I have had these prostatitis symptoms now for 3 months. Did all of the tests and have all been neg other than hsv1 which could be a possible factor that caused the inflammation. I was also told to take a general antibiotic. Cipro and azithromycin to be exact and I don’t want to take the antibiotics as I fear it won’t help and just make it worse. Has there been any case where symptoms disappeared for good from these antibiotics? Doing a ton of research I am convinced that the massage therapy and biofeedback is the best natural cure to control the symptoms in the one run. Another interesting point for alternative medicine choices in where I find similar findings with this article is the part about fibromyalgia and how oxalate loads can have an impact on the core of the symptoms.
The concept of psychological immunity to depression is an exciting concept. However, the learned optimism programme as it stands may be more focused on stopping pessimism than enhancing optimism which is its own and different skill. Furthermore, in the specific area of learning optimism amongst children, there have been eleven replications, of which eight replicated the results, whilst three found no effects. Whilst the results are impressive in the studies that work (depression significantly reduced in children taught the optimism programme) and with no boosters the optimistic child programme prevents depression for two years.
Distinct from a disposition to believe that things will work out, there is a philosophical idea that, perhaps in ways that may not be fully comprehended, the present moment is in an optimum state. This view that all of nature - past, present and future - operates by laws of optimization along the lines of Hamilton's principle in the realm of physics is countered by views such as idealism , realism , and philosophical pessimism . Philosophers often link the concept of optimism with the name of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz , who held that we live in the best of all possible worlds , or that God created a physical universe that applies the laws of physics. This idea was famously mocked by Voltaire in his satirical novel Candide as baseless optimism of the sort exemplified by the beliefs of Pangloss , which are the opposite of his fellow traveller Martin 's pessimism and emphasis on free will . The optimistic position is also called Panglossianism , after the character. The phrase "panglossian pessimism" has been used [ by whom? ] [ year needed ] to describe the pessimistic position that, since this is the best of all possible worlds, it is impossible for anything to get any better. Conversely, philosophical pessimism might be [ by whom? ] [ year needed ] associated with an optimistic long-term view because it implies that no change for the worse is possible.
