I don't doubt people suffer from real mental illness. It's quite obvious that they do exist and there is a need for medical care. Is a psychotropic
drug the only answer or is it the only option? The doctors either don't care they're too motivated by money to find a cause or a cure. I don't doubt
for a moment that in some cases, drugs may be the only way to manage them but those cases are very small compared to the amount of people that are
taking these pills for very minor things.
The point of this video is to show that if you classify as a human being, you are a potential customer and the way the system is set up and run, you
probably can (and will, if you allow yourself to be tested) be diagnosed with some kind of "disorder" and then qualify for a drug. After watching
the video and then doing a bit of side research last night, I am depressed and have social anxiety disorder. Probably a few more that I had in the
past, like postpartum depression, seasonal depression and who knows what else. I don't sleep very well at night, so I'm sure I'd get a pill for that,
too. In a matter of a few minutes in a doctor's office, if I told them these things, I would be walking away with a few prescriptions and probably
be told I'd have to come back monthly for refills.
The absolute fraud going on in the industry is unreal. It's blatant! Prestigious medical journals, for which all doctors look towards for
guidance, are funded by pharmaceutical companies through giant multi-page high-gloss advertisements. Articles published in these journals are being
ghostwritten by pharma-paid writers and then influential doctors are paid to sign them. The mandatory continuing education seminars the doctors are
required to go to--same thing--funded by pharma and lectured by paid pharmaceutical shills. It's absolute insanity.
This doesn't just happen with psychotropic drugs, though. My husband was told he had high blood pressure and instantly prescribed a pill and was told
he would need to take it the rest of his life. She didn't tell him to look at his diet or tell him he needed to lose weight, which is what needed to
be done. He took the medication for a bit, then started getting some side effects from it. The doc then prescribed him two more meds to counteract
those side effects. After a few months of this and experiencing even more side effects, he said enough was enough and he chose not to take the pills
and instead changed his diet and threw in some exercise. Imagine that--he no longer has high blood pressure. Everyone is out for a quick fix, to
find the magic pill that will cure their ailments instead of getting off their duff and fixing the issue themselves. The doctors only encourage the
pill-pushing and have no interest in cures or alternative lifestyle changes.
And, as an end note to this, there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to dope up a small child (or really any child under 18) with these psychotic poisons. The
doctors that prescribe them should lose their licenses and the parents who fill the prescriptions and make their children take them shouldn't be
allowed to be parents. Unfortunately, I know too many parents who's kids are doped up on something, mostly ADD and bipolar. Does it make them feel
special or something?
I had this conversation with my mom a few weeks ago, wondering why every other mother I talk to in my neighborhood has
their kids on something. What is so wrong with their kids? What is so wrong with them that makes them think something is wrong with their kids? I
have 5 kids ages 8 through 22 and none of them ever had "mental illnesses." They're not special, they're kids. Maybe because I'm not on any drugs
and all my facilities are in good working order that I can see what's going on. I didn't need to watch this video but it sure did put everything
together very nicely.
