I have to chuckle when medical articles and mainstream media suggest that CAMs (Complementary or Alternative Medicine) or any non-conventional treatments are not supported by ‘scientific’ evidence.  It would seem the odds of having or recovering good health are far better with alternative medical treatments.

The legitimate scientific evidence about conventional cancer treatments shows that they are practically useless, that chemotherapy causes issues such as massive bone loss, permanent sexual dysfunction etc. and that radiation typically results in later onset of more cancer and further, that the rates of cancer survival have not changed in 60 years, although cancer rates have exploded.  And this is if you get a correct diagnosis in the first place. 

The legitimate scientific evidence about so-called mental illness is even more damning in terms of the  claims made on the effectiveness and safety of psychiatric treatments and drugs.  There is abundant evidence since 1970, both experiential and scientific, that mental illness does not exist, there is no chemical, physical or genetic abnormality of the brain to account for unwanted emotional crises and that drug-induced abnormality occurs only after psychiatric drug treatment and at alarming rates.  In addition, psychiatric drugs are linked with violence, suicide and homicide to such a degree that regulatory agencies all over the world issue ‘warnings’, though they still allow the unrestricted marketing and prescription of the products.  Studies have also proven that all psychiatric diagnoses are without any scientific validity, existing only because psychiatrists voted  them into existence.

Supposedly there is scientific ‘support’ for conventional treatments, but as Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, clarifies about that aspect of the scandal:  “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”(Marcia Angell, MD, The New York Review of Books, January 15, 2009).

I personally  lost two younger brothers to the conventional treatment for leukemia.  I survived, opting for treatment by a medical naturopath who uses only homeopathic, herbal and dietary approaches.  I never missed a beat and was well within 3 months of learning of my situation.  In addition, German New Medicine has conclusively proven over 20 years of studies that at least 13 cancers will resolve with a change of lifestyle and diet alone.

Tens of thousands of people annually obtain drug-free, effective hypnotherapy assistance to resolve emotional issues safely.  Qualified hypnotherapists can effectively assist clients to resolve anger, anxiety, depression, grief, obsessive-compulsive behaviors and fears of all kinds.

Medical science has been prostituted…it’s every man, woman and child for themselves and tens of millions of people have moved to alternatives as a result.  As a wise neighbor once said, the odds cannot be worse with alternatives then they are with conventional treatments. 

Fear-mongering by Big Pharma has driven us, like frightened sheep, to slash and burn treatments that leave most patients’ lives and bodies decimated.  It is time to stop fearing cancer and mental illness, regard them as a signal that something has to change and then make the dietary and lifestyle changes needed to support health.  The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs…excellent nutrition, reasonable exercise, abundant love, respectful care and relentless commitment.

It is easy to deceive anyone who is not expecting to be deceived, especially if they have been conditioned since childhood to trust their doctors and Health Canada ( or the FDA).  As a result, every 14 minutes prescription drugs kill a patient!

Widespread Big Pharma practices that ensure patients and doctors don’t learn about the true dangers of prescription drugs are staggering in their level of deceit.

Not only are drug company clinical trials conducted over a mere 2-6 weeks with selected participants who do not remotely reflect the usual patient population, but many clinical trials are ended early because of severe drug reactions, including death. These results are hidden away in drug company vaults until a lawsuit forces their release…but by then it is very much too late. We are not hearing the truth about these drugs from Health Canada or our doctors; we are hearing it from lawyers and victims.

Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, clarifies that aspect of the scandal:  “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”(Marcia Angell, MD, The New York Review of Books, January 15, 2009)

Terence Young, a Canadian Member of Parliament, author of Death by Prescription, lost a child to a prescription drug adverse effect.  Since then he has been investigating how drugs are approved and monitored and is advocating for changes in the ‘wild-west’ way the medical-pharmaceutical cartel is permitted to operate in Canada.  He testified during a Canadian Senate Standing Committee Hearing (Oct 2012) on the Post-approval monitoring of prescription drugs (see testimony mid-way in video)   that in very recent years, 27 drugs that were supposed to be safe were taken off the market, but as in the case of Vioxx, which killed some 65,000 before being pulled, not until many had been maimed or killed.

