“Antidepressants are neurotoxic, that is, they harm the brain and disrupt its functions. As a result, they cause innumerable kinds of abnormal thinking and behaviors, including mania, suicide and violence. In the process, they cause detectable damage to the brain of the child or adult, and also to the fetus of pregnant mothers who take the drug.” (Peter Breggin, MD and psychiatrist, author of Toxic Psychiatry, St. Martin’s Press)

“I keep telling people all over the world that there are no reliable lab tests for diagnosing ANY so-called mental disorder. I explain this in great detail. Of course, for many people, this is too much to handle. They run away. What is my strategy for dealing with this? I keep finding new ways to tell them the truth. I don’t stop. That’s what an actual reporter does.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

I came across a Forbes article (5/27/15) by Judy Stone, “Why the U of Minnesota Research Scandal threatens us all.” In the piece, Stone mentions some boggling reports about Americans diagnosed with so-called mental disorders taking psychiatric drugs:

“The use of drugs for mental health conditions in the U.S. is staggering, according to a 2011 mental health report by Medco Health Solutions:”

“—more than one in 5 adults was on at least one psychiatric med in 2010, up 22% from 2000”

“—more than 25% of adult women were on mental health meds in 2010 vs. 15% of men; 21% of women were on antidepressants”

“—11% of women aged 45-65 were on anti-anxiety meds”

“—4% of adults were on medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There are an estimated 5.4 million children carrying a diagnosis of ADHD”

“—The figures for use of these anti-depressants in children are even more appalling, being 2-3%. (This is especially scary since the drugs themselves can increase the risk of suicide).”

These numbers show there is a plague afoot in America—a plague of diagnosing and prescribing drugs.

Over the past 35 years, I’ve spent a great of time reporting on the complete falsity of psychiatric diagnoses, as well as the extreme toxicity of the drugs. We’re talking about nothing short of chemical warfare against the population. The nation is being eaten out from the inside—and all under the guise of proper psychiatric treatment.

I’ve spoken off the record with psychiatrists who readily admit that the whole basis on which mental disorders are labeled and described and diagnosed is a rank fraud; and they’ve also told me that this is an open secret inside the psychiatric profession.

I’ve published quotes from well-known psychiatrists admitting there are NO diagnostic lab tests for ANY of the 300 officially certified and labeled mental disorders.

To grasp the sheer insanity of this, imagine sitting in a doctor’s office chatting for a few minutes, when suddenly the doctor says, “You have cancer.”

“What?!” you say, bolting out of your chair.

“Yes,” the doctor says, “no doubt it’s cancer.”

What about tests??”

“Not necessary. I can tell it’s cancer from your answers to my questions. Anyway, there are no tests…”

Of course, manufacturers of the psychiatric drugs are having a field day. Researchers keep claiming they’ve “discovered” new mental disorders, and the manufacturers keep putting together new drugs to fit these research “breakthroughs.”

Psychiatry has monopolistic protections from the federal government. Without them, in a truly free and competitive market, the profession wouldn’t last another 20 years.

But that’s socialism for you. The government, colluding with corporations and professional organizations, gives credence and primacy to a whole industry that is based on fabrication and does grave harm through its products (the drugs, in this case).

“Dear Citizen, We, the government, care about you and love you. We keep psychiatry alive for you, so you can benefit from the most absurd and unfounded diagnoses possible, and the enormously toxic drugs that follow. Trust us…”

Who could resist such a good deal?

    What if all the drugs and vaccines being pushed was deliberate and an outgrowth of the CIA’s MK ULTRA program? Pushing soma on the masses to turn us into fleshbots like a scene from the matrix. When you think about how In-Q-tel funded all the big brother/stasi like internet companies spying on us and suppressing free speech, its not a big leap to think those same cabal members wouldnt seed fund a few pharmaceutical companies to turn people into zombies.

    • From Quebec says:

      Without those psychiatric drugs. their goal for a Globalist World would be impossible to install.

