Stability can be regained

The main part of the book deals with the various ways of regaining mental stability. The focus is on our own actions. It’s about “crossing the symbolic bridge” from being a passive patient to becoming an expert on your illness, taking control of your life and mental health.

In each of the chapters you will find an explanation of the interconnections and, based on them, very specific measures on how you can tackle every single aspect – this flower – for yourself.

Here are a few “flowers” from this bouquet of possibilities:

    • Why is it important to focus on your healthy parts?
    • How can we counter unhelpful thoughts and feelings, avoid catastrophizing, talk about feelings and communicate better, and what role does the “inner team” play in this?
    • How can unhelpful beliefs be recognized and changed? What does good self-care mean?
    • What are the first steps towards recovery?
    • Why do neurotransmitters play such an important role?
    • What are these neurotransmitters made of, where do their components come from, how can they function better?
    • Why are intact cell membranes and functioning mitochondria so important for the brain and the psyche and what role do omega-3 fatty acids play in this?
    • What is the significance of vitamin C, vitamin D and lithium as neuromodulators?
    • Why is brain-friendly nutrition essential and what does it consist of?
    • Which 47 substances does the brain need and what happens if there is a deficiency?
    • What role does the thyroid gland play in mental health and what does migraine have to do with the psyche?
    • What insights has science gained in recent years? Here I present 17 different studies on this topic. You can find part of it in detail in the blog on this website.