As Young pointed out, adverse drug reaction information is buried in linguistic acrobatics in medication pamphlets and medical ghostwriting.  But the bigger problem with the system is that drugs can be fast-tracked to market on the say-so of the drug company, without testing and without proper safety measures in place.  In fact, Health Canada does no independent testing and maintains no adverse reaction database.  Talk about the fox guarding the hen-house!

There is no post-approval monitoring of drugs, no national database for the reporting of adverse effects by the public and if/when doctors decide to report adverse effects to the drug companies, the drug companies are free to downgrade the effect…so that suicide attempt could be classed as aggression or depression.  Most times doctors dismiss adverse effects as being the result of the issue being treated!

As Dr. Healy, CEO and principal founder of Data Based Medicine Americas Ltd stated: “It is important to distinguish between suicide and death by misadventure. Suicide is the deliberate termination of one’s existence while in one’s right mind. Taking one’s own life under the influence of drugs is death by misadventure, not suicide. This distinction has huge legal, financial, insurance, and religious implications, as well as being of great importance to family and friends.”

As Young noted, in Canada death by adverse  pharmaceutical drug reaction  is too often listed on a coroner’s report as ‘death by natural causes’.  Adverse reactions due to pharmaceutical drugs alone cause 10,000 Canadian deaths each year and 150,000 injuries, but as Janet Currie, Director of Psychiatric Medication Awareness Group testified at the same Senate Standing Committee Hearing, these figures represent a very small portion of the actual damage incurred.  Most are not being reported to, or addressed by, Health Canada, the very agency we are conditioned to believe is on guard for us.

Off-Label Prescribing

Another major problem noted by Young and Currie was the profoundly unsafe practices of off-label prescribing by doctors, as this practice accounts for 5-20% of prescribing practices in North America.  Particularly troubling are doctor claims that they do not have the time to actually look into drug company claims of safety and efficacy…they just follow drug company dictates.

Off-label prescribing happens when a doctor gives you a drug that Health Canada has has not approved to treat the condition you complain of. This practice is legal and common, thus even toddlers are getting drugs never tested on children and never approved for use in children.  Besides begging the question “Why bother with Health Canada or the approval of any drugs at all?” we can also ask “Are off-label drugs safe?”.  

It’s hard to see how they can be safe, since most drugs have side-effects that cause problems beyond the original issue a patient sought help with.  Bottom-line, it seems that because of the fact that Health Canada does not do any of its own testing, relies entirely on drug company claims, does not monitor drugs after approval including those fast-tracked, that fast-tracked medications do not have any scrutiny before or after being marketed and that a drug can be prescribed at will by any physician for any reason and without explanation if something goes wrong, it is quite safe to say that anytime you put any pharmaceutical medication into your body you are playing a game with worse odds then Russian Roulette.

Drug Company Free-For-All

As a result of what seems to be a free-for-all prescription drug system with no safety precautions in place and what appears to be an absence of monitoring or consequences (except to the patient) for the drug companies and doctors who prescribed these medications, the fact is also that psychiatric drugs, heart medications and antibiotics are commonly prescribed off label.  Thus antibiotics are prescribed for viral infections even though they are designed to destroy bacteria only, and also, more often then not, when neither a bacterial nor a viral infection can be ascertained. Typically drugs are prescribed without any attempt to try natural remedies and therapies and/or dietary and lifestyle changes first, to the serious detriment of the patient who is looking for good health.

It’s not uncommon for depression medications to be used to treat chronic pain.  But what about the addictiveness and brain disabling effects of the antidepressants?  Well, the fact is that those little bits of information are not provided to patients even when the risks overwhelmingly outweigh the benefits and even when there are many natural alternatives for chronic pain.  In fact, hypnotherapy, self-hypnosis and meditation have been shown to be very effective in resolving chronic pain issues.

Study after study is showing alarming issues with vaccines and antibiotics.  Ethical doctors everywhere are urging people not to vaccinate themselves or their children and to use antibiotics ONLY in emergency situations.  Studies are repeatedly showing that statin drugs  cause adverse effects including muscle deterioration and are rarely as effective in controlling blood pressures as natural therapies that address lifestyle and dietary factors.  Let’s remember that the heart is a muscle!  Worse yet, anti-cholesterol drugs are shown to be linked to cardiac issues, increased risk of diabetes and memory loss …for starters.

