“Each patient carries his own doctor inside him.” – Norman Cousins
According to BMJ Quality and Safety, 12 million adults in the United States are misdiagnosed with a variety of conditions each year. This figure amounts to 1 out of every 20 adult patients. The research showed that nearly 50% of those cases could lead to severe harm.
Doctors are too quick to label you as having social anxiety, depression, or attention deficit disorder, when in reality the cause of these symptoms may be related to porn addiction and masturbation.
When you fill out a survey at the doctor’s office they often ask you
- How many drinks do you have per day?
- How many cigarettes do you have per day?
- Have you smoked marijuana?
- What other drugs have you tried?
And if you check “no” for those questions, doctors can be quick to think that you have some sort of mental state condition such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD.
But missing on that list is an important question: How many times have you masturbated to porn this week and for how long have you been doing this?
Imagine if someone responded, “Oh, five times and I’ve been doing this for years or decades.” This is important and something doctors should dive more into.
What if instead of taking all these medications with dozens of side effects and spending months or years seeing therapists, you just stopped masturbating and watching porn? Being treated for porn addiction may be the appropriate way to solve the problem of social anxiety, depression, or attention deficit disorder. The reason why you may have those symptoms could be from an addiction to porn and masturbation.
Have you considered this?
You could be on medication for something you don’t need to be on when a much more natural solution is available: read this book, cut back on porn and masturbation, and get back into real life.
You’re not alone. You can do this and overcome whatever mental and emotional challenge you’re currently experiencing.
