Channeling The Powers Of Nature: An Interview With A Naturopath

Published

on

Robert Bailie first became interested in Naturopathy while managing the occupational health and safety and rehabilitation department of a large corporation in Australia. He noticed that injured employees enjoyed a quicker recuperation period, and therefore an earlier return to normal duties when they underwent Naturopathic treatment. While carrying out a course in Naturopathic studies in Sydney in 1996, he discovered, and quickly also became fascinated with the science of Homoeopathy. Here Robert uncovers the history and secrets of these ancient forms of alternative healing:

What exactly is Naturopathy and Homeopathy?

Naturopathy is a complete system of western natural medicine; it includes the use of Botanic Medicine, Nutrition, Homeopathy and manipulative techniques. It is a holistic system in that it addresses the person as a whole –physical, mental and emotional. It is often termed ‘preventative medicine’ because of its ability to assess a propensity to disease, thereby preventing its manifestation. Naturopathy addresses a person’s health through extensive investigation into lifestyle, nutrition and medical history, and provides healing therapies and detoxification techniques accordingly. Diagnostic methods include iridology or naturopathic diagnostics of nails, skin or tongue, as well as conventional diagnostic methods such as lab tests or ultrasounds.

Homeopathy is a system of vibrational medicine, its medicines are diluted far beyond molecular existence but retain the imagesenergetic aspects of the original substance. It therefore has an energetic effect on the organism which in turn has physical, emotional and mental balancing effects. It is a system based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ or that a potentized substance which causes a set of symptoms in a healthy individual, can cure similar symptoms in a sick person. It is a process of symptom matching remedy to disease state –mental, emotional or physical. Limited doses of the remedy are given in order to stimulate the inherent healing powers of the organism and this is followed by a period of improvement often leading to cure. The ideal of Homeopathy is to achieve rapid cure in the most harmless and effective way.

 

What is the history of these specific forms of medicine and how do their modern day practices differ from the original?

HippocratesNaturopathy, like herbalism, has been developing since the beginning of time for man on earth. Ancient manuscripts on natural therapy are found in every major archeological excavation site. Hippocrates (460BC) is considered the father of Naturopathy. He described and taught the very principles still applied by modern Naturopaths such as “let food be your medicine,” and he relied on the healing powers of nature. Aesculapius was the first to utilize toxic substances for treating disease and therefore is considered the father of modern pharmaceutical medicine. Naturopathy has evolved from those days, and today has set standards for education and training and is very much grounded in modern science.

Samuel HahnemannHomeopathy was discovered by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He became disillusioned with the toxic medical practices of his day and resigned to the translation of medical/pharmacological texts when he discovered the law of ‘like cure like.’ He firstly experimented on himself with Cinchona bark which was used to treat malaria and found that it caused malaria type symptoms to him. He then experimented on his peers with diluted remedies to avoid toxic effects and gradually discovered that potentization of diluted substances caused them to gain in therapeutic effect while eliminating toxic effects. Hahnemann published the Organon of Medicine which outlines the principles and practice of Homeopathy. This same treatise remains the most important treatment manual for Homeopaths to this day.

Naturopathy has been described as a pseudoscience. What are your opinions on this label? And where is the proof that Naturopathic and Homeopathic medicines work?

Naturopaths are trained in Anatomy/Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Symptomatology, Diagnosis and Pathology. Are these not sciences? Herbs have been studied for many years and so have vitamins and minerals and science has acknowledged and confirmed the physiological effects of these Naturopathic medicines. In our modern age of information it is very simple to find clinical studies on herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies. The European Commission has gone so far as to regulate the supply of herbs, vitamins and Homeopathic remedies. Science is about the constant discovery and study of our environment, it is progressive, and if certain healing techniques are not currently understood, they most definitely will be in the future. The greatest proof of efficacy for Naturopathy and Homeopathy is the increased popularity they enjoy worldwide.

 

How do people benefit by using Naturopathic and Homeopathic remedies over more widely accepted western medicines?

