Available Today Only – Foods That Heal Depression & Anxiety

This is an EXCELLENT piece on healing foods. Interestingly these are the same foods I turned to 45 years ago to overcome the cancer that ravaged my body & threatened my life. What surprised me was to see the amazing clarity of mind I saw almost immediately. Obviously it helped me overcome the cancer since I am still here & have felt no need to see a doctor for any reason since that time. But it has also given me insight into healing from the damage caused by the use of these deadly drugs we call antidepressants.

If Johnathan Otto introducing this video understood more about antidepressants & benzodiazepines he would not try to make this an easier change in diet by allowing those damaged by these drugs to fudge on the strictness required for healing. If he understood the highly protein binding (98%) aspect of these drugs he would understand that to flush these drugs from the  this strict change is required. I am especially concerned about the Lewy Body’s Dementia (large clumps of protein building up in the brain) suffered by Robin Williams on these drugs & the close connection of Lewy Body’s Dementia to the most deadly REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) when 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are on antidepressants.

Until we have the answer to the following questions I believe it is best to stay on the side of caution & follow the wisdom shared about the diet shared by the following experts.

1. Does the high protein binding aspect of these drugs known to accumulate at a very high rate in brain tissue produce these large clumps of protein to build up in brain tissue?

2. And does this protein binding aspect of these drugs prevent the drugs from being flushed from the body & brain?

Roseanne Barr: Was her comment medication-induced?

Roseanne was on Prozac for years & had very serious reactions to it. She was estranged from her parents because she thought they molested her when she was 6 months old! (And her parents are the sweetest people you would ever want to meet!!!) As dreams  on antidepressants  are so extremely vivid  patients begin having problems  discerning  between dreams and reality so the to begin to mix with one another making the patient believe that they are actually remembering something that has happened to them. Once finally off the antidepressants she was able to realize it was all drug-induced by her medication. (See our group on that all too common reaction to these drugs:

Antidepressant-induced False Accusations of Abuse – m.facebook.com/groups/878496472235198?)

She then went on Oprah with her mother to apologize & state publicly that it was all caused by the drugs & the biggest mistake she has ever made in her life. Sadly her father had already passed away before she got off all her meds. He knew from my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare!, that it was all being caused by the drugs, but he still never got to see their “Real Rosanne,” as they called her, once again before he died. 😢😢 It was really hard on him & it would not surprise me to learn it contributed to his death because they had been such a close knit family BEFORE these drugs entered their world.

What most do not know about Roseanne is that when she was only 16 she was hit by a car & the hood ornament was actually embedded in her forhead. Someone who has had a head injury, especially one as serious as that, should never, ever, ever, ever be given one of these drugs! They seem guaranteed to have the very worst side effects! Remember her grabbing her crotch while singing national anthem and calling it a “Prozac moment”?

But obviously she needs to be warned about not being able to take other mind-altering drugs after the serious reactions she had to antidepressants! And that would certainly include Ambien which is so notorious for also causing the REM Sleep Disorder, even though antidepressants are the very worst for causing this very deadly sleep , long known to induce both murder and suicide, where the patient acts out nightmares in a dream state!

A few listed side effects of Ambien

(Considering how many there are there is not room for them all)

Serious Ambien Side Effects: Memory, Depression, and More

Leave it to USA Today!

Of course USA Today had to carry the following article stating that the Ambien manufacturer said that racism is not a side effect of their drug! https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/05/30/roseanne-barr-blames-ambien-zolpidem-drug-real-side-effects/654683002/

All anyone needs to do is read the .medication side effects of argumentative behaviour and impaired judgement to see a connection! And I would strongly urge you to keep in mind that this is the same newspaper who apparently had no problems in taking some big advertising contract or obviously receiving compensation in some way for running a big feature article on the 10th anniversary Columbine titled “The Myths of Columbine” Of course the leading “myth” of Columbine was that Eric and Dylan, the shooters, were taking anti-depressants!

The minute the article hit the Press I contacted the reporter asking how he missed one of the biggest lawsuits of the past decade where the antidepressant manufacturer of the antidepressant Luvox was sued by Mark Taylor for their antidepressant causing Eric Harris to shoot Mark during the Columbine massacre. His reply was, “Oh yes I forgot Luvox. I will have to change that in the article!”

