Hi, My name is Gilbert Bates. Although I suffered through a traumatic childhood I was still able to find a partner, have children and run a business. At age 46 I suffered a depressive breakdown. It put me on a journey through hospitals, seeing a psychiatrist, and into exploring complementary/natural therapies. None of these modalities cured my problem, mainly because they dealt with the cognitive part of my brain only. I eventually found my way to Los Angeles where a underwent Primal Therapy under Arthur Janov.
Primal Therapy is a feeling based therapy that took me into my lower brain areas of the limbic system and brainstem.
The mental health industry does not understand the importance and power of the brainstem in such common disorders like depression and anxiety. I suffered both depression and anxiety and through Primal Therapy I released the pain imprinted in my lower brain, which lead me to cure.
Along the way I found that as I released the imprinted pain I was able to feel more love - and with this came the realization that love is also a function of the lower brain.
Experiencing the power of my brainstem has completely altered my view of how the human mind works.
I wrote this book from those experiences.