All real natural healing techniques work in the same direction; they address the causes of illness, and employ methods to support the organism so as to stimulate its own healing capabilities. Symptoms are just the manifestation of disease; they are the way an imbalanced organism expresses itself in an attempt to heal itself. Symptoms are never suppressed in alternative medicine. Natural medicine has no side effects or toxicity. Pharmaceutical medicine on the other hand is mostly based on suppression of symptoms, thereby creating chronic illness and dependency. Just look at the accompanying leaflet in your prescription medication, which lists some of the usual side effects.

 

Are the remedies always specialized to directly deal with specific conditions, or are there any general well-being remedies that you would recommend for general daily use?

In Naturopathy treatment protocols are individualized for every patient. Treatment is based on the requirements of the organism as a whole, although specific herbs or supplements are also used to ‘target’ a particular ailment. In Homeopathy there are very specific remedies for acute illness or acute exacerbations of a chronic disease which afford quick relief or treatment. These are always based on the similarity of symptoms and remedy. This is called ’acute prescribing.’ However, I believe, the greatest expression of Homeopathy lies in ‘constitutional prescribing’ based on personality types. These latter remedies have a general as well as local effect but serve to tone up the entire organism, boost immunity, balance emotions and bring a state of wellness.

I would recommend a daily dose of 1000mg vitamin C for all adults; children have less – 250mg to 500mg. The virtues of vitamin C are way too many to list here – antioxidant, immune boosting and connective tissue integrity to name a few. I would also recommend a glass of warm water with the juice of 1/2 a lemon (or 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar) first thing in the morning. This has a great cleansing effect throughout the body. A carrot juice a day is better than any multivitamin or mineral, especially if juiced with celery, beetroot and a bit of fresh ginger!

Can Naturopathy and Homeopathy help with conditions that are considered long term such as cancers or Thyroid imbalances or mental illness?

Both Naturopathy and Homeopathy are especially useful in the management of chronic disease. This is the area where these systems excel. I usually employ Homeopathy for all sorts of mental illness and it is always easier if patients are not medicated, however, most are. Thyroid imbalances usually come along fine in time, and symptoms are regulated very quickly with Homeopathic remedies. The treatment of patients with cancer requires a comprehensive treatment protocol including herbs, mega doses of vitamins-antioxidants, Homeopathy, nutrition and other more specialized minerals and treatments. No matter what stages a disease has progressed, it is always possible to afford relief, lessen the suffering and increase quality of life. I think the only condition that can not be treated is narrow mindedness.

Do these forms of medication work on a long-term basis treating a problem so it will not return, or are they more quick short-term fixes?

Benefits from treatment occur quite early, however certain conditions do require many months of treatment to fully balance out, if they ever will. So I will certainly provide a quick fix to alleviate the suffering while working towards complete cure in time.

How much do external influences such as lifestyle, diet or fitness influence the effectiveness of Naturopathic or Homeopathic remedies? vitamins

Lifestyle, diet and fitness are crucial to a positive outcome and these are dealt with in great detail especially in Naturopathy.

Can people make their own Naturopathic or Homeopathic remedies or medicines?

People can make their own home natural remedies and Naturopathy seeks to encourage and train the patient to do so. Homoeopathic remedies are not usually made at home and should only be prescribed by a qualified practitioner.

Do you believe that Naturopathy and Homeopathy can be as effective as or even more effective than Western Medicines?

herbs-spicesAs a practitioner, I have always sought to provide my patients with the best advice as to their choice of treatment and that includes pharmaceuticals and surgery. Certain conditions require pharmaceutical drugs; there is no question about that. For example insulin dependent diabetics need their insulin even though we may achieve a reduction in its requirement and delay the onset of the disease using natural methods. People that have had their Thyroid Glands destroyed or removed will always need Thyroxine. I have never rejected a treatment that is effective and reasonably safe and in the best interests of my patient even if it comes from the medical world. Having said that, and with complete respect to medical practitioners, their knowledge and training, I think that pharmaceutical medicine has largely been a failure in the treatment of chronic disease. I think that while surgery has advanced greatly, pharmaceutical medicine has not kept up with scientific developments. After 15 years of practice in Naturopathy and Homeopathy, I know that natural medicine is highly effective, safe, ethical and affordable in the treatment of chronic disease.

