Taking apart psychiatry: fraud-kings of the mind

Taking apart psychiatry: fraud-kings of the mind

Exploding the myth of “good science”

by Jon Rappoport

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

“Promoting diabolically false science, psychiatry creates a gateway for defining many separate states of consciousness that don’t exist at all. They’re cheap myths, fairy tales.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

USA Today, January 26, 2016: “Primary care doctors should screen all adults for depression, an expert panel recommended Tuesday.”

—Let’s screen everybody to find out if they have mental disorders. Let’s diagnose as many people as possible with mental disorders and give them toxic drugs—

Wherever you see organized psychiatry operating, you see it trying to expand its domain and its dominance. The Hippocratic Oath to do no harm? Are you kidding?

The first question to ask is: do these mental disorders have any scientific basis? There are now roughly 300 of them. They multiply like fruit flies.

An open secret has been bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

In a PBS Frontline episode, Does ADHD Exist?, Dr. Russell Barkley, an eminent professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, unintentionally spelled out the fraud.

PBS FRONTLINE INTERVIEWER: Skeptics say that there’s no biological marker—that it [ADHD] is the one condition out there where there is no blood test, and that no one knows what causes it.

BARKLEY: That’s tremendously naïve, and it shows a great deal of illiteracy about science and about the mental health professions. A disorder doesn’t have to have a blood test to be valid. If that were the case, all mental disorders would be invalid… There is no lab test for any mental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid. [Emphasis added]

Oh, indeed, that does make them invalid. Utterly and completely. All 297 mental disorders. They’re all hoaxes. Because there are no defining tests of any kind to back up the diagnosis.

You can sway and tap dance and bloviate all you like and you won’t escape the noose around your neck. We are looking at a science that isn’t a science. That’s called fraud. Rank fraud.

There’s more. Under the radar, one of the great psychiatric stars, who has been out in front inventing mental disorders, went public. He blew the whistle on himself and his colleagues. And for years, almost no one noticed.

His name is Dr. Allen Frances, and he made VERY interesting statements to Gary Greenberg, author of a Wired article: “Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness.” (Dec.27, 2010).

Major media never picked up on the interview in any serious way. It never became a scandal.

Dr. Allen Frances is the man who, in 1994, headed up the project to write the latest edition of the psychiatric bible, the DSM-IV. This tome defines and labels and describes every official mental disorder. The DSM-IV eventually listed 297 of them.

In an April 19, 1994, New York Times piece, “Scientist At Work,” Daniel Goleman called Frances “Perhaps the most powerful psychiatrist in America at the moment…”

Well, sure. If you’re sculpting the entire canon of diagnosable mental disorders for your colleagues, for insurers, for the government, for Pharma (who will sell the drugs matched up to the 297 DSM-IV diagnoses), you’re right up there in the pantheon.

Long after the DSM-IV had been put into print, Dr. Frances talked to Wired’s Greenberg and said the following:

“There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.”

BANG.

That’s on the order of the designer of the Hindenburg, looking at the burned rubble on the ground, remarking, “Well, I knew there would be a problem.”

After a suitable pause, Dr. Frances remarked to Greenberg, “These concepts [of distinct mental disorders] are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the borders.”

Frances might have been obliquely referring to the fact that his baby, the DSM-IV, had rearranged earlier definitions of ADHD and Bipolar to permit many MORE diagnoses, leading to a vast acceleration of drug-dosing with highly powerful and toxic compounds.

If this is medical science, a duck is a rocket ship.

To repeat, Dr. Frances’ work on the DSM IV allowed for MORE toxic drugs to be prescribed, because the definitions of Bipolar and ADHD were expanded to include more people.

Adverse effects of Valproate (given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;

* life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;

* brain damage.

Adverse effects of Lithium (also given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* intercranial pressure leading to blindness;

* peripheral circulatory collapse;

* stupor and coma.

Adverse effects of Risperdal (given for “Bipolar” and “irritability stemming from autism”) include:

* serious impairment of cognitive function;

* fainting;

* restless muscles in neck or face, tremors (may be indicative of motor brain damage).

Dr. Frances self-admitted label-juggling act also permitted the definition of ADHD to expand, thereby opening the door for greater and greater use of Ritalin (and other similar compounds) as the treatment of choice.

So…what about Ritalin?