Of course the change was never made and was allowed to remain in the paper so that a week later it went out in there nation-wide Edition leading the country to believe bad indeed Eric and Dylan were not taking antidepressants at the time they shot up Columbine!

This is how Pharma rewrites history for us all! You now find people all the time who believe it is not true that Eric and Dylan were medicated at the time of that most notorious of all school shootings! And that is why I never pay any attention     to one word that comes from USA Today!

CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta (Neurologist) Weighs In On School Shootings & Antidepressants

 

Dr. Sanjay Gupta is an American neurosurgeon who serves as associate chief of  neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia and as assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Emory University School of Medicine.

He is also a media personality on health-related issues, and best known as CNN’s multiple Emmy Award-winning chief medical correspondent, hosting the network’s weekend health program Sanjay Gupta, M.D., and makes frequent appearances.

And he is one of the finest physicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Besides that he loves the title of my  book on antidepressants and all aspects of serotonin, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? As the book examines the research to learn if these drugs are the panacea (cure all) the drug manufactures’ marketing would have us believe as doctors hand them out or every ailment known to man , or are they a Pandora’s Box that once opened unleashing all i’s terrible plagues could never be contained again? From the story of Pandora’s Box: “All at once every evil and spiteful thing flew out like a swarm of insects infesting the Earth with pain and sorrow…t:-) hanks to Pandora life on Earth was never quite so joyful ever again.”)

Dr. Gupta as a neurologist and a professor of neurosurgery certainly would understand more about the brain & brain function than most doctors would. With that in mind LISTEN now as Dr. Sanjay Gupta speaks out about the connection between school shootings and antidepressants after the Sandy Hook school shooting….

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & FLORIDA SCHOOL SHOOTING RADIO SHOW FRIDAY MORNING

International Coalition for Drug Awareness - ICFDA Logo

SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause

Because so many are posting our database of cases of school shootings on Facebook with no explanation of the antidepressant connection, I thought I should post it here on our website as a blog so that it is easier to share with others especially with this latest school shooting in Florida and when yet another school violence episode erupts so they too will have this information to share and educate others about the involvement of antidepressants in school shootings.

President Trump’s Official Statement on Florida Shooting: https://www.whitehouse.gov/1600daily/

My Response: THIS IS NOT A GUN ISSUE AND IT IS NOT A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE! IT IS A DRUG ISSUE – PRESCRIPTION DRUG ISSUE!!! I have worked these cases as an expert for three decades and the common denominator in them all is the use of an antidepressant – drugs that work very similarly to PCP!

PCP & LSD produce hallucinations by mimicking serotonin. And how do antidepressants work? They are designed to gradually increase serotonin so you get a gradual emerging of hallucinations or psychosis. In that way it appears that the patient is going crazy rather than the drug producing the effect thereby distancing the cause and effect and avoiding personal injury lawsuits.

Creative? It sure was! Thankfully if we can get them into court we have been able to show the evidence clearly with even their own experts testifying that what we should expect from the way these drugs act upon the brain is impulsive murder and suicide! The science is clear as a bell! But no one is hearing that because there is too much money being made on these drugs.

 

Shockingly Prophetic 1999 Pharmacist Comment on Antidepressants & School Shootings in 2019

In about 1999 I was contacted by a pharmacist who said the nicest woman in town had come regularly to get her prescription of Prozac from him until she went to prison for killing her husband. This was one message I received from him that I think the whole world needs to hear……

“The symptoms I see in patients who use/abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over-confidence in one’s own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abuser’s life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton,KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now. The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individual’s persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!”

In Answer to: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”

The Question: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”

My answer: No! They come from their local doctor’s office after they have been given drugs very similar in action to a slow fuse version of PCP (Angel Dust) or LSD.

 

The Only School Shooter to Ever Speak Out

to Answer the Question, WHY?

If you watch the video below of the only school shooter to ever speak out about what happened to him while his father sits with him supporting him, you will see no broken home, no previous problems with behavior. This was a wonderful family on a farm in western Washington state with a shy 16 year old boy preparing to finish his Eagle Scout soon and then leave on a two year mission for the LDS Church. His shyness was the reason a doctor prescribed Paxil for him.