The Physicians For Informed Consent Ask If The MMR Vaccine Is More Dangerous Than The Measles

Published

on

What Happened: The Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) are a group of doctors and scientists from around the world who have come together to support informed consent when it comes to mandatory vaccine measures. Their information is based on science. Their mission is to deliver data on infectious diseases and vaccines, and to unite doctors, scientists, healthcare professionals, attorneys, and families who support voluntary vaccinations. Their vision is that doctors and the public are able to evaluate the data on infectious diseases and vaccines objectively and voluntarily engage in informed decision-making about vaccination. 

You can check out their directors, advisors, and founding members here.

The organization itself is much bigger than the founding members, and includes a coalition of organizations, doctors and scientists.

On their website, they’ve put out some excellent downloadable PDF’s with regards to the MMR vaccine. There are four of them that all present different points.

  1. MEASLES: What Parents Need To Know
  2. MMR VACCINE: Is It Safer Than Measles? 
  3. Waning Immunity & The MMR Vaccine 
  4. FAQ’s: The MMR Vaccine versus the Measles

One of them deals with “what parents need to know about the measles vaccine” and another one presents the information that has them questioning if the MMR vaccine is safer than the measles. They point out that the chances of dying from measles and make many comparisons to the vaccine.

According to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine-injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

Contracting measles is not dangerous in the developed world, and natural measles  provide immunity and also has a number of health benefits, like the reduced risk for cancer. That is sourced within their PDF, as well as other potential treatments.

I can go on and on, but for the sake of a short read I am pointing you, the reader, towards the PDF’s.

The PDF’s are well-sourced and laid out in an easy to read and understand type of manner, and quite detailed. Their arguments are quite compelling, and it would be interesting to present this information to a physician on the opposite end of the spectrum in order to hear or read their rebuttal. So feel free to take a look at them if interested!

Why This Is Important: When it comes to both our individual and collective health, all of us simply want what’s best. Nobody can really deny that, especially for our children. The issue is, many people have been made to believe that vaccines are for the greater good of everybody. We are made to believe that children, for example, who are not vaccinated are actually a danger to the vaccinated children.

The Physicians for Informed Consent are well aware of this argument, and they present a lot of information on why that’s not true. At the end of the day, in order to produce “herd immunity” from vaccines, the vaccines must be 100 percent effective for everybody, all of the time. We already know that that’s not the case and that a large majority are susceptible to vaccine injury. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury act alone is enough to argue against mandatory vaccination and the idea that the unvaccinated are a risk to the vaccinated. In fact, vaccines have been known to spread diseases. This has happened with polio as well as the measles.

For example, during the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences. The media (Pharma-owned) generated high public anxiety. This fear-mongering led to the demonization of unvaccinated children, who were perceived as the spreaders of this disease. Rebecca J. McNall, a co-author of the published report, is a CDC official in the Division of Viral Diseases who had the data proving that the measles outbreak was in part caused by the vaccine. It is evidence of the vaccine’s failure to provide immunity. (source)

There are actually decades of examples when it comes to the measles.

The Takeaway

Vaccinations are quite a controversial topic, and vaccine hesitancy continues to increase among not only the global citizenry, but among doctors and physicians as well, which was also expressed at the recent World Health Organization vaccine summit. You can read more about that here.

In today’s day and age, it’s important to ask ourselves if measures taken under the guise of goodwill are really necessary and good for us. Take terrorism, for example, the idea that those who fund the problem, arm the problem, and in some cases create the problem then propose the solution of foreign infiltration, again, under the guise of goodwill.

So what were the real intentions, to stop the terrorists or to take over the country for natural resources and economic power and control?

Are people capitalizing off of the coronavirus? Not just for profit but for control, like Edward Snowden mentioned?

It’s also important to note that pharmaceutical companies hold tremendous lobbying power, even more so than big oil. (source)

Ask yourself, should we not have the right to decide for ourselves what goes into our body? Especially when there is a tremendous amount of flawed logic with the idea of mass vaccinations? Should we not have access to appropriate double blind placebo controlled safety studies? How come there are none for vaccines?

