cruel and undignified practice.
Waleed Aly presents in this article for the Sydney Morning Herald the uncomfortable truth about the inherent nature of Australia’s off shore processing policies. The reality is that the crux of the policy is to deter asylum seekers by offering up a fate that’s less desirable than the horrors they are fleeing. The whole situation is an inhumane mess that needs a whole lot more than a Royal Commission to be sorted out and unfortunately it seems many Australians feel these brutal approaches are justified. These policies are costing Australia in an economically and socially. Amnesty International has condemned our country’s actions and rightly so. It has never been ok in a global sense to detain people without explanation and clear timelines. Personally I see the recent riots and unrest as being the logical outcome of such inhumane treatment. Shame Australia. The UNHCR has also condemned the detention centre on Manus Island in their report which points out that detaining people on an open-ended basis without individual assessment amounts to a breach of international law. It also raises concerns about the possibility of resettling people found to be refugees in PNG (the Abbot government’s current policy). At the very minimum clear dates for processing need to be provided to current detainees as it seems this level of uncertainty is one largest contributors to dissonance and poor mental health among the detainee population. Even previous Liberal Prime Minister Malcom Fraser knows the current situations is dangerous and inhumane. How long will this horror continue?
