It’s been interested researching the origins of Psychiatric Terminology/Definitions/Diagnosis… Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with a mental ‘disorder’ that can only be fixed by drugs ‘for the rest of your life?’. Since the 1950′s new psychiatric terms have been ‘voted on’ by psychiatrists with links to drug companies. They vote on the symptoms, what should and shouldn’t be included. Diagnosis change depending on political input and $$$ put in from different Drug Companies. In order to make the largest amount of $$$ they need to have a new beaut ‘illness’ to prescribe a newer (often repackaged) drug. It’s a trillion dollar industry.
So many people believe that the diagnosis is lucky to have been found – thank goodness they’ve found a reason for my feeling low, losing my temper, having really bad days… and there’s a drug to fix it. Isn’t ‘feeling emotional’ part of being human? We’re trying to suppress the very thing that separates us from animals!
There are over 70,000 known side effects of psychiatric drugs – everything from death (worst case scenario), dementia, rages, chronic depression, digestive disorders, further ‘mental illness’, non-verbal behaviours and more.
In the U.S.A. children are being screened (questionaires) filled out be children in over 43 states, without parental permission. Over 50% of these questionaires that give a diagnosis of ‘high suicide risk’ or ‘pediatric biplar’ or ‘ADHD’ send parents to psychologists/psychiatrists who instantly prescribe drugs from the questionaire.
This is scary business.
Being on psychiatric drugs increases risk of child/teenage suicide by 65x. Is that a risk worth taking?
Children on ritilan for concentration are well known to become addicts to stronger drugs as they get older, snorting ritilan for a ‘faster fix.’
What are we doing to our children? It is becoming more and more acceptable to put our children (from 2 years old) onto medical drugs to suppress their childhood urges and to stop their ‘moodswings’ which are simply from being a child.
What can we do to help?
We have several specific programmes and solutions that support children:
- underlying health issues? thyroid? iron levels? B12/folate? liver function? hormonal issues? Often we are whacked on a psychiatric drug so quickly that no medical doctor has even thought of taking a look at other health issues.
- looking at nutrition. What are we eating? Are we absorbing our food? Do we have a DPP4 enzyme deficiency in the gut causing food staples such as wheat and dairy to act like opioids (Drugs) in the body and brain? We would also prescribe (if necessary, minerals, homeopathics, herbal combinations) depending on what’s going on.
- is our gut functional? There is a massive gut-brain connection – if the gut is dysfunctional, the brain will struggle. Are our kids starting the day with only carbohydrates (cereals/toast) which turn into sugar, raise blood sugar, and make them cranky/unable to concentrate?
- Kinesiology/Microcurrent therapy: the combination is fabulous – it helps to integrate the brain and detox the body.
Call us today for an initial consultation to get you or your loved one started on the road ‘back to health’.
