Toxic Dormitories & Mold

While a college education is a necessary educational step for most people, colleges and universities are under increasing scrutiny due to their high cost and poor performance on a variety of measures.

The Dissolution of Gender

It is nothing short of astounding that after millions of years of human history, the fundamental facts of human gender are becoming blurry. There are many reasons for this, but one, which I have not seen discussed, as likely a cause, is the influence of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC’s).

Whole Psychiatry: Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Dr. Robert Hedaya’s concept of Whole Psychiatry looks at both traditional psychiatry and functional medicine to get a complete view of a patient’s psychological and physical health. This armchair discussion with Dr. Hedaya and Rabbi Shais Taub, a leading authority on Jewish mysticism, will compare and contrast the medical and mystical viewpoints. These vital insights […]

General Anesthesia May Unmask Hidden Cognitive Decline

A new study links surgery and cognitive decline. A very well-executed study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease (2018; 62(1):319-333. doi:10.3233/JAD-170496) has shown that certain individuals demonstrate a significant decline in their mental abilities following surgery requiring general anesthesia, in this case, for total knee arthroplasty (knee replacement surgery).

As a clinical psychopharmacologist and the pioneer in the application of functional medicine to neuropsychiatric disorders, I have decades of experience successfully treating treatment-resistant depression.

Minding the Body Means More Than Just Taking a Pill Even though we recognize that physiological processes hugely influence cognition, emotion, and behavior, too many therapists still tend to practice as if treatment should focus entirely on the mind, says functional medicine psychiatrist Robert Hedaya. There’s a need to analyze the body as well as […]

Hope and Healing Research

Excellent ‘recipe’ book for how to understand how hope can heals us. Dr. Hedaya was recently interviewed by the Integrative Medicine Clinician’s Journal. He was asked about the role of hope in the healing process.  This is his response: “Hope is critical in all healing. A book written by Jerome Frank Persuasion and Healing, deals with this […]