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse effects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

* Paranoid delusions

* Paranoid psychosis

* Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis

* Activation of psychotic symptoms

* Toxic psychosis

* Visual hallucinations

* Auditory hallucinations

* Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences

* Effects pathological thought processes

* Extreme withdrawal

* Terrified affect

* Started screaming

* Aggressiveness

* Insomnia

* Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects

* Psychic dependence

* High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug

* Decreased REM sleep

* When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia

* Convulsions

* Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

In the US alone, there are at least 300,000 cases of motor brain damage incurred by people who have been prescribed so-called anti-psychotic drugs (aka “major tranquilizers”). Risperdal (mentioned above as a drug given to people diagnosed with Bipolar) is one of those major tranquilizers. (source: Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Peter Breggin, St. Martin’s Press, 1991)

This psychiatric drug plague is accelerating across the land.

Where are the mainstream reporters and editors and newspapers and TV anchors who should be breaking this story and mercilessly hammering on it week after week? They are in harness.

Thank you, Dr. Frances.

Let’s take a little trip back in time and review how one psychiatric drug, Prozac, escaped a bitter fate, by hook and by crook. It’s an instructive case.

Prozac, in fact, endured a rocky road in the press for a while. Stories on it rarely appear now. The major media have backed off. But on February 7th, 1991, Amy Marcus’ Wall Street Journal article on the drug carried the headline, “Murder Trials Introduce Prozac Defense.”

She wrote, “A spate of murder trials in which defendants claim they became violent when they took the antidepressant Prozac are imposing new problems for the drug’s maker, Eli Lilly and Co.”

Also on February 7, 1991, the New York Times ran a Prozac piece headlined, “Suicidal Behavior Tied Again to Drug: Does Antidepressant Prompt Violence?”

In his landmark book, Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Breggin mentions that the Donahue show (Feb. 28, 1991) “put together a group of individuals who had become compulsively self-destructive and murderous after taking Prozac and the clamorous telephone and audience response confirmed the problem.”

A shocking review-study published in The Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases (1996, v.184, no.2), written by Rhoda L. Fisher and Seymour Fisher, called “Antidepressants for Children,” concludes:

“Despite unanimous literature of double-blind studies indicating that antidepressants are no more effective than placebos in treating depression in children and adolescents, such medications continue to be in wide use.”

An instructive article, “Protecting Prozac,” by Michael Grinfeld, in the December 1998 California Lawyer, opens several doors. Grinfeld notes that “in the past year nearly a dozen cases involving Prozac have disappeared from the court record.” He was talking about law suits against the manufacturer, Eli Lilly, and he was saying that those cases had apparently been settled, without trial, in such a quiet and final way, with such strict confidentiality, that it is almost as if they never happened.

Grinfeld details a set of maneuvers involving attorney Paul Smith, who in the early 1990s became the lead plaintiffs’ counsel in the famous Fentress lawsuit against Eli Lilly.

The plaintiffs made the accusation that Prozac had induced a man to commit murder. This was the first action involving Prozac to reach a trial and jury, so it would establish a major precedent for a large number of other pending suits against the manufacturer.

The case: On September 14, 1989, Joseph Wesbecker, a former employee of Standard Gravure, in Louisville, Kentucky, walked into the workplace, with an AK-47 and a SIG Sauer pistol, killed eight people, wounded 12 others, and committed suicide. Family members of the victims subsequently sued Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac, on the grounds that Wesbecker had been pushed over the edge into violence by the drug.

The trial: After what many people thought was a very weak attack on Lilly by plaintiffs’ lawyer Smith, the jury came back in five hours with an easy verdict favoring Lilly and Prozac.

Grinfeld writes, “Lilly’s defense attorneys predicted the verdict would be the death knell for [anti-]Prozac litigation.”

But that wasn’t the end of the Fentress case. “Rumors began to circulate that [the plaintiffs’ attorney] Smith had made several [prior] oral agreements with Lilly concerning the evidence that would be presented [in Fentress], the structure of a postverdict settlement, and the potential resolution of Smith’s other [anti-Prozac] cases.”

In other words, the rumors declared: This plaintiff’s lawyer, Smith, made a deal with Lilly to present a weak attack, to omit evidence damaging to Prozac, so that the jury would find Lilly innocent of all charges. In return, the case would be settled secretly, with Lilly paying out big monies to Smith’s client. In this way, Lilly would avoid the exposure of a public settlement, and through the innocent verdict, would discourage other potential plaintiffs from suing it over Prozac.

