Lee Byrd  "DON’T DRINK THE KOOL AID! -- The dangerous truths behind cults
There are more than 5,000 cults in the United States alone!  Each cult has its own guidelines and practices that it requires its members to follow. These practices can range from the extreme measures taken by Charles Manson and his followers to the faith-based methods of scientologists. While some attribute these alternative therapies to spiritual awakenings and positive lifestyle changes, too often they result in negative effects to the body and mind.  “Most people believe they are not at risk of falling victim cultic mind manipulation,” says Lee Byrd, a world-renowned expert on alternative psychological therapies. “After years of research into this dangerous world, however, I have learned that we are all vulnerable in one way or another.”  The granddaughter of pioneering polar explorer Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Lee Byrd’s interest in new age therapies began during her teen years outside of Philadelphia, PA. For more than 35 years, Byrd has been an active member of the world of competitive horse riding as a rider, trainer, and instructor. Byrd has two grown sons and currently resides in South Burlington, VT with her partner, Dr. Paul Krusinski.
