Peter Breggin quote

“If you assume that every child is sensitive, vulnerable, readily injured and easily broken, then you will never be far from the truth. If you assume that all children are motivated by pride and justice, you will be able to communicate with them. If you assume that all children should be treated as sacred trusts who deserve your full measure of devotion, you will be on the right path. If you seek to find the vulnerable, precious child in yourself and in all other adults at all times in your dealings with yourself and others, you will have achieved enlightenment. You will become a gift to the children in your life to whatever degree that you remain enlightened in your dealings with them.”
from Reclaiming Our Children by Peter Breggin, M.D. (p. 110)

Depression and Environmental Toxins

Depression and Environmental Toxins

Years ago I read this book by Sydney Walker Jr.  Called 'A Dose Of Sanity'. Great book.  One of the basic ideas in the book was that he, as a doctor, could always find what physical problems the person was having that was causing the mental issues - IF given enough time.

He found patients with brain tumours to allergies that had, everyone, been prescribed mood altering drugs such as Prozac, Ritalin and Zoloft.  Once the 'physical' situation was resolved - no more drugs.

Some recently sent me this website about mould(mold) - a real hidden toxin.  Very difficult to get away from. Most of the time people don't even know it is there.

There is a lot more information on the website

Psychiatric Labelling

Psychiatric Labelling

I don't agree with everything in this article.  It is well researched and from the psychiatric industry itself, suggesting that materials such as the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (The go to manual of Psychiatry) should be abolished.  The article also points out there are not physical tests for any of the 'diseases' listed in this and other manuals of the like.

No More Psychiatric Labels


This article argues that psychiatric diagnoses are not valid or useful. The use of psychiatric diagnosis increases stigma, does not aid treatment decisions, is associated with worsening long-term prognosis for mental health problems,


The failure of decades of basic science research to reveal any specific biological or psychological marker that identifies a psychiatric diagnosis is well recognized.

5 Causes for Depression

5 Causes for Depression

As much as the medical industry would like you to think otherwise, there is not physical/biological test for depression. Most tests are done by doctors or psychiatrists that ask a series of questions. They are trying to determine if one has clinical depression.

Definition of Clinical Depression:

Clinical depression is the more severe form of depression, also known as major depression or major depressive disorder. It isn't the same as depression caused by a loss, such as the death of a loved one, or a medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder.”

The issue here is that this is all subjective.  It is all in the opinion of the doctor or psychiatrist.  The huge majority of psychiatrists will not do physical tests as they are not actually looking for the CAUSE of depression.  They are looking to summate symptoms.

Most doctors have the know how to actually ascertain the cause but don’t willingly take the time.

From an article by Fred Ovsiew in the Psychiatric Times:

“Psychiatric patients commonly suffer from general medical conditions; often these conditions affect or even produce the mental disorder. In formulating the psychopathologic condition and identifying its cause, why would one want to forgo tools that generations of physicians have found useful in the diagnostic endeavor?”

  1. Sugar and Depression

Sugar has been long known as a big contributor to depression.  It spikes then crashes your insulin levels.  Watch children race around at the end of a birthday party when they have had the cake, then crash violently later.  Have a bunch of sugar for lunch and try and stay awake and alert in the middle of the afternoon.  The website has a good article on that here: Depression and Sugar 

2. Allergies and Depression

It  has been known for years that allergies are linked to depression.  Any number of books and articles connecting the two.  Besides affecting sleep and general function there are other chemical reactions that also affect one at a biological level.  Allergies have been connected to numerous other mental disorders as well.  Great article here on : Depression and Allergies

3. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and Depression

MSG is rampant.  Is has many names and that is the subject of someone else’s article.  There is a lot of evidence how it can affect ones mood.  MSG should absolutely NOT be given to growing children or teens.  This is a very scientific article on the subject but if you can wade through the technical gobbledygook you will see the dangers.  Even adults can have mild to severe reactions to Monosodium glutamate.  This food ingredient is almost impossible to stay away from if you are eating packaged goods. It is there to enhance the flavour and most packaged goods have the flavors pretty much processed out of them.  Also, most restaurant foods, particularly fast foods will contain MSG.  Again, the warning about the technical jargon: Depression

4.  Soda, Pop, Soft Drinks and Depression

High Fructose Corn Syrup has replaced sugar in a lot of instances or is often used in conjunction with sugar in non-diet soft drinks.  Both diet and non-diet soft drinks have been consistently linked to obesity but here is a study that directly correlates fructose to depression.   If you do the research, you will find that High Fructose Corn Syrup is actually worse for you than sugar.  It spikes the insulin levels in ones body even worse than sugar.  So, this can cause depression in both a direct and indirect manner.  Directly by the insulin ‘crash’ and indirectly by the numerous side and other effects of obesity and other health problems.  So, if you don’t want your children or teens getting depressed or overweight then don’t give them soda or packaged breakfast cereals.

