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.

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder – A Joke?

I have always thought that the characteristics that defined Attention Deficit Disorder was pretty much the same definition that one would make for an active, healthy, young boy.  This is the most recent attention deficit hyperactivity disorderincarnation of the description of ADHD that give psychiatrists and doctors an excuse to drug out children.  More often than not it is the parent’s or teacher’s intolerance and impatience than anything that the child is doing wrong.

Maryanne Godbolbo is winning against the pshychiatric terrorists

Here is one where the psychiatrists and the police state did not win.  Several months ago Maryanne Godbolbo tried to keep her daughter from forcibly being taken by child care services in Detroit (they had no legal right to take her daughter).  The police forcibly entered her home and took her daughter.  The case is still ongoing but the judge has kept the state from giving the daughter more drugs as she was doing better without and is having her released to her father.

Child Abuse Facts

“Malicious” use of drugs an under-recognized form of child abuse

By Laura Stone, Postmedia News

“The “malicious” use of pharmaceuticals on children is an under-recognized form of child abuse, according to a study released on July 22.

New research that analyzes information from the U.S. National Poison Centre Data System from the past decade shows a small but steady number of children, median age two, who were found to have been exposed to at least one sedating agent, including street drugs, antipsychotics, cough medicines, and ethanol.

“It’s an aspect of child abuse that is not often considered,” said Dr. Shan Yin, a pediatrician at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and author of the study published in The Journal of Pediatrics.

“I think this is going on, probably throughout the country, and we’re not paying attention to it.”

The study looked at cases from 2000 to 2008, involving pharmaceutical exposure to children under seven years old, for which the reason was coded as “malicious” by poison centre standards.”

Ritalin Abuse, Side Effects and young children

“In the same year, the Washington Post published the fact that Ritalin which is prescribed to very young children had never been tested on that age group (under 6’s) and yet, between 150,000 – 200,000 children between the ages of 2 and 4 were prescribed Ritalin.”

~ Hilary Butler letter to British Medical Journal 2004

Fact:  Ritalin is a Schedule II Substance, which means Ritalin has a “high potential for abuse” that “may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence,” and the federal government sets limits on the amount of these amphetamine drugs that may be manufactured each year.

There isn’t enough blog post room here to list ALL of the side effects of Ritalin.  Visit  http://ritalinsideeffects.net/ to see the full list.

Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy – they don’t do that anymore, do they?

You remember that movie, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”?  Do they still do ECT therapy?  Ask around.  People will say to you, “No, they give people medication now.”  Nope.

Stop Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy

In Canada, 130 hospitals give ECT.

Statistics for ECTs given yearly are:

· Ontario, Canada – 14,000 (approximate) ECTs given yearly

· USA – 100,000 Americans get ECTs yearly

· Worldwide – estimated to be 1 to 2 million ECTs given yearly.

The side effects of ECT include brain damage, permanent memory loss and even death.  Consider that the elderly are now increasingly the recipients of electroconvulsive shock therapy.

In British Columbia, people 65 years of age and over comprised 44 per cent of the 835 patients receiving ECT in 2001.  The article in the web link shows similar percentages for the other provinces in Canada.

Debates over ECT for the elderly.

Opponents of ECT, like Dr. John Breeding, a Texas psychologist, say the actual death rate among elderly electroshock recipients is closer to one in 200 patients, or 0.5 per cent.

Even the World Health Organization opposes electroconvulsive therapy:

“Although significant controversy surrounds electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and some people believe it should be abolished, it has been and continues to be used in many countries for certain mental disorders. If ECT is used, it should only be administered after obtaining informed consent.

“And it should only be administered in modified form, i.e. with the use of anaesthesia and muscle relaxants. The practice of using unmodified ECT should be stopped.

“There are no indications for the use of ECT on minors, and hence this should be prohibited through legislation.”