      Make no mistake, this is why they are pushing psychiatric drugs

    • Rian says:

      this is a very good point. and not unreasonable. l just watched a video on ex cia officer who talks about whistleblowers and was floored at the sworn to secrecy things they must sign and how millions of government officials sign these things, and will get their lives ruined by the establishment if they come forth. it’s like Scientology 10x

  5. Annie says:

    What’s even worse than the number of these drugs being prescribed for a psychiatric diagnosis is the number being prescribed “off-label” i.e. for chronic pain.

    • Christopher says:

      They prescribe Lyrica for chronic pain and one of it’s side effects is suicidal tendencies. It’s the only thing for pain a person can continue to get when failing a hospital’s new drug test after something has just been considered a narcotic (like Tramadol which it supposedly pairs well with). Very expensive too at over 1k for a full bottle but probably cheap on the streets when medical insurance gets bled dry to pay Pfizer for it.

    Who is the #1 Drug Runner right now?… China. Allowed by the unfaithful traitors Bruce Ohr, and Elaine Chao. Might even come with microchips or in your plastic toys. Nothing from China CAN BE TRUSTED. Did you know also that Hitlery is a paid board member of China’s Walmart. See “Trump puts them in the DOGHOUSE” by American Intelligence Media for some very interesting news on this and more. /watch?v=Au5idOpjU34

    I have not met one woman—not one—in New Mexico who was not on some sort of drug.

    My thanks goes out to Mr. Rappoport for this article ,this is a very underplayed issue in our society and needs to be brought to the forefront of the news rather than this B.S. witch hunt the mainstream keeps covering in the white house. Bottom line: Big pharma do not want to cure disease they would rather string people along with multiple treatments to keep the cash coming in, no matter the amount of long term damage done to the patient. For example: When my 90 year old grandmother passed away we were clearing out her home and I discovered she was prescribed multiple medications. I counted in total almost 10 pills a day! Which included 3 different anti-depressants and 2 pain killers per day coupled with others! This makes me sooo sick to think about how the world lets the mighty dollar dictate our ethical & moral fabric. Our medical industry needs a to be turned on its head as well as many other aspects of our national and local power structure. . In my opinion we need more natural / holistic cures and not these synthetic money making treatments!!

    Hallucinogenic drug found in ‘magic mushrooms’ eases depression, anxiety in people with life-threatening cancer Vanessa McMains / Published Dec 1, 2016 In a small double-blind study, Johns Hopkins researchers report that a substantial majority of people suffering cancer-related anxiety or depression found considerable relief for up to six months from a single large dose of psilocybin—the active compound in hallucinogenic “magic mushrooms.” Six months after the final session of treatment, about 80% of participants continued to show clinically significant decreases in depressed mood and anxiety, with about 60% showing symptom remission into the normal range. The Johns Hopkins team released its study results, involving 51 adult patients, concurrently with researchers from New York University Langone Medical Center, who conducted a similarly designed study on 29 participants. Both studies are published today in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. The researchers cautioned that the drug was given in tightly controlled conditions in the presence of two clinically trained monitors and said they do not recommend use of the compound outside of such a research or patient care setting. The Johns Hopkins group reported that psilocybin decreased clinician- and patient-rated depressed mood, anxiety, and death anxiety. The compound increased quality of life, life meaning, and optimism. Six months after the final session of treatment: About 80% of participants continued to show clinically significant decreases in depressed mood and anxiety, with about 60% showing symptom remission into the normal range 83% reported increases in well-being or life satisfaction 67% of participants reported the experience as one of the top five meaningful experiences in their lives About 70% reported the experience as one of their top five spiritually significant lifetime events “The most interesting and remarkable finding is that a single dose of psilocybin, which lasts four to six hours, produced enduring decreases in depression and anxiety symptoms, and this may represent a fascinating new model for treating some psychiatric conditions,” says Roland Griffiths, professor of behavioral biology in the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Also see Hallucinogen eases depression in cancer patients, study finds / The New York Times Psychedelics reduce anxiety, depression in patients, study finds / The Baltimore Sun Griffiths notes that traditional psychotherapy offered to people with cancer, including behavioral therapy and antidepressants, can take weeks or even months, aren’t always effective, and in the case of some drugs, such as benzodiazepines, may have addictive and other troubling side effects. For the study, the investigators recruited 51 participants diagnosed with life-threatening cancers, most of which were recurrent or metastatic. Each participant had two treatment sessions scheduled five weeks apart, one with a psilocybin dose too low to produce effects taken in a capsule and meant to act as a “control” placebo. In the other session, participants received a capsule with what is considered a moderate or high dose. The researchers assessed each participant’s mood, attitude about life, behaviors, and spirituality with questionnaires and structured interviews before the first session, seven hours after taking the psilocybin, five weeks after each session, and six months after the second session. Immediately after the sessions, participants completed questionnaires assessing changes in visual, auditory, and body perceptions; feelings of transcendence; changes in mood; and more. “Before beginning the study, it wasn’t clear to me that this treatment would be helpful, since cancer patients may experience profound hopelessness in response to their diagnosis, which is often followed by multiple surgeries and prolonged chemotherapy,” Griffiths says. “I could imagine that cancer patients would receive psilocybin, look into the existential void and come out even more fearful. However, the positive changes in attitudes, moods, and behavior that we documented in healthy volunteers were replicated in cancer patients.” Read more from Johns Hopkins Medicine

