Would You Use An Atom Bomb Explosion as a Pesticide?
That’s what the psychiatric profession does! It would clear the pests OK but at what cost? It would destroy the entire landscape, just to “fix” a problem!
Welcome to 21st century psychiatry!
It is bankrupt of ideas and techniques. It cannot define any single psychiatric condition in terms of objective measurable changes (no lab tests of any kind).
Yet psychiatrists see fit to prescribe some of the deadliest, most toxic, most destructive chemical substances around, which ever got the label of “medication”. It’s atom bomb stuff. Yet it doesn’t even clear the pests!
In Toxic Psychiatry and again in more detail in Talking Back To Prozac, Harvard-trained super-psychiatrist Peter Breggin MD states that “antidepressants are so ineffective that even company-rigged studies have difficulty showing any positive effects.”
That’s putting it pretty strongly! But Breggin has been publishing the facts on the abuses of his colleagues and the pharmaceutical industry for decades. He’s earned the nickname “the conscience of psychiatry”.
Peter Breggin MD
In 2006 Joanna Moncrieff and Irving Kirsch published a review and analysis of antidepressant efficacy in the British Medical Journal, focusing on SSRIs such as Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil. They concluded that these drugs “do not have a clinically meaningful advantage over placebo”.1 Yet these drugs are peddled as the ONLY treatment that are approved for psychiatric patients. It’s all about profit, of course.
But where does this leave the patient? If orthodox psychiatry has NOTHING to offer—it’s treatments ineffective and fraudulent—what is the poor patient supposed to do?
It’s Bad News Being A Psychiatric Patient
Not only will you be mis-managed, maybe imprisoned, with a torrent of chemical profiteering “treatments” which ruin your life. The psychiatric label can mean dying 25 years or more earlier.
A sixteen-state study has revealed increased morbidity and mortality of those diagnosed with serious mental disorders. That is, people with certain psychiatric diagnoses die 25 years or more earlier than others! The study, conducted by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) and published in October, 2012, attributes the increased mortality of mental health clients to preventable conditions, ranging from smoking, prescription medications and substance abuse, to diabetes, obesity, homelessness and suicide.
The study authors note that atypical antipsychotics, in particular, are increasingly associated with preventable conditions that contribute to increased mortality (i.e., weight gain, diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome).
Furthermore, among a host of health service quality issues, access to health care is typically hindered by systemic flaws, under-funding, and discrimination against mental health consumers.2
Notice these coy figures take no account of the likelihood of dying BECAUSE of your medications.
But it’s not just the patient who is likely to die! The public at large is being put at risk by Big Pharma greed. In effect, SSRIs are lethal, not only to the patient but the public at large getting murdered too. Yet these deaths are never counted as a side-effect of the drugs.
Here’s a shocking list of mass shootings, with the drugs in question noted:
- Myron May, November 2014, Tallahassee (Hydroxyzine, Wellbutrin, Seroquel)
- Aaron Ybarra, June 2014, Seattle, (Prozac)
- Jose Teyes, October 2013, Sparks, Nevada (Prozac)
- Matti Saari, September 2008, Kauhajoki, Finland (SSRI and a benzodiazepine)
- Jeff Weise, 2005, Minnesota’s Red Lake Indian Reservation, shot and killed 9 and wounded 5 others before killing himself. (Prozac).
- Richard Lopez, January 2001, Oxnard, California (Prozac and Paxil)
- Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, April 1999, Columbine, Colorado. Harris was on Luvox (Klebold’s records remain sealed)
- Kip Kinkel, murdered his parents in 1998 and the next day went to his school, Thurston High in Springfield, Oregon, and opened fire on his classmates, killing two and wounding 22 others. (Prozac and Ritalin)
- Toby Sincino, October 1995, Blackville, South Carolina (Zoloft)
- Adam Lanza, 2014, Sandy Hook Elementary School, (Calexa, Lexapro)
- Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 27 before escaping, then shooting himself. According to police records, Kelley was taking medication for depression, anxiety and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at the time.
