you reap the whirlwind…
A quick note from Jenny:
Those of us in the Psychiatric Survivor Community have watched this most recent assassination in Arizona with a sort of detached horror.
Many of us have been speaking out for so long that we have grown weary, and even numb, to yet another atrocity likely connected in some form or fashion to psychiatric medications.
It has not yet been reported which psychiatric medications have been ingested during the life of the shooter, the media seem to want to pin this one on Pot and illegal drugs.
But I want his full psychiatric history going back to his early childhood to be fully disclosed in the press, and I am calling on the authorities handling this case to make certain this one is not covered up the way that the Virginia Tech shooter was.
I was on my Facebook page today and came across this image posted by one of my friends:
As a former Bradley Childbirth Educator I was incensed that this type of attitude exists in American Obstetrics, not surprised, just enraged.
You Medical people claim to care about our “Welfare” and the health of our unborn children???
And yet you refuse to work with parents who have been educated on how to give birth to their children without drugs?
We are sowing the wind with our children with the use of all of these medications; Pregnancy and Birth Drugs, Psychiatric Meds while breastfeeding, Vaccines, Antibiotics, and Behavioral Meds when their little bodies and minds reel from the toxic overload.
Sometimes I feel so sickened by the lies, I just want to scream in frustration.
It is time for parents to throw off the shackles that bind them. No more Medical Slavery for us or our families.
Two stories blazed across the headlines today…
The House of Representatives voted to overturn the healthcare bill and World Net Daily is reporting that the new Governor of Hawaii can’t find Obamas Birth Certificate.
What this means is that every piece of legislation that the fake President has voted on these past two years is null and void and the deadly Mothers Act is dead in the water…now we just need to send his foreign ass out of the White House in the biggest Ass Kicking America has ever seen.
No more Medical Slavery and Global Medical Fascism!

- Jenny Hatch after two years of “treatment”
I just finished watching two hours of sunday morning talk shows. I stayed home from church this morning because of illness and enjoyed clicking around listening to all of the blather. Health Care is front and center in all of this debate and it was interesting to hear all of the various arguments and see all of the familiar faces and voices sharing views.
For me the summation of all of these views are rolled into the picture that my husband took of me in 1990. I share this with all of you so that the look on my face and the total blunting of my emotions that was captured in this picture can stand as a witness to the folly of chemical treatments for women.
As a teen I was grounded in medicine by the lifestyle lived by my family and my desire to become a nurse when I was an adult. I made steps towards that goal by studying to be a medical assistant in high school and working in a medical office as a teen. As I witnessed the medical profession up close and worked for a year with doctors, nurses, and observed the drug reps doing their thing, one thing became very clear to me during my year of being a part of the Medical Profession.
That being, I had zero desire to be a part of the Medical Profession as an adult. I am so grateful to have had that experience at such a tender age. It opened my eyes in ways that an outsider just can’t observe. And it fueled my desire to pursue my singing and acting unfettered by the emotional need to do something “practical” when I went away to BYU to study Musical Theatre.
I was always a “sickie” as a child and have struggled mightily with my health for most of my adult life. I suppose those of us who have interfaced most with the doctors and the drug companies who have trained them have the most significant testimony to offer as the health care debate rages.
If I thought for one second that what is being offered at taxpayer expense in the new health care bill would do one positive thing for families over the long haul, I might pause in my Free Market views and consider that perhaps an investment in our nations health would be a good thing.
Since the status quo of medicine as it is practiced today is what will be entrenched with this bill, I have to yell to anyone listening that Medical Slavery for the vast majority of our people is what will be practiced on the American Family for the next ten generations…if we make it that far. With death, disibility, infertility, damaged babes, trauma, and a “pill for all that ails us” funded by the taxpayers the fruit of this abortion of a bill, we have to pray that with the election of Scott Brown, and his 41st vote, it will go down to defeat as the last and final attempt by the Commies in our Country to rob the American People of their sovereignty and force a Medical Dictatorship and Pharmacuetical Facism on the Men, Women, and Children of the US.
Rather than handing the pharma companies a fifty year guarantee of profits, the attorney general of the US should be serving them with papers of indictment for the past hundred years of medical fraud perpetrated on the American People and force them to refund every person medically damaged by Vaccines, Antibiotics, Bogus and unnecessary surgery, court ordered psychiatric meds, forced chemo, and the thousands of children pulled from their parents homes and put into foster care simply because parents refused to accept current medical dogma should be returned to their homes, detoxed from the psychiatric drugs they have been forced to take, and compensated financially for all of the side effects that the toxicity of the drugs caused.
