40 Day Medical Meditation Treatment - an offer for free holistic healing

Dear Skin Pick Forum and CSP Sufferers... I'm a picker and a yoga & meditation teacher, 39 years of age. I work full time, but I also teach about addiction recovery - and specifically about how to treat and change habits and patterns. This is my first time coming to this board, and this is the first message I have posted. I was very touched by some of your stories. Some of you have pretty severe cases of picking (CSP), and some lesser cases, but it seems like you have reached a point of beginning to search for answers, and have started looking for help... Would you be willing to try a holistic therapy to help you out? I have access to and teach a medical meditation that comes from India which is specifically an aid for habituation, OCD, addiction and related behaviors. I did it recently for 40 days, and was surprised that I completely stopped picking (after 25 years) for about 20 days... I have to keep doing it again though because minor picking comes back, but I'm currently working on it, and it's almost gone now. I cannot make any guarantees, but in this instance, the treatment I am offering is simple, holistic, and harmless... All it takes is a little bit of commitment, diligence and patience. What do you have to lose?... I'd like to know if you believe you can commit to doing something like this for yourself for 40 days straight - as a starting point - and for only 7 to 11 minutes per day (15 minutes total time to settle down and tune in and tune out). Then you can continue to do it 2-3 times per week, or as needed afterwards, until the picking stops... I am willing to share this medical meditation totally free, and I would like to share this meditation with the board here, but I want to do it in a way that is proper and respectful. I also want to meet and get to know people who are committed to healing, and want to try this meditation - people who can follow through for 40 days, and also respond and give me feedback on their progress. I would like this to become part of the research I am doing for recovery from OCD - and if this is successful, to help to spread this meditation technique to help many other people living with habitual OCD and addictive behaviors. Also, at the same time, I would also recommend going on a measured dosage of natural Inositol, as recommended in this article:, concurrently with the meditation. I have a strong feeling that the two together will help attack this problem naturally from multiple angles, psychologically, holistically, and naturally. If you are interested, email me and stay in touch through this board. I will post up more information soon. Truly and Humbly Yours, Fateh

Just to correct the title of this post, -- this is not "an offer" for anything paid. I have recently successfully broken my picking and biting of cuticles, fingers, and toes after 25 years. I am looking to share this freely - but it has to be done correctly, and I am a certified meditation teacher, so I have certain standards to uphold. I also want a dedicated "test group" of pickers who can 1) keep up and 2) give me some live field feedback. Best to you, and talk more soon.

Fateh, I would like to try this if it is free. I am 24, and have picked at my scalp on and off since I was 15. I become quite depressed at that age and picking at my scalp made me feel great. I was scolded to stop, and eventually I did, but I have since restarted in the last two years. The picking causes bumps and cysts on my scalp, as well as constant dandruff and pain from wounds. I would like to dread my hair, but I need to stop picking first and let my scalp totally heal, and not start again. I have some time to work toward it but I'd like to start right away.

Dylan, My mom also picks her scalp! How interesting... I wish I could get her interested in this, as you are... :)) Well, the first thing is not to feel bad about it... You don't need to repress your feelings if you feel bad, guilty or depressed about anything... in fact - enjoy your time feeling down if you are down... Most people - they don't know HOW to be depressed!! If you are sad, then BE sad. Totally sad. There's nothing wrong with that! And see how that works... :)) So... moving on, I'm not sure if dreading your hair is the right route(?) - I dreaded my hair once and it really put my scalp into a dry and flaky, itchy situation... But I'm still getting materials together for this 40 day practice - let's get this meditation thing started as a try, and I suggest getting a wooden comb or wood-brush and combing your hair 3x back and forth, completely from the scalp, when you feel energetically low. Wooden combs (like the ones at Widu: tend to equalize your electromagnetic field and work to calm you. We'll get you started soon on a program to help that picking. Bless you! :))

Hey, I'd like to try this too! Though I'm not sure to understand completely... you mean this meditation program will be done online, right? Cause if you mean in real life, I'm afraid I couldn't as I currently live in Japan. Let me know, ok? Looking forward to start!!

Hi, yes, I'm putting together a 3-pager describing the meditation, and a couple other motivational things to try - working both inside and outside, including watching your diet and taking some supplements. I'm excited to have some people try an all-natural way of self-motivating, holistically to help heal this part of us... I want to do it as much as you :)). So, stay tuned. In the meantime, please contact me: so I can send you the PDF when ready. :)) Best to you! Love, Fateh.

Reston, I've fallen behind on getting this information together... but I will have it shortly! I feel bad about delaying this, but life has gotten busy... I want to re-iterate that I am not going anywhere - it has been fore-front in my mind, and know that we will overcome this hurdle together, and you have my support. It is my goal and mission to help you, others and myself, and we will make it happen soon. Certainly in the next two weeks, or sooner, I will release a full packet for helping us all with this... It will be worth the wait. Love, Fateh

This free medical treatment is a very important and effective decision taken by the state orders for the welfare of their own people.I am really glad for some more purchase in a sequential rate of this whole medical treatment procedure.This could claim this in a more expert ways and also liked by many of us.

I am also in desperate need for some guidance with this. I guess it's been going on for over 60 years. Until I found this site I thought I was alone. I've tried a few therapists but they don't know how to help. Thanks for sharing.
