How can we, as a society claiming to be ‘evolved’ and civilized, continue to overlook the blatant misrepresentation of the facts regarding mental illness, psychopharmacology and conventional treatments of those suffering from normal emotional struggles?  Hundreds of landmark criminal and civil cases and scientific studies have proven that psychiatric treatments of emotional issues are nothing more than a wholesale crimes against humanity.  (more…)

Justice is Not Justice if Psychiatry is Involved in the Justice System

Justice System Hijacked by Psychiatry is Not Justice

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.  ~Adolf Hitler

The truly useless expenditure of time and intellect in the process of pumping air into a dead horse will remain just that…useless, and in the end, extremely damaging to the person who believes the horse will get up.  However, as long as the marketing pump and the courts, justice system and governments believe that the junk science of psychiatrists and psychologists has merit in the assessment of a person’s mind and intentions, the decisions of the courts will be, essentially, the decisions of pseudo-scientists who cannot objectively prove a single thing they claim as ‘fact’, but who will arrogantly claim the horse is rising! 

What is Junk Science and How Does it Affect Justice?

In his 1993 book Galilee’s Revenge: Junk Science in the Courtroom (pp. 2,3), author Peter Huber defined the term as follows:  “Junk science is the mirror image of real science, with much of the same form but none of the same substance.. . . It is a hodgepodge of biased data, spurious inference, and logical legerdemain, patched together by researchers whose enthusiasm for discovery and diagnosis far outstrips their skill. It is a catalog of every conceivable kind of error: data dredging, wishful thinking, truculent dogmatism, and, now and again, outright fraud. “  (more…)

Plain Language Labelling Will Save Lives

Plain Language Labelling Will Save Lives

It’s a travesty that it took 13 years of cajoling  to get government to do a bit of its job for Canadians, but finally,  drug labels to warn patients about the true risks associated with prescription and over-the-counter drugs will now be mandated.  On June 14th, 2013,  Canada’s Minister of Health, Leona Aglukkaq, and Terence Young, MP for Oakville, ON  announced Plain Language Labelling Initiative  in Toronto.

Drugs Can Contribute to Memory Loss


Many people, especially the elderly are prescribed health-damaging prescription drugs with claims that they will slow memory loss and cognitive decline.  Turns out the opposite is true…they are ineffective and in many cases harmful. (more…)

Scared_Crying_ChildAward winning investigative journalist, Kelly O’Meara, has recently reported data released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), on the skyrocketing numbers of children diagnosed with “bipolar disorder” and the never-ending crime against children initiated by the baseless psychiatric theories of Harvard child psychiatrist, Dr. Joseph Biederman.

Biederman is credited with being the gang leader for diagnosing the alleged bipolar disorder in very young children and he is credited with prescribing the most powerful antipsychotic drugs as treatment.  Some readers may recall that he placed himself ‘next to God’ during a deposition in a landmark 2009 New Jersey lawsuit against AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly and J&J’s Janssen unit over their psychiatric drugs.

As a result of a US Congressional Inquiry it was learned that Biederman was paid $1.6 million dollars for slanting his “research” to support childhood bipolar disorder and the drugs pushed by Johnson & Johnson.  O’Meara comments  “Most revealing, however, were court documents released in March of 2009, which disclose that Biederman reportedly had promised drug maker Johnson & Johnson in advance that his studies on the antipsychotic drug Risperdone (Risperdal) would prove the drug to be effective when used on preschool age children.(more…)

Animated-Flag-CanadaIf you care about Canada’s democratic principles being eroded by lobbyists for major corporations like Monsanto, Big Oil, Big Biz and countries like China and the USA, then please take the time to read this Democracy Watch summary of the terrible things Canadian politicians and government bureaucrats are doing to our country at all levels, clearly reducing our Canadian democracy in the direction of third world countries…this is alarming.  As a direct result of this mafia-like behavior, we have pharmaceuticals running our health care system, we have pharmaceuticals and psychopathic psychiatrists and other doctors freely drugging and maiming our children by the millions, we have doctors lying about the addictiveness and brain-damaging effects of the drugs they cavalierly supply to unwitting patients, we have a hospital care system rated as the worst in the civilized world and our health care system is imploding.  66% of people die in hospital and iatragenic illness (death or illness caused by medical treatment) is the 2nd leading cause of death and maiming in Canada. 

