History of Mental Illness: Elderly Man Sets Self on Fire, Rams Car Into Police Station

A MAN after he set himself on fire drove his flaming vehicle filled with gas bombs into the Merrylands police station’s underground carpark. No one else was injured in the car-bomb attack when the man rammed the vehicle into the carpark about 7pm. Amazingly he survived and is in custody.

At least it appears that police officers in Australia recognize insanity when they see it instead of jumping on the terrorist bandwagon!!! “It is understood he is well-known to police, but has no known links to terror groups.”

…”Assistant Commissioner Denis Clifford said although they do not believe he has any links to terror groups, they are “keeping an open mind” throughout the investigation.

“Initial inquiries suggest there are no links to any groups,” he said.

It is absolutely amazing that the bombs did not go off and this man survived! Elevated serotonin has long been associated with pyromania (fire starting). If on one of these drugs, and with a history of mental illness it would be an even bigger miracle if he had not been given either an antidepressant or an atypical antipsychotic which both increase levels of serotonin, he and his family deserve to know the truth about what really happened to him!

DIABETES? OFF INSULIN IN ONLY ONE MONTH!!! (VIDEO)

 

Shooting insulininsulin bottle

 

AN EXCELLENT VIDEO EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH!

I am sure you have all heard the insulin excuse used for a reason to continue to take antidepressants for years. “Would you have someone stop taking insulin?” Keep in mind that this story came from Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac AND the largest distributor of insulin. As a result they are making lots and lots and lots of money because the longer you stay on an antidepressant the greater the chances are that you will develop diabetis as a side effect and think you then will need insulin for life.  So this is one piece of information you really need in your arsenal of responses to this argument which I have waited far too long to find a minute to share with you.

THE TREE OF LIFE CENTER & DR. GABRIEL COUSINS

The Tree of Life Center US was set up by Dr. Gabriel Cousins, a psychiatrist from back East. In my opinion Dr. Cousins is one of the most brilliant healers of our day! I have followed his work for years. He is also among the first medical professionals to order a copy of my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?, when it first came out in the mid 90’s

With current conditions…

… the huge  increase of sugar consumption jumping from 5 pounds per person per year in the early 1900’s to 180 pounds per person each year currently

… so many eating so many dairy products that greatly contribute to the number of diabetics

….the high consumption of aspartame (a serotonergic chemical)

… the high consumption of serotonergic chemicals like antidepressants and many other psychiatric drugs (which drop  sugar levels leading to both hypoglycemia and then diabetes)

…our nation is now inundated with those who have pancreatic damage manifesting in many varied blood sugar issues, and especially diabetes. (And if you have read my book you know I would add Anxiety, Depression and Bipolar Disorder to that list of blood sugar issues.)

I am excited that Dr. Gabriel Cousins is focusing on this issue to show people that dietary changes CAN make these people healthy again. Insulin is NOT something people have to continue taking which will only cut their lives far shorter and kill them in the end! In speaking with a friend this past week he said his father is now taking TEN medications, including antidepressants and anti seizure medications, so the father’s diabetes is so bad that he has to take a shot every time he eats! If I had to do that I would lose every meal I had just eaten because that is the way I react to needles. Why would anyone choose to live that way when less than a month at Dr. Cousin’s center can put that all behind you?

WATCH THE VIDEO OF GETTING RID OF INSULIN IN ONLY A MONTH

Please share this with all those who need to know there is hope of recovery. Contrary to what Pharma would have you believe no one NEEDS insulin! There are God given, natural ways to overcome disease! Never give up hope of finding those ways to heal yourself of anything!