- Nikolas Cruz, Parkland, FL, who shot and killed 17 (most likely Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta or Dexedrine reported)
The list of mass murders “goes on and on”, as they say. Yet the media (bought and paid for by Big Pharma) remains curiously silent about the psychiatric drug connection.
The cover-up attempt tries to argue that it’s not the drugs that trigger the violence; it’s the mental illness that is being treated. They say that there are many more that need treatment “to prevent these tragedies”.
“Calling for more spending on mental health and on psychiatry will make matters worse, probably causing many more shootings than it prevents, says Peter Breggin. [excerpt from Dr. Breggin’s recent column at Mad In America: “Psychiatrist Says: More Psychiatry Means More Shootings”.
Still not convinced? A review of scientific literature published in Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry regarding the “astonishing rate” of mental illness over the past 50 years revealed that it’s not “mental illness” causing increased acts of violence, but, rather, the psychiatric drugs prescribed to treat it. Mental disorder is not a predictor of aggressive behavior, but rather the adverse effects of the drugs prescribed to treat it.3
In Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry Peter Breggin MD introduces the concept of medication spellbinding—the capacity of psychoactive drugs to blunt the individual’s appreciation of drug-induced mental dysfunction and, at times, to encourage a misperception that they are doing better than ever when they are, in fact, doing worse than ever. In the extreme, medication spellbinding drives individuals into bizarre, out-of-character destructive actions, including suicide and violence. Medication spellbinding is an aspect of the brain-disabling principle that explains why so many individuals take drugs of all kinds, from antidepressants to alcohol, when they are causing them great harm and even destroying their lives.
My new book (very imminent) Real Secrets To Transforming Mental Health lists 18 side-effects of SSRIs; 21 devastating side effects of Ritalin; fatal complications for Valproate (for bipolar); 3 adverse effects for lithium carbonate; and 3 for Risperdal (given for bipolar and “irritability stemming from autism). But notice: ALL THESE DEADLY COMPLICATIONS ARE LISTED OFFICIALLY. It’s not my opinion; it’s information from the product insert labels!
Who but a fool (or a crook) would administer such deadly poisons to supposedly balance up a delicate function such as the human mind? It’s like using an atom bomb explosion as a “pesticide”!
There Has To Be An Answer
There is! Almost all “mental patients” are not mentally ill at all. There are hidden physical conditions that are making them feel unwell and causing mal-function in mind. My readers could probably list a whole bunch of real causes along with me: food allergies, hormonal imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, dysbiosis, leaky gut, heavy metal toxicity, inflammation, stealth pathogens and parasites, just to name a few…
Thing is, all these causes are well-documented sources of mental symptoms. What’s more: THERE ARE AMPLE LABORATORY TESTS TO BACK UP THE DIAGNOSIS. No guesswork or opinions are needed. Just a willingness to LOOK, which is something psychiatrists hate to do. It takes time, it’s difficult, they are ignorant, it reduces profits and efficiency.
They don’t want the patients to get well! That would be a tragedy and cost them a lot of money.
Unfortunately, the certified lunatics (yes, it’s the psychiatrists who are the real crazy ones) are back by governments and laws, by medical schools, by the media (who get heavily subsidized by the pharmaceutical mafia) and even by public mis-apprehension.
The only real “answer” to psychiatry and its horrors is knowledge: the facts. The truth.
My New Book
Fortunately, I have a new masterwork book coming out. You’ll receive the notices, starting next week. It’s a MASSIVE 460 pages of 8.5 inches x 11 inches. Its title is
Real Secrets To TRANSFORMING MENTAL HEALTH. This is the first printing and it’s a Privileged Edition. There is more to be done but I want those who needs it to be able to get their hands on it as soon as possible.
It’s been 2 years in the making and its time is NOW!
I’m sure you will enjoy it. And with something like 1 in 6 people being on some kind of psychiatric medication, a LOT of people need rescuing urgently. So lots of people NEED it!
