Guérir des #maladies_mentales en soignant l’intestin, ce « deuxième cerveau » ? | Big Browser

Nul hôpital psychiatrique ni médicament ne parvenaient à guérir Mary de ses troubles obsessionnels compulsifs et de ses troubles du déficit de l’attention avec hyperactivité – qui se manifestaient par des pensées effrayantes et des comportements répétitifs. Jusqu’au jour où, raconte The Verge, un psychiatre de Boston aborda sa maladie sous un angle différent. Il lui demanda comment allait son intestin, si elle avait des problèmes de digestion, de constipation, de reflux acide... La réponse était oui. Le médecin lui prescrivit des probiotiques, ces « bactéries bénéfiques qui habitent notre intestin ».

L’effet fut probant, tous les symptômes ayant disparu au bout d’un an. Rien d’étonnant pour le psychiatre, le docteur Greenblatt, pour qui « l’intestin est vraiment notre second cerveau ». « Il y a plus de neurones dans l’appareil digestif que partout ailleurs, excepté le #cerveau », explique-t-il.

From Boston to Beirut : A Comparison of “Terror” | Al Akhbar English

Despite the fact that the perpetrators and the act itself snugly fit into the legal definition of “terrorism” by the US and UK authorities, the media coverage by British and American media outlets described it as a “bomb blast” from a possible “suicide attack.”

More so, as media critic and former editor-at-large of Al-Akhbar English Emily Dische-Becker in Berlin observed to the Institute of Public Accuracy, many of the foreign news agencies took great pains to add that the car bomb explosion occurred in a “Hezbollah stronghold.”

Virtually all reports on the attack on the residential neighborhood of Roueiss noted Hezbollah’s military involvement in Syria, therefore subtly inferring that the attack was justifiable despite the fact that the victims were innocent civilians. Those killed will not have the leisure of being named and cared for by extensive human-oriented stories, slick infographics, painful photo galleries, and a barrage of follow-up tales of coping the day after.
