Modern Psychiatry Is Demonic

lol this is a load of rubbish.

I'm on 7.5mg atm of olazapine for paranoid schizophenia and a other 400mg of sodium valoprate for seizures. they killed people like me back in the day for being demonic. I know the bible quite well. Listening to a false church singer now kari jobes boyfriend. That church named some shit like elevation church its leader pastor said he was God. Prosperity gospel full bore there too. Listen to here again and the lyrics are the Lord is in this place. Pastor must think hes the lord listening to that music all the time.



basically the bible tells you not to fear man but God alone. I got threatened the other week by a transexual in her apartment drinking spirits. I was still thinking after 5 drinks in the space of 2 hours and couldnt get a errection with her until she kicked me out. take me out to the desert and kill me basically was her threat. everyone hates me in the gay club with their 666 bottle upstairs vodka drink.

Basically brahs all this fear is going to smash ya spiritually. you still gotta be wise in a sense and harmless a dove. having a innocent way of being is the key.

children do as they are told by authority. I regularly get kicked out of nightclubs for breaking the rules and been too rude for a gay club even. i get back in or get a ban but authority is respected. Doctors have this authority. Govts have this authority. Mark of the beast is post rapture. yeah yeah bluetooth IDs from vaccines dont know if that true who cares.

anyways have a watch of this guy in this video and have a laugh.


I don't believe in the lie of lordship salvation by the way and im bad to bone. Christ righteousness is what i seek and everything else is added to ya ass. Yeah yeah yeah if you love God you obey his commandments there is serveral hundred of them but base it down to this

Love God and love your neighbour.

have a nice day. don't fear some drug a doctor gives ya like paul didn't worry and fear about a snake biting him.

Funny how these types only post once then ghost. All psychiatry is demonic, all pills separate you from God. I would tell this guy to get an exorcism and stop trying to run from God-given reality (which is not a happy kingdom yet). I don't understand people who try to justify their sins. Mine are horrible, and I repent as often as I can. I am on a very gradual upward climb out of a spiritual cesspit even with my knowledge of God, Jesus, salvation, the scriptures, and world history, what makes a difference is severing the demonic influence at the source, which for many people is the demon (or demons) they have inside them. I know of no other way to do this as effectively as an exorcism, if performed by righteous practitioners who have been trained well.

I do not believe it is Roosh's intent to invalidate the entire profession. There are, I'm sure, good Christian psychiatrists like yourself and Abbot Tryphon, who do not abuse their patients with toxic drugs.

However, psychiatry as it is practiced today is largely an evil enterprise.

Perhaps, but any post titled Modern ______ is demonic, is at the very least inflammatory.
And, as you can see from the post by musicforthepiano above, the modifier tends to get dropped.
"All psychiatry is demonic, all pills separate you from God"

And poof... the entire profession is now invalidated

I believe one of the root causes for the anxiety a lot of people experience is the cup of coffee or other caffeinated beverages they drink heavily throughout the day. Cutting this habit does not rid life of its stressors but it does help how they are handled.
Oh no, is coffee really that bad? I drink like 2 cups a day and maybe 3 cups of tea.

I wonder, anyone quit coffee and truly felt better?

Great article. Watching my country literally die in front of my eyes is not easy. I could use a really good therapist right now. That said, I'm aware of their tendencies to treat, if at all, symptoms vs. the cause. And the cause is the root and, therefore, the true focal point. Yet, how am I supposed to go to a "therapist" and tell him, "hey, let's get down to brass tacks, I'm feeling sad because of feminism, homosexuality, "gender", indoctrination, perversity, arrogant and ignorant elitist freak/pedophiles, etc".

Once there was a client-therapist confidentiality clause and I'm sure this clause still exists, but, its not the same. There are exceptions and they'll let you know upfront. For instance, if you intend to harm someone or harm yourself. I shuttered to think because I think this is true, that going to a therapist and opening up about the real stressors, i.e. rampant radical leftism, runs the risk that the therapist may report you. Think about it. I can say, "hey it very much disturbs me that cross-dressing is being encouraged". This is making me depressed. Look at Chapelle. The argument against him is that he's hurting, i.e. intending to do harm to another, therefore, isn't a therapist required to "report" such things? And there's a record that is created, which again, can be accessed by authorities if "the clause" permits. The Soviets used to call its detractors mental patients too. I suspect there is a lot of desperation and depression today caused by the fall of America. We could all use a good therapist. But, its very sad and yet one more thing radical leftism destroys. You can't go to a complete stranger, regardless if they're a "therapist" or not. You can't trust them. And so, we suffer.