The Fox is in the hen house and the Farmer has just come out and asked him if he wants that chicken baked or fried. It is time to shoot the Fox and set the hens free.
- Jenny Hatch 2001
Every positive step towards health that I have taken for myself and my family has come with taking personal responsibility, paying for my own books, supplements, alternative healing doctors, and by freeing myself from Medical Slavery.
As I have learned self sufficiency as related to my Mothering, the Medical Profession has stood as a very large barrier to me reaching Freedom. But this Goliath of a profession that was built on lies and is supported by the most devious and insipid media propaganda is simply a paper tiger that when finally torched with go up in smoke. As A health freedom writer I have all of the matches, gasoline, and molotov cocktails necessary to get the job done.
Please join me in the burning of the Medical Cartel in the coming weeks and months!

On anniversaries of significant things in my life I usually pay closer attention to what’s going on in the world around me and think about how to move forward and make changes for the better or appreciate what I have. This Saturday I had a nice day with family and friends and I considered writing about that anniversary… one of the worst days of my life. I thought about writing about how it felt to have my heart ripped out as my family left their too-short visit with me in the mental ward to go back to my house without me and I couldn’t hold my own baby or be with him, and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. I remember Joel telling me on the phone while I was in the hospital that Isaac cried, seemed to miss me, and was somewhat inconsolable for much of the night.
Sunday was the anniversary of my release from the psych ward. I could write pages about how it felt getting out, but it can basically be summed up in a few sentences. I was humiliated and ashamed. I was traumatized. I was thankful to be out and with my baby. I felt free, yet I felt scared – terrified of myself and what I might do. I was angry at having been a prisoner even though I did nothing wrong. I was disgusted by the utter mistreatment I had been through.
Today I have to remember to check for the TIME Magazine July 20 edition so I can have a few hard copies for safe keeping. You know, to save them from the bonfire ceremonies in back yard barbecue grills around the country. I’m also expecting that there will be more hateful or misinformed blog entries that I will read in the blogosphere about The MOTHERS Act and how it will “hurt no one” and “save lives” and “your children will thank you for it.” And despite lies like this I will speak the truth and hope someone who needs to hear it will listen.
Some times I feel like I accomplished something good, and think, I can sit back for a while and just enjoy my life for a change and not constantly be thinking of the next thing I need to do. And then I look at Matthew’s picture, or Indiana’s picture, or Manie’s videos, or I get a chance to talk to Christian or Christiane or Amery. Or I get a random phone call pleading for help from a mom whose child is being drugged in foster care or in a psych hospital. I feel a sense of responsibility to do anything I can to help them get their stories out there or to help get things resolved for them. But mostly I feel like I owe it to the babies who are in danger right now to do all that I can to help them.
I’ve been thinking about how people accuse our side of saying PPD “isn’t real” – which is an obvious twist on the fact that we do state that the drugs are so dangerous that we don’t feel it’s justifiable for people to go blithely around promoting them. But that does not make the suffering of women any less real or less important. It’s important to take a step back and think about how to help all these people who may or may not be on drugs. Some of the PPD bloggers write that meds are a crucial part of treatment and self help cannot cure all cases. I can somewhat agree with the last part – that “self help” cannot cure all cases – if by self help we’re talking about reading books and taking baths and other methods of relaxation / self-training. Because in my case, all the self help in the world was not going to cure what the drugs did to me. Only removing the drugs was going to make me totally better. It’s true I never should have started them in the first place, but I did, and I suffered for four + months because of it. But I also have a very hard time imagining that the majority of cases could not be helped with “self care” alone, considering how much self help helped me out while I was insane.
In the remaining cases I think women need to see an alternative practitioner or do a lot of research into alternatives, and not simply see a drug prescribing doctor to get drugs. This would not fall under the category of “self-help” in my opinion. Since when does alternative medicine get forgotten and it’s like it’s a choice between taking toxic poison and reading a book?
I’ve written about this before but if you just google orthomolecular medicine you can learn about how people have cured things like schizophrenia with megadoses of vitamins. Also google Soteria houses (these are places where people with schizophrenia go to get well without drugs). Both these strategies can help people get better without neuroleptics. Also I know that Jenny Hatch has a lot of knowledge, as do several people I know, including Dr. Tracy, about the use of essential oils being applied to the skin to help with all sorts of health ailments. Since the oils are concentrated herbs etc. they apparently work very quickly. You might check out Jenny’s other blog for more on that.
