Client Testimonial: HBOT Improves Child’s Autism

It’s one thing to hear and learn about how HBOT (Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy) heals kids with autism and improves their quality of life beyond your wildest imagination…But to experience it….is truly a blessing.

In this video, the father of a 7-year-old boy with autism shares his experience. His son went from hyperactivity, no eye contact, preverbal, unable to have reciprocal interaction with anyone, gross and fine motor incoordination…to all these symptoms being significantly improved in just under 20 sessions of HBOT, combined with dietary changes and supplements.

Psychiatry Without Pills

What do I mean by “psychiatry without pills”? To answer this, we must first understand mainstream psychiatry’s current approach and the problems associated with it.

For the last 60+ years, the main theory for the causation and treatment of mental illness has been the chemical imbalance theory. Based on that theory, conventional psychiatrists use a slew of psychopharmaceuticals to reduce the symptoms of mental illness.

But the theory of chemical imbalance has never actually been proven! I argue that our basic understanding about the cause of mental illness is faulty. Read more

Meet Dr. Aruna Tummala, Holistic Psychiatrist & Founder of Trinergy Health

Hi, I’m Dr. Aruna Tummala, holistic psychiatrist and founder of Trinergy Health. I believe that mainstream psychiatry as it is practiced today presents a tremendous dis-service to the patient, their family and even to the physician practicing it!

In fact, psychopharmacology (the practice of using psychiatric pharmaceuticals to alleviate the symptoms of mental illness) is based on a FAULTY theory.

There is a softer, gentler approach to recovering your physical and mental wellness. It is time for a paradigm shift in the field of psychiatry – especially child psychiatry. Read more

Whodunnit??? A story of a psychiatric murder/suicide.

Whodunnit??? A Story of a Psychiatric Murder/Suicide

Who is the murderer? The patient? The psychiatrist? The pills & big Pharma? The system? A strong argument for a paradigm shift in current psychiatric practice.

In February 2022, I received an email in my inbox from my professional liability company. The email described a legal allegation made against a psychiatrist and the verdict. As a psychiatrist myself, my interest was piqued and I read through it. Only to find myself deeply sad and disturbed. Here is the case I copied verbatim followed by my thoughts, my interpretation about what happened to this gentleman, how I would have treated him and my suggestions for how to avoid such tragedies in the future. I am intentionally italicizing my response to differentiate from the case vignette.

GMO foods and link to leaky gut

Why I Love Ayurveda…GMO Foods and the Link to Leaky Gut

Why I love Ayurveda?

5000 years ago, ancient seers of India figured leaky gut as the root cause for all diseases. How? I have no idea. But ancient texts talk about observation of nature around us and self awareness. Their intuition was that we are not different from the plants, animals and insects around us. That, what happens to nature will affect us and vice versa. That “micro-cosm reflects the macro-cosm.” Read more

Transplant patient rejected for exercising health choice in the absence of informed consent

Isn’t this a better title than the one CBS had about the transplant patient in Boston?

I did not intend to write about covid for my first actual article on Substack. After all I am a psychiatrist and I should stay in my lane, right?

CBS news recently ran a story today titled, “Hospital refusing heart transplant for man who won’t get vaccinated.”

But I feel called to comment on this CBS news article today. In the last two years of this pandemic, I have not felt as disappointed or as saddened, as I am today. Disappointed with the polarized discussion on social media about this issue. Sad because this article has made it clear that art of medicine is truly dead; nuance and personalized medicine is dead.