MEDS? Dallas Police Shooting: Ron Paul Asking The Right Questions

dallas police shooting3

 

Once again a vet is behind violence…why so much of it among vets?…why so many suicides among vets? (Last count it was 22 per day committing suicide with those deaths going over the number killed in combat for the past seven years now.) It can all be traced right back to the mass drugging of our military and continued drugging of the vets by the VA once they return home. For years we have had reports of vets being given up to 20 drugs a day – most of them mind altering. And this has been going on for at least two and a half decades. (You can go to our database of thousands of cases like today’s shooting at www.SSRIstories.NET to find more of these mass shootings by vets all on these deadly drugs known to produce violence and suicide.)

At least one politician, Ron Paul, knows enough to ask the right questions. Had Ron Paul been elected in 2008 these drugs may have been off the market before this shooting today and before oh so many others thereby saving many lives. What a shame!

Deadly Drugs –www.SSRIstories.NET

SSRIstories.NET is a database of the cases our group at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has gathered over the past 2 1/2 decades, including nearly every school shooter and mass shooter in the country. The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in the court cases and should be. (Tragically in this case that is no longer an option.) Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO

INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly. Feel free to join us on Facebook to learn more about this disorder on our Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883/

URGENT TODAY!!! STOP HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis!!!!!

Baby and Pups

Baby With His Safe and Effective Antidepressants

Although it is rare that I send information out from another group, in this instance I believe this is such a critical subject and such a tragic situation worldwide currently that MUST be not only addressed but must be stopped dead in its tracks! The drugging of infants and toddlers with mind altering medications! Within the past couple of weeks  I have seen the most recent stats out of  New Zealand forwarded  region by region. And what I found the most shocking was the HUGE jump in the use of mind altering medications among this young age group!!!! They went from double to ten times an increase in numbers depending upon the region!

This bill being voted on today could do that same here in America. There is no valid excuse for this drugging of infants!  It needs to stop!  The summer of 1998 I wrote an article  titled, The Next Generation Medical Guinea Pigs–Our Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil Babies,  which ran in both of the major newspapers in Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News because this insane prescribing of these drugs to infants and toddlers began there in the early 90’s.  That article from nearly two decades ago can be found on our website at the following link:  http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-babies/

LIST OF CONGRESSIONAL COSPONSORS FOR THIS BILL

Here is a list of Congressional cosponsors of the bill state by state who likely have no idea whatsoever what it is they are actually supporting. It would be a good idea to contact all of them to wake them up to what these drugs are doing to our society and our future: https://www.congress.gov/…/house-bill/2646/cosponsors

PLEASE CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN TODAY BEFORE VOTE THIS AFTERNOON

As you may know, a highly controversial bill, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis” is going to the House of Representative floor for a vote, tomorrow, July 6th and 1:30 pm Eastern Time.

The entire bill is designed to benefit the mental health industry, and not the general public.   Given the late notice on this bill going to the floor, we are asking all supporters to email their Congressional Representatives on just one major flaw of a massively flawed bill,   the section focusing on labeling and drugging children.

Specifically, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis”

Includes a section that focuses on increasing mental health treatment for infants and young children birth to 5 years of age.

The bill provides grants to train pediatric primary care providers to identify, diagnose, treat, and refer children with mental illness (there are no objective medical tests to diagnose any mental illness) and to develop programs for infants and children under 5 years of age who are at risk of developing a mental illness, show early signs of mental illness, or have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Subtitle C, Sec. 399Z-2 “Infants and Early Childhood Mental Health Promotion, Intervention, and Treatment” provides for a statewide network of psychiatrists to provide “telehealth” consultations to pediatricians. This is dangerous, given the current standard treatment in the mental health field is psychotropic drugs. Children’s brains are still developing until the age of 24.

Already in the U.S., 1 million infants and young children birth to 5 years of age in America are on a psychotropic drug, according to the latest figures from IMS Health.   You can view the total number of children on psychiatric drugs here with the figures from IMS Health

Please vote against HR 2646; it may do more harm than help.  You can find the emails for your Congressmen herehttp://www.contactingthecongress.org/

In Jesus’ name,  Amen!

