  5. Differing types of therapeutic self-defense philosophy and techniques
    As a nurse who's recently gone back to psych (my true love), I was totally taken aback by the type of training my state psych facility provides. I'm a patient-first advocate, and always...

  6. Paleo/Primal Diet?
    Yes, there are 2 different camps. One that is of the "Safe starch" variety, and one that is of the low carb variety. Some Paleo folks eat plenty of carbs, but the most popular version of the diet...

  7. Psych Tech or Rehab Counselor as pathways to RN-Psych Job?
    Well, going tech would be helpful for you to understand what the nursing team goes thru and how the process works. However, I think that if you stayed the course, you'd be fine. You're clearly...

  9. Paleo/Primal Diet?
    My fault, I didn't realize it was strictly meta-analysis you required. I was referring to a Randomized Controlled Trails with subject over 1,000. Nevertheless, there are some in that list I...

  10. Paleo/Primal Diet?
    I've already explained why this doesn't matter, please pay attention. I never said they were. I agree with one thing, you are indeed arrogant. I alone am not declaring that the AMA,ADA,...

    i'll make this real simple for you. what you are asking has never been done for any diet...not even the current recommendations by the ada. the largest rct study for a diet was 827 and that...

  12. Paleo/Primal Diet?
    agreed. but nobody ever said there was just "one or two" studies. meta-analysis of the studies works, however, when the body of the research is founded on bunk principles (such as the lipid...

  15. Addictions vs. Psych nursing
    Thanks for responding. So is it the manipulation you don't like? Because in my unit, there are some very manipulative people. It's nice to run in to a nurse that loves psych as well.

  18. Paleo/Primal Diet?
    A bit of a short-sighted response, but I'll play. To say that "Those results are from weight loss" not 100% true and is missing the point. First, those improvements I listed were just the off the...