Why are there massive ridicule campaigns against organizations, professionals and people who create awareness about vaccine safety? Is vaccine safety not in the best interests of everybody? Should we not be analyzing and questioning instead of simply believing?

We must ask ourselves if we want to continue to give our consciousness and perceptions about certain medications over to these global and federal health authorities or, is it time to start asking more questions and pointing out facts that don’t really resonate? Why is discussion being discouraged, censored and even punished?

Why is Julian Assange in Jail? Why do we jail those who expose crimes and identify with those who commit them?

At the end of the day, vaccines are not a one size fits all product, and that’s quite clear. There are risks associated with vaccines, and evidence suggests that they are nowhere near as rare as they’re made out to be.

If we can come together as billions and shut down for the coronavirus, imagine what we could do if we come together to oppose measures that we as a citizenry, and as an entire collective, do not desire.

Soft Drink Companies Caught Using Big Tobacco’s Playbook To Lure Young Children

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Documents obtained by researchers clearly outline the unethical and immoral actions Tobacco companies used to 'hook' kids onto sugary drinks. They use the same tactics they did for smoking.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do and have our federal health regulatory agencies allow such products to be approved as safe for consumption when they are clearly linked to a variety of diseases, like cancer?

Many moves made by multiple big corporations are extremely unethical, immoral, and downright shocking. These corporations have completely compromised our federal health regulatory agencies, and it’s quite clear that they do not care about the health of the human race and will do anything when it comes to the success of the products they manufacture, including taking illegal and/or immoral actions.

One of the more recent examples comes from the tobacco industry. Companies within the industry used colors, flavors, and marketing techniques to lure and entice children as potential future smokers. They actually used and applied these same strategies to sweetened beverages starting as early as 1963, according to a study conducted by researchers at UC San Francisco.

As the Sugar Scientists point out:

The study, which draws from a cache of previously secret documents from the tobacco industry that is part of the UCSF Industry Documents Library tracked the acquisition and subsequent marketing campaigns of sweetened drink brands by two leading tobacco companies: R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris. It found that as tobacco was facing increased scrutiny from health authorities, its executives transferred the same products and tactics to peddle soft drinks. The study was published in the March 2019 issue of BMJ.

“Executives in the two largest U.S.-based tobacco companies had developed colors and flavors as additives for cigarettes and used them to build major children’s beverage product lines, including Hawaiian Punch, Kool-Aid, Tang and Capri Sun,” said senior author Laura Schmidt, PhD, MSW, MPH, of the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. “Even after the tobacco companies sold these brands to food and beverage corporations, many of the product lines and marketing techniques designed to attract kids are still in use today.” (source)

The new papers, which are available in the UCSF Truth Tobacco Industry Documents Library, a subset of the UCSF Industry Documents Library, reveal the close and tight knit relationships between the big tobacco and big food industries. In fact, in the 60s and 70s, these companies conducted taste tests with mothers and their children to evaluate sweetness, colors and flavors for Hawaiian Punch product line extensions. The children’s preferences were prioritized.

Kool-Aid Joins Marlboro

Meanwhile, tobacco competitor Philip Morris had acquired Kool-Aid, via General Foods, in 1985. The company flipped its marketing audience from families to children, created its “Kool-Aid Man” mascot, and launched collaborations with branded toys, including Barbie and Hot Wheels. It also developed a children’s Kool-Aid loyalty program described as “our version of the Marlboro Country Store,” a cigarette incentives program. (source)

“The Wacky Wild Kool-Aid style campaign had tremendous reach and impact,” said first author Kim Nguyen, ScD, MPH, who is also with the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. “Lots of kids in the ’80s dreamed of getting swag from the Wacky Warehouse. What is really ‘wacky’ is that the Kool-Aid kid program was modeled after a tobacco marketing strategy designed to build allegiance with smokers.”

The tobacco giant also acquired Capri Sun and Tang, and used similar child-focused integrated marketing strategies to drive those sales.

