Don’t Allow It!

Never allow your doctor to tell you that addictive drugs are okay.  They are NOT okay. They will cause other disorders and diseases as they kill you slowly. These include: opioids, benzodiazepines, antidepressants, hypnotics, stimulants, and antipsychotics. There is no reason on earth to be given these unless you have to be in the safety of a psychiatric institution. Right now, here in the US, one person is dying from an accidental opioid overdose every 12.5 minutes.  I don’t want you to be part of that statistic.

REHAB FRAUD: PSYCHIATRY’S DRUG SCAM

What hope is there?

Wouldn’t a universal, proven cure for drug addiction be a good thing? And is it possible?

First, let’s clearly define what is meant by “cure.” For the individual a cure means complete and permanent absence of any overwhelming physical or mental desire, need or compulsion to take drugs. For the society it means the rehabilitation of the addict as a consistently honest, ethical, productive and successful member. In the 1970s, this first question would have seemed rather strange, if not absurd.

“Of course that would be a good thing!” and “Are you kidding?” would have been
common responses.

Today, however, the responses are considerably different. A drug addict might answer, “Look, don’t talk to me about cures. I’ve tried every program there is and failed. None of them work.” Or, “You can’t cure heredity; my father was an alcoholic.” A layperson might say, “They’ve already cured it; methadone, isn’t it?” Or, “They’ve found it’s an incurable brain disease; you know, like diabetes, it can’t be cured.” Or even, “Science found it can’t be helped; it’s something to do with a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

Very noticeable would be the absence of the word, even the idea, of cure, whether amongst addicts, families of addicts, government officials, media or anywhere else.

In its place are words like disease, illness, chronic, management, maintenance, reduction and relapse. Addicts in rehab are taught to refer to themselves as “recovering,” never “cured.” Stated in different ways, the implicit consensus that has been created is that drug addiction is incurable and something an addict will have to learn to live with—or die with.

Is all hope lost?

Before considering that question, it is very important to understand one thing about drug rehabilitation today. Our hope of a cure for drug addiction was not lost; it was buried by an avalanche of false information and false solutions.

First of all, consider psychiatrists’ long-term propagation of dangerous drugs as “harmless”:

  • In the 1960s, psychiatrists made LSD not only acceptable, but an “adventure” to tens of ­thousands of college students, promoting the false concept of improving life through “recreational,” mind-altering drugs.
  • In 1967, US psychiatrists met to discuss the role of drugs in the year 2000. Influential New York psychiatrist Nathan Kline, who served on ­committees for the US National Institute of Mental Health and the World Health Organization stated, “In principle, I don’t see that drugs are any more abnormal than reading, music, art, yoga, or twenty other things—if you take a broad point of view.”
  • In 1973, University of California psychiatrist, Louis J. West, wrote, “Indeed a debate may soon be raging among some clinical scientists on the question of whether clinging to the drug-free state of mind is not an antiquated position for anyone—physician or patient—to hold.”
  • In the 1980s, Californian psychiatric drug ­specialist, Ronald K. Siegel, made the outrageous assertion that being drugged is a basic human “need,” a “fourth drive” of the same nature as sex, hunger and thirst.
  • In 1980, a study in the Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry claimed that, “taken no more than two or three times per week, cocaine creates no serious problems.”
  • According to the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s office in Connecticut, the false belief that cocaine was not addictive contributed to the dramatic rise in its use in the 1980s.
  • In 2003, Charles Grob, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of California Harbor Medical Center believed that Ecstasy ­(hallucinogenic street drug) was potentially “good medicine” for treating alcoholism and drug abuse.

Today, drug regulatory agencies all over the world approve clinical trials for the use of hallucinogenic drugs to handle anything from anxiety to alcoholism, despite the drugs being known to cause psychosis.

The failure of the war against drugs is largely due to the failure to stop one of the most dangerous drug pushers of all time: the psychiatrist. The sad irony is that he has also established himself in positions enabling him to control the drug rehab field, even though he can show no results for the billions awarded by governments and legislatures. Governments, groups, families, and individuals that continue to accept his false information and drug rehabilitation techniques, do so at their own peril. The odds overwhelmingly predict that they will fail in every respect.

Drug addiction is not a disease. Real solutions do exist.

Clearing away psychiatry’s false information about drugs and addiction is not only a fundamental part of restoring hope, it is the first step towards achieving real drug rehabilitation.

Psychiatry is NOT REAL – It Is A Made Up Profession – Please Read

By educating yourself with the facts about psychiatry, you will have the information you need to never become a victim of this vicious pseudo-science. Presented here are twenty CCHR publications detailing the harmful effects of psychiatry—from their destruction of artistic creativity to their blatant attacks on entire generations of children.

