Vernon Barksdale, MD MPH CPI, was invited to participate in the Featured Speakers Series of the Today in Miracles show that is available to view online at afriquecanada.tv. The show is hosted by Mwila The Queen, and represents inspirational themes of life-changing messages.
As a practicing psychiatrist and clinical researcher, Dr. Barksdale speaks with Mwila about his theories of how spiritually oriented techniques can be used in response to stress, anxiety, psychiatric issues and other health disorders. Using techniques that he developed with his wife, Louise Taber Barksdale, MD FACP, Dr. Barksdale shares how health promoting activities such as meditation can counter the effects of stress and other disorders than can cause damage to brain tissues.
Medical science proves that depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other major psychiatric illness, as well as diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes have causation components that are stress-related, and can lead to destruction of brain tissue. But with mindfulness meditation techniques and practice, improvement can be seen in the brain tissue that has been affected by these significant stressors. Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to improve sense of well being and manage chronic disease.
The Successful Living Series is a collection of specially designed meditation trainings for improving deep relaxation meditation ability to promote better physical, mental and spiritual health. In particular, the Successful Living Series promotes theta level meditation techniques utilizing alternating tones.