The rumors congealed. The judge in the Fentress case, John Potter, asked lawyers on both sides if “money had changed hands.” He wanted to know if the fix was in. The lawyers said no money had been paid, “without acknowledging that an agreement was in place.”

Judge Potter didn’t stop there. In April 1995, Grinfeld notes, “In court papers, Potter wrote that he was surprised that the plaintiffs’ attorneys [Smith] hadn’t introduced evidence that Lilly had been charged criminally for failing to report deaths from another of its drugs to the Food and Drug Administration. Smith had fought hard [during the Fentress trial] to convince Potter to admit that evidence, and then unaccountably withheld it.”

In Judge Potter’s motion, he alleged that “Lilly [in the Fentress case] sought to buy not just the verdict, but the court’s judgment as well.”

In 1996, the Kentucky Supreme Court issued an opinion: “…there was a serious lack of candor with the trial court [during Fentress] and there may have been deception, bad faith conduct, abuse of the judicial process or perhaps even fraud.”

After the Supreme Court remanded the Fentress case back to the state attorney general’s office, the whole matter dribbled away, and then resurfaced in a different form, in another venue. At the time of the California Lawyer article, a new action against Smith was unresolved. Eventually, Eli Lilly escaped punishment.

Based on the rigged Fentress case, Eli Lilly silenced many lawsuits based on Prozac inducing murder and suicide.

Quite a story.

And it all really starts with the institution of psychiatry inventing a whole branch of science that doesn’t exist, thereby defining 300 mental disorders that don’t exist.

Here’s a coda:

This one is big.

The so-called “chemical-imbalance theory of mental illness is dead.

Dr. Ronald Pies, the editor-in-chief emeritus of the Psychiatric Times, laid the theory to rest in the July 11, 2011, issue of the Times with this staggering admission:

“In truth, the ‘chemical imbalance’ notion was always a kind of urban legend — never a theory seriously propounded by well-informed psychiatrists.”

Boom.

Dead.

However…urban legend? No. For decades the whole basis of psychiatric drug research, drug prescription, and drug sales has been: “we’re correcting a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

The problem was, researchers had never established a normal baseline for chemical balance. So they were shooting in the dark. Worse, they were faking a theory. Pretending they knew something when they didn’t.

In his 2011 piece in Psychiatric Times, Dr. Pies tries to cover his colleagues in the psychiatric profession with this fatuous remark:

“In the past 30 years, I don’t believe I have ever heard a knowledgeable, well-trained psychiatrist make such a preposterous claim [about chemical imbalance in the brain], except perhaps to mock it…the ‘chemical imbalance’ image has been vigorously promoted by some pharmaceutical companies, often to the detriment of our patients’ understanding.”

Absurd. First of all, many psychiatrists have explained and do explain to their patients that the drugs are there to correct a chemical imbalance.

And second, if all well-trained psychiatrists have known, all along, that the chemical-imbalance theory is a fraud…

…then why on earth have they been prescribing tons of drugs to their patients…

…since those drugs are developed on the false premise that they correct a chemical imbalance?


power outside the matrix


Here’s what’s happening. The honchos of psychiatry are seeing the handwriting on the wall. Their game has been exposed. They’re taking heavy flack on many fronts.

The chemical-imbalance theory is a fake. There are no defining physical tests for any of the 300 so-called mental disorders. All diagnoses are based on arbitrary clusters or menus of human behavior. The drugs are harmful, dangerous, toxic. Some of them induce violence. Suicide, homicide. Some of the drugs cause brain damage.

Psychiatry is a pseudo-pseudo science.

So the shrinks have to move into another model, another con, another fraud. And they’re looking for one.

For example, genes plus “psycho-social factors.” A mish-mash of more unproven science.

“New breakthrough research on the functioning of the brain is paying dividends and holds great promise…” Professional gibberish.

It’s all gibberish, all the way down.

Meanwhile, the business model demands drugs for sale.

So even though the chemical-imbalance nonsense has been discredited, it will continue on as a dead man walking, a zombie.

Big Pharma isn’t going to back off. Trillions of dollars are at stake.

And in the wake of Aurora, Colorado, Sandy Hook, the Naval Yard, and other mass shootings, the hype is expanding: “we must have new community mental-health centers all over America.”