As never before in the history of this country has this plea been so necessary.
In God We Still Trust and we pray that GOD WILL BLESS AMERICA!!!!

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: UT 16 Year Old Charged as Adult for Double Murder in Suicidal Crash

Marilee Gardner crash

Marilee Gardner, 16, survived, Tyler Christianson, 19, and Maddison Hann, 20 Died

A 16-year-old girl has been charged with two counts of 1st degree murder for allegedly causing a crash on purpose that killed two people Thursday in Roy, Utah. Of course she was being treated for depression and had recently been hospitalized which makes anyone wonder if she had a recent medication change greatly increasing her chances of a serious adverse reaction like this. The FDA warned when they issued the Black Box Warnings for increased suicide in those under 18 who take antidepressants that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can produce suicide, hostility and/or psychosis.

To be charged at age 16 with a double charge of first degree murder for a suicide attempt is one of the harshest charges I have seen in 25 years of working on these cases!

“Marilee Patricia Gardner was charged in state court in Ogden with two counts of first-degree-felony murder and two third-degree felonies for failure to stop at the command of police and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

“Gardner was traveling about 100 mph in a 45 mph zone early Thursday when she rear-ended a sedan with her SUV, sending the car into a traffic signal pole….Gardner stole her parents’ SUV earlier in the evening with the intent to meet a 17-year-old friend; the two planned to take drugs and crash the car as part of a “suicide pact”

“She also has a history of being suicidal and was recently hospitalized for treatment, according to the charges.

“Several of Gardner’s neighbors said Friday they were shocked to hear what happened. Some said that they knew the girl had been battling depression and other problems. But all of the neighbors the Deseret News spoke with had high praise for Gardner’s parents, saying they have been trying for some time to help her.”


Jeanette slwininski

DeJa Vu – Jeanette Sliwinski – Three Dead in Suicidal Crash

How horrible that this Utah case  is almost identical to this crash in Chicago in 2005, also caused by all the drugs they call “medications” and hand out like candy to these kids when they KNOW the drugs DOUBLE suicidal ideation (compulsions) in this age group!!!! Had anyone really listened in Jeanette’s case this new case and oh so many others could have been prevented and many lives spared!

Seroquel, Sinequan, Zoloft and Klonopin is the list of drugs Jeanette Sliwinski, 23, a model, was taking to help her sleep when she ran three red lights and then plowed into a stopped vehicle in a suicide attempt. Jeanette was removed unharmed from the wreckage as she screamed, “I just wanna die!, I just wanna die. you don’t understand!” 

The crash killed three popular musicians who all worked together,  and were just on their way to lunch, Michael Dahlquist, 39, Douglas Meis, 29, and John Glick, 35, all of Chicago. PLEASE be careful and alert tomorrow on your way to lunch or wherever you are going as you never know who might have recently been released from a Psych Hospital or might have run out of meds and is having an abrupt change in dose as a result.

Here is a link to Jeanette’s case out of our SSRIstroies.NET database of cases…..

Memorial for Tyler and Madi in Latest Utah Suicide Crash

In 2004 the FDA issued warning about the doubling of suicidal ideation in youth and teens but with the continued widespread prescribing of antidepressants to youth you would never know there should be any concern about doing so!!! Why? Why? Why? Why FDA did you not ban these deadly drugs with both homicidal and suicidal ideation (compulsive thoughts and action) at that time or any time since then. This is long overdue! How can you consider “medications” with suicide and homicide warnings as safe and effective?

Mental Illness, Texas Mom, Gun Advocate, Kills Two Daughters, Shot By Police

Christy Sheats

Christy Sheats

Late Friday afternoon on Jason Sheats birthday, his wife Christy Sheats (42), shot and killed their two daughters, Taylor Sheats (22), and Madison Sheats (17). As their mother began shooting in the house Madison and Taylor were forced to fire back in order to defend themselves. As police arrived Christy pointed her gun at officers and was shot and killed. Jason Sheats was able to get out fast enough to avoid being harmed.