“The industry claims that these tobacco-inspired marketing strategies are not actually targeting children and should be excluded from these industry-led agreements,” said Schmidt. “But the evidence cited in our research shows that these product lines and marketing techniques were specifically designed for and tested on children.” (source)

The UCSF Industry Documents Library was launched in 2002 as a digital portal for tobacco documents. Today, the library includes close to 15 million internal tobacco, drug, chemical and food industry documents used by scientists, policymakers, journalists and community members in their efforts to improve and protect the health of the public.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, it’s important to recognize that government health authorities and the corporations we buy our food from, among other things, really don’t care about us. This has become extremely evident, as they are responsible for the sharp rise in numerous diseases. It’s not uncommon to see parents buy their children products similar to the ones listed above, and that’s due to mass brainwashing and the fact that we’ve been made to feel that these products are actually safe. This is why awareness is so critical.

Why A Growing Number of People Are Abstaining From Porn & Masturbation

Published

on

They are known as “fapstronauts,” and they are part of a growing community of hundreds of thousands of men and women who are abstaining from masturbation to internet pornography.

Their community is called “NoFap,” and its founder, Alexander Rhodes, is a man on a mission to educate and inspire the world about the damaging effects of masturbating to porn.

What could possibly be wrong with harmless masturbation, you might wonder? Aren’t we meant to enjoy the simple pleasure centres of our bodies?

According to Rhodes, masturbating to porn isn’t harmless at all. In fact, it is a silent epidemic of disastrous proportion.

“The emergence of internet pornography has changed the landscape of sexual development and relationships in a way never-before-seen in human history,” he said during his speech at the Out of the Shadows national press conference. “As a result, countless people are having their sexual tastes shaped by porn producers rather than real, human, experiences. These days, exposure to pornography seems to be a virtual certainty and young men [and women] are therefore automatically ‘opted-in’ to potential addiction, relational difficulty, porn-induced erectile dysfunction, and more,” he continued.

During his speech, Rhodes discusses the idea that porn is a relatively new variable in human evolution, and we are only beginning to see the repercussions of its use arise in the current generation of men and women.

He says exposure to porn is so rampant that it is practically mandatory for children to come into contact with some image or video before puberty. He quotes an Australian study which asked 258 male participants about their exposure to porn. Only one reported they’d never been exposed. Even more concerning, the median age of first exposure was 13 for males and 16 for females.

In this way, Rhodes says, kids are learning about sexuality through porn before their first kiss.

Frequent masturbation to porn is causing erectile dysfunction in a generation of men.

Today, a large community of “fapstronauts” is coming forward to talk about the impact this exposure has had on their lives. They report heavy reliance on porn and masturbation is manifesting in disturbing ways­ — erectile dysfunction (ED) and anorgasmia, the inability to orgasm during partnered sex, being a few of them.

According to a Kinsey report, in 1948 less than 1% of men under 30 had ED. In 2012, Swiss researchers found this number at 30%.

And the effects of watching porn span far beyond the physical, says Rhodes.

“Different studies on porn users are showing associations with sexual dysfunction, brain hypofrontality, desensitization, sensitization to porn cues, increased stress, less motivation, relationship problems, decreased sexual satisfaction, and other life-altering detriments.”
(For an extensive list of research articles on the effects of porn, click here.)

Numerous scientific studies have found that excessive porn use has biological and behavioural ramifications.

Rhodes also stresses that he and the NoFap community are in no way ‘sex negative’:

Being skeptical of pornography is not the same thing as being sex negative – there’s a huge difference between pornography and sex. In porn, the viewer is a voyeur, rather than a participant. It is on a screen. It is available in virtually endless amounts and pirated all over porn tube sites without monetary cost. It is always accessible, just a tap or click away. To our brain’s reward system, this can be an especially enticing quick and repeatable path to an orgasm, compared to partnered sex. In fact, many people who are quitting porn are doing so in the pursuit of better sex. Quitting porn is sex positive.

He notes many NoFap community members are there to improve their interpersonal relationships, whether it be for a marriage, a relationship, or single life. For others, it is simply a challenge of willpower — to seize control of your sexuality and turn it into superpowers.