More fake diagnosis of mental disorders, more devastating drugs.

You want to fight for a right? Fight for the right to refuse medication. Fight for the right of every parent to refuse medication for his/her child.

    Excellent article and well researched…have you done anything on Lyme disease? I only ask because it relates to AIDS in a way. Biofilms. back in the late 1980s i got a peek at some final research for an AIDS vaccine. 15% of the time IT GAVE the monkeys full blown AIDS 34% it seemed to prevent it, the rest of the time it was unexpressed. (the study was less than a year) . When i saw this it was clear there was something we just did not understand about the process, either the human immune system and/or the virus….or maybe there was something else happening altogether. In the Lyme disease epidemic this biofilm phenomena has appeared. Biofilm may explain the discrepancy….Just wondered if you had looked into it. Again, great article….

  2. Alabaster says:

    Great phrase…’fraud-kings of the mind’. Not only that but no one, such as psychiatry, has ever proven the brain is the mind. The psychs, including neuroscience, base everything on the idea that the brain is the source of all emotion, feelings, thoughts, ideas, ambitions, desires, imagination, love, likes, dislikes, as well as any spiritual beliefs. All these things are the product of chemicals, electricity, and neurons (cells) in a meat brain. Matter. ‘You’, other than that, don’t exist. Psychs have tests—subjective opinions based on arbitrary checklists of behaviors. Not a single objective test. Sort of like the worst, most incorrect place to start from, acting in a total confusion, toward a dead-end of nowhere.

  3. Carol Bryant says:

    Excellent article. Many years ago, as a university psychology student, a biology professor told me pretty much the same thing. He convince me that it was not “hard science,” and as a result, after a lot of thought, I changed my major. I wish he were still alive so I could discuss this article with him; he would love it.

  4. Freeme says:

    THANKS JON for an excellent article. In addition I would like to add that Scientology took ELI LILLEY to court regarding PROZAC prior to the dates you mentioned in this article. Thus Scientology HAD to be attacked and made wrong for they dared to point to the ‘smoking gun’ of hundreds of thousands of people falling victim to BIG PHARMA drugs.

    Citizens Commission for Human Rights has a knock out video regarding pharmaceuticals
    with not only victims testimonies but those of supporting medical doctors and psychiatrists and psychologists against the drugging of America. Updates include the drugging of the US Military for ‘PTSD’ which has an
    agenda of disarming any military
    members who have or wish to own
    guns if they were diagnosed with
    PTSD…that serves a multi-faceted purpose for disarming America in general. The pseudo psychiatric cabal is coming to light, however, much more needs to go viral on internet as the MSM will say nothing
    regarding the biggest danger to humans on planet Earth.

    THANKS AGAIN! Keep up the good work.

  5. Kim says:

    I believe the last word out is no antidepressants for children as it may make them violent or suicidal. They give out ADHD meds because teachers can’t handle the disruptive kids which probably need more physical exercise classes anyway. All of them need more physical and art and music classes. Truly there are kids with bad diets or no attention at home that need something. School needs to change as we are producing lazy teens and adults. No one is fit anymore. I think there is a need for some antidepressants for adults for a short period of time. Sometimes things happen to people which are very traumatizing, like PTSD and devastating illnesses. I see 6-12 months for a few of these, then find a new pathway. It’s all about money. Drugs should not be allowed to be advertised on TV like cigs & alcohol were banned.
    Remember when women’s menses were a psychiatric disorder?

  6. StandingUp says:

    Jon, you answered my query upon this post at a difficult time in mine and my 7 year old’s life. I have been validated. Thank you.

  7. Daniel Arnaud says:

    Dr. Abram Hoffer started treating schizophrenia with high dose niacin around 1950. He was successful and wrote several books on the subject. Of course, American Psychiatric Association rejected the idea (maybe reduced income?). Look for the books or you can read some articles on the subject on http://www.DoctorYourself.com.