Columbine Survivor, Mark Taylor Testimony Before the FDA

 News Report: School Shooter and Victim Join Forces

It is NOT mental illness. It is NOT guns, or any

other type of weapon, that fuels the violence…

It is not mental illness. It is not guns, but rather drugs we are calling “medications” which have suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects! And I make that statement after being called as a court expert on these shootings since 1992 and spending 25 years tracking and documenting the shootings. This is the only possible cause that actually admits it can cause this. A gun does not start shooting on its own, but these drugs list homicidal ideation and suicidal ideation as a side effect. Ideation is constant ruminating obsessive and compulsive thoughts of killing along with the same thoughts of various methods of killing…thoughts compulsive enough to lead to action!

From several of the posts on these school shootings on our main web site at www.drugawareness.org I give you the following evidence to prove it is the drugs!

Understanding This Serotonin Nightmare

REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – 86% Antidepressant-Induced

REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) is a condition during which, one lacks to normal paralysis during sleep thus allowing one to act out their worst nightmare in a dream state. (Corey’s case above is a perfect example of this) It is also known that 80% of those going into the REM Sleep Disorder hurt themselves or someone else, including both murder and suicide. Yet how many are aware that 86% of those being diagnosed with this most deadly of all sleep disorders have been found to currently be taking an antidepressant?  We do have a Facebook group on this deadly sleep disorder…

No automatic alt text available.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883/

To date no research has been done to show how often this happens in antidepressant withdrawal even though RBD has long been known to be a drug withdrawal state. It should be expected to be far higher in withdrawal and yet we already have 86% involving patients currently taking these drugs.

Here is an interesting article on the REM Sleep Disorder:

Kauffman Study on antidepressants and violence:

“Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Drugs: More Risks Than Benefits”

SO WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THIS FLORIDA SHOOTER?

NOTE: For those of you who follow my work you will notice all of the obvious medication side effects and keep in mind that  63% of autistic children are prescribed antidepressants

…He is currently on suicide watch.

…He heard voices telling him what to do in the shooting (hallucinating).

…He was adopted along with his brother and it appears he was possibly suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome  or had been exposed to drugs in the womb.

…He was depressed and in therapy after his mother’s sudden death from the flu in November…

According to the judge in the hearing on the Division of Family Services record held on Monday after the shooting on Valentine’s Day  this young man  was being medicated  for depression , autism ,  and ADHD .  It appears this young shooter had been drugged with these drugs for years and most likely either got an increase in dose in November when his mother died or went off the drugs cold turkey because his mother was not there to force him to take his pills. either way  the same  resulting scenario  could be expected because the FDA has warned  that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can produce suicide, hostility,  or psychosis.  And here is neurologist, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, of CNN confirming that warning…

This was the same scenario with Eric Harris at Columbine. His dose of antidepressant was increased just two months before the shooting even though when first given one of these drugs (Zoloft) within 3 weeks Eric was reporting that he was having homicidal ideation (a listed side effect which is an obsession with killing). So they gave him a different SSRI antidepressant! Why doctors seem to think that they are going to achieve a different outcome if they spell the name of a drug differently even though they work exactly the same is beyond me!

http://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-school-shooter-methodically-moved-classrooms-execute-victims/story?id=53112929

“The 19-year-old who is accused of killing 17 people and injuring dozens more when he opened fire on a South Florida high school Wednesday afternoon told investigators that he heard voices in his head, giving him instructions on what to do to conduct the attack, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

“The voices were described as “demons” by law enforcement sources.

“Those who knew suspect Nikolas Cruz described him as a troubled teen who was largely alone in the world. An attorney for the family who had taken Cruz in after his adoptive mother died said he was “depressed” following her death but had been going to therapy, while a student who participated in Junior ROTC with Cruz described him as a “psycho” who was enthusiastic about weapons.”

Family reported he has been “troubled” for years and was in therapy & thought to be on medication. Both parents are dead, his father died when he was four & his mother died suddenly in November of the flu…

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/fla-high-school-shooter-identified-gun-obsessed-teen-article-1.3821299

“A relative said Cruz, who was adopted at birth along with his biological younger brother by an older couple, has had a hard few years. His father died when Cruz was much younger and his mother died last year, she said.