Protect yourself with the truth. Find out what psychiatrists don’t want you to know.

The psychiatric profession purports to be the sole arbiter on the subject of mental health and “diseases” of the mind. The facts, however, demonstrate otherwise:

1. PSYCHIATRIC “DISORDERS” ARE NOT MEDICAL DISEASES.

In medicine, strict criteria exist for calling a condition a disease: a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology (function) must be proven and established. Chills and fever are symptoms. Malaria and typhoid are diseases. Diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical tests. Yet, no mental “diseases” have ever been proven to medically exist.

2. PSYCHIATRISTS DEAL EXCLUSIVELY WITH MENTAL “DISORDERS,” NOT PROVEN DISEASES.

While mainstream physical medicine treats diseases, psychiatry can only deal with “disorders.” In the absence of a known cause or physiology, a group of symptoms seen in many different patients is called a disorder or syndrome. Harvard Medical School’s Joseph Glenmullen, MD, says that in psychiatry, “all of its diagnoses are merely syndromes [or disorders], clusters of symptoms presumed to be related, not diseases.” As Dr. Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, observes, “There is no blood or other biological test to ascertain the presence or absence of a mental illness, as there is for most bodily diseases.”

3. PSYCHIATRY HAS NEVER ESTABLISHED THE CAUSE OF ANY “MENTAL DISORDERS.”

Leading psychiatric agencies such as the World Psychiatric Association and the US National Institute of Mental Health admit that psychiatrists do not know the causes or cures for any mental disorder or what their “treatments” specifically do to the patient. They have only theories and conflicting opinions about their diagnoses and methods, and are lacking any scientific basis for these. As a past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, “The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness.”

4. THE THEORY THAT MENTAL DISORDERS DERIVE FROM A “CHEMICAL IMBALANCE” IN THE BRAIN IS UNPROVEN OPINION, NOT FACT.

One prevailing psychiatric theory (key to psychotropic drug sales) is that mental disorders result from a chemical imbalance in the brain. As with its other theories, there is no biological or other evidence to prove this. Representative of a large group of medical and biochemistry experts, Elliot Valenstein, Ph.D., author of Blaming the Brain says: “[T]here are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain.”

5. THE BRAIN IS NOT THE REAL CAUSE OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS.

People do experience problems and upsets in life that may result in mental troubles, sometimes very serious. But to represent that these troubles are caused by incurable “brain diseases” that can only be alleviated with dangerous pills is dishonest, harmful and often deadly. Such drugs are often more potent than a narcotic and capable of driving one to violence or suicide. They mask the real cause of problems in life and debilitate the individual, so denying him or her the opportunity for real recovery and hope for the future.

In My Opinion…

There’s an answer to what is termed psychiatric disorders.  The Answer is Jesus Christ. When He was here on earth, 2000 years ago, there was no such thing as mental disorders or diseases.  There was only deliverance from demon possession and oppression. What was true then, is true today.  The Bible is NOT outdated! Despair and brokenness cause many problems that greedy doctors call, ‘psychiatric problems’. When a person allows fear into their lives, the dark forces that be in this world will attack.  Doctors call these attacks depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, etc.  God calls them the result of sin. 

What would happen if psychiatrists’ patients realized this?  What would happen to the billions of dollars each year in revenue collected by psychiatrists, psychologists,  big pharma and pharmacies if there were no more need to psychiatric drugs?  What would happen to detox centers and rehabs?  Hmmmmm… something to consider!

Studies Show Treating Depression With SSRI Drugs May Seriously Sabotage Your Well-Being

taking-pills

Mild depression. Situational depression. Anxiety. These don’t seem like the types of psychological problems that would lead to aggression, addiction and suicide. Yet, that is exactly what’s happening more frequently than ever before.

Thriving Mental Health Market
When Prozac came out in 1988, it was supposed to make everyone happier. Eli Lilly sold us on the idea that Prozac will solve depression and a host of other mental problems. What really happened is the reverse!

Americans went from spending $38 billion on mental health in 1988, to a staggering $201 billion in 2013. Health Affairs, which reported the latter statistic, found that this is more than Americans spent on any other condition.

Even in 2001, when Eli Lilly’s Prozac patent expired, Statista reports no drop in overall cost, even with cheaper rival drugs available on the market.

Today, more people are taking SSRI drugs than ever before. It is estimated that one in four Americans will experience a mental health condition at some point in their life. If Prozac and all the other flavors of SSRI drugs were working, why are things getting worse?

Side-effects of Treating Depression with SSRI Drugs
A more-disturbing trend surfaces when you take an in-depth look at the effects that SSRI drugs have on people, especially youth.