      Careful observation will lead to the conclusion that psychiatric drugs increases in derangement, therefore mental depression should be treated with safe, only natural therapies.

  10. Brian says:

    “The Johns Hopkins experiment shows—proves—that under controlled, experimental conditions, psilocybin can occasion genuine mystical experiences. It uses science, which modernity trusts, to undermine modernity’s secularism. In doing so, it offers hope of nothing less than a re-sacralization of the natural and social world, a spiritual revival that is our best defense against not only soulessness, but against religious fanaticism. And it does so in the very teeth of the unscientific prejudices built into our current drug laws.”

    In the United States, there are one million children under the age of
    six on psychiatric drugs. This number is particularly disturbing,
    considering the horrifying side effects and ineffectiveness of a good
    number of these types of harmful drugs.

    One in six Americans overall regularly take some type of medication
    in this category. However, children are now being swept up in Big
    Pharma’s desire to make money, not improve health. Mental health
    watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights is
    drawing attention to the concerning fact that more than a million kids
    younger than six in our nation are currently taking these psychiatric

    According to Natural News, around half of these children are four to five years old and an incredible 274,804 of them are younger than a year old. That’s right: babies are being given psychiatric drugs. The number rises for toddlers aged two to three, with 370,778 kids in this category taking psychiatric drugs overall. If this isn’t horrifying to
    you, congratulations on your brainwashing.

    Data from IMS Health shows that the drug situation only gets worse as kids get older, with 4,130,340 kids aged 6 to 12 taking some type of psychiatric drug.

    You might be forgiven for assuming that most of these
    statistics are made up by kids taking ADHD drugs given how common that
    approach seems to be nowadays, but it really only accounts for a small
    portion of it, with 1,422 of those younger than a year old and just over
    181,000 of those aged four to five taking ADHD drugs. –Natural News

    When the soul is restricted from being free due to excessive laws and rules the soul begins to rebel.True freedom on this planet is a lie and the soul knows this and seeks another way to free itself.When true freedom comes forth there will be no need for any kind of chemical to alleviate the bondage people are living in now.

    I tried Pamelor or Nortriptyline once as a teen and it was the worst shit ever. When I told the shrink that the cannabis made me feel a whole lot better than some pill…she threw me out and said never come back.
    That was a great turning point or milestone and things have only gotten better ever since.
    The good doctors who love me so much when I have the state funded coverage don’t care one bit that one hit of cannabis indica will destroy a migraine.
    I’m not even mad at them and the cut ($$$) they get from big pharma.
    I’m here long after they clock out so I’ll decide what gets put into my system.
    Sorry for rambling on, I just needed somewhere to get that off my chest.

    Reblogged this on Awaken Lifeform and commented:
    Here you see what Einstein pointed for, you cannot solve a problem with the same mindset that created the problem. Huge parts of society like to be dulled down, because they see their 3D experience as too huge. They like to fade most of it out, using these chemicals, taste fluorides what did the same. At all this turns into a decline of culture, an old scheme if people in power like to rule a servant dumbed down population for purpose. One thought about this: You never want to have your enlightened consciousness dulled and limited down.
