To ease the heartache of her first child's stillbirth, Kelli Montgomery chose rigorous exercise, yoga and meditation over the antidepressants and sleeping pills that her physicians immediately suggested.

The developing of psychological sickness for medical benefit and management of the community needs to be inquired.

Whatever you think, Autism is not caused by vaccines as that study was debunked not too long ago. Has more to do with genetics than anything else though some indicators of chemicals in the environment are possible but the strongest evidence is genetic defect.
My wife and I have 11 children and all vaccinated, not a one is defective, 9 have graduated university and are doing well. One is still in university and the youngest is in the last year of high school.
Autism is now 1 in 50 USA. Your grandchildren are at risk. By the time they arrive autism will affect 100% of U.S. children. Consider yourself fortunate, but your children may marry others who are suseptable to vaccine injury. Ask yourself WHY the USA has a vaccine injury compensation program that has awarded autistic children as long as the "A" word is not used?

The Wakefield assertion in the Lancet in 98 has been completely debunked on so many levels and even so it only claimed the MMR vaccine as a cause, not the numerous other vaccines.
There is no study by any reputable government, other public or private organization of any sort that claims there is any link.
As a doctor of Psychiatry I offer my unexpurgated opinion that such a notion is false and will add that there is no such thing as ADD or ADHD either.
The latter is born out as evidenced by the medical community diagnosing children as young as 4 and 5 with bi polar, as well as schizo discorders, outright schizophrenia diagnosis, and so on in leu of ADD or ADHD. Parents and schools want a lable on unruley children so they can get monies like disability and special education monies. Since Social Security does not recognize ADD or ADHD as a disability anymore and do not give SSI for it the crooked medical/pharma community has gone to obsurd primary diagnosis and the inevitable medication following.
Once upon a time a drug addict diagnosis garnered SSI but 20 years ago the drug addicts were re diagnosed with assorted mental illness because Social Security was cutting the drug addicts off.

Its psychiatry diagnosing these conditions. These kids are physically ill from vaccine poisoning and you clowns call it mental illness. Get out of the way and let REAL doctors take over instead of prescribing pills that will never heal them. Psychiatry is part of the problem and zero part of the solution.

No it vaccine makers who have harmed children for decades then you psychiatrists call these children autistic, ADHD etc and since you have ONLY one treatment since selling out to Pharma, you use your bogus treatment to make it worse and create Adam Lanza and James Holmes and the carnage continues.

Keep dreaming, do you even realize how obsurd most of that really is? Perhaps you feel Treppening or Bloodletting is better. Personally I rarely prescribe medications, I prefer therapy and behaviour modification and find more success with those than medications.

An Einstein would have also picked up the spelling of Behaviour as well. My initial education was at a prep school in Britain called The Elms. I returned to Austin with my parents when aged 13 and have not relinquished the Queen's English.

Your on the correct path of understanding. Clearly the mind drugging has had political overtones since the Bush Sr presidency and began with the Public Education Act and Social Service support 1989 (all states) USA.

There is no science to the Mental Health Industry.

Why your kid is drugged in school

How it works:

The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.

Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.

All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.