    • Dr Hoffer’s work was continued by Dr Carl Pfeiffer who worked with him, and his work was continued by Dr Walsh likewise. I know because 4 months ago I first heard of Pyrrole Disorder AKA Pyroluria and started treatment for it under the auspices of a doctor trained by Dr Walsh using nothing but vitamins and minerals (B6 and zinc mostly). I have now been free of the psychiatric medications and the terrible depression, anxiety, and OCD which they only partially relieved as well as inflicting unbearable side effects. After 20 years of debilitating mental illness I am now pursuing a career in medicine hoping to do the same that was done for me. I think Hoffer should one day be given a posthumous Nobel prize, even though they don’t actually do that. Jon says it’s not biochemical, but I believe that biochemistry is definitely involved, just not the way it’s conventionally understood. http://www.walshinstitute.org/

      @Daniel Arnaud

      Another madman spouts of a pet theory about something he knows very little off.
      Read something for godsakes and educate yourself. Regurgitation is not you being smart.

      Schizphrenia is not a mental disorder, it is not dangerous. So called schizophrenics have been branded for years as the extreme of the gallery of other mental deviants.
      Branded and rebranded as scary individuals by media, movies and people like yourself as uncontrollable, completely mad, crazy and capable of the most dangerouse of things….its all bullshit.

      Schizophrenics are gifted psychics, telepaths or telekinetics or clairvoyants to say a minimum, some have multiple gifts, but they are not mental cases. The ostracized schizo, ends usually on the extreme edge of society, drooling and burned out. The nonsense of people like yourself causes them to end life prematurely, because they are not like you.

      In proper situations they would be taught how to use those gifts without them becoming a problem to themselves…they are ones that suffer the most.

      in Shamanic societies, schizos are very special people.

      Only in western civivilization were normality is applying the intelligence and attention span of a the average gebil; are they a problem, they are a problem because they gnow.

      • I believe it’s more a case of whether you are able to integrate your difference and use it constructively, or if it ends up hampering you. Whatever gifts you may gain from being different, it can also cause a great deal of suffering. I have known people, myself included, who exhibited varying abilities to percieve information and affect reality in ways that are unaccountable by reductionist science. These people also believed that popstars were writing songs specifically about them and that they had platoons of psychic special forces of the Illuminati (or whoever is supposed to be running the world) actively interfering in their life among other things.The latter may well be true but it seems unlikely to me, considering their apparent lack of importance in the world. In my case what I call my delusion was caused by excessive potent hydroponic weed consumption to deal with my other mental disorders, and yes they were disorders. I wouldn’t wish them on anyone. Whatever Dr Hoffer was (and he is a hero to me), he was able to provide relief to people whose difference was such that it interfered with their ability to function, an do so effectively in a way that didn’t involve pharmaceutical drugs. I’m one of them. http://biochemicalhealth.org/whats-this-all-about-then-2/testimonials/

          Bullshit Dom, you have never been gifted then, there is no pain and suffering except from the braindead, and the zombifyied. And those that took the blue pill and wake up comfy in there bed with a nice tranquilizer to put them into non pain mode. Pain and if you will suffering is the gig here man. Have’nt you listened to the Blues. Art is the trancending of pain and suffering.

          The object of the game is to get on top of all that here and now and find your true self and fly baby.

        While playing football in his Hope Road home in Kingston Jamaica, oftentimes “madmen” would come to the fence of the home. Bob would invite them in and listen to what they had to say.

        Bob knew that these “madmen” had something special and could see things others could not. And, being highly intelligent, Bob wanted to know what they were seeing.

        This Babylon System that has noose around the neck of all the people, except the “chosen” ones, of course, tightens up, little by little every day. Bob knew this and was telling the people.

    If only one parent forgoes poisoning there child after reading this article you have done something good and morally correct, Jon. Keep up the great articles, you are a breath of fresh air. I have a personnel yardstick if MSM are praising or pushing something I think the opposite.

  10. In fairness to Frances (who you’ve slightly misquoted, in my opinion, Jon) and other psychiatry “professionals”, the practice has been around from the time when all men were [deemed] savages https://exopolitician.wordpress.com/2016/02/14/the-fall-of-mankind/ (even the pseudepigraphal “Book of Enoch” highlights the practice as “blows to the soul”).

    The issue is when credentials not only transcend but become the excuse for reason, i.e.. “well the eminent professor bubble-brain said it so it must be correct”. What makes a good tune in music? I think that’s where Frances was leading. Yes, we identified a “conditional environment” where “within range” judgement can be made. The problem is psychiatry needs REAL professionals and these guys must be virtuosos of their craft. Unfortunately, it has attracted “tone deaf” idealist philosophers. No wonder inappropriate/ineffective toxic medications are relied upon as “solution”. “Chimps” only understand peanuts or bananas. The blind lead the deaf.

