Biological Psychiatry—Greatest Health Care Fraud in History

In Revising Book On Disorders Of the Mind, Benedict Carey (NY Times, A-1, February 10, 2010) writes, “Far fewer children would get a diagnosis of bipolar disorder.”  Were this to result from a re-write of psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), Rebecca Riley of Hull, Massachusetts, diagnosed ADHD and ‘bipolar at 2 ½ years of age, multiply drugged and dead at 4, might still be alive today.  I am a physician (a neurologist), who like all real physicians diagnoses and treats organic/physical diseases—demonstrable abnormalities–gross (a mass, tumor), microscopic (cancer cells) or chemical (diabetes, gout, PKU).  Whether a physical abnormality is present or not determines whether a disease is present or not—the physical abnormality is the disease.  Nor is this ever altered by a rewrite of or any article or text, as is characteristic of psychiatry.  Because psychiatrists go to medical school, learn of things normal, abnormal (diseases, pathology) and how to tell the difference (diagnosis), their legerdemain leads the naïve, trusting, public-at-large to believe that the ‘diseases’/ ‘disorders’/ ‘chemical imbalances’ they diagnose from their magical DSM are actual diseases and that the poisons they reflexively prescribe actually balance a chemical imbalance within the brain that these charlatans neither know or understand.  Nor are they interested any longer in understanding the Mind that Carey’s title references.

Medications and medication checks are what they are all about today, which with no disease/abnormality to make normal or more nearly so, are exogenous chemicals put into the normal body and brain (as in Rebecca Riley’s)—poisons.  In fact, all drugs are poisons.  Only those that make a disease/abnormality normal or more nearly normal can be called medications (e.g., insulin for diabetes, penicillin for an infection).  Carey continues: “For months they (revisions) have been the subject of intense speculation and lobbying by advocacy groups…” Since when do physicians determine diagnoses by the “lobbying of advocacy groups…”?  I never did.  Do cardiologists?  Cancer specialists?  Will advocacy groups determine your diagnoses?  Your child’s?  “Your treatment?” Psychiatrist Michael First, an editor of the DSM-IV, states, “Anything you put in that book, any little change you make, has huge implications not only for psychiatry but for pharmaceutical marketing, research, for the legal system, for who’s considered to be normal or not, for whose considered disabled… the more disorders you put in, the more people get labels…” If this does not send shivers down your spine you are asleep or already drugged.  Psychiatrist, Jack McClellan of the University of Washington confessed, “The treatment of bipolar disorder is meds first, meds second and meds third…” Exactly Rebecca Riley’s prescription.

On Nov 10, 2008, Supriya Sharma, Director General of Health Canada (like our FDA) wrote  “For mental/psychiatric disorders in general, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and ADHD, there are no confirmatory gross, microscopic or chemical abnormalities that have been validated for objective physical diagnosis…” On March 12, 2009, Donald Dobbs of the FDA reluctantly confessed, “I consulted with the FDA new drug review division responsible for approving psychiatric drug products and they concurred with the response you enclosed from Health Canada.”  In other words, ‘no disease’!  And yet the CDC reports that 4.5 million children 5-17 years of age were diagnosed with ADHD as of 2006 and that diagnoses were increasing at 3% per year.  Diagnoses of so-called ‘childhood bipolar disorder’ rose from zero in the mid-nineties to between 2 and 3 million today, largely due to the disease-mongering efforts of Biederman, et al of the Harvard/Massacheusetts General Hospital Department of Pediatric Psychopharmacology.

In 2009 Gould et al reported that that the rate of sudden cardiac deaths in children on amphetamines/psychostimulants for the fraudulent, non-existent ‘disease’ ADHD is 7.4 times as prevalent as in children taking no such medication, while Ray et al reported that the rate of sudden cardiac deaths in adults on antipsychotics is twice that in a normal control population.

If one poison doesn’t get you that the next one will.  Or, as in the case of Rebecca Riley, are we doomed by diagnosis—374 of them in the DSM-IV.  How many there will be in the 2013, DSM-V?

Physicians are supposed to diagnose and treat diseases—physical abnormalities, and they are supposed to be patient advocates.  Here we learn that psychiatrists do not diagnose or treat actual diseases and that that they advocate not for their patients but for Big Pharma—the pharmaceutical industry.  They are, in fact, an arm of Big Pharma and of government and will control us with their diagnoses and drugs whenever asked to do so and whenever more profit is called for.

Their disease-mongering insists that one in four adults—approximately 57.7 million Americans— experience a mental health disorder in a given year, that one in 17 lives with a serious mental illness and that one in 10 children live with a serious mental or emotional disorder.

Will you sit still for diagnosis and drugging?  Are we lemmings or what?

  1. Five stars ! Sorry mouse clicked over 1 . Psychiatry and its drugs made me sick for years, I actualy belived it was medical. I like to say I SURVIVED psychiatry.

  2. Psychiatry is all about fraud, abuse of power, and compete and utter hypocrisy. They’ve turned over a million American children (and millions more adults) into bipolar / schizophrenics – completely with drugs – in the past several decades. Despite this technically being malpractice, according to their own DSM “bible.” It’s sickening.

    They need to be held accountable. Thank you for the article. And I agree, Biederman, and perhaps all unrepentant psychiatrists, belong in hell for what they did.

  3. A big part of the problem is the marketed reality clothing terminology. The reality is that there is a toxic chemical cartel industry, from toxic chemical production/distribution/misinformation/sales (clothed with the term “drug companies” etc) to poison offering/imposing/coercing (clothed with the terms “psychiatry”, “nursing”, “pharmacy” etc) to living catacomb poison forced ingestion buildings (clothed with the term “mental hospital” etc), whilst abused/neglected/traumatized when younger homeo sapians who have repressed/unspokenof emotions from that time of trauma ingest variably enormous quantities of highly toxic chemicals disrupting the thoughtflow+emotionflow from instantaneous to very slow irreversibly with a tiny hope that a cure for this will be found in the near future ; my best guess being that this results from clogging the limbic system.

    Psychiatry term origin
    Greek psukhē breath, soul, mind + iatreia art of healing (from iatros healer).

    Those who refer to themselves as psychiatrists in the world now are not by definition psychiatrists (99.9999999% of the time). The real soul healers are being maimed and discarded clothed with the term “mentally ill”. http://www.madinamerica.com/2015/06/can-madness-save-the-world/

    In age 65+ each year, the previously mentioned sorts of toxic chemicals mass exterminate more than 0.5million homeo sapians in US/Europe, half the dead bodies per year rate of the holocaust.

    I wonder what would happen if the so named psychiatrists and so named patients in a so named mental hospital swapped positions. I think the toxic chemicals would be forbidden, the so named mental hospitals would be abolished or drastically reinvigorated, the so named psychiatrists and so named nurses would be shamed and shunned, and efforts to find the cures for the toxic chemical effects would be made a top priority.

  4. What a mess, and I’m a patient. I know it’s time to pray for Paris, but if you could have anything else to help. Thanks for thinking anyway.