As you can see from the pictures of Christy what has become known as the “Prozac Eyes” are prominent in all photos. She has been reported as having a “mental illness.” Of course if you have followed my work to understand antidepressant-induced psychosis and violence you know that I would attribute both her “mental illness” and her violence to the use of serotonergic medications (antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, etc.). These drugs  have saturated our society over the past three decades now where we have learned to accept school shootings, mass shootings, mothers killing their children, as “normal” and every third person on the planet as Bipolar while the drugs are rarely singled out as the cause even though their package inserts admit it!

‘The Texas woman who killed her two daughters on Friday, before being shot and killed by police herself, allegedly had a history of mental illness, officials say. And she had posted multiple times on social media about her support of firearms.

“The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office had been to Christy Sheats’ home “for previous altercations” involving Sheats’ “mental crisis,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Caitilin Espinosa tells PEOPLE.

“She declined to provide more detail about those incidents.’

Taylor, Christy, and Madison Sheats

My Reply to the  “Of Course It Couldn’t Be the Guns, Could It?” Comment

Yes you are correct because if the gun was not available Christy could have walked to the kitchen to obtain the same type of weapon young McCann Utu II, used in Plano in April to stab to death his younger brother and his mother before calling 911 to report it as he then stabbed himself to death.

Or she could have used a pillow to smother them in their sleep as the famed pianist Vadym Kholodenko’s  estranged wife, Sofya Tsygankova, has been charged with doing in March in the Ft Worth area to take the lives of their two small daughters before attempting to stab herself to death with a kitchen knife.

The connection in all these cases has little to do with “mental illness” but everything to do with the drugs handed out like candy for any symptom one could think of – antidepressants. McCann on Prozac only three months, in spite of the fact he had two serious head injuries which should have made the drug contraindicated in my opinion. And Sofia on Zoloft, with Seroquel added just the day before the double murder/suicide attempt. We only await to hear which of these drugs Christy Shears had been taking before taking the lives of the two most precious people in her life as McCann and Sofia have done.

Why we continue to allow this group of drugs, now with warnings of both homicidal and suicidal compulsive thoughts and actions for over a decade, to remain on the market is beyond me! And we call them “medications”?!! How many more must die before we wake up and say “Enough FDA! Do what should have been done long before all these precious lives were destroyed! ‘Safe and effective’ is NOT a label we will accept on drugs known to produce homicide, suicide and psychosis!”?

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & HEAD INJURY: TEEN STABBED MOTHER , BROTHER & SELF TO DEATH

Obit for Mac, Josiah, Stacy

This morning I awoke very early to a message from Jay Baadsgard, a father in Washington state who has been through an antidepressant nightmare with his own son and feels for parents going through similar situations. Jay serves as our Southern Washington State Director for the International Coalition for Drugawareness (www.drugawareness.org and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DRUGAWARENESS/)

Jay’s message contained an article about a Dallas/Ft Worth area teen, McCann L. Utu ll, 19, who stabbed to death two people who meant the world to him, his mother Stacy Fawcett, 45, and younger brother Josiah L. Utu, 17. He then called 911 while stabbing himself to death. From what I have learned about McCann and his mother, and his brother, they would all want what happened to them to be a warning to others about the potential dangers of these drugs so that many more lives might be spared a tragically similar fate.

The link to that article with information on McCann’s head injuries and antidepressant use and the tragic loss of yet another beautiful family can be found here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3577946/Autopsy-reveals-teen-killed-mother-brother-fatally-stabbing-anti-depressants-abnormalities-brain.html

Jay explaining with his son, Corey, 16, what happened to him when he took a gun to school can be found here and it is a very enlightening step into what is happening to the patient on the medications when these deadly toxic reactions hit: http://www.drugawareness.org/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1/

ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND HEAD INJURIES

According to McCann’s father he had taken Prozac for the past three months before this tragic reaction.