While our Canadian democracy is being decimated by big business and political interests, the federal government pretends its millionaire and billionaire supporters are not salting away money in tax havens to avoid paying taxes.  Our entire election system has been hijacked by lobbyists and corporate donors to political parties, most of the members of these parties involving in behavior that is designed to enrich them and their families.  We are paying for Senators who are rarely if ever audited..primarly because there are no rules that govern government ethics and where there are rules, they are either not enforced or penalties result in a slap on the wrist.  Canadian citizens are being robbed blindly, made ill at alarming rates by Big Pharma running wild, our skies poisoned by Chemtrails to ‘control weather’ and our lands ruined by Big Oil so that China can have our oil and gas. 

 Please, click here and read the brilliant summary by Democracy Watch and help recover our democracy by signing the petition demanding ethical standards in Canadian goverment at all levels(more…)

SWAG – (Scientifically Wild Assed Guess) = the way psychiatry operates.

Prior to the advent of drugs, family doctors and patients decided what needed treating, whether it had an official name or not.  Often treatment involved lifestyle and dietary changes. Increasingly, since the 1950s, drug companies have been dictating medical care and psychiatric diagnosis.  In fact, now more than ever, drugs are manufactured first and a use for them created later.  For example, Ritalin and its cousins were manufactured first.  Later psychiatrists created a fictitious ‘disease’ drug companies feverishly marketed as ADHD and ADD.  

Psychiatric Diagnosis is Not Backed by Science

People forget that a psychiatric diagnosis for feeling sad, hurt, angry and other normal human emotions means they are ‘sick in the head’, primarily because doctors still falsely claim such feelings are caused by an abnormality of the brain. Even if the patient completely recovers, and whether correct or not, that psychiatric diagnosis will forever remain part of their medical record.  

Many people regret diagnoses profoundly when they are denied insurance, a security clearance and especially when they learn that there is NO scientific evidence whatever to support any so-called ‘mental illness’, not even depression or schizophrenia and that many studies have shown that mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, will resolve more quickly and permanently when the person is not medicated. 

How Psychiatric Diagnosis Messes with the Mind

Being told one is ‘mentally ill’ can really mess with their mind, especially if told drug therapy will be life-long.  After all, was that not a label used only for really ‘crazy’ people at one time?  According to sociologists Erving Goffman and Michel Foucault,  “The power of a diagnosis is that it changes the way people understand and identify with themselves”.  It would seem to be an element of brainwashing, a conditioning for life-long drug use based entirely on a myth and an opinion. 

Psychiatrist Daniel Carlat referred to this ‘myth’ as neurobabble in Unhinged stating that neurobiology and genetics have found NO evidence of a role of either chemicals, neurotransmitters or genes in ‘mental illness’.

With a diagnosis, a doctor has safely passed judgment on a person’s morality by fraudulently disguising it as a scientific finding – he has decided for that person, based on his own personal biases, what is wrong with that person, with their experience of and reaction to life, and moreover, just how to ‘fix’ it.  Yet, that very science is bought and paid for by pharmaceutical drug money; a voodoo science so useless that genuine scientists and ethical doctors abhor it.

It seems that the biggest problem with modern life is that who we should be and how we should live is directed more and more by self-appointed experts on humanity and their definition of what is ‘normal’.  This leaves people buying into expert ‘opinion’ about what kind of people we should be, taking us further and further from our life journey.  The result is profound unhappiness, a fear that we just won’t or can’t measure up and the reliance on drugs. 