“I know he did have some issues, and he may have been taking medication,” said Cruz’s aunt, Barbara Kumbatovich, whose sister died in November. “He did have some kind of emotional difficulties.”

He had obsession with guns, killed small animals, was on medication according to his aunt.

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article200126034.html

“Roger Cruz died over a decade ago and Lynda struggled with the boys, said Barbara Kumbatovich, a former sister-in-law. “She did the best she could. “They were adopted and had some emotional issues,” she said.

“Kumbatovich said she believed Nikolas Cruz was on medication to deal with his emotional fragility. “She was struggling with Nikolas the last couple years,” she said.

“After his mother died, Cruz moved in with a friend, whose family in Broward took him in and even gave him own bedroom. He worked at a dollar store and went to a school for at-risk youth, said Fort Lauderdale attorney Jim Lewis, who is representing the family.

“Cruz had his AR-15, but the family asked that gun remain locked up in a cabinet, Lewis said. On Wednesday morning, Cruz slept in and gave only a cryptic reason why.”

THE SEROTONIN HYPOTHESIS IN ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTICS

 
If ANYONE would bother to actually read research (Something I have found EXTREMELY rare among physicians who generally just rely on drug salesmen to share info with them on new drugs!) they would find that the serotonin hypothesis in depression, anxiety, etc. is completely and totally backwards.

Low Serotonin???

 According to the pre-existing research on serotonin, long before these drugs were ever introduced to the market, serotonin is NOT low in depression, anxiety, ect. But in fact serotonin is actually elevated with all of these.

Serotonin Reuptake is Low!

What is low in depression is one’s ability to metabolize serotonin or serotonin reuptake – exactly what antidepressants are designed to impair! This is why they are called Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They inhibit the reuptake (metabolism) of serotonin! They should therefore, CAUSE everything the marketing of these drugs tells us they will cure. And patient experience over the past 30 years since these drugs were introduced proves that to be true!
 
If anyone is interested in reading that research I gathered all of that to include along with the experiences patients were reporting as a result of using these SSRI antidepressants in my book on the SSRIs & SNRIs (which also inludes the new atypical antipsychotic drugs and any others working on serotonin reuptake such as Wellbutrin, Lyrica, Gabapentin, all the Atipycal Antipsychotics, etc.) in my book, “Prozac Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!” there are 21 pages in small print of references to medical research in the back of the book to support everything said here. In fact the same material has been successfully used in court cases against these drugs. In fact serotonin is what LSD and PCP mimic in order to produce hallucinations/psychosis so as serotonin increases to higher and higher levels psychosis should be the expected end result along with this long list I shared with the FDA in the testimony below: 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, and argumentative behavior.
Warning: Even though this information may be shocking to learn if you or a loved one is on one of these medications, whatever you do NEVER make abrupt changes in the dose of any of these drugs or come off them rapidly!!! If you do so the FDA has now warned those abrupt changes can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Sadly most need years to come off safely. You can learn here on our website how and why the brain needs such a gradual withdrawal process. And if you click “store” you can find my hour and a half long MP3 on safe withdrawal for only $4.95 which can be downloaded instantly with more information on serotonin than you will get in any one book I know of except for mine above.

FDA heard this in 2004

Here I am explaining to the FDA clear back in 2004 that incorrect serotonin hypothesis & what we should expect to see in our society as a result of the widespread use of these drugs:
 

Transcript

I am Ann Blake-Tracy, head of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. I am the author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare and have testified in court cases involving antidepressants for 12 1/2 years. The last 15 years of my life have been devoted full time to researching and writing about SSRI antidepressants.

Research on serotonin has been clear from the very beginning that the most damaging thing that could be done to the serotonin system would be to impair one?s ability to metabolize serotonin. Yet that is exactly how SSRI antidepressants exert their effects.

For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism will produce 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, and argumentative behavior.

How anyone ever thought it would be “therapeutic” to chemically induce these reactions is beyond me. Yet, these reactions are exactly what we have witnessed in our society over the past decade and a half as a result of the widespread use of these drugs.