In a New Zealand study, researchers Read et al. surveyed 1,829 adults who were taking antidepressants. They asked about the side-effects that the individuals experienced. Here’s what they found:

Eight of the 20 adverse effects studied were reported by over half the participants; most frequently Sexual Difficulties (62%) and Feeling Emotionally Numb (60%). Percentages for other effects included: Feeling Not Like Myself – 52%, Reduction In Positive Feelings – 42%, Caring Less About Others – 39%, Suicidality – 39% and Withdrawal Effects – 55%.

An important point that the researchers make follows:

Total Adverse Effect scores were related to younger age, lower education and income, and type of antidepressant, but not to level of depression prior to taking antidepressants.

Therefore, it seems that even if you have mild to moderate depression, you are just as likely to experience hostile and disruptive side-effects. Is the trade-off worth it?

Another important point from the New Zealand study is that, “total adverse effect scores were related to younger age…”. Looking at page 68 of the study, the side effects more prevalent in younger participants included: Not Feeling Like Myself – 52%, Agitation – 47%, Feeling Emotionally Numb – 60.4%, Suicidality – 39% and Caring Less About Others – 39%.

Thus, younger study participants were more likely to experience side-effects when taking antidepressants. Particularly, the effects seem to make them mentally less stable.

The Sabotage of Young Minds
Thus, what effect do SSRI drugs have on children and teens? Unfortunately, there’s a growing number of parents and children who fall victim to the side-effects that SSRIs commonly induce. Below is a compilation of videos that show the negative impact that antidepressants are having on families.

All of this research and anecdotal evidence make me wonder why these drugs are even legal. If a child, teen or young adult is depressed, would you be willing to risk putting them on antidepressants? Can we not think of any better solution to recommend? Something that helps them feel emotion, find themselves, learn to care about others, and find a passion for life? Not the reverse.

What’s even crazier is that research is starting to show antidepressants might not even work on children. One study from 2016 authored by Cipriani et al. examined 34 eligible trails on 5260 participants and 14 antidepressant treatments. The authors concluded:

When considering the risk–benefit profile of antidepressants in the acute treatment of major depressive disorder, these drugs do not seem to offer a clear advantage for children and adolescents.

The Role of Drug Companies
It may be somewhat perplexing that doctors are still prescribing antidepressants in high numbers. It seems that scientific research and the experiences of consumers illustrate there are significant ramifications to taking these drugs.

How is it that so many people and doctors are ignorant about psychiatric drugs? Peter Breggin, M.D. and author of many books answers:

The truth is because they are all getting their information from the drug companies. They [the drug companies] go through all kinds of extremes to avoid letting you know and letting your doctor know how dangerous the drugs are.

Dr. Breggin has been a medical expert in dozens of lawsuits against drug companies, including over 150 lawsuits against Eli Lilly alleging the drug Prozac caused violence, suicide and psychosis. He has insider knowledge of what drug companies are doing to keep the truth about SSRI drugs out of the public eye.

Listen below, to Dr. Breggin’s expert opinion about psychiatric drugs.

Could Food be the Cause and the Answer?
The physical, emotional and interpersonal side-effects of antidepressants show that SSRI drugs will not solve the problem of mental health. In my personal opinion, they are making things worse.

I do not wish to undermine the struggle of people who suffer from depression or any other mental ailment. I have a first-hand understanding of what it’s like to feel to utterly hopeless, you seek medical help.

Yet, there may a better solution.

Professor Julia Rucklidge from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand examined the possible link between diet and mental illness. She found many association studies and longitudinal studies that show diet has a significant impact on mental health. Watch her full presentation below, where she references countless studies.

In her talk, Rucklidge refers to the SUN Project study. This is one of the largest studies that examined the link between food and depression. It tracked over 12,000 participants during a term of six years.

All the participants were initially free of depression. After six years, researchers identified 657 cases of depression. They concluded that a “detrimental relationship” exists between intake of trans unsaturated fatty acids and depression.

Trans fats (or trans fatty acids) are created in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make them more solid. The process is used in the production of many processed and fast foods.

The typical Western diet is full of trans fats. These substances can be found in foods like doughnuts, baked goods, biscuits, frozen pizza, cookies, crackers and margarines. As well, fried foods like French fries and chicken nuggets are also high in trans fats.

Is it possible that the Western diet is the culprit for the growth in mental illness? And thus, is a solution for a certain share of sufferers as simple as changing one’s diet? It’s refreshing to see more research and an increasing number of medical professionals explore this topic.

Please feel free to share your experiences with depression or SSRI drugs.