Authority figures exercising their ‘powers’ like this are more dangerous then those using actual physical force – its subtlety results in such self-doubt in the patient that they can no longer trust their own instincts or follow their own heart’s desires.  The patient becomes an ‘emotional cripple’, paralyzed to do anything but agree with someone he is convinced knows more about him then even their Creator.  The uniqueness of that person and their experience with life is never factored or acknowledged by conventional medicine.

The patient becomes fashioned in the image of the ‘authority’ figure telling him what he is, instead of being shaped by his own uniqueness.  The ‘authority’s’ assessment is as unreliable and false as the ‘science’ behind it.  The image a psychiatric patient is assigned is entirely dependent on whose deciding that day.  

Studies have shown that psychiatrists can be counted on to choose differently for the same symptoms.  In fact, as Gary Greenberg notes in Manufacturing Depression, a ‘mental illness’ can be eradicated simply by a vote as was done when the psychiatric diagnosis of homosexuality was removed from the diagnostic manual. This surely demonstrated that the only thing psychiatrists could do reliably was to diagnose diseases that did not exist. The DSM (psychiatric diagnostic manual) is truly great fiction needlessly and negatively affecting the lives of tens of millions.

So Why the Psychiatric Diagnosis? 

To be lawfully permitted to prescribe drugs, doctors require a ‘disease’ to treat.  It does not matter if the psychiatric diagnosis is incorrect or damaging to the patient (which is about 100% of the time), as long as it meets the pharmaceutical agenda by legitimizing what would otherwise be illegal drug promotion. As well as serving to protect pharmaceuticals from the bad reputations street drug pushers have, diagnoses facilitate insurance company reimbursements.

What Has Society Learned from Decades of Psychiatric Diagnosis and Treatment?

Seventy-five years of drug therapy and mental illness diagnoses have taught us that you cannot drug, drink, eat, work, exercise, medicate or talk your way past a persistent ‘bad’ feeling.  We have also learned that drugs ,and the diagnoses legitimizing them, cause loss of self, permanent brain damage, birth defects, suicide, homicide, aggression, emotional blunting and disconnection, sexual dysfunction, cardiovascular, liver and kidney issues and reduced quality of life.  Drugs and electroshock cannot affect the soul/spirit.  Proof of that is in how people drugged to the point of physical damage for years continue to complain of sadness, guilt, shame and fears.  In other words, torturing the brain won’t make you feel better.

Hypnotherapy Can Help Resolve Mental Illness Without Psychiatric Diagnosis

Decades of hypnotherapy treatment for the normal issues facing humans in every walk of life have assisted clients back to a good quality of life, mastery over their own lives and self-empowerment. For a drug-free, diagnosis-free resolution of emotional hardship and treatment for anxiety, depression and other mental health issues, qualified hypnotherapy can be your first and best choice.  I welcome all enquiries.

Scared_Crying_Child     Child advocates around the world are calling for a ban on the psychoactive drugging of children. Psychiatric drugs are not approved for use in children…they are prescribed off-label.  These drugs are damaging millions of children. Can we continue to allow this?

 WARNING:  never stop taking psychoactive drugs abruptly.

The Effects Psychiatric Drugs Have on Children

Medicated children may be quieter for a while, but they often endure daily headaches, withdrawal symptoms, nausea and stomach cramps, suicidal thoughts, diabetes, stroke, depression, mania and hallucinations.   Children routinely report feeling empty and unable to feel interest in anything.  Most develop chronic physical health problems, stunting, obesity and uncontrollable muscular tics and movements. Many end up suffering irreversible drug-induced bi-polar disorder, as well as permanent emotional blunting.  (more…)

Adam_Lanza_sig          Adam Lanza Toxicology Report Petition

Please go to this site and sign the Adam Lanza Toxicology Report Petition to assist Patricia Sabato force the authorities to release the medical records which most everyone following the carnage and shootings at Sandy Hook School want made public.   