One very important issue that far too many are yet unaware of is that antidepressants should never be given to someone who has had a head injury and yet how many military with head injuries are being given these drugs? That is a warning Dr. Jay Seastrunk, a psychiatrist who has worked with brain injuries for the past several decades, made very clear to me back in the mid 90’s. I pointed out to him that if he was saying anyone who has ever had a head injury that would then include nearly everyone on the planet because we all learned to walk in the first year or two of life during which we all took many tumbles learning to do so.

Brain injury does play a critical role in this case, because with antidepressants on top of the head injury you have a recipe for total disaster. This is most likely because the main function of the anidepressant is to increase serotonin and the main function of serotonin is constriction of smooth muscle tissue. In so doing the antidepressant cuts off oxygen to the brain from two different directions: #1 The constricting the bronchial tubes thus impairing functioning of the lungs whose job it is to take in the necessary oxygen supply and #2 The constricting of the veins whose job it is to then carry the oxygen rich blood to the brain. This impairment of oxygen intake as well as oxygen delivery deprives the brain of the much needed oxygen to repair and heal the damage to the brain. Yet the only antidepressant I am aware of that actually carries strong warnings about head injury patients is Wellbutrin. The warning is associated with seizure activity. But many are not aware that rage and anger are known to be related to seizure activity and REM sleep is continuous mild seizure activity. So any drug that lowers the seizure threshold has the potential to increase the risk of all those reactions as well. (Read more on the REM Sleep Disorder below to get an idea of how significant a risk that is in these tragedies.)

That warning in the Wellbutrin package insert reads:

“The risk of seizure is also related to patient factors, clinical situations, and concomitant medications, which must be considered in selection of patients for therapy with WELLBUTRIN.

“Patient factors: Predisposing factors that may increase the risk of seizure with bupropion use include history of head trauma or prior seizure, CNS tumor, the presence of severe hepatic cirrhosis, and concomitant medications that lower seizure threshold.”

Now because antidepressants lower the seizure threshold keep in mind that mixing two of those could produce serious issues from this aspect of the increased potential of seizure activity. I am not talking about a full blown epileptic seizure, but the milder over activity within the brain itself as in the continuous mild seizure activity we would see in the dream state.

Deadly Drugs –www.SSRIstories.NET

SSRIstories.NET is a database of the cases our group at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has gathered over the past 2 1/2 decades, including nearly every school shooter and mass shooter in the country. The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in the court cases and should be. (Tragically in this case that is no longer an option.) Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:

http://www.drugawareness.org/wp-content/uploads/mice.jpg

1996 – Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence – An Excess Of Serotonin.

08/11/1996 – Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence – An Excess Of Serotonin, A Chemical That Helps Regulate Mood And Mental Health, Causes Mayhem


ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO

INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

BIPOLAR DISORDER: 50 DEAD, 53 WOUNDED IN WORST MASS SHOOTING IN AMERICA

WHERE ARE YOU FDA?!!!

WHY IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO HAVE “MEDICATIONS” ON THE MARKET WITH

HOMICIDAL/SUICIDAL IDEATIONS (COMPULSIONS) & PSYCHOSIS AS SIDE EFFECTS?!!

MY FACEBOOK POST FROM THIS MORNING: Orlando again?! Yet another antidepressant-induced mass killing? DO NOT let any mention of a possible terrorist attack keep you from asking questions. That seems to.be a great diversion tactic anymore. When you keep in mind several considerations you will see why I say that….

