A Cure for Depression

Kalpana (Rose) Kumar, M.D.


Do you ever wonder why so many people are depressed? 1 in 10 Americans over the age of 12 are taking antidepressants. What has happened to us? In my medical practice, I see people every day who complain about feeling depressed. When I ask them if they can describe what their depression feels like, most of them describe feelings of loneliness, grief and trauma. A majority of my patients feel disconnected from the world. Even those who are surrounded by friends and family feel lonely. They tell me they feel un-witnessed. They are afraid to live from their true selves as it may be different from the 'norm.' They adapt to the norm so they are not rejected or left out. They are afraid of being left alone in the world if they are authentic. They adapt in order to fit in. They compromise their true selves. This is the root of their loneliness.

Psychological Astrology/Diagnostic Tool

Boris Matthews, Ph.D.


As a psychotherapist and depth psychologist I have been fascinated by astrology for a long time. Yes, for many people, astrology is a column in the paper where you can read something about your sun sign and have a laugh. For others, astrology is the gold standard of superstition. But both reactions miss something important: the astrological birth chart holds a wealth of information beyond the sun sign. The birth chart-the natal horoscope-can be understood as a map or diagram of the basic pattern of an individual's personality. This is a map or diagram that can be very useful to an individual in understanding himself or herself and to an appropriately trained therapist in working with a client.

The Ancient "Science of Cards"

Lisa Schuetz, M.A., C.G.

As a Jungian graphologist and expert in personality typology I am amazed at the information that I am about to share as it offers amazingly accurate insight about yourself and your life.

Science of cards  

Did you know that your birthday is governed by one of the 53 playing cards (52 plus the Joker)? This ancient, esoteric system combines astrology and Pythagorean numerology, giving a wealth of information about fundamental patterns to your personality, emotions and more.


A close examination of our common playing cards reveal that they are actually an ancient calendar system that matches the numeric values of the calendar that we use today in every single way. As examples: there are 52 cards in a deck and 52 weeks in a year, there are 4 suits & 4 seasons, 13 cards in each suit & 13 weeks/season plus 13 new moons each year, and if you add all the spots on the cards it adds up to the exact number of days in our year.

People have been hearing more and more about acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as it gains popularity.  Maybe you know someone who is receiving acupuncture or heard about it in the media and your interest is peeked.  Katie Couric has done a wonderful, informative interview on her show, asking all the right questions and even receiving a needle to show the painlessness of the procedure.  If you are curious, please take a look at this link.

Introduction to EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing

Stephanie Delmore, MA, LPC

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) was first developed in the late 1980's by Francine Shapiro, PhD.  The modality has been researched and refined and is now thought to be effective for a range of symptoms and can often help people who are unable to make changes through traditional "talk" therapy. Treatment with EMDR can take negative thoughts and experiences which are stuck in an unprocessed, reactive state and move them to the part of our brain that is higher thinking.  One becomes able to change their thinking and feeling about themselves and move forward with their life in a positive direction.

Take a look at this YouTube video clip. It shows EMDR being used in a clinical setting and includes comments from Dr. Sharpiro. The longer I work with patients and EMDR the more convinced I am of its efficacy and benefit.

Ask Ommani

Question:  Are there homeopathic remedies for feeling stuck in life? 

Answered by:  David Johnson, Certified Classical Homeopath


Yes, about 200, give or take!  A homeopathic remedy helps a person's system to recognize the manner in which it has become 'stuck', which in turn provokes a healing response toward greater freedom.  In other words, if a person:

1) knows they have inner gifts looking for greater expression

2) feels unsure about the next step in their life

3) tends to be self-critical

There are very specific remedies to be matched to each individual's unique dilemma.  When you're ready for moving beyond old, limiting stress patterns, nature holds the answers in the form of homeopathic remedies matched with those patterns.  If you're interested in learning more about whether homeopathy is right for you and your situation, call The Ommani Center, 262.695.5311, and I'll be happy to answer additional questions.