Also, therapists are likely to be left-wing. Their entire practices have morphed from helping people cope to specializing in "gender confusion" or "sexuality issues" (which only means one thing). There will always be an obligatory and separate "lgtdkduw*&^834 issues" too, even though its duplicitous to the "sexuality issues". Their practices have been designed to look only at left wing "problems".

Anecdotally, therapists seem to be struggling locally and that's good thing. Probably for the reasons I outlined above.
There are a few of us counselors out here helping others in the name of Jesus. I'm conservative and Bible believing, not left wing. Roosh is right, we all need a savior, and the wisdom of God as we apply it from His Word. Psychotropic meds are an abomination and extremely addictive even though they lie and say they are not. Please pray for us who have departed from the secular therapy world with it's idols to serve God and be a vessel for His counsel.

It depends on your genetics…

In a randomized double-blind experiment performed in two occasions 7 days apart, 480 mg of caffeine and a caffeine-free solution were administered and anxiety scales were administered before and after each test. A panic attack was induced in 17 (60.7%) PD patients, 4 (16.0%) GSAD patients, and 10 (52.6%) PSAD patients, during the caffeine test. None of the control subjects had a panic attack after the caffeine intake.

 
Welcome back Roosh, Godspeed to you recovering fully as well.

Psychology and psychiatry are both jewish in nature and designed to remove us from the connection we have with God.

Previous to Freud where did people go with their mental, emotional and spiritual problems?

The church!

Confessionals were a revolving door of people repenting at one time.

Now they are empty.

Meanwhile we have a society of over medicated zombies and sexual degenerates who are told the path to happiness is further degeneracy and medication.

Yes. The post title is provocative if one finds the statement offensive. Sometimes the truth offends individuals, perhaps even more so when the truth is in conflict with an individual’s behaviours, beliefs, and lifestyles.

Panzerhund makes a solid point:

Previous to Freud where did people go with their mental, emotional and spiritual problems?

It was the Church, ministers, and women who treated the "mentally" ill. And it was the nature rather than the "treatment" that was the focus in contemporary medical literature prior to 1800.

Society has accomplished taking God out of everything and placing man's "theories" at the center. So yes. "modern psychiatry" is demonic given the focus on pills as the treatment. If someone is depressed why would one prescribe pills that suppress the depression? This emotion is needed to submit and to heal.

Individuals are tempted into madness by Satan exploiting man's moral weakness.

If you accept the concept of original sin and that it affects the WHOLE person including the mind, all that is left is to discuss treatment.

In a 1740 sermon, for an individual who committed suicide, Solomon Williams "emphasized how the ignorance and perverse desires of the Mind ultimately gave rise to bodily illness, which in turn reacted back upon the mind to weaken the power of reason."
(Report to the President from The President's Commission on Mental Health, volume one).

An interaction of moral excessess and physical illness leads to the byproduct of madness.

The 88-1 Congress, Mental Health Hearings 1963 stated digestive tract disturbances and other organs could affect the brain and cause mental disturbances. And could morbid or perverse thoughts not lead to adverse physiological consequences? Society has perfected social engineering.

William Buchan's Domestic Medicine outlines the human body as a equilibrium system. Imbalances lead to illnesses. Garbage in garbage out.

However, psychiatry as it is practiced today is largely an evil enterprise.

The title of this article is slightly inaccurate, as it seems to be more about pharmacotherapy rather than psychiatry in general. Pharmacotherapy, which is really just pill pushing, is the laziest form of therapy there is. In fact, it's not really therapy at all. Most doctors and specialists will prescribe and overprescribe medications for any health complaint just so they can pretend they have done something about the problem.