#1 The high number of antidepressant – induced cases of sexual preference changes. Serotonin is what determines sexual preference and I have additional new research to share with you on that besides the info from 2000 scientists back in 2000 who released the “canary in the coal mine” warning for mankind that the large amount of antidepressants in the water supply were causing male fish to be born with ovaries: http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/martharosenberg/drug-store-your-tap-water-and-fish-prozac

Serotonin determines sexual preference: http://www.pnas.org/content/110/24/9968.abstract

Science Can Change The Sexual Orientations Of Micehttp://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/05/study-science-can-change-the-sexual-orientations-of-mice/276311/

[At that point this morning we had no information as to whether the shooter himself might be gay or the other possibility that on antidepressants he was suffering delusions that he might be gay due the the adverse effects of the medications and had become paranoid that he may be becoming gay lashing out because of that.]

#2 The large majority of mass shootings committed by those on antidepressants as documented in this database of cases:www.SSRIstories.NET

#3 The all too common tendency those beginning to go insane on antidepressants often tend to join all kinds of fringe groups

#4 The statement of the Taliban psychiatrist in an interview with an LA Times reporter who told his patients, while standing in an office surrounded by drug company promotional material on antidepressants, that swallowing antidepressants is “like swallowing a little piece of God!” Here is that full article from the LA Times: http://articles.latimes.com/2002/mar/11/news/mn-32224

LATEST REPORT FROM THE DAILY MAIL ON SHOOTER

Keep in mind as you read this that even though antidepressants are absolutely notorious for producing all of the side effects that are associated with the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder (which is actually best described as a sleep/seizure disorder, rather than what they call a mental disorder) few doctors treat the symptoms of what they call Bipolar Disorder without an antidepressant, often combined with an anti-seizure medication. So the mention of this shooter having symptoms of Bipolar Disorder is a very huge indication that he was taking an antidepressant known to cause this type of violence.

“Speaking to reporters on Sunday evening with her fiance beside her, Yusufiy [ex-wife] said she thought the shooting had ‘nothing to do’ with religion and had more to do with mental illness.

“Yusufiy, who said she did not agree with Mateen’s views, revealed her ex-husband was mentally unstable and had bipolar disorder, yet wanted to become a police officer and had applied to the police academy.”

‘After a few months he started to beat me,’ she said. ‘He was mentally unstable… he was obviously disturbed. I know he had a history of [taking] steroids.
‘I was with him for about four months, then my family rescued me….

“Yusufiy said that Mateen owned a gun during their marriage, was ‘short tempered’ and would express ‘hate towards things’. She would not reveal if he had any homophobic views.

“Following a brief romance, the pair tied the knot in March 2009 and moved into a two-bedroom home owned by Mateen’s family in Fort Pierce.

“At the start of their relationship, she told the Washington Post, he was not particularly religious and was not violent. But soon things changed.

‘That’s when I started worrying about my safety and he was abusing me physically very often and not allowing me to speak to my family and he kept me hostage from them,’ she said during her press conference….

“Despite his violence, she said there was no sign he would go on to be a mass murder.

The shooter apparently called 911 and pledged his allegiance to the leader of ISIS. My response as that came out was to me it sounded manic and suicidal. When has ISIS ever called 911 to announce something like that before an attack?

“The shooter’s father Seddique Mateen said that his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.

“He added: ‘We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.’

HOW OFTEN IS BIPOLAR TRIGGERED BY ANTIDEPRESSANTS?

These drugs are producing a massive amount of manic reactions leading many to falsely be labeled Bipolar. You can listen to me explain that to the FDA and the widespread problems it is causing in our society, people’s personal lives, and in families around the world. As I discuss the work of Dr. Malcomb Bowers at Yale and he found in 2000 that a quarter of a million per year were being diagnosed as antidepressant-induced Bipolar every year in America back then. He and his colleagues went on to stress that most doctors do not recognize the antidepressant as being the cause of the Bipolar and, therefore, do not report it as such. The general rule of thumb for figuring the real number of side effects not reported is that less than 10% are reported which would indicate a figure of 2 1/2 million people every year! Is it any wonder the numbers of those diagnosed Bipolar increased by 400%in young people just from 1996 to 2004?! And if those figures are correct what are those numbers now, a decade and a half later?!