5. TV, Radio, Newspaper News and Depression

Some years ago, a friend was at a clients house and found her to be terribly depressed.  On questioning her, he found that she started and finished every day watching the News on television and would also read the newspaper and listen to the news on the radio throughout the day.  He challenged her to stop all this for a period  of six to eight weeks.  She agreed.  In only eight days she called him and said that her outlook on life had completely changed.  She was happy and didn’t get down or depressed easily at all.  She was more than a little amazed at how simple this was.  This was slightly before the advent of Facebook.  I challenge anyone that is having trouble and is also reading on Facebook or online or anywhere how absolutely horrible the world is, to STOP!  Take a few weeks - don’t worry, the world won’t end - and completely get rid of the ‘News’ in your life.

6. Television and Depression

There is a direct proven link between watching television and depression.  TV is hypnotic.  It is also putting one at effect instead of getting a person DOING something.  (No, watching TV is not ‘doing something.)  The obvious effects are its contribution to obesity but many people will be surprised to find television’s relationship to Depression.  One may think that watching the boob tube is a way of distracting oneself from troubles or ‘taking a break’.  If you are going to do that, though, keep it to a minimum.  Which is pretty much impossible for most people.  This site: cites several research surveys done by scientists that show without a doubt that watching too much television can increase and actually cause depression. Watching TV

So, you have a choice. You can just take a pill from your doctor and mask some symptoms or you solve it yourself.  In our next article, I will list out the prescription(pharmaceutical) drugs that actually cause depression.

ETC and Teens (Electro-Convulsive Therapy)

ETC and Teens (Electro-Convulsive Therapy)

The proponents of ECT(Electro-Convulsive Shock Therapy) lament that ECT has a poor public image.  Well, I love that part.  In an article on a website called Mescape, a Dr. Puffer of the Mayo Clinic is quoted: "The findings also suggest that while ECT improves outcomes, it is not a cure.”

First of all, of course they don’t have a cure and they(Psychiatric Industry) admits that none of their treatments are cures.  What then are they trying to do?  There are no biological tests for their so called illnesses that supposedly result from odd brain chemistry.  Depression is a real thing but not knowing the cause,  the treatments are largely to suppress symptoms.   And if the chemical straight jackets don’t work, the next step for them is ECT.  Now if that doesn’t work, will they start promoting lobotomies and leucotomies as a final solution or maybe euthanasia…?  If one is all about treating symptoms what would be the problem taking things this far.

Electric shock is a known torture technique.  If someone from a different country was using this type of ‘treatment’ on US citizens, they would be called terrorists.

"For any group to engage fully and knowingly upon the destruction of the Constitution and any liberty or freedom it may guarantee is less startling than that they should also be accepted as the dominant force behind many politicians.

National Mental Health groups in any country are all members of the World Federation of Mental Health. The former president of the WFMH, the Communist Brock Chisholm, and any and all officers of this group and its 'National' Mental Health members freely confess that they have as a primary target the eradication of their country's Constitution.

In the US this is a criminal offence, to advocate the overthrow of the Constitution. But many unprincipled State and Federal politicians not only turn a blind eye upon this, but also condone illegal seizure, torture and murder of citizens by these groups. Hitler once said that his primary weapon was the “incredible”.  No one would believe what was actually being done by the Saboteur forces of the Third Reich because their plans L ron hubbardwere incredible.

These psychiatric front groups have a very thorough program of Western destruction:

1. Destruction of the Constitution.
2. Eradication of boundaries.
3. Easy seizure of anyone.
4. The 'right' to torture or kill.
5. Eradication of all churches.
6. Destruction of sexual morality.
7. Deprivation of future leaders by the creation of dope addiction in schools."

Lies from Big Pharma, The FDA and psychiatry!

Lies from Big Pharma, The FDA and psychiatry!

Great article on some of the falsehoods propagated by the pharmaceutical industry.  Fourteen myths that we have been told over and over now properly debunked.

Myth # 1: 
“The FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) tests all new psychiatric drugs”

False. Actually the FDA only reviews studies that were designed, administered, secretly performed and paid for by the multinational profit-driven drug companies. The studies are frequently farmed out by the pharmaceutical companies by well-paid research firms, in whose interest it is to find positive results for their corporate employers. Unsurprisingly, such research policies virtually guarantee fraudulent results."
