Top 3 Questions to Determine the Best in Counseling, Psychotherapy, Psychiatry, and Coaching
Burris Institute Blog
by Kelly Burris PhD
8M ago
Question 1 When seeking help from a counselor, psychotherapist, psychiatrist, or coach, the number one question is, "What do you measure, why do you measure it, how are the outcomes generated, and can I see data from previous clients?" If the mental health professional states that revealing data from previous clients would violate client confidentiality, let them know that you did not request personal information. You would simply like to look at the before and after data from clients with similar issues. Question 2 The second question is, "How do you define normal?" With 947 pages in DSM 5 ..read more

In 2016 after effectively addressing gall stones, liver stones, kidney stones, and severe parasitic infection, I was still sick and continued to seek out medical help. This was a big mistake. I was misdiagnosed with a left kidney issue and referred to a urologist for a cystoscopy (a tube up the urethra). After this procedure, I contracted a severe bladder infection. I went to the ER 6 times was hospitalized 5 times and went through 5 rounds of antibiotics. The 5th round of antibiotics was a pick line. This is a line that is run through a vein on the inside of your upper arm and twists around ..read more

Depression Anxiety & Stress: Why Reprogramming is Measurably Better
Burris Institute Blog
by Kelly Burris PhD
3y ago
Reprogramming When people hear the word reprogram it brings about thoughts of someone else taking control of their mind, but in the case of Functional Emotional Fitness™ (FEF™), the exact opposite is true. Observational subjective assessments without measuring emotional and gut health of a client are more in line with someone else running your thought processes. The only way one can reprogram an emotional state that does not work is if one understands the mechanism of thought. Thought precedes emotion and behavior, so if one understands this process, you are at the very beginning of emotio ..read more

Health Age and Death Begin in the Gut: The Top 5 Gut Health/Repair Supplements
Burris Institute Blog
by Kelly Burris PhD

Following are excerpts from the Functional Emotional Fitness™ Book Some attribute the quote “Death Begins in the Gut” to Hypocrites others attribute it to a GI doc from the early 1900s. Whatever the case we are now finding this statement to be true only I feel it is more significant than this, so I added health and age to the equation. I did this after suffering for over a decade and being forced to commit seven years of research to fix a long list of degenerative diseases with neurological disorders the most difficult to address. When I speak of all the other moving parts, though the cour ..read more

Holding Mental Health Professionals Accountable

If you were to visit a doctor for a serious injury, and the extent of the treatment was analyzing why you had the accident, and reliving the play by play of your mistake, would you continue to pay substantial fees for their services for the next couple of years? Probably not, yet this is the accepted norm for mental health treatments. Worldwide, mental illness represents more than 15 percent of the disease burden “in established market economies such as the US.” according to NIMH this “is more than the disease burden caused by all cancers.” Approximately 26 percent of adults suffer from a d ..read more

Functional Emotional Fitness™: The Application of Science in Mental Health
Burris Institute Blog
by Kelly Burris PhD

Since Sigmund Freud discovered talk therapy and psychoanalysis in the late 1800’s, there has been little advancement in a modality for behavior change that works. One of the reasons for this is a means to measure whether one is making progress with a client. Neuroscientists and psychiatrists claim the processes of the human mind and the physiology of the brain is too complex to measure accurately. This could not be further from the truth if we start by looking at a couple of fundamental issues and simply ask… “What questions need to be answered to resolve the issue of taking control of what ..read more

Benchmarking Normal as the First Step in Mental Health and Coaching
Burris Institute Blog
by Kelly Burris PhD
3y ago
Emotion drives behavior yet emotion is bypassed in favor of looking at the resulting behavior in the mental health industry. Normal cannot be defined by skipping the driver of what constitutes normal. The only explainable motivation for this is no one wants to fix a disorder because it is more profitable to drag it out or drug it. Better is not when a therapist or psychiatrist says you are better it is when you can see and feel you are better. This can only happen if you measure, track and improve emotion at every session. With over 900 pages in DSM-5, there is not 1 page that clearly defin ..read more

Functional Emotional Fitness: The Mechanism and Measurement of Emotion Behavior Relationships and Gut Health
Burris Institute Blog

Burris Connect: The Ultimate Mental Health EHR If the objective in mental health is to get back to normal and not to manage, modify or cope with an aberrant thought, emotion and behavior one must fully understand if there is progression, regression or no change. Therefore, the default in Functional Emotional Fitness™ (mental health) is the measurement of emotional and gut health NOT medication. We feel the practitioner and client must measure and track all emotional parameters driving the behavior they are addressing. This is exactly what is required of coaches at Burris Connect.