Update: Fentanyl Killed Prince – Medication Eighty Times Stronger Than Morphine

Prince4

Prince

Learn the serotonin connection in his death …. The toxicology released today on Prince shows he died of an overdose of the serotonergic pain killer Fentanyl. These drugs will often shut down the lungs as the serotonin constricts the broncial tubes. When it is eighty times stronger than morphine you have to ask what it is doing on the market! Now keep in mind that when they say he overdosed that does not necessarily mean he did that on purpose because the drug can accumulate in the system and the serotonin levels continuing to increase the longer he was on the drug can cause death via the elevated serotonin condition known as Serotonin Syndrome.

Elevated serotonin produces many of the symptoms Prince had been experiencing many of which could be called flu symptoms. Here is a list from several various sources: migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, argumentative behavior, agitation or restlessness, dilated pupils, changes in blood pressure, nausea and/or vomiting,
diarrhea, rapid heart rate, tremor, loss of muscle coordination or twitching muscles, shivering and goose bumps, and seizures. And here is another list of symptoms:

  • Confusion: A serious symptom that may emerge is that of mental confusion. The person may struggle with memories, conversation, and may appear to be acting drugged or downright goofy. This increased mental confusion may make it difficult for the person to perform even menial cognitive tasks.
  • Death: The reason you need to seek immediate medical help if you suspect high serotonin is to avoid death. In some cases, high levels of serotonin are fatal and could end a person’s life. Always go into the doctor or emergency room if you have taken multiple serotonergic drugs as a combination.
  • Diarrhea: Some people develop severe bouts of diarrhea from serotonin toxicity. This is a neurotransmitter that is found in the GI tract and may be involved in digestive processes. Too much serotonin disrupts the GI tract and can result in us feeling sick with diarrhea.
  • Fever/Heavy Sweating: It is common to experience changes in body temperature as a result of serotonin syndrome. You may feel physically chilled and experience body shivers, but you may simultaneously be running a fever. If you have a fever, this is a sign that your body isn’t able to handle the serotonin increase.
  • Irregular heartbeat: It was already mentioned that you may experience an increased heart rate, but you may also experience an irregular heartbeat – which is problematic. An irregular heartbeat may put excess strain on your heart functioning. This is a sign that you need to be medically evaluated.
  • Loss of balance: If you feel as if you cannot properly walk or maintain balance, this is another sign of too much serotonin. There is often significant interference in our coordination when we have high levels of serotonin in the brain.
  • Muscle twitching: Your muscles may twitch excessively as a result of serotonin elevations. If you notice that certain parts of your body start to twitch, realize that it’s probably a result of serotonin toxicity.
    Seizures: In extreme cases, some people respond to serotonin increases by having seizures. To prevent a seizure, it is recommended to do whatever you can to lower your serotonin as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
  • Unconsciousness: Some people may end up fainting or becoming unconscious if serotonin levels rise too high. If you feel faint or as if you may pass out, it’s best to get into the emergency room as soon as possible.
  • Vomiting: Some people end up feeling so nauseous with flu-like symptoms that they end up vomiting. While vomiting may be good in that it could clear some serotonin-based drugs from the system, this is a sign that a person needs immediate medical intervention
  • Weakness
  • The warning is that if you experience any of these symptoms, you or someone with you should seek medical attention immediately. Unfortunately with all the misinformation about how dangerous it is to increase serotonin levels too few doctors are even familiar with these symptoms being connected to Serotonin Syndrome. Obviously they missed many of these symptoms in Prince.

