Ok, I think most of you know that I am not a Scientologist or endorsing the Church of Scientology. Surely, that is not an issue. But when I see something that is right on target regarding the issue of psychiatric disorders, I have to let you know about it. Check out this link endorsed by the Church of Scientology:
In this article, Food Matters writes,
The fact is, psychiatry STILL doesn’t understand what causes psychological distress, and the primary theory proposed; the idea that unwanted behavior and depression are due to an imbalance of serotonin and dopamine in your brain, has NEVER been proven. On the contrary, research has proven the theory is WRONG, yet this evidence has been swept under the proverbial rug. Despite what the slick advertisements say, psychotropic drugs have no measurable biological imbalances to correct—unlike other drugs that can measurably alter levels of blood sugar, cholesterol and so on. “How can you medicate something that is not physically there?” they ask in this documentary. The answer is, of course, you can’t! Doing so anyway is a dangerous game.
These folks get it!
Also, watch “The Marketing of Madness” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1nbZCNDgbY for an informative inside look at psychiatric disorders and how they are “created” with pharmaceuticals waiting in the wings for the new “diseases.” They quote psychiatrists and actual leaders who influence the DSM-V (the psychological “bible”) and its creation of so-called diseases.
