Meditation In A Bottle

It was reported that 35 Meditation In A Bottle Review percent, or 56, of their 160 clients were adopted. A large portion of these children were borderline, but the population included other personality disorders, conduct disorders, identity, impulse and substance abuse disorders. Now nearly all the adoptions took place in the first two weeks of life. In a cross-sectional survey of 15,416 children throughout the United States, Zill (1985) determined that two percent of the overall population were adopted. This means that of the 160 children at Élan One, only three should have been adopted instead of 56. This is like flipping a coin 59 times and having it come up heads 56. Using the binomial theorem, this would happen approximately once in one trillion trials. Since the adopteds at Elan One were mostly adopted in the first two weeks of life, this demonstrates a correlation between severely disturbed non-psychotic children and trauma occurring in the first month of life. While other factors may differ in the lives of adopteds, separation from the biological mother had already been identified as the primary infant trauma that leads to serious emotional disorders. Recently, a man, who had been borderline all his life, suddenly at age 60 decided that he simply wanted to lie in bed or eat. When he was hungry, he ate and then took a nap, and then later he would get up and eat, and then go back to bed. More noteworthy is the fact that to him this was perfectly normal behavior, which indicated that it originated at a time when it wasnormal, i.e. it was the behavior of the newbornwho simply feeds and sleeps. Also of note is the fact that this man, throughout his life, had been extremely obsessive compulsive and stored away everything, just like an animal of an earlier species-such as a rodent. If he managed to go to McDonald's for a hamburger, the wrapper was folded into a precise little square and placed inside the box, and the box was saved and stacked with 100 or more identical boxes from the same restaurant. Every newspaper and every magazine was similarly saved, until there was no room left in the house. This person was traumatized in the first month of life. His compulsive behavior called to mind that of a woman who was traumatized at age seven days when she lay dying of septicemia, in a pediatrics ward, separated from her mother. Throughout her early childhood, she continued to force her mother to play a game with her in which the mother would leave but would sneak back in through the window. The thrust of the game was that the mother really did not go away (as she had been forced to when her baby was in the hospital).