“We want the records before they ask for more money for mental health, which could be dangerous. We want the records to know what kind of mental health treatment he was receiving. We need to know what he was taking.” — Patricia Sabato

Petition Demands Full Disclosure:  Adam Lanza’s Toxicology Report

From CCHR International (Citizens Committee on International Human Rights) Newsletter (March 13/13)     Last week, Newtown mother Patricia Sabato, a mother who is an advocate certified under the state General Assembly, along with Ablechild, a national nonprofit parent organization that focuses on informed consent and the right to refuse psychiatric screening and drug treatment, started a petition to make sure the necessary steps to ensure that the complete autopsy/toxicology results of alleged Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza, be released to the public. Specifically, the toxicology tests that would determine whether Lanza was yet another school shooter under the influence of, or in withdrawal from, psychiatric drugs, documented to cause violent behavior.

She garnered more than 200 signatures in two days around Newtown alone, calling for the state to release Lanza’s autopsy/toxicology records. She’s also testified before a state legislative subcommittee studying mental health services in the wake of the Dec. 14 shooting.  The public cannot have a clear picture of the real causes of this carnage without having access to the drug treatment he Adam Lanza was receiving before and at the time of the massacre.  Given the increasingly clear link between crime and psychiatric drugs, there can be no more shielding the medical system.

“Adam Lanza wasn’t born evil,” Sabato said. “We want the records before they ask for more money for mental health, which could be dangerous. We want the records to know what kind of mental health treatment he was receiving. We need to know what he was taking.” 

“I watched my own child turn into a monster on medication. I know first-hand the affects of this type of medication,” Sabato said. Sabato sites evidence that 9 out of the 10 mass shooting suspects were on some type of psychotropic medication.

PLEASE SIGN THE ADAM LANZA TOXICOLOGY REPORT PETITION now!    IT’S TIME WE ALL KNEW WHAT PSYCHIATRY IS DOING TO OUR SOCIETY so that we can put the blame where it belongs.

Hypnotherapy for Self-Healing

Hypnotherapy for Mental Illness

 Hypnotherapy utilizes the natural state of hypnosis to facilitate the changes clients want.  Hypnosis is as natural as breathing; most everyone experiences it daily.  It is not sleep, unconsciousness, nor is it therapy in of itself.  It’s better described as a day-dream state during which a competent therapist can assist a client to make the desired changes at the subconscious level.

Navigating the Field of Hypnotherapy: From Mental Illness to Emotional Wellness Naturally

Sometimes the interchange of the terms hypnosis and hypnotherapy, hypnotist and hypnotherapist, consulting hypnotist, hypno-psychologist, doctor of hypnosis and so on, cause confusion for those looking for assistance with a particular issue or goal.

In the USA, UK and Canada, several organizations promote hypnosis and hypnotherapy.  Some are simply membership organizations and anyone can join, but two others – The IMDHA (International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association) and the APHP (Association of Professional Hypnosis and Psychology) have specific requirements around medical, dental and clinical hypnotism training.  Because of these strict requirements, hypnotherapy practitioners are skilled to assist with emotional, spiritual and mental illnesses and imbalances.

The APHP have very strict requirements of their members.  Membership and certification of schools is by application and proof of credentialing and training in the field of medical hypnotism. The IMDHA certifies hypnotherapy schools which teach basic hypnotism techniques first, followed by training in the applications of hypnosis for medical (including mental illness) and dental purposes.  The designation earned is Certified Hypnotherapist. Practitioners are trained to work with allied healthcare (mental/dental) professionals in focus areas of regression, medical , dental and behavioral hypnosis.  As a result, regression hypnotherapists are typically skilled at assisting those suffering from mental illness identify and dissolve the root causes of emotional suffering.

Clinical hypnotherapists are able to provide safe, dignified assistance to those suffering mental illness issues without need for a diagnosis and in all clinical settings.   Hypnotherapy practitioners are required to continue their education in the medical/dental areas and remain up-to-date with the advances in this rapidly expanding field.

The Difference Between a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Hypnotist