The US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) studies have shown that some newer antipsychotic drugs typically used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorders are also prescribed for depression, dementia, and other conditions despite there being no evidence that these drugs work. As revealed in the January 14, 2009 AHRQ study “Use of Atypical Antipsychotic Drugs Increases Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death in Adults“, they increase the risk of cardiac death.

These facts are even more disturbing when we learn (Medication Madness by Dr. P. Breggin and others) that depression and schizophrenia sufferers do not have chemical imbalances  and can usually resolve their conditions very well within 6 months to 1 year with few, if any, relapses when the patient IS NOT medicated.  Once medicated, these issues worsen, become chronic, severe and irreversible.  The fairytale that any of these drugs are ‘helpful’ in the long-run is actually a tale of willful harm for profits, well documented by ethical doctors and scientists since 1970.

That relapse rates increase as a direct result of psychiatric drug intervention, that drug therapy in seniors seriously increases suicide rates, that drugs actually cause depression and drug therapy increases the rates of stroke is never discussed by doctors or mainstream media.  This is astounding considering the many studies showing the absolute ineffectiveness of antidepressant drugs and the increased cancer risk associated with their use. 

Psychiatric and pain management drugs are now the gateway drugs to illicit drug use and in fact facilitate the addiction to drugs with alarming ease. Most patients are not told these drugs are highly addictive and when the doctor is confronted later, typically there continues to be denial.  Doctors are not trained in the safe withdrawal of a patient from an addictive drug, thus patients find themselves trying to navigate a withdrawal mine-field alone.

With the newer psychiatric drugs, we are seeing epidemics of drug-induced bipolar, cardiovascular, kidney, pancreatic and liver issues.  These were rare in adults, almost unheard of in children…now psychiatric drugs have helped create an epidemic of drug-induced chronic physical illnesses.

The medicalization of non-diseases such as emotional reactions and everyday life experiences harms both the individuals so labeled and society’s fabric. The problem is that the treatments are causing epidemics of chronic diseases such as diabetes in addition to medication madness.

You can add to that the new drug-pushing habit of convincing people, through equally unsupported claims of ‘genetic’ links to illness, to undergo unnecessary surgery and ingest damaging drugs.

I follow many independent health information sources, but one of my favorites is Mike Adams’ NaturalNews.com. It’s free to sign up and rarely is there not very important and current health information that affects everyone.  He particularly keeps readers informed about pharmaceutical fraud, unethical scientists and collusion between government agencies tasked with keeping people safe, but who he feels (and shows) have lost all credability.

In fact, it is not hard to come away from reading his articles on  vaccination frauds perpetrated on the public by slick pharmaceutical marketing and the coopting of unethical scientists and medical doctors with the clear message that it’s every man, woman and child for themselves.

With the bad news about how we are constantly and systematically being deceived, especially in the area of psychiatric drugging of adults and children at alarming rates, the violence-psychiatric drug links and the antibiotic and vaccination scams, he provides lots of healthy alternatives in every area of wellness.

Contributors to NaturalNews.com, WDDTY.com and hundreds of ethical doctors and scientists are warning of the soft-kill, de-population agenda of the elite, headed by the Rockefeller Foundation since in 1930.

Apparently the elite have set in motion a plan to reduce the population of 7 billion down to 1 billion!  See http://www.infowars.com/for-the-record-rockefeller-soft-kill-depopulation-plan-exposed and http://www.naturalnews.com/036756_depopulation_agenda_eugenics_survivor.html

Bill Gates lists vaccines, GMO foods and medications as the best ways to quickly reduce the world’s population.  See mid-way in the video at http://www.naturalnews.com/034834_Bill_Gates_sperm_infertility.html . The suppliers of these soft-kill ingredients are none other than the same bunch that facilitated the Nazis horrors:  I.G.Farben parent company of Monsanto, BASF, DuPont and Bayer of Aspirin fame (who built and ran Auschwitz).

At https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-X3sJKtVJE Ted Turner explains that the world’s population should be reduced by 70% to result in a young, educated, well-heeled and compliant homogeneous race of people governed as a one-nation world. 