In fact we even have a whole new vocabulary as a result with terms such as “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “murder/suicide,” “going postal,” “false memory syndrome,” “school shooting,” “bi-polar” – every third person you meet anymore – along with the skyrocketing rates of antidepressant-induced diabetes and hypoglycemia.

Can you remember two decades ago when depressed people used to slip away quietly to kill themselves rather than killing everyone around them and then themselves as they do while taking SSRI antidepressants?

A study out of the University of Southern California in 1996 looked at a group of mutant mice in an experiment that had gone terribly wrong. These genetically engineered mice were the most violent creatures they had ever witnessed. They were born lacking the MAO-A enzyme which metabolizes serotonin. As a result their brains were awash in serotonin. This excess serotonin is what the researchers determined was the cause for this extreme violence. Antidepressants produce the same end result as they inhibit the metabolism of serotonin.

These are extremely dangerous drugs that should be banned as similar drugs have been banned in the past.

As a society we once thought LSD and PCP to be miracle medications with large margins of safety in humans. We have never seen drugs so similar to LSD and PCP as these SSRI antidepressants. All of these drugs produce dreaming during periods of wakefulness. It is believed that the high serotonin levels over stimulate the brain stem leading to a lack of muscle paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. The world witnessed that clearly in the Zoloft-induced murder-suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn.

Connecticut witnessed the Prozac-induced case of Kelly Silk several years ago. This young mother attacked her family with a knife, then set the house on fire killing all but her 8 year old daughter who ran to the neighbors. As she stood bleeding and screaming for help she explained, “Help! My mommy is having a nightmare!”

Out of the mouths of babes we will understand these nightmares for what they are. She understood that this was something her mother would do ONLY in a nightmare, never in reality.

This is known as a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. In the past it was known mainly as a drug withdrawal state, but the largest sleep facility in the country has reported that 86% of the cases they are diagnosing are patients on antidepressants.

Because this was known in the past as a condition manifesting mainly in drug withdrawal you should see how dangerous the withdrawal state from these drugs will prove to be. That is why it is so critical to make sure patients are weaned EXTREMELY slowly so as to avoid ANY chance of going into a withdrawal state.

WITHOUT ANTIDEPRESSANTS WOULD WE HAVE WORLD BIPOLAR DAY?

Today is supposedly World Bipolar Day. I propose that minus antidepressants we would never have seen a World Bipolar Day because NOTHING has caused more cases of Bipolar than antidepressants. Initially when the SSRI antidepressants were introduced many psychiatrists refused to prescribe Prozac or drugs like it due to their strong potential of inducing a manic psychosis. Prozac or drugs which work on the same principle as Prozac — Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil, Celexa etc., are known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and are designed to inhibit the metabolism of serotonin, thereby increasing levels of this neurotransmitter in the brain and throughout the body. Yet what so few are aware of is that the psychedelic drugs (PCP also known as Angel Dust and LSD) actually mimic serotonin in order to produce hallucinations. So as the level of serotonin increases in the system no one should be surprised to learn that they begin to suffer hallucinations and psychosis.

For example in the June 1999 edition of Clinical Psychiatry News, Dr. Malcolm Bowers, a psychiatrist at Yale had found that physicians are not paying enough attention to patient factors that could make treatment with SSRIs dangerous. He found that, “SSRI induced psychosis has accounted for eight percent of all hospital psychiatric admissions over a 14-month period…What is surprising is that this particular group of side effects is really underplayed.” That comes out to about a quarter of a million people in the late 90’s per year were being chemically induced into a Bipolar psychosis. He then said that the large majority were being undetected as antidepressant-induced psychosis and were mistakingly continued on the offending medications, meaning the drugs were being allowed to continue to exacerbate the Bipolar condition. I recall a case I worked on in the mid 90’s where a patient sued Eli Lilly for causing his Bipolar which cost him his entire inheritance. Dr. Fred Goodwin, so well known for his large text written on Bipolar Disorder testified in his behalf that this was Prozac-induced and he won his case against them.

But Dr. Bowers study was done close to two decades ago. But with the extremely widespread use of these drugs since that time it seems everyone now knows someone who has a diagnosis of Bipolar when before the introduction of the first SSRI, Prozac most of us had never heard of someone who was Bipolar or Manic-Depressive as it was once called.

