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 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)
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!

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….

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…
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:

“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…
“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…
“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.
“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.”

Serotonin Reuptake is Low!
FDA heard this in 2004
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.

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: https://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
