Psych Meds Keep You "Sick" & Make You WORSE
Evidence is mounting that psych meds are making people (& populations) worse, not better. Nations that don't keep their patients on meds have a higher recovery rate than, the "rich & modern" nations like the USA. You wont find this info welcome in my country because the USA is the home of "big pharma" & "capitalism at the cost of humanity."
- page 227, "Mad in America,” by Robert Whitaker...a research effort that lasted 8 years. ... At both two-year and five-year follow-ups, patients in three poor countries–India, Nigeria, and Colombia–were doing dramatically better than patients in the United States and four other developed countries. They were much more likely to be fully recovered and faring well in society–”an exceptionally good social outcome characterized these patients,” the WHO researchers wrote–and only a small minority had become chronically sick. At five years, about 64 percent of the patients in poor countries were asymptomatic and functioning well. Another 12 percent were doing okay, neither fully recovered nor chronically ill, and the final 24 percent were still doing poorly. In contrast, only 18 percent of the patients in the rich countries were asymptomatic and doing well, 17 percent were in the so-so category, and nearly 65 percent had poor outcomes….
The blog poster of this info had this to say about it:
giannakaliThis is further evidence that the chemical imbalance theory and even the link made to genes as a factor in mental illness is flawed. Environmental factors such as trauma and toxins are much more likely indicators.
i've been saying this for a long time about a lot of "mental disorders" yet i'm no one of importance and wont be listened to in the nation that makes these meds at gross profits.
Also of vital note for benzodiazepine users (like myself!):
- Professor C Heather Ashton DM, FRCPBenzodiazepines ... prescribed for ... stress-related reactions. ... if used for more than a few days they may prevent the normal psychological adjustment to such trauma. In the case of loss or bereavement they may inhibit the grieving process which may remain unresolved for many years." ... "benzodiazepines may inhibit the learning of alternative stress-coping strategies, including cognitive behavioural treatment.