My own experience with pharmacotherapy was that doctors just like to string you along with false hopes and expectations so they can keep you running on a hamster wheel of filling out prescriptions and taking drugs ad infinitum. In most cases, the drugs do nothing but infect your bloodstream, interfere with your metabolic processes, and turn you into a lethargic bovine zombified carcass -- one of the walking dead. I spent about two years doped on Paxil and clonazepam, and during that time I literally could not think straight, read or remember anything, or do any schoolwork. I ended up withdrawing from university because I could not finish any of my courses in that condition. The only silver lining was that I had already done enough course work which allowed me to earn my degree and be granted complete forgiveness of my student loans. Nevertheless, it was two years of my life down the drain that sapped my confidence enough to inhibit me from doing what I needed to do for many years afterward. After university, I languished in poverty for almost nine years living on disability checks, petty mischief and part time work. Eventually, I was able to leave the West and get a salaried job teaching in Asia (so that degree proved somewhat useful after all).

As we're finding out with the COVID vaccines, most medications don't work as advertised and many have all kinds of unpleasant side effects that we don't hear about until after the fact. Big pharmaceutical companies are notorious for their fraudulent and deceptive practices and many have had to pay out tens of millions of dollars in legal settlements. But that still doesn't stop them or make them change their ways.

Marxist globalists want to nationalize the American healthcare sector so that government tyrants in cahoots with crony capitalist corporations and lobbyists can control clinics and hospitals with an iron fist and profiteer at the expense of the average citizen. These oligarchs have already done the same with practically every other major institution and public trust (education, the military, the police force). All the while, corrupt industries like the banks, big tech, big retail, the news and entertainment media are happily abetting and facilitating their schemes.

The York Retreat in 1792 may have been the slow shift for psychiatry - becoming part of the "medicine," field where drugs were widely acceptable means of treatment. Because there was a resistance and a distrust in the use of treatment methods (drugs, bleeding, emetics, and cathartics) the retreat's objective was to assist patients with the internal development of self-restraint and self-control.

The difference between psychologists and psychiatrists is that now (not always the view) psychiatry is seen as a field of "medicine."

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (completed medical school and residency) with special training in psychiatry. A psychiatrist is able to conduct psychotherapy and prescribe medications and other medical treatments.​
A psychologist usually has an advanced degree, most commonly in clinical psychology, and often has extensive training in research or clinical practice. Psychologists treat mental disorders with psychotherapy and some specialize in psychological testing and evaluation. link source

I work In psychiatry and I am a Christian since birth.

1. Original Sin --> (some) Disease. This effects BOTH body and mind.
For example, gluttony --> obesity --> DM2, but gluttony has nothing to do with type 1 diabetes which is autoimmune.
Unless you deny original sin or can explain why original sin only affects the body and not the mind, your theology is off.

If you accept the concept of original sin and that it affects the WHOLE person including the mind, all that is left is to discuss treatment.

2. Both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology are treatments depending on the disease.
For example, psychotherapy is first line treatment for PTSD while a medication such as lithium would be used in severe bipolar.
You will note that lithium is on the periodic table and was created by God, not pharmaceutical companies.

Now you can certainly say that companies controlled by sinful man does sinful things such as overprescribe or practices greed in pricing, however that does NOT invalidate the the discipline as a whole.

Good day
"Lithium" the medication is not the same as "lithium" the element on the periodic table.

A quick Wikipedia search revealed that lithium (medication) is actually made of "lithium salts," the most commonly used of which is lithium carbonate, which has a chemical formula of Li2CO3.

If you work in psychiatry, you should know this. The fact that you don't either means your training is really bad or you are deliberately misrepresenting things.

Also, your comparison of diabetes to psychiatric "illnesses" is faulty.

The physical, organic causes of diabetes are known.

What is the physical, chemical cause of depression or schizophrenia?

"Chemical imbalance in the brain" (which implies the brain chemistry must be changed through drugs)?

Give me a break.

True enough. The essential practical difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist is that a psychiatrist is a licensed medical doctor who has the authority to prescribe medications, whereas a psychologist, who is often merely a clinical talk therapist and/or research academic, has no such authority. Pharmacotherapy is thus very much in the realm of psychiatry and not psychology. Likewise, when making legal appeals of any kind (e.g., pre-sentencing reports, applications for disability, insurance claims, subsidized housing, student loan forgiveness, etc.), a psychiatrist's testimony and signature will always carry far more weight than the opinions of a psychologist.

Now that Western medicine is tightly controlled by corporations and compassionless doctors who follow the dictates of Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, we are arriving at a point in history where, if you don’t have access to medical care, your life span may increase, such as I imagine the case in the days when witch doctors practiced trepanation. Within this murderous beast of death care is psychiatry, the most evil component within a greater evil. From my research and firsthand experience, psychiatry is a vehicle of Satan to destroy minds, sterilize women, and ultimately condemn souls to hell.