Here I am discussing that and its impact upon society in the 2006 FDA hearing on antidepressants when the Black Box Warnings were increased to the age group of anyone under the age of 25:

The full transcript of this testimony before the FDA Advisory Committee in December of 2006 can be found here: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Bipolar is Actually a Sleep/Seizure Disorder

I also have a DVD on Bipolar explaining the evidence behind it being a Sleep/Seizure Disorder and detailing how antidepressants cause this Bipolar reaction to antidepressants. The cost is $4.95 and can be watched online. It also explains how there are natural ways to reverse this Bipolar reaction. That can be found here: https://store.drugawareness.org/product/bipolar-disorder-streaming/

Facebook Group – Antidepressant-Induced Bipolar and Schizophrenia

We also have a Facebook group addressing this issue and acting as a support to those going through this reaction plus helping others to understand how easily this can happen especially during abrupt changes in dose of an antidepressant. That group can be found at this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/?ref=br_rs

CHATTANOOGA SHOOTER: ON ANTIDEPRESSANTS, SLEEPING PILLS, MUSCLE RELAXANTS

chattanooga shooter

CHATTANOOGA SHOOTER, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24

Thanks to our Washington state director Jay Baadsgaard for this information from the Wall Street Journal and thanks to everyone else for sending all the other clues. As if anyone should be surprised to find these drugs at this point…..

5th paragraph reads:
“Mr. Abdulazeez, who was killed Thursday by police after they said he had opened fire at two military facilities, suffered from depression for years, his family said in a statement. He had been on and off various medications, including antidepressants and sleeping pills, a family representative said. At the time of the shooting he was taking muscle relaxants for back pain resulting from his martial-arts training, the friend said.”

For decades I have worked to explain that the hypothesis behind antidepressants is backwards – serotonin is NOT low in depression, it is elevated instead. The research is very clear on that if anyone would bother to read it. I have 21 pages of references to that research in small print to it back up. Impairing ones’ ability to metabolize serotonin, as antidepressants are designed to do, causes massive problems which you can listent to me detail to the FDA in 2004 before the Black Box Warning for suicide was added to ALL antidepressant medications ever approved by the FDA and any they might approve in the future:

Some of the research that makes it more clear than most is that done at the University of Southern California by Dr. Jean Chen Shih on mutant mice born lacking the MAO enzyme which metabolizes serotonin:

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Prince Charles Fights for Alternative Treatment for Depression, Chronic Pain, IBS, etc.

Of all those in high profile positions who have suffered some of the worst antidepressant adverse reactions ever while it all remained basically unknown both to the family and the public it is Prince Charles and Princess Diana, so I am very pleased to see Charles making the statement supporting alternatives!

Prince-Charles

Prince Charles Fights for Alternative Treatments

Prince Charles wrote: “The only reason I persist in my efforts over integrated healthcare – despite waves of invective over the years from parts of the Medical and Scientific Establishments – is because I cannot bear people suffering unnecessarily when a complimentary approach could make a real difference.”

He went on to suggest illness should be treated with a “whole person approach” rather than a “reductionist focus on the particular ailment.”

He suggested alternative remedies could be used to treat “effectiveness gaps” in mainstream medicine, especially with:

musculoskeletal problems
depression
eczema
chronic pain
irritable bowel syndrome

The Truth About the Royal Divorce

I think every woman on the planet must have watched the fairy tail wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. It was beautiful and they seemed so very happy that day. So it pained me greatly to witness what happened to the entire Royal family when Princess Di was given Prozac to cope with Postpartum Depression.

Here is the official drug company version of what happened to Diana which is straight from their front group – NAMI’s website [see this to learn the drug industry/NAMI connection: http://www.drugawareness.org/senator-grassleys-probe-discovered-nami-is-funded-81-by-pharmaceuticals/] where they blame everything on the so called “mental illnesses” Diana suffered which they are actually causing with their antidepressants. How sad and tragic the entire situation was for Charles, Diana, and their sons who were growing up believing their births were what caused their mother so many issues rather than Prozac driving her crazy!

“… Diana suffered post-partum depression after giving birth to Prince William, which she described in an interview with the BBC in 1995.”