      @Ozzie

      Have to disagree with you Ozzie.
      You don’t have knowledge here…correct me if I am wrong, but have you ever been to a psychiatrist, have ever had extensive application of their…skills…applyed to your person, over a prolonged period of time. To your brain chemistry; to your psyche; to your soul; to someone you…love.

      No one has the right here to fuck with anyones head, consciousness or soul. It is the really nasty dirty part of the grand machine, the matrix that we all live in.

      A psychiatrist is no more than a South American native head shrinker. They are the freuds and the world. Every bit of it is about selling drugs, and subjugation of the individual.

      Ninety -nine out of a hundred shrinks are lucky they can find their ass with both hands. They are technicians with Big Pharma supplyed diagnostic techniques to impliment a regime of chemical assault.

      Never, and I mean ‘NEVER” let a shrink near you or anyone you love. To do that is to bring a shit storm down on your life. You go in one end a confused human, and come out the other end thinking your a turnip.

      What are mental probems; nutritional problems; allergy problems of certain foods; parents and bullying and peer pressure are the problem of most teen depression.

      I can not stress enough how important, clean water, fresh clean air, exercise, and nutririonally sound diet is for the growing child.
      The adage is the same for computers; strangely we treat them better than we do the average child’s mind; garbage in, garbage out.

      HFCS, Aspertame, fats, and fast carbs, caffeine in softdrinks, energy drinks, and GMO’ed crap food are not to be in the diet of a growing child. Food should be living when it goes into a child’s body, 60 % should be vegetable.
      What about cell phones and smart devices, submersion in WiFi, a regular sleep of eight to ten hours is neccessary for a growing child.
      What about common core chiselling away at a bright mind. ther are a host of other things. But none of it relate at all to brain chemistry.

      The only good psychiatrist….well, that does’nt exist does it.

      • Michael, I have to disagree with you here too. I have a number of colleagues in the psychiatry “profession” and they fear [respect] me like God. Psychiatric problems are REAL. Currently, diagnosis is appalling (i.e. people with no issues being “branded” ill, great numbers of “doctors” that simply shouldn’t be practicing). I suggest you read my comment again within this context and should make sense. All the points you mention are exceptionally valid and I do not disagree with them but a PROPERLY TRAINED psychiatrist will have gone through the process of elimination.

          @Ozzie

          Well that is all fine and dandy that they fear you Ozzie, like your God…the psychiatrists that is…and that they are your collleagues. I did’nt realize you were a mental health professional. I thought you were something else; I don’t know what I thought you were…
          Anyway, what you’ve stated does not make me wrong.

          To sit down with someone for a few moments to a few hours, even a few days, or weeks, and come up with an exactitude of what is going on inside of that person’s head, psyche, mind, soul is baffling actually, bullshit really and completely. It is legitimized… conjering..in fact simply conjecture; there is no truth to what herr doctor says.

          A properly trained psychiatrist, that’s hilarious…lol…who possibly could train a pyschiatrist in the process of mind reading, psyche reading, brain chemistry guesswork; applying what comes from a patients mouth as being even the truth of what he is feeling emotionally never mind what is going on inside his head, emotionally.
          A psychiatrist is somneone with a God complex.

          • Michael, what is your point lol We same to be saying the same thing in different ways. Quackery is not limited to psychiatry http://www.hlfteam.com/more-doctors-confessing-to-intentionally-diagnosing-healthy-people-with-cancer-to-make-money/. The divide seems to be over the potential for someone to be, dare I say it, MENTALLY ILL. Here we appear to categorically disagree. You’re coming up with all the “bullshit” and ignoring that “mad” people do exist, people with significant neural processing issues do exist. What happens to these? Are they marginalised and tossed back at society with a “clean bill of health” thanks to your altruism? I could very easily turn the “so I didn’t realise you are a mental health professional” quip back on you, MB, because you are sounding as though you are pretending to be one. Like you, I confront my associates with the TRUTH and it makes them feel hellishly uneasy and that’s why they fear me like God. Have a nice day. OT🙂

            • Michael Burns says:

              Mad people do exist…really, by who’s standard. Yours, the western world’s. Schools of psychiatry. Please tell; by who’s standard.
              These things are more subtle blunt objects to beat down even more a brainwashed, and enslaved human race.
              By all intentsive purposes I could surmiss that your meanderings around aliens and exopolitics are a sign of your insanity, a total madness. Not that I do…so don’t get me wrong. But it could be deduced as that…what I am saying is there is no such thing unless a human is legitimizes by a standard of humaness. A measuring stick is held up and a human fails or passes.
              Logic is a tool to be used to gain a truth, it is not the truth. Some of the greatest incepts I have heard have come out of the mouth of the supposedly insane.

