SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/-- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an informative show, "The Dis-ease of Being Busy" on Sunday, April 9 at 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. The broadcast discussed the cause of busyness, the negative and positive impacts on the body and brain, and how a person can overcome this problem. The show was hosted by Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, who provided in-depth medical and clinical expertise and Program Producer and co-host Kristina Kuestner.
The broadcast featured panelist Ian M. McDonough, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the University of Alabama. Dr. McDonough's expertise includes the episodic memory, aging, structural and functional neuroimaging, dynamic fluctuations of brain activity, biomarkers of preclinical Alzheimer's disease and health disparities. Another panelist was Keerthy Sunder, M.D., a medical director for the Mind and Body Treatment and Research Institute in California and a consulting psychiatrist at Sovereign Health of Palm Desert. Mr. Sunder's research is based in schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and substance use disorders.
"Busyness is a type of quality, habit or mindset that adversely affects the person or group of people resulting in a negative health outcome," said Dr. McDonough. "Being busy has become very emotional in our society, which might serve as a sense of pride. People may admire someone else being busy but after some time, busyness forms urgency that tends to develop stress and essentially it becomes counterproductive."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