The old, poor, uneducated, disadvantaged, indigent, non-white and non-compliant must go.  The Rockefeller Foundation had this to say “The unchecked fertility of the indigent does much to perpetuate poverty, under-education, and underemployment, not only in urban slums, but also in depressed rural areas.

They’ve executed their soft-kill plan with military precision:  people are unwittingly shortening their lives 15-25 years thanks to psychiatric drugs, which are now the leading cause of addictions in North America.  (Anatomy of an Epidemic,  Emperor’s New Drugs).

Since GMO crops have overrun 80-90% of the world, we have more people starving then ever (View: The World According to Monsanto), epidemics of new super-diseases such as Morgellon’s and we endure never-before-known cancers in epidemic proportions.  GMO wheat is addictive and linked to epidemics of diabetes and obesity (Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD).  Monsanto’s aspartame and other artificial sweeteners have repeatedly been linked to brain tumors and their GMO sugar beets worsen the addictive, neuro-toxic effects of sugar.

The Rockefeller Foundation found that gossypol, a toxic polyphenol derived from the cotton plant, was an effective sterilant and there are reports Monsanto has been integrating it into GMO crops.  The rate of Canadian infertility has tripled since 1982 (National Post report, Feb 15, 2012).

The elderly are overprescribed damaging drugs and in North America alone, some 10 million school children are force-fed addictive, brain-damaging psychiatric drugs to keep them quiet. (Commonsense Rebellion, Bruce Levine).

Wondering how only getting rid of the old, the troublesome, the uneducated and the poor is going to reduce the population when people can still have kids to replace the culled? 

We are learning that conventional cancer treatments are not only ineffective and in most cases unnecessary (see German New Medicine studies), but that they cause sterility.  One of the ‘side effects’ of psychiatric drugs is low to non-existent libido in adults and the brain damage kids suffer from psychoactive drugs can ruin their whole life.

Rockefeller Foundation admitted funding and developing anti-fertility vaccines intended for “mass-scale distribution” (Jurriaan Maessen Infowars.com March 26, 2012).  These can be hidden in ‘regular’ anti-viral vaccines at will.

Misleading advertising, drug company collusion with unethical doctors and scientists, mass rigging of clinical trials, controlled mainstream media, Ivy League university leadership and promotion and fear-mongering about every little virus on the planet has caused us to run to killer vaccines and antibiotics.  The over-prescription of antibiotics, especially to children, has caused mutant super-bugs, epidemics of previously rarely known problems in children, franken-bacteria such as the flesh-eating variety and life-ending immune system issues.

As reported in Natural News Aug 2012:  Importantly, vaccines contain stealth cancer viruses that are passed along through multiple generations. The SV40 viruses introduced to the population through polio vaccines in the 1950’s still exists today in the grandchildren of those who were first vaccinated. This is openly admitted by top scientists who helped develop these vaccines. http://www.naturalnews.com/033584_Dr_Maurice_Hilleman_SV40.html

Iatrogenic disease, defined as disease or death caused by medical treatment, is the leading cause of death in North America!   Any surprise there?

 What to do? 

First, heed the warnings of ethical doctors and scientists about vaccine damage and chemical medications (psychoactive or otherwise) and request natural treatments, avoid non-organic red meat and pork and any meat that doesn’t have its original bones and skin on (thus avoiding  ‘meat-glue’).  Grow a simple organic vegetable garden and triple filter city water, especially if treated with fluoride, another proven neuro-toxin. 

Avoid non-organic wheat and grains and GMO foods like the plague they are. Support efforts to take back our food supply from Monsanto et al by buying from local organic farmers, support global efforts to force GMO labeling, support child advocacy groups calling for an end to the psychiatric drugging of children and calls to ban psychiatry altogether. Push your MPs and MPPs to do their jobs.

Avoid mainstream TV, especially News, as the content is controlled by the corporations and consumer scientists.  Medical information on mainstream media is almost exclusively pharmaceutical propaganda. Follow NaturalNews.com and other independent news media, such as RT TV.