              Your getting touchy Oz. Tit for tat ozzie…gimme a break, you specifically used the term “Colleagues”…should I define it.

              I am no such thing as a mental health professional, pretense is not desired for me. I mental health profession has no more value for me than a psychic at a carny.
              ‘I ‘ have acquired a knowledge of the mental health systems workings. I have been in the inquisitors room…

            • I’m talking about ones that cut peoples’ heads off for fun. We are in different places on this one, Michael. Discussions are tedious and pointless. Move on. I have.

    Jon, another point here is the challenge inherent in withdrawing from the use of certain antidepressants, most notably paroxetine (Paxil) and venlafaxine (Effexor). I’ve read hundreds of anecdotal reports from patients revealing the miseries they’ve endured…despite following established protocols for weaning one of from these two drugs.

    I only came to fully appreciate this when I tried to stop Effexor.

    I was diagnosed with major depression in 2002 based on a single, short but severe episode. That episode did not meet DSM criteria for major depression but I got my Effexor “habit” locked in anyway. Later, the diagnosis was changed to bipolar disorder 2 and two anticonvulsants were added to my regimen.

    After years of being depression free and “suffering” only from so-called hypomania (which, if anything, is an asset in my work!), I tried to wean from Effexor.

    Forget the “minor” side effects…the elephant in my room was episodes of awakening while gasping for air, followed by fainting when I got out of bed. This happened multiple times and on the last occasion I sustained a deep head wound an inch from my left eye after falling during yet another syncopal event. I had no choice. I restarted the full dose of Effexor XR. No more of these events occurred and its been five years since the last one.

    Paradoxically I’m shelling out over $450/year to a Manitoba Rx outlet to continue taking a toxic chemical compound…whose only “benefit” is preventing a scary side effect that the compound itself induced. I believe irreversible damage has been done to one or both of my neurotransmitter mechanisms that are tampered with by this drug.

    Does this history essentially prove that these potentially lethal occurrences were a consequence of trying to withdraw?

    Given their abrupt and permanent discontinuance after restarting Effexor, yes, it does.

    I write about medical and nervous (psychiatric) disorders in my work. After 40 years, I’ve come to the sober conclusion that much – but not all – of what passes for “mental illness” is, at best, fanciful and unproven.

    This came to a head with DSM-5. It would be informative for your readers to learn what Dr. Frances has said and written about DSM-5. In short, it was a huge gift to pharmaceutical companies via reducing the criteria needed to make established “diagnoses” and adding insult to injury by conjuring a number of new “disorders” (the most egregious of which alleges that reduced interest in sex on the part of women is an “illness” in need of Rx!).

    Ergo, “honey, I’ve got a headache” is actually a manifestation of neurochemical brain dysfunction!

    Thank you, Jon, for your courageous investigative reporting…and watch your back, man. You’re jostling with some Big Dogs now!

  12. Michael Burns says:

    @hank
    Good for you…I like it.
    Have you looked at world-wide sales of Paxil and Effexor

    “You’re jostling with some Big Dogs now!”….Hank

    Nah…they are just your regular old street corner thug drug dealers.
    They talk about the war on drugs and a little weed or what not on the streets.

    Fucking near 70% of the American public are on some kind of anti-depressant; being used as an anti-deppressant, or to quite smoking or get a penis errect, or stop leaky bladder, or an acne problem. Or stop skin tag…. It is absolutely insane.
    The end goal is 100 % of the population on something.

    The scary truth.