Now as for self-help:
I thought I would just share a couple of book titles here. These are the books that I read while I was on Zoloft and trying to figure out a way to escape from the frightening thoughts I was having. I taught myself meditation and spent a lot of time praying and it did help me. Ultimately only going off of Zoloft would take the thoughts away but having these tools helped me during a desperate time. So in addition to having supervision from a family member at all times, I spent those months learning things that I’ll never forget. Whenever I get upset about something I just remember that during those times when I would pray, I felt like there was strength coming to me and protecting us because of the words I prayed. So I can always depend on that strength no matter what is going on.
One of the books I read was called How Long Til’ My Soul Gets it Right and it was a series of essays about life and the spirit. It’s been so long since I read it I cannot recall the details but I remember reading it and feeling more peaceful.
Also, Anxiety and Panic Attacks by Robert Handly. This book taught me meditation and relaxation techniques that I used to de-stress any time I had a bad thought. I told myself, I am in control. No matter what my mind was telling me to do, my mind was not going to make my body do those things. Any type of stressful thought I had, I would try to practice one of the relaxation techniques and focus on an image in my mind that I created involving a happy memory I had in a beautiful place I had been before my life had been turned upside down. I created a “dream” that I could go to if only for a short time, where everything is perfect and it always was and always would be.
It may not have been reality, but it was a better thought than the thoughts I could have allowed myself to focus on. I would recommend doing that if you are a mother going psycho on drugs. It could possibly help in the time you are suffering, until you are able to be well again.
I can only hope that I am doing as many things right in my life and in this world as I possibly can. Although any day may be our last, feeling like there is still much work to be done makes it easier to have faith in the future. If we all do our part hopefully the world will soon be a better place than it is today.
P.S. for the sake of the paranoid anti-informed consent bloggers out there – no, I don’t get any money from recommending those books or that you read up on essential oils. The only money I earn is anything I save when my husband gives me cash each week. LOL I’m officially a useless sponge in the wet sea of life.
Please feel free to add any other suggestions here or on this other article on the blog specifically covering PPD prevention and safe treatment.

Amy Philo invited me to be a blogger at The Bitter Pill this week and I am so grateful to have another forum to share my thoughts with yet another audience.
I have strong objections to the direction we are headed as a world with our dependence on drugs and surgery.
My life experiences have taught me that Natural Mothering and Natural Family Living are where families can find real joy, prosperity, and health.
I thought I would use this post to share a link to another place on the web where parents can go to find good information and help as they wean from the medical profession.
The main focus of my writings these past few years have been to focus on PREVENTION of post partum emotional illness. To that end I have written extensively on nutrition, natural birth, and have freely shared my story and my experiences in books, videos, and my blog
My sites have been hacked numerous times, I have been intimidated and threatened in chat rooms and in various settings, and sometimes wonder if I am putting myself and my children in danger of being snuffed out by a powerful group of people who do not like what I have to say. I guess the only thing I would like to say about the reality of ugly, murderous thugs, who feel they can intimidate and rob me of my free speech is that I will not live in fear. I refuse to lose any sleep worrying about Big Pharma bullies.
There is a war on wether you the reader know it or not. A war for the hearts and minds of our families. I will continue to speak my truth and share my stories and be politically active, because if we don’t expose the agendas, conspiracies, and goals of the death merchants, our children and grandchildren will be so drugged and doped and disabled they won’t be able to function as normal human beings.
If you are a mother who has experienced birth rape and trauma when your children are being born, I would challenge you to look closely at your lifestyle and see what changes could be made in your home. You have far more power than you realize to grasp your sovereignty as a woman and live an empowered life.
I have researched post partum emotional illness for many years and the biggest bang for your buck comes with the Aryuvedic Mother/Baby program. Many of the principles of this protocol can be implemented with very little outlay of cash on the part of the family. The biggest issue is getting educated about what the true needs of a new mother are and then you and your family can work diligently to set up a scenario where these realities are honored and that sacred window of healing is opened. Ysha Oakes is the pioneer in this field. She took care of me after the birth of my fourth child and she trained my doula Amy Thompson who is pictured below and took care of me for weeks after the birth of my fifth child. Nurturing massage and easy to digest foods carefully rebuild the new mother on every level of her being.
I would challenge anyone reading this post to look into it and spend some quality time thinking about simple changes that could be made in your daily life to help you heal naturally without the toxic side effects of drugs, electroshock, separation from your children in a mental hospital, and/or useless talk therapy which stirs the pot but does absolutely nothing to heal a womans sleep deprived or birth traumetized body.