My primary care giver is a naturopathic medical doctor ; my ‘medicine’ is homeopathic and herbal – if it’s good enough for the British Royal family, it’s certainly good enough for me. I handle stress with Reiki, massage, hypnotherapy and meditation – and good friends. I work at something I love – clinical hypnotherapy.

My work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist allows me to assist people to heal themselves of emotional issues by using drug-free, label-free regression hypnotherapy, so they too can avoid pharmaceutical poisoning.  Natural remedies and treatments and organic foods enhance life; chemicals and drugs, as we are learning the hard way, kills. 

Hypnotherapy provides drug-free assistance with your issues, from insomnia to anxiety, depression, anger, weight and pain management and more.   ~Much spiritual love, Grace

NoDoz_caffeine_tablets_on_blackPsychiatric medications are dangerous and too often deadly.  Studies since 1970 have proven this over and over again.  In fact, the evidence is so clear that the FDA and Health Canada as well as many international regulatory agencies around the world have issued WARNINGS about the increased risk of suicide, homicide, agression, emotional blunting, major depression and psychosis all caused by antidepressant use.  According to years of independent research and review of studies, the use of psyciatric medication to treat any mental illness is almost guaranteed to worsen the issue. ETHICAL DOCTORS WARN PEOPLE TO AVOID PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT ALTOGETHER.

BEFORE you ingest any psychiatric drug, review the over 4,000 incidents of horrific results of antidepressant use between 2008-2011  at  SSRI Stories  .  This site lists only the worse treatment outcomes and represent about 1% of the adverse reactions people experience.  These medications are highly addictive and while the medications cause terrible side-effects while on dose, increasing or decreasing the medication doses quickly can easily result in severely worsening conditions.

To fully understand the brain abnormalities caused by the drug treatment of depression as well as other psychiatric drugs, be sure to read  Medication Madness by Dr. Peter Breggin, an international court-appointed medical expert on the brain-damaging, addictive properties of all psychiatric drugs.   It is no coincidence that of the last 18 rampages in the US alone, 14 killers were reported to have been on psychiatric drugs.  The other 4 cases are presumed to be linked to psychiatric drugs, but the information about their medical treatment has been suppressed.

On TV recently, parents shared the tragic story of their accomplished 17-year old son’s death by recreational drug.  Apparently their ‘talk’ with him about the dangers of non-prescription drugs went unheeded. 

Daily, many hypnotherapy clients tell me of being hooked on their powerful mood-altering prescriptions, unable to wean off once the early ‘relief’ has morphed into a worsening situation.

The disconnect is evident when the events are considered side-by-side, especially about the absence of any difference between street drugs and prescription psychoactive and pain drugs.  Children emulate parent behavior and naturally absorb their belief systems.  As parents trot off to a doctor to pick up drugs to feel ‘better’, children learn that drugs are ‘ok’ if you need to feel better.

It is important to experience a full range of emotions if one is to become resilient and adaptive.  When children are taught a quick way to avoid unwanted feelings, the results are predictable … brain damage, legal and social issues, death.

Slick pharmaceutical marketing promotes psychoactive drugs as safe – the answer to our ‘bad feelings’ and ‘mental illnesses’.  Notwithstanding the false and misleading claims of our doctors and drug companies, the scientific fact is that these drugs have been proven, since 1970, to be just as addictive, just as brain-damaging and just as life-decimating as street drugs.  

Doctors and street drug-pushers are one and the same to a child – a source of ‘happy pills’.  Teenagers easily see through the hypocrisy of drug prescription – if already force-fed drugs as children, they are well programmed for a life-time reliance on drugs for mood alteration.

Parents take prescription drugs and alcohol for the ‘high’ – to experience a ‘feel good’ mood, to alter their experience of life – obtaining them from a doctor after a 10 minute chat.  While parents tell children to ‘do as I say, not as I do’… youth soon find their own experts on drugs.  Thus, the only difference in the two scenarios becomes the source of the drugs.

Drugs do not work! Until we get a grip on that fact, we will continue to lose our children in the epidemic proportions we now see.

Isn’t it time we walked the talk and showed children, through better example, that there are healthy alternatives to drugs for the ‘bad’ days in life?   A qualified hypnotherapist can help with those ‘bad’ feelings.