…Diana struggled with bulimia and self-harm, both [side effects of Prozac and other antidepressants] coping mechanisms due to the stress of her marriage, as well as the pressure of being thrust into the public eye. She was constantly hounded by the paparazzi and the details around her loveless marriage were public knowledge.

“You have so much pain inside yourself that you try and hurt yourself on the outside because you want help, but it’s the wrong help you’re asking for,” Diana said. “I was actually crying out because I wanted to get better in order to go forward and continue my duty and my role as wife, mother, Princess of Wales. [Because we have LONG called antidepressants the “Divorce Pills” Diana was being given the very thing that would destroy what her goals were: “to go forward and continue my duty and my role as wife, mother, Princess of Wales.”]

“So yes, I did inflict upon myself. I didn’t like myself, I was ashamed because I couldn’t cope with the pressures.”

“Diana’s bouts of depression, eating disorders and self-harm surrounded her with stigma. She was called unstable, attention-seeking and crazy in the press.

“(My self-harm and depression) gave everybody a wonderful new label: Diana’s unstable and Diana’s mentally unbalanced,” she told the BBC.”

[When, in fact, it was the Prozac’s increasing of serotonin levels that was making her appear crazy and to self harm. Serotonin is what LSD and PCP mimic in order to produce hallucinations and psychotic breaks. In fact the chances of psychosis with Prozac are TEN times higher than the rate of psychosis from Postpartum!]

After suffering such serious reactions to Prozac as serious as throwing herself down stairs she also went on international television accusing Charles of things I am sure were a shock to him to hear. (as so many other husbands and wives of those on antidepressants have been falsely accused of everything that has happened in the lives of their mates who are taking antidepressants). The extremely vivid nightmares which patients cannot distinguish between the nightmare and reality begin to become a part of their new drug-induced reality and as Kramer points out in Listening to Prozac – the drug rewrites your history and turns “molehills into mountains” in your life – just what someone who is depressed needs, right?!

All the bulimia, self harm, false allegations, and divorce can be traced right back to Diana’s Prozac use far more than everything else it was all attributed to. So concerned was I about her with so many serious reactions coupled with the increase in adverse reactions her head injuries she must have suffered in the falls would bring on, that I feared her own use of Prozac, rather than someone else’s use of Prozac, would be the cause of her death. But thankfully Diana was also very much into alternative treatments and used essential aromatherapy oils to help her with her depression which I am sure helped to counter the negative effects of the medication. She may have also been using homeopath treatments as well.

Knowing what I know about the accusations made by those on these medications I saw right through Diana’s BBC interview and could only empathize with poor Charles since unlike most wives, she was in a position to make these allegations to the world. How much of it all was true lies to be seen, but when I have heard the exact same things repeated over and over and over again by those on antidepressants and then proven false in the end and have them recant those accusations after coming off the medications (something Diana never had a chance to do) I will stand on the side of those allegations being unfounded.

Besides that I knew something of Charles’ character because I dated an incredible young doctor from Austria who had just spent a week as the honored guest at Buckingham Palace just before I met him and we began to date. He was being honored for his work by coming to spend a week with Charles. He had nothing but good to say about him. He was extremely impressed with him as a person and with his great intellect. As well as I know this doctor I know him to have incredible insight into others and have never had any reason to doubt what he shared with me about Charles and his character.

Tragically Diana lost her life to Prozac when her driver,Henri Paul, suffered out of character compulsions for alcohol on the drug. Although described by all who knew him as a non-drinker on Prozac Henri began to drink to the point that he was treated with a medication to help him stop drinking and his blood alcohol at the time of the accident was three times the legal limit!

The compulsions for alcohol were the first thing to catch my attention with Prozac as I witnessed over and over non-drinkers becoming alcoholic almost overnight when placed on antidepressants. [You can read about the serotonin-induced alcohol compulsions here: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssris-and-alcohol/] So I called the police in Paris and told them I had no doubt that the driver was indeed on Prozac and they should check. A week later the police made the public statement that they had found that Henri Paul was on Prozac at the time of the crash. The truth is that it was Prozac that destroyed Princess Di’s life and robbed her of life itself in the end!