The secular world makes people ill by denying the presence of God, and then the secular world gives the solution of psychiatry and its obsession of prescribing anti-depressant and anti-psychotic drugs which fleece billions of dollars from patients via recurring monthly payments for those who become dependent on them and simply cannot quit. The situation has become so bad that even the leftist media is starting to highlight a problem that is called antidepressant discontinuation syndrome, where some people must take pharmaceutical drugs for the rest of their lives to avoid mental incapacitation, “brain zaps,” total psychosis, and even permanent brain damage.

Psychiatric drugs are hard to get off of because the brain reworks itself around the artificial chemicals it finds itself bathed in daily, and as soon as those chemicals are withdrawn, the brain cannot adapt fast enough to create a neurochemical balance that does not result in a variety of terrifying mental symptoms which many patients cannot handle without severe disruption to their lives and overall health. Even worse, drug companies create tablet and capsule dose increments that are too large to allow a tapered, safe withdraw, leading to patients having to hack open their capsules and measure dosages with microgram scales to methodically wean themselves off drugs as if they were a trained pharmacist in a process that—for those who are unlucky enough to have serious withdrawal symptoms—can take two or more years to accomplish safely, if ever. The doctors and the drug companies are happy to put you on potent brain drugs for life, but they don’t care for getting you off them, and User3428 posting in one of numerous anti-depressant withdrawal forums online will be able to give you more aid than a trained physician. Unless someone on psychiatric drugs is ready to become their own researcher, doctor, pharmacist, and nutritionist, they inevitably become slaves to pharmaceutical companies and their drugs whose manufacture is cheaply outsourced to China and India.

Psychiatry confuses cause and effect​


male-doctor-scan-1024x683.jpg


The whole field of psychiatry is backward rationalization. They study patients with mental illness, theorize on the biochemical state of their brains, and then shovel them with ultra-addictive drugs to make their brains appear similar to those without mental illness, but this is merely studying the effect of a disorder and then declaring it to be the cause. Their ultimate conclusion is that brain imbalance causes brain imbalance. What science can measure of the brain is not a cause of illness but the effect of illness. In other words, your beliefs, lifestyle, relationships, environment, diet, and faith are the inputs—the true causes—which create the visible brain functioning that scientists can scantily observe and critique, but your brain itself, the very physiology of it, is rarely the organic cause for mental illness.

A psychiatrist will study house fires, notice that firemen always seem to be present at them, and then create a solution to destroy all firehouses, the “obvious” source of fires. A psychiatrist will look at an old car with a broken fuel pump and then try to solve it by filling the gas tank with jet fuel. A psychiatrist will compensate for a cake that is too sweet by sprinkling vinegar on top. They have lost the script when it comes to cause and effect and have applied a one-size-fits-all remedy to anyone who walks through their doors and claims to be “sad” by dosing them with drugs that many will never get off of, a fact that is hidden from the patient. Even general-practice doctors seem to rush to dope up their patients who claim the mildest of fleeting emotional-related phenomena.

Having a “brain chemical imbalance” is often the effect of a faithless or sinful state of existence where depression is due to the consequences of secular life, or one that is far from what God intended. The root cause of emotional malaise must be addressed and then the imbalance will correct itself, but only up to a point because we exist in a post-Adamic fallen state and will not experience heaven or bliss in this life. If you attempt to correct your sadness with drugs, without addressing the root cause, and especially without faith, you merely become a zombie who is still suffering but simply can’t feel it. If I burn myself often while cooking, the solution is better cooking technique, not taking a drug which removes my ability to feel the pain of being burned, because I will simply continue to get burned. In fact, I will be burned even more, and my cooking ability will decrease.

Do psychiatric drugs remove repentance?​


woman-sad-bedside-1024x683.jpg


Psychiatric drugs disconnect you from your humanity and make it harder for you to repent before God. Consider that God gave us emotional states to help us orient our lives closer to Him, similar to how ancient sailors used an hourglass, quadrant, and compass to arrive at their intended destination. If we’re feeling constantly sad then something is wrong and we must meet with our priest, double our prayers, and search through the Gospel for answers to alleviate our pain and reorient our lives, because the cause is spiritual in nature or mostly so, which I can say with high confidence because of the vehemently nihilistic secularism and humanism we are all born into. By removing your sadness through chemical means to feel a lack of sadness (but not quite happiness), the psychiatrist will allow the years to fly by without the need for God. How many souls needed God’s love but were later condemned for eternity because they were given Chinese-made anti-depressants instead of Church sacraments, and died while in that medically-induced conscious coma?