“There are many, many different reasons to join but we’re all on NoFap with one goal – to help each other abstain from PMO (porn/masturbation/orgasm).”

Men And Women Report Incredible Life Shifts After Quitting Porn and Masturbation

Within the many pages of the NoFap forums, whether directly on the NoFap website or within the large and fast-growing Reddit community, it is easy to see the profound shifts taking place for people who’ve succeeded in the NoFap challenge, which consists of setting an intention to abstain from masturbation and watching porn for a certain amount of time and then riding it out.

The NoFap community is growing at a rapid pace.

Participants report diverse and overwhelmingly positive results from their efforts, like increased confidence, reduced anxiety, improved focus and memory, increased concentration, improved social skills, deeper sleeps, enhanced abilities to feel emotions, less brain fog, and even seemingly being more attractive to females.

While some might say these are rather normal powers, fapstronauts say that after years of feeling depressed, scattered. and unmotivated, the onset of these new changes feel as incredible as real ‘ superpowers‘ would.

One user, “borninthenorthwest,” said committing to NoFap altered his attitudes toward sex and women entirely:

My relationship with porn began at the age of 13 with nude Playboy photos of Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy. This was in the days of dial-up Internet, and I was initiated by my childhood best friend at the time. Although this did not seem pornographic, relative to what my peers were beginning to look at, I now see that this was the beginning. It began a cycle where every woman I met was judged by these photogenic standards, and felt no real attraction towards most girls in high school, despite being popular and well-liked for my prowess on the guitar.

He explained his warped attitude toward women posed issues in his sex life.

“None of the girls I met in college could compare to the standards in my own mind. What few girls I was attracted to, I felt incapable of asking out for a date, and often would simply fantasize about them instead.”

He admits he developed an addiction to porn, and at 31 he discovered the NoFap community.

“Since then my relationship with both pornography and far more innocent triggers is vastly different. I no longer use porn at all, and no longer place the celebrity notion of beauty on the pedestal either, and am interested in real life and real people, slowly but surely engaging in reality.”

“Fapstronauts” claim that abstaining from porn and masturbation improves their overall confidence and sex lives.

Here is what a few other fapstronauts had to say.

Thesexymountainman:

“Went to a dance last night and asked a bunch of girls to dance. Felt like a boss. A few months ago I would have been sweating and shaking doing that. I would’ve been looking at the floor with my head down like a whipped puppy trying to ask a girl to dance. Stay strong everybody! There’s life after PMO, and it’s awesome af!”

Amadadado:

“Today I am walking around with random erections all day long, like a teenager. I am in my 40s, so this feels strange.”

IronWide:

“Life is amazing and it’s only been two weeks! I have found out how much more confident I am in public, and how much more secure I feel about myself.”

TheGaurdian97:

“I finished a 300 page book in one sitting today. Before I would fall asleep or procrastinate and play on my phone. Now I can read and actually remember what I read.” 

The Most Important Takeaway

Today, Rhode’s mission is to get the message out to parents so that healthy conversations can start happening at an early age.

Educating children about sexuality and the effects of watching porn is a crucial component in preventing porn addiction and porn related side effects.

“Families need to educate their children about pornography – and they need to do so before the porn producers do, since right now minors are getting hooked on porn long before they are made aware of the potential negative effects.”

And for the ones currently suffering from porn related side effects, he offers that the treatment to these symptoms simply comes down to one thing— removing porn from their lives:

We simply want people to ask themselves the question, how is porn impacting my life and relationships? And if they do not know how porn is impacting them, they can simply take a quick break, changing one variable in a self experiment, to see what impact it might have on their lives and their relationships. Already, thousands have made the personal decision to leave porn in the past, and have gone on to live more fulfilling lives with improved interpersonal relationships. It’s time we think about and openly discuss our heavy usage of pornography. In the meantime more and more people around the world will continue to declare their autonomy and reclaim their sexualities from the porn production companies.

If you are struggling with porn addiction, or are simply curious about what others are reporting from abstaining from masturbation, join the NoFap communities through their website or on Reddit. NoFap offers many resources as well as a global support network to help you transition away from the addictive influence of porn.