FIRST RECORDED CASE OF CHEMICALLY-INDUCED PSYCHOSIS

PRODUCED BY TWO SEROTONERGIC MEDICATIONS

One of the first cases of chemically induced psychosis was produced by two serotonergic medications prescribed by Sigmund Freud. Unless you have read my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, you are likely unaware that Freud was a cocaine addict (Now you know where the “Father of Psychiatry” got all of his insane ideas!) Thrilled with the discovery of cocaine and addicted to it himself, Freud regularly prescribed the drug to the majority of his patients. When he tried to get a friend who was hooked on morphine, off of that drug by putting him on cocaine he quickly became one of the first recorded cases of cocaine-induced psychosis. Considering that both cocaine and morphine are serotonergic drugs I would imagine that the psychosis was more a combined effect of the two drugs since the two major types of psychosis both schizophrenia and mania/Bipolar are conditions of elevated serotonin.

If you have read my book you will also recall the case of a neighbor I mentioned who took Prozac for two years and when he quit cold turkey became so manic that he thought he was an ambassador to the Queen of England for five months. I think the mayor of Los Angeles is still upset that he never got the funds promised to him during that manic state! 🙂

Several years after recovering from that manic episode after realizing what had caused it and watching his diet closely he began to smoke again and eat junk food. Once again finding himself beginning to suffer depression a well meaning friend talked him into trying Effexor. After all it is spelled differently so maybe it will work differently? NOT! Once the metabolism of serotonin is impaired by an antidepressant taking any other drug that increases serotonin can be a serious problem. About the only real difference in the Effexor, he quickly learned, was that it was even stronger. ONE PILL of Effexor was all it took for him to go into a six month manic episode this time!

He became a Scotish Crown Prince overnight and walked the neighborhood in a Scottish kilt with a sword on his side and held business meetings on my roof as he had been roof as he had been renting a room from me. (Luckily for him there were not so many officers on these drugs at that point so he did not get shot for walking around like that.) As the mania went on it became apparent that he was going to have a heart attack if his glandular system did not slow down. So we decided to try to get Noni juice down him to balance his sugar levels, stop the seizure activity and therefore stop the manic episode. The Noni worked rapidly! He began sleeping again that first night and within two weeks he was normal again. Unfortunately he did not get the Noni before he appeared on a local TV station to pledge matching donations for their Three Tenor program they were having as a fund raiser! Of course the money for that was coming to him as soon as he was to be officially crowned at my home with the invited guests being all of the Utah government leaders and leaders of the LDS Church. And he personally invited Randall Carlisle, a TV reporter for channel 4 news in Salt Lake City. (Luckily for me none of them showed up at my front door for his coronation!!!)

Now that you have that background, this is where the Fentanyl comes in and one of the many reasons I warn to never use antidepressants and pain killers together. Several years after the last manic episode I got a call from friends who were renting my home while I was living out of state. They called to let me know that they were sure this same friend was having yet another manic episode. They were renting the upstairs and he was still in the downstairs apartment. They were right. When I spoke with him I learned he had been given Flexeril, another serotonergic pain killer similar to Fentanyl, for the fibromyalgia pains he had gotten from using Prozac for two years! Not given in a hospital setting where there could be monitoring as this report says should be the case with the administration of Fentanyl. Just as with Prince. He was not given this drug in a hospital setting only. He was out on his own as well. The serotonin toxicity they can produce can be deadly as we have seen with the death of Prince. And as we saw several years ago with the death of Anna Nicole Smith’s young son, Daniel, while he was sitting in a hospital visiting his new baby sister. Daniel too died of this same medication interaction.

But this is why it is so important to not use these pain killers together with antidepressants. And many antidepressants are given as pain killers like Tramadol often is. So be careful if you are taking various pain killers that they are not mixing one of those antidepressants with a drug like flexeril or fentanyl many are given antidepressants as pain killers for fibromyalgia. Cymbalta is another common antidepressant given for pain. Or they are given pain killers after they use antidepressants which produce fibromyalgia! All so ironic since fybromyalgia has long been known as a condition of ELEVATED serotonin! Fibromyalgia is a form  of arthritis and arthritis is listed as a “frequent” side effect of antidepressants. Bottom line is that many patients are mixing these drugs and are not in a safe place at all doing so.