Anything that blocks or delays repentance while offering no spiritual fruits is by definition demonic, and so psychiatric drugs must only be used in uncontrollable situations or to prevent a sin even greater than dying of natural causes without repentance: suicide. A suicidal person needs a priest more than a drug, but if the person does not have a priest, which is the greater problem than brain imbalance, and the only action that can stop him from killing himself is to dose him on anti-psychotics, perhaps it is better to give him the drugs, but if he is feeling merely depressed, or unhappy that he doesn’t have a girlfriend, it is better to get him a priest who will serve as his doctor, because once he goes on the drugs, and the sadness can no longer be perceived, replaced instead by the demonic magic of mental numbness, he may never seek out God for as long as he lives.

Saint Paisios of Mount Athos, who is highly revered in the Orthodox Church, advises against psychiatric drugs, which may only be of “some” help in serious patients:



Did you know that psychiatric drugs were explicitly targeted to women, particularly white women?



These women have been deceived from birth to expect the world to make them “happy,” but lo and behold, they arrive at a point, usually in their late 20s, where they followed feminist and anti-racist doctrine to a T after attending numerous diversity trainings and gay pride parties and yet are still not happy. Their life is in disorder, cheap entertainments and sex cannot fill the void in their spirit, so the cause of it all must be a brain imbalance, and like the good doctor may confidently add, depression has a genetic component and must run in the family, because the patient remembers her grandmother was sad that one time after grandpa died, and yet the doctor forgot to tell her that every single human being born after Adam and Eve is “predisposed” towards falling into abject sadness, depression, addiction, and often the most vile of evils, and it’s really a roll of the dice that determines which psychological ailment you will struggle against, like every other human being who is alive, ready to be diagnosed and managed by the pharmaceutical industry.

Psychiatry enables inversion​


woman-feminist-superhero-1024x552.jpg


Feminism is demonic because it inverts the natural order by trying to make man as coming from the woman’s rib instead of the other way around, and here comes the psychiatrist to further enable this inversion with a heavily-marketed drug that keeps the independent woman working, without a husband, while just functional enough to take care of her pets and social media accounts that are replacements for children she cannot have because of a spiritual condition made worse by the secular authorities she should never have trusted.

How can a woman, who is chemically numbed in the brain, have the discernment to pick a husband? I have been told by a therapist that for many people who go on psychiatric drugs, at the time of their first dose they halt the process of maturation. Instead of being able to recognize threats and traps like normal people, they simply avoid them while in a comfortable medical stupor, and so there goes the maturity needed to have a relationship that leads to marriage. Besides, how can a woman who is on powerful brain-altering drugs have kids when the toxin she ingests in pill form crosses the placenta and attacks the baby’s brain from when it is the size of a rice kernel? The inorganic mental illness of the mother and her faith in medicine over God eventually becomes a very real organic illness of a child that grows up to have severe mental and physical impairments that cannot be healed. It turns out the autism epidemic is not only suspected to be caused by vaccination but by mothers having babies while on psychiatric medicines.

Psychiatrists are the mad scientists of our times, which is a slight compliment to them because at least they are not the butchers of our times like those performing abortions or transgender surgeries as heralded by Johns Hopkins University, but both sets of doctors, the doctor of medicine who damages the brain and the doctor of surgery who mutilates the body, need each other to achieve Satan’s will, because the women who commit abortions and the men who chop off their penises need the psychiatrist to alleviate the inevitable pain that results from the hands of Satan’s butcher, not just the mental and emotional pain but the pain of a soul crying out in need of God. The doctors all work as a team to destroy the human soul, one prescription, vaccination, and surgery at a time, until all that is left is a husk of a human who can’t even comprehend plain and self-evident facts of the cosmos that God created. I see the same process in play with the coronavirus epidemic, where people who are scared of dying reach out not to their Creator but to doctors who put them on ventilators and inject them with genetic therapy “vaccines” that cause inflammation and blood clots throughout their body. Once you see the medical industry as one of many departments of Satan that is essential for hastening death and removing repentance, their actions make much more sense. I predict that medicine of the future will involve mostly genetic therapies and identity-destroying surgeries that will make repentance not just difficult but impossible because patients accepted a series of treatments that irreparably damaged what it means for them to be human.

