Psychiatry: A False Science with a True Agenda

Postby Silversong » Thu Jan 29, 2015 2:37 am

Thread from May 3013 at FFD. I always remember the famous quote from Jiddhu Krishnamurti that "It is not a sign of good mental health to be well-adjusted to a sick society". Hence, there is a case for "exogenous" depression.

As I sit here listening to Mozart, I wonder how they left him out? Didn't the movie about his life show him with mental illness, too? Also, Thomas Edison and Dan Akroyd are said to have/ had Asperger's. Einstein may have had ADHD. Maybe some of these should not be officially listed as mental disorders, but they're written up in the medical journals that way. They eventually want EVERYONE on Prozac, don'tcha know?

Unlike diagnoses for medical conditions, psychiatrists do not have blood tests or any other biological tests to ascertain the presence or absence of a mental illness. Psychiatrists rarely conduct thorough physical examinations to rule out medical conditions. – The Citizens Commission on Human Rights
.
The question arises: how much of this rise in mental diseases is driven by psychiatry and pharmaceutical industries? How many diagnoses are just people experiencing normal human emotions – yes, negative or unpleasant emotions, but distinctly human nevertheless.

The following video is a fairly lengthy but thorough documentary about psychotropic drugs and the for-profit industry behind psychiatry. It describes the myth of the tag “chemical imbalance” used to diagnose psychiatric diseases without any physical tests. It examines the role that the FDA has taken in speeding up the drug approval process. The video also examines the big business of psychotropic drugs, reporting that top prescription drugs generate revenues between $7 to $11 million per day for each major drug. It reveals how pharmaceutical companies market the same exact drugs under different names, for different psychotropic and physical conditions.

Many of us have taken psychotropic drugs at one point or another, and if you have not, it is likely that you know of at least a couple of people that take psychotropics on a regular basis. Yet, there are other solutions, methods, approaches, that have been proven to help with mental ailments. Eating a healthy diet made up of raw and natural foods. Turning to ancient practices such as meditation or yoga. Individual or group counseling. Lifestyle changes. Acupuncture. The list goes on. Perhaps a pill is not necessarily the answer.

MENTAL DISORDERS DO NOT EXIST

Objectively speaking, mental illnesses and disorders do not exist.

Officially, all mental disorders are said to be chemical imbalances in the brain. Not just any imbalances, but specific ones. This assertion is unproven. There is no evidence for it.

For example, for any of the 297 so-called mental disorders listed in the official publication of the American Psychiatric Association, there are no defining physical tests. No blood tests, no urine tests, no saliva tests, no laboratory tests of any kind. This is a fact.

Since it is a fact, it is odd that all psychiatrists are medical doctors. What are they doing that is medical?

I decided long ago that the higher their 'degree', the more dangerous they are.

Psychiatrists Under Fire from Psychologists

There is no scientific evidence that psychiatric diagnoses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are valid or useful, according to the leading body representing Britain's clinical psychologists.

In a groundbreaking move that has already prompted a fierce backlash from psychiatrists, the British Psychological Society's division of clinical psychology (DCP) will on Monday issue a statement declaring that, given the lack of evidence, it is time for a "paradigm shift" in how the issues of mental health are understood. The statement effectively casts doubt on psychiatry's predominantly biomedical model of mental distress – the idea that people are suffering from illnesses that are treatable by doctors using drugs. The DCP said its decision to speak out "reflects fundamental concerns about the development, personal impact and core assumptions of the (diagnosis) systems", used by psychiatry.

Dr Lucy Johnstone, a consultant clinical psychologist who helped draw up the DCP's statement, said it was unhelpful to see mental health issues as illnesses with biological causes.

"On the contrary, there is now overwhelming evidence that people break down as a result of a complex mix of social and psychological circumstances – bereavement and loss, poverty and discrimination, trauma and abuse," Johnstone said. The provocative statement by the DCP has been timed to come out shortly before the release of DSM-5, the fifth edition of the American Psychiatry Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Oregon psychiatrist booby-trapped bike trails to purposely injure riders
An Oregon psychiatrist who deliberately sabotaged mountain biking trails near his home in Ashland has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and is now prohibited from using National Forest trails for at least two years, according to new reports. In an ironic role reversal, 57-year-old Jackson Tyler Dempsey pleaded guilty to committing the types of bizarre acts one would expect from his former mental patients, which included running nylon ropes across biking trails for the purpose of harming mountain bikers, and leaving nails and other forest debris on bike paths.

The Rebel Against the Controlled World

“Is there a normal state of mind? The answer is no. There is the ability to deal with the reality of the world, which is a very important skill. But state of mind is another matter entirely. You could have a million people who can deal with the world, and they’re all operating in different states of mind. There is no ‘normal’. ‘Normal’ is a modern myth that has no benefits—except to the people who invented it and control it. If you can control ‘normal’ and disseminate it broadly, slip it into consciousness, you have power. It’s like one of those steamrollers. You flatten people.”

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

Definitely NOT the same as the view in the Western world!

Free Thinking Is Now Considered A Mental Illness

“What happens to a society when thinking outside of the box or being righteously enraged about your government going in the wrong direction becomes an excuse to be sedated and re-educated? It seems we don’t have to go too far back in history to find out.

“The Soviet Union used new mental illness for political repression. People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Party developed a new type of schizophrenia. They suffered from the delusion of believing communism was wrong. They were isolated, forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bring them back to sanity.

“Now thanks to thought policing by the American Psychiatric Association the latest addition of the DSM-IV(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is setting up the dominoes for arbitrary diagnosis of any dissenting individuals.

“Listed as new mental illnesses are above-average creativity and cynicism. The manual goes on to identify a mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.
“Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

“A Washington Post article observed that, if Mozart were born today, he would be diagnosed with ADD and “medicated into barren normality.” What used to be known as personality traits are now diseases, and of course there are treatments available.”

A Whole Branch of Science Turns Out to Be Fake -- Psychiatry!

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015 ... o-be-fake/
An open secret has been slowly 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.”...

Under the radar, one of the great psychiatric stars, who has been out in front in inventing mental disorders, went public. He blew the whistle on himself and his colleagues. And for several 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.
