Show Notes

Carl's guest today has quite a story to share...it's not only helped speakers deal with anxiety, it's saved lives! 

As a suicide ideation survivor, over time and with the use of multiple resources, ‘The Butterfly Method' was created to take a person from feeling overwhelmed and despairing to hope in the time of a bathroom break. The Butterfly Method utilizes Stop Therapy, Deep Breathing, Mantra, Progressive Relaxation, Visualization, Imagery, Auditory, Tactile, and Action modalities. It has been found useful in multiple stressful situations.

Dr. Kaine is an experienced, board-certified physician with intimate awareness of all areas of suicide, She knows the pain of being the family member left behind, having experienced the loss of her sister, two paternal aunts and two maternal cousins to death by suicide. She's also a person who has lived with suicide ideation, having committed herself to the mental hospital four times from the late 1970s - early 1990’s to be protected from herself when death by suicide seemed the best option.