I’m hard on psychiatry because of witnessing the experience of a friend, Gennadias. Due to a combination of ignorance and trust in medical science, he began taking anti-depressant drugs in college, and several years later, he was ready to come off of them when he was in a better place in life, even reaching ever so meekly out to God. He tapered off his medication by 25%. I was then able to witness firsthand the withdrawal effects that I, as a middle-aged man, was not prepared to witness. I don’t want to violate his privacy by sharing more detail, but it was so severe that I needed help and encouragement from holy men just to help him. Thankfully, I was strongly with God during this period and was able to pray for him, which I believe helped, unlike when my sister was ill with cancer and I did not have God in my life or pray for her even once. Gennadias was able to endure and overcome the first round of withdrawal effects, thanks to God, but the experience served as vivid proof of the demented evil of psychiatry. No matter how spiritually sick you are, even if you are demon-possessed, the spiritual treatment of the Orthodox Church has no greater side effect than fatigue, and yet the side effects I saw in Gennadias were so torturous that I don’t think I could personally endure them, because when they hit you, no matter how intellectually or spiritually enlightened you may be, your mind will be so out of your control that you may not even be able to perceive the very notion of God to lean on Him for help.

Western medicine is harming souls​


girl-vaccine-doctor-1024x628.jpg


Anger is a sin, but anger at Satan, sin, and evil is not, and so I feel that my anger at psychiatry and the medical industry is righteous, because I use it as fuel to warn people to be very careful when depending on secularized knowledge and wisdom that is stripped bare of God and whose point is for you to not see God. As Satan continues to work his evil within the field of medicine, you will soon encounter treatments that are so evil and barbaric that I would not be surprised if grieving family members retaliate against doctors not with lawsuits but violence. That step may be reached once dangerous medical treatments become mandatory.

I’m not a doctor, but that doesn’t preclude me from having a medical opinion, because the truth is not confined to a priestly class. I believe that a person with symptoms of depression or psychosis should consult with an Orthodox priest for spiritual diagnosis and treatment. I would guess that treatment will include repentance, baptism, receiving communion, prayer, a change of diet, lifestyle adjustments, and in severe cases, exorcism. This treatment will take months and years for the spiritual patient to crawl out of the darkness that was likely caused by a life lived far from Christ. If you are one of the unlucky few who has an organic cause to your mental illness because you were dropped as a child or sustained a war injury then the treatment remains the same, because your best hope for living a life of normalcy and ultimately salvation lies within the Orthodox Church. The pharmaceutical industry will be too happy to dope you up with pills for their monetary gain, and it is even spoken about openly that their most optimal financial strategy is to keep you popping pills for the rest of your life. There is no profit in one-time cures, and if such a cure is ever spontaneously found, I wonder how many billions of dollars the pharmaceutical companies would pay to keep it hidden while they continue to dose an ever-increasing percentage of the population with expensive drugs that are usually combined with other expensive drugs to inhibit a human being’s ability to unite with his Creator, whose grace is the only cure.

If you are suicidal, and refuse spiritual treatment, take all the psychiatric drugs you want, because death by suicide, a grave sin, is a worse outcome than the potential of being doped up, but now that you know how difficult it is to get off these drugs, understand that the solution psychiatry gives you is a spiritual suicide that can waste decades of your life. Seek out the Church, and if you don’t believe in the Church or God then it’s clear to me what is the root cause of your disease.

Someone with mental illness may have a thousand problems, but their biggest problem is spiritual, and if he still has mental illness though he is in the Church, then we must assume it’s not serious enough to block his salvation, unlike a person who takes psychiatric drugs and remains outside the Church. Life is hard, and even though I have Christ in my heart, there are many days where I feel like I cannot move a finger. There are days I want to respond in anger to the most minor of slights, and on those days I step up my prayer to overcome what I’m sure is an attack by Satan and his legions. Only the sacraments of the Church can heal me, only the wisdom of holy elders will lighten my burden, only my unceasing prayer can spite Satan and his deranged strategy to take my soul and others. I will not count on psychiatry unless I feel that I cannot live for another moment, but well before that happens, I will lean on God, and know with confidence that He will respond.