  14. Jon,
    I’m commenting with a slightly edited version of a comment I wrote on an Australian Pyrrole Disorder FB support group. It’s a closed group so you wouldn’t be able to see it if I just shared the link, but it’s all mostly there. It’s a comment on someone who posted a link about MK-Ultra http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2013/09/one-shocking-cia-programs-time-project-mkultra/ under a title that was very simiilar to yours.
    MK-Ultra aside, the reason why I feel it is appropriate as a comment to this post is because psychedelics help us to distinguish between genuine insight and psychosis. In my experience the former is characterised by liberation and integration, the latter by suffering and alienation.
    Of course, genuine insight can be gained through much harder effort with greater results than just by taking yet another drug. What I’ve read of what you have to say on the subject says to me that we’re on the same page about this.People may even be born with this. The problem as I see it is with the low signal-to-noise ratio which can result from a badly ‘tuned’ biochemical system such as our brain.
    I’m duplicating this comment because I feel it’s appropriate and I barely have the time to write even this intro, let alone the novel which I think this deserves and will eventually get around to writing. Here goes:

    Strangely enough, there is a connection between Pyrrole Disorder, LSD, and MKUltra. Dr Abram Hoffer and Dr Humphry Osmond worked together on early in the 1950s while they pursued the early hypothesis that psychosis was caused by a chemical made in the brain. The understanding at the time was that LSD caused psychosis, so they gave it to volunteers to see if it would cause psychotic states, and especially if it would cause them to release this strange chemical they noticed in the urine of people with mental illness and which showed up mauve the chromatograph.
    To their astonishment they found that far from producing a psychotic state, it produced a state of profound insight, integration, and actually healed many personal and mental problems the volunteers might have had. Osmond had to come up with a new previously unknown term for the experience, which he called “psychedelic”. The rest is history. Osmond went on to experiment more with LSD while Hoffer went his way towards trying to solve the problem of psychosis using another nutrient-based hypothesis, which eventually led to the idea of what is now known as overmethylation (and conversely, undermethylation).
    Dr Carl Pfeiffer worked with Hoffer and helped expand the Mauve hypothesis into what is known today as Pyrrole Disorder as well as the methylation conundrum (he called it Histadelia and Histapenia for UM and OM respectively because they thought it was caused by the abnormal histamine levels). What is less known is that pror to this he worked on a project to give LSD to volunteer prisoners which turned out to be part of MKUltra.
    It is well known that many of the researchers who did work for MKUltra were not aware of the purpose of the work. I’m not sure of this but I like to think that Pfeiffer was under the impression that he was conducting research into the therapeutic use of LSD, as I have read of such being conducted with great success into getting hardened criminals to gain great insight into their lives and turn them around, accompanied by deep catharsis.
    The CIA abandoned work on LSD because they found that instead of creating mindless programmable drones, the subjects overwhelmingly developed a profound sense of insight into themselves and their place in the universe which caused them to reject all forms of previous cultural programming and look at their problems and those of the world with a ‘fresh perspective’.
    LSD is essentially what precipitated the counterculture movement of the 60s, at least in its most idealistic and pure form. Eventually it was banned for ‘safety reasons’ but only got driven underground.
    That said, I don’t recommend anyone to go out and drop acid right now. The sad case of Oslon and so many others like him illustrates the point that there are rules to taking it which are ignored at great peril. These are Set and Setting. Set refers to the mindset of the person at the time they are taking it. You have to be in a positive frame of mind, or at least in an optimistic state. Agitation, stress, anger, fear, all are likely to create a bad experience. Likewise, Setting refers to the surroundings which must be as pleasant and relaxing as possible for the duration of the ‘trip’. Even then, some bad experiences may occur but the effects are typically not lasting. When it goes wrong is when the oxidative stress caused by a hellish ‘trip’ can presumably cause epigenetic switches to be activated via methylation changes at the neurotransmitter transporter genes in a way that will lead to ‘permanent’ psychosis. This psychosis would be treatable by nutrient therapy just like any other.
    On top of that, driving the LSD production underground meant that what is available today is of dubious quality and dosage, often adulterated if not entiirely replaced by toxic chemicals, unlike the clean predicable pharmaceutical grade (not necessarily a nasty word) stuff that was available before that.
    If you’ve read this far then I commend you. I didn’t intend to write an essay but it’s Friday evening and I’m waiting for my partner to come back from work and it’s important for this to be known. The CIA did horrible stuff and to my mind this has not stopped. In 1973 (the year they destroyed the records for MKUltra) Psychiatry took a turn into junk science with the exile of Hoffer into disgrace with a rigged report, for which we have bogus pharmaceutical treatment of mental illness to thank. Thankfully I believe the tide appears to be turning in that regard at least. http://metabolichealing.com/mental-illness-or-methylation-mutation/
