The treatment of psychogenic movement disorders with suggestion is ethically justified.
Recent developments in our understanding of psychogenic movement disorders have not yet led to advances in treatment. A potentially beneficial treatment strategy is suggestion, the voluntary use by the physicians of techniques that introduce into the patient's mind a belief that he or she will be healed. Principalism, the dominant school of contemporary medical ethics, holds that the use of suggestion is not ethically justifiable because it undermines patient autonomy and degrades the doctor-patient relationship. However, evidence from a variety of sources (neuroimaging, anecdote, expert opinion, randomized controlled trials, and meta-analysis) supports the efficacy of suggestion as a treatment for psychogenic movement disorders. When issues of choice, consent, deceit, disclosure, and decision-making are analyzed from the perspective of an ethics of care, we see that suggestion may enhance patient autonomy and does not violate the trust between doctors and their patients. I conclude that suggestion is therefore an ethically justifiable treatment for patients with psychogenic movement disorders.

When someone fails to integrate new experiences, they could possibly be diagnosed as having a personality disorder to include Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). While all of us will encounter times when things are difficult, a BPD...
Of spoofing, spam, and Internet porn, it is probably the last creation of the Information Super Highway that has had the most adverse effect on the lives of many people. The immediate availability of – legal and illegal – pornographic images has made parental supervision nearly impossible and has ruined many relationships.
Like any addictive behavior, Internet porn addiction has both physiological and mental sides. The arousal that ensues creates a reaction in the brain and body. Like any drug, when the physical manifestation is linked to psychological aspect, this on-line viewing...
Let’s face it. More than likely you have the same brain and same physiology as the most prodigious genius and top Olympic athlete. Yes, an inventory of your brain sectors, organs, and muscle groups show a surprising similarity to the top performers. Yet, why haven’t you achieved such greatness? This is a question that I’ve asked for several decades. It surprised me what I discovered.
Our first obstacle is that each and every one of us is programmed to be mediocre. Think about this for a moment. Back when you were in school, two groups of people were often criticized. These were the...