Welp, sadly I belonged to the 1 in 5 statistic for a while. The doctor tried to pair my “depression” with “paranoia” because I lived in the basement of an old house with creeky windows and in response to one of his many questions I told him that sometimes I was worried there would be an animal in the basement. LOL .

Article doesn't go far enough. Nobody needs a Therapist (The Rapist). All Mental Health Torture needs to be abolished. It is an absolute rubbish Pseudoscience.

I had a situation arise where I got the chance to run a Roshenhan Experiment 2.0. Cops took me in for a psych eval because of my books. Two being The Federalist Papers and The Anti Federalist Papers. The second one was named in the police report. Both of them have copies of The Constitution in them. Apprantly, thats a symptom of a mental illness. I was then yelled and screamed at and called a Nazi by a Nurse. Didn't even see a Doctor for 24 hours. She had no idea what an Anthropologist was. Violated HIPPA (Reasonable Professional Belief). Tried to take my gun rights away. Oh and my Catholic Bible was sitting right next to all those other books too.

It's a completely rubbish Pseudoscience. Anyone that thinks it's legit needs to be kicked out of your life.

Went to go join The Marines and they believed it. Apprantly The Constitution is an Anti-Government Document. Their words not mine. So screw Psychiatry. I could go on and on, but please see any of the books by Thomas Szasz.

I'm surprised it took this long for people to come around to the notion that Psychiatry is Quackery. Psychiatrists need to be given a dose of their own medicine.

The scary thing a LOT of people dont realize, is the legal and police power psychiatry has. If the {{{doc}}} decides you are crazy or a 'threat' or believe too many conspiracy theories, they can put you in legal holds or put you away. It is very scary, because pretty much anyone on this site could easily be deemed 'insane' or a threat and locked away for a while. I had a women friend who was Christian and redpilled herself, and somehow got wrapped up in psychiatry and they put her in an institute for over a month for her beliefs.

Dr. Peter Breggin's book, "Your Drug May Be Your Problem," is a must-read for further study on this matter. Dr. Breggin helpfully points out that our physicians do not test for low serotonin levels in the brain before prescribing SSRIs to those suffering from depression. Instead, doctors employ circular reasoning and see depression in and of itself as evidence that the patient's brain suffers from low serotonin levels. Having made this diagnosis, the doctors prescribe SSRIs which are designed to create a chemical imbalance in the brain by increasing serotonin levels in the brain.

Dr. Breggin cites numerous examples of people becoming violent after having altered their brain chemistry with SSRIs. Let's not forget that the 29 April 1999 issue of the Washington Post reported that at least one of the Columbine High School shooters was taking an SSRI-type antidepressant drug.

The book could have been better had it included detailed instructions for tapering off SSRIs, perhaps vitamins/supplements help? I've heard that 5-HTP can help with the brain zaps (do not mix 5-HTP with SSRIs).

I'm sure that many forum members would also appreciate resources/ideas with respect to repairing damage to the brain caused by SSRI use.

If anyone knows whether it's possible to measure serotonin levels in the brain, please post a source (I'm curious).

Welp, sadly I belonged to the 1 in 5 statistic for a while. The doctor tried to pair my “depression” with “paranoia” because I lived in the basement of an old house with creeky windows and in response to one of his many questions I told him that sometimes I was worried there would be an animal in the basement. LOL .
Lol! This is hilarious.

Here’s an interesting character from recent history I came across, one Charles Binet-Sanglé.
He was a “psychologist” who wrote a book in the 19th century called ‘la folie de Jesus’
(the folly of Jesus). He used his materialistic worldview to label our Lord as merely a human who was mentally ill.
Here’s something else about this man that is not at all shocking; his other notable work was titled ‘Le Haras Humain’ (the human stud-farm).
This illustrious and philanthropic work is about (you guessed it)…eugenics!
There seems to be an obvious pattern the more one investigates these types of people and their work.

One of the interesting points phased out of history is that when evolution was trying to be introduced into American schools in the 20s, the objection was not necessarily "against" evolution but because eugenics was pushed in with it (think CRT nowadays, but worse). The Scopes Monkey Trial was a big show trial to try to paint all those who disagreed as ignorant religious idiots.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/397478.Better_for_All_the_World this is a really good book about the topic of eugenics and forced sterilization in America (and the source for the above claim).
